EUC2130 – Solving the Problems of the Modern Retailer Through Virtualization
Retailers are being challenged to compete for the attention of the modern retailer. The consumeration of technology has forced retailers to change how they do business both online and inside their stores. The modern consumer has access to instantaneous information about retailers, products and other consumers’ experiences. Retailers are being forced to provide more detailed information targeted directly at the individual consumer to increase loyalty. Delivering the personalized customer experience that consumers want, is forcing retailers to overhaul legacy infrastructues to deliver new technologies faster to the stores. Learn how a large retailer in the US uses a flexible, virtualized platform to deliver applications and solutions to thousands of branch locations. See how they use VMware technologies such as vSphere, View and Thinapp to ease the deployment of in-store applications and solutions from POS to digital signage. Learn how they plan to use virtual solutions to reduce support costs for 300,000 endpoints in the stores.
