The Platform Wars of 2018


The new battleground in enterprise software is likely to be the software platform. This is not to say that analytics and security are not important, but they are being handled in different ways. Security is being handled in ways that address both hardware and software vulnerabilities, but these things aren’t what customers spend their days thinking about. While everyone wants security, the attitude is that it’s someone else’s job. Platforms, on the other hand, affect more people — and importantly, they are key to making and saving money.

5 Ways Etailers Can Fight Chargeback Fraud


This holiday selling season may have been a good one for retailers, but every silver lining has a cloud. In this case, one shadow will be cast by chargeback fraud, which can occur when shoppers request credit card chargebacks from the issuing bank instead of from the merchant. “Merchants bleed $227 for every dollar lost to e-commerce fraud,” said NuData’s Robert Capps. Etailers are “more susceptible to chargebacks, as they deal in card-not-present transactions,” observed Monica Eaton-Cardone, COO of Chargebacks911.

B2B Digital Ad Spending to Jump Next Year


B2B ad spending will increase 13 percent in 2018 to hit $4.6 billion from this year’s estimated $4.07 billion, eMarketer has predicted. However, its proportion of all U.S. digital ad spending will remain unchanged at 4.9 percent, which implies growth in other digital ad spend areas as well. Desktops and laptops will continue to attract the bulk of B2B digital ad spend, according to eMarketer. They are expected to account for $2.54 billion this year. Mobile B2B digital ad spend, which is forecast to hit $1.53 billion this year, also will continue to grow.

A group of 21 leading technology pioneers this week penned an open letter to key congressional leaders asking them to pressure FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to cancel Thursday’s planned vote to repeal Net neutrality. The process is severely flawed, they argued, and a rules repeal poses an imminent threat to the Internet. The FCC proposal seeks to rescind Obama-era regulations that treat Internet access providers like utilities, protecting consumers and rival services from preference of one content service over another.
