Architecture Matters

The intent of this blog is to discuss and help answer some of those questions about technology and architecture, and explore the benefits and the implications of different approaches. Should I choose private or public cloud for customer service? What’s the best way to integrate analytics for improved customer insights and a more personalized customer experience? What are the implications of bring your own device (BYOD) engagement models on data availability, security and privacy? We’ll explore these and other important questions through this blog.
