New funding model to revolutionise Australia’s SaaS market 2017-06-26T05:30:54Z new-funding-model-to-revolutionise-australia-s-saas-market SYDNEY,22nd June 2017 - Australian finance company Multipli has launched the world’s first subscription prepayment funding model for software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies. Under this new funding arrangement, Multipli will finance subscription customers for the life of their contract, paying SaaS companies upfront for monies owed from subscription customers. SaaS start-ups face a constant cash flow battle as they build new technology, and fund marketing and customer service activities, with only monthly subscription payments from customers to fund their growth. The result of this inevitable cash flow trough is that many innovative technologies simply don’t get off the ground, or SaaS founders give up valuable equity in the early, formative years to venture capitalists. Multipli Managing Director John Delaney said the only way for Australia’s SaaS market to become truly competitive on a global scale was to develop viable options to fund the growth of “pay-as-you-use” technology companies. “Usage-based subscription models are rapidly becoming the way of the future for technology and software companies around the world, and Australian SaaS companies will be unable to compete if we don’t come up with new ways to ensure they can grow and innovate,” Mr Delaney said. “By funding customer subscription contracts and paying SaaS companies the full subscription amount up front, SaaS clients can fund their own growth from sales.” Through subscription pre-payment funding, Multipli finances full subscription contract and pays the SaaS company for the full cash amount of the contracted term. Multipli created the subscription pre-payment funding service eight years ago for one of Australia’s greatest SaaS success stories, LEAP Legal Software. LEAP Founder Christian Beck said without this pioneering funding method he would have been unable to achieve the great successes he has for LEAP and data search company InfoTrack. “Multipli has helped us fund over 5,250 individual client contracts, producing $122M of pre-payments since 2009. These prepayments fuelled the growth of both LEAP and InfoTrack,” Mr Beck said. “In 2009, we needed capital to take LEAP and InfoTrack into the next stages of growth, but we were pre-profit and could not borrow, and we were frustrated that we could not raise capital at a valuation we felt was worthwhile for existing shareholders,” he said. “Pre-payment via Multipli allowed us to bring our cash flow forward by approximately 18 months, giving us extra cash flow to build both LEAP and InfoTrack into dominant positions without any dilution to shareholders. This not only made shareholders wealthy it also allowed our employee share plan to perform exceptionally well. We have created many millionaires from employees of a relatively small software company.” Northern Territory Selects InterSystems to Implement Single Digital Medical Record for All Territorians 2017-06-26T05:00:41Z northern-territory-selects-intersystems-to-implement-single-digital-medical-record-for-all-territorians SYDNEY, June 26, 2017 – InterSystems, a global leader in health information technology, today announced that the Northern Territory Government (NTG) has chosen to implement InterSystems TrakCare® for its Core Clinical Systems Renewal Program (CCSRP). The selection of the InterSystems solution is the outcome of an open, competitive tender that was managed by the NTG Department of Corporate and Information Services. InterSystems TrakCare unified clinical information system will be implemented at every point of care across all public health facilities, including the five existing public hospitals, the new Palmerston Regional Hospital (to be completed in 2018), 54 remote health centres and all community-based health services, including the most remote locations of the 1.3-million-sq.-km. territory. Through this agreement, the Northern Territory will become the first Australian state or territory with a single system for all of its public healthcare sites. CCSRP is the “largest ever” IT reform in the Territory, according to health minister Natasha Fyles, and is designed to improve health outcomes for all Territorians by promoting efficiency, effectiveness and integration throughout the public healthcare system. InterSystems will deploy TrakCare on its HealthShare platform, and clinicians at remote locations – even if they have intermittent Internet access – will be able to use TrakCare to manage a cohort of patients on disconnected devices and upload changes when they regain connectivity. The Northern Territory Department of Health, or NT Health, aims to deliver better overall experiences for every Territorian through a single, end-to-end patient information system to coordinate care. The availability of a single record, with all relevant information provided to authorised users and clients, both at the point of care and for the planning and review of client care, is critical to consistent, high-quality care. “InterSystems is proud to support this major initiative to improve the public health system,” said Steve Garrington, vice president of international business for InterSystems. “Key to our partnership with NTG and future service excellence is the implementation of one information system suitable for hospitals, non-acute facilities and primary care centres. There will be challenges, with some very remote sites, which we look forward to overcoming though our long term engagement and collaboration with NT Health.” “InterSystems was selected as the preferred provider, among highly competitive international vendors, through a robust procurement process which was supported by a wider group of frontline NT Heath Staff,” said Associate Professor Nadarajah Kangaharan, Clinical Sponsor for the CCSRP. “As Australia’s first end-to-end fully integrated ICT solution, once implemented, it is expected to support a highly efficient, safe and quality healthcare delivery to Territorians with ability to monitor clinical outcomes.” About InterSystems InterSystems is the engine behind the world’s most important applications. In healthcare, finance, government, and other sectors where lives and livelihoods are at stake, InterSystems is the power behind what matters. Founded in 1978, InterSystems is a privately held company headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA), with offices worldwide, and its software products are used daily by millions of people in more than 80 countries.

