study by UPS and comScore found that 53% of shoppers who don’t use
retailers’ mobile apps state it’s because they like using the website better.
These shoppers see no benefit from installing these apps, as they provide
an inferior experience with no added benefits. Looking at the Apple and
Google Play App Stores, a large amount of retailers have apps with very
few reviews, and some don’t even have a mobile app.
Another problem is the performance of retail apps. 61% consumers expect
an app to load in under 4 seconds according to research by Dynatrace. In
its study, only one retailer made it under that threshold.
And that is just purely opening the app. What is the
experience once consumers get past that point?

The battleground for customers has shifted to the digital world, and retail banks must adapt quickly as crafty Fintech startups and tech giants like Amazon, Apple, and Google continue to push the limits of what is possible with technology.
If digital channels aren’t approached correctly, they can add complexity to the customer experience in

Compiling a cloud services comparison is a daunting task in the rapidlyevolving cloud environment. There are thousands of cloud services,
dozens of cloud service providers, and numerous Infrastructure-as-aService (IaaS) providers offering pay-as-you-go pricing models—each one
frequently changing and upgrading their portfolios.
We have chosen to limit our cloud services comparison to the top three
IaaS providers providing service in the Western Hemisphere—Amazon
Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform
(GCP)—because, not only are these the IaaS providers most organizations
are familiar with, they are also the IaaS providers whose services most
organizations are likely to compare.
This eBook provides an introduction to the range of services offered by
the leading cloud service providers, information on regions and availability
zones, a breakdown of cloud storage services, and more, to help inform
you on your multicloud journey.
