Updates und Technical Debt

Well, here is the thing: It is 2017. Every system is somehow exposed to the Internet. Often that happens indirectly or unintentionally, but it always happens. There is no such thing as an isolated network any more, ever, anywhere.

Maybe you think there is, but that only means that you haven’t found the connection, yet. But everything, even those embedded systems, especially these embedded systems, need to somehow report stuff, be monitored, or otherwise connect to other systems to be useful.

System integration has become so tight that you simply cannot afford to have an isolated system. If you had one, you would be losing business opportunities that are more valuable than the cost of managing network security.

US Clouds

Den ct Artikel c’t empfiehlt: Raus aus den US-Clouds endlich zum Anlass genommen die eigene Domain mit der Familienanbindung weg von Google Apps zu nehmen.

Da ich grundsätzlich Google und Co deutlich mehr als deutschen Providern traue war der eigene Server ein Muss!

Zimbra auf einem Cloudserver in Deutschland installiert, getestet, DNS umgestellt. Für gut befunden!

Das Verwaltungsinterface und die CLI sind komplex. Was Anderes von einem solch mächtigen Paket zu erwarten, wäre aber auch schwierig.

Balance between solid and flow

Andere Sichtweise auf die „IT der zwei Geschwindigkeiten“:

The goal of digital organizational structure tuning is to strike the delicate balance between solid and flow: Compared to the traditional organization as the mechanical system keeps spinning, digital organizations today are more like the organic living system which keeps growing. Hence, it needs to be solid enough to “keep the lights on,” but also fluid enough to interact with the expanded digital ecosystem. This is the perception about the digital business, just solid enough to give some sort of form/meaning and open enough to its environment to allow movement (of people, ideas, and information) in and out.  Traditional hierarchical lines will phase out and a collective of business partners will emerge working collaboratively to set and achieve organizational goals as well as strategy.
