great customer experiences

Last week, we partnered with Ray Wang of Constellation Research for a TweetChat on delivering better digital customer experiences. Given the importance of this topic for today’s enterprises, the dialogue was energetic and engaging, with experts across many industries weighing in with their perspectives on digital business transformation and its impact on the customer experience. The conversation also included several mentions of Avanade and Sitecore’s recent research on digital customer experience trends.

A wide assortment of industry experts, analysts, influencers and IT leaders weighed in on the topic, including Michael KrigsmanMaribel LopezBrian Katz and Beth Torrie. We also heard from our Avanade leaders and experts, including Florin Rotar, Wayne Anderson, David Torres, Sherri Brouwer and Dan O’Hara, among others. Below are some of the notable observations and insights that arose from the conversation:

  • Creating compelling customer experiences starts by listening to customer needs, and remembering that customers are humans, too.
  • Digital business transformation requires a culture shift that must start at the top. Leadership must walk the talk.
  • It’s ok to experiment to learn what works. Some of the most meaningful digital customer experience improvements are created by trial and error, and a willingness to test.
  • Employees are an often-overlooked audience segment. In order to provide digital experiences on the outside, organizations must have a digital employee experience on the inside.
