Why it's Time For A Next Generation Store Network Architecture

HughesON | 1/19/2015 11:48:01 AM

Shoppers expect to use the digital domain to inform their purchase decisions anytime and anywhere, even when they intend to complete their shopping experience in the store. And when they get to the store, they expect store employees to have that information at their fingertips too, in order to serve them better. To support consumers’ omni-channel shopping behaviors, product information, inventory availability, and customer profile and order information must be current and available throughout the enterprise to enable real time visibility anytime and anywhere.

New demands for a harmonized shopping experience put tremendous pressure on the stores, which for the past generation have been designed around customer self-service. But retailers are realizing that "no store is an island", and that success will be driven by digital enablement from now on. That requires a network and a new generation of network-centric information systems that enable access to rich information – accurately and in real-time.

Risk to Consumers, Public Safety and National Security

Neustar | 1/16/2015 9:52:32 AM

Critical telecommunications database could be transitioned under FCC process

Everybody from consumers, to emergency response, law enforcement and national security agencies, to state regulators, to carriers themselves rely on a routing database established as a result of the Telecom Act of 1996. This database, called the Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC), is a critical part of our national infrastructure.

A poorly planned transition of the data and technology in the NPAC could result in the service failing, consumers not being able to keep their phone numbers when they change service providers, and service providers not able to compete on a level playing field.

This Strategic Solutions Series examines some of the specific concerns with the NPAC vendor selection process and what the potential transition has to do with neutrality, transparency, cost, transition, and timeline.
