2) Die Herausforderungen einer ganzheitlichen Cloud Strategie

Christopher Ryan, The B2B Revenue Growth ExpertRecorded: Jan 17 201949 mins
Your mission is not just to generate more awareness, leads and revenue, but also to increase the financial and brand equity value of your company. To do this, you need to rise above the noise in the marketplace and truly understand your company’s place in the customer’s widening array of expectations.
Step one is to uncover the current value of your offerings to your customers and prospects (the existing state). Truth here is an absolute must.
You then need to protect and enhance your marketplace value by either being a top player (perhaps “the” top player) in your value category or better yet, launching yourself into a higher-value and more profitable category. Topics include:
How to find your current place on the Value Hierarchy Scale.
What four value measurements to capture and track.
How to identify and close your value gap.
Your best options for moving up the value scale.
You will learn how to:
1.Measure where you are in relation to your competition.
2.Achieve lasting competitive differentiation
3.Increase the financial and brand-equity value of your company.
4.Become a leader in your existing value category or catapult to the next category

How does your organization collaborate with data? Aligning data management tasks across any size organization can be a challenge. This can be attributed to a lack of transparent data access, lack of big data skills, or antiquated toolsets that do not enable shared metadata for clear lineage of the data. Regardless of the reason, the results are slow, rigid decision-making processes.
While modernizing your data architecture for more agility can seem overwhelming, with an integrated platform that enhances collaboration, organizations can reap the benefits of quality data that is well understood. The data platform should provide users with the ability to fully understand all aspects of the data with a simple, unified user interface where the business and IT can define, transform and provision the data. All while providing right-sized governance for access, security and auditability.
Join Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer with Zaloni, as he tackles modernizing your data platform and explains how your organization can expand collaborative practices with the Zaloni Data Platform.
By the end of the presentation, you’ll be able to answer these questions:
- Why is a data catalog important?
- What do I need to know about data quality?
- How does self-service play a role in the data strategy?

A strong sales culture starts with YOU sales leader. Before anyone works for you, they're checking YOU out on social media. If you're invisible, or worse, if you are out of touch, you'll hire people who will be invisible and out of touch. Social media for sales leaders and sales professionals isn't new - it’s been around since the days of Usenet – we just didn’t call it social media. But it’s never been so public, so easy to use and such a powerful tool to share your personal brand and attract sales professionals that embody your culture. Learn how to better understand and embrace social media, and how can you use it to shed your cloak of invisibility and help manage your team, your career, and your professional image.
You will learn:
1.How to brand yourself boldly and show off your personal “weirdness” or what makes you different from every other sales leader.
2.How create personal connections and strong relationships with your ideal sales professional.
3.How to use a few simple apps to help you show off your weird while also positioning you as the sales manager of choice
Steve Hall, The “C” Level Sales ExpertRecorded: Jan 15 201945 mins
One of the biggest things that impacts sales productivity is insufficient access to senior decision makers – the C Suite – and one of the key things I get asked when I’m coaching my clients to help with their sales development is “how do we get access to people at “C” Level?”
There’s little benefit in having a pipeline filled with deals where you’re engaged with people too low in the food chain but that’s what a lot of standard prospecting creates – meetings with people who may influence the decision but don’t who sign off on it.
One of the best ways to impact sales acceleration is to start at the top – at executive or “C” level – and retain access while also working at lower levels in the organization.
Knowing which organizations to approach and which people in those organizations to target is aided by effective sales and marketing alignment.
This talk covers which organizations to target, which senior executives to target, what they care about, how to reach them, how to create a message that will compel them to talk to you, what to do when you get that critical first meeting and how to follow up.
You will learn:
1.Why you should sell to “C” Level
2.What “C” Level executives do and don’t care about
3.Who to approach and how to approach them
4.How to prepare for, conduct & follow up an initial meeting

Content operations, ContentOps for short, has been around for a long time, though the average content professional would be hard-pressed to define it.

Trends in technical communication can be hard to decipher, even when looking at data. But one underlying trend is that technology seems to be getting more specialized and complex. This trend toward specialization is driving up the value of technical knowledge, making it more prized than writing skills. At the same time, writers are often wearing multiple hats as they work on a variety of generalist writing tasks and a diversity of technical projects. The requirement to be both specialist and generalist makes tech comm a particularly challenging field to navigate.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Tom Johnson, for this free one-hour webinar. Tom will talk about the growing complexity in the technology landscape that is ratcheting up the importance of technical knowledge in organizations, and overshadowing writing skills. Creating documentation is becoming more of a collaborative effort with engineers due to the increasing level of complexity and specialization in the technology landscape.Specialized knowledge about writing and language doesn't seem to have as much weight in the workplace as technical knowledge. Join Scott and Tom for a lively discussion about these recent trends in tech comm.

Just for starters, not only will you need to implement effective RBAC to lower risk of unauthorized access and enforce mandatory multi-factor authentication, you'll also have to tap into the power of automation to validate security compliance baselines, detect unauthorized cloud config changes, and power self-healing infrastructure. Additionally, application-centric security is a must, with real-time visibility into application dependencies and performance metrics, plus an automatic micro-segmented security policy enforcement, and more.

While it’s critical to know the extent to which an application meets functional requirements, there is more to software testing than answering the question ‘does it work?'.
You also need to know if it scales (performance testing) and if the user experience will be acceptable (usability testing). Ultimately, you need to establish that it will deliver the required business value.
Until now, these extra steps have added layers of complexity in terms of timing, cost and expertise. As a result, they can introduce delays or get overlooked completely.
In this webinar, we will show you how to:
• Automate performance testing and usability testing
• Seamlessly integrate them with functional testing, including using your functional test models to drive performance tests.
The result: faster release cycles, less duplicated effort, and better software.
We will also show you how to test enterprise-scale software systems more easily, with submodels allowing you to break down a large, complex system model in a way that makes it far easier to manage.
