Big Data & Analytics
Data and retail! An unlikely match made in heaven?. That’s right, if you #lovedata, there may not be a better place to flex your data-loving muscle than at Walmart. Data today, sales tomorrow. We’re leveraging technology and insights and looking at how customers shop today to redefine commerce in the future.
We #lovedata in a big way. We were into #bigdata before the rest and we’re still leading the way. The lab is open. Walmart #datascientists are cooking up a global data fabric that transforms #bigdata into big insights. It’s no crystal ball, but it’s almost as good. Walmart studies #bigdata to determine what customers need most before they know themselves.
While you’re reading this sentence, we just processed 190 billion rows of data. While reading this one, we’re performing calculations and rendering that data visually. We’ve integrated hundreds of internal and external data objects into our analytics – meaning we can layer in things like weather with product sales status, pricing, inventory and a lot more. A decision that’s made based on big data analysis in the morning can be implemented at stores all over the world the same day
