Transforming IT for retail branches and stores

Reduce cost and risk while providing a platform for innovation

In the highly competitive retail environment, margins are thin and many enterprises struggle to balance the need to invest in the enabling technologies of tomorrow, while keeping costs and risk under control.

ProLiant Easy Connect provides an innovative in-store IT platform to support the shopping experiences of tomorrow, whether that be omni-channel, IoT, Smart Shelf, analytics, or others. And because Easy Connect servers are designed to be rolled-out ‘cookie cutter style’ with simple provisioning, complete consistency and central management, shopping is less prone to interruption caused by downtime.  So costs are lower while customer experience and revenue is less at risk.
