LiquidHub, a digital integrator that partners with businesses to improve customer engagement and drive growth, today announced the appointment of Stephen Racioppo as chief operating officer (COO), as well as the opening of its new European office in Amsterdam.

Racioppo’s appointment, and the opening of a new office in Amsterdam, build on these milestones and continue to position LiquidHub as a leader in the emerging digital customer engagement sector. In his new role as COO, Racioppo will draw on his more than 35 years of experience at Accenture, where he led the financial services business in North America and Asia Pacific. At LiquidHub, he will guide the company’s consulting operations globally with a focus on business solutions and growth.

His philosophy and approach to business will serve to strengthen LiquidHub’s culture of enthusiastic global teamwork, thought leadership, and pride.”

Racioppo’s experience in financial operations includes leading the $1.2 billion consulting, technology and outsourcing business for Accenture’s financial services clients, driving market making opportunities and spearheading the firm’s venture business. He has also served as COO of Sari Asher, LLC; COO of TLO; CEO of Connect Address; Chief Revenue Officer of Broadridge Financial Solutions and has started several businesses, including Racioppo Consulting.

“LiquidHub is establishing itself as a trusted partner when it comes to developing and implementing digital customer experiences in a cost-effective way,” said Racioppo. “I am excited to leverage my global professional services experiences to help ensure that all aspects of the firm’s operating model – from innovative solutions development to sales, service delivery, and holistic client relationships – are fully aligned.”

LiquidHub partners with global healthcare and financial services brands to deliver technology innovation and integration, a market that is projected to see continued growth as cloud, analytics, and mobile technologies remain top-of-mind for chief marketing and information officers alike. Its new office in the Netherlands strengthens its global operations and will support its growing number of clients in Europe.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed.

In his session at @ThingsExpo...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
