AUSTIN, Texas – March 17, 2016 – Tacit Knowledge, a Newgistics company, today announced that it has joined the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program. Becoming a Google Cloud Platform technology partner enables the company to bring the benefits of Google’s leading infrastructure to its retail customers, building on a track record of implementing the most complex eCommerce and business systems for leading retailers.

As a Google Cloud Platform Partner with deep expertise in digital commerce, Tacit Knowledge can now help retailers take advantage of the same infrastructure that allows Google to return over 100 billion search results every month (with an average response time of a quarter of a second), serve 6 billion hours of YouTube video per month, and provide storage for 425 million Gmail users.

Digital Commerce Consultancy Becomes Google Cloud Platform Technology Partner, Bolstering its Mission to Bring Silicon Valley Innovation to Retailers around the World.

With this infrastructure powering their sites and applications, retailers instantly gain industry-leading scalability to handle spikes from flash sales or major buying seasons, analytics to run fast, SQL-like queries against multi-terabyte data sets in seconds, and security, to protect their customer’s most sensitive data.

Tacit Knowledge creates exceptional value for retailers through combining best-in-class technologies and services deployed on the Google Cloud Platform. For example, the company is a trusted partner of SAP Hybris and has been recognized for excellence in building and optimizing premier omni-channel commerce websites using the SAP Hybris platform. Tacit Knowledge offers the unique ability to marry the eCommerce maturity of SAP Hybris with the performance and durability of the Google Cloud Platform into an unparalleled solution for merchants.

“We deliver the most complete digital commerce solution combining services and technologies that we’ve vetted and integrated. This empowers our merchant customers to focus on creating outstanding customer experiences from device to doorstep. Leveraging SAP Hybris for digital commerce is a big part of that strategy, and becoming a Google Cloud Platform technology partner is another significant step,” said Todd Everett, CEO for Newgistics. “Our objective is to field a complete digital and physical commerce solution to spare our merchant customers the pains of cobbling one together in an increasingly fragmented space.”

Tacit Knowledge deploys SAP Hybris implementations on Google Compute Engine for new and existing retail clients. This powerful combination of technology enables faster time to market, zero downtime (even during migration), industry-leading reliability to scale during peak periods, and custom infrastructure to fit any company’s needs.
