Retailing, in its many different forms, is probably the most competitive industry as companies strive to serve customers better in terms of the experience, pricing and delivery. They also need to ensure that they do so profitably.

To make matters even worse, they feel that the IT teams are not necessarily treating this as a priority, leaving decision-makers with a feeling of a lack of control over the areas they are responsible for.
