Continuous delivery methods are increasingly being used to deliver the right content at the right time to global consumers. The "information now" generations, as well as a desire by companies to improve customer experience and generate brand differentiation, are drivers.
In a global context, the challenges with getting global content out are varied and complex. In this webinar recording, Marriott's Sonia Zamborsky and Danfoss's Pasi Savola discuss with Dave Ruane from Xplanation current challenges they face, the options they pursue for overcoming them, and insights that have helped them achieve results in the realm of continuous delivery. If you have an interest in customer experience, agile, and continuous delivery, you can watch this webinar for distinct perspectives from the hospitality and manufacturing industries. 

Discussion includes:

  • The role of Continuous Delivery in global content lifecycles
  • Product flux: What is the minimum viable product to make the sale?
  • Process: what to translate, "one size fits all" versus right sized models, fine-tuned content to market, linking with agile sprint schedules
  • The Gain equation - What are the relative "Time to market", "Customer Experience",  "Revenue and cost" gains and losses
  • Quality: absolute versus usable versus informational, role of live telemetry  
  • Customer Experience: Content modularisation, on-demand content, future proofing  and new platforms(IOT, VR, AR)
