The Retail Hive Technology Leaders

8th February 2024

This invitation-only meeting is strictly limited to just 40 – CIOs and CTOs, Heads of Technology, Architecture, Systems –  from Europe’s largest retailers with the most complex architecture.

Discussion topics will focus around:

  • Smart Tech Architecture for Omnichannel Integration
  • Datafication
  • Tech Modernisation
  • Composable Tech Operating for the Future
  • Going MACH
  • Applications of AI
  • Culture & Transformation
  • Hype or Hyperscale?
  • Cyber Security Considerations

Unlocking the potential of next generation retail technology to accelerate your tech transformation journey, and continuously evolve to meet customer needs.

At a time when consumers are demanding greater flexibility, customisation, & responsiveness, many retailers lack the tech foundation to meet these expectations.  Is the answer a comprehensive overhaul of the tech architecture and operating model? 

If you are saddled with legacy, how do you modernise? Where can you make an impact (immediately & in the future) with the decisions you make as a tech leader, & the strategy & investment you direct? Time is of the essence, so how can you take the necessary steps to expedite the transformation? What are others doing and what insights can they share into strategy & systems? Who are the solution providers that you need to explore?

The role of a technology leader in a retail business is not easy…

Every retailer and brand at this meeting is under pressure to keep pace with the evolution of customer demands. You are all making high profile, impactful decisions and you want to do it with confidence and direction. You have a lot to learn from each other beside the solidarity of a group of technology leaders “all in the same boat”. This member meeting will allow you to exchange experience with genuine peers, build productive relationships, and make informed decisions that will impact throughout the business and tech organisation, and also on the bottom line.

Interactive program including benchmarking, exchanging insights on tech strategy, sharing feedback on solutions, exploring evolving models, understanding how to provide your business with quick wins
