Overlooked Insights In Employee Engagement
Do you know what your employees really want from your organization?

Dear HR Practitioner,
You know that a Learning Management System (LMS) can bring value to your organization, but how do you make the business case to those outside of HR?
This is one of the most common hurdles that we hear at Halogen Software from our customers, so we thought it would make for a very interesting survey topic. Like you, we wanted to know how organizations are making their decisions around HR technology for learning, including:
• What role HR plays in the selection of the LMS,
• Which LMS features are most important,
• How organizations calculate the ROI of their LMS, and
• Whether learning content is created in-house

Diversity: from good thing to must-have
The US population is changing. And it’s in every employer’s interests to ensure their own workforce reflects that change.
Not just because a more diverse workforce will help you connect more effectively with your increasingly diverse customers, students or patients, but also because there’s strong evidence to suggest organizations with greater diversity financially outperform their peers.
Achieving that diversity – and realizing its benefits – means reaching the widest possible range of candidates.

It’s no longer enough just to convert—to stay competitive, you need to turn prospects into lifelong fans of your brand. But with commerce channels and buying behavior changing so fast, we all know that’s easier said than done.
What were once communications channels are now becoming commerce channels, with consumers making purchases on their TVs, on Twitter, and by text message. In the past, commerce and content data and experiences sat in their own silos. Those days are gone.
The global beauty company provides an exhilarating example of the power of context-driven commerce. When customers can rely on brands to achieve the outcomes that are important to them, brand owners can shift their focus from nonstop customer acquisition to long-term customer engagement.
The Sitecore Experience Platform and the underlying Sitecore Experience Database are foundation technologies for IT organizations wanting to implement context-driven commerce environments that function elegantly today and into the future. Sitecore puts an end to digital retailers’ obsession with cart abandonment, replacing it with opportunities to delight customers with personal, meaningful commerce offers.

In fact, according to IDC Connected Mainframe adopters are realizing 300% ROI, a 10 month payback and additional $200M in application revenue. The Infographic also covers the 2 main strategies of Connected Mainframe – Modernization and Integration and technology initiatives under each with customer quotes.
Credential stuffing is on the rise. Bots are getting smarter and malicious actors are getting more confident. Unfortunately, these advanced cyberattacks are also becoming more difficult to detect with standard security controls.
Learn more about credential stuffing and how you can protect your business, your brand, and your customers from bots that commit fraudulent activity.
Websites provide online businesses with an unprecedented level of contact with customers and end users. However, they also place business information where it can be easily accessed by third parties – often using automated tools known as “bots”. For many organizations, bots represent up to 50% or more of their overall website traffic, from good bots engaged in essential business tasks to bad bots conducting fraudulent activities. Regardless of business impact, bot traffic can reduce website performance for legitimate users and increase IT costs. Organizations need a flexible framework to better manage their interaction with different categories of bots and the impact that bots have on their business and IT infrastructure.

DDoS attacks can impair your website, tarnish your brand, and impact your bottom line. Conventional security products like firewalls and intrusion prevention systems and newer cloud-based scrubbing services can’t protect your DNS infrastructure against today’s increasingly sophisticated attacks.
The best way to defend against DDoS attacks is to trust the operation of your DNS infrastructure to a managed service provider that lives and breathes DNS. Best-of-breed managed DNS providers operate global anycast networks that mitigate DDoS threats to keep your online business up and running.
As organizations develop next-generation applications for the digital era, many are using cognitive computing ushered in by IBM Watson® technology. Cognitive applications can learn and react to customer preferences, and then use that information to support capabilities such as confidence-weighted outcomes with data transparency, systematic learning and natural language processing.
To make the most of these next-generation applications, you need a next-generation database. It must handle a massive volume of data while delivering high performance to support real-time analytics. At the same time, it must provide data availability for demanding applications, scalability for growth and flexibility for responding to changes.
For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.
