by Daniel Newman | July 12, 2021

On this special episode of the Futurum Tech Podcast – Interview Series I am joined by Kristen Call, IoT Specialist at Intel and Praful Karanth, Retail Industry Advisor for SAP. This is the second episode in a new series — done in partnership with SAP and Intel — where I will be speaking with advisors and executives across seven different industries on the state of their industry and how SAP Industry Cloud powered by Intel technology plays a vital role in the future.

The Future of the Retail Industry

In our conversation we discussed the following:

  • The current state of the retail industry
  • The areas retailers need to focus on during this period of recovery
  • Crucial capabilities retailers need to have to serve the digital consumer
  • What obstacles retailers need to overcome today to be successful tomorrow
  • Some of the things that retailers should look forward to as they plan their technology journey

The retail industry has been undergoing big changes in the last few years thanks to the advancement of technology. My conversation with Kristen and Praful explores these changes and a little bit more. It’s definitely one you don’t want to miss.
