one-to-one-marketing (1:1 marketing)

One-to-one marketing (sometimes expressed as 1:1 marketing) is a customer relationship management (CRM) strategy emphasizing personalized interactions with customers. The personalization of interactions is thought to foster greater customer loyalty and better return on marketing investment. The concept of one-to-one marketing as a CRM approach was advanced by Don Peppers and Martha Rogers in their 1994 book, The One to One Future.

Only the term is new; the approach is almost as old as commerce itself. In the past, for example, proprietors of a general store would naturally take a one-to-one approach, remembering details about each customer's preferences and characteristics and using that knowledge to provide better service. One-to-one marketing seeks to reinvest marketing with the personal touch absent from many modern business interactions.

1:1 marketing is sometimes referred to as "a segment of one." (Customer segmentation, focuses on customizing marketing components for groups of customers rather than individuals.)

Hyper-converged market offers all-in-one infrastructure Hyper-converged storage systems have made their mark as a cost-effective, simple-to-deploy storage option for use cases such as virtual desktop infrastructure and remote offices. However, hyper-convergence hasn't yet taken larger enterprises by storm. This could be due to some drawbacks of the technology -- capacity and performance are often required to be scaled together, and many enterprises are concerned about vendor lock-in. However, vendors in today's hyper-converged market are addressing these problems with new systems to push the technology farther mainstream. For example, many vendors offer several configurations of their products, while hyper-converged software and all-flash versions are also emerging on the market.

This handbook will provide an overview of the hyper-converged market as it stands today to help you decide whether the technology might be beneficial to your environment.
