Picnic Modernizes Data Architecture with Confluent for Streaming Analytics

Picnic is Europe’s fastest-growing online-only supermarket, currently operating in France,the Netherlands, and Germany. The company relies heavily on data-driven decisions to provide the lowest-price guarantee to its customers. Picnic processes more than 300 million unique events per week from customer applications (i.e., shopping applications) and internal systems to power predictive analytics in their data warehouse.

Picnic’s blazing-fast growth, attributable to consumer demand, industry recognition, and a successful series B funding, underpinned the need to seek out a better performing and more reliable data streaming platform, as well as improved streaming analytics capabilities.

That’s when Picnic turned to Confluent.
