"Retail is entering a new era, the Renaissance of the Store," said Greg Girard, Program Director at IDC Retail Insights.

Instrumenting stores with video and other advanced analytics is emerging as a key capability for making this happen. Store analytics will soon be seen as the omni-channel complement to web analytics for customer-centric merchandising, customer service, and operations in stores."
