Switzerland-based footwear retailer Bata has partnered enterprise cloud services provider Datapipe to move its technology infrastructures to the cloud, according to a joint press statement on 12 October 2016.
Datapipe will be helping Bata to manage its cloud deployment and deliver security, speed, cost-efficiencies and scalability required by the Bata in high growth markets. This is specifically for India, China, and Southeast Asia.
Bata's global sourcing infrastructure is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). It is increasingly reliant on cloud infrastructure for its day-to-day operations, including its Point of Sale (PoS) system, warehousing, logistics, and purchase order processes.
Datapipe adopted a two-phased approach to ensure an optimised environment.
The second phase will deploy comprehensive network and instance-based security controls and services, ensuring secure connections to Bata's e-commerce websites for users in the region.
"With Bata's rapid growth in emerging markets, the company needed an information technology (IT) infrastructure that was secure, scalable, and incredibly reliable," said Jason Singh, Head of Marketing for Asia Pacific (APAC), Datapipe. "[Bata can] focus on serving its customers and managing its production facilities, while Datapipe manages its cloud deployments."
