Two of my fellow Google+ connections out here  +Susan Emerick and +Chris Boudreaux   have co-authored a book together about Brand Management, Marketing & Social Media. If you are into Marketing at all and are also interested in social media, it will be a good book for you to read. It will be available in just a few weeks. I have a special link to a site where you can buy the printed book, the ebook, or both if you wish. http://www.informit.com/store/most-powerful-brand-on-earth-how-to-transform-teams-9780133115390

Analytics is such an important trend in business today. Leading-edge businesses have realized that embracing advanced analytics solutions and services can help them identify their most profitable customers, accelerate product innovation, optimize supply chains and pricing, and identify the true drivers of financial performance.

It's my feeling that those leading-edge businesses that fully embrace advanced analytics will be the ones that will be successfully prepared to leverage the cognitive systems era.

For more on analytics, check out my trend report.

Story
Introduction

Bill Chamberlin is a Principal Client Analyst reporting into IBM’s Corporate Marketing & Communications team. Please note that Bill's comments and opinions are his own....and does not represent the position of his employer.

Since 2001, Bill has led strategic research projects for IBM on emerging technologies and business opportunities like Smarter Transportation and Cloud Computing. The last last few years he's been focusing on the topic of social media marketing.

Bill joined IBM in 1981 as a Systems Engineer and worked in Customer Sales and Sales Management positions until the early 1990’s. Since then, he has led primary and secondary research projects, facilitated marketing strategy planning workshops and taught Marketing classes to IBMers worldwide.

In the mid 1990’s he led a global business process team tasked with reengineering IBM’s marketing processes, professional disciplines and market planning documents. An output of that work was the recommendation to strengthen IBM capabilities in marketing and strategy professional disciplines, which IBM has since fully implemented.

The last eleven years, Bill has devoted much of his time to helping IBM develop a view into the future, by creating and leading an internal IBM community called HorizonWatch. The 1900 member community is interested in understanding future customer business issues/trends and how that might translate into growth opportunities for IBM. Bill supports the community with a daily blog, conference calls, and community jam sessions.

Away from his day job, Bill has been creating a community on the public Internet called HorizonWatching. You can find HorizonWatching on Typepad, Tumblr, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Slideshare. You can find those sites by searching in Google for "HorizonWatching". His comments on these community and social networks are his own comments and opinions and do not represent the views of his employer.

Bill has a Masters of Management (1995) with a concentration in marketing and management strategy from Kellogg Graduate School of Management (Evanston, Illinois. Bill is an avid golfer, enjoys fitness activities, and reading. He lives with his wife and his two daughters in Palatine, Illinois.

My front lawn had to be replaced three years in a row because of an undetected disease fhe first few years. Needless to say I was not happy. The third year I had it reseeded again in the fall of 2013. In the spring of 2014 the seeding was not coming in as full as I wanted. To be sure the lawn would take, I contacted Mark at Emerald Lawn Care. I had never used a Lawn Care company before. Mark came out and promised to have the lawn looking good in no time. He was right. With the help of Mark's team at Emerald Lawn Care, my lawn is now looking the best it has ever looked. As an added benefit, he was able to eliminate some real tough weed problems in my back yard that I had tried to fixt for years. I highly recommend Emerald Lawn Care.

I had a tire blow out late in the afternoon. Based on all my previous experience with Advanced, I knew I wanted them to replace it so I had it towed there. I talked to Dave and explained I needed the car by 11am the next morning. He said they would not be able to get a matching tire in until the morning, but he would work hard to get it done in time. Truth was, I was a little concerned they would not have the car ready for me and I really needed the car by 11am as I was planning on using that car to drive round trip down to Bloomington Indiana. At 9:30am the next morning, Dave called and said the car would be ready by 10am. Once again the team at Advanced delivered on their promise. I picked up the car, drove it to Bloomington Indiana and back that same day. Thanks Dave....

If you are willing to drive just 5 minutes south of downtown Bloomington on Walnut street you will find this treasure of a place to stay. I just stayed at this family-owned hotel this past weekend and truly enjoyed the experience. My room was clean and came with everything I needed, including a table, desk, refrigerator, microwave, cable TV and high-speed WIFI. I will never stay again at one of the hotels on the north/west side of Bloomington/IU again.....this hotel has everything I need at 1/3 the price!! On top of all that, it is a family run business....not some large corporation operation. I highly recommend you check out this hotel.
