Media Markt commitment Softeng and Microsoft Azure
Media Markt, a prestigious retail chain for household appliances, computer hardware and other consumer electronics, has chosen Azure to host all of its online business, opting for Softeng as its partner specializing in Microsoft cloud services.
Media Markt’s website – which is based on LogiCommerce, a piece of e-commerce software made by Trilogi – was hosted by a physical data centre, thus limiting capacity and availability, and preventing the retailer from meeting its requirements. Media Markt received the bulk of its visits from customers at the end of the day, and so the lack of flexibility inherent to a conventional data centre made it preferable to switch to Azure, thus obtaining the scalability and availability needed for its business. It also gained greater security and reliability as well as the potential to rapidly scale up to meet the demands of its successful campaigns.
Eduard Martínez, Media Markt’s CIO, said: “Following consultation with Trilogi, Media Markt decided upon Softeng to deliver this project not only for its proven track record with Azure IaaS, but also for being a software engineering company able to provide us with the best possible solution: a PaaS environment. The project was executed to absolute perfection and within the time frame and budget set, thus reaffirming that this was a sound decision.”
At Softeng we are very grateful for the trust placed in us and are proud to have successfully delivered the project within the time frame given.
