    The Role of Server-Side in the Future of Your Data Foundation
    Chris Slovak, Global VP, Solutions Consulting & Jamie Wells, US West Manager, Solutions Consulting at Tealium Recorded: Aug 13 2019 61 mins
    In a hyper-competitive, cross-device, cross-experience world, consumer expectations for personalized, omnichannel experiences have put increasing pressure on brands to utilize their customer data well.

  • Analysing the Employee Experience to Create Better Engagement
    Analysing the Employee Experience to Create Better Engagement
    Jen Jackson, Guest Speaker, CEO, Jaxzyn Aug 29 2019 2:00 am UTC 43 mins
    The Employee Experience - How do we increase engagement? How can we shift/build our culture? These are the questions often asked by leaders. But what if we're asking the wrong questions? What if we no longer had to deal with big, fuzzy words like engagement or culture — vague notions that are tough to define, and even more difficult to change? The answer lies in the employee experience. Because experiences aren’t intangible. Experiences can be defined. They can be changed. They can be improved. And it’s all remarkably simple. Best of all, by focusing on creating great employee experiences: we also increase engagement and shift culture as well.

    In this keynote we'll be diving into what makes a remarkable experience and looking at the key skills leads and teams need for the future of work. Skills such as empathy, curiosity, authenticity & creativity for driving connection and collaboration.

    From Basics to Best Practices: Building Your Client-Side Data Infrastructure
    Jamie Wells, US West Manager, Solutions Consulting at Tealium Aug 29 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    For marketers who specialize in client-side data management, the shift towards a consumer privacy-first landscape means working more closely with an IT team to properly collect and activate that data. Today, tag management serves as the front-line of curating a customer experience and creating a secure, governable customer data supply chain.

    However, in order to have the most comprehensive, secure, and flexible data supply chain, your organization should be looking at employing both client-side and server-side collection and delivery based on your strategic business needs and budget.

    In this webinar, Jamie Wells returns to analyze current-day best practices for client-side data management and how the current industry trends are transforming the use cases for that data. Tune-in and you will:

    - Understand the influence of privacy regulations on the future of your tag management strategy
    - Learn how to determine what data should be collected client-side or server-side
    - Discover how to create a harmonious approach to both client-side and server-side data

    Whether you’re looking to deploy an enterprise tag management solution for the first time, or you’re a thousand tags deep, this webinar will give you a strategic view of where you should employ client-side data management in building a future-proof foundation for data collection.
