hash.era I think you are right. Yes technology driven. Social network just complement and is not really a push factor.

I agree that the line between e-commerce and brick & mortar will continue to blur and start to dissappear this year. While an excellent corporate strategy, supply chains are going to be pushed to innovate and support customer demand. Flexibilty and quick reactions will be much better than long-term planning. Retailers may need to stop working 12 months out and instead be able to quickly adapt to trending opportunities.

I read an article about the company Argos in the UK which is going through a major transition to embrace the trend of shoppers who demand internet pricing with the immediacy of store based supply.  The article reflects many of the tenets mentioned in your blog.

Yeah it's pretty clear from the predictions supply chain will be more technology-driven (and perhaps social network driven?).

Prediction 8 is a great one. You do need to keep things updated and tight when it comes for technology play. Keep some space in the budget for technology improvements which will be needed.
