Most Popular Blog Entries

Most of the people landed on the home page, but 46% went directly to a particular posting. Of those, here are the top 10 postings for the year:
- Oracle's iPhone Apps I couldn't find a complete listing of Oracle's iPhone apps, so I created my own. It seemed valuable, so I decided to publish it. I guess other people agreed since it was my most popular post.
- Black Friday Trivia This is the only entry from 2008 to make the 2009 top 10. The original information came from a presentation by Dan Conway.
- Sam's Club eValues This slightly different take on coupons garnered lots of attention. But then again, anything Walmart does is scrutinized heavily.
- Mobile Coupons I think coupons associated with loyalty cards are the way to go, in which case the mobile phone isn't really even required.
- Retail Space Management Oracle's acquisition of AVT has bolstered this important part of our software portfolio. The visualizations are amazing.
- Data as a Service I think with all the buzz about cloud computing, people are interested in anything "as a service." Thinking about data that way is novel.
- Tesco's API Best Buy and Tesco have taken similar paths: build an API and let others create innovative applications. I think its a strong strategy.
- Twelpforce This posting actually got picked up by RetailWire. I think I was one of the first to play with Best Buy's Twitter service, but in the end I wasn't that impressed.
- iPhone Bump for Retail The "bump" concept that uses GPS and timing is a great workaround until our phones are equipped with NFC.
- Surf's Up with Oracle Retail POS Well, A&F is still going strong with their POS replacement project. There are several additional retailers experiencing similar success, but I'll leave that for another time.
Thanks for all the comments and retweets. See you in 2010!
