Interesting article and statistics from RetailNext provided by MultichannelMerchant. I particularly liked this question or rather the answers. inRiver is on the right track.

To establish which major technology trends are most on retailers' minds, RetailNext asked "What do you think are the most important technology trends affecting retail in the next 5 years?" The top-two responses ranked as:
  • Omnichannel:  62%
  • In-store mobile POS:  48%
  • Big Data:  43%
  • Mobile commerce:  29%
  • Showrooming:  19%
