Success should be evaluated on how well you are managing and maximizing your current solution.

CIO of Kids II®, Grant Gunnigle, was recently interviewed by CIO Outlook 2013 presented by CIO Review. He provided insight into the company’s implementation of technology to solve business challenges. Kids II is one of the world's fastest growing baby product companies.

The priorities for Kids II include the consolidation and analysis of Big Data and consumer engagement. Also of great importance is the IT infrastructure that connects the 13 global offices of Kids II and the more than 450 employees worldwide.

Key to the company’s technology strategy is not getting caught up in what is “sexy and hot at the moment,” said Gunnigle. “Success should be evaluated on how well you are managing and maximizing your current solution.”

He explained that the constant implementation of new technology is typically unsustainable.

Kids II designs, markets and distributes more than 400 unique infant and toddler products which are sold to more than 76,800 retail outlets worldwide in over 70 countries.

The company brand portfolio includes its signature Bright Starts™, InGenuity™, Comfort & Harmony™, as well as licenses to design and manufacture products for Disney Baby™, Baby Einstein™, Oball™ and Taggies™.
