Supervalu replaces legacy systems

By Retail Technology | Wednesday June 14 2017

US grocery wholesaler and retailer Supervalu is replacing its mainframe technology infrastructure

It has formed a strategic partnership with Sungard AS for the project. 

Together, the two companies will replace Supervalu’s legacy mainframe IT environment under a transformation programme aimed at reducing costs, improving flexibility, and supporting Supervalu’s strengths as a service provider to its network of more than 2,000 grocery stores. 

"We plan to strengthen operations across our enterprise and add shareholder value by transforming our approach to technology," said Chad Mead, CTO at Supervalu. "Technology has become an essential factor in competing in this market, and our planning with Sungard AS suggests that we can build a more flexible and responsive mainframe infrastructure that drives growth. We were impressed by the track-record, creativity, and commitment Sungard AS demonstrated during our discussions."

Supervalu’s new mainframe technology platform will offer cloud, back-up, and other solutions and services to improve operations across the independent retailers it supports. This transition is a critical step in the company's plans to use technology smartly in order to compete in a demanding and competitive grocery environment.
