What is CX architecture and why is it important?

Customer Experience Hangout Series | What is customer experience architecture?

We are glad to bring for you the 2nd part of the CX (customer experience) hangout series and here’s a quick summary of what it covers.

Improving customer experiences using technology is where everyone’s focus is today. The technology usually works quite well. The customer experience designs are usually clear. When you add one more ingredient, a clear business design, these kinds of projects can go extremely well.

What are we going to cover?

In today’s podcast, M. Ali Nasim and Mike Wittenstein  will explore how to coordinate and optimize three different disciplines (technology, business, and customer experience design) and their ways of thinking. Ali will explain how important it is to have a solid customer experience architecture and what that really means. Mike will explain how roadmaps identify everything you need to know about your customer. Both Ali and Mike will emphasize the importance of capabilities as part of a more powerful and useful business design.

When you get three different departments speaking three different languages on the same page, there’s practically nothing you can’t accomplish!

We would love to hear your feedback on the hangout and also some of the challenges that you’re facing on your CX initiatives with strategy, design and technology and most importantly in trying to connect the dots to make all of them work together with a ‘customer-first’ approach. If you would like to join this discussion, feel free to set up a time:
