Connect with CSC on our latest research and insights, and how it feels to be a disruptor in traditional retail spaces.
CSC Engineering Manager Bobber Cheng and Senior Software Engineer Ronit Rudra coauthored an AWS blog on CSC's new PIM system.
CSC Generation is a company that focuses on acquiring overlooked stores and catalog-based retailers and transforming them into high-performance, digital-first brands. As we grew through multiple acquisitions, it became apparent that our legacy product information system (PIM), backed by relational databases, was no longer able to handle the ever-increasing product inventory across all our brands.
In order to meet the scale required, we developed a new PIM system called CorePIM, which at its heart, uses a knowledge graph powered by the managed graph database service Amazon Neptune. Sitting tangential to the knowledge graph and supporting our APIs are a set of microservices that are tightly integrated with other AWS services like Amazon OpenSearch Service and Amazon Kinesis Data Streams.

How do you define company culture? For us at CSC Generation, this is one of the most important questions we ask HR leaders during interviews, yet 80% of responses fail to meet our standards. Most candidates place varying emphasis on employee engagement, team morale, corporate policies, and even personal benefits and perks. These answers feel like they define culture, but they don’t. When we move beyond first order thinking it becomes clear that these are either inputs for or results of culture.
