The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-05-06T05:45:08Z Lawcadia announces BI reporting for the legal, risk and compliance functions 2021-05-06T05:45:08Z lawcadia-announces-bi-reporting-for-the-legal-risk-and-compliance-functions With corporate and government organisations experiencing a heightened focus on budgetary, regulatory, risk, compliance, and governance issues, Lawcadia have introduced BI reporting so that departments can benefit from custom dashboards and beautiful reports that capture unique data points, metrics and provide crucial insights. Lawcadia chief executive officer and founder Warwick Walsh said, “General Counsels and compliance leaders need accurate and relevant reporting structures to help them demonstrate the impact and value of the legal function as well as to support a strategic decision-making framework.” “Lawcadia’s new BI reporting allows legal, compliance and risk teams to easily prepare custom dashboards and impactful reports based on data points that are relevant to that particular organisation,” he said. According to Mr Walsh, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to legal metrics and analytics which is the key driver for Lawcadia bringing BI Reporting to their suite of intelligent legal workflow, matter and spend management tools. “Legal departments can customise their own dashboards with drag-and-drop functionality, create beautiful reports, as well as dictate which unique data points need to be captured for reporting purposes.” Following the release of document automation last month, BI reporting is another feature made possible by the firm’s new intelligent platform engine, Lawcadia Intelligence™.

The updated Lumada portfolio allows customers to automate tasks and make faster decisions by training data models in the cloud and deploying them to edge devices, creating actionable insights from diverse data sets at lower infrastructure cost. “Across the globe, industries are dealing with increasing complexity, a faster changing environment and greater competition that together are driving a need for accelerated digitalisation. Supply chain disruptions, health and safety measures and operational challenges have highlighted this need for data-driven innovation,” said, Radhika Krishnan, Chief Product Officer, Hitachi Vantara. “Today’s advancements allow our customers to make faster, more informed decisions so industries can thrive in our rapidly digitalising future.” Delivering Deeper Insights and Faster Time to Value Hitachi Vantara is accelerating industrial digitalisation with major enhancements to data-driven offerings for manufacturing, extending AI and automation from edge to core, and delivering deep real-time insights from new combinations of data and connections. Lumada Manufacturing Insights:This industry solution delivers greater visibility across a customers' supply chain subsystems with the supply chain module’s ability to implement supply chain control tower solutions and take direct, demand-driven action.Integrating and correlating data from multiple sources– from asset health data to vibration, video, lidar and audio – to detect potential failure of a machine, manufacturers can better predict points of failure and perform preventive maintenance, reducing downtime and improving output.Also new is the ability to automate forms for digitisation of factory floor processes – a practice that is still largely done with pen, paper and spreadsheets – to establish ‘if this, then that’ protocols across manufacturing processes.Lumada Manufacturing Insights is now also available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace for easier integration with Microsoft cloud environments.Smart Spaces & Lumada Video Insights:These industry solutions leverage new workflow automation within Hitachi Visualization Suite and a mobile application for improved team collaboration and incident response.An expanded Hitachi Edge Gateway portfolio includes industry-tailored and “ruggedised” versions that allow for data integration from sources such as trains, industrial spaces, or first responder vehicles and equipment, and includes higher compute power at the edge with CPU or GPU options to enable new outcomes, and make faster, more data-driven decisions.Sensor fusion creates the ability to co-analyse video, lidar, and other data to enable new use cases such as quality assurance and analysis of human-machine interaction, while improving accuracy.Lumada Edge Intelligence:Integration between the Lumada software platform and Google Cloud allows customers to speedup data preparation by adjusting resources on-demand and combining multiple data types for better insights.Updates to Lumada Edge Intelligence also simplify Machine Learning workflows by pushing models to edge devices for faster automated decision-making without reliance on point tools.New APIs for edge management and data access allow reuse of assets, gateways, and software to create integrated solutions utilising existing infrastructure. “Meat & Livestock Australia has been collaborating with Hitachi Vantara on a number of digital projects over the past five years leading up to our latest project, the Connected Beef Supply Chain Control