SPECIALIZED MICROSOFT WORKSHOP: Omnichannel Retail Technology: from vision to reality


Visionaries say that technology will fundamentally change entire industries. Data will link suppliers and retailers, will be a support for unprecedented customer experience. The frictional flats between customers and retailers will be so smooth that they will not be noticeable any more. But the reality is completely different – the revolution is rather an evolution, and each two steps forward are also two steps back. During the workshop, you will be able to get acquainted with the specific technologies – drivers of the Future Microsoft store concept that you can start using in the next 14 days.
