For Oracle, the Future Is Autonomous

Recently, I have attended the Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. For five days, the company has spared no expenses to inform, educate and (last but not least) entertain its customers and partners as well as developers, journalists, industry analysts and other visitors – in total, a crowd of over 50 thousand. As a person somewhat involved in organizing IT conferences (on a much smaller scale, of course), I could not but stand in awe thinking about all the challenges organizers of such an event had to overcome to make it successful and safe. More important, however, was the almost...

The Power of Utility in the Future of Marketing

Guest post by Christian Goy, Co-founder and Managing Director of Behavioral Science Lab In the future, marketing will be driven neither by demographics, on- or off-line behavioral identifiers or psychographics, but by understanding and fulfilling the individual utility expectations of the consumer. Mitch Joel captures this view of future marketing by concluding, “If the past decade was about developing content and engagement strategies in social channels (in order to provide value, humanize the brand, be present in search engines and more), the next decade will be about the brands...

GDPR: The Six Critical Steps to Compliance and Brand Differentiation

From May 2018 when the upcoming EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force, the requirements for managing personal data will change.

Knowing Your Customer Well: The Importance of Assurance and Identity Governance for CIAM

Just like traditional IAM, CIAM requires identity governance to verify and maintain the required quality of the identity attributes collected from consumers. “Quality over quantity” should be your motto from now on: not only it ensures that the data your marketing and business analytics are based on is valid and up-to-date, it automatically reduces the risk of compliance violations, which in case of GDPR can be very costly. Given the widely varied level of trustworthiness of various customer-generated data (remember, “on the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog”),...

Cryptography’s Darkest Hour

For anyone working in IT security, this week surely did not start well. Not one, but two major cryptography-related vulnerabilities have been disclosed, and each of them is at least as massive in scale and potential consequences as the notorious Heartbleed incident from 2014. First, a Belgian researcher Mathy Vanhoef from the University of Leuven has published the details of several critical weaknesses discovered in WPA2 – the de-facto standard protocol used for securing modern Wi-Fi networks.
