Today, the ‘need for speed’ in Data and Analytic capabilities for Consumer Goods, spanning retailing, manufacturing and distribution,  is more important than ever. The demand to drive  top line revenue, improve operational efficiencies and effectively differentiate in today’s crowded marketplace has only increased in an era of COVID-19

Without real-time data analysis capabilities, personalised relevant customer engagement is simply not possible.  Without real-time data ingestion and intelligent alerts to ensure workforce and consumer safety, it can not be current enough to offer real protection.  And, without real-time inventory geo-location information across the entire supply chain - visibility will never truly be a ‘glass pipeline’.

Yet, the reality is that many legacy systems, point solutions and ‘spaghetti’ data sources still exist across retail, manufacturing, wholesale and distribution companies – making an enterprise ‘fast data’ solution seemingly impossible.

During this webinar, the  team will share real customer stories, use cases and how to build  “Faster Data, Better Outcomes in Retail & Consumer Goods” including:

  • Industry use cases dependent upon ‘fast’ data and why it has become a business imperative
  • Business implications of COVID-19 over the next 6-months
  • How Cloudera’s Data Flow (CDF)  solutions can help overcome the challenges of ‘fast’ data in integration, processing, streaming analytics,  regardless of your legacy systems
  • Practical advice from a leading expert in innovative open source ‘fast data’ solutions

Please join us to hear the latest industry trends, use cases and practical insights into why CDF is the leading solution for ‘fast data’ in Retail & Consumer Goods.
