  • Real-time business analytics for data-hungry CMOs Real-time business analytics for data-hungry CMOs Stewart Rogers, Dir. of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Live 60 mins
    Kenny Rogers said never count your money when you’re sitting at the table—but that just means you’re working blind. Data-driven digital marketers need to be constantly tallying up, because you can’t just stay on top of real-time data, you have to start thinking two steps ahead. Simple push tactics of the past have to give way to a dynamic, real-time movement of information, interaction and engagement between your company and your customers.

    But if you don’t know how to leverage real-time business analytics to separate essential behaviors from metrics that are mere noise, that incomplete big picture could lead to bad decisions, missed opportunities, and money left on the table.

    Join our latest VB Live event for insight into how to pan for gold, and turn information into insight.

    In this webinar you’ll:
    * Learn how to define the "truth" with metrics, and which version of the truth is meaningful to the business

  • Eliminating security blind spots for Endpoints or on the move Eliminating security blind spots for Endpoints or on the move Kim Ellery, Director Product Marketing Dec 13 2016 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Just a few years ago it was all about keeping things out with traditional security focused on the perimeter. Today it’s a given that many risks have already made it past the front door – with the acceleration to the cloud combined with the exponential growth of mobility, sensitive data can be accessed from anywhere. This new reality has brought productivity gains but also a new landscape of risks. As a result, many organizations have upped their game, employing a strong playbook traversing from the endpoint to the cloud. This layered approach ensures organizations can tackle and respond to each play as it happens. Join Kim Ellery from Absolute for an insightful presentation on the strategic benefits of this new landscape, and why many organizations still miss critical security blind spots.
  • Commercialising IP: Bridging the gap between academia and industry Commercialising IP: Bridging the gap between academia and industry Bruno Reynolds, Senior Consultant at Isis Enterprise, Ben Oakley, Consultant at Isis Enterprise Dec 13 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Resource constraints, financial and human, mean that most universities simply do not have the luxury of being able to back every research commercialisation opportunity. Therefore, it is essential to develop a strategy and process that optimises the chances of backing winners, be it to maximise the financial return or to address the non-financial impact agenda.


    PatSnap will be teaming up Isis Enterprise, the innovation consultancy division of Oxford University Innovation, to discuss some key measures that can be taken to identify promising commercialisation projects that are underpinned by strong intellectual property. We will also be providing insight on methods for trimming and shaping academic patent portfolios so that they are optimised for strong overall returns.
