The Impact of Robotic Process Automation on the Financial Close

Published By: Trintech EMEA ABM Pilot     Published Date: Nov 03, 2017
In terms of reconciliations, we tend to spend most of our time simply gathering data before we can even begin to think about reconciling it. Once the data is finally in the right format, the majority of our time is then spent manually going through the matching process, rather than spending that time focused on the areas that are most critical to us, as can be seen in the diagram on the right.

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.

Securing Your AWS Global Transit Network: Are You Asking the Right Questions?

Published By: Aviatrix     Published Date: Jun 11, 2018
In evaluating the security posture for your Global Transit Network, your first question might be: Why do I even need additional security? Isn’t what Amazon provides “out of the box” adequate? This is not the right question to ask first. It’s important to appreciate that, while Amazon says it has a shared security model, your Amazon EC2 instance may not meet your security requirements “by default.” Though Amazon makes specific security features available to you, it’s still up to you to choose judiciously among the many native and third-party options. As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, walk through five use cases and examine what Amazon provides, and the questions you need to be asking to implement Amazon services – or add additional ones – that are appropriate for your business. After examining each use case, we’ll show you how we handle it for our own business. Who Should Watch? Anyone responsi

Finance Transformation: Cutting through the hype

Published By: BlackLine     Published Date: Feb 26, 2018
If you’re in the middle of a finance transformation initiative, then you’re not alone. Leaders at enterprise and mid-size finance and accounting organizations alike are reviewing their current processes, technology, and talent, to build their blueprints for change. With the rise of broader digital transformation projects, finance organizations are first looking to upgrade their own operating models. The truth is that finance transformation is a journey, not a destination. Many finance organizations have already embarked on it, driving down costs, whether through enhancing shared services centers, or applying more centralization, standardization, and automation. Yet for many, the greater opportunities lie ahead: providing better insight to the broader organization, shedding low-value workloads that hold the team back, and revamping ingrained legacy accounting tasks that create risk. Wherever you are today, there are real opportunities to move the dial away from the status quo.

API-led Connectivity for Government

Published By: MuleSoft     Published Date: Jan 18, 2018
Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs. Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of re-use first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations. In this whitepaper, you will learn: What forces drive digital transformation in federal government, and what role integration plays in supporting digital transformation How a civilian federal agency leveraged APIs to modernize legacy systems and accelerate the speed of integration How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to accelerate project

Your Roadmap to Government IT Modernization

Published By: MuleSoft     Published Date: Nov 27, 2018
Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. But those approaches are easier talked about than executed. As agencies embark on legacy modernization, it becomes imperative to open up the existing technology so that new innovations can be delivered as needed in a secure way. In this guide, produced in partnership with Govloop, we will discuss A five-play roadmap to help those in government get a better sense of where to start on modernization projects. An overview of the Information Technology Modernization Fund (ITMF). Featured government success stories highlighting their modernization projects. The IT Modernization Lifecycle, based on the recent report by the American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council.

IDC: The Economics of software-based storage

Published By: Red Hat     Published Date: Mar 16, 2015
This white paper examines the economics of deploying Red Hat's Storage Server. Based on GlusterFS, a distributed file system that Red Hat acquired as part of Gluster, Red Hat Storage Server is ushering in a new era of software-based storage (also known as software-defined storage by many suppliers) solutions. Such solutions leverage commodity x86-based hardware from server vendors and a distributed shared nothing architecture that allows businesses to build out a service-based storage infrastructure in an economically feasible manner.

Customer Experience Metrics and Key Performance Indicators

Published By: Oracle Service Cloud     Published Date: Mar 23, 2016
This document defines Oracle’s Customer Experience (CX) Value Equation as the strategic method to identify and measure the value of organizational CX. This model was originally documented in “CX Metrics and KPIs – September 2012.” It has received wide support, and has been the #1 searched hit and downloaded CX KPI document for 3+ years – a significant achievement in this industry – in an era where concepts are replaced daily with the latest, greatest fad. Since the original publication, I have received significant feedback that has been overwhelmingly positive, but with a request to comment on additional topics – most notably: brand impact, shared services, and Oracle’s Road to Modern. This updated paper leverages the original work, adds information around these additional topics and incorporates our continued client experience.

Server Virtualization & Cloud Computing: Four Hidden Impacts on Uptime & Availability

Published By: Stratus Technologies     Published Date: Jun 04, 2009
Cloud computing allows companies to use IT resources as a service, taking advantage of shared applications, processing and storage managed within the cloud - either inside a private cloud at an internal data center, or in an external cloud at a service provider. Greater robustness of the virtualized servers supporting this new IT model will ensure a resilient cloud infrastructure capable of delivering "on-demand" access to users.
