Centralised control lowers exposure to risk within 80 operating companies in the group
7 February , 2014 - London, UK - Tinubu Square, a leading source of credit risk solutions for trade credit insurers and businesses, has today announced that Tinubu RMC SaaS (Risk Management Center) has provided a platform for the centralised control of trade credit risks for Dentsu Aegis Network, the world's leading media and digital communications group. 80 operating companies within the Dentsu Aegis Network, located in just under 50 different countries have been able to fine-tune their credit insurance policies and control their trade credit exposure more effectively following the extensive software roll-out.
Dentsu Aegis Network, which is made up of the global brand businesses of Carat, Dentsu, Isobar, iProspect, Posterscope and Vizeum deployed Tinubu RMC to provide it with extensive management data relating to its trade credit arrangements with customers, aggregate its exposure to trade credit risk by region, country, company and division and make strategic decisions based on the daily credit intelligence and operational reporting delivered by the system.
As a cloud-based, SaaS solution, Tinubu RMC can be implemented without impacting on existing in-house IT systems. This has enabled Dentsu Aegis Network to carry out its deployment in multiple countries, supported by a system that is available in six different languages and provides financial data and calculations in 49 currencies.
John Coyle, Dentsu Aegis Network's Global Credit Manager said: "We wanted a single view of management data across all the operating companies in the group and across many different territories. Tinubu RMC has delivered this as a SaaS platform, giving us an invaluable tool that can be accessed from any location, in real-time, providing a key advantage in terms of controlling and managing our trade credit, lowering our exposure to risk and enabling us to refine our credit insurance policies worldwide."
Integration of Tinubu RMC was carried out in phases, with different countries coming online at different stages over the last 18 months. As the Group has acquired new companies, the scalability of Tinubu RMC has proven invaluable, enabling Dentsu Aegis Network to expand its usage as and where it is needed.
Dentsu Aegis Network is making use of the latest release of the Tinubu Risk Management Center which was designed specifically for business-to-business organisations. This solution delivers a comprehensive view of buyer risk throughout the enterprise and bridges the gap between back-office accounts, ERP and front-line CRM systems to help companies manage trade receivables and payments from existing and potential customers at local and/or international levels.
Mike Feldwick, Head of UK & Ireland at Tinubu Square, said: "We managed this project in a close partnership, and whilst it was a major undertaking for both ourselves and Dentsu Aegis Network, it has been a great example of how a SaaS platform like Tinubu RMC can be implemented to consolidate trade credit management decisions and deliver impactful results in a short time-span. Almost 100 people within the Dentsu Aegis Network are now utilising the platform on a regular basis to make decisions that will benefit the Group on a short and long-term basis, and it continues to evolve as the organisation's requirements change."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
