Note: Part two of Karen Walker’s blog series continues her insights about Digital Transformation and spotlights how Cisco’s Marketing and Communications team is using technology to transform their function.
Excerpt: Today’s marketers are delivering more and more content digitally, but to be effective that digital content can’t just be generic reference material. Rather, effective content must be relevant, timely, and personalized. And its goal should be to create a dialogue with the customer.
This is no easy task. It requires investing in marketing technologies that help deliver personalized content with speed and agility. For modern marketers, technology opens the door to new revenue pipelines. Digital platforms and applications combined with data and analytics augment our go-to-market model.
In the 26-criteria evaluation of continuous delivery and release automation (CDRA) providers, we identified the 15 most significant — Atlassian, CA technologies, Chef Software, Clarive, CloudBees, electric Cloud, Flexagon, Hewlett packard enterprise (Hpe), IBM, Micro Focus, Microsoft, puppet, Red Hat, VMware, and Xebialabs — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. We focused on core features, including modeling, deploying, managing, governing, and visualizing pipelines, and on each vendor’s ability to match a strategy to these features. this report helps infrastructure and operations (I&o) professionals make the right choice when looking for CDRA solutions for their development and operations (Devops) automation.
One of the agency biggest challenges is juggling multiple projects across departments while retaining complete visibility into finances, pipelines and resources management. Most agencies use multiple systems to handle each of these processes. According to The Drum Lab rats, to have “one integrated and user-friendly connected system would be the ideal solution.”
Five leading agencies tested the WorkBook Agency Management system in a recent Drums Labs workshop. Testers quickly discovered the wealth of functionality, the high level of usability and the full integration that WorkBook provides to agency businesses.

This whitepaper explores how to automate your data lake pipeline to address common challenges including how to prevent data lakes from devolving into useless data swamps and how to deliver analytics-ready data via automation.
Read Increase Data Lake ROI with Streaming Data Pipelines to learn about:
• Common data lake origins and challenges including integrating diverse data from multiple data source platforms, including lakes on premises and in the cloud.
• Delivering real-time integration, with change data capture (CDC) technology that integrates live transactions with the data lake.
• Rethinking the data lake with multi-stage methodology, continuous data ingestion and merging processes that assemble a historical data store.
• Leveraging a scalable and autonomous streaming data pipeline to deliver analytics-ready data sets for better business insights.
Read this Attunity whitepaper now to get ahead on your data lake strategy in 2019.
Data is the fuel driving rapid innovation powered by artifi cial intelligence. Enterprises
need modern data platform purpose-built for machine learning, accelerating insight while
simplifying complex data pipelines in analytics.
This paper discusses advanced technologies and tools that enable greater pipeline integrity, particularly computational pipeline monitoring (CPM) methodologies as a means to identify anomalies that signal a possible commodity pipeline release.
This paper discusses how an automated system helps pipeline operators comply with new federal regulations by safely reducing demands placed on controllers and the fatigue often associated with their tasks.
Modern business-to-business (B2B) buyers have unprecedented access to information to support their buying process and, as a result, have become more self-reliant in the evaluation process. This has made B2B sellers’ jobs harder; not only do they have less control in earlier stages of the sales cycle, but they have to work harder to connect and engage with buyers, turning prospects into customers. Sales technologies have helped modernize how sellers and sales leaders manage their pipelines and execute contracts, but technology gaps around engagement persist, making it difficult for sellers to keep pace with, connect with, and support buyer engagement. The common outcome: Sellers become slaves to their CRM systems, focused more on updating reports and logging their activities than they are in driving business results.
