IoT and the Things You Buy

Session Abstract:

Edge and IoT technologies continue to enhance the on-premises retail shopping experience. A key driver is the retail store’s twofold competition — with each other, and with online buying. IoT related applications are serving both the consumer and the retailer, from ease of product location and availability, to theft and inventory management, and in-store customer behavior analytics. Join Dr. Tom Bradicich, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Fellow, and his special guests as they share deep insights into the emerging and extant retail shopping experience, improving customer satisfaction, and enhancing retail business outcomes.