Tower,” says Dr. Nigel Tomkins, program manager, grassfed productivity at Meat & Livestock Australia. “Hitachi Vantara’s Lumada Manufacturing Insights has allowed our industry to integrate both sensor and system data to provide insights across the supply chain—this has led to improved productivity and quality outcomes. We look forward to leveraging the capabilities of the Supply Chain Control Tower even further—gaining insight on factors impacting supply and consumer demand.” “Our industry is experiencing rapid digitalisation and a distinct increase in the pace of business. This underscores the need for more agility and predictability in everything we do and what we deliver to our customers,” says Petra Sundström, VP & Head of Digital Offering, Sandvik Rock Processing at industrial manufacturer Sandvik. “We’re collaborating with Hitachi to innovate our business models. With Lumada Manufacturing Insights, we are now able to offer predictive maintenance as a service--delivering the outcomes our customers are looking for in this digital era.” “For manufacturers to get real end-to-end benefits from data-driven solutions, it’s important to focus not only on the obvious areas of production. Other data sources and solutions beyond the factory floor should also be looked at. For example, use video analytics to study material flow from receiving dock to warehouse to shop floor; use lidar to monitor employee movements from a safety perspective. There are so many ways to use this technology, and the applications become more apparent as the team familiarises with the sensors and analytics,” says Allen Ahlert, senior director, Engineering with Hitachi Computer Products (America), Inc. which leverages Lumada solutions at its 352,000 sq. ft manufacturing and supply facility in Norman, OK. “Hitachi Vantara has been able to approach this holistically beyond what point solutions can do to create comprehensive, rich insights across facilities and processes.” Availability These updates are now available worldwide from Hitachi Vantara and select partners.

Australia's National Crime Check Partners with Jumio to Scale its InstaID System and Accelerate Customer Onboarding 2021-05-05T01:42:14Z australias-national-crime-check-partners-with-jumio-to-scale-its-instaid-system-and-accelerate-customer-onboarding Jumio, the leading provider of AI-powered end-to-end identity verification and eKYC solutions, today announced a new business partnership with longtime customer National Crime Check (NCC) as the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) accredited agency continues to scale its InstaID identity verification system. National Crime Check has been helping clients perform compliant and technologically driven ACIC police checks and employment screening services since 2009. NCC has been a Jumio customer since 2014, the same year it launched InstaID, which enables Australian businesses and organisations to quickly and securely validate the identities of their vendors, customers and tenants. With this new partnership agreement, NCC expands its offerings to now provide real-time identity checks with access to the Australian Government’s Document Verification Service (DVS) within the InstaID system. With InstaID, businesses can shorten their customer onboarding time from hours to a few minutes and save up to 40% of the verification cost. Jumio Identity Verification uses AI, machine learning and biometrics to automate the verification process and help companies improve conversion rates, comply with AML and KYC regulations and better detect fraud — all while delivering a definitive yes/no decision in seconds. Given the growth of deepfakes, bots, and sophisticated spoofing attacks, Jumio has integrated certified liveness detection to detect when photos, videos, or even realistic 3D masks are used instead of actual selfies to create online accounts. Jumio offers the most mature identity solutions for the Australian market, accepting and reliably verifying multiple types of government-issued IDs including passports, driver’s licenses and ID cards. Pairing the DVS database check with real-time identity verification provides organisations with a higher level of assurance that the ID document is valid and was issued by the Australian government. “The challenge of today’s organisations is to create a seamless identity verification process while reducing transaction friction and deterring fraud,” said Dean Hickman-Smith, Jumio’s chief revenue officer. “We are extremely proud of the work we’ve done with National Crime Check and look forward to taking our partnership to the next level as NCC scales its InstaID system to accelerate user onboarding while simultaneously reducing online fraud.” “The partnership between InstaID and Jumio is really exciting for us. The solution allows organisations to verify the identity of individuals in real time with a high level of assurance. It combines the power of Jumio’s leading OCR, biometric facial recognition and liveness detection technology with biographic verification via the Australian Federal Government Document Verification Service (DVS) to give you confidence in who you are dealing with,” said Martin Lazarevic, InstaID general manager.

