Retail Industry Landscape
There has never been a more exciting time to be at the intersection of retail and technology. The retail industry is continuing to evolve with the digitally savvy consumer as the driving force behind the changes. Information is available everywhere. Consumers are well informed and expect seamlessly integrated and curated experiences across all channels, be it online, in-store, or on mobile. While it is difficult to predict what customers will demand next, there is work that retailers can do today to equip their business with the right technology that will allow them to be nimble and ready to adapt to future market shifts and disruptions.
The retailers who are embracing digital transformation today to plan for their future are destined for success. This means not just adopting the latest technology but supporting business models that are truly transformative and go a step further to build their own digital capabilities on top of that technology. It’s these digital capabilities that will provide the foundation to keep up with the ever-changing customer demands.
With the continued evolution of the retail industry, the consumer goods industry must follow suit in order to keep up with the needs of their consumers, shoppers, and customers (retailers).
Consumer goods companies are highly matrixed and multifaceted businesses covering marketing, sales, distribution, manufacturing, and supply chain. With multiple dependencies across an enterprise of internal and external parties, implementing the right intelligent solutions can enable connectivity and productivity across the entire ecosystem, improve speed to market and retail execution, and increase sales.
Effects of disruption in the industry
Retail Trends and Disruptors
The typical customer that retailers face today is constantly connected, well-informed of their needs and wants, and demands a great shopping experience.
Ninety-two percent of shoppers state that they used a digital device prior to or during their shopping trip for product-related research.
Retailers understand that these days the shopping journey is no longer linear and can start and end in any channel the customer chooses (desktop, mobile, tablet, or in-store). Consumers expect consistency across every channel. In order to meet customers’ ever-evolving expectations, retailers need to ensure their business is enabled to deliver a seamless and personalized experience across every channel.

Consumers’ preferences are rapidly evolving. There has been a seismic shift in peoples’ purchasing preferences. Good for me and good for the planet are now high on all consumers’ agendas. Convenience is also key with millennials allocating the highest share of their food budget on prepared foods, and in the next two years, 20 percent of all grocery sales will be purchased online.
