Many digital startups deliver amazing customer experiences because they focus exclusively on a very specific market niche, unlike larger companies, which find advantage through scale.

Increasingly, executives are turning towards cognitive computing to analyse vast amounts of customer data in order to identify and serve micro-segments and prevent startups from gaining a strong foothold.
