Pioneers of new business models, such as Alibaba and Amazon, are launching innovations in rapid succession, such as voice ordering and real-time pricing, whilst also building scale and driving down costs. But they've still not got it totally right and need to continue to evolve to win.

More retail purchases are moving online, and a growing number of manufacturers now sell to consumers directly, cutting out retailers and marketplaces entirely. These shifts are happening across almost every retail category - books, entertainment, housewares, clothing, food, financial services, even energy.

Retail businesses need to become channel agnostic and place their relationship with their customers at the heart of their business models. To do this they need to break down silos, build new capabilities, and create the right digital infrastructure to support this.

The retailers left standing are those that figure out how to treat disruption as business-as-usual in an industry accustomed to slow, strategic planning. Today, even heritage retailers are starting to set and deliver selling strategies at the nearly real-time pace set by their online competitors. It's either adapt to the new environment or step aside and make room for a competitor who can. And for those more innovative companies it is about trying new things, failing fast and winning big to remain relevant.

Depending on the layout of the house and the wishes of the customer to the design can be used marching, slanting, screw, combined and other types of glass stairs. Floating is a relatively simple type of stairs straight or curved designs, the essential element of which is the presence of the inclined series of steps and connecting them stairs (respectively rectangular or semicircular shape). The most common type of stairway has a slope of 30-45°. In such a ladder, the biomechanics of a person who moves up or down it is taken into account as much as possible. The advantage of the design of the flight stairs-the maximum strength with a minimum number of connections. For attaching stairs to the Bolza is used the same type of hinged plates boltov that is a metal fastener, which is used for sequential mounting steps. Stairs can be straight or winder. This type of ladder design allows you to make the mount almost invisible in connection with what has gained great popularity among designers. But, despite the "visual lightness", these stairs are able to withstand heavy loads, in particular, in cases where the design of the stairs is enhanced by a combination with a braid, bowstring or wall mount. In terms of design and construction, the combined staircases are characterized by a free spatial configuration, in which the elements of the staircases are combined with various spiral (screw) structures. Most modular and small stairs are also combined. Combined glass stairs-a vivid example of architectural construction in the style of "eclecticism" - the direction in which an arbitrary combination of styles, designs and materials is used. They are original engineering and artistic solutions. To perform such complex work requires the joint work of the architect and designer and, of course, a high level of professionalism of the installation team
