The success of every business is driven by the quality of its connections, whether with clients, employees, investors, suppliers, manufacturers or other key stakeholders. Increasingly, these relationships are measured through data-driven analytics, enhanced through video communication, and empowered through cloud computing and collaboration. As the volume of data grows, so do bandwidth requirements.
We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we’re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world’s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records.
These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company’s website was forced offline.

Strategically deploying telemarketing to enhance engagement, nurture prospects
and improve your data can make the difference between revenue that goes to
your bottom line and revenue that goes out the door.

Today’s marketers are leveraging technology and data to drive decision making: demand gen, marketing communications, and other disciplines can strongly demonstrate their value with metrics that summarize tangible bottomline impact on the business. That hasn’t been true for PR. In PR, we’re still tied to legacy metrics that are more about counting mentions and ‘clips’ than about measuring business impact.

If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
