Creating the elusive single customer view
In my opinion, finding CRM duplicates is relatively well understood.

The greater challenge is how to manage them once identified and minimize the human intervention required to identify the best (golden) record and then merge 1:1 data and re-align 1:M data before retiring the duplicates.

To overcome these challenges we have built deduplication and merging technology for CRM's and databases so that businesses can capitalize on higher quality data and minimize costly human intervention.

Craft beer - for the haves and the Germans
Hi Owen

First off what a pleasure to read a well crafted (no pun) article such as yours, really an enjoyable and flowing piece.

With this predicament of pricing, stemming ultimately from high costs, I would always present the opportunity to 'collaborate'. My favourite marketing author of all time, Andy Davis, describes the benefits in terms of 'a rising tide lifts all ships'.

Whilst the idea of several breweries in Cape Town utilising a single location to create their masterpieces may restrict somewhat the job creation, this solution can be viewed perhaps as an 'Incubation Facility' whilst the go-getters build a following, their credibility and relationships with stockists and suppliers alike, until ready to fly the nest and invest in their own facilities.

Im not aware if SAB or the like have such initiatives in place, I can certainly say though that it would give a lot of these small scale brewers some great forward movement, expertise lending and that key cost reduction they need to keep the snowball rolling.

Just my two cents...

Cheers

Operation Phakisa to move SA forward
Operation Phakisa - from a Sesotho word, which means "Hurry Up." but actually it means that Jacob Zuma has only the present term as the President of South Africa which is his last and therefore he and his family have to hurry up with the looting of the taxpayer's money before his term ends in 2019.

Hlaudi hands out thank-you bonuses to SABC staffers
So another R42 million of tax payers money goes to propping up a completely mis-managed institution - not to mention the fact that employees will now feel incentivised to publish Zuma propoganda

It's all in the logo
I really like this! Branding should be all about who you are, what you stand for and how serious you are about doing what you do [how sustainable your business wants to be]. Your logo to some extent should encapsulate that. When people encounter your logo it should remind them of lots more than just what you sell!

Insider
Purge continues at Independent Media
As an insider working at the independent group it is a sad, sad time for everyone. The best people have already left and what few remain are simply trying to find a way to find work elsewhere. Circulations have dropped and the only people left are inexperienced or without options. It is inevitable that some great newspapers are going to close sooner rather than later and the South African landscape will be poorer for it. Internal intimidation is rife. However, the good news is that the demise of the IN group surely leaves a gap for a credible publication that could take advantage of the amazing talent out there looking for a job. In everything, even this, there is opportunity.

I suppose, based on this article all currently suspended (and there are a lot according to sources) and individuals currently facing disciplinary action also received the "bonus"...?

Hlaudi hands out thank-you bonuses to SABC staffers
I really dont see why we have to be judgemental of this. SABC has been under pressure for such a long time and that affected the employees directly. we receive such a great service from sabc even though they were under such difficulty. I believe this is to boost employee moral and i say its well deserved.

I strongly agree with you Sir, South Africans needs to up their game and stop coming up with nonsensical excuses such as Mr Zamuxolo Matiwana did.

Dogs can get their love and Epol
The Epol factory in Pretoria West upsets me. The dogs they use as security (Alsatians and Rottweilers) are left to run in cement "passages" all around the outside of the premises. They have a little roof to sit under, but we all know Pretoria heat in the summer. No grass, and just not the way to treat an animal as far as I am concerned. I wouldn't support their brand.

I Protect Me celebrates women by teaching them how to protect themselves against physical violence. 85% of safety is in our own hands. We teach women simple self-protection skills to enable them to desist, run away and report. Can you believe that a 16 year old got away from two men with guns by poking the man in front in the eyes, kicking the other in the shin and saw the third one run away? Can you believe that a 60 year old got away from two men as they surrounded her?Can you believe that a 6 year old girl threw sand in a man's face and got away? We ask organisations to come and learn these skills so that they can transfer the training to their beneficiaries free of charge.Email

Prioritising responsive design
Hey Greg, nice article I am completely agree with your thoughts. Another fact about Responsive web design is that if you are building responsive design for your business or personal website with static information in most part then you have no need to build apps for various devices, helps to save both time and money.

Know what makes your brand succeed - or not
On different fields they have, they made a successful business, like IKEA which primarily promote furniture. Almost every household have their home furnished with IKEA stuff., that make sense a part of marketing strategy, when you talk about IKEA, no one doesn't know it.

Regards.
