Customers have more access, more information and more insights into your products and services than ever before – long before and after the point of purchase. Yet, today’s channel-specific marketing practices are too slow and too limiting to effectively decipher the customer buying cycle, especially as consumer expectations continue to escalate and competitive offers become more relevant and targeted. Join guest speaker Senior Forrester Research Analyst, Rob Brosnan, as he shares insight into how bringing together data across paid, earned and owned touch point can lead to breakthrough results by delivering deep customer intelligence, micro-segmentation, and targeting opportunities.
Discover how leading marketers successfully transform customer data to:
• Better understand and engage the new digital buyer across the evolving customer journey
• Improve relevance and campaign performance
• Enhance cross-channel marketing program effectiveness

Business and Operational Risks in Clinical and Safety: Applying Appropriate Technology and Approaches to Mitigate Risk

What: Webinar: "Business and Operational Risks in Clinical and Safety: Applying Appropriate Technology and Approaches to Mitigate Risk"
All business processes are subject to some level of risk. Key to the long term viability of any company is the critical need to identify the risks, quantify them, minimize them, and have a clear plan for dealing with any residual risks.
Organizations try to mitigate risks by implementing systems that support the company's business processes. Commercial software systems that are available from vendors such as Oracle include many capabilities which, if implemented properly, greatly reduce the risks in the business process.
The implementation of complex systems is, in itself, a risky process. Organizations like BioPharm Systems have been able to use their wide range of experience to develop pre-configured and pre-validated solutions that help reduce the risks during the implementation of a clinical trial management system (CTMS) and a safety system.
This one and a half-hour webinar will provide an overview of business risks related to clinical and safety systems and will illustrate how the risks inherent in implementing complex CTMS and safety systems can be significantly reduced.

NelsonHall and buyingTeam recently ran a study involving 120 CPOs and CFOs from FTSE 100 organisations across Europe and the US to better understand procurement’s changing role within business today and tomorrow.
Focusing on indirect (or non-core / GNFR) procurement, the in-depth study identified a number of challenges and opportunities for global businesses in realising maximum benefits from indirect expenditure.
Nearly 60% of Board level executives, perceived indirect procurement's importance as moderate to low (or putting it another way, place little importance on the value that indirect procurement can deliver back to the business).
However, experience has shown that better managed indirect expenditure can deliver significant profit improvements, reduce the levels of risk to which organisations are exposed, and positively influence buying behaviours across the organisation.
So why isn’t indirect procurement higher up senior executives agenda and how can organisations overcome these perceptual challenges?
During the 60 minute discussion you will hear:
- Current perceptions of the indirect procurement function and its desired future role within the organization
- The challenges currently faced by the indirect procurement function
- The business value that can be derived through indirect procurement
- The role of procurement outsourcing in enabling the indirect procurement function to take on a business partner role within the organisation.

The American Attribution Index:
Using Advertising Attribution Management to Improve Media Mix Allocation
Adam Goldberg and Purush Papatla, speakers
In this webcast, we'll learn more about the newly developed American Attribution Index, and how advertisers can use this new index to improve the effectiveness of their media mix allocation.
There are three version of the American Attribution Index: the Aggregate Index, representing average attribution indices across all participating companies and all of their respective industries; Vertical Industry Indices, which represent an industry-specific attribution index across all participating companies in that respective industry; and Company-Specific Indices, developed for a specific company.
The introduction of these indices will allow marketers to gain further insight into advertising ROI, and help marketers more profitably allocate advertising budgets across available online options.
