Let’s push past the hype and the BS and look at the facts: Artificial intelligence has evolved to the point where any sales organization that leverages AI will see measurable improvements in customer engagement, LTV, and overall sales.
AI can take on the simplest tasks, like automation of admin work such as activity logging, flagging high-priority emails, and managing contacts in your CRM. It can swiftly and accurately sift through leads, deals, and accounts to identify what’s actually worth your time, and dynamically identify which leads are ready to convert. It’ll help you ditch the sandbagging with accurate quarterly forecasting — and more.

The phrase ‘Digital Transformation’ has been increasingly used throughout the industry as a strategic goal organizations want to achieve. This initiative implies that Digital Transformation has an endpoint, a stage where companies will be ‘transformed’ - however this certainly isn’t the case.
Join Kerry Dawes, Head of Digital Experience & Intel at The Rank Group from her main stage presentation at Digital Velocity New York as she discusses:
- 3 main drivers of digital transformation
- Key ways to think of digital transformation as a longterm campaign rather than a one-time project

Security, Compliance and User Experience - Why Identity Access Management Built on Open-Standards is the Key to Open Banking
Learn how identity & access management (IAM) solutions, built on open standards, can help meet the technical requirements of PSD2 and Open Banking, including secure XS2A (access to accounts), Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), Dynamic Linking, and Consent Management, all while providing a seamless user experience and distinct competitive advantage.
If you feel like you don’t trust your data, there’s probably a good reason. It happens all the time; companies implement analytics, customize their solutions and don’t audit the implementation to ensure ongoing data accuracy. This leads to multiple inaccuracies, gaps in tracking, and — even worse — information that’s simply missing. Inaccurate data can send a brand down the wrong path, leading to bad decisions and additional costs for tools and resources that could have otherwise been avoided.
Join and learn:
- What data quality is and why it’s critical to an organization's overall success
- Why your data is a mess and how to identify the warning signs of poor data quality
- Best practices to ensure clean and quality data and how to take back control
- And so much more!
The webinar will conclude with a Fireside Chat with live questions from the audience on all things data quality.
1. Why TLS and OAuth2 are not enough to secure your APIs
API Security has a much wider spectrum and even if you are using OAuth today, you may not use it in a way that is adapted to the risk taken when exposing Open banking APIs. What about API attacks protection ? PKCE ? Message confidentiality and integrity ?
2. Why API security must be declared and not coded
Developers should not have to master security standards such as OAuth and OpenID Connect and try to implement them properly into their APIs. Instead, they should rely on proven, reliable policies approved by the bank’s security team and simply apply those policies on top of their APIs.
3. How declarative security helps with consistency and automation
42Crunch's innovative tagging mechanisms can be used by developers to express security constraints on top of their Open API definitions (aka Swagger). Those tags are translated automatically, either via the UI or in the CI/CD pipeline into policies which are applied on APIs requests/responses, making it possible to apply security as early as possible in the API lifecycle and find security vulnerabilities early.
4. How to enforce security in a scalable way using micro-firewalls
We will show how to deploy the 42Crunch API Firewall at run-time whether on premises, in the Cloud or in a hybrid environment and how to monitor the system through real-time security dashboards.
Technical communication professionals revolutionized the publishing world with the introduction of structured writing and intelligent content. By adopting innovative methods, approaches, and content standards, we were able to craft and deliver content to multiple channels quickly, often with reduced effort and cost. And, we’re not done yet.
When technical content is required for global audiences, intelligent content alone is not enough to tackle the obstacles multilingual content introduces. Combining structured intelligent technical content, terminology management, and translation memory together can solve these challenges. We call this the Holy Trifecta of Intelligent Technical Content. When all three of these are leveraged together, we can produce consistent content that is on-brand, on-message, and easy to read in every language.
In this session, attendees will learn:
* A clear description of intelligent content, terminology management, and translation memory
* An understanding of how they are interrelated and why they are important to technical communication projects
* A game plan for coordinating all three in order to create intelligent content that works, all the time, on any device, in any language
The most accessible way to leverage the explosion in artificial intelligence is chatbots. Big brands like Western Union have implemented them to streamline customer service and increase positive engagement. The Booking.com chatbot resolves half of the company's thousands of daily customer support questions in five minutes or less.
Chatbots are changing the way companies and customers interact, as consumers grow more and more comfortable with messaging -- look at the two billion-plus conversations consumers have with companies via Facebook messenger every month.
Find out how to create a powerful, engaging human-to-AI agent experience that customers expect -- as well as implement the seamless handoff to a human customer service agent when the issue turns out to be complex, with this VB Live event.

Technical communicators around the globe use the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) to help them create structured, semantically rich, topic-based technical documentation designed for reuse. The benefits of DITA, including content reuse, are limited to content teams who use XML editing tools. Content creators working with Microsoft Office tools cannot reuse DITA content easily, so content silos coalesce around the tools that content teams use.
It’s one thing to understand the value of content reuse. It’s another to find a solution that defeats tool-driven content silos so that teams who don’t have access to—or knowledge of—XML editing tools are able to effectively reuse and repurpose DITA content. Attend this free, one-hour Content Wrangler webinar, brought to you by the content management gurus at Astoria Software, to learn how technical content teams are sharing and repurposing DITA content with team members who create content using Microsoft Office software.
One of the biggest obstacles to IoT adoption is security. Our recent survey found 65% of consumers are concerned about hackers controlling IoT devices and 60% worry about their data being stolen.

The FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) performs an essential public health task by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available to improve the health of people in the United States. CDER's primary mission is to promote and protect public health by ensuring availability of safe and effective drugs of high quality throughout the entire drug life cycle. The Center oversees the research, development, manufacture and marketing of drugs.
In order for the FDA to best adapt to the ongoing rapid changes in the drug regulatory environment, driven by scientific innovation, globalization, the increasing complexity of regulated products, new legal authorities and additional user fee programs, CDER initiated a major effort five years ago to improve its ability to manage key regulatory data over the life of a drug and to better understand the global drug supply chain at a more granular level.
During this webinar, Shanthi Vigneshwaran, Computer Scientist at the Food and Drug Administration, will share how the CDER has created a 360 view of a drug’s lifecycle, from inception to product. This includes visibility of the global drug supply chain, product ingredients, suppliers, and facilities - bringing them into one trusted view – and empowering the agency to trace any potential harm, save lives, and respond to changes in supply and demand more quickly.
Join us to learn how it’s possible to:
• Gain visibility into a global supply chain across disparate locations and systems
• Address globalization and apply standards in data processes to ensure integrity
• Manage data across complex product lifecycles
The security challenges of companies large and small is changing. This is especially pronounced in the access management space as IT admins and CISOs are faced with more identities and devices across a growing number of cloud applications. In our recent survey, we found 72% of respondents found cloud access management tools as a solution to reducing the threat of large scale data breaches, while 62% highlighted the tools ability to help simplify the login process for their enterprise users.
In an organization, individuals dealing with security have different goals and objectives. Aligning them can be a challenge. We will look at the priorities of the user, IT teams and CISOs – where they are linked and where they diverge. To build effective risk-based access policies, you need to start with a living IAM strategy that takes into account geolocation, threats, unusual behavior and scenario based data. Using policy-based access management, internally and externally for example in the cloud, is helping enables aligning the different security teams in an organization and automate and simplify the log-in process for users as well. During the webinar attendees will walk away with an understanding of:
-Analyzing personas within your organizations security team to improve IAM solution implementations
-Things to consider when building your access management strategy
-Building risk-based access management policies across multiple applications or cloud environments
