SDL Launches SDL Customer Experience Cloud™ to Deliver Personalized Customer Experiences

SDL (LSE: SDL) today launched the SDL Customer Experience Cloud™, a unified suite of offerings to help marketers create and deliver seamless global customer experiences across all channels, devices and languages.

The SDL Customer Experience Cloud integrates web content management, campaign management, social intelligence and analytics, e-commerce, language solutions and documentation. The SDL Customer Experience Cloud empowers the entire organization from marketing through to customer support to understand, create, manage and deliver contextually relevant customer experiences that drive better marketing decisions, e-commerce success and long-term customer engagement.

Businesses today are struggling to provide consistent, integrated experiences that engage customers across all interactions. According to a recent CMO Council study, only 12 percent of CMOs said they have a real-time, well-integrated view of customer interactions across their enterprises. At the same time, a recent Harris Interactive Customer Experience Impact Report study reports that 60 percent of customers will pay more for a better customer experience.

SDL’s Customer Experience Cloud gives companies the power to optimize multi-channel customer experiences from any device, understand brand health and product perception in real time, and nimbly adjust campaign strategies to increase marketing effectiveness and impact revenue — all from a single interface. With more than 1,500 global enterprise customers — including 72 of the top 100 global brands — and 400 partners, SDL is one of the only vendors with a truly integrated, comprehensive customer experience management offering.

“With thousands of customers all over the world, it’s especially important to have technology that allows us to engage with our user base in real time, in any language and context, from anywhere,” said Mark Terauchi, general manager, Corporate Brand Office, at Fujitsu. “We believe SDL can provide us with the ability to deliver a comprehensive customer experience, and the new releases from SDL will help us to advance our customer strategy more effectively.”

Based on customer demand, SDL has spent the last several years integrating its Customer Experience Management products to work together and to deliver the entire solution in the cloud. Highlights of this new release include:

  • A single intuitive user interface across all SDL’s CXM products has been significantly enhanced to provide a seamless marketing user experience that is modern, easy to use and easy to deploy.
  • SaaS delivery model for all SDL products, available now, with continuous enhancements quarterly throughout 2014.
  • Industry-first, integrated CXM Suite which enable marketers to create engaging, personalized and contextual customer experiences leveraging real-time data to drive better marketing decisions.
  • SDL Social is the only social intelligence solution with real-time analysis of social data and conversations across all social channels to effectively predict buying and brand advocacy across the entire customer journey.
  • The introduction of SDL Language Cloud, the industry’s first cloud translation solution offering both machine and human translation for radically simplified global translation – enabling marketers to engage customers in their preferred language across all interactions quickly and cost-effectively.
  • SDL Web Content Management is the first to enable marketers to easily target and drive consistent, contextually relevant digital customer experiences across all channels and devices from a single, intuitive interface.
  • SDL Marketing Campaign enables campaign testing, simulation, optimization and advanced segmentations – enabling customers to drive large-scale campaigns faster and more cost-effectively.
  • SDL E-Commerce provides advanced digital merchandizing features, which give retailers precise control over campaign context and prioritization over the placement of product and offers across search, navigation and promotional activities.
  • SDL Analytics provides real-time customer intelligence to understand, target and convert customers across the entire buyer journey.
  • SDL Documentation enables seamless post sales customer support by providing easy access to online materials including manuals, support information and other important documentation.

“We are in a new age of customer marketing where the journey and post-sale behavior can glean insights for brands to make smarter decisions about how they build relationships,” said Mark Lancaster, CEO of SDL. “This Customer Experience Cloud packs all the critical elements of customer experience management into one accessible suite and delivers on our vision that every marketer can meet the expectations of their global customer base and remain connected and responsive throughout the entire buyer journey.”

“By 2017, 70% of customer communications will be digital, contextualized and consumed on demand with multiple channels, including Web, mobile devices and social media. Enterprises are taking steps to provide a more personalized and engaging customer experience for traditional communications such as transaction documents, marketing collateral and point-of- purchase displays. Today, only 22% of those customer communications are digital — the majority are still paper-based.” (Gartner Predicts 2014 report: Content Gets Bigger, Richer and More Personal, 05 December 2013, Karen Shegda et al.)

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
