During the PIM Experience Virtual Summit '21 event held by Sales Layer this spring, we were privileged to be joined by IDC, one of the world's leading analyst firms on digital commerce trends.
Jordan Jewell, Research Manager in Digital Commerce at IDC, explained to PIM Experience participants how the retail landscape has changed during this past year of pandemic, as well as the challenges and radical transformations for consumers and players involved in the manufacturing and sales chain.

IDC Q&A with Jordan Jewell: Product Experience, AI & PIM
If there is one key conclusion IDC has reached, it is undoubtedly the need for companies involved in retail and consumer products to embrace new growth-enhancing technologies. In their report, "Unlocking Digital Commerce Potential with a Modern PIM System in the Cloud", they analyzed Sales Layer's growing role as a Product Information Management platform provider and its power as a scalable, collaborative and easy-to-use PIM.
PIM (Product Information Management) is the system that IDC has identified as the most vital to any business, especially those with an omnichannel or ecommerce strategy, as it creates better shopping experiences and multiplies conversions by automating the management of product catalogs and sales channels.
PIM Experience Virtual Summit '21 participants had the opportunity to send their questions to Jordan Jewell, and we have compiled them into an exclusive video that answers all of our customers' and partners' questions and concerns about digital products and product experience.
Jordan has conducted for IDC several studies and surveys among dozens of vendors using PIM technology, using their responses to present the most up-to-date data on the 2021 market.
