Software-Defined Stores for Retail
New use cases are transforming in-store customer experiences. Tectonic changes in customer buying patterns, tastes, and consumption models mean that retailers must re-invent their in-store and online presence to delight and engage existing and new customers.
In order to rapidly deploy innovative new applications that drive new lines of business and transform customer experiences, retailers should develop the “Store of the Future” that is truly software-defined and agile. Software-defined store architecture helps drive both incremental business improvements as well as the transformation that could lead to big payoffs down the road.
Over the last few years, Kubernetes has emerged as the de-facto standard platform for this application development, specifically for micro-services deployment and container orchestration. However, it has several limitations for building out software-defined stores at scale.
In this whitepaper, learn about:
- Examples of innovative in-store use cases
- Challenges with in-store IT management
- Why Software-Defined stores and why Kubernetes
- Challenges of managing 1000s of retail stores with Kubernetes
- A SaaS managed solution