(NYSE: FSLY), a global edge cloud platform provider, has announced Nearline Cache, a storage solution for customers with large content libraries, like streaming media, gaming, and software companies. Nearline Cache was built in the same serverless compute environment that forms the foundation of Fastly’s ground-breaking Compute@Edge product, enabling Fastly’s product development team to deliver a host of customer benefits and realise significant development and operational efficiencies. Building Nearline Cache in Compute@Edge validates the foundational promise of the technology to enable breakthrough innovations at scale more easily and quickly. Compute@Edge allowed Fastly to deliver the global scale and high performance customers require, while also reducing their operational overhead and eliminating the unpredictable costs typical with competing solutions. The advantages for Fastly were accelerated development time, global service deployment in seconds, and the ability to fully leverage the power of Fastly’s high-performance, software defined global network. “The powerful serverless compute environment we built to help customers innovate quickly has brought those same benefits to Fastly,” said Nick Rockwell, Fastly’s senior vice president of engineering. “It is a really strong proof point for the value of Compute@Edge and Fastly’s ability to innovate faster - it’s a differentiator we plan on leveraging across our product lines, including security, delivery and compute. And Nearline Cache is an important addition to our capabilities, enabling customers with large content libraries to lower costs by storing long-tail content closer to their end users.” Compute@Edge enables organisations to build high-scale, globally distributed applications and microservices in a powerful and fast serverless compute environment that runs on Fastly’s edge cloud platform. Designed to address the requirements of modern app development including CI/CD and DevOps workflows, Compute@Edge allows organisations to reduce infrastructure costs and scale instantly with better performance, enhanced visibility, and reduced latency. At 35.4 microseconds, Compute@Edge provides a 100x faster code execution startup time than other serverless solutions. And customers gain unprecedented visibility into app development through granular real-time metrics, logging and tracing. Nearline Cache enables organisations to automatically populate and store content in cloud storage that doesn’t incur egress costs near a Fastly point-of-presence (POP), while pulling content accessed later back into cache. This results in reduced total cost of ownership for long-tail content storage and delivery. Additionally, Nearline Cache instinctively auto-populates itself on the first cache miss asynchronously, minimising latency for a better user experience. The ability to use Compute@Edge to immediately and globally deploy an application like Nearline Cache, with critical development tools like Log Tailing, shows that Fastly customers can lean on the solution to dramatically reduce the overall develop, test, and deploy cycle. To learn more about building on Compute@Edge and how to leverage the solution to power the future of your applications running at the edge, visit: https://www.fastly.com/products/edge-compute/serverless/. About FastlyFastly helps people stay better connected with the things they love. Fastly’s edge cloud platform enables customers to create great digital experiences quickly, securely, and reliably by processing, serving, and securing our customers’ applications as close to their end-users as possible — at the edge of the internet.

Reekoh CEO confirmed as incoming Chair for the IoTAA Interoperability Workstream 2021-04-29T01:50:08Z reekoh-ceo-confirmed-as-incoming-chair-for-the-iotaa-interoperability-workstream Reekoh CEO and Founder Dale Rankine has been confirmed as the incoming Chair for the IoTAA Interoperability Workstream, effective from today. IoT Alliance Australia (IoTAA) is the peak industry body representing the Internet of Things (IoT) in Australia, with over 500 participating organisations and 1000 individual participants working across twelve workstreams. These workstreams bring together industry participants, stakeholders and interested individuals around key focus areas to help undertake projects and initiatives that encourage learning, policy development and understanding of relevant segments of the IoT ecosystem. The key pillars of the ecosystem that the IoTAA sees as underpinning the industry are Data, Security and Interoperability. The Interoperability Workstream has been gearing up for a mission and membership “reboot” after recently dropping “Platforms” from its title and becoming one of these key pillars for IoTAA activity. As part of this reboot, and off the back of the investment that outgoing inaugural Chair Geof Haydon had provided, Dale Rankine has been elevated from Deputy Chair to take on the role of Chair of the workstream. “Obviously as the CEO and founder of a company that lives and breathes integration and interoperability, this is a space that I’m particularly passionate about”, says Rankine. “I’m a strong advocate for Interoperability by Design in digital transformation, enabling organisations to accelerate implementation and scale, and to future-proof their business for change. This is a strategy and architecture, not a technology, led approach to success, and the