Retailing in a pandemic world
Retail is going through turbulent times in all geographies due to Covid-19. The after-effects will be hugely disruptive for retail – store closures, growth in online and home delivery with strong focus on health and safety across the customer journey for shoppers and employees.
Retailers are rationalizing on store base, getting leaner with decreased headcount and refocusing on anywhere they see an opportunity. Given this grim backdrop, 20% of retailers choose to look at positive and are accelerating some of the previous trends – Digital transformation, IoT, data sharing. In this video, Fujitsu's Executive Director for Global Retail - Richard Clarke talks on how retailers are negotiating this challenge by managing their costs without affecting customer experience.

Enterprise and Cyber Security - Tackling threats in Retail
Retailers have a big challenge: They must adopt new ways of working and integrate new technologies to connect with their customers.
Hackers, criminal gangs and hacktivists are becoming increasingly aware of these technologies and are looking for ways to access retailers’ critical infrastructure to steal data. A holistic view of the threats and risks is becoming increasingly important.
