The mobile device is part and parcel of daily life. It’s fundamentally changed the way consumers behave, and this influence has spread to the enterprise sector as well. For instance, patron-owned mobile devices have largely helped pave the way for the widespread emergence of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. Ten years ago, the idea of a company employee logging into the enterprise system while they’re on an airplane over the Atlantic would seem far-fetched, but today such behavior is relatively commonplace. Mobility is changing how we shop, work and live our daily lives.

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.

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple screens across devices. To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile, high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective online distribution channel.

The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done. New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.

The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Financial institutions (FIs) must support the channels and services that consumers demand in order to remain competitive with each other and with disruptive competitors. To that end, supporting account opening, delivering new transactional features, and facilitating payments through digital channels have become table stakes. Unfortunately, the speed and convenience that these capabilities afford is a benefit to consumers and fraudsters alike. To successfully prevent fraud while retaining the benefits of offering digital financial services, FIs must understand how fraudsters are exploiting these capabilities and fight fraud with customer experience in mind.

This RSR custom research report explores the impact of omnichannel methods on merchandising, marketing and the supply chain; specifically, what analytical capabilities address the challenges that omnichannel selling and fulfillment pose for retailers. Consumers today routinely begin their shopping journeys online, but complete their purchases in nearby stores, in their “home” stores or delivered directly to their doors. Retail analytics enables organizations to capture data from their customers' journeys. Retailers that successfully deliver relevant omnichannel experiences while gaining a more sophisticated understanding of demand (where and how it is initiated) will enhance their brands’ value and create compelling and profitable customer relationships.

While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare). While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).

Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. Financial services companies need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty. Building a 360° view of the customer can help banks grow customer retention and loyalty, upsell high margin products and provide compelling interactions. However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products. Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.
