Use cases for Retail

See why EventStoreDB is a great database for retail operations and POS products


Event Sourcing is excellent for retail operations: using an immutable log of data, a single source of truth makes auditing a much more streamlined process. This is not the only thing an Event Store can do for the retail industry.

  • Real-time data analytics
  • Multiple systems and data sources
  • Omni-channel retail
  • Deep personalization through event-sourced analytics data
  • Single source of truth supplies both online and in-store
  • Scalability: handle lots of data
  • High availability running as a cluster

“Using Event Sourcing is where the real win comes into play, because it provided us the design patterns we needed. Individually, and across separate domains, it helps us answer questions like what happened, when it happened, and in which order it happened.”

Large retailers and ePOS/e-commerce solution providers need systems that allow analysis of huge amounts of data to better understand customers, allowing them to provide personalized shopping experiences and improve their purchasing and operational decisions. They also have to deal with multiple systems and data sources, and increasingly have the requirement to analyze data in near real-time.

Event Store's core database allows our retail customers to store critical data in streams of immutable events, and react in near real-time through projections. It also allows them to build systems with great performance and high availability.
