Digital technology has completely
changed how we discover products, engage with brands and share our
experiences with others. Amazon revolutionized customer feedback
and product reviews. Social media transformed the way people share
word-of-mouth recommendations, connecting shoppers to off-the-cuff
opinions, compelling visual content and real-life experiences from peers
and influencers they follow and admire. Sure, TV, radio and print ads are
still part of the mix but they hardly carry the same weight as they did in
years passed. This statistic speaks volumes: 92% of consumers trust
peer recommendations over branded advertising. With the advent of
social media and digital technology, brands have a powerful new tool

DevOps (short for development and operations), like most
new approaches, is only a buzzword for many people.
Everyone talks about it, but not everyone knows what it is.
In broad terms, DevOps is an approach based on lean and agile
principles in which business owners and the development, operations,
and quality assurance departments collaborate to deliver
software in a continuous manner that enables the business to
more quickly seize market opportunities and reduce the time
to include customer feedback. Indeed, enterprise applications are
so diverse and composed of multiple technologies, databases,
end-user devices, and so on, that only a DevOps approach will be
successful when dealing with these complexities. Opinions differ
on how to use it, however.
Some people say that DevOps is for practitioners only; others say
that it revolves around the cloud. IBM takes a broad and holistic
view and sees DevOps as a business-driven software delivery
approach — an approach that takes a new or en
1.Meet the new consumer
The migration to mobile and social media will challenge — and change — everything we know about consumer marketing.
2. Who owns your brand?
Brand equity can no longer be bought. Online reviews now generate total market transparency for location-based businesses. Reviews tilt the balance of branding power away from companies and into the hands of customers.
3. The battle for brick-and-mortar customers is won or lost on the social web. To win, marketers must actively enlist customers as online advocates. Those who scale online review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility and more business at street level.
4. “Dark data” provides priceless operational insights
Vast amounts of unstructured, unmined sentiment data on social media provides feedback about the customer experience that you can filter using thematic analysis and use to improve operations at the national or location level.

Management (ORM) — and the practice has become indispensable for any
In 2017, review sources proliferated, consumers became more savvy about the validity of online
reviews, and the position of Chief Experience Officer started to gain traction among locationbased
organizations. ORM and SEO became increasingly intertwined as Google refined its search
algorithms with a strong emphasis on reviews and star ratings.
This year, expect to see these four trends move to the forefront:
1) Google will extend its dominance in online review volume and consumer exposure, eclipsing all
other specialty sites.
2) SEO will be reinvented as user-generated reviews weigh more heavily in search rankings.
3) The voice of the customer will no longer be siloed across disconnected categories.
4) Consumer feedback from reviews and social media will drive operational improvements.
Since the 1990s, the customer relationship management (CRM) concept has been embraced by the business world as a way to forge, maintain, and improve bonds with customers. Previously, many companies focused mainly on gathering consumer data for their own use. However, once businesses began to understand the value of allowing customers to dialog about their needs, they began implementing more systems that invited customer feedback.
