The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-06-22T21:04:29Z Reekoh launches US expansion with executive posting. 2021-06-22T21:04:29Z reekoh-launches-us-expansion-with-executive-posting BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA. June 23rd, 2021: Reekoh, the leader for integration of physical and digital assets, is embarking on their expansion to the US industrial market by relocating a key executive to drive existing business and set up a local presence. Chief Commercial Officer Steve Terry will be based in Houston, Texas for an initial period of three months from mid-July. His key priorities will be to work with existing customers and partners, establish relationships with the broader industrial ecosystem, with a view to then staffing a local office to continue servicing the US market.  Houston was chosen as the ideal landing pad for Reekoh because of its concentration of industrial customers in key segments such as Oil & Gas and Manufacturing, and how it can serve as an entry point for the broader mid-west market. The region is already quite mature with its adoption of digital technologies and is familiar with the problems experienced when integrating fragmented data sources across existing OT ecosystems with a rapidly expanding footprint of enterprise IT and cloud solutions.  Reekoh’s integration platform and toolkit has resonated strongly in this market where there is an immediate need to break down data silos to drive effective outcomes such as operational efficiencies, AI-based predictive maintenance and advanced data visualisation and analysis.  This validation has also been evidenced through Reekoh’s signing of a global partnership and reseller agreement with AVEVA, one of the world’s largest industrial software vendors and distributors, in late 2020 and current engagement with several of AVEVA’s large ecosystem partners in the region. Premier IoT/IIoT systems integrator, The Integration Group of the Americas, Inc. (TIGA) who are certified with multiple SCADA platforms, cloud integration and cybersecurity of operational systems, have moved quickly to bring Reekoh’s solution into their market.  TIGA’s VP of Growth and Strategic Initiatives, John Kratzert, says they are always looking for emerging technologies like Reekoh that can bring increased value and performance to their clients, and that they are looking forward to forging a relationship within the US.  “Bridging the chasm between IT and OT system data transfer enables our clients to make agile, accurate and timely business decisions based upon real time Operational data,” he said. “Reekoh’s platform agnostic solution, bringing fragmented systems together and establishing the linkages between the  OT and existing business workflows, is critical for TIGA’s clients.  Individually, Reekoh and TIGA enhance a client’s speed, data integrity and  operational efficiency in the execution of their business.  When integrated as a complete enterprise system, the TIGA/Reekoh team exponentially expands the capabilities, of both IT and OT systems, providing the seamless transfer of critical decision-making information.” After joining Reekoh in January this year, Steve Terry believes that the time is right for the company’s presence to expand physically into the markets where the problem of integrating OT and IT environments is the greatest.  “This year we’ve seen the traditional, heavy industrial automation sectors like Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain, Mining and Utilities grow rapidly in their demand for greater digitalization through an Industry 4.0 framework”, said Terry.  “The US and EMEA markets in particular seem to not only understand the concepts around digital transformation and the significant benefits this brings to a business but are also hungry to implement solutions. My role coming into Reekoh was to accelerate the commercialisation of what the business had already built and delivered, and it’s been obvious that the next immediate step was to land ourselves in these growth markets.”    Reekoh CEO and Founder Dale Rankine added, “As the industrialised economies around the world bounce back strongly from COVID and the disruptions of 2020, we’ve seen massive growth in demand for our solutions that absolutely prove that global expansion is something we need to tackle as quickly as possible, and it’s hugely exciting for us that we’re able to leverage Steve’s experience to kick start this.” Reekoh is already working with a number of customers in the US market, particularly where integration of IIoT, SCADA and other assets with large-scale existing ERP and asset management systems such as SAP and IBM are a critical part of the digital transformation program of these enterprises.  Commonly, it is the automation of the business processes and workflows within these enterprise systems that can be optimised with access to the right real-time and historical data that lives in other OT or industrial environments that Reekoh is helping to unlock. Traditionally these integrations have tended be custom-built using various methods, but enterprises now are turning to platforms like Reekoh to make this process more agile, maintainable, and scalable.  The US market is just the start for Reekoh’s global ambitions. With existing channel and partner relationships in UK, EMEA and Asia that are driving customer engagement, establishing further regional offices will quickly follow to support growth and demand.  -- End --   About Reekoh  Reekoh is a leader in data integration for the industrial market, making asset, operational and business data interoperable.

