Reducing complexity, driving standardization and automation

TORI’s client, a Tier 1 global investment bank, wanted to identify a strategic partner to assist in the delivery of a standardized and highly virtualized technology platform and the operation of its core IT infrastructure services. Find out how TORI tackled the problem.

Managing IT Operations in a State of Constant Flux

Today environmental and business changes, as well as new and emerging technology, evolves faster than a typical, traditional migration programme. The consequence of this is that both migration and operations has to be done simultaneously and CIO/CTOs have to evolve their management to manage operations in a state of constant flux.

The Four Roles of the CEO

Most people are thrust into a position of leadership from a high competence in a managerial or functional role. At that stage there is limited support as to how the role has changed and often it has still some managerial and functional components that new leaders often keep hanging on to.

Level 1 Control - Is it Worth the Effort?

For many years, level 1 control was either thin or absent in the 3 lines of Defence model adopted by many financial services organisations. However, in recent years, it has become the linchpin of an efficient control environment. Even in organisations where cost rationalisation is a core strategic objective, boards are freeing up more money and more resources to strengthen control resilience in the first line.
