BUSINESS OUTCOME

Ensure reliability and consistency between previous and incoming ecommerce digital processes, with a secure and reliable Oracle ecommerce platform.

The specialists at Rackspace were flexible, but also very stringent when they needed to be on certain aspects where they had more experience than our internal IT team. And they guided us in the right way.

Steven Hunter, Stage Stores EVP & CIO

Where other leading providers were not as well-suited to deal with merchandising systems or stores systems, Rackspace has done a great job with ecommerce and we want to expand that business with them as we grow.
