Welcome back all! We’ve all returned (and hopefully recovered by now) from another invigorating and inspiring NRF show, but now what?

Before you get back to work and start planning NRF 2015 (kidding, but not really), we’ll leave you with a few words of wisdom to mull over from the Gartner analysts at this year’s show:

“Optimization efforts are usually done in silos, but the problem is that all benefits are not being fully realized because some efforts cancel each other out and the balance sheet blows up. Optimization efforts need to be managed holistically to achieve real benefits.”
— Kevin Sterneckert, Gartner, NRF 2014

“I don’t use the word omnichannel retail. If you have to call it something, maybe channel agnostic is best.” — Jeff Roster, Gartner, NRF 2014

“I have never understood why we call a store a non-digital channel, because there is quite a lot of digital technology in a store.” — John Davison, Gartner, NRF 2014

And with that, we’d like to extend our thanks to you for helping make this year’s NRF an exciting and successful one. See you at NRF 2015!
