Fanatics, a popular sports apparel website and fan gear merchandiser, needed to ingest terabytes of data from multiple historical and streaming sources transactional, e-commerce, and back-office systems to a data lake on Amazon S3. Once ingested, the data would be analyzed to better identify, predict, and fulfil customer needs related to the products Fanatics offers in over 300 online and offline stores.

To accomplish this, Fanatics chose Qlik Replicate, a software solution featuring continuous data capture (CDC) and parallel threading for streaming data in real time from multiple sources into a data lake on Amazon S3. The data can then be consumed in Apache Kafka for real-time analytics. Qlik helps Fanatics avoid the heavy lifting of manually extracting data from disparate sources and enables the organization to see results in real time.
