Whenever I see a commercial promoting Las Vegas, I am again reminded that money won by gambling in the casinos usually stays there. I doubt if that fact can support a book but another fact can...and has: The gambling casinos there and elsewhere use advanced technologies and advanced analytics to obtain, process, evaluate, and then act upon consumer data. This process creates for them a competitive advantage. The subtitle of Adam Tanner's book reveals his primary focus: "The World of Personal Data -- Lifeblood of Big Business -- and the End of Privacy as We Know It." Indeed, in the new, rapidly expanding global marketplace, data are the new currency and some of the most valuable data are provided by consumers, whether or not they realize it.All of the major research studies with which I am familiar indicate that, when identifying what is most important to them, employees and customers rank "feeling appreciated" among the top three and frequently #1. The more a company knows about a customer, the better prepared it is to do -- and not do -- whatever it must to gain and then sustain that customer's trust and respect. This reality drives the process by which to create what Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba characterize as "customer evangelists."Companies such as , Facebook, and Google have refined a process introduced by César Ritz in 1898 when HÃ´tel Ritz in the Place VendÃ´me opened its doors. He was a passionate advocate of perfection in hospitality, insisting that it always be invisible. With regard to what became the institutional motto, "Ladies and Gentlemen Serving Ladies and Gentlemen." Rules? He stated them clearly: "See all without looking; hear all without listening; be attentive without being servile; anticipate without being presumptuous.
