As a creative leader, your job involves a lot more than bringing concepts to life. You’ve got a team to manage, and a pile of clients to keep happy. You’ve got content to ideate, assets to build, and campaigns to manage— and it all needs to be delivered on time and on brand. Ideally, your team would concept and shoot every asset to perfectly merge imagery and message for every deliverable. But business deadlines and budgets don’t always allow time for careful creativity—and 62 percent of creative marketers say creating original imagery requires time and effort their team can’t afford.
Stock photos get a bad rap sometimes. We’ve all seen images of women inexplicably smiling at their forkfuls of salad, or an unnaturally giddy customer service representative standing by. “Some stock photography just looks like stock photography,” says May Curry, a graphic design veteran with almost 20 years of experience.1
But stock photography has always been an essential part of the designer’s toolkit. When used right, it helps brands make just the right impact. Today, collections are evolving to keep pace with visual trends and create unique, attention-grabbing images-quickly and no budget.

With more and more competition for our increasingly short attention spans, it’s no wonder we’re seeing reliance on visuals as the leading form of communication across the web.
Even the most well-thought-out ideas and well-written content will get lost in the shuffle if the visual elements aren’t equally compelling—or don’t communicate the right message. That’s why the imagery you choose should be as strategic as the written message behind it. It’s not enough to settle for the first applicable image you find in your stock library—you need to ensure every image is on brand and conveys the right idea.

Security has become top of mind for CIOs, and CEOs. Encryption at rest is a piece of the solution, but not a big piece. Encryption over the network is another piece, but only a small piece. These and other pieces do not fit together well; they need to unencrypt and reencrypt the data when they move through the layers, leaving clear versions that create complex operational issues to monitor and detect intrusion.
Larger-scale high-value applications requiring high security often use Oracle middleware, including Java and Oracle database. Traditional security models give the data to the processors to encrypt and unencrypt, often many times. The overhead is large, and as a result encryption is used sparingly on only a few applications. The risk to enterprises is that they may have created an illusion of security, which in reality is ripe for exploitation.
The modern best-practice security model is an end-to-end encryption architecture. The application deploys application-led encryption s
Databases are often the driving force behind a company’s mission critical work. They power online stores, confidential records, and customer management systems, so a solution that sustains high levels of database work can be a big advantage as your company grows.

"Every organisation already has a system of agreement. It's how written agreements get prepared, signed, enacted, and managed. But typically, it involves a messy, improvised mix of printing, signing, scanning, faxing, and overnighting paper agreements.

Everyone knows that content is crucial to attract, engage, and reach consumers. But while this may be true, it’s important to consider the medium involved. Right now, the format to beat is clearly video, with 51% of brands investing more in 2018 than the year prior.1 And with so many forms of video available, such as content, programmatic, and pre-roll, it’s important to understand how to use video for building both brand connections and direct response.
Currently, video provides advertisers with a versatile medium to
reach the audiences they want, where they want, to put the best
spotlight on their story. But the question remains—what is the
best way to reach your target, and how can you ensure they will
pay attention to your message? Download this whitepaper to find out!

Can your business afford to lose $9,000 per minute?
According to the Ponemon Institute $9,000 is the average cost of an unplanned outage. In some cases the costs are much higher. The catalogue of cloud outages over recent years is well publicized and reads like a “who’s who” of the technology industry. It seems no one is immune.
But when it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs).
