Foreword
Real-time commerce means optimizing time-to-market by using a process for highly automated
data improvements and controlled steps of generating high quality data. Informatica PIM 7.1 is
following this idea consequently with its new features and improvements.
The new data quality dashboard provides a comprehensive overview on the quality and status of
your data according to the quality rules defined in general or specific to your output channels. It
allows a fast drill down to the particular areas of problem.
The channel previews, no longer only provide a view on how your data will look like in the context
of the certain output channel. Now the data is also directly editable in it. This provides a unique
way of envisioning, validation and mastering product data.
Informatica BPM - Business Process Management can control the process from data onboarding
to omnichannel output. With this business process management enterprise workflows for PIM
(running DQ validations, performing automated data cleansing and distributing task) and beyond
can be created.
A now verified IBM WebSphere Commerce accelerator makes the integration into the latest
version of IBM’s WCS much easier and allows delta updates scheduled as well as particular
updates on demand. The Informatica GDSN Accelerator additionally simplifies the connection to
GS1 based GDSN data pools.
Many more new features and improvements are provided with PIM 7.1 which strengthens the
approach of high quality data onboarding and improves the user experience.
Find all the details in the following release notes.

PIM Desktop
Informatica GDSN Accelerator (Informatica B2B and PIM)
The GS1 Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) provides a powerful
environment for secure and continuous synchronisation of accurate data between
trading partners who have access to a GDSN certified data pool.
Manufacturers and Suppliers have now the capability to ensure their data is not only of high
quality but also confirms to GS1 standards. The Informatica GDSN accelerator offers the
possibility to provide this high quality data directly to a certified data pool for synchronisation with
their trading partners.
The quality of the data can be ensured by the Data Quality rules engine of the PIM system. It
leverages the GPC hierarchy that conforms to GS1 standards for communication with the data
pools.
All GDSN related activities is encapsulated within PIM can be initiated from there it self.. The
product data can easily be transferred to the data pool and released to a specific trading partner
or made public for all recipients of a Target Market.
The solution offers great flexibility to map item attribute to/from the GDSN standard and can be
tailored to the needs of the customer requiring industry specific or optional fields.
The accelerator will be available in Q3/2014 and will be based on Informatica PIM and the
Informatica B2B tools.

Informatica PIM – Release Notes – Version 7.1
IBM WebSphere Commerce Accelerator
Informatica PIM has officially been recognized as a verified solution for IBM WebSphere
Commerce Version 7 FP7.
The commerce accelerator supports the new IBM attribute dictionary model that enables reduced
maintenance and reuse across multiple products. When a common attribute in the dictionary is
changed it is reflected in the attribute for all products in the catalog thereby simplifying the
process of keeping attribute names and values consistent across a commerce site.
It also enables a commerce site to provide complex search, filter and product comparison
capabilities which helps provide enhanced service to the customer.
The accelerator can be used to simplify and expedite the implementation of common use cases
by providing support for hierarchies, descriptions, media assets pricing information, marketing
associations and attributes out of the box.
The built in data quality module and the preview templates of the PIM application ensures the
quality, envisioning of the product on how it would display on the commerce site to take the
appropriate action and conformity of the data which is transferred to the commerce site.
Different export scenarios pertaining to full catalog, delta or the possibility to trigger the
publication of selected products instantly with just a click are supported.
Overall it helps improve operations by providing sophisticated capabilities to manage products
and catalogs to deliver a seamless, cross-channel shopping experience for commerce.
Informatica PIM - Release Notes – Version 7.1

