Intel on Monday and Tuesday will have a big presence at the annual NRF (National Retail Federation) show at the Javits Center, where it will showcase several highly-visual, interactive technologies, all of which bring to life the Internet of Things and Big Data as major trends driving the retail industry’s continuing transformation. These ideas -- like a full-length digital “mirror,” gesture-based product customization and a solution to eliminate long lines in stores -- are all aimed to improve the retail experience for customers and retailers alike. These innovations enable consumers to shop the looks from favorite television programs from their couch using a tablet or smartphone and play games to earn digital currency, and helps the 59 percent of retailers who cite lack of consumer insights as their biggest data-related problem with Intel big data solutions.
With retailing set to change more in the next 10 years than in the past 50 years, Intel will show how it's working to bring those future tech innovations to the next level today – with better than ever interconnectivity, digital platforms, cloud storage, data analytics, mobile devices, perceptual computing and targeted marketing.
Demos that combine the best of digital and physical retailing to improve the in- and out-of-store experience, engage shoppers and deliver a more personalized experience by taking vast amounts of customer data and using it effectively and responsibly will be found at NRF. From e-commerce and mobile shopping to “endless-aisle” capabilities like in-store kiosks that allow shoppers to order out-of-stock or online-only items, there will also be a focus on connecting brands and customers through all points of the shopping experience at any time, location or device making the Internet of Things a reality for retailers.
