Il gruppo retail e di servizi finanziari leader in Sud Africa sceglie le soluzioni CoreMedia per favorire il coinvolgimento online dei clienti

AMBURGO, Germania e LONDRA, November 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

JD Group ha in programma l'integrazione di CoreMedia CMS e CoreMedia LiveContext con SAP® Web Channel Experience Management per garantire al cliente un'esperienza multicanale completa

CoreMedia, azienda leader per il Web Content Management (WCM), ha annunciato in data odierna che JD Group, uno dei principali retailer e fornitori di servizi finanziari in Sud Africa, ha scelto CoreMedia CMS e CoreMedia LiveContext per ottimizzare i propri canali online di coinvolgimento dei clienti e sfruttare l'applicazione SAP® Web Channel Experience Management. Le soluzioni mobile stanno diventando sempre più il canale di accesso online preferito da molti clienti in Sud Africa e JD Group sarà in grado di fornire ai propri clienti esperienze online sensibili al contesto su qualsiasi canale o punto di contatto.

La scelta si basa sulla solida partnership tra CoreMedia e SAP, e sottolinea la forza della soluzione di marketing contestuale CoreMedia LiveContext utilizzata in combinazione con SAP Web Channel Experience Management 2.0. L'implementazione del progetto per il JD Group è gestita da CoreMedia in collaborazione con Ctrlroom, società di consulenza leader in Sud Africa per la fornitura di servizi di e-commerce e di strategia digitale online. Le efficaci funzionalità di CoreMedia per il coinvolgimento dei clienti permetteranno di arricchire l'esperienza online generale offerta ai clienti dalle aziende appartenenti al JD Group, in particolare attraverso canali fondamentali come quelli mobile e social, garantendo un coinvolgimento maggiore, più vendite e anche una maggiore fidelizzazione della clientela.

"L'iniziativa 'Art of Service" riguarda l'intero JD Group e ha l'obiettivo di fornire un'esperienza positiva per il cliente, sia all'interno dei nostri punti vendita sia online, attraverso una gamma crescente di canali," ha commentato Andrew Murray, Chief Information Officer del JD Group. "La nostra capacità di anticipare e riconoscere le esigenze dei nostri clienti come anche di soddisfare le loro aspettative riveste un'importanza fondamentale per questa iniziativa. Per il JD Group è essenziale avere una presenza online di rilievo ed eravamo consapevoli di avere bisogno di una soluzione per la gestione dei contenuti in grado di aggiungere un valore reale alle nostre attuali soluzioni SAP".

"Dopo la recente implementazione a livello di gruppo dell'applicazione SAP ERP per potenziare le nostre operazioni critiche di back-office, è risultato essenziale che qualsiasi soluzione si integrasse con SAP Web Channel Experience Management," ha aggiunto Murray. "CoreMedia CMS e CoreMedia LiveContext non hanno solo dimostrato di soddisfare questi requisiti, bensì si sono rivelati altamente personalizzabili e di facile utilizzo da parte dei nostri team commerciali e di marketing. L'utilizzo delle soluzioni CoreMedia per gestire e fornire efficacemente le nostre risorse multiple di contenuti in maniera contestuale contribuirà anche ad aumentare la presenza online del JD Group e le entrate da e-commerce per il retail di arredamento e i servizi finanziari, offrendo allo stesso tempo un coinvolgimento del cliente notevolmente migliorato."

Il primo grande progetto di JD Group basato su CoreMedia sarà un sito di servizi finanziari online caratterizzato da un'applicazione integrata per il finanziamento, che collega direttamente con l'implementazione dell'applicazione SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM). Anche la rapidità di implementazione ha rappresentato un fattore chiave per la decisione del JD Group e la conseguente scelta di CoreMedia, considerando che sono necessarie settimane piuttosto che mesi per lo sviluppo, la verifica e l'implementazione del sito. Il progetto sarà quindi lanciato attraverso i marchi multipli del JD Group, con caratteristiche Web che comprenderanno CoreMedia CMS e/o CoreMedia LiveContext con SAP Web Channel Experience Management.

"Siamo lieti che il JD Group abbia scelto il nostro CoreMedia CMS e CoreMedia LiveContext per la gestione dei contenuti e il marketing contestuale del suo principale progetto di e-commerce multi-brand basato sulla soluzione SAP," ha aggiunto il CEO di CoreMedia, Gerrit Kold. "I nostri strumenti editoriali altamente efficaci ma pur sempre facili da utilizzare si integrano perfettamente con SAP Web Channel Experience Management, consentendo agli utenti aziendali del JD group di accedere istantaneamente ai contenuti e pubblicarli online, indipendentemente dai canali o dai punti di contatto interessati. La soluzione CoreMedia CMS, con il suo software SAP certificato per l'integrazione con SAP NetWeaver®, conferma la nostra capacità di soddisfare i livelli più elevati di standard tecnici e di interoperabilità per i clienti importanti come il JD Group."

CoreMedia collabora con SAP per contribuire ad incrementare la fornitura di informazioni Web contestuali di fondamentale importanza per le aziende come il JD Group. CoreMedia Live Context permette alle organizzazioni che utilizzano SAP Web Channel Experience Management di supportare qualsiasi aspetto dell'esperienza dei clienti con numerose informazioni contestuali unificate su qualsiasi canale online. SAP Web Channel Experience Management 2.0 fornisce una gamma completa di funzioni di e-marketing. e-commerce e e-service per la realizzazione e l'utilizzo dei negozi online come canale redditizio di vendita, servizi e interazioni.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
Cloud is not a commodity. And no matter what you call it, computing doesn’t come out of the sky. It comes from physical hardware inside brick and mortar facilities connected by hundreds of miles of networking cable. And no two clouds are built the same way.

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT).

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years.
