Keeping this in mind, Adobe also introduced industry's first Customer Data Platform (CDP) architected for first party data . This will help marketers manage the entire customer profile and journey seamlessly in one system, without the need for third-party cookies. Additionally, Adobe and FedEx announced a new multi-year collaboration starting with the integration of Adobe Commerce with ShopRunner.

A trillion-dollar opportunity
There's no doubt that e-commerce marketplaces were the most well-equipped to meet new challenges in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Over the past decade, they've focused on supply chains, digital marketing, e-payment processing, and last-mile delivery. Global commerce continues to see record-breaking growth with US$ 876 billion in the first three months of 2021. That's a YoY growth of 38 per cent, and 2021 could clock up to US$ 4.2 trillion.
Our resilience, which has been tested through pandemics, geopolitical tensions & natural disasters will turn crisis into opportunity. We have seen industries explode in digital adoption from financial services, education, health, government services and of course retail
