We will cover how the combination of data, strategy, and automation will generate more sales, deliver the right offers to the right customer, and increase customer cart size.


Automated Non regression Testing Solution for SAP BusinessObjects

Automated Non regression Testing Solution for SAP BusinessObjects

You've developed and come to rely on SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence reports. Some are simply to manage your business processes, some are ad-hoc in nature, and some are federally regulated reports. When changes are made to a production environment (i.e. Universes are modified or you've migrated from one version to another) how do you ensure that all your reports still "run as expected" and provide the same results? Often times this is done manually by having testers open up reports side by side from both systems and comparing them. Back in the day I used to hold up copies of the report (on top of one another) against a window to spot the differences. We didn't have much choice and these techniques are prone to error (and take a huge amount of time).

In this webinar we are going to show you how to take the "manual" out of regression testing your Web Intelligence reports with GB&Smith's 360Bind. 360Bind lets the computer do the work; perfect comparisons and highly effective (imagine, verify all your reports, not just some)!

We will also discuss:

  • The challenge of manual regression testing
  • The benefits of using 360Bind
  • Review 360Bind use cases
  • And demonstrate key features

Solving Common B2B e-Commerce SEO Challenges

Solving Common B2B e-Commerce SEO Challenges

The biggest problem and biggest opportunity your business has today is that B2B buyers expect you to make shopping easy for them, they expect a B2B shopping experience as accessible as their B2C shopping experiences are. B2B brands have to rise to that challenge by delivering search optimized shopping journeys that match those the B2C space offers. That isn't bad news. B2B organizations typically know more about their consumers than B2C concerns, which means it's easier for them to a) infer intent from search phrases or on page behavior and b) deliver the relevant content higher search rankings are increasingly dependent on. 
Higher rankings in the B2B market space can actually be achieved using certain B2C SEO tactics. In fact, there are at least three commonly overlooked tactics that if correctly deployed can elevate your search results. Not surprisingly, each of these factors is rooted in B2C marketing tactics but customized for a B2B audience. 
Nail B2B e-Commerce SEO with … 
 Digital Asset Optimization 
 Social Media Optimization 
 Rich Snippets and Structured Markup 
During this webinar we'll introduce you to the applicability of SEO to B2B e-commerce concerns and demonstrate how by incorporate the above tactics into your marketing plan you can surpass even your strongest competitors.

Azure Data Platform Series 2: A Data Lake is not just another Data Warehouse

Lately you have been hearing about Data Lakes.  Some say the Data Lake is the reincarnation of the data warehouse. Others say the Data Lake is an improvement on the Data Warehouse. Others say it is not a Data Lake at all, it's a Data Swamp!

How to get the most from your SEO Audit

How to get the most from your SEO Audit

Having an SEO professional audit your website from time to time isn't something you should do. It's something you need to do. You already know that building and maintaining a robust online presence is important, that's why you've devoted so much time and energy to developing your website, but having a working website isn't necessarily synonymous with having robust presence online. You can have a website that's perfectly functional in a wide variety of critically important ways and still have one desperately in need of a few search visibility focused updates. You may not need a full blown search engine optimization strategy, but then again you may; and the best way to find out is by having a professional do an SEO audit. 

Join us and we'll walk you through … 

  • How an SEO Audit Will Help Your Business 
  • What You'll Get in Your SEO Audit 
  • How to Put Your Completed SEO Audit to Use 
Getting an SEO audit of your site could reveal harsh truths or simply strengths you'll want to build on. During this webinar we'll discuss how having an SEO audit performed on your site can offer you insights you've never thought to look for. 

Data Lakes and your Enterprise Data Warehouse

Data Lakes and your Enterprise Data Warehouse

Are you confounded by the term "Data Lake"? With all of the technology buzzwords flying around today, it can become a task to keep up with and clearly understand each of them. However a data lake is definitely something to dedicate the time to understand. 

Leveraging data lake technology, companies are finally able to keep all of their disparate information and streams of data in one secure location ready for consumption at any time – this includes structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data. 

Come, join us to learn what this technology means for your Enterprise Data Warehouse. This webinar will discuss: 

-What is the difference between a data lake and a data warehouse? 

-Does a data lake replace my data warehouse? 

-Best Practices for building and managing a data lake

Data Lakes: Getting Business Users the Data they Need

Data Lakes: Getting Business Users the Data they Need

The Data Lake is more a concept than a technology. Taking technology out of the discussion, the data lake is a repository of just-in-time, real time and historical data that is available to business users that needs it. Why do we need this? Because in order to survive (let alone, excel), an organization needs access to information so that it can measure progress, plan for growth, and react to its environment. With data residing in POS systems, operational data stores, data warehouses, social streams, on the internet and in sensors how can anyone hope to have access to what they need? 

That's where the data lake comes in. In order to meet business demands, the data lake must: 

- Capture data from a wide range of sources 

- Allow for structured, semi-structured and unstructured data (video, IoT, social streams, etc) 

- Allow access to all this information in one place by the persons that need it 

- Allow for the use of advanced algorithms for data mining, pattern matching and predictive modeling 

- Support the enterprise data warehouse (where highly processed information lives) 

- Support data driven applications 


In this presentation we will discuss how the data lake is an integral part of your data eco-system and how it helps to address the many challenges that an organization faces when trying to satisfy the voracious appetite of its many user personas.


Are you achieving an optimal Liferay digital experience?

Are you achieving an optimal Liferay digital experience?

To survive in the digital eco-system with competitors today it is crucial to have a great digital experience on your Liferay portal. After all of the time and energy of creating a beautiful and streamlined portal – how do KNOW that your consumers are actually having the experience you tried to create? Are page load speeds satisfactory? Are there page errors? Having trouble in mobile view? In most cases, if your consumers aren't able to have a successful experience on your site they will leave in silence and not come back…but even worse, they can leave poor reviews and feedback that certainly travels.

The new Liferay digital experience isn't all about the pages created and the content delivered – it's about the entire journey through the site from start to finish. With Dynatrace's Application Performance Monitoring capability, you are now able to have a singular view of all portal activity including that of third party vendors - to make sure you are delivering the optimal digital experience.

In this webinar we will discuss:

- How to monitor and track your customer journey and to provide insights in real time

- Understand customer experiences, conversion rates and problems that affect brand value across digital channels

- How immediately isolating performance problems to the correct layer by tracking user visits across back-end tiers


Driving Advanced Marketing with Predictive Analytics

Driving Advanced Marketing with Predictive Analytics

Marketers need data to successfully execute marketing initiatives. Luckily, having enough data is no longer an issue. Organizations have more data than ever before, and given the latest trends, have more data than they may be able to handle! Effectively using all this information makes the difference between "getting the same results as before" or "crushing past performance". Leveraging modern Predictive Analytics technology will ensure the latter.

In this webinar we will demonstrate how a marketer (not a data scientist) can use SAP's Predictive Analytics to maximize the effectiveness of their campaign. We will follow the approaches of three marketers in a hypothetical company called Acme Lawn Services and see who made the most of the information available to them!

In this webinar you will discover how:

- How marketers can leverage the masses of data gathered from all sources

- Predictive Analytics can triple company profit

- Marketers are able to employ advanced predictive analytics without the need of a data scientist
