Building a Smarter Planet From IBM's website: "With technology now infused into every aspect of commerce, the entire craft of marketing becomes more instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. This leads to profound changes in ways the discipline is understood, led and practiced."

Three mandates for the new CMO have taken shape
Paint a predictive picture of each customer as an individualon a massive scale.
Instrument all key touch points to gather the right data about each customer.
Connect social media data, transaction data and other information to paint a more vivid picture of each customer.

Generate insights that are predictive, not just historical.
Build capabilities to do this on a massive scale. Smarter Planet Marketing Plan Question Time!

Question 3
Team 3! 3.)How can IBM communicate its strategy to companies, cities, and governments? How is Watson a part of the communication strategy? Answer:
The current CEO of IBM, Sam Palmisano, sent out a letter for their annual report, titled “Letter from the Chariman”. In this letter, he had a powerful statement about the Smarter Planet. According to him, Smarter Planet “is not a metaphor. It describes the infusion of intelligence into the way the world actually works, the way that almost anything-any person, any object, any process or any service, for any organization, large or small-can now become digitally aware, networked, and intelligent.” Palmisano also met with some Wall Street financial advisors and held six-hour information sessions with investors to answer questions about their business strategy. IBM also used print and TV ads to campaign in more detail what Palmisano’s message was. These ads focused on the ability to improve the world now, with the help from IBM. The IBM website also supported the campaign with industry reports, video descriptions of the smarter planet concept, and stats about the improvements at smarter planet clients.
Watson, which is an artificial intelligence program, was also part of the communication strategy. Watson was featured on the game show Jeopardy!, and competed against two different contestants, and won both times. By having Watson on TV, where millions of people could view it, this was one more way to provide a consistent and integrated message.
Question 4
Team 2! 4.)What are the benefits of the Smarter Planet initiative to a) society and b) IBM?

Answer: a)Some benefits of the Smarter Planet initiative within society have been:
•the retailers who implemented smart systems to analyze buying behavior, merchandise assortment, and demand were able to cut supply chain costs by 30% , reduce inventory levels by 25%, and increase sales by 10%.
•The Memphis Police Department reduced crime by 28% by using IBM solutions to analyze its data.
•Banks are also using smart systems to track loans and manage risk, increasing efficiency and customer service.

b)Some benefits of the Smarter Planet initiative within IBM have been:

•Since introducing the Smarter Planet strategy, IBM has collaborated with more than 600 organizations around the globe.
The success of this strategy can be seen in the broad range of industries where “smart” solutions are being implemented.
Examples: banking, communications, electronics, automotive, and aerospace, energy and utilities, government, health care, insurance, oil and gas, retailing, and transportation.

Final Question, Let's get a volunteer! 5.)How should IBM measure the results of the Smarter Planet strategy? We believe that IBM should send out surveys to each of the companies, cities, and governments that they have been in contact with, to see if their product is continuously working. It would be good for IBM to get feedback on their products so that they can either better their products and improve within their company.
