Danny King had been programming since he was six years old. He had the interest and ability to be successful in the well regarded Computer Science program at Durham University but didn’t have the grades to get in. Danny tracked down the head of admissions and talked him into giving him a spot by using evidence of his coding prowess. Danny felt lucky but didn’t want to leave opportunity to chance. He began thinking about ways to better communicate capability.

For more than a hundred years, colleges and employers have relied on transcripts—a list of courses and grades—as a primary signal of capability. The faster the world of work changes, the more the transcripts lose signal value and the more we need finer grained and more dynamic ways of communicating capabilities.

Shortly after graduating in 2012 (at the top of his class), King and fellow Durham graduate Alan Heppenstall launched Accredible to build the credentialing infrastructure for the world.

Ten years later, Accredible has issued almost 50 million credentials including digital certificates to signify completion of a learning experience and digital credentials that verify the demonstration of specific skills.

The 1,700 Accredible clients include leading tech firms such as Google, Slack, and Stripe that use credentials to memorialize the professional learning of staff as well as customer training. Leading universities including ASU, Harvard, and Purdue, use Accredible credentials to help students showcase their achievements to the world. The CFP Board uses Accredible to award credentials to financial planners.

Learners store credentials in their Accredible wallet and can incorporate them into their LinkedIn profile.

To increase the value of credentials, Accredible launched Spotlight Directory which allows issuers to provide a home base for people that hold their credentials. For example, the Hootsuite Certified Professionals Directory showcases everyone that has earned a Hootsuite credential.

Verifiable Skills

The first step in the Accredible strategy was to build world class credentialing infrastructure not only to help learners more fully tell their story but to deliver employers trustworthy evidence to back up skill assertions.

Traditional forms of communicating capabilities are not only limited but often falsified. A 2020 Savoy Stewart Survey found that 63% of job seekers admitted to lying or exaggerating on their resume.

Instead of relying on the limitations of transcripts and potential inaccuracies of resumes, digital credentials in a portable record and Verified on a distributed ledger offer a more robust and trustworthy signaling system in support of talent transactions. Employers, scholarship organizations, and higher education institutions can quickly and inexpensively verify a record.

The acquisitions of Badgr by Instruction and Credly by Pearson this year illustrate the anticipated value of credentialing infrastructure.

The corporate shift to skills-based hiring and development will be powered by credentialing but is likely to be messy. “Competing skill taxonomies will emerge and different organizations will move to one or the other depending on usage and fit,” said King.

When most learners and workers have a digital learning and employment record (probably in the second half of this decade), employers and education institutions with permission will be able to pull their own tailored extracts of records full of credentials and make outbound offers. Rather than talent searching for opportunity, credentials will enable opportunity to find talent.

Credentials Memorialize Pathways, And Now Build Them

Accredible hosts a market of career enhancement courses at Course cards show start and end dates, pre-requisites, and cost.

There are other course marketplaces but they don’t make learning pathways visible. “Students don’t know the ROI of options,” said King. Accredible launched Recommendations to change that. Based on earned credentials, courses relevant to a learner's career goal are suggested. In the first month after launch, a large percentage of learners followed recommendations to new courses.

Now that Accredible is making pathways more visible, the next step is to make them more affordable. The company is exploring ways to de-risk course participation with a pay on completion approach.

Employers are looking for more than degrees and transcripts to signal capabilities. Learners are looking for personalized learning pathways connected to opportunity and better ways to communicate their growth. Digital credentials are part of the solution for learners and employers. And, ten years after launch, King and Heppenstall built the credentialing infrastructure for the world.

Killexams : Holy Spirit instructed me to stand before oracle — Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwase III

The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwase III, speaks with FRIDAY OLOKOR on his reign and national issues

You recently travelled to Canada. What was the purpose of the trip?

There were a lot of positive reactions to my emergence (as king). Clearly, the world was watching and we already had family ties to Canada. There were a lot of people who reached out, wanting to see how they could partner with the Warri Kingdom, because we had made a call that everyone in the Diaspora should please join us in rebuilding (the kingdom).

