As we prepare for “retail’s big show,” next week’s National Retail Federation’s (NRF’s) Annual Convention & EXPO in New York City, we are sitting down with our intelligent systems partners and listening to their thoughts on the challenges faced by retailers—and how intelligent systems built on Microsoft technology can assist. I recently spoke with Sweeni Ponoth at Symphony Analytics, a division of Symphony Teleca, one of our new intelligent system partners, about how big data delivers new marketing options.
Ponoth, who is global practice leader of retail and brands, noted that a major challenge for retailers is the limited time they have to connect with each customer. “Retailers today have about three seconds to inspire a customer,” Ponoth says. “They need to literally provide on-demand marketing.” Symphony Analytics offers predictive analytics based solutions to give retailers new options for engaging the shopper within that three-second window.

The past twelve months have been some of our busiest yet here at Windows Embedded. As we make plans for the year ahead, we reflect on the tremendous changes of 2013.
The year just passing was one of marked momentum for our industry—especially in the public discourse. Seems everywhere you looked in 2013, stories about the Internet of Things (the IoT)—its vast promise for revolutionizing industry, potential pitfalls, and even a few wild-eyed predictions—garnered significant ink. From mainstream business publications, such as BusinessWorld and Forbes, to industry magazines such as Manufacturing.net, Telecom Engine and Fierce Mobile IT, the Iot and its real-life application counterpart, machine-to-machine learning (M2M), are taking top billing in everyone’s “top trends” predictions for 2014. Over the past year, my colleague Kevin Dallas has been remarking on the growing interest in the topic, from a discussion about the imperative for businesses to embrace the technology, to the greater implications of the IoT’s impact on sectors of the U.S. economy.
