  • 12. 12 Our services – eCommerce and Mobile Today, consumers are always online, mobile and have more power than ever before. 'Consumerization' is the name of the game, these days: consumers expect companies to meet their demands and consider their feedback. In short, proactive companies can no longer afford to ignore eCommerce. Accessing the world of eCommerce, however, is a big, complex step. You have to bring together digital specialists, experts in mobile solutions and people with extensive experience in retail processes. Consumers buy online via smartphones. There are call center applications and more and more shops house in-store kiosks. A growing number of eCommerce applications is available for tablets like the iPad and sales reps use tablets to present and sell their products at customers' sites. Delaware has the required expertise and experience to build these solutions for you, be they integrated (or not) into a total solution.

The capacity to digest it all often fails to keep pace •The solution? Provide improved data navigation and enable faster recall of that business data, through 'Search' – the fundamental technology platform that allows individuals to collaborate more effectively. Search •Portals have been around for quite some time now. While many enterprise portals are clearly delivering value, others are struggling to do so. Enterprises are currently facing two main trends: consumerization and Enterprise 2.0. •The 'Digital Natives', i.e. individuals who were born and grew up during the era of the Web are pushing the limits in how to interact with the different online channels an organization uses. They are demanding powerful tools, such as wikis, blogs, shared bookmarks and other social interactions. •Having grown up with the Internet, these young workers are hard-wired with Web 2.0 reflexes. Delaware Consulting considers a portal to interact with these different demographic/psychographic groups; a basic ingredient to a company's success. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2010 is a big 'game changer' in the portal world. Portals •Effective information sharing, content management and collaboration - these aspects are crucial to any successful business in today's knowledge society.