The new personal identity solution empowers businesses to give their customers full control over how they securely store and share verified personal data without unnecessary friction.PingOne for Individuals enables enterprises to provide users superior digital experiences, protect customer privacy and reduce the burden of regulatory and compliance requirements by letting users manage their own personal data. Users can store and easily share their verified, always-up-to-date personal information with businesses or other individuals using a digital wallet on their mobile device. The process makes sharing employment history, transcripts, healthcare records, or other identity-related data simple. Verified data can be kept up to date in real time by data issuers, and sharing it is as simple as scanning a QR code. This makes anything from completing loan applications to verifying the identity of a first date, fast, safe and easy. “The world is overdue for a simpler way for people to share verified information about themselves with businesses and other individuals,'' said Andre Durand, CEO and founder of Ping Identity. “PingOne for Individuals and the ShoCard wallet will ignite decentralised identity by allowing users to control their own data, alleviating businesses from ownership and ultimately delivering improved security and convenience on both ends.” "The global pandemic illuminated an opportunity to raise the health and safety bar for our high-risk clients in the senior living communities we serve," said Craig Shealy, CEO of Wayforth. "ShoCard and PingOne for Individuals will make it easy for every person that visits the campuses we serve to provide proof of vaccination status and training certifications to keep our clients healthy." How it worksOfficial sources of personal identity data – credit bureaus, universities, pharmacies, etc. – can use the PingOne for Individuals solution to add verified credentials to a user’s ShoCard digital wallet by sharing a link or having them scan a QR code. When a different business or individual needs to confirm the identity or information about a person, they can request it by having the user scan a QR code on their website, in the ShoCard wallet on their phone, or even a printed piece of paper. Sensitive data is never outside of the person’s control since it is only stored in the digital wallet, which is protected by Hedera distributed ledger technology to ensure information is never modified or deleted. With PingOne for Individuals businesses can alleviate the technical, privacy and compliance challenges related to customer data because the individual’s data is not stored with the business, but on their mobile device. This approach lowers the risk of fraud by requesting verified information from users. It also streamlines the collection of verified data from individuals to ensure the user experience is seamless while letting organisations leverage the data they need to successfully conduct business. Consumers can download the free ShoCard wallet to their iOS and Android devices immediately via the app store. Enterprises can download the PingOne for Individuals SDK today to start issuing cards for consumers to add to their ShoCard wallet and access the self-service issuance dashboard starting in July 2021. Additionally, in July, Ping will be offering an early-access version of PingOne Credentials, a no-code credentialing service integrated into the PingOne service that allows issuers to create custom card templates and issue credentials to users.

