Quality assurance remains an essential and mission-critical business function that must be done on a consistent basis. Speech and text analytics alters and enhances the process by giving companies a way to review as much as 100% of their interactions on a timely and consistent basis. Now that there is a more scientific, accurate and cost-effective way to do QA, it’s time for companies to update and invest in these programs with new technologies and best practices.
For nearly 30 years, contact center quality monitoring has been an established process, performed essentially the same way by many—if not most—organizations.
But much has changed in three decades. Today’s customers have become the final arbiters of what constitutes quality by virtue of the collective power of social media, and traditional quality metrics may no longer align with what consumers actually want or expect. What challenges does this pose to traditional quality monitoring programs? And how can contact centers evolve their quality monitoring and assurance processes to meet these new challenges?

Customer experiences have evolved tremendously over the years. Technology has made buyers smarter and more empowered; with online reviews and mobile web access, customers know more about a company's products, services, competitors, and pricing than the organization may know itself. Today's consumers expect tailored, engaging experiences and rich content delivered seamlessly across a variety of touch points.
Enterprises look to private clouds for more than just virtual infrastructure provisioning. Private cloud vendors have started to bundle additional capabilities into their solutions, including pervasive VM management capabilities, design tools for complex application templates, and service catalogs.
Over the next 12 months, more than half of enterprises will prioritize building internal private clouds. Today, the most common approach is through the purchase of commercial software to layer atop existing infrastructure resources. Regardless of the approach you choose, there’s no shortage of tools to support your efforts.
The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.
Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
At the time this definition was published, “cloud” was already part of industry parlance, and was beginning to take root in the general lexicon. Additionally, global business spending for infrastructure and services related to the cloud had topped $78 billion. This year, enterprise spending on the cloud will reach an estimated $174 billion, and is expected to climb to $235 billion by 2017.2 Inevitably, as both business IT and consumer mindsets evolve toward the cloud in coming years, we will continue to witness dramatic growth in IT products in some areas, and significant reductions in other areas—resulting in a reshaping of the industry as a whole.
If your company is using cloud computing services today, it’s highly likely you are already in a hybrid cloud configuration. The key question is whether you are actively managing this reality.
In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out.