So, I think our sons and daughters who are in Canada, listened to that speech, and it inspired them to want to work with us. That is coupled with the fact that we already had family ties in Canada. We decided to use that opportunity to see what professional and developmental opportunities there that we could bring back to Warri.

We used that as an opportunity to kill several birds with one stone. It was a bit unorthodox but we decided to go there and serve as a brand ambassador of sorts and open the gates to Warri kingdom.

Warri is known to be a business environment. How do you intend to open up the kingdom to the global community?

That is also one of the reasons we went to Canada. The government has done the best they can and they are always doing their best to open up, not just Warri but all of Nigeria. It is good when there is out of the box thinking, because one needs to do something different to attract progress and development. I felt that while my role is defined as a traditional ruler, I am able to have some sort of influence over the sort of investments we will like to see.

We (Warri) are not a sovereign kingdom. Nigeria is a sovereign nation but ultimately, we know that in doing the best we can to attract progress and development to Warri, all tiers of government— from the local to state and federal— will benefit ultimately; depending on how it is structured.

I think it was a former President of the United States of America, John Kennedy, who said, ‘Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country’. I see this as this is something I can do for my people and my country.

What are your short-term and long-term plans for the people of Warri?

The short-term plan is to lift their heads up and this is really beyond Warri people. The past few years have been quite tough for Warri people, and Nigerians in general. Sometimes, one may not necessarily have what the people think is the solution. I am sure if one shares $10bn to the people of Warri and all Nigerians, they will say one has given them the solution to their problems. While we don’t have that money to share, we are able to open up doors and avenues to make money come in. The immediate plan is to deliver them hope. Once, one is able to deliver people hope, one can then prepare their minds for the increase and blessings that are expected to come in. That way, they will be able to make better use of it, because if one just makes all that money available to people who are not mentally and emotionally ready for such blessings, the likelihood is that they may not use it well.

When you were announced as the Olu of Warri designate, some people disagreed with your selection. How do you intend to reconcile such people and win their support to have a successful reign?

If you look at the history of Warri kingdom, there is always some sort of contention when succession is ongoing. Ultimately when the king emerges, everybody usually comes together and work for the common good.

Unfortunately, this time, there was a bit of politicking. By politicking, I mean it was more intense than usual. Now that we have emerged and we are supposed to be the father of all, we are still doing all we can do reach out to everybody.

The message that comes from me and the throne is that there is no individual too black, too bad or too sinful to be reconciled. We always compare the role of the king to the keeper of the forest. Even God himself created all kinds of animals— both the wild and domesticated ones. God did not create all soft and good animals.

We have not labelled anybody good or bad. Those people on the other side should also forgive themselves and come because even while we are still inviting them, it is likely they have still not forgiven themselves.

But, we keep the door open and hopefully with time, everybody will heal and know that truly, they are welcome.

What was the first thought that ran through your mind when it was announced that you would be the next Olu of Warri?

It was very heavy because I had seen my father there for 28 years. As I got older, I really saw how heavy the responsibility was and what had happened in 2015 after my father passed on and the opportunity bypassed me, I felt that I would resign to the life of regular individual. But, it (opportunity to be king) came back and at that point, I needed to mentally readjust my mind that I was now going to be the father of not just my biological children but all Itsekiri people. It was a serious and heavy moment. But, with the help of my wife and even my children, it has been made easier with each passing day.

It was alleged that some people opposed your announcement as the Olu of Warri because of your relationship and affinity with the Yorubas. How do you feel about that if it is true?

When you say my affinity or relationship with the South West, I understood where they were coming from, and I always made it clear that this was always going to be determined by God. And, if you and even those who opposed it want to be fair, they will admit it was God’s doing.

There was no way one could lobby or try to influence the outcome. For the first time in our latest history, even down to the process of the oracle confirming, it was open to a lot of people. It was not as secret as it was in 2015 or when my father emerged in 1987; definitely not as it was when my grandfather emerged in the fifties. Back then, there was no media; it was all in-house and secret. But, this time, it was actually open to the public and everybody saw what transpired.

I believe that the same God who started this process is going to heal and unify everybody, no matter how strong their sentiments are in whatever direction.

