I want to thank our team for their hard work and commitment, and our clients and partners for the trust they put in us.

A Look Back

When the company began in 2012, Modelit consisted of only three team members. Since then, it has blossomed into the successful company that it is today. Over the years, Modelit has achieved such accomplishments as becoming a Salesforce Ridge Partner, becoming a PDO Partner, completing over 100 successful projects, and obtaining numerous certifications and specializations for its team members. Modelit is proud to have two Salesforce MVPs as part of its team, a privilege for a company of our scale, of which one even had the opportunity to speak publicly at the annual Dreamforce event. Now, with a team of more than 40 professionals, Modelit continues to thrive as a trusted Salesforce partner.

Company Values

Modelit's purpose has always been to empower organizations and individuals with Salesforce and technology, so that they can grow and thrive.

Building trust with clients, remaining committed to project outcomes, and maintaining strong communication throughout are crucial to the reliability that Modelit has provided for its clients over the last 10 years.

"Putting people first played a very important role in achieving this success and creating an atmosphere of respect and trust. When there are people who are passionate about what they do, working in a good environment where sharing their knowledge is encouraged and motivated, working as a team towards the same goal is the key to constantly learning, improving and delivering quality products to customers. I would not trade my role at Modelit for anything."  -Pablo Vigil, Team Lead, Sr. Software Developer

Forging Ahead

Modelit looks forward to continuing its journey, focused on becoming a top Summit Partner. The company will continue to strive for a cohesive team of Salesforce-certified members, hoping to be recognized as the top Salesforce consulting and development company in the Americas. The future looks bright for Modelit.

Killexams : AdvoLogix powers integration between iManage and Salesforce Sales Cloud

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --  AdvoLogix®, a leading provider of cloud-based enterprise legal management solutions for Law Firms, Legal Departments, and Government Agencies, today announced the availability of a new integration between iManage and the Salesforce platform, which allows users at law firms, corporate legal departments and public sector organizations, to access their iManage workspaces, folders, documents and emails – right from within their Salesforce platform – eliminating the friction of switching between two different environments.

"The iManage – to Salesforce integration, powered by AdvoLogix, supports our goal of meeting users where they work and transforming how they get work done," said Clint Crosier, General Counsel at iManage. "The ability to manage and browse iManage content from the context of a Salesforce record is a gamechanger for professionals who spend large portions of their day within Salesforce, but need quick, secure access to content in iManage, such as contracts, legal agreements, and other key work products."

Through its research and development division, AdvoLogix, a technology partner of iManage, developed this integration with Salesforce Sales Cloud for global availability. Fully compliant with all Salesforce security and compliance requirements, the app is available for purchase on the Salesforce AppExchange, as well as directly from iManage.

"iManage is a leading knowledge work platform and AdvoLogix is a leading cloud-based enterprise legal management platform for legal entities," said Dan Bellopede, Chief Revenue Officer at AdvoLogix. "It only made sense to create a way for the benefits of one to extend to the other, which is what the iManage – Salesforce integration has achieved. It's an example of strength building on strength." The integration can be added to any record within Salesforce and then mapped to an iManage workspace. Previously, users had to exit their Salesforce workflow to manage documents. Now, they can upload, download, or view documents through the integrated solution.

"iManage is a valuable addition to AppExchange, putting valuable documents at professionals' fingertips, helping to transform how business development, marketing, and other departments within law firms and organizations interact with lawyers and legal teams on the critical documents they manage," said Woodson Martin, GM of Salesforce AppExchange.

Killexams : The password paradigm at Identiverse 2022

We know there are problems with passwords. It seems no matter what we do to make them more secure – criminals are one step ahead of us. From shifting advice on creating a good password (make it one you can remember, use an algorithm, make it a passphrase, don’t use 12345!) to using a password manager. Passwords are an attractive attack target. From the Morris Worm to today’s database breaches that feed the dark web commerce – passwords are seen as a problem to be solved. But there are two main theories on how to solve that problem – Improve passwords or do away with them all together.

One of the main themes at Identiverse and in the IAM community right now has to do with the password paradigm. Can passwords be improved or should we embrace a new passwordless paradigm with biometrics? Spoiler: I think we can both Improve passwords and explore a passwordless paradigm. Here’s the roundup of these sessions at Identiverse 2022.

Going passwordless

Microsoft and FIDO made a big splash at Identiverse promoting FIDO’s passwordless solution and newly released passkeys.

Andrew Shikiar the executive director at FIDO Alliance held ‘The State of Passwordless Authentication’ describing the paradigm shift from knowledge-based credentials (what’s in your head) to possession based credentials (what’s in your hand). FIDO’s goal is to reduce the possibility of credential based attacks.

