How functional and secure AES is

How functional and secure AES is? The Philippine electorate will once again go to polls and decide who will lead the nation in the next six years of their lives. This important event which will elect new president, vice president and 12 senators for national posts, and seats are also being contested for provincial, city and municipal levels, is expected to be counted unofficially in 24 hours, concluded or canvassed officially in a few days or so but authorities and observers expected it to be done in less than a week. Last presidential election, it was known three days after close of election precincts. This is especially true for nation states, not only the Philippines, that conducts their elections using automated election or computerized-and-networked voting systems.

IT practitioners as decision-makers


While the IT practitioner is charged to the job, still the most responsible decision-maker is the organization’s senior management or business owner. It ensures a direction and/or strategy for the whole enterprise, its business objectives including but not limited to relevant activities. Meaning, the entire organization have set both, the job and strategy, correctly and diligently.

In our kind of work, the professional experience we have since been accumulating, we know firsthand that some decisions are left for the IT practitioners to make. 

When they do, IT practitioners need to counterbalance and be upfront what they have in their resources. What they create will have an impact to their organizations’ well-being. Worst, drastic to financials or bottom line. Their failure will be their companies’, too, and they don't want that to happen. Do they? 

As an aspiring IT practitioner, you already need to see what impact your surroundings are causing to your apprehensions or output and the prospect of your organization or business. As a practicing individual you need to appreciate and be conscious how you must be running your affairs effectively and efficiently. Or in the case of our industry, and the society as a beneficiary, that big, we must be discharging our duties and responsibilities decently.

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

[TW] Technology impact on enterprises, consumer and data

The best time to learn the art and science of technology consulting or just the necessary practice required for a business not to be left behind or not to bleed cash unnessentially is now. Technology is magnanimous but it doesn't mean it has to continue being an alien to almost everyone. Technologies surrounding computers, the Internet, programmable devices, sensors, AI, differentiated network convergence and decentralized systems, data and content are gaining an unprecedented development and adaptation within, and greatly affecting, enterprises, societies and their people. It must be the more powerful that everyone become a learned stakeholder, not just an end-user and leave everything to the vendor, service provider and their technology counterparts. Smart cities are a giant technological upgrade and the experience must make people deal more for their lives in a better way. Why make everyone learn? Businesses can focus what matters to them.