It exposes the disgraceful and deliberate decision, made in 2013, to exclude the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) from the Age Discrimination Act. Spinal Life Australia Chief Executive Officer, Mark Townend, who is leading the campaign said the amendment made it lawful for the NDIS to refuse funding to people who become disabled over the age of 65. “Disability can impact anyone at any time and doesn’t discriminate, so why should age matter? It is unfair, unjust, and unacceptable, and it must end now,” Mr Townend said. One in five Australians, approximately 4.4 million people, live with a disability. Almost half (44.5%) are over 65. Australians over 65 who are excluded from the NDIS, are forced onto the My Aged Care Scheme, which provides a maximum of $52,000 a year in support packages and has a waiting list of up to 18 months. “It is unconscionable. A younger person with the same spinal cord injury, can qualify for the NDIS and receive a funding package of up to $250,000 a year while older Australians struggle to afford care, wheelchairs, equipment, and other support. At Spinal Life Australia we hear these heart-breaking stories every day. The campaign gives Australians the opportunity to add their voice to the call to end age discrimination. Each website sign-up triggers an email to the person’s local Federal MP calling for:  1.      NDIS Minister Linda Reynolds to amend the legislation to end age discrimination 2.      Them to introduce a Private Member’s Bill to stop people over the age of 65 being legally excluded 3.      Two key Aged Care Royal Commission recommendations that address equity for people with disability to be immediately adopted   “Some of our members have missed out on NDIS funding packages by weeks. These are Australians who have fought in wars, paid taxes all their working life, and don’t deserve to be discriminated against,” Mr Townend said. It was two years ago next month that 74-year-old Terry Cokeley had a cycling accident and became a quadriplegic. Because he’s over 65 he doesn’t qualify for NDIS and the extra funding package that would make life easier for him and his wife Alison. “The injury that Terry has is not age-related, so why should he be discriminated against because of his age? Alison said. We need you to add your voice to help us stop age discrimination and inequity so people over the age of 65 have the same access to funding and support as younger Australians. www.disabilitydoesntdiscriminate.com.au Link to Media Kit, including Television Commercials HERE Ping Identity Announces the Acquisition of SecuredTouch to Accelerate Identity Fraud Capabilities 2021-06-22T04:20:18Z ping-identity-announces-the-acquisition-of-securedtouch-to-accelerate-identity-fraud-capabilities DENVER – 21 June 2021 - Ping Identity Holding Corp.

Why You Should Review Your Contract Management System This End of Financial Year 2021-06-21T04:29:19Z why-you-should-review-your-contract-management-system-this-end-of-financial-year As we close out the 2021 financial year and prepare budgets for the next one, now is a good time to check productivity gains using a contract management system. A quick market scan will present a number of systems with varying capabilities. Think walk before you run. Look for a system that's ready to go as a cloud based service – and no need to get the IT folk involved, as you can be up and running with minimal effort. The end of the financial year is a good marker in time to reassess your protocol for contract management. Do you have a viable system in place that’s working to increase efficiency in your organisation? Or are your contracts slipping between the cracks? If you’re looking for a new contract management system. Here are some pointers on what to keep your eyes out for. 1 – Digital Efficiency If you’re still working with contracts in hard copy format, then you could be missing out on the big gains in efficiency that digital options allow. If you’re storing contracts in filing cabinets, do you remember exactly where the information is when you need it? Do contracts ever get lost in the undertow of files and through sheer human error? This simply isn’t good enough if you want to run a tight ship in your business or organisational life. You need to make the shift to a cloud-based contract management system that stores everything at your fingertips for maximum efficiency and to prevent loss of personal data.  2 – Accessibility Contract management systems allow 24/7 access, anywhere, anytime, which means that there are no hold-ups in terms of access to important documents. Your workforce or clients can be on the other side of the world and it won’t matter, as they can still log in easily and view contracts that are relevant to them. Modern contract management systems are more accessible in another way too, in that they’re often available in English and other popular languages. This means the same contract can be read in a person’s native language, making international trade agreements all the more harmonious and easy to facilitate.  3 – KPIs & Analysis  KPIs can be built into contemporary contract management systems so that actions become quantifiable, and results explainable. With clear KPIs in place, a person’s responsibilities are evident, and there are opportunities for growth where they’re not immediately met. KPIs allow for the clarification of standards and expectations necessary in each employee’s role in regards to contract management. With the amount of notifications and checkpoints inbuilt in contract management systems these days, there’s little room for excuses, and much room for improvement. The tools for overall analysis embedded in contract management software gives a bird’s eye view of all operations, and indicates where things are going well or where course corrections need to be made. The many functions now present in contract management systems can save you serious money and time, and their set up is simple and easy. It therefore makes a lot of sense to make the switch to digital contract management systems.  