French shopping mall Galeries Lafayette redefines the clothes hanger to make it digital and connected #storeTransformation #IOT @galeries_laf @ineat @Blue_Griot | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

La problématique à laquelle nous faisions face était de savoir comment améliorer l’expérience client tout en créant un moment privilégié entre les vendeurs et les clients. De ce fait, grâce au cintre connecté, le vendeur deviendra davantage un conseiller stylistique et le client pourra immédiatement consulter les tailles disponibles, le prix et essayer un vêtement qui lui sera directement amené en cabine.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the equipment in stores is bound to change in the coming years. Here a great example of this innovation. The clothes hanger is connected to provide information and connects the customer to the clothes and the fitting rooms. Great product prototype, would love to have access to the analytics data that was collected on its usage. Would also love to see the operations and maintenance knowledge they gathered during the tests (breaking, malfunctions, stolen, etc.)...

A detailed review of the performance of Amazon Private Label Brands describes the tactics and the performance of these products and paints Amazon not always as the category killer everyone expected... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

According to Marketplace Pulse research, Amazon-owned private label brands are not nearly as successful as many paint them to be. Amazon has been successful in creating generic items at low prices, but only when using the Amazon brand name (i.e., AmazonBasics and Amazon Essentials). Otherwise, the hundreds of brands and tens of thousands of products launched are not resonating with customers.
On the surface, Amazon is utilizing its knowledge of its powerful retail machine to steer shoppers toward its in-house brands and away from its competitors. The goal of this research was to check if this was true. To validate if the success of AmazonBasics batteries could be extrapolated to other brands and different categories.
We analyzed over 23,000 products launched by Amazon under more than 400 different brands. Some of those brands are private label brands built by Amazon, and some are exclusive brands made by a third party. All under the “Our Brands” umbrella, a collection of Amazon private brands and a curated selection of brands sold exclusively on Amazon.
According to our research the Amazon-owned Top 10 most successful private label brands, including the likes of AmazonBasics and Pinzon, contribute estimated 81% of the total sales. Amazon added more than 100 brands in 2018, but none of the recent launches are category leaders. Amazon has attracted much attention with every new brand they launched, however the assumption that every new brand will be as impactful as AmazonBasics is unfounded. It is Quantity vs. Quality - AmazonBasics represents less than 5% of products launched, but more than 57% of sales.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: when Amazon started to use its knowledge of best sellers in certain categories to sell products under its own brand, huge alarm bells started to sound. After a few years this study shows that even this unfair advantage is not sufficient to make Amazon the runaway competition killer. But with the expected rise of marketplaces in the coming years, this trend may prove difficult to bear for brands and smaller retailers that distribute on these online channels. Let's hope it doesn't backlash for Amazon and others...

Get a reliable system up and running fast. For the past decade we’ve been helping organizations around the globe strengthen their innovation capabilities, and that work has taught us that there’s an important intermediate option between ad hoc innovation and building an elaborate, large-scale innovation factory: setting up a minimum viable innovation system (MVIS).

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the most difficult part of digital transformation is the transformation part. This 90-day approach by HBR will help most team get over the initial "hump" and start their digital innovation process.

Speed kills: more evidence from @Google that slow websites, especially in mobile, impact conversion rates and degrades #userExperience #iThoughtEveryoneKnewThisAlready | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

There are many business growth strategies out there, but there’s one area where nearly every business has room to improve: the mobile site speed.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: website page load speed - it's performance - has direct impact on the conversion rate. The faster a site loads, especially on mobile devices, the better are its chances that users will continue exploring, enjoy their experience and possible convert (ie. buy your product/service). To achieve this there are a myriad of things that must be done, starting from design decisions all the way to technology you deploy. This is BIG and has been known for years, with Google being the first in late 1990s to present a very simple home page for its search engine. Yet it seems that we do not learn...

Predicts 2019: New Deployment Models, Channels and Technologies Spark Digital Commerce Growth

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: we need to look forward and this is one set of insights from a reputable source. Amongst the insights, the low adoption of voice for commerce seems realistic (have you tried any of them? great to set an alarm but too obscure to spend real money IMHO). Also, prediction that there will be 3 major commerce platform behemoths (Amazon + Alibaba + eBay?) also makes sense: small retailers, brace yourself to be heard outside those channels! And large retailers need to update their technologies to target many different marketplaces. Then again, take with a huge grain of salt ;-)

Attribution 101: Finding the right measurement model for your business via @Google | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

There are a number of approaches to measurement, depending on the important metrics for your business. Google’s Jeremy Freedman walks you through the steps toward better attribution.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is one of the most important topic in marketing these days, one based on analytics, data, and the proper integration of an often large number of tools and solutions from multiple vendors and technologies. In a nutshell, a very complex solution to design and implement and, as this article explain, a concept that often is not well understood by even those marketers that are in charge of reporting on attribution. So read this to get started.

The boom of e-commerce isn’t leaving physical retail in the dust. It’s actually resulting in a physical retail renaissance that’s changing the game. And we all have two sources to thank for that: digitally-native vertical brands (DNVBs), and the consumers who are down for them.

