Using Talend, Lenovo’s global Product Catalog Centre is now able to deliver a unified view of inventory to a global network of employees, partners, and major account customers.
Talend is used to manage Lenovo's five million-plus unique product IDs or items distributed over disparate databases and a variety of enterprise resources and inventory management systems.
Robin Li, IT senior manager, Lenovo, said, “We needed an easy-to-use and agile solution that could connect data in real-time from a variety of sources and then efficiently transfer that data to our global inventory management and procurement centre. Talend’s open source architecture gave us great flexibility and stood out for its speed and effectiveness in handling massive volumes data.”
By streamlining product and inventory data from various sources, Lenovo employees, partners, and customers can now identify the availability of products and advise customers on product delivery, repairs and replacement schedules in real time.
