Extenda Retail collaborates with Google Cloud to deliver innovative retail services

Extenda Retail announces a collaboration with Google Cloud to run its next generation of cloud-native retail services on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With Google’s complete catalogue of modular cloud services covering compute, storage, analytics, machine learning & AI, Extenda Retail can continue developing a comprehensive set of retail services in a fast and efficient manner.

“This collaboration with Google Cloud will allow us to move quickly in delivering our services to market”, says Extenda Retail Director of Technology, Shayne Clausson. “Google’s success running services like Search, YouTube, and Gmail at ultra-high scale is proof-positive that the platform will provide the performance demanded by our retail services.”

“Our belief is that if we try and reinvent a wheel that took us 10-15 years to build, and was designed to solve fundamental retail problems for global retailers, it will be a transformation that simply takes too long. So instead, we have decided to focus on bringing smaller, incremental, value-adding components to market faster – that can be easily integrated with the more established, existing technologies. This focus will still enable us to make supply chains less rigid, and furthermore, it will remove friction from the shopping experience”.
