The Opportunity

KSB Technologies LTD had the unique opportunity to partner with Pets at Home to enhance their product import process through a series of Proof of Concept (POC) implementations. Our role was to demonstrate the viability and functionality of proposed solutions, laying the groundwork for their development team to refine the architecture and fully integrate the systems.

The centerpiece of the project was the development of a refined product import process. This involved transforming a JSON file containing base and variant product data into custom objects, complete with relevant information and financial prices. These custom objects were then fed into various RESTful services to make the data accessible to the front-end systems.

This process forms a critical part of Pets at Home’s business operations, and our task was to ensure that it is both performant and robust, capable of handling the scale and complexity of the data in a reliable, efficient manner. In delivering this solution, we leveraged a robust tech stack, including:

Key Features
Azure Functions
For executing serverless, event-driven functions.
Azure Blob File Triggers
Used for automatically executing processes in response to changes in blob data.
Azure Cosmos DB
Utilized as a globally-distributed database service for managing data at scale.
Azure Cognitive Search
Employed to make the vast product data easily searchable and accessible.
Service Bus
Deployed for reliable message delivery between applications and services.
Microservices Architecture
To ensure system flexibility, scalability, and independent deployment and development of services.
Swagger OpenAPI
Implemented for clear, standardized documentation of API design.

By ensuring the process’s performance and robustness, our solution became an integral part of Pets at Home’s business operations, handling complex data at scale efficiently. Leveraging a robust tech stack, our solution empowered Pets at Home to streamline their import process, enhancing operational efficiency and driving business growth.
