Industry Trends

The retail industry has changed significantly over the past decade and is shifting towards new values and new main assets. Firstly, there is an overall shift of companies’ focus — from being product-oriented to customer-centric models. Secondly, the companies’ main capabilities have become collaborative rather than self-contained. Thirdly, the key asset has changed as well — from tangible assets to data & consumer engagement. Finally, the main success factor has switched from large & structured ecosystems to lean & agile models. All these are caused by tech move. Technologies influence entire business aspects from marketing, sales, orders, check-out to logistics operations. Forward-thinking retailers should keep an eye on future tech trends. Others will be left behind.
