When your IT infrastructure is based in the cloud, it is easy for you to expand the sphere of influence of the retail network; it easily expands to other cities and regions, and new sales markets open up.
Flexible business management tools
The widespread adoption of automation, which allows the implementation of cloud-based IT services, simplifies strategic planning, inventory management and marketing campaigns within a large retail network.
IT consolidation allows you to promote products in parallel on online and offline platforms. Clients independently choose the optimal channel for buying: online or offline.
Assessment and Planning
Your transition to the cloud operating model starts with a comprehensive assessment of your infrastructure, applications, and processes. We will work with you to carefully analyze IT estate and your business objectives, and plan your journey to the cloud that is aligned with your most urgent business priorities and organizational capabilities.
Some of your applications may be simply re-hosted on the cloud infrastructure, without any changes to the application code. This strategy may benefit organizations that need to migrate legacy workloads out of their data centers to meet a specific deadline, or just want to get to the cloud quickly in the least complex manner.
While the lift-and-shift approach does not unlock the deeper capabilities, cost efficiency, and value of the cloud, it can be a first step in the cloud transformation journey followed by gradual optimization of the applications and deeper utilization of cloud-native services.
Application Modernization (Re-engineering)
Reengineering involves deeper changes to the application architecture and code, e.g. transforming a monolithic application into a microservices (or serverless) architecture to enable its further evolution over time and/or ease its’ integration with other systems. This approach enables deeper integration with cloud-native capabilities and services and helps maximize flexibility, agility, and scalability.
Systems that take full advantage of the capabilities of the cloud achieve optimal scalability, cost efficiency, and agility (ability to be changed quickly to test ideas and respond to opportunities). Cloud-native solutions are usually built as microservices, either packaged in containers or using serverless architectures, and managed through agile DevOps processes and continuous delivery workflows.
DataArt designs and delivers cloud-native solutions that achieve critical business outcomes for our clients. In the process, we also help upskill their in-house teams by introducing cloud-specific competencies, modern DevOps automation and tooling, and technical best practices.

Increasing Daily Number of Orders by 5x with a Custom Transport Management System
Our client is one of the leaders in the online grocery market, was making 10 000 deliveries daily and aspired to increase that number to 50,000 within the next three years. However, the client’s transport management and route calculation system could not keep up with existing delivery demands and was stifling business growth.
