Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience.
Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers
now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel
implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered
consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now
being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across
mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end
infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty
programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many
aspects of store and enterprise operations.
An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in
evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ

Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support
providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.

In order to succeed, modern web experiences must seem simple to end-users, even though most ultimately require complex design and technology to deliver.
