Payments are essential to the success of marketplaces and platforms that connect buyers to sellers, where transactions are a critical component of customers’ satisfaction. Sellers seek fast and flexible payouts, while both sellers and buyers look for an integrated and seamless experience. With the increasing complexity of multi-party transactions on platforms, these expectations are difficult to meet.
Stripe commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Stripe Connect, an offering that allows marketplaces and platforms to accept payments from and send payouts to third parties.
Forrester’s interviews with four existing Stripe clients and subsequent financial analysis found that an organization based on these interviewed organizations experienced benefits of $6.1 million over three years versus costs of $1.3 million, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $4.
Today, business is conducted in a fast-paced, on-demand, globally dispersed environment. Maintaining a competitive edge requires cohesive real-time collaboration. Mobile workers, partners, vendors, suppliers, and even customers expect to be able to work together seamlessly, both inside and outside the firewall.

Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.
Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed breach world.

Your organization depends on all kinds of inline tools to keep your
network up and running, but those same tools can fail, leaving you
vulnerable. Moreover, as network speeds increase, slower tools
can bottleneck network traffic, making organizations purchase
more and more tools, which then introduce complexity and
cost. There is a better way to increase network resiliency while
reducing security issues, and that’s inline bypass.
The University of Melbourne deployed Automation Anywhere’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology to reduce manual work and automate a range of administrative processes across student admissions, faculty administration, and supplier tracking.
The deployed software bots now automate the entry of all data and attachments for new admission applications, and the university has slowly expanded its automation capabilities for staff across other faculties.
This has allowed the University of Melbourne to increase the efficiency of critical business processes, boost staff engagement, and improve customer experience for its teachers and student body.
Much has already been said and written about the infiltration of robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation (IA) technologies into the workforce. In truth, it’s taken the corporate world a while to test, trust and commit to automation at work.
To understand how far APAC/ANZ markets have advanced towards acting on these opportunities, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveyed the market and found that across the region corporations were forward thinking in building for scale, trusting technology and recognising the need to incorporate robotics into both IT infrastructure and enterprise strategy.
This report explains how enterprises across APAC/ANZ are staying ahead of the global wave of RPA, the most popular solutions they are choosing, who the preferred consultants or 'integrators' are, the challenges, and how the digital workforce is being integrated into the human one.

It happens every year – the General Rate Increase. As carriers increase their shipping rates to keep pace with the economy, shippers try to adjust and factor the annual increase into their business model. But there’s more to GRI than meets the eye. The GRI is just one of many variables in your shipping costs, and misjudging the GRI and other cost increases that might come along with it can be catastrophic to your bottom line if they are not managed properly. With smart planning, however, you can control these costs and protect your profits.

Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

Regardless of whether your data resides on-premises, in the cloud, or a
combination of both, you are vulnerable to security threats, data breaches,
data loss, and more. Security is often cited as a concern for organizations
