Dairy Farm International is an Asian retailer operating supermarkets, hypermarkets, multi-format convenience, health and beauty, and home furnishing stores, restaurants, and franchises of global brands. The company implemented SAP Retail for merchandising across 7-Eleven, Giant and Cold Storage stores in Singapore.

Data systems of these retail brand stores were managed by three different applications with their own database structure and multiple code base. Infosys implemented a cloud integration platform to accumulate and transform data for 560+ stores in the required format for different store systems.

Key Challenges

  • Disparate systems across store formats resulted in lack of integrated view
  • Maintaining legacy systems escalated the total cost of operations (TCO)
