Topic: Retail Business Intelligence: A Work in Progress Becomes a Critical Necessity

Abstract: Rapid shifts in consumer behavior and proliferation of new channels are forcing retailers to cope with new data sources, new ways of looking at analytics and new analytics capabilities, like high performance databases and visualization techniques. Add in new form factors, like tablets and smart phones, and a discipline that is theoretically staid and well-established is suddenly upended. Although retailers have not made much progress in establishing and executing against a business intelligence strategy, they report that their priorities and opportunities have shifted significantly. RSR’s Nikki Baird presents the results of RSR’s latest benchmark on retail BI, including an overview of how much retailers have altered their BI strategies as a result of the disruption