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, was said to have intervened in the crisis that heralded your nomination. What is your relationship with him and do you intend to partner with him in any way going forward?

First, I am thankful to the Kabiyesi because I know you say he intervened. I am not entirely sure of how much of an intervention it was though. We woke up in the morning of the day it was announced publicly to hear that Kabiyesi had sent two royal representatives, and it was a complete shock to us. We saw that as the king knowing the Yoruba affiliation, and wanting to show that they can support one who is seen to be part of them. Without any interview or saying anything; it was just the gesture, and it ended up adding weight, glamour and colour to the process.

He is a relatively young man like I am and I know that we are both very progressive in our outlooks. It is always good to know that one has somebody like one who thinks along the same line, and is facing the same situation that one is in.

Many people do not like associating with traditional rulers because they believe that they are involved in fetish practices. As a Christian, did you have such fears?

The answer is no, I don’t have such fears. Second; yes, I am a Christian. Christianity is more importantly about one’s individual’s relationship with Jesus Christ. When the Holy Spirit tells you to do a particular thing; even to fellow Christians, it may not sound Christian-like.

For instance, when it came to standing before the oracle, a lot of people felt that because I am a Christian, I wouldn’t do it. However, I prayed about it and the Holy Spirit made it very clear to me not to be afraid. I was told to go and stand (before it), and I stood. I believe that the spiritual world can be accessed by anyone of any faith. If one shies away from the spiritual world because one is afraid or because one is not aware of how it operates, one will lose out on a lot of good things that God himself has destined for one.

It is really about knowing one’s identity, knowing who one is and being bold in that identity.

Some people believe that traditional rulers no longer command the respect they used to. If that is true, how do you think traditional rulers can command more respect from members of the public?

The only way I can answer that question is by saying ‘time can do and undo things’. Time can change perceptions; and while time is doing what it does, it is also about how the individuals and institutions evolve. Culture and tradition are supposed to be dynamic. However, it does not mean that one has to throw everything out and try to reinvent them. That way, one would lose one’s essence.

One has to keep one’s essence which is like one’s anchor, and reinvent one’s style and approach. If one is able to do that, even with the passage of time, Nigerians will find their way back to favourably looking towards traditional rulers.

The Niger Delta region, which Warri is part of, generates a lot of money for the country but is in a bad shape. What plans do you have as regards working with the government or oil companies to clean up the environment and make the region more conducive for living?

In that regard, what one can do is to present one’s plans in tandem with what the government and oil companies are doing. As a traditional ruler, one is domiciled there with the people, so one experiences the same things that one’s people are suffering. That way, one is in a position to go to them (government and oil companies) and say, ‘You have a budget or developmental plan, and as grand as it may seem, can we meet at a point so that your plan works with the consent of our people’.

One has to make sure that one’s local government chairman is in on one’s plan. One also has to involve those who approve the budget in the National Assembly, as well as those who are going to put line items to say they want to build a certain number of buildings, boreholes and other amenities. One needs to make sure that all those monies are well spent, if not, things will just be replicated and they will not really address the needs of the people. Once we are able to come together and synergise plans, things will work out for everybody.

You are now a First Class traditional ruler. What are some of the things you used to do before that you can no longer do as a king?

Immediately one becomes a king, one is now a symbol. One is held in high esteem, so the way one carries oneself has to change. It is almost like the people look at one and they draw pride, confidence and inspiration from one.

Of course, there are certain things, traditionally and even generally, that is not expected of a king.

And, there are some things that are neither here nor there, that even if as a king one decides to do them, inasmuch as it may be shocking to people to see the king doing it, it could still inspire them, that even if the king decides to do this particular thing, he does it with class and in a regal way. I think that is also part of the things that make the institution and the individual relatable to the people as the times are changing.

Warri has produced a lot of comedians and other entertainers. What plans do you have to discover and groom new talents from Warri kingdom?

I don’t know if I necessarily have a plan in that direction. But, one thing I know is that I will do anything for anyone who is from Warri that I meet. It does not even necessarily have to be an Itsekiri person, because I see myself as a father to everybody who calls Warri home. Anybody who comes from here and shows me that they have certain abilities and talent, I will do all that is in my power or use my network to help them. If possible, I will provide a local platform for them to demonstrate that ability and perhaps, based on that platform that they were able to perform for the Olu of Warri, they could be picked up by the media at a higher level. If that sort of platform is what works for them, we will create it.

