The Growth of Mobile Commerce
Over the last decade, consumers' shopping preferences have changed drastically with the continued adoption of mobile across the retail industry. Mobile commerce will soon eclipse desktop sales and become the primary screen for driving conversions in the United States, with mobile retail sales expected to top$400 billion within the next three years. An increased shift to mobile is further evidenced in the results from Ibotta's 2018 Mobile Commerce Survey, which found that 47 percent of respondents are shopping in-store retail locations less today than they did five years ago.

"Mobile has changed every aspect of the shopping experience. From the way consumers shop, to the way they research purchases and make decisions about what to buy and even how they engage with the brands they love," said Bryan Leach, Founder and CEO of Ibotta. "Everyone's shopping behavior is different and unique to them, and brands cannot expect customer loyalty with a one-size-fits-all approach. The goal of Ibotta's inaugural Mobile Commerce Report is to highlight the shift in mobile shopping behavior while providing insight into the best ways to attract and retain loyal customers."

What the Mobile Shift Means for Retailers
As the consumer journey continues to evolve and mobile becomes an even bigger part of shoppers' lives, smart retailers must shift their focus to mobile and deliver more personalized offerings with a clear value proposition to obtain new customers and increase incremental sales. These tactics will help retailers deliver the most valued shoppers to their business.

"Every shopper wants a good deal, but more importantly, they want to be rewarded for their loyalty," Leach said. "Brands and retailers that are able to deliver more tailored and rewarded shopping experiences on mobile will best position themselves to be successful in this new era of retail."

Implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI) for Kubernetes delivers persistent storage for compute running in Kubernetes-managed containers. This future-proofs Kubernetes+Storage deployments. Unlike the Kubernetes Flexvol-based volume plugin, storage is no longer tightly coupled or dependent on Kubernetes releases.