Editable Multichannel Previews
The multichannel preview functionality of Informatica PIM enables users to envision products in
the context of a particular output channel (e.g. web shop or mobile) even before publishing it.
With the release of Informatica PIM 7.1 this has been taken a step further allowing the data
maintenance directly in the context of the channel preview. With this "What You See Is What You
Get" experience data maintenance becomes an easy task for light and management users who
are interested in seeing directly how the products will be displayed, e.g. for correction or approval
workflows.
In PIM Desktop it can be centrally defined which fields should be editable in a preview, allowing a
focused user guidance.
PIM Desktop Enhancements
With 7.1 it is possible to provide a more collaborative way to work with tasks. The users can not
only see their own task or tasks assigned to their user group but also see what their team
members are currently working on. This requires an additional right "Show tasks of all users of
assigned user group".
Also the merge results have been improved. The user has now access to the new, unchanged,
or updated items of the merge process; in addition he can access the items which have been
rejected because of insufficient data quality.
For administrative users a performance analysis has been added for exports. Here it is possible
to have detailed information which parts of the export took a particular amount of time with the
possibility to drill down even to see the execution of single functions.
Also the export editor shows the field identifier which simplifies the creation of an export template
by providing the certainty to select the right field.

Informatica PIM – Release Notes – Version 7.1
Informatica Data Quality Integration
Maintain Standardization Dictionaries in PIM Desktop UI
It is now possible to maintain standardization dictionaries through the PIM Desktop UI to enable a
central management of synonym and correction values for data quality rules in order to realize
consistent data standards for product data. A standardization dictionary that is maintained
through the PIM Desktop UI may exist of either one or two columns. The integrated Data Quality
module of PIM can work with such reference data in order to use look up checks that will search
for a specific key value. The values can then be used to match e.g. a standardization value or
reference other values stored in that same row.
One example is a standardization dictionary for color values. If a data quality rule takes the value
of the attribute “Color” (sky blue) as an input the system can check this against the dictionary to
look up the standardized value for that particular color (blue). Usage scenarios like manufacturer
name standardizations or market specific glossaries are other examples.
Standardization Dictionaries can be imported through the file based import of PIM as well as
when importing data quality rules. After updating the values of a dictionary it can be synchronized
through the UI in order to make the changes effective for the next execution of a data quality rule.
Informatica PIM - Release Notes – Version 7.1
7
Enhanced Triggers for DQ Rule Execution
It is now possible to add the purpose of an import mapping to an Import Completed data quality
trigger configuration. This allows setting up one central trigger for automated data quality rule
executions based on whether the import was executed in context of the Supplier Portal, a hot
folder or manual user actions.
Additionally an Export Started trigger has been added to the standard set of Data Quality triggers.
This allows defining that all data that is about to be exported through a specific PIM Export Profile
has to be valid in context of the defined rules for that trigger configuration. Otherwise the data set
will be rejected from its export.
Auto-Assignment of PIM Fields to Input and Output Ports of DQ Rules
It is now possible to assign PIM fields input ports or output ports used by a data quality rule. This
enables that all the ports that contain such meta information will be automatically assigned to the
corresponding PIM field when selecting a rule through the PIM Desktop UI.
The definition which general data type of PIM should be pre-selected for the input ports and
which one for the output ports is set in the rule description using the Informatica Developer UI
(rule design environment):
<Entity identifier for Input Ports>|< Entity identifier for Output Ports >|<Actual Rule Description>
(e.g. ArticleStructureMap|Article|This rule makes some structure checks)
Now it is possible to define for each of the ports the corresponding repository name of the PIM
field in a similar way: <Repository name of the PIM field>|<Actual Port Description Text> (e.g.
<Article.ShortDescription(9)>|This rule makes checks on the short description of an item)
Set Free Text Values as Input Parameter of a DQ Rule
With PIM 7.1 it is now possible to set a static string value for an input port of a data quality rule
configuration in PIM. This enables to work with variables when building rules and leads to a
higher level of flexibility. One example might be a check length rule that takes a string value as an
input port that defines the size limit of the field to be validated. This size limit can then be set
individually and per rule configuration in the PIM Desktop UI.
Access Root Entity Fields from Sub Entity Level on Rule Configuration
When setting the data type for an input or output port of a data quality rule to a sub-entity (e.g.
attributes of a product) it is now possible to assign fields from the parent object (e.g. the product
itself) as well as from its sub entity to the ports of that rule. This allows setting up rules that
enumerate over an individual number of sub entity objects of a PIM object while still being able to
access the data fields of the parent object.
Performance Improvements
By enhancing caching algorithms for the execution of data quality rules the overall system
performance has been improved significantly.
8
Informatica PIM – Release Notes – Version 7.1
DQ Rule Package
Four new data quality rules have been added to the PIM rule package.
Check for missing Attributes of a Product

