Connected Planning at RSA

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Sep 11, 2019
Prior to implementing the Anaplan platform, RSA Group had a tedious spreadsheet-based, nine-month planning cycle riddled with data quality issues, which was compounded by siloed, functional fragmentation across the company. As a result, the finance team was spending a significant amount of time cleaning data rather than analyzing it to provide insight to key stakeholders throughout the business. Using the Anaplan platform, RSA Group reduced their financial planning process from nine months to five months. The workforce planning team experienced a 50% improvement in productivity. The business can now own their connected plans, resulting in improved decision support to business users, as well as improved customer service and financial results.

Putting AI to Work for Advertisers for Audience Segmentation

Published By: HERE Technologies     Published Date: Apr 04, 2019
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already begun to improve targeting, segmentation, media buying and planning in the advertising industry. AI algorithms can extract complex patterns from vast numbers of data points, and in so doing, are able to self-correct and learn patterns. The revenue potential that improved personalization, segmentation and targeting that AI provides to marketers is huge. At HERE Technologies, we are placing AI and machine learning at the center of our products and services. We see the opportunity in automated machine learning to enrich the targeting and effectiveness of mobile advertising campaigns in real time.

Published By: Iron Mountain     Published Date: Aug 28, 2014
The terms disaster recovery and business continuity planning are often used interchangeably but, when you think about it, one is much preferable to the other.

In this important on-demand webinar, you’ll hear from one CIO who has given a lot of thought to keeping operations up and running no matter what gets thrown the organization’s way.

A New Approach to Audit and Control in Enterprise Software

Published By: Workday Nordics     Published Date: Feb 27, 2018
This whitepaper looks into Governance, compliance, control, and audit, and how its been traditionally treated as afterthoughts, or even irritants, in the financial modules of classic “big ERP” software. It has been easy and, unfortunately, typical to ignore this topic when planning, building, and evaluating enterprise business software. Control concepts are not as urgent as transaction processing, as visible as financial reporting, or as exciting as analytics so they are almost always an afterthought. Today we can’t afford for governance to be an afterthought, and from day one Workday was built with that in mind.
