  • It’s no secret that the purpose of having people answering phones in a contact center is to help customers purchase your goods and services, and then keep them happy after the sale. However, achieving these goals is difficult for many companies because they rely on contact center technology leftover from an era when the voice phone call was king. Meanwhile, the consumer—and even the B2B customer—has moved to using multiple channels of communications: voice calls, email, online chat, SMS, and social media. In this webinar we will discuss the benefits and opportunities of an integrated and multi-channel cloud contact center for both customer and agent satisfaction.
  • Enterprise Collaboration System (ECS) facilitates efficient sharing of Information between teams and individuals in an enterprise.

  • One of today's biggest cloud trends is enterprise adoption of the Microsoft Office 365 suite. There is one wrinkle, though. Your business wants to move quickly to get immediate value, while your security team needs to proceed a little more cautiously to ensure they can govern usage and protect sensitive data. Can organizations move quickly and instrument the proper controls?

    Join Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst from 451 Research, Shamiana Soderberg, Senior Business Development Manager Cloud Productivity from Microsoft, and Jamie Barnett, CMO of Netskope for a look at safe enablement best practices for Office 365, and the role Cloud Access Security Brokers play in this effort.

    Attendees will come away with the ten real-world requirements that every organization should consider when adopting a sanctioned cloud productivity suite like Office 365. These requirements will address areas like:
    - Granular administrative and user controls across the Office 365 suite
    - DLP for content “at rest” within and “en route” to or from the suite
    - Usage and data governance within the suite and its ecosystem
  • Pharmaceutical companies play an ever increasing role in the treatment and prevention of illnesses. Many leading Pharma companies depend on third-party organizations, like the Almac Group, to help conduct testing, research and trials to improve the overall drug development process.

  • Change management is a corporate necessity, however it can be very difficult for organizations to get it right. Part of the issue comes from organizations seeing change management as just another ITSM process – like configuration or capacity management, say – when change needs a much bigger perspective. These days changes are rarely, if ever, just about IT.

    This webinar will look at the difficulties that organizations encounter when they set up and operate change management capabilities, as well as:
    * Why change management is more than just “change control” and what constitutes a “successful change”
    * How the way in which we deal with personal change can help us survive change management at work
    * What the different levels of change authority are
    * How standard changes play a key role in surviving change management
    * The evaluation, evolution, and customer perspective of change management

    Failing to understand the importance of change management can significantly hinder your organization. Join us for this webinar to ensure that your change management processes are working to benefit, not handicap, your business.

  • IT didn’t invent service management. Nor is IT the only corporate service provider that can benefit from service management or, for that matter, IT service management (ITSM). The reality is that other corporate service providers such as HR, facilities, and legal have similar operational and service management requirements to IT. For example in dealing with employee issues, requests for services and information, and changes. And, as such, these other business functions can also benefit from proven ITSM best practices and capabilities, such as ticketing, workflow and automation, knowledge management, and self-service – to improve efficiency and to deliver a better customer experience. This non-IT use of ITSM is now commonly called “enterprise service management” and, after over a decade of low-profile adoption, it has finally risen up the corporate improvement agenda to become one of the hottest ITSM and business improvement trends of 2015 and beyond.

    Attend this webinar to:

    - Understand the issues common across corporate service providers such as IT, HR, and facilities, and how enterprise service management can help.
    - Appreciate what enterprise service management entails and how ITSM technology can be reimagined and leveraged to support other business functions.
    - Receive practical tips on how to best start out, plan, deploy, and succeed with enterprise service management.
  • The IT department is not the only department dealing with requests
    and questions from their customers. HR, Facility, Fleet, Hospitality and
    many others have the same requirement as IT does yet they lack
    applications to support this. More and more these departments turn to
    IT to see if they can use the ITSM tool of the IT department. ITSM tool
    vendors have started to recognize this and are adapting their tools to
    support Service Management beyond the IT department. The promise
    of higher efficiency and lower cost certainly exists but what are the
    pitfalls to avoid and what are critical success factors? This webinar will
    give you some very practical tips to successfully integrate multiple
    departments into one service management application.

  • Communications for business is moving to the cloud for easier tools for teams to meet, collaborate, and get their job done. However, the traditional “build it and they will come” approach to deploying Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) drives less than optimal results because knowledge workers frequently grab a set of tools on their own, creating islands of knowledge and collaborative work.

    To respond to this challenge, organizations need integrated tools that help knowledge workers gain the full benefits of cloud solutions that enable teams to connect, communicate and collaborate using their favorite methods and devices, anytime, anywhere. In this webinar, we will discuss:

    •The current state of knowledge workers today
    •How UC&C is changing, especially by taking advantage of cloud deployment
    •Assessing your workforce’s needs, including remote offices, mobility, and collaboration with people outside your organization such as vendors and customers
    •Efficiencies gained by standardizing unified communications in the cloud
    •Key steps needed to evaluate and plan your transition to cloud based UC&C
  • To keep pace with the increasing demands to become a more digital business, IT organizations need to have the foundational digital service management pillars in place to; create, launch, secure, manage, analyze and restore digital services via strong strategy, governance, intelligence and automation.

    Time is money, whether launching new services, fulfilling orders, improving performance and engagement or reacting to predictive intelligence. The ability to create, enable and deliver these capabilities to the rest of IT, to your internal associates and to your clients will determine your future success and survivability.

    Join us for part one of a three part series where we will discuss how cloud impacts ITSM from both a tool and overall infrastructure perspective and how mobility first is key to your future and look out to 2016 and the forces shaping our industry.
