Retail

Retail is transforming. Retailers need to reduce costs and increase efficiency in a challenging market where consumer spending is being squeezed and costs are rising. 

At the same time, they need to invest in online presence, refresh core systems, and develop smarter personalised offers, in addition to rethinking the role of their stores and embracing new ideas such as augmented reality and data analytics. Retailers have also been the target of recent high-profile ransomware attacks and IT failures, so it is even more important to ensure that critical business processes keep running, especially during seasonal rushes.

Retail

Retailers face many challenges:


Downtime 

Ransomware attacks or system failure prevents access to vital data, such as payment systems, stock level reporting, pricing systems and POS with downtime estimated to cost retailers £3,675 per minute.

High-profile IT outages 

Financial implications don’t stop once the issue is resolved. Profit loss is painful, but more harmful is the damaged reputation of retailers. One outage during peak times could cause thousands of current or potential future customers to turn to competitors.

Shift to hybrid 

Retail IT workloads like merchandise analytical functions, store back office and payment systems are utilizing a broad range of hardware and storage solutions creating a hybrid environment that is harder to manage and recover.

Regulatory compliance

PCI-DSS, PA-DSS or the EU GDPR require IT to implement technical safeguards, including regular disaster recovery testing.