Students gather in Cairns for national ‘soil judging’ competition 2021-06-21T04:03:56Z students-gather-in-cairns-for-national-soil-judging-competition Students from universities around Australia will be gathering in Cairns on Friday 25 June for the 9th National Soil Judging Competition, hosted by Soil Science Australia.  The event is running in the lead-up to the joint Australia/New Zealand National Soils Conference. Teams consist of up to four students (both undergraduate and postgraduate students are permitted) and a ‘coach’.  The aim is less about picking the best soil but more about education and training of the students.  They develop their skills in team work, communication and most importantly, describing and understanding soils and landscapes.  Participants will be looking at soils around Cairns (JCU and East Trinity) as well as the Tablelands.  They get two days of practice (Friday and Saturday) prior to competition on Sunday. The event is not just for students – it is also a critical training event for academics and professionals to exchange knowledge and ensure university teaching is current with industry practice. The event is part of a long-running partnership between Soil Science Australia and universities to train the next generation of soil scientists.  This is critical to the implementation of initiatives such as the recently announced National Soil Strategy. It is a hotly contested event with prizes given for best teams and individuals, although this year the trans-Tasman rivalry will be absent – coronavirus restrictions preventing the attendance of teams from New Zealand.   Dr Andrew Biggs CPSS Soil Judging Convenor   Media/interview/image enquiries: 0476 450 321 or office@soilscienceaustralia.org.au Register at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/147021131161   Soil Science Australia is a not-for-profit, professional association for soil scientists and  people interested in the responsible management of Australia’s soil resources. RICOH Pro C7200sx Series Scoops Mid-Volume CMYK+ BLI PRO Award 2021-06-21T00:56:38Z ricoh-pro-c7200sx-series-scoops-mid-volume-cmyk-bli-pro-award Sydney, 21 June 2021 – RICOH, a leading provider of workplace technology, today announced that the all-around production consistency of the colour sheetfed RICOH Pro C7200sx Series has been recognised with a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021 PRO Award for Mid-Volume CMYK+ Production Device from Keypoint Intelligence. The independent seal of approval for document imaging hardware and software follows robust testing against a comprehensive set of technical criteria. David Sweetnam, Director of EMEA/Asia Research & Lab Services, Keypoint Intelligence (parent company of BLI), said, “We were especially impressed by its performance over our production length test suite, where, over a series of six challenging 1.5 hour workflows generating over 37,000 clicks, the device never suffered a colour drift across the 42 colours in the FOGRA39 media wedge of more than DeltaE00 3.8, neither did it exhibit a front-to-back or page-to-page registration shift of more than 0.4 mm, earning it our coveted 5 Star rating in this category.” “The RICOH Pro C7210sx/x is designed from the bottom up as a production workhorse,” added Martin Soane, European Lab Manager, Keypoint Intelligence. “The device’s fifth imaging station allows printshops to go beyond CMYK, including fluorescents, white, clear, and invisible red.” This latest accolade for Ricoh also coincides with the availability in July of new gold and silver toners for the Pro C7200x Series providing graphic artists and commercial printers with new opportunities to broaden their product range and create market differentiation through striking digital print enhancement capabilities. Developed for the fifth colour station on the Ricoh Pro C7200x digital colour sheetfed press, the toners deliver great visual impact for high value added print. The additional colours can transform a broad range of applications from catalogues, posters, flyers, direct mail, and brochures to business cards, greetings cards, tickets, invitations, certificates, and packaging. The addition of gold and silver toner adds to the most extensive array of additional colours available on any digital press today. The other colours available include a high-opacity white, clear, fluorescent neon yellow, fluorescent neon pink and invisible red. They enable print providers to deliver high-value applications with special effects, visual pop, gamut expansion and/or security features. The new toners are retrofittable, enabling existing users to expand the capabilities of the Ricoh Pro C7200X presses they operate today. Henryk Kraszewski, Senior Product Manager Commercial & Industrial Print, Ricoh Australia, said, “We are thrilled that the C7200x Series has been recognised by Keypoint Intelligence with a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021 PRO Award for Mid-Volume CMYK+ Production Device. This is the second time that the Pro C7200x Series has received a BLI Pro Award. This will provide Australian users with the additional level of confidence in the device’s ability to deliver robust and reliable feature functionality as well as an amazing customer experience. “At the same time, we expect that the new innovation in our toners will open up exciting new business opportunities for highly creative jobs which can now incorporate gold or silver in material which requires that extra standout wow factor.” About Keypoint IntelligenceFor 60 years, clients in the digital imaging industry have relied on Keypoint Intelligence for independent hands-on testing, lab data, and extensive market research to drive their product and sales success.

