Integrating online and offline capabilities ranked third and “holistic customer-centricity” was a lowly number eight. Similarly, customer segmentation and targeting was the most-cited challenge while omnichannel engagement ranked fourth and consolidating application and data silos was ninth. In other words: most retailers are still wrestling with basic marketing technology.
