SingleStore and Macy's
Macy’s was facing a growing need for live visibility to website activity when they came across the real-time data pipelines solution from SingleStore. Previously the analytics team had focused on batch workflows, but found that a real-time solution was needed to provide an up to the minute, 360 degree view of the business. Specifically for the ecommerce team, they can now see how customers are engaging with the website across different categories such as mens, womens, kids, beauty, or shoes. Merchandising groups can use these real-time views to understand conversion and key metrics in order to optimize the business.
