It’s no secret many retail and hospitality IT orgs are challenged with lean teams and robust demands for innovation. Today’s IT team is tasked with delivering the new technology needed to support the omnichannel customer experiences expected today. Many companies have turned to operating from a Cloud-only infrastructure, especially after the pandemic’s effects. While this kind of approach to on-prem delivery may allow for centralization, the limitations on connectivity and endpoint management create massive bottlenecks and limited scalability as more big data and next generation technologies are added to the ever-growing application stack. These bottlenecks translate to disconnected and unsatisfactory customer experiences when we’re working with enterprises that have more than 25 locations.
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. Having a flexible, OS independent and extensible edge computing platform provides this kind of optimal approach to quickly delivering the next digital and immersive technologies at scale.
