Our rapid digitisation drive, the leapfrog to mobile-only strategy, and of course the vast population of millennials continue to make India an immensely attractive nation. It is amazing to see how our economy has matured, and is well on its way to reach the trillion-dollar prophecy by 2025. Adobe India continues to be one of the most exciting and fastest growing markets for us globally," Bawa added.

The session on Using Adobe Analytics to power advertising strategy offered interesting insights on the evolution of the digital media for everyday engagements.
Addressing the session, Vikram Chande, Head- Advertising Cloud India, said, "Today, digital media has evolved from being one channel single inventory to multi-channelled multi-inventory and provides highly personalised experiences for consumers so that we can engage them better in a more personalised way. The new way is to reach out to the target customers in a more holistic way, when it comes to messaging, by noticing user profiles, their behavioural patterns. Also, we give them a more secured environment, where they interact with our advertisements. These are highly secure and personalised experiences."
"With Adobe Analytics Cloud and Adobe Audience Analytics powered by AI and Algorithms, we are able to help brands identify the media that they buy from all the different channels, thereby giving a holistic view of the audiences and the end customers. It provides them with a very rich user profile to whom the messages can be delivered. We also present a tailored message rather than old-style creative messaging. We provide one platform for all formats be it digital, OTT, audio etc," added Chande.
