The increasing number of M&A deals in the market are creating corporate giants. Are they becoming "Too Big to Fail" or an impending problem that lurks over our economy?

In the turbulent sea of established and upcoming brands undergoing technological advances, it has become a tough task to retain one's ground. As they say, "there is a difference between a satisfied customer and a loyal customer and one should never settle for satisfied". This era of digitization has given a lot of challenges to companies perpetuating customer loyalty as loyal customers continuously expect exclusive treatment and much more to keep renovating their loyalties with the brands.
