The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-07-26T01:00:14Z Australia's mutual banks bear a heavy compliance burden following Royal Commission 2021-07-26T01:00:14Z australia-s-mutual-banks-bear-a-heavy-compliance-burden-following-royal-commission Australia has around 60 mutual financial institutions providing banking and related services to some 4.5 million Australians. These businesses range in size from less than $10 million in assets to over $16 billion. For many in the mutual banking sector the digital adoption process was already underway prior to the pandemic, enabling a much smoother, more agile, response, and helping to create efficiencies. However, the sector remains resource constrained and continually challenged by the rate and pace of regulatory change still flowing from the Banking Royal Commission and other sources.   This year alone we will see the commencement of:   ·                     new  design and distribution obligations commence October 5th, 2021  ·                     new internal dispute resolution systems commence requirements and systems (RG271 replacing RG165)   ·                     the introduction of a deferred sales model for add-on insurance commence  ·                     changes to anti-hawking provisions, and   ·                     a new breach reporting regime. commence October 1st, 2021  The challenge for the sector is how to triage these requirements along with, or on top of, ongoing compliance programs. This challenge is being dealt with against a background of internal constraints including tight compliance budgets, lack of skilled resources, managing and motivating remote workers, and maintaining a compliance culture in our organisations. GRC Solutions has released their first Financial Services Benchmarking Report. The aim of the report is to provide a view into the current state of compliance in the sector, understand where the current pressures are in the market and where there are opportunities for collaboration and improvement, and to provide a baseline from which the industry can grow compliance capability.

Linktree enables creators, brands, artists, publishers, agencies, and businesses of all sizes to curate an online ecosystem and monetise their passion, instantly guiding their audience to the destinations they care about. Holding 90 per cent of the market share, the platform is used by the likes of TikTok, Selena Gomez, Red Bull, Metallica, Facebook, the Los Angeles Clippers, Jessica Alba, Comedy Central, and HBO. “Since Linktree launched in 2016, we’ve grown exponentially, with 15 million global users and 30 thousand sign ups per day,” said Rosyll Xavier, Head of Data at Linktree. “The volume of data being generated has increased alongside this growth and we saw the need to develop a comprehensive data management strategy.” Xavier said during 2020, it became clear to senior management that the database being used by the company was no longer up to the task. To set the company up for scale, Linktree realised the need for a scalable, sophisticated data platform to best support its growth moving forward. “When we looked for solutions, Snowflake stood out because it offers more than just single-workload capabilities,” said Xavier. “The fact that it is actually a Data Cloud means it is now easier for us to ingest, transform, and analyse data using just Snowflake’s platform.” Linktree began by using Snowflake to support its business intelligence activities. They scoured usage data for trends to ensure that strategic decisions were being based on an accurate picture of what was occurring in the market. “We then built analytics to give our customers a better view and control over how their audience was engaging with their Linktree. Snowflake played a key role in helping us deliver near-real-time data so customers were always provided the most accurate picture possible.” Xavier said the next step was to use Snowflake as the supporting platform for a self-service BI offering for internal stakeholders. Rather than needing to rely on an analytics team, internal stakeholders would create queries and get their reports in an automated, self-served way. “Having all data in a single location makes our BI capabilities very sophisticated,” said Xavier. “Previously we were being held back by having data in various silos, however, this is no longer a problem for us with Snowflake’s single, integrated platform.” Xavier said the new self-service capabilities now in place are allowing other parts of the business to make more use of data. “For example, our growth team is also increasing their use of data to support and better inform business decisions. This can ensure that our product roadmap is always closely aligned to our customer’s real-world requirements.” Linktree can now leverage Snowflake’s Secure Data Sharing capabilities seamlessly and securely, which had previously not been possible. For Linktree’s users, the analytics platform is powered by Snowflake. Brands, creators, and entrepreneurs can easily query their own data and get insights into a range of factors to help inform their social media strategy, or simply understand their audience better. “Snowflake is a valuable component of our IT infrastructure. It enables us to manage our growing data volume and extract as much business value from it as possible.” About SnowflakeSnowflake enables every organization to mobilise their data with Snowflake's Data Cloud. Customers use the Data Cloud to unite siloed data, discover and securely share data, and execute diverse analytic workloads.

