Devising Your Online Assortment Game Plan http://www.tcs.com/resources/white_papers/Pages/Online-assortment-game-plan.aspx In order to establish their product authority by leveraging the concept of endless aisle, retailers are increasing the number of SKUs in online channels significantly. This would create a strong need for their IT systems to be robust in terms of actively managing their omni-channel assortments and facilitating quick and pointed analytics on large amount of data.   With ecommerce sales touching USD 1 trillion globally, and US digital commerce poised to touch USD 230 billion, major retailers are fast moving to the online space. According to a recent Gartner report, an overwhelming 76% of shoppers desire consistency in price, promotions, services, and assortments across all retail touch-points.[1] Assortment planning has expanded way beyond creating merchandise mixes for brick-and-mortar stores to stocking the endless aisles offered by digital channels.

Inter-SDN Controller Communication: Using Border Gateway Protocol http://www.tcs.com/resources/white_papers/Pages/InterSDN-Controller-Communication.aspx The widespread adoption of Software Defined Networking (SDN),has given rise to the need for more communication interfaces between SDN controllers. SDN is a new and increasingly popular network architecture that aims at decoupling the control and data planes. OpenFlow is a preferred protocol used for establishing such communication between the control and data planes.   Any SDN network abstraction comprises an application layer (management and service), a control plane, and a data plane. The SDN controller resides in the control plane, which is the middle and most important layer. It provides north-bound APIs to the user for applications and communicates with the data plane through the OpenFlow interface.SDN east-west interface is one way to establish communication between multiple SDN controllers so as to share control plane parameters like Quality of Service (QoS), policy information, and so on. This white paper discusses the need for the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) protocol and how it can be used for inter-SDN controller communication.