IoTAA believes that it’s a central piece of the puzzle that needs the right level of visibility and influence in the industry. I’m very excited to be taking on this role with the Interoperability Workstream, and plan to quickly kick off a reboot of the group’s membership and activity to align with a lot of the other great work being done in the other workstreams.” Sony Announces Latest IP, Cloud Solutions and Imaging Products for More Flexible and Scalable Productions and Workflows 2021-04-29T01:37:46Z sony-announces-latest-ip-cloud-solutions-and-imaging-products-for-more-flexible-and-scalable-productions-and-workflows Sony announces a series of new upgrades and innovations across the full range of its professional media products and solutions aligned with leading industry trends focused on IP, Cloud, and Imaging. The market transformation is fuelled by the need to produce high quality content, from any location, through scalable and efficient workflows.  Anthony Kable, Content Creation Group Manager, Sony Australia commented: “for the last year, in the face of unprecedented circumstances, we at Sony have been working steadily to match the changes in market needs with useful and pragmatic innovations. As remote, distributed production coupled with efficient workflows, becomes the de-facto way of working, we will continue to propose innovations based around IP, Cloud and Imaging quality. These are tools that enable customers to transform their business.” Bringing the power of IP to any type of business  As pioneers in IP, Sony has delivered IP Live production systems to more than 120 facilities and OB trucks worldwide as of April 2021, including customers such as Polsat and University of Alabama. Over the last year, there has been an increased demand for a more holistic end-to-end IP approach. In parallel, the appetite for workflow efficiency is also pushing many broadcasters and production companies to mandate an IP infrastructure for their productions. With this context in mind, Sony announces two compact IP extension adapters, the HDCE-TX50 and the HDCE-RX50, which provide the current HDC camera line-up with IP capability in 4K. With their high frame rate (HFR) features allowing up to 6x slow motion in HD when using with HDC-5500 and an optional license HZC-HFR50, these adapters will prove indispensable for efficient resource and asset sharing for existing HDC users. Both models will be available in December 2021. To respond to the appetite for IP beyond 4K, Sony is also delighted to announce its new 8K ST2110 Interface option board and SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) Agent Software, both to be available in October 2021. Adding to the CCU of the UHC-8300 8K camera system, the new Interface board UKCU-8001 enables IP operation of the 8K system. Thanks to the SNMP Agent Software UZCU-SNMP80, the board will allow operators to also monitor IP operations and change settings remotely. This new optional board has already been adopted by China Central Television (CCTV) in response to increased demand for 8K in China. For customers looking to take advantage of IP technology to transform their production, Sony's IP Live production system that now includes Nevion's orchestration and SDN control software VideoIPath, provides the means to create reliable, scalable and flexible IP systems for convergent LAN/WAN infrastructures. The new version 3.0 firmware release of Sony’s IP Live System Manager, scheduled for May 2021, includes a south-bound interface to VideoIPath, thereby augmenting its existing broadcast control capabilities with VideoIPath’s network orchestration. Sony’s NXLK-IP50Y and NXLK-IP51Y SDI-IP converter boards, which enable SDI devices to be connected to IP networks, will also be upgraded in September 2021 to support NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications), enabling  them to be controlled by VideoIPath. Both these enhancements will allow customers to build more robust IP systems with an optimized cost. All of the above new offerings support worldwide standards and specifications including SMPTE ST 2110 and AMWA NMOS.  Expansion of Remote production  Sony recently expanded the XVS series of switchers with the introduction of the XVS-G1, a 4K-ready, compact, entry-level option. Now, the rest of the line-up (XVS-9000, XVS-8000, XVS-7000 and XVS-6000) is enhancing its functionality through a new firmware update.  Version 3.6, available from June 2021, brings Inter-Group Connection functionality which will connect multiple switcher control stations. This will be particularly useful for users needing scalable and flexible systems in multi-studios and remote setups. It also includes HDR conversion on 12G-SDI input through an optional license. In order to meet the accelerated demand for remote environments, the BRC-X400, SRG-X400, SRG-X120 cameras will support the SRT protocol, bringing high quality video transmission with low latency, with firmware version 3.0, available in June 2021. Sony’s unique Adaptive Rate Control function provides a more stable connection, optimized for the network environment and available bandwidth. Supporting RTMP/RTMPS (Real Time Messaging) Protocol, the cameras will directly stream to social media platforms with a simple and quick connection. The new application “Virtual Cam Driver for Remote Camera” is also planned to be released in June 2021, which enables remote cameras to be used as web conference tools.  