“¿Cómo utilizaremos todos los datos de la red inteligente?”
Los productores, distribuidores y consumidores de electricidad de casi todos los países desarrollados se están haciendo esa pregunta. Los datos producidos por los medidores inteligentes, los dispositivos conectados, los generadores de energía, las presas hidroeléctricas, las granjas solares y los consumidores más sofisticados, tiene el potencial de mejorar considerablemente la confiabilidad de la generación, gestión, almacenamiento y distribución de electricidad.
La analítica avanzada puede ayudar a alcanzar todo ese potencial. Pero, ¿cómo? Tiene un papel de gran relevancia en las empresas de servicios que buscan convertir los datos en dinero mediante el análisis de la información acumulada para mejorar la gestión en el lado de la demanda, la asignación de recursos y de personal, pronosticar la demanda y el mantenimiento preventivo. De hecho, la analítica está impulsando esta transformación de la industria.

The 401(k) market has rapidly changed.Is your plan up to date?
Since 2012, there have been significant changes in 401(k)s which have created new risks and opportunities for small and midsized business 401(k) plans. With this rapid pace of change, many business owners, and even some small advisors and recordkeepers have not been able to keep up. We’ll summarize both changes to the 401(k) industry and the opportunities that exist for you to improve your plan, specifically in the following 5 areas:
1. Staying compliant with increasingly complicated regulations – New government regulations have increased burdens on companies offering both health plans and 401(k)s. What used to be compliant may no longer work. Furthermore, software has improved, allowing many error prone, manual retirement plan administration tasks to be automated.
2. Increasing plan effectiveness by lowering fees – Since 2009, average 401(k) plan costs have dropped by almost 30%*. While average costs have come down, not al
Both are fueled by a drive for progress, for pushing
boundaries and advancing the status quo. In these fields,
new trends are like a currency. Keeping ahead of the
next big trend means being aware of the next big seller
and allocating all the right resources – fashion design,
manufacturing, and marketing – for maximum impact.
Miss the hype and the next fashion season is bound to
hurt the bottom line.
New trends are also important to marketers because
owning a new trend is a way to differentiate in today’s
fast-moving digital landscape. It’s a way to stand out
from the pack by investing strategically in the right
approaches and technologies at the right time, then
reaping the benefits organically by leading where others
follow. Naturally, making these decisions requires a bit
of trial and error. Nobody has a magic crystal ball that
guarantees success. But as a rule of thumb, the companies
winning in digital marketing are the ones willing to
adopt new technologies while keeping an sharp.
Once a “consumer-only” problem, Ransomware now has an established business case for profitability, and that’s driving criminals to expand their operations and hunt for more lucrative prey. As a result, commercial enterprises and other large organizations are increasingly in the crosshairs.
Consider these facts:
? Ransomware attacks doubled in 2015
? The number of new ransomware variants increased 17% in Q1 2016
? The FBI estimates that ransomware will net criminals $1 billion in 2016
This white paper dives into the inner workings of ransomware, its perpetrators and how they are evolving to maximize profits. You’ll also learn how companies are fighting back, and review best practices for protecting your organization from becoming another victim of electronic extortion.
Is your well-worn playbook in need of a refresh? What worked best for B2B marketers last year may not help you optimize a moment with a customer or prospect today. All too often, baked in processes get in the way of delighting customers.

Sometimes a perfect storm comes together to signal a radical shift or rebirth of an industry. But it’s not enough to say public relations is in flux or rapidly changing. It’s more impactful to discuss the evolution of the change, understand the potential gaps, and be early to capitalize on opportunities created by these gaps.
The path for change in the PR industry has been tumultuous. And understandably so. The irrationality of basing performance on vanity metrics is so ingrained in the profession that the left-brain, rational piece has been pushed aside. This has created a culture of estimating based on vanity metrics like AVE (ad value equivalency), leading to a dynamic where the C-suite craves that WSJ or TechCrunch story, yet doesn’t believe PR’s reporting on the value of that coverage. When everyone in the marketing stack is crunching numbers and showing real, tangible value, PR is holding onto air. Why keep setting the profession up for failure by perpetuating the cycle of abstr

A key difference between consumer and business-to-business branding is the influence of selling channels, including sales reps, dealers and distributors. While many consumer products are also sold through a channel, the marketer generally reaches past the channel with branding messages, relegating the channel to the status of a local point of sale. By contrast, in many B-to-B markets, the local dealer or distributor really “owns” the end customer and can control access and communications to and from the customer.

For 20 years running, SAS has landed a coveted spot on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Our HR department plays a critical role in keeping current employees engaged and productive as well as anticipating and preparing for future workforce needs. How? One reason is our use of data and analytics to drive HR decision making. It would be easy to assume other companies see the value of analytics; however, a Deloitte survey found 75 percent of HR leaders rate analytics as a priority, yet only 8 percent say their HR organization has a strong analytics capability.
I had the pleasure of meeting David Harcourt, Associate Manager of Employee Insights at Yum! Brands when he spoke at the Analytics Experience 2016 conference in Las Vegas. His session, “HR Analytics from Scratch: 8 Lessons Learned in the First Year,” provided valuable insight into what it takes to build HR analytic competency from scratch.

Cross-border eCommerce sales are set to reach $627 billion by 2022, with the highest growth rate projected in regions outside of North America and Western Europe. Yet US merchants are not capitalizing on these global markets. Only 42% of surveyed US merchants said their eCommerce website accommodated global business. When looking for new growth potential, international eCommerce represents a huge opportunity for North American merchants. Understanding and encouraging overseas consumers is essential for retailers looking to drive online sales and expand internationally.
Among all the trends and buzzwords currently shaking up the marketing industry, one concept is emerging as the one
to watch: customer experience (CX). Providing individual customers with the best possible experience is becoming the
top priority at the moment, even to the point where experience outshines product quality(!) as the main differentiator.
This is confirmed by a recent Gartner1
survey, in which 86 percent of participating companies listed customer experience
as the main factor for gaining a competitive advantage, compared with merely 36 percent in 2012.
