Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS), cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized, dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.