Scalability and Agility in the Cloud Sony’s Ci Media Cloud continues to add features to further enable secure remote collaboration in the cloud. Several new features, including Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and advanced administrative controls, have been added to enable content owners to further protect their most valuable content. Ci’s newly added quality control (QC) features such as Source Quality Frame Preview and Frame-accurate Audio Meters enable remote teams to perform quality and compliance checks entirely in the cloud with a simple web browser – eliminating additional file transfers and content is safely secured in a single location. Harnessing the power of high-quality content and powerful workflows  Sony is also announcing a range of upgrades and new products that will provide high quality content from capture to monitoring and create freedom of use through workflow efficiency. Sony remains committed to offering innovative tools that empower creators and enrich storytelling. To this end, the company is currently developing a new 4K camera system to expand the HDC line-up. Its Super35 global shutter CMOS image sensor enables a shallow depth of field that enhances creative expression and provides cinematic bokeh that captures every nuance and emotion - all in an HDC form factor. The camera will be compatible with Sony’s existing SR Live for HDR workflow with HLG and S-Log3. The new model is planned to be available in 2021.  Full details will be announced in the coming months. On the camera front, Sony’s range of XDCAM camcorders will have several successive powerful upgrades.  For instance, the 4K shoulder camcorder PXW-Z750 will have a longer cache recording duration through the version 3.0 firmware update planned for May 2021, adding more flexibility for use in news, documentary and natural history recordings to help capture critical moments.  A firmware update, planned for later in 2021, will provide the PXW-Z280 handheld camcorder with HD 120 fps support and equip it with enhanced cloud capability, providing benefits that enhance remote operation and offer faster media relay. Also planned for May 2021, the FX9 and FX6 will receive firmware upgrade to support 4K 120p RAW output with an external recorder*[1]. Launching in 2021, FX9 Version 3.0 firmware will have new features including an Anamorphic mode to display 2x and 1.3x desqueeze and Cinemascope frame lines in the viewfinder, on top of the addition of S700PTP, a Centre Scan mode for Super 16mm lens and B4 Lens support with its adaptor.  Sony is also introducing a new addition to the professional monitor line-up, the new PVM-X3200 (32”) 4K HDR picture monitor. This model, launching in October 2021, benefits from TRIMASTER technology and supports an all-white luminance of 1000 cd/m2. It also matches 100 percent of the colour gamut of the industry-leading BVM-HX310 TRIMASTER HX master monitor, ensuring continuous colour accuracy from production to post. With the optional license PVML-HSX1 scheduled for June 2021, the PVM-X3200, PVM-X2400 and PVM-X1800 will also support internal conversion of HDR to SDR and 4K to HD for further usability. Enhancement of SR Live for HDR workflow   Already adopted by several organizations such as Euromedia Group, Sony’s SR Live for HDR workflow focuses on creating the best Live HDR and SDR programs simultaneously through a single production unit. By using the new SR Live Metadata, Sony HDC camera settings are captured by the camera and sent through to the post-production process via an SDI link. Thus, the SDR production output perfectly matches the intention and settings of the grader. Sony is now expanding the equipment compatible with SR Live Metadata and enhancing the function to support efficient HDR production. Sony’s range of shoulder camcorders, the PXW-Z750/Z450/X400 will see an improved integration into an HDR workflow: SR Live Metadata will be recorded with greater detail in a recording file thanks to the new firmware update planned for May 2021. In April 2021, the Metadata based part of the workflow will be enhanced with the introduction of SR Live MetaFile. This will allow users to manage SR Live Metadata files shareable between Sony’s HDR production converter HDRC-4000 unit via USB or email, instead of just relying on SDI link. Then in May this year, Sony will offer SR Live 3D LUT files that provide HDR/SDR conversion with the same image quality as Sony’s HDRC-4000 converter unit. By importing this SR Live 3D file, third-party converters that support 3D LUTs can also be used in Sony’s SR Live for HDR workflows, giving the system more flexibility. For more information on new products and solutions, please visit pro.sony/solutions2021.  For high-res images go to: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3h32dnp68ap2pu5/AAD_0V6xl8B49wTsJCu-Bm3Fa?dl=0 Snowflake Achieves “Protected” Status After Completing Australian Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) Assessment 2021-04-29T00:56:06Z snowflake-achieves-protected-status-after-completing-australian-information-security-registered-assessors-program-irap-assessment SYDNEY – April 29, 2021 – Snowflake, the Data Cloud company today announced it has completed an Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment confirming that Snowflake’s Data Cloud has achieved the Australian Government security status of ‘protected’ on selected deployments.

