  28. 28. Governance As with the telephone, the copier, the fax, e-mail, the Internet itself, social media will take its place as a tool of business. We will establish a responsible set of policies and practices to ensure that it enters business through the front door […] We will grapple with issues of governance and risk. We hope to emerge with policies and guidelines that all business can adopt. - Jon Iwata, IBM CMO: “Toward a New Profession: Brand, Constituency and Eminence on the Global Commons” <ul><li>Know and follow IBM's Business Conduct Guidelines. </li></ul><ul><li>IBMers are personally responsible for the content they publish on-line. </li></ul><ul><li>Identify yourself—name and, when relevant, role at IBM—when you discuss IBM or IBM-related matters, such as IBM products or services. You must make it clear that you are speaking for yourself and not on behalf of IBM. </li></ul><ul><li>If you publish content online relevant to IBM in your personal capacity use a disclaimer such as this: &quot;The postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent IBM's positions, strategies or opinions.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Respect copyright, fair use and financial disclosure laws. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't provide IBM's or another's confidential or other proprietary information and never discuss IBM business performance or other sensitive matters publicly. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't cite or reference clients, partners or suppliers without their approval. When you do make a reference, link back to the source. Don't publish anything that might allow inferences to be drawn which could embarrass or damage a client. </li></ul><ul><li>Respect your audience. Don't use ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, or engage in any conduct that would not be acceptable in IBM's workplace. You should also show proper consideration for others' privacy and for topics that may be considered objectionable or inflammatory—such as politics and religion. </li></ul><ul><li>Be aware of your association with IBM in online social networks. If you identify yourself as an IBMer, ensure your profile and related content is consistent with how you wish to present yourself with colleagues and clients. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't pick fights, be the first to correct your own mistakes. </li></ul><ul><li>Try to add value. Provide worthwhile information and perspective.

  38. 38. Forrester Research The 2011 Listening Platform Landscape December 2010 Customer intelligence (CI) professionals require more from their listening platforms because they no longer just passively track online discussion. Instead, they use their listening platform to identify and act on insights found within social media. Now, listening platforms must deliver insights — not just data — and the ability to act on the insights. … social media sits in a silo with separate tools and technologies for analyzing the data. But, like any form of customer data, the future of social media is just more fuel for CI professionals. As firms progress their use of social media data, they’ll begin to integrate it with their broader customer databases.
  39. 39. Gartner Research Social Media Makes Marketing Metrics More Meaningful September 2010 Enterprise marketers and IT leaders must work together to build out high-capacity analytic platforms that combine traditional metrics and research methods with social-media analysis (SMA) to meet the challenges of contemporary marketing optimization and ROI analysis. Tying SMA, which is predominantly delivered as software as a service (SaaS), to offline channel results presents a particularly difficult integration challenge. Social media is not just an outbound engagement medium; it's also an intelligence acquisition process that can add value to many enterprise processes.

