Perficient Helps Enterprises Drive Engagement Through Comprehensive Social, Portal and Digital Experience Solutions

As customers continually demand consistent and positive experiences across all channels and in all interactions, enterprises are challenged with creating more engaging social and collaborative portal and web solutions. As a result, Perficient, Inc., a leading information technology consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, is seeing an increased demand from its clients for overall digital experience systems that include portal, social and web content management solutions.

“We are in the age of the consumer. To remain top of mind of their customers, companies today must evolve their websites and portals,” said John Jenkins, vice president of Perficient’s IBM business unit. “Gone are the days of static pages. To win today, organizations need to deploy digital experience systems – comprehensive, customer-centric solutions that deliver highly-personalized, social and collaborative content across multiple channels.”

As an IBM Premier Business partner, Perficient partners with organizations to deliver exceptional digital experiences utilizing IBM’s WebSphere Portal, IBM WCM and IBM Connections solutions. Perficient helps define and create next-generation mobile and social sites for clients across multiple industries including healthcare, financial services, CPG and retail.

“Successfully implementing a truly collaborative digital experience system is a complex undertaking for organizations across all industries,” said Michael Porter, principal of Perficient’s portal, web content and social solutions practice. “This is especially critical for the healthcare industry as the patient portal may be the most complicated portal one can build due to government regulations, physician requirements and patient needs. Fortunately, the IBM toolset gives us the agility to get around the complications and create great experiences for customers.”

Digital Experiences Critical to Healthcare Industry Success

The healthcare industry continues to undergo dramatic change due to regulatory reform including Meaningful Use Stage 2, which stipulates requirements and feedback on what a patient portal should be. This has led to a challenging dynamic between patients, providers and payers. An exceptional digital experience is one way to help each stakeholder get through the regulatory transition.

When it comes to implementing exceptional digital experiences for patient and member portals, Perficient has developed best practices that include the core functions each healthcare organization must implement to succeed – compliance, integration, personalization, mobile access and physician location information.

Porter and Mark Polly, Perficient director for portals, content and social, will delve into these five best practices that every healthcare portal must deliver in the session, “Healthcare Portals: 5 Core Items for an Exceptional Digital Experience,” at the IBM Connect 2014 conference. IBM Connect is the premier social, collaboration and community event worldwide, and is being held Jan. 26 – 30 in Orlando, Fla.

“The government has mandated providers have their patient portals up in 2014, and there is a lot of disparity in the industry as to who is deploying patient portals well, if at all,” continued Porter. “When it comes to patient portals most providers are applying quick fixes without thinking through an overall strategy, and they are going to hurt when it comes time to start measuring whether or not their patients visit these portals. Fortunately, there are some organizations that are getting it right and can serve as examples of the power exceptional digital experience systems can have in engaging patients and customers. We’ll highlight some of these top performers during IBM Connect.”

During IBM Connect, Perficient expert and 2014 IBM Connect Champion Glenn Kline presented the session, “Consumer Engagement and Exceptional Digital Experiences.” In this session, Kline discussed how to leverage IBM technologies to create innovative, engaging digital experience systems across multiple channels and how to continue to engage consumers using the portal platform with content management, analytics, personalization and social interaction. In doing so, companies can deliver multichannel exceptional customer experiences with measurable ROI.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
