At present, Data Governance and Compliance are the subject of particular attention due to the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). On the EMEA Data Governance & Compliance Summit Informatica presented their software solutions to support customers with the GDPR regulations, data quality and data security. Furthermore, the attendees gained great insights by presentations of Best Practices from Informatica customers.
Just before Christmas is traditionally the time when industry colleagues and market criers throw around predictions. Of course we, the experts, have to be part of it, too. A quick survey among our colleagues showed that the issues and technologies we will deal with in our customer projects don’t really require a gaze into the crystal ball. Our customers and we are already working on topics and areas that, for most people, will be only be relevant in the near future.
These are, in a nutshell, our new and old themes for 2017
What issues will affect our customer projects? Which ideas and technologies will we have to focus on? What will move us in 2016? As last year, we have interviewed our colleagues at RS Media and asked them for their predictions for 2016.
While in the last years our customers‘ major focus was on sales and marketing processes, we are now witnessing a shift toward digitalization, i.e. an increasing correlation of all business activities in a digital format. Our consultancy team has already devised the first digital concepts for well-known companies and is now implementing them with our customers.
There are also some fascinating trends affecting publishing. The term „individualized marketing“ has become a popular buzzword. We have achieved some outstanding results with our customer METRO in this respect: targeted and custom-tailored offers are now sent to the customers not only digitally but also in print.
RS Media Group now employs more than 130 IT and marketing experts, making it one of the leading companies focused on omnichannel consultancy in Europe. We help our customers to meet the challenges of digital transformation with a sales process that encompasses all sales channels, master data, Data Quality Management, IT solutions for MDM, PIM, DAM, e-commerce and print. Last year we won over 25 new customers who appreciate our comprehensive consultancy services and support.
We hope you enjoy our predictions!
Michael Fieg, Managing Director
