The software as a service (SaaS) model of application delivery, more commonly known as ‘cloud deployment’, in which software features are accessed through a Web browser, is an excellent way for manufacturing companies to get the bene?ts of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems without the need to build additional IT infrastructure. ERP functionality delivered “from the cloud” avoids the complexity and costs that often accompany on premisess ERP implementations, and typically provides a much more favorable total cost of ownership, compared to legacy on premisess deployment. Companies subscribe to the software features that they need and can add new ones as business requirements change, without buying additional servers or storage to support new functionality. The ERP features are the same as for an on premises ERP system, except that it is hosted and maintained on the Cloud provider’s infrastructure.

Millennials are different than any other generation before them. They are making major decisions later in life—from choosing a career, getting married, buying a home and yes, investing in life insurance.

Insurance and financial companies need to understand the unique dynamics of the millennial generation in order to better service and exceed expectations of this growing consumer base. They need to meet their tech-savvy expectations, while also understanding Millennials still value one-to-one attention. In fact, 48% of Millennials said they would be more likely to make a speedy financial or insurance-related decision if a person who they trusted took the time to explain the benefits and risks. Download this whitepaper and learn how to better tap into the growing millennial market.

Lead scoring is an objective ranking of one sales lead against another. This not only helps align the right follow-up to the corresponding inquiry, it also helps marketing and sales professionals identify where each prospect is in the buying process.

After all, by jointly establishing an objective definition of a quality lead, sales and marketing can exchange better feedback on the quality of leads being passed to sales. Plus, lead scoring helps ensure that the best leads are followed up on immediately by prioritizing leads according to revenue potential and buyer readiness.

One of the most important questions a company can ask itself is “what is our differentiation?” The reason is simple: it’s how you define yourself in the minds of your customers and beat the competition. Beyond that, it’s what guides business strategy as you face decisions and choices on a daily basis. A company that knows who it is and how it adds value for customers and prospects has a solid foundation for making those decisions. One that has an unclear position or, worse yet, constantly shifts position, has a difficult path in a challenging market. That’s why branding discussions need to go well beyond graphics and touch on the values and identity that are at the core of any successful company.

Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now. Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data can now be processed in memory, and more significantly, analyzed as it arrives, in real time. Millions to hundreds of millions of events (such as video streams or application alerts) can be collected and analyzed per hour to deliver insights that can be acted upon in an instant. From financial services to manufacturing, this rev
