IBM has had its finger on the pulse of the retail sector during a time when the brand-consumer dynamic has undergone a dramatic shift and retailers are being asked to embrace critical new innovations to keep up. Through the power of Watson and AI technologies, we are helping businesses bring data to life so retailers can gain a view into areas that were once dark, from each individual customer to their supply chain, web site and more. We are delivering AI-powered solutions for Marketers, Merchandisers, Commerce and Supply Chain leaders to help them create these personalized experiences at scale. It’s this clarity that’s allowing our customers transform their strategies and achieve their full potential.
