Cartesian Reaffirms Commitment to RAG as Foundation Sponsors

Cartesian, a provider of consulting services and managed solutions to the telecoms, media, and technology sector, has signed on as a Foundation Sponsor for the Risk & Assurance Group (RAG). The firm provides consulting and analytics services that target revenue assurance, risk, security, and fraud, which are areas of growing complexity within the telecoms sector.

Cartesian founded RAG at its London office in 2004 with the aim of creating an independent, open and collaborative forum for professionals working in risk, assurance, fraud, and technology. As an indicator of the increased interest in this area within the telecoms sector, attendance at RAG’s London events has grown five-fold over the last two years.

“Cartesian is proud to sponsor and continue supporting the growth of the Risk & Assurance Group,” stated Dermod Ranaghan, Managing Director (EMEA) at Cartesian. Dermod went on to say:

We have been fortunate to be able to contribute to the group’s continued success as it has gone from strength to strength, increasing its membership, growing its events, and expanding its coverage. TMT businesses face a growing set of complex challenges in revenue, risk, and assurance, as their products and services evolve technologically and commercially. Today there is an even greater need for RAG, as an independent association, to inform and educate, and to create a community for professionals to share ideas. Our sponsorship reflects our commitment to maintaining the active part we have played in this community since its inception.

Hayley Daniels saluted the new sponsorship agreement with Cartesian on behalf of the RAG Committee:

The Risk & Assurance Group Committee are proud to welcome Cartesian as one of our five annual Foundation Sponsors for 2017. Cartesian gives RAG the benefit of their deep experience with industry-leading technology and analytics. However, what makes this Foundation Sponsor so special to us is the fact Cartesian has always been loyal to RAG. Cartesian were the original founders of this group back in 2004. This announcement is a tribute to Cartesian’s willingness to assist the education of telecoms professionals, irrespective of whether they work for existing Cartesian customers. We applaud Cartesian’s dedication, the work they have done for our community and the work they will continue to do in concert with RAG.

In addition to being a Foundation Sponsor, Cartesian will continue to host three London RAG meetings each year.
