The holiday season is second to none for retailers—and 2019 is
shaping up to be promising. According to
Deloitte’s latest holiday retail forecast, this
season’s sales are projected to top $1.1 trillion, with e-commerce sales expected to grow 14 to 18 percent, up from
11.2 percent in 20181. Competition amongst retailers is fierce. Consumers
today expect convenience, seamless transactions, rapid delivery, attractive
pricing and great customer service. To keep pace with these demands, retailers
are investing in technology that boosts efficiency, improves engagement and differentiates
the customer experience. With these
advancements, comes the increased reliance on network performance. This is
where we come in.
