Enabling “New Retail” and Business Innovation

Yonghui Superstores

To drive retail transformation, Younghui Superstores created a “new retail” strategy and needed to verify if the strategy could meet current as well as future business needs. Using Gartner research and expert advisors, our client was able to strategically validate the new strategy and create a more flexible IT infrastructure in line with the business goals.

Mission-critical priority

As “new retail” was still an emerging concept, our client needed help to verify if their strategy could keep up with the market shifts.

How Gartner helped

Gartner research, experts and Hype Cycle reports provided guidance to our client on strategy, technology, market trends and cloud infrastructure deployment.  

Additionally, Gartner cross-industry CIO seminars and CIO conferences provided opportunities for peer best-practice sharing and insight into the application of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain in the retail industry.

Business impact

With Gartner for IT Leaders, the client:

  • Created a flexible IT infrastructure in line with business goals. 

  • Enabled the company to stay ahead of market shifts.  

  • Prepared the company for future innovation and growth.