The Bytecode Alliance Calls for New Members In Mission to Build Safer Software Foundations for the Internet 2021-04-28T22:53:14Z the-bytecode-alliance-calls-for-new-members-in-mission-to-build-safer-software-foundations-for-the-internet SAN FRANCISCO --- April 28 2021 --- The Bytecode Alliance, a community dedicated to creating new software foundations, building on standards such as WebAssembly and WebAssembly System Interface (WASI), today announced incorporation as a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organisation. Incorporated by Fastly, Intel, Mozilla and Microsoft, the Bytecode Alliance now invites organisations to join its cross-industry collaborative mission alongside new members Arm, DFINITY Foundation, Embark Studios, Google, Shopify, and University of California at San Diego. These organisations share a vision of a WebAssembly ecosystem that fixes cracks in today’s software foundations that are holding the industry and its software supply chains back from a secure, performant, cross-platform and cross-device future. Bytecode Alliance members believe effective multi-stakeholder collaboration is vital to achieving this vision of software foundations that enable security, efficiency, and modularity to coexist across the widest possible range of devices and architectures. The Bytecode Alliance, founded in 2019, has helped bring attention to the inherent weaknesses in predominant models for building software, which rely heavily on composing up to thousands of third-party modules without security boundaries between them. These Weaknessesin the software supply chain have historically been instrumental in breaching government systems, critical infrastructure services, and a large number of companies, as well as in stealing personal information of hundreds of millions, perhaps even billions of people. Solving these challenges will require efforts across many industries. With an open governance model and a growing list of member organisations, the Bytecode Alliance will scale its efforts to contribute solutions to this space in support of its mission. Organisations passionate about contributing to this mission and building new, more secure foundations for the cloud, the edge, the Internet of Things, and many other environments and platforms, are invited to apply to become members. Membership applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but those submitted in the near future will have an opportunity to participate in full board elections in the second half of 2021. “Collaboration across the industry to build stronger software foundations is crucial to securing the future of a safer and more efficient web. The WebAssembly ecosystem is an exciting, powerful world that will make possible a lot of ‘what ifs’ in building secure applications and software across clients, origins, and the edge. Every bit of progress the Bytecode Alliance makes to standardise these software development practices is another chapter in computing history. Fastly is thrilled to be an incorporating member and to welcome new and future Alliance members who share this vision.” -- Tyler McMullen, CTO at Fastly “As an incorporating member of the Bytecode Alliance, Intel welcomes the new members and recognises the importance of a secure and open WebAssembly ecosystem driven by industry collaboration. Intel continues to extend WebAssembly’s performance and security benefits outside of the browser, most recently driving the WebAssembly System Interface for Neural Network specification and implementation in Wasmtime to enable higher machine learning inferencing performance in WebAssembly.” -- Mark Skarpness, VP, Intel Architecture, Graphics, and Software; General Manager, System Software Engineering at Intel "We have a real opportunity to change how software is built, and in doing so, enable small teams to build big things that are both secure and fast. Mozilla believes that WebAssembly has the right technical ingredients to build a better, more secure Internet, and that the Bytecode Alliance has the vision and momentum to make it happen.” -- Bobby Holley, Distinguished Engineer at Mozilla and Bytecode Alliance Board Member “Microsoft is excited to join the Bytecode Alliance as an incorporating member to support the effort to build a more open, scalable, secure web. WebAssembly and the emerging WebAssembly System Interface (WASI) specification enable cloud-native solutions to become more secure by default and help solve computing challenges across a variety of environments, including the ‘tiny edge’ of systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) and microcontroller units (MCUs). Microsoft looks forward to collaborating with the Bytecode Alliance members and community as this ecosystem continues to rapidly innovate and grow.” -- Ralph Squillace, Principal Program Manager, Azure Core Upstream at Microsoft and Bytecode Alliance Board Member About The Bytecode AllianceThe Bytecode Alliance is a non-profit organisation dedicated to creating secure new software foundations, building on standards such as WebAssembly and WebAssembly System Interface (WASI).