  41. 41. Consumer Packaged Goods Company <ul><li>Business Pain Points </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of visibility into evolving consumer trends and emerging competitors </li></ul><ul><li>Need to improve response to new regulatory and health policy trends </li></ul><ul><li>Poor insight into campaign effectiveness – “Are our messages being understood and absorbed into the social media discussion? Are sponsorships giving us a ROI?” </li></ul><ul><li>Why IBM </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to integrate CCI social media insight with internal data – a key differentiator against smaller, siloed “listening” solutions </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to leverage IBM’s broader analytics capabilities, including predictive… CCI becomes an integral part of market analytics </li></ul><ul><li>Highly scalable CCI architecture, based on the InfoSphere Big Insights (Hadoop) platform </li></ul><ul><li>The Solution </li></ul><ul><li>IBM Cognos Consumer Insight - Tier 2 license </li></ul><ul><li>Expansion of CCI deployment into other brands now under review </li></ul><ul><li>The Value Equation </li></ul><ul><li>Leverage of CCI structured data, extracted from very large volumes of social media, to enhance predictive models and correlations with other business data (e.g. POS, campaign spend) </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to embed CCI analytic components and data streams into main-screen brand management “war rooms” </li></ul><ul><li>Potential to deploy across multiple brands, for a normalized view of social media health that permits comparison and sharing of best practices </li></ul><ul><li>World leader in snacks, foods, and beverages </li></ul><ul><li>Revenues of $60 billion and over 285,000 employees </li></ul><ul><li>Single social media strategy being pushed out across all brands and geographies </li></ul>
  42. 42. Customer example - personal care products company <ul><li>Lots of chatter due to her “next top model” TV appearances, but brand or company names were mentioned in only 3% of social media postings </li></ul><ul><li>One of the other brands championed by the model accounted for the majority of the mentions </li></ul><ul><li>TV appearances by the model generated no buzz around sponsored brand </li></ul>Sponsorship of well known model, who also advertises other, non-competing brands The company used details behind these insights to provide advice to the model on how to alter her sponsored mentions and generate brand association and sponsorship ROI Evolving Topics
  43. 43. Customer example - personal care products company Hair care manufacturer finds out what consumers really chat about <ul><li>Their earlier analysis of Google search requests suggested that hair problems formed a significant part of what consumers care about… </li></ul><ul><li>… but CCI showed that people rarely chatted about their hair problems when discussing and comparing hair care products </li></ul>The marketing messages were re-focused in line with a more nuanced insight – promoting what customers want for their hair to harmonize with the social media agenda
  44. 44. Customer example - detergent manufacturer Washing powder manufacturer tunes into a new thread of dialog on what consumers like and dislike about the competition Discussions by Topic/Concern Competitive Brands “ Smell” Related Discussions by Brand Drill down “ Seriously, I definitely can’t recommend [brand A] to anyone with a sensitive nose! After 2 wash loads, the whole house smells – urgh!!” “ Have again bought [brand E]. I just can’t take the smell of [brand A] any more and fortunately the bottle is almost empty. Somehow, my clothes start smelling kind of sour after a couple of days in the closet, when I’ve used [brand A] ” Further drill down provides new insight for the product development lab on consumer sensitivities and an opportunity to capitalize with a quick-response competitive campaign
  45. 45. Customer example – sporting goods product launch at the FIFA World Cup Event Launch of new product Start of FIFA World Cup Relationship Analytics confirms that the marketing messages and sponsorship investments are working Marketing spend is generating buzz and “share of voice” is solid The new product maintaining a good positive-negative ratio over time compared to competitors Tracking emerging topics helped to stay ahead of the issues and the competition
  46. 46. Customer example – PepsiCo Gatorade War Room
  47. 47. Search billions of blog posts and hundreds of thousands of forums and discussion groups on publicly available websites to measure the effectiveness of your social media campaigns and the sentiment of consumer opinions of your brand and company Search – <ul><li>Highly scalable and robust search that can pull snippets from multiple social media channels, such as blogs, posts and discussions forums, Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to configure with user-defined business rules, or analytics, to create snippets of consumer opinions that can be searched by different dimensions, such as date, keyword or region </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible search by specifying attributes for your analysis, while modifying sentiment to analyze the same content from a different perspective </li></ul>
  48. 48. <ul><li>Gain insight into affinity relationships in your search of your campaigns’ hot words to more agilely and precisely modify messaging for your campaigns </li></ul><ul><li>Anticipate new opportunities to engage audiences on specific subject areas with the words and messages that resonate with and are specific to their interests and perspectives </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate campaign messaging by analyzing affinity contexts and associations with corporate and brand values to ascertain responsiveness and reaction to reputation, customer service and corporate social responsibility activities </li></ul>Affinity Relationships – Understand the relationship between different areas of analysis and view the snippets that are associated with their intersection to gauge impact and identify future messages among key audiences
