“UiPath provides an efficient, cost-effective RPA solution for a quicker return on investment, along with extensive support, a user community and a free online academy.

Blue Turtle partners with ThreatMetrix to deliver mobile, Web transaction intelligence

[Johannesburg, 12 March 2019]

Blue Turtle Technologies, South Africa’s leading enterprise technology management company, has entered into an alliance with ThreatMetrix, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions company, as reseller of its leading fraud prevention solutions. Through the agreement, the company will now be able to deliver effortless authentication through digital user identification to customers in the Africa region.

Blue Turtle will integrate the ThreatMetrix software into its fintech solutions portfolio, where it aims to assist clients in unlocking the power of fraud prevention. With ThreatMetrix ID, an advanced digital identity technology, customers can better button down their security no matter the industry.

“Mobile app and Web-based user interactions continue to increase across devices and industries. This opens the way for increasing fraudulent activity, which forces companies to look at added security to minimise their losses, plus maintain and grow their customer base without additional inconvenience and risk to customers,” says Justin Arnoldi, Head of Digital Transformation at Blue Turtle Technologies.

ThreatMetrix ID uses global shared intelligence from over 185 countries to establish a unique alphanumeric ID for each user on its Digital Identity Network, whether through mobile or Web. Its advanced authentication solution uses machine learning and big data to detect, in real-time, when behaviour deviates from trusted and established connections, and when additional steps are required for customer authentication.

“Being able to identify and track the behaviour of a client not only adds layers of security, but can dramatically increase sales conversion rates and ensure that fraud, security and payment operations run more efficiently,” adds Arnoldi.

ThreatMetrix can deliver universal fraud and authentication decisioning across key use cases, such as new customer onboarding, authentication for returning users and fraud prevention for digital payments.

ThreatMetrix provides an end-to-end platform for digital identity intelligence and trust decisioning, and as part of its parent company, LexisNexis Risk Solutions provides a comprehensive view of users, which spans online and offline identity attributes. It is able to detect high-risk transactions and dynamically score them, enabling digital businesses to safely grow online revenue and personalise the digital experience for trusted customers.

“ThreatMetrix is delighted to be working with the Digital Transformation team at Blue Turtle, where we will ensure that digital transactions across Africa continue to accelerate, and customers are safe in the knowledge that we are keeping the fraudsters at bay,” said Marc Lee, Vice-President Sales, Europe, Middle East and Africa from ThreatMetrix. “As digital and mobile commerce in the region continues to grow, businesses need to invest in technologies that enable them to assess each and every transaction in real-time, in the context of the true digital identity of the user, based on historical data seen across multiple Web sites and apps.”

Digital transformation has become a critical element of a successful e-commerce business. Blue Turtle’s mission is to help clients integrate meaningful solutions to help them engage, transact, gain insight and, more accurately, predict customer behaviour. Blue Turtle can facilitate the implementation of ThreatMetrix.

Developers can embed workflows automatically with Control-M Automation API from Blue Turtle

[Johannesburg, 12 March 2019]

Blue Turtle Technologies is assisting developers to better manage and track testing environments with Control-M Automation API, an extension of the Control-M suite that enables developers to embed workflows automatically during development. The benefit of this is diagnosing and addressing errors sooner, while at the same time improving the reliability of applications.

As only one of nine global BMC platinum partners, Blue Turtle currently boasts the largest Control-M resource pool in Africa and services more than 27 customers in the region. The company has been recognised as the Control-M partner of the year in SEMEA for the last three years consecutively.

“The speed at which developers need to deliver on and roll out applications that support digital transformation, often leads to errors and bugs in code as there is little time between testing and deployment,” states Simon Shaw at Blue Turtle Technologies. “Speed is not the only issue here, and these errors can in part be attributed to inconsistencies between production and testing workflows. This is where Control-M Automation API steps in and enables developers and Devops teams to embed Job-As-Code approach right from the get-go.

“Leveraging industry best standards, this Agile approach to development makes use of JSON notations for job definitions and GIT and RESTful APIs for the validation, configuration and deployment purposes.”

With Control-M Automation API developers can now build automation into their process and speed up the steps to production, this then affords them visibility into what their production workflows look like before they are up and running. The tool also enables seamless integration and alignment to existing business processes and aligns developers to operations – to ensure that all work being done is executed on a consistent platform.

There is no actual scripting required to deploy the Job-As-Code approach as this is already embedded in Control-M Automation API, however additional APIs and CLIs are provided to assist in the workflow coding, building, testing, running, packaging, deploying, provisioning, configuration and management.

The offering also includes Control-M Workbench, a free to download standalone development environment that provides the user the ability to test their job flows without requiring additional services. Workbench is also Control-M ready to use in a sandbox mode as a virtual appliance and runs on all major OS environments. It has a Web GUI for simple debugging and testing of workflows, and supports run and tracking of jobs, syntax validation, managing Control-M environments and packaging of job and configuration objects.

“Control-M Automation API is the perfect accompaniment to a developer’s toolbox as it makes the entire process of development to delivery seamless and error free. At Blue Turtle we have been invited by vendor partner BMC to attend an exclusive internal Control-M training and enhancement programme. We believe this will provide us with unprecedented access to technical and development experts, the learning transfer of which will be of direct benefit to our Control-M customers,” ends Shaw.

Pre- and post-sales support, technical assistance, project scoping and sales of Control-M Automation API is available immediately through Blue Turtle Technologies.
