In the pipeline

Posted by Philip James, Apr 14, 2008.

We've been very busy for over a month now integrating a veritable ton of data. This is our largest data integration to date and very soon we'll be announcing it formally and a lot of the recent features will begin to fall into place; things like merchant select, for example.

The data is actually up and on our site, so those of you who read this can get a sneak peak at it before the announcement. As you can see from the image below, we have over 400,000 wines in stock worldwide.



And thats finally, truly worldwide - or at least 40+ countries from around the world.

We have, now, over 1 million wines in our database. Of course, that still includes a few duplicates (a few hundred thousand perhaps), but when measured against the wines that we've matched to each other its a small percentage. At this point, by my count we've matched well over 3 million records to one another - every external review, every store selling a particular wine, every record from a winery, each constitutes a separate record, and when you see a wine with 5 of those things on 1 page, that was once 5 records in files fed to us.

Keep your eyes open for the official release this week, and let us know how the new features and the data work out for you.

We're very happy to have a site that's usable to a global wine market. I hope to hear from some more of our overseas users.

Thank you both for the kind words - we're slowly clamboring out from a morass of data, but its exciting to have it live. Hope to hear lots of feedback from people over the next few weeks.

Good visual for what we're dealing with!. As a developer and user, it has been exciting to see continual improvements in the way we handle data and deliver it to the front-end.