The partnership combines the strengths of the two companies’ product and services offerings into a local practice to help enterprises successfully scale and optimise software delivery.

In addition, ServiceRocket operates as the services arm for Digital.ai in Australia and New Zealand, providing first-level support as well as implementation, consulting, and training services for Digital.ai resellers and other end users in the region.“In the work we’ve done with large financial, insurance, and telecom institutions, we know these organisations require scalable, truly end-to-end value stream-focused solutions to reap the benefits they know digital transformation can bring,” says José Ramón Peña, VP of Channels, Digital.ai. “We’re excited to partner with ServiceRocket and leverage agile development capabilities to enable enterprises to take their software delivery to a higher level. We believe the ServiceRocket team’s industry leadership and expertise will be critical as we grow our ecosystem in this region.”Many organisations have improved development operations at a team level through agile development and other iterative development approaches, but they often struggle to effectively scale those efforts. In addition, the testing and deployment functions often fail to operate at that same rapid pace, thereby slowing down the entire value flow. The intelligent Digital.ai Platform aligns agile planning, software delivery, and application security, enabling organisations to move their digital initiatives into production and out to market faster, more efficiently, and in a more controlled and secure way.

Notes for editorsAbout Value Stream Management (VSM): organisations typically operate in silos, with separate departments and disciplines, and software delivery itself is also siloed with different systems stovepiped, which makes visibility across the entire business very difficult. VSM connects the multiple silos and disciplines that sit in software delivery processes and in the planning processes, to provide visibility to the enterprise, increase auditability and control, and to optimise, and improve all functions.Digital.ai combines the strength of two established value stream management (VSM) market leaders – CollabNet VersionOne and XebiaLabs – with AI-powered analytics from Numerify, application security from Arxan, and continuous testing from Experitest. Together, these technologies form an end-to-end value stream platform designed to help global enterprises drive digital transformation. As Forrester recognised in its recent report, The Forrester Wave™: Value Stream Management Solutions, Q3 2020, “Digital.ai has a product strategy that aligns well with customers’ needs. Reference customers remarked that Digital.ai is highly collaborative, working with them to build needed capabilities into the platform.”See further https://digital.ai/value-stream-platformAbout ServiceRocketUsing a ”whole product” approach to ecosystem development and tech-enabled services delivery, ServiceRocket empowers companies to build unstoppable businesses.

ENDS 5 Clever Ways to Build Your First-Party Database in a Cookieless World 2021-06-18T03:50:28Z 5-clever-ways-to-build-your-first-party-database-in-a-cookieless-world Digital marketing in 2021 has piggybacked off the most unpredictable year in history, with the persistence of more dramatic industry changes. In particular, Google recently pledged to remove cookies off its platform entirely, as well as Facebook and Apple’s iOS 14 privacy updates come into full effect. Such gigantic industry updates suggest that digital marketers are losing targeting tools and third-party data. As a result, advertisers and the entire digital industry alike must use new avenues to source consumer data. The primary solution to a third-party free internet is to gather and utilise first-party data. First-party data is consumer information obtained exclusively from the site a person is directly accessing. First-party data can be collected from a company’s website, apps, social media platforms, advertising analytics and the information aggregated into CRM platforms. For first-party data collection to be a commercially valuable commodity for a business, customers must be comfortable to hand over their personal details. However, as data breaches and privacy issues have been overly publicised in recent years, this data isn’t an easy task to obtain successfully. In this article, I’ll go over a few strategies’ RGC Digital Marketers have started adopting in order to gather user data on our own. Although none of the following suggestions are quick fixes, instead, they make the most financial and strategic sense long-term. Brand Building and Incentives While brand building and incentives do not directly collect first-party data, the first step to building a first-party database is encouraging your potential customers to give you personal information willingly. A business must be able to give tangible incentives to visitors as a return for sharing personal data. This incentive might be access to premium content, unique resources, exclusive deals, discounts, or anything else that could benefit your audience. Although no value exchange can work without trust since users are more likely to share personal information with brands they know and have confidence in. So, if