Just about a year ago, I penned a guest posting on the Infosys Supply Chain Management blog that commented on the pending 2010 holiday buying season and how consumers would test retailer multi-channel operations (MCO) and synchronization.

As retailers now launch into the 2011 holiday buying season, the environment for both consumers buying strategies and the continuity of supply for in-demand items have changed and will require retailers to place a more diligent emphasis on both MCO and responsive supply chain inventory management.
