Adobe Expands Integrations With AI-Drive Account Profiling, LinkedIn Synching

Adobe has launched new capabilities within the Marketo Engage ABM Essentials offering, part of the Adobe Marketing Cloud, including new AI-powered models in its Account Profiling tool and an expanded LinkedIn partnership. The two updates aim to help accelerate the execution of ABM strategies for sales and marketing teams, as well as drive personalized and account-based experiences.

The Marketo Engage Account Profile feature, powered by AI, now includes predictive analytics, designed to suggest potential net-new accounts and help users better uncover new target accounts from more than 500 million data points within the platform.

Adobe Marketing Cloud has also expanded on its LinkedIn Matched Audiences integration, which aims to position users to sync lists of accounts into LinkedIn through Marketo Engage to create personalized ad targeting. The LinkedIn extension can also filter for different target account characteristics.

“Identifying the right target accounts and key decision makers shouldn’t deter marketers from launching or implementing an ABM strategy,” said Brian Glover, Director of Product Marketing of Marketo Engage at Adobe, in a statement to Demand Gen Report. “It shouldn’t be a guessing game or require weeks of manual work either. With the latest enhancements to Marketo Engage’s Account Profiling capability and our expanded LinkedIn integration, B2B marketers can identify their best-fit accounts in minutes out of a universe of 25 million companies and then target key decision makers at those accounts on LinkedIn.”

iBox: The First Universal and Validated Tool for Predicting the Risk of Kidney Transplant Loss

PARIS, Sept. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Chronic kidney disease affects 1 out of 10 people worldwide and is steadily increasing. When it reaches end-stage renal disease and endangers the lives of patients, dialysis or transplantation is required. Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice, offering a better quality of life and survival chances to patients. Unfortunately, due to the lack of available organs, approximately 55% of patients with end-stage renal disease are still treated by dialysis, representing an annual cost of €2.6 billion in France and more than $40 billion in the USA.

The survival of kidney transplants is therefore crucial. As emphasized by regulatory agencies including the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency, there is a substantial need to develop a robust tool that can predict long-term graft survival. Indeed, over the past 20 years, long-term graft survival did not improve. Therefore, implementing such a prediction tool in clinical practice would facilitate therapeutic interventions by guiding clinical decision-making and would also facilitate clinical trials in kidney transplantation.

So far, no algorithm predicting long-term graft survival has been validated in different countries, populations and clinical scenarios, nor in the setting of randomized controlled trials.

Within this context, an international consortium gathering research teams from Europe and the US and led by Professor Alexandre Loupy, head of the Paris Transplant Group, looked at long-term patient data, including a wide variety of patient, donor and graft parameters. Combining all these data into one prediction system with the use of artificial intelligence proved successful to lead to a robust integrative tool.

The international research consortium has thus developed the first universal tool for predicting the risk of kidney graft loss, called iBox. Based on data easily available during patient follow-up after a kidney transplant, the tool generates probabilities of graft loss up to 10 years after patient evaluation. Tested on over 7,500 patients, the predictions obtained are highly reliable regardless of the health system, the clinical situation, the therapeutic intervention, or the treatment of the patient.

“By optimizing medical decision-making, the use of the iBox could have a significant impact not only on the quality of life of each patient but also on the long-term survival of transplanted kidneys,” explained Professor Alexandre Loupy, “This tool perfectly illustrates the potential of algorithms for decision making process in the field of organ transplantation. It will be deployed at the end of 2019 in two European transplant centers.”

Apart from clinical use, the iBox could also contribute to the development of new treatments. Indeed, current clinical research in the field of kidney transplantation is limited. Evaluating treatment effectiveness on graft survival requires years. The iBox should be able to significantly reduce the time, and therefore the cost, of these studies by providing an early-stage reliable prediction of the long-term graft survival. The iBox is thus emerging as a surrogate endpoint for the development of new clinical studies in kidney transplantation.

