"The FUJITSU PRIMERGY server has become essential to our E-go platform and helps it to continuously break the revenue record thanks to its outstanding stability."
Yilun, Zhang, Manager, IT Department, Suning Commerce
In 1990, Suning Commerce was established in Nanjing, China and is now the country’s largest privately owned commercial enterprise and in the top three privately-run enterprises. Suning Commerce ranks as the largest commercial retail enterprise in China with a brand value of 95.686 billion yuan. Suning is also a top tier enterprise for global home appliance chains with 180,000 employees and an annual sales revenue of 230 billion yuan.
‘Suning E-go’ is the organization’s e-commerce platform, responsible for all online and offline business, and was upgraded in 2010. This upgrade was necessary to accommodate product range expansion, from predominantly home appliances, to include general merchandise, books, and other products (totaling 15,000,000) to become one of China’s top three B2C companies. In the future Suning aims to increase sales revenue to 300 billion yuan by 2020 and to be the leading B2C brand in China.
China’s rapidly growing online shopping industry is expected to lead the nation’s economy in the next few years and is attracting interest from a variety of new industries, but in particular from many traditional retail companies. Now that the Suning E-go platform has ranked as the top e-commerce website, the company’s focus is firmly on online-business and further development of the e-commerce market. IT solutions are a key factor in its business growth, and technical resources and product/platform capability are essential for the e-commerce business to operate efficiently.
