Tier-one retailers recognize that loyal customers are their most valuable assets. To improve the customer experience at every interaction, they are sharing real-time data about customers, sales, and inventory between data centers and retail outlets. When they handle sensitive customer information, though, they need uncompromising security to preserve customer goodwill and protect their reputation.
Retailers who accept credit cards know that a highly secure application-delivery infrastructure is a top priority. But the most sophisticated retailers look at application delivery proactively, not just protectively. They offer personalized incentive and reward programs and they tighten the customer-service links between their website and brick-and-mortar locations, making insight from business intelligence applications available at the store level.