Jackie Comp and Rolf Lindemann, both from Nok Nok Labs, gave real world examples during their session ‘Where to Start Your Passwordless Customer Journey? Five Real Deployment Use Cases and Best Practices.’ Tim Cappalli and Scott Bingham from Microsoft presented ‘Hey FIDO, Meet Passkey!’ Passkeys are designed to help scale FIDO adoption in the consumer space.

Tom Sheffield, senior director, Cybersecurity at Target shared real world experience implementing FIDO in his ‘Insights from Target’s Enterprise Journey to Adopt FIDO.’

Improving the password

While we dream of a new passwordless world, passwords aren’t going away anytime soon. Multi Factor authentication is useful, but can be a challenge to execute to a broad customer base.

Ian Glazer, SVP Identity at Salesforce, shared his ‘Lessons on the Road to Complete Customer MFA Adoption’ on the challenges of launching MFA to Salesforce customers. It’s an inspiring story sharing the challenges and successes of the Salesforce journey.

Mike Schwartz from Gluu made a compelling case for the password in his ‘Bring Back the Password — But Do it Right This Time.’ Schwartz points out that passwords are not going away anytime soon, and there are ways we can Improve them using MFA. He says that fixing passwords is about fixing the UI of authentication to make it easy for users to continuously authenticate. His solution utilizes keyboard dynamics as a behavioral biometric.

Conclusion

To solve the password problem, we need to Improve current solutions and build better ones simultaneously — and in order to give customers the most secure experience, both sides need to collaborate and learn from each other. If you missed Identiverse, these sessions will be available on demand in the coming months.

Killexams : Woman-led AI firm partners with Schwab to bring to automation, learning tools to affiliated RIAs

As the wealth management industry continues to embrace artificial intelligence solutions with open arms, a female-founded AI fintech and one of the biggest names in the business are joining forces.

CogniCor, the California-based provider of an AI-powered business automation and learning platform, has entered an agreement with Charles Schwab to have information about its suite of solutions shared with Schwab-affiliated RIAs via the Schwab Provider Listings program.

The first customer benefitting from the new collab is Sequoia Financial Group, an RIA in Akron, Ohio, with more than $10 billion in assets. It’s one of Schwab’s largest affiliates.

CogniCor co-founder and CEO Sindhu Joseph believes AI-enabled digital assistants can be leveraged to alleviate many of the issues associated with significant M&A growth within the industry. 

As M&A growth remains high, there is a greater need for scalable solutions that facilitate the efficient onboarding and education of new advisors, new account openings and helping clients transition existing accounts to an advisor's new firm.

Joseph said her firm’s listing by Schwab aims to answer the calls for these solutions from the nation's leading RIAs.

"Currently, advisors and employees are forced to spend around 40% of their time executing routine, manual tasks,” Joseph said. “This time should be devoted to serving clients and performing other value-generative activities. Using our business automation and learning platforms, RIAs can fuel further growth opportunities for their business and customers." 

Sequoia is also helping CogniCor test “Meeting Assistant,” the firm's latest AI-enabled solution, on a large scale. The system works with advisors and the firm's current Salesforce-based CRM to automate pre- and post-meeting paperwork, create dynamic agendas and help track life events and milestones for customers in real time. 

"As we looked to Improve our advisors' efficiency without any impact to the client experience, we identified the administrative processes around the client-advisor meeting as an area ripe for improvement," said Trevor Chuna, chief technology officer with Sequoia. "Working closely with CogniCor, we selected several areas in which we believe this technology can reduce the time spent on repetitive administrative activities. We are extremely pleased to roll these seamlessly integrated tools to our advisors in the coming months." 

Joseph added that she is excited for the opportunity to provide Sequoia advisors AI-backed tools to help them “focus on what matters most — the relationships with clients."

The announcement comes as more support of AI rolls in from across the industry. A survey of 200 financial services professionals conducted in May and shared this week by Broadridge Financial Solutions found artificial intelligence to be among the top investment priorities for financial services firms.

Nearly a quarter (23%) of respondents in the Broadridge survey identified AI and automation as their firm’s priority investment. Only data management tools polled higher with 27% of respondents ranking it the highest.

"In today's rapidly evolving world, an optimized workflow is crucial and good, clean data is key," Vijay Mayadas, president of capital markets at Broadridge, said in a statement. "And yet, firms are drowning in the complexity of managing and simplifying data without the technology and digital infrastructures in place to support its management, stifling transparency, agility and growth."

The research also found that finance pros are eager to get started. More than half of the respondents said their firms still have progress to make before they reach the advanced stages of their innovation and technology efforts.

Agreements like the one between CogniCor and Schwab may be able to help.

"We hear from clients and the survey findings highlight how firms are overwhelmed with the amount of data and limited in how to use it," said Mayadas. "By assessing one’s tech stack and partnering with trusted providers, firms have the opportunity to maximize the capability of their data and Improve their workflow management."

