Transformation Stories: Navigating Composable Strategies
In our contemporary landscape, brands must offer personalized experiences to meet consumer expectations. To achieve this, connectivity is vital, serving as a beacon amidst the vast sea of information and allowing brands to differentiate themselves while fostering lasting relationships with their customers.
Previously, a singular monolithic system was relied upon to consolidate all customer data, content, and contextual information. However, in modern times, these components are separated into composable systems, connecting to create seamless experiences. The "three Cs" - customer, content, and context - are crucial to achieving this, but the challenge lies in harmonizing them from their diverse origins.
In today's 33-minute podcast, we sit down with Sana Remekie, CEO of Conscia.ai and Karen Light, Director of Platform Strategy in the Composable Practice at Valtech. Together, we delve into the intricate landscape of composable architectures and shed light on the complexities, challenges, changes, and many other Cs facing brands today. Tune in now to gain a fresh perspective on the challenges and opportunities in composable architecture.
Transformation Stories: The Delight Complex
In an industry where more than half of consumers are skeptical about brand experiences and struggle to differentiate between brands, nearly 50% of marketing decision-makers state that they are overwhelmed with a mass of data. Additionally, they report not knowing how to leverage the maturity of data points they already have, and so, the question that comes to mind first is where retail brands are going wrong when it comes to delivering experiences that really count. How can they focus on the things that truly make a difference for consumers in both the short and the long term?
In today’s 27-minute conversation, we are delighted to be joined by Christian Herold, Director of Consumer Experience and Engagement at Cosnova, to hear their insights on delivering emotion-driven customer experiences with the power of data experimentation.
