In May 2010, CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the financial impact and potential return on investment (ROI) that an organization might realize from implementing CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution. To determine the impact, Forrester examined the specific costs, benefits, flexibility, and risk elements that a CA customer, Catholic Health East (CHE), experienced over the past three years using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution. From interviews conducted by Forrester, it was determined that CHE's use of CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution allowed for a significant redeployment of labor necessary to compile and distribute service-level management reports to its system office customers and enabled a similar labor cost avoidance associated with compiling and distributing reports to its hospitals or Regional Health Corporations (RHCs). Based on our interviews, Forrester projects a three-year, risk-adjusted total net present value (NPV) of $173,420, representing the net costs and benefits attributed to using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution versus CHE's previous manual processes used in service management reporting. (See details below in Costs, Benefits, Flexibility, and Risks sections). In addition, the risk-adjusted ROI was a favorable 45%, and the payback period was within 20 months.

Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better. Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before the competition is better.
In the mid-2000s, Financial Services was the first industry to strongly adopt data virtualization as a disruptive, new technology for accessing and integrating more data, faster and more easily than ever before.
Buy and sell side groups at the largest institutions led the charge, followed soon after by risk management and compliance units. The leading mutual fund providers, along with hedge funds, led the next wave of adoption. In recent years, commercial banks and insurers have accelerated their use of data virtualization. And today, analyst firms such as Gartner, Inc. and Forrester project continued data virtualization adoption for both first-time use at new firms and expanded deployments at existing sites.

Streamlining the close process is the new imperative for many financial executives in order to keep pace with the speed of information coming from various mediums. When financial information is released weeks after the period end, the risk is that this information is perceived and received as old news and less relevant for management decision making. This amplifies the perception of the finance department acting as the “back office” and just another cost center inside the organization.

As of May 2017, according to a report from The Depository Trust &
Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides financial transaction and data processing services for the global financial industry, cloud computing has reached a tipping point1. Today, financial services companies can benefit from the capabilities and cost efficiencies of the cloud. In October of 2016, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) jointly announced enhanced cyber risk management standards for financial institutions in an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR)2. These proposed standards for enhanced cybersecurity are aimed at protecting the entire financial system, not just the institution. To meet these new standards, financial institutions will require the right cloud-based network security
platform for comprehensive security management, verifiable compliance and governance and active protection of customer data

Talent management has moved to the top of the CEO’s agenda. In a 2012 global survey of CEOs and CFOs by the Economist Intelligence Unit, 53 percent of these leaders said that insufficient talent within their organization could harm them financially over the next 12 months. The number expressing financial concerns rose to 67 percent at organizations with more than 1,500 employees. Moreover, a full 83 percent of HR and business executives believe that talent programs need to be improved, according to Deloitte’s 2012 report Talent Edge 2020. With statistics like these, it’s no wonder there’s more pressure than ever on HR leaders to make the right talent decisions for their organizations and to source the right talent management systems to maximize the value of their workforce.
