Prophet Expands Leadership Team in Hong Kong

HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- The global strategic brand and marketing consultancy Prophet has appointed two new members to the Hong Kong office leadership team, effective immediately. Partner Jay Milliken, and Senior Engagement Manager Julie Purser bring with them rich experience developing customer-driven growth strategies for iconic brands worldwide.

"Jay and Julie are important additions to Prophet's Hong Kong office amidst our robust business momentum in the region," said Michael Dunn, Chairman and CEO for Prophet. "They have an impressive track record for combining analytical rigor with creativity and innovation to transform the world's leading brands and businesses."

Milliken has been with Prophet for over a decade, most recently in the London office, where he played a pivotal role in the company's explosive growth in the UK and continental Europe. His strategic approach to developing and executing customer-driven growth helped the company win large brand assignments for Cisco and Monsanto.

"It's an exciting time to join Prophet's Hong Kong office," explained Milliken. "Many companies in the region are looking to us for guidance to help them link brand strategy to business strategy. Our clients are ready to leverage their brands beyond marketing, to unlock growth, transform it into a customer experience and motivate people."

Purser was most recently a senior engagement manager in Prophet's Chicago office, where her deep understanding of data-driven insights helped provide clients with a window of understanding into consumer and business buying patterns and motivations. In her seven years with Prophet, she has worked with Cargill, Electrolux, Johnson & Johnson and T. Rowe Price.

"I am thrilled to work in one of the world's fastest growing economies, helping clients understand the impact that a compelling brand and customer strategy can have on their business growth," said Purser. "Prophet helps companies better understand their consumers so they can meet their needs in ways previously believed to be impossible."

David Aaker, vice chairman of Prophet, added, "Asia is one of Prophet's growth priorities and the leading brands in the region are turning to Prophet to take marketing to the next level." Aaker will be in Shanghai on 22 September to launch the Chinese versions of his latest books: Aaker on Branding: 20 Principles that Drive Success and Brand Relevance: Making Competitors Irrelevant.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development.

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...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
