“In the online world, it’s becoming more and more difficult to tell where the marketing stops and where the sales begin. The lines between the media and the shop are really blurred. We need to weave together what people talk, with what people see or hear, to how they experience the brand to what people transact, and how that is delivered,” said Dey.
“Data is the new premium,” said Prashant Kumar (pictured), senior partner at Entropia.
“In a world where automated supply chains get seamlessly married to programmatic demand engine, well harnessed actionable data will be a key source for competitive advantage,” he added.
“Sentient is where big data meets big ideas. We are all living data trails, and to know the footprints we left behind – individual or aggregated, is to know what could lie ahead, and is to help us know what we may like, offering huge opportunities in designing product proposition, pricing, access and communication,” he added.
