Webinar: Building B2B vs B2C Products by Spotify Sr PM Aisha Ishak

Ever wondered what the difference is between B2B and B2C Product Management? Enterprise Product Management has different challenges and rewards than consumer products and while you may find that consumer products are more exciting, working on an enterprise product is extremely fascinating as well. Learn the differences here.

Aisha Ishak is a Senior Product Manager leading the strategy, development, and launch of innovative and customer-centric products at Spotify.

 

My first instinct is to say that B2B uses  jargon, and B2C aims to be friendly and human because - say it with me - People buy from humans.*

 

Aisha mentions always being on the hunt for market opportunities - Something Spotify does well (Buying up Podcasting networks, anyone?)

A graphic says [paraphrasing] "Customers aren't professional buyers, but they are emotional ones."

She focuses on several areas: This is not a full recap.

Customer Problem Definition

B2C: Understanding people - customers, users - and the issues they're facing. You interview and talk to them, and use the quantitative data to make decisions on what they want and how they use the product.

B2B: More relationship-based. You know, that sounds good to me. That's what roadmaps are for. It spells out "Is it possible', 'can our tech do it', and 'how we're doing it'.

Your teams should be on board, you understand their pain points, and you get feedback.

Rollout

Needs a lot of on-boarding and management. Validation is more straightforward.

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
