Commercial analytic solutions are becoming more and more common within the Pharma industry. Companies are spending millions implementing tools which are aimed at helping users identify opportunities to improve the bottom line, segment customers, track multichannel campaign success and meet a myriad of other objectives. Despite all the 'perceived' value these tools can add, they remain largely unused. Excuses for the lack of adoption are varied but can generally be classified into one of three areas - they are either too complex, it isn't convenient to use or it just doesn't deliver on the value promised. These issues are compounded by the fact that they are generally only identified when the solution has been deployed and expected to be used. By ensuring that these issues are addressed at all stages during the development and not just when adoption targets are not being met, commercial analytic solutions can be exploited to attain the anticipated value and more.Read more >
Precision Content is a series of methods and principles for structured authoring developed by Rob Hanna in 2013. This methodology is based on a well-known body of research founded in cognitive and behavioral sciences that theorizes that all structured information can be classified into one of a discrete number of information types. Each of these information types defines how the information is best structured and written to suit the intended reader response.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and his special guest, Rob Hanna, President of Precision Content for this free, one-hour webinar. In this session, Rob will guide you through an interactive exploration into how our brains work with information; explain how the Precision Content information types work to capture information used in any piece of business or technical content; discuss how Precision Content can help authors working with DITA/XML, and demonstrate how Precision Content is used to provide better clarity and precision to information.
Skin cancer is by far the most prevalent cancer. Each year, approximately 3.4 million people in the US alone are diagnosed with some form of skin cancer. Skin cancer can be highly treatable if it is detected and classified early, and this detection and classification is often aided by immunohistochemistry. This presentation covers many of the basic science, facts, and statistics of skin cancer, as well as the utility of immunohistochemical testing with markers such as S-100, SOX-10, Ber-Ep4, and HHV-8 in the accurate diagnosis and survival rates of skin cancer. Continuing education credits for attending this webinar will be offered through the National Society of HistotechnologyRead more >
Most corporate networks are complex and include various operating systems, servers and massive amounts of data. This data is transferred, stored and accessed across the network. In 2014, 43% of data breaches were classified as a result of lost or stolen drives or due to accidently making data public . Encrypting this data is a great way to protect against these risks but with so many different platforms, operating systems, servers and applications, the task can be daunting.
In this webcast, we’ll show you how Symantec’s Encryption solutions can help you achieve heterogeneous encryption across your entire network and of all critical data whether it’s at rest or in motion.
Join us on January 26th at 10am PT to learn how.
