[TW] IT documents, audit and leaders

IT documents comes with different names such as the following: - Manual or handbook, - Policies and procedures, - Management systems, - Project plans. In the real world we have various names with unique descriptions and purposes when in fact they could be made to do a uniform direction for which actions are based for the entire IT initiatives, probably the longest in IT lifecycle is operation. The problem is our inclination on something else which is wrong. IT remains an IT area. Business remains a business area. The same problem is carried out when we conduct IT audit. Most audit are missing the gists in which IT is being used by businesses. We once said that an effective IT audit is conducted by IT people themselves but there is something wrong with that even. Business and accounting people have been doing it with a different bias and preconceived notions which doesn't make the cut for IT direction and audit respectively. Leaders play the same game and so the problem continues an

EU unveils five-year digital economy plan

If you are going to look at the targets, they not really are going to be delivered in that span of five-year. It maybe that is to initially put all of the foundations (e.g. infrastructure to be laid out all of EU) necessary to accomplished the mentioned targets. After the infrastructure and other critical dependencies has been deployed and ready, I am thinking enabling the services would no longer be that hard considering said foundation has been carefully planned, designed and delivered to provide necessary services to the member countries and stakeholders.

EurActiv have just posted on 19 May 2010, European time, a report by European Union’s five-year plan to concentrate on infrastructure for high-speed Internet.

The following are the main objectives in support of the said plan: 

  • Ultra-fast broadband by 2020: 50% of European households should have subscriptions above 100Mbps (no baseline).
  • Promoting eCommerce: 50% of the population should be buying online by 2015.
  • Cross-border eCommerce: 20% of the population should be buying across borders online by 2015.
  • Single market for telecoms services: the difference between roaming and national tariffs should approach zero by 2015.
  • ICT R&D increase: Double public investment to €11 billion.

Expressed information is key

It must be a great deal, nowadays. Though, not easy to accomplish and as easy as we say it, not impossible to re/construct it considering all the resources being wasted and ruined unwittingly, as the most probable causes ever. Given that we always try hard to be understood every time. With the COVID19 onslaught, or in any manner of emergency cases, it is very important for people to know where to find authoritative information. Mostly, we go to our government and organization's websites, the almost permanent fixture of our public information. We tune in to press conference and telecommunications' alert messaging on behalf of, or directives from the government and, its customers. Sometimes, the news would find us. Governments, international organizations and multinational companies need to have a coordinated strategy how to dispatch information, which can be a guidance what needs to be done and anything special when it comes to the safety and welfare of everyone. Above all, cru
