This acquisition extends Synechron’s reach across the country, establishing a presence in key hubs and unlocking new industries and clients.
SYDNEY and NEW YORK and LONDON and PUNE, India, June 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Synechron, a global leader in digital transformation consulting for the financial and technology sectors, is proud to announce that it has executed a definitive agreement for the acquisition of Chamonix IT Management Consulting Pty Ltd and Exposé Data Pty Ltd. Both companies are headquartered in Adelaide, Australia, with additional operations in Melbourne and Brisbane and share a common goal of delivering digital transformation, artificial intelligence, and analytics expertise to clients across several key industries including government, healthcare, utilities, energy, and education. The definitive agreement with respect to the acquisition was signed on Tuesday, 25 June, 2024, and is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB).

Chamonix IT, established in 2010, is the leading provider of digital transformation services to organizations in South Australia. With a skilled team of approximately 150 professionals, Chamonix IT has been pivotal in delivering cutting-edge solutions that address complex challenges and drive significant outcomes for enterprise-level and public sector clients.

The two organizations will join Synechron’s core digital transformation consulting business alongside recently acquired iGreenData, which expanded Synechron’s data and blockchain expertise in the financial services sector. With these additions, Synechron has effectively doubled its presence in the country, achieving coverage across major sectors. This strategic positioning allows the company to capitalize on the growing information technology (IT) investment in Australia encompassing SaaS, IT services, and analytics, while simultaneously enhancing its ability to offer support and solutions across Asia, the Americas, and Europe.
Faisal Husain, Synechron Co-founder and CEO, commented, “We look forward to welcoming Chamonix IT and Exposé into the Synechron family when the acquisition is completed. They will enrich our presence in Australia, bringing fresh expertise and capabilities that complement our ongoing commitment in the region.

Zesty Introduces Cloud Insights and Automation Platform To Ensure Optimization and Cloud Operational Excellence

Published

on

zesty-introduces-cloud-insights-and-automation-platform-to-ensure-optimization-and-cloud-operational-excellence

With prescriptive insights and AI automation for cloud infrastructure management for multiple CSPs, Zesty’s platform makes it simple to optimize cloud spending and performance, improve utilization rates, and create new opportunities for FinOps and DevOps teams
SAN MATEO, Calif., July 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Zesty, a leader in automated cloud infrastructure management, announced today the launch of its Insights and Automation Platform. Designed to support a multi-cloud strategy and transform cloud challenges into opportunities for FinOps and DevOps teams, the platform optimizes cloud spending and improves utilization rates with prescriptive insights and automation, empowering companies to focus on innovation, not cloud or budget management.

As global innovation drives continuous exponential cloud growth, more than half of CIOs have reported an increase in their IT budget for this year specifically to enhance their capacity for financing new projects. Overseeing multiple vendors, intricate cost structures, and ever-evolving company needs have created enormous complications for companies as they scale and budget. While R&D teams prioritize leveraging cloud services to drive innovation and competitive advantage, Finance teams focus on controlling costs and ensuring budget adherence.
Zesty’s platform incorporates new insights to drastically simplify SMB and enterprise cloud cost management by prioritizing the highest value recommendations for FinOps teams. For example, the recommendations focused on reducing unused resources alone can help companies cut costs by 7%, which in some cases represents millions of dollars annually. The platform also hosts Zesty’s AI-driven flagship solutions, Commitment Manager and Zesty Disk, which automatically scale cloud resources up and down and identify potential savings across services. Zesty’s integration of insights and automation ensures that cloud investments consistently align with evolving business objectives with even greater efficiency and savings.
“CIOs are constantly exploring avenues to finance new projects. The Zesty Insights and Automation Platform will play a pivotal role in identifying areas of waste and help to free those funds for innovative projects. Machine learning capabilities and predictive analytics are driving serious returns for FinOps teams, with some of our customers recovering over a million dollars a year from cloud waste and using that to amplify innovation,” said Maxim Melamedov, CEO and Co-Founder of Zesty. “Our mission is to help businesses easily eliminate cloud-related waste in all its forms, financial, cloud resources, environmental, and time. Our platform comes at a critical time given the industry’s urgent need for effective financial management of cloud operations. Companies across all industries are desperate for a guide on their FinOps journey, and we are excited to be able to help.”
Zesty sets a new standard for the fragmented FinOps industry, providing a unified and efficient approach to cloud management, transforming visibility into action with prescriptive insights and automation, optimizing services such as AWS’ EC2, EBS, RDS, S3, ELB, EIP, and Azure’s Virtual Machines. Fueling its commitment to enhancing cloud infrastructure efficiency, Zesty manages billions in AWS contracts. Zesty’s customer-centric approach earned the company a near-perfect (4.9/5) CSAT (Customer Satisfaction Score) in 2023.

Zenoo calls for collaboration to tackle AI fraud in banking

Published

zenoo-calls-for-collaboration-to-tackle-ai-fraud-in-banking

CAMBRIDGE, England, July 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — UK technology company Zenoo warns the use of AI in banking fraud is just getting started – and collaboration with AI specialists is required to stem its flow.

Cambridge-based Zenoo – whose clients include London Stock Exchange, Experian, Transunion and NASA – supplies digital onboarding and protection from financial crime for businesses and has issued a warning to the banking community that the malevolent use of AI will only become more sophisticated and prevalent in the future.
Zenoo UK managing director George Taylor said: “It’s an enormous concern how quickly and significantly AI is being innovated to assist in banking fraud. In particular, social engineering attacks to steal personal information, enable identity theft and unauthorised access to bank accounts, is becoming remarkably advanced.”
Key areas of concern include Psychographic Profiling – where AI will analyse extensive data to create detailed psychographic profiles of individuals, tailoring social engineering attacks to exploit specific psychological traits – and Manipulative Interactions where the rising use of chatbots and virtual assistants in banking will be taken advantage of to engage in prolonged, convincing interactions with targets to extract sensitive information or induce them to perform actions that compromise their security.
Taylor is calling for banking to respond to the AI threat with AI too by collaborating with AI defence systems that can learn and adapt in real-time to detect and respond to emerging threats and machine learning models to identify and predict potential fraud based on evolving patterns and behaviours.
He adds: “The key word in combatting the AI threat is ‘collaboration’. Here at Zenoo we partner with cutting edge providers of the latest AI deepfake detection solutions which can be easily integrated into existing or new customer on boarding flows to combat fraud. We must take advantage of those specialists who are analysing and responding to the AI threat on a daily basis”.
