Innovation, innovation, innovation! We all hear the innovation term thrown around daily when talking about various ideas, projects, companies, etc. But innovation is a studied science, it has been thoroughly researched and often follows a specific pattern. The pattern of innovation is fascinating and it is playing out right now at Best Buy. Riak has been an integral part in the transformation push to re-platform Best Buy's eCommerce platform. Riak's architecture has helped Best Buy build and operate its new platform with Riak playing a key role.
From a strategic perspective, the growth of both the use of Riak and the use of the services exposed through Riak fall directly into the pattern of innovation.
