Transformation Stories: Are you ready to seize the untapped power of creativity in your business?

Creativity is often viewed as a key driver of innovation and success in businesses. However, it is often also an underutilized asset. While creative thinking has the potential to revolutionize industries, solve complex problems and improve customer experiences, many organizations struggle to tap into it effectively. There are multiple reasons behind this paradox, ranging from a lack of understanding creativity's commercial impact to rigid structures that prioritize predictability over novelty. While discussions on creativity have become increasingly common, the pivotal question of how more brands can acknowledge its significance continues to be paramount. In today's 25-minute episode, we’re joined by Ylva Lindberg, Managing Director of Valtech Radon to explore the exciting opportunity for brands to infuse creativity into every aspect of their customer experience. We'll discuss why this creative approach isn't as prevalent as it should be and why companies can no longer afford to treat it as an afterthought. Buckle up as we embark on a four-step quest to understand, embrace and harness the full power of creativity in the business world.

Transformation Stories: Navigating Composable Strategies

In our contemporary landscape, brands must offer personalized experiences to meet consumer expectations. To achieve this, connectivity is vital, serving as a beacon amidst the vast sea of information and allowing brands to differentiate themselves while fostering lasting relationships with their customers. Previously, a singular monolithic system was relied upon to consolidate all customer data, content, and contextual information. However, in modern times, these components are separated into composable systems, connecting to create seamless experiences. The "three Cs" - customer, content, and context - are crucial to achieving this, but the challenge lies in harmonizing them from their diverse origins. In today's 33-minute podcast, we sit down with Sana Remekie, CEO of and Karen Light, Director of Platform Strategy in the Composable Practice at Valtech. Together, we delve into the intricate landscape of composable architectures and shed light on the complexities, challenges, changes, and many other Cs facing brands today. Tune in now to gain a fresh perspective on the challenges and opportunities in composable architecture.

In an industry where more than half of consumers are skeptical about brand experiences and struggle to differentiate between brands, nearly 50% of marketing decision-makers state that they are overwhelmed with a mass of data.

In today’s 27-minute conversation, we are delighted to be joined by Christian Herold, Director of Consumer Experience and Engagement at Cosnova, to hear their insights on delivering emotion-driven customer experiences with the power of data experimentation.

Live from D-Congress 2022: The Future Vision

For city dwellers, its clear to see that the places we live, and how we live in them, have all been designed to support a former age.  As the intersecting roads and junctions weave across a gridded map, our homes, offices and shops line streets made for diesel guzzling cars and trucks. Our pavements crammed with people moving from A-B, sometimes on a journey that has taken them many miles from home. Our cities hum with the movement of the modern age. But perhaps it’s time to take another look at the spaces that we move between. Imagine 50 years from now, when our means of transport, our work-lives and our carbon usage will be a world away from where they are today. What, then, should our cities look like? How should they ‘be’ and how do we get them there? In this conversation we're joined by Filip Kjellgren, a future-mobility systems strategist and programme manager from VINNOVA, Sweden’s innovation agency. Their mission is to promote sustainable growth by improving the conditions for innovation, as well as funding needs-driven research. Vinnova’s vision is for Sweden to be a world-leading country in research and innovation and an attractive place in which to invest and conduct business.

Live from D-Congress 2022: The Opti-Channel Leaders

For years we’ve talked about the power of omnichannel retail – the seamless combination of digital and physical touch points to deliver a flawless commerce experience. But for this guest, it might be time to change the narrative, and shift from an omni-experience to an opti-experience. One where continuous optimisation to serve the needs of consumers takes centre stage. When the digital boom took retailers (and their customers) online, we all know that the raison d’être of the physical store changed, but for Swedish Electronics retailer NetonNet, their physical presence has remained their secret weapon. Founded in 1999, NetOnNet was awarded the best Nordic company in Omnichannel by Google, and they are widely noted as the European leader in Omnichannel. To find out more about their strategy, and the opportunities and challenges they have been presented with along the way, we're delighted to be joined by CEO, Susanne Holmstrom

Transformation Stories: The Data Dimension

With the ambition to deliver the best possible experiences for their users (and derive new revenue opportunities for themselves in the process), brands are understandably turning to their data to look for the answers. But, to deliver the experiences that add the most value requires a genuine understanding of your customer data. As we scale to new heights in connected, omnichannel offerings, we are only adding to the complexity that brands need to deal with. So, how can we make sense of the data we’re collecting? How can we derive value from it today, and how can we use those insights to plan for tomorrow, too? In this episode, we're joined by John Allen, Head of Data and Analytics Product Strategy, Cloud and Platform Technology, Global Investment Bank, and Per Rasmussen, Managing Director, Commercial Strategy & Data Transformation, Valtech.
