    • 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.

    • Best Practices for Consolidated Billing & Tagging to Reduce Multi-Account Costs
      Best Practices for Consolidated Billing & Tagging to Reduce Multi-Account Costs Dave DeYager, CloudCheckr Support & Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Jul 10 2017 6:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    • Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides organizations with the option of consolidated billing, to unify data from separate accounts under one centralized payer account. Consolidated billing enables simplified operations for large organizations, while increasing the possibility of volume discounts.

      However, with consolidation comes the responsibility of allocation; organizations with multiple accounts—departments, projects, customers, etc.—are faced with the challenge of enforcing accountability. For internal teams, budget allocation and forecasting can be a struggle; for Managed Service Providers, chargebacks and invoicing can be a nightmare.

      The CloudCheckr platform offers tagging to help user manage their instances, images, and EC2 resources. In this webcast, learn how to leverage consolidated billing and tagging to improve efficiencies and reduce cloud costs. Attendees will learn:

      - How consolidated billing helps to improve governance and save on volume purchasing for multiple cloud accounts
      - Why tagging is critical to managing budgets, allocating costs, and enabling chargebacks
      - What to consider when creating a tagging strategy
      - How CloudCheckr helps automate billing processes across accounts

    • 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.
