We measure IT and our work

With so many areas to measure in IT we cannot emphasize enough how important it is do so even when no one seem to be interested about it. Even in program and project management which is most likely where measurement is a heavy part of the whole exercise, it is only to make sure time, materials and budget are all in the same place for a very specific purpose, and not entirely the enterprise. The measurement ends when the project ends.

If only program and project management mechanisms are always applied every time an IT or any area in it is being dealt with. May be there will not be any problem with measurement and stakeholders need not to worry about surprises. Remember project management, like other practices within IT, is not a panacea. If we are lax and miss something, project fails and so resources burns.

Seven years ago, we articulated about why measuring IT was a problem and it still is true up to this time. In fact, IT problems without much departure from the old ones seem to keep bugging out and they are ignored completely as if they never passed the wide optic. But then the eye might be simply being dependent on an available knowledge.

We said before, though there have been proven measurement methodologies to effectively govern the whole organization, measuring IT correctly may have been, as evidence suggests, subtle and an improperly conceived prospect as part of the overall facets of business. The measure up IT, avaialble at Social Science Research Network, which update now long overdue had explored such opportunity and found out based on the results of study that formal and proven methodologies and even an ad-hoc one can be used to effectively measure the business value of IT. However, a particular issue have also been discovered that concerned stakeholders may not be aware of such effort if key executives could not properly communicate nor senior managers could not execute correctly the objectives and priorities of the business where IT can be properly fitted in. 

Either an IT is just beginning or it already reaches where allocated money is almost near to its exhaustion there is no better way to do now than ask and be assured if projects are getting there as they were planned or not. In IT we need a recurrent work to reduce risks which can consume business results.

[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

iPhone 6s devices, longest to receive operating system updates

The recent release of iOS 15.5 to iPhone 6s is not a surprise to owners as they may have known it from last year when it was announced that iOS 15 will still be available for these devices. Indeed, the longest software update , according to The Verge, for a smartphone. If you are one of those who still hold dear such device, kept and taken care of with the same shiny look when it was bought, not a mat and scratch allowed on the surface, you would know that there had been one single major issue as you are about to run the update. Not enough storage.  In order to get past storage limit, you'd delete apps and data until it already has the minimum space to continue the update. A factory reset is inevitable to others, due to the fact that even after deleting all data including big multimedia files, it is still deficient of storage space.  Don't forget to backup your most treasured data though, before deleting all content or resetting the entire system, to other devices such as your
