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

Know thy time

It's a statement and work of Peter Drucker. He's the management practice master, the dean of the profession and the discipline in general according to his works, literature and practitioners themselves. He's behind the notable Non-profit's Drucker Prize for which he defined innovation as change that creates new dimension of performance, which means very big about time in human activity.

Leaders of all organizations, in business, health, education, technology including but not limited to innovation, except military which may vary in high degree for some reasons, knows about management and why time is the best argument for humans to not forget when doing their job.

In consulting, generally, this is probably the main reason why their outcome is crucial and that their fees are not that cheap. They do understand their job, the value they create and contribute to the organization they work with. They can also be fully aware to the broader aspect of business which is the subject of their work regardless of the specifics of a given chore.

However, fees may have been always at the bottom of the agenda. On top is the solution itself. That's what they are for and as far as we can see.

They know what they are doing and also the variables around their work. They dislike failures in their outcomes and no excuses if at all. They just deliver and have it verified, always in tandem, with their work and as they progress. The intervening ruler will flash in red if there is mistake. Which can be corrected immediately.

With IT the goal can be made even more precise. While many says IT is complex and it is so only due to human differences in their ability to handle their own business which is mostly drawn out by outside factors. Some would even equate medicine's specialization to IT's specific practice area. It's completely different, they are linked up and integrated. Medicine is not except when patients health conditions have already developed complications.

IT can be addressed right away with the job at hand. No need history. IT practitioners education of solid fundamentals would show why something is wrong with a business application or the entire enterprise systems are in complete disarray.

An IT practitioner that doesn't have any excuse but to move forward and work and solve problems, will have no issue at all except for things that are out of its control. Organizations or clients need to understand this very well. Of course, with the help of its IT practitioner or IT consultnat. It shows why with the 8Ps we created when we began IT consulting, and then it helps how our training, its pedagogy, must be developed differently from the mainstream at a later part of our enterprise. There are solutions and services to explore, a trial and error scenario for many, which can result into expenses which, and time, are two important resources not to waste. Time can also say if a measurement being used for a certain activity is effective and how major resources are being used up, for the existence, or to support the continuing growth, of the business itself. It also states very loud about where an organization is now and then with respect to innovation, business systems and/or IT maturity, its market and not ending with competition.

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.