Skillsoft partners with Australian law firm Jackson McDonald to expand global compliance coverage to meet the needs of Australian employees 2017-06-26T01:34:06Z skillsoft-partners-with-australian-law-firm-jackson-mcdonald-to-expand-global-compliance-coverage-to-meet-the-needs-of-australian-employees-5 Sydney, June 26th, 2017 Skillsoft, the global leader in eLearning, has partnered with Australian law firm Jackson McDonald to release a series of workplace compliance courses designed to address systemic problems employees and organisations continue to face with regards to workplace harassment. In a recent Safe Work Australia report[1], harassment and bullying claims represent 29 percent of mental stress claims in the workplace. According to another report on The Psychosocial Safety Climate and Better Productivity in Australian Workplaces[2], productivity losses associated with low levels of management commitment to psychological health and safety in the workplace cost employers around $6 billion per annum. “Workplace discrimination and misconduct continue to be a prevalent problem which must be addressed in the Australian workforce. We are pleased to partner with Skillsoft on this project to improve compliance within Australian workplaces,” said Renae Harding, Special Counsel at Jackson McDonald. The series of five short courses, which expands Skillsoft’s existing compliance training offering, cover key business risks around harassment and bullying, equal employment opportunity, and privacy. “We see a growing need for effective compliance training to address these critical issues and help reduce the employee strain, cultural deficit and financial burdens placed on these organisations. The lack of understanding around compliance-related issues, coupled with weak reference and training materials for companies to use, has led to a growing trend around workplace compliance claims,” said Melissa Ries, VP & GM Regional Sales, Australia at Skillsoft.   The courses, now available to Australian businesses, offer two distinct versions - one for managers and one for non-managers—ensuring materials apply to all levels of staff within an organisation. The material plays to Skillsoft’s fresh, modern take on key risk topics and newly designed compliance courseware to include appealing video, role play scenarios and material attestation and questionnaires, all of which provide greater engagement with the end user. The release of this new content further reinforces Skillsoft’s market leading position and commitment to deliver best-in-class learning experiences, while addressing the need for proper workplace compliance training.

[1] Psychological Health and Safety and Bullying in the Australian Workplaces (3rd Edition) [2] The Psychosocial Safety Climate and Better Productivity in Australian Workplaces: Cost, Productivity, Presenteeism, Absenteeism Syncdocs protects Google Drive with end-to-end encryption 2017-06-22T22:02:14Z syncdocs-protects-google-drive-with-end-to-end-encryption Recent hacks and phishing attacks against data stored in the Yahoo and Google cloud systems have again highlighted the need for proper security. When data are protected by a single access password any hacker gaining permissions can access everything. This can be prevented by encrypting the data at-rest. While some methods already exist to encrypt data at-rest for on-premises IT, Syncdocs is the first solution to provide fully automatic end-to-end encryption for Google Drive. Google currently only encrypts the Google Drive data while in transit. That means anyone who can hack the Google account, or a Google G-Suite administrator can access your Google Drive files. It is also all too easy to mistakenly share a file. Syncdocs is different: it encrypts Google Drive files locally, before they ever leave your PC, Mac or phone. This makes accessing data much harder for hackers. Fully encrypt Google Drive "Google holds the keys to their encryption solution, so it does not provide true protection, as they still have full access to your data. Any hacker compromising a Google or Yahoo account has full access." says customer Simon Fuller, CIO of Oxito Cloud Solutions, "With Syncdocs we own the keys, and no one else can access or spy on our data. This is essential for compliance." Files and folders are securely protected in the cloud with military-strength AES256 encryption. This is important for protecting corporate or customer data stored in the computing cloud. Regulations now demanding encryption The European Union General Data Protection Regulation enforces end-to-end encryption to protect EU citizens’ privacy rights. At the opening of the UK parliament yesterday, the Queen confirmed plans for a similar data protection law in the UK. For healthcare and legal professionals, the at-rest encryption provided by Syncdocs is needed when complying with government regulations like HIPAA for storing patient records. Syncdocs enhances Google Drive Syncdocs also offers many other enhancements to Google Drive, chiefly: * Multiple accounts can be used concurrently. This is especially useful for users with separate home and work Google accounts. * Folders are synced from anywhere on a PC or network, not just the single folder dictated by Google. * Syncdocs can easily be deployed in the enterprise with fully automated, scripted installations. * All Google data is backed up, even Google documents and spreadsheets. * Easy migration from Microsoft Office to Google Docs A short video shows these features in action. Those wanting better online security, or simply wishing to improve Google Drive, can grab a free evaluation copy of Syncdocs from https://syncdocs.com American Video Teleconferencing Corp.

