The world has dramatically changed in the last 14 days, and will continue to do so in ways we cannot yet predict. Businesses have to abruptly adapt to a new reality: an office-less workplace, agent-less service and store-less commerce. These changes are catalyzing business model obsolescence and accelerating the imperative to become a fully digital business.

This reality will fuel unprecedented digital rush, as well as cloud and AI adoption. As more businesses embrace these changes, the expectations will rise even higher for intelligent digital experiences in workplace, service and commerce.

Join Louis Tetu, Coveo CEO and Chairman, and Jim Roth, Executive Vice President, Customer Support at Salesforce, for a conversation and update on digital leadership through crisis, the role of data and AI in the next experience economy and more.
