In this era of cloud computing, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT), firms are testing new product offerings that combine elements of content, software, services, and hardware together. Like the innovative products themselves, the rulebook on monetizing them is evolving. Firms are shifting from one-time perpetual sales or fixed monthly subscriptions to consumption models that blend onetime, subscription, and usage-based billing (see Figure 1). CEOs recognize this shift toward business models that reflect the value of the relationship with the customer. The move to subscription and consumption business models is pervasive in almost every industry. From retailers selling subscription box sets to industrial equipment manufacturers charging based on consumption, the increase in experimentation of alternative business models is extraordinary (see Figure 2). While B2C disrupters like Netflix and Zipcar have gotten more media attention, the growth of subscription billing plat

We are living in the most revolutionary era in human communication since the invention of the printing press. For the past few years, marketers have ‘woken up’ to consumers who have the power to express their views anytime and anywhere. ‘Social’ is hot, and if nothing else, a response to this awakening. Now, the lines between paid, owned and earned media have been blurred, if not erased. Social media crosses the barrier between the three. It’s fast-paced and chaotic. We partnered with the research firm Sentient Services and surveyed more than 200 consumers about their attitudes, opinions and beliefs about brands and social media integration. The respondents come from all over the country, with all different incomes, lifestyles, and social media habits. Universally, the data supports what we’ve already seen in action: consumers want to engage with brands that integrate social media, and they prefer to do business with social brands. Let's get started!

The Dominion Group of Companies offers clients a wide range of professional services, including investment advising, trust services, wealth management, and insurance. Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the company has three main offices as well as independent affiliate offices in multiple locations throughout the United States. Dominion is a small but growing company, currently employing 40 people. A recent opportunity for expansion of the trust side of the business required Dominion to branch out from its Virginia Beach headquarters, opening an office in Florida and relocating one of the firm’s principals to that location. A top priority during that transition was maintaining effective communication, despite the distance, to limit any disruption to existing client services and workflows.

Regardless of which model you choose, BYOD needs to be carefully planned to get the full benefits without increasing costs. Decisions must also be made about whether to accept some cost increases as a trade-off for benefits that improve your bottom line. To be successful, both for the business and for employees, BYOD must balance conflicting expectations to create an equilibrium in which both parties get what they want – while also each giving something in return. Many factors will influence the true cost of your BYOD program, but the decision should not be based purely on cost considerations. Research by analyst firm Forrester found that nearly 70% of companies increased their bottom line revenues as a result of deploying BYOD programs5 – so some cost increases may well be a price worth paying.

Agile integration — combining integration technologies, Agile delivery techniques, and cloud-native platforms to improve speed and security of software delivery — is a critical foundation for successful digital transformation. The pace of digital innovation and disruption continues to accelerate, driving the need for faster change to business models, processes, and applications. Firms that can quickly reconfigure and reconnect old and new applications have the advantage, and those with slow integration processes are at serious risk of losing customers. An Agile combination of integration and custom development is needed to meet the customer’s expectations and avoid losing market share to competitors that do put the customer first.1 For this study, we assessed the differences between successful and less successful Agile integration and app delivery strategies, why some firms can change their business faster, and what makes one integration strategy better than another.

The business world is entering an age of the digital “haves” and the digital “have-nots.” In fact, research firm Forrester anticipates a growing “digital crisis” in its 2018 predictions, noting that 60% of CIOs and other executives it surveyed say they’re behind in their digital transformations. Meanwhile, Forrester expects one in five CEOs will fail to act on digital initiatives and put their firms in serious jeopardy as a result. Savvy organizations are embracing cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and other transformative technologies to solve meaningful business problems and achieve their strategic priorities. Everyone else is getting left behind. Nowhere is this fork-in-the-road moment more apparent than in how enterprise IT teams deliver and manage services, to employees and customers alike.
