Forrester decides to buy SiriusDecisions

600 400 kevin

One version of the Sirius Demand Waterfall

Research firm Forrester announced today that it will buy B2B research and advisory firm SiriusDecisions.

The deal, which is expected to close in January, will cost the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Forrester $245 million in cash.

‘Demand Waterfall.’ Forrester’s reports on various business, technology and marketing topics are designed for business and tech leaders, centered these days around what it calls “customer-obsessed strategies.”

Headquartered in Wilton, Connecticut, SiriusDecisions is focused on providing a “Sirius Way” methodology that is based on best practices and intended to help optimize marketing, sales and product operations.

One of SiriusDecisions’ calling cards is its “Demand Waterfall” model, used by B2B firms’ sales and marketing teams to help coordinate their assessment and management of new business leads and the sales process.

‘Deeper operational understanding.’ In a statement, the companies said the deal will allow them to cross-sell services, expand the SiriusDecisions platform into IT and customer experience, move it into financial services, healthcare and other vertical markets that Forrester covers, and accelerate international growth plans, especially through Forrester’s global sales force and channels.

Victor Milligan, Forrester CMO, emailed me that this new combined entity allows his company’s clients to “understand and embrace large sweeping changes [in the market] as well as execute and drive performance every day.” SiriusDecisions provides “a deeper operational understanding” that will help to tune Forrester’s strategic advice, he added.

Forrester CFO Michael Doyle said he expects the addition of SiriusDecisions will add about $100 million to Forrester’s 2019 revenue. Milligan told me the SiriusDecisions brand will be maintained, as well as “The Sirius Way.”

Why this matters to marketers. This acquisition is the latest expansive move by Forrester, in this case bringing an additional operational methodology into its portfolio. In July, the research firm picked up customer feedback player FeedbackNow and the analytics company GlimpzIt, planning to use them as the engines to evolve its CX (customer experience) Index into a real-time CX Cloud.

Given the wide availability of various kinds of business research, Forrester and competitors like Gartner are taking their own advice by keeping ahead of the rapidly changing market. The arc of their evolution, such as Forrester’s major move into customer-focused strategy, traces the latest direction of marketing and business intelligence.

EU consumer groups accuse Google of violating GDPR with location history

629 454 kevin

Location-tracking illustration from Norwegian consumer advocacy organization, Forbrukerrådet.

Characterizing smartphone location awareness as a form of “spying,” consumer groups in seven European countries are filing complaints with their respective data protection regulators against Google. The groups are all part of the BEUC network.

What happened. The groups contend that Google has violated the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in terms of how it captures and uses smartphone location data. Each regulator is empowered to impose significant fines should the complaints be found meritorious. At the center of the complaints is the allegation that Google has not fully disclosed how it collects and uses location data and users have not freely consented to its use.

The BEUC’s press release says Google “uses various tricks and practices to ensure users have [location] features enabled and does not give them straightforward information about what this effectively entails. These unfair practices leave consumers in the dark about the use of their personal data. Additionally they do not give consumers a real choice other than providing their location data, which is then used by the company for a wide range of purposes including targeted advertising. These practices are not compliant with the GDPR.”

The BEUC’s discussion implies deliberate deception on Google’s part, which I think is unwarranted. However, Google has generally not done a good job of educating people about how it captures and uses location, which fuels this suspicion.

BEUC is an umbrella group representing 43 independent consumer organizations

Similar to U.S. controversy. The claims at the center of the EU consumer complaints are identical to those raised not long ago in an AP story in which Google was similarly accused of tracking user location even when location history was turned off, through “Web & App Activity.”

Location is one of the key features of the smartphone, allowing users’ experiences to be tailored based on where they are and what they appear to be doing. It’s also used for ad targeting and offline attribution. But location data can be abused if privacy protections are not in place. The BEUC is pointing out hypothetical abuses, but that doesn’t mean such data isn’t already being used for questionable purposes. China, for example, is building a database of all its citizens to track and monitor them, demonstrating the malevolent applications of technologies such as smartphone location and facial recognition.

Earlier this month, in a similar case involving user location, the French data protection authority said that mobile advertising company Vectaury had violated GDPR consent rules by collecting location data in the background through SDKs and ad exchanges. The French regulator gave the company three months to change its consent practices to come into compliance with GDPR.

What’s at stake for marketers. Location data is extremely valuable to the ecosystem and stricter privacy rules, which now exist in Europe and soon will exist in the U.S., threaten the free flow of that data. There’s no way around more explicit disclosures and (in Europe) consent for secondary uses of location. Google will almost certainly be compelled to make changes to its policies and language.

More importantly, the industry in the U.S. needs to educate consumers about location data, how it’s used and assure them that personal information is safeguarded. If companies reliant on location data — which now includes retailers, large agencies and an increasing number of CPG brands — fail to do this there will be a significant consumer (and regulatory) backlash that will further undermine already fraying trust in large internet companies.

From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, consumers spend more than $4 billion on mobile

800 450 kevin

Over this past weekend, shoppers turned increasingly to smartphones to shop — and buy. Data from Adobe, Salesforce, Shopify and Rakuten all show significant growth in the use of mobile devices over last year, though the specific numbers are somewhat inconsistent.

More mobile traffic and sales. Salesforce reported that on Thanksgiving Day, mobile devices generated 68 percent of retail site traffic. More significantly the company said that, for the first time, 54 percent of orders were placed on smartphones.

Shopify, which has a larger percentage of small merchants on its platform, reported an even higher mobile conversion share. The company said that over the Black Friday to Cyber Monday period, “66 percent of sales from Shopify merchants were made on mobile, compared to 34 percent made on desktop during this time.”

By contrast, Adobe reported that Cyber Monday posted a record $7.9 billion in sales, which made it the largest online shopping day in the U.S., beating last year’s $6.6 billion and Black Friday’s $6.2 billion this year.

More than $4 billion in sales. However mobile transactions represented a minority of total sales on Cyber Monday, according to Adobe’s data. On Black Friday, mobile drove almost 34 percent of purchases. On Cyber Monday, over 54 percent of retail site visits came from mobile devices but only 28 percent of purchases. Black Friday and Cyber Monday smartphone combined sales exceeded $4 billion.

Finally, Raukuten reported that mobile devices showed the largest transaction growth over the long weekend, with mobile revenues increasing 52 percent and mobile conversions growing 61 percent. The company said that 31 percent of Cyber Monday buying happened on smartphones.

What matters to marketers. The obvious takeaway is that creating a compelling mobile experience is critical for retail success, whether pure e-commerce or omnichannel. The data sources agree that the majority of retail traffic was driven by smartphones and tablets. And increasingly sales are going to be on smartphones.

Next year there will likely be consensus among the data sources that smartphones are driving at least as many conversions as the desktop.