we want users to supply their data, we need to convince users they can trust us. An excellent way to make users feel comfortable is to provide fresh and engaging content which your target audience wants to see. It may take some time and testing to determine the customer’s ideal content. Even so, if your company lacks brand recognition, you must invest some time into content marketing which can transform your brand into a trusted name that people appreciate. Lead Gen Forms A lead generation form is a web form that encourages prospective customers to enter their personal details such as their email address, home address, age, gender, etc. Contact forms, registration forms, and basic newsletter signup forms are the most popular types of lead generation forms. Using lead generation forms in advertisements is one of the simplest ways for paid media advertisers to collect user information. Lead generation is available across various platforms; LinkedIn and Facebook are the most popular, but don’t forget about Google – available for Search, YouTube, and Discovery campaigns – and Quora. Depending on the industry, you can use lead generation forms to gather as much or as little data as you need to improve your marketing strategies. User Registrations User logins and registrations influence potential customers to exchange their email address to gain access to a website’s content. This process of asking users to register an account on a site is now standard industry practice. For example, shopping and e-commerce websites require visitors to create an account before purchasing. Real estate agencies require users to create an account before they are allowed to view property details and photos. At the same time, some websites selectively lock their entire site until the user makes an account, which is typical for news outlet sites. Initially, user registrations should gather the bare minimum of personal information and then gradually incorporate additional data collection during their web use. To begin, email registration will suffice. Then, later you can gather additional details as they interact further with your content and offers, such as age, company, address, spending habits, etc., which further enriches the user’s profile. Paid Media Channels To exponentially reach more consumers, I suggest trying out new media platforms, as each advertising platform has its own set of targeting options and predominant audience. Digital marketers can use various targeting options to identify new users who are willing to visit our websites and provide us with their details. Your target audience visits more platforms than just Google and Facebook, so it makes sense to explore what other paid media platforms have to offer in terms of targeting. Even this simple strategy will give you more options for attracting users to your site and getting them to provide you with details. All you have to do now is invest the time to study which paid media targeting options could work best for your business. Interactive Content and Gamification Interactive content and engaging games such as infographics, landing pages, videos, calculators, quizzes and challenges can be opportunities to collect personal information from users to enrich their profiles. The market leader for this type of first-party data collection is BuzzFeed who has international recognition for their interactive quizzes. The users don’t realise, but BuzzFeed uses their responses to develop individual user profiles. In fact, according to AdExchanger, over 65% of BuzzFeed’s ad deals already use first-party data to tailor advertising, indicating that the company is more than ahead of the competition when third-party data will be removed entirely from the internet. Quizzes are excellent interactive forms that collect information about the maturity of the user and which phase of the funnel they are in. Quizzes may include questions that help businesses determine user location, purchasing preferences, age, career, etc. When using interactive and fun content on your site, the user will gain a personalised experience, gain trust with your brand and also receive something in return. As a result, using this type of content reduces the website bounce rate, improves interest retention and can result in extremely loyal customers. Ready to Start Optimising Your Website to Collect First-Party Data? Generating first-party user data through the above strategies will help you deliver truly personalised experiences to your potential audiences, allowing your business to grow in brand awareness, company loyalty and ultimately increase profits. Regardless of the solutions you use, it is critical to focus on what your ideal customer wants; this makes successful campaign implementation much more achievable. The entire digital marketing industry anticipates changes in targeting and policies of advertisement platforms in the coming year. The way we advertise to consumers through these platforms may differ, but digital marketing has always been about adjusting to change. The quicker we accept change and adapt our policies to comply, the better off our accounts will be when policy changes are implemented. If you want to get ahead of your competition by making your website more interactive for users and easily collect first-party data, RGC Advertising can help!

