Beacons are hot. Once dismissed by many, they are now being widely deployed in retail and grocery stores, stadiums and entertainment venues. Apple’s support for Bluetooth (iBeacon) has put the technology on the map and driven its growing adoption.

While many people have read about iBeacon, they don’t clearly understand what beacons can and can’t do. Join Opus Research Senior Analyst Greg Sterling and Steve Hegenderfer, director of developer programs at Bluetooth SIG, for an informative and interactive discussion about all things beacon.

Bluetooth SIG is the group that oversees the standards and licensing of Bluetooth. We assure you Hegenderfer will speak plain English during a presentation aimed at marketers, agencies and business decision-makers.

In this accessible, non-technical session you’ll learn:

• What iBeacon is and how it fits within the larger Bluetooth landscape
• How many different types of beacons there are and who makes them
• The cost, lifespan and transmission range of beacons
• Optimal indoor beacon use cases (and things that beacons don’t do well)
• How marketers/retailers can avoid spamming consumers with beacon triggered notifications
• How indoor messaging and notifications can be personalized
• Whether beacons can equally be used for indoor marketing and analytics

  • Social media 30-minute series: Hard lessons for social advertisers Social media 30-minute series: Hard lessons for social advertisers Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: May 26 2016 33 mins
    Let’s face it. Most consumers are less likely to click on keyword searches served up by Facebook than they are to run in place to get their 10,000 steps on FitBit. Does it pay to pay for social advertising marketshare? That is the existential dilemma faced by all social media marketers.

    Take Instagram. Once upon a time, they were the darling of social advertising and engagement, but a recent report indicates a 40% drop off in the interaction rate in 2015. According to some experts, one of Instagram’s biggest changes was an increase in advertising; namely that instagram ads were pushed out to everyone around the world. Like a warning to social advertisers everywhere, the all ads all the time approach resulted in a dramatic decrease in engagement.

    With more engagement comes more responsibility and an increasingly intelligent audience will be quick to yawn and then to resent an overly aggressive advertising effort. Join us for a discussion of what went wrong and how to do social advertising right.

    In this webinar you’ll learn to avoid similar mistakes, including how to:
    * Use not abuse user engagement
    * Target and personalize ads to maximize ROI
    * Understand the difference between social advertising and advertising
    * Identify which social channels are most effective for which advertising

  • Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Dean Takahashi, Games Beat Editor, VentureBeat Recorded: May 26 2016 62 mins
    Most games need to make money. It’s a simple reality. In free-to-play games, this can be a formidable challenge when players are under no obligation to pay. Forcing players to pay is not a good plan - they’ll only leave disgruntled. The trick is to inspire player engagement, long-term retention, and multiple payments. But that’s easier said than done, right?

    We can show you how to rock a bottom line without turning off your best players, and make cash hand over fist in the process. The secret lies in data - what to measure, what to ignore, and which actions to take based on those KPIs.

    Using data has been proven to increase profits and player satisfaction. Sound too good to be true? Join the webinar and discover how data covers all bases you need for a lucrative game.

    Learn how to:
    * Target the right players, and the key engagement strategies that work
    * Maximize profits from ads and IAP, and which players are most receptive
    * Predict and measure the lifetime value of players by acquisition channel
    * Apply killer strategies, taking lessons from the most successful games
    * Unlock the lesser-known data secrets behind monetization

    Poor application performance and crashes cost millions of dollars to businesses globally. Yet, recent surveys show that only 26% of application teams will proactively examine user experience metrics in production. 72% of app teams first learn of UX issues through user complaints.

    Today’s impatient and intolerant user is quick to abandon slow performing, crashing and error prone apps. So it is up to application teams to quickly isolate issues, understand what went wrong and know how to fix it fast.

    Join us for this webinar and learn how HPE AppPulse Trace cuts through the complexity of isolating transaction performance issues. During this live webcast, user experience experts will demonstrate how to correlate performance issues from the user action to service code execution and diagnose issues down to the line of code and log messages.

    During this Webinar, you will learn how to:

    Quickly drill down to server-side transactions for rapid investigation of performance bottlenecks
    Trace transactions from the browser or mobile app all the way to the backend
    Trace all aspects of transaction execution including end-to-end flow, code timing, contextual logs, exceptions and database queries

  • A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond Recorded: May 19 2016 51 mins
    Traditional project management approaches focus on measuring performance in terms of respecting time and cost estimates. Those measures confirm performance after the fact and do not address the main driver of project success: engaged high-performing teams.

    This webinar, co-hosted by Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond, will present the link between continuously engaged teams, superior performance and successful high value project delivery, as well as explain how agile values, principles and tools can help build and develop continuously engaged, high-performing project teams.

    Charlotte and Claude will also present and demonstrate, using real project data, a simple 3-step approach, based on agile techniques and inspired by their own experiences in projects, that will help you to quickly mobilize your teams (any types of teams, project-oriented or production-oriented) and keep them engaged and high-performing.

    Those who attend the webinar will be given access to a pdf copy of the presentation slides as well as to a copy of an Excel template that can be used as a support tool to monitor and improve team engagement.
