Compliance as a practice is often seen as burden, and automation is one answer to reducing the burden. Organisations are at different levels of maturity in adopting automation in their compliance processes. However, most companies are trying to improve consistency, reduce subjectivity and use some level of tools (software, data and managed services). Best-in class organisations have automated their compliance programs to reduce the burden and cost of compliance and then re-invest those saving into further innovations.
Due diligence and knowing exactly who you are doing business with is crucial to conducting business in today’s interconnected landscape. Using Beneficial Ownership data is key to navigating the regulated business environment. Beneficial Ownership capabilities can identify the corporate hierarchy and verify the identification of customers, vendors and third parties, surfacing any connections that may expose risk to businesses.
Being a good corporate citizen is no longer just about complying with regulations; it’s also about conducting business responsibly. There are rising expectations on businesses to have full disclosure and oversight of their operations. They need to ensure ethical sourcing practices, take responsibility for risk, and promote shareholder value with good corporate citizenship.
Driven by today’s increasingly regulated business environment, supply and compliance functions are more interconnected than ever and utilise similar data. Organisations need a holistic and detailed picture of all their relationships to effectively manage risk and protect corporate reputation.

Of all the Agile practices, none is more foundational than the inspect & adapt cycle of the retrospective. Even if you struggle with every other aspect of Agile, if you consistently engage in productive retrospectives, you will get better.
Industry surveys and studies suggest that 80% or more of Agile organizations have at least some distributed teams. Most of the traditional retrospective methods assume that all team members are co-located.
Running effective retrospectives for distributed teams presents unique challenges, but also, potentially, some great advantages. In this webinar, Agile coach and Instant Agenda co-founder Michael Ball-Marian will discuss the three greatest challenges to running distributed Agile retrospectives and how to solve them. Michael will share a variety of tips and techniques that you can use in any retrospective, co-located or distributed. Finally, he’ll present a few ways in which a distributed retrospective can actually be better than a co-located one.
