  10. 10. Business Intelligence BI is a must rather than a may for building and retaining the competitive advantage; high quality BI will continue to make significant impact on planning and customer relationships • BI perceived an important strategic tool as knowing the customer is the most important aspect of retail business today than ever • Integrated real-time BI both with intelligence providing systems like POS and intelligence consuming systems like assortment planning will be ideal • Web 2.0, POS integration,Video surveillance are new avenues of collecting value data for BI • Video surveillance is always providing solutions in Loss Prevention space10 © 2009 Wipro Ltd - Confidential
  11. 11. Web 2.0 Adopters of Web 2.0 will build a stronger relationship with the next generation customers and obtain valuable insight into their wants • Interactive Web 2.0 technologies - blogs, rich media, podcasts, wikis, Web surveys and social networking forums including Facebook and MySpace • Gaining consumer insight, building brand awareness and increasing customer loyalty • Also obtain valuable information that can impact an unexpected area - the supply chain. • What goods will customers want? And when will they want them? • Each season retailers undergo a complex process of utilizing supply chain planning tools to evaluate past sales, margins and returns in order to create financial, merchandise, channel and key item plans for upcoming seasons. • By engaging in ongoing conversations through Web 2.0 technologies, retailers have the unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the minds of their consumers • For marketing and promotional campaigns, cutting-edge retailers are taking a step further and integrating the information into their inventory and assortment planning.11 © 2009 Wipro Ltd - Confidential
  12. 12. Supply Chain – New Qualifiers (Green,Visible) Supply chain continues to get impacted by global developments, at the same time continues to provide opportunities to gain business value, tangible or intangible • Green Supply Chain – SCM is more international, complex and dynamic – Corporations are now held accountable for reducing environmental impact while continuing to meet the needs of shareholders and customers – A green supply chain can be achieved in a manner that will save an organization time and money and improve product quality • Visible Supply Chain – SCM no longer means just making sure that the right resources and the right materials move to the right place at the right time. – Merely pushing information about partners or products into a report that lands on a managers desk every day will not achieve the goals. Nor will a dashboard, even if it delivers that same information in real time. – What todays supply chain managers need instead is a supply chain that is visible. Meaning that data is delivered in a way that enables managers to know whatever they need to know whenever they need to, at whatever level of detail they need, and that allows them to analyze the data and take action based on the results of their analysis. The essence is the ability to know the location and status of all physical components, from raw materials to finished goods, as they move from suppliers through the stages of production to delivery to customers.12 © 2009 Wipro Ltd - Confidential
  13. 13. Supply Chain – New Qualifiers (Sentient) • Sentient Supply Chain – Three macro trends • Worldwide demographic shifts are opening doors for retailers who react quickly, and are posing major risks for those that stand by and do nothing • Falling trade barriers are creating opportunities for retailers to source product in parts of the world where production is significantly less expensive • Geopolitical uncertainties have created unstable conditions in consumer and commodities markets. – Supply Chain from being reactive and linear model to a model that is flexible, intelligent, aware of real-time changes and better able to predict product demand. – Four operating principles of the future Sentient Supply Chain - Flexibility, Intelligence, Awareness and Precognition – Building the Sentient Supply Chain • Integrating disjointed and fragmented workflows and data sources, and converging siloed business processes • Embedding intelligence throughout united workflows in the form of advanced constraint-based optimization and forecasting algorithms • Accommodating multiple languages and user roles and becoming process-centric and flexible to accommodate the unique and distinct business processes that promote competitive advantage • Delivering measurable value at every step of the transformation process13 © 2009 Wipro Ltd - Confidential
  14. 14. Supply Chain – New Technologies New technologies making incremental but differentiating impact on the supply chain • Connectivity WLAN, mobile networks, Bluetooth • Voice and GPS communication integrated into rugged computers • Speech recognition • Digital imaging • Portable printing • 2D & other bar coding advance • RFID • RTLS • Remote management14 © 2009 Wipro Ltd - Confidential
  15. 15. Merchandizing • All the vendors offer similar solutions • Nothing much to look forward to. Seems to be quite mature area. • Tomax has introduced SaaS/HaaS based solutions but does not have any notable clients15 © 2009 Wipro Ltd - Confidential

  17. 17. Payments • Ongoing advancements in mobile payments technologies, such as RFID, Near Field Communications (NFC) and Short Message Service (SMS) have helped spark the growth of contactless payments. MasterCards PayPass® is an example of one company exploring the use of NFC technology, while PayPal Mobile, a text-topay company, employs SMS. • Contactless Payments – Barclaycard • Online Payment Fraud • PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliance – Set of security standards that were created by the major credit card companies (American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa International) to protect their customers from increasing identity theft and security breaches. Any company that accepts, processes, or stores credit card information is required to comply with the PCI security standards.17 © 2009 Wipro Ltd - Confidential
