While most companies have some kind of disaster recovery (DR) plan in place, a shocking number end up being ineffective in real life scenarios. When disaster strikes – in the form a catastrophic weather event, floods or earthquakes, or even a power outage or fire at a data center – servers and storage devices may be knocked offline. Databases and websites may then become completely unavailable to potential users – and some will suffer permanent damage. There can be catastrophic economic consequences as well as headaches when this happens.
Protecting your investment is just good business. Following best practices around backing up your website’s data and a good security plan are your best defense against expensive offline or down time.
Making sure your website is performing to its full potential is equal parts preparation and maintenance. Paying attention to the way search engines work, and planning for search optimization and analytics functionality at the outset can turn your website into a powerful tool for data collection and analysis.
These days, it’s a given that virtually every business, no matter how small, will have a website on the go. There are good reasons for this. On the sites of our clients, we not only display their entire product lineup, but also drill down into deeper information – such as product specifications, payment methods and financing offerings. You can use this kind of deep information to lead the user along to a conversion from being simply a viewer to being a customer. This type of dynamic interactivity is essential in the fast-paced modern marketplace.

At the Elevate conference last week we got an introduction to a new concept called Portfolio Level costs. This includes managing funding and commitments at the global level, not tied to specific projects. This is a big breakthrough, and many of us have been waiting years for a project management information system to not only implement this, but to implement it correctly. And I can say that the solution looks great to me! In this post I will focus on the Master Commitments part of this system.
Monday was the main event for me at OpenWorld – the Primavera Strategic Vision session.
The first big news was that Primavera is no more! Well, at least in terms of the specific organization of Oracle. What was the Primavera Global Business Unit is now the Construction and Engineering Business Unit…
Well it’s that time of year again, the annual pilgrimage to San Francisco to see what Oracle is offering in the coming year, and to touch base with the wider Oracle community. While the official opening keynote by Larry Ellison is always on Sunday night, there is plenty of opportunity earlier in the day to learn and network with others…
Calance began looking for a new Antivirus solution when it became clear that our current solution was not up to the industry standards. We researched multiple vendors, checked industry trusted advisory firms (Gartner), and after testing a short list of candidates, decided to go with Kaspersky.
