Casey’s is partnering with Acumera Reliant Platform to support the company’s digital transformation and edge computing initiatives. Acumera Reliant Platform will integrate with Casey’s legacy systems and accommodate modern application architectures, providing a core software foundation for unique retail, fuel, and hospitality application providers with specific operating requirements, the companies announced.

The announcement between Casey’s and Acumera marks a significant milestone in enabling a scalable technology foundation of Casey's over 2,600 locations. Sanjeev Satturu, chief information officer for Casey’s, said, “With edge computing Casey’s is bringing processing power into the store where it’s needed the most.”

Mike Heine, director, business technology and architecture for Casey’s, shared “edge computing is a foundation for technology to scale with our business growth, creates efficiencies that make technology smart and convenient, and leads to a friction-free experience for our team members and guests.”

“Today’s modern convenience, retail, and hospitality brands operating at scale face significant challenges, with a requirement to deliver next-generation applications and experiences consistently across thousands of locations. With the Acumera Reliant Platform, legacy systems, container-based applications, and digital content are all delivered and managed at scale, along with fully integrated monitoring and observability,” commented Phil Stead, vice president of sales at Acumera.

According to the companies, the collaboration enables Casey’s to take an agnostic approach to cloud hosting providers, physical edge hardware vendors, and third-party application vendors. Acumera's flexible and composable centralized cloud management has been extended to Casey’s build partner, facilitating system staging at scale. The companies noted that through the system, Casey’s retains full control and flexibility, optimizing the selection of physical hardware vendors and compute to meet both near-term and strategic objectives.

“Casey's deployment of Acumera Reliant Platform is now the foundation for consistent operations and represents a singular approach to all next-generation system delivery across all new initiatives—all able to operate locally with high availability without WAN connectivity,” stated Richard Newman, CRO at Acumera.