Consulting firm Accenture also recently offered up research that bodes well for the future of AI in wealth management. Its “AI in Wealth Management” survey polled 500 financial advisors in the United States and Canada earlier this year to “fairly assess their familiarity of AI and what, if any, disconnects exist when it comes to using this technology.”

The response was enthusiastic as almost all of the surveyed advisors want AI solutions and are already using AI to some extent.

About 83% of advisors interviewed said they believe AI will have a direct, measurable and consistent impact on the client-advisor relationship in the next 18 months. That same percentage of advisors also said they believe AI can achieve a level of sophisticated advice and planning that will ultimately leave them competing with an algorithm for clients in the next 18 months.

But there are hurdles. Five out of 10 advisors in the Accenture survey feel like their firms are held back from acting on their AI vision because of outdated firm culture.

Information in a previous version of this story was incorrect. CogniCor has entered an agreement to be listed on the Schwab Advisor Services Provider Listings website, which Schwab offers to RIAs to help them research and select third-party technology solutions. The firm has not entered a formal partnership to provide solutions via the Managed Account Marketplace. The incorrect information in a previous version of this story was due to an erroneous news release.

Killexams : UK Government signs procurement memo of understanding with Salesforce, but are more needed to prevent a cloud oligopoly?

The UK Government’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS) procurement body has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Salesforce to make it easier and cheaper for public sector organizations to buy from the supplier.

According to Philip Orumwense, Commercial Director and Chief Technology Procurement Officer at CCS:

The agreement will further ensure increased collaboration and aggregation of government and wider public sector spend to achieve increased automation, forecasting, reporting and customer engagement management tools.

The main items on the Salesforce MoU are:

  • A discount on licences (Salesforce, Mulesoft, Tableau & Slack) and services for eligible UK public sector bodies, including health bodies.
  • Free experimentation projects, so that eligible bodies can test and learn how Salesforce solutions can be used to meet their requirements.
  • Direct access to a panel of Salesforce’s SME implementation partners.
  • Discounted training and support.
  • A discounted trial of Salesforce’s Net Zero Cloud, supporting the UK government’s drive towards Net Zero.

Salesforce has a number of UK public sector customers, including the Health Service Executive, Department for Works & Pensions, various local authorities and CCS itself.

More MoUs

CCS has signed a number of such MoUs in accurate years with cloud suppliers, including the likes of Oracle, Google and Microsoft. Oracle’s agreement was first signed as far back as 2012 with an updated  and expanded deal signed last year. At that time, Orumwense commented:

This enhanced Memorandum of Understanding will continue to deliver savings and benefits for new and existing public sector customers using Oracle's cloud based technologies. It will continue delivering value for money whilst supporting public sector customers' journey to the cloud.

Expanding the list of suppliers offering cloud services has become a political agenda item in the UK as legislators have queried the amount of business that has gone to Amazon Web Services (AWS). As of February last year, some £75 million of contracts had been awarded in the previous 12 months.

Lord Maude, who previously ran the UK Cabinet Office where he waged a war on excessively priced tech contracts and essentially began the MoU process in earnest as part of his reforms, was quoted as warning:

When it comes to hosting, we've regressed into allowing a small group, and one vendor, in particular, to dominate. If you take a view of the government as simply as a customer, it makes absolutely no sense for the government to be overly dependent on one supplier. No one would sensibly do that.

The Salesforce MoU looks well-timed as CCS recently launched a tender for a range of cloud services in a set of deals that could be worth up to £5 billion in total. Procurement notices have been issued under the G-Cloud 13 framework, covering cloud hosting, cloud software and cloud support, with a further lot for migration and set-up services to follow. Contracts can last for 3 years with an option to extend by a further year.

Eligible suppliers must be able to offer services in the following capabilities:

  • Planning - the provision of planning services to enable customers to move to cloud software and/or hosting services;
  • Setup and Migration- the provision of setup and migration services which involves the process of consolidating and transferring a collection of workloads. Workloads can include emails, files, calendars, document types, related metadata, instant messages, applications, user permissions, compound structure and linked components.
  • Security services - Maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of services and information, and protect services against threats.
  • Quality assurance and performance testing - Continuously ensure that a service does what it’s supposed to do to meet user needs efficiently and reliably.
  • Training
  • Ongoing support - Support user needs by providing help before, during and after service delivery.

My take

Having a wider range of potential providers operating under such MoUs is crucial for government to deliver value for taxpayers money.

Those of us who lived through the crusading days of Maude insisting that tech vendors - mostly large US systems houses and consultancies - come back to the negotiating table, tear up their existing contracts and start from scratch, have been dismayed, but not surprised, that the so-called ‘oligopoly’ simply had to sit it out and wait for a change of government/minister to get things back to ‘normal’.

