Retail, at its core, is about the relationship between an organization’s brand and customers - creating fans who are loyal with an engaging experience for shoppers, efficiently ensuring products are in the right place at the right time, and providing team members with the tools to execute at a high level. But in a world where change appears to be the only constant, retailers are always operating in a state of catch up.

Flexibility and choice are the new expectation from consumers, which has a major impact on retailers' bottom lines. Compounding these consumer-led changes has been the recent volatility – in supply chains, markets, and consumer behavior – which is an expected new norm for years to come.

But volatility doesn’t have to be a scary word. Retailers of all sizes and industries are turning to data and AI to meet changing consumer demands and tackle the biggest operational hurdles. Retailers today are using data, AI and analytics with a lakehouse architecture to power growth:

  • combining data sources and types to create a single source of truth that can drive personalization initiatives
  • delivering deep visibility and collaboration across the supply chain to optimize operations
  • empowering employees across the organization with real time insights for fast, accurate decision making

Databricks’s mission is to empower people and organizations to do more with Data and AI. For Retail, this means gaining deep insight into your customers, your supply chain, your store operations, to determine in real time how to optimize the business. The biggest way to unlock this is to un-silo data from a wealth of different sources and organizations.

That’s why we’re excited to announce that Databricks will be at NRF 2023!

NRF brings together 37,000 retail professionals and vendors from more than 90 countries to share big ideas in retail. We invite you to join us and learn how data and AI are transforming the industry.
