CSN Stores, the third largest online retailer of home goods in the U.S., has selected IBM’s Netezza® TwinFin® appliance to quickly mine and analyze terabytes of business data flowing through the company every day.
The new appliance will power CSN’s business analytics platform to monitor trends related to profitability, customer satisfaction, customer retention, order fulfillment and supply chain. The company will use the data to drive organic growth initiatives and discover new ways to better serve their customers.
With a network of over 250 award-winning online retail stores including, AllModern.com, Luggage.com, Cookware.com, BedroomFurniture.com and Strollers.com, CSN sells over two million products – everything from toys, tools, and toasters to furniture, fitness gear, and flooring – offering unparalleled selection, service and savings to more than seven million visitors each month from the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Germany.
Because CSN Stores is on an aggressive growth plan, the company required a solution that provides scalability well into the future. With the IBM Netezza appliance, CSN is able to go beyond the capabilities of its legacy data warehouse and answer questions in seconds or minutes that previously took hours or days.
