[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

Probing mobile networks

On 14 May 2010 we were scheduled to go to several places and decided while on the road to use our phones to check how signals for Globe and Smart would switch from typical GSM signal or 2G, 3G and HSDPA or 3.5G.

The phones we used are both SE with models of G502 for Globe and C902 for Smart. Both are 2G, 3G and HSDPA capable.

Going to Libis, Quezon City, the following were the routes we take:

From EDSA along Roxas Blvd > Gil Puyat > Finlandia > cross South Super Highway > Philippine National Railway > Dela Rosa, Pio del Pilar > Makati Medical Center > Dela Costa > cross Ayala Avenue > between RCBC building and Cityland > Gil Puyat > EDSA > Boni > EDSA Central > Shaw Blvd > Ortigas Center > San Miguel Ave > Julia Vargas > SM Pasig > Frontera > Ortigas Avenue > E. Rodriguez > Eastwood City

Going to back to EDSA, Roxas Blvd, the following were the routes we take:

Eastwood City > E. Rodriguez > C5 > Kalayaan > EDSA, Roxas Blvd

Smart were consistent in 3G and were not able to detect HSDPA. Globe were able to switch on HSDPA, which has strong signal in places mentioned above (see bold texts), however 2G and 3G signals were also flickering in few areas along the way.

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