You are a handsome man. How were you able to ward off temptation from other women and get settled with your heartthrob?

Women aside, this is a world full of temptation and the truth is that if one wants to succeed in life, one has to know what the big picture is and what is important. If one pays attention to every single distraction, one will not achieve what God has called one to achieve.

It is about understanding ones identity and what one has been called to do. One’s focus should be on all those things.

I am very much a family man, and I have always been that way. I will also like to add that time shows one what is important. A lot of these distractions and temptations are not important in the long run, no matter how flashy they are. It is about looking beyond the flashiness and knowing where one is going to.

So, women could be distractions?

The truth is that if one is a married man, any woman who is not one’s wife, that one is not working with in a professional manner or one is not helping out, is clearly a distraction, and vice versa.

A lot of people are advocating for Nigeria to be restructured to truly solve the present challenges the country is facing. Are you an apostle of restructuring?

I think what you call restructuring, some people may call it ‘retooling’ or ‘readjusting’. It depends on what one calls it. But, what is clear to everyone is that despite how hard the government is trying, certain things are clearly not working. For things to better trickle down to the masses, and for resources to be more efficiently applied, things have to be revisited without sentiments. Once we do that, we will be able to better manage the resources we have to make Nigeria get to where it needs to get to.

Some churchgoers were recently killed in cold blood in Owo, Ondo State. What is your view about the rising spate of insecurity in the country?

First, my heart goes out to the people of Owo. As soon as I heard about the incident, I got in touch with my friend and brother, the Olowo of Owo, to sympathise and commiserate with him. It was really unfortunate what happened. I think it demonstrates what Nigerians and even the government already knows, that we need to revamp our security apparatus all across the country. That is glaring.

The first responsibility of any government is to protect lives. In any part of the country, the government must be able to certain security of lives and properties. It does not matter who is responsible for the insecurity and chaos, there will always be such elements in society. The most important thing is for the government to always be up to the task, to make sure such criminal minds are not able achieve their evil aims.

For me, the take home from the Owo incident is that our security architecture needs to be seriously revisited. The life of every single Nigerian, in whatever part of the country of whatever faith, is very important.

What fond memories do you have of your father that you will never forget?

He was an open, kind, generous and firm man. He was a lot of things rolled into one, and I think especially now, just barely a year into my reign and knowing that he occupied this position for 28years, I appreciate and respect him even more.

What was your childhood like?

Though it is hard to believe, my childhood was actually very normal. My father did well not to overly expose us to palace life and its activities. He really did well to make sure we had a normal childhood, even though we never lost track of our identities. My childhood experience was similar to what any other middle-class Nigerian family had, growing up in the eighties.

What was your wife’s reaction when it was announced that you would be the king?

Her reaction was similar to mine. We understood the gravity of what was coming and we knew there would be some changes in our lives, as we were about to go from private individuals to public figures. It was also a feeling of gratitude because it is a privilege to be called to this office to serve. While we were grateful for the opportunity, we also understood the magnitude of what the assignment was. As a matter of fact, it is something we are still learning with each passing day.

The 2023 general elections is fast approaching. What is your advice to the youth, and what are the qualities voters should look for in the ideal president and other leaders to be voted for?

To the youths, they have to open their minds and think critically of the decisions they are about to make. It is particularly important for the youth because they are going to be here for much longer than the older ones who have gone through many election cycles and have made their own decisions. It was even some of those decisions that brought us to where we are today. The youth have to look back and analyse all that, and decide where and how do they will do things differently. If we keep doing things the same way those before us did them, we will get the same results. No matter how much we complain or cry, we will get the same results of we go down that route. So, we need to think differently and follow through on our decisions.

Do you think Nigeria will ever get to the ‘Promised Land’ and be like other advanced democracies in the world?

The short answer is that it is going to be a roller coaster ride. But, as long as we trust one another and start seeing ourselves as Nigerians, not based on the regions we come from; whether North-West, North East, North Central, South-South, South-East or South West, we will get to that promised land.

