Achieving long-term profitability for 5G will require a major shift in thinking for many operators. Given the investments and capacity upgrades involved, simply treating 5G as just “another G” is a doomed strategy. Instead, 5G must be seen as an opportunity to re-energize the Telco business model and to move away from traditional commoditized network offerings.

As marketers chase after the same people with the same tactics, traditional marketing has become less worth the time—and the money.
Email outreach worked until spam clogged up inboxes. Content marketing worked until everybody started to put out sub-standard material. And search engine marketing worked until it became inundated with new players clamoring for attention. Even inbound tactics aren’t delivering the results they once did.
And as the need for performance continues to climb, so does the status of account-based marketing (ABM). In the B2B sphere it’s on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

The traditional payer business model is fast becoming obsolete. Blues organizations that cling to the status quo or business as usual risk jeopardizing their reputations and business, because people are more than patients.
Increasingly, employers are driving the growing demand for more solutions to engage customers. In response, healthcare incumbents and new entrants are building solutions to address rising costs and meet consumers’ demands for personalization, price transparency, access, and seamless, simple experiences.
Proactive engagement can help your members lead healthier lives while improving outcomes for payers and other players. With 5% of Americans consuming 50% of healthcare costs, identifying and engaging high-risk, high-cost customer segments is essential to sustainability.

But in the case of dashboards, pictures can quickly translate into thousands of dollars. Information is arguably better absorbed through vivid visualizations as opposed to monotonous grids, as visualizations can address the scope and dimensions of underlying
data in a succinct and digestible format.
Businesses today rely on a myriad of charts and graphs that go beyond the traditional bars, pies, and gauges to convey information. Modern visualizations have pushed analytics to new levels, and organizations can publish information in unique, highly visual representations. Open source libraries including D3, Google Charts, and Highcharts have presented creative options for business analysts wanting to design intuitive dashboards that convey complex information effectively to enable quick decision making.
If the charts and graphs you currently use aren’t cutting it, here are seven visualizations that can bring new meaning
and purpose to your dashboards
Today, most students in primary and secondary schools have never experienced life
without the internet or smartphones. This reality is reflected in the classroom where
digital learning processes and experiences are enhancing traditional textbooks and
upending conventional classroom teaching methods. Online lessons, testing and
assessments are now part of most curricula. Laptops, tablets and smartphones have
become primary instruction tools for students, who are downloading an increasing
number of online apps to enhance their digital learning experience.
Teachers and lecturers alike rely on robust, reliable Wi-Fi across their campus to
access the full range of teaching tools available to them.

The digitalization of business processes and the advent of mobile computing have given rise to the next generation of fraud. Cybercriminals have a variety of tools and techniques—as well as opportunities—to steal money and services. Furthermore, traditional fraud prevention tools often fail to stop this fraudulent activity.
Companies need a new approach to fraud prevention—one that stops fraud early and preserves the user experience. Companies with an online presence must have the ability to:
Detect and respond to fraudulent activity before incurring losses
Leverage human insight and machine learning to identify advanced fraud
Work with other fraud analysts to identify larger fraud trends and stop cybercriminals on a global scale
Block more fraud while reducing fraud prevention costs
This book explores how companies can leverage a next-generation fraud prevention solution to stop more fraud while reducing costs and providing a positive user experience for trusted customers.

CEOs seeking to disrupt their sector rather than be disrupted, are turning to Agile development methods in order to accelerate development and rapidly adapt to changes in business requirements. Agile development is a group of methodologies, utilising incremental, iterative work sequences or sprints delivered by cross-functional teams and represents a fundamentally different way of working from traditional waterfall development. One of the major barriers to successful adoption of Agile ways of working, is a lack of industry consensus on how to successfully contract for Agile. The traditional Time & Materials approach is slow, and can obstruct collaboration. This paper discusses the alternative models for sourcing Agile and gives recommendations that benefit both customer and suppliers.

Research suggests that up to half of the investment your organization is making in Learning & Development (L&D) is being wasted. Employees unfortunately lose up to 75% of the information they receive through traditional L&D approaches (including learning management systems, episodic trainings, and workshops) — an effect known as the training transfer problem.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers scalable, cost-efficient cloud services that public sector customers can use to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and accelerate innovation. The procurement of an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud is unlike traditional technology purchasing. Traditional public sector procurement and contracting approaches that are designed to purchase products, such as hardware and related software, can be inconsistent with cloud services (like IaaS). A failure to modernize contracting and procurement approaches can reduce the pool of competitors and inhibit customer ability to adopt and leverage cloud technology.
