We are happy to introduce you to Jeremy Peterson. He is one of the inriver Champions and a partner.
We asked him 10 questions 👇
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Workwise, I have been with Ntara for 9.5 years. In the beginning, I worked on e-commerce sites. But I’ve focused on PIM for about 8 years. Throughout my career, I have worked as a designer, front-end developer, back-end developer, project manager, business analyst, solutions architect, data architect, and manager. I most enjoy my current role, working primarily on inriver projects. I support several clients who have challenging requirements, which forces me to think outside the box a bit. Inriver is such a great platform for customization when needed to meet unique needs. I really enjoy working on it.
Familywise, I have two children, my son is 17 and my daughter is 12. I enjoy spending time with them doing things that they love. My son and I have much in common, we even got our 2nd Degree Black Belts on the same day a few years ago. I often learn new things about my children as they grow, and new things about myself as well. I have learned to enjoy new activities because they enjoy them. I am excited to see what the future holds for each of them.
2. How long have you been working with inriver PIM?
I was certified as a business consultant in 2016, so 7 years and counting.
3. In your opinion, what are the 3 best things about inriver PIM?
- I love that the model is designed from the ground up to be configured as needed for each client. There are some basic rules, but I love that it doesn’t force us into a mold.
- I love the flexibility which allows us to solve complex requirements typically in more than one way. This allows us to work out the best user experience, or best performance, often at the same time and always with the client’s needs at the forefront of the decision.
- I enjoy the extensibility offered and that the inriver Labs Team exists to put out interesting new solutions which can be used and built upon.
4. If someone has a question about inriver PIM, what topics do you prefer to answer?
I like to talk about the Elastic Data Model and the best practices related to it. We have some unique solutions which work well. In general, I am happy to answer any questions about inriver and I typically have use cases to reference.
5. What advice would you give to someone who is starting to work with inriver PIM?
Reach out to the inriver community. We are active and helpful, and reaching out can save you a lot of time and effort. Also, please do NOT use Specifications. There are other solutions that work well, namely Fieldsets or additional Custom Entities. Specifications have too many downsides and not enough upsides.
