The ignite Platform
The 5 trillion dollar and growing retail industry is supported by APIs, Service, and Events. Frameworks that Push, Pull, Secure, and Transform internal and external Data-Streams into value. This industry is focused on empowering and reducing complexity in B2B, B2C, Distribution, Customer Experience, and Innovation. That starts with the Data, APIs, Services, Events, and Models that provide a backbone to the Retail Market.
The Global Retail industry is challenged with providing accessibility and efficiency to its ecosystem of Material, Branding, and Distribution channels while constantly seeking to improve the Loyalty and Experience for its Customers. There are several layers of complexity that must be overcome by the Product, Development, and Leadership Teams of a Retail organization to be considered a “Household Name”.
How the ignite Platform
Provide accessibility to your ecosystem while improving customer experience.
Having good Partners, External Developers, and Acquisitions is rooted in the access to your Brand. For Partner Channels, Developers, and Acquisitions, we provide the resources, information, and artifacts to reduce the time to establish a fruitful relationship.
This is done by taking a Holistic approach to the Catalog of APIs, Services, and Events. Placing all Rich Technical Detail (Methods, Mappings, Policies), Lineages, Bundles, Deployable Artifacts and much more into a single pane-of-glass – where it is easy for Internal and External Teams to Discover and share Designs, Specifications, and Models that are captured and modular, so that they can be used to generate new Services and Bundles without redundant efforts.
Global Business Units and IT rely on ignite to provide Business Analyst, Developers, Product Owner, and Leadership the artifacts and insights into how services are designed, where Product Teams are innovating, and ensuring that the APIs, Services, and Events across the globe are adhering to standards for publishing and security.
Ignite targets fractures in enterprise services with a Holistic view across organization BUs with baked-in Governance and Versioning that reduce the logistic efforts required to support large and widespread enterprises in Retail.
Retail Brands rely on APIs, Services, and Events to define and improve Customer Experiences. Whether it's Online or In-store Purchasing, Marketing, or Customer Service, improving how Retail interfaces with customers is backed by Services and data.
Ignite unlocks retail service and allows Developers and Product Teams to discover their current offerings, and be flexible and fast in defining new ones.
The capability to grow and change with customer expectations requires organizations to be prepared for shifts in how and where their services will be deployed. Abstracting Services and focusing on value are key capabilities that ignite uses to help Retail remain adaptable and future proofed.
Innovation in Retail is driven by the many hands that work to build brands by offering value and experiences that lock-in loyal customers and partners. Improving how Business Units build these brands is a driving force for ignite.
Leadership, Business Analyst, Product Owners, and Developers are offered a single source for innovation. Layering in rich technical functionality with checks/balances promotes collaboration and feedback through the many levels of an Enterprise. Opening the door for more members of the org to act and be a part of the Design, Build, and Deployment processes of new and exciting offerings empowers the Retail industry. That is innovation powered by ignite.
