Do you need an ATS? Broadly speaking, we’ve found three common scenarios driving the search for a better way to hire:
Growing pains - companies with growing pains are typically looking for some predictability and structure across candidate sourcing and hiring.
Drowning in email and spreadsheets - companies are looking for more efficient ways to manage candidates and collaborate as a team
Outdated software - companies are looking for a modern, efficient approach to deliver on the original promise of an ATS
A modern ATS, chosen with the right criteria, will relieve these common pain points. Take a step back and think about how your recruiting could be improved with the right tool.
Marketing is not getting more difficult because of data— it’s actually getting easier. In the old days you needed to guess who your audience was and plan in advance what you wanted to say and wait far too long to see if it worked. Those days are long gone—now you can determine EXACTLY who your audience is, deliver a relevant, personalized message in a nanosecond, and find out almost immediately whether it worked! You no longer have to live by the spray-and-pray method— you can be tactical in your delivery. Marketing today is data-driven and uses a wealth of insights and connection points to engage with consumers one to one.
Data about our customers and prospects gives us the ability to deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time. That’s audience targeting, and it’s far deeper than demo targeting, even though targeting by demo is a nice place to start. That said, the sheer volume of data and technology can be overwhelming. Cut through the noise and tackle the ba
Maintenant que les données sont devenues un levier de business et aussi un vecteur d’avantage compétitif, la disponibilité permanente des données, Always On, se pose en exigence stratégique attendue de l’organisation IT. Confrontées à plusieurs points de défaillance potentiels, les organisations IT s’eff orcent depuis des années de concevoir leur infrastructure de données de façon à tenir l’objectif Always On, ce qui induit des coûts élevés et une certaine complexité. Pour qu’une solution soit toujours Always On, elle doit avoir un objectif de point de reprise RPO (Recovery Point Objective) de 0 et un objectif de temps de reprise RTO (Recovery Time Objective) de 0. Mais ces conditions certes élémentaires d’une solution Always On ne sont en aucun cas suffi santes.
As data becomes not only a business enabler but also the base of the business’s competitive advantage, Always On data availability has become a critical business requirement from its IT organization. With multiple potential points of failure, IT organizations have been struggling for years to design data infrastructure to meet the Always On requirement with a high cost and complexity. For a solution to be truly Always On it needs to have both zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO=0) and zero Recovery Time Objective (RTO=0). These are necessary requirements from an Always On solution but by no means sufficient.
Smart pricing based on a sound strategy is fundamental to the success of your technology business. While you may think you can’t afford to spend time and resources defining and enforcing a pricing strategy, the truth is, you can’t afford not to. Sticking to a plan for pricing will help grow your profits, while veering off course can cause devastating effects. Even one or two margin points have the potential to substantially impact your bottom line. ConnectWise Sell is designed to help guide you and your sales team to greater profitability with easy-to-use price management tools.

When Daniel Shuler joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) as CISO in 2016, he knew the hospital would be a tempting target for cyber criminals due to the massive troves of sensitive data it collects to diagnose and treat patients. Over the next three years, Shuler spearheaded a complete overhaul of PCH’s security fabric. First, he decommissioned the legacy AV and engaged BlackBerry Cylance’s ThreatZERO™ consultants to deploy CylancePROTECT® on over 4,000 endpoints. Soon after, CylancePROTECT stopped a ransomware attack that could have disrupted patient care by preventing access to electronic medical record data. Next, he engaged a BlackBerry Cylance Red Team to perform annual penetration testing assignments. Says Shuler, “Our relationship is unique in my experience. BlackBerry Cylance has proven repeatedly that they have our best interests at heart and that they share our commitment to provide the best care possible for children and their families.” Read the case study for the full s
“More than 70 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses," according to National Cyber Security Alliance estimates. That’s not surprising when you consider how many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) still rely on legacy AV tools despite their repeated failures to stop modern malware, ransomware, and zero-day attacks. Legacy AV is a lose-lose-lose proposition for SMBs. Attacks get through and cause damage. IT staff struggle to keep up with endless signature file updates from their AV vendors. End-users complain about sluggish system performance during scans and signature file updates. Fortunately, next-generation solutions are now available that protect endpoints with artificial intelligence (AI) rather than signatures. Ready to learn more?

Uncover the riskiest 1% of threats you’ve been missing. In hours. Not days or months. Nearly all endpoint security solutions claim to block 99% of malware. But what about the 1% of threats they miss? The most dangerous 1% of threats will wreak havoc on your network. If you rely solely on traditional point-in-time technologies, such as antivirus, those threats can go undetected for 200 days on average. For months on end, they can be creeping in and moving laterally across your network causing damage through stealthy malware campaigns without you even knowing it—until it’s too late.
The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already begun to improve targeting, segmentation, media buying and planning in the advertising industry. AI algorithms can extract complex patterns from vast numbers of data points, and in so doing, are able to self-correct and learn patterns. The revenue potential that improved personalization, segmentation and targeting that AI provides to marketers is huge.
At HERE Technologies, we are placing AI and machine learning at the center of our products and services. We see the opportunity in automated machine learning to enrich the targeting and effectiveness of mobile advertising campaigns in real time. But the outcome of implementing such technology depends on the quality of data being fed into it from the outset. AI wouldn’t be as helpful if it’s being used alongside questionable location data or audience data.
