Mobile Marketing @ SES Jakarta & WiFi based Location Context

SES ( soon to be called ClickZ) hosted a Digital Marketing Conference in Jakarta this week which is the meeting point for digital marketing and advertising professionals in the AP region.
Here the  latest mobile marketing trends, best practices, new technologies have been discussed and presented, including Cisco’s CMX capabilities as part of meet the experts session called “Context marketing using Wifi location services”.

SESjakartaSome interesting observation and ideas being discussed include:

Multi-Channel Attribution modeling:
While online marketing investments are more measurable compared to conventional media such as television, however tracking what leads to sales conversion is becoming increasingly complicated.
The simple measures of last click or first click attribution are not fully meaningful to represent today’s omni-channel ultra-connected consumer. Therefore it’s not surprising that multi-channel tools and attribution modeling are one of the hot topics in digital analytics.

Data to underpin a successful digital marketing strategy:
Increasingly consumers are connected all the time – and with that every day around the world, connected consumers are being wooed by offers of better prices, better deals and better service.
How can marketers compete…often the only defence they think they have to fire back at competitors is to match those deals and price cuts.
However data is key, as more information about customers becomes more plentiful and more detailed, and as customers become more interactive with the companies they buy from, the competitive marketing landscape is becoming radically different. For many advanced organisations it is using data to deliver insight and analysis gives them a competitive edge to keep ahead of the pack. Read More »

Can You Guess Your ROI on Your Secure Access?

No need to guess now!

Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the business value and potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by implementing Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE)—a leading secure access solution. This is available in the recently published Forrester TEI (Total Economic Impact) Research. Four customers were interviewed for this study and covered use cases for policy-governed, unified access across the following use case scenarios: guest services; BYOD; full access across wired, wireless, and VPN; and policy networking. The calculation was based on a composite organization of 10,000 employees that reflected the four interviewed customers from higher education, utilities, and financial services markets.

Benefits were 75 percent reduction in support calls related to network issues and improved compliance reducing data exposure, breaches, and potential regulatory/remediation costs that could add up to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. Most recently, the Ponemon Institute Live Threat Intelligence Impact Report 2013 indicated that US$10 million is the average amount spent in the past 12 months to resolve the impact of exploits. The benefit of secure access cannot be taken lightly.

Now is the time to refresh to Cisco UCS!

Intel estimates1 that one-third of the servers in production are more than four years old. At first, one might think that it is great to get this much service out of a capital investment, but the operational costs to run these outdated servers would pay for a complete technology refresh increasing performance and reliability while reducing total costs. How is this possible? With the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v2 product family and Cisco’s Unified Computing System. Read More »

Cisco UCS vRack on Full Display at PASS Summit

Cisco is proud to be a Platinum sponsor and exhibitor at PASS Summit this year. If you aren’t familiar with PASS Summit, it “is the world’s largest, most-focused, and most-intensive conference for Microsoft SQL Server and BI professionals.”

Gary Serda has done an excellent job in detailing what the Cisco UCS team will be sharing with attendees in his blog post Guide to Cisco at the PASS Summit, so I wanted to highlight our 3D, interactive vRack of our Unified Computing System which is always a highlight at trade shows and will be on display at PASS Summit.
