Consumer goods and retail vertical to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.
The consumer goods and retail industry vertical is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The world of retail is changing rapidly, not just in terms of the stores we buy from, but how we shop, when how we pay for goods and the way in which those goods move through the supply chain. The impact of this has redefined the perception of customer experience and the standards retailers today are expected to reach and exceed. Multi-cloud platforms provide retailers with flexibility and allow them to do storage and computing at a lower cost. Examples of this are the UK’s retailing giant, Sainsbury’s and Argos. The merger of the two companies was facilitated by the adoption of a multi-cloud platform because combining the operational requirements of both businesses would have been impossible on-premises. Through multi-cloud, the businesses were able to blend their business processes and maximized reach. Retailers use data to connect the e-commerce and in-store shopping experiences, and the only way they can do this accurately and efficiently is through flexible, scalable technology. The rise of selling on social media platforms also means integrating payment into the user experience, bringing security and protection of customers’ data to the forefront of retailers’ minds.
