The GDSN community has been learning and working together to take the necessary steps in order to migrate their data from their current GDSN implementation to the new implementation. See how they are progressing below.
To ensure ample time for a successful migration, GS1 has established and shared a framework of milestones to guide data pools and trading partners towards a successful transition to GDSN Major Release 3.
This timeline, from May 2015 to the scheduled release in May 2016, is a suggested framework. Actual milestone timing may vary depending on the unique circumstances of each organisation.
To illustrate the GDSN community's progress towards GDSN Major Release 3, we created dashboards on three key performance measurements. These dashboards use quarterly self-reported information from certified data pools. Comparing the data collected in March 2015 to the most recent January survey, we are pleased to share some encouraging migration insights.
"What percentage of the data pools' communities are aware of GDSN Major Release 3?"
In January 2016, 73% of data pools reported over 75% awareness among their customers.
Note: Sliding Scale based on report dates (percentages increase closer to May 2016)
"What percentage of your trading partner community will be ready to migrate to GDSN Major Release 3 in May 2016?"
In January 2016, two-thirds (67%) of the data pools reported that over 80% of their trading partners would be ready by the May 2016 launch data.
"What percentage of your trading partners have started scheduled testing with your data pool?"
In January 2016, 50% of data pools reported that over 75% of their trading partners have scheduled or begun testing.
