The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-06-13T22:23:51Z A video is worth a thousand images: Warrp first to innovate with introduction of video listing option 2021-06-13T22:23:51Z a-video-is-worth-a-thousand-images-warrp-first-to-innovate-with-introduction-of-video-listing-option MELBOURNE, Victoria, June 14, 2021 - Australia’s inventive new online marketplace, Warrp, has introduced a video listing feature that allows users to post their pre-owned items for sale using a short video. No longer are Warrp users solely reliant on static images to buy or sell a product, with the video feature set to unleash user creativity unlike anything seen in online classified or marketplace platforms before. Warrp Co-Founder and CEO, Matthew Ng, said no other online classified or marketplace platform provided users an option to sell their goods using video. “Video advertising is bread and butter for companies selling online, but when it comes to consumers selling their pre-owned goods direct to other consumers, this hasn’t been an option,” said Mr Ng. “Users can now list, describe and show off their items on Warrp using video they film themselves in any way they choose, providing a livelier and more engaging medium than imagery. “Videos convey so much information and they tell a story, so why not give our users the option to sell their goods this way?” Mr Ng said social channels such as TikTok and Instagram’s IGTV demonstrated the growing trend in consumer-made video content that today’s digital generation find appealing. “The video feature option is set to revolutionise the way people engage and shop on Warrp, and we’re proud to be the first online marketplace to incorporate this concept.” Warrp’s platform innovations continue with its release of the Daily Warrp Counter, which tracks the number of times a user values different items, known as Warrping. The Daily Warrp Counter is an industry-first model that gives users Loyalty Points that can be used to redeem Partner Offers and free transactions. Warrp Co-Founder and CTO, Roman Granovskyi, said Warrp’s unique selling point was driven by its dynamic crowd and community valuation system, a system further enhanced by the Daily Warrp Counter. “The Daily Warrp Counter keeps track of your Warrping activity, with up to three accomplishment levels rewarded per day,” said Mr Granovskyi. “Firstly, users receive an additional five Loyalty Points for their first Warrp of the day, or the first item they value. “Secondly, you can claim an additional twenty Loyalty Points for the first twenty Warrps in that day, points that can be stockpiled and redeemed. “And finally, for those who qualify for our recently launched Ultimate Warrper Program, you can Warrp a maximum of one hundred items in a day to receive a $5 credit to be spent through Warrp, which can earn you up to $155 a month or $1,825 in a year.” Visit the Warrp website to learn more about the Daily Warrp Counter and how to qualify for the Ultimate Warrper Program.

CyberArk now offers least privilege controls that span from the endpoint to the cloud on AWS Marketplace. and CyberArk Workforce Identity on Amazon Web Services Marketplace (AWS Marketplace). CyberArk now offers least privilege controls that span from the endpoint to the cloud on AWS Marketplace. Migrating workloads to the cloud is a top priority for many organisations. This trend, coupled with the need to securely support increasingly remote workforces, has created new challenges – particularly for protecting against increasingly identity-centric attacks. AWS customers can now easily access even more of CyberArk’s Identity Security SaaS-based offerings, which deliver greater deployment flexibility and simplicity, along with rapid time to value and risk reduction. CyberArk’s Identity Security offerings allow AWS customers to remove excessive privileges and permissions on endpoint devices, servers and throughout their cloud environments. Removing unnecessary privileges helps organisations disrupt the attack path by limiting lateral movement and stopping privilege escalation. Specifically: CyberArk Cloud Entitlements Manager is the industry’s first privilege-based, artificial intelligence-powered service designed to strengthen the security of cloud environments by identifying and removing excessive cloud permissions, and mitigating the risks related to permission sprawl or privilege abuse. Additionally, Cloud Entitlements Manager recently introduced capabilities allowing customers to onboard and analyse IAM permissions across their entire AWS Organisations service. Cloud Entitlements Manager customers can now easily connect accounts and organisational units within their AWS Organisations to identify and remediate excessive IAM permissions in specific AWS accounts. CyberArk Endpoint Privilege Manager is a critical component for securing endpoints, especially in modern remote work models. It removes barriers to enforcing least privilege and allows organisations to block and contain attacks at the endpoint to reduce the risk of information being stolen or encrypted and held for ransom. CyberArk Workforce Identity helps secure remote workforces by proactively protecting users' access to cloud and on-premises applications, endpoints, VPNs and other critical resources. Workforce Identity features Single Sign-On, adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication and Lifecycle Management capabilities. “Embracing cloud, remote work and other digital transformation initiatives cannot be a tradeoff with security,” said Clarence Hinton, chief strategy officer, CyberArk. “There are clear use cases here that organisations need to address, and they need the tools that allow them to securely meet their business objectives. With expanded access to CyberArk Identity Security solutions, AWS customers can move forward with confidence, reducing excessive permissions and containing threats before they negatively impact the business.” CyberArk offerings already on AWS Marketplace include CyberArk Privileged Access Manager, CyberArk Privilege Cloud, CyberArk Conjur Open Source and CyberArk Privileged Access Manager for GovCloud (US).

