RangeMe CEO Nicky Jackson Among Progressive Grocer's 2018 Top Women in Grocery

SOLON, Ohio and SAN FRANCISCO, June 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Progressive Grocer named Nicky Jackson, founder and CEO of RangeMe, as one of the winners of its 2018 Top Women in Grocery awards for her contribution to the food retail industry via the continued growth of the RangeMe platform, and her current leadership of the company post-acquisition under ECRM.

Nicky was awarded in the programs' Senior Level Executive category, and will be recognized during an awards gala in Chicago this coming November. She is also featured along with other winners in the June issue of Progressive Grocer.

"Nicky is a great example of the tremendous impact women are having in this industry," said Greg Farrar, CEO of ECRM. "Her leadership and the success of RangeMe have directly impacted the way retailers discover products today, and we congratulate her on this well-deserved honor."

Nicky was nominated for her various achievements during the 12 months leading up to March 2018. During this time, RangeMe hit several key milestones, including growing the platform from 60,000 active suppliers from last year to its current 135,000+ active suppliers. RangeMe has continued to add retailers that are using the platform to manage all inbound product submissions, including Target, CVS, Whole Foods Market, Albertsons, Ulta, Sephora, Petco, Wakefern and Rite Aid.

This is the third consecutive year in which the industry has recognized Nicky for her contributions to retail. Shop.org named RangeMe as its 2016 Startup of the Year, and last year she received the Path to Purchase Institute Women of Excellence Award for the Innovation category. In addition to these awards, Nicky has a chair on NRF's Digital Council, and has spoken at several leading retail events.

"I'm truly honored to receive this award amongst other incredible women in the grocery sector," said Nicky. "It's truly an incredible time for our industry and exciting to see so many women recognized for the work they are doing to drive change and the success of the grocery sector here in the US. Diversity is the key ingredient which makes the RangeMe business and our industry so successful and I'd like to thank Progressive Grocer for recognizing this."

Nicky's accomplishments over the past year include:

  • The sale of RangeMe to ECRM in June 2017.
  • The launch of RangeMe Verified™, a premium service that allows retail buyers to more easily identify those products and companies that are business-ready.
  • The development of a Nielsen-powered sales data integration for retailers (RangeMe is a Nielsen Connected Partner)

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...

How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes.
