Enables retailers and CPGs to drive customer insights into marketing, merchandising and supply chain decisions

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/12/17 -- Symphony Retail Solutions, a leading provider of software and services for retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers, today announced Symphony Retail Cloud (SRC), the first end-to-end, customer-centric solution for retailers and manufacturers delivered in the convenience of the Cloud, will be launched at the NRF Big Show 2017 in New York. SRC provides retailers and manufacturers with best-in-class supplier collaboration and monetization and speed of delivery of customer-centric retailing, and will be on show at Booth #1835.

The intelligent, role-based suite of solutions is designed to facilitate collaboration and optimize operations with specific workflows and tools for four key retail and CPG functions. For retail, these include: Marketing Manager's Suite, Category Manager's Suite, Store Management Suite, and Supply Chain Manager's Suite. For CPGs, it includes: Supplier Collaboration Suite, Shopper Marketing Suite, Consumer & Brand Insights, and Cross-Media Insights.

Symphony Retail Cloud combines the power of Symphony EYC's customer-centric insights; Symphony GOLD's retail planning, optimization and execution capabilities; and Simmons' cross-channel consumer research and real-time cross-media measurement. It enables retailers and manufacturers to deliver more than two percent same-store revenue growth by driving customer insights into marketing, merchandising and supply chain decisions.

With the ability to deliver frequent updates, SRC offers a flexible and nimble operating environment that:

Combines cutting edge technology with consumer insight to enable retailers and CPGs to enhance planning and collaboration, and therefore optimize retail strategies, tactics and execution.

Optimizes customer-driven decisions for assortments, store and category space, prices, promotions, inventory and fulfillment.

Drives same-store revenue growth by as much as 2 percent.

"Today's Retail Winners understand the strategic value of information, delivered at the right moment to the right person in the right way. That's what cloud-based solutions enable," said Brian Kilcourse, managing partner, RSR Research.

"Fundamental changes in consumer spending and behavior are changing the way retailers and consumer goods companies conduct business. At the same time, technology is evolving, brand loyalty is declining, and demographics are changing along with consumer preferences and economic uncertainty," said Pallab Chatterjee, Chairman, Symphony Retail Solutions. "Symphony Retail Cloud is meeting these challenges with a single, cloud-based offering that brings together customer insights to drive marketing, merchandising, supply chain and store operational decisions."

"Getting onto cloud will help us in two different ways. Number one, deliver value to the business very quickly ... within 90 days we can be ready to deliver and roll out. That's phenomenal," said Ram Marupudi, Senior Solutions Architect, Southeastern Grocers. "And the second thing is being agile and feeling more confident to try new approaches knowing the risk is less."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
