It’s no secret that many retail and hospitality IT organizations are challenged with lean teams and robust demands for innovative technology. Today’s IT team is tasked with delivering the technology to support the omnichannel experiences expected today and for the business to be competitive. Many companies have turned to operating from a Cloud – only infrastructure, and while this kind of approach to store level delivery may allow for centralization, the limitations on connectivity and endpoint management create bottlenecks and limited scalability as more big data and next generation technologies are added to the ever-growing application stack. These bottlenecks translate into disconnected and unsatisfactory customer experiences due to inconsistent connections and lost IT support labor hours leading to overall loss of productivity. Yikes.
So, you have to ask yourself, are your stores or restaurants built on a digital-ready and scalable platform?
Today’s large-scale retail and hospitality operators know that the rapid pace of technological innovation requires a solid and predictable foundation. IT teams need to feel like they can kick the tires on new ideas, technology and customer engagement applications without sacrificing a proven framework.
