Fulfilling the Omnichannel Shopping Imperative


The omnichannel approach to customer contact has become a byword in customer service, but retailers need to do more to make it happen, based on a recent study. Researchers tested 57 metrics across desktop, mobile and in-store buying touchpoints to evaluate the end-to-end omnichannel experience at 30 popular and growing retailers. They focused on four major categories: fulfillment and inventory; personalization; pricing consistency; and in-store signage. Here’s the problem: E-commerce absolutely is killing brick-and-mortar stores.

Oracle's Strategery


Watching Oracle’s cloud strategy roll out has given me renewed respect for its approach to the market. As a company that has been public for a long time, Oracle has displayed all the warmth of an anaconda. I have friends there, and they are not anacondas, but I hope they know what I mean. Oracle knows its business and it’s making money, and it does it unabashedly, so I can understand criticisms of its pricing model or high maintenance fees. However, another side of the business is coming into sharp focus as the cloud rollout gains momentum.

Intel formally kills its tick-tock approach to processor development

Intel's D1X Fab
The tick-tock approach ensured Intel was never attempting to build a brand-new CPU architecture at the same time it ramped a new process node, and gave the company almost a decade of steady (if slowing) progress. That era is over.

Ramping Up Tech Could Give Retailers a CX Edge


Despite all the talk about the customer journey, the increasing use of CRM, the omnichannel approach, and the seamless customer experience, stores still don’t have technology down pat for the holiday rush, according to the “2015 Connected Shoppers Report” Salesforce released last month. “Although major retailers have made investments, many are still dealing with legacy and disconnected systems that don’t recognize the virtual customer from the in-store one,” said analyst Rebecca Wettemann.

Reports: Federal IT Managers Should Look Forward, Not Back


The dynamic world of information technology calls for a future-oriented approach to IT management. However, government agencies too often may be looking backward rather than forward with respect to how they operate IT systems, especially when it comes to investing huge sums of taxpayer money into those resources. Two recent assessments of government IT make the point. While each report focuses on a different aspect of IT management, the reports reinforce each other in stressing the need for government IT staffs to break with past practices.
