For years, organizations have recognized that a better understanding of customers can translate to more sales, increased customer satisfaction and reduced customer churn. Initiatives focused on a 360-degree view of the customer have gone a long way toward providing those benefits by synthesizing customer profiles, sales history and other structured data from multiple sources across the enterprise.
But today, customer-centric organizations are discovering that there is more opportunity for growth when they enhance that 360-degree view with information from more sources, both within and beyond the enterprise (see Figure 1). Information in email messages, unstructured documents and social media sentiments—previously beyond reach—is now extending the 360-degree view.

Life science companies are experiencing a significant transformation in how they bring new products to market.
Organizations must adapt to changes in the marketplace, such as global product commercialization, specialized medicine, new regulations, new payment models, and new technology that are driving more product variety, smaller drug volumes, and shorter product life cycles.
To meet the needs of this new commercial model, life science companies must re-envision the global supply chain and evolve the tools they use to run their business. The supply chain that was designed for launching blockbuster products will not work in the future.
Today, the global supply chain relies on a manual, paper-based process centered on printing documents and sending them via overnight mail, fax, or e-mail with scanned attachments. This time-consuming and costly process is errorprone, tedious for customers and team members, and vulnerable to security and compliance risks.
Attracting today’s savvy candidate requires much more than a creative job description and a flattering email message. The transparency provided by web sites such as Glassdoor combined with a millennial desire for meaningful work and corporate responsibility have the upped the ante when it comes to employer brand and candidate experience. While many firms have good intentions when it comes to employer brand, these intentions aren’t always translated to action, leaving many candidates feeling frustrated as they move through the process. New hires need confirmation that everything they were told in the interview processes is not only accurate, but even better than expected. When the onboarding process falls short of those expectations, candidates immediately question their decision to accept the offer and retention efforts in jeopardy. Join this webcast to learn how to avoid costly new-hire attrition in your organization.

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
