While improvements are still needed, the military does appear to be intent on implementing BYOD. There are definite benefits to an organized BYOD strategy, and the military wants to make the most of it while technology continues to advance. As long as security is improved and costs go down, personal devices will likely be part of the military sooner rather than later.
Propeople, a full-service agency for the digital age, today announced that it is expanding its Global Executive Team with the appointment of two new positions - Gus Murray as Global Chief Digital Strategy Officer, and Troels Feodor Nielsen as Global Chief Marketing Officer.

With the right preparation and anticipation, companies will be ready to meet and overcome the challenges while reaping all of the benefits.

The world of e-commerce is tough, and it’s only going to get tougher as more and more companies shift away from traditional brick and mortar stores and go with online enterprises. Because of the increase in competition and products offered, it’s more important than ever that companies get their marketing strategies right.

Not only is it harder than ever to get a customer's attention, but it’s also harder than ever to keep them coming back to your site/store. With big data technology and programs like Hadoop Hive, however, it’s becoming much easier.

Ninety percent of consumers said they expect the customer experience to be consistent across channels and devices used to interact with brands this holiday shopping season, according to a new global study of more than 3,000 consumers by SDL. This is a growing expectation from shoppers, representing a 17 percent increase from what consumers reported last year.
Considering that half of holiday shoppers use their mobile devices to research possible gifts before purchasing them in-store and 6 in 10 holiday shoppers do at least some showrooming – going to stores to evaluate products but then purchasing online – brands should make it a priority that the customer experience is consistent across channels and devices, something many consumers have reported frustrations with.
