    Modern marketing has become customer-centric. Rather than one-way, generic message broadcasting, marketing today is about delivering a relevant, personalized experience… but how do you deliver relevance if you don’t know who you’re talking to?

    Knowing who each customer is and what she cares about is a major challenge with two parts:

    * Data collection - picking up the digital breadcrumbs from each customer interaction
    * Data unification - tying together customer details from multiple interactions and databases

    This webinar will explain:
    * Why customer identity is more critical than ever
    * The challenges of collecting and unifying customer data
    * Key tools for capturing customer data
    * Best options for enriching existing customer profiles
    * Methods and technologies to unify customer data

    And includes data from:
    * A survey of 506 marketers about customer identity and personalization
    * 27 vendor and brand interviews

  • The rise of mobile offers a once-in-a-generation chance for deeper connections with consumers because mobile is inherently intimate and always-on. Being able to reach customers at any time, on any device, allows brands to boost engagement, increase retention, and grow revenue. But with so many avenues of communication, including email, push notifications, and social, businesses run the risk of spamming users rather than communicating with each individual person in a valuable way. So, how can brands intelligently leverage the bevy of marketing channels to better understand and engage customers?

    Winning brands must embrace an omnichannel engagement strategy that’s built specifically for their channel-agnostic customer base. This webinar outlines the key issues in delivering a seamless omnichannel experience and provides actionable tactics that deliver proven ROI.

    You’ll learn:

    * Why today’s marketing automation solutions fall short of customer expectations
    * How winning omnichannel marketing strategies balance push notifications, in-app messages, email, and social communications
    * Why understanding users on a person level, and not device level, is critical in mobile
    * Why “Marketing” is evolving to “Communicating” and how to prepare for that transition

  • Availability is one of the core principles in the security CIA triad and one which business leaders tend to grasp more so than other technical risks associated with security. Customers want and expect access to their finances anytime and from anywhere. How is the financial industry grappling with distributed denial of service (DDoS)? What is the financial impact to an institution under DDoS attack? Are financial services firms witnessing an increase in DDoS attacks and duration? If so, what countermeasures are in place to ensure availability does not suffer?

    Lastly, what is the financial services industry relying on as sources of intelligence?

    Join us to hear answers to these questions and more as IANS Research and Arbor Networks present poll results from financial services’ security executive management surveyed.
  • The value of cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365 is not just in the ability to simplify usage and management, but in integrating with other often-used cloud business applications, such as communication tools. The ability to manage and track all business communications in one place—calls, texts, faxes and voicemails—and to make and receive calls directly within Office 365, are both productivity advantages that integration can deliver. In this presentation we will discuss the benefits of an integrated Office 365 and business communication system for both IT and the end user.
  • Today’s banking customers are a demanding bunch. They expect mobility, transparency, instant access, and competitive products from their providers. In response, financial institutions are hard at work optimizing online and mobile banking. However, all too often, the solutions and apps they create fall short of the mark.

    At the same time, technology advancements are making it easier than ever for small, agile fintech startups to quickly turn ideas into marketable products across multiple channels, including wearables.

    To compete in the digital age, banks must deliver smart, friendly technology, and they must do it quickly. The best way to do this is to partner with the experts. Leading banks and fintech firms need one another to thrive, if not survive.

  • Business Intelligence vs. Data Analytics or Data Analytics vs Business Intelligence?

    Most companies are wrestling internally to get clear and valuable data/insights to predict the change that could affect their business. Traditional BI could be improved on with the help of Data Analytics, while at the same time Data Analytics needs to be fed by BI. More and more BI and real-time analytics are converging and supporting each other to deliver valuable insights and critical reports.
    Let’s look together at some tips and real life examples.
  • With 82% of all data now having location content, brands cannot afford to ignore the importance of location when gaining insight on the customers, they need to understand where they are, and where they are going to be. With this additional insight, clients not only understand the attributes of existing data, but also gain insight into what influences customers.

    In essence: data with location gives context. Combine context with influence, and there is Insight
  • From ecommerce platform selection to warehouse, order and product management systems, join ecommerce architect specialist Mike Bainbridge as he gives an overview of key software solutions for retailers.
  • This webcast will give an overview of deploying Hadoop within the organization as a strategic initiative for business advantage. Rather than viewing distributed databases as an incremental solution to an IT problem, Ioana Hreninciuc look at the bigger picture: what can Hadoop do not for the database administrators but for the organization as a whole?

