Maintaining business continuity is your highest priority.
In today’s commercial landscape, business continuity depends on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data across the organization – from operations to sales to fulfillment. Even a brief lapse in workload continuity can mean thousands of lost sales opportunities, disruption to production, and compromised customer trust.
The causes of those lapses can range from natural disasters to mechanical failure or human error. You need a data platform and a proactive disaster recovery (DR) strategy that will help you stay up and running in the event that your physical infrastructure is unavailable for any length of time.
Fulfilling orders, providing a high level of customer service, and keeping consumers engaged all depend on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data throughout your organization.
Above all, protecting customer data—especially personally identifiable information (PII) —is critical

As the approach to strategic business decision making becomes more and more data driven, a method for consolidating our various data sets, which are often spread across multiple systems becomes exceedingly important.
Two of the biggest players in data driven decision making are website analytics platforms and customer relationship management systems. The former includes accumulating data on top of the funnel behavior such as site traffic origins, lead generation, content consumption tracking, device usage, and overall site behavior. While the latter has a focus more on bottom of the funnel activity such as lead nurturing, customer status, lifetime value, etc.
Lastly, without communication between these two essential platforms, a complete understanding of your customers, from lead to longtime client, may never be possible. A web analytics (Google Analytics) and CRM integration provides you with a 360 degree view of your customer base, so that you can understand not just what PPC efforts
The Internet of Things enables retailers to do three basics better
1) Sensing who customers are and what they’re doing,
2) Understanding customer behavior and preferences, and
3)Acting on that insight to create a more engaging customer
- There are high-potential IoT applications in supply chain, in
“smart store” operations, and especially in providing an engaging
experience to the “connected customer.” IoT data can anticipate
where the customer is headed and how to meet her there.
- Much of the IoT ground, in both data management and analytics,
may be unfamiliar. Retailers and their IT organizations have to be
realistic about the technological challenges, their own capabilities,
and where they need assistance.
- To differentiate through IoT, focus on the analytics. Devices and
their data — and even their platforms — are commodities.
Advantage goes to the retailer who does the most with the data to
engage the connected customer.

In the modern age, customers are in control of when, where, and how they consume information. In this environment, customer-focused companies strive to make their content available to an ever-growing number of connected users and devices on a much larger scale than ever before, and to gather as much data and insight from these interactions as possible. To achieve this securely, companies need identity and access management (IAM) platforms that are adaptable, scalable, responsive, and high velocity— not typical characteristics of employee-facing IAM, but all too typical of other systems of engagement. This species of solution is worthy of a unique name: identity relationship management (IRM).
CTOs, CIOs, and application architects need access to datacenter facilities capable of handling the broad range of content serving, Big Data/analytics, and archiving functions associated with the systems of engagement and insight that they depend upon to better service customers and enhance business outcomes. They need to enhance their existing datacenters, they need to accelerate the building of new datacenters in new geographies, and they need to take greater advantage of advanced, sophisticated datacenters designed, built, and operated by service providers. IDC terms this business and datacenter transformation the shift to the 3rd Platform.

Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later. Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that – despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds – their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.
In today’s business environment, customers rely on the most efficient, high performing, and reliable backup systems to protect critical business information.

In today’s mobile world, the user is at the center of the application experience. This is true whether the user is a customer, a partner, or an employee. Yet meeting the needs for the enterprise user poses particular challenges. Apps must work seamlessly across devices and screen sizes, enabling real-time collaboration, without sacrificing data security. This balance requires a mobile app development platform built for the unique demands of the enterprise.
Enterprises routinely claim to be focused on the customer experience, yet few really keep that promise. What’s in the way? Fragmentation and complexity in both customer data and customer-facing processes. IIA spoke with Wilson Raj, Global Director of Customer Intelligence, and Jonathan Moran, Customer Intelligence Product Marketing at SAS Institute Inc. about how organizations can leverage technology platforms and analytics to become more completely and genuinely customer-centric – making connections in the right way, at the right time, and on the right device.
