A foundational course on STEP and the business problems STEP helps to solve.


There are no prerequisites for STEP Solution Fundamentals; however, you will benefit from having
experience with the following areas:
 e-commerce solutions
 Product Information Management (PIM)
 Master Data Management (MDM)

 BI technologies

Course Outline:

1 - Explain Stibo Systems core business and the unique value we add
for customers in different vertical markets
Learning Objectives:
 Illustrate Stibo Systems as a company, business, global representation, and value proposition.
 Explain the unique selling points of STEP, the main difference the STEP solution offers compared
to other systems in the market, and examples of business benefits for the customers.
 Give examples of the different verticals / business areas / industry sectors Stibo Systems has most
experience in implementing STEP.
 Describe the advantage of Stibo System’s global representation.
2 - Explain the key components available in STEP to build solutions for
our customers
Learning Objectives:
 Memorize the predominant reasons for configuring user privileges in STEP.
 Outline the basic mechanisms for releasing data for downstream systems.
 Comprehend that STEP can hold content in language-specific layers.
Course Objective 3 - Communicate the differences between STEP workbench and Web UI
Learning Objectives:
 Comprehend that some configurations are performed in STEP Workbench only.
 Summarize the function of the Primary Product Hierarchy, Classification, Product tab, References
tab, and Referenced By tab in STEP Workbench.
 Give examples of basic functionalities / tasks in STEP Workbench.
 Recall that data maintenance can be performed in STEP Workbench and Web UI. 

4 - Use a pre-configured STEP Web UI to capture, maintain and
distribute product/customer data
Learning Objectives:
 Recall that data import can be performed by using an import configuration in Web UI.
 Outline the process when using a data import configuration in the Web UI (locate the import
configuration; select the input file; import data; check for errors; find the imported data in Web UI.
 Know what to add to the import configuration used in Web UI in order to ensure data quality.
 Use an asset loader configuration (i.e. Load Images to Products), to add images to STEP and link
them to products automatically in Web UI.
 Comprehend that new products and assets can be scheduled to be imported into STEP System
using a hot folder in STEP Workbench.
 Recall that data export can be performed by using an export configuration in the STEP Web UI.
 Outline the following process when exporting data using the export functionality in the STEP Web
UI: locate the data to export; select the data to export; export data; check for errors; verify the
exported data is correct.
 Indicate where to go in order to find all the active and non-active data processes in STEP Web UI.
 Demonstrate how types of data are accepted as Attribute Values in STEP Web UI.
 Give examples of STEP language capabilities.
 Exemplify the advantage of easily updating LOV values in different languages when they are
 Comprehend that there are three ways to find Attributes and Attribute Values: navigating through
the products hierarchies, using the type ahead search functionality and the advanced search.
 Give examples of maintenance that can be performed in STEP Web UI.
 Give examples of an efficient way of updating multiple objects in a single operation in the Web UI.
 Indicate the use of a data profile/completeness score configuration widget to guide efficient data
maintenance in Web UI. 

5 - Grasp how data modelling is used in STEP to meet business
Learning Objectives:
 Recall that Object Types Hierarchy Structure defines data inheritance in STEP.
 Summarize how data inheritance works in STEP.
 Recall the usage of Reference Types and Links.
 Comprehend what an Attribute is.
 Articulate the difference between Descriptive Attributes and Specification Attributes.
