San Ramon, Calif., December 07, 2022 – Grid Dynamics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: GDYN) (Grid Dynamics), a leader in enterprise-level digital transformation services and solutions, announced today it is releasing a new Pricing and Promotion Optimization Starter Kit. Developed to leverage Microsoft Azure, the new kit enables customers to create price management pipelines on Azure that leverage historical sales data, product attributes, competitor pricing, and information about various external factors to automatically and intelligently optimize list prices and promotions.

The solution provides a reference implementation customized to meet a specific customer's needs. The primary goal of the Price Optimization Starter Kit is to reduce the costs, timelines, and risks associated with the development of price management solutions without compromising on the flexibility of the open source-based approach.

The Price Optimization Starter Kit provides a reference pipeline that includes the following steps:

  1. Data preparation. Sales and catalog data are loaded and transformed in a format suitable for downstream modeling.
  2. Demand forecasting. The demand forecasting model is used to evaluate the demand for different pricing scenarios.
  3. Demand analysis. The dependencies captured by the demand forecasting model are visualized to provide insights into the demand structure.
  4. Price and promotion optimization. The forecasting model is evaluated for a grid of pricing parameters, and profit-optimal prices are determined for each combination of an SKU and date.

“Through Microsoft Azure Marketplace, customers around the world can easily find, buy, and deploy partner solutions they can trust, all certified and optimized to run on Azure,” said Jake Zborowski, General Manager, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp. “We’re happy to welcome Grid Dynamics to the growing Azure Marketplace ecosystem.”

“Our new Pricing and Promotion Optimization Starter Kit builds upon Grid Dynamics’ domain expertise for helping companies reduce the costs, timelines, and risks associated with the development of price management solutions without impacting the open source-based approach,” said Ilya Katsov, Vice President of Technology for Grid Dynamics. “The depth and breadth of knowledge and skills embedded within our global team combined with the renowned capabilities of Microsoft Azure offers companies greater efficiencies and cost savings to help keep their businesses moving forward and positions Grid Dynamics for future growth.”

Grid Dynamics’ Pricing and Promotion Optimization Starter Kit was designed by revenue management experts and data scientists who specialize in price optimization solutions according to the industry’s best practices. The new offering implements the reference price optimization pipeline using only open-source Python libraries and cloud-native services. Additionally, the solution can be deployed and integrated with real data sources in a matter of hours, and then evaluated and customized based on the unique requirements of the company with no proprietary or licensing costs.
