“It all started with a tweet.” Jeff Cotrupe tweeted a quick take with some impressions from AWS Summit Chicago. Next thing you know, tweet love started breaking out all over and soon, an invite came to do a guest post. The result appears here on the Dynatrace Blog.
Frost & Sullivan’s Brand & Demand team, led by Elisha Gist, poured content from Jeff Cotrupe and others into a piece titled Can Bots and Virtual Assistants Help Boost Your Brand? Some key takeaways include:
- Millennials, who now comprise the largest group of consumers in the marketplace, are ready, eager, and able to leverage self-service and other advanced technologies–and brands who do not offer them will be at a competitive disadvantage.
- Organizations should move beyond simple automation to utilizing bots as tools to differentiate their brands, such as by incorporating their brand’s specific message
into a bot and tailoring chat to underscore brand identity.
- Testing and partnerships will shape how bots and VAs are implemented across organizations.
The piece is available for free download here at the Brand & Demand landing page, which features a quote from Cotrupe.

Frost & Sullivan’s Digital Transformation Blog has published Jeff Cotrupe’s blog post titled Is Investing in Digital Advertising a Miscalculation? Ask Facebook.

Stratecast has published Jeff Cotrupe’s latest report, Wearing Your Heart (Rate) on Your Sleeve: How Fitness Trackers and Big Data Solutions are Giving the World a Running Start toward Connected Health. The report’s key findings include:
- Broken health processes built on broken data processes waste hundreds of billions of dollars. The good news is that consumers are laying the groundwork for the coming revolution in healthcare simply by using fitness trackers.
- Apple and IBM have built an ecosystem designed to give everyone (patients, providers, researchers, and payers) what they are looking for in a connected health future–and are beginning to deliver it today.
- Serious challenges, however, could kill population-wide connected health; and some are already having unhealthy effects on healthcare. These challenges include the rapid data growth associated with the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT); the difficulty of ensuring data security, integrity, and privacy; and claims fraud.
- Despite these challenges, industry, academia, and government continue pressing forward because the pressing health and economic issues they face cannot wait. Solutions providers such as AWS, Apple, IBM Watson Health, Mimo, Misfit, Next IT, Platfora, Virdata, and others mentioned in this report are beginning to move the planet toward connected health by delivering results for patients, providers, payers, researchers, and governments.
- Leveraging big data to revolutionize healthcare could generate $300 billion to $450 billion in annual cost savings.
