Havas EHS Selects Provenir Platform to Extend Its Real-Time Customer Engagement Offerings

Provenir announced today that it has entered into a new technology agreement with leading marketing agency, Havas EHS, to provide Provenir’s real-time customer engagement platform as the base for new Havas EHS client solutions. The new agreement will enable all Havas EHS business units to craft and orchestrate new digital interaction and social engagement offerings for its clients. The cloud-based platform will give Havas EHS’ clients the ability to proactively listen in real-time for “moments of truth” from consumers and immediately convert them into interactive brand experiences.

“After seeing incredible results from Provenir in multiple pilot projects, we have selected the Provenir Platform to underpin the FULCRM, our real-time engagement offerings,” said Tash Whitmey, CEO of Havas EHS. “Provenir is a key partner that we see as being able to enable data inspired ideas on which FULCRM is built. It uses contextual data in real-time to build far deeper pictures of each customer and allows us to deliver immediate, intimate actions that are genuinely engaging.”

Havas EHS’ successful pilot projects with Provenir have included converting a client’s traditional card-based loyalty program into one that is digital, mobile, social and connected in real-time. The new solution delivers orchestrated loyalty journeys across live POS interactions, the mobile app, the website and social comments on Twitter. The brand is now listening to the entire Twitter pipe for comments from its loyalty program members, and when detected, immediately and automatically awards additional loyalty points. Additionally, members can earn points and redeem them in real-time while benefitting from real-time location-based offers and messages.

On the merits of the Provenir Platform, Gerry Brown, Senior Analyst, Consumer IT and Integrated Media at OVUM states in his July 2013 report “On the Radar: The Provenir Platform”, “The Provenir Platform connects data held in campaign management systems, content management systems, CRM systems, and social media to orchestrate omni-channel customer listening. Serving as the realtime "glue" between existing systems, the Platform combines content from many different databases and systems to enable enterprises to perform customer listening before active engagement. The platform maps data sources "on the fly" and can build a realtime view of end-to-end customer journeys.”

"This new agreement is a great testament to both the promise of Provenir’s technology and of Havas EHS’ great commitment to deliver truly innovative offerings to its clients across the globe," says Mark Smith, Ph.D., President of Provenir's customer listening division.

Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
