Item Data Ingestion Team

The Item Data Ingestion team consumes item data attribution from multiple sources serving Target+ and the Merchandising organization. The team also provides qualitative analysis models using Machine Learning (ML) to understand when data does not meet Target's requirements to support a sellable item throughout its entire lifecycle at Target. This alerts Target and the sellers to issues where they can be driven to proper resolution in a timely manner. The team plays a key role in enabling Target+ while keeping a strongly curated set of 3rd party items on the site, while also enabling faster turnaround of new items into the Target assortment universe.
