“Clothes in the Cloud” – Fashion Leader Moves Away from On-Prem

About our client, an International Retailer

Our long-standing client, an International Retailer (IR), is a global leader in fashion and accessories. Renowned for its iconic brands, IR has evolved into a lifestyle destination for fashion enthusiasts worldwide. 


For the business people –

We’re undertaking a new project for IR – “Order Management System (OMS) Regionalization.” Currently, IR’s order management system is centralized, on-premises, in one location. IR wants to move its OMS to various regions in the cloud for, in part, the following reasons: 

  • Minimize service disruptions: Unlike an outage in a centralized system, an outage in one region will not affect other regions 
  • Enhance user experience: Regional cloud computing reduces latency in that area, giving faster processing and improving efficiency for users 
  • Comply with regulations: Many jurisdictions are enacting rules about local transactions being processed in the jurisdiction itself; or local information being only locally stored 
  • Unlock scalability and cost efficiency: The cloud gives more flexibility and cost efficiency for future growth, integrations and applications 

Our integration SMEs are ramping up this project and have created a technical presentation for it (see below).

For the tech people –

Prolifics integration software architects Gurumoorthy Nagarajan and Raveendra Nanjundappa will present the technical ins-and-outs of this new project with “Modernize Your Integrations with IBM Cloud Pak for Integration” at the upcoming IBM TechCon 2024, a TechXchange Virtual Experience 

They’ll discuss adopting Cloud Pak for Integration for scalable, cloud-native API and event-driven integration, transitioning key components like DataPower, API Connect, and ACE. You’ll learn how this transformation results in a robust, cost-efficient cloud ecosystem. 

Their talk is part of TechCon’s track 1, “API Management & Gateways” and is Session 134 on March 21, 1:25 – 2:25 ET. TechCon is IBM’s premier virtual technical event, with six tracks covering the whole spectrum of IBM products.