Killexams : Have you got what it takes to lead?

Being a leader requires you to highlight positive culture as well as addressing the negative, something often overlooked by critics of policing.

Have you ever wondered if you’ve got what it takes to be an effective leader? Often, promising leaders dismiss their own potential without thoroughly examining what it means to lead and without any objective reflections on their skills. Could this be because the concept of leadership is so mystic, perhaps it can be put down to imposter syndrome or maybe the constant critique of leaders in the public eye makes us doubt our own abilities. Whatever the reason, the policing profession can only stand to benefit from more people confidently recognising and enhancing their ethical leadership qualities.

The next question you might ask is ‘how do I even start to develop my skills?’ A quick search of the internet returns no less than 112 million results which might answer that question. Fundamentally, before moving towards self-development, you must understand that there is far more to being a leader than just being in charge – especially when operating under the complex pressures of the 21st century.

Developing your confidence and skill

Exploring the concept, context and culture involved in your unique position is a key starting point. Pair that with an ability to reflect and learn then you’re on your way to effective leadership.

The 3 C’s


Simply put, there are two important concepts leaders often concentrate on. Transactional leadership, which is more about being a manager and transformational leadership where you create a positive environment for the people you lead to thrive and develop their professional autonomy.

Often, these are seen as comparatively binary. Realistically, you can incorporate your knowledge, skills and experience and adapt elements of both to develop your personal leadership qualities. It’s worth noting that the leadership of policing also requires critical command and control for crisis situations. Taking all of that into account, suddenly you have infinite leadership choices to make.


How you determine the context of your leadership style is down to your own experience and, sometimes, biases. It can be affected by the environment, politics, access to resources and technology, and will often be considered differently by individuals. This is the case even when using decision models or heuristics to try and make sense of the situation.

Ultimately, in leadership, there is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ solution.


The basic idea of culture is often described as ‘how we do things around here’. As you’ll know, always doing things the same way can make a challenging situation even worse. We need to be able to adapt and create environments for innovation and positive impact.

Being a leader requires you to highlight positive culture as well as addressing the negative, something often overlooked by critics of policing. Great leadership learns from the culture it exists in as well as potentially transforming it.

At Staffordshire University’s Institute of Policing, we employ and educate leaders from a range of policing backgrounds. Our approach combines theoretical learning with a tailored review of individual leadership styles, self-reflection and evidence-based approaches.

Whether you think you have leadership potential and are ready to take the next step in your career, or you’re curious to test your abilities and examine critical policing leadership examples with likeminded peers, our Leadership of Policing MSc could be the programme to transform your leadership confidence and capabilities.

We accept future leaders from all areas of policing and criminal justice related roles onto the programme.

  • We value your experience and traditional academic qualifications.
  • You’ll benefit from flexible and accessible delivery methods, designed to help you succeed.
  • You’ll study alongside your peers who understand the professional challenges you face.

Find out more about how we can transform your leadership potential on our Leadership of  Policing page.

Killexams : Why AI is critical to meet rising ESG demands

Were you unable to attend Transform 2022? Check out all of the summit sessions in our on-demand library now! Watch here.

Could artificial intelligence (AI) help companies meet growing expectations for environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting? 

Certainly, over the past couple of years, ESG issues have soared in importance for corporate stakeholders, with increasing demands from investors, employees and customers. According to S&P Global, in 2022 corporate boards and government leaders “will face rising pressure to demonstrate that they are adequately equipped to understand and oversee ESG issues — from climate change to human rights to social unrest.”

ESG investing, in particular, has been a big part of this boom: Bloomberg Intelligence found that ESG assets are on track to exceed $50 trillion by 2025, representing more than a third of the projected $140.5 trillion in total global assets under management. Meanwhile, ESG reporting has become a top priority that goes beyond ticking off regulatory boxes. It’s used as a tool to attract investors and financing, as well as to meet expectations of today’s consumers and employees.  

But according to a latest Oracle ESG global study, 91% of business leaders are currently facing major challenges in making progress on sustainability and ESG initiatives. These include finding the right data to track progress, and time-consuming manual processes to report on ESG metrics.

