In this episode, Susan Walsh and I discuss managing supplier data and how it relates to doing laundry and cleaning your closet. Listen in as we talk about common issues with the upkeep of supplier data, the importance of clear visibility into supplier data, and what's between the spreadsheets.
Susan Walsh is the Classification Guru. She also goes by many other names such as fixer of dirty data, creator of COAT, MD, mistress of data expert and spin data classification, supplier normalization and taxonomy customization, TEDx speaker, and author of "Between the Spreadsheets", coming out in September 2021.
