Business benefits of IT stood in the foreground of Freienbach, 2nd 2009 last week held the seventh IT Strategy Forum on Lake Zurich. Over 90 top manager international of leading corporations in business and IT work out the basic ideas of a post crisis agenda for the IT infrastructure. This was the business benefits of IT in the center of the discussions and lectures. The IT Strategy Forum organized by Bankole management consulting in the meantime for the seventh time on Lake Zurich this year brought together senior business and IT managers of from well-known corporations such as AXA, Merck, BMW, Novartis, Linde, Swisscom, Baloise, Credit Suisse, Swiss Post, Kuhne & Nagel, RBS, Swiss Re and Morgan Stanley. Mostly, the Manager agreed that IT a very important role for the management is coming to presumably still a quite while ongoing crisis. Dell Computers addresses the importance of the matter here.
Dr. Thomas Buberl, CEO of Zurich Switzerland, stressed two roles for IT in the crisis: IT must reduce costs on the one hand, but at the same time as enabler for the business transformation prove its worth”. Thereby, IT should quite often challenge the business”he explained. “An effective way to achieve both outlined Selcuk Bankole, host and initiator of the IT Strategy Forum: IT must consistently on the objectives and priorities of the top management focus.” Measures aimed at the business benefits could help to achieve this alignment. So, for example, the strategic value added level of IT could be measured as a percentage of the IT activities contributing directly to the success of the company and expelled. According to a recent study, this proportion varies depending on the company from under 20% (value followers) and about 60 per cent (value leaders).
This way of looking is highly relevant to the top management and facilitates their understanding of the IT infrastructure. Also it makes possible a systematic promotion of the business benefits of IT while reducing the costs”Bankole said. This underscores even Franz cedar, Member of the Executive Board of the Swiss health insurer of Sanitas and Andreas of Bagde, CIO of seat Germany with concrete examples from practice. They showed IT so can deliver more business value can be how business and IT strategy coordinated with each other, and in the business by unplanned and unsustainable cost savings in IT spar damage is avoided. Participants and speakers of the IT Strategy Forum in unison demanded a different approach between IT and business side. On the one hand IT must be to have much more on the business. “Also lines and top management would have to contributing their mites: the business must develop more understanding of the IT matters”, Raiffeisen Switzerland stressed about Dr Patrik Gisel, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board. Not only between IT and the business page, understanding problems occur frequently on, but also between IT and IT”remarked Dr. Andreas Huber by the Austrian erste Group Bank. In his role as head of operations group corporate and investment banking, he noted that sometimes rule between different IT departments mutual incomprehension. This silo thinking is no longer appropriate”, he said. “” To the vicarious”to the enabler”have to be IT needs real entrepreneurial leaders, entrepreneurial thinking and the courage, to take risks “.

What is the Firefall to the host servers, anycast for DNS servers is the good old days, where hackers attacked the CIA and the Pentagon, is over. Today, any website can become the target of hackers and script-kids. Numerous providers were affected last year by distributed denial of service attacks on DNS servers. The year’s results in connection with recently reported power outages should give seriously to think all companies with an Internet presence at Rollingstone.com or Comcast”, Cricket Liu, Vice President of architecture at Infoblox and author commented on various book titles. Despite the years in which weak points of the domain name system (DNS) described name and published appropriate mains failures in connection with DNS, many companies DNS security lightly.
We have not nearly reached, what is required to stop hackers, to wreak havoc.” If the website of your company still unaffected – she was that could be next to the at times is forced by the network. It can be however with anycast name servers do much themselves to improve the security of your domains. Anycast is a technology where the same IP address in multiple geographic locations is available at the same time. BGP, the global routing protocol of the Internet, ensures that requests to the topologically closest instance are carried out. For even more details, read what Ali Partovi says on the issue. This reduces the latency in the DNS query, and the load is distributed over the different “nodes” (locations). In case of an attack on the name server network, only the instance of the attack “next” is affected, so that normal operation on the remaining nodes can continue to run. Through the aggregation of the nodes on a single IP address, an anycast network compared to multiple unicast instances saves also “space” in the DNS packets, because it consists of the anycast network only as a single NS record in the delegation appears currently 6 active (and 3 planned) globally distributed locations: Brussels, Belgium Dublin, Ireland Frankfurt, Germany of new York City, NY, United States Seattle, United States Warsaw, Poland Vienna, Austria (scheduled for end 2011) Los to jellies, CA, United States (scheduled for end 2011) Singapore, Singapore (scheduled for end 2011) the corresponding “control” servers are in Vienna and Salzburg (Austria). The locations of the anycast nodes are continuously expanded all the sites are redundantly laid out and designed for a query load of 100,000 queries per second, and location. The locations are typically located in close proximity to the local Internet Exchange, and thus guarantee lowest latency. Domains with anycast name servers are not only safer and more quickly accessible, but get one also tends to be higher PageRank on Google because the speed when you call of a Web site with einfliesst in the page rank from Google.

Creates a matrix for decision making. Among several providers Software GmbH the iqs are crystallized with their module iqs SPC (production be sliding end examination) out as suitable: requirements was fulfilled exactly, also the very good experiences, the Behr said already since ISIR (initial sample inspection report) had made iqs of several years with the use of the software module for the badische company. In the framework of a diploma thesis was verified the implementation of the software in the production area Stamper as a pilot project and the software installed. The server for the region of Muhlacker was installed in Stuttgart. The connection to the works in the region smoothly Muhlacker: access times are very short, the data exchange takes place at high speed. Close contact enabled software GmbH in the context of project meetings and workshops on the spot with the iqs inpiduelle voting of software on the special circumstances of Behr. To broaden your perception, visit Peter Asaro. The very user-friendly interface took it, only a few employees to have on the operation of the software schools by BEHR in the field of quality management.
This could in turn instruct the own workers as key users through in-house training. Then, the new software was easily integrated iqs SPC with inspection planning in the production process. Issues could be processed quickly about the iqs hotline and a direct login by iqs on the PC during the remote maintenance. Desired software adjustments were always available in the next update. Because a similar problem in the area of punching existed in the plastics industry with its large variations and variety of parts, the engine expanded iqs SPC in the following year to this area. In 2010, the area of pipe welding followed finally. CAD integration in a first step the test plans in the module were created iqs test planning test plan creation. By linking the software to the technical drawing with the help of CAD integration, the mass to be tested could be simply visualize and could so quickly and safely by clicking in the inspection plan be adopted.
