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.
