Decathlon selects Aiven to accelerate its transition to the cloud

Decathlon Group chooses Aiven to turn its open source data management technologies into a highly resilient platform configured for DevOps.

Aiven is partnering with Decathlon, a major sporting goods retailer with an ADN firmly focused on service and technology innovation. Aiven will provide Decathlon with worldwide Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) support for its transition to microservices.

"Standing out in an increasingly competitive retail sector requires developing an IT environment based on cutting edge cloud native technology and highly automated processes. At Decathlon, service and technology innovation is rooted in our daily activities. It's why we form alliances with strong, multicloud partners like Aiven, providing DBaaS as the technological and operational linchpin of our Cloud Platform Engineering global strategy," stated Jérôme Dubreuil, Decathlon Chief Digital Officer.

Decathlon will benefit from Aiven's cloud and services management expertise to turn open source data technologies such as Kafka, PostgreSQL, MySQL, OpenSearch, InfluxDB and Redis into easily consumable, highly available and scalable data solutions.

“Aiven’s solution offers us a unique stack for deploying our database solutions for all cloud providers. This type of collaboration allows us to rely on Aiven’s expertise for some of our applications (especially for databases). We can then focus on the parts of the solutions that differentiate more from the UX of our customers. This work is carried out by our multidisciplinary Decathlon teams - architecture, security, performance, integration - and our developers” , said Pierre Hilbert, Database Product Owner at Decathlon.

With the rapid growth of DBaaS, Aiven and Decathlon will continue to work together and plan the transformation of data management services.

"We are thrilled to support Decathlon in such an important transformation and are fully aware of the level of quality required to manage Decathlon applications," stated Oskari Saarenmaa, Aiven CEO and Co-founder.

"While the open source database market caught up to the business services market for the first time in 2021, Aiven is more committed than ever to providing reliable and innovative data services designed to make developers' lives easier and support our customers' business."