Unique Hi-Fi and AV Show for lovers of hip-hop to classical and everything in between 2017-06-22T06:06:04Z unique-hi-fi-and-av-show-for-lovers-of-hip-hop-to-classical-and-everything-in-between Music and AV aficionados from Sydney and surrounds are in for a unique treat with the upcoming Australian Hi-Fi & AV Show from 28-30 July. Just for their pleasure, dozens of hotel rooms at the InterContinental at Circular Quay will be stripped bare so they emulate a family lounge room or home theatre setting. Nowhere else in Australia can music and AV lovers appreciate 150 major brands from the world's finest audio products in one place in such an appealing five-star location. BYO music is encouraged: from hip-hop to classical. It's the best way to relax, hear and compare preferred music choices in as natural a home environment as possible. Visitors to the show can get hands-on experience on all types of gear including speakers, electronics, turntables, headphones, music streamers and computer systems. Roy Bird, CEO of the Chester Group, the Show's organiser, said the top three things that music and AV lovers want to know at the moment is: how to stream quality audio and video; the real difference between analogue and digital sound; and how beneficial or not hi-fi cables are. "We know that visitors to the show care about the quality of sound reproduction and they want the best they can afford.

Recognising that new fertility patients are often overwhelmed by the wealth of information available, Monash IVF offers a free consultation with a trained nurse to talk to prospective patients. With 600 employees across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland and a large volume of enquiries which often need more than a single follow up, Monash wanted to provide an even better level of care to patients and prospective patients.        “Monash IVF has the leading IVF science and some of the highest baby take home rates in the world, but I wanted to make sure we could also continue to exceed our patient’s service and channel communication needs as well. We wanted a technology solution that would help our staff support patients – and potential patients - through what for many, is a daunting and emotional journey,” said Everard Hunder, Group Marketing Manager, Monash IVF.   Monash IVF reviewed a number of vendors in the CRM space but ultimately chose SugarCRM cloud software for its ease of implementation, functionality and security protocols.   “Monash IVF Group is a leading fertility research and treatment centre that is looking to help patients navigate through and understand a lot of different and often complicated information. We’re looking forward to supporting Monash IVF Group in connecting with and informing its patients and prospects about the life changing services that it offers, helping patients get the right information when they need it most,” said Mark Troselj, Vice President, APJ, SugarCRM.   Reseller CRM Strategy was involved in the deployment with SugarCRM.   “CRM Strategy is supporting Monash IVF with solution vision and design as well as deployment of SugarCRM software. Our team is very proud to have been part of the business transformation and discovery sessions, which led Monash IVF to think about a bigger CRM strategy for the organisation,” said Brett Cruickshank, CEO, CRM Strategy.About SugarCRMSugarCRM enables businesses to create extraordinary customer relationships with the most empowering, adaptable and affordable customer relationship management (CRM) solution on the market.

