River Island move to AWS
As part of River Island's digital transformation TCPL were asked to re-platform their solution to enable migration to the cloud.
To re-platform and move into a cloud environment at the same time is a big undertaking for any retailer. However, by leaning on TCPL’s technical expertise River Island were able to achieve this in the short timescale given – something very few of their competitors have managed to accomplish.
Based on a TCPL ground up re-write of every critical digital component - from developing a new promotion computational engine that was faster and more feature packed compared to their previous platform's through to automated deployments.
Steve Hayes TCPL CTO who led the technology team on the project said "The scale of the enterprise was breathtaking and the RI AWS delivery should be used as an industry case study on how to get it right first time, no blips!".
