Issued by the FASB in 2016, the implementation dates for CECL (Current Expected Credit Loss) are approaching and it is essential that appropriate planning and implementation tasks start soon so that banks can be assured of meeting key milestones, most notable the objective of running parallel calculations for the year preceding the go live date. Proper CECL planning is a multi-discipline effort, requiring the time and effort of many of each bank’s accounting, risk and IT groups.
This informative webinar will provide a practical overview of planning and implementation considerations facing smaller, less complex financial institutions, including coverage of the following topics:
•Description of the CECL standard and comparison to the existing Incurred Loss Method (we will focus our discussion on the impact to the ALLL account)
•Review of key planning and implementation tasks including guidance needed to establish timelines, key decisions that need to be made and how to leverage existing processes
•Update on recent CECL developments including regulatory guidance on potential capital treatment and a description of the proposed auditing standard covering estimates

What comes to mind when you hear “decision making based on calculated behavioral analytics”? It’s a pretty exciting concept–one that’s new to cyber security and one that Forcepoint does very well. Join our webinar to learn how risk-adaptive protection is helping organizations:
- Continually improve security effectiveness through machine learning and AI
- Better understand risky behavior
- Automate policies
- Dramatically reduce the quantity of alerts
- Streamline and accelerate investigation of those alerts
Clinical practice guidelines are systematically developed statements based upon prevailing evidence to assist health practitioner’s in their decisioning making concerning the appropriate care to be provided for a specific clinical circumstance. A guideline is meant to offer concise instructions on how to provide healthcare services. The most important benefits of clinical practice guidelines are their potential to improve both the quality care and patient outcomes, and reduce costs. However, these guidelines are developped and communicated in prose, which often lacks the required specificity to clearly and unambiguously convey the clinical knowledge. These ambiguities can lead to the misapplication of intended therapy, causing at best a reduction in the quality of care and reduce costs, at worst causing harm.
This presentation will demonstrate the use of three OMG standards, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) & Decision Model and Notation (DMN) to represent clinical guidelines. These methods in tandem provide a means to clearly and unambiguously describe and convey the clinical knowledge. The models can be reviewed, tested and computational verified. Further, since there are clear computation semantics for the standards, the models developed based upon these standards are potentially executable. This promotes the rapid dissemination and uptake of the guidelines in a clinical setting.
The speakers will provide a brief overview of the three methods, supporting HL7 standards and supporting technologies necessary to make the guideline actionable in a clinical setting. A simple clinical model based upon the standards will be reviewed and finally shown executing. The presentation will show the potential of using these methods to model clinical knowledge and their potential of being directly executable.
SD-WAN and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) are two technologies that are on every business’s radar right now. SD-WAN can help to take away a lot of the complexity you’d find in a traditional network from a routing and configuration perspective. NFV can promise to cut the IT clutter from your business. Both of these technologies offer great advantages, but if you’re considering them, the question is, are you doing it because you want to jump on an industry trend, or have you truly considered the business benefits for your organisation?
Join Keith Langridge, VP Network Services, BT and Adrian Comley, General Manager Dynamic Network Services, BT, as they take a look at:
•The business challenges that are leading many to invest in these solutions.
•The learnings from our global deployments to date.
•DIY versus a managed service - the added demands of delivery, skills, security and on-going support can mean that managed is often the preferred option. We’ll give you our view on the value you should expect from a managed service.
An accessible mobile internet and the app economy changed the way we work over the last decade. Since then we have seen a fast progress in the world of automation, machine learning and data sciences. These new improvements in technology have mobilized companies and organizations to be faster and more efficient. But it has also come at a cost.
With Blockchain revolutionizing everything from retail operations to finance, we will take a hard look at how a combination of these technologies will change the way the PMO operates. We will look at the potential pros and cons of how fast emerging technologies create disruption and how to get ahead of it.
IT monitoring and metrics play a key role in measuring IT service management success. By properly analyzing, understanding and measuring where the true value lies in your organization, you can effectively analyze risk, add value, reduce the cost of service delivery and boost the overall performance of your service teams.
But without knowing what to measure, how to interpret the results and how to leverage your organization’s tools and data to make this possible, you’re setting yourself up for frustration and a lack of clarity in your reporting output.
On Thursday, May 17th, join BrightTALK and Vivantio’s Senior Implementation Manager Quentin McPhee to learn what you and your senior management need to inform IT decision-making and drive sustainable service improvement, in practical terms.
Quentin McPhee has more than 20 years’ experience in service management delivery and brings significant knowledge in implementing solutions for all types of organizations.
This session is not just a ‘back to basics’, but rather will set out what every ITSM organization should be measuring and how to interpret the results, plus how to sustain the measuring process to become a self-aware powerhouse. We’ll also discuss:
•What value reporting on your ITSM processes can realise
•Different types of reports and who needs them
•Tips, tricks and best practices to build out, maintain and sustain your organisation’s reporting structure
We’ll also cover real-life examples of organizations who have improved efficiency through effective data analysis.
Vivantio is a leader in help desk, IT service management and customer service software, empowering service teams to embrace automation and improve service levels at hundreds of organisations around the world.
The marketplace is changing so quickly that we need a paradigm shift in how we enable innovation in the large enterprise. When an innovation culture is relegated exclusively to the startup, our biggest brands—those who employ most of the people and drive most of the world's economy—are at risk for their very survival. And yet, sometimes it seems that the larger and more successful the company, the more difficult it is to innovate. Fortunately, Lean and Agile development gives us many of the tools we need to apply that momentum to new innovations, and to do so at enterprise scale. And now, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and other industry trends bring new mindsets and thinking to bear on this challenge.
In this session, Dean Leffingwell will illustrate how seemingly disparate practices—like Agile, scaled Agile, Lean Startup, Lean UX, DevOps, and Continuous Delivery—need not be separate initiatives, but rather a continuum that helps enterprises delivery more innovative solutions at a velocity they could only imagine before. From Minimum Viable Product to Minimum Marketable Feature, to the-smallest-package-that-can-be efficiently-released-into-production, Dean will discuss how reducing batch size enables fast feedback, and is the one elemental practice that binds them all.
Most of us are stuck building roadmaps from the ground up, filling out hundreds of required fields just to get started. But there’s a better way. Join Linda Chase, CA PPM Product Manager, to learn how to get alignment between your business goals and investments by planning from the top down with roadmaps. Simplify your roadmap and bring new ideas to market faster.

