"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN.
No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward.
Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."
"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."

Marketing is not getting more difficult because of data— it’s actually getting easier. In the old days you needed to guess who your audience was and plan in advance what you wanted to say and wait far too long to see if it worked. Those days are long gone—now you can determine EXACTLY who your audience is, deliver a relevant, personalized message in a nanosecond, and find out almost immediately whether it worked! You no longer have to live by the spray-and-pray method— you can be tactical in your delivery. Marketing today is data-driven and uses a wealth of insights and connection points to engage with consumers one to one.
Data about our customers and prospects gives us the ability to deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time. That’s audience targeting, and it’s far deeper than demo targeting, even though targeting by demo is a nice place to start. That said, the sheer volume of data and technology can be overwhelming. Cut through the noise and tackle the ba
It’s not uncommon to find slick-looking user interfaces, well-run product demos, and exciting sales narratives when evaluating a data management platform (DMP), but don’t let those features distract from the elements needed for day-to-day and long-term strategic success of a DMP.
Whether you’re looking to invest in a DMP for the first time or want to switch to a new provider, there are a few crucial factors to consider before signing on the dotted line.
Key functionality, architecture, and partnership dynamics are all important factors, but they rarely surface until your team is hands-on and using the platform. Once you dig in, it can quickly become apparent that a shiny interface and smart storytelling are a distraction from what really matters—at this point, it’s often too late.
Avoid buyer’s remorse by considering these seven facets of all DMP providers before making your decision.
If people always knew what they wanted and asked for it, your job would be easy—and boring, which really isn’t your style.
But people—and customers—are complicated, and that’s a good thing. It means that every quirk, habit, bias, behavior, curiosity, experience, and demographic detail is a chance to optimize and catapult your customer experience to new heights. But first, you have to go beyond all the details you know about your customers to discover what they mean for your business. These “customer insights” make all the difference. And this guide is a crash-course in how to catch them, decode them, and put them to work.
Let’s just get to the core of the issue: The customer experience (CX) is broken.
Legacy technology is way behind and it creates a distorted view of the customer. Though it provides behavioral, demographic, and preference data, most martech doesn’t link important data silos together to deliver the bold multichannel experience always-on customers want.
How can marketers stay competitive in a data-driven world with outdated technology behind their decision-making?
Simple. They can’t.
In order to course correct the customer experience, marketers need: • The ability to build a holistic customer view that incorporates preferences, behaviors, and personalization across multiple devices and channels • A way to manage B2B and B2C CX at every touchpoint
Can your technology do all this?
Let’s look into that.
AA Ireland specializes in home, motor, and travel insurance and provides emergency rescue for people in their homes and on the road, attending to over 140,000 car break downs every year, 80% of which are fixed on-the-spot.
“In each of the last five years, the industry lost a quarter billion in motor insurance," says Colm Carey, chief analytics officer. "So, there's a huge push for new data, models, ways to segment and pick profitable customer types—and get a lot more sophisticated. Our goal is to optimize pricing, understand the types of customers we're bringing, and the types we're trying to attract. We would like to tie that across the business. Marketing will run a campaign, trying to attract a lot of customers, but maybe they're not the right type. "We wanted to step away from industry standard software and go with something that was powerful and future-proof. In 2016, we had an opportunity to analyze all software.

A picture is worth a thousand words
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
