The Data Breakthrough Awards honor the most innovative products, solutions, and companies in the field of data technology.

Last year was a lesson in the power of adaptability and resilience for retailers and consumers alike. With its ability to evaluate thousands of attributes that impact the shopping experience, TCS Optumera’s AI-driven recommendations enable retailers to respond effectively to changing omnichannel dynamics while improving growth, margins, and customer satisfaction,” said Shankar Narayanan, Business Group Head, Retail, CPG, Travel & Hospitality, TCS. “We are delighted at this recognition of TCS Optumera’s innovative use of AI to help retailers around the world gain a competitive advantage.”

TCS Optumera uses advanced AI to monitor thousands of customer, market, and vendor behaviors. This real-time analysis helps retailers offer customers the right products in the right stores, in the right place, and at competitive prices. AI simulations also gauge the effectiveness of new merchandizing and product strategies.
