Unstable IT System to Support Their Rapid Growth in China
AMOREPACIFIC experienced rapid growth in the Chinese market. However, with the centralized IT infrastructure in Korea, it made it difficult to operate in China. They experienced systems going down when there’s online platform slowdown and traffic congestion. Their systems also experienced existing high-cost infrastructure operating costs and compliance issues.
Given that the Chinese IT system was located in the data center in Korea, it made the geographical operation difficult. The POS system in China was often down and unable to complete order fulfillment for the ‘Single Day’ on November 11th every year. There were also compliance issues that arose because of the remote location of the data center, which slowed the online service in China and the Chinese customer’s information was located in the Korean data center. Traffic congestion was not enough for existing IT infrastructures.
