This interview is with Patrick Salyer, CEO of Gigya, which provides a powerful technology that enables brands to collect data from all sources in order to better understand and connect with their customers. Servicing some of the most digitally savvy companies in the world such as Red Bull, Pepsi, Nike, ASOS as well as upscale names such as Barneys New York, Christie’s and Kate Spade, Gigya is clearly in the sweet spot for companies looking to create a single customer view.
