Distribution and Services Global Outlook 2012-2015
Following the successful relaunch of our Microsoft partner guides, we are proud to introduce this brand new annual publication for global retail, hospitality, distribution and services industry leaders. With an impressive directory of Microsoft partners operating in this space, as well as unique insights into Microsoft’s technology roadmap and regional industry trends, this guide is designed to give you a real overview of what will be happening across these industries over the next three years and beyond.
Today’s value-driven consumers use a variety of channels to seek out the best offers available, make purchasing decisions and buy products. This is affecting organisations across the retail, hospitality, distribution and services industries alike, with many having to adapt to ensure they remain competitive in the market and offer the service customers expect. Cloud computing, social computing and the rise of smartphones and tablet devices are just some of the technological developments on offer today that are helping organisations evolve accordingly.
Leading organisations across these industries, including Jessops, Zilian, s.Oliver and Pautric Group are taking advantage of these latest technology developments offered by Microsoft and its partners to handle the challenges they currently face. In the case study section, you can learn more about what they are doing and read many other examples of cutting-edge technology implementations together with solution profiles, which highlight how partners are revolutionising the way organisations operate in these industries. In addition, leading experts in their field discuss the issues affecting organisations in our viewpoints section from page 31. And finally, in the detailed company directory, find out more about each Microsoft partner operating in this space, including the industry-relevant products, solutions and services they deliver.
