Retailers Must Prioritize Becoming an SAP Intelligent Enterprise

If there is one sector that has had to step up in the name of digital transformation in the past few years, it’s the Retail Industry. Already faced with multitudes of new channels, technologies, and other disruptors, the industry saw customer behavior shift dramatically during the last two years. As if that wasn’t enough, the global pandemic forced retailers to change not just products and services, but also forced the adaptation of business and operating models to meet changing customer shopping demands.

And the revolution isn’t slowing down. Experts believe that retailers that are ready and able to harness the power of technology and data will be at the forefront of the industry for years to come.

In Retailers Must Prioritize Becoming an SAP Intelligent Enterprise — done in partnership with SAP and Intel — we explore why the future of the Retail Industry lies in the SAP Intelligent Enterprise strategy, the technologies that power intelligent enterprises, and the steps organizations can take today to begin their transformation.
