  • Why base64-output=DECODE-ROWS does not print row events in MySQL binary logs

    Sveta Smirnova
    30 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    Lately I saw many cases when users specified option--base64-output=DECODE-ROWS  to print out a statement representation of row events in MySQL binary logs just to get nothing. Reason for this is obvious: option--base64-output=DECODE-ROWS  does not convert row events into its string representation, this is job of option--verbose. But why users mix these two options so often? This blog post is result of my investigations.There are already two great blog posts about printing row events on the Percona blog: “Debugging problems with row based replication” by Justin Swanhart and…

    23 Jul 2015 | 10:17 pm
    Summary: Workflow can be seen as a way of doing authentication. This blog post discusses how API access management is done and why workflow should be part of that. APIs present different authorization challenges than when people access a Web site or other service. Typically, API access is granted using what are called "developer keys" but are really an application specific identifier and password (secret). That allows the API to track who's making what call for purposes of authorization, throttling, or billing. Often, more fine-grained permissioning is needed. If the desired access control is…

Recently when I've rented cars I've increasingly asked for a Ford. Usually a Ford Fusion. It's true that I like Fords, but that's not why I ask for them when renting. I'm more concerned about a consistent user experience in the car's infotainment system. I have a 2010 F-150 that has been a great truck.

At Crazy Friday (OIT's summer developer workshop) we were talking about using the OAuth client-credential flow to manage access to internal APIs. An important part of enabling this is to use standard API management tools (like WSO2) to manage the OAuth credentials as well as access. We got down a rabbit hole with people trying to figure out ways to optimize that. "Surely we don't need to check each time?!?," "Can we cache the authorization??," and so on. We talked about not trying to…
  • Errors and Error Handling in KRL

Conveniently, KRL is event-driven. Consequently, using and handling errors in KRL feels natural. Moreover, it is entirely consistent with the rest of the language rather than being something tacked on. Even so, error handling features are not used often enough.

    The whitepaper “Enhancing the value of core banking transformations” by SunTec, talks about how core banking renewals continue to be an “Over my dead body” program for most CIOs with the risk of a failed project looming large – and how to be truly beneficial, transformation programs must go beyond being a mere renewal exercise.

    The perennial fear surrounding new technologies is that (human) workers will be permanently displaced, swelling the ranks of the unemployed (or unemployable). In the past, however, technological developments have tended to create new opportunities that enable more jobs rather than fewer. Artificial intelligence (AI)—although it is unlikely to ever reach the same level of human intelligence despite what Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking think—is probably no exception. Writing at ZDNet, Steve Ranger said, “Fears that artificial intelligence will munch through our job prospects and leave us…

  • Patent System: Protecting Investment or Stymying Competition?

    Jeff Clark
    3 Aug 2015 | 6:55 am
    The philosophical case for patents—or any other form of intellectual property—is dubious at best. On the practical side, however, one can easily have some sympathy for the hypothetical inventor who doesn’t want his life’s work used freely by a company that had no hand in the effort. Bernard Cole notes at EE Times, however, “Early in my career in technical journalism, I naively assumed that the key reason to apply for a patent was the legal protection it gave the applicant for an idea he or she had developed. But eventually I came to the conclusion that the real protection of a…

For instance, one might read about a patient’s bill of rights. According to Federico Guerrini at ZDNet, a recent proposal is an Internet users’ bill of rights. The Italian document, “meant to serve as the foundation for defining web users’ rights and obligations, was officially made public, under the name of the ‘Declaration of Internet Rights.’”…

However, in addition to staying on top of the importance of information technology, just filling all of the open spots in your IT department is not the only task that you have to accomplish. Once you have the people that you need, your next step has to be to find ways to boost their skills. Oh, and you need to find ways to do this without increasing your IT…

  • Business Transformation via Enterprise Architecture

    John Schmidt
    4 Aug 2015 | 5:45 am
    Business Transformation via Enterprise Architecture When I was head of Enterprise Architecture at Wells Fargo some years ago, John Stumpf, now CEO, was fond of saying “We could leave our strategic plan on an airplane, somebody could pick it up, and it wouldn’t matter. It’s all about execution.” He is still saying it as in this this recent Forbes interview. Enterprise Architecture, when done well, is a business transformation practice. Transforming a business is not about slogans, mission statements, slick PowerPoints or in-depth strategy documents. It’s about execution and actually…

    In a new report based on survey results, “The Value of Strategic Supplier Data Management”, The Aberdeen Group reviewed how supplier data is used, managed, and leveraged to achieve superior supply chain performance. The report summarizes survey results among supply chain, sourcing and procurement organizations across all industries and geographies. In particular, it examines the capabilities and technologies of Leaders vs. Followers. (Leaders are defined as the top 30% of all respondents based on performance).

