Allders is implementing new Java-based infrastructure software to allow its IT department to develop and deploy applications without replacing legacy systems, the department store chain has revealed.

The WebLogic Platform, from supplier BEA Systems, will allow Allders to capitalise on its existing IT investments, said Thomas Nielsen, IT manager of business applications at the retailer.

“We were looking for [software] that would enable our business to develop without losing the value of our previous investment,” he said. “We need to rapidly develop and deploy new applications to meet customer demand, whilst extracting maximum value from our existing applications.”

The BEA software is Java-based, which was a key driver behind the implementation, Nielsen said. “Standardising on Java technology with BEA’s full suite of WebLogic Server, Integration and Portal applications provided us with the flexibility to build the exact system we required.”
