Energy & Utilities UK, London - 16 August 2010

Does the government have the political will to change direction on UK energy policy? asks Arthur D. Little

The UK government’s first annual energy statement recently acknowledged the ongoing need to realign UK energy policy in order to implement an environmentally responsible, secure and cost-efficient energy infrastructure.  Global management consultancy Arthur D. Little believes that the inconsistent policies so far pursued seem destined to deliver a high cost, low quality infrastructure – and asks whether the current government is willing to turn this situation around.

Central to the government’s target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 34 per cent below their 1990 levels by 2020 are the increase in the proportion of electricity generated from renewable sources, and energy efficiency measures. In Realigning UK energy policy, Arthur D. Little analyses how realistic and cost-effective some of the measures outlined for reaching this target really are: [...]

Arthur D. Little: M-payments in M-BRIC to reach approximately USD 60bn by 2015

The time is right for service providers to enter M-BRIC m-payment markets, according to a recent study by global management consultancy Arthur D. Little. While only 32 million people in M-BRIC currently use mobile financial services, Arthur D. Little projects that this number will increase to 290 million users by 2015.

According to "M-Payments in M-BRIC", mobile financial services are currently experiencing a global surge. While every second person owns a mobile device in M-BRIC countries, 70 per cent of their population is currently excluded from the banking sector.  As such, there is great potential for new entrants to actively shape the local m-payment market. [...]

Arthur D. Little: Putting IT governance at the top of the agenda

Now is the time for corporations to make fundamental changes to the way they organise business IT, with 40 per cent of CEOs and CIOs pointing towards an overhaul in IT governance. This is the key finding of a study of 63 large corporations by global management consultancy Arthur D. Little. The consultancy has developed an approach to provide companies with the means for optimising IT governance.

Over recent years, corporate governance has become mandatory. As a subset of corporate governance, IT governance has made its way up the corporate agenda.
