How Myplanet uses Contentful to empower smarter interfaces

We love headless CMS at Myplanet. It’s an area of focus for us. The API middle layer is a magic key that opens the door to omnichannel touchpoints such as wearables, loT, voice, AR/VR and mobile.

Hackathons in the enterprise: Planning innovation initiatives that pay off

If you’re in a team that’s working on existing digital products, you understand the struggle of finding time to dream up and develop new features – even when you know this is what keeps you ahead. One answer to this is to run a hackathon: Take a couple of days to focus on solving specific problems, potentially saving hundreds of hours of development work while keeping engineers happy at the same time. But if you’re part of a big enterprise company, you might be thinking, OK, this works for startups but can it work for me? Absolutely it can! Read on to find out how a two-day hackathon produced real results for Telus, a multi-billion-dollar telecommunications company.

For happy customers and higher revenue, invest in your knowledge base

The most successful companies are investing in solutions that enable service teams to provide better support to more people with fewer resources. Self-service support options are appealing to customers and businesses. While most businesses have the necessary knowledge base content, it’s fragmented across product documents, email support, call scripts, etc. The challenge lies in unifying that content so that it can be managed efficiently and delivered consistently across support channels.

Why I’m going to the Ada Lovelace Festival (and you should, too!)

Ada Lovelace was a badass. She wrote one of the first computer programs when almost no women worked in tech — in 1842, to be precise. On Oct. 24–25, the Ada Lovelace Festival will celebrate her contributions and those of women leading tech today with talks, workshops and social activities.

This year’s event focuses on the topic of ownership. Speakers from leading enterprises — such as Volkswagen, Accenture and SAP — will engage with artists, activists and government officials to discuss who gets to own the future of the digital world, and how more people can be involved.

I’m thrilled to attend this year. Here are a few reasons why.
