GeographyWorldwide or by Region

Retail and hospitality industries are in a massive overhaul of retail systems as they merge eCommerce, mobile, and catalog channels with the store.  Whether it’s central order management, data visualization and predictive analytics, beacons, or core merchandising and POS systems, WorldView tracks and forecasts this spend.

Although there are studies that track certain components or “hot” technologies that are released each year, there has yet to be a comprehensive model that tracks IT Spending by line of business category, by segment, and by region of the world until now. With Retail WorldView forecasts on over 300 categories of hardware, software, SaaS, services, and labor/overhead, IHL has developed the most comprehensive IT sizing model in the retail industry.

Includes forecasts and growth rate for cloud solutions as well as sizing for mobile, EMV, Omnichannel and Big Data tools as well as traditional retail technology components.

Don’t base your forecasts only on internal projections! Get outside objective numbers.

The IT sizing is calculated in US Dollars for the following regions.

North America (US and Canada)
Latin and South America (including Mexico and Caribbean)
Europe/Middle East/Africa
Asia/Pacific

IHL Group License and Fair Use Agreement

All of IHL Group’s generally available research are electronic licenses and can be shared freely within the purchasing organization and wholly owned subsidiaries. We only ask that this information not be shared with partners or others outside the purchasing company without authorization from IHL Group. The license does not extend to joint ventures or other partnerships. If the relationship is not a wholly-owned subsidiary, then both parties would need a license.

Practically, this implies the following:

  1. The purchasing company can use the data and research worldwide internally as long as the international organizations are wholly owned subsidiaries of the purchasing company.
  2. The data or any research cannot be distributed in whole or in part to partners or customers without express written approval from IHL Group.
  3. The purchasing company may quote components of the data (limited use) in presentations to customers such as specific charts. This is limited to percentage components, not individual unit information. Unit data cannot be shared externally without express written approval from IHL Group. All references to the data in presentations should include credit to IHL Group for the data.
  4. The purchasing company can reference qualitative quotes in printed material with written approval from IHL Group.
  5. All requests requiring written approval should be submitted to ihl(at)ihlservices.com and will be reviewed within one business day.

For any questions regarding this policy, please contact us at 1-888-IHL-6777 (North America) +1.615.591.2955 (International) or email us at ihl(at)ihlservices.com.
