Are Google Glass users glassholes, or merely the misunderstood vanguard of technology? | ExtremeTech | Benoit Massé Tech Trends | Scoop.it
A new enthusiast hack can kill the WiFi on any local Google Glass by checking for a common MAC address, then kicking the device off the network. It's cheap, easy to deploy, and says a great deal about the upward fight Google faces to make its face computer ubiquitous.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, January 20, 2014 2:54 PM

Retailers have been doing forecasting for a long time, predicting from previous sales and market conditions (and their best judgement), what to order for each one of their stores. When you have hundreds of stores, this is not a simple tasks, and it often requires years of experience - if you want to do it well. Because forecasting errors are very costly, resulting in lost sales or products that stay on shelves or racks and must be transferred to others stores, or worse, discounted at the end of the season.


I've worked on systems - from simple excel spreadsheets to more complex applications - that automate the predictive aspect and provide tools to facilitate the forecasting process. But never were the tools using invidual client profiles  to make the prediction. They always used global store-level or regional sales numbers. 


So, at least in theory, established retailers can have a leg up.


But Amazon may (again) shock retailers into a digital transformation, bringing their individual client sales data into account when doing the forecast. This will require retailers to include individual customer transactions and possibly their "wish lists" and online search information, to include in your forecasts. Data is there but few reatilers have the systems or the integration to bring this data in a timely manner to the "forecasting team" desk.


Amazon has been doing this with "replesnishment" options where they send you products on a regular schedule, so you don't have to "shop" for them: they come at your door at a predefined interval you control. And they give you rebates for sticking to your schedude (predictability is invaluable in a supply chain!).


If you do, then your forecast will undeniably be better. If you don't companies like amazon, with lower overhead, will send your clients products before they even consider going to store to see what's on the shelves!
