Refine Retail Business Opportunities with Customer Data and Advantech Azure Cloud Services
As data supports the formation of accurate business decisions, it is argued to be the oil of the 21st century. Coretronic Group, the world's largest designer and manufacturer of DLP projectors and backlight modules, began developing cloud services and display technology integration solutions in 2012. In 2017, the Coretronic Intelligent Cloud Service (CiCS) was formally established to focus on AI, big data, and cloud technology applications. CiCS integrates the group's innovative display technology to transform the group from a hardware manufacturer and designer to a solutions provider that develops and implements digital transformation strategies. As a Microsoft Azure distributor experienced in cloud services and digital transformation, Advantech works with CiCS to launch smart retail solutions that drive business model innovation by utilizing data to improve sales and consumer satisfaction.
