MNS Beta Release

Posted by Lydia Vasilyeva 2 years, 9 months ago in Catalog Processing, eCommerce, MNS / 1 comment

A common problem in eCommerce when dealing with product catalogs from multiple sellers is slight variations of manufacturer name. As trivial as it sounds, it presents a significant problem with categorization and classification of products, grouping of similar products/items, enriching the product attributes with standard data (eg. desc, pictures) through 3rd party catalog enrichment sources and representation of products/items for easy finding/shopping

Open Source and Governemnt

Posted by Lydia Vasilyeva 2 years, 10 months ago in Government, Open Source / 1 comment

Not even 10 years ago, if you brought up some open source solutions in a sales pitch to the government you wouldn’t be taken seriously. No one really considered open source software as a viable solution and didn’t want to risk their enterprise on picking a solution that they thought were supported by a bunch of “amatuer developers”. After all, why would a solid developer write the code for free instead of charging for it and why would any serious company invest capital into writing code that they would then give away for free?
