Safeguarding your data is more important than ever.
In today’s data-driven business landscape, companies are using their data to innovate, inform product improvements, and personalize services for their customers. The sheer volume of data collected for these purposes keeps growing, but the solutions available to organizations for processing and analyzing it become more efficient and intuitive every day. Reaching the right customers at the right time with the right offers has never been easier. With this newfound agility, however, comes new opportunities for vulnerability.
With so much riding on the integrity of your data and the services that make it secure and available, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for unexpected events that can wipe out your physical IT environment or otherwise compromise data access. The potential for natural disasters, malicious software attacks, and other unforeseen events necessitates that companies implement a robust disaster recovery (DR) strategy to

Leading companies (top 30% studied) successfully invest in cloud-based, customer-driven capabilities to support their omni-channel initiatives and strategies.
Until recently, it has been far cheaper and easier to produce and store data than to process it. Companies have the option to buy large, multi-million dollar hardware devices to process their big data, but with budgets under pressure and no clear way to calculate returns on investment, the business case is difficult to make… And when analysts explain to the CTO that they only need the hardware for six months, for one day a week, or for one hour a day, the investment becomes impossible to justify.
In this whitepaper, you’ll learn how by eliminating the traditionally high ‘cost of entry’ for big data analysis, Amazon Web Services is enabling customers to convert more raw data into more valuable business insight.
This white paper sponsored by HP and Intel (circle R) separates fact from fiction, reality from myth, and, in doing so, will aide senior IT executives as they make decisions around cloud computing.

How will the cloud transform my business? Do I have the right skill sets in place? What are some of my cost considerations? HP and Intel are committing extensive resources to helping customers with all of their questions and concerns around cloud computing.

Email is one of the most critical applications in use in business today: it is embedded in many business workflows, it is used by engineers to inform them of infrastructure issues and it is used to communicate with customers and business partners. In short, the modern organization has email at the heart of its communications and business processes. This makes it critical to minimize both the downtime and loss of email upon the outset of a business continuity event.
In today's business environment, equipping information workers with the right tools to do their jobs is a fundamental element for maintaining competitive advantage. Organizations are striving to achieve global connectivity in a dynamic environment where travel is becoming more difficult and expensive, employees are more dispersed, and business boundaries are constantly being extended. To harness the benefits of the new work order, organizations are looking to achieve true collaboration with customers, partners, suppliers and employees. Simply put, the mantra is to "improve productivity while lowering costs." Web collaboration is becoming imperative in reaching this fundamental goal by offering "anytime anywhere" communications that impacts the bottom line and improves profitability.
Providing exceptional service to more than 1,000 clients and wooing thousands of prospects was a costly endeavor for Business Fitness, a consulting firm specializing in business efficiency. The company desperately needed a cost-effective tool to help it educate, nurture and convert leads to happy customers without racking up frequent flyer miles.
As the approach to strategic business decision making becomes more and more data driven, a method for consolidating our various data sets, which are often spread across multiple systems becomes exceedingly important.
Two of the biggest players in data driven decision making are website analytics platforms and customer relationship management systems. The former includes accumulating data on top of the funnel behavior such as site traffic origins, lead generation, content consumption tracking, device usage, and overall site behavior. While the latter has a focus more on bottom of the funnel activity such as lead nurturing, customer status, lifetime value, etc.
Lastly, without communication between these two essential platforms, a complete understanding of your customers, from lead to longtime client, may never be possible. A web analytics (Google Analytics) and CRM integration provides you with a 360 degree view of your customer base, so that you can understand not just what PPC efforts

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.
At Aria Systems we spend a lot of time thinking about the ways in which our technology contributes to businesses seeking to capitalize on the ever-changing ways to engage with customers. Our collective interest in the IoT and its organic overlay with a long list of monetization models should be self-evident if you’ve been reading this Internet of Things anthology series.
As We embarked upon this e?ort it quickly became obvious that it would be a disservice to our readers not to elevate our thinking. We needed to go beyond what was strictly relevant to the IoT’s capacity for monetization and include perspectives that looked at the IoT from other angles.
