AI Integrations Help Sort Out Sales Signals


Clari, which develops software focusing on the opportunity-to-close, or OTC, process, plans to announce integrations with DocuSign, Clearslide and Xactly on Wednesday at Dreamforce 2017 in San Francisco. Clari’s artificial-intelligence-powered OTC platform already integrates Google and Microsoft email and calendar activity, which gives sales teams immediate knowledge of sales reps’ and prospects’ behavior. “There’s probably no stronger signal when you send a document and see there’s no engagement with it,” said Clari CMO David Karel.

Feds Need to Bolster Cyberprotection Speed and Range


Providing cybersecurity adequate to meet increasing threats is a perpetual catch-up process. Public sector agencies are particularly sensitive targets, with high visibility not only to the citizens they serve, but also to cyberattackers. Despite the emphasis on cyberprotection spurred by the major OPM breach in 2015, government agencies have struggled to maintain adequate levels of protection. A recent survey uncovered both a lack of speed in detecting and responding to attacks, and weak defenses of the full range of possible attack channels.

Federal Agencies Seek Cyberdefenders


The U.S. government is in the process of hiring a small army of IT specialists to bolster its efforts to protect data held at federal agencies from cybersecurity threats. The feds hired 3,000 new cybersecurity and IT professionals in the first six months of the current fiscal year. In addition, the government is “committed to a plan by which agencies would hire 3,500 more individuals to fill critical cybersecurity and IT positions by January 2017,” said Shaun Donovan, director of the OMB.

Lighting Up Process


I’ve been saying for a while that we’re heading toward an era when process dominates and traditional transactions become just one part of those processes. Now, you might say that’s the way it’s always been, and I won’t disagree. Historically, however, processes more or less were managed by employees who used information systems to inform their decision-making, and the result was recorded as a transaction. Today we increasingly are asking our machines to run the show.

Legislation Aims to Bring Product Warranties Into the Internet Age


The process of “checking the fine print” always has been an important aspect of consumer behavior. For product manufacturers, providing important transaction information to consumers also has been a challenging part of business operations.
Take the fine print of warranty information, for example. In the world of e-commerce, how should sellers and buyers approach the issue of an appropriate way to transmit warranty information vital to concluding a sale? The U.S. Senate has addressed that issue by passing S. 1359, the E-Warranty Act of 2015.
