Q&A with Irshad Raihan, Director- Product Marketing at Red Hat

Irshad Raihan, Director of Product Marketing at Red Hat, comes with an experience of more than 20 years. Previously, he has been associated with companies like IBM and Hewlett Packard for Big Data and Data Management products.

I see the role of the marketer centered on three functions - Inspire, Inform, and Initiate.



MEDIA 7: Congratulations on being listed as one of the ‘Top 100 Product Marketing Influencers 2020’! What inspired you to get into marketing?
IRSHAD RAIHAN:
Thank you very much. It is an honor to be mentioned alongside giants from our industry, some of whom have been my mentors, and inspired me to seek a career in marketing. The role of marketing has evolved considerably since the time I shifted gears from a software development career trajectory to one in marketing.

Marketing has become central to business strategy and, at the same time, advances in reporting and analytics have made it possible to measure revenue contribution from marketing at a much more granular level. In a sense, marketers have the best view of the business - from customers and competitors to engineering and sales. It’s the best seat in the house!

M7: Given your target audience, what channels do you consider best for technology marketing at Red Hat?
IR:
Like most enterprise technology companies, we run omnichannel campaigns. While it’s important to get the balance just right between multiple channels, it’s easy to get overly focused on channels rather than customers. At Red Hat, we take a persona-based approach to messaging and sales conversations. The channel mix is a downstream decision determined by the needs of the persona. It’s not unlike a DJ that mixes music to suit the vibe of the audience.


Despite all the technological changes, the fundamentals of telling compelling stories and being maniacal about understanding customers remain at the heart of great marketing.



M7: Could you please throw some light on the impact of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning on marketing today?
IR:
Like every facet of our lives, AI/ML has fundamentally altered our decision-making framework, and in some cases, can make real-time decisions for us. This goes back to my inspiration for becoming a marketer in the first place. I see myself as part of a broader trend of engineers and scientifically minded people moving into the marketing discipline.

Yes, marketing has become more data-driven but it’s more than that. There is a tectonic shift in the mindset we apply to measure marketing success, and more importantly, to making course corrections along the way. AI/ML can certainly help add automation to the marketing mix to help marketers quickly respond to competitive threats, global events, and regulatory changes.

Another area where AI/ML has marketing implications is around predictive analytics. For instance, a number of marketing technology (or MarTech, for short) tools include propensity models to determine the likelihood of customer conversion.

M7: What marketing strategies are you are looking forward to implementing in 2021 and why?
IR:
I see the role of the marketer centered on three functions - Inspire, Inform, and Initiate. We look to inspire great ideas, and help our customers reach for the impossible. Once we have buy-in into the “why”, we arm customers with the most relevant data points to help them make a purchasing decision around product and vendor. And finally, we look to initiate action as a trusted advisor along the customer journey.

Customer lifetime value is a core metric that drives our strategies and actions. It’s not enough to offer a point solution that fits the needs of customers today. Given the pace of change, customers not only want to trust a brand that can serve them in the long term, but also aligns with their values.

M7: What marketing-related challenges do you face every day at Red Hat? Which technology tools do you bank on for overcoming these?
IR:
MarTech is a considerable investment at Red Hat. We have tools to deliver insights, diminish barriers to collaboration, and create scalable workflows for globally dispersed teams. However, it can sometimes be tempting to think our work as marketers is complete when we simply invest in tools.

The biggest challenge that most CMOs face is to build a data-driven culture that creates shared accountability not just between marketing stakeholders, but also between marketing and sales teams.
Modern marketers are working with a number of variables in a constantly changing landscape. The traditional marketing funnel has disappeared. Buyer journeys are shorter yet vastly more complex than before. New “crossover” personas are constantly emerging. The subscription economy is permanently disrupting the way customers research and purchase. The only way to address this volatility is to create a common mindset across the organization to act, measure, and adjust iteratively.

