Many believe an IT service catalog is a vital element of a successful service management strategy, representing the capabilities and image of the IT organization. There’s no lack of seemingly sound advice. Then why is it the catalog is all too often where the service experience begins and ends, badly for the customer? What is the secret to a well-designed service catalog? Does it really require you to define your services at the outset? What is the customer’s role in a design?
In this presentation we shall explore how successful service businesses approach designing a service catalog customer love to use, including:
The 5 common mistakes with traditional IT service catalogs initiatives;
The role of a catalog in the customer’s service experience;
The relationship between a service portal, knowledge base, fulfillment process, and the catalog.
Building brand affection is one of the best things you can do for any product. Think about it -- do you ask for a tissue or do you ask for a Kleenex? Do you look for a plastic bandage or do you ask for a Band-Aid? Do you "use a search engine to find out information about your blind date" or do you Google them?
This is more than performance marketing -- which evolved solely to drive transactions and downloads -- this is awareness marketing. And for the games community, it's about getting people to remember and associate an emotion with your game, so they seek it out now -- and later. But brand awareness is hard to measure -- and hard to get your arms around. Many games teams spend little to no budget, favoring the results-focused performance marketing. We're going to show you how to be better than them -- and get the advantage for your mobile game, starting today.
Venturebeat's own CEO Matt Marshall will sit down with execs from the gaming industry such as Seriously's VP of marketing and Eli Danziger, product manager for YouTube Ads as well as the CMO of Smule, Rob Singer. Together, we'll discuss storytelling and brand awareness marketing tips tailored to mobile games today.
In this third installment of our Building Games Communities series, you will:
* Learn how to use YouTube and other channels to drive brand awareness for mobile games;
* Find the right time to invest in brand awareness marketing in your mobile game lifecycle; and
* Understand the right KPIs to measure ROI on awareness marketing.
Our esteemed panel for this rockstar discussion includes:
* Matt Marshall, CEO, VentureBeat
* Phil Hickey, VP Marketing and Communications; Seriously
* Eli Danziger, product manager, YouTube
* Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, GamesBeat

There is no such thing as a "secure" system - we do our level best to design them as well as we can, to put controls and measures in place - but, at the end of the day, things can and do go awry. Today we are going to talk about Forensics, and how it is the opposite side of the coin from security. What can we do in advance to aid in forensic investigation? What do we do at the point of a compromise to allow us to preserve as much evidence as is possible? And, ultimately, how to we take a forensic analysis and learn from it to create a better system the next time?Read more >

We live in a digitally driven world.

We all know that when sales and marketing are in sync, deals close faster and revenues soar. The research tells us it’s true. Our gut tells us it’s true. But putting ideas into action isn’t always so easy. Marketing often lacks perspective on what’s really going on in the field, and how to best influence organizational change. So, we’re calling in an expert to give you insight into what it’s like to “bleed sales.”
Join Tiffani Bova, Global Customer Growth and Innovation Evangelist at Salesforce — and self-proclaimed “recovering sales rep” — as she discusses current trends in B2B marketing, and shares her perspective on how to build better marketing-sales relationships. In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How to translate current buying trends into actionable playbooks
- Why your sales training isn’t sticking
- Why sales and marketing alignment is more important now than ever before
We know that contention between Sales and Marketing organizations impacts both top and bottom lines – and can lead to significant lost revenue potential and productivity issues in both organizations. With contributors and teams that speak very different languages, coming from different cultures, you need more than technology, tools, and automation to close those gaps.
There’s hard work required here for both Sales and Marketing organizations. At the leadership and operational level. And no roadmap to get that done.
The TAS Group is working every day to solve this issue. Maureen & Matt will share how they're working to increase understanding, awareness, and value between leadership and operational levels in order to optimize revenue from New & Base. It's challenging but do-able and worth it.
At Love Will Keep Us Together (Revenue Love, that is), you'll learn:
· Their strategies & cadence for staying connected
· Finding Comfort with Friction
· Enabling Marketers to be more responsive
· Listening, T&Is, Sales Kickoffs, participating on calls, ride-alongs
· How Sales is feeding back into marketing on issues targets care the most about
Gartner predicts that by 2017 more than 50% of companies will have implemented a BYOD (bring your own device) program. Whether you already have BYOD, or are planning for your BYOD future, security is likely one of your top concerns. Fortunately, when done right BYOD can increase employee productivity and workforce satisfaction while maintaining the security you need.
Unfortunately, many companies often struggle by implementing BYOD policies that are too intrusive to end-user’s personal devices. The business results and security benefits are lost altogether.
In this webinar you will learn how focusing on business apps and data can drive the mobile security you need with the BYOD your employees love.
Carlos Montero-Luque, Chief Technology Officer at Apperian will reveal:
• Why focusing on the true end-point of mobility, the apps and data, is the best approach to create a secure BYOD environment
• How a zero-touch, non-intrusive BYOD security approach increases employee productivity
• What practical steps you can take to simplify the complexity of supporting multiple devices, operating systems, and contingent workforce BYOD environments.

With this work, NYCOMPS has solved many exciting membrane protein structures.
Mark Dumont is a Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Rochester Medical School. One of the Principal Investigators of the Membrane Protein Structural Biology Consortium, he has been involved in expression and purification of MPs as part of the Center for High Throughput Structural Biology, and the project for Structural Genomics of Pathogenic Protozoa.
