Pick n Pay becomes the first sub saharan African retailer to complete an all in migration to Amazon web services. Pick n Pay, a South African retailer, has migrated its entire on-premises information technology (IT) infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Pick n Pay worked with Lemongrass Consulting, an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, for the migration.
By analyzing data in the cloud, Pick n Pay can forecast demand, identify customer patterns and sentiment, and improve the in-store and online shopping experience for customers. With AWS, the retailer can dynamically scale its infrastructure resources in line with business demand and peak retail seasons.
Pick n Pay states that this elasticity will help it scale its online shopping services, which run on AWS, to serve thousands of South African customers during its busiest shopping periods and holidays.
