Stibo Systems, a master data management (MDM) solutions provider, has updated its award-winning MDM platform, STEP Trailblazer 8.3, and added capabilities to Product MDM, Customer MDM, and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)—providing enhanced ease of use, built-in business workflows, and advanced integrations that speed customers’ time to value.

As the market continues to evolve and consumers’ expectations increase, this latest release delivers capabilities in high demand, allowing companies to deliver a faster return on their MDM investment. To meet these demands, Stibo Systems continues to enhance and provide robust and flexible data models, standard workflows, and optimized user experiences based on decades of business-focused expertise serving highly competitive markets. 

This latest release includes the following enhancements:

  • Product MDM allows organizations to acquire and consolidate product data from a variety of internal and external systems. Businesses can fully manage and enrich every aspect of each product record, while distributing and synchronizing this master data across all critical enterprise channels. Advanced features improve ease of use and data quality with guided navigation and an enhanced global search bar as well as built-in integration capabilities to Acrolinx and automated workflows with integration to translation services such as SDL.
  • Customer MDM serves as a central repository for B2B and B2C customer data, while leveraging matching and linking algorithms in association with business rules to merge and resolve disparate records from source systems into a single view (“golden record”) of the company or customer. This release further enables the solution’s Customer 360 capabilities by providing a unified Customer MDM experience with intuitive, icon-based navigation, advanced record merging capabilities, and a configurable records-matching algorithm.
  • SpirePLM provides flexible data models and processes to efficiently manage products from ideation to end-of-life—optimizing new product development and change management processes, while also promoting collaboration throughout the organization. This release targets the apparel design process, enhancing collaboration across the enterprise by using digital storyboards to convey concepts, themes, and motivations behind new products.
  • STEP Trailblazer 8.3 platform delivers powerful enhancements, including API improvements and business functions that boost STEP Trailblazer’s openness and connectivity. An easily accessible configuration governance wiki eases the process of capturing, collaborating, and contributing configuration information throughout the platform, while the in-memory database component optimization accelerates system start-up times and search performance.

Release 8.3 of the STEP Trailblazer platform and the Product MDM, Customer MDM, and SpirePLM solutions are available from Stibo Systems and all authorized distributors. The individual solutions can be delivered standalone with the STEP Trailblazer platform, or they can be delivered in an integrated package. For more information, visit
