  • Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access
    Beyond 2FA: The Smart Way to Manage Cloud Access Mor Ahuvia, Authentication Product Marketing at Gemalto Recorded: May 9 2017 44 mins
    Cloud apps are being pulled into the enterprise hand-over-fist, with 93% of organizations using cloud-based IT services. But the efficiencies and convenience offered by cloud apps come at a price. While organizations have long been applying two-factor authentication to their network, VPN and email portals, they have failed to extend that same level of security to cloud-based applications, such as Office 365, AWS and Salesforce.

    But the need for stronger cloud access security is only part of the story. Businesses looking to scale and increase their cloud adoption find there are other issues to contend with. Visibility into cloud access events and regulatory compliance become challenging to maintain. Helpdesk staff are burdened with password resets, and the most important link in the chain—users—are plagued with password fatigue.

    This webinar explains:
    •Challenges to greater cloud adoption in the fintech space
    •How strong authentication complements access management
    •Why cloud access management is critical to an organization’s cloud adoption strategy

    The Connected Marketer | What It Is and Why You Must Become One Michael Becker Co-founder, mCordis, Inc. & The Connected Marketer & Alison Murdock, SVP Marketing, Verto Analytics Recorded: Apr 27 2017 30 mins
    Status Quo Marketers hold on to a bygone era of advertising by flooding the market with cross-channel promotions and messaging in the hopes of grabbing an individual’s attention. They struggle to absorb, and maybe, ignore critical facts about how consumer behavior has changed. Connected Marketers, on the other hand, understand that grabbing a person's attention involves a value exchange. These marketers use insights and data to learn when and where to reach the individual and how to meet her needs, on her terms.

    In this live Q&A, we’ll discuss what it means to be a Connected Marketer and why it’s critical to make that shift now. We’ll explore:

    - Attributes of the Connected Individual and the Connected Marketer
    - How marketers use data and insights to engage with consumers
    - Shining examples of companies who embrace connected marketing
    - How to make the shift now

  • VR/AR For Enterprise: Building a Practical Roadmap for Success
    VR/AR For Enterprise: Building a Practical Roadmap for Success Amy Peck, Founder, endeavorVR Recorded: Apr 26 2017 31 mins
    While many companies and institutions understand the need to investigate AR and VR, the path to success is a long one. Often, there are several teams at a single company looking at ways to leverage this technology, for internal processes as well as customer- and consumer-facing solutions.
    This panel will explore ways to effectively bring this vision to fruition:
    • Identifying the right use cases
    • Getting internal buy-in and budget
    • Finding development resources
    • Rolling out new AR/VR processes and products
  • Why AR/VR Will Disrupt Productivity and Collaboration in the Enterprise
    Why AR/VR Will Disrupt Productivity and Collaboration in the Enterprise John Nall, CEO, Appzion Recorded: Apr 26 2017 60 mins
    Enterprise is the best starting or entry point for AR and VR because the pain points are high, the dollars are there to make a strong ROI case for use, and the wearable form factor is much less of an issue. AR and VR technologies will be instrumental in closing the skill gap that is responsible for the shortage of skilled manufacturing workers. We are optimistic that industrial productivity will grow and that this will ultimately translate into higher wages because AR and VR will allow more workers to do high-skill jobs, and improve their performance.

    Push notifications that work: 6 tips for building a devoted user base Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Jul 13 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A push notification is a tricky kind of social engagement: it can be a tap on the shoulder, a punch in the face, or water torture. In other words, it can be tremendously successful at driving commerce and engagement, or it could piss your customer off so badly they'll go rip you a new one on Twitter. And we've seen how well that works out for brands.

    At the very least, every misstep reduces open rates, strikes a blow against retention and destroys engagement. You want to know how to not be the boor at a cocktail party, because push notifications, one of the most powerful and immediate engagement tools in your arsenal (when you do it right) can garner 2770% higher conversion rates.

    Don't be part of the 63 percent of marketers who stumble on the messaging, timing, and frequency of your notification strategy—join this interactive VB Live event.

    You'll:

    For LTV, engagement, and life­cycle, organic installs blow paid install campaigns out of the water—and they're a lot cheaper.

To get the most out of your entire marketing funnel, not just your app store presence, you need to step up your ASO game with these key takeaways from our latest in-depth, Godzilla-sized ASO report.
