This Week at Datacrushers: March 2018 Mid-Month Update!

It’s the middle of March Madness– have you filled out your NCAA tournament bracket yet? Wait – is collegiate basketball, not your thing? Ok, basketball puns aside, let’s look at some of the exciting developments to happen thus far in March:

  • Interesting: The $2 Billion voice-shopping market (made up of voice-activated home assistants such as Alexa) will be worth $40 Billion by 2022. That is according to the results of a survey conducted by OC&C.
  • Unfortunate: Toy’s “R” Us has announced that they are going to close all their U.S. retail locations. With the advent of eCommerce, the iconic toy retailer gradually lost a substantial amount of their market share as their physical retail stores struggled to make a profit.
  • Wonderful: Paul Fu, senior director of user experience at Alibaba, recently said that the “Future of eCommerce will be more personalized” while giving a talk at the annual SXSW event. The statement is self-explanatory, and it is one Datacrushers is 100% in agreement with. Fun fact: shoppers in China spent over $25 billion dollars during Alibaba’s ‘Singles Day’ sale (11:11) on November 11th, 2018. It gets better: 90% of those transactions were performed on smartphones and tablets.

Now that those points are out of the way – what is happening at Datacrushers? Where are things headed?