Why choosing the right technology stack is key for your business strategy 2021-07-22T10:12:36Z why-choosing-the-right-technology-stack-is-key-for-your-business-strategy In today's digital world there is a endless supply of different software and platforms to accomplish everything from eCommerce to accounting and project management. What is a technology stack? A technology stack refers to the collection of different software/systems used within a business an example of a stack could be: MYOB for accounting, WordPress for a blog, WooCommerce for an online shop, Microsoft Office 365 for email and a CRM such as Hubspot to manage contacts and other business information. Choosing the right tools is important to ensure you get the best functionality for the best price and that it is scalable for when your business grows and needs to adapt. Choose the wrong frameworks and scaling can become cumbersome and expensive as time is wasted reducing overall productivity. Technology stacks are also used in programming/software development and involve selecting frameworks and programming languages to write software and are critical in developing solid reliable programs. For example certain languages are far more suitable for specific tasks like the language Django which can be used to build web applications whilst other frameworks like Swift are designed to build mobile apps for iOS. Factors to consider when choosing a technology stack for your organization: Project scope & size The first thing you need to consider is the size of your project and scope of requirements. This will enable you to plan out the size of your application and what factors need to be considered for it to achieve it's intended goals.Scalability As your business changes direction or grows in size so does your computing & I.T needs which is why careful planning is key. This involves checking the features of the software and if it has provisions to expand in size and accommodate potential aspects of future business plans. Software model - Cloud or on-premise hosting & off the shelf or custom Another thing to consider is whether you want to host the software internally or if it would be more convenient to have it hosted in the cloud. Cloud options otherwise known as SaaS or IaaS platforms offer pay as you go subscriptions which can be easy to setup and don't require maintenance as they are looked after by a third party. On-premise software also offers advantages such as the ability to self-host and control the data and make changes to the software if needed in some cases however requires maintenance. Lastly depending on your needs you may be able to simply select an off the shelf product or consider developing custom software for your business requirements.

Daytime and night-time temperatures typically only vary 5-10 degrees Celsius! + 40% of all reef visitation comes through the Whitsundays - the “Heart of the Reef”. Lee Hawkins, Project Officer for the Healthy Heart program in the Whitsundays Climate Change Innovation Hub, said that partnering with EarthCheck was an exciting opportunity for the Whitsundays Region. She said, “This is a collaborative four-year project, focussing on marine tourism operators in the first year with plans to expand further in following years.” “We will be working with EarthCheck and other world-leading destinations to share ideas and learn how we can more effectively address key destination challenges associated with development, planning and marketing.” Stewart Moore, Founder and CEO of EarthCheck said great destinations are built on a strong vision and an ability to harness the collective passion of local industry and community. “EarthCheck has been working with businesses, communities and governments across the globe for the past 30 years to deliver clean, safe, prosperous and health destinations for travellers to visit, live, work and play.” “Leading destinations do not happen without commitment and engagement at all levels – from government and industry to local partners and communities.” The program provides the Whitsunday’s with access to a wide range of destination and planning resources which includes access to a rapid destination appraisal, destination certification for 3 years, business toolkits for tourism operators and a tourism carbon footprint tool.    EarthCheck is supported by the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), the APEC International Centre for Sustainable Tourism (AICST), the not-for-profit EarthCheck Research Institute and is aligned with the aims of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC).

