PIM – Even The Best Companies Struggle With Data Quality

PIM stands for Product Information Management. There are applications built specifically to deal with product definition since it is very critical for online retailers to have accurate and comprehensive data so that their visitors can make the right decision. Similarly, it’s also in the best interest of the manufacturers to capture accurate and comprehensive data in a timely manner to provide their upstream supply-chain parters.

My notepad crashed recently so I am trying to shop for a new one. After some research I ended up at HP Pavilion DV6500T Entertainment 15.4″ Notebook PC and the funny thing was, when you go to the Technical Details, it contained the following

” Special Features

* These are the additional features. Yada yada yada. Wuba wuba wuba”

I wonder if this is a funny place-holder TODO text used by the manufacturer (HP), or by the retailer (Amazon.com). Anyway, will be doing more research for HP Laptops.
