Matrix Commerce is much more than focusing on retail, but takes a holistic view of both B2B as well as B2C movement of goods and services. The focus is on the touch points between the consumer, whether the individual at the B2C level, or entities at the B2B level and the commerce supply chain. Digital disruption has impacted this dynamic at these intersection points. Matrix Commerce will focus on this touch points and explore how service providers are working on addressing friction points that slows down the flow.

The future of commerce will be determined by the Internet of Things. Data, humans, and devices are now connected in ways previously unimaginable, and the result of these connections will create a tectonic shift in retail, supply chains, and commerce.
