Instant access to data, improved results

With immediate access to information across the company—including every kiosk, store, and reseller—retail companies can:

  • Unify website purchases with in-store purchases. Being able to view accurate sales data from all of your outlets allows you to update your website  with more online buying options and rewards programs.
  • Enter smaller markets effectively. Reduced IT costs associated with open source software free you to open smaller stores and expand into low-volume territories while still protecting their margins.
  • Better manage your inventory. By seeing data in real time, companies can better manage supplies, pricing, and offerings. Understanding the purchasing patterns in your markets allows you to create targeted marketing campaigns that have a bigger impact.

Red Hat integration solutions unify your data and applications and give you the information you need to respond in real time to the changing demands of your retail business.

ISSUES & CHALLENGES

Unreliable, slow data delivery

Batch delivery is the status quo for retail companies. But with each manual data transfer, you run the risk of introducing errors, losing data, or experiencing delays.

Red Hat JBoss A-MQ gives you access to your data instantly. So you can make informed choices that directly impact your business.

Prohibitive costs

Traditional software vendors require companies to buy and deploy an integration stack at every location, which comes with a huge price tag.

Red Hat open source messaging tools can be deployed at thousands of outlets at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.

IT requirements

A large stack requires significant hardware and IT staffing to manage it. This is not an option for retail stores that may only have access to a shared PC or a mobile device.

Red Hat application and data integration solutions leave a small footprint and do not require extra staff to manage.