“A lot of the data that needs to be collected either doesn’t exist yet or needs to come from many systems,” said Sem J. de Spa, senior manager of digital risk solutions at Deloitte. “It’s also way more complex than just your company, because it’s your suppliers, but also the suppliers of your suppliers.” 

ESG data challenges driving use of AI

That is where AI has increasingly become part of the ESG equation. AI can help manage data, glean data insights, operationalize data and report against it, said Christina Shim, VP of strategy and sustainability, AI applications software at IBM. 

“We need to make sure that we’re gathering the mass amounts of data when they’re in completely different silos, that we’re leveraging that data to Improve operations within the business, that we’re reporting that data to a variety of stakeholders and against a very confusing landscape of ESG frameworks,” she said. 

According to Deloitte, although a BlackRock survey found that 92% of S&P companies were reporting ESG metrics by the end of 2020, 53% of global respondents cited “poor quality or availability of ESG data and analytics” and another 33% cited “poor quality of sustainability investment reporting” as the two biggest barriers to adopting sustainable investing. 

Making progress is a must, experts say. Increasingly, these ESG and sustainability commitments are no longer simply nice to have,” said Shim. “It’s really becoming kind of like a basis of what organizations need to be focused on and there are increasingly higher standards that have to be integrated into the operations of all businesses,” she explained. 

“The challenge is huge, especially as new regulations and standards emerge and ESG requirements are under more scrutiny,” said De Spa. This has led to hundreds of technology vendors flooding the market that use AI to help tackle these issues. “We need all of them, at least a lot of them, to solve these challenges,” he said.

The human-AI ESG connection

On top of the operational challenges around ESG, the Oracle study found 96% of business leaders admit human bias and emotion often distract from the end ESG goals. In fact, 93% of business leaders say they would trust a bot over a human to make sustainability and social decisions. 

“We have people who are coming up now who are hardwired for ESG,” Pamela Rucker, CIO advisor, instructor for Harvard Professional Development, who helped put together the Oracle study. “The idea that they would trust a computer isn’t different for them. They already trust a computer to guide them to work, to deliver them directions, to tell them where the best prices are.” 

But, she added, humans can work with technology to create more meaningful change and the survey also found that business leaders believe there is still a place for humans in ESG efforts, including managing making changes (48%), educating others (46%), and making strategic decisions (42%). 

“Having a machine that might be able to sift through some of that data will allow the humans to come in and look at places where they can add some context around places where we might have some ambiguity, or we might have places where there’s an opportunity,” said Rucker. “AI gives you a chance to see more of that data, and you can spend more time trying to come up with the insights.” 

How companies can get started with AI and ESG

Seth Dobrin, chief AI officer at IBM, told VentureBeat that companies should get started now on using AI to harness ESG data. “Don’t wait for additional regulations to come,” he said. 

Getting a handle on data is essential as companies begin their journey towards bringing AI technologies into the mix. “You need a baseline to understand where you are, because you can make all the goals and imperatives, you can commit to whatever you want, but until you know where you are, you’re never gonna figure out how to get to where you need to get to,” he said. 

Dobrin said he also sees organizations moving from a defensive, risk management posture around ESG to a proactive approach that is open to AI and other technologies to help. 

“It’s still somewhat of a compliance exercise, but it’s shifting,” he said. “Companies know they need to get on board and think proactively so that they are considered a thought leader in the space and not just a laggard doing the bare minimum.” 

One of the key areas IBM is focusing on, he added, is helping clients connect their ESG data and the data monitoring with the actual operations of the business. 

“If we’re thinking about business facilities and assets, infrastructure and supply chain as something that’s relevant across industries, all the data that’s being sourced needs to be rolled up and integrated with data and process flows within the ESG reporting and management piece,” he said. “You’re sourcing the data from the business.” 

Deloitte works with Signal AI on ESG efforts

Deloitte recently partnered with Signal AI, which offers AI-powered media intelligence, to help the consulting firm’s clients spot and address provider risks related to ESG issues. 

