We marketers understand the importance of leveraging insights to drive results. However, we don’t have the time, tools, or resources to crunch numbers, analyze trends, and recognize customer behavior patterns in real time – all while ensuring campaigns and projects go off without a hitch.

In this webinar, you’ll hear from marketing experts who will discuss how cognitive solutions can:
• Revolutionize how you engage with your customers
• Help you uncover aggregate trends
• Discover new personalization opportunities – and even predict customer behavior

Supply chain professionals know that disruptions are inevitable. 87% of CSCOs say lack of visibility makes it difficult to proactively mitigate disruptions. No supply chain can afford to spend days mitigating disruptions, but especially not when you have a spend of more than $30 billion for a supply chain that operates in over 170 countries. Five years ago IBM's Chief Supply Chain Officer, Joanne Wright, set out to work with IBM engineers and craft a cognitive solution to her supply chain’s data overload challenges.
Joanne’s innovation leadership helped…
• Reduce IBM’s data retrieval times by more than 75%
• Saved the company $40 million in inventory and freight costs
Little did she know that a couple of years later the whole global supply chain profession would benefit from her intrapreneurship and ingenuity.

The pace of commerce isn't slowing down anytime soon, customer expectations continue to evolve, market trends come and go, and new competitive threats emerge constantly. Let's face it, many retailers struggle to keep up, often hampered by technology that's inflexible, hard to use and not conducive for rapid innovation and building the sort of brand experiences shoppers want.
Retailers want a modern commerce architecture that lets them innovate quickly within days not months. They want lower cost of ownership and less overhead. They want upgrades that don't take months to implement and test. They want AI infused so they can do more with less human intervention. They want to be building something new that delights their customers, not spending all their time maintaining what they have today.

Omnichannel has been one of retail's favorite buzzwords for years now. Yet while the phrase was eagerly adopted, few retailers have successfully realized the promise of channel agnosticity and implemented a truly seamless shopping experience. In many cases, brands chased ubiquity and in their search for being everywhere, they ended up being nowhere. In other cases, they lacked the technological tools to turn their omnichannel vision into reality.
Omnichannel isn't about being everywhere. It's about understanding that the customer is the channel and to be intensely relevant in the moments that matter to create a friction-free shopping experience. In this webinar, we'll outline the key steps to a harmonized customer experience and highlight how IBM's launch of WebSphere Commerce Version 9 can help.

As marketing, commerce, and customer service continue to shift to digital channels — and as an increasingly greater share of an organization's revenue comes from digital business — organizations have become acutely aware of the need for an enterprise digital experience platform. Such a platform enables them to quickly and cost effectively create, manage, and deliver cross-channel, cross-device digital experiences to their various constituents; measure the effectiveness of the experiences; and optimize the experiences based on analytical insights. As IDC's research has shown, organizations that use IBM Digital Experience have realized significant business benefits, including increased revenue and quicker time to market, reduced costs and improved staff productivity, and increased customer and employee engagement.
Being the owners of the customer experience is not something we as Marketers take lightly. With 90% of data being created in the last twelve months it has become even more challenging and time-intensive to create real-time and personalized customer experiences.

Commerce organizations are grappling with the need to work faster, deliver sooner, and scale up and down as demand requires. SaaS commerce is appealing, but in many cases, organizations don’t want their customer data to reside in a public cloud or they don’t want to outsource their commerce infrastructure to their biggest competitor. Does this mean these organizations will lose out on the benefits of cloud? No. Now they can have the best of both worlds, the control their business requires and the speed and ease of use of SaaS.
Join us to learn how you can:
- Speed migration to WebSphere Commerce V9 and start reaping the benefits of a modern commerce platform.
- Easily gain the skills needed to build and run your own multi-cloud commerce environment.
- Accelerate your commerce operations to deliver customer experience enhancements faster and reduce commerce platform TCO.
