Lenovo has chosen Talend Data Fabric to streamline product and inventory data from suppliers, vendors, and manufacturing as well as repositories, warehouse, and e-commerce functions, in its global Product Catalog Centre.

Lenovo has an inventory of more than five million unique product IDs or items, which was previously distributed over disparate databases and a variety of enterprise resources and inventory management systems.

“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,” said Robin Li, IT senior manager, Lenovo. “Talend’s open source architecture gave us great flexibility and stood out for its speed and effectiveness in handling massive volumes data.”

Using the new solution, Lenovo can deliver a unified view of inventory to its global network of employees, partners, and major account customers. With this streamlined data, Lenovo can now accurately identify the availability of products and advise customers on product delivery, repairs and replacement schedules in real time.

“We are delighted to be supporting such an innovative company and helping them gain an actionable view of their data,” said Kamal Brar, senior vice president, Asia Pacific and Japan, Talend. “As Lenovo proves, using a modern data architecture not only drives business efficiencies, but also creates a superior customer experience.”