The article describing the iBox has just been published in the British Medical Journal. This study was conducted by research groups, clinical centers and patient associations in France, the United States and Belgium.

About the Paris Transplant Group

The Paris Transplant Group is an active network specialized in organ transplantation that brings together doctors and professors from major Parisian hospitals, immunologists, pathologists, epidemiologists, statisticians and mathematicians. Its global aim is to accelerate the translation of immunological and gene expression discoveries into the clinical field of transplantation by filling the gap between basic science and applied biomedical researches. It develops a personalized approach to transplant medicine that will integrate multidimensional information from different specialties.

StackState Named a Cool Vendor by Gartner

AI startup StackState named a ‘2019 Cool Vendor in Performance Analysis’ by leading research company, Gartner

ATLANTA, Sept. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — StackState, world’s leading monitoring and AIOps platform for hybrid IT, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor based on the Sept. 10, 2019 report titled, “Cool Vendors in Performance Analysis” by Padraig Byrne, Federico De Silva, Pankaj Prasad, Sanjit Ganguli, Manjunath Bhat, Scott Etkin, Siddharth Shetty, and Josh Chessman at Gartner, Inc.

“Performance analysis vendors are responding to new challenges in monitoring systems with innovations, including wider adoption of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Action, not just reaction, is key to Coolness,” Gartner writes.

Fast adoption of modern IT Infrastructures

“This is a solid validation of the rapid change we see in the IT operations landscape with the fast adoption of new infrastructures, including hybrid clouds, containers, and microservices,” said Daan Teunissen, CEO StackState. As organizations move towards these highly dynamic architectures, the requirements for monitoring change dramatically,” he explains.

Legacy monitoring vendors are struggling 

Gartner points out: “Legacy monitoring vendors are struggling to adapt their products to fit these modern architectures. Old delineations between monitoring tools (such as infrastructure versus network versus application) are breaking down as tools reach across domains. The glue that brings the layers together is innovations in the application of artificial intelligence tools and techniques.” 

StackState’s AI-based platform for faster identification and prediction of IT incidents

“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner as an acknowledgment of our proactive approach and leading role in providing real-time visibility across infrastructure, applications and business elements. StackState delivers the intelligence and automation required for organizations to be successful with digital transformation through faster prediction and identification of IT incidents and increased business alignment,” Daan said.

Unique 4T Data Model® under the hood

Gartner writes, “StackState’s topology views provide users with a graphical display of relationships across IT and business elements, allowing them to view past and possible future topological graphs of the IT landscape and interrelated business processes.” The analysts also highlight StackState’s highly unique 4T Data Model® and its “ability to ingest multiple data types, tracing and topology across time to capture the state of the IT environment at any given point in time.” This enables organizations’ digital transformation through:

  • Faster identification of root causes
  • Pre- and post-assessment of code deployments
  • Insight into the business impact of IT changes
  • Predictive analytics

StackState expands in the U.S.

This recognition is the latest in a series of announcements made by StackState in recent months. In June, StackState announced it had won $5 million in funding to expand and innovate in the U.S.

About StackState

StackState is the leading monitoring and AIOps platform for hybrid IT. The platform combines and analyzes metrics, logs, events, and data beyond typical monitoring data, like Google Analytics, CMDBs, CI/CD tools, service registries, automation, and incident management tools. The 4T Data Model® is the core of StackState’s monitoring and AIOps platform and the main driver for all real-time monitoring, automation, and predictive capabilities. It combines big data, artificial intelligence, and topology visualization to instantly pinpoint the root cause of (predicted) incidents and improve business alignment. The platform helps organizations make better decisions faster and avoid high severity outages while utilizing their current IT investments.

StackState’s growing customer list encompasses a range of industries — from finance, telecom, to managed service providers — and includes global enterprises like IBM Global Services, Vodafone, KPN Telecom, and ABN AMRO Bank, as well as local innovators, such as NS International and Schuberg Philis