CircleSource closes talent gap between SMEs and big business 2021-04-28T22:51:08Z circlesource-closes-talent-gap-between-smes-and-big-business-1 Small and medium enterprises can now attract the best Australian specialists for outsourced expertise, thanks to a new online marketplace that connects businesses (buyers) to expert service providers (suppliers) within minutes.The CircleSource digital platform focuses on Australian specialists nationwide, to support Australian experts and Australian businesses; allowing both parties to communicate directly online and in-person offline.The platform’s interactive map even lets you search by location, streamlining your search to your local area – particularly useful for organisations looking to build their community.CircleSource is co-founded by Andrew Jarvis and Andrew Jackson, who built their decades-long careers in corporate HR, across numerous industry sectors; experiencing first-hand the need to engage external specialists at different stages throughout their journeys.Today, small businesses employing 0-19 staff make up 97.4% of all Australian businesses, and a whopping 62.8% of Aussie businesses are non-employing (sole traders). And as the number of independent contractors in the gig economy continues to grow rapidly, Jarvis says now is the time for SMEs to harness the full benefits of sourcing external specialists via a robust system. “We know that external specialists inject much-needed fresh thinking and expert skills into organisations. It can save costs and increase productivity.“But for too long, SMEs have been disadvantaged by the lack of resources and governance protocols to source the best people, relying heavily on personal networks and referrals or online search,” he said.CircleSource removes this disadvantage, giving SMEs easy access to competing on a level playing field as big business; by providing a sophisticated enterprise business management tool that cuts inefficiencies.“Everything from the job brief, listing and bidding to communication, proposal review and data reporting, can be managed on the one dashboard.”“Depending on how the individual business operates, there can be between 40%-70% cost savings in time and effort,” said Jarvis, who highlighted the fact that there is absolutely no cost to the buyer to use the platform. Suppliers only pay a one-off fee (which is capped) if they win a job. Buyers and suppliers want transparencyResearch, both academic and through CircleSource’s own market surveys, reveals that independent specialists want platforms that are truly transparent – no hidden costs such as fees for membership and lead generation; no barriers to buyer/supplier communication; and openness around how jobs get awarded.As Dr. Amy Wrzesniewski, Professor at Yale School of Management explains in an interview published in Deloitte Insights, it matters a lot that people feel they understand how it all works, especially in the business side of things – where the money goes, how jobs get assigned – and that they feel fairly treated. “At least right now, on a lot of these platforms, there is a sense of a lack of transparency or at worst, a sense of potentially being manipulated by the platform where gig workers feel the design is pushing them, but it’s for the benefit of the organisation, not the individual,” she said.Jarvis: “Exactly why we built CircleSource on our core values of transparency and trust. To move beyond a financial transaction marketplace, into an ecosystem where real connections, relationships and collaborations grow. To deliver great outcomes for all parties in terms of quality, time and cost.”For buyersSign up for free and start searching for all suppliers on the platform. There are no barriers to reading their full profiles.You can follow them or mark them as favourites until you are ready to engage them.Create your job, post to the open market or directly invite selected suppliers and communicate directly via live chat.You can also invite experts from outside of the platform to bid at the same time.Receive notifications each time there is an action on the job.It is 100% free for buyers. Suppliers will only pay a fee of 7.5% of the agreed value of the job, capped at a maximum of $1250 if their proposal is accepted. No job, no fee – if you do not win a job, you pay nothing.Once a job is completed, you can choose to recommend a supplier and leave a written endorsement. It is how suppliers trend in CircleSource and appear higher in searches.You can manage all jobs in one dashboard and build your network of inner-circle suppliers for future engagement.For suppliersSign up for free and start searching for all jobs on the platform. There is no lock-in contract to participate.Showcase your expertise for free, to attract leads from companies outside of your usual business networks.Communicate directly with buyers to ask questions, discuss details and share information. There are no barriers to communication.No job, no fee. There is no limit on how many jobs you can pitch for.Only pay a fee of 7.5% of the agreed value of the job, capped at a maximum of $1250, if your proposal is accepted. So, for example, if you win a $50,000 job, the capped CircleSource fee is $1250, which is in fact only 2.5% of the engagement value.The more jobs you win through CircleSource, the higher you trend in searches of buyers looking for your expertise.Once a job is completed, you can choose to leave a written endorsement on what it was like to work with the buyer.About CircleSourceAn Australian-owned and founded business to help Aussie enterprises find and connect with a network of the best Aussie talent for service and project-based work.
