How the cloud changes Product Information Management The cloud has profoundly changed how product data is created and syndicated between manufacturers and retailers across the globe. From decreasing the Time-to-Market of products to reducing the cost of managing the systems required for Product Information Management, the cloud has provided all sizes of businesses the opportunity to improve their data quality. Yet data quality is still not getting significantly better even as retailers put more pressure on their vendors to provide more content.
