    Will endless aisles and better supply chain management negate Amazon’s edge?

    It takes more than just applying the right technology to solve problems like out-of-stocks, that are so deeply engrained into the retail supply chain. Inventory visibility remains weak and many retailers struggle make effective matches with consumer searches to make a sale. It’s going to take strong top-down leadership from retailers to prioritize their trading partner relationships and collaborate more efficiently using data standards and proven tools like RFID to catch up to consumer expectations for speed, product selection, and convenience. Retailers eyeing technology like AI or machine learning as a solution need to think, “how prepared is our product data to handle that kind of automation?” As the article states, it’s going to need “thoughtful” use and preparation, otherwise a company’s investment in emerging technology can backfire as issues like data quality have the potential to be magnified.

    Why has retail’s transition to data-driven enterprises been so arduous?

    Inventory visibility should be a key component of any discussion about leveraging data analytics. As we have seen with retailers who fully embrace analytics and excel when it comes to implementing them, their success is nothing without the ability to make successful matches between what the consumer wants and what they have available to sell to them. The most innovative, data-driven retailers realize that item-level RFID is the key to knowing what is in-stock, where it’s located and having confidence that inventory levels are accurate.
