Forrester predictions for CMO role are dire, but there is hope for current CMOs

first_img Posted on 31st October 2019Digital Marketing FacebookshareTwittertweetGoogle+share Forrester predictions for CMO role are dire, but there is hope for current CMOsYou are here: The role of the chief marketing officer (CMO) has been increasingly scrutinized in recent years. Dozens of CMO positions have been axed from some of the world’s most recognizable brands, including McDonald’s which replaced the role with a new SVP marketing technology position. CMOs who remain will need to prepare to handle even more pressure to prove their organizational value in 2020, says a new Forrester report.In 2018 Forrester predicted a decline in Fortune 100 CMOs. Since then, organizations have started to part ways with CMOs, reallocating their responsibilities to leaders such as the CIO. 2020 is predicted to be a critical year for CMOs to deliver seamless customer experiences with their martech investments and, crucially, generate attributable revenue from those martech-enabled experiences. Why we should careThe CMO has evolved from a position focused on long-term brand-building activities to owning everything from branding and communications to martech investments, product innovation and operations. Marketing has also transitioned to a revenue center. Today’s CMOs need to align these components to orchestrate customer experiences (CX) that drive long-term relationships between brands and their customers. CMOS should foster an integrated marketing environment and a data-driven approach across their teams — including having strong data governance practices in place — to deliver more connected customer experiences with increased personalization. “Businesses can no longer afford any amount of disconnect or fragmentation in the brand,” the Forrester Predictions 2020: CMO (purchased required) report says.Martech spend continues to take a solid chunk out of CMOs’ budgets, and while spending slowed this year, the report warns that CMOs approach martech investments cautiously — and more strategically. “Rather than blindly dumping more money into tech spend, we’ve delivered growth with a strategy built around creative engagement with our customers through existing channels,” Chris Brandt, CMO of Chipotle told Forrester.More on the newsIn addition to creating better CX and managing martech, Forrester analysts predict that the best CMOs will establish a span of control in the name of customer value and brand continuity.CMOs will also remain crucial to building their organizations by delivering their brands’ beliefs to acquire talent and drive employee loyalty.The post Forrester predictions for CMO role are dire, but there is hope for current CMOs appeared first on Marketing Land.From our sponsors: Forrester predictions for CMO role are dire, but there is hope for current CMOs Related postsLytics now integrates with Google Marketing Platform to enable customer data-informed campaigns14th December 2019The California Consumer Privacy Act goes live in a few short weeks — Are you ready?14th December 2019ML 2019121313th December 2019Global email benchmark report finds email isn’t dead – it’s essential13th December 20192019 benchmark report: brand vs. non-brand traffic in Google Shopping12th December 2019Keep your LinkedIn advertising strategy focused in 202012th December 2019 HomeDigital MarketingForrester predictions for CMO role are dire, but there is hope for current CMOslast_img read more

New evidence that parts of Ebola virus hide in semen for months

first_imgAlthough researchers have known since 1999 that traces of the Ebola virus could remain in semen for months, two papers published in The New England Journal of Medicine today offer more detail about the frightening possibility that survivors of an infection could rekindle outbreaks. One study focuses on nearly 100 men in Sierra Leone who survived the dreaded viral illness, whereas the second one documents a clear case of sexual transmission of Ebola virus.In the Sierra Leone study, researchers found Ebola viral RNA in semen samples from almost half the 93 men they tested.  The likelihood of finding viral RNA declined as time from disease onset increased: All nine men who were tested 2 to 3 months after they fell ill had evidence of Ebola RNA in their semen, but the researchers  found it in only 26 of 40 men whose infections had started 4 to 6 months earlier and in 11 of 43 men whose infections had started 7 to 9 months earlier. The result from one Ebola patient tested 10 months after disease onset was indeterminate.Detecting viral RNA does not mean that these survivors harbor a virus that’s capable of establishing an infection in a sexual partner. “We do not yet have sufficient information to assess the risk of transmission through sexual intercourse, oral sex, or other sex acts from men with viable virus in their semen,” the authors from Sierra Leone and the World Health Organization (WHO) wrote. Scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta are attempting to isolate virus from the semen samples, says Nathalie Broutet, an infectious disease epidemiologist at WHO in Geneva and one of the study’s authors.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)In the second paper, researchers from Liberia and the United States present the best evidence yet of sexual transmission. A 44-year-old woman from Montserrado County was diagnosed with Ebola on 20 March and died a week later. The country had not had a case of Ebola in the previous 30 days and there was no obvious source of infection, but the patient reported having had unprotected vaginal intercourse with an Ebola survivor on 7 March. The man had contracted Ebola in September 2014 and left the Ebola treatment unit after testing negative for the virus in early October. A semen sample from the man, taken in March 2015, tested positive for Ebola, and genetic analysis of the woman’s virus showed that it was distinct from the most recent clusters in Liberia and neighboring countries. Importantly, her virus was all but identical to the one isolated from the survivor: Only one base pair differed between the two genomes. The “unique gene signatures in the sample obtained from the semen of the survivor and the deceased woman I think really provides conclusive evidence,” says study co-author Vincent Munster, a virologist at the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda, Maryland.CDC’s Broutet says sexual transmission is suspected in about 20 West African cases. The WHO changed its advice  to survivors in May this year after evidence showed that the virus could persist much longer in semen than previously thought. The guidelines now advise survivors to abstain from sex or use a condom for 6 months or until their semen tests negative. Given that there are thousands of male survivors who could spread the virus through sex, “the chances of seeing sporadic cases igniting small outbreaks is very real,” says Jonathan Ball, a virologist at the University of Nottingham, in the United Kingdom.The papers come amid news that Pauline Cafferkey, a British nurse who fell ill with Ebola in December 2014 and survived, was in critical condition at Royal Free Hospital in London and being treated “for Ebola” after having apparently suffered a relapse. All of this shows that the virus has the potential to surprise scientists, Munster says. “An outbreak of this magnitude has never happened before with Ebola virus, so I think we need to realize that data gathered from the previous outbreaks might not be sufficient.”Survivors have already endured a painful illness and often lost loved ones, Armand Sprecher of Doctors Without Borders in Brussels cautions in an editorial that accompanies the two papers. “If they are then treated as pariahs and threats, we add a terrible unkindness on top of their suffering,” Sprecher writes. “They should be treated with all the compassion we can muster.”WHO today released a situation report that said for the second straight week, no new cases of Ebola virus have been confirmed in any West African country.last_img read more

