Powering Your Marketing and Sales Applications with Clean Data. “According to 92 percent of marketing and sales influencers surveyed, having valid contact data to work with is “very important” for their marketing and sales success.” (Source: Ascend2). Positioned as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools for the ninth consecutive year, Informatica is now offering an innovative, new approach to improving data quality designed specifically to turn this situation around: Cloud Data Quality Radar.
Without clean data, you can’t communicate and engage effectively with your customers and prospects - This directly impacts marketing campaign effectiveness, sales productivity and the customer experience.
One of the biggest challenges sales and marketing organizations face is that data decays over time - people move houses, switch jobs, or change their phone numbers. When combined with the fact that data is captured from an ever increasing number of sources and is used in different ways, the problem becomes exponentially worse.
Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar is a cloud application that quickly identifies, fixes, and monitors data quality problems in your business applications like Salesfroce and Marketo. Attend this short webinar to hear how you can:
•Easily identify and visualize data quality issues within your applications – and drive increased confidence in data
•Automatically fix the most impactful data quality problems sooner - while reducing reliance on IT for data quality related activities
•Continuously monitor data quality across source systems

The role of master data management (MDM) in the manufacturing industry has been evolving. Now it is tackling an array of business challenges in addition to addressing the traditional use cases like customer de-duplication and consolidation. Some of the early adopters in the industry have seen significant business advantages. In fact, a 360-degree view of customers fueled one $60 billion manufacturing company to improve cross-sell and upsell success by five percent. According to industry analysts, “eighty-nine percent of companies plan to compete primarily on the basis of the customer experience by 2016.” And yet, “fewer than half of companies rate their customer experience as exceptional today, but two-thirds expect it to be in two years.”
In this webinar, Wipro and Informatica will discuss how better customer data can help tackle some of the major strategic and operational business challenges manufacturers face. Our conversation will focus on:
•Industry trends impacting the customer experience and need for a 360-degree view of customers
•An overview of key TCC solution capabilities and value-add
•Business benefits of improved customer information
•A customer success story

Monica McDonnell and Richard Foskett with 30+ Years of Automotive & Data Management Experience discuss Disruption & Data.
The Connected Car is a clear example of digital disruption, affecting both products and business models within the automotive industry.

The new ruling by the Department of Labor became law this past June requiring the retirement industry to comply with the covenants by April 10, 2017, with exemptions phasing in through January 1, 2018. The rule drastically changes how financial advice is provided in the United States. It will introduce intense pressure on financial advisors to change the traditional advisory model from commission to fee-based compensation and will substantially change product fees and features.
Unfortunately, Retirement Planning, Wealth Management, Insurance companies, 401K companies large and small that look to comply with the new rule will face more scrutiny and reporting requirements that will expose holes in existing data management processes and technologies. Learn what some of these data challenges are, why they exist and why they have been difficult to address, and finally solutions to consider for this requirement and other regulations that require Great Data!

In our webinar, our guest speaker from Forrester will describe the Informatica-commissioned research on the emerging CDO function. This includes answering the following questions:
•What is driving the emergence of the CDO role?
•Is the CDO a short term function and a transition point to something else?
•What are the key functions that CDOs are trying to accomplish?
•What relationships does the CDO need?
•What are the key things that a CDO needs to do to succeed?

As organizations create increasingly complex software applications, IT development teams evolved their software creation practices for more flexibility, moving from waterfall models to agile or lean development practices.
Today, DevOps designates a set of tools, processes, best practices and corporate management guidelines that make an IT organization more agile and more efficient. While the software tools and practices promoted by DevOps practitioners are well understood, rigid infrastructures reduce the benefits and hinders the application of agile methods.
Join Amazon Web Services Premier Partner, 2nd Watch, for a live webinar to learn more about how to get the right approach to DevOps and Containers in the cloud.

Ransomware and destructive attacks have changed the cybersecurity landscape. Modern business requires enhanced access to data to improve productivity, attract and retain customers, and run efficient supply chains – making the network perimeter more difficult to defend. At the same time, criminals are no longer content to just steal information, instead extorting ransoms after encrypting data or sometimes seeking to cripple organizations by destroying their data.
In this webcast you will learn about:
-Dangerous new threats such as ransomware and hacktivism, and how they differ from traditional threats
-Why new threats require a new focus
-Cybersecurity frameworks and best practices
-Enhancing your data protection and recovery capabilities to improve your cybersecurity defenses
-Why some data protection approaches may not be sufficient for advanced threats and how an Isolated Recovery approach provides a best layer of defense
The competitive landscape of cloud computing in China and India looks very different today than it did a few years ago. Aside from gaining wholehearted support from local governments, positive investment climate has a role to play to ignite market interest and vendor support. While early cloud leaders like Amazon and Salesforce have helped define the evolving marketplace and invited further competition, local players, which used to be hampered by process oversights, are now turning to cloud-based business models and service delivery to reinvent themselves and stay agile as technology innovation collides with reality. How does the cloud market shape up in China and India so far? What types of cloud services will be important in near future? What does it mean for you going forward?

Avec le degré de maturité et le niveau de menace atteint par les ransomwares au cours de l’an dernier, comment pouvez-vous être sûrs que votre infrastructure IT est réellement protégée et que vous êtes prêt à parer à une attaque ?
Aujourd’hui, les responsables sécurité sont confrontés à :
•un manque de renseignements exploitables sur les menaces, qui leur permettraient de mieux cerner les acteurs et les campagnes susceptibles de viser leurs entreprises
•une carence en analystes de sécurité qualifiés, capables d’identifier le nombre croissant de menaces pénétrant leurs organisations. Par exemple, les cryptoransomwares sont en augmentation constante (+35 % en 2015 ) et il faut encore en moyenne plus de 200 jours à une entreprise pour découvrir qu’elle victime d’une attaque.
•peu d’expertise spécialisée dans les techniques requises pour réagir à des menaces et les neutraliser une fois que celles-ci ont pénétré leur environnement IT
Les gangs de rançonneurs ne cessant d’affiner leurs tactiques, les entreprises ont besoin d’être parfaitement au courant des menaces et des risques qu’elles encourent. Symantec vous donne rendez-vous pour un webcast consacré aux attaques par ransomware. Vous y découvrirez ce qui est arrivé à une société et les mesures qu’elle a prises pour remédier à la menace.
