It’s become abundantly clear that the cloud is no longer the future— but the new normal. Enterprises rely on cloud computing for web-based meetings, email, file sharing, and more every day to reduce costs and administrative burdens while enhancing productivity.
With the wealth of benefits to be gained by moving to the cloud—including speed of deployment, cost-efficiencies, and easy scaling—it’s no wonder the shift toward all things virtual has been so pervasive and swift. What’s more, as the cloud has matured, the potential drawbacks that once made enterprises hesitant to make the move are disappearing. Security is now robust, application integration happens with ease, and reliability is a given, not a question mark.
So now that the cloud has become not just viable, but essential, to stay competitive in a rapidly changing world, it’s time to explore how the cloud can significantly improve your contact center operations and guest experiences. This paper will provide one compelling r
Like the oxygen we breathe, journey analytics brings life to the customer behind those devices, over time getting to know their favorite pastry choice, when they’re most likely to buy gas, and how long they stay online while in the station’s café.
If you want your customers to enjoy seamless, personalized experiences, you need to treat them like people. That means marketing to the person — not the device. When you know a customer’s interests, wants, and needs — perhaps even before they do — you’ve succeeded at becoming a true experience business. For some, this may require a shift from analytics as a tool to analytics as a way of life. It may also mean evolving corporate or office culture.
As modernized data centers scale up and out, there is a strong potential for growing complexity as well. IT teams need to be vigilant in simplifying architectures and operations as the technological landscape changes.
While the potential of monitoring and analytics in your data center is huge, to take advantage, you'll need an architecture that can handle shifting traffic patterns.
In this expert eGuide, you'll discover three ways of simplifying architectures, and how they can help you reduce complexity, improve workforce efficiency, and ease administration.

Digital transformation has arrived, and it’s creating unprecedented opportunities for companies of all sizes to become market leaders through the evolution of business processes and the creation of new products and services. Organizations that master digital transformation will see a dramatic increase in revenues and profitability by converging people, processes and technologies; those that do not will struggle to survive. Evidence of this is clear to see by looking at the churn in the biggest
companies in the world. For example, a Capgemini study found that since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 has disappeared through acquisitions or bankruptcies. The study also found that digital organizations control 70% of market share in all industries today. Therefore, making the shift to a digital business must be a top initiative for IT and business leaders.
