Speaking at the launch of the report, Praveen Bhadada, Partner & Practice Head, Digital Transformation, Zinnov, said, "Over the last 18 months, retail has emerged as one of the top industries in terms of digital investments.

These investments are targeted at three broad categories - e-commerce-led new revenues, high customer experiences across all engagement channels, and intelligent operations to ensure optimizations at all levels. On an average, large retailers globally are working with at least 25 new age digital start-ups & ISVs to deliver on these use cases."

Further, elaborating on the huge outsourcing opportunity, he said, "While the $23Bn outsourcing opportunity is huge, Service Providers who are placing bets on 'Outcome Economy and Customer value' are the ones who are going to lead in the long term. Capabilities in digital infrastructure, IoT, AI & data management, Retail-specific IPs & solutions as well as differentiated engagement models are becoming table stakes to win the market."
