Digital Transformation in Retail

Explore intersections of where data and intelligence enable new retail experiences, empower employees, and improve your chances to grow.

March 13 or 14, 2018


Retailers are facing mounting pressure to evolve business models that make sense in a global marketplace characterized by disruptive technological innovations and fierce competition for share of wallet.

E-commerce continues to grow at the expense of brick-and-mortar retail and new players are entering the European retail scene. Store traffic is in decline and today’s digital native customers expect multiple ways to order, purchase, and receive merchandise and products. Technological innovation is enabling a new era, where market leaders have ten times the insights in one-tenth the time, enabling them to outperform the market and take share. The key to winning in this newly defined market is optimizing operations to create new innovative experiences.
