Let’s just get to the core of the issue: The customer experience (CX) is broken.
Legacy technology is way behind and it creates a distorted view of the customer. Though it provides behavioral, demographic, and preference data, most martech doesn’t link important data silos together to deliver the bold multichannel experience always-on customers want.
How can marketers stay competitive in a data-driven world with outdated technology behind their decision-making?
Simple. They can’t.
In order to course correct the customer experience, marketers need: • The ability to build a holistic customer view that incorporates preferences, behaviors, and personalization across multiple devices and channels • A way to manage B2B and B2C CX at every touchpoint
Can your technology do all this?
Let’s look into that.
Imagine an environment where business decisions drive application choices and policy, with no regard for
infrastructure, where best practices are implemented based solely on business requirements—and a “guaranteed service level” means just that. The IT of the future will be an elaborate business operation unencumbered by past technology decisions, one capable of providing exact service levels to multiple constituencies while continually optimizing costs.

Consumer technology trends are clearly driving the evolution of modern work. As consumers (i.e. employees) become more mobile, they want their work lives to be just as flexible and responsive to their needs. They want to be able to use their own device — instead of a company-issued device — for all their personal and business-related responsibilities. As a result, consumer choice is now the driving force behind mobile enterprise decisions, and demand for the traditional locked-down enterprise device is rapidly decreasing.
