Tech Marketers Under Pressure for Results

Laura Nurzynski, group vice president of IDC's Global Go-to-Market and Sales Enablement Services, will present insights and innovations in tactical marketing best practices at IDC Nordic Directions.

IDC research shows that tactical marketing efforts will become one of the largest program allocations by technology companies by 2010, and for good reason.

Nurzynski's presentation will explore ways to leverage that investment with marketing and sales best practices in the currently changing world of shifting budgets and reordered investment priorities.

Additionally, IDC research demonstrates that there is a big gap between what you -- tech marketers -- are communicating to your audience, and what your audience needs from you to do their job.

"Your prospects and customers have a message for you," said Nurzynski. "That message is 'When you ask for my time to hear about your solutions -- be credible and be relevant'."

With constrained marketing budgets and a continued focus to improve efficiency, effectiveness, and prove ROI, tech marketers and sales need now, more than ever, to focus on tactics that yield results.

"Reaching the right target, at the right time, with the right information is critical to marketing and sales program success. Understanding the roles and needs of your myriad target audiences, and adjusting your messaging, offers, and programs to better serve each audience and to become a trusted advisor to your prospects and customers is critical," said Nurzynski.

This requires change and coordination across the entire go-to-market chain, from the market research that is conducted to how the sales team is enabled. That said, what a great opportunity to distance yourself from the crowd.

Hybrid Work: How to Enhance Employee Productivity

When you hire qualified talent for a key role and trust them to perform, you'll likely achieve the best outcome. Skilled and experienced people will deliver results, regardless of the challenges. That's a key lesson learned from the pandemic experience as most knowledge workers were asked to work from their homes. However, some resist returning to an open-plan office. It's unacceptable. Meanwhile, forward-thinking leaders decided a "return to normal" is undesirable, and in hindsight, everyone should aspire to be more accomodating than before. Therefore, location flexibility is okay. Hybrid Workforce Market Development How will people adapt to these changes? They'll apply the modern IT tools at their disposal. They'll learn new skills and thrive. Nearly 80 percent of employees are now successfully using online collaboration tools for work in 2021 -- that's up from just over half of workers in 2019, according to the latest market study by Gartner.

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures.
