The one thing these powerful brands have in common? Data. The growth of data has brought us to the tipping point between brand and customer. Before the digital age, the biggest and best brands had just that – a brand, which THEY controlled. Now, a brand is powerful because of the data it collects and how it uses it to serve its customers. The value of data is only going to increase as we move from a handful of brands owning first-party data to a greater democratization of information. As a result, consumers will have much more control over their personal data and more companies will be able to generate their own first-party data. Once again, it’s time to look ahead to identify the trends and technologies that are most likely to survive the hype cycle and become the must-haves of the near future. Here we take all we learned over the past year and craft our strategies for the future. We explore the five predictions we believe marketers should be excited about and prepare for over the ne
LOOK TO RELEVANT USE CASES FOR YOUR BUSINESS. While use cases vary across industries, the most common ones fall into these categories and are usually associated with the listed neural network:
• Image classification or object detection: convolutional neural network (CNN) • Time-series predictions: long short-term memory (LSTM) • Natural language processing: recurrent neural network (RNN) • Unlabeled data classification and data labeling: autoencoder (AE) • Anomaly detection: autoencoder (AE) • Recommender systems: multilayer perceptron (MLP)
Work with your deep learning talent or consultants to identify which use cases best match your organization and desired solutions. Then recreate a successful, already proven method.
According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.
Customers and business leaders alike demand a great deal of contact centers which cannot easily be met using the simplistic approaches used to develop early, isolated contact centers. In order to provide a top-shelf customer experience, contact centers must adopt sophisticated processes which can evaluate and route calls quickly and effectively to the right agent, and which schedule agents based on their abilities as well as predicted call demand.

Recent Gartner research indicates that roughly half of U.S. businesses currently have or are considering adopting a recurring revenue model. If you’re reading this paper, then chances are that half includes you. Gartner estimates the revenue opportunity at greater than $300 billion per year and growing. Even a small piece of that pie would look good on your bottom line.
This growing trend toward recurring revenue monetization strategies presents both opportunities and challenges for your company. Opportunities include reaching new customers and markets, and creating reliable and predictable revenue streams.

In the age of Edward Snowden and the NSA, there are increasing concerns about data privacy and especially where best to keep data secure. The prevalence of cloud computing and cloud-based storage and collaboration services is only exacerbating these concerns. Many organizations are confused about regulations that protect data in different countries and jurisdictions, and don’t know what steps to take to ensure their cloud collaboration vendor can provide adequate safeguards.
While pushback and reform efforts are evolving, the reality is that companies must operate within the law. Deciding where to house your data and how to move it is an exercise in understanding the relevant legal regimes and the application of risk analysis in the decision making process. This white paper will examine those elements with regard to cloud-based storage and processing.

Creating a data-driven, intelligent sales and marketing system is both today’s challenge and tomorrow’s imperative. Marketers can no longer live by “I think, I feel” and sales can no longer manage by “gut instinct.”
Data is the new power currency in sales and marketing, and this is especially true if you want to succeed in an account-based marketing approach. Begin with the end in mind, use data and predictive intelligence to discover and target accounts and decision makers, create targeted content, select channels, deliver an omni-channel experience and measure results.
This ebook will cover seven steps that every account-based marketer and seller should follow to create a successful process for ABM.
The 21st century marks the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities for mass consumption. A staggering surge of machine learning has been applied for myriad of uses — from self-driving cars to curing cancer. AI and machine learning have only recently entered the world of cybersecurity, but it’s occurring just in time. According to Gartner Research, the total market for all security will surpass $100B in 2019. Companies are looking to spend on innovation to secure against cyberthreats. As a result, more tech startups today tout AI to secure funding; and more established vendors now claim to embed machine learning in their products. Yet, the hype around AI and machine learning — what they are and how they work — has created confusion in the marketplace. How do you make sense of the claims? Can you test for yourself to know the truth? Cylance leads the cybersecurity world of AI. The company spearheaded an innovation revolution by replacing legacy antivirus software with predictive, preventative solutions and services that protect the endpoint — and the organization. Cylance stops zero-day threats and the most sophisticated known and unknown attacks. Read more in this analytical white paper.

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. An appropriate specification for cooling IT wiring closets should assure compatibility with anticipated loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, maximize electrical efficiency, and be flexible enough to work in various shapes and types of closets. This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.

States, counties and municipalities have historically relied on local brick-and-mortar businesses to collect retail sales taxes. These businesses collected the sales tax from their customers, and then remitted the tax proceeds to their local sales tax jurisdiction. It was a straightforward process, and no one much quarreled with who owed the taxes and who would receive them.
That straightforward proposition became complex with the rise of thousands of catalog merchants in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Catalog merchants sold to consumers nationwide, who began to shift their purchases away from local brick-and-mortar merchants. This reduced revenue to local sales tax jurisdictions because catalog companies rarely collected sales taxes from their customers.

Located on the Aleutian Chain, approximately 800 air miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, Unalaska is home to 4,000 permanent residents and boasts the U.S’s most productive commercial fishing port of Dutch Harbor, which is also well-known as the home of successful TV show “The Deadliest Catch”.
Accessible only by airplane or boat, there are no roads to Unalaska. The deep water and ice-free International Port of Dutch Harbor serves cargo ships and large container vessels throughout the year, making this port one of the busiest transportation hubs in t
User adoption has always been something of an issue. Despite having ready access to SharePoint, many users cling to their file-shares, or more recently, adopt other ways of collaborating and sharing documents via web-based services. A third of the organizations surveyed feel that their SharePoint project has struggled to meet their original expectations, and a further 26% feel progress has stalled. Is this because of poor training and governance, restricted functionality of SharePoint, or simply the inevitable result of being the first ECM system to move beyond the safer boundaries of compliance-based aoperations? As we will see in this report, it is likely to be a combination of all of these.
