Case Study: Retail and Consumer Goods

Competition in the outdoor recreation and sporting goods retail sector is cutthroat. Having strong ecommerce capabilities that seamlessly blend digital and physical store experiences are now table-stakes for attracting and retaining customers. Our client recognized its legacy architecture could not scale easily or adapt to support modern digital ecommerce offerings. The retailer turned to Cognizant for help in transitioning to a cloud-native architecture. Drawing on our deep knowledge of the retail industry as well as our standard-setting work in Google Cloud Platform (GCP), we designed and implemented a state-of-the-art hybrid cloud architecture. Our solution teams a cloud-based container platform for front-end applications with an ecommerce platform in the client’s existing physical data center. Our client now has a highly available, resilient and secure hybrid infrastructure supporting robust new ecommerce capabilities. Learn more here!
