  • Big Content Era: IDC Content Marketing and Sales Enablement Briefing
    Big Content Era: IDC Content Marketing and Sales Enablement Briefing Joshua Budd, AVP Consulting, IDC CEMA Recorded: Jun 14 2018 52 mins
    A large share of B2B buyers decide on whether or not to purchase your product before they meet a sales representative.
    At the same time, communication with customers is increasingly moving to online channels, and the main challenge of the day is not only generating great marketing content but generating high-quality content in general. IDC's recent survey shows that today's marketing teams need to produce ten times more content more than ever before. This is not the result of quantitative priority strategies but rather arises from the need to meet the rising demand for personalized interaction in the growing number of digital communication channels and throughout the lifecycle of the business relationship.

    Join our webinar with Joshua Budd, IDC's associate vice president for consulting in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (CEMA), while he presents how provocative, fact-based content can make a difference and how to lay the groundwork before the customer is approached by your sales team.

    We will try to answer the following questions:
    • What makes content marketing so effective?
    • Is content really "king" or is this just a buzz term?
    • Can fact-based messaging reliably help convince not only your customers but also your sales team?
    • How can I create a content plan that is useful for various customers’ touchpoints?

    We look forward to welcoming you into the discussion!
  • How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data
    How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data Pari Datta, Senior innovation and research consultant at Cambridge Design Partnership Recorded: Jun 13 2018 39 mins
    Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer.

    Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real.

    R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies.

    This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.

    Please note: Registrants details will be shared with the presenter after the webinar.

  • Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (North America)
    Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (North America) Rick van der Lans, Independent Business Intelligence Analyst and Lakshmi Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Denodo Jun 27 2018 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
    So, what’s the solution?

    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

    Attend this session to learn:

    • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
    • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
    • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.

    Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.

  • Platform Requirements for CI/CD Success—and the Enterprises Leading the Way
    Platform Requirements for CI/CD Success—and the Enterprises Leading the Way James Ma, Pivotal and Jay Lyman, 451 Research Jun 28 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    All enterprises want to increase the speed of software delivery to get new products to market faster. The means for achieving this is often through the practice of continuous integration/continuous delivery. But speed alone isn’t enough—teams also require the ability to pivot when conditions change. They must ensure their software is stable and reliable, and be able to roll out patches and other security measures quickly and at scale.

    A cloud-native platform coupled with test-driven development and CI/CD practices can help make this a reality. In this webinar, 451 Research’s Jay Lyman presents the results of his research into cloud-native platform requirements for enterprise CI/CD and DevOps success. Pivotal’s James Ma joins Lyman to discuss best practices from DevOps teams charged with running and managing cloud-native platforms, including applying CI/CD to the platform itself.

  • Why Is Your Sales Manager Is Your Biggest Liability?
    Why Is Your Sales Manager Is Your Biggest Liability? Marcus Cauchi, ISM Fellow Jul 10 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    We all think we know the cost of a wrong hire in sales. Many of us have paid the heavy price, but we often do we overlook the person whose job it is to hire the best and get the best out of them, the Sales Manager. If you think hiring the wrong salesperson is expensive, you can multiply that cost by 5-10x when you hire the wrong sales manager.

    * Does your manager try to manage the numbers?
    * Is your manager focused on being a supervisor?
    * Do they treat recruitment as a chore and an interruption to their real job?
    * Are they taking too long or failing to manage turnover?
    * Are they managing from an ivory tower?
    * Do they confused training with coaching and why does this matter?
    * Do they rescue & accidentally create a culture of upward delegation & learned helplessness?
    * Do they believe the excuses they hear?
    * Are they more concerned with being liked than being effective?
    * Are they inconsistent or lack clarity?
    * Do they do what was done to them?
    * Are they blaming their salespeople instead of taking responsibility for fixing the problems you need them to fix?
    * Are they focused on the helping the wrong people?
    * Are they worried about playing favourites?

    If you answered “yes’ to any of these questions YOU have a problem.

    A webinar for owners, CEOs and sales managers who are brave enough to look into the abyss. Not for softies!
  • You're compromised: How do you respond?
    You're compromised: How do you respond? Jeroen Herlaar, Regional Director, Mandiant Jul 10 2018 1:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Second part of our 'Breach Response Preparedness Series’, a 3-part series on state-of-the-art incident investigation techniques and breach response strategies.

    Statistics (from M-Trends 2018) show that the median dwell time (time between initial intrusion, and detection) for EMEA organisations in 2017 was 175 days. A 175 days roaming free inside the victim’s infrastructure; a large portion of which likely would have been with administrator privileges, thereby having the keys to the kingdom. To be able to respond to such breaches effectively and efficiently, Mandiant applies a structured approach, relying on its scalable technology platform, and threat intelligence collected over the last 14 years.

    Join your host Jeroen Herlaar, Mandiant Regional Director, for a 25-minute webinar to discuss the Mandiant incident response approach, and why it matters to your organisation if you are confronted with a serious compromise.

  • Onboarding: How to Turn an A-Player into a B-player in Under 4 Weeks
    Onboarding: How to Turn an A-Player into a B-player in Under 4 Weeks Marcus Cauchi, ISM Fellow Jul 17 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    You’ve just hired James Bond on to your sales team and you have high hopes for his performance. Assuming you really did hire James Bond and not Mr Bean in a Tux, what can you do to ensure disappointment?

    Why! Fail to do a proper onboarding process! Delude yourself into thinking you hired an adult, a professional, someone who can be depended on to hit the ground running. “John is a big boy and doesn’t want me crowding him. I’ll let him get on with it.”

    This is called management by abdication and is one of the cardinal sins of sales management.

    Onboarding is the lost element of successful recruitment. The best sales managers have a 120 day onboarding plan for new hires. Why 120 days? Because that is the probation period a new hire is typically putting you (their manager, the job they actually bought, the company and the other people on the team) on in case they believe they have made a bad choice of career move.

    You’ve invested time and money in attracting them, selecting them, offering them, legal & HR costs, managing their notice period, paying them, training them and you risk blowing your winnings because you’re too busy, too stupid or too lazy to finish the job you started!

    Onboarding is not about giving them an Ops & Employee Manual to read, giving them some product training and provisioning them with passwords, a laptop and a phone. Those are the tiniest part of a good onboarding process. Onboarding should set up a new hire for success. It should be structured and confirm that you have made the right hire. It should tell you quickly if you haven’t so you can hire slow and fire fast.

    A reliable onboarding process needs to cover 3 things:

    * What do they need to know?
    * By when do they need to know it?
    * Where can they find it?