Digivizer improves accuracy about traffic to websites by removing inherent bias of platforms 2021-07-22T04:18:19Z digivizer-improves-accuracy-about-traffic-to-websites-by-removing-inherent-bias-of-platforms Sydney - 22 July 2021  - Digivizer has added a new feature - called Traffic Source - to its real-time digital analytics platform that fixes the inherent bias embedded in the accuracy of the classifications in the data provided by Google. The insights, and the new feature, are the result of six months of development work by Digivizer. "Because we measure and analyse the performance of all the major social media platforms, Google and YouTube, and compare where traffic - leads, customers and converted sales - comes from, we discovered inconsistencies across the claims around attribution," said Emma Lo Russo, founder and CEO of Digivizer. "This bias is not helpful to digital marketing and sales teams, directors and CEOs. In particular, smaller companies don't have the resources or expert knowledge needed to work through these inconsistencies.  "What they need are accuracy and impartiality. "The Digivizer team has improved Google Analytics' accuracy in determining the source of traffic to websites. We have invested in a live classification engine that has been trained and validated by internal and external data specialists. As a result, the accuracy about the source of a click-through to a website is now 99%.   "And now we've made this automated classification available on our platform." Digivizer estimates that the original accuracy was 37%. This level of uncertainty was compounded when attempting to compare sources with social media platforms. Businesses can now see exactly where visitors to their websites, and those transacting there, have come from, with an accuracy that has improved by about 168%. Insights also include where people have come from before transacting - for example,  visiting a page, completing a goal, or making an ecommerce sale. Also clearer are whether these are new or known customers, and the numbers converting. Multiple goals and conversions can be sorted by importance, so that performance can also be compared across sources such as social media channels, search, or email. “Businesses deserve accurate data that makes sense, is affordable and accessible," said Emma Lo Russo. "Having to spend ridiculous amounts of time or dollars for reports that are difficult to understand and often late is unacceptable. "We remove complexity, guess work, expense and delays, improve accuracy, and add accountability to digital marketing and sales data, and do all of this in real-time. Everything Digivizer does helps businesses make every dollar and hour of investment work harder in delivering sales.” John Ullo, Founder of Elvie, an online personalized jewellery business said, "Before moving to Digivizer I had looked at other analytics tools, but they were overly complicated to use or lacked key information. "With Digivizer, I can see exactly what potential buyers are searching for, the content and campaigns capturing their interest, what is driving my engagements, conversions and costs, all in the one platform.   "We have saved time in being able to quickly grow sales, and the return on advertising spend.  The ability to easily explore, investigate and test proves the value of insights driving our strategy, investment and returns."

Twitter: @alansmithoz Fastly Launches New Era of Highly-Secure Serverless JavaScript With Zero Cold Starts 2021-07-22T02:18:35Z fastly-launches-new-era-of-highly-secure-serverless-javascript-with-zero-cold-starts Sydney – July 22, 2021 -- Fastly, Inc. (NYSE: FSLY), a global edge cloud platform provider, today announced the availability of JavaScript in Compute@Edge, allowing developers to build with even more flexibility in Fastly’s serverless compute environment. With more JavaScript developers in the world than there are for any other development language, the availability of a faster, more secure way of building with JavaScript brings Compute@Edge’s safety benefits and speedy execution to more workloads around the globe. “When we launched Compute@Edge with a language-agnostic vision, JavaScript wasn’t one of the languages we evaluated for support, because at the time, it couldn’t compile to WebAssembly, meaning we wouldn’t have been satisfied with the security of JavaScript within our serverless compute environment,” said Tyler McMullen, CTO at Fastly. “However, since we released Compute@Edge, JavaScript has been the most requested language to add, so it was top of our priority list once WebAssembly supported it. Today, we’re thrilled to open up a serverless, zero-cold start JavaScript offering with a reduced attack surface, compared to similar offerings on the market. With serverless computing on the rise, we hope this motivates continued adoption of a powerful technology for businesses as they build modern digital experiences.” For years, JavaScript developers have had to navigate ~250+ milliseconds of startup latency in serverless environments. Known as cold starts, this latency delays request processing, slowing down time-sensitive applications and websites. To compensate for these delays, developers have tried adding more functions into a single serverless deployment, leading to increased security risks due to a larger blast radius for attacks. Combined with some alternative platforms’ lack of proper sandboxing between instances, serverless JavaScript has fallen prey to attackers, and developers have either avoided serverless technology or had to accept the shortcomings in safety and speed. Fastly solves for both of these challenges through key architectural decisions made when Compute@Edge was initially built. Instead of relying on existing technologies for serverless compute - like reusable containers - Fastly built Compute@Edge using WebAssembly. This high-performance technology allows Compute@Edge to scale with startup times that are 100x faster than other serverless offerings on the market, so customers can now execute JavaScript code without having to worry about cold start times. With security in mind, Fastly developed a unique, highly-secure isolation technology that creates and destroys a sandbox for each individual request from JavaScript compiled through WebAssembly. “JavaScript is the most popular programming language today by a distance, continuing to grow and find new niches," said James Governor, analyst and co-founder at RedMonk. “Serverless platforms are a natural home for new JavaScript workloads. Performance and security remain key concerns, and speed is a killer feature. A reduced attack surface and no cold starts is likely to be attractive to modern web developers." Fastly has been laser focused on enhancing the developer experience for Compute@Edge and also recently announced its local testing environment, allowing developers to run test code with production level parity so they can find and fix issues fast while building for scale and performance within a serverless compute environment. To try serverless JavaScript with more speed and security, sign up for Compute@Edge for more information. About Fastly Fastly helps people stay better connected with the things they love.

