Investec Asset Management cambia nome in Ninety One

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 novembre 2019

Cape Town e Londra – Investec Asset Management ha rivelato il suo nuovo nome e logo, Ninety One, che verranno implementati dopo il completamento dell’uscita della società dal Gruppo Investec. Il demerger avrà luogo nel primo trimestre del 2020, previa approvazione da parte degli azionisti di Investec plc e Investec ltd.La nuova identità riflette l’eredità dell’azienda. Investec Asset Management infatti è nata come start-up dell’asset management in Sudafrica nel 1991. Oggi gestisce 132.8 miliardi di euro* per clienti istituzionali e consulenti in tutto il mondo, tra cui alcuni dei più grandi e rilevanti asset owner. Il nuovo nome, Ninety One, rispecchia quindi la storia della società mentre la brand proposition riflette la sua natura lungimirante, resiliente e agile.Commentando il nuovo nome, Hendrik du Toit, Joint CEO di Investec e fondatore di Investec Asset Management, ha dichiarato: “Nel 1991, quando abbiamo iniziato la nostra attività in Sudafrica, il cambiamento era alle porte. Insieme alle sfide che il cambiamento porta con sé, è arrivata anche la possibilità di investire in un futuro migliore. Essere parte di quel cambiamento ci ha reso ciò che siamo. Ci ha insegnato ad essere audaci, solidi e agili; a credere che gli investimenti attivi possano essere una forza positiva. Il nostro viaggio ci ha insegnato a vedere il mondo in modo diverso, a riconoscere e reagire al cambiamento e all’incertezza. Oggi è questo che ci contraddistingue. Cambiamo il nostro nome, ma non chi siamo”.

AMVETS Partners with Sync.MD to Revolutionize Veteran Health Records Management

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 12 novembre 2019

AMVETS and Sync.MD announced a strategic partnership formed for the purpose of streamlining health record management for veterans. This follows the implementation of the VA MISSION Act in June 2019 that allows eligible veterans to choose care in the community at VA expense. AMVETS and Sync.MD plan to provide more than 250,000 veterans with expanded personalized health information options through Sync.MD’s patented technology to install and transport complete medical records securely on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. “Sync.MD is thrilled to be entering this relationship with AMVETS,” said Eugene Luskin, Sync.MD CEO. “We have successfully improved care coordination in the private health sector through the use of our technology, and we believe those who served our country also deserve the best health care delivery and coordination possible. We are delighted to be able to help make that happen.”
The first phase of the partnership involves the launch of a pilot to validate how the health service functions of AMVETS and the Sync.MD technology can work together. Both parties expect that the relationship will deliver significant improvements in the health care of veterans in terms of more timely access to medical information, reduced errors and oversights, and the ability to link otherwise incompatible medical records systems.“Health care coordination is critical to ensuring the wellness of veterans who often face a host of overlapping medical issues. This starts with empowering veterans, as well as their spouses and caregivers in many cases, with the ability to consolidate treatment records from multiple sources, so that at any given time a provider can appreciate a patient’s complete medical history,” said AMVETS Chief Advocacy Officer Sherman Gillums. “The partnership between AMVETS and Sync.MD represents a major step forward in the effort to put veterans in greater control of their health care and ultimately their lives.”

Four Providers of Expense Management Software Named IDC Innovators

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 1 ottobre 2019

International Data Corporation (IDC) today published a new IDC Innovators report profiling four companies competing in the developing market segments of expense management technology. The four companies are Divvy, Fyle, Pleo, and XpenseOne. Travel and expense (T&E) management applications provide travel, expense, and invoice management services that work alongside enterprise resource planning (ERP), human resources, and accounting systems to create a single, connected process for managing an organization’s spend. While the software enables employees to input expenses for approval through a desktop, browser, or mobile application, employees have come to expect consumer-grade interfaces for their enterprise tools and often experience difficulties interacting with expense systems, navigating the internal travel booking and reporting processes, and tracking expenses in real time. Meanwhile, expense managers have an equally difficult job managing, validating, and analyzing corporate spend. The best practices within the expense management process must improve the experience for both the employee and expense managers. “The user experience will be a key differentiator for expense management software providers. There must be exploration of and investment in technologies like chatbots, optical character recognition, and machine learning that help streamline and simplify the expense management process. Doing so will free up time so employees can focus on work that brings more value to their organization,” said Kevin M. Permenter, research manager, Enterprise Applications at IDC.

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 24 settembre 2019

Aloft Chicago Mag Mile, the newest Aloft property in Chicago and the largest in North America, recently implemented Evention’s Automated Cash Operations Management solution.
The solution leverages cash recycling and cloud-based reconciliation, which eliminates general cash management error and increases operational efficiency throughout the hotel. Furthermore, this automated back office process completely transforms the hotel’s cash management, allowing the property to focus more on its guests.The solution’s automation provides complete visibility to cash. It depends on auto-reconciliation and detailed cash tracking coupled with advanced robotics to issue and receive cash from hotel cashiers.”Evention has significantly reduced the time required to process and reconcile daily cash,” said Aloft Chicago Mag Mile Controller, Jim Buchanan. “This solution has also increased accuracy, streamlined cash operations, and reduced the administrative burden of manual reconciliations.”As a technology leader, the Aloft Chicago Mag Mile also introduced automation in other areas of the hotel. In addition to implementing Evention’s back office automation, the property relies on Botlr, a robot butler, to increase efficiency within front office operations and add a fun, interactive, tech-forward component to the guest experience. Botlr can roam the property independently, even on the elevators, to deliver items including snacks, towels, and toothbrushes.

