Forrester Research, Inc.: Digital Brand Building: Advance From Chasing Efficiencies To Creating Experiences

January, 2015
CMOs have embraced the measurable efficiencies of digital channels to push their messages out to customers.

5 Powerful Government Drupal Websites in Action

In today’s digital-savvy world, the most impactful government agencies have embraced digital initiatives and communications technologies, such as open source web content management systems (CMS).

State of Digital Government

State and Local Insights
In the two years since the Obama Administration launched the Digital Government Strategy, agencies -at all levels- have made significant strides to improve digital services in four major strategy areas: information-centric, shared platform, customer-centric, and security and privacy.

“The innovative use of technology is fundamentally transforming how the American people do business and live their daily lives,” said President Barack Obama in 2012 when discussing the need to create a 21st century digital government. “Innovators in the private sector and the Federal Government have used these technological advances to fundamentally change how they serve their customers.”

Making the Grade in Digital Government

Beyond Marketing: Why Digital Disruption Requires a Deeper Transformation

The forces of digital disruption have toppled established business models, magnified the significance of digital channels and competences, and initiated the “customer-centric era.” Chief marketing officers (CMOs) and their marketing organizations would seem to be ideally positioned to lead the organizational response to these disruptions.
