Commerce Reporting Standard Workshop
The Commerce Reporting Standard (CRS) is an association of qualified industry partners who seek to facilitate the entry into a data-driven decision-making culture and benchmark the industry by pooling experiences and best practices.
Regular workshops and discussions are used to promote different projects. One of the recent workshops focused on the "Onsite Customer Journey Index", developed by the project partner and technology leader in on-site marketing Akanoo. CRS community members from companies like Baumarkt direkt, REWE-Vertical ZooRoyal, the Händlerbund, mindlab and of course Akanoo, as well as the project initiators Project A and minubo, put their heads together and discussed for a whole day how the onsite behavior of the customers could be effectively mapped.
In the past, it has often been enough to have industry and market experience to develop a good gut feeling for your business. Those who knew their way around were successful. These times are over because data has long been the new currency in the business world. The digitization and internationalization of the economy is increasing the amount of available data almost exponentially. If you want to be competitive in the future and achieve economic success, you have to think "data-driven". The German family-owned company Melvin & Hamilton recognized this at an early stage and founded a company that deals with digital topics such as the “digitization” of the very traditional retail business. With the help of minubo, a data-driven working culture has been established.

Big data, AI, real-time, predictive or machine learning - when you look around in the field of BI and Analytics, one thing is obvious: Buzzwords are everywhere. And who can keep track? Of course, even though these technologies and concepts all actually exist, one often gets the impression that the naming of specific offers becomes more and more arbitrary.
Apropos of the turn of the year, it is, as always, time to bring out the crystal ball and take a look into the future. Scenarios, changes, trends - what will happen in 2019?
