I’m sitting on my deck, the sun is out, I have a cup of tea resting on the broad arm of my adirondack chair. After a cheery wave to my neighbour, with my favoured mobile device in hand, I am indulging myself in a long overdue catch-up with my RSS feeds on a fine Saturday morning. Contented..
It’s been a while since I wrote about a book on this blog, but I’ve just read Managing Content Marketing – The Real World Guide for Creating Passionate Subscribers to Your Brand, by Robert Rose (@robert_rose) and Joe Pulizzi (@juntajoe) and I wanted to share as it might not be a book you’ve heard of,..
A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend SDL’s Return On Engagement Summit both in Boston and in New York. As part of these events we had Brian Solis as our guest speaker (as well some fine case studies presented by our partners). While this isn’t one of those fancy live blogging..
So, today Salesforce.com has moved to acquire Radian6, a respected and possibly ‘leading’ vendor in the relatively new space of Social Media Monitoring (SMM), a rival to products like Alterian’s SM2 product that I knew relatively well. For anyone interested in digital engagement whether you call it web (WEM), customer (CEM) or pervasive (PEM) this..
As you know I have recently joined SDL and I have been delighted to find a new twist on the business of engagement that I write about on this blog, something we call Pervasive Engagement. Ah hah! I can already hear the cynics pursing their lips and maybe clicking on the back button as you..

Recently I’ve been seeing ‘an examination’ shall we say of the term Web Engagement Management and the acronym WEM. There is a suggestion that it’s a figment of the fervid imaginations of software vendor marketing departments possibly in collusion with certain analysts and that dreadful things should be done to it’s proponents. In addition, this..
I originally posted this on the Gilbane blog back in October 2010 when I was an analyst there – as that blog has now changed hands and many posts removed, I wanted to preserve my writing here… To support our research and analysis, Scott Liewehr and I have been working on a capability model to define..
When you say WEM, do you say Web Experience Management or Web Engagement Management? What does it mean and does it matter and what about CEM? Well, in this post I want to explore that, in direct response to a couple of things – firstly I promised in my latest post over at the Gilbane..
I’m doing some work for a new client, who look at optimizing customer service across multiple channels using, rather interestingly – artificial intelligence. In my research on this I find myself observing an interesting convergence with the Web Engagement / Web Experience mantra that I’ve been peddling here and that there is perhaps something here that..
