About this talk

- Jason Vogel, the IT Manager at AutoZone, joins Lauren to talk about how he is a major influence on how AutoZone is using data to make business decisions. It’s not where you start, but where you finish. It’s important to start any venture small and grow from there.You need to adapt to your surroundings. - With everything that is on in the world with COVID, companies like AutoZone needed to change the way they attracted customers to go to their stores and that is part of what Jason and his team need to figure out on a daily basis. Having a plan is one of the most important things when it comes to working with a major company. It’s easy to say you can’t do something, but if you head into every job or every project with a plan and a template it will help you be able to handle whatever gets thrown your way. - AutoZone partnering with Talend: US-based AutoZone has over 6,400 retail stores which sell auto parts and products. To continue its aggressive growth strategy, the company wanted to take orders and share accurate product and pricing data to retail locations in a timely manner to better serve its customers. With Talend, AutoZone experienced a 75x improvement in throughput and reduced the time for processing records for the given project from 2,000 records per hour to nearly 5,000 records per minute. This speed provides retail employees the means to instantly locate and provide parts to customers, along with the knowledge of how to install those parts. ​