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 13 agosto 2019

Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession, today announced the acquisition of Disciplined Agile (DA). The DA toolkit is the world’s only comprehensive agile body of knowledge (BOK) that provides straightforward and practical guidance to help individuals, teams and enterprises choose their “way of working” in a context-specific way. Key principles of DA include customer centricity, being pragmatic rather than purist, providing a range of agile and lean options, applying context-based practices, and optimizing flow across the entire enterprise. Applying the DA toolkit allows organizations to customize any method or framework – such as traditional, Scrum, or SAFe – to drive outcomes that differentiate them from their competitors. The combination of these two organizations offers a unique and unparalleled value proposition to stakeholders who are committed to improving their personal, team and enterprise agility.

InfoTech to Expand Privileged Access Management Across United States and South Asia

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 9 giugno 2019

Senhasegura, a leader in Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions, and OneWorld InfoTech announced at the Rocky Mountain Information Security Conference (RMISC) 2019, the largest security conference in the Rocky Mountain region, held at Colorado Convention Center, that OneWorld InfoTech has been appointed as a value-added distributor to promote senhasegura’s award-winning PAM solution in the United States.
Both organizations have already been working under a strategic alliance agreement and recently further strengthened the relationship by establishing a Center of Excellence in Bangladesh to serve the South Asia region.Privileged access management is now considered as one of the most critical security controls which can significantly reduce the overall risk surface. Privileged account misuse is often the cause for the growing number of data breaches around the world.“Privileged credentials are by far the most common entry point that threat actors target to unlock security controls and move laterally within an organization to steal its crown jewels and hence it is paramount for organizations to implement a well-designed next-generation PAM solution such as senhasegura,” said Maruf Ahmed, Global Director of Technology and Services at OneWorld InfoTech.
Marcus Scharra, CEO of senhasegura, commented that “we are delighted to announce our global strategic partnership with OneWorld InfoTech and keen to leverage their vast experience in PAM practice to help businesses restrict and protect privileged accounts to increase security, reduce enterprise risk and ensure regulatory compliance utilizing our best-in-class solution.” Senhasegura has always been at the forefront of innovation. “We are the only PAM manufacturer with certificate management offering in the world. We are designing new ways of protecting systems and data at all levels. We saw in OneWorld a mix that started with ‘the right foot,'” concludes the CEO of senhasegura.

I sindacati della dirigenza s’incontrano a Palermo in un convegno sul middle management nella scuola italiana

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 13 Mag 2019

Palermo 24 maggio 2019 dalle ore 8 alle 14 presso l’Aula Magna dell’IC A. UGO Via E. Arculeo, 39. Anche Udir ha risposto all’invito dell’Associazione Nazionale Collaboratori Dirigenti Scolastici e presenterà la sua proposta su un tema così cruciale come valorizzare il ruolo dei collaboratori dei dirigenti scolastici, per migliorare la scuola dell’autonomia. Come riporta la rivista specializzata Orizzonte Scuola, “il convegno sarà l’occasione per chiedersi se il riconoscimento dei “quadri intermedi” – che ai sensi dell’art. 25 comma 5 delD.lgs. 165/2001 e dell’art. 1 comma 83 della Legge 107/2015 operano nella visione dell’autonoma Istituzione scolastica al fianco dei dirigenti scolastici, dei docenti, dei DGSA e del personale non docente – possa considerarsi una necessaria innovazione contrattuale o rimanere un’utopia nel sistema scolastico italiano”, oltre a essere un importante “momento di confronto unitario per capire se è arrivato il tempo per sostenere nelle sedi proprie quelle azioni giuridiche e contrattuali finalizzate all’istituzione delle figure quadro nella scuola italiana attraverso la determinazione di procedure di accesso, di selezione, di carriera, di formazione”. Tante le varie sigle della dirigenza scolastica, prenderà la parola anche la giovane Udir, nella persona del suo presidente nazionale, Marcello Pacifico, che affronterà il cuore del tema nella relazione su “Come riconoscere il middle management nel Ccnl 2019/21”, perché possa avviarsi anche per via contrattuale il pieno riconoscimento della vice-dirigenza e del lavoro svolto dai tanti collaboratori del preside e si possa superare l’attuale impasse dovuto anche alla spending review. Presente anche l’ANCI Sicilia piccoli Comuni, “poiché è nelle piccole realtà locali che le relazioni istituzionali in prima istanza vengono tenute dai Collaboratori Fiduciari di plesso che quotidianamente si adoperano in tutti i modi per consentire all’Istituzione scolastica di espletare al meglio il proprio servizio per alunni e famiglie”, dopo il processo di dimensionamento delle scuole autonome che ha falciato negli ultimi dieci anni un quarto delle sedi di presidenza. Prenderà parte anche il Miur con un rappresentante del ministro Bussetti.

