Old and new school marketers are familiar with the concept as the practice may have been positioned differently.Today, ABM s set up, nuances and technology has changed a bit with far more options.On its face, ABM is simply the practice of marketing to a select account/client list, a proverbial no brainer for B2B marketers, but constructing a program that is efficient, quantified, measured accurately, and organized is not something that is as obvious.That means that your organizations sales force should be laser-focused on specific stakeholders in specific company to help drive profitable sales from a focused list of accounts, not a broad-sweeping one.As a starting point, most if not all established brands will ingest account information from marketing and/or sales activities to facilitate communications through a CRM or marketing automation tool e.g.Demandbase or Madison Logic , hosting gated content on partner sites e.g.

The K8 1.4 release feels your painAnalysis Container orchestration software Kubernetes reached version 1.4 this week, an act of "user empathy" as described by Google developer advocate Kelsey Hightower, because ease of use has been something of an afterthought."Over the past few releases we've been working hard on easing the complexity of getting a well-maintained, secure Kubernetes cluster installed," Brandon Philips, CTO of CoreOS, told The Register in a phone interview.It also developed Rocket, an alternative to Docker, arguably the pacesetter in the container market.Philips said the people working on Kubernetes are trying to address the perception – reality, to you and me – that the software is complicated to install.And the next release, he expects, will address the challenge of upgrading.

Just over three weeks after announcing a global Galaxy Note 7 recall, Samsung says six out of ten owners in the US and South Korea have returned their potentially exploding phablets.The numbers are even higher in Singapore, where 80 per cent of owners of the recalled devices have got around to swapping them.Samsung is still calling on all Note 7 owners to switch off their devices immediately and send them back to base – but insists the battery problem is an isolated issue.There have been several reported small explosions involving the devices.In the US, the Federal Aviation Administration told air passengers not to switch on or charge a Note 7 during a flight nor store them in the hold luggage.Several airlines instituted an outright ban on the devices.

The latest government road safety campaign to be launched under the THINK!umbrella is all about telling car drivers what to do and how best to not kill cyclists, with a six-point visual list feature telling drivers how to respect the space of bike riders as if this was bloody Amsterdam and cyclists were people.The campaign covers all the common ground, including warning cyclists themselves to sit back from lorries if they think one might be about to turn left and potentially use their fluorescent bib to wipe down their exhaust pipe.The majority of the tips are aimed quite firmly at telling car drivers what to do and what not to do, though, which can only lead to mass fury and head-mounted camera evidence of street fights.And seeing as this is 2016 and everything has to be reduced to the level of a funny meme so stupid people might pay attention to it, there's a funny version of the advice too.This one's aimed at the cyclist, and is all about solving the problem by terrifying people off the roads altogether from what we can tell:

Former CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America Jack Tretton said the PS Vita was a great console that just arrived 'too late'Former Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton recently weighed in on the company's most recent handheld device, the PlayStation Vita, saying it is "a great machine," but just arrived too late.In an interview with IGN, Tretton said the device, which was released back in 2012, came out at a time when smartphones and tablets were growing as more popular options in portable gaming."Now that I don't work there anymore, I think internally it was: 'This is a great machine, it's just too late,'" Tretton said."The world has shifted to portable devices that aren't dedicated gaming machines."According to Tretton, who served the company for 19 years before leaving in 2014, Vita's predecessor — the PlayStation Portable PSP — was more successful in giving players a more console-like experience to handheld devices and managed to draw older gamers back into handheld gaming as well.

Confirming earlier leaks, Roku this morning unveiled a refreshed and rebranded line of streaming media players, with the intent of plugging every hole in the market.Instead of numbering the Roku devices as before, the new streamers use names like Express for the entry-level devices up to Ultra for the high-end player, and focus on consumers particular interests when buying, whether that s price point, portability, better picture quality, port availability, and more.According to Roku CMO Matthew Anderson, the decision to move away from the numerical scheme was because it implied that the higher numbers were the newer players.At the low-end, the new Roku Express will replace the Roku 1, but will offer an upgraded experience.The new device is 75% smaller than the earlier model, supports 1080p HD streaming, and Roku has doubled the processing power in the chip.It s priced aggressively, too, at $29.99, which makes it a compelling choice for those considering shopping for a stick like Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV Stick, simply because of price point.

At its hardware event on October 4, Google will launch a first-party Wi-Fi router that can be deployed in groups to create a mesh network, according to a new report.The product will simply be called Google Wifi and will cost $129 each, according to Android Police.Last year Google introduced OnHub routers made by third parties — the first one from TP-LINK and the second from Asus.Those are more modern, app-enabled gadgets than the routers that people have relied on at home for years.But they aren t the only routers to capture the imagination lately — startup Eero has gotten lots of buzz for its routers that run a mesh network when you place them around a home, and earlier this year Eero announced a $50 million funding round.If the Google Wifi is good, it would post serious competition to Eero.As the newest Google-branded hardware product, the Google Wifi would make the biggest splash at the hardware event, where Google is also expected to release Pixel smartphones and potentially also the Google Home smart speaker and a 4K version of the Chromecast media streaming device.The Google Home will cost $129, while the 4K Chromecast Ultra will cost $69, Android Police is reporting in a separate article.As for the new phones, which are believed to be built by HTC and carrying the Google Pixel name, the smaller one will have a base price of $649, Android Police reported earlier this week.

The images Lenovo sent us don t come close to doing it justice, so you ll have to trust us—or take a look yourself at a live unit.Splashes of silver distinguish the display hinges and the logo.The X1 Yoga weighs about 2.8 pounds, and measures approximately 13 x 9 x 0.66 inches.In short CPU-based tasks, like our Cinebench R15 benchmark, its Core i7-6600U part can give a small boost in performance over Core i5 parts.Its score of 299 marks a roughly 3-percent gain over ultraportables with a Core i5-6200U processor currently one of the more common parts in ultrabooks .That said, the Surface Book still manages to hold its own running a Core i5-6300U CPU.
