Recent evidence shows that CIOs have a need and a desire to transform from fulfilling functional, technology-operations roles into being strategic change agents who foster business growth.

Mobile is undoubtedly changing both our personal and professional lives. Customer service organizations should decide on a strategy to bridge the gap between mobile behavior and customer service. This requires a strategic review of value drivers, combined with a tactical search for relevant use cases. Don’t fall in the “we need an app for everything” trap — some users need big screens, some users don’t. Some need a rich experience, others just need basic functions. Your strategy must take all of these dynamics into consideration.

Knowledge and strategic relationships fuel many organizations in today’s rapidly changing, global economy. As such, organizations need to leverage the individuals—and their networks—that possess the most relevant knowledge, whether they are current employees or are only loosely connected to the organization. To do this, organizations should create and leverage peer collaboration networks that enable them to identify and connect with individuals who have the unique skills, knowledge, and capabilities these organizations need. Bersin’s Research, Why Reputations and Networks Matter in the Open Talent Economy, indicates that this approach works in driving value—organizations that have effectively used internal reputation networks and profile databases have been able to increase key metrics such as employees’ time to productivity and innovation levels.

This document defines Oracle’s Customer Experience (CX) Value Equation as the strategic method to identify and measure the value of organizational CX. This model was originally documented in “CX Metrics and KPIs – September 2012.” It has received wide support, and has been the #1 searched hit and downloaded CX KPI document for 3+ years – a significant achievement in this industry – in an era where concepts are replaced daily with the latest, greatest fad. Since the original publication, I have received significant feedback that has been overwhelmingly positive, but with a request to comment on additional topics – most notably: brand impact, shared services, and Oracle’s Road to Modern. This updated paper leverages the original work, adds information around these additional topics and incorporates our continued client experience.

Dramatic shifts in workplace norms as a result of remote sales teams are now a reality, as field-based personnel perform so many vital selling and strategic account management business functions, more effectively armed with tablets than ever before. Aberdeen research conducted for Sales Performance Management 2012: How the Best-in-Class Optimize the Front Line to Grow the Bottom Line (December 2011), shows that 60% of companies’ sales team members are primarily remote workers. Indeed, in Aberdeen research for Mobile HCM: Workforce and Talent Management on the Move (June 2010), 57% of respondents who track the impact of their mobile recruiting efforts report improved quality and/or size of their talent pool as a result of their work. Does attracting and retaining a quality sales force thus require corporate technologies and processes that are influenced by consumer trends and cultural sea changes? Moreover, are there benefits to enterprises that enable their sales team to work remotely?
