Research shows that today’s in-store purchases tend to begin and end online. Even ready-tobuy consumers research online for nearby stores, go in-store to buy, and often leave a review about their experience. In turn, those reviews influence the purchasing decisions of your future customers. This makes it crucial for businesses to have a voice in those conversations, monitoring and responding to reviews and comments.

For companies and buyers alike, customer service has traditionally been used as a troubleshooting tool. Forrester found that companies believe that nearly 50% of all buyers still view customer service as a post-purchase resource, rather than a purchasing aid, and in response, companies have positioned their customer service capabilities to match that expectation. However, Forrester conducted a custom survey of 247 companies and found that this reactive, postpurchase-only customer service mindset can result in missed sales opportunities and contributes to greater purchase dissatisfaction.

Windows 10 is the OS of the future and fundamentally changes how PCs and other devices will be used and supported in organizations. However, with different support periods set by Microsoft for Windows 7, each IT and procurement organization need to evaluate what hardware and software combination will best support their workforce if they are not ready to move to Windows 10 right away. Even purchasing new PCs to take advantage of performance improvements and new form factors while downgrading the OS may not be an optimal strategy going forward.

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.

To succeed in today’s competitive reality, businesses need to free themselves from the limitations of legacy IT infrastructure. The days of purchasing hardware and maintaining massive data centers to run IT must come to an end. Managing and maintaining your infrastructure is simply too expensive. A recent Gartner survey found that more than 80 percent of CIOs consider Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to be a viable option and 10 percent of CIOs already consider it to be their default choice for infrastructure. Utilizing an infrastructure with an elastic, pay-as-you-go service model not only reduces costs and worries, but also frees IT organizations to innovate in ways that will enhance business growth.

Hey all, this is David Press and Doug Lardo, two engineers working on improving the data center networking that enables online services at Riot. This article is the third part in a series on exactly that topic, which begins with an overview from Jonathan of a platform we called rCluster. This time we’ll be discussing our approach to Software Defined Networking (SDN), how we integrate SDN with Docker, and the new infrastructure paradigms that this combination has unlocked for us. If you’re curious about how SDN can transform infrastructure, how to empower developers to obtain and secure networking resources via an API, or how to get out of purchasing larger and larger specialized networking appliances, this article is for you.
