"Together CoreMedia and SysIQ will provide their customers with stronger capabilities to address the emotional and inspirational drivers of e-commerce. The end-to-end experiential commerce solution will enable our customers to transform their online stores and provide shoppers with a better, more visually appealing and immersive experience."