The company is positioned as a Leader for the second consecutive time in just its third recognition in this report. As per the Gartner report, “Leaders have the highest combined measures of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. They have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolios. They have a proven track record of established market presence and financial performance. For vision, they are perceived in the industry as thought leaders and intellectual property (IP) creators, and have well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth.”* In the report, Gartner defines enterprise backup and recovery solutions as those “designed to capture a point-in-time copy (backup) of an enterprise workload and write the data out to a secondary storage device for the purpose of recovering this data in case of loss.”** “We believe being named a Leader in this report speaks to Cohesity’s success in delivering next-gen data management, which starts with helping organisations protect their data and rapidly recover from ransomware attacks – critically important in today's world, " said Lynn Lucas, chief marketing officer, Cohesity. "Couple that with the ability to easily backup, recover, and manage data across a host of use cases – in the data centre, edge, cloud, or through as a service, all on one platform – that is radical simplicity at its best.” Innovations That Solve Critical Customer Pain Points Cohesity has maintained a rapid pace of innovation, focusing on building and delivering solutions that make data management simple to do and easy to scale while protecting data from ransomware attacks. Key breakthroughs introduced this year include: Recovery and Protection From Ransomware: Organisations such as Sky Lakes Medical are benefitting from the tremendous value that Cohesity DataProtect delivers to customers via the company’s multicloud data platform. Sky Lakes found Cohesity’s immutable backup snapshots, WORM, and other built-in protections especially valuable when the organisation was hit by a massive ransomware attack late in 2020. Cohesity’s solutions helped Sky Lakes recover quickly from the ransomware attack – potentially helping to save lives – without requiring the company to pay a penny of ransom. Backup as a Service (Baas): Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service is a SaaS offering that gives customers another easy way to ensure their on-premises and cloud-based data is backed up and protected. In just six months, Cohesity has expanded the workloads protected with this offering to include: Microsoft Exchange Online, OneDrive, SharePoint Online, and Teams, VMware, SQL Server, Amazon EC2 virtual instances and compute infrastructure and Amazon RDS cloud databases. Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service is available in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Automated Disaster Recovery: Cohesity SiteContinuity is integrated with the company’s snapshot-based backup, continuous data protection, and automated failover/failback orchestration capabilities – making it the only web-scale solution to protect applications across tiers, service levels, and locations on a single platform. This helps address enterprise concerns about losing data to ransomware attacks, natural disasters, and human error. It also allows strict SLAs to be met. Customer Quotes Highlighting the Value of Cohesity Solutions “Little did we know that Cohesity was going to literally rescue Sky Lakes from having to pay a ransom,” said John Gaede, director of information systems, Sky Lakes Medical Center. “The backup and recovery technology just flat-out worked. We ultimately recovered all of our servers, and Cohesity worked time and time again throughout that process.” “We were able to recover our clinical systems, and one of the first was for our cancer treatment centre,” said Sam Stewart, network systems analyst, Sky Lakes Medical Center. “Cancer doesn’t wait for anybody, and if patients are unable to get timely treatment, cancer will win that battle. So, you could argue, quite literally, that Cohesity saved lives in this instance.” “We chose Cohesity to protect our Microsoft 365 data because we are already using Cohesity DataProtect across our on-premises IT, and we can now benefit from the single pane of glass analytics, reporting, and monitoring provided by the Cohesity Helios platform, without having to invest in additional infrastructure,” said Peter Hughes, head of IT, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust. "Cohesity helps us deliver a simple, yet more capable backup and recovery operation for our hospitals and healthcare services. No matter where the data resides, Cohesity can give us the protection and recovery we need." “The day-to-day operational data that we manage in healthcare is too important to rely only on the backup capabilities delivered by key SaaS providers such as Microsoft Exchange Online and OneDrive,” said Curt Kwak, CIO, Proliance Surgeons. “We are happy with Cohesity helping us to broaden this capability. Cloud services and Cohesity give us peace of mind that we can easily recover not only mailboxes but individual files quickly and at scale whenever we need them, without limitations.” Cohesity was also recently recognised as a Customers’ Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions report (January 2021). Cohesity was the only vendor recognised as a Customers’ Choice Distinction Vendor in 10 of 11 Category Cut Documents, including Global Enterprises ($10 billion-plus USD revenues), Large Enterprises ($1 billion-$10 billion USD revenues), Midsize Enterprises ($50 million – $1 billion USD revenues), North America, Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Asia Pacific, Finance, Healthcare, Services, and Public Sector/Government/Education.