Global organisations of all sizes can benefit from CyberArk’s comprehensive, flexible set of cloud-delivered products and shared services to achieve an unmatched Zero Trust-based approach to protecting human and machine identities. Digital transformation and cloud migration initiatives continue to accelerate, and as a result, attackers are now targeting a quickly expanding attack surface, where any user can have some level of privileged access. Identity is at the center of the attack path. According to the Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), 94 percent of organisations have experienced an identity-related breach at some point. Organisations must evolve their cybersecurity programs by taking a security-first, least privilege view of identity-related risk to help eliminate security gaps. Centered on privileged access management, the CyberArk Identity Security Platform provides customers with a unified and holistic approach to securing access for any user, across any type of application or system, from anywhere, using any device. New Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings introduced today include: CyberArk Dynamic Privileged Access: Drastically reduces risk of standing access by provisioning just-in-time access to hybrid and cloud workloads, starting with Windows and Linux Virtual Machines. Dynamic Privileged Access also includes full audit capabilities, providing insight into exactly who accessed what and when. Only CyberArk secures both standing and dynamic access across hybrid and multi-cloud environments while enforcing least privilege controls. CyberArk Secure Web Sessions: Adds additional layers of security to high-risk browser-based applications access via continuous monitoring, re-authentication enforcement and isolation of malicious processes originating on user devices. Secure Web Sessions enables enterprises to record and audit risky user behavior within any web application while maintaining a frictionless user experience. CyberArk Lifecycle Management for Privileged Users: An expansion of existing capabilities, customers can now further expedite employee onboarding, including those with privileged access, and meet audit and compliance mandates more efficiently. Lifecycle Management for Privileged Users integrates with existing solutions or can work with HR-driven identity management solutions, providing further flexibility to enterprises. “CyberArk is a critical component of our Identity and Access Management strategy, which enables us to deliver on our company’s digital transformation goals,” said Tony DeAngelo, assistant vice president, information security, Encova Insurance. “And like many organisations, we’re becoming more cloud-oriented, causing our CyberArk footprint to continue to grow and evolve as managing Identity Security and privileged access for our organisation and partner organisations becomes even more vital.” New Cloud-Native Shared Services Streamline Operations and Reduce Risk The CyberArk Identity Security Platform’s new cloud-native shared services are available to customers running CyberArk software on-premises, in their own clouds, or managed by CyberArk. Shared services include: A unified identity management, authentication and authorisation layer enabling enterprises to scale the protection of identities with a unified administrator experience AI-powered Identity Security analytics uniting user behavior and privileged threat analytics to enable customers to detect and respond to potential security incidents more quickly An integrated Identity Agent to provide robust Zero Trust controls on endpoints with strong identity assurance via adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), least privilege and session protection API-first design enabling easy integration of third-party applications into the CyberArk Identity Security Platform “CyberArk’s strong SaaS portfolio gives customers the flexibility to rapidly accelerate their Identity Security strategies while delivering unmatched user experiences and streamlining operations,” said Chen Bitan, chief product officer, CyberArk. “CyberArk is the only Identity Security provider that can offer a truly integrated, holistic set of solutions in flexible deployment models that match customers’ preferences – from hybrid to SaaS.​” As part of its Identity Security Platform, CyberArk also introduced Conjur Cloud, a SaaS-based version of its Conjur secrets management solution. Conjur simplifies securing secrets used by software development pipelines and across entire application portfolios. Dynamic Privileged Access and Secure Web Sessions will be generally available by the end of the year. Conjur Cloud and expanded Lifecycle Management capabilities for Privileged Users will be available in 2022.

