Its purpose is to orchestrate, manage the lifecycle and provide control loop automation for 5G network services and edge computing applications in B2B settings.

How to crack customer profitability analysis
MyCostumer
August 13, 2021
Customer profitability analysis provides a method to help firms see and understand the profitability of their customers - and though it can be tough to do, it is certainly worthwhile.

Apart from the financial services industry, profiling customer profit contribution or potential for profit at the individual level is rarely practiced. Modern accountancy practice doesn’t demand this knowledge and most marketing or CRM practitioners are unsure how to go about it.

Zoho’s vision and cultural values give it a development edge, and price advantage
CX Create
July 27, 2021

ere’s a little excerpt from a detailed report, I wrote following detailed analyst briefings from Zoho’s leadership team. I’ve picked this out as I believe and certainly hope, that after this damn pandemic is over we genuinely will build back better.

It touches on values and while everyone talks about social responsibility and humanistic values, Zoho does it for real. A genuine exemplar of ethical business, which works for everyone – the customer, employees, the local communities, and much more besides.

Which companies do CX well?
LinkedIn
June 20, 2021
In my research into customer experience over the last few years, I've been struck by how few companies seem able to consistently deliver a positive customer experience that adds value to the customer, and as a result, keeps them coming back for more.

CRM can stunt your growth
CX Create
March 16, 2021
I was reminded in Bob Evans’ March 4 Cloud Wars article: Smash. Reimagine. Optimize. that the language we use to define technologies can seriously stunt your growth. It can obscure creativity and constrain thinking. In the article, Evans took aim at the acronym ERP. So loaded with baggage from the 1990s, expensive, inflexible, and taking years to implement. A world away from modern cloud ERP platforms from Oracle, SAP, and others, that are inherently flexible, adaptive, and massively transformational. Especially when it comes to developing an operational digital backbone on which to build a successful business.

The Customer Engagement Platform – part 2: Anatomy
CX Create
February 19, 2021
In part one, the beginnings, I traced the emergence of the Customer Engagement Platform (CEP). It’s an evolution from CRM as a system of record to a platform that still provides all the functional support but offers so much more. An effective CEP has the ability to orchestrate relevance dynamically throughout all customer interaction journeys. So what is under the CEP’s hood?

New value disciplines must be mastered for the digital age
CX Create
February 04, 2021
The current business environment can be described as extreme Darwinism. This Covid-19 pandemic has made that more obvious. The time available to adapt to compete successfully for customers has narrowed.

The speed of technological innovation accelerates apace and raises the bar on customer expectations. Throw the pandemic into the mix, and it is little wonder that having scrambled to support employees remotely, many firms are caught in the oncoming headlights cast by the unfolding chaos

With the Now Platform, ServiceNow brings the Service Profit Chain to life
LinkedIn
July 21, 2020
Old ideas are, at last, gaining traction. The service-profit chain is one such idea. In their 1997 book, aptly named, The Service Profit Chain, James Heskett, W. Earl Sasser JR, and Leonard A. Schlesinger, described the causal link between customer and employee satisfaction and how the former is derived from the latter and results in profitable growth. Fast-forward to 2020, and you’d be forgiven for finding echoes of the mantra, “take care of the employee, and customers will come.”

SAP’s C/4HANA name change to SAP Customer Experience illuminates its intentions
LinkedIn
July 21, 2020
In June 2018, SAP’s announcement with some fanfare of C/4HANA had echoes of its back-office ERP S/4HANA naming convention. It provided both a certain symmetry to its major enterprise applications and consolidation of various front-office CRM and commerce applications into a single brand name. So far so good for technically adept SAP watchers, but a bit opaque to the uninitiated.

Pegasystems provides a compelling rationale for a platform approach to customer engagement
LinkedIn
July 21, 2020
At Pegasystems’ virtual conference, PegaWorld iNspire 2020, CEO Alan Trefler articulated a clear and compelling case for a platform approach to digital transformation, and specifically, customer engagement. A platform approach enables businesses to address the complex omnichannel customer journey environment, that siloed approaches don’t. However, as Trefler pointed out, it calls for a new business architecture to unleash the value.

Customer Engagement Platform: the New CRM
No Jitter
June 02, 2020
CEPs can support the omnichannel journey whereas CRM apps can’t; participate in an upcoming Omdia Universe study on CEPs and share your evaluations.

Customer relationship management (CRM) applications have been around for several decades, widely adopted to provide functional support for sales, service, and marketing departments. Despite increased sophistication, such applications no longer offer an effective response to the accelerated pace of change or ever-rising customer expectations. While boardrooms across the globe talk about digital transformation, the reality is that most enterprises have struggled to make headway. Merely digitizing one department at a time does not add up to a digital transformation.

Your Enterprise as Living System
No Jitter
February 17, 2020
As change accelerates, businesses must become coherent and adaptive systems of value creation and delivery.

In today’s extreme Darwinian environment, the ability to sense change and respond effectively demands a different way to view the organization. You have to think of your business not as a collection of linear processes organized into siloed departments with the customer at the end of the line, but rather as a living system of value creation and delivery. Living systems are connected and can sense, respond, and adapt to stay relevant.

Evolving technology combinations and approaches for faster and more relevant customer-centered digital transformation

The chasm between what customers expect and what most enterprises are currently able to deliver is growing, and while that nebulous term digital transformation is discussed in most boardrooms, progress is painfully slow.

Move over CRM, it’s time for customer engagement platforms. Jeremy Cox explores some of the trends that will support the shift from CRM to CEP in 2019.

CRM in its 2019 guise will be vastly different from the old days when CRM was a system of record providing a modicum of support for sales, marketing, and service.
