Cloud Native, Marketing & Commerce | September 14, 2021
Simplified and Accelerated Cloud Native MarTech (IDC)
The most efficient, flexible, and future-proofed marketing systems are cloud native. This architecture provides significant economic and operational advantages over on-premise or conventional SaaS solutions. However, many early adopters of marketing solutions deployed on-premise and SaaS solutions because they were considered best of breed at the time, and cloud-native solutions and IT organizations hadn't matured to the point of mission-critical readiness. Companies that adopted on-premise or SaaS solutions now find themselves lagging in their ability to quickly upgrade and enhance their systems and adapt to the new demands of a highly personalized, digital-first, omnichannel world. Today, your MarTech infrastructure is your brand, and if you compete against companies with systems that provide greater resiliency, adaptability, and efficiency, you are at an increasingly significant disadvantage.  When cloud first emerged, it was a difficult proposition to "lift and shift" conventional applications environments. It could take years of planning, testing, and parallel operations to make the change. However, legacy applications that have been "lifted and shifted" lack the agility, performance, and ease of use marketers need, while hosted SaaS applications lack customizability and control. For example, when Netflix first moved to the cloud it took approximately eight years. Today, that time has been reduced to a matter of days and weeks due to the evolution of cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS), the migration processes and tooling, and the skills needed to operate in the cloud. Taking this a step further, HCL Unica has accelerated this cycle with its cloud-native foundation that is all about fast and flexible deployments. With HCL's Solution Factory (SoFy), new cloud-native deployments of HCL solutions, including Unica, can be provisioned in a matter of minutes and deployed on premises, or via public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud. If the full set of skilled resources is lacking, HCL...

Why You Need HCL Connections to Help Transform Employee Communications
Although work environment changes due to the pandemic have shown that companies can function with a large part of their workforce working remotely, questions remain about how to effectively support employee engagement and communication. Employee communication is not just integral to the employee experience because it drives engagement, but it also contributes to employee satisfaction, productivity, collaboration and ultimately your business’s success. Let’s begin with this question, “How do you create effective communication channels for employees when you’re not face-to-face?” There was an adage I learned when I first became a manager, communicate face-to-face as much as you can. Those were the days when your main communication options were limited to email and face-to-face meetings. That’s not to say that face-to-face meetings are outdated, but today’s reality for communicating with employees is much different and more challenging. Attitudes have changed, and — thankfully — the tools to communicate have multiplied. Let’s take a look how remote work transitions are impacting CEO thinking and decision-making. Rethinking the Ways We Communicate  KPMG did a survey with CEOs on the pandemic’s impact on business operations. The most striking outcome was that the pandemic has forced CEOs to rethink how they work and communicate within their organizations. Learning to operate in a remote or hybrid work environment is certainly more complicated, and this new work model has challenged CEOs to reevaluate business norms.   Three quarters of the CEOs surveyed said they would continue to invest in digital collaboration and communication tools because these tools help fill communication and engagement gaps.  Interestingly, 73% of CEOs found that when hiring, a remote or hybrid working environment is more attractive to perspective employees. The employee experience is typically a key factor for people in deciding on new career choices. 69% of CEOs said they would be down-sizing office space to save money. That’s a clear indication that some employees are...

The Latest HCL RTist Update Brings Cool Features, Improvements
HCL RTist 11.1 2021.34 is now available for download. As always, there are several interesting new features and improvements. Let's take a look at some of them: BIRT support It's now again possible to use BIRT with RTist for creating reports and data visualizations. This feature was available in version 10.3 but for an older version of Eclipse. Now, the more recent versions of Eclipse used with RTist 11.0 and RTist 11.1 are supported. Since BIRT is a fairly big component we decided to package it as a separate update site. You can download it from our InfoCenter. At the time of writing only the version that supports RTist 11.0 is available there, but within a few days a version for RTist 11.1 will also be available. Operations in Enums   You can now create operations in an enumeration. They will be translated to global functions in C++. Having a global function that operates on or returns an enum literal can be an alternative to wrapping the enumeration in a class. Template Parameters in Project Explorer Labels If a class or operation has template parameters, it's now possible to see this in the Project Explorer, without having to expand the class or operation. A new preference RealTime Development – Project Explorer – Show Template Parameters in Labels controls this behavior:     Path Variables in Transformation Configurations   You can now use path variables in certain TC properties. This is useful in those TC properties that specify a path, as an alternative to using string substitution or environment variables. Path variables are defined in Preferences at General – Workspace – Linked Resources. The model compiler was improved to report warnings if it finds variables in a TC that cannot be resolved. For example: WARNING : Cannot resolve variable '$(TARGET_DIR)' in...
