IBM & SAP Employees and their retail customers are invited to Retail Solutions Day on June 20th from 7 a.m. - 11 p.m. EST
Today's retail environment is evolving at a breathtaking pace, and it's not just about providing the lowest price or even the best selection anymore. Today, the successful retail firms connect with customers in every imaginable way. They uncover customer preferences and shopping behaviors, and the market trends those preferences and behaviors cause. Successful retailers turn that information into actionable intelligence. Join the IBM and SAP Alliance team at the IBM Virtual Client Center - Lab For SAP Solutions as we share innovative approaches to optimizing everything from analytical processes to the timing of promotions, and forecasting of future demand.

Abstract: Getting to know your customers, individually as well as by segment, and effectively using that information to build solid relationships, is a critical competitive issue. But most companies struggle with the problem of how to really make this happen. The answer is now within reach. By collecting and analyzing all aspects of customer interactions as well as many other kinds of structured and unstructured customer information, you can gain valuable insight into individual preferences and buying behavior -and even the current activities and shopping objectives of specific consumers. This can’t be achieved with just a single system or process. You have to collect every piece of available information, from inside and outside your organization and then use it to drive insight and to power your customer interactions.
Our unique and powerful solution is the marriage of IBM and SAP's innovative technologies. We have combined SAP’s CRM, HANA, and mCommerce platforms with the powerful IBM RESEARCH Analytics Engine, IBM’s Interactive world class creative design capabilities, IBM’s leading position in mobile application development, and countless years of experience in delivering pre-configured SAP solutions to create the cloud based Enhanced Loyalty Management Solution for SAP.
