The increasing consumer expectations in shopping experience are pushing the retailers to a massive transformation in which transactions are turning into experiences and products into services.
On top of that, the speed of delivery and easy comparison of pricing are challenging current supply chain models and squeezing the retailer’s profitability. Many are taking the challenge of the omnichannel approach into an opportunity to maximize the customer experience and boost sales.
Companies are urgently looking for innovative technologies to assess the less predictable purchasing behavior, to bring the customers closer and to deliver as soon as possible. How to transform those challenges into new sources of growth?

The future of retail is being disrupted on both the demand and supply side. Online shopping, pop up brands and low cost of online promotion are affecting the buy side heavily. Meanwhile, the democratization of design and production mean that there’s an explosion of market entrants. Retailers are turning from transactions into experiences and products are turning into services. As an example, Amazon Basics is now the biggest seller of batteries in the world.
"Today, if you’re not disrupting yourself, someone else is; your fate is to be either the disrupter or the disrupted. There is no middle ground."
