Customer service organizations are struggling to react to the pace of innovation and the explosion of channels and devices. To get ahead of these challenges, AD&D pros must deeply invest in automation — automated answers, automated conversations, automated agent guidance, and automated end-to-end processes. They must also invest in intelligence to ensure automated technologies evolve and learn from prior interactions over time. Automation and intelligence quell the headcount increases. They will free agents from working on low-value or repetitive tasks, as they will only have to address highly complex customer scenarios or exceptions to standard operations. This also enables them to focus on building connections with customers to garner their satisfaction and loyalty.

Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well. Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the security market in 2018.

Both are fueled by a drive for progress, for pushing boundaries and advancing the status quo. In these fields, new trends are like a currency. Keeping ahead of the next big trend means being aware of the next big seller and allocating all the right resources – fashion design, manufacturing, and marketing – for maximum impact. Miss the hype and the next fashion season is bound to hurt the bottom line. New trends are also important to marketers because owning a new trend is a way to differentiate in today’s fast-moving digital landscape. It’s a way to stand out from the pack by investing strategically in the right approaches and technologies at the right time, then reaping the benefits organically by leading where others follow. Naturally, making these decisions requires a bit of trial and error. Nobody has a magic crystal ball that guarantees success. But as a rule of thumb, the companies winning in digital marketing are the ones willing to adopt new technologies while keeping an sharp.

Hotels and the travelers who frequent them bear little resemblance to their counterparts from just a few years ago. The explosion of new technologies has allowed hotels to change the way they operate and has made the average traveler more techsavvy and connected than ever. Mobile devices are driving this innovation. Not only have mobile devices changed how people interact with each other, they also have changed how people expect businesses to engage with them. According to SmartBrief, 40 percent of hotel guests carry three or more mobile devices. And with global mobile data traffic growing 30 percent every year according to Cisco, there will be an estimated 4.9 billion mobile users by 2018.

In this white paper, we will review three mobile trends that every hotelier should address, and we’ll offer recommendations on how to best address them.