Subscription revenues were $140.1 million, an increase of 33% compared to the same period last year.GAAP operating loss was $73.9 million, compared to a GAAP operating loss of $5.6 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP operating income was $7.0 million, compared to a non-GAAP operating income of $14.9 million for the same period last year.GAAP net loss was $100.4 million, compared to a GAAP net loss of $14.8 million for the same period last year.

Non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.07, compared to non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.20 for the same period last year.Operating cash flows and adjusted free cash flows were positive $32.1 million and $29.8 million, respectively.See the section titled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliation tables below for important information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures used by Coupa.Business Outlook:The following forward-looking statements reflect Coupa’s expectations as of June 7, 2021.Second quarter of fiscal 2022:Total revenues are expected to be $162.0 to $163.0 million.Subscription revenues are expected to be $142.0 to $143.0 million.Professional services and other revenues are expected to be approximately $20.0 million.Non-GAAP loss from operations is expected to be $2.0 to $3.0 million.Non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share is expected to be $0.05 to $0.07 per share.Basic and diluted weighted average share count is expected to be approximately 73.5 million shares.Full year fiscal 2022:Total revenues are expected to be $681.0 to $684.0 million.Non-GAAP loss from operations is expected to be $2.0 to $7.0 million.Non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share is expected to be $0.14 to $0.20 per share.Basic and diluted weighted average share count is expected to be approximately 74.0 million shares.Coupa has not reconciled its expectations for non-GAAP loss from operations to GAAP loss from operations, or non-GAAP net loss per share to GAAP net loss per share, because certain items excluded from non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss, such as charges related to stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, gain or loss on conversion of convertible senior notes, and related tax effects, including non-recurring income tax adjustments, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time. In addition, the effect of the anti-dilutive impact of the capped call transactions entered into in connection with the company’s offerings of convertible notes in 2018, 2019 and 2020, respectively, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time. The effect of these items may be significant.Recent Business Highlights:Welcomed many new customers into the Coupa community in Q1, including the following: A Lassonde Inc., Abzena, Acino Pharma, Adevinta, Aileron Therapeutics, American Cybersystems, Apogee Enterprises, Boels Verhuur, Bridgewater Associates, Catalyst Housing, Eagle Bancorp, Eisai Corporation, Flagstone Foods, Frucor Suntory, Hamburger Containerboard, Hopkins Public School District, J.B.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating (loss) income, non-GAAP net (loss) income, non-GAAP net (loss) income per basic and diluted share, and adjusted free cash flows. Coupa believes these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating its operating performance and Coupa’s management regularly reviews and uses these measures for business planning and other purposes.Non-GAAP operating (loss) income and non-GAAP net (loss) income exclude certain items from the corresponding GAAP measures, including: stock-based compensation expenses; amortization of acquired intangible assets; the change in fair value of contingent consideration related to an acquisition; amortization of debt discount and issuance costs; gain or loss on conversion of convertible senior notes; and related tax effects, including non-recurring income tax adjustments. In addition, the weighted average diluted shares figure used to calculate non-GAAP net income per share reflects the anti-dilutive impact of the capped call transactions entered into in connection with the company’s offerings of convertible notes.Adjusted free cash flows is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property and equipment, plus repayments of convertible senior notes attributable to debt discount. Coupa has the ability to settle obligations related to its senior notes through the use of cash, shares of its common stock, or a combination of both, at its election.Coupa believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and other users of its financial information because they provide a way to measure and evaluate Coupa’s underlying operating performance and the strength of its core business consistently across the periods presented. Coupa believes these non-GAAP measures are also useful for comparing its operating performance to that of other companies in its industry, because they eliminate the effects of certain items that may vary between companies for reasons unrelated to their operating performance. Coupa believes that adjusted free cash flows also provides a useful measure of the company’s capital strength and liquidity, although it is not intended to represent and should not be viewed as the amount of residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures.Coupa uses these non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance and liquidity, including the preparation of its annual operating budget and quarterly forecasts, to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies, and to communicate with its board of directors concerning its financial performance and liquidity. Coupa’s definitions of its non-GAAP measures may differ from those used by other companies for similarly-titled measures, and therefore comparability may be limited. In addition, other companies may not publish these or similar metrics. Thus, Coupa’s non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as substitutes for, or in isolation from, the company’s GAAP results.Coupa encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure, and