“Channel data management is about providing high-tech companies with all the data and information they need to effectively manage their distribution channels, sales and marketing,” said Zyme CCO Ted Dimbero. “Traditionally, companies have relied on managing the channel fairly blindly. They may get monthly data, but a lot of the data is incomplete or too late to make important decisions, like what promotions they want to run.” CDM starts with data collection, Dimbero said — in some cases from two or three thousand partners around the world.

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.

What Corning's Gorilla Glass 4 Says About Survival


Corning Gorilla Glass, which resists scratches and breakage, is the leader in providing the protective layer on smartphone screens. For a while, it appeared as though Sapphire might pose a threat, but no more. In the meantime, Corning has introduced Gorilla Glass 4, which is the best to date.

Five of them are in the United States and the last in Europe. While Level3 has not named them, it has repeatedly mentioned writing to AT&T about broadband throttling.
