The Model Train-set Syndrome - ITChronicles

A proper layout required budget, planning and organisation, and probably a rather single minded focus on one dream amongst other options.

I discovered that – in our brave new digital world – business cards can be useful but are not essential.

Government’s ability to handle cybersecurity incidents is concerning, particularly in the knowledge that these attacks are growing in frequency and sophistication. SecurityScorecard, a leader in security ratings, today released its annual U.S. State and Federal Government Cybersecurity Report. The study paints a grim picture of the overall cyber health of the nation’s government entities. In the midst of investigations into a potential 2016 election hacking, regular major malware events, and an overall increase in the number of sophisticated cyberattacks, the report highlights that the government sector is lagging compared to almost every other industry.

However, there are some standout performers that have demonstrated superior cybersecurity capabilities. SecurityScorecard analyzed more than 500 federal, state, and local government agencies in the United States, compared this group to 17 other expansive industries and evaluated this group’s security capabilities across 10 categories.

Boeing STEM Learning Support Nurtures Future Designers - ITChronicles. Encouraging the next generation of thinkers, dreamers and creators can be a daunting role for teachers. It is exciting to see corporations like Boeing being actively involved in promoting STEM learning activities – and why wouldn’t they, they could well be providing the tools that encourage their next generation of aircraft designers. Are you a teacher who is looking for fun classroom activities with a STEM focus? Boeing, Iridescent’s Curiosity Machine, PBS Learning Media and the Teaching Channel have produced a collection of educational materials and tutorials that children can use to find alternative energy sources, engineer an airfoil, and design their own satellite, among other activities.

These activities are designed to help students develop important skills like the ability to think critically, collaborate and communicate effectively. All materials and tutorials are available to download for free at Boeing’s Educational Resources page. The following two tabs change content below. DevOps Enterprise Summit London - First Speakers Announced - ITChronicles. Can Governments Defend Against Cyber Attacks? - ITChronicles. Enterprises Add Threat Hunting to Cyber Crime Defenses - ITChronicles. The prevalence of cybercrime and the constant threat of intrusion into company networks has created a new role in many large enterprises – that of the threat hunter.

Threat hunting is becoming an integral part of defensive activities in larger enterprises or those that have been heavily targeted in the past, according to a new SANS Survey. But these findings also show that threat hunting is still an immature practice, relying mostly on human intuition to conduct searches. The Customer is (NOT) Always Right - The Customer Service Conundrum - ITChronicles. Popularized many years ago by those in the business of selling, the phrase “The customer is always right” continues to be a mantra for well-meaning businesses in myriad industries.

It sounds good; after all, the premise is based on the desire to provide great customer service that will see the customer happy, to ensure they are satisfied with their business transaction with us, so that they will want to return for more and encourage friends to deal with us when they need what we provide. We, as customers ourselves, want it to be true when we are engaging someone to fulfill our particular needs or desires. Online Shoppers Prefer Multi-Vendor Marketplaces - ITChronicles. Smaller retailers who are not selling via online marketplaces like Amazon, Etsy and Ebay may be missing out on one of the best routes to their customers. Nearly 70% of online shoppers prefer to purchase through online marketplaces, and small business owners may reap big benefits by selling through these marketplaces in addition to their own online stores, a new survey suggests. Comparing products and finding the best deal is the main motivation for using an online marketplace for nearly 60% of online shoppers.

The findings come from Clutch, a research and reviews platform for business services. Adults Must Encourage Children to Pursue STEM Education - ITChronicles.

Learning computer science sounds boring for children and extremely difficult for parents to understand. Bring Your Own IT Innovation - ITChronicles. A Series of Symbiotic Events - ITChronicles. Your Business Needs a Knowledge Base: Why and How - ITChronicles. It’s very common to find operations where the use of a knowledge base doesn’t exist. For example, in Brazil alone, as a point of reference, about 85 percent of the companies that hire a service management tool do not use a knowledge base or use it in a very poor way.

In fact, day-to-day work makes us worry about re-establishing order or increasing the quality of service delivery, but nobody considers the gain that a well-constructed, shared and used knowledge base can provide. Following the trend of evolution among generations, where we have now managed to solve most of our questions by accessing Google or watching videos on Youtube, the “Shift Left” concept has gained a lot of strength and knowledge management is strongly tied to it. Ok, but how can I start improving my knowledge base from scratch? Spark Ventures - A Journey to Digital Service Management - ITChronicles. Blockchain: Whose Identity Is It Anyway? - IT Chronicles.

These are the underpinning principles from which all DevOps patterns can be derived. They describe the values and philosophies that frame the processes, procedures, practices, as well as the prescriptive steps. The principles are: Systems thinkingAmplified feedback loopsCulture of continuous learning and experimentation The first Way emphasizes the performance of the entire system, as opposed to the performance of a specific silo of work or department — this can be as large as a division (e.g., Development or IT Operations) or as small as an individual contributor (e.g. a developer or system administrator). Amplified feedback loops are about creating information that allows corrections to be made continually. Prequel. Is Python the Best Programming Language for Startups? - ITChronicles.
