MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Ceridian announces Crate and Barrel, the leading destination for home furnishings, accessories and decor, has been honored with an inaugural Retail Innovator Award from Retail TouchPoints. The Retail Innovator Award recognizes top executives who have improved the consumer shopping experience and uncovered new ways to positively impact the retail industry with innovative ideas and solutions. Edward Rennemann, chief transformational officer at Crate and Barrel, was nominated for his stewardship in helping technology play a more prominent role in advancing the organization's operational and engagement objectives.
"It is an honor to accept this award on behalf of the company and my team," says Edward Rennemann, chief transformational officer at Crate and Barrel. "Labor efficiency and sales conversion improvements are no doubt the most significant gains resulting from our use of Dayforce HCM. Also having an HCM system of record that automatically accounts for a myriad of labor laws has helped the company better relate to associates - facilitating rapport while demonstrating through an employee facing system that Crate and Barrel knows its workforce, cares for them and is engaged with them."
"The Retail Innovator Awards honors those retail executives and thought leaders who think outside the box to develop and foster innovative concepts and strategies that help move the overall retail industry forward in today's world of ever-changing technology," says Debbie Hauss, editor-in-chief of Retail TouchPoints. "We congratulate Edward Rennemann and Crate and Barrel for putting these concepts into practice and for being an advocate for transformative technology use and approach."
"We're thrilled that Ed Rennemann of Crate and Barrel is being recognized for adopting Dayforce HCM technology as part of the organization's business strategy," says David Ossip, CEO of Ceridian HCM. "To see a best-in-class retailer like Crate and Barrel transform in operations and service is powerful."
Retail Innovator Award winners were honored at a luncheon ceremony on Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at the Yale Club in New York.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
