Yes, It's Still About the Data

SDC LogoWhen I was first introduced to the magical, nerdy, technical world of product-data management, the newly minted Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association data standards were just gaining traction. The biggest players on the replacement-parts side of the business were diving in, and the SEMA market was barely interested. But thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, the seeds of data management were planted, and now, nearly 20 years later, momentum is building and hundreds of SEMA companies are embracing their data-management obligations.

This directory is designed to guide data users to brands that have successfully undertaken the challenge to manage their product data, and to continue to expand reference as more brands are added to the SDC repository.
