The Future of Retail: Designing Data Architectures for Digital Success


There’s a revolution underway in the retail sector as the shift to a digital economy transforms how companies create and deliver value.

But the rapid pace of change has also left many retailers grappling with significant challenges. These include dealing with fragmented architectures burdened by significant technical debt, along with the effects of increasing data gravity.

Optimizing Retail Data Exchange

Success in a data-driven business landscape starts with implementing a business platform that can:

  • operate ubiquitously and on-demand
  • augment workflows with real-time intelligence
  • serve customers, partners and employees via digitally enabled interactions across all channels, business functions and points of business presence.

To enable retailers to architect and implement a data-centric infrastructure our expert solution architects have created a Design Guide that provides a roadmap for the successful deployment of solutions to real-world digital transformation use cases. We also outline how to combine this strategy with our Pervasive Datacenter Architecture (PDx™) methodology to optimise data exchange and create exchange centers to scale your digital business.

Our guide works as a companion to the Optimizing Retail Data Exchange Blueprint in our PDx™ content library.

Download your copy of the Design Guide now to discover how to localize data aggregation, staging, analytics, streaming and management at global points of business presence so you can help your organisation remove data gravity barriers, scale and secure data, and unlock its true growth potential.
