LV= increases top line through innovative approach to marketing and media optimization

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 4 July 2014

LV= (Liverpool Victoria), one of the UKs leading insurance and financial services providers, is expecting a double digit increase in annual sales of its 50+ life insurance product after optimizing its media budget.

Previously LV= had monitored sales attribution on a linear, channel-by-channel basis, which often resulted in a sale being attributed to the last media channel that touched a new customer when in reality a customer experienced multiple touch-points across multiple channels during the buying journey. Using BearingPoints marketing and media optimization solution LV= was able to see that this linear attribution approach created misalignment of its marketing budget across above the line and direct response marketing channels, and for the first time to truly see where its marketing investment had most impact.

Geoff Bates, Head of Marketing Analytics, LV= Life, said: We selected BearingPoint as our analytics partner because of their strong industry and marketing expertise, and their advanced HyperCube tool which we believe will provide LV= with a unique competitive advantage. Not only do we have a better understanding of the impact of spend across channels on our customers, we now also have an integrated process to plan our spend by working across all our internal teams and media agencies.

BearingPoints marketing and media optimization solution is powered by HyperCube, part of a new breed of data analytics tools using machine learning and data mining algorithms that go far beyond the capabilities of traditional statistics. Combining this unique analytics solution with BearingPoints expertise in the insurance industry the project team was able to carry out an in-depth analysis of more than 4,000 variables from LV=s internal systems and external data providers to define the optimum way to allocate marketing investment within and across channels. For example, specific channel analysis of direct mail campaigns revealed that LV= could achieve better efficiency by targeting prospects that HyperCube identified as having a higher propensity to buy. Acting on these findings resulted in saving 57% of the mailing costs.

Whats special about HyperCube is that it analyses all available data a kind of big data analytics tool for marketing without the need for hypotheses which typically cause traditional analytics to miss the biggest opportunities. We identify easy to understand business rules that our clients can implement for quick results. We are pleased to have won LV= as our customer, signing up not only for our marketing analytics service but also licensing our software, which demonstrates the confidence the LV= team has in our solution, added Andreas Rindler, Partner at BearingPoint and responsible for marketing and media optimization in the financial services industry.

The company has also reduced resource allocations to marketing communications while driving more traffic to their website.

Just one month after implementing Zifts technology, we tripled the frequency of our tweets, doubled our follower interactions and nearly eliminated all time spent producing Twitter content, said Stelios Xeroudakis, Director, Cloud Carib. Read the full case study here.

Zift Solutions recently expanded its social media capabilities to help channel organizations improve lead generation, build awareness, nurture relationships and ultimately drive more channel sales.

The key players that adopted this strategy are Corepoint Health (U.S.), Intersystems (U.S.), Cerner Corporation (U.S.), Orion Health (New Zealand), and Infor (U.S.).

An interface engine undertakes messaging between various systems and filters it or changes the format of the data, to enable swift data transfer from one system to another. In a healthcare organization, an interface engine is regarded as the backbone for healthcare information platforms, as it acts as a mediator for all messaging between healthcare organization systems.

The growth of the interface engines market is mainly attributed to an increasing importance of exchange of information within the healthcare service provider facility or with other affiliated organizations. In coming years, emergence of health information exchanges (HIEs), backed by government initiatives to promote integrated healthcare infrastructure is expected to play a pivotal role in growth of the interface engines and thereby healthcare IT integration market. However, the high cost of ownership and unresolved interoperability issues are expected to restrain the market growth to a certain extent.

Growing Application in Media Storage and Data Centres Drives the Global Micro Servers Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 20, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn Defined as a server comprising of multiple nodes, micro servers are increasingly emerging as a low-cost and energy-efficient solution for processing low-intensive/less-demanding workloads. These servers are mainly finding usage in applications ranging from low-end dedicated hosting and simple content delivery nodes, to low-end web serving among others. While the low price point is the major factor driving popularity of micro servers among small and medium-sized businesses, energy-efficiency both in terms of power consumption and cooling, and space-saving attributes are encouraging their widespread adoption among larger enterprises.

While media storage is currently the leading application area for micro servers, adoption in data centres is gaining increased momentum due to the growing emphasis on aspects such as storage and security of data in the corporate arena. Cloud computing and analytics are the other application areas where micro servers are finding extensive usage. Driven by the growing establishment of internal data centers and the increasing focus on achieving greater efficiency in terms of workload processing, Web 2.0 companies are likely to emerge as major adopters of micro servers. These servers are also expected to find increased use in short-term projects, as they are relatively cheaper to deploy as compared to virtual servers.

Micro servers are gearing up to weaken the stronghold of virtualization owing to the growing need to achieve greater efficiencies. Given their low cost and energy efficiency benefits, micro servers are emerging as attractive alternatives to virtualization of large servers in data centers, with a single large server replaced by a cluster of micro servers, offering similar computational abilities. Growing trend towards server clustering is further encouraging this trend, largely as the result of constrained IT budgets.

As stated by the new market research report Micro Servers, the United States represents the largest market worldwide, while Asia Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGG of 88.1% over the analysis period. Asia-Pacific is mainly being led by strong IT spending in China. Further, the expanding base of small and medium sized businesses in developing Asian countries with relatively smaller IT budgets and high volume of small workloads is also fuelling adoption of micro servers in the region.

Major players in the market include Acer America Corporation, Dell Inc., Fujitsu Limited, Hewlett-Packard Company, Super Micro Computer Inc., and TYAN Computers Corp., among others.

The research report titled Micro Servers: A Global Strategic Business Report announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, drivers, challenges, mergers, and other strategic industry activities. The report provides market estimates and projections in US dollars for all major geographic markets including the US, Canada, Japan, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Rest of World.
