Enterprise technology's juxtaposition, complementarity and application

The ability to see within an enterprise with operations requiring various technologies in information, communication, operational, security and compliance, or two or more of these, finds stakeholders, or the need to adjust techniques and make, some ingenious ways to be more effective in their responsibilities and deliverables or production. Enterprise technology is not an area and language to be used where there are only some specializations involved but which still within the confines of information technology. IT may have been serving utility operations or energy generation for sometime already and yet stakeholders cannot see how to work hand-in-hand to increase their own efficiency, and the output for which customers are very dependent. There are efforts but they remain completely separate and the result is the bigger realizations and concerns about costs rather than creation of value from the start, not just when profits began to come in. If IT is not clearly use in such environmen

Progressive web applications

 Just another way to make life easier in a technology environment. 

If you have been using internet browsers for your business applications i.e. ERP and technology platforms i.e. webmail, and it becomes tiring to go to your bookmarks every time, worse if you are still typing the URL for every website you visit repeatedly, then PWA may just be the answer for that.

PWA works with any general purpose computers like Windows, MacOS and Linux and with your mobile devices, too. When you are in mobile and having a hard time finding the PWA setup, simply switch to desktop screen and do it from there. 

How about if I already have dedicated applications and I don't necessarily used internet browsers? There is nothing we can do if there is no other way to do your work except for using the given application. In other cases like mail clients i.e. Outlook and Thunderbird, when your connection is rough you might want to try using PWA.

Applications like mail clients are heavier compared to PWA. The traffic that go through such applications uses some protocols i.e. SMTP and IMAP or POP to send and receive messages. PWA as in any web browser simply uses HTTPS, which is also what makes cloud computing a promising technology, appealing to new end-users to explore and adopt, is so straightforward, not only on the onset. Even when you build your system in the cloud, you simply go through the same path and the strain, due to limited resource on your end, that you may suppose may have impact to your activity, is barely felt.

For a bad internet connection, PWA would make access a little faster when dealing with such kind of services. 

Let's make this quick and be done with it.

Take note that the website, or any particular page, that you are trying to install must have already been applied and supported with PWA. Without this, you may not be able to enable PWA for it. Usually, you'd see them disabled or grayed out. 

You need to be on the website in order to install PWA with it. When it's done, your PWA could be seen as an icon in your device's "home".

If you are using

- Brave, go to menu by clicking to the three stacked horizontal lines, to the top right, find "More tools" then "Create shortcut".

- Chrome, same as Brave. 

- Edge, go to menu by clicking the three (3) dotted horizontal lines, to the top right, find "Apps" then "Install this site as an app".

- Firefox, go to these URLs (pick which is preferable for you, either 1 or 2) to learn more how to apply PWA with it.

- Opera, in the address bar, type "opera://flags" then search for "PWA", using lower case is fine, and you'll see "desktop PWAs app home page" then find and select "Enabled" from the drop down bar. Click "Relaunch" button below right. That's a start but the capability, as of posting, isn't available yet (we'll update this for sure).

This is just the overview of how to use progressive web applications. Later on, actually some are already here, and there will be more ways to make an online application to be installed entirely offline.

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 ", 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.