to view its non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures. In addition, Coupa compensates for the limitations of its non-GAAP financial measures by providing a reconciliation of each non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These reconciliations are included in the tables attached to this release.Forward-Looking Statements:This release includes forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical facts, including the statements of management and statements in “Business Outlook,” are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on Coupa’s current expectations and projections about future events and trends that Coupa believes may affect its financial condition, results of operations, strategy, short- and long-term business operations and objectives, cash flows, liquidity and financial needs.These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may cause actual results to differ materially from those projected, including, without limitation: the uncertain impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; Coupa has a limited operating history at its current scale, which makes it difficult to predict its future operating results; if Coupa fails to manage its recent rapid growth effectively, Coupa may be unable to execute its business plan, maintain high levels of service, or adequately address competitive challenges; the impact of acquisitions on its business, such as integration issues, assumption of unknown or unforeseen liabilities and ability to retain customers; if Coupa is unable to attract new customers, the growth of its revenues will be adversely affected; because its platform is sold to large enterprises with complex operating environments, Coupa encounters long and unpredictable sales cycles; the markets in which Coupa participates are intensely competitive; Coupa’s business depends in part on its customers renewing their subscriptions and purchasing additional subscriptions; if Coupa fails to develop widespread brand awareness cost-effectively, its business may suffer; risks and liabilities related to breach of its security measures or unauthorized access to customer data; and the impact of foreign currency exchange rates and global economic conditions.These and other risks and uncertainties that could affect Coupa’s future results are included under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in Coupa’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 18, 2021, which is available at investors.coupa.com and on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Further information on potential risks that could affect actual results will be included in other periodic filings Coupa makes with the SEC.The forward-looking statements in this release reflect Coupa’s expectations as of June 7, 2021.

Optus Brings the Worlds of TV and Digital Closer Together with Amobee 2021-05-31T23:53:29Z optus-brings-the-worlds-of-tv-and-digital-closer-together-with-amobee SYDNEY, Australia, 1 June 2021 – Optus and Amobee, a global leader in advertising technology that unifies TV, digital and social to deliver results that drive customer growth, are pleased to announce that they will be further extending their strategic partnership to supercharge Optus’ digital video buying via the Amobee TV platform.The exclusive, multi-year extension comes off the back of the tremendous success and increased buying efficiency Optus has realised from utilising Amobee’s TV platform over the last 24 months. In addition to media buying, as part of the extension, Optus will be seeking to maximise value from TV and BVOD investments through use of Amobee’s proprietary analytics suite, including Advanced Footfall and TrueReach reporting, and Amobee’s CTV Allocator solution.Harnessing Amobee’s technology has given Optus greater accountability, visibility and control over buying decisions. Specifically, Optus was able to not only effectively extend audience reach from linear to CTV, but also measure household audiences to more accurately represent their actual audience reach (2.5x higher reach per impression). Further, Optus was also able to realise more competitive rate positions (24% decrease in CPM YoY) through a better understanding of their audience composition and network ROI attribution.While traditional TV buying varies considerably from programmatic buying, using digital technology that was built on TV principles allows not only Optus, but other brands and advertisers, to achieve true convergence of linear and digital channels. Amobee’s unique TV technology offers a future-proof solution optimised to today’s viewership behaviour.For Optus, the ability to understand total TV viewership and measure across all video channels is critical to their success. “As digital video becomes one of our key advertising mediums, we need a cross-screen delivery and measurement solution that will provide us with the ability to see the whole picture,” says Melissa Hopkins, Head of Marketing at Optus. “Amobee’s world-leading video platform and analytics suite has allowed us to bridge the gap between linear TV and digital so we could make smarter decisions across all our video buys.” Josif Zanich, Managing Director for Amobee Australia and New Zealand says the extension couldn’t have come at a more opportune time given how advertisers are actively searching for unified solutions across TV and digital. “We are thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with Optus,” he says. “Their success is evidence of our commitment to provide solutions that unify and empower TV and digital advertising strategies – from planning to activation, all the way to measurement and reporting.” Recognised as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Ad Tech and the Forrester New Wave™: Cross-Channel Video Advertising Platforms report, Amobee provides clients with solutions that drive results in any format, across any screen, to optimise reach across desired audiences and deliver desired business outcomes. Amobee unifies TV and digital to provide advertisers with advanced data management and media planning capabilities as well as actionable, real-time market research and proprietary audience data.

