With an on-time implementation of Tagetik for budgeting and forecasting, Onsite takes the first major step on a journey to implement world best practices in financial performance management
Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for Performance Management, Disclosure Management, Financial Governance and Business Intelligence, today announced that Onsite Rental Group (http://www.onsite.com.au) has gone live with Tagetik's Financial Performance Management platform for budgeting and forecasting. Onsite will use the Tagetik software platform to unify all of its financial performance management processes, providing one version of the truth and enabling best practices.
"We see the successful implementation of budgeting and forecasting in Tagetik as the first step on a journey to have the very best solution possible for our complete financial performance management needs, including bringing in best-practice rolling forecasts and financial reporting. The previous budgeting system was difficult to change and did not have the level of user acceptance we consider to be key to success. Tagetik's familiar Excel interface with a robust financial engine behind it proved to be ideal for our needs," says Scott McDougall, Chief Financial Officer, Onsite Rental Group.
"The CFO Group was invited by PwC to meet with the Onsite Rental Group's finance team late in 2013 in order to understand Onsite's needs for a new robust budgeting and forecasting system. After workshops to survey needs, we submitted a detailed proposal for a Tagetik solution and commenced the implementation project late in January 2014, with a go live in mid-March 2014. We consider the success of this project is due in great part to the outstanding teamwork between Onsite and the CFO Group," explains Geoff Noble, Director, CFO Group and Country Manager for Tagetik Australia.
"I was impressed with how the CFO Group worked together with the Onsite team to deliver the new budgeting and forecasting solution on time. The Tagetik consultants at the CFO Group really took great care in understanding our needs and processes and were highly committed to doing so. The result is a system that has high acceptance and a budget that everyone now owns at all levels of the organisation," continues Scott McDougall, Chief Financial Officer, Onsite Rental Group.
"We are absolutely delighted to welcome Onsite Rental Group as a Tagetik customer and member of our growing community of discerning customers in Australia and New Zealand that each have a strong vision for financial performance management in their respective organisations," concludes Manuel Vellutini - Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer at Tagetik.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures.

Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
