Server virtualization is revolutionizing the datacenter by making applications mobile, increasing application uptime, and allowing IT admins to allocate computing resources more efficiently. The technology has been deployed widely enough that the role of the computer server has evolved from directly hosting operating systems and applications to hosting fully virtualized environments. Server that can support more virtualized machines (VMs - complete application stacks) allow their users to gain higher return on their IT investments. Private Cloud can extend the virtualization benefits in ways that broaden the benefits of virtualization to all parts of the organization. In this white paper, you will learn how Corporate IT uses these tools to meet the increasing demand for IT services.

There is a great misconception that the purpose of attribution modelling is to arrive at a singular, concrete truth; however, the reality is much more nuanced. Attribution modeling is actually an ongoing process of improving how we measure marketing’s impact in order to improve our decision making over time. There are a number of attribution principles that still confuse marketers: Why is attribution a process and not an end state? Why is making small steps forward really better than doing nothing? Why does the perfect attribution model not exist? What makes attribution an ROI investment and not a cost center? With the many attribution myths, challenges, and philosophies in mind, AdRoll and Econsultancy have partnered for a second year in a row to produce The State of Marketing Attribution 2017. This time around we’ve broaden our focus beyond Europe to include content that also covers North America and Asia-Pacific.

"Whether you call yourself a company, brand, brand manufacturer, manufacturer, wholesaler, branded manufacturer or one of the other myriad of categorizations out there, there’s never been a better time to focus on direct-to-consumer (D2C) marketplaces as part of your go-to market strategy. Some 60% of consumers are already visiting your website instead of your retailers’ sites, and more than half will opt to buy directly from brand manufacturers when given the option. After years of relying on marketplaces to handle so many mission-critical activities, it can be challenging to build a successful D2C model that thoroughly addresses them all. This process will require a new way of thinking for you, a cultural shift for your employees and a lot of logistics for everyone involved. But how can you know when it’s time to start selling on e-commerce marketplaces? While the benefits of transitioning to a D2C marketplace model are undeniable, it also requires a significant investment of time