PMGS Custom Web Design  is a modern take on how custom websites have been made in the past.  Our lives today heavily revolve around the use of the internet. A Website is the most important part of the internet. We use websites for a wide variety of purposes like gaining information, education, social media, communication, research, watching videos and movies, using creative tools, gaming, trading, and even applying for jobs. There is a huge pool of websites on the world wide web and there are people who have created these websites. Professional Web Developers are responsible for the creation of websites and putting them on the web. The development process of a website is not simple. It is time consuming and takes a lot of skill. Before development could take place, a designer designs the look and feel of the website. This design needs to be in line with the theme of the business for customers to be familiar with the website and the business. For example, if McDonalds makes a website that is blue and pink in color instead of red and yellow, people will struggle to trust the credibility of the website and even to recognise the brand. Web Designer is equally as important as a website developer. They create the first impression of a website and design the flow of the website.  Websites can be created in two ways - 1. By Using a template. 2. Custom Web Design.  Here is a mythbuster for you, many people believe that having a custom built website is going to be extremely expensive and provide the same amount of value as the template base website. This is not true. A custom web design allows businesses to have the freedom of choosing what goes and does not need to go on their website. The idea of the business combined with the creativity of the web designer and efforts of the web developer can bring a fabulous website that is intuitive, user friendly, beautiful and aligned with the theme of the business.  PMGS Custom Web Design is also a combined effort between us and the business. You will be a vital part of the journey your website goes through. Unlike other website development companies, you will not simply receive the look of your website once it has been completed. Instead, with our custom web design, you will be informed and given the choice to choose what and how your website will flow. Award winning IP Firm FB Rice Launches Intranet Built on the Elcom Digital Employee Experience Platform 2021-05-25T00:41:56Z award-winning-ip-firm-fb-rice-launches-intranet-built-on-the-elcom-digital-employee-experience-platform FB Rice, a leading provider of intellectual property (IP) services in the Asia Pacific region, has launched their new intranet on the Elcom Digital Employee Experience Platform. The intranet, aptly named Compass, helps team members easily navigate the vast pool of information, and work better together to enhance their service offering, while also promoting a culture of superior service, industry excellence and the best people, underpinning everything FB Rice does.  As a patent and trademark firm working with hundreds of local and international clients, FB Rice has accumulated significant client related and technical knowledge. However, the firm did not have a system that could store this knowledge in a way that could easily be found.  Judy Ryan, Intranet Project Manager at FB Rice explains, “The nature of our business is to rely heavily on emailing colleagues for information. Various email groups are in place, but with the high volume of emails, messaging is often overlooked. We have a system where we manage all our cases and associated files. However, because it's a typical filing system, we can’t create contextually relevant and user-friendly pages and communities around these files. We needed a repository to share and leverage knowledge, in an easy to use and visually attractive way. We also wanted to support the continuation of the collaborative culture at FB Rice.  A new modern intranet would help improve internal communications and efficiency in the firm, while also fostering a sense of community among our staff who work across multiple offices.”  After a thorough search, FB Rice selected the Elcom Digital Employee Experience Platform. Elcom’s out-of-the-box intranet had all the modules FB Rice required, while offering the flexibility to personalise the design. Josh Anstey, Customer Solutions Director at Elcom, describes the process, “It was fantastic working with the FB Rice team. They had a clear vision on how they wanted to improve their employee experience, efficiency and access to information with the Elcom Platform. The FB Rice team was focused and committed to delivering a quality solution to empower and support its national and agile team members.”  Compass, the new intranet, provides timely and contextual information and communication, centrally housed for staff to access anywhere, at any time. This includes the various communities of practice, the FB Rice board, and other initiatives.   