I’m having an early night, despite complaints that there’s no such thing as an early night in Singapore. Slothing.

Sandra Ng has some great material that’s best presented as some annotated lists. I’ll come back to all that later in the week.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m sure that I’m not in a position to confirm or deny that.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: The Roman alphabet is a fad!

via Janetter for Mac

I’m fairly sure that’s not a good attitude.

What is a K-Pop band doing using the roman alphabet anyway?

80% of Asian producers’ sales are now in non-Asian markets.

On-time, on-budget and quality IT project KPIs are just project hygiene, the real deliverables are now actual revenue.

via Janetter for Mac

More talk from CIOs that IT projects must deliver business revenue, not just outcomes. Heads of IT given business outcome PKIs.

via Janetter for Mac

How aggressively will you be using IT (cf last year) to deliver business outcomes? 49% more, 44% same, 5% less, 25 dunno.

via Janetter for Mac

Next up, Sandra Ng, vice-president IDC, on Top ICT Trends for Asia Pacific CIOs.

via Janetter for Mac

Lots of interesting stuff from Mark Goudie, and I daresay I’ll write something tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

Being trolled by the presenter. WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING?

via Janetter for Mac

In other words, when organisations are targeted and get breached, they’re breached HARD. There’d be stretch marks.

via Janetter for Mac

Across all organisations, 79% of victims are targets of opportunity. But the 16% known targeted, that’s 63% of all data stolen.

via Janetter for Mac

In healthcare industry, smaller orgs aren’t breaches for patient records but payment card data. [Again I’m picking highlights.]

via Janetter for Mac

In finance and insurance sector, 56% or breach targets are ATMs.

via Janetter for Mac

Retail orgs focus on protecting laptops on the move but key targets are POS systems, web/application servers, database servers.

via Janetter for Mac

25% of breaches of large orgs are now “disagreement or protest”, 3% of all orgs. Yep, the “rise of the hacktivist” message.

via Janetter for Mac

@ikostar All this is about data breaches. Nothing to do with copyright infringement. Read the report for definitions. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ikostar

I won’t tweet all the individuals figures, ‘cos they’re in report what I tweeted.

via Janetter for Mac

Number of breaches per year steadily increasing, average size of breaches is getting smaller.

via Janetter for Mac

From 2004-2007, only 75% of data breaches involved external agents, by 2011 it was 98%.

via Janetter for Mac

But intellectual property theft is now an emerging cross-sector factor.

via Janetter for Mac

Four key targets for data breaches: healthcare, retail trade, financial and insurance, and accommodation and food services.

VES seeing strong demand for project management skills in business process transformation.

@josefajardo @Dewey2000 In a country of 2B people, 5M IT workers is nothing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to josefajardo

[I think VES’ APAC strategy is, but in many more words, to build on their core strengths, mindful of customer needs. Ah good.]

Factoids: China employes 5M IT workers, almost all in government. India creates 600k IT graduates each year.

Describing massive data growth on machine-to-machine transactions… [so we’re in a big data conversation again].

via Janetter for Mac

[Observation: This model seems to put identity as a thing companies define and predict. Are people losing control of identity.]

via Janetter for Mac

We’re moving from reactionary view of identities (identify identity theft, investigate, prosecute) to predictive analytics.

via Janetter for Mac

Opening point is social implication of identity management, from controlling social media identities to identity theft.

@mpesce @AntonyGreen You are proposing an evil alliance there, Sir!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Asked whether VES, being US, would use Huawei gear in their core network. Lulz. Can’t comment, not sure, policy not to discuss.

via Janetter for Mac

VES is experiencing growth in the region. Question from journo: “Is that positive growth or negative growth?”

via Janetter for Mac

VES has very significant plans for security and cloud offerings in AUS. More details follow.

via Janetter for Mac

Seeing biggest growth in China will be M2M telematics.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce Is that about getting adult supervision for CNN, or adult supervision for @AntonyGreen?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

VES does have some AUS-only customers, JAP-only companies etc. “Larger end of non-multinational.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Does “chief marketing officer” cover that?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

VES has ~50 data centres globally, 13 in APAC, “several” in Australia. Hope to be expanding in AUS.

Healthcare industry is taxpayers’ money, so number one concern is preventing fraud. [Orly? Not patient health? Oh OK then.]

All this is linked with talk of business process transformation. [Remarkably similar to what IBM says. They’re the enemy?]

Well, rather than seeking immediate medical attention, I’m doing this APAC media briefing with Verizon Business. You know it makes sense.

via Janetter for Mac

Oops. Checking with the drug information sheet, I discover that I should have just sought immediate medical attention. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac

You may not have been able to tell, but in amongst that earlier rant and my lie-down I found a whole new scary adverse reaction to a drug.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, the lie-down did help.

It’s not even a proper bandwagon, Dear Media, ‘cos you don’t even have a fucking wagon, let alone a band.

via Janetter for Mac

One day a media outlet will finally say, “We’ll bring you the full election results when they’re known. Meanwhile, in ALL THE OTHER NEWS…”

via Janetter for Mac

Then rolling news media would cover it. “Well, Brian, it’s too early to call.” SO WHY THE FUCK EVEN START COVERING IT YET DO SOMETHING ELSE.

via Janetter for Mac

Can you imagine Twitter coverage of a quiet day at the beach with gently rolling ocean waves? IT’S GOING UP UP NO DOWN DOWN UP UP DOWN DOWN.

@Idealaw Indeed. A key part of my linguistics course was understanding the rich variety of languages and losing Anglo-centric descriptions.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Idealaw

@Idealaw Yeah most people just know past, present and future. Grammatical tense is a LOT more complicated than that. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammatic…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Idealaw

@Idealaw The historical present tense was discussed in the Lexicon Valley podcast episode 15. slate.com/articles/podca…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Idealaw

@Idealaw Do you mean the tense called “historical present”? “Captain Cook arrives in Botany Bay and sees it would be a good anchorage.”
