  • Accelerating Digital Marketing

    The hype around digital marketing has led to many reports that CMOs will spend more than CIOs on IT. The implications of this hypothesis come with the same air of confidence: that CIOs are destined to start working for CMOs, or that CIO– CMO conflict is inevitable. These predictions greatly overestimate likely technology spending by CMOs, and more importantly, they are based on a misunderstanding of what CMOs really want. In this study, we debunk these myths and show how CIOs can play a critical role in accelerating digital marketing.

  • Analytics across the ecosystem

    Analytics is a key enabler for life sciences and healthcare organizations to create better outcomes for patients, customers and other stakeholders across the entire healthcare ecosystem. While almost two-thirds of organizations across the healthcare ecosystem have analytics strategies in place, this research from IBM shows that only a fifth are driving analytics adoption across the enterprise. The key barriers are a lack of data management capabilities and skilled analysts, as well as poor organizational change management. To develop and translate insights into actions that enhance outcomes, organizations will need to collaborate across an expanding ecosystem.

  • CIO Thought Leadership: The Sum of all brands

    The convergence of market volatility, the empowered worker, globalization and accelerating technological developments is making it harder than ever for organisations to maintain a sustainable advantage. Gone are the days when businesses created a unique selling proposition and lived off it for years on end. Today, at best one can only hope for a temporary advantage. Today reinvention feels more like a daily habit than a major event. Customers are in the driving seat and, as such will simply migrate to where they are best served. Acquiring new customers is very expensive so organisational survival is dependent on the organisation’s ability to retain its customers. Consequently customer-centricity must lie at the heart of the organisation’s strategy. This has significant implications on every aspect of the organisation’s operations.

  • Code Halos – How the digital lives of People, Things, and Organisations are Changing

    Code Halo refers to the data that accumulates around people, devices, and organizations—data that’s robust, powerful, and continually growing in richness and complexity. The halos contain the code that companies, brands, employers, and partners can use to enhance their understanding of people or objects more deeply. Decoding the information within that invisible field, teasing out the insights, and creating new commercial models does not happen automatically or easily. But every employee, product, building, and organization should have a Code Halo, and this book is going to explain how and why. While technology makes Code Halos possible, they transcend constructs like IT or Big Data or analytics. Code Halos make meaningful connections between people, organizations, and devices in a business context. Extracting meaning from Code Halos—and applying that understanding to business strategies and practices—is a new and essential yet not clearly or widely understood management skill. This book’s extract’s purpose is to provide a fact-based understanding of the Code Halo phenomenon and outline a practical approach to improving performance by harnessing their power.

  • Analytics exploration – today and tomorrow

    Existing analytics approaches meet point needs for specific roles within an organisation. However, how analysis is carried out, and the roles of people who will be carrying out the analysis, will need to adapt dynamically to meet the organisation’s changing needs. The analysis of a blend of multiple different data sources will help to add distinct business value to an organisation. This report will be of interest to those tasked with ensuring that a suitable data management and analysis platform is implemented within their organisation to provide a strategic, flexible, long-term analytics platform.

  • Gartner: Deriving value from Big Data for CRM

    Big data presents many CRM opportunities, but to be effective and derive business value, customer insights generated by well-managed and analysed big data must be put into action. During the next few years, most companies will struggle to realise customer relationship management (CRM) business value from big data strategies. The first key to success will be identifying relevant customer processes across marketing, sales, customer service and e-commerce that can benefit from actionable, big data customer insights. Once a customer process has been identified as a big data opportunity, CRM leaders working with CIOs should follow four critical steps to derive business value:

  • FM, IT and Data Centres

    Are Facilities and IT data centre managers implacable enemies, or is it just a need for different priorities and emphases on work that seem to get in the way? Often, Quocirca finds that an organisation has one team – facilities management (FM) – looking after the physical facility of the data centre, with another – information technology (IT) – looking after the servers, storage and network equipment, along with the software running within it. This can lead to problems where priorities clash, or where a lack of common language or views of a problem can stop things from happening.

  • Optimising the data warehouse

    Dealing with large volumes of mixed data to give better business insights. The data warehouse is struggling to keep pace with an organisation’s data needs. Extraction, transformation and loading (ETL) tasks are being stretched beyond their capabilities, and organisations wedded to maintaining a standard ETL, relational data approach are finding that they have to cut corners in order to get some level of results from their analysis and reporting. However, a different approach can add a lot more value – and make the data warehouse work again.
