Something odd happened during Selectica’s roll-up strategy. Usually when a technology vendor acquires a number of providers at relatively low valuations, its focus tends to be on financially engineering the various SaaS, maintenance, upsell and other income schemes from the assets. But in Selectica’s case, the acquired became the basis of the company, in a manner in which the sum of the assets became an entirely different equation that it likely even bargained for before getting into the activity in the first place. But sometimes the uncertainty of post-merger integrations can lead to an outcome that benefits all parties involved (including customers) in ways that would be difficult to have imagined going into the process.

This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS
and Android. While Android has higher consumer market
share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise,
accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1
2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1
The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive
its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely
from security trends observed in the consumer space.
Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81%
global market share2
, predictably invites more broad-based
attacks than iOS.
When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise,
however, both need threat protection because at a
fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar
vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be
relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and
can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS
app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and

Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting
individuals and businesses.
Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually. According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands.
No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.

Wie es so schön heißt: Wer nicht wagt, der nicht gewinnt. Heute stehen Verbraucher über mehr Kanäle als je zuvor mit Einzelhändlern und Marken in Kontakt. Für Retailer bedeutet dies enorme Chancen, neue Zielgruppen zu erreichen, den Umsatz zu steigern und Kunden langfristig zu binden. Die kanalübergreifende Interaktion mit Verbrauchern ist aber auch mit höheren Risiken verbunden. Kunden erwarten, dass Unternehmen vom ersten Kontakt bis zum eigentlichen Kauf ein nahtloses, angenehmes Erlebnis bieten – gleichgültig, welchen Kanal sie nutzen und wie sie mit der Marke interagieren: in einem Laden, auf der Website, über die Mobil-App, mit dem Call Center oder sogar mit dem Katalog. Wenn etwas nicht so läuft, wie der Kunde es sich vorstellt, so wird er dieselben Kanäle nutzen, um seinem Unmut Luft zu machen und um Hilfe zu bitten.

HVAC concerns in an industrial facility like a warehouse or manufacturing plant can be complicated. Not only are these spaces usually larger than traditional commercial areas, but they often have equipment or products that need to maintain a specific temperature. MacroAir’s large industrial ceiling fans provide optimal airflow for industrial facilities and are an affordable alternative to HVAC systems.
MacroAir’s big industrial fans deliver a cooling effect for occupants, help control the effects of humidity, and can also help conserve heat in colder months by pushing warm air that is trapped at the ceiling toward the walls and down to the floor at occupant level.
MacroAir’s big ceiling fans provide an efficient airflow solution and a sustainable alternative to relying on HVAC alone to cool large spaces.

There’s an alarming digital divide within many companies. Marketers are developing nimble software to give customers an engaging, personalized experience, while IT departments remain focused on the legacy infrastructure. The front and back ends aren’t working together, resulting in appealing websites and apps that don’t quite deliver.
We’ve arrived at this misalignment for understandable reasons. Previously, most chief information officers (CIOs) were hired to digitize and bring order to companies’ internal systems and processes. They saw websites as marketing channels and were happy to let chief marketing officers (CMOs) oversee that province of technology. They had, and still have, plenty to do just to keep internal operations running smoothly. Marketers soon got into the habit of developing not just content, but also software programs to better reach and transact with customers. But now that websites and apps are becoming cornerstones of the business, the stakes are too high to al
There’s no denying the effect digital has on the retail industry.
$.56 of every $1 spent in physical stores is influenced by digital.
What’s more, three of the world’s top five retailers are internetfirst:
Amazon, Alibaba, and JD.com.
According to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Total Retail 2017 report,
56% of global shoppers use Amazon. Of these, 28% say they shop
less often at retail stores because of Amazon. 18% say they shop
less on other retailers’ e-commerce sites because of Amazon. And
10% say they shop exclusively on Amazon.
Retailers need to find a way to compete in this changing retail
landscape. These five global trends can provide some guidance
on where retail is headed and how brands can thrive in this new
era of retail.
study by UPS and comScore found that 53% of shoppers who don’t use
retailers’ mobile apps state it’s because they like using the website better.
These shoppers see no benefit from installing these apps, as they provide
an inferior experience with no added benefits. Looking at the Apple and
Google Play App Stores, a large amount of retailers have apps with very
few reviews, and some don’t even have a mobile app.
Another problem is the performance of retail apps. 61% consumers expect
an app to load in under 4 seconds according to research by Dynatrace. In
its study, only one retailer made it under that threshold.
And that is just purely opening the app. What is the
experience once consumers get past that point?
