Co-op looks to reduce energy usage by moving IT to the cloud

Co-op is reducing its energy in its data centres by moving from a traditional data centre model to a fully managed, scalable cloud environment.

The convenience retailer has extended its partnership with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to establish future capabilities and drive growth.

It also aims to reduce energy consumption, support sustainability objectives, and manage the hybrid cloud and SaaS estate for improved resilience and agility.

The Co-operative Group chief digital and information officer Rob Elsey said: “We are delighted to extend our strategic partnership with TCS in enabling us to meet our business objectives and serving and supporting our member-owners who are at the very heart of our business”.

“They have been a great partner, aligned with our growth priorities and future-proofed our infrastructure as we set on the course for continued future expansion – supporting change and transformation in how we work as a business and in our cloud journey.”

The IT change follows the supermarket launching the UK’s first convenience retail media network, which will improve relevancy for shoppers and help brands reach wider audiences.

Elsewhere, Co-op is using discarded office waste to launch the UK’s first own-brand kitchen towel made from 100% recycled content.