Millennials will have to deal with Ontarios debt unless action taken watchdog

first_imgTORONTO – Millennials will have to foot the bill for Ontario’s rising debt over the next three decades if the government doesn’t hike taxes or cut spending by $6.5 billion annually to address major demographic changes, the province’s fiscal watchdog warned Thursday.As the baby boom generation ages, the province’s economy will change, experiencing slow revenue growth and requiring increased spending on social programs like health care, Ontario’s Financial Accountability Office explained.Consequently, government debt — which currently sits at $312 billion — will be driven up unless taxes are increased or spending is cut beginning next year, the office warned in its long-term budget outlook.“If these difficult fiscal changes are postponed the burden of stabilizing Ontario’s public finances would be increasingly, and arguably unfairly, shifted from the baby boom generation to younger Ontarians,” said David West, the FAO’s chief economist.The FAO report, which took a year to research, said balancing the province’s budget annually won’t be enough to offset the financial impacts of the aging demographic. The government must generate surpluses and use that cash to pay down debt, it said.West acknowledged, however, that a $6.5 billion tax increase or spending cut would have large budget implications.“(It’s) roughly equivalent to eliminating funding for 40 per cent of the province’s hospitals, raising the HST rate by two percentage points, or a 25 per cent increase in federal transfers,” he said.The report recommends the Ontario government stick to a promise it made to drop the provinces’ debt-to-gross domestic product ratio from its current level at 40 per cent to 27 per cent by 2030. West said the measure, which gauges the province’s ability to pay back and manage debt interest payments, would actually increase to 63 per cent by 2050 if significant fiscal changes aren’t made.“Since the demographic pressures on the budget will not intensify until the mid-2020s it will be tempting to postpone or even ignore the difficult fiscal policy changes that are going to be required to stabilize or reduce Ontario’s debt burden,” he said, adding that would result in higher costs to reduce the debt.Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa said the province takes the FAO’s findings seriously, but he would not commit to either hiking taxes or slashing spending. The province will find ways to foster further debt management, he said.“In all of Ontario’s history, for that matter even Canadian history, very little has ever occurred in terms of reduction in actual debt,” he said. “Ontario’s debt is managed by its ability to support growth in our economy. I am very sensitive to the degree of debt.”Ontario Progressive Conservative finance critic Vic Fedeli called the FAO report a “bleak and stark” budget picture.“The debt is going to crowd out the services that families need like health and education,” he said. “All the things people have come to rely on they will struggle to pay for and the baby boomers debt will now roll over to the younger Ontarians.”Peter Tabuns, an NDP legislator said the government has been fiscally irresponsible and has tried to deal with budget shortfalls by selling off public assets.“Their whole approach is one that’s making the fiscal picture in Ontario much tougher,” he said.last_img read more

VWs batteryrecycling mobile EV chargers can charge 4 cars at once

Volkswagen Even though an EV’s battery might be considered “dead” when it loses a certain amount of its capacity, that doesn’t mean its remaining capability can’t be used for green purposes. Enter Volkswagen’s new mobile charger, which will rely on old batteries to juice up new ones.While VW originally unveiled its concept mobile charger in January, it didn’t offer much in the way of actual facts and figures. But that changes this week. These chargers are engineered to hold up to 360 kilowatt-hours of charge, and they can handle up to four vehicles charging simultaneously with a maximum quick-charge draw of 100 kilowatts.Its mobility should provide a number of benefits. While it can remain close to a power source to provide a constant flow of energy like a static charger, it can also be disconnected and wheeled around to areas that might not have a handy hookup. Volkswagen noted that this means it can go to areas that EV chargers wouldn’t otherwise serve, like music festivals. Finally, somebody’s thinking about all those poor folks at Coachella!As Volkswagen stated back in January, these chargers will run on depleted batteries from EVs running on the automaker’s MEB scalable electric-vehicle platform. Of course, there are no MEB-equipped cars on the road just yet, so VW’s first run of mobile chargers will likely use fresh batteries. The first charger is expected to go online in Germany next year, with full production commencing in 2020.Once those batteries can’t even hold enough charge for that job, they’ll be sent to VW’s Salzgitter facility, where the batteries will be properly recycled, with the automaker seeking to use the reclaimed raw materials for use in new batteries. Right now, the facility is able to recycle 53% of a battery’s parts, with the hope to raise that figure to 72%, then to 97% in the future. VW says it’ll be able to handle 1,200 tons of EV batteries per year to start, which covers enough batteries for 3,000 vehicles. Share your voice Volkswagenlast_img read more
