    We’re often asked about the value of connecting data sources. Most organizations have had various kinds of data living in silos for so long that they never stop to think about how valuable that data could be if it were no longer isolated. Technology has advanced immensely in recent years and data can now be connected and analyzed in real-time, providing insights as things happen.

  10. My reflections on Intix 2018

    This year the biggest US ticketing conference, Intix, was held in Baltimore. Activity Stream was there as an exhibitor, for the second time, and these are my personal reflections on the conference.

    The biggest takeaway for me was that the business is really moving towards being an ecosystem where most venues and organizations are looking beyond just their ticketing partner to help them in key areas. Whether it’s revenue management, pricing, queueing, data/analytics, ticket insurance, production planning etc, we’re seeing more and more specialized offerings. And only if this ecosystem works well together will the organizations get the full benefit.

    Some questions get asked more frequently than others when we showcase the full potential of the Activity Stream system and the associated AS for Live Entertainment and AS for Sports industry solutions. When demonstrating the simple function of the easy-to-use link builder we usually end up providing a crash course in UTM tagging. The analogy we feel best explains the concept of referrer information and UTM-tags is comparing it to an old fashioned physical letter.

  14. Say HI to AI

    It's a revolution

    sayHi

    Change is coming. More and more agree that the impact will equal a revolution. As you have slowly become immune to words like juggernaut, paradigm and disruption, your reaction when we say: “revolution” is not necessarily registering on the seismic scale.

    But when you honestly feel like the world needs to hear you out you look for a way to quantify and referring to a number is necessary. So how about we call it the fourth industrial revolution? Yes, that’s right, the fourth industrial revolution is upon us all. To refresh your memory, the Internet was the last one.

    On a busy Friday afternoon, a call from a high-value customer with an urgent problem is placed at the back of a slow moving call queue in your company’s call center. Following a 15 minute wait, he hangs up but calls again 10 minutes later only to be placed again at the end of the now longer queue. At this point, the customer is so frustrated that he seriously starts to question whether you deserve his business.
