  • Boosting consumer engagement with next gen chat bots Boosting consumer engagement with next gen chat bots Peter Wannemacher, Senior analyst, Forrester Research Recorded: Nov 9 2016 61 mins
    Stop implementing; start planning. Forrester Research shows that while messaging platform chatbots can be effective, the customer experience is too often unacceptably poor. And while it’s not a big deal when you’re ordering a pizza, the stakes are far too high for financial institutions to go all in on this generation’s chatbot technology without the right planning.

    Simply put, being too early can be the same as being wrong. Bots are only as good as the systems behind them — outdated architecture and poor integration can sabotage your services and drive away customers.

    But given bot technologies are shaping up to be an essential part of the FI and fintech mix, your next two to three years should be devoted to investing in foundational digital initiatives that will position you to leverage the future that’s coming fast.

    Join this free VB Live event to learn how to reap the rewards of future fintech AI innovation — and get it right the first time.

  • BotBeat: B2B and B2C use case for bots BotBeat: B2B and B2C use case for bots Jon Cifuentes, Analyst, VentureBeat Recorded: Aug 30 2016 53 mins
    Bots are more than just trendy. They’re increasingly becoming a smart business decision and one that more than just the big players are sitting up and noticing. From Foursquare’s Marsbot (eatery recommendations) to Uber (rides) to the many bots that plug in to Slack, it’s clear there is both a B2B and B2C purpose for bots.

    For Activision, using bots via Facebook to announce this year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release to consumers netted them over 6 million messages between users. The beauty of bots, as Activision and others have discovered, is that they allow businesses greater access to increasingly mobile messaging consumers. Facebook is investing fully in the chatbot experience with brands including Staples, Bank of America, and Taco Bell.

    For both consumer brands and B2B companies, the time is now to consider the implications of bots for the bottom line.

    Join this panel of executive leaders as they discuss the use cases for bots for consumers and between businesses, including:

    • Elements of a successful bot strategy
    • Where consumers prefer to interact with bots
    * In-depth discussion of the B2B use cases for bots

    Speakers include:
    * Amir Shevat, Head of Developer Relations, Slack
    * Robert Hoffer, "The Bot Father"

  • VC Q1 Martech Review: What's hot, not, and how to get noticed VC Q1 Martech Review: What's hot, not, and how to get noticed Jon Cifuentes - Research Analyst; VB Insight Recorded: Mar 31 2016 63 mins
    It’s easy to get sucked in by alarmist headlines about shrinking investor confidence. But hear this: last year, more than 400 VC’s poured over $11 billion into 323 marketing tech startups. For martech, it was a record year. There’s no question that software startup funding is booming, and 2016 is off to a similarly torrid start.

    The unprecedented growth has been experienced across all factors: deal sizes, frequency, and valuations. Yes, VC's cooled on growth capital investments, particularly in tech at the end of last year. There were a number of reasons: fluctuating financial markets, markdowns from institutional investors, global conflict, and others.

    But what's clear is that investors are making a strong pivot to value revenue over growth in the later stages. That's an important distinction, and will shape the industry moving forward.

    So what does all that mean for you? Based on the most current Q1 research, we’ll break down what kinds of companies investors are responding to, which VCs are leading the pack, and what’s important to them when considering where to park their investment dollars, i.e. what you need to do to get their attention.

    In this webinar, you’ll:

    * Learn which types of companies are gaining funding, and where in the marketing tech universe they fit.
    * Discover where we're seeing the biggest areas of consolidation.
    * Find out who the most involved / most active VCs are.
    * Understand implications for investors, vendors, and most importantly marketing technology buyers and users.
    * Learn how to get noticed by top VCs, straight from investors.

    Speakers:

    * Ravi Belani, Managing Partner, Alchemist Accelerator

  • Smart Cities of India: Lopsided Development or Inclusive Growth? Smart Cities of India: Lopsided Development or Inclusive Growth? Archana Vidyasekar and Ayush Kachru, Frost & Sullivan; Lux Rao Hewlett Packard Enterprise Recorded: Jan 28 2016 64 mins
    It is projected that urban India will contribute about 75% of the national GDP in the next 15 years. With the rapid rate of urbanization and depleting resources, it is essential for India to rethink its strategy to see how it can best optimize the capabilities of its physical infrastructure.

    By leveraging global best practices in smart city development and ICT (Information and Communication Technology), India is in a unique position to leapfrog a few stages of growth to become a global superpower.

    In 2015, the Indian government announced an ambitious plan to develop 100 smart cities, with a commitment of spending $7.27 billion over the next five years. The infrastructure overhaul would include creating intelligent transport systems, smart grids, smart waste management, and smart water grids/solutions.

    In this presentation, we will look at the roadmap for Indian smart cities, along with the anticipated challenge of meeting capex requirements and the dire need for devising innovative business models to make “Smart Cities in India” a success story.

    • Learn about the Indian government's $7.3 billion smart city mission aimed at applying smart solutions to improve infrastructure and service delivery in Indian cities.
    • Discover the key challenges with respect to regulation, funding and private/public partnerships.

  • Webinar Discusses Impact of Continua Health Alliance Upcoming Standards Webinar Discusses Impact of Continua Health Alliance Upcoming Standards Alice Borrelli, Intel; Robert Havasy, Personal Connected Health Alliance, Niklas Sundler, Telia Recorded: Dec 17 2015 66 mins
    Across Europe, there is a high level of focus on adoption of digital health as a means to drive healthcare efficiency. In Sweden, there are several projects that have been initiated to address this challenge and there is an ongoing discussion about the role of Continua. One of the challenges in achieving the full potential of digital health is turning the data collected from a variety of sources into accessible timely information that individuals (patients, careers, clinicians and managers) can act on. Interoperability standards have an important part to play in generating this value from the investment made in data collection and storage. By using an international standard, your project won't get locked into one vendor and it will be easy to share information between systems.
