DATA ARCHITECTURE AND PLATFORM FOR AN E-TAILER
THE CHALLENGEOur client, a mid-sized e-commerce retailer with 10 years history, had a legacy technology infrastructure that was not geared for advanced analytics. They approached Tatras to help them transform their technology platform, and develop an analytics strategy plan across their data sets and business issues.
Upon understanding the client’s datasets and business requirements, Tatras proposed a database architecture capable of handling myriad analytics requirements.
