Wiggle gears up global online push with Ogone’s international payment offering

Ogone helps UK bike and sportswear retailer Wiggle achieve rate of 60% international shoppers

London, 26th March 2014: Ogone, an Ingenico Company, and leading international Payment Service Provider are proud to announce notable successes to date with sporting goods retailer Wiggle.

Offering a range of hi-tech sporting goods, Wiggle's name as a quality sports retailer is now prevalent in markets such as The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Austria, thanks to Ogone's bespoke Collect solution.

Before Ogone, Wiggle experienced rapid success across European territories, but was becoming increasingly aware of the growing number of different global payment methods available. It recognised the need to localise its approach, to gain an understanding of how customers wanted to pay as well as how they could navigate around the site.

Considering its initial success via Ogone Collect in The Netherlands in 2010, Wiggle chose to further its reach with the solution in 2012 to boost sales in Germany, Belgium and Austria. Ogone's bespoke online payment solution for Wiggle includes customised individual country pages displaying popular payment options specific to that country, as well as local languages and currencies - to provide a seamless, familiar and therefore trustworthy payment experience from start to finish.

Justin Lodge, European Territory Manager at Wiggle said "The flexible, tailored approach that Ogone offer has resulted in the integration of 11 different sites in 10 languages to date, which has really helped establish Wiggle as a truly international brand. At present, 60% of our new customers are outside of the UK, proving our review and further investment in the Ogone Collect solution a crucial move. The different regional payment options that Ogone offer maximise our global customer base, and allow us to understand different payment cultures and their trends."

Julian Wallis, Head of Sales UK & Ireland at Ogone said "We are pleased to continue a successful partnership with Wiggle, a retailer with growing international reach and potential. This fruitful collaboration demonstrates the need, and success, of a tailored payments strategy, tapping into key markets with informed decisions and expertise."

Another attractive element of the Ogone approach is the "in-app" mobile payment capability that is enabled via provision of their software developer kit. This considerably enhances the customer experience and reduces purchase abandonment as there is no need to open a separate browser to make the payment.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
