We’re seeing a global trend towards responsible investing. Increasingly, institutional investors are recognising the potential for ESG factors to affect the valuation and financial performance of the companies they invest in. At the same time, consumer demand for responsible investments is surging, especially from the younger generation.
“Responsible” or “sustainable” finance and a focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have moved firmly into the mainstream today.
This booklet presents the proof to address the issues around responsible investment implementation: statistics from across investment markets that show how significant this shift is.
A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade.
More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome.
But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous.
This white paper will discuss:
• The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management
• Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance
• The cost of different contractor management systems
• How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain
Don’t just manage user access, control it. With identity governance, you can be sure only the right people are accessing the right applications, files and data. Download this brief to find out how you can truly combat security risks and stay compliant.

Digital transformation (DX) is a must for midsize firms (those with 100 to 999 employees) to thrive in the digital economy. DX enables firms to increase competitive advantage through initiatives such as automating business processes, creating greater operational efficiencies, building deeper customer relationships, and creating new revenue streams based on technology-enabled products and services. DX is a journey, and it starts with firms embracing an IT-centric vision that guides a data-driven, analytics-first strategy. The outcome of DX initiatives depends on the ability of a firm to efficiently leverage people (talent), process, platforms, and governance to meet the firm’s business objectives.
Die digitale Transformation ist für mittelständische Unternehmen (100 bis 999 Mitarbeiter) ein absolutes Muss, um im digitalen Umfeld erfolgreich zu sein. Durch eine digitale Transformation können sich Unternehmen mehr Wettbewerbsvorteile verschaffen, indem sie Geschäftsprozesse automatisieren, operative Abläufe effizienter gestalten, Kundenbeziehungen vertiefen und neue Umsatzströme durch Produkte und Services generieren, die auf modernsten Technologien basieren. Die digitale Transformation kann durchaus als Reise gesehen werden, die damit beginnt, dass Unternehmen eine IT-basierte Vision entwickeln. Diese führt dann zu einer datenorientierten Strategie, bei der Analysen im Mittelpunkt stehen. Das Ergebnis solcher Initiativen hängt von der Fähigkeit des Unternehmens ab, Menschen, Prozesse, Plattformen und den Aspekt Governance effizient zu nutzen, um die Geschäftsziele des Unternehmens zu erreichen.

The data growth explosion facing most organizations today is coinciding with the mounting demands of stagnant IT budgets and an increased need to retain data for both governance and resiliency needs. At its core, data must not only be retained but also efficiently accessed and analyzed to unlock its embedded value.
For organizations to succeed with the onslaught of devices, sensors and tools that innovation garners, data must no longer be treated as a byproduct but instead as an asset. And data-driven innovation must start at the top. That's what Michael Schrage, Fellow at MIT Sloan School's Initiative on the Digital Economy, said during the Harvard Business Review webinar, Leadership and Big Data Innovation. Find out why data experimentation, governance and culture are part of the next leadership challenge for organizations.
As of May 2017, according to a report from The Depository Trust &
Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides financial transaction and data processing services for the global financial industry, cloud computing has reached a tipping point1.