Informatica Business Process Management Integration
In the new release, the integration of Informatica PIM with Informatica Business Process
Management (BPM) takes the first step in tackling the issue of blending the defined business
process within PIM as part of the enterprise business process for supplier management, new
product introduction and onboarding, product maintenance, marketing and price management to
name a few. It enables companies in providing better visibility of their business as it relates to
product innovation and management across the enterprise thereby improving time to market, cut
down silos, optimizes processes where applicable.
A defined business process for example onboarding of new items as illustrated below can be
modeled in Informatica BPM.
10
Informatica PIM – Release Notes – Version 7.1
Process Modeled in Informatica BPM
Some of the new capabilities of the integration are
•
Availability of Task API’s - Task management Rest API’s is now enabled. Now PIM
tasks can now be created/updated/deleted externally from other applications such as
Informatica BPM.
•
Trigger external applications – PIM can call external applications like Informatica BPM
using Rest API, thereby enabling PIM to be part of overall enterprise process.
•
Import every PIM entity by Rest API – Informatica BPM can import all Product related
entities using Rest API
•
Execution of Data Quality rules - Data Quality rules defined within PIM can be
executed from Informatica BPM to enforce quality standards.
•
Enforcement of Business Rules – Informatica BPM can trigger/execute defined
business rules as part of the process once a task is completed and needs to decide the
next step of action.
•
Merge Operations by REST - Once an Item has gone through the business process and
is ready to be put in the Master catalog, Informatica BPM can now execute the merge
operation.

