In the world of thinking retail, intelligence is everything.  Only those retailers that embrace digital transformation will shine.

In customer relationships, instore and online, only data and AI can build enduring intimacy.

In store, it’s going to be on-board intelligence and the internet-of-things that keep stocks optimized and promotions buzzing.

Right across the supply chain, it’s data and analysis that help fine tune efficiency and validate ethical behavior.

Retail intelligence and data-driven behaviors are all-pervasive, and we need to question how intelligence adds value to both customer experience and efficiency.  Evidence counts.

Customer experience

Immersive shopping experiences

Digital Hybrid Cloud for Retail

Ensuring your digital infrastructure is fit for the future of Retail

Digital natives expect “anytime, anywhere” access to goods and services, and are far more loyal to convenience than they are to brands. Since many retailers can spend as much as 75% of their IT budgets maintaining older platforms and applications, making these “big iron” systems available 24/7 can be a daunting task.

Cloud is the agent for flexible, scalable change when it comes to simplifying, optimizing and enabling new digital technologies and applications to drive business success. We put cloud at the core of your IT, which ensures all your cloud platforms and cloud services align to your business strategies to create maximum value.

With our Digital Hybrid Cloud solution, we enable retailers to move even the most entrenched technology applications to the cloud.
