Rethinking the Experience Strategy for Marketers in the area of Cognitive Enterprise


AI is causing a revolution in the way business works and many marketing leaders are struggling to keep up. According to many analysts, the future is likely to change more over the next 5 years than it has over the last 20, with over 85% of marketing transformation projects destined to fail. A foundation of any marketing organization is infusing cognitive thinking abilities into real-time insights, into better decisions and marketing actions for the desired Integrated Experience outcomes for their companies— to help them capture competitive advantage and lead in their markets.

In this fast paced session, Pinar will explore how marketing organizations can start their integrated experience journey in a area of Cognitive Enterprise, offering practical advise,  with some powerful case studies. Pinar will show how the best combination will always be “organic” and “artificial” intelligence working together.
