In looking at the aforementioned market trends, we have grouped them into 10 key categories that we believe will most affect your business. They address the previously stated market trends and more.The first is the Digital Consumer:What has driven so much of the change in retailing is due to the advent of the digital consumer. Mobility is changing the game in the store. Inexpensive, powerful new mobile devices, particularly smartphones, put seemingly limitless services and information in the hands of both employees and customers. Your customers can bring the internet into your store. From product information, to social advice, to offers, to payments, mobility is changing the face of retail. The challenge is not letting new technology create a barrier to real, personalized customer service. The successful retailers will leverage mobility to build customer relationships and enhance the brand experience.Channel Convergence:This is about combining typically channel-specific capabilities into a new store channel experience. Product search, reviews & recommendations, shopping carts, wish lists, social networking, social media, etc., which are typically only available on the web are being brought into the store shopping experience. Channel convergence is about knocking down the old channel walls and enabling the connected systems to operate together on one device. It’s also about changing the store itself. Stores are becoming smaller with less inventory; designed more as showcases for products andPersonalization:As we have seen, the customer is changing in both ideas, values and level of empowerment. All of the strategic business drivers documented here show that customers demand more value, more attention, and more service. Additionally, customers want to feel like they're special. We want to grow the relationship between the retailer and the customer by leveraging knowledge about the customer and offering personalized services they can’t get elsewhere.Content Explosion:Looking at the digital consumer, converging channels and personalization and you can see that the amount of content that's required to support these is exploding for retailers. This includes consumer created content like reviews, social, etc. The retailer is also managing significant content from manufacturers, like descriptions and images and much, much more.Business Empowerment:Managers and employees are a retailer’s most important, and often most ignored assets. The biggest challenge for store managers is overcoming the continual pressure to manage operating expenses and shrink so they can focus more on providing excellent customer service. The need for store managers to be the retailer’s brand ambassadors on the store floor has only increased. This is even more challenging today because consumers have much more information at their fingertips than ever before. This is forcing retailers to better empower their employees to more quickly and effectively deal with operational issues and provide better service to more knowledgeable customers.Cloud Services:Cloud computing is fast evolving from a futuristic technology into a commercially viable alternative for companies in search of cost-effective service-based solutions. In fact, Gartner Inc. predicts that by 2012, 80 percent of Fortune 1000 enterprises will pay for some cloud-computing service, while 30 percent of them will pay for cloud-computing infrastructure. Retailers are looking at cloud-based solutions to provide benefits like scalability, ease of implementation, lower cost for people and resources, and better QoS. More and more retailers are looking to move servers out of the store and into the cloud and leverage more cloud services at the POS.Operational Optimization:There are always opportunities to improve store operations particularly in areas like sales and returns and managing inventory. Complex and manual processes lead to extended training time and low employee productivity. Further, Wal-Mart has indicated “it can save $12 million for every second it can cut from the checkout process in the U.S.” Inadequate systems are getting in the way of growth and competition. All of the efficiencies achieved by operational optimization translate into time that can be invested in to improving the customer experience. Regulatory Compliance:Another area that is having huge impacts without our businesses is regulatory compliance. PCI, PA-DSS, SOX, Tax and Fiscal requirements are all major challenges that frequently require significant changes to a retailer’s processes and systems. In addition to being compliant, the solutions retailers deploy must be highly flexible and configurable to address regulatory rules that differ around the world and seem to change overnight. Environmental Awareness:Retailer’s are looking for opportunities in driving down their environmental impact. Removing the need for paper receipts and extra hardware like servers not only lowers their totally cost of ownership but the carbon footprint. Additionally, customers are becoming increasingly aware and concerned over product manufacturing location and contents. Providing more information about the retailer’s commitment to green initiatives is an important component in building customer trust.In summary, retailers are seeking single-provider solutions that empower them to drive their business in these key areas.

Customer examples:The best example is Toyota (TMS), where we have been prototyping a system to capture automotive Big Data such as telematics, diagnostic data from vehicle servicing, etc. into a Hadoop environment on BDA. This data would be made available for selective loading into sandbox EID applications, allowing analysts to quickly examine and explore samples of this data, which is high variety, high volume, and unknown value in many cases. Based on what they find, they may select data for loading into Oracle Database for higher performance querying, expand OBI models for broader reporting, or load additional data into production Data Discovery applications for ongoing visibility for business users.We have discussed a similar model alongside our Warranty Claims / Vehicle Quality analysis application at BMW, but are not as far along in actually getting a prototype effort engagedWe discussed an similar model with PepsiCo R&D, with an eye towards aggregating their disparate research data created during product development, especially analysis of new product ingredients, and then making this data available for re-use by other research groups across PepsiCo. Again, we are not as far along in actually realizing this example, but the interest was strong.We have also discussed this architecture with JP Morgan Chase. They have a strong vision of using Hadoop in the manner that this model implies, as a central repository of all sorts of data that may be interesting to re-use. Again, we are early in the more concrete discussions with them around actually adopting EID in this architecture, but the general approach there is highly validating of the depicted approach.Technical notes:We don’t yet have self service data loading for Hadoop into EID in the 3.1 version of the EID product, so we should be careful to avoid suggesting that self service sandbox setup for business users is in the product today. This is planned for 3.2.That said, there are numerous straightforward approaches for setting up this kind of data load on a per-deployment basis with a small bit of development/deployment customization. Options include providing a bit of automation to populate a file-based data sample from Hadoop, which can then be easily picked up and loaded but the out-of-the box EID tool. Another option is to use ODI.
