Kathmandu is an outdoor apparel and equipment retailer across Australia, New Zealand and the UK. The company operates around 140 stores and have a growing online channel.
To support their goal of continuing growth, they needed a technology platform that would allow them to be more scalable and needed to provide global support for new markets to provide highly available systems that could be replicated across Australia and New Zealand to de-risk the business.
Kathmandu often has a lot of projects that happen all at once, so the cloud model has allowed them the ability to spin up service quickly, without a 6-8 week lead time waiting on hardware.
Testing is an example of something they can do much better in the cloud now, with added benefits and reduced risk.
