In this white paper, IT professionals working in retail are introduced to the methodology behind real-time data strategy and implementation based on event-driven architecture (EDA), and the 6 steps necessary to architect a scalable, real-time, event-based ecosystem for retailers expanding their global, multichannel footprint.
By reconfiguring an IT infrastructure based on the occurrence of ‘events’, retail IT professionals can replace polling and batch-based data movement with real-time data flow across the entire supply chain, inventory, merchandising, web and online applications, and point of sale systems.
The benefits of doing so include a streamlining of retail operations, smarter operations-based decisions based on time-sensitive data, and a hyper-personalized omnichannel experience for your customers.
In this paper, Solace’s Chief Technology Solutions Officer, Sumeet Puri, explains the importance and business value of shifting to a real-time, event-driven infrastructure, and lays out a proven 6-step process that can help retailers implement real-time data streaming and benefit from EDA across their growing operations:
- Developing Culture, Awareness, and Intent
- Identifying Data “Event” Candidates for a Real-Time Project
- Build Your Eventing Foundation
- Pick a Pilot Application
- Decompose Apps and Processes into Event-Driven Microservices
- Get a Quick Win, Then Rinse and Repeat!
