COVID-19 Pandemic to Spur E-Commerce Businesses

The COVID-19 outbreak has forced people to switch to online buying of everyday items and this has brought good news for various companies operating in the e-commerce domain. For example, a survey report published by CNN revealed that in March 2020 grocery shopping platforms experienced a 41% spike in the demand for their services in the US. Furthermore, the pandemic has created an investment opportunity for companies to strengthen their cloud systems by bolstering their capabilities through the incorporation of AI, ML, and blockchain. These technologies are known to enhance data collection and analysis capacity, enable pinpointed advertisement placement, and optimize transaction costs and other business processes. More importantly, these systems enable superior data security and elevate the efficiency of supply chain management. Given the sudden spike in online retailing and shopping around the world resulting from nationwide lockdowns and social distancing rules, it would be prescient for businesses to take their services and solutions to the cloud.
