Why Transformation Projects Fail and How to Make Yours a Success

Published By: Trintech EMEA ABM Pilot     Published Date: Nov 03, 2017
The primary objective of any financial transformation project is to achieve process improvements by improving the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of financial information, ultimately enhancing shareholder value. Take the example of the close process. It would be incredibly simple to shorten the process by adding more people, however, is this an efficient way to reduce the number of days to close? On the right, the Hackett Group displays that best in class companies actually can be seen closing in fewer days, with greater automation and significant lower audit fees, emphasizing the idea that you really can do more with less.

The Cities of the Future Powered by Cloud Computing

Published By: Amazon Web Services EMEA     Published Date: Sep 09, 2019
City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites: • Consider the local culture and the people • Prioritize basic needs and requests • Work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments • Consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovatio

Five game-changing factors to consider before investing in the European power market.

Published By: ABB     Published Date: Mar 21, 2019
Many in the United States’ power generation industry no doubt long for the relative market tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation that shielded utilities from market fluctuations. But even in those simpler times, when the market was far less volatile, there was still much due diligence required when investors and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects. Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable renewable energy. As more uneconomical and inefficient generation plants go offline, there is, for the most part, sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced generation to meet the growing demand for electric energy. There are pockets of growth

Published By: Group M_IBM Q3'19     Published Date: Jun 25, 2019
To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques.

Published By: K2     Published Date: Apr 01, 2016

Agenda Automation Frees Up Time and Budget to Focus on New Projects

Published By: iCompass Technologies     Published Date: Feb 06, 2015
You know every tax dollar counts: The post-recession drop in funding coupled with mounting financial commitments and legislative demands for improved access to information leave no choice but to make operations more efficient. Agenda automation software eliminates manual tasks associated with creating, distributing, and publishing agendas, reduces the prep time (by as much as 50% or more) and associated costs of meetings while introducing a flexibility that makes tight deadlines easier to manage. The impact is far reaching, from improved transparency to freeing up staff time to work on other priorities. It not only pays for itself in paper savings, it brings money back into the budget—from $300 to $1000 per meeting, depending on the size of the organization. Learn more about how easy it can be to automate your meeting agendas, and what you can get back as a result.

Win, Manage, and Deliver More with Professional Services Automation

Published By: WorkBook from Deltek     Published Date: Apr 26, 2018
The key to delivering profitable projects right from the start is being able to quote them accurately. Bidding on, and deploying scarce resources to a project that could not be delivered profitably is a recipe for failure. Through PSA solutions, top performing consulting firms can more accurately estimate job costs to determine profitability. Using analytics and lessons from past projects, this will enable smarter decisions on which projects should be bid on so that the project portfolio can be fully optimized. Further, this information can be refreshed mid-project so that changes can be made in an agile manner, and projects that are going off the rails can be steered back towards profitability.
