Power catalog and inventory management

Deliver a responsive and reliable catalog and inventory solution

Businesses with large and dynamically changing portfolios require an agile and flexible data infrastructure that allows them to deliver relevant product content and a real-time view of inventory throughout the customer experience to drive every browse closer to a buy. The Couchbase Data Platform combines product and inventory information in real time, gives content authors the flexibility to make changes on-demand, and delivers millions of requests per second at low latency - all in pursuit of a superior customer experience.

Challenge:

Database sprawl

 

A multitude of information systems supporting evolving commerce operations, oftentimes compounded by the needs of different business units, acquisitions, and/or partners, have led to an explosion of databases housing product content and real-time available-to-promise (ATP) inventory information.

With Couchbase:

Manage product data with one platform

 

Eliminate database sprawl with one single platform that spans web, mobile, and IoT applications. The Couchbase Data Platform is the single source of truth for managing and delivering your product and inventory data - one platform where data is available to any line of business within your organization and every consumer outside.

Challenge:
Product Complexity
 

While dynamic organizations frequently introduce new products, update product content, and vary product presentations in their catalogs, backend technologies struggle to provide the agility and flexibility needed to store and manage this changing data.

With Couchbase:
Reduce time to market for new products or customer journeys

 

Couchbase’s flexible schema supports fast-changing images, SKUs, UUIDs, inventory, attributes, features, and product hierarchies, allowing you to get new products to market faster and into your customers’ hands.


 

Challenge:
Data Availability
 

Nothing hurts your users' experiences worse than an unavailable or slow product catalog. If they can't browse, how are they expected to buy? And once they do decide to purchase something, the selection and ordering process is just as critical. The last thing you want is the inability to scale to meet your peak demand.




With Couchbase:
Deliver always-available product and inventory data


Couchbase provides linear scale, built-in high-availability, and geographic replication to ensure your product, cart, and customer data is always available. Combined with a microservices architecture, each component of a larger application continues to do what it does best, regardless of failures or load elsewhere. Couchbase powers some of the highest demanding catalog applications across retail, streaming media, and travel.
