David M. Raab, oprichter en CEO van het internationaal opererende Customer Data Platform Institute, een keynote presentatie verzorgen tijdens de DDMA Data Dag over de staat van de CDP markt wereldwijd en in Europa

AMSTERDAM, 15-Nov-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Marketeers hebben vandaag de dag meer data tot hun beschikking dan ooit, maar worstelen om ze te combineren tot een bruikbare vorm. Customer Data Platform (CDP) technologie belooft dit probleem op te lossen in de vorm van makkelijk te implementeren systemen, die alle klantdata combineren en delen. Maar de vraag die marketeers, IT’ers en executives zich terecht stellen is: kan een CDP echt die beloften waarmaken?

Op 23 januari 2019 hosten het Customer Data Platform Institute (CDPI) en Squadra Group de intensieve marketing workshop, “Making the Most of Customer Data Platforms,” om die vraag te beantwoorden en deelnemers mee te nemen in een deep dive in deze, zich zeer snel ontwikkelende, martech sector, die begin 2019 naar verwachting de €200 miljoen omzet in Europa zal overtreffen.

De workshop zal plaatsvinden in Seats to Meet Utrecht CS (Hoog Catharijne) van 12.00 uur tot 18.00 uur en zal geleid worden door David M. Raab, oprichter en CEO van het internationaal opererende Customer Data Platform Institute. De dag erna zal hij ook een keynote presentatie verzorgen tijdens de DDMA Data Dag over de staat van de CDP markt wereldwijd en in Europa.

Considering the present scenario of increasing partnerships it has been possible to develop new sales funnels for SAP cloud platform services, which in turn is expected to fuel the market valuation of SAP cloud platform services in the forthcoming years.” – Lead Analyst, Fact.MR IoT and Cloud Computing, ICT Domain

Few Takeaways Highlighted in the Report

  • End users of SAP cloud platform services continue to showcase higher preference for strategy and consulting services; POC (Proof of Concept) service likely to gain high traction

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Emerge as an Attractive End User

Small and medium scale enterprises are emerging as lucrative end users with respect to SAP cloud platform services adoption, says the report. Small and medium businesses are largely focusing on cloud computing services owing to relatively low cost associated with cloud computing as compared to on-premise deployment and SAP cloud platform services are no exception. The report estimates that the SAP cloud platform services market revenue generated from small and medium enterprises is likely to cross US$ 100 Mn by end of 2018.

Request Methodology of this Report at https://www.factmr.com/connectus/sample?flag=RM&rep_id=2265

On the other hand, relatively lower revenue generation has been observed across large enterprises on account of early adoption of on-premise deployment that is pre-planned. Moreover, affordability quotient of on-premise deployment services by large enterprises is high as compared to SMEs. However, SAP cloud platform services are likely to gain higher traction across large enterprises in the future, according to the report.

Preeminence of Americas Region to Prevail in the SAP Cloud Platform Services Marketplace

Sales of SAP cloud platform services are likely to remain concentrated across Americas, particularly the United States. Macroeconomic factors such as significant economic growth and high GDP coupled with growing cloud computing infrastructure and presence of key SAP cloud platform services vendors have influenced sales in the country.

The report projects that the demand for SAP cloud platform services across Japan, India, China and Australia is expected to grow at a stellar pace. Of these countries, albeit at a lower base apropos of revenue generation, India is likely to project potential growth prospects for SAP cloud platform services, according to Fact.MR report.

Overall, the outlook for SAP cloud platform services market remains bullish in the forthcoming years, with the market expanding at a value CAGR of 29.5% throughout the period of assessment, 2018-2028.

CDP Institute Europe (CDPIE): European revenue for all CDP vendors will total at least €200 million in 2018, including €130 million for EU-based vendors

AMSTERDAM, 06-Sep-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — European companies that have deployed Customer Data Platforms are highly satisfied with their systems, according to a study released today by the CDP Institute Europe (CDPIE).

The survey found that the CDP was delivering “significant value” for 80% of CDPIE members who had completed a deployment. In total, 24% reported a CDP in place, another 34% had a deployment in process or planned within the next twelve months, and the balance had plans to deploy after the next twelve months, no plans to deploy, or didn’t know.

Other findings in the report include:

  • large consumer companies (over €100 million revenue) have a much more pressing need for CDPs, with 68% saying they had many disconnected marketing systems. This group is the core of the CDP marketplace worldwide. Only 26% of business-to-business companies have many disconnected systems.
  • large consumer companies are more likely to connect their systems with a CDP. A total of 86% had a CDP in place or were planning a deployment. By contrast, 52% of business marketers had no CDP deployment plans, reflecting the greater existing integration those groups reported.
  • Interest in CDPs extends well beyond marketing departments. Marketers accounted for just 40% of respondents at B2C companies, with IT (23%) and corporate management (17%) also heavily represented.
  • Over-all, CDP deployment in Europe is in early stages. Only 14% of CDPIE members at large consumer companies had completed their CDP deployment. We believe deployment rates are substantially lower among non-CDPIE members.

