Trends analyst Altimeter defines digital transformation as “the realignment of, or new investment in, technology and business models to more effectively engage digital customers at every touch point in the customer experience lifecycle.” Note that this lifecycle encompasses the entire progression of customer interaction, from consideration of a product through its purchase and use on through the maintenance of loyalty surrounding that product. Simply put, business success in a digital age re

What Tools Are In Your Marketing Wallet?

My colleague, Beth Martin, Marketing Director, Digital Platform Solutions at Perficient recently wrote a blog post called What’s in Your Marketing Wallet? In her post she talked about the evolving role of marketers and how the marketing landscape is changing. As marketers we are no longer just the creatives with the catchy headline … we need to be the strategists, creatives, writers, technologists and data scientists to be at the forefront of customer engagement.  We need to be sav

Digital Transformation and The Impact of Customer Experience
Fri, Apr 22nd 2016 7:44a   Kate Tuttle
Customer experience, or CX, is the sum of all interactions a customer can have with a brand. The sum of these interactions shapes your brand and can decide the fate of your business.

Josh Bernoff of Forrester Research described it this way: “More than any other factor, customer experiences determine whether companies thrive and profit, or struggle and fade.” The result is that CX

Marin Richeson seems to be on a roll in the Life Sciences blog with multiple topics on the implications of digital to Pharma.  I’ve talked to more than one Life Sciences firm who is rethinking their entire approach to customer experience and moving towards addressing a full journey.  What makes it more fun for these firms is that they need to address a digital channel and do it globally with many different consumers.

Brands Must Move to Digital Experience
Wed, Apr 20th 2016 8:53p   Michael Porter
I read an article on CMO.com about a variety of marketing execs highlighting the needs to move to a digital experience.  Now this was from the recent Ad Age Digital Conference so keep in mind that the main focus is still on ads but at least it’s on ads that provide an experience.  In reality, a digital experience would include much more than that like: Useful content rather than just ads collaborative sites to gain information and answer questions (relevant to some but not all of you)

Modern business moves faster than ever, with more access than ever to innovative hardware and software solutions. To counteract the competitive landscape, savvy business executives must do what they can to adjust to changing climates and remain adaptable through technology and strategy. As a result of these changes, many businesses are considering cloud computing solutions to augment their day-to-day activities.

Escaping the Digital Media Click Trap
Wed, Apr 20th 2016 7:00a   Michael Porter
I ran across an interesting article at the Information.com site.  It’s about how using ‘tricks’ to generate more views ultimately fails.   The main target are the news generators and the examples they use include Mashable and BuzzFeed but the lessons learned are completely relevant to anyone trying to create a great customer experience.  A lot of times when we discuss digital transformation with clients, this is what digital marketers are thinking in order of importance: Di
