From offering flexible services to creating solution-oriented products and delivering specialized campaigns, machine learning, analytics and other technologies are empowering consumer brands and retailers to understand their shoppers better and deliver differentiated, one-to-one experiences across all shopping experiences – in online shopping, physical stores, social commerce . By seamlessly connecting their people, systems and operations in new ways, businesses are not only more responsive to the evolving expectations of their customers, but are also more resilient in the face of change. Data-led intelligence and digital technology are essential to stay connected, secure and productive in today’s newly formed landscape.
