As organizations increase their focus on the employee experience in the digital workplace, many companies are pursuing integrated workspaces that combine multiple applications. Not surprising, as research shows us that there is a cost incurred every time an employee switches context.
Let’s face it, customer communications management (CCM) software is now required by businesses of all sizes for creating consistent, contextual, and compliant customer communications. The marketplace is expanding, and so are the expectations of customers. Homegrown solutions, word processing software and CRM extensions are no longer sufficient. Today, even an enterprise-grade CCM solution is not enough by itself. To get the most out of your investment, CCM software should be integrated with the systems of record (i.e., data sources), systems of engagement (e.g., your customer web portal), and the other digital experience components of your enterprise architecture. Here’s a look at three of the most important CCM integrations available today.

We’ve also written about the differences we see between a digital experience product and a digital experience software stack (i.e., a true “platform”).
Using Master Data Management to Close Gaps in Customer Experience Gartner defines master data management (MDM) as “a technology-enabled discipline in which business and IT work together to ensure the uniformity, accuracy, stewardship, semantic consistency and accountability of the enterprise’s official shared master data assets. Master data is the consistent and uniform set of identifiers and extended attributes that describes the core entities of the enterprise including customers, prospects, citizens, suppliers, sites, hierarchies and chart of accounts.” Basically, it means linking all data sources into a single master file that provides a common point of reference.