    Business users have problems and budgets to fix them, but Hadoop is a technical product sold by technical people. The market for big data intake and analytics is growing but the people who could support this growth more than anyone are the business users, not IT managers. IT is shrinking or in some cases completely outsourced so it becomes very difficult to take bold steps in IT.

    It is essential to consider the strategic questions in prioritizing Hadoop and other technologies. This webcast will give a framework and starting point in these issues:

    · IT or business user – who benefits more from deploying Hadoop?

    · Who could or should bring Hadoop into the organization?

    · Is Hadoop really necessary? What are the organization’s alternatives?

    · How can you leverage an existing Hadoop deployment from your organization?

    · What should a business user know about Hadoop?

    · How long does it take to get started with Hadoop?

    · Is Hadoop as a Service a reasonable alternative for your organization?

    · What are the PROs and CONs of Hadoop as a Service?
  • Join Security Researcher, Cameron Camp, as he reviews the latest in cyber security covered at this year's Black Hat Conference.

He will look at the different types of application and how they need to be managed and hosted. Where do we build, where do we buy and where is configuration the right answer? How do we choose between in-house infrastructure, managed cloud services and engineered systems?

    Join Stephen for a structured approach to providing a cohesive strategy for IT investment that makes sense, and optimises business outcomes whilst being simple enough to gain business stakeholder buy in and approval.
  • In the digital transformation of companies, many questions have arisen: how can Business Intelligence meet new business needs? How can Business Intelligence deliver insights in real-time? How can it analyse and scale increasingly growing data? How do you deploy business applications without training or user manuals?

    In this webinar, you will learn through case studies how Big Data is transforming business intelligence via a technological transformation and with agile methods and a business-oriented approach.
  • IT spend has become one of the largest budget line items in companies today. IT organizations worldwide spent over $4 trillion dollars in 2013 alone. Despite the growth in IT spend, many IT organizations do not have the capability to clearly and easily articulate where that spend is going, how it correlates to the services they are delivering or what value the business is realizing from the services.

    In order to stay competitive, businesses are seeking ways to optimize and align future IT investment decisions with the strategic direction of the company. By making all of the costs of running IT transparent, IT can change the way business units consume IT resources, drive down total enterprise IT costs and focus on IT spending that delivers real business value.
  • Join us on Friday, August 28 for a live online demo. Learn how RingCentral supports your mobile workforce with powerful communications that work on the desktop, desk phone, smartphone, and tablet, making everyone productive and professional no matter where they are.

  • The consumerization of IT, bring your own device (BYOD), and software-as-a-service (SaaS) provide organizations with impressive productivity gains, but bring with them the challenge of secure management. Grady Boggs, Principal Security Specialist, illustrates the Microsoft comprehensive cloud solution, the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), and details how users can stay productive while keeping corporate information safe and secure.
  • Traditionally, most organizations have used email for sending files to colleagues or clients. However, as files increase in size and email attachment limits are an issue, employees are forced to either use old-fashioned FTP or circumvent company regulations by turning to insecure consumer-grade applications. 72% of the people we surveyed do! Let us tell you about a better way.

    Join us to learn 4 key best practices:
    1) Don’t mess with what users know – continue to use Microsoft Outlook to drive file transfers (just don’t leave it to Outlook to deliver them)
    2) Don’t leave it to users to decide when something is too big or too sensitive to send by email
    3) Do make the experience better and faster for users (as opposed to more complicated and slower)
    4) Have a policy (and protection) that covers email-based sharing even when mobile

    With Workshare, employees can email links to files, eliminating the need for attachments, while continuing to us the familiar Outlook to do it. Policy-enforcement means companies can secure, track, and expire file access and activity beyond the corporate firewall.

    Workshare also uses its customizable policy engine to ensure that the content that is shared is secured and removed of any sensitive information before it is shared.
    Intelligently scan and secure documents too large or too important to send by email. IT can set policies to determine when a file is too large to send, or critically when to block or clean a file if it contains sensitive hidden data that would expose the company to risk.
  • No longer are voice biometrics tentatively tested in single channels and measured against purely theoretical equal error rates.

These consumers are expecting a seamless experience that today is fragmented. Successful marketers realize that the experience must be integrated to live up to the brand across all touch points but as marketing channels continue to proliferate, it is extremely challenging to get the full picture of what that individual customer experience looks like.

    After this webinar you'll have insights to

    •Gain new techniques to enrich the customer experience by understanding and acting on behaviors, preferences and sentiment;

    •Deliver amazing and integrated mobile experiences at every single touchpoint of your brand;
