Everything changes. We are in a period of significant shifts in companies—even entire industries—demonstrated in rankings, like the Fortune Global 500. For the last century, these periods of volatility have been driven by a combination of technological change and capital expansion.1 There is obvious competition between direct, traditional market segments, but digital disruption also opens up the ability to compete and gain revenue in new areas. For example, a movie streaming service like Netflix also launches a community around the software it created to run its services, or an online retailer like Amazon also innovates with public cloud management. Innovation requires more than a slick customer user interface (UI). There has to be a foundation of technology, processes, and culture that allow an organization to be flexible, to build on its existing knowledge, and to incorporate new ideas. At a strategic level, today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different

The Internet of Things (IoT) unleashes valuable business insights through data that’s gathered at every level of a retail organization. With IoT and data analytics, retailers now have the capability to gather insight into customer behavior, offer more personalized experiences, achieve better inventory accuracy, create greater supply chain efficiencies, and so much more. But with data comes great risk. A recent report by security firm Thales and 451 Research found that 43 percent of retailers have experienced a data breach in the past year, with a third reporting more than one breach.1 Intel® technology-based gateways and Asavie, a provider of next-gen enterprise mobility management and IoT connectivity solutions, offer a security connectivity solution that minimizes the effort and cost to businesses to ensure safety from cybersecurity attacks.

The first event in the Partnering with Certainy Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." Trends like IoT are driving customer experience expectations in a way that demands resiliency in local edge environments. As a result, we’re seeing a rise of edge computing (compute power coming out of the cloud and into the access layer). Customer demands manifest themselves differently based on things like company size and segment. For example, a retail customer’s business imperatives might look different from a doctor’s office. But one thing remains constant: A standardized, redundant, and repeatable physical infrastructure can protect the availability of these now-critical access-layer IT assets. APC by Schneider Electric has: The solutions you need to deliver a standardized, redundant, & repeatable infrastructure to your customers The tools you need to configure them, The alliances & certifications you trust & rely on, The program to make it profitable. Fill out your information and click "Register" to watch the kick off our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, “Customer Demands at the Edge: Always On, Always Connected.” This webinar originally aired on October 5th, 2017.

In this era of cloud computing, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT), firms are testing new product offerings that combine elements of content, software, services, and hardware together. Like the innovative products themselves, the rulebook on monetizing them is evolving. Firms are shifting from one-time perpetual sales or fixed monthly subscriptions to consumption models that blend onetime, subscription, and usage-based billing (see Figure 1). CEOs recognize this shift toward business models that reflect the value of the relationship with the customer. The move to subscription and consumption business models is pervasive in almost every industry. From retailers selling subscription box sets to industrial equipment manufacturers charging based on consumption, the increase in experimentation of alternative business models is extraordinary (see Figure 2). While B2C disrupters like Netflix and Zipcar have gotten more media attention, the growth of subscription billing plat

For the second year, we asked 500 panelists their feelings and perceptions regarding the state of brickand- mortar retail. The results may surprise you. Our research found that, although sales associates are generally viewed neutrally, specific sectors such as consumer electronics stores and momand- pop shops have a positive perception. Consumers seek out sales associates who are educated and able to help them make an informed purchase. Our results also confirmed prior reporting1 into the growing fluidity between e-commerce and traditional retail. More than 75 percent of our panelists reported frequently browsing online, then purchasing the product in-store. Sales associates who are educated about the products in their store are more likely to sell more. Brands that ensure that their sales teams have the proper product knowledge maximize the likelihood that consumers will purchase from them.

When Q4 rolls around, people start hanging Christmas lights, planning family gettogethers, stocking up on booze for said family get-togethers — and buying gifts. It’s true, the last quarter of the year is great for sipping eggnog, but it’s also when big and small businesses alike make or break their revenue goals, often making 20-30 percent of their annual sales, according to the National Retail Federation. With the average holiday shopper purchasing 16 gifts during the season, wintertime is salestime. We’ve compiled the 10 things brands and retailers can do to boost revenue during the holiday season — and keep customers coming back for more.

The Internet of Things enables retailers to do three basics better and faster: 1) Sensing who customers are and what they’re doing, 2) Understanding customer behavior and preferences, and 3)Acting on that insight to create a more engaging customer experience. - There are high-potential IoT applications in supply chain, in “smart store” operations, and especially in providing an engaging experience to the “connected customer.” IoT data can anticipate where the customer is headed and how to meet her there. - Much of the IoT ground, in both data management and analytics, may be unfamiliar. Retailers and their IT organizations have to be realistic about the technological challenges, their own capabilities, and where they need assistance. - To differentiate through IoT, focus on the analytics. Devices and their data — and even their platforms — are commodities. Advantage goes to the retailer who does the most with the data to engage the connected customer.

The corporate end-user community provides vital cogs in the wheel of a healthy organization. Users include the call centers, the retail assistants, the service desks, the sales offices and the people who deal with order processing. Yet many of these users are often faced with outdated user interfaces (UIs), and struggle to cope with the levels of efficiency and throughput needed. Worse still, these old systems typically only run on a connected terminal - or ‘green screen’ - but more and more these days, users need web and mobile access. Micro Focus Rumba+ dramatically improves business efficiency by providing a better user experience. It can also now be accessed from a variety of devices. Let’s take a look at five top reasons to move to Rumba+.
