    Terrific post, really enjoyed how you used humour to set the tone for this. I can tell you are actually a creative writer on this piece. Cloud SaaS is all about scaling, being seamless and doing more for cheaper. I’m convinced, the real gold for retail, restaurants and hospitality will come from the API integrations (sometimes called “Add-ons”) that these POS vendors are partnered with. In fact, I think they will be disruptive.

    Retail technology is heading to AI, embedded analytics and machine-learning that can offer new customer experiences via predictive analytics. Cloud integration of small businsses will enable more people to become retail entrepreneurs, for example, and have new ways to generate ROI and optimize digital touch points with the everyday and (younger) consumer.
