Barneys New York Continues Digital Advancements with Launch of Personalized Internal Search Capabilities on Barneys.com

Barneys New York, the luxury specialty retailer, announces today a
relaunched search function for Barneys.com, developed in collaboration
with Rich Relevance. The more robust product leverages site-wide
customer behavior and merchant intelligence to create a personalized
search experience that goes beyond collaborative filtering. This new
product is part of Barneys New York’s ongoing efforts to personalize
Barneys.com for a customized digital shopping experience.
“Internal search continues to be one of the most important features of
site experience,” said Matthew Woolsey, Executive Vice President,
Digital, Barneys New York. “Now, with the ability to deliver
personalized, targeted product recommendations, we’ve introduced
something new to the digital luxury marketplace that will continue to
improve the customer experience for Barneys.com."
The search function provides intelligent auto-complete and real-time
product recommendations – with continuous optimization to ensure the
display of the most relevant results based on each term. Shoppers who
engage with the auto-complete terms convert at a rate 6 times higher
than average, and those who engage with the product recommendations
convert at a rate 10 times higher than average.
The new capabilities were designed, developed and launched in under 8
weeks using RichRelevance’s powerful personalization platform and
flexible APIs. Moving forward, new functionalities will be introduced,
including recommendations reflecting each individual’s shopping and
buying behavior, as well as relevant editorial content and campaigns.
Leveraging content from Barneys’ luxury editorial site, The Window,
stories will be geo-targeted or directed to customers in real time based
on what they are searching for.
The improved search function is the latest step Barneys New York has
taken in strengthening its digital experience. Beginning in February
2011 with the launch of The Window, the redesign continued with
the implementation of new interactive and social features, shoppable
lookbooks and videos, the launch of the HTML5 mobile site along with
many improved site features and functionality enhancements. A new iPad
app was launched in April, and a redesigned Barneys.com and
BarneysWarehouse.com will be unveiled later this year.
Since the redesign began, Barneys.com has been recognized with several
awards, including Luxury Institute's Best Luxury Retail Site in 2012, a
Webby for Best Digital Campaign in 2013, and an OMMA Award for Best
Retail Website in 2013.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

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 will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
