In order to provide a better experience to their customers and support their digital strategy, Kmart needed to migrate to a platform that would deliver greater flexibility, agility, and scalability. The new platform also needed to be easy to work with, particularly when it came to integration with a hybrid microservices architecture.
As an iconic Australian retailer recognized for its service and convenience, Kmart’s combination of headless and microservices will provide it with a significant competitive advantage in the local retail market.