“With the rise of ESG and as businesses are navigating a more complex environment than ever before, the world has become awash in unstructured data,” said David Benigson, CEO of Signal AI. “Businesses may find themselves constantly on the back foot, responding to these issues reactively rather than having the sort of data and insights at their fingertips to be at the forefront.” 

The emergence of machine learning and AI, he said, can fundamentally address those challenges. “We can transform data into structured insights that help business leaders and organizations better understand their environment and get ahead of those risks, those threats faster, but also spot those opportunities more efficiently too – providing more of an outside-in perspective on issues such as ESG.” 

He pointed to latest backlash around “greenwashing,” including by Elon Musk (who called ESG a “scam” because Tesla was removed from S&P 500’s ESG Index). “There are accusations that organizations are essentially marking their own homework when it comes to sorting their performance and alignment against these sorts of ESG commitments,” he said. “At Signal, we provide the counter to that – we don’t necessarily analyze what the company says they’re going to do, but what the world thinks about what that company is doing and what that company is actually doing in the wild.” 

Deloitte’s de Spa said the firm uses Signal AI for what it calls a “responsible value chain” – basically, provider risk management. 

“For example, a sustainable organization that cleans oceans and rivers from all kinds of waste asked us to help them get more insight into their own value chain,” he said. “They have a small number of often small suppliers they are dependent on and you cannot easily keep track of what they’re doing.” With Signal AI, he explained, Deloitte can follow what is happening with those companies to identify if there are any risks – if they are no longer able to deliver, for example, if there is a scandal that puts them out of business, or if the company is causing issues related to sustainability.” 

In one case, Deloitte discovered a company that was not treating their workers fairly. “You can definitely fight greenwashing because you can see what is going on,” he said. “You can leverage millions of sources to identify what is really happening.” 

ESG will need AI and humans going forward

As sustainability and other ESG-related regulations begin to proliferate around the world, AI and smart technology will continue to play a crucial role, said Deloitte’s de Spa. “It’s not just about carbon, or even having a responsible value chain that has a net zero footprint,” he said. “But it’s also about modern slavery and farmers and other social types of things that companies will need to report on in the next few years.” 

Going forward, a key factor will be how to connect and integrate data together using AI, said IBM’s Dobrin. “Many offer a carbon piece or sell AI just for energy efficiency or supply chain transparency,” he said. “But you need to connect all of it together in a one-stop-shop, that will be a total game-changer in this space.” 

No matter what, said Rucker, there is certainly going to be more for AI-driven tools to measure when it comes to ESG. “One of the reasons I get excited about this is because it’s not just about a carbon footprint anymore, and those massive amounts of data mean you’re going to have to have heavy lifting done by a machine,” she said. “I see an ESG future where the human needs the machine and the machine needs the human. I don’t think that they can exist without each other.”

Driving greater agility in the financial service industry with smarter databases 4By Julian Moffett, CTO BFSI at EDB

Digitalisation and the desire to build data-enabled business models is sweeping through the Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) sector. And, as with other verticals, those organisations that can best optimise and capture data as an asset will benefit from agility, smarter decision making, lower costs and minimised risks. Getting there though, is a major challenge for traditional BFSI institutions as they must overhaul long-established organisational and operational processes, if they are to take advantage of the vast amounts of valuable data lurking within their IT systems.  It is why a growing number of BFSI companies are turning to open source databases, such as PostgreSQL, as they offer far greater flexibility to unleash the power of data, while continuing to offer the robustness required for enterprise-ready databases. Let’s look at the big picture…and it’s pretty stark.

Our oldest financial institutions date back hundreds of years: in the UK Lloyds Bank and Aviva have their roots in the 18th century; Coutts and Barclays go back a further century. Perhaps in part because of this, they suffer from an image problem with a reputation for being risk-averse, late adopters of technology. Most will be weighed down by large legacy IT systems and monolithic applications that slow them down and make change hard. But they persist with them because they feel (with some justification) that they are hard to re-platform and dangerous to migrate.

But their world is being shaken up by new, well-funded fintechs, enjoying the newfound freedoms of open banking. These digital-native players can design processes and technology platforms with a blank sheet of paper. That means they can use the latest tools, build on open-source software, think mobile-first, create compelling customer experiences and generally move very quickly to make new apps and offers.

