[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

[TW] Data and related-identifier, load tussle

Data is important in our jobs. It is the key to factual business decisions and even market innovations. The basis for policy making in many organizations, enterprises, governments and scientific pursuits.

Data fed into AIs and technical related endeavors must be handled with caution. It must be scrutinized with keen interests and attention for stakeholders' legitimate purposes and in accordance to standard necessities, actual intentions and aims.

Excesses or any hint of raggedness is to the detriment of any customer and must be taken as cue that something sinister, if not anomaly, exists in a system. To be exact, it could be a specific code, variables and functions that facilitates such data or events and what makes them skim.

Data and identifiers makes humans and their activities numbered including but not limited to UUID, DOI, SIM, ICCID, IMEI, SEID, MEID, WWN, MAC and IP addresses. They exist in varying types of computers or devices, their processors, storage and software or applications and of which they are connected to the internet.

You can further prove what's really causing the issue by doing your own experiment, how and when your load disappears especially for local mobile prepaid subscribers which has been a problem for a very long time and yet they still are a problem. In order to do your experiment, as subscriber, and that your work is plausible you need to make sure your smartphone or whatever device you use for your SIM card to enable data or connect to the internet, and that you understand what consumes your prepaid the moment you turned on your data connection, mostly, via LTE, and now 5G which is still growing.

If your load is disappearing and you haven't even turned on your data connection and that you are certain it happened not only once but it has become frequent already, take note of the details including when you buy load and when your load began to disappear.

It also happens to postpaid. The most concrete way to monitor how your telco is billing your usage is don't use your SIM at all. You will know when you are being billed properly or that some irregularity is being tolerated or it has become part of their system.

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
