A ton of events are happening every hour in each REWE International AG store. Event data contains valuable insights. Making this data available in an easily accessible, realtime fashion, opens up new dimensions in respect to data analytics and integration.
SQUER does not only bring the technical but also the organizational knowledge to help us transforming into a Product Organization. It is the combination of expertise and mindset SQUER brings, that makes our collaboration a success.”Sebastian PleschkoHead of Digital, REWE International
In order to reach the goal of analysing event data and deriving valuable insights from said data, we helped REWE International AG to build an event streaming solution using Apache Kafka. By building this solution, we put a strong focus on automation in respect to the infrastructure as well as concerning the creation of certain event types (topics). Automation, especially regarding the infrastructure, allowed us to architect a system that is not just particularly responsive and resilient but also actually scalable.
To set up real-time data integration on this scale, the autoscaling of the underlying infrastructure as well as the solution itself definitely was one of our biggest achievements. In addition to that, the automatic creation of topics helps the development team to be able to initiate the processing of new events in a very quick manner. We are proud that we got the chance to architect this part of the software ecosystem together with REWE International AG, from the sketching-process to the production.
We proudly present our own software development conference.
