    We are increasingly confronted with a growing number of EDI standards and new exchange technologies - such as API - in which the equivalent functions of ordering, invoicing, etc, are enabled.

  • Data Services Strategy overview: Building tomorrow today

    Services have been developed over time to facilitate the adoption of GS1 standards. These services have been created locally, regionally or globally, developed and launched as needed. As a result, the services offered by GS1 around the world lack a common integrated vision to best serve the industry needs and are costly to maintain. Our goal is to continue to serve industry, enable growth, process efficiency, and optimise costs. To do this, we will create a GS1 platform, that is user-centric and easily consumable and that unifies GS1 Data Services offerings. This session will provide an update on the development of the GS1 Global Data Services Strategy, worked hand-in-hand between GS1 Member Organisations and Global Office.

  • UDI and data quality plus an overview of the GDSN pharma use case, continued

    (Continued session) The U.S. and the European Union have regulation for identification and registration of medical devices: the Unique Device Identification (UDI) system. Many other countries (e.g., China, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan) have started or are continuing to work on a similar system. The goal of this session is to assist MOs in expanding their knowledge of how to use GS1 standards to support the implementation of UDI requirements and how to use GDSN Data Pools to ensure a high level of data quality. This workshop will help MO understand how to provide the needed support to existing and new members as well as local authorities in the use of GS1 standards. In addition, this workshop will provide an overview of the GDSN use case for Pharma and how to jump start, or accelerate, data synchronization in the Pharmaceutical industry in your country.

  • Improving data quality: Advancements that support GS1 Member Organisations

    Data quality is everybody’s business. So, let us all work together on identifying quality issues and improving overall data quality.
     
    We have started a global initiative, taking small steps, to unambiguously determine what aspects of data quality are important to you and your organisation, and how we can support the Member Organisations with tools and metrics to create more awareness of the criticality of data quality and communicate the current quality metrics to their member companies and related brand owners. In this session you will also hear directly from Master Data Services Certified Member Organisations about what they learned through the certification process and how one region aligned successfully.

  • Making GS1 an essential building block in the digital world with API/Web-services, continued

    (Session continued) Business processes are becoming ever more digital. The GS1 standards that are the foundation in the traditional link between physical and digital will also have to become more digital. Together with MOs we will explore what services based GS1 may offer and several GS1 MOs indeed in some cases already offer. We will also discuss how we may develop these new API / Web services at the speed of the Digital World.
