The integration of digital technology in all spheres of business have fundamentally changed how businesses operate and deliver value to their target audience. The retail industry is undergoing tremendous change amidst this digital transformation. Increasing ecommerce penetration and the continued strengthening of ecommerce brands like Amazon, Flipkart, Zomato, etc., proliferation of brand direct-to-consumer strategies and new business models, demographic shifts and renewed spending priorities, highly informed and empowered consumers, rapidly evolving technologies, and massive restructuring of major legacy channel segments, to name a few, are creating major disruption.

Achieving top- and bottom-line growth is a challenge for many, and for some, long-term viability is in question. Today, retailers need to objectively evaluate their roles and value propositions and prioritize the strategies ― both refinements and bold moves ― required to win in the future.
