Social media, text analytics and mobile are key drivers for development within Voice of the Customer (VoC) and Market Research (MR) programmes, but the value of combining them with existing methods of capturing feedback must not be ignored. This is one of the main conclusions of Confirmit’s Community Conference (CCC) series, the latest event of which took place in London 2 weeks ago.
To date, three successful CCC’14 events have taken place in Orlando, Oslo and London. The fourth is to be held in San Francisco on 25th September. The series has brought together hundreds of VoC, MR and Voice of the Employee (VoE) professionals from 12 countries, who gathered to discuss the successes and challenges faced by organizations running feedback programs to enhance business performance.

Last month, CMS Report celebrated eight years of providing stories to readers focused on content management systems. Over the years, I've told you how grateful and even surprised I am of the success CMS Report has seen. All true, but for fear of sounding ungrateful I've never acknowledged the negatives of blogging over such an extended period of time. Today, I'm acknowledging the costs and the need to take a break from my routine of waking up before sunrise and going to bed late to maintain this site. Starting today, I'm taking a three month sabbatical away from blogging here at CMS Report.
CMS Report will still be publishing articles from our contributors during my sabbatical, but you likely won't be seeing any articles written by me. I still plan on continuing working as editor but my office hours for the site will be reduced. I'm doing all this simply because I have responsibilities to the "day job" and myself that are begging for higher priority. In the draft for this article, I originally provided three reasons that I'm doing this sabbatical but deleted them from the published article. My reasons for taking such a break are not important but only the outcome. The end result is CMS Report will be fine without me and will likely be a better website as a result of my sabbatical.
