|13:30-13:55||A Blank Sheet For Organisational Structure In A Digital, Customer-Centric World||[ Details ]|
Digital transformation and customer-centricity are two business imperatives facing virtually every organisation.
The destiny for "digital": it becomes so integrated in the organisation that it ceases to exist as a separate function. Most organisations are currently somewhere between the centre of excellence and hub-and-spoke stages of digital maturity.
And what about customer-centricity? If you had a blank slate, what would a fully-digital, customer-centric organisation look like? And where would marketing be in this structure?
In this forward-looking session, Ashley will examine several innovative organisational designs that answer these questions — and share examples of pioneering companies who are already implementing them.

Customer experience management (CxM) platforms are technology enablers within wider digital transformation programmes. They enable brands to deliver those right-time experiences at key decision points in the customer journey to drive engagement. However, your own CxM platform must be assembled to satisfy your brand-specific needs. That involves buying new, building for, bridging between and burning existing marketing technologies. How do you approach that challenge? What does "good" look like? How do you incentivise adoption? What works well? What should be avoided?

The hundreds of available choices in the marketing technology landscape are indisputably overwhelming: how should you go about selecting the right mix of tools to fulfill your marketing vision?
This session will focus on analytic approaches to different segments of the marketing technology landscape, helping you to determine how to approach technology selection based on your industry, use case scenarios, budget, and strategy.
