Jesta I.S., Inc., a leading supplier of enterprise business solutions for retailers, manufacturers, and distributors, announced today that Town Shoes Limited will upgrade their Point of Sale and Merchandising systems with the Jesta I.S. Vision Solutions in its network of close to 200 stores across Canada.
Town Shoes Limited, headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, has experienced significant growth over the years. To sustain their expanding operations as well as support their customers, the company needed to align their head office merchandising applications to their store POS systems, in-store customer experience capabilities, and in-store infrastructure. Following a rigorous evaluation process, Town Shows Limited selected Jesta I.S.’s Vision Merchandising, Vision BI, Vision POS, and Vision Mobile ERP solutions.
Jesta I.S. has been Town Shoes Limited’s ERP software partner since 2000 and has consistently been at the forefront of their IT strategies. Therefore, it was natural for the two parties to extend their relationship into this new growth phase.
“Jesta I.S. is delighted to continue working with Town Shoes Limited and understands that the complexities of the footwear business can only be managed by a partner who can provide one unified platform for the administration of all current and future banners, while facilitating more efficient omnichannel strategies, “ commented Arvind Gupta, Chief Operating Officer of Jesta I.S.
With the upgraded suite of solutions, Town Shoes Limited will be able to modernize their supply chain and deliver the right products to their customer, faster than ever before. New analytics, including POS data, will provide real-time information for store modeling, size profiling and inventory balancing to ensure the right product is in the right store at the right time. Finally, with a state-of-the-art order fulfillment for eCommerce, the client experience will be consistent, seamless, and streamlined both in store and online.
“We have experienced good growth for all our banners so we felt it was imperative for us to ensure our strategic IT infrastructure was aligned to sustain and support our projected business growth. We decided to extend our partnership with Jesta I.S. because they have been a partner that truly understands our business and has been investing in innovative product features that align with our future strategic business and IT goals,” stated BJ Morden, Sr. Director I.T. eCommerce & Customer Service, from Town Shoes Limited.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers.

In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
