2019 Predictions - Blockchain Will Not Be A Buzzword But Will Change Our Life (Part 5) | By Fabian Bartnick

Blockchain was one of the hypes in 2017 but turned sour in 2018 for most: prices crashing, most ICOs were scams, no SEC approval, and so on. You could argue an 80%+ drop from its high in December 2017 was a sign of giving up. Yet compared to January 2018 it has grown by more than 100%. is it about perspective?

“Netflix” your Revenue Culture | By Fabian Bartnick

When I was growing up, color TV was an essentially a commodity. We even started to have something called a VCR. TV's whilst in color were clunky, VCRs were just another clunky box underneath - however, it provided the first glimpse of freedom at that time as you were able to schedule programs you wanted to record (clunky, but it did the job).

RM 4.0 – What Teenage Years And Revenue Management Have in Common | By Fabian Bartnick

One of the common stereotypes of adolescence is the rebellious wild teen continually at odds with mom and dad. You are going through changes, you at times think you are better than you really are, at other times you sit down and question how good you really are. Let's say it's a confusing time as you find yourself dealing with many new experiences, rising expectations and amidst all this you must figure out that you will take it to the next level. Yes, "will take it"! Chances are, you are...

Revenue Management 4.0 - Embrace the Citizen Data Scientist (Part 4) | By Fabian Bartnick

In 2018 we saw a lot of "revenue management" Softwares coming into the market. Well, let's say a lot of software providers started to use the term Revenue Management very loosely to fit in with the current trend. Oh yeah, RM, the once locked down in the basement department has come to glory and "everyone is doing it".

The Dawn Of The Virtual Assistant. Part 3 | By Fabian Bartnick

We call them Siri (Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface), Google Assistant (no name needed (intentionally as I believe), Bixby, Viv, Clova, Alice, Alexa or Cortana (yup, that's the Microsoft one :-)) and have them designed to make our lives easier. Up until now though most of it was pretty lame — play your own stuff on Spotify, possibly ask a question as part of a party gag or have it tell you the way.

2019 Predictions — The Digital Native (Part 2) | By Fabian Bartnick

Part 1 of my predictions was all about the Birth of a new socializing and how we find reasons to create our own 2nd life and escape the reality as we know it even if it just for a few minutes. This post though will focus on something closer to our hearts: Hospitality.

What Tinder and Hospitality Distribution Have in Common? | By Fabian Bartnick

First things first: for those who don't have a clue what Tinder is: Tinder has made about 20 billion matches to date and has made dating relatively simple, or at least the first step. It doesn’t ask for 100 different questions, 50 forms, etc. It’s simplicity - Swipe. Match. Chat. Date. – for me it is one of the reasons why it became so popular. Swipe Right to Like someone, Swipe Left to pass.

2019 Predictions - A Year to Remember: Part 1 | By Fabian Bartnick

You could argue 2018 was a confusing year. We've seen new entrants into the market, a lot of buzzwords beaten to a pulp and predictions previously done for 2018 fell short. This doesn't mean nothing happened (quite the contrary), it just means that the world lost interest — or something more interesting came up.

2019 Community Predictions | By Fabian Bartnick

It is with no surprise that the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019 are dominated with the best ever and wildest predictions for the upcoming year. So much so that it feels like we are getting drawn into a state of confusion again. Of course, if you have read my post (see bottom of post) you can see my individual view on where things are going. BUT: that is only one voice amongst many.
