By migrating the company’s legacy environment to Bare Metal Solution for Oracle, Pythian helped this ecommerce retailer handle spikes in consumer demand and leverage Google Cloud’s advanced capabilities such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Google Cloud Platform
This ecommerce retailer, founded in 2003, sells eyewear online to fill a gap in the market for more affordable, accessible prescription glasses. The company became one of the first online-only shops for affordable eyewear by cutting out the middleman and going directly to consumers. What started as a small, homegrown business in California has morphed into an e-commerce success story with more than 50 million frames sold to customers all over the world.
The ecommerce retailer has a robust digital marketing strategy and numerous campaigns that generate sales, with an emphasis on the customer’s mobile experience. The company’s e-commerce store was based on the Oracle Commerce (ATG) platform with Oracle Database 19c running in Rackspace. Their team was looking to move away from legacy systems and processes to leverage technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence—and ultimately enable more innovation in a retail market that has been quickly democratizing.
