Zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats have outstripped the capabilities of traditional security methods that rely exclusively on detection and blocking. At the same time, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is accelerating. Opportunities are opening up for businesses and attackers alike as more things come online, along with the people, processes, and data that interact with them.
Workiva commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic ImpactTM study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Wdesk for Controls Management. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Wdesk on their organizations and how it can be leveraged to optimize the processes necessary to deliver Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance.
This in-depth financial summary finds a 238% three-year, risk-adjusted ROI for a large auto parts retailer. Key outcomes include reduced the effort required to formulate and update processes and controls for SOX compliance resulting in a three-year benefit of $190,568, and simplified audit efforts with improved audit trails in financial controls, delivering three-year present value benefits of $128,965.
Attracting today’s savvy candidate requires much more than a creative job description and a flattering email message. The transparency provided by web sites such as Glassdoor combined with a millennial desire for meaningful work and corporate responsibility have the upped the ante when it comes to employer brand and candidate experience. While many firms have good intentions when it comes to employer brand, these intentions aren’t always translated to action, leaving many candidates feeling frustrated as they move through the process. New hires need confirmation that everything they were told in the interview processes is not only accurate, but even better than expected. When the onboarding process falls short of those expectations, candidates immediately question their decision to accept the offer and retention efforts in jeopardy. Join this webcast to learn how to avoid costly new-hire attrition in your organization.

For Chief Procurement Officers ("CPOs") and other supply management leaders, collaboration has taken on many new and innovative forms over the years, causing these executives to leverage new (and, in some cases, existing) processes, relationships, and technologies to enhance compliance, decrease risk, and increase savings. One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.

Companies that manufacture industrial equipment find themselves in a unique place among manufacturers:
• Their products can range from small components to mammoth machines for mines or mills.
• They rarely order large production runs and may be called on to create a process that results in an order of one.
• Their markets impose challenging constraints.
Customers want more choices, more options, more extras, and more features. And they want the order to be fulfilled sooner. The competitive environment is forcing model cycles to shrink, pressuring manufacturers to accelerate processes that are unable to keep pace. Dassault Systèmes DELMIA has assembled an industry-specific set of roles for industrial equipment manufacturers that brings these challenges under control.

manufacturer approached KPMG with a paradox: It was
certainly marquee, but not new. As the highly publicized
spin-off of a global health services conglomerate, the
company began life with $18 billion in annual revenues,
an established product pipeline and instant
membership in the S&P 100. Reliant on the back-office
functions of its parent, it needed to quickly acquire the
back-office sinews of a truly stand-alone company: ERP
systems and core processes for finance, operations
and human resources.
During an intensive three-year engagement, KPMG
brought the vision of the company’s leaders to life,
working towards a target operating model through the
disciplined implementation of new systems, processes,
training and staffing. The multidisciplinary approach
eventually touched the lives of every one of the
company’s 21,000 employees, in 170 countries.

intangible emerged – a new company culture,
