This week, unfortunately, I have to cancel the technical call. I have some urgent work to complete this week and haven’t been able to carve out the time for Sandpiper.

Technical Call Agenda 2022-06-23

This week, it’s time for us to dig into PIES. Not the delicious, calorie-laden treats so artfully prepared by bakers around the world — no, I’m talking about PIES, the exciting XML product information exchange standard. We’ve reached a good point on our ACES granulation strategy work. I’m in the process of updating the official… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda 2022-06-23

Technical Call Agenda 2022-04-28

This week will be a working session, particularly revisiting the topic of granulating data with a non-UUID method like part number. Last week we confirmed that this is an important method because some organizations will need to do part-based data updates to slot into existing integration processes. This part number granulation is going to cross… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda 2022-04-28

Technical Call Agenda 2022-04-21

This week we’ll talk about the challenges of granulating ACES at the part level to safely handle part branding, a similar challenge facing PIES data. Also, I’ve been working on a formalized strategy specification and will run through that before we get into the deepest of the weeds elsewhere. Come join us at our usual… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda 2022-04-21