Transform your entire organization, not just a part of it. Take a modern look now that the world is focusing on business agility rather than thinking about team-level or even scaled Agile.
Many people and businesses believe that “doing Agile” will solve all their business and organizational problems. The truth is that “doing Agile”, especially team-level agility, is not the same as being an agile organization.
Authors Doug Dockery and Laureen Knudsen share their years of experience in transforming corporations and organizations to successfully compete and win in today’s fast-paced markets. Using proven techniques and stories of actual experiences in a multitude of organizations, Doug and Laureen relate what it takes to successfully transform your organization, as well as how to tell if your transformation is working.
This webinar details what you need to know to transform your business to deliver value and thrive. Coverage includes:
•What Agile means to an executive and the benefits you should be seeing
•The top failure modes and why so many transformations fail
•A framework for success, including an operational framework and a transformation framework
•How big data internal to a company is needed to successfully run a world-wide corporation today
•The definition of a modern business and what it looks like
Projects deliver outputs, but businesses need outcomes. Today’s PMO must enable that transformation, embracing business agility concepts to deliver consistent achievement of business goals and to drive top down innovation into every area of project delivery. Join Mark Price Perry, the man who literally wrote the book on the Business Driven PMO, and CA’s own Jim Tisch as they discuss:
•How to transform outputs to outcomes consistently
•The importance of innovation focused strategy and the role of the PMO in making it happen
•The modern, business driven PMO as the cornerstone of strategy execution
If your PMO is still driving people, process and tools, or if it still focuses on a single department, it is significantly hurting your chances of success. Sign up now and learn how to change your future.

ITIL, and more broadly, IT Service Management, is now a 31-year-old discipline. It was originally established in the UK under the government of Margaret Thatcher in 1985. For those working in IT Service and Support, the implications of this are profound. First, it means that IT support professionals have an enormous body of knowledge to draw upon for industry best practices. Secondly, it almost always means that other corporate services, such as HR, facilities, safety, etc., are far less mature than IT Service and Support. Savvy IT managers recognize this opportunity, and are increasingly taking up the challenge of providing enterprise leadership in corporate services.
I want to challenge leaders from both IT and non-IT services to give serious thought to the role of enterprise services in your organization. This is the kind of opportunity that doesn’t come along very often. It has the potential to transform the delivery of all services in the enterprise, while saving money and improving the quality of service that your customers receive. Moreover, it can be a game changer for your career. Enterprises worldwide are in desperate need of leadership on this issue. So if you have been looking for that next big career opportunity, it may be right in front of you!

The Internet has brought about dramatic changes in the structure, methods and operational capabilities of businesses, and how they interact with their customers, suppliers and communities. Along with the business benefits of the technological advances has come a demand for better security governance, operational risk and performance information to support business decisions and resource allocations. Unfortunately, many security metrics become shelfware or are routinely ignored because the recipients find little value in the measures, metrics and other report contents they routinely receive.
This session will:
•describe the various types and uses of metrics
•establish some common attributes of meaningful metrics
•discuss the importance of differentiating metrics by audience
•describe a process for developing meaningful metrics
•discuss the importance of performing periodic reviews and updates.
Participants will gain a better understanding of meaningful security metrics and be able to:
•Recognize some common impediments that prevent metrics from providing value
•Move beyond the metrics status quo to a portfolio of meaningful metrics
•Discriminate the security metrics provided based on audience attributes and needs
How well information flows into and out of your supply chain network can have a significant impact on your business performance. If communication and transactions are hindered, the results can be disastrous – late payments, missed deliveries, unhappy suppliers, and disgruntled customers.
Automating interactions with your trading partners can streamline your supply chain operations while increasing visibility. It means that transactions between you, your suppliers, and your buyers happen electronically and automatically. Whether you're looking to simplify supplier integration and collaboration with procure-to-pay, optimize your inventory levels with logistics track-and-trace, or leverage e-invoicing to reduce errors and contain costs, automation is essential to boosting supply-chain efficiency. And a more efficient supply chain can lead to reduced costs, greater agility, and revenue growth.
In this webinar, IDG Director of Content Marketing Strategy Rob O'Regan and OpenText™ Director of Product Marketing Greg Horton discuss the advantages of automating supply chain networks. Find out how automation can help you derive more value from your supply chain.
