Pacific Conferences Presents 2-Day Interactive Workshop on Social Monitoring & CRM



Are You Plugged in to What Customers are Saying about You?

Singapore, Feb 18, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Advocacy is the ultimate goal for every brand. Advocates recommend your company or product without being asked to do so. Brand ambassadors are eager to sell your products, tell your story, bring you new customers, and defend you in times of crisis. And it's no secret that social media allows for brand advocacy on a scale never seen before.

However, all these wouldn't happen if you're not monitoring social conversations. Social consumers desire conversations and engagement. Customer relationships are built only when brands stop pitching and start listening. But it does not stop there. Today's social consumers also expect a quick response on their preferred platform. To get closer to customers, it is important to optimise the power of social interactions and integrate social media with customer relationship management strategies.

Social CRM works by first monitoring brand sentiment, customer feedback, influencers, advocates, lead generation, potential crises, competitive intelligence and many more. It is by listening to social conversations that brands are able to connect social customers with the employee most equipped to meet their needs, thereby engaging social customers and prospects in their channel of choice. Social CRM is the brand's response to the customer's ownership of the conversation.

To equip marketing professionals with practical skills, strategies and tools to successfully engage and manage customer relationships on social media, Pacific Conferences has organised a 2-day interactive workshop on "Social Monitoring & CRM" to be held in Hong Kong from 7-8 April 2014 and Singapore from 10-11 April 2014. Through case studies of Dell, SAP, Starbucks, Red Bull, BlackBerry etc., it will provide the processes, strategies and software platforms available for social CRM, social business listening, and advocacy programs.

The workshop will be led by Michael Brito, Group Director of Media and Engagement at WCG, a W2O Group company, USA. He is responsible for helping clients implement social business frameworks that operationalise content strategy, scales community management and integrates paid, earned and owned media initiatives. Michael was also the former Senior Vice President for Edelman Digital and previously from Hewlett Packard, Yahoo & Intel where he was responsible for consumer social media marketing & community management.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster. To efficiently display results remotely, a high-performance, low-latency protocol transfers the display from the cluster to a remote desktop. Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer...
Though cloud is the future of enterprise computing, a smooth transition of legacy applications and systems is critical for seamless business operations. IT professionals are eager to start leveraging the cost, scale and other benefits of cloud, but with massive investments already in place in existing infrastructure and a number of compliance and resource hurdles, it can be challenging to move to a cloud-based infrastructure.

Amazon is pursuing new markets and disrupting industries at an incredible pace. Almost every industry seems to be in its crosshairs. Companies and industries that once thought they were safe are now worried about being “Amazoned.”. The new watch word should be “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” In his session 21st Cloud Expo, Chris Kocher, a co-founder of Grey Heron, will address questions such as: What new areas is Amazon disrupting? How are they doing this? Where are they likely to go? What are th...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
As hybrid cloud becomes the de-facto standard mode of operation for most enterprises, new challenges arise on how to efficiently and economically share data across environments. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Dr. Allon Cohen, VP of Product at Elastifile, will explore new techniques and best practices that help enterprise IT benefit from the advantages of hybrid cloud environments by enabling data availability for both legacy enterprise and cloud-native mission critical applications. By rev...
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive.

High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available.
