  9. 9. Challenge  And  Vision Shelf  space  is  cri-cal  when  selling  athle-c  footwear   in  retail  stores.  The  more  you  have,  the  more  you   sell.  Over  the  years,  Reebok  saw  its  sales  decline  as   they  lost  shelf  space  to  compe-tors  like  Nike,  Puma   and  Converse.    Searching  for  ways  to  counteract   declining  in-­‐store  sales,  Reebok  needed  a  solu-on   that  had  staying  power.   The  agency  answered  this  challenge  using  a  Tridion   CMS  and  a  complete  Hybris  eCommerce  solu-on.  A   visually  engaging,  mul--­‐lingual,  personalized,   Text service-­‐oriented  web  powerhouse,  integra-ng   commerce  and  fulfillment  seamlessly  into  the  user   experience.     9Wednesday, 14 March, 12 9

  16. 16. Enabling  Commerce,  Crea%vity,  Efficiency Adidas  was  facing  massive  challenges  reigning  in   effec<vely  managing  product  informa<on,  enabling   commerce  and  asset  reuse  by  agencies. The  work  revolved  around  two  main  areas:   • Product  Informa%on  Management  with   ecommerce  capabili<es  not  yet  rolled  out   worldwide—and  a  legacy  product  catalog  that   made  it  difficult  to  centralize  product  data   across  the  business—the  company  needed  a   way  to  beJer  service  their  customers  and  drive   new  sales  opportuni<es  in  non-­‐ecommerce   markets  around  the  globe.    Adidas  needed  an   innova<ve  solu<on. • Content  +  Asset  Management  Agencies   working  with  adidas  had  difficulty  consuming   and  crea<ng  editorial  content.  Assets  were   distributed  across  new  and  older  content   management  systems  and  file  repositories.   Adidas  sought  to  simplify,  centralize,  reduce  and   reuse.Wednesday, 14 March, 12 16
  17. 17. Single,  Global  Product  Catalog  Des%na%on Designers  and  engineers  stepped  up  to  the  plate,   developing  a  simple  yet  powerful  online  catalog   solu<on  that  drives  business  value  for  adidas—from   front  to  back.  They  delivered  a  new  web  based   administra<on  interface  for  adidas  product  managers.     The  applica<on  was  built  using  the  Hybris  plaQorm   that  consists  of  3  core  parts:   • The  Hybris  PIM  (Product  Informa<on   Management  Suite),  which  is  a  product  catalog   management  applica<on.   • Hybris  E-­‐commerce • Hybris  Print,  this  is  a  print  catalog  solu<on They  also  implemented  our  B2C  product  catalog   admin  interface  using  the  Hybris  PIM  applica<on.    The   Hybris  plaQorm  was  selected,  because  adidas   implemented  their  B2B  catalog  using  the  Hybris  Print   solu<on.    The  Hybris  solu<on  enables  the  global  digital   team  and  the  local  markets  to  add  products  and   maintain  local  product  availability  in  one  shared   database  that  can  be  leveraged  across  mul<ple  media.     17Wednesday, 14 March, 12 17
  18. 18. Single,  Global  Product  Catalog  Des%na%on Search  engine  op<miza<on  best  prac<ces  built  in  from   the  ground  up  also  propelled  the  catalog  to  the  top  of   Google  search  results,  driving  targeted  traffic  to  the   site.    Once  there,  the  slick  AJAX  interface  provides  a   rich  and  seamless  customer  experience,  elimina<ng   the  click-­‐and-­‐wait  game  of  tradi<onal  Web  pages  and   enabling  customers  to  find  the  products  they  need   quickly  and  easily.     On  the  back  end,  an  enterprise-­‐wide  service-­‐oriented   architecture  provides  a  consistent  and  accurate  view   of  product  marke<ng  informa<on  throughout  the   organiza<on.    And  by  u<lizing  open  source   technologies,  the  catalog  provides  a  more  powerful   and  reliable  solu<on,  while  reducing  costs  across  the   enterprise.       The  solu<on  launched  on  <me  and  within  budget  in  42   countries  and  19  languages  worldwide.    The  catalog   supports  over  1500  products.Wednesday, 14 March, 12 18

  20. 20. One  Content  Source Adidas  Global  Digital  Marke<ng  came  to  the  agency   with  a  vision:  transform  the  adidas  website  into  a   sports  and  style  communica<ons  hub.    In  order  to   achieve  this  vision,  consumers  must  be  able  to  get  up-­‐ to-­‐date  relevant  content  24x7x365.     The  agency  realized  that  the  people  best  able  to  enter   the  <mely  relevant  content  were  the  folks  in  the   adidas  local  market  offices.  However,  these  offices  are   challenged  by  high  turnover,  limited  technical   exper<se  and  constantly  changing  priori<es.    Our   solu<on:  a  CMS  which  was  “as  easy-­‐to-­‐use  and   addic<ve  as  Facebook”. This  project  came  to  be  known  as  the  Micro  Content   Database,  or  MCD.  The  Tridion-­‐supported  MCD  was   built  to  support  mul<-­‐use  content  in  mind.    It   empowers  global  and  local  management  of  adidas   content  for  use  across  mul<ple  adidas  proper<es.   adidas  IT  is  happy  too;  oqen  the  stumbling  block,   overwhelmed  and  overburdened  with  update  requests   spread  across  a  <ght  team,  no  longer  slows  marke<ng   down.   20Wednesday, 14 March, 12 20
