Welcome to the first-ever edition of
Intelligent CIO APAC magazine.
This is the latest addition to the
ever-expanding Lynchpin Media stable and
the magazine will bring you the latest news,
opinions and in-depth case studies looking at
the most cutting-edge implementations.
Our inaugural cover story showcases
Australian residential property developer,
Henley Homes. The company has
implemented a range of Hyland’s Content
Services Management software solutions to
help improve its cash flow and the control of
millions of files relating to more than 2,000
projects across Australia.
The evaluation process, led by CIO Jeremy
Bree and his team, looked at a number
of content services platforms, and they
identified Hyland’s OnBase platform as a
front-runner based on the type of functions
it provided and the number of features they
would be able to call upon.
“We have seen cases where, for example,
something that was previously taking
half an hour has been reduced to three
minutes,” said Bree. “In other cases, we see
step improvements, so everyone who has to
access something further down the process
has better, faster processes and therefore
saves time. So in essence, there is less dead
time spent on our processes.” You can find
out much more by turning to p56.
On p61 we look at how Yoma Bank has
transformed its multi-channel customer
experience. The bank selected Fusion
Essence, the front-to-back core banking
solution with integrated digital channels, to
enable complete restructuring of the bank
around the customer experience and support
the launch of digital banking services.
Hal Bosher, Advisor to the Board at Yoma
Bank, said: “We want to put the bank at the
center of our customers’ lives, and we believe
that the seamless, end-to-end coverage that
Fusion Essence delivers is absolutely vital to
“Our Fusion Essence implementation goes
far beyond a core banking upgrade – it has
been a catalyst for much broader changes
across the bank.”
Elsewhere, Vinod Kumar, CEO, Subex, tells us
about the challenges facing manufacturing
firms and how they can get ahead of attackers.
With attacks on manufacturing
organizations being particularly disruptive
and, with the on-going convergence of IT
and OT systems, it’s critical that CIOs take
steps to secure their critical infrastructure.
He tells us: “A strong cybersecurity posture is
not just a matter of choice or due diligence,
but a critical business requirement that
needs to evolve and mature by constantly
assessing the threats and deploying controls
to thwart such attacks to discourage the
actors behind them. Otherwise, erosion of
credibility and loss of revenue will be swift.”
