This IDC study explores the impact that technology will have on customer experience.
According to Alan Webber, program vice president for Customer Experience at IDC, "The customer experience space is in a period of significant shift — we see new technologies such as AI becoming extremely relevant, we see end customers adopting significant levels of technology, and we see vendors trying to establish themselves as the platform of choice. It is a bit of the Wild West of technology right now as end-user companies employ technology to strive to differentiate themselves and this makes it difficult for CMOs, CIOs, and CEOs to really understand what technologies they should be investing in to build that long-term engagement with their customers."
