In our latest STEP MDM Forum at foryouandyourcustomers MelbourneBosch Power Tools shared great insights on how they matured their business capabilities through a Product Information Management (PIM) system implementation and we also learned about the new features of STEP version 11.

Bernhard Mueller, CEO at foryouandyourcustomers, hosted this session for a varied audience of Master Data Managers, Data Engineers, Data Stewards, Solution Architects, and Technical Specialists.

Over the course of 60 minutes, the webinar covered two main topics :

Dave Edson from Stibo Systems gave a good walkthrough of the latest Stibo Systems STEP version 11. The highlights included the SaaS infrastructure (so you don’t have to manage your own on-premise hardware), improved user experience (with a simpler WebUI) and an overview of the PDX Syndication (which helps with getting product content out to your channels).

Bosch, one of the biggest global manufacturers, shared their journey of implementing Product Information Management (PIM) to enhance their business capabilities. The key value they saw from this project was to establish a Single Source of Truth that helped improve data quality and time to market for their products. Using strong change management, they were able to consolidate knowledge across teams and functions to enter data once (therefore quicker) and build a richer record of product information to serve multiple channels. This was really important to Bosch as they set standards where new tools were “only ready for market when the physical product and the digital product are both ready”.
