Hosted by IBM's Jenny Galitz McTighe, the new IBM podcast features Robert Garf, vice president and general manager of retail strategies at AMR Research, and Fred Balboni, global retail industry leader for IBM's Global Business Services. "The Future of Shopping" conversation focuses on how retailers are evolving their business models to better connect with today's sophisticated, informed, tech savvy consumers.

A recent IBM study revealed only 20 percent of consumers are loyal to their primary retailer.

Innovations such as endless aisles and mobile checkout will help create an enhanced shopping experience that will drive customer advocacy.
