The luxury market continues to adjust to recent economic turbulence, making it all the more important for luxury brands to adapt to changing market conditions and evolving customer needs. "Current research shows that there is solid opportunity for growth in the luxury market where brands show exceptional quality, reputation and value. But with the variety of choices available and the changing dynamics of customer relationships, it's important for marketers to distinguish themselves and demonstrate a deeper understanding of their customers and market segments," explains James Dean, Senior Vice President and Head of the Luxury Practice at WealthEngine.

As Stephen Kraus, Senior Vice President and Chief Insights Officer at IpsosMediaCT's Audience Measurement Group explains, "Wealth is a powerful predictor of spending in virtually every category, particularly luxury.  For marketers, targeting and segmenting wealthy consumers has become more important than ever."  Wealth intelligence gives these organizations a deeper understanding of who their best customers and prospects are –their wealth, personal and professional interests, lifestyle, business and family– so they can be more precise and focused in reaching their audience with the right message and the right promotional offers. Custom predictive analytics go a step further and allow marketers to draw insight by analyzing actual customer data along with WealthEngine's wealth data, to expose patterns that can predict future customer behavior.

Designed for luxury marketing and business development professionals, the white paper provides best practices, case studies and a methodology for leveraging an analytic solution to find prospects that look like top customers, and to find opportunities to upsell, cross-sell and drive share-of-wallet among existing customers. Included are highlights of the wealth scores and custom predictive analytics that are available through WealthEngine, giving marketing professionals a practical guide to building an analytical approach to their marketing and prospecting.

Readers of this white paper will learn about:

  • The role of analytics in building a marketing strategy
  • Today's trends and challenges for luxury marketers
  • WealthEngine's unique approach to developing and utilizing wealth scores
  • Best practices and practical tips for applying custom predictive analytics
  • How to determine the optimal analytic solution based on your goals

Many of WealthEngine's luxury clients, from high-end fashion and jewelry to travel and hospitality, from luxury automobiles to private aviation, have seen dramatic results by using wealth intelligence and predictive analytics to build strategies to grow their business among high net worth and ultra high net worth customers. With a systematic approach to understanding their customers and prospects, these organizations are able to uncover new sales opportunities, increase customer retention and gain a competitive edge while deploying marketing resources more effectively.

"It's all about gaining greater share of wallet from your customers and building referrals off of your customer base. Using only traditional database marketing tactics just doesn't work anymore. Those luxury brands that use advanced modeling and predictive analytics to segment their customers and target their campaigns are the ones that are going to succeed in today's market," says Greg Furman, Founder & Chairman of The Luxury Marketing Council.

As Dean explains, "Ultimately, it's all about creating a closer tie to the customer. Understanding wealth and lifestyle patterns that drive possible customer consumption behavior, such as an increase in net worth or the purchase of a second home, allows marketers to uncover opportunities to reach the customer with a timely offer and a relevant message."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
