15 Essential KPI's of the Revenue Lifecycle

Published By: ServiceSource     Published Date: Sep 15, 2015
The principle “what gets measured gets managed” dictates that by simply examining an activity, you can get a handle on it and find ways to improve it. However, not all metrics are created equal—meaning not all things that can be measured will give you the ability to proactively take action in a timely manner. Case in point: If you measure the effectiveness of your customer success and recurring revenue growth programs based only on retention, churn, renewal or attrition rates, then you have a problem. These are very important metrics, and they are definitely key to your business. The problem is that these metrics can only tell you if you have a problem, which you often discover only after it is too late to affect real change.

Asses Your Disaster Recovery Readiness: How Adequate is Your Disaster Recovery Plan?

Published By: HP     Published Date: Mar 31, 2015
When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow. Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.

Digital Transformation 2.0: New Technologies, New Opportunities

Published By: Comcast Business     Published Date: Oct 19, 2018
Industry historically has run on the concept of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Digital Transformation changed that, as organizations increasingly embraced technology to push ahead of their competitors and be more proactive in the decisions that impact their business.
