Why Read This Report

In the age of the customer, channel-specific strategies, tactics, and organizational structures become irrelevant. Why? Customers expect seamless and connected journeys. Companies must therefore be designed to operate as a single unit. Today's digital business professionals are helping their organizations consolidate online and offline divisions. While it's not easy to make this shift, both culturally and financially, operating holistically allows companies to shift their focus to create a universal customer experience, not channel-specific incentives and bonuses. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
