  • How to use AI in designing the customer experience How to use AI in designing the customer experience Stewart Rogers, Dir. of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: Oct 25 2016 61 mins
    Smart marketers know that the sweet spot between AI and the org’s branding is where true customer engagement spikes. It’s not enough to give the customers what they want. It’s about giving them what they didn’t realize they wanted. Like how every time you upload a photo to your Facebook account -- its DeepFace artificial intelligence program suggests that you need to tag your friend. Or how Starwood’s bot butler “Botlr” has not only freed up staff time in Aloft properties but also underlined its brand’s enthusiasm for AI and machine learning technologies.

    It’s time to take that AI one step further. We’ll talk about how to build and design the customer experience by using AI and machine learning. We'll show you how successful companies are making tremendous strides in moving the needle toward optimized customer engagement. And what's more, we're going to show you how to get started today by taking the guesswork out of your marketing strategy.

    Join us for this hour long deep dive into using AI and machine learning to design the customer experience.

    After this webinar you'll:

    * Learn how to build a customer engagement strategy from the ground up using artificial intelligence.
    * Hear valuable tips on improving your customer engagement now
    * Get insight from top execs who have been down this road and have the best advice to design the customer experience. In this VB Live curated hour long workshop.

  • Practical Approaches to Interactive Data Discovery & Predictive Analytics Practical Approaches to Interactive Data Discovery & Predictive Analytics Wayne Thompson, Chief Data Scientist SAS & Tapan Patel, Product Marketing Manager SAS Recorded: Oct 25 2016 67 mins
    Successful data science and analytics projects should focus on the explanation and delivery of business impact – this requires strong collaboration between business analysts and data scientists. Preparing rich representative data is important, but data discovery and predictive analytics are equally valuable – they enable team members to quickly evaluate which events are drivers or inhibitors of success, and to predict future outcomes. Throughout the course of a project, how can business analysts stay focused on the most important details? How can data scientists prototype and operationalize models in a quick, productive, and easy-to-use manner?

    In this webcast, we will use SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Visual Statistics to teach you how to:

    • Quickly identify predictive drivers
    • Discover outliers by using interactive tools
    • Use drag-and-drop features to build predictive models
    • Simultaneously build models and process results for each group or segment of data
    • Visually explore your predictive outputs or values

  • Gen 4 Attacks: Web Behavior Analytics to Protect Websites Gen 4 Attacks: Web Behavior Analytics to Protect Websites Eric Ogren, Senior Analyst at 451 Research, & Omri Iluz, CEO of PerimeterX Recorded: Oct 20 2016 58 mins
    Join Eric Ogren, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Omri Iluz, CEO of PerimeterX, as they discuss how your best defense against automated website attacks rests with an approach founded on analyzing the behavior of humans and bots. 451 Research has talked with organizations that have saved millions in fraudulent transactions after embracing a behavioral analysis approach to security.

    Sophisticated attackers are commercially motivated, using automated attacks to inflict damage. By abusing encoded business logic, they utilize real browsers to take over accounts, perform fraudulent purchases and scrape intellectual property, without triggering traditional security mechanisms.

  • Combining RMS, CAD and Sensor Data for Proactive Policing Combining RMS, CAD and Sensor Data for Proactive Policing Jeff King, JPS Solutions Architect, Microsoft Recorded: Oct 19 2016 25 mins
    Law enforcement agencies are looking for new ways to proactively fight crime and keep their communities safe. However, how do they begin to address some of the challenges brought forth by the 21st century criminal? Criminals are becoming smarter, leveraging technologies like mobile phones, encrypted communication networks, social media, and the internet to help them become more efficient in how they commit crimes.

    In response, law enforcement agencies are building their own technology arsenals: investing in sensor-based technologies designed to act as ‘force multipliers,’ such as cameras, gunshot detectors, license plate readers, vehicle locators, and social media monitoring tools, all designed to provide real-time data for agencies.

    While these sensors provide key intelligence for a real-time crime center, challenges still exist in how agencies use this data.

    In this session, you’ll see a demonstration of how some agencies are building using data in a new way. By aggregating data streams like CAD/RMS with their LPR and AVL systems into a single view, they become smarter in managing their teams, investigating crime, and responding to 911 calls.

    Join this webcast to learn how to:

    Leverage and combine data CAD, RMS, LPR, and other real-time data capture systems to proactively police
    Use new data driven tools to facilitate and speed-up post crime investigation
    Deploy officers and design patrol boundaries more effectively

  • Agile for Speed, productivity and … happiness  Agile for Speed, productivity and … happiness  Longda Yin, Principal Agile Consultant Oct 27 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Agile employees outperform so-called “hard workers” by nearly 20 percent, and research from Korn Ferry found that companies with more agile executives had 25 percent higher profit margins than their peers. Given the pervasiveness of agile in software development circles, and the pervasiveness of software as the backbone for every business today, it’s no surprise that agile tenets have pervaded employee expectations about the workplace. It’s why some of our agile coaches encourage customers to use employee happiness as a productivity metric.  
    Agile cultures are engaging cultures, and engaging cultures produce engaged employees. Are you ready to get going? We can help. Join us on Thursday, October 27, 10am PST / 1pm ET for this engaging webinar.

    You will learn how to:
    - Customize your test processes using the latest performance tools
    - Get ahead of issues with real-user and synthetic monitoring
    - Prevent negative user experiences that impact the bottom line
    - Solve performance issues proactively, before they become problems for your users