Judy Ryan further explains, “There is an increasing realisation by staff of Compass’ potential and how it can assist in the management of their accumulated knowledge for easy access to department resources. More and more staff are contacting the project to talk about how it can better work for their committees or technical departments.  We are slowly building a database of information that is both easy to find, easy to read and visually attractive.”  Key benefits experienced by the FB Rice team:  Streamlined knowledge management. The intranet is integral to knowledge management through improved access to and control of information, sharing of knowledge, and the connection between staff to drive improved practices. Departments can add information relevant to their technology and specialist area, such as a new Country and Jurisdiction area with content on patents, trademarks, designs, fees, charges and contacts for each country.   Supports a single source of truth. Compass supports the idea of a single source of truth, so files can be uploaded in one place and then shared across multiple sections of the intranet. The homepage, for example, dynamically updates to display content from other sections including the latest news. Federated search also pulls in results from the FB Rice public website, so there is no need to double handle information.   Improved communication and processes. Compass offers processes and workflows to enhance the service offering from FB Rice and provides a new, more efficient channel for communication. With information in one place staff do not have to rely on emailing colleagues. For example, Standing Instructions provides instructions on how to work with any given client on day-to-day and non-standardised transactions including contact and billing preferences. The main support areas that manage this content would normally spend valuable time sending out directions after someone requests it by email. There is now an easy place for people to access the information immediately without waiting for a response. If instructions need to be updated, staff can fill in an online form on Compass asking for it to be updated.     Supports performance and development. During COVID-19, training was accessed at a higher degree than in the pre- COVID-19 era, and several staff members were engaged in training. With Compass, FB Rice staff can easily access training material. This includes past training presentations and webinar recordings, links, calendars, and other resources.   Fosters a sense of community. From the first and initial contact with the organisation through to ongoing interaction - the tone of voice, imagery, content and business processes supported through the intranet - reflects and supports the FB Rice culture and external key messaging. The firm can now share the latest news, as well as celebrate the social aspects of the firm, in an easy to find and visually appealing way.    For the full FB Rice Success Story, visit: https://hubs.li/H0NW0gD0 About FB Rice  FB Rice was established over 70 years ago, and to this day remains privately owned and is known as Australia’s leading independent intellectual property firm.

Having already connected over 12,000 Australians with online doctors and pharmacists since launching, Rosemary Health is bridging the gap by bringing quality care and best practice into the modern era. The asynchronous service allows patients to lodge a request online anytime and anywhere - no waiting rooms, no travel, and no appointments required. Through an online portal, patients can enquire with a qualified doctor about over 20 different medical concerns and rescript services, ranging from diabetes, acne, sleep issues, heartburn, migraines, menopause, and hair loss. The patient’s treatment plan is sent back to them online and medications are delivered direct to their door. How Rosemary Health works: Patients log onto www.rosemaryhealth.com.au; Select a concern, fill in a short questionnaire, & undertake an ID check; A doctor will send back a treatment plan and script within hours; Rosemary Health coordinates free shipping of medications straight to patients’ doors. Consult fees are $20 per visit, or $52 for the pill which will cover the patient for a year. These fees also allow the patient access to ongoing care and unlimited follow-ups with their doctor. “At Rosemary Health, we’re not looking to replace doctors visits. We know that they are necessary and important for a number of reasons. We are, however, looking to simplify the process for patients who have either been assessed previously and need a rescript, or are looking for a convenient and private way to enquire about sensitive issues that don’t require a physical assessment,” says Rosemary Health co-founder, Dr Ai Nhi Bui. “We’ve already seen our service make a big impact across Australia with over 12,000 users connecting to the platform. 