Ecclesiastical uses SAS® to improve data quality to make better decisions that enhance the reputation of the business, affect millions of pounds of risk selection/underwriting and help to establish optimum reinsurance levels.
Millions of pounds hang on decisions around reinsurance and risk selection. Achieving the best possible outcome means taking data and turning it into ‘decision-making gold’. The key is to have good data going into the process.
HRMC Acclaim is a unique talent acquisition SaaS platform that uses artificial intelligence to automate the decisioning and selection process, and starts with an immediate interview rather than a cold, flat resume request.
To support a business technology agenda, infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals must factor critical aspects of their own environments into their decisions and understand how these requirements affect implicit and explicit weighting as they evaluate hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) offerings. This report covers the major variations in workloads and data services that can make an impact on your selection and outlines a methodology for evaluating the true cost of these solutions.
Is it better to build your own internal cybersecurity expertise and security intelligence & analytics platform or should you outsource the responsibilities to a team of experts? Read this paper by Securosis, L.L.C, an independent research and analysis firm, to understand the drivers, use cases and partner selection criteria for managed security monitoring.

Digitalization brings both new opportunities and confusion to even the most carefully planned selection processes for WCM. CIOs and IT leaders aiming to boost the effectiveness of their digital business strategy should use this document to help them select the most appropriate vendor and solution.
Gartner Magic Quadrant reports are the standard of excellence for vendor evaluation, research and reporting. While many vendors are evaluated, only a select few meet the stringent criteria for inclusion. Continuing its long-standing tradition, Gartner has released the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management (WCM).
Progress is recognized as a “Challenger” in this year's report, based on a combination of completeness of vision and ability to execute. This is the third consecutive inclusion for the company's award-winning web content management and digital experience solutions.
Web content management is an integral piece to any successful digital transformation strategy. In our minds t
As the pressures of digital disruption force companies to either transform or die, companies in Asia’s BFSI sector are rushing to integrate cutting-edge technologies and roll-out innovative new services to their customers.
Fortunately, thanks to rapidly advancing technologies, developments in the regulatory landscape and the initiative of leading BFSI organisations, we are seeing incredible examples of innovation within the sector on a monthly, if not weekly, basis.
To celebrate this trend, we will showcase in this article a selection of the latest and greatest innovations offered by Asia’s leading BSFI organisations, which we believe represent the future of BFSI services not just in the region, but worldwide.
The digital financial services world has created an amplified set of challenges for the data center and network. Its role in enabling the success of the wider institution has become even more critical, but to deliver this it needs to provide a higher level of performance with increased agility, while maintaining high levels of efficiency and security.
This is forcing institutions to transform their underlying IT capabilities, with the need to simplify the network, obtain more flexible connectivity, automate IT operations, and enable centralized control and administration being core strategies in this respect. As shown in Figure 8, this is driving a number of requirements for the future network. Key considerations for financial institutions in architecture design and vendor selection should be around moving toward a software-defined, intelligent, cloud-ready, and open network that enables the institution to meet its ICT imperatives and achieve these key ICT strategies.
When it comes to Design for Manufacturing (DFM), it’s never too early to start. Planning ahead and thinking through the entire product lifecycle is the best way to reap all the benefits that come from excellent design — including better part selection, improved product quality, streamlined approvals and cost savings. Start by identifying an experienced Countract Manufacturer (CM) that understands the importance of good DFM and who will work with the product developer at every step.

Which questions have you overlooked and why do the answers matter?
According to Gartner, “OT SRM (security and risk management) leaders must ask the right questions during the technology procurement process to achieve long-term success in their security investments.” Further, Gartner states, “Translating IT security practices and copying IT security technology will not result in a secure operational technology (OT) environment.”
By reading “7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers,” you’ll learn which questions to ask, why they matter, and be armed with follow-up guidance to make smarter decisions. Questions covered include:
- Does the Solution Provide Asset Discovery to Enable Operational Continuity and System Integrity?
- Does the Solution Detect and Alert on Known Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures?
- Does Your Solution Provide IT Support in Addition to OT?
- Does Your Solution Support Secure IT/OT Alignment?

Companies are facing more complex challenges than ever, requiring a variety of disciplines to come together to set a future vision and strategy. Historically, says Alec Binder, director, advisory at KPMG, these challenges have been treated as technology problems that can be solved simply by buying a better platform or solution.
However, as explained in Part 1 of this series on KPMG’s Technology Strategy and Selection (TSS) framework, that outlook often does not drive the outcomes or the value that companies are expecting. For large transformations, a business-driven, technology-support effort is becoming an imperative, not a nice-to-have. The modular approach of the TSS framework allows for the right services and business ideas to be brought in seamlessly and holistically — toward setting a future vision and choosing technology that truly drives change.
Create a transformation vision and an integrated technology roadmap to get started towards your goals.
As digital complexity increases, you’ve probably spent a lot of time making sure your customer-facing strategies and technologies are ready to meet the next challenge. And rightly so.
But what about your internal functions? Are your ERP, finance, HR, procurement and supply chain strategies ready? You may be asking some hard questions:
• How do I manage a large-scale transformation of my back office underpinned with the right technologies?
• Is my technology strategy truly aligned to meet my business goals?
• What are other organizations doing to make the transition?
KPMG Technology Strategy and Selection gives you the tools to frame such decisions by working with you to develop a transformation strategy that’s based on your organization’s overarching business needs. One that will diminish some of the noise of disruption by helping you see what’s coming--while focusing on an integr

Leading manufacturers and retailers are embracing new technologies to source and collaborate with suppliers of direct materials.
The diversity and bureaucratic nature of government agencies have complicated communication for decades. But today digital technologies offer a path to connectivity and information sharing that could help break the gridlock. Innovative mobile and field force automation (FFA) technologies are helping state and federal government agencies break down the walls that hindered cooperation and decision making between offices and field personnel.
This document is designed to help ensure that your mobile device platform selection and processes provide the power, reliability, and flexibility you need to achieve your mission — in the office, in the field, or ten flights up in the air.

All organizations should aspire to have the people, processes, and tools necessary to effectively execute an on-going penetration testing program. Failure to do so may result in poor tool selections, testing mistakes, and faulty interpretation of results that often lead to a false sense of security putting the enterprise at risk. IT security and audit staff, along with their managers and directors, should read this paper to clarify and misunderstandings about penetrating testing - from the true purposes and goals, to important process considerations, to tools and tester selection issues, and finally to safe and effective ethical hacking approaches.
