eDiscovery driven by litigation involves analyzing large volumes of diverse sources of information - files, databases, paper documents, audio, video and more. To add to the complexity, Gartner research suggests that 80% of all litigation will be multilingual by 2020, which creates a significant challenge for organizations and makes it costly to process and analyze data.
Because machine translation (MT) is designed to automatically translate large volumes of data in a short amount of time, it provides an excellent solution for organizations dealing with large volumes of content.
In this webinar, experts from SDL and Nuance Communications will discuss:
• How MT optimizes eDiscovery and governance processes to reduce the time and improve the accuracy of search and analysis across multilingual content.
• How to deal with government regulations such as GDPR, which forces organizations to establish corporate compliance and informational governance policies to address multilingual content.

Growth through acquisition is a common strategy for recurring revenue businesses, providing rapid revenue gains, increased customer base, and cost-side synergies. Capturing those synergies requires thoughtful post-acquisition integration work; bringing multiple companies into a single way of operating across a larger pool of customers.
In many cases, each business has independently built a frictionless Continuous CustomerTM experience around their product offerings, fine-tuning their operations for the singular purpose of attracting, keeping, and growing that certain customer base for that particular offering. After the acquisition is made, attention quickly turns to how these independent entities can be quickly combined to operate efficiently and realize expected benefits.
This session will cover client examples of overcoming this challenge and map out the five steps to integrate recurring revenue business acquisitions to maximize value.
Exactly what the lack of alignment costs companies, how the Zeitgeist is leading executives down the wrong path and five actions you can take to reverse the downward spiral of fewer and fewer sales executives making quota.

A workforce of skilled root-cause analysis (RCA) practitioners is every manager’s dream. A possibility which is often stifled by the reality of the many hours of training required for a positive impact. Imagine if we could cut traditional training time by greater than 75% to the first responders.

An approach that offers a path for your operators to work towards RCA mastery at a much faster pace.
Join us as we discuss how to implement operator microlearning and the latest cloud-based solutions for daily management practices that allow you and your workforce to address root cause in real-time.
