In order to be able to do this, retailers need to put themselves in a position where they have a deeper and broader understanding of not just the needs and wants of their customers, but also their motivators and triggers. IT Leaders realize that they need to invest in powerful analytics programs that allow them to leverage the wealth of client data they are capturing, find the relevant patterns and insights, and use those to aggressively attack the market and establish dominance.

Takeaways:

  • Successful retailers have long used data analytics to ensure a competitive edge relative to their peers
  • Data is becoming more ubiquitous and the sources by which it is derived are growing exponentially
  • Personalization of experience is a strong indicator of relationship success, but can only be achieved by truly understanding the client through data analytics

To drive greater focus and flexibility in retail capability, retailers are investing heavily in customer data capture and customer data analytics capabilities, whether from traditional loyalty programs, online data capture, or in-store mobile tracking. As more and more personable data is collected or created however, the specter of customer privacy issues begin to loom larger and larger. Enterprises need to take a long hard look at the information they are capturing and the manner in which it is being used to determine whether the potential value outweighs the potential risk, and whether the incentive offer to the customer is sufficient to overcome any reticence on their part.

Takeaways:

  • Data privacy is not a show-stopper; customers are willing to share personal information if the payoff is sufficiently worthwhile
  • Not all information gathering needs to be personal and in many cases anonymous aggregated data can be just as instructive, certainly about trends
  • Where information gathering does get personal, opt-in with balancing opt-back-out requirements are essential

Takeaways:

  • Visualizations continue to rely on data, understanding good data quality is critical
  • Identify superlative data quality behind visualizations
  • Develop insight on the direction of the 'big data' visualization and how they can impact enterprises

On the surface hybrid clouds seem to offer the best of both worlds by marrying the best of public and private, and minimizing their worst. But this isn?t necessarily the case and in many ways hybrid can be seen as nothing more than a compromise solution that compromises all the benefits of the cloud. The key for enterprises when selecting a cloud model is to look at the big picture and build a strategy that leverages strengths, minimizes weaknesses, and is built for the long term.

Takeaways:

  • The promise of the public cloud lies in its flexibility, cost-effectiveness and ease of use but it brings with it a loss of control
  • Private clouds all but guarantee data privacy and protection but carry significantly bigger price tags and negative impacts of accessibility
  • Hybrid clouds allow enterprises to mix and match to get the right cost vs. security balance but ratchet management complexity up to all new levels

The need to streamline and simplify existing complex processes through automation is key. Fortunately technology has advanced to allow for this level of automation, however this means that these advanced network platforms must be adopted, and just as importantly, that internal workflows must be re-imagined to take advantage of these capabilities.
