AmazonFresh set to expand?

AmazonFresh set to expand? | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
After five years, Amazon’s local grocery-delivery service remains in limited test mode, but the Internet giant recently has made some moves that could set the stage for expansion.


“It is a very convenient service, but picking, packing and delivering grocery orders is expensive,” said former technology Vice President Nadia Shouraboura, who left Amazon last year to create Hointer, a robot-operated clothing store in Seattle’s University District.

“Just like apparel, the grocery business is both large and ripe for innovation, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see Amazon be very persistent and patient,” she said. “Jeff always thinks long-term.”

Farid Mheir's insight:

I've said this before: looks like Amazon will use grocery delivery to put trucks on the road and offer same-day or next-day delivery while bypassing UPS-FedEx and other carriers altogether. This will both bring down its costs (delivery accounts for 10-15% of the online costs) but also may prove that having a physical store presence is not required for online pure plays. We'll see...

Farid Mheir's insight:

I learned today in LaPresse+ that Associated Press now relies on software from Automated Insight to write its financial stories on corporate earnings. Stories are, for now, human verified before release but this soon will disappear.

Also of interest is that AI provides solutions to automate redaction of texts in multiple domains, from sports to website analytics (my picture above). I initially assumed this is along the same lines as the automated writing that the weather service has been using for years. But in fact it is not, as it appears to spit out text that appears to be written by a human, not by a machine. It draws from Big Data analysis to extract meaningful information that it then writes about. The AI website provides few examples that appear very "professional".


AI now advertises a "marketing" tool that specializes in the creation of marketing material. I assume this will mean more personalized "emails" in my inbox that will go beyond greeting me by name and also merge data that is global (the lettuce is on special this week) to the very personal (you should consider buying more fruits and vegetables and to encourage you we extend a 25% discount for the next 30 days on all our fresh produce section).


Whether this is good news or bad, I'll let you decide...

Google Strikes Smart Contact Lens deal to track Diabetes and Cure Farsightedness

Google Strikes Smart Contact Lens deal to track Diabetes and Cure Farsightedness | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
With Glass and Android Wear, Google has already invested a lot of time and resources into developing the next-generation of wearables, but it's another of its eye-focused projects that has today received its first major boost.

Via TechinBiz
Farid Mheir's insight:

Strangely I never wrote about this but it certainly is worth a mention because Google has now made very strong moves towards "atoms and not bits" as Sergei Brin put it a few days ago, stating that Google has invested in search (bits) for a long time and is now complementing its focus to physical devices (atoms) such as the self driving car or here the contact lens.


This story is of particular importance as it shows that Google is not in the business of making contact lenses (or cars) but providing the R&D to disrupt industries that are not making the radical shifts they can by using digital technology.

When I first started writing about the role of a chief marketing technologist in 2008, it was, at best, a niche subject. A hybrid marketing and technology executive? What kind of crazy, chimerical beast was that? But six years later, with marketing increasingly viewed as a technology-powered discipline, hybrid marketing technologist roles are growing rapidly. …

Farid Mheir's insight:

10$/month for 600k books, sounds like a good deal to me, a way to bypass and even maybe make the local library useless. But wait, I already have a netflix subscription for videos, google drive for files and documents, videotron for cable tv. And many more to come in the future. When will this end?


Surely I won't be able to subscribe to all these different subscriptions! What will I do? Or more precisely, what offer would make sense? Will there be a "generic" content subscription that will allow me, say for 20$ or 40$ per month to have access to multiple sources of content, from movies to books to documents to tv programme. A global content aggregator - not Apple nor Amazon nor Yahoo as I assume these guys will certainly offer it at a discount - that will provide content. Just digital content, aggregated across all the many providers. Kind of like a telecom provider that will manage my "content roaming", allowing me to pay "content roaming charges" when access content that is not part of their library.

The key to growth? Race with the machines via @ted | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
As machines take on more jobs, many find themselves out of work or with raises indefinitely postponed. Is this the end of growth? No, says Erik Brynjolfsson -- it’s simply the growing pains of a radically reorganized economy. A riveting case for why big innovations are ahead of us … if we think of computers as our teammates. Be sure to watch the opposing viewpoint from Robert Gordon.

Tomorrow Adobe is announcing new features that will enable marketers to react immediately to customer or prospect actions, an app store to make integrating with hundreds of new marketing technologies simple and fast, and more, including a new Media Optimizer that, it says, improves search ad effectiveness by 25 percent.

 

Adobe is also adding an app-store like exchange as a new core service to its marketing cloud, which it just significantly updated in March. The Exchange had been in beta and is now generally available as a core service across all marketing cloud components.

 

Media Optimizer consists of predictive modeling algorithms that use big data to predict campaign performance, campaign analysis via Adobe Analytics, remarketing capability, the new real-time campaign management features, and a new retail advertising optimization tool.

 

From ChiefMarTec:

They’re launching with more than 150 apps in their exchange, which has apparently already been leveraged by more than 1,200 major brand customers worldwide in an extensive beta program.

 

This is not a we do everything you would ever want in digital marketing position. This is a position that acknowledges that third-party innovation is a critical part of digital marketing — that a 1,000 innovators of marketing technology can be an incredible source of strength. This is a we can be the foundation of everything you would ever want in digital marketing position.

Seven elements of a reinvented IT function via @mckinsey | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Tinkering and short-term fixes aren’t enough. Traditional companies seeking strong digital performance must thoroughly transform their IT functions. A McKinsey & Company article.
Farid Mheir's insight:

The trend appears to be that IT groups are too difficult to change and that the only way to transform them is going around them: employees bypass IT group and do it themselves (shadow IT), CMOs that outspend CIOs in digital technologies, Walmart that creates a "lab" because it is too difficult to change the culture and compete with Amazon, MetLife that uses mongoDB to consolidate over 80 digital systems into a single database to provide customer service reps with 360 degree view of client, etc. 


Here McKinsey suggest ways in which IT can change. But the solution appears a bit ridiculous: create a parallel team that operates at "digital speed". Sounds like a workaround not a solution, no?

-- >  Some of the reference applications are pure enterprise/B2B workforce enablement applications which can be generalized to other field service scenarios

-- >  Others reference apps offer solutioning for B2B2C scenarios – which Forrester has been covering extensively in our wearables research.

-- >  Salesforce Wear will offer enterprises a quicker path to creating different types of user scenarios.

-- >  In addition to I&O pros, other tech vendors should take note, too.

-- >  Salesforce’s move into this space both validates the enterprise wearables market and will spur it forward even more quickly.
