Retail Architecture using ARTS

This Live Instructor-Led Training course is currently under development so please click HERE to register your interest.


This program explains retail architecture from a piece of wire to the Internet of Things and everything in between.  Enables individuals to understand the architecture components and how they fit together.

Why take this course

  • It shows how all the puzzle pieces fit together to create a modern agile dynamic environment.
  • For anyone interested in retail technology, it provides an education.
  • For clients new to retail technology, it provides an overview of the components of retail technology to enable them to become quickly adapted to the retail world
  • For retailers who are merging companies, it provides a framework for migrating all the different systems into a homogeneous model so the people at the top can properly manage the company.
  • For retailers who are upgrading systems, it explains all the architectural pieces needed to create an agile dynamic flexible environment.  Typically they only get one of the pieces and not a holistic view.  It introduces them to the options available as one solution isn’t necessarily the best for all situations, for example when to use a monolithic model vs a service oriented architecture model vs a microservices model.
  • For vendors it provides a framework for upgrading/including their systems in the new microservices architectural model.
