Hepsiburada will use Google Cloud's Big Query platform to leverage data and insights and identify customers' needs more precisely, improving its data driven decision-making environment.
Boosting Efficiency For Customers
Google Cloud's expertise in analytics and machine learning will support Hepsiburada as it develops a robust demand forecasting system, enabling the ability to identify supplier lead and estimated delivery times more precisely.

This is because of our pioneering zero-trust architecture which provides retailers with high security, combined with more than a decade of experience managing and securing cloud applications at a global scale. We are collaborating with Hepsiburada to support their ambitious growth plans, through providing the security, flexibility and scalability needed that will enable them to penetrate more market segments and transform into a global retailer."