There were successes that linger. The UK’s G-Cloud framework was a triumph when set up and continues to do good work. As an aside, and given this article has been triggered by a Salesforce announcement, I do remember talking to CEO Marc Benioff in London prior to the formal announcement of G-Cloud and how it would work.   

At the time there was a heavy push from certain quarters to make G-Cloud all about virtualization and private cloud rather than the public cloud push it was to become. I asked Benioff if he thought this was the right direction of travel and got a very firm rebuttal as he told me:

The UK government is way behind in this, and way too much into virtualization…Government needs to stop hiding behind the private cloud.

I was in good company - Benioff had been in at the Cabinet Office the previous day and given Maude the same message.  Thirteen years on, the Public Cloud First policy that was shaped later that year still stands, but progress hasn’t been made at the rate that was promised back in those heady launch days and which needs to be achieved.

In 2022, there’s the risk of a different sort of oligopoly, as the concern around AWS' grip on government contracts suggests - and not just in the UK -  but unfortunately there’s no sign of a Maude to take charge this time and bang the negotiating table.

Instead the Secretary of State with responsibility for digital thinks the internet has been around for ten years and retweets memes of politicians being stabbed. Meanwhile a putative, unelected new Prime Minster has just announced that she (somehow) intends to redesign the internet into adults-only and kid-friendly versions. Sigh.

Killexams : Looking For Talent? Find Out How To Hire Disabled Workers

Most disabled job seekers never get an interview with a potential employer, and the reasons are as complicated as they are disappointing. But one thing is clear. The number of people living in this world with either a visible or invisible disability—and no job or low wages— is double that of their non-disabled counterparts. That’s unacceptable.

It doesn't have to be this way, thanks to a new breed of job recruitment platforms that help disabled people and inclusive companies search for the perfect talent match. If you are familiar with platforms like Indeed or ZipRecruiter, you’ll immediately see how these disability-focused websites and databases level the playing field and showcase disabled talent with the respect and reach they deserve.

There isn’t one kind of site—each has its own take on job promotion, fees for services and who qualifies to use them. But all of them are used by top businesses in sectors including hospitality, (Delta, Hilton), healthcare (American Red Cross, UnitedHealthcare Group), finance (Charles Schwab, Mass Mutual), tech (Salesforce, What’sApp) and more. Some sites on this list act as databases that allow you to discreetly disclose the accommodations you might need at work, others are skill-building sites that give people free training and then promote their profile to suitable future employers. They work with employers as passionately as they work with job seekers. The goal is jobs, jobs, jobs.

As often as possible, I tried to include those that are both run by and for people with disabilities. I have tested many of these, at least the ones that cater to neurodivergent job seekers, because I am ADHD and have a handful of learning disabilities.

It’s Disability Pride Month, and while some people have taken to social media demanding more respect or promoting disability flags, I am most interested in offering resources that combat the dismal statistics:

Labor force participation for people with disabilities is 38% compared to 78% of people without a disability, according to a accurate National Trends in Disability Employment Report (nTIDE). You’ll see that in accurate months people with disabilities again made gains—yes, numbers are up. It’s something, but it's also nothing to swoon over.

It’s true that employment has reached an all-time high for people with disabilities, but the numbers are complex, not only because there are slight ups and downs, but because the numbers don’t take into account where people have had their hours cut or where other seasonal or pandemic-related economic factors, according to Andrew J. Houtenville, Ph.D. director at the Institute on Disability at University of New Hampshire, which partners bi-monthly to create the report with Kessler Foundation.

· As of June 2022, we are barely 4% of the total workforce. Disability experts I have spoken with are far from convinced that recruiting, hiring and support in general for people with disabilities are at acceptable levels.

· Reduction in hours, a rise in layoffs and difficulty getting hired elsewhere are all possible in the coming months.

· One third of the population with disabilities lives in poverty so many stayed in the workforce during the pandemic and the great resignation is not happening among the people with disabilities.

· 80% of neurodivergent Americans of working age are either under or unemployed

Use this short starter list of well-established platforms for recruiting, hiring, and supporting people with invisible disabilities. This is primarily for hiring talent who are ADHDers, dyslexic, autistic and people diagnosed with chronic conditions (such as Long Covid, migraines, autoimmune disorders, cancer, MS and more). These platforms offer meaningful work, job growth and competitive salaries. They are destinations for employers to directly source disabled talent and for people seeking jobs to showcase their skills, learn new ones and find community.

Consulting firms are not on this list because, although they laudably work on inclusion initiatives, they are not part of this new group of platforms focused on hiring individuals. Please share this list widely with a friend or family member who is searching for a job or job skills, share it with your HR department and recruiters and use it as a subject to start a discussion about sourcing at the board level on down to managers.