Physical retail is the new place to be, and just like everything else, consumers are going old-school but with a new twist. Physical experiences are complementing the digital ones, setting the stage for distinctive, personal, and memorable interactions that can lead to lifetime brand loyalty.
And innovative DNVBs have caught on, leveraging tech, social media, and shifts in consumer buying behavior to create seamless experiences across digital and physical touch points to reshape the whole retail landscape.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: shopping malls are struggling with retailers closing their stores and foot traffic dropping. This new concept BrandBox by Macerich sounds amazing as it provides online pure plays - and brands with no physical stores - with all the expertise they typically don't have - designers, real estate planners, etc. - along with concept store formats that can be deployed in as little as a few weeks. This makes mall owners value add partners, not just real estate pushers, and gives their properties a new lease on life to replace brick and mortars that are struggling. There is a new business model in there somewhere...

Optimizing Checkout Login Screen Design discusses the different options that eCommerce designer face to ensure checkout completes via @ecomillustrated | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The goal of checkout’s first step is to successfully move new and returning customers to the next step, and not lose customers due to usability or design problems.

Regardless of the specific design you apply, keep the following best practices in mind:

  • Both new and returning customers should be able to quickly identify their login option above the fold, without scrolling, whether on desktop or mobile (especially returning customers within a “Bypass” checkout)
  • New customers should not be asked to decide between creating an account or using guest checkout (unless saving information in a new account is not possible with the ecommerce platform)
  • Buttons should be clearly labeled with specific text, versus “Continue” or “Checkout”
  • Email should be captured as early as possible in the flow

Of course, there’s flexibility to design (and test designs) for the first step of login. Stay tuned for our upcoming Ecommerce Illustrated chapter on checkout testing tips. Have you subscribed?

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a great discussion of different options for ecommerce checkout. Also, the website other posts provide additional useful information and discussions, happy to see it come back after a long pause...

#BI tools and #technologies all must include #AI to remain relevant in the future via @Eckerson @TDWI Checklist Report | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In this report, TDWI uncovers deeper insights that give users new perspectives on business questions. AI will transform BI and the way people make decisions and act. Rather than start with a hypothesis, data analysts will begin with an AI-driven insight. Instead of querying data to prove or disprove their hypothesis, users will query data to expand or validate a machine-generated insight or recommendation—or they might act on the AI-based insight at face value. But to get to that point, AI-infused BI tools will need to gain people's trust by consistently delivering accurate, relevant, and transparent insights within the context of a business user’s existing workflow.
In the future, AI-infused BI tools will go beyond just surfacing insights; they will recommend ways to address or fix issues, run simulations to optimize processes, create new performance targets based on forecasts, and take action automatically. And yes, machines will make some decisions for us—especially operational decisions in real-time environments. We see this today with fraud detection and online trading systems, but it will become more pervasive.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: an interesting report that puts artificial intelligence (AI) tools as tools to augment Business Intelligence (BI) and evolve the field beyond analytics into prediction. Also provide some good reference diagrams as this one.

Threat Intelligence is a new field of expertise with its set of resources, processes and tools - this report from via @Gartner provides insights into the field and solutions available | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services. Key Findings:
- The term “threat intelligence” covers a diverse set of capabilities.
Client interest in industry-led government and commercial TI has increased significantly during the past two years. There are still large numbers of providers in this market, with startups also entering.
- The number and diversity of TI services, as well as expertise, have created an environment in which purchasers often struggle to compare services, and there’s still no single provider to address all of them. Many vendors can provide access to information; fewer provide truly anticipatory content or curation based on customized intelligence.
- The value of these services is sometimes constrained by the customer’s ability to afford, absorb, contextualize and, especially, use the information provided by the services.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: threat intelligence is a new field introduced by digital transformation. As more data is created and more processes are transferred to digital, the potential threats of fraud and other security breaches increases and requires new resources, new processes and new tools. This Gartner report provides a reference document to understand the field and help select partners.

Digitalization is now going mainstream. For example, the Economist has devoted a full issue to it.  “Whether you are going for a run, watching TV or even just sitting in traffic, virtually every activity creates a digital trace—more raw material for the data distilleries. Meanwhile, artificial-intelligence (AI) techniques such as Machine Learning extract more value from data. Algorithms can predict when a customer is ready to buy, a jet-engine needs servicing or a person is at risk of a disease.”

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: AI and machine learning will be embedded into every product and solution in the future, as evidenced by this recent SAP technology vision. For most companies, they will need to focus on data gathering, cleaning and building capabilities to analyze and use AI insights than to develop their own AI solutions.

Augmented reality (AR) – technology that overlays computer imagery over real-world imagery as seen by cameras in real time, is being eagerly adopted by business.

Digital Transformation strategy is all about choosing what NOT to do as highlighted by Michael Porter, the "father" of business strategy from @Harvard via @Forbes | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

To summarize, Hollister and Watkins write, “What tradeoffs are we willing to make? In other words, if we do this, what won’t get done?” Choosing tradeoffs and setting limits are hard. Organizations are often scared to forgo any initiative when a competitor is knee-deep in it. Partly, this can be traced back to human disposition.