35% of those were regionally based and the other 65% from metropolitan areas. The convenience of Rosemary Health is perfect for those who are busy and need treatment plans on their own schedule and also those in regional communities that may not have a doctors office or pharmacy in close proximity,” says Rosemary Health CEO & founder, Romain Bonjean. Rosemary Health is at the forefront of digital healthcare in Australia. No waiting rooms, no appointment times, just convenient service on the patient’s own terms. www.rosemaryhealth.com.au -ENDS- IT professionals in ANZ resist implementing emerging tech due to cost and lack of business objectives 2021-05-23T23:17:54Z it-professionals-in-anz-resist-implementing-emerging-tech-due-to-cost-and-lack-of-business-objectives Emerging technologies bring the potential for increased efficiencies, cost savings and improved security for enterprises but complexities in adoption have been revealed in a new global survey report from ISACA, The Pulse: Emerging Technology 2021. Businesses in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) are being hampered when it comes to implementing emerging technology, with 72% of IT professionals citing cost of implementation as a top reason for resistance, followed by 49% who indicate unclear business objectives as holding them back from implementation and 46% who cite cybersecurity risk.“When business objectives are clear and risk is appropriately assessed and managed, emerging technologies can bring transformative benefits to an organisation,” says Dustin Brewer, ISACA senior director, emerging technology and innovation.This inaugural survey, which gathered responses from 4,541 professionals around the world, first assessed how respondents define emerging technology. The top three characteristics classifying a technology as emerging, per global respondents, are technologies with significant disruptive capabilities, technologies with significant problem-solving capacity, and technologies that are recent discoveries.In ANZ, the top emerging technologies in use at enterprises are Cloud 55%, AI 21% and the Internet of Things (IoT) 18%. The main motivation for adopting these and other emerging technologies include: Anticipated cost savings 78% New revenue stream 54% Improved cybersecurity 53% The ability to reach new customers 51% To meet regulatory requirements 47% Increased agility 46% Leadership Support and Key MotivationsThe survey findings also revealed that senior leadership generally supports emerging technology adoption, with 78% of respondents in ANZ indicating that their leadership provides moderate to very receptive support.“As the survey findings show, there are varying levels of adoption depending on the technology, but signs are that leadership is keeping a close eye on technologies, including IoT and blockchain, to consider for future use if not already implemented,” adds Brewer.Training is Important but LackingGlobally, 91% of respondents agree that training and continuous education are essential for technology professionals, with 81% indicating they would like to specifically pursue more training on cloud technologies, and 69% expressing moderate-to-high interest in training for AI. While 60% of respondents in ANZ are optimistic about the impact of technological advancements on their career, half report their organisation is not investing in people skills to successfully navigate the changing tech landscape. The global findings indicate that leadership is aware of this issue, as 48% of the respondents identifying as executive leadership agree that investment in training is insufficient. “Prioritising people and investing in emerging technology training is key to not only achieving success with technology implementation but also ensuring the workforce has the cutting-edge skills needed in today’s evolving tech landscape,” says David Samuelson, ISACA CEO. The new report offers further insights into how global IT and business professionals view the benefits, risks, adoption barriers, knowledge gaps, and leadership’s willingness to adopt new tech.

Small and Wide Data Allow More Robust Analytics and AI Small data is an approach that requires less data but still offers useful insights. The approach includes certain time-series analysis techniques or few-shot learning, synthetic data, or self-supervised learning.  Wide data enables the analysis and synergy of a variety of small and large, unstructured, and structured data sources. It applies X analytics, with X standing for finding links between data sources, as well as for a diversity of data formats. These formats include tabular, text, image, video, audio, voice, temperature, or even smell and vibration. “Both approaches facilitate more robust analytics and AI, reducing an organisation’s dependency on big data and enabling a richer, more complete situational awareness or 360-degree view,” said Mr Hare. “D&A leaders apply both techniques to address challenges such as low availability of training data or developing more robust models by using a wider variety of data.” Small and Wide Data Applications Potential areas where small and wide data can be used are demand forecasting in retail, real-time behavioural and emotional intelligence in customer service applied to hyper-personalisation, and customer experience improvement. Other areas include physical security or fraud detection and adaptive autonomous systems, such as robots, which constantly learn by the analysis of correlations in time and space of events in different sensory channels.
