 In this article Serdar Yegulap describes Google’s inexpensive alternative to offline cold storage using the cloud storage Nearline. Quoted as “a simple, lost cost, fast-response storage service with quick data backup, retrieval and access”. This service being cheaper gigabyte for gigabyte compared to the more expensive LTO Tapes, also being to access that data within 3 seconds. This will not just be applied to Google’s Cloud Platform users, but, hopefully to a plethora of other brand-name data storage solutions

The Future of Digital Retail

The Future of Digital Retail | Chief Technologist Cloud Strategy | Scoop.it

The next two years will bring about new behavioural realities of device connected retail environments. What sort of shopper habits will develop as new retail technologies become widespread and expected by the consumer? And most importantly, what can retailers actually do about it?

 

Yes, current retail environments (both on and offline) are data-rich and increasingly personalised. But culture hasn’t caught up yet. In the past, technological advances in retail have been defined by the friction they introduced to the shopping process, rather than convenience. Think of the current state of self-checkouts; theoretically timesaving, but in practice just an often-broken inconvenience. It hardly feels like progress.

 

But not for long. Retailers are growing savvy and sophisticated in their use of new technologies to improve customer experience (and their bottom line). As these realities take hold and culture adapts around new technological promise, entirely new consumer patterns and expectations will emerge....

Darcy Bevelacqua's curator insight, March 7, 8:45 AM

Becoming customer centric isn't easy -and is much harder for companies who have a long history of working with their clients Face to Face. Retailers have a big challenge, they need to balence the high cost of real estate, manage a great on line website and train their staff on new ways to interact. Customer expecations continue to rise and keeping up with an engaging experience requires constant innovation. 

SageRave's curator insight, March 7, 12:52 PM

Internet freelancers should not ignore these predictions, but they be careful about using predictions as their sole basis for client acquisition and retention. They are clues, revealing where freelancers might focus their efforts.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 9, 3:20 PM

Many of us already do a lot of shopping online; some of us shop online almost exclusively. A really powerful insight: "Handled clumsily, retailers who predict consumer preferences will be perceived as subverting customer choice. But retailers who use their predictive algorithms to create simplified choice for their customers, while maintaining a consumer’s ability to evaluate and make unilateral purchasing decisions, will thrive."

Jumping all-in with cloud | Chief Technologist Cloud Strategy | Scoop.it
