“Looking at how people are changing because of technology is nothing short of inspirational,” said Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter Group and author of “X: The Experience When Business Meets Design.”
Brian urged us to consider “Embrace” the new “Engage,” as empathetic brands who proactively listen are putting themselves in ahead. Co-creation is replacing advertiser-created messages that have been historically shoved down the consumer-throat until the messages are automatically tuned out.

Altimeter and Phronesis Partners surveyed 528 strategists and executives in North America and Western Europe across various industries about digital transformation. Perhaps troublingly, solid majorities of respondents rated each of six potential obstacles as “challenging” or “very challenging.”

Back in 2012, digital analyst Brian Solis defined Generation C as the “Connected Consumer.” He pointed out that anyone who integrates technology into their daily routine, regardless of age, shares certain qualities.

The 2016 State of Digital Transformation
Big role for CMOs. Are they ready?
The data shows people are starting to do the right thing such as using customer journey maps and trying to understand the connected customer. These things show companies want to learn and change. But it’s still nascent. Most companies are still in the second or third stage, although some are beginning to spread their wings to reach the fourth or fifth stage like Sephora and Starbucks. But at the end of the day, there’s still much to learn in the organization especially around customer experience.

Customer Experience (CX) is a difficult process, because so many stakeholders interpret CX differently and then prioritize investments and resources accordingly. The IT-Department thinks it’s about technology. The Marketing-Department thinks it’s about omnichannel. The department customer service focuses on contact touchpoints. The Advertising-Department activates experiential events and campaigns. And the executives ask for customer data and make decisions based on narrow inputs and more so cognitive biases.
