SAP Retail has been a leader in the conversation around digital innovation and how it is impacting the overall retail shopping experience. We invite you to join us January 15-17, 2017 for The National Retail Federation’s (NRF) “Big Show” in NYC as we continue the conversation about the new roles technology will play in omnichannel shopping experiences, from how we make purchasing decisions to how retailers can create a seamless customer journey.

This is an opportunity to learn, share, and discuss the future of retail through several interactive sessions with some of the biggest names in the industry, including (but certainly not limited to):

Coach, Inc. and SAP Ariba: Transforming Global Procurement in America’s Original House of Leather  – Monday, January 16 10:00am at the SAP Booth #1921

  • Coach, Inc. is a designer of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle collections and a global leader in premium handbags and accessories. With over 1,000 retail locations on five continents, Coach recently sought to optimize its internal non-merchandise procurement function – including policy, processes, and systems. James McDonald, senior director of global procurement operations at Coach, will share the company's SAP Ariba implementation journey and highlight plans for the future, including the deployment of the SAP Fashion Management application and the SAP Best Practices for Ariba Procure-to-Pay package.

Metrics on the Move: Putting Live Insight into the Hands of the ALDO Group's Sales Organization – Sunday, January 15 11:00am at the SAP Booth #1921

  • Learn how ALDO used the SAP BusinessObjects Roambi mobile application to move from “traditional reporting” to making key business metrics available immediately to those who need them in near real time, giving the organization an “always-current” view of business performance, and allowing employees to make better, data-driven decisions.

Discount Tire Company (DTC) and the Internet of Things Journey – Sunday, January 15 10:30am at the SAP Booth #1921

  • Discount Tire Company operates 925 tire stores in the US, each location containing a multitude of equipment, from compressors to HVAC, car lifts to tire-changers and tire-balancers. This session will show how DTC is thinking about their early-stage approach to Enterprise Asset Management, and their intended use of IoT technology to assign a voice to the critical machinery found in each store. Come away with an understanding of DTC’s time-line, process, and the key value-drivers for this project that has impact on numerous business segments (e.g., Retail Operations, Finance, Omni-channel, Technical, etc.) across the DTC enterprise.