The full report can be downloaded here.

Customer Data Platforms are packaged software that builds a unified customer database which can be shared with other systems. The CDP Institute estimates that European revenue for all CDP vendors will total at least €200 million in 2018, including €130 million for EU-based vendors, and is growing above 50% per year.

We are tremendously excited by the prospect of what Zuuse and GCPay can achieve together, and I look forward to sharing these benefits with our customers.”

First-ever study of the European CDP industry analyzes 21 vendors employing more than 1,500 people and generating at least €130 million revenue in 2018

Philadelphia, USA, 11-Jul-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — European vendors in the soon-to-be €1 billion Customer Data Platform (CDP) industry are leading its transition to more integrated solutions, according to a study released today by the CDP Institute Europe.

The first-ever study of the European CDP industry analyzes 21 vendors employing more than 1,500 people and generating at least €130 million revenue in 2018. European firms account for one-quarter of worldwide CDP employment. Vendors covered in the report are: BlueConic, BlueVenn, Boxever, Camp de Bases, Celebrus/D4T4, CommandersAct, ContactLab, CrossEngage, Eulerian Technologies, Fospha, IntentHQ, Invicta, Jahia, LeadBoxer, NGDATA, Nominow, Piwik Pro, PRDCT, RedEye, Splio, and Ysance.

While most of the industry outside Europe sells products limited to database creation and analytics, the majority of European CDP vendors include these functions plus integrated applications such as Web site personalization or email message selection. Systems with these applications have generated nearly all industry growth worldwide in the past year, according to the CDP Institute’s recent analysis of the global industry.

“European marketers have special needs, such as compliance with GDPR, that are often best understood by local vendors,” said CDP Institute Europe CEO David Raab. “Development of a European CDP industry will help more marketers take advantage of CDP’s ability to make full use of their customer data.”

Customer Data Platforms are specialized software that creates a unified, persistent customer database. The world-wide industry has grown 76% in the past year and is expected to exceed $1 billion by 2019. Gartner recently called CDP one of six top marketing technologies to watch in 2018.

Glendale, CA, 2018-Jul-09 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Affiliate Summit, which hosts two events in the United States, in Las Vegas and New York, will be held at the New York Marriott Marquis from July 29-31. The two-decade-old global conference and tradeshow expects to host thousands of digital marketers from over 70 countries.

Key attendees typically include C-suite executives and top decision-makers from a variety of different industries all within the lead generation space. The individuals, agencies and service providers amass at Affiliate Summit to grow their network and learn from other industry experts.

Phonexa announced earlier this year that they are taking the lead in eliminating integration fees in order to create a more client-friendly business practice. The accumulated cost of API integrations is often a serious roadblock for companies who need to upgrade their existing systems. With the costs of integrations out of the picture, businesses can allocate more of their budget and effort towards creating better products and marketing campaigns. Phonexa’s client-focused business practice should be well-received at the 2018 Affiliate Summit East, as thousands of brand representatives and industry leaders collectively hunt for value-driven solutions.

The packed agenda at Affiliate Summit East provides each different attendee with relevant workshops, networking opportunities and valuable takeaways; equipping affiliates, networks, technology providers and digital agencies with the appropriate strategies and industry knowledge they came to acquire.

Russian mobile operator MTS successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the WorldCup in Russia

MONTREAL, Canada, 06-Jul-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — iBwave, the global standard for designing multi-technology in-building networks announced today that MTS, the leading telecommunications group in Russia, has successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the 2018 Soccer tournament.

One of the main challenges during a major event like this is to be ready for the massive data demands put forward by excited fans using multiple devices in a stadium’s complex environment. To enable a fast, reliable fan experience during the 2018 Soccer, MTS Russia leveraged iBwave Design’s planning, propagation and capacity modelling features to quickly deliver one the largest deployments of Massive MIMO in Europe to date. iBwave Design was used to successfully plan and deploy high capacity networks for the following stadiums and surrounding areas: Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow (capacity: 80,000), Spartak Stadium, Moscow (capacity 45000), Rostov Arena Rostov-on-Don (capacity 45000) and Kazan Arena, Kazan (capacity 45000).

Through iBwave’s ability to design mobile networks in large complex venues such as stadiums, operators like MTS can create the ultimate wireless experiences by meeting the demands of a large number of people at a specific time without compromising on speed and quality. There is no margin for error in such an environment when the service is needed then and there without any disruption. Many players are needed to create this experience and iBwave’s design capability ties this all together. With iBwave on its team, MTS was able to deliver a great end user experience by leveraging design features such as signal and capacity modeling right down to inclined surfaces, complex architecture and body-loss calculations when the stadium is filled to capacity.

