Analytics in the Age of Omnichannel Retailing

With savvy, smartphone-touting shoppers in abundance, leading retailers know how critical it is to converge their physical, online, and mobile shopping worlds. Technologies like location-based mobile apps, augmented reality, and advanced search are hastening the inexorable blurring between physical and online retailing – and, for those retailers caught unaware, between them and their competitors.

As retailers evolve toward an omnichannel environment, much of their success will depend on how effectively they use big-data and analytics, as business professors Erik Brynjolfsson, Yu Jeffrey Hu, and Mohammad S. Rahman note in their recent MIT Sloan Management Review report, "Competing in the Age of Omnichannel Retailing." Tune in as the three authors join us for a discussion on success strategies for omnichannel retailing. You'll learn how big-data and analytics can be the basis by which you:

  • Finesse pricing strategies
  • Create new shopping experiences for customers
  • Fortify customer relationships
  • Capitalize on the manufacturing opportunity