PIM Web
Editable Multichannel Previews
With the new version it is possible to edit directly inside the channel previews, which has been
introduced in PIM Web with Version 7.0.03. This gives the user an even more integrated
experience and more efficiency in data maintenance.
The responsible product manager can see how the product would appear in a specific output
channel i.e. in the web shop or on the mobile commerce site and can change descriptions,
attributes, prices etc. directly in context of this visualized target channel. He can give its approval
by simply changing the status. A work flow could be triggered by the approval and send the
respective data directly to the output channel e.g. to the web shop.
12
Informatica PIM – Release Notes – Version 7.1
The preview templates are based on export format templates and are stored in PIM Desktop. It is
possible to handle single as well as multi item previews.
All available fields can be used building up the templates and any CSS-Style to preview the
channels. Fields get editable by adding in the export template a specific function in front of it.
Existing templates can be easily modified to make them editable.
Informatica PIM - Release Notes – Version 7.1
13
Informatica Data Quality Integration
Data Quality Dashboard for PIM Web
The PIM Web UI has been extended by a Data Quality Dashboard. The Dashboard gives users
an aggregated view on the quality of the product data by visualizing all results of data quality rule
executions at a glance. All metrics presented through the dashboard are based on status
information from data quality rule executions against the selected objects.
The pie chart combines the quality status of each object presented in the main table of PIM Web
across all data quality channels the user has selected. The widget to the right shows the
combined data quality status per channel and allows drilling down to the rule results defined for
each of them.
All elements of the dashboard may be used to filter and drill down into sub sets of the overall data
set which enables powerful analysis and data mastering capabilities. By this the user is able to
quickly identify the sub set of objects among thousands that needs to be fixed given by the rule
status (e.g. drill down to the ten items that haven’t yet been classified from the 10,000 I just see
on my dashboard).
Some of the major business use cases in that context are:
 Data stewards are able to fix large amounts of data by having a dashboard that guides them
through the data sub sets that need to be improved
 Management gets quick access to an overview regarding the constitution of the product data
in context of a given catalog, assortment or taxonomy/structure(group)
 Suppliers are able to see how good the information they have been providing is matching the
requirements of the PIM company like completeness and richness
 Supplier managers from the PIM company have quick access to a quality overview regarding
the data that came from different suppliers
14
Informatica PIM – Release Notes – Version 7.1
Execute Data Quality Checks in PIM Web
It is now possible to execute data quality rules through the PIM Web UI. This enables the manual
execution of one or a group of data quality rules against any number of objects stored in PIM.
Access detailed Data Quality Status Information in PIM Web
With PIM 7.1 the user may now access details on each of the results of the different data quality
executions per object via the new Quality Status tab. This tab lists all data quality statuses
available per object in one table just as the Quality Status view in the PIM Desktop UI.
Informatica PIM - Release Notes – Version 7.1
15
Visualize Data Quality Statuses Information inside the Main Table of PIM
Web
The new version of PIM web allows adding quality status information as a new field to the main
table of the UI. This is done by adding the fields that should be visible for the users to the
article.listmodel.xml or product.listmodel.xml configuration file for PIM Web.
The following shows an example of how the main table has been extended to also show the
quality status per object for the web shop data quality channel:
<field identifier="Article.Status" sortable="true" caption="Status Web
Shop">
<transitionField identifier="QualityStatusSummary.Status">
<logicalKey identifier="StatusSummaryType.LK.Channel" value="Web
shop"/>
</transitionField>
</field>
16
Informatica PIM – Release Notes – Version 7.1
Enhanced Navigation Paradigm
With the help of clickable links the navigation paradigm has been enhanced to ease the
navigation between products, variants and items. It is more obvious what parent-child relations do
exist and easy to switch between the different entities.
A new color coding for the different entities emphasizes this once again. It is possible to configure
different colors for the entities affecting the table header and entity icons in the references detail
tab.
Informatica PIM - Release Notes – Version 7.1
17
Improvements in Task Management
In the area of task management the new version offers some minor improvements. The user can
now decide if they want to create a new task or add objects to an existing static task.
Furthermore a new task node was generally introduced, which groups all tasks of the user of my
user group(s).

Supplier Portal
Media Asset Validation on Upload
By leveraging the workflow capabilities of Informatica Media Manager it is now possible to define
data quality checks for media assets that have been uploaded to PIM by suppliers. The workflow
can be set up depending on individual needs and data policies. Some examples are file type
checks, minimum resolution or check on size and dimensions. If a workflow for media assets
provided through the supplier portal has been created the results of the checks are presented to
the supplier in the protocol after the upload has finished.
There are three basic log levels that can be used:



Info
Log a general message to the upload protocol
Warning
Log a message to the upload protocol and flag the asset
Error
Log a message to the upload protocol and deny the import of that asset to the Supplier
Catalog
Informatica PIM - Release Notes – Version 7.1

administrator in an external system
UI Customization Sample
Additional navigation bar entry and access to external supplier data


Show and edit supplier data from an external system directly inside Supplier Portal
Add navigation bar entry to access the external page
External Authentication Sample
Log in for suppliers using their Salesforce account



A supplier can use the Salesforce account that has been given to him by the PIM company
During first login he needs to confirm that Supplier Portal will access some of the account
information from him
After the first log in the minimal set of needed account information is created in Supplier
Portal. All things that can be used from the Salesforce account will still be accessed from
there for the actual login
Improved Deployment
Several maintenance and optimization tasks have been realized to improve the overall
deployment capabilities of the Supplier Portal.



Administrators can now configure where language packs are loaded from
(e.g. external file folder)
Administrators can now configure where email templates are loaded from
(e.g. external file folder)
