Capitalize on new opportunities in the retail sector – start with technological innovation 

While inflation and cost pressures remain a challenge, the retail industry now sees plenty of opportunities for growth. A report by Deloitte highlights that, as the global economy gradually rebounds from recession, the retail sector can capitalize on new technologies and changing consumer behavior. 

AI:

Retailers are harnessing generative AI to create hyper-personalized, automated marketing activities and product recommendations tailored to individual shopper preferences. AI is also supporting the retail sector with pattern recognition, predictive modeling, and fast analysis of data and unstructured information (such as customer feedback). 

Data sharing:

The retail sector is also looking into improving supply chain resilience. To this end, retailers expect to substantially expand data sharing and collaboration with value chain partners to better anticipate demands for goods and expedite deliveries. This comes with a wide adoption of IoT and big data analytics.

Downtime:

In addition to navigating these evolving trends, the retail sector faces the challenge of managing vast volumes of data generated from various touchpoints across the supply chain. With the proliferation of IoT devices, online transactions, and customer interactions, retailers are dealing with an unprecedented amount of data. In such a data-rich environment, downtime during SAP projects can be detrimental to business operations, leading to missed opportunities and decreased customer satisfaction. At SNP, we understand the critical importance of ensuring uninterrupted operations while implementing necessary changes and upgrades. By leveraging our expertise, retailers can confidently embrace digital transformation initiatives without compromising their day-to-day activities.
