GDPR is coming into force on May 25, 2018, and we are READY. Here is everything you need to know.
What is GDPR
GDPR is an acronym which stands for General Data Protection Regulation. The new data protection law is designed to give individuals better control over their personal data, and to establish a unified approach to online privacy across the European Union. In other words, GDPR is actually a standard for the handling of private information, with some related legal implications–not unlike HIPAA and SOX. It is important to point out that although the new standard is only applicable in Europe, organizations located outside EU are also subject to these regulations when dealing with EU citizens.Read More›
Iridize will be attending the international ATD conference in May 2018, San Diego. We’ll be joining other global training and learning brands like LinkedIn, Cornell University and Coursera in sponsoring one of the cutting edge events of the year. ATD brings together the brightest minds and most advanced training solutions in the industry. President Barack Obama will be among the key speakers this year.
If you are reading this I guess you probably have a web portal, perhaps you’ve developed a product or maybe you have just purchased new CRM system for your company and you want to make it easier for your customers/employees to use and master this new application.
After hearing about this “new walk-through technology” people keep mentioning you’ve decided you need one for onboarding your users and for supporting them. You shop around, ask friends and maybe even google “onboardusers.com” but most likely, become even more confused, and I completely understand why;
When we started with Iridize, some 6-7 years ago, there were only 2-3 solutions in the market. Yet today, if you google “walk through,” you will find around 20 different products that advertise their wares. From basic products that offer you simple site-tours, to extremely complex, enterprise level applications that offer high end features and user training and even offline implementations.
I’ve written this piece in order help you (in your evaluation) to ask the right questions, to understand what options are “out there” and to help you create an order out of the mix of possibilities. I will not choose one solution over another or mention any specific product names. There is no one-solution-fits-all and I do not presume to dictate to you what is right for you. My aim is rather to offer you a set of tools you can use in the evaluation process.
As the two leading market solutions, Iridize and WalkMe are normally the two final professional solutions companies need to decide between. In this post we try to help you discover the differences between the solutions and to describe the benefits of Iridize over WalkMe to certain customers.
Wishing all our friends, customers and partners a wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah and a splendid 2017 all around.