Dell Boomi’s Latest Release Builds on Cloud Integration Platform to Drive Digitally Connected Experiences with Customers, Partners and Suppliers 2017-06-21T04:31:56Z dell-boomi-s-latest-release-builds-on-cloud-integration-platform-to-drive-digitally-connected-experiences-with-customers-partners-and-suppliers ROUND ROCK, Texas, June 20, 2017 – Dell Boomi™ (Boomi) announced the availability of the Spring 2017 release of the industry’s most robust and comprehensive cloud-native, enterprise integration platform to move, manage, govern and orchestrate data across hybrid IT architectures. The latest release enables Boomi customers to more efficiently connect everything and enable everywhere, with new, no code application integration accelerators, new features to fortify DevOps at enterprise scale, and improve data governance and security. “Today’s enterprise organization needs to create digitally connected experiences with customers, partners, and suppliers in order to stay ahead of the competition and remain relevant,” said Chris McNabb, CEO of Boomi. “Integration teams are under ever increasing pressure to make this happen at an accelerated pace. With this release, our platform provides organizations with the industry’s most comprehensive and robust integration foundation for rapidly building a digital business that’s smarter, better and faster.” Boomi’s Spring 2017 release includes more than 150 features that have been added to the market-leading Boomi integration platform as a service (iPaaS) over several months and are now generally available. Highlights include the following. Low and No Code Integration Accelerators Boomi accelerates implementations by providing a drag-and-drop data integration and application development environment, pre-built tools and reusable components, including: Workflow Automation - In March 2017, Boomi acquired ManyWho, a low-code development platform for building and deploying workflow applications, making Boomi the most comprehensive cloud-native integration and application development platform to accelerate digital transformation. The latest release allows an application developer to easily invoke a Boomi integration process within a workflow. No Code, Pre-built Integration Templates - Boomi offers citizen integrator support with 12 additional processes for the Boomi Process Library. The Boomi Process Library provides proven examples created by Boomi experts that any Boomi user can choose as a starting point to build their integration. Support for PaaS Integration - Boomi easily integrates with leading PaaS vendors and provides comprehensive support for PaaS solution integration. This release offers new connectors for Azure, AWS and Google. B2B Trading Partner Common Components - Three new types of EDI components provide increased reusability of common data among Trading Partners. Re-using common components increases flexibility, reduces duplication and simplifies updates. This saves time and development effort, especially for organizations with varied businesses, organizations growing through acquisition, as well as conglomerates and organizations with semi-autonomous business units. Fortified DevOps Features DevOps teams are looking for the ability to simplify and automate the delivery and deployment of applications and integrations, allowing organizations to focus more of their resources on innovation. Boomi’s fortified DevOps features provide new, robust enterprise capabilities, while reducing the complexity associated with IT operations, including: Docker Container Deployment - Easily create pre-configured containers. Docker containers simplify and provide flexibility to spin up and down instances of Boomi with pre-defined configurations to increase developer productivity and speed up application integration. Programmatic Onboarding for Trading Partners - Simplifies and speeds up onboarding, dramatically reducing the time required from weeks and days to hours and making the setup error-free. Data Stewardship Independence - Four new platform Quarantine API endpoints enable resolution actions outside of Boomi Master Data Management (MDM). This means data stewards can work in other applications, including cloud applications like Slack, to streamline governance tasks and approvals. Dynamic Integration Processes - With Boomi’s Process Route Shape feature, users can break down multi-step processes into smaller, independent functional groups and dynamically execute sub-processes. This independence between the main process, sub-process, and routing rules enables reusability of repeated logic and actions, and facilitates seamlessly updating and testing integrations. Data Governance and Security Organizations need technologies that provide ease of use to accelerate digital initiatives, while offering appropriate controls for the business units they support. Customers need to enforce the right data governance and security models that ensure compliance with business policies, contracts and regulations. Boomi’s latest release includes: Automated Data Governance - Data source rankings ensure that each Boomi MDM golden record is from the most trusted source system and propagated across all systems. Data stewards can easily enforce governance policies with automatic updates to all golden records when the data model and associated business rules are changed. Identity Management - With Boomi API Management developers can now leverage third party Authentication Sources to support OAuth 2.0 and SAML authentication use cases. API Policy Management - With an unlimited number of API calls, an organization can be vulnerable to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and potentially overwhelm or tax the infrastructure. Boomi API Management allows for the configuration of policies to define a Contract. These Contracts can be coupled with entitlement tiers (i.e. Gold, Silver, or Bronze) as a mechanism for API providers to define expected service levels across their customer base. Additionally, with Quota, Rate Limit and Throttling functionality, the API Provider can limit the number of API calls for a specific time period.
