    Dean Nicolls, VP of Marketing, Jumio Corp. Recorded: Mar 20 2019 26 mins
    Customer acquisition is top of mind for most financial service organizations and their boards. Normally, when banks and other financial service institutions think customer acquisition, they think about launching a new advertising campaign with the hope of driving more online or in-branch traffic -- but these campaigns are iffy at best.

    - Dissect the abandonment problem
    - Reduce the number of identity verification screens & clicks

    Join us as we continue this series of webinars specifically designed for the community by the community with the goal to share knowledge, spark innovation, and further build and link the relationships within our HPCC Systems community.

    Featured speakers include:

    Vincent Freeh, Professor NC State University, HPCC Systems as a Service (Haas)
    There are numerous reasons to use an IaaS for HPCC Systems instead of dedicated hardware, especially if the workload does not execute 24/7. We developed a CloudFormation Template and an AMI for HPCC Systems and a reference architecture for HPCC Systems in AWS. Significant effort was expended to determine the best set of resources for HPCC Systems clusters. Furthermore, we created a program to create and manage HPCC Systems clusters in AWS from the command line. This talk will present the tools we created and also explain the reference architecture and many of the configuration options.

    David de Hilster, Consulting Software Engineer, LexisNexis Risk Solutions, New ECL IDE Features in 7.0
    The ECL IDE is an integrated development environment for ECL programmers to create, edit, and execute ECL code within the HPCC Systems platform. The latest 7.0 version includes new features and enhancements such as a more comprehensive autocomplete, tooltips and F12 capabilities. In this talk, David will discuss how users can leverage these features and more.

    Bob Foreman, Senior Software Engineer, HPCC Systems, LexisNexis Risk Solutions - ECL Tip: A Tiny Trove of TABLE Tidbits
    This month’s ECL Tip of the Month will focus on the ECL TABLE Function. Common (and some not so common) use cases will be discussed. Code example demonstrated will also be available for download.

  • Complexity, Cost and Clutter, Oh My! Use Backup Appliances and Simplify
    Complexity, Cost and Clutter, Oh My! Use Backup Appliances and Simplify
    John Fluharty and Phil Wandrei - Commvault Mar 21 2019 3:00 pm UTC 32 mins
    Appliances are part of our everyday life, especially in the home. They provide convenience and save us time and money. However, with their known and proven benefits, appliances are not widely used for data protection and management. Too often, organizations take a "Do-It-Yourself" approach with their backup and recovery solution, and waste time and money.

    Attend this webinar to view a short demonstration on how easy it is to set up a Commvault appliance and learn why switching delivers:

    Simple operation with a single solution and web-based user interface to manage and protect all of your data 
    Predictable, scalable performance and costs, so you always know what to expect  
    Streamlined support through a single vendor 
    If your backup and recovery solution has become too costly, complex, or just plain cumbersome, it is time switch and simplify your environment.

  • Essential SaaS benchmarks for a competitive advantage
    Essential SaaS benchmarks for a competitive advantage
    Recurly Mar 21 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The competition is coming. By 2020, eighty percent of SaaS players will move to a subscription-based model, which means your success strategies have to evolve — and that includes the all-important fundamental: how your subscriptions are structured.

    Your subscription pricing and plan structure have a profound impact on subscriber acquisition and retention, and once you nail the formula, you'll see revenue increase. Do you choose an annual or monthly plan? Offer a trial or discounts?

    This is where a test plan is critical. Combined with benchmark data, you can test and iterate your way to the right pricing and plan structure. And when important decisions are backed by comprehensive benchmark data, you’re far more likely to see an increase in adoption and revenue.

    Join this VB Live event to discover essential SaaS benchmarks and best practices to maximize revenue, improve acquisition, and spur adoption.

    Registration is free!

    Attendees will learn:

    * Important SaaS benchmarks by industry segment
    * How to structure your SaaS subscription plans and pricing to maximize revenue and retention
    * How successful SaaS companies use a test, learn, and iterate framework to optimize revenue
    * The key metrics — and reports — to monitor for success and maximum LTV
    * The results of an in-depth case study on SaaS testing and pricing

    Speakers:
    *Panelist: Emma Clark, Chief of Staff, Recurly
