This presentation was given by Econsultancy senior research analyst Andrew Warren-Payne at FeWeb's 'The Future is Back' event on April 1st 2014.
In his talk, Andrew highlighted the continual existence of "The Gap" in digital marketing between what companies want to be doing and what they are actually doing. Based on the decreasing longevity of companies, this gap presents a real danger for companies who do not seek to close it.
This gap is being created by the constant pace at which consumer behaviour is changing, driven by speed of developments in technology. And just as mobile and multichannel customer behaviours are proving a challenge to companies today, the emergence of the 'Internet of Things' will again change customer behaviour in the future.
