Chicago – June 5-8, 2012
In June we attended The Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE) which is the largest e-commerce event in the world. Over 9,000 e-commerce industry members were expected to attend. A 23% increase over the previous year. The theme was “Connecting With the 21st Century Consumer”. We met with many of the companies of the 550 exhibitors to discuss their challenges in developing e-commerce web applications, databases, mobile apps and mobile websites. There were many companies talking about how they were integrating social networking, location-based services and mobile apps to further grow the e-commerce industry. Their focus is to “personalize” the shopping experience. The industry is strong and continues to grow and we look forward to working with this industry to serve their software QA needs.
