Aon plc Research Reports
On August 18, 2014, Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc, said that defined benefit pension schemes should divert sponsor contributions into alternative financing strategies as they climb towards healthier funding status, with many of the schemes over 100% funded. Aon Hewitt's recent survey of 86 clients with recently completed funding valuations showed that 30% of them were substantially above 100% funded, while 42% of them were around 100% funded on a best estimate basis. "As they become less keen on paying in cash we are already starting to see more companies considering alternative ways of providing that security, including escrow, charges over assets, letters of credit, surety bonds and other mechanisms. As ever with pensions, there is no one-size-fits-all but we believe that alternative financing solutions are an option that every DB pension scheme should be considering as part of their strategy to reach pensions stability," said Lynda Whitney, Partner at Aon Hewitt.

What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