Accounting Automation Solutions By BlackLine Complement New Rise With SAP Offering 2021-06-18T02:49:52Z accounting-automation-solutions-by-blackline-complement-new-rise-with-sap-offering SYDNEY — June 18, 2021 — BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL) announced today that its market-leading cloud solutions for financial close complement the RISE with SAP offering, building on the company’s success providing accounting automation solutions to hundreds of businesses using SAP® (NYSE: SAP) technology, including SAP S/4HANA® Cloud. The BlackLine solutions, offered as SAP Solution Extensions, align with the value proposition of RISE with SAP to help customers accelerate their digital transformations to become intelligent enterprises.BlackLine’s cloud-based solutions are offered by SAP as the SAP Account Substantiation and Automation application by BlackLine; the premier edition of SAP Account Substantiation and Automation by BlackLine; and the SAP Intercompany Financial Hub application by BlackLine, and they complement functionality in SAP S/4HANA Cloud. With payback periods averaging less than one year and ROI of 2.77x for every dollar invested (according to a recent Nucleus Research study), BlackLine can help businesses using SAP solutions to automate key financial processes, enhance internal controls and free up resources to support digital transformation – enabling quicker time-to-value and reduced risk for SAP S/4HANA Cloud implementations. BlackLine helps businesses streamline the financial close and other critical accounting processes by providing automated balance-sheet substantiation and intercompany governance functionality within a controlled, end-to-end solution. “SAP offers solution extensions from BlackLine that complement RISE with SAP and help bring added value to customers,” said Martin Naraschewski, senior vice president, global head of line of business finance for SAP. “We look forward to our continued partnership with BlackLine to help enable customers on their journey towards digital transformation.” “Any digital transformation journey starts with process transformation,” said Mel Zeledon, BlackLine’s senior vice president of channels and alliances. “With BlackLine solutions in their cloud portfolio as they move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, businesses can achieve financial close process transformation – aligning with the value proposition of RISE with SAP and enabling the office of the CFO to lead and drive transformation.” Many of the world’s leading companies have leveraged BlackLine as an enabler on their journeys to implementing SAP S/4HANA, and this will likely continue as many more move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Here’s what some are saying: “It only took us two years to implement SAP S/4HANA across 170 entities. That’s pretty rapid. BlackLine definitely made the project better and more manageable and efficient, helping us improve our controls, not just for reconciliations but for the whole close management process. And it served as a source of confidence and continuity during a period of change.” – Doug Tramp, director of finance systems and operational change at Zurich North America "As part of the global transition to SAP S/4HANA, Hershey needed a trusted SAP partner that could help automate an efficient mass global close. We were looking for process efficiency around balance sheet control, preparation and reconciliation. Hershey decided to implement five BlackLine products in a staged approach. We also worked with BlackLine to establish connectors between SAP and BlackLine. All interconnect seamlessly with each other and SAP S/4HANA.” – John Zimmerman, director of financial data systems at The Hershey Company "BlackLine was a key part of preparing for our transition to SAP S/4HANA. We needed to improve the efficiency, accountability and control of the balance-sheet account substantiating process and reporting across the Liberty Group finance function. We also wanted to ensure transparency, better governance and control across the entire record-to-report process. We met our six-week BlackLine implementation deadline. With BlackLine's solutions, we are assured that all reconciled accounts are automatically coming into BlackLine, and we can assign them in real time. Using BlackLine alongside SAP, we’ve taken a significant step toward automation and modernisation." – Lisa Bird, lead specialist for internal financial control at pan-African financial services company Liberty Group Though hundreds of companies currently run BlackLine solutions alongside SAP technology, the solutions are ERP agnostic and integrate with more than 30 different leading source systems – an added benefit for businesses using SAP solutions with multiple ERP systems.SAP recently honored BlackLine with the 2021 SAP Pinnacle Award for Partner of the Year in the Solution Extensions category, recognising BlackLine for its “world-class solution extensions.” As a long-standing SAP platinum partner, BlackLine was one of only 21 partners that received an SAP Pinnacle Award from among more than 20,000 SAP partners worldwide.Learn more online.

