With new technologies, new opportunities often emerge, especially in business. The advent of innovations, such as social media and mobile devices, is changing the ways businesses interact with customers and the ways in which customers desire to be engaged. Opportunities arising from the benefits of salesforce automation, business intelligence (BI), and customer relationship management (CRM) applications are providing new levels of insight, helping businesses acquire customers more efficiently and retain those customers longer. As a direct result, organizations that invest in better understanding potential customers are likely to see higher returns than those organizations that possess a more limited understanding of their customer base. Seeking the competitive advantage resulting from improved customer focus, IT organizations have increased investment in business intelligence and analytics and the underlying infrastructure to support those applications.

Enterprises, beware. Threat actors are continuing to eye businesses for high returns on investment in Q1 2019, breaching infrastructure, exfiltrating or holding data hostage, and abusing weak credentials for continued, targeted monitoring. From a steadfast increase of pervasive Trojans, such as Emotet, to a resurgence of ransomware lodged against corporate targets, cybercriminals are going after organizations with a vengeance.
Yet every cloud has a silver lining, and for all the additional effort thrown at businesses, consumer threats are now on the decline. Ransomware against consumers has slowed down to a trickle and cryptomining, at a fever pitch against consumers this time last year, has all but died. Interestingly, this has resulted in an overall decline in the volume of malware detections from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019.

Marketers face a unique challenge to allocate resources across a variety of tactics to target key audiences that need their product or service – with limited information on what combination of products or services will have the optimum impact, which target audience members are ideal fits, and what allocations will provide the best return on investment to the organization. Healthcare has its own myriad of challenges, including many local, regional, and national options for consumers, service line variations, and disparate demographics. The good news is that there is an emerging understanding of digital and multichannel marketing, and ample opportunity to define best practices, systematically calculate marketing effectiveness and return on marketing investment (ROMI), and use technology and data to create great business outcomes.
