BO221092 - Sitecore, machine learning, and one-to-one personalization Personas and rules engine in Sitecore are great, but they are not enough. Consumers today expect one-to-one personalization. They expect retailers to know them and know what they are looking for in real time. Sitecore knows the pages being visited and knows a lot about the customer based on browsing and buying history. The tricky thing is to turn all that knowledge into the experience that delivers the most mutual value. There are hundreds of thousands of possibilities and permutations.
