Accelerator for Retail

(3 reviews)


Market and technology trends have created a digital transformation imperative in retail. Accelerator for Retail includes pre-built APIs and a prescriptive architecture to help IT teams jumpstart the development of common retail applications and provides a foundation for 3x faster project delivery.

Key Components

  • Support for core business processes โ€“ Retail processes like customer onboarding, product availability, and fulfillment require real-time integration across eCommerce, CRMs, and other core systems of record.
  • Architecture best practice โ€“ Accelerator for Retail provides a proposed architecture โ€“ one drawn from working with industry leaders โ€“ that promotes asset self-service and reuse.
  • Pre-built API designs and implementations โ€“ With omnichannel driving todayโ€™s retail, MuleSoft has built a set of omnichannel specific APIs that build on GS1 standards and integrate on the top of retail process and system APIs.

API-Led Microservices Architecture for Retail

In addition to providing pre-built APIs, Accelerator for Retail includes a model for API-led connectivity in retail that promotes asset reuse and self-service. In the above architecture, weโ€™ve abstracted data from complex retail systems like Hybris, Salesforce and Partner systems that use EDI messages into a canonical model that is represented via a set of REST APIs. Then, we built experience APIs that provide better experiences for both customers and API consumers.

System Layer

System APIs abstract away the complexity of core retail systems of record from the end user, while providing downstream insulation from any interface changes or rationalization of those systems.

Assets Included:

Process Layer

Process APIs decouple business processes that interact with and shape data from the source systems where the data originated. For example, the โ€œPayment Process APIโ€ contains logic that is common across multiple entities, which can be called by product, geography, or channel-specific parent services.

Assets Included:

Experience Layer

Experience APIs are the means by which data can be reconfigured so that it is most easily consumed by its intended audience, all from a common data source, rather than setting up separate point-to-point integrations.
