Salesforce went shopping last week. And it’s latest addition to its acquisition collection: the ecommerce platform Demandware. The sale included an amazing 2.8 bn $ US price. Alex & Kai will discuss what this means for the ecommerce landscape and especially Demandware.
During the last weeks the little helpers (aka Amazon Alexa & Google Home) popped up in the news. Where Google just announced its Home device to be available later this year, Alexa is alive and kicking for quite some time now. We take a closer look at how this special area of ecommerce evolves.
Also social commerce is not dead (we actually never said that…), but is taking place somewhere else than just the buy buttons. And Instagram is proving it with releasing their new business tools to help marketing content.
