SAP NetWeaver MDM GDS 2.1
Global data synchronization (GDS) is continuous harmonization of data attribute values between two or more trade partners. The result of this synchronization is that the data attribute values are the same in all connected systems. Global data synchronization enables the seamless exchange of data with standardized data pools. It builds on GTIN and GLN data and is designed to increase the transparency of data between manufacturers and retailers.
GDS is a sophisticated, collaborative business practice that is being rapidly adopted by trading partners worldwide. By adopting a common set of global standards, defined by the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN), manufacturers and retailers can optimize their business processes through complete, comprehensive communication through data pools that are in turn linked to a single global registry.
Manufacturers make their product catalogs available to the data pools and retailers are then able to link to these data pools and synchronize their data automatically.
