Pioneering with Outsystems in a retail environment
MVP: one jar of peanut butter
“Yeah, it’s turning out a nice little challenge. Our Minimum Viable Product is to process a single jar of peanut butter. That may sound simple, but I was really surprised how complex it turned out to be. Products can have different suppliers, store order units, warehouse units, dimensions, and so on. There are literally hundreds of attributes that need to be correct. Data quality errors in external sources add even more complexity.
Also, this is one of their first projects with OutSystems. I’m an OutSystems developer myself so it feels like home to me but to them, managing things like infrastructure licenses, APIs and automatic deployments in the platform really was "uncharted territory". They’re quite happy with the results though, and we’re pretty proud we got them here.”
So, we’re happy?
“I’d say we are. The MVP should be doable in about three months’ time, saving a lot of manual work with improved data quality and reduced processing time. The end users are excited to work with a new modern application, which does a lot for good vibes in the team. Also, it’s quite fun to learn about what goes on in retail like this.”
