EXPECTATIONS FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
CONTINUE TO RISE AROUND THE GLOBE
Customers expect more from brands when it comes to convenience,
resolution times, and agent expertise. Evolving customer preferences
are tightly linked to innovations in digital technology, and brands must
embrace both in order to keep pace with heightened expectations. The
good news is that brands that can deliver on expectations are rewarded
with higher rates of customer retention and loyalty.
The Microsoft 2017 State of Global Customer Service survey polled
5,000 people from Brazil, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and
the United States. We continue to find commonalities along with distinct
differences between locals. And though people in all age groups are
embracing new digital trends, millennials especially are shaping the way
brands need to think about the future of customer service engagement.
Regardless of industry, service organizations are a customer engagement
focal point for brands around the world. Our r

This paper considers how Web-based security threats are evolving, within the context of IT trends including mobile, home computing and other forms of remote access that could all potentially increase the attack surface of the organization.
There are a number of factors contributing to the growing popularity of streaming live events or offering content on demand, from anywhere, any time, on any device. Live streaming major sporting events such as the Superbowl or the Olympics is now a viable alternative to broadcast TV. And as Limelight’s 2017 State of Online Video report reveals, the average number of online viewing hours is almost six per week. However, as viewer expectations continue to rise, keeping audiences happy and engaged isn’t easy.
In this white paper we discuss current trends and what to expect in 2018. We examine the role Content Delivery Networks (CDN) can play in optimizing the delivery of online video content at global scale, and the technologies available to ensure the lowest latency delivery possible.
Why sports leagues are enthusiastic about live streaming their events
How content distributers can differentiate their services

In this white paper, we recap notable trends and events in information security from 2014 and look forward to what information security professionals should expect in 2015. The past year was a landmark one in the information security field, with massive data breaches capturing the public’s attention, powerful bugs causing headaches for IT teams and end users, DDoS attacks breaking records, and phishing remaining a general annoyance – or worse – for all Internet users. In this whitepaper, we discuss these trends as well as key areas of concern for 2015, including:
- The impact of the Internet of Things
- The growing importance of threat intelligence
- The increasing influence of BRICS nations
- The evolution of encryption standards
- The changing role of the CISO
In this white paper, we examine notable trends and events in physical security from 2014 and assess what security professionals should expect in 2015. 2014 was truly an unpredictable year in the physical security and executive
protection worlds, as large scale events targeted for disruption were executed relatively smoothly, while unforeseen developments in Ukraine and the Ebola outbreak caught many off guard.
Looking ahead to 2015, we predict that local issues will continue to gain global importance, threat actors and activists will find new ways to utilize social media to spread their messages, and the lines between physical and digital threats will continue to converge. We also highlight ongoing developments in France,
Mexico, Ukraine, and Germany.
