The rise of mobile offers a once-in-a-generation chance for deeper connections with consumers because mobile is inherently intimate and always-on. Being able to reach customers at any time, on any device, allows brands to boost engagement, increase retention, and grow revenue. But with so many avenues of communication, including email, push notifications, and social, businesses run the risk of spamming users rather than communicating with each individual person in a valuable way. So, how can brands intelligently leverage the bevy of marketing channels to better understand and engage customers?
Winning brands must embrace an omnichannel engagement strategy that’s built specifically for their channel-agnostic customer base. This webinar outlines the key issues in delivering a seamless omnichannel experience and provides actionable tactics that deliver proven ROI.
* Why today’s marketing automation solutions fall short of customer expectations
* How winning omnichannel marketing strategies balance push notifications, in-app messages, email, and social communications
* Why understanding users on a person level, and not device level, is critical in mobile
* Why “Marketing” is evolving to “Communicating” and how to prepare for that transition

CA Release Automation and Skytap Environments-as-a-Service Webinar
We’ve all seen the cooking show where the chef is showing the host a new recipe, and then “voilá!” out of the oven pops a fully baked dish, without the wait time. When multiple teams can develop, deploy and test in parallel using exact, instant clones of the target deployment environment, it’s like having one of those magic time-warp ovens for baking software releases. Discover how you can easily integrate instant cloud-based environment provisioning directly within automated application deployment workflows, and get out of the business of messing with infrastructure recipes. Join us for this webcast and learn how combining Skytap EaaS with CA’s leading Release Automation solution, you can:
. Easily harness the complexity and volume of applications, tools and environments inherent in continuous delivery
• Eliminate bottlenecks at every phase of the SLDC for faster release velocity, from the early provisioning of development infrastructure, through system, integration and acceptance testing and into production.
• Use the CA Release Automation Action Pack for Skytap EaaS to provision/delete, copy, schedule, suspend and resume Skytap cloud environments on demand.
• Use Skytap’s “golden template” capability to stamp out specified infrastructure completely within the context of the automated deployment workflow, without requiring additional coding or waiting for scripts to run.
Azure makes substantial infrastructure capabilities available to you with just a click of the mouse, but this isn't the virtualization stack you're used to. HOSTING VP of Product, Sean Bruton, will discuss the gotchas and nuances of the current Azure compute services to help you find success for production applications on Azure.
Today’s banking customers are a demanding bunch. They expect mobility, transparency, instant access, and competitive products from their providers. In response, financial institutions are hard at work optimizing online and mobile banking. However, all too often, the solutions and apps they create fall short of the mark.
At the same time, technology advancements are making it easier than ever for small, agile fintech startups to quickly turn ideas into marketable products across multiple channels, including wearables.
To compete in the digital age, banks must deliver smart, friendly technology, and they must do it quickly. The best way to do this is to partner with the experts. Leading banks and fintech firms need one another to thrive, if not survive.
