Retail at speed: From founding to the future of technical standards

Now more than ever, the retail industry must be built for speed.

In the past, a brilliant strategy enabled success and growth. But as we’ve evolved into a digital economy, the key to success is being able to constantly change strategy. You can only effectively do this by understanding your values and capabilities. Business Architecture is the method to wrap your arms around your business and connect strategy to execution.

When coupled with time proven technology standards you can lower costs, ensure interoperability, and enable superior time-to-value and speed-to-market.

The Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the National Retail Federation (NRF) entered into a long-term agreement to manage and develop the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS).

In association with OMG, Thematix is hosting a free 60-minute webinar featuring two of the early movers and shakers — Horace Clemmons and Richard Mader — who will share the history of development and the enduring value to the retail Industry.

They will be joined by Andy Mattice, co-Chair of the Retail Domain Task Force at OMG, who will talk about the current status of development and some of the initiatives the future may hold.

We'll close with a brief description of how these standards connect with Business Architecture to help ensure success, then open the discussion with a Q&A session.

DATE: September 24, 2019
TIME: 12n EDT/11am CDT/9am PDT
