BUT: a need for innovative tools to analyze its KPIs

But is a french retailer specializing in home goods, including furniture, large and small appliances, and consumer electronics. They operate more than 300 stores in France. 

Challenges

To better leverage ​ their data , But wanted to have innovative tools to analyze key sales performance indicators with more depth. The organization was facing several challenges:

An information system in need of an overhaul

Their data architecture was complex, with data scattered across several systems. Some pieces of data were hosted by commercial partners operating on their marketplace, which was making quick access to this data complex for But. 

Ops teams acting as bottlenecks

But’s operations teams couldn’t allocate the time necessary to best answer the various business needs emerging from the organization.

Furthermore, they lacked skills in data science and data engineering, which prevented them from addressing all the projects they wanted.

A handcrafted approach

Initiatives launched by data teams were often using a handcrafted approach, which was caused both by difficult access to data and inadequate tools.

But adopted Saagie’s DataOps Platform to address their data use cases and analyze commercial performance.
