The headwinds facing traditional and online retailers in 2017 are numerous and well documented. Chief among the challenges: a sustained assault on established business models driven by changing consumer behavior and the competitive might of e-commerce giant Amazon. Large big-box players, such as Walmart and Target, are responding to the threat - and embracing the opportunity of e-commerce - by boosting online spending by hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars annually. Yet even the largest and most well-resourced players can’t simply spend their way to success. Competing with Amazon and adjusting to the changing demands of consumers means taking a hard look at the engines driving e-commerce and digital marketing operations, scouring for missed opportunities, and investing in the technologies that will fuel the innovations of tomorrow.

Every day, demanding customers, unforeseen competition, and disruptive new technologies hammer home that we have entered the age of the customer, where established business operations no longer work. Yet, most marketing functions still rely on decades-old methods that undermine their ability to create post-digital brand experiences and help their firms become customer-focused. Smart CMOs recognize that it is time to pivot their marketing function around the customer, rather than transactions, sales, their brand, or day-to-day operations. In March 2018, Adobe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the link between email innovation and customer obsession. To explore this topic, Forrester conducted an online survey with 256 US consumers who use personal email and 260 marketing technology and strategy decision makers at US companies with 500 or more employees.

Accounts Payable is a fundamental activity for nearly all businesses. Pick any enterprise and you can bet there is an AP function at the heart of financial operations. The obligation to pay off short-term debt is one that every company must satisfy. But more than that, the process to do it must be efficient and productive. If you get behind on your obligations you risk missing important financial discounts, defaulting with creditors, and damaging your reputation with suppliers and stakeholders. CFOs face the challenges associated with Accounts Payable…and it’s easy to lose sleep. As other areas of business and commerce have become more and more paperless, the accounts payable process in most organizations remains mired in paper copies and manual workflow. The result is an often costly and people-intensive process that leaves companies vulnerable to competitors and financial executives with a growing unease over the inherent inefficiencies.

However, IT departments that are able to deliver solutions for business needs and support business goals have moved beyond managing siloed systems. Adopting a more efficient model of IT service and systems is the key to freeing IT to improve business operations. Reaching that level of efficiency through “do-it-yourself” efforts requires an immense amount of time and expense up front. What if someone has already pre-engineered, pre-tested, and optimized a perfect solution for your IT needs? See the difference a converged system can make. Download this whitepaper now.

With a proven track record of results demonstrating that organizations can increase profitability with business analysts applying optimization to many types of business problems, FICO’s proven development methodology is giving organizations the confidence to extend optimization practices across their enterprises.

In global, multicultural organizations, simply expecting all employees to speak one common language, such as English, marginalizes the potential impact of international talent and leaves monolingual staff ill-equipped to help the organization compete effectively in a globalized environment. In an increasingly global economy, U.S. companies will perform better by hiring individuals who can communicate in foreign languages and helping current employees develop language skills. Forbes Insights, in conjunction with Rosetta Stone, surveyed more than 100 executives at large U.S. businesses (annual revenues of more than $500 million) and found that language barriers have a broad and pervasive impact on business operations. The survey found that foreign language skills will be even more vital in the future and that language abilities can help executives advance their careers, speed overseas expansion, and boost corporate—as well as personal—success.

Today’s financial services organizations recognize that success starts with strong relationships built on trust and transparency. In a competitive market, a company’s employees can make or break these crucial relationships through their interactions with customers. That’s why businesses — from wealth management and insurance firms to banks and credit unions — are investing in automated workforce solutions to help them attract, engage, and retain top talent while controlling costs and driving exceptional service. Managing a diverse workforce of exempt and nonexempt employees across back-office, contact center, and frontline operations is no easy feat.

Digital Requires a New Level of Insight and Control Digital strategies have caused business executives to intensify their scrutiny of how technology affects bottom line performance. With a growing emphasis on differentiating the customer experience in highly competitive markets, these executives want to understand how their IT systems affect everything from brand perception to customer acquisition and loyalty. 3 | A Guide to Intelligent Operations Meanwhile, those same demanding business leaders lack appreciation and patience for the complexity of today’s digital technology environment. While applications and user experiences are simpler and more intuitive, the backend processing, application interdependencies, and underlying infrastructure are more complex than ever, even in light of the benefits of abstraction, virtualization, and cloud computing (see Figure 1.)
