Content Analytics' VP Kenji Gjovig: Chum in the Water

Content management is all about making sure that a product item page “has all of the information that a customer needs to buy an item or have a good experience with it afterwards,” said Kenji Gjovig, VP of partnerships and business development at Content Analytics. “What goes into content management varies between retailers. A content management system has the ability to set up new items, post images and video, and create a robust title and detailed item description. Ratings and reviews are really important.”

Salesforce Parallelism

For several years now, Salesforce has built distinct product lines that all work off the same platform and can integrate in interesting ways. There are product lines for the enterprise, small and mid-sized businesses, business-to-business firms and business-to-consumer operations — and probably some others that I haven’t considered. For instance, the AppExchange contains a wealth of apps for very specialized types of front-office business, as well as some back-office apps, like accounting.

Zuora VP Matt Darrow: The Intelligence of the Subscription Model

“We think of ‘subscription’ broadly,” said Matt Darrow, VP and general manager of product at Zuora. “It’s when companies do business with customers with whom they have a known relationship, and those relationships are sticky. The subscription model is great for engagement because companies know that in order to be successful they need to deliver ongoing services that keep providing value over and over again, because naturally clients can turn off their service and go somewhere else if they’re not getting the outcome that they expect.”

CPQ: Boost Selling Performance and Accuracy

They say it can take a product idea 10 years to go from concept to mass-market appeal but that might be only an optimist’s viewpoint. Some of the best ideas in CRM right now have been marinating for at least that long — and some for much longer. Two great examples are analytics and CPQ, which companies like Oracle, Salesforce and others have embraced with passion. Interestingly, each technology has traversed a path that needed other technologies to become fully mature. “Analytics” is an old term for what we now call “machine learning.”
