    Diogenis Papiomytis, Global Director, Frost & Sullivan, Milesh Gogad, Chief Marketing Officer, GE Aviation’s Digital Group Recorded: Nov 21 2019 41 mins
    With growing passenger traffic and revenue per kilometer (RPK), airlines have to navigate increasing operational challenges. Issues like unplanned maintenance, network disruption, fuel overspend, etc., resulted in inefficiencies to the tune of $74 billion across the global industry in 2018. Frost & Sullivan estimates that data and analytics could have helped offset about $25 billion of this inefficiency and improved cost per available seat kilometer (CASK) by 0.27 cents in the process.

    Key Takeaways:

    1. Discover how much operational challenges cost the industry.
    2. Understand which parts of these challenges can be realistically addressed by data and analytics.
    3. Hear case studies of major airlines adopting digital technologies to address these challenges.

    •Select and prepare the code base

  • Key Trends and Business Models Transforming the Online Food Delivery Industry
    Key Trends and Business Models Transforming the Online Food Delivery Industry
    Sarwant Singh, Frost & Sullivan, Benjamin Flammang, Bringg and Diego Barreto, iFood Recorded: Nov 6 2019 54 mins
    How will online food delivery evolve in the future? With the rise of online food delivery, is eating in the new dining out? Online food delivery is growing rapidly all over the world due to the convenience, variety, and cost. Major cities and urban centers have been the epicenter of this evolution, primarily because of the increased penetration of smartphones and widespread internet connectivity.

    There have been significant continual investments in the industry and, more importantly, several mergers and acquisitions on a global scale. Many investment, technology, and even transportation companies are trying to eat a share of the pie.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Discuss the avenues for revenue generation and growth areas in online food delivery.
    • Understand the evolving trends that will impact the industry through 2025.
    • Identify best practices adopted by companies across the world.
  • Do Design Quality and Code Quality Matter in M&A Tech Due Diligence?
    Do Design Quality and Code Quality Matter in M&A Tech Due Diligence?
    Phil Odence, GM, Synopsys & Daniel Sturtevant, CEO and Co-founder, Silverthread Recorded: Oct 24 2019 47 mins
    (Spoiler alert: Yes.)

    In an acquisition where a software asset is a core part of the deal valuation, it’s important to understand the overall quality of the software before doing the deal. Buggy software is problematic and needs to be cleaned up, so assessing code quality is important. But also, with poorly designed software, every fix is costly, laborious, and risky. The cost of fixes can significantly affect the long-term technical and economic viability of the application, and maintaining the software can seriously degrade ROI. That’s why understanding a software system’s design and architectural health and the likely “cost of ownership” is key.

    Join us for this live webinar to learn how to paint a complete picture of the technical quality of software to avoid buyer’s remorse post-close. We’ll cover:

    •The dimensions of technical due diligence
    •The difference between design quality and code quality
    •How software architecture can have a long-term impact
    •What to look for in software design and code quality audits

  • Facilitating Business with State-of-the-Art Identity Proofing Solutions
    Facilitating Business with State-of-the-Art Identity Proofing Solutions
    Vikram Subramanian, VP of Solutions at Simeio Solutions, and John Tolbert, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole Recorded: Oct 17 2019 61 mins
    For traditional or Business-to-Employee (B2E) IAM, HR departments are responsible for gathering documentation from employees to determine their suitability for employment. For Business-to-Consumer (B2C) or CIAM, identity proofing can be more difficult. Depending on the nature of the business, the attributes that need to be collected and verified can differ widely. For example, Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations govern the kinds of attributes and authoritative attributes that must be collected in the finance industry.

    Identity proofing can be a labor-intensive process and customers might inconveniently be required to come in to an office and bring identification documents for agents to inspect. Newer models utilize cutting edge mobile technologies to reduce the effort and cost associated with identity proofing. These techniques not only reduce costs to consumer-facing businesses, but they often improve the user experience greatly as well.

    In this webinar, we will discuss:

    - The need for stronger identity proofing in certain types of business use cases.
    - How to prove who a customer is in a secure environment so that you can provide business to them safely.
    - Initial verification with an authoritative source like a driver’s license, the use of facial recognition to establish proof of possession, and validation of identifying information like date of birth using your birth certificate.
    - How to control what data is accessible to vendors using your phone through push notifications.

    KuppingerCole Lead Analyst John Tolbert will speak about traditional identity proofing solutions and their common shortcomings for organizations and users or customers alike.

    He will be joined by Vikram Subramanian, Vice President of Solutions at Simeio, who will present a secure and easy way of identity proofing that serves both service providers and users relinquishing MFA and passwords.

    Understanding the risks associated with open source software has become the norm in tech due diligence but not all approaches are created equal.

    •The types of risk around open source software

  • Top 5 Predictions, Growth Opportunities, and Trends in Southeast Asian Defense
    Top 5 Predictions, Growth Opportunities, and Trends in Southeast Asian Defense
    Georgia Edell, Consulting Analyst - Aerospace, Defense & Security, Frost & Sullivan Mar 10 2020 5:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Military spending in Southeast Asia has increased tremendously in the past decade. The primary supplier countries (the US, China, and Russia) still play a significant role, along with the EU; however, countries in the region are also pursuing the indigenous defense industry. This is being attempted through technology transfers and offset requirements but will not become the primary means of enhancing capability in the region in the short term.

    Countries are allocating higher budgets for defense as a proportion of GDP, much of which is going toward revitalizing maritime capabilities. A key driver of this trend is the continued tension in the region surrounding territorial disputes of the South China Sea. This is forecasted to remain a focal point in the coming years and influence defense decisions and inter-regional and intra-regional relationships. As territorial claims remain a point of contention, many nations are shoring up their maritime fleets and capabilities, especially submarines. By understanding the defense ecosystem through some of the geopolitical, technological, and economic trends of ASEAN, market participants will be better prepared to make strategic decisions for the future.

    Key Takeaways:

    • South China Sea territorial disputes are driving ASEAN nations to strengthen maritime defense capabilities.
    • Increased use of technology transfers and offset requirements are being used in an attempt to support the indigenous defense industry in the region.
    • China remains an essential influence in the area as a trade partner and rival claimant in the South China Sea disputes, creating geopolitical and economic implications for ASEAN nations concerning their defense decisions.
