In today’s digital age, brand differentiation is predominantly a function of customer experience (CX). And, the key to delivering successful CX, according to Adobe’s Digital Trends Report – 2023, is through personalization.
The report revealed only 7% of practitioners consider their organization’s digital CX to be exceptional and able to surprise and delight customers, while 42% of organizations believe their customer experience sometimes falls short of customer needs.
To explore the boundaries of CX and the potential MarTech, which entails using technology to plan and execute marketing activities, CNBC TV18, in partnership with Adobe, initiated 'Experience Makers'. This series brings together experts and thought-leaders from across industry to discuss opportunities, challenges, trends, and prospects in leveraging MarTech for business growth.

Acknowledging that customers prioritize CX above all else, while making purchase decisions, she pointed out that the whole idea of personalization is not new to India. “It’s the digital aspects of personalization that are evolving,” she clarified.
