With IBM Real-Time Personalization, marketers will be able to deliver the intended message and offerings to customers.

Through the use of self-learning algorithms and analytics, it fine-tunes the experiences over time. IBM also announced new cognitive technologies in Commerce Insights, which provide merchandisers with a real-time view of their businesses, focused on how products and categories are performing.
