Symphony RetailAI Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In June 2021, Symphony RetailAI named Cheryl Sullivan to the newly created position of Chief Product Officer. Under Sullivan’s leadership, the company will combine its product management and marketing teams, as she works to develop an integrated product and marketing strategy across the organization.
In May 2019, Symphony RetailAI made a global strategic alliance with Zebra Technologies, an innovator at the edge of the enterprise with solutions that enable businesses to gain a performance edge. The goal is to offer retailers, manufacturers, and logistics firms a complete solution to increase operational warehouse and back-office productivity.
Symphony RetailAI Risks and Challenges
In January 2020, Symphony RetailAI appointed Chris Koziol as CEO and a member of the company’s board of directors. Dr. Pallab Chatterjee, who previously served as CEO, has retired after a long career in technology, including several years at Symphony Technology Group.
Symphony EYC is taking the vertically integrated concept further by delivering an extended product portfolio to customers in retail, distribution and other verticals. The issue is whether the approach is going to resonate with the target audience primarily in the retail vertical. Another question has to do with its owner Symphony's grand vision for some of its recently acquired assets and if it will combine them to drive the economy of scale.
Meanwhile, Symphony EYC has embarked on a new initiative combining Big Data analytics with its software that presumably is going to run on the Exadata platform from Oracle. Though these experiments have not set the retail vertical on fire, it's just a matter of time before these ingredients trigger the combustion needed to get the company moving again.
