Retail in Asia

Unlock the power of your data

The pandemic transformed the way our customers shop and connect with brands. For many retailers, this huge behavioural shift has been challenging.

– Jayan Dy, Head of Omnichannel, SM Retail
– Ryan de Melo, Vice President of Engineering, Tokopedia

– Hugh Kimber, General Manager EMEA, Bloomreach


During this session you will learn:

–  The key steps in a retailer’s technology journey to build a unified data platform
–  Challenges and learnings in implementing their unified data strategy

–  Successful retailers stories & key benefits realised in implementing a unified data platform

–  Trends & advice for other retailers on their data strategy to better prepare for tomorrow


The webinar includes a live Q&A session with the speakers.