“It is always difficult to predict mobile consumer needs in high density, high capacity environments- particularly for a world class sporting event such this, where thousands of sports fans are simultaneously using multiple devices across multiple technologies,” says Seth Roy, Vice President Product Line Management at iBwave. “Based on our experience of connecting major sporting events such as past World Cups and the Olympics, our tools are the ideal choice to prepare for the huge amounts of data requirements during the 2018 World Cup. We are proud to support MTS in this project and extremely excited to be part of the design and deployment of Europe’s largest Massive MIMO experiences”, he added.

More than 3 million spectators are estimated to watch the games live during this month-long event, which is underway until July 15th.

Former Gartner executive Richard Stiennon on GDPR: organizations have to comply with the most intrusive technology regulation ever

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, May-1-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — ZOOM International, a leader in call recording, workforce optimization, and compliance software for the omnichannel contact center, today announced support for the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). By making simplicity, speed, and cost-effectiveness the goals of the release, ZOOM has created a new industry standard—companies who need to support GDPR in any region of the world don’t have to purchase and implement more software. GDPR support is a standard part of the ZOOM 6.3 Suite.

Former Gartner executive and Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest, Richard Stiennon, explained the scenario in a November 2017 article on Forbes, “The looming imposition of a new data protection regulation in the EU is already sending tremors through the legal and IT worlds as organizations wake up to the fact that by May 25, 2018, they have to comply with the most intrusive technology regulation ever. Law firms and consulting firms are starting to use phrases like ‘this is Y2K all over again.’”

Companies in and outside the EU are taking immediate action to make applications compliant while also planning for larger, cross-department initiatives in parallel. For any company (in any country) managing EU citizen data, fines can be as much as €20 million or 4% of global annual revenues. To add to the pressure, many WFO vendors force additional software purchases of complicated “compliance suites.” Unlike ZOOM, these companies add a burden, creating additional friction for their customers—forcing longer timelines for decisions, approval, and implementation.

“GDPR is a monster of a regulation for companies to tackle,” explained Brian Shore, CEO of ZOOM International, “So, we designed ZOOM 6.3 to simplify and streamline the effort it takes to achieve GDPR compliance. It also gives customers enough flexibility to evolve over time without becoming a beastly, bloated, and outrageously expensive application—like we see from many of our competitors. In addition, GDPR truly puts the ownership of data completely in the consumers’ hands, even allowing them to have all their data erased. To address this, companies really need quality management software more than ever. Perhaps they could afford to have upset customers in the past, but now it is much more expensive. GDPR will enable a different type of attrition than we have ever seen in the history of the world.”

Axiomatics offers fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering

CHICAGO, Oct-05-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Axiomatics, the leader in fine-grained dynamic authorization, today announced that KuppingerCole has profiled its data-centric dynamic authorization suite in a recent analyst report titled, “Executive View – Axiomatics Data Security.” The report sheds light on two flagship products; Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data, both of which apply an Attribute Based Access Control mechanism across different types of data stores, and centralizes policy-based authorization rules for access to the content within these data stores.

KuppingerCole’s Executive View describes the solutions in detail and offers advice to IT professionals looking for data-centric security. The Axiomatics Data Access Filter offers policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering for relational databases. Implemented as a database proxy, the product intercepts all connections to the database from any user or application and analyzes every SQL statement for potential violations of applicable security policies. In accordance to the ABAC approach, the authorization service may query multiple attribute sources for additional context information needed for a fine-grained access decision.

SmartGuard™ for Big Data (the most recent addition to Axiomatics’ data security portfolio) extends ABAC-based dynamic authorization to Hadoop Big Data stores. There’s a growing need to ensure consistent fine-grained access control and maintain regulatory compliance for Hadoop. These infrastructures often comprise multiple loosely coupled components, and Big Data stores are used to store massive amounts of data from numerous sources with multiple applications accessing them simultaneously. Utilizing ABAC for transparent dynamic access control to a Big Data store for multiple analytics applications allows enterprises to combine all the benefits of a single data warehouse with the traditional siloed approach, where each application has access only to its own data silo.

“For years, we have been tracking the information security market. As data security threats rise, Axiomatics continues to lead by offering solutions that help companies with fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering. Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data are a natural expansion of the company’s comprehensive suite of dynamic authorization solutions,” said Alexei Balaganski, lead analyst for KuppingerCole and author of the report. “Whether deployed standalone or as a part of an enterprise-wide ABAC infrastructure, these products provide an additional dynamic security and access control layer around multiple data stores transparently and without any application changes.”

“Our relentless focus on solving the toughest problems in data-centric security, have made Axiomatics the choice for IT professionals and companies looking for data security solutions to complex big data environments,” said Gerry Gebel, vice president of business development at Axiomatics. “We are honored to have such a distinguished analyst like KuppingerCole continue to review our suite of products. Their reports further underscore its commitment to delivering cutting-edge information on data security in the era of digital transformation.”
