    • Pricing Power: Optimize Retail Promotions for Competitive Advantage
      Pricing Power: Optimize Retail Promotions for Competitive Advantage Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo Recorded: Jun 9 2016 9:30 am UTC 40 mins
    • Retailers face intense competition for a decreasing share of the customer's wallet and the challenges are even more acute in markets that are deflationary. Promotions now play an increasingly important role in growing sales but an excessive dependence on deep and broader discounts and promotions can damage not only the bottom line but also the brand.

      What Will You Learn?
      In this webinar, we highlight some of the trends that are driving the increased use of promotions and discounts in retailing. We explain how information technology can help retailers develop "smarter" promotional and discount strategies. These seek to influence customer behavior and boost loyalty instead of simply generating a short-lived sales boost or clearing inventories.

      Who Should Attend?
      Roles with business responsibility in business processes in the Retail industry, for instance, Marketers, Store Managers, CIOs, CMOs, Merchandise Managers, etc.

      This year, it is expected that 74% of all online traffic will be video with a combination of network broadcasters and Over The Top (OTT) content providers bringing compelling content to and through the Internet. 55% of people in the United States watch video online every day. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Tumbler have launched live streaming capabilities. Twitch, the number one online gaming video platform, sees 9.7 million daily active users (DAUs), with 2 million users broadcasting live streams each month. eSports is a huge gaming draw with some companies seeing upward of 96 million monthly average users (MAUs). And we haven’t even mentioned augmented and virtual reality, yet.

      Network speed, capacity and flexibility to meet the growing demand are improving - but not fast enough and with significant needs still not being addressed. This panel will look at the challenges facing getting video to and from end users including: how to manage the need to deliver to both broadcast and OTT; how to ensure seamless customer experiences; what to expect as 4K and higher resolution cameras become ubiquitous; what network buildout and optimization need to take place to ensure the demand for ultra high speed broadband is met.

      You can continue the conversation after the webcast during the upcoming TIA Connectivity Jam, being held June 5-7 in Dallas, TX.

    • Investment Trust Quirks…And How To Manage Them
      Investment Trust Quirks…And How To Manage Them Best Advice: Closed-end Fund Forum Recorded: Jun 13 2012 12:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    • Advisers have traditionally been put off investment trusts by perceived complexity. In reality, closed-ended funds are no more complex than open-ended, but it is worth examining the ‘tricks of the trade’ and how expert investors in investment trusts manage the quirks of investment trusts, notably discounts, liquidity and governance. Investors will also talk through where they use investment trusts and where open-ended funds might be more appropriate.

    • Quantifying Cloud Risk
      Quantifying Cloud Risk Jack Jones, CISSP, CRISC, CISM, CISA EVP R&D, RiskLens Inc. Recorded: Nov 4 2016 6:00 pm UTC 54 mins
    • Business executives are unlikely to ever really understand risk statements like “High risk”, “Medium risk” and “Low risk”. As a result, they sometimes discount higher risk situations as “infosec conservatism.” Risk quantification can be a powerful tool to help them better understand and appropriately prioritize infosec risk scenarios. In this session, Jack will walk participants through an analysis of a specific cloud service leveraging the Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) framework. The analysis results will be described in business terms that any executive would understand. This session will demonstrate a pragmatic approach to quantifying cloud-related risk.

    • Avoiding IT and Operational Technology Convergence Pitfalls
      Avoiding IT and Operational Technology Convergence Pitfalls Dan Ortega - Vice President of Marketing Recorded: Mar 23 2017 11:40 pm UTC 4 mins
    • In this video, we discuss pitfalls to avoid when consolidating IT and Operational Technologies

      A key technology convergence impacting the mainstream adoption of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) is the coming together of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT).
      Below we explore five potential pitfalls to avoid when considering unified IT and OT:
      1.Visibility: Improving visibility across unified IT/OT infrastructure has some benefits such as enabling a single service desk to handle both IT and OT domains, and being able to use common management tools.

      2.Security: We have discussed how operational technology can create a risk for IT. There is, however, an upside of converging IT and OT. The converged technology infrastructure can be subject to the same security policies and can use common compliance controls.

      3.Scalability: By operating OT and IT in separate silos, you miss out on opportunities to procure complimentary technology for both. Purchasing can negotiate better discounts if they are buying technology in high volumes and IT gets to buy IT and OT technology that works together because it can be pre-integrated.

      4.Administration: By keeping IT and OT separated, an organization cannot benefit from being able to lower administration costs through streamlining and centralizing management.

      5.Collaboration: Higher up the food chain, since OT is normally more closely aligned with how the business makes money, a converged IT and OT solution can improve the partnership between business and IT.
      Blazent focuses on providing near real-time insights that can be gained by being able to ingest and analyze large numbers of IT and IoT data streams, correcting data gaps and inconsistencies before the data is consumed.
