Inside Retail launches the 2017 Future of Retail Report

FutureofRetailReportOctomedia, publishers of Inside Retail have launched the 2017 Future of Retail Report, in collaboration with key suppliers in the industry, to provide insights into the next frontier of retail.

Ask someone twenty years ago how they will see the world in the next ten years and you would get a fairly clear response and outlook. Now we can barely imagine what the next five will hold.

As Ray Kurzweil illustrates, “our intuition about the future is linear. But the reality of information technology is exponential, and that makes a profound difference. If I take 30 steps linearly, I get to 30. If I take 30 steps exponentially, I get to a billion.”

The report features the expertise of Thoughtworks; Mood Media Australia; Emarsys; Booodl; Domo; Pozzy Location Intelligence; RedSeed; Orange Line; Zendesk; and zipPay.

Retailers are able to download a free copy of the report by clicking here.
