SYNCGUIDE unites the product information of manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers, employees and customers.
The figure illustrates SYNCGUIDE solution architecture. It contains the Master Data Storage, Validation Engine, Conversion Engine, Workflow Engine, References, and the Metadata. This information is made available through the Security and Access Layer.
The Security & Access Layer enables authorized users to have customized views (i.e., views that contain a subset of the information). The information is made available both upstream and downstream through an Enterprise Service Bus—using mechanisms such as PubSub, Web Services, or Batch FTP—that will allow you to collect the information or publish it to your consumers whether they are supply chain, eCommerce, publishing, or stores.
