A surprising 80% of the 30 million1 warehouse workers worldwide, in the field of transportation and logistics, are still using pen and paper in a physically-intensive environment that increasingly demands accuracy and real time feedback. With warehouse efficiency, so closely tied to customer satisfaction in areas like ecommerce, the low penetration of digital solutions—20% as recent as 2014, is surprising. Unless an organization has a fully automated warehouse, the job is heavily labor-intensive.

If you’ve ever ordered your morning coffee and felt uninspired by the request to participate in an online survey or leave a social review regarding your experience, you probably didn’t have a particularly noteworthy experience. If you’re willing to take time out of your day to leave online feedback, it’s usually because you want to warn people about a bad encounter, or to help them make a better buying decision.
Think the online review phenomena might sometimes have ulterior motives? Read on to see what we uncovered.

DevOps (short for development and operations), like most
new approaches, is only a buzzword for many people.
Everyone talks about it, but not everyone knows what it is.
In broad terms, DevOps is an approach based on lean and agile
principles in which business owners and the development, operations,
and quality assurance departments collaborate to deliver
software in a continuous manner that enables the business to
more quickly seize market opportunities and reduce the time
to include customer feedback. Indeed, enterprise applications are
so diverse and composed of multiple technologies, databases,
end-user devices, and so on, that only a DevOps approach will be
successful when dealing with these complexities. Opinions differ
on how to use it, however.
Some people say that DevOps is for practitioners only; others say
that it revolves around the cloud. IBM takes a broad and holistic
view and sees DevOps as a business-driven software delivery
approach — an approach that takes a new or en
1.Meet the new consumer
The migration to mobile and social media will challenge — and change — everything we know about consumer marketing.
2. Who owns your brand?
Brand equity can no longer be bought. Online reviews now generate total market transparency for location-based businesses. Reviews tilt the balance of branding power away from companies and into the hands of customers.
3. The battle for brick-and-mortar customers is won or lost on the social web. To win, marketers must actively enlist customers as online advocates. Those who scale online review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility and more business at street level.
4. “Dark data” provides priceless operational insights
Vast amounts of unstructured, unmined sentiment data on social media provides feedback about the customer experience that you can filter using thematic analysis and use to improve operations at the national or location level.
5. Business implications

We all know that employee engagement is important. Employees that are aligned with their goals, aware of their performance gaps, and motivated to improve, perform better. It’s stating the obvious. The big question is how to get there, and whether technology can help us do this at scale. This is where most digital motivation initiatives hit a wall. A new breed of next generation performance and feedback systems are attempting to do just that: creating and maintaining a continuous personalized conversation between employees and managers with regards to performance, development and goals.
In online marketing, personalizing messages and promotional activities has been possible for some time. It is called “Marketing Automation”. Hubspot, one of the pioneers in this field, defines it thus: “software that exists with the goal of automating marketing actions. Many marketing departments have to automate repetitive tasks such as emails, social media, and other website actions. The technology of

To survive in today's marketplace, small to mid-sized businesses are increasingly using the power of company-wide goal alignment to generate strong financial performance, increase productivity and create a more cohesive culture than their larger competitors.
Each year, organizations around the world go through the ritual of performance appraisal. Many see it as the company's main event, in terms of performance management - the time at which most, if not all, feedback and guidance to employees is given. Progress is evaluated.
Rewards are distributed. Goals are set. Then that is it, until next year. Managers often open the process with a mixture of resignation, dread and the question, Why are we doing this again?
The security world is a scary place, and it’s getting scarier. Every day brings more risks, threats, customer demands, and regulations.

A survey conducted by Forrester Consulting and commissioned by IBM shows that security leaders are partnering with managed security services providers in increasing numbers—and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive.

Modern mobile applications connect systems-of-engagement (mobile apps) with systems-of-record (traditional IT) to deliver new and innovative business value. But the lifecycle for development of mobile apps is also new and different. Emerging trends in mobile development call for faster delivery of incremental features, coupled with feedback from the users of the app "in the wild". This loop of continuous delivery and continuous feedback is how the best mobile apps keep their users engaged and also produce the most compelling apps in the market.
Join us for this webcast to learn about how IBM offers a solution that enables our clients to use continuous quality as an effective means of mobile application development.