So, BFSI veterans face a tricky Catch-22 conundrum: how to be nimble without demolishing the underpinnings of processes that have served them for years or even decades. One obvious way for them to move faster is widespread adoption of cloud technology to access the latest software, gain elastic compute capacity, support mobile devices, shrink hardware cost bases and reduce their IT administration overheads. Cloud is also widely seen as an offramp for those afore-mentioned older applications by refactoring to embrace the new in the form of microservices and to shave off risks such as software being no longer supported. This is far from easy but many take a middle road which sees them deconstruct applications, placing more services in modern environments in an extended iterative process.

But moving to the cloud is an architectural change that has major implications for related infrastructure and dependencies. And a key aspect here is the chance to re-evaluate the choice of software that is at the heart of all attempts to digitise, automate and analyse – the database.

Most BFSI firms will have deep sunk investments in Oracle, Microsoft or IBM relational database management systems (RDBMS) and would like to relax that dependency in order to avoid vendor lock-in, reduce costs and gain access to databases designed for the modern world of private and public cloud, Big Data analytics and flexible tooling ecosystems. There are other advantages to re-examining database choice too and many will enjoy the flexibility, ease of deployment, low-admin footprint and cost effectiveness of database as a service. This is where working with the right expert partner can prove beneficial to deliver BFSI companies the confidence that the chosen database is truly enterprise-ready.

This is what we are seeing with the rise of open source, in particular PostgreSQL databases. Many customers will trial and run their new databases alongside core databases so risk is minimised, but increasingly we are seeing PostgreSQL emerge as the defacto standard for RDBMS requirements, as working with the right partner ensures customers have access to the expertise and reassurances necessary to certain open source databases can run mission-critical applications.

The veteran’s ace card

Fintechs can move nimbly, fail fast and bring a spirit of adventure and innovation to their work but they lack one thing that the veterans have in spades: data. Big BFSI firms can look back and across a huge number of interactions to predict customer behavior, identify preferences, perform targeted marketing campaigns, provide tailored portfolio advice and anticipate needs. They can bathe in vast data lakes with myriad data sources and apply data science, AI and Machine Learning atop these. Again, here modern databases with relational stores such as Postgres are an excellent fit.

In summary, adopting modern databases and embracing open source offerings such as PostgreSQL supported by the right partners will not only deliver an enterprise-class service. It will deliver a giant leap forward in flexibility and have very significant knock-on effects in driving a culture of innovation and a sense of freedom to try things. If BSFI veterans can unleash the potential of the data within their organisations, they can capitalise on a significant advantage over their younger, upstart rivals: now they need to find the right data store.

Killexams : Latest Gartner personalisation engine report highlights strengths and weaknesses of platform approaches

Dynamic Yield has once again led Gartner’s annual Magic Quadrant 2022 report analysing personalisation engine platforms in market, followed by Insider, Salesforce, Adobe and SAP.

The latest Gartner report detailed 13 vendor offerings in the personalisation engine space, rating each on three key use cases: Marketing management, and capabilities to deliver the right message to the right audience in the right context; digital commerce, and the ability to tailor content, offers, recommendations and experiences across digital sales channels; and personalising service and support through customer insight, journeys and user feedback.

Core capabilities the analyst firm assessed platforms on included in-session user behaviour tracking, data collection and ingestion, and triggering interactions in real time based on an individual’s actions, context or data or a combination of all three. Also critical to be considered in this category was predictive analytics capabilities supporting content and product recommendations, flexible user segmentation, extensive testing tools and personalisation performance tracking and reporting.

In addition, each vendor had to have at least US$20 million in annual platform revenue and a minimum of 25 net new customers for their personalisation engine in 2021.

In the top right ‘leaders’ quadrant of vendors offering both a strong vision for their platform as well as an ability to execute was Dynamic Yield. Gartner noted the platform’s strengths, such as extensive pre-built testing templates, no-code visual editor, predictive targeting feature and its ‘AdaptML’ feature offering next-best action suggestions. Other pros included stronger integrations for omnichannel personalisation as well as standalone email personalisation.