ENDS Jamf Continues its Investment in its Enterprise Security Platform, Empowering Both Organisations and Individuals to Be Productive and Protected 2021-06-17T05:20:16Z jamf-continues-its-investment-in-its-enterprise-security-platform-empowering-both-organisations-and-individuals-to-be-productive-and-protected Sydney – June 17, 2021 – Jamf (NASDAQ: JAMF), the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, recently announced a series of new security capabilities to help organisations secure company data and stay compliant with company policies, while empowering their employees to seamlessly access what they need to be their best. Giving End Users Easy but Secure Access to Workplace Tools Stolen or compromised passwords are a security threat now more than ever. IT admins try to combat this threat with password policies, but strong passwords can be difficult for users to remember, and passwords are often reused for multiple resources, increasing vulnerability. Jamf has expanded on the value of secure access to resources by introducing an iPhone application called Jamf Unlock. Jamf Unlock allows a user to passwordlessly authenticate and access their Mac, using Face ID biometrics on the device they always have with them – their iPhone. Building its Endpoint Security Platform, Bolstered by Its Threat Detection Team Research As the demand for Apple continues to increase in the market, these devices become a bigger target for malware authors and malicious actors. Jamf introduced Jamf Protect in late 2019 and it has become a market-leading Apple-specific security solution. Since launch, Jamf Protect has added extensive anti-virus capabilities, expanded threat prevention capabilities, introduced features to selectively collect device logs for a distributed Mac fleet, added integrations into Microsoft Azure Sentinel and AWS S3, and rounded out common administrative capabilities with role-based access control. Jamf’s platform is backed by its Threat Detection team’s diligent research. As the team discovers threats, they can feed this intelligence into Jamf’s solutions. In the last two months, the team discovered and analysed two major vulnerabilities in macOS, now patched by Apple, that were actively being exploited by Shlayer and XCSSET. Both vulnerabilities bypassed built-in macOS security and privacy features, resulting in unverified trust to execute and access user screens, respectively. Jamf’s Threat Detections team continues to monitor for future attacks to help organisations maintain the security of their Apple fleet. Simplifying Compliance to Allow Security and IT Teams to Focus on Strategic Initiatives Companies implement compliance and auditing standards to ensure security best practices are in place to help guard against various cybersecurity risks that have the potential to cause reputational harm and financial loss and impact people’s daily lives. This month, Jamf launched Compliance Reporter, an auditing and compliance solution for macOS that monitors endpoint security settings against common OS hardening benchmarks. Compliance Reporter also maintains in-depth visibility to critical network, process, system, and user activity for threat hunting by IT and security teams, all without relying on any cloud infrastructure. Doubling Down in Mobile Security with Acquisition of Wandera Last month, Jamf announced its intent to acquire Wandera, a leader in zero trust cloud security and access for mobile devices. Building on Jamf’s existing capabilities, Wandera adds Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), mobile threat defense, and data policy features to ensure mobile workers can simply and safely access the network resources they need while complying with organisational policies and reducing mobile charges. This acquisition uniquely positions Jamf to help IT and security teams protect the devices, data and applications used by a mobile workforce, while extending the intended Apple experience through the most robust and scalable Apple Enterprise Management platform in the market. The deal is expected to close in the third quarter. “The security needs of enterprise organizations are changing, as their employees demand to work from the devices and locations they want,” said Josh Stein, director of strategy, security, Jamf. “Jamf is committed to building the most secure and scalable Apple Enterprise Management platform available and to letting IT and security teams stay compliant with company policies while empowering their end users to be their most productive and protected from whichever device and workspace they choose.” About Jamf Jamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management, extends the legendary Apple experience people love to businesses, schools, and government organisations through its software and the world’s largest online community of IT admins focused exclusively on Apple, Jamf Nation.
