In December of 2018, Sirkin Research was commissioned by LiveAction to identify the top network challenges faced by enterprise-level organizations in complex, hybrid networks. The survey was sent to network and IT professionals predominantly in large mid-market and enterprise companies with at least 1000 employees. The results are based on perspectives from 204 survey respondents, and provide rich insights into the network performance challenges large organizations encounter daily.
Talent is an increasingly critical differentiator of corporate performance and poses one of the most significant barriers to growth. CEB research finds that boards at top-performing companies are twice as likely to have a deep understanding of talent issues as boards at lower-performing competitors. However, most boards lack sufficient understanding of key talent issues facing the companies they oversee, particularly because the data and analysis they receive provide limited insight. This whitepaper outlines the critical talent conversations every board should have and shows how industry leaders are broadening their understanding of talent issues and assurance about critical talent risks by expanding the perimeter of talent issues they monitor beyond executive leadership and reshaping conversations on executive performance evaluation and succession.

The volume of customer data that marketing departments possess continues to grow at explosive rates. But new research from the Aberdeen Group finds that less than 40% of marketers use this information to optimize and target their campaigns. This "data rich, insight poor" phenomenon is examined in their new white paper, which identifies common analytics challenges-and shows how you can rise above them.
Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.
Bronto partnered with Ipsos Research and Censuswide to survey more than 4000 US, UK and Australian shoppers about their preferences for cross-border shopping, factors that entice them to shop outside their home country, and remaining barriers to global ecommerce. In this paper we found:
- Australian consumers (71%) embrace cross-country commerce more than the UK (44%) and the US (42%).
- Women and shoppers over 55 years old are more likely to choose merchants in their home country.
- The two top reasons for buying from another country are unique merchandise at a better price.
- Barriers include concern about shipping costs, distrust of online payments and security worries.

A number of network security technologies have arisen that claim to be the "next generation" of network defense - but what does this concept actually mean? How is the threat landscape changing the way we think about and deploy network security solutions?
Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at EMA Research provides insight into what we can expect in the area of network security and how to leverage new technologies to meet today's security challenges in light of other considerations such as overall complexity and performance.

Groundbreaking research in customer behavior has revealed that the way humans respond to brands is simply an extension of the way they instinctively perceive, judge and behave towards one another. That insight could revolutionize your brand strategy.
Microsoft® recently researched the experience of nearly 200 companies with more than 250 PCs that have deployed one or more of the applications in the Microsoft Dynamics line of business management solutions. Among these companies, whose attitudes to technology tended to be more forward looking than usual, the most common issue was the need for modern systems. The pain points most often cited were manual processes that cause mistakes and inefficiencies, integration problems with other systems (both internal and external), lack of operational insight, and legacy software support and customization issues. This white paper explores the experience of these companies in more detail to help you understand how you can use Microsoft Dynamics to modernize your business processes and drive business success.
