Industry standards have been established to ensure performance, consistency, and interoperability between network equipment vendors. However, the consistent implementation and operation of these standards become even more critical as speeds and bandwidth increase. At the fiber infrastructure level, this also means more testing may be needed beyond the basic fiber end-face inspection certification and Tier 1 testing. This white paper explores Tier 2 optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) testing and examines its relationship to Tier 1 testing and how inspection plays into both. This paper defines Tier 2 testing and explains when it is needed. It also addresses the OTDR complexity argument.

Mobile, relationship intelligence, and sales coaching are necessities for today’s sales organization and are pervasive capabilities for every sales automation solution category. No vendor solely offers these capabilities without complementing them with other functions. Instead, they are embedded across the categories mentioned above. For example, sales content management providers cannot compete without extensive mobile expertise; market intelligence and customer success do not work without relationship intelligence; and sales coaching is not constrained only to the sales performance management vendors.

Manufacturing suppliers range from approved vendors and contract manufacturers (CMs) who only deliver materials and services to complex strategic partnerships. A transactional relationship based primarily on order fulfillment might work well for some companies. However, by taking a CM relationship to the next level of supplier-partner, organizations gain strategic benefits including cost savings, reduced risks, and optimized profits. The right cultural fit and the right-sized partner for your business can play a key role in building this long-term relationship.

Customer experience might be a relatively new term, but the concept goes back millennia. In Ancient Greece, the retailer’s relationship with the customer was deep and personal, and that’s because the seller knew almost every customer extremely well. What happened? Mass distribution and mass marketing, for one. But now, thanks to technology, we are returning to being able to form a deep, personal relationship with the customer. Read this eBook to learn about the retailer’s journey from knowing the customer to depersonalization to using powerful technology to go back to the types of vendor-buyer relationships that existed thousands of years ago.

Increasing your non-interest revenues without increasing customer fees that ultimately drive customers away can be a challenge. The digital economy is opening up new ways to drive additional revenue from existing customers. The same technical innovations are also opening up new ways to communicate with customers about both digital and traditional offerings. But that results in customers becoming overwhelmed with advertising and marketing messages. They are forced to decide upfront who is providing relevant information and who to completely ignore. Ultimately, it comes down to trust. Customers consider generic messages to be spam and learn to filter them out, even if they come from a known vendor. Over the long run, these types of marketing campaigns not only see diminishing returns, they can even damage your long-term relationship with customers and decrease revenues. Micro-marketing overcomes the noise that traditional spam-marketing creates and establishes news levels of trust betwee

Previously, many companies focused mainly on gathering consumer data for their own use.

The talent acquisition market has changed dramatically. It is no longer just about placing ads on different sites and waiting for the resumes to roll in. Rather, it’s ferreting out those passive candidates and convincing them that your company is where they can shine and grow in their profession. Today’s recruiters must proactively search, find, and nurture candidates in this tough job market, and they need good tools to do this. In Forrester’s 45 criteria evaluation of talent acquisition vendors, we identified the 12 most significant software providers — ADP, Cornerstone OnDemand, Findly, IBM Kenexa, iCIMS, Jobvite, Lumesse, Oracle, PageUp People, PeopleFluent, SuccessFactors, and Technomedia — in the talent acquisition category that provide both applicant tracking system (ATS) and various levels of talent relationship management (TRM) functionality in their recruiting offering.

Today, the internet has changed the way buyers discover solutions. More people are meeting and researching vendors online than ever before. Your ideal customers are reading blog posts and articles, checking Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn profiles, and forming opinions based on what you say and share online. Before they call to get to know your company better, they turn to Google for answers and information. If a competing vendor appears smarter, more interesting, or more reliable than you, your buyers will reach out to them first. These online engagements have changed the rules of buyer/brand communications. So how can you and your company form meaningful relationships with buyers who are getting to know you long before they’ve been introduced?

It is becoming increasingly more obvious that for data to have any real value, it must be in motion. It must flow. “All entities move” Heraclitus added, “and nothing remains still.” These ancient musings have startling relevance to the modern challenges and benefits of Master Data Management (MDM) programs across global enterprises. The entities he referred to were more philosophical in nature, yet it is no coincidence that the entities of our commercial world – customers, vendors, prospects and the relationship between them – are in a constant state of movement and change.
