The year 2022 was marked by geopolitical, economic and structural crises like no other. Consumer confidence slid to an all-time low, dragging down the business climate in the retail sector. Many companies see their economic existence threatened. The numerous economic and structural changes and their reciprocal effects pose enormous challenges for the retail sector. These include technological progress: digitalization, online retailing and e-commerce.
The ever-increasing electronic networking and integration brings benefits and facilitation. New B2B platforms exist that allow companies to communicate with each other more easily. They can also reach their target audience much more easily through online marketing and sales. Direct procurement is on the rise, with goods increasingly going from the manufacturing plant directly to the end consumer. Producers are forming their own supply platforms and cutting out the middleman.
How should business processes be designed to make retailers more resilient in future crises? How can digital solutions support supply chain processes? How can the cloud help make retailers less dependent on their own data centers? We have compiled information to provide answers to such questions.
