Loyalty and rewards programs are powerful tools for brands to boost member engagement, acquisition, and retention. Learn why leading brands are turning to modern customer identity and access management (CIAM) solutions to scale their loyalty programs, improve user experience, and maximize ROI.
In this paper, we identify the challenges associated with transforming, expanding, and scaling customer loyalty and rewards programs and related membership initiatives, and present solutions based on real-world case studies from four industries. We explore the requirements for an enterprise-grade CIAM solution and address related issues such as build vs. buy and CIAM vs. IAM.
By examining four diverse case studies — and the resulting identity management solutions that were implemented by the respective companies — this paper provides valuable insight for any enterprise wishing to expand or uplift its customer loyalty program to meet membership needs in the age of the consumer.
All-flash storage is on a strong growth trajectory, but the industry is not swooning naively over the blazing fast I/O speeds. Most IT managers are talking a mature, step-by-step approach to all-flash adoption. Falling per-gigabyte prices are making the technology more commonplace. Solid state drives are no longer just for specialized, high-performing tasks. Before they leap, however, storage professionals want to understand the full business picture as they formulate a winning strategy for putting all-flash storage to use for more workloads.
This paper offers insights for business success with all-flash storage based on IT Central Station reviews. Real users weigh in on what it takes to get the most out of the technology. It covers such aspects of flash storage as the need for simplicity and the importance of flexibility. The paper also looks at how to build a business case for all-flash and think through the implications of issues such as integration with existing infrastructure.
This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t
Big Data and analytics workloads represent a new frontier for organizations. Data is being collected from sources that did not exist 10 years ago. Mobile phone data, machine-generated data, and website interaction data are all being collected and analyzed. In addition, as IT budgets are already under pressure, Big Data footprints are getting larger and posing a huge storage challenge. This paper provides information on the issues that Big Data applications pose for storage systems and how choosing the correct storage infrastructure can streamline and consolidate Big Data and analytics applications without breaking the bank.
To support open government initiatives and uphold the values of transparency, participation and collaboration in the US, federal agencies today make their data open, or publicly accessible. Citizens can use this open data to assess college affordability, the economy, educational issues, environmental damage, health care, taxes, agriculture, the climate and more. Governments can use APIs to pull this open data into SAS Visual Analytics as a way to identify trends and patterns and obtain all sorts of new insights. With public health surveillance, for example, governments can monitor and evaluate indicators that point to high-risk areas so they’ll know where and how to focus efforts. Such public health surveillance can serve as an early warning system for impending emergencies, document the impact of an intervention, track progress toward public health goals, and clarify health problems to inform public health policies and strategies.
To meet the challenges of intense competition and increasing customer demands, companies must tightly align their IT service management with business issues and priorities. This paper outlines the maturity steps involved in the progression towards proactive Business Service Management (BSM) and explains how ASG's metaCMDB helps secure its seamless adoption.
The response to possible bank card fraud is one of the most important factors affecting the relationship that customers have with their bank.

Global corporate enterprise AI practitioners are clearly still dealing with infrastructure issues related to talent and technology. End-to-end processes remain stubbornly carbon-based. Rule-based automation is truly not yet globally scaled across the majority of organizations.
Double the AI
And yet, the AI & Intelligent Automation Network members went from 21%, having deployed Intelligent Enterprise solutions to over 44% in just one year’s time.
Over 4/5 expect to deploy AI in under two years
The stated goal for deployment is just under 83% by the end of 2020. Considering the fact that they’ve essentially got two years, and those ranks have doubled in one year – doubling again in two years is achievable. Incidentally, that same number was only 67% a year ago.
50% expect to be established, globally scaling or refining AI in under two years
Global corporate enterprise is in fact slowly but surely transforming into the intelligent enterprise of tomorrow. Having said that, it will be

Customers are more technically savvy than everand have come to prefer the DIY approach to solving their issues and answering their own questions. Years of research by ICMI has confirmed that customers prefer to resolve issues themselves and within their channels of choice. Furthermore, customers onlyseek direct interactions when they unsuccessfully exhaust their self-service options. This is backed up by data from American Express, which found that 48% of consumers prefer to speak with a customer service rep when dealing with complex issues, but only16% prefer the same contact for simple issues. The goal

In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
Very little data is available on how effectively enterprises are managing private cloud deployments in the real world. Are they doing so efficiently, or are they facing challenges in areas such as performance, TCO and capacity? Hewlett Packard Enterprise commissioned 451 Research to explore these issues through a survey of IT decision-makers and data from the Cloud Price Index.
This white paper discusses the issues involved in the traditional practice of deploying transactional and analytic applications on separate platforms using separate databases. It analyzes the results from a user survey, conducted on SAP's behalf by IDC, that explores these issues.
