Omni is an overused term that is hardly understood in its entirety leading to problems in definition and execution of initiatives. Omni is not just a channel (of order capture) concept, but an organization paradigm. Omni encompasses breaking the traditional silos within the organization, promoting cross business unit co-operation and innovation, integration between multiple systems, cross visibility of portfolios and key initiatives as well as harmonization of architectural ideologies. The Omni concept extends beyond traditional IT domain to promoting co-operation between CMO, Business and the IT heads. Omni initiatives require seamless interactions between multiple business units to provide a unified experience to the customer.
