Exceptional customer service is a competitive differentiator. Providing consistent service that is tailored to the individual across a variety of digital channels can help organizations deliver personalized experiences that exceed the expectations of today’s digital savvy consumers. Yet, many organizations fail to deliver real-time relevance in their service experiences because critical customer data is siloed in different systems (CRM, ticketing, etc.) across the enterprise, making it difficult to understand the full customer journey and their needs at that point in time.
We partnered with IDG Research to survey top-performing customer service organizations to determine the challenges they face, and, more importantly, their plans for driving better outcomes. One thing is clear: taking a strategic approach to future investments can help organizations meet their customer service objectives and deliver on customer expectations.

"It’s more important than ever for brands to have comprehensive social media technology at their disposal. Simply buying a new solution, however, is just the beginning.
Today’s brands must deploy social media software so that it allows the highest possible return on investment, empowers them to capture new opportunities, and manage the risks inherent in social media."
Today, organizations of all sizes recognize the value of an agile software delivery process. Agility is the foundation for cost–efficiency, competitiveness, high team morale and customer satisfaction.
Yet most organizations face an agility paradox in that the more agile their software delivery workflow becomes, the higher the risk that instability or unpredictability will be introduced and undercut the investment they make in software production.
Fortunately, there is a solution to this conundrum. It’s called shift–left monitoring, and it allows your company to maximize agility in software delivery without assuming undue risks. This e–book explains how you can achieve agility and stability at the same time to streamline the path to digital transformation and innovation by shifting monitoring to the left of your software delivery workflow.

Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past.

Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
