Parse

Pronunciation

Definition

The process of analyzing data strings to identify and separate out different parts of the string that represent different concepts about the products.

Parsing product data is an important process in building schema as often times legacy attributes will capture long strings of product information that should exist in individual attributes. Parsing this data can also lead to improved hierarchy building and classification.
