The retail sector has undergone a massive transition to online platforms with companies investing billions into the cloud and data analytics to improve their eCommerce performance.

Businesses such as N Brown and Littlewoods have moved from catalogue operations to pureplay online retail. The fast fashion sector has exploded, with the likes of boohoo and Missguided posting incredible growth figures.

Meanwhile it has never been easier to start up an online store thanks to a range of start-ups who provide the building blocks for fledgling entrepreneurs.
