Although valuable, in limiting their thinking to these segmentation strategies, organizations are missing opportunities, as some of the most innovative and significant customer experiences are driven by other types of customer analysis. Based on over a hundred different examples of customer analysis, Thu, 01 Sep 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3408418 Gartner Webinars What Big Data Means Today and How to Position Effectively EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Gartner's original prediction that the term "Big Data" would become meaningless by 2020 was actually a bit off its largely useless already for differentiating products and solutions in most areas today, and customers are hearing identical terminology with little meaning or differentiation from most vendors in the space.

We are seeing a significant shift from owning and running business application software to consuming and using business application services.

Bimodal will enable businesses to transition from bloated application portfolios toward a lower-cost and more agile state without the high risks associated with "big bang" replacement of major parts of their portfolios. Thu, 15 Sep 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3404517 Gartner Webinars Do Midsize Organizations Need a Data Warehouse? EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 One of the most pressing decisions facing midmarket IT leaders is whether they need to build a data warehouse. Midsize organizations have heard the horror stories about how hard and costly it can be to build a data warehouse. And then there is no guarantee it will be successfully adopted by users.

In fact, a recent Gartner survey found that unclear business benefits is the top barrier to IoT efforts overall. In addition, since IoT is not a singular technology per se, but rather a general wave of technology, the opportunities to create value can vary considerably across industries, as well as between functional areas within an organization. Clearly, there is a pressing need for an overarching business benefits framework that planners can use to identify where and how IoT can deliver business value, and to define and organize IoT initiatives.

In this webinar we outline the idea of proactive "security Culture management" an approach that contains aspects of security awareness, behavioral training/conditioning, marketing/messaging, systems of reinforcement, technology based guardrails, and more.
