For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.

After decades in the limelight, email remains the most powerful channel for eCommerce marketers. And this success continues even as many eCommerce marketing teams rely heavily on batch and blast emails that go to their entire list without any customization. While such efforts clearly bring in revenue, they also leave money — a lot of money — on the table.
Recognizing that largely untapped opportunity, top eCommerce marketers have started to take a more strategic approach to email. In addition to traditional batch and blast campaigns,
these marketers now tailor messages based on both their customers’ behaviors and changes to their product data in
order to send more customized and timely messages.
To better understand how retailers are using email, including the extent to which they have embraced individualized messaging opportunities and the effectiveness of those messages, Bluecore turned to the data. Our 2018 Retail Email Benchmark report provides a baseline understanding of these a

Service-centric cloud ERP solutions have matured and are increasingly being adopted by midsize and large organizations.
Many vendors offer service-centric cloud ERP, but their suitability varies by organization size, geographic presence and industry.
An emerging competitive differentiator is vendors' delivery of "packaged" integration, which enables customers to loosely couple their cloud ERP products with professional services administration (PSA), CRM and other vertical-specific applications.
Cloud-based service-centric solutions now offer feature-parity with, and the same functional depth as, established on-premises solutions.
Retailers, along with many other vertical industries, seek to take advantage of the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve customer experience management. However, quickly analyzing relevant data to inform decision-making and respond e?ectively to rapidly changing customer behaviors is challenging. The CEMOSoft* platform is designed to create opportunities, while addressing shifting demographics and an evolving IoT landscape. It o?ers a mobile customer engagement experience that can be dynamically modified on the ?y, along with the increased security and intelligence of an Intel® architecture based IoT gateway and Windows® 10 IoT Core. The result is an a?ordable, ?exible, scalable platform that brings ongoing customer insight to many aspects of daily operations
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is helping
companies reduce costs and improve on quality and
productivity by automating some of their most time
consuming, rule-based and replicable business
processes. RPA is especially effective in the banking
and insurance sector where it brings speed and
efficiency to customer service and compliance.
Based on artificial intelligence algorithms, Expert
System’s Cogito cognitive technology enables an
automatic, human-like understanding of the content of
text documents. Applied to RPA, Cogito adds greater
business value and ROI for both repetitive and
complex information-intensive processes.
Using Cogito, companies can expect up to 53%
savings on activities such as FTEs and warranty
management, and cost reductions of 30 to 60% for
email management and quote processing, etc.
