Founded in 1962 and owned by London-based Dixons Carphone, Elkjøp (known as Elgiganten outside of Norway) is the largest consumer electronics retailer in the Nordic countries with 400 stores and 8,400 employees.

“Informatica’s solutions make it very simple to automate and validate product data from suppliers and get products to market much faster with better quality data.  This in turn enhances the customer experience across various channels, including online, catalogs, brochures and in stores.”
