The value of knowing: Build a trusted analytics foundation

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jul 09, 2018
As the information age matures, data has become the most powerful resource enterprises have at their disposal. Businesses have embraced digital transformation, often staking their reputations on insights extracted from collected data. While decision-makers hone in on hot topics like AI and the potential of data to drive businesses into the future, many underestimate the pitfalls of poor data governance. If business decision-makers can’t trust the data within their organization, how can stakeholders and customers know they are in good hands? Information that is not correctly distributed, or abandoned within an IT silo, can prove harmful to the integrity of business decisions. In search of instant analytical insights, businesses often prioritize data access and analysis over governance and quality. However, without ensuring the data is trustworthy, complete and consistent, leaders cannot be confident their decisions are rooted in facts and reality

What's Next for Your Store, Your Shopper, and Your Business? Expert Insights on the Future of Retail

Published By: Group M_IBM Q3'19     Published Date: Jun 24, 2019
If a retailer views “Buy Online, Pickup In-Store” as purely e-commerce, they’re losing. Each transaction in which customers pickup in-store is a chance to add value to the relationship. Whether that means speed, cross-selling, or a unique bit of customer service that amplifies the visit, BOPIS plays just as important a role as the rest of the brick-and-mortar experience. Some trips may not translate to additional purchases right then and there, but the way a retailer handles pickup can dictate how the customer feels about the brand. To get the most out of BOPIS, retailers should ask themselves a few important questions.
