The retail industry has been facing major headwinds spawned by disruptors like Amazon, Alibaba, and Walmart, as well as hundreds of hungry startups, that have built lean, analytics-driven organizations based on scale and efficiency. The goal of these organizations is to drive top-line revenue and reduce operating costs. Overall, revenue and margins are under pressure as these more efficient and scalable disruptors draw more buyers and sales with sharper pricing, personalized customer journeys, and finely tuned assortments. Meanwhile, they are driving down costs through efficiencies in supply chain & inventory management.
The stakes are high. It is estimated that hundreds of billions of dollars are lost every year through missed opportunities and excess costs due to issues. Increasingly, a broad range of solutions providers and pioneering retailers are launching AI-driven solutions that are taking the following steps: leveraging contextual personal data and predictive analytics; improving search functionality through sharper meta-tagging and visual search; creating digital maps of in-store inventory; and applying predictive analytics and data science.
