    Getting ready for a peak period, whether it’s the holidays, summer tourism, or a far-reaching marketing campaign, involves evaluating both your infrastructure and code to optimize for best results.

    Most retailers are familiar with the holiday rush. In brick and mortars, it’s the time of year when more hiring happens to ensure smiling faces in the store to help eager customers and enough cashiers at the registers for fast, stress-free checkout. For an ecommerce retailer, beefing up for peak traffic is less about hiring more bodies and more about tuning up the systems and processes that bring, keep, and allow customers to fluidly make transactions on a site.

    Lags in page load not only frustrate users, but Google's search algorithms now also penalize sites for slow loads. Shop.org, The National Retail Federation’s digital division, expects online sales to grow between 9% and 12% in 2013, further increasing the need for a well-planned ecommerce strategy, both on the customer-facing side and in your underlying infrastructure. To add urgency, the 2013 holiday shopping season is almost a week shorter than 2012. Retailers will only have 26 days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, compared with 32 days in 2012, which makes driving sales during the shortened season even more pressing.

    Getting ready for a peak period, whether it’s the holidays, summer tourism, or a far-reaching marketing campaign, involves evaluating both your infrastructure and code to optimize for best results. The cornerstone of peak traffic planning is rigorously load testing your system ahead of time to identify and correct breakpoints and bottlenecks.

    The benchmark study includes an in-depth look at how best-in-class retailers use analytics, as well as a review of business analytics software vendors. The authors surveyed senior retail executives and collected secondary research from public and proprietary sources.

    One of the key themes of the study is the extent to which retailers can use analytics insights to drive strategic decisions. Findings reveal that in a time of unprecedented change in retail, brick-and-mortar retail stores must look to omnichannel customer engagement to gain deeper consumer insight. Key findings include:

    -       Retailers' analytics maturity is low. The survey found that 40% of retailers believe they lag behind their competitors in terms of analytics maturity, 40% think they are only at par.

    -       Data management and integration will be a key area of investment. In an effort to increase analytical maturity, retailers will invest in contextual, visual and mobile-friendly delivery of insights.

    -       Retailers' e-commerce/omnichannel function has the highest potential to use analytics strategically.

    -       Usability and access are critical.
