Technology delivering technology

It has been every organization's goal, the industry where they operate included, to have a technology and help run and facilitate every, if not particularly the high-value, area of business.  Sounds just what technology is for almost everything that humans do, including their businesses. Right? It's what the technology team must do and they did.  However, some of the actions they are emulating doesn't seem to be true at all. It's still about technology for the sake of technology. This is not only wrong, it is breaking the very notion that technology is helping people and it is always there whatever they do. When technology arrives and they use it, what happens is the usual messy experience that they already had from the past, and to think they are now on the new ones and still encountering the same problem. Imagine why some organizations can do it better and had been always ahead. Meaning, problems are contained that people didn't even notice there was any, no matte

Outsource overall management and operation of IT possible

With the ever increasing reliance of organizations to IT, and others not keen to supporting their in-house technical staff to update skills, there is a big chance they cannot deliver what is expected of them. Some years ago, many claims that IT already plays a major part in the business including national infrastructure like energy, finance and transportation. It is critical that IT including the most important element of it, the people, are given reasonable access to resources they require to become effective in what they have been assigned to do. Organizations even though they require it, cannot maximize IT if so-called resources are not being treated fairly. Solution is outsource overall IT activities.

Though outsourcing has been successful in many areas, IT management and operations might require a different parameters, a carefully crafted policy, terms and service agreement, so customers are assured that IT is constantly being delivered to support the needs of the organization. The management would expect good strategy and stakeholders will always be informed about the condition of their IT and how they use it to provide services required of the business.

The outsourcing company would have to innovate, develop techniques and work diligently to make sure IT, their duties and responsibilities are optimally utilize as expected by the customers. That they will provide notifications. It would also be included in the service to tap education and training and consider allowing participation of all stakeholders to any IT-related activities, especially that can directly impact the operation of the business. The customer’s management team would have to be furnished necessary information for them to know how and when to act, about their organization’s strive in IT, and that they should have a clear picture of how IT is supporting their business. It is also apparent that the outsourced and outsourcing organizations be always in the same page about IT. For the outsourced to have accurate knowledge and understanding on situations regarding their business’ use of IT, the outsourcing organization should provide adequate resources and timely information, to mention a few.

Philippine telcos blocking entire SMS text with internet addresses in it

If you are sending SMS texts to your friends, family or colleagues and they contain internet or web address including IP and email addresses, and even a period or dot separating, regardless of, your words and numbers, they are automatically blocked and not going to be received by your waiting recipient. Cooler heads must prevail here especially if an important message is urgently being expected. IP version 6 address is fine. However, an IPv4 including localhost address (given automatically to every computers and network interfaces as their own alone designed for troubleshooting purposes), and your money in the billion figure using dot as separators would be blocked.  If you send "local.business, naman.naman etcetera" or any words that made you use dot in between them, as part of the text, they will be blocked. There are some, that isn't blocked in this category. Like check.iclassed, some.ent, whatever.local etcetera, that is because they do not form any domain name at all

Philippine cyber campaign

Are Philippine institutions being targeted or simply being probed? We don't know for certain. It could be either or both. Whichever comes first? What we can understand, with the success of such attacks, is that they have found their way. Really.   How hard or easy? The attacker knows, but probably, also, those being attacked. Inclination should be there no matter how sophisticated our security systems are. In cybersecurity, we do a very focused job. Making sure we disappoint whoever is trying to gain access to any resource without permission and authority regardless of the environment we are in. What happened is that every asset deemed to have every variant of resource built-in, operating, that makes up the entire system working whatever it is trying to employ, in that case the primary purpose. Meaning, we have to know if we are running our system in a manner that is really secure, provisioned properly during design stage and managed continuously afterwards, post-implementation. No

iclassed privacy policy, unbelievable at first sight

Those who, before engaging us and was reading our business conduct, alerts and notices , could not restrain themselves asking, "can you really do your job without keeping any data at all? At the end of the day, you should still be looking at those information and make sure you did, and will, do well. I am expecting a lot from you here, you said so yourself!" Now, that last sentence is so loud. We keep them, not in our premises, but yours. If you've been our clients, you'll know how persistent we are when it comes to the reliability and security of your systems, data and credentials. That's our responsibility, as is made popular by cloud computing, and we don't need to be in a cloud.
