We know for the fact that the Internet has become our daily guide. To keep ourselves from worrying if we have acquired or gotten some viruses whether from the sites that we checked or files that we downloaded, it is best to ensure that we have installed a reliable anti-virus software. True enough, we will be getting our money’s worth over time since it would be more costly for our part if our computer or laptop will be infected with the viruses around. As they say, it is best to be safe from the start and find a prevention rather than it’s too late.

Oracle recently released its latest version of its software, Identity Manager. For those who are new to this, it’s a user provisioning and administration software application that enables companies to update, upgrade, and add or remove user accounts from other applications and directories. Oracle states that the latest version of Identity Manager improves compliance since it provides “granular” reports which identified which users has access to specific data and other pertinent and sensitive information – which has always been a challenge for companies who wish to meet “regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, FFIEC and PCI.”

SMM and SEO: bridging the gap?

The world of search is a complicated and rapidly changing place. It is impossible to settle into a groove if you wish to be successful in a sustainable fashion. As soon as a strategy is working well, the launch of new technology means that the strategy has to be adapted. If a tactic is proving very successful, chances are that the search engines will eventually consider it too manipulative and categorise it as unethical. This means that flexibility is absolutely pivotal in this area. Failure to adapt with sufficient alacrity leads to a site being outperformed by its rivals.

At Searchengineoptimisation.com we are conscious of the need to research and monitor developments in the exciting and dynamic sphere of search. Our tailored social media campaigns pay heed to the unique characteristics of the sites we drive forward, while we always respect the need to change tack in the light of alterations in the external environment.

Internet meltdown?

net.jpg

Is this even possible? According to The Business Roundtable which is an association of CEO�s of established US companies, the threat is �urgent and real.� The breakdown of such critical information infrastructure has a 10 to 20% chance of happening in the next ten years. This can be a result of many incidences. It can be natural such as calamities or even man-made disasters such as malicious codes, code errors, or terrorist attacks.

The group also stated that an Internet meltdown, if it would ever happen, will result in reduced productivity. Profits will fall as well as stock prices. Consumer spending will erode and a liquidity crisis has a big possibility of happening. This was also discussed in �Growing Business Dependence on the Internet � New Risks Require CEO Action� � a Business Roundtable report based on earlier risk analyses done by the World Economic Forum in Geneva.

SharePoint 2010 Multi-lingual User Interface

Multi-lingual User Interface—the name says it all! Isn’t it? Yes, SharePoint Server 2010 has introduced the Multi-lingual User Interface (MUI), which is available with every type of site—even the SharePoint Server Central Administration site.

In order to use the Multi-lingual User Interface, you should install the language pack on your server. After you install the necessary language packs you will have the option to enable the multilingual user interface on a per site basis using site settings. Once you enable alternate languages, users will see a language picker control in the top right of the page where they can switch the site to the language of their choice. Even SharePoint Foundation 2010 enjoys this feature.

Below given parts of the SharePoint user interface are actually impacted by the Multi-lingual User Interface:
* All the standard SharePoint user interface elements are translated
* Navigation menu’s also support multilingual scenario’s with the MUI – if you switch your language and translate specific menu nodes in your navigation – these changes are language specific
* The headings for list columns
* The managed metadata field type also supports multilingual scenarios.
Note that the English language is used for the following out-of-the-box labels: Site Actions, Browse, Page, Home, Libraries, Lists, Discussions, Recycle Bin, All Site Content.

Take advantage of SharePoint Multi-lingual Interface and other features included in SharePoint family of products including Microsoft SharePoint 2007, SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation, and associated free SharePoint templates and web parts.

Internet connection is the main reason for these choppy connections and with bigger data needed to allow people to see them, expect upgrades in providing faster and reliable connection on the web in the coming years. With that in mind, expect as well new media to be served on the web.

So as you can see, it is a cat and mouse thing. Improve your service to open new gateways for innovation. That’s just how it works.
