Customer experience is a tough one -- we all have seen those businesses who think they're building a great scalable customer experience, but have customers who might not have the same opinion. And it's not enough to build a great product -- we define ourselves in the marketplace through each and every interaction we have with the customer.
You might understand that the reason you're doing something is for a very valid business reason, but the customer may interpret that action entirely differently. And your world class customer service can sometimes start to falter as your startup organization adds more resources and more layers -- good for your growth but sometimes risking the very people who made your company successful. Ouch.
Customer engagement doesn't take costly tools and high priced business analysts -- but it's also not always intuitive. We're going to show you some no-nonsense ways to keep customers loyal and driving growth while also building amazing customer experience that scales along with your business. Our panel of experts will share tactics and strategies that will help you kick start and refine your approach to delivering service -- and helps your company grow even faster.
In this webinar you'll:
* Understand what your customer wants and needs throughout the product lifecycle.
* Learn strategies for rethinking the role of customer service within the organization
* Create a new process for empowering employees to retain a top tier customer experience
* Identify potential obstacles that may be causing customer attrition
The webinar explores how the selection of a VNF manager impacts two significant challenges in deploying NFV:
1. How the use of a generic VNF manager helps ensure deployments remain open and vendor independent.
2. How managing VNF lifecycle management impacts the ability to ensure Carrier-Grade Operations.
The success of any NFV solution is how the system is managed in production after virtual function components are initially instantiated and operating. The need to manage carrier-grade production solutions across distributed systems at scale is operationally complex and particularly so when managing multi-vendor deployments. To date, VNF managers typically manage VNFs only at the virtual machine level, needing to fully stop and restart the complete virtual machine to carry out any update or upgrade procedures. Deployments that manage VNFs only at the VM level provide only infrastructure management, and they not only operate with coarse control and significant blind spots, they also make it difficult to ensure in-service upgrades, i.e., the ability to carry out updating or upgrading without impacting production traffic.
This webinar will discuss how to support efficient in-service VNF management. The VNF manager should provide VNF orchestration and management on two levels: software and infrastructure. Upgrading software and/or configurations within the existing VM instead of simply creating new VM instances greatly reduces the operational time and complexity by providing much better fine grain control and visibility over the deployed VNFs, resulting in maintenance procedures that are not only faster but also more robust and less error prone.

The popularity of the smartphone and the bring your own device (BYOD) phenomena has given way to a new era in cybercrime – the era of mobile in which cybercriminals increasingly target phones and tablets as an attack vector. In fact, at any given time, mobile malware is infecting millions and millions of mobile devices globally, enabling criminals to get their hands on your personal information and money.
2015 was witness to the largest and most notorious mobile malware attacks in history. Considering that the number of smartphone users worldwide will surpass 2 billion in 2016 (emarketer), mobile app downloads will have increased to 268 billion (Gartner) by 2017, and that most companies have dedicated very little resources towards mobile application security, the industry is ripe for even bigger malicious attacks. Mobile malware will continue to grow, being destructive and costly to corporations and users.
Join (ISC)² EMEA and IBM as we demonstrate the effects of mobile malware and how to arm organisations to protect themselves against this growing concern.
