    Competing on customer experience in retail is not just a passing fad – it’s here to stay. Customers expect more, want convenience, and they change quickly. Retailers have responded by introducing new channels, services, and personalized marketing promotions to capture customers’ attention and wallet share. What does it take to really take to engage with customers?  The answer is hidden in your data. According to Forbes, 80% of data is dark and untouched - meaning it’s never actually used to make improvements or changes deemed necessary by the customer.
    In this discussion you’ll learn what is possible as we review how you can create a trusted 360-degree view of your customer and put the customer truly at the center of your operations.  We’ll review how retailers of all types are delivering a customer experience that sets them apart from other brands to drive consumer loyalty.  And we’ll share the best practices and use cases retailers have adopted to get to know their customers better by unleashing the disruptive power of their data.

  • Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service
    Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service Abinash Tripathy Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift Recorded: Sep 20 2018 61 mins
    Reportedly, 44% of Americans would rather scrub a toilet than call customer support. And heeding that cry for help back in 2016 or so, companies across the land stepped up to the plate, taking customer service from the phone to texting and messaging with AI-powered, NLP-reliant smart chatbots that could tell jokes, offer small talk, place taco orders, and more.

    Where those messenger bots fell down, though, was in actually understanding customer intent and delivering on-point customer service. So companies were left with frustrated customers who’d still rather get a root canal than talk on the phone, but left with a broken messenger-based solution that only made the experience worse.

    The answer: Make bots "dumber," to make customer service smarter. Simpler rules-based chatbots are easy to implement, easy to use, 99-percent effective web and mobile-based messenger apps that don't try to hold conversations — they just solve customer service issues, fast.

    To learn more about why companies like Amazon are dumping the NLP bots and going all-in on a new generation of rules-based chatbots, don’t miss this VB Live event!

    You’ll learn:
    * The difference between NLP and rules-based bots and why it matters
    * Why companies like Amazon are turning away from natural language processing-driven bots to rules-based bots
    * How to deliver mobile and web-based customer service that works, using the right bots.
    * How rules-based bots make the customer journey more effective

    Speakers:
    * Abinash Tripathy, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift
    * Mitch Lee, Manager, Credit Karma and Co-Founder, Penny

    Successful onboarding is NOT just a matter of completing paperwork, selecting benefits, and getting a tour of the office. Getting your workforce up and running quickly and effectively will accelerate productivity. With digital workspaces, IT and HR can partner to ensure every new employee hits the ground running on Day 1.

    Join ASG Technologies on Wednesday, September 26th, to hear from digital workspace expert, Taj Aljundi, and Global Head of HR, Licia Williams, on how you can quickly onboard new staff, whether employees, contractors, or consultants, with the tools and information that they need, right from the start. All while reducing your onboarding costs substantially. You’ll learn how digital workspaces:
    • Support any device, anywhere – so you can engage the best talent regardless of location.
    • Embed IT policies regarding security, governance, and regulatory compliance.

    Data is doubling every two years, driven by human and machine-generated data, such as the Internet of Things (IoT). The analysis of patData is doubling every two years, driven by human and machine-generated data, such as the Internet of Things (IoT). The analysis of patterns and structure in this data and its transformation into actionable insights is driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) workloads.

    IDC predicts that in the next three years over half the businesses will use AI, ML, and DL workloads. This has given rise to the NVIDIA DGX-1 GPU-based supercomputer to accelerate these workloads. Vexata supports the DGX-1 and delivers ultra-low latency, massive ingest bandwidth, and heavy mixed random and sequential read/write I/O operations. Using direct attached storage (DAS) or all-flash arrays (AFAs) limits the usefulness of the DGX-1 by restraining performance and requiring complex data provisioning, mobility, and growth. Vexata addresses these issues with VelocityAI, which combines the NVIDIA DGX-1 and the Vexata VX-100FS Scalable NVMe File Array.

    Learn about VelocityAI and how we built it to overcome these machine learning challenges. This webinar is targeted to those that want to leverage GPU for data analytics. Our expert will cover:

    - Dealing with large training and inferencing data-sets by leveraging NVMe media
    - Using the VelocityAI to eliminate movement between data pipeline stages
    - Dealing with data security, protection, and efficiency concerns

    Learn how you can leverage VelocityAI to deliver transformative performance with breakthrough economics at scale for your AI, ML, and DL applications.

  • Improving Customer Experience with Machine Learning and Sensor Data at Scale
    Improving Customer Experience with Machine Learning and Sensor Data at Scale Larry Lancaster, Zebrium Sep 27 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We live in an increasingly connected world – from cloud software and data center hardware to medical devices, industrial machines, and consumer wearables. Whatever can be connected, will be connected. Why? Because vendors (manufacturers) seek to tap the telemetry data from these connected products to improve their customer experience.

    Building a big data platform from scratch to capture this opportunity is difficult, since most of the data is unstructured and requires specialized domain knowledge and engineering skills to leverage. Join four-time Vertica customer, Larry Lancaster, on our latest Data Disruptors webcast as he explains how:

    • His latest venture, Zebrium, uses Machine Learning to structure product telemetry into a relational system of record to ingest data in-line, at wire speed

  • Overcoming the Storage Roadblock to Data Center Modernization
    Overcoming the Storage Roadblock to Data Center Modernization Storage Switzerland and Datera Sep 27 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Organizations have tried a variety of solutions to regain control of their data storage infrastructure. They’ve invested in monolithic storage systems, software defined storage (SDS) and hyper-converged systems. While each approach may have brought some value, each failed in its primary task: consolidating storage resources. Each of these consolidation efforts is unable to consistently guarantee performance, scale capacity and drive down storage costs.

    As a result, most organizations end up buying workload specific solutions for both legacy and modern applications. Most data centers today have a mixture of multiple all-flash storage systems, hyper-converged environments and high capacity data archives. They also have storage software for each use case. IT ends up dealing with a data management nightmare, which limits organizational efficiency and productivity.

    Don’t give up! Join Storage Switzerland and Datera to learn how monolithic, software defined and hyper-converged architectures have let IT down and why the problem gets worse as data centers modernize. Attendees will learn how storage solutions need to change in order to eliminate primary storage silos while guaranteeing specific application performance, scaling to meet capacity demands and lower storage TCO.
