The retail sector is undergoing a major transformation as a result of changing market conditions that threaten the ongoing success of established players that have dominated their market segments for decades. New competition is emerging from online retailers that require fewer overheads and can offer more favorable prices and larger product portfolios than bricks and mortar stores.

As margins are increasingly squeezed, retailers are looking at more innovative ways to differentiate and add value for their demanding customers by creating in-store experiences that also need to integrate seamlessly with digital channels including mobile platforms.

- Retailers increasingly compete on customer experience through mobile solutions and augmented reality in stores, while also improving efficiency by reducing any friction such as queuing at checkouts or waiting for shop assistants to look up items
- The shift from data center hardware to software-defined and cloud-based solutions will continue in 2017; however the focus is on hybrid solutions with efficient workload management, virtualization and multi-cloud environments to avoid vendor lock-ins
- Retailers look to upgrade their supply chain management systems and introduce real-time asset visibility to achieve cost savings by eliminating any unnecessary steps in distribution and keeping lower inventory levels
