Security is also a concern. Risk is rising, as both the enterprise and its customers exchange a growing amount of sensitive data. This transformation is also amplifying competition.

The most important component for brand relevance and long-term customer relationships is the ability of an organization to deliver captivating experiences that feel personal, every time. Roughly 90% of senior marketers worldwide are implementing personalization strategies…but only 6% rate their strategy as advanced. Winning this race to delivering authentic personalization requires more than a random mix of technology tools. You need a strong web experience foundation that fuels your personalization strategy. Using a variety of digital marketing tools may help you perform specific functions well, but without having them talk to each other, it’s difficult to personalize experiences—which leaves you defaulting to static web pages with generic information. Using the support of a rock-solid web foundation, you can bring uniformity to your digital properties and over just the right experiences to your customers again and again.

The one thing these powerful brands have in common? Data. The growth of data has brought us to the tipping point between brand and customer. Before the digital age, the biggest and best brands had just that – a brand, which THEY controlled. Now, a brand is powerful because of the data it collects and how it uses it to serve its customers. The value of data is only going to increase as we move from a handful of brands owning first-party data to a greater democratization of information. As a result, consumers will have much more control over their personal data and more companies will be able to generate their own first-party data.