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 30 aprile 2019

Publication metadata. The purpose of this specific study is to provide the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) with: Updated information regarding the association or occurrence of pelagic sharks and rays in different fisheries; Updated information regarding data collection and methodological approaches for the assessment of conservation status of sharks; A critical review of existing Conservation and Management Measures (CMMs) for sharks and of the current conservation status of the species concerned; and Proposals to improve and/or provide alternative options for conservation and management of sharks taking into account any recent methodological advances and new data or information. The species of interest are the main pelagic sharks caught by pelagic fisheries, including under Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements (longline and purse seine fisheries). The study also considers some pelagic elasmobranchs included in Article 13 (species prohibitions) of the Council Regulation 2016/72 fixing for 2016 the fishing opportunities for certain fish stocks. The main regions focused are the oceanic regions covered by tuna-RFMOs where those species of elasmobranch are represented in the catches, specifically the Atlantic (ICCAT region), the Indian Ocean (IOTC region) and the Pacific (WCPFC and IATTC regions)

Elliott Management Supportive of SAP Initiatives

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 25 aprile 2019

Elliott Management Corporation (“Elliott”), which manages funds that collectively own €1.2 billion in common stock and economic equivalents of SAP SE (the “Company” or “SAP”), today released a statement supporting SAP’s initiation of a comprehensive review, formation of a Special Executive Board Committee and implementation of new, multi-year operational targets. In the statement, Elliott Partner Jesse Cohn and Portfolio Manager Jason Genrich also praised CEO Bill McDermott and CFO Luka Mucic on the Company’s commitment to these initiatives:“Elliott is highly supportive of the initiatives announced today, and we commend CEO Bill McDermott, CFO Luka Mucic and the entire SAP team for taking these steps. SAP is one of the great technology franchises in the world and one of the only scale software businesses with growing on-premise revenue alongside 30%+ growth in cloud revenue. The Company’s stock has been consistently undervalued relative to its revenue growth, and today’s announcement lays the groundwork for substantial value realization.“With SAP’s key strategic acquisitions in place and a multi-year S4/HANA product cycle ahead, now is the time for focused execution on these operational opportunities. SAP has set the right targets with a 75% cloud gross margin and 500 basis points of operating margin improvement. These targets balance continued revenue growth and accelerating profitability. The operational review and Special Executive Board Committee should ensure that these targets are achieved, and we look forward to hearing further details and a specific timeline at the Special Capital Markets Day later this year. We believe SAP’s management team can drive toward a highly successful result.“The combination of SAP’s growth profile, operational targets and forthcoming share repurchase analysis can generate tremendous earnings growth over the next several years. Elliott sees the potential for the Company to achieve earnings per share of €8.50 in 2023. This level of earnings growth can yield substantial returns to shareholders and realize a value-creation opportunity that is rarely available at SAP’s scale.”

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 27 marzo 2019

(Fonte: Il Sole 24 Ore Radiocor Plus) Tensioni nella prima linea manageriale di UniCredit. Secondo indiscrezioni raccolte da Radiocor, il responsabile corporate per l’Italia della banca, Giovanni Ronca, sarebbe in uscita per contrasti con i vertici poche settimane dopo il riassetto manageriale deciso dall’amministratore delegato Jean Pierre Mustier, in vista del nuovo piano industriale da varare a dicembre. Ronca era stato chiamato nel luglio del 2016 proprio da Mustier a guidare le attività corporate in Italia lasciando la filiale di New York. Al suo fianco era stato nominato Andrea Casini, responsabile delle attività retail italiane secondo lo schema caro a Mustier: due co-responsabili per ogni attività e non un solo capo in grado di farsi una propria squadra e creare potenziali ostacoli all’amministratore delegato. La riorganizzazione del 2016 era quella che aveva portato all’uscita della prima linea più vicina all’ex amministratore delegato Federico Ghizzoni, quella composta da Paolo Fiorentino, Gabriele Piccini e da Bernardo Mingrone che era da poco rientrato dall’esperienza di cfo al Monte Paschi. Ronca, genero dell’ex ministro Elsa Fornero, secondo le indiscrezioni raccolte non sarebbe stato valorizzato dalle scelte manageriali di Mustier che il mese scorso ha rinnovato la primissima linea, ignorando i due responsabili dell’Italia e mettendo a capo del Commercial banking per l’Europa occidentale Francesco Giordano e Olivier Khayat a diretto riporto dell’amministratore delegato e quindi con la supervisione anche dell’Italia. Le nomine varate a febbraio, ha spiegato Mustier, sono finalizzate a far partire il nuovo piano industriale 2020-2023 con una squadra già rodata con la responsabilità di attuarlo fin dall’avvio della pianificazione.
