This session will focus on the GS1 Web Vocabulary including what it does, why we chose to build it, and how it is being used by manufacturers and retailers and learnings. The GS1 Web Vocabulary was built not just to extend GS1's existing product information standards, but also to extend them to the semantic web.
- Intro to GS1 and our Master Data Standards
- Overview of GS1 Vocabulary Standard and how it extends schema.org.
- How it can and is being used by a variety of companies
- Challenges in creating a product master data ontology
- Implementation learnings
