The next generation user experience should move to customer engagement zones along their preferred channels with desired action to outcome approaches. With scores of information ranging from inventory to inquiry, weather to warehouse alerts, product to promotion info at disposal, enterprise digitization can create value at every customer touch point. Attendees witnessed the manifestation of TCS’ Thought Leadership in the Game of Retail.

  • Manifestation of TCS’ Thought Leadership in the Game of Retail
  • Customer Insightsby Naveen Krishna, VP-Online & Mobile Tech., Home Depot
  • Customer Insights by Aashish Chandra,Divisional VP, Application Modernization, Sears
  • With some new tools such as Storm, Cassandra and Mongo we can do truly real-time analysis. Those tools are starting to change the “batch mentality” in traditional companies from overnight processing to real-time processing.Allows you to ask questions and get answers that were impossible before - This is where the value from data can be derived, by using these tools to ask the previously impossible questions.Latency is the time from when the data is created and the time you can use it. With traditional ETL techniques it can take hours or even days between the time the data is created and the time you can use it. With modern big data tools we can bring latency to minutes and seconds, and transform the way you think about ETL.
  • Developer for Hadoop, runs efficiently, flexible spreadsheet interface with dashboards.

  • 13. Legacy Rides the Elephant Aashish Chandra Divisional VP, Sears Holdings GM / Head, Legacy Modernization, MetaScale
  • 14. 18 Legacy Rides The Elephant Hadoop has changed the enterprise big data game. Are you languishing in the past or adopting outdated trends?
  • 15. 19 The Classic Enterprise Challenge The Challenge Growing Data Volumes Shortened Processing Windows Escalating Costs Hitting Scalability Ceilings Demanding Business Rqts ETL Complexity Latency in Data Tight IT Budgets Constant pressure to lower costs, deliver faster, migrate to real time and answer more diff questions for business.. • Copy & Use  Source once and Re-use • Linear  Parallel Processing • Proprietary  Open Source • Capital  Cloud Expense • Batch  Real time • Operating Costs  Down

Will provide a lower price for performance Expensive Inefficient Cheaper price for performance Why Hadoop?
  • 22. 26 What Hadoop is Not? Understanding Hadoop’s limitations will help you identify the right use cases: •Hadoop is not a high-speed SQL database •Hadoop is not a particularly simple technology •Hadoop is not easy to connect to legacy systems. You can do it, but the complexity needs to be considered. •Hadoop is not a replacement for traditional data warehouses. It is an adjunctive product to data warehouses. •Normal DBAs will need to learn new skills before they can adopt Hadoop tools. •The architecture around the data - the way you store data, the way you de- normalize data, the way you ingest data, the way you extract data - is different in Hadoop. •Linux and Java skills are critical for making a Hadoop environment a reality.
  • 23. 27 A super-powerful environment that can transform your understanding of data: • Store vast amounts of data. • Run queries on huge data sets. • Transform traditional ETL • Archive data on Hadoop and still analyze it • Ingest data at incredible speeds and analyze it and report on it in near real-time • Hadoop massively reduces the latency of data • Hadoop allows you to ask questions that were previously impossible to answer Capabilities of Hadoop
  • 24. Big Data The Sears Holdings Journey
  • 25. 29 Where did we start? • Issues with meeting production schedules • Multiple copies of data, no single version of truth • ETL complexity, cost of software and cost to manage • Time taken to setup ETL data sources for projects • Latency in data, up to weeks in some cases • Enterprise Data Warehouses unable to handle load • Mainframe workload over consuming capacity • IT Budgets not growing BUT data volumes escalating
  • 26. 30 The Sears Holdings Approach Implement a Hadoop- centric reference architecture Move enterprise batch processing to Hadoop Make Hadoop the single point of truth Massively reduce ETL by transforming within Hadoop Move results and aggregates back to legacy systems for consumption Retain, within Hadoop, source files at the finest granularity for re-use 1 2 3 4 5 6 Key to our Approach: 1) allowing users to continue to use familiar consumption interfaces 2) providing inherent HA 3) enabling businesses to unlock previously unusable data
  • 27. 31 The Journey In 3 years, we are in a much different place.. •From Legacy (>1000 lines) to Ruby / MapReduce (400 lines) • COBOL is cryptic, difficult to support, difficult to train  PiG is simple, short and easy to maintain •We tried HIVE (~400 lines, SQL-like abstraction) • Easy to Use, easy to experiment and test with • Poor performance, difficult to implement business logic •We evolved to PiG with Java UDF Extensions • Compressed, very efficient, easy to code / read (~200 lines) • Demonstrated success in transforming mainframe developers to PiG developers in under 2 weeks •As we progressed, our business partners requested more and more data from the cluster –which required developer time • We are now using Datameer as a business-user reporting and query front- end to the cluster
  • 28. 32 Re-Think.. • The way you capture data • The way you store data • The structure of your data • The way you analyze data • The costs of data storage • The size of your data • What you can analyze • The speed of analysis • The skills of your team

  • 32. 36 Enterprise Data Hub & ETL Replacement Experience evolved to move into ETL Replacement and architecting Enterprise Data Hub • A major system effort in our Marketing department was heavily reliant on traditional ETL • As data volumes increased the system began to have performance issues as the ETL platform degraded • Re-work CPU-intensive portions in Hadoop • Now run those workloads 20-50 times faster in Hadoop • Run-times do not grow as data volumes grow • Enterprise Data Hub • Source Data once, Re-use multiple times • ETL gives way to ELTTTTTT
  • 33. 37 The Sears Holdings Architecture
  • 34. 38 Current Focus • ETL Complexity is no longer needed – Data Hub • Source Once, Re-Use many times • ETL changes to ELTTTTTTTTT • Data Latency is the thing of the past • Analysis is routinely possible within minutes of data creation • Long Running Workload • Can be eliminated and executed at any time • Run times are a fraction of the original clock time • Batch Processing on Mainframes or other conventional Batch • Run 10, 50, even 100 times Faster • Intelligent Archive • Put your archives/ large data on Hadoop and make it intelligent • Archive with the ability to run analytics or join it with other data • Modernize Legacy • Mainframe MIPS Reductions has very attractive ROI • Move Data Warehouse workload – Reduce Cost – Go Faster
  • 35. 39 Simple & Maintainable Complexity creates fog; Simplicity clears it.
  • 36. 40 Faster & Resilient Data Analytics driving the speed of business.. Secured and Resilient..
  • 37. 41 Summary of Benefits • Readily available resources & commodity skills • Access to latest technologies • IT Operational Efficiencies • Moved 7000 lines of COBOL code to under 150 lines in PiG • Ancient systems no longer bottleneck for business • Faster time to Market • Mission critical “Item Master” application in COBOL/JCL being converted by our tool in Java (JOBOL) • Modernized COBOL, JCL, DB2, VSAM, IMS & so on • Reduced batch processing in COBOL/JCL from over 6 hrs to less than 10 min in PiG Latin on Hadoop • Simpler, and easily maintainable code • Massively Parallel Processing • Significant reduction in ISV costs & mainframe software licenses fees • Open Source platform • Saved ~ $2MM annually within 13 weeks by MIPS Optimization efforts • Reduced 1500+ MIPS by moving batch processing to Hadoop Cost Savings Transform I.T. Skills & Resources Business Agility
  • 38. 42 The Learning • Big Data is here and ready – Avoid the hype • An Enterprise Data Architecture model is essential • Hadoop can revolutionize Enterprise workload • Can reduce strain on legacy platforms • Can reduce cost • Can bring new business opportunities • The Solution must be an Eco-system • Must be part of an overall enterprise data strategy • Not to be underestimated