M7: Your advice to marketing enthusiasts?
IR:
While it may seem like the pandemic has brought traditional, face-to-face marketing activities to a halt, it has given rise to many creative digital marketing tactics. Digital marketing has leveled the playing field in so many ways, enabling smart marketers to apply a data-driven mindset to optimize spend without breaking the bank.

Despite all the technological changes, the fundamentals of telling compelling stories and being maniacal about understanding customers remain at the heart of great marketing.

Observer Platform Innovations From VIAVI Enhance Visibility Across Users, Applications and the Cloud

PR Newswire | January 12, 2024

Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) (NASDAQ: VIAV) today announced significant enhancements to the Observer Platform allowing IT teams to further maximize network availability, productivity and compliance. The enhancements include critical new capabilities in End-User Experience (EUE) scoring, digital certificate analysis, application identification, Unified Communications (UC) support, and Azure traffic visibility through NSG flow log analysis. The VIAVI State of the Network study revealed enterprises' top challenges in managing their networks. With a majority of enterprise applications hosted in the cloud, fewer than 1% of organizations say they are satisfied with network visibility. Problem domain isolation – pinpointing issues across network, server, application, or client domains ­– remains one of the biggest challenges for NetOps teams. End-user experience is the highest ranking KPI. And nearly half of teams spend between 10 and 20 hours per week troubleshooting UC platforms. The latest Observer release, v18.17, addresses these challenges to improve reliability of networks in meeting organizational objectives. Major new enhancements include: EUE Scoring Updates. Observer's patented EUE analysis now provides deeper insight into each problem domain – network, server, application or client – clearly showing individual scores and associated deductions, making it easy to understand what is contributing the most to performance degradations. Traffic Visibility for Azure and AWS. With the introduction of NSG flow log support, Observer adds insight and visibility for Azure environments equivalent to the existing capabilities for AWS using VPC Flow Logs. As Microsoft does not natively support packet extraction, flow visibility is essential for troubleshooting issues within complex Azure environments. Enhanced Application Recognition. Through added Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Application Identification (AppID) capabilities, the Observer Platform now recognizes thousands of specific business and non-business applications natively without having them embedded or hidden within HTTP or HTTPS. UC Call Visualization. Observer is now the only platform in the industry to transform both packet and flow data into intuitive, actionable visualizations that follow the journey of calls through the network infrastructure and identify the location and root cause(s) of poor UC performance. Digital Certificate Analysis. Running servers with non-compliant or expired certificates is a risk, especially if affected hosts and services are public facing. Certificate analysis enables a proactive approach to take timely action, prevent negative outcomes, and safeguard networks and reputation. "Applications are now distributed across private data centers, multiple public clouds, and edge locations, yet many companies fail to upgrade their network monitoring and management solutions to keep pace with these highly complex environments," said Bob Laliberte, Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "VIAVI has recognized this shift and responded by providing comprehensive visibility across these distributed, heterogenous environments. The Observer platform has evolved to support these new environments and its emphasis on end-user experience should appeal to enterprise customers looking to accelerate their transformation, enabling greater operational efficiency and ensuring positive end-user experiences." "In partnership with our customers, we have leveled up performance and threat visibility and developed a powerful set of capabilities that provide insights where they are needed most," said Chris Labac, Vice President and General Manager, Network Performance and Threat Solutions, VIAVI. "Our patented End-User Experience Scoring can now be used by virtually the entire IT team to effectively identify, prioritize, and remediate business-impacting issues. Our UC visualizations are now the best in the industry. New DPI and Azure capabilities round out a release that we're thrilled to deliver. Our focus continues to be not on delivering more KPIs, but delivering more clarity, actionable information, and business value." About VIAVI VIAVI (NASDAQ: VIAV) is a global provider of network test, monitoring and assurance solutions for telecommunications, cloud, enterprises, first responders, military, aerospace and railway. VIAVI is also a leader in light management technologies for 3D sensing, anti-counterfeiting, consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, government and aerospace applications.
