Key Features 

Launch Calendar 

Easily coordinate email campaigns with the new launch calendar. The calendar view gives visibility into all sent and scheduled campaigns at a glance. Include launches from the whole account, a particular workspace, a project, or just a user. View by day, week, month, or year.

Benchmark Reporting 

See how email measures up to other campaigns across an entire MessageFocus account. Performance is indicated via thumb up, or thumb down icons in the Campaign Reports. Results are based on how well a particular campaign has done against the average.

Compare results against other workspaces or projects over a selected period of time. Get an instant rating of performance for delivery, open-rate, clicks, unsubscribes, and conversions.

Updated Heatmap 

The new, improved heatmap continues to give a great visual overview of the most clicked links in a campaign. Enhancements include:

  • a slider for custom opacity
  • greater visibility into link information
  • the ability to print the heatmap for report sharing

Purchase History Filters 

MessageFocus users now have the ability to create custom filters based on transactional data. Once a contact's purchase history is in MessageFocus, users can use tags and set filters to send them targeted messages. Create campaigns based on specific products, types of product or average or total spend.

IP Authentication by Email 

Adestra customers now have another security option when it comes to data protection. In addition to IP access restrictions and OTP Tokens, clients are also able to add IP Authentication by email to their MessageFocus  account. When a user logs on from an unknown or un-authenticated IP address, they will receive an email at the account associated with their MessageFocus userID, containing an authentication link, which they must click before being allowed access to the system.

These features are all live, now, and available to existing Adestra clients. More information, including screenshots, is available at adestra.com.

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
An edge gateway is an essential piece of infrastructure for large scale cloud-based services. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Mikey Cohen, Manager, Edge Gateway at Netflix, detailed the purpose, benefits and use cases for an edge gateway to provide security, traffic management and cloud cross region resiliency. He discussed how a gateway can be used to enhance continuous deployment and help testing of new service versions and get service insights and more. Philosophical and architectural approaches to what belongs in a gateway vs what should be in services were also discussed. Real examples of how gateway services are used in front of nearly all of Netflix's consumer facing traffic showed how gateway infrastructure is used in real highly available, massive scale services.
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
DXWorldEXPO LLC announced today that Telecom Reseller has been named "Media Sponsor" of CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO 2018 New York, which will take place on November 11-13, 2018 in New York City, NY.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
