Financial Process Management

To achieve financial control, there is a need to have a structured way to do Business Process Management (BPM). Process Management has two key elements:

1. Describe effective financial procedures and

2. Ensuring process completion according to the procedure description.

Standardisation of the business processes increases efficiency and reduces costs in the finance function which are an essential combination for a successful lean process. By focusing on continuous improvement of the procedures, with emphasis on risk and materiality, the efficiency of the process will increase over time.

The goal with Financial Process Management:

Corporate Governance

Performance Management

Comply with regulations

Efficiency

Quality

Key elements in Financial Process Management:

Define KPIs for measurement of the financial processes

Transparency of the process flow

Keep cost of implementation and rolling out new processes low

Continuous improvement, benchmark and review

Risk based approach

The Adra suite of products comprises: -

ACCOUNTS

An advanced and effective transaction matching software that supports automatic reconciliation of any kind of data. All forms of financial and operational reconciliations are supported, and focus can be directed exclusively to exceptions to efficiently ensure the accuracy of data.

Safyr® for JD Edwards is a powerful exploration tool to enable JD Edwards users to understand and manage the metadata in their own customized JD Edwards system or systems. Safyr helps users navigate the many tables and fields, not only be providing the ‘business’ descriptions for those objects, but also by interpreting the joins found in JD Edwards Business Views to give the user a means to understand the relationships between JD Edwards tables.

“It’s difficult to imagine how we could have integrated complex ... J.D. Edwards metadata structures into our corporate information architecture without Safyr. The cost was low compared to other methods and a fraction of the overall project budget.”

Safyr® was developed to enable our customers and partners to dramatically shorten the time to value for Information Management projects which involve data from large complex packaged enterprise systems from vendors such as SAP, Salesforce and Oracle by reducing the cost and resources needed for ERP metadata discovery whilst at the same time improving accuracy and compliance

Safyr® is the industry’s only dedicated metadata discovery software for packaged applications. Safyr gives analysts, architects and other data professionals the ability to access, understand, share and utilise the underlying data structures for these applications, whenever they need to without having to rely on technical specialists, external consultants, incomplete documentation, internet searches or partial technical solutions.

Safyr achieves this by extracting metadata from the applications as implemented and storing it so it can be easily navigated, searched, filtered, analysed, visualised using business terminology rather than needing to know physical table names.  There are many tools that can ‘reverse engineer’ a database by connecting to the RDBMS system catalog, but Safyr does this for application packages by ‘reverse engineering’ from the package’s own data dictionary tables.  This is the only practical way to get an understandable view of the package data mode.

The short video above is a brief demonstration of how Safyr can be used with JD Edwards.

Safyr is the industry’s only dedicated metadata discovery solution for the world’s most commonly used packaged applications:

IPTA

INTELLIGENT PERFORMANCE

ICT today is complex: Your network is expanding while the current situation is not optimal yet. ITPA will monitor, detect, diagnose, analyse optimise your ICT environment. ITPA will bring you overview and resolve delays and instabilities.

SMARTER PARAMETERS ANALYTICS

Delays or instabilities of your ICT environment might be caused by the parameter settings. ITPA developed a unique approach to investigate the parameter settings and to optimise them, eliminating issues and improving speed, stability and performance.

SMARTER ICT SERVICE CENTERS

Performance of applications is important, as well as the ROI for ICT. For this purpose ITPA developed a Network Operations Center (NOC) solution. Organisations can share the cost of monitoring and still keep the performance of transactions optimal.

IOT/SECURITY INNOVATION CENTERS

Due to IoT development more devices are connected to your network, causing performance issues and security risk. ITPA Group will optimize and protect your systems and still keep your transactions fast and secure.

Total IT Performance Management

Monitoring tools from most manufacturers are separated in Infrastructureand Application Monitoring. They will tell you ‘you have a problem’, and will not provide you with the cause of the issue or an answer how to resolve the issue if a transaction is slow.

ITPA makes the difference: ITPA is more than an end-2-end ICT performance monitoring service. ITPA will monitor, detect, diagnose, analyze and optimise your IT performance. We resolve the cause not the symptoms! We will investigate hardware, software, databases, operating systems, applications, external (e.g. cloud) service providers, IoT devices, security, multiple locations, multi vendor, etc.

The settings and parameters for software and applications are crucial for their performance. What worked before, will not be the optimal setting for now,  causing delays and instabilities. ITPA has developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system combined with our own Knowledge Base, capable of analysing those values and optimizing them for the fastest performance possible.

IPTA

In addition, security has a big influence on performance and can delay transactions. We optimize and protect your systems and still keep your transactions fast and secure.

Are you developing software? In a DevOps situation ITPA can simulate and pre-test the live situation capacity and impact on your IT environment and advise to optimize before go-live. This service can save you a lot of time, frustrated end-users, money and… headaches.

ITPA can also provide you with a complete overview: a Configuration Management Database (CMDB) and license compliancy check.

An inexpensive solution that is not complex to implement, how is that possible?

This is one of the most often received reactions. We understand that combining all performance and security services in one might sound like very complex and expensive. We look forward to surprising you. Not only when you look at the cost, but as well look at the results: reductions in transaction time. Reductions in waiting time because of downtime or delays. Increases in productivity, etc.

What is your impact on revenue if you are hit by unplanned downtime? The simplest way to calculate potential revenue losses during an  outage is with the equation:

Lost revenue=(GR/TH) x I x H

GR = Gross yearly revenue TH = Total yearly business hours I   =  Percentage impact H  =  Number of hours of outage

For example:

GR = € 40.000.000 revenue TH = 260 working days (52 weeks x 5 days) with 8 hrs per day = 2080 hours per year I   =  100% of the company is not able to work H  =  1 hour outage

In this calculation example the damage is € 19.230,76 per hour (!)

And you know that unfortunately outages last much longer than one hour

Because ITPA is running a Software As A Service (Saas) model you share the cost of Total Performance Management.

Theia - BI

TURN THE BI PIPEDREAM INTO A PROMISE

Theia brings multiple BI tools and assets into one visualisation.

  • Achieve a single view across all your BI tools
  • No need for costly and risky standardisation projects
  • Give IT enterprise security
  • Give users appealing visualisations
  • Blend BI data between platforms to get one version of the truth
  • Future-proof your data for acquisition or leadership change

Does your BI programme have a BI problem? If you’re like most organisations you don’t just have one BI tool. Perhaps you started off with an enterprise-level platform such as Cognos or Business Objects? But over time, visualisation tools such as Qlik and Tableau, were adopted by different departments. So now, when your CFO needs a financial report, is her data in Qlik, Cognos or Business Objects? If your CEO wants a dashboard overview, which tool should he use? Or does he actually need a blend of them all? BI was supposed to make accessing information easier. But with data siloed across multiple BI tools, joined-up decision making is harder than ever. In other words, BI has developed its own BI problem.

“No one vendor is fully addressing both enterprises’ IT-driven requirements and business users requirements for ease of use” Gartner Magic Quadrant, BI and Analytics Platforms, Feb 2015

So, how do you attain the BI dream? Do you rip, replace and kick-off a standardisation project? Standardisation is expensive. And risky. Nobody wants to face mutiny by forcing a whole set of users to give up tools they know and love. Besides, it would be fruitless anyway. As Gartner has identified, there has never been one BI tool that can do it all. Until now, that is.

Below is a brief video explaining how Theia works.
