Join Leah and Peter as they provide the guidelines that are vendor agnostic and will support all major solid state storage system technologies.Read more >
A demonstrable ability to survive and recover from major disruptive events has become one of the most important success aspect of any business continuity management programme. Measuring the organisation's BCM maturity is essential as the results are highly useful, both as a measure for BCM capability, and as a decision-making facilitator regarding areas in need of greater attention in order to improve BCM maturity. It is therefore a model which addresses the need by management to assess the effectiveness of their programmes, as well as optimise their BCM spend.Read more >
What we track and measure has a direct impact on people’s motivation
and drive at work – and therefore the actual outputs we are measuring.

behaviour and thinking, and helping rather than hindering
performance and what to do if they aren’t.
Tips and techniques from a leading thinker and practitioner in the
Organisational Behaviour field.
Performance analytics have become increasingly advanced with traditional means of tracking the effectiveness and efficiency of the recruitment function giving way to far more sophisticated methods. Questions around how we measure RPO success and what we use to do so are more pertinent now than ever.
To find out what companies really think about RPO metrics and how they could be improved in the future, Futurestep partnered with HRO Today Magazine to undertake a primary market research study among users of recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services. We focused our investigation on three key areas:
- What Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are being used in the RPO space?
- How satisfied are users with those metrics?
- What metrics do users want that they don’t currently have?
Please join us as we review the findings of Measuring Up?, our research report about RPO metrics, and discuss the relationship between successful recruitment metrics and successful RPOs.

Powerful reporting and actionable insights are key to optimizing your funnel, but 48% of B2B marketers feel they lack the analytics and reporting skills to measure their return on investment, and 33% aren't measuring ROI at all (Omobono).
Fortunately, B2B marketers can use the power of Pardot + Salesforce to easily understand which campaigns, content, and channels truly impact ROI. Join Thomas Krawczyk, Solutions Engineer at Salesforce Pardot, for a 40-minute webinar to learn more about:
- how Salesforce and Pardot work together to illuminate the marketing activities that are closing deals
- which stage of the sales cycle your prospects are in — and where there are bottlenecks in your funnel
- how to use data to optimize and forecast for better results
The latest advances in online tracking give b2b marketers access to a wealth of data that can be used to analyse the success of marketing communications campaigns. Yet in reality it is often a case of information overload, and in many cases the ready availability of digital analytics has resulted in higher expectations at board level when it comes to justifying spend on PR and other offline marketing tactics.
In this new webinar, Jenny discusses how b2b marketers should measure success on an ongoing basis as part of a culture of continuous improvement. She first looks at the theory behind evaluation and progress in the global PR industry since the Barcelona Principles were published back in 2010. She then gives practical examples as to how time-poor b2b marketers can start to implement best practice evaluation within an organisation, with a particular focus on measuring the success of integrated campaigns.
Measuring the attribution of digital channels, websites etc., has been mainly centred of volumes of ‘visitors’. Whereas it’s ‘conversions’ that really matter.

It also will be covering ‘engagement value’ best practices and techniques with examples or organisations who have successful adopted this strategy.

It's vital to monitor how your customers feel about your business. But now that so many of those customers live behind the mobile app, many traditional methods for collecting customer feedback aren't as effective as they used to be. This session will help.

The traditional approach to measuring service availability has significant drawbacks. It tends to focus on the technical aspects of the service supplier's infrastructure and it is decoupled from the value proposition of the service. While it remains important to monitor one's infrastructure, it is of critical importance to define whether a service instance has succeeded or failed. This metric, together with the nature of the demand for the service determine the most appropriate way to monitor the delivery of the service.Read more >
Putting a Software Asset Management program in place requires a substantial and sustained commitment on behalf of an enterprise. This involves putting in place controls and processes to assure best practices, the purchase and integration of a SAM platform for managing on-premise desktop and data center software, PCs, laptops and mobile devices, as well as Cloud and SaaS software subscriptions. Determining what the return from this investment is a key consideration for most organizations today. John Burleson will show tools in practice today to estimate the returns from this effort, and show case studies that have in real-life played out to produce demonstrable and calculable returns.Read more >
Ensuring your CIRP is a plan for disaster – not a disaster waiting to happen.
Most organizations establish Cybersecurity Incident Response Plans (CIRP) with great intentions of leveraging them during security breaches. The reality is, many times once a CIRP is established it gets filed away to collect dust on a shelf until a breach occurs, leaving it out of date and out of mind. If a breach occurred tomorrow, would your organization know the proper steps and procedures to eradicate the threat... who the key stake holders are and the communications flow... when and how to reach out to a third-party for support?
All of these are included as a part of your CIRP, but using a dusty CIRP as a guide for the first time during a breach is not a plan – it’s a disaster waiting to happen. Testing your plan prior to an incident is the key to minimize the duration, impact and cost of a breach to your organization.
During this interactive webinar, Tony Kirtley, Senior Incident Response Consultant at Dell SecureWorks, will share the importance of testing your CIRP plan through regular tabletop exercises to help identify your organization's strengths and weaknesses, and further the development of your proactive security capabilities.
In addition you will learn:
- What makes an effective tabletop exercise?
- Real stories of how organizations benefited from tabletop exercises.
- The benefit of bringing in an objective third party to facilitate your table top exercise.
Marketers take prospective buyers on a journey to becoming loyal customers. By organizing events, launching website content, developing white papers, distributing email campaigns and more, marketers own a significant piece of the customer experience. Yet most aren’t able to fully measure the impact of all their efforts on revenue—which is critical in order to ensure a seat at the strategy table and necessary budget for next year.
It's time to learn the three secrets to more effectively measuring marketing’s impact on revenue.
The increasing volume of breaches we hear about in the news highlights the challenge risk managers face in working to address cyber risk. Current assessment methods, while insightful, are inadequate due to the pace at which security postures change, leaving organizations vulnerable and exposed in the blink of an eye. In order to truly reduce security risk, managers need more insight and better tools that allow for continuous visibility into the ever-changing network environments they are administering.
Join Stephen Boyer, CTO and co-founder of BitSight Technologies, and Oliver Brew, Vice President of Professional Liability at Liberty International Underwriters (LIU) for this webinar to discover:
- Why measuring security risk is difficult and how some assessment methods leave organizations vulnerable to threats and financial loss
- How forward-looking organizations are using Big Data to reduce risk, increase transparency and address new regulatory requirements
- Case Study: How LIU is using Security Ratings to mitigate risk
