The world's leading market research firm for tracking point-of-sale data in technical consumer goods and the entertainment media markets, GfK Retain and Technology France bases its research on data gathered from thousands of retailers, resellers, and distributors in more than 80 countries. To deliver the most accurate and useful reports to its growing customer base, GfK needs to aggregate, cleanse, and integrate 1,700 data files or more each month.

Challenges

  • Collect data from thousands of sources to generate strategic reports for customers
  • Ensure data is accurate, reliable, and trustworthy
  • Exploit new data sources to support new product development
