Financial consolidation systems are the ‘engine room’ of the corporate finance department, enabling companies of all sizes to comply with regulatory reporting requirements, company law and global accounting standards as well satisfy management’s need for periodic management reporting. But all is not well with standalone consolidations applications that were developed in the 1990’s and which are still commonplace in some of the world’s largest multinationals. According to one recent report, 47 percent of companies have made substantial investments in the last year in their financial close, filing, and reporting. Yet, despite the considerable sums of money invested in the process, management teams across the globe remain dissatisfied with the quality and timeliness of management information.

In recent months, leaders at some of the world’s largest consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies have spoken publicly about how ZBB is helping them save on overhead costs, which can then be used to reinvest in growth through innovation or bolster their margins. As consumers increasingly have more choices, these companies are finding their margins squeezed, and with direct expenses already trimmed back to the bare minimum, the only place to look is sales, general and administration (SG&A), and other overhead expenses.

As the trend of moving to the Cloud continues to flow from business function to business function, other trends are emerging. As organizations transform to eliminate complex functions, standardize and integrate systems to reduce costs, and minimize nonvalue add activities, they are challenging themselves to get the most from their investment. The shift from transactional to strategic, and from reporting to actionable and predictive analytics, positions companies for growth like never before. Many organizations look to break down silos, not only within their company but also within their industries, to share lessons and leverage efficiencies from others’ learnings. Our recommendation is to start by breaking down any silos that exist between finance, HR, and IT within your organization today—and discover what moving to cloud and truly adopting the SaaS lifestyle can do for your organization.

In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.

HRIS solutions designed for very large organizations can be costly to set up and maintain, and often require the services of an army of consultants to keep them operational. Systems designed for very small organizations concentrate on either HR functions such as attendance and compensation, or on benefits management, but usually lack the ability to integrate the two areas. To be a practical investment choice for a mid-tier organization, a satisfactory HRIS solution must have its HR and benefits functions highly integrated. It must be agile so it can easily be kept aligned with the constant change in compliance laws, and it must be robust and secure, built on a tried and true platform foundation.
