In this interview at the Shoptalk 2018 conference in Las Vegas I spoke with Drew Giovannoli, product marketing manager at Bazaarvoice.

We discuss the different aspects of how personalization is views in 2018 and what tools and services Bazaarvoice is working on.
Personalization is a buzzword in any e-commerce, retail or consumer-facing technology these days, but what does it mean exactly? And what's the range of specific features or benefits customers are expecting for a more personlized e-commerce experience?
