Organizations need to accelerate the pace with which they realize business value from data. The focus is on improving “time to value,” which is the length of time it takes from the beginning of a project to the delivery of anticipated business value.
This TDWI Best Practices Report focuses on realizing value from BI and analytics and how organizations can accelerate the path to higher value. The report looks at multiple factors impacting the ability of organizations to quickly derive greater value from data and analytics, including the organizational issues, practices, and development methods that are often just as important as keeping pace with technological innovation.
In many ways, today’s web marketers are like blindfolded shopkeepers. They might have a general understanding of their customers’ needs, based on site analytics and other data sources, but they do not see what their actual customers are doing across channels. Hence, they miss numerous sales and marketing opportunities—online and off.
Whether your shop is real, virtual, or a combination of the two,
the more complete your customer vision, the greater the value
you can provide to them and the greater value they will deliver
to your bottom line.

While vulnerability assessments are an essential part of understanding your risk profile, it's simply not realistic to expect to eliminate all vulnerabilities from your environment. So, when your scan produces a long list of vulnerabilities, how do you prioritize which ones to remediate first? By data criticality? CVSS score? Asset value? Patch availability? Without understanding the context of the vulnerable systems on your network, you may waste time checking things off the list without really improving security.
Join AlienVault for this session to learn:
• The pros & cons of different types of vulnerability scans - passive, active, authenticated, unauthenticated
• Vulnerability scores and how to interpret them
• Best practices for prioritizing vulnerability remediation
• How threat intelligence can help you pinpoint the vulnerabilities that matter most

Virtually all organizations are realizing the importance of customer engagement. But in order to benefit, we must subscribe to the idea that consumers really can add value to our organization. And sometimes, that means removing the notion that we are the experts in exchange for the belief that we can learn a thing or two from our customers. The collective intelligence of the communities we serve is largely an untapped asset - a stream of valuable input that can help improve the decisions we make and shape the products we sell. This book explores the value of many - and the role that customer engagement will play in shaping the future of our businesses, our government, and our economy.
