As you move to the cloud, ensure that you secure your IT Delivery apabilities with spelled out business objectives to which the IT organisation can deliver with an effective Service Strategy to leverage IT in the execution of the Business Strategy http://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/29211 .
Where security is important, and I would think twice on the data that I would choose to put on the cloud, Time to Market and Cost Effectiveness are the critical success factors.
Time to Market should not only include “how fast do we get IT services set” but how can we leverage the business strategy execution with IT as we support the end to end delivery of new products / services to market.
The impact of Cost Effectiveness can be measured only as Total Cost of Ownership with cost, consumption and chargeback is defined (Cloud Computing: Fluff or Lightening http://www.brighttalk.com/community/it-service-management/webcast/21892 ).
We also need to define a clear IT Service Strategy with an “IT Business Model” (“This is how we deliver IT services to the business”) and a “Business (IT) Value proposition” (“This is how we support business objectives with services in a time to market perspective”).
Content marketing is an exciting concept that can generate a tremendous amount of success when executed correctly. For a lot of us, the issue is just that: we are not sure exactly how to execute a content marketing program. Suffice it to say that content marketing is the last step in the overall content creation process, and success with the process all comes down to your content strategy.
In this session, we'll start off by going over exactly what the difference between content strategy and content marketing really is. Subsequently, we'll examine how to conduct a content strategy audit in order to ensure that our content is working towards helping us achieve our goals. Attendees will walk away with the necessary steps and action items to review key performance indicators related to their content, identify opportunities through the analysis of social data and optimize their content strategy based on the findings of their audit.
Content marketing can be a cornerstone of success when it comes to your social business. In order for that to be the case, a fully optimized content strategy needs to be in place.

Cloud, Big Data, ITSM – all things we should be doing. Right?
Perhaps. As IT professionals, we’re often so heads-down keeping the lights on that we forget why we’re doing all this work in the first place: Our CUSTOMERS! This session begins with offering some key reasons companies implement Service Management and how it can bring value to the organization, followed by implementation strategies that rely heavily on customer engagement. Listeners will be able to clearly envision where customer involvement is critical vs. those internal processes they can craft themselves.
Key points of this session include:
- Engaging customers in the processes of Service Strategy
- The importance of customer involvement in Service Design
- Adoption and buy-in for service improvement
- The importance of the “service review” meeting
A B2B marketer’s life is often focused on creating killer campaigns, generating leads and developing content to fill the top of the sales funnel. Unfortunately, that is why many B2B marketers are so busy, yet have only a small percentage of revenue, if any, that they can attribute to their activities.
Why? Without a solid Demand Generation Strategy – lead generation is nothing more than a bunch of tactics that attempt to build pipeline, ineffectively.
This webinar will teach marketers how to live by 3 Rules of Strategy:
•Become more buyer-centric throughout our marketing
•Eliminate tactical-focused campaigns
•Track results and continuously optimize
According to Gartner, organizations spend over 80% of their security product dollars on their networks and their endpoints. However, these spending priorities are increasingly at odds with the threat landscape: it’s been over a decade since network perimeter was declared dead, and with the advent of mobility and BYOD, endpoint security has become both more challenging and less relevant to stopping today’s threats. Advanced threats no longer target networks, servers or endpoints: they target users, the data they have access to, and the transactions they facilitate.
Join Gartner Research VP Peter Firstbrook and Proofpoint SVP of Cybersecurity Strategy Ryan Kalember as they discuss how organizations can better position themselves to defend against advanced threats as they adjust to the cloud-enabled, mobile-friendly, and socially networked way their users work today.