  • Big Data Success Requires Metadata and a High EQ

    3 Aug 2015 | 4:45 pm
    We’re not quite in the trough of disillusionment yet when it comes to big data, but certainly there are numerous stumbling blocks. As with almost all new technologies, after the initial period of infatuation, many have found they are still far from realizing their visions. In fact, quite a few have realized that they never actually had a vision—their big data implementation has not been driven by an end purpose but by the desire to play with cool new toys. Organizations which have achieved new breakthroughs using big data—whether it is accelerating insights in clinical research by…
  • Why Clean Data is An Asset

    Rob Karel
    3 Aug 2015 | 1:45 pm
    Why Clean Data is An AssetIn the early days of data management (let’s say the 1990s-2000s. A lifetime ago – if you’re a millennial!) data quality was a cog in IT’s gears to support each incremental and ultimately disappointing attempt to get the business to start embracing that massive data warehouse investment.   Data quality was a tool, but not yet a discipline, because data was an organizational by-product – not an enterprise asset. Fast-forward to today and there’s not an industry in existence that hasn’t been disrupted or transformed by the explosion of data in…

  • Why SSL Puts Your Organization at Risk

    Kris Lall
    28 Jul 2015 | 11:43 am
    Nothing breeds acrimony like success. Such is the case with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Originally developed by Netscape (remember Netscape?) for their web browser to encrypt communications between web browsers and servers, the SSL specification was eventually taken on and standardized by the IETF as the Transport Layer Security (TLS) specification. SSL became the de facto standard for the encryption of HTTP network communications and was quickly adopted for other network protocols, including terminal emulation protocols like TN3270. Now a victim of its own success, SSL has become a target…
  • Could Your Company Pass a PCI Audit of Your Mainframe Applications?

    Kris Lall
    13 Jul 2015 | 11:35 am
    With the ratification of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3.1, passing PCI audits just became a little bit harder. But can you blame the PCI Security Council for updating the standard so quickly? With all of the recent breaches in the retail sector, an update was bound to be forthcoming. This won’t affect you, though, because all of your credit-card-processing applications are up to snuff and meet the requirements outlined in the PCI spec, right? What about those mainframe applications? Those work-horse applications that continue to run the global economy…
  • Major Retailer Implements Data Masking After a Security Breach—No Programming Required

    Kris Lall
    21 Apr 2015 | 7:30 am
    Data breaches continue to be the hot topic of enterprise conversations these days, but before you switch the dial due to data breach fatigue, please just hear me out. Recently, a large international retailer suffered an insider breach in which a contract employee stole customer credit card information from an IBM mainframe application simply by copying the data from the screen. That Personally Identifiable Information (PII) ended up on the black market, where it’s now worth quite a bit of money—thanks to the convenience and speed of the Internet. Due to this breach and an upcoming…

    Kris Lall
    24 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights started a little tradition back in 2009: When a data breach affecting more than 500 people occurs in the healthcare industry, they make a tally on their “wall of shame.” The folks over at the Office for Civil Rights were reaching for the chalk pretty frequently in 2014, and many of the breaches they tallied involved well over 500 people. Data Breach Today put together an infographic (included below) summarizing the four biggest healthcare breaches of the past year. None of the breaches stemmed from the same cause, but…

    It seems that not a week goes by where there isn’t some story in the news about a data breach. From major retailers to the U.S. Postal Service no organization, despite available safeguards, is immune. The most recent data breach currently making worldwide headlines involves a major entertainment company and a few of the news articles have included screenshots of a terminal emulation green screen with sensitive data in full display. In this instance, the company’s employee list was compromised, salaries of all of their employees were leaked and other confidential information including…

    This company messed up big time and made a mistake that could crucially hurt them.  After someone’s identity is hacked, they might turn to Lifelock—the ID theft-protection firm that claimed to be so secure CEO Todd Davis advertised his social security number on TV and billboards. A recent security breach, however; may sway their minds. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently filed a complaint in court that the company failed to follow through with a 2012 settlement that required them to “establish and maintain a comprehensive security program to protect sensitive personal data…
  • Know who else shares passwords? IT depatments

    David King
    29 Jul 2015 | 7:31 am
    Users get a lot of heat for poor password management, and it’s mostly justified. But a new survey from Centrify finds that IT can be just as guilty of sharing credentials, if not more so.  Centrify found that: 59% of IT managers shared passwords with other employees at least somewhat often, and 52% shared credentials with contractors at least somewhat often. This is bad news on its own, but it gets worse. While many IT pros surveyed said they’re able to revoke access to these accounts the day the contractor or employee leaves, almost half indicated that it could take a week or…

    Summary: In many organizations, end user reporting runs through a single department or individual. They must build and customize the reports for end users—many of which want their reports customized in different ways. The problem: These customizations waste time.

    If used to its fullest capacity, the application Microsoft Excel has the potential to help solve great problems with managing information. Yet, most high school and college students only know how to compute some basic functions or maybe create some tables in Excel. It seems that for many of these information-age members, it’s hard to  decipher and add value to the data that is constantly being generated. If this is the case, then why is there not a program to effectively teach students about Excel? Well, a Syracuse startup company is in the process of solving that problem.

With yet another concurrent year of staggering growth in Big Data, it’s safe to say, the myth that Big Data is just a Big Hype can be put to rest. In this year’s BARC study, findings show 83% of companies have already invested in Big Data or are considering to do so in the future, which is an almost 20% increase compared to Gartner’s 2013 results. Not only has Big Data become even bigger, but the focus has shifted, as well. In regard to Big Data, 2014…
