But the current economic climate means even companies able to make high-dollar purchases will require more touch points to nurture them through the buying process. Today's business buyers are cautiously working to make smarter, more informed decisions.

Insurance companies are investing in interactive websites, mobile apps, and analytics software to help them optimize their processes, increase sales, improve customer service, and boost their financial standing.

Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, Technology happens. As true as Groves pat aphorism has become, its not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later. Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.

But as Rocket Fuel Director of Artificial Intelligence Michael Benisch explains in our latest whitepaper, using advanced systems to buy media programmatically doesn't have to be overwhelming. Michael will take you "under the hood" of programmatic buying and walk you through the process of how and why a consumer sees the ads they see.

Buying an ERP system that doesn't closely fit your business processes can be a costly mistake. This is particularly true if you try to fit a generic manufacturing ERP solution into a packaging/printing business environment. Reworking a non-industry specific system to meet the day-to-day operational needs of a printing/packaging operation requires significant modifications to the core product. The resulting software can end up so heavily customized that it can be difficult and very costly to maintain.

Differentiation is a business decision made at the highest levels about the company’s positioning and values–how the company adds value to a customer relationship. There are many ways a company can make those decisions, and many different approaches to doing so. The most successful companies adopt a positioning that offers sustainable competitive advantage–a way of adding value that competitors cannot easily duplicate.

One of the most important questions a company can ask itself is “what is our differentiation?” The reason is simple: it’s how you define yourself in the minds of your customers and beat the competition. Beyond that, it’s what guides business strategy as you face decisions and choices on a daily basis. A company that knows who it is and how it adds value for customers and prospects has a solid foundation for making those decisions. One that has an unclear position or, worse yet, constantly shifts position, has a difficult path in a challenging market. That’s why branding discussions need to go well beyond graphics and touch on the values and identity that are at the core of any successful company.
