In Part 1 of this compelling Masters of Mobile Data series, you'll learn how to acquire high value users the right way. If you build it, they will come. Right. That may be the hope of many mobile app publishers, but it’s not even remotely true when it comes to the battle for quality users in 2016. And while most app publishers know it’s essential to have a fierce user acquisition strategy in place, what that consists of and how they put it into practice is another thing altogether.
That’s why VentureBeat took a deep dive into mobile user acquisition. We were determined to find out what’s working for successful app publishers, what you should be paying to acquire high-value users, and which user acquisition solutions you need to partner with in order to have an ironclad UA methodology in place.
In the process, we surveyed over 700 mobile developers with a billion users among them. We also studied data summarizing the results of almost 14 billion mobile ads, and talked to leading user acquisition experts.
Of course, you could read the full report -- or you could tune into this not-to-be missed webinar that will cover the most essential takeaways needed to hook those quality users.
In this webinar, you’ll:
* Learn the price app publishers are currently paying to acquire quality users across several categories

The secret to catching intruders with your SIEM is to feed it as much information as possible, the infosec world has been doing a better and better job by scaling SIEM technology up and integrating nearly every raw audit log from network devices, operating systems and even applications. But these logs are more raw data than refined information. It's time to make sure you are also feeding your SIEM the high value sources of security information from all the other security technologies and products on your network. You want your SIEM to have deep and wide visibility. Visibility at every level of your technology stack and across your entire network.
When you look at the event log spectrum ranging from raw log data to high level/value security information - nothing is higher level, more refined and actionable than security technologies such as your:
-Next generation firewall
The list goes on. In this webinar learn the different opportunities to feed your SIEM extra nutritious event feeds from all the different security technologies on your network. Also, look at real world scenarios and explore how to correlate high level security information like this with the low level stuff coming from more traditional logs.

Join us for a webcast briefing by Stefan Isaacs and James Tomlins, co-fund managers of the M&G Global High Yield Corporate Bond Fund.
Following a volatile period towards the end of 2014, high yield bonds have delivered steady returns in the first few months of 2015. Indeed, while government bonds have suffered a sharp sell-off in recent weeks, high yield has benefited from its relatively low sensitivity to rates and produced further robust gains. In the webcast, Stefan and James will provide an overview of these recent developments and discuss their current outlook for the asset class.
James will also provide a brief update on the M&G Global Floating Rate High Yield Fund. Given their lack of interest rate duration, high yield floating rate notes (FRNs) have been well insulated from the recent turbulence in government bond markets. However, with an exposure to credit, these instruments have been able to benefit from the modest tightening in spreads since the start of the year.
Overall, Stefan and James maintain a positive outlook for high yield bonds which they think offer an attractive source of income in the current low interest rate environment. Moreover, against a backdrop of modest economic growth, accommodative policy from the world’s central banks and low corporate default rates, high yield valuations should continue to be well supported over the coming months.
The call will start at 10:00am BST (11.00am CET) on Thursday 18 June, will include a Q&A session and is expected to last an hour.
As more consumers use smart phones to search for information while on the go, advertisers are embracing a new (old) way to connect with consumers by turning mobile searches and mobile ads into phone leads. According to Google, 70% of all mobile searchers have called a business directly from search ads using Adwords click-to-call ads and research firm BIA, estimates that mobile search will generate more than 70 billion calls from consumers to businesses in 2018!
While the prospect of moving beyond impressions and clicks to drive new, high-value, phone leads is incredibly appealing to many businesses; it is also raising some important questions:
•How will businesses manage the exploding call volume?
•How can inbound calls be identified by the advertisement that was clicked on?
•How can non-lead related calls be routed to self-service channels?
•How can the most important calls be routed to right person to respond?
•How will they be tracked?
•How can businesses staff to handle fluctuate call volume?
Join Michael Boland, industry analyst from research firm BIA/Kelsey and Richard Dumas, Director of Product Marketing at Five9 for this informative webinar that addresses the above questions around this mobile click-to-call trend and provides useful advice for businesses that want to maximize sales conversions from mobile click-to-call campaigns.
