Christian Sharrow-Blaum • December 28, 2017

It’s been another year of significant growth and transformation both here at LYONSCG and in the world of eCommerce. From changing consumer tastes to big acquisitions, the LYONSCG blog has been there to cover it all across digital marketing, customer experience, unified commerce, operational excellence, and more.

So, without further ado, here are our ten most-read blog posts from 2017.


10. Unified Commerce Forum 2017

Every year, LYONSCG hosts a forum for clients and partners with the intention of building relationships, exchanging ideas, and staying on the cutting edge of eCommerce. This year’s forum was all about unified commerce. Brandon Witcher, Principal Analyst at Forrester, took the group through detailed research into technologies that are worth the hype. Executives at Intermix, Tourneau, and Pharmaca discussed real-life unified commerce applications in a rousing panel led by LYONSCG Executive VP and Co-Founder Dave Barr. All in all, the 2017 Commerce Connect Forum was a highlight of 2017.
