As digital transformation accelerates, the opportunity to engage customers digitally has never been greater — but so has the threat of not delivering great customer experiences. In order for customer insights professionals to compete, the use of customer understanding to optimize experiences at scale must be at the heart of all digital transformation initiatives. Digital intelligence provides a vision and approach that captures a holistic view of the customer in order to optimize digital interactions, engagements, and experiences. During his talk James McCormick will describe the vision and need for digital intelligence; the approach needed to make it a strategic initiative, and ultimately, how it will provide a competitive advantage.

Businesses understand more than ever that they depend on data for insight and competitive advantage. And when it comes to data, they have always wanted easy access and fast performance. But how is the situation different now? Today, organizations want those elements and more. They want IT to strip away the limitations of time with faster deployment of new databases and applications. They want IT to reduce the limitations of distance by giving remote and branch offices better and more reliable access. And in a global world where business never stops, they want IT to ensure data availability around the clock. If IT can deliver databases and applications faster, on a more automated and consistent basis, to more locations without having to commit onsite resources, IT will be free to focus on more strategic projects.

Machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) are two of the hottest terms out there today for utilities. Both have the power to create an increasingly autonomous grid that can eventually handle billions of endpoints on utility networks, but the industry may not be maximizing the benefit of these disruptive innovations, nor adequately leveraging the connection between the two of them.

The Internet of Things (IoT) – devices and sensors connected to computing systems and networks – has received enormous attention in the last few years. The attention is due, in part, to the proliferation of connected devices, from about a million in the early 1990s to more than five billion today. In addition, the technology for connecting the devices has become more affordable and easier to integrate. The result is that IoT is helping to digitize more and more business processes, from the factory floor to tracking shipments across oceans. Digitized processes are providing a continuous stream of digital data. By analyzing the data stream, businesses can refine their processes by better understanding how those processes are performing, identifying possible issues sooner and uncovering areas for improvement.

Imagine that you are in a meeting with several department heads discussing issues around enrollment. As people begin to share their thoughts, you quickly realize that each person in the room is working from conflicting information – and everyone thinks their information is correct. The group spends most of the meeting arguing over whose data and reports are correct rather than understanding the problem and making decisions. Sound familiar? When organizations have their data fragmented across many systems and departments, these situations are all too common. Without a single, trusted source of truth and easyto- use tools to interpret and understand the data, conversations are limited by everyone’s departmental perspectives and resources.

Digital transformation has become a top mandate for almost every IT and business leader. The ZK Research 2015 IT Priorities Survey found that 79% of businesses currently have a digital transformation initiative in progress (Exhibit 1). In the digital era, competitive advantage is no longer determined by which company has the best products or even the best people. Market leadership is based on an organization’s ability to analyze information, gain insights and make fast decisions to capitalize on market transitions. One important step in the journey to becoming a digital organization is to transform into an agile business—and it is impossible to do so without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology in 2015 to make IT more agile, according to ZK Research.

The use of analytics will define the successful midmarket business of the next decade, just as it will define the successful larger organization in this information age. The past decade has seen rapid change in the business climates with an explosion of global competition and economic uncertainty. Despite this, many midmarket companies have thrived by using their size and agility as a competitive advantage. Certainly they have fewer resources than large corporations who are able to invest large sums in IT. However, small yachts can turn and adjust their course much quicker than large cruise ships. The same came be said for midmarket companies. The most successful organizations are ones that can react the quickest to changes in the market place. Midmarket companies can take advantage of their smaller size by being more agile and quicker to change, or even reinvent themselve
