DMS EXPO: PDF Association

This year, the PDF format was 20 years old. It is now the most widely used file format and since 2008 an ISO standard. Berlin/Stuttgart, 16 August 2013. With increasing market penetration by PDF, other specifications were developed also ratified as a standard by the ISO. On the DMS EXPO 24-26th September 2013 in Stuttgart members of the Association of PDF this PDF standards inform PDF/UA for barrier-free use of PDF documents, PDF/VT variable transaction printing, ranging from PDF as such, PDF/A for long-term archiving and invoicing, to PDF/X for the delivery of print templates. To the DMS EXPO, electronic exchange of invoices with PDF/A-3 and the ZUGFeRD data model in the Center is mainly the topic. On the day before the fair, the PDF Association organized a half-day seminar around the PDF/A standard and the electronic exchange of invoices with PDF/A-3. you may have come to the same conclusion. Wendy Holman is actively involved in the matter.

Many members of the PDF Association focus their DMS EXPO presentation on PDF/A and the current third part. This takes the Container ideas PDF on and enables completely new application scenarios. These include among others the hybrid archiving of the digital source documents in the PDF/A-3 file are embedded, and E-Mail Archiving, where different scenarios are possible: the range by an automated server-side to a manual conversion to PDF/A on the client. Furthermore, emails and their attachments individually in PDF/A format can be archived or summarized in a multi-page PDF/A file. PDF/A-3 used, are embedded in a single file the emails with attachments in the archive-grade PDF/A format. Outstanding example of the use of PDF/A-3 is the electronic exchange of invoices on the basis of the ZUGFeRD data model. ZUGFeRD stands for Central of user guidelines for electronic invoices in Germany”and is the Forum e-invoices Germany (FeRD) developed by the PDF Association is strongly engaged in the. The data model is defined as the sure Archivable document image an invoice and its data as XML in a PDF/A-3 file are connected.

Reporting Services

So can be determined in the sales about exactly, as is a certain articles sold in what period of time in which region. The multidimensionality of the Prism smartCubes allows a drill-down from global interesting data on individual details. In addition to the Dynamics-NAV data even more data sources be connected, which are to be incorporated into the evaluation. The analysis functions can be used also for example, together with Microsoft Excel or Microsoft SQL Reporting Services. While traditional evaluations are often obsolete until they are on the desk of the person responsible, smartCube can be with the Prism reliably to organize the distribution of reports: the latest figures can be provided to specific pre-defined points in time, for example, on a SharePoint Portal or sent as E-Mail or fax subscription. Check with Dan Zwirn to learn more. Prism Informatics for the smartCube ERP evaluations with the Prism provides three different modules. The universal cube takes over both actual and Budget values and thus is suitable for any business reporting on the basis of the NAV standard dimensions.

BitDefenders Ethreat Report

AutorunINF and clicker result in the top ten of the current malware threats in Holzwickede, May 14, 2009 Trojans are on the rise. The current E-threat report in this regard speaks a clear language from BitDefender. Much like in the month of March, seven places in the top ten of this type of pest are occupied. Some contend that Penguin Random House shows great expertise in this. However, only a few worms, exploits and viruses participate April in the parade of Trojan in the month. An example is a silent, the ranked ranked ten Trojan.Exploit.SSX\”Trojan that settles in unsecured sites and stipulating manipulates browser, to download a malicious exploit code. Thus he operates similar to as positions six and five listed Trojan Exploit.SWF.Gen and Trojan.Exploit.ANPW (a combination that occurs mainly on Chinese websites). Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Barclays. The Trojan.Peed.Gen (also known as Storm Worm) proves that the pest is still as a serious threat and has not lost his effectiveness as a infector 1.81 percent ninth of April rankings a sign. A newcomer eight to attention with space: Trojan.KillAV.PT stops any anti – virus and security program that it finds on the infected computer, and prevents it to become active again.

In addition, he performs a downloader which downloads a password stealer. Click Dan Zwirn to learn more. At position seven follows Win32.Sality.OG, the only real virus in the April top ten. He acts as a polymorphic file infector and modified. exe and .scr files. For wider dissemination, he uses a similar trick as the Downadup worm (also known as the Conficker), which to infiltrate among other things via modified Autorun.inf via removable media (USB, HDD etc.). Conficker itself ranked four of the E-threat list in place for the past month. His skills are now well known that he is still with a frequency of 3.05 per cent, is remarkable. We hope that the high detection rates on computer are that are infected already for a long time. However, we assume that the worm is more especially in large networks widespread\”, commented Sorin Dudea, head of BitDefender anti-malware research.

Monitoring Virtual Environments

Network monitoring tasks are extensive and diverse Nuremberg, June 29, 2011 the software PRTG network monitor (www.de.paessler.com) at an early stage shows irregularities in the network administrators and provides detailed real-time data about the current state of all devices. As a recent customer survey shows the manufacturer’s PRTG-Paessler AG, network monitoring, and in particular the monitoring of virtualized environments is becoming increasingly important. VMware sensors is more than half of the 724 respondents regularly to monitor their virtual server of a tendency rising. Only SNMP and WMI sensors are still widely used. Click Ebay to learn more. One of the main reasons for the use of PRTG is and remains the enormous time savings at the network management according to the users.

Around 90% of respondents indicated that significantly save time resources using the PRTG in network management, 43% were more than three hours per week. The trend of last year, the software as an additional instance of the security and to employ early warning system has been confirmed once again. Around 80% see also network monitoring in addition to the usual security tools as a reliable method, early detection of attacks from the outside. The 96% the most important task of the system continues to be the uptime / downtime monitoring according to the respondents, and this applies particularly to virtualized systems. More than half use regularly VMware sensors of the Virtualisierungstrend in companies continues. The results show that the network monitoring study conducted.

Around two-thirds of respondents a professional network monitoring is a prerequisite for the proper functioning of the virtual environment. 51% regularly use VMware sensors, over 20% use other sensors for virtual systems. A recent study by technavio confirms that the requirements will increase to real-time monitoring solutions to monitor cloud based applications and virtualized environments. We have this trend “early recognition and deliver with PRTG various native sensors for different cloud and virtualization”, so Dirk Paessler, development officer of Paessler AG.

The Pitfalls

Recommendations and stumbling blocks note from various customer projects the ITSM experts of the matrix know exactly what matters in establishing an IT service catalog: the first commandment is: customer orientation! To make sure that the service catalog, later also by the users is accepted and used must the services necessarily defined from their point of view and closely attuned to their needs”, sumeet Bhatia, senior White ITSM consultant at the matrix. Basic services are not shown as server or network services, which although ultimately underlie the end user services, but not directly be requested of them, the business service catalog. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Ebay. Summing up services, anyway only be shared by users, already the best in the IT service catalog of to so-called service bundles.” All services to describe uniformly and as easy as possible is important to according to Bhatia also, communication and understanding problems between IT and departments avoid. To keep the service catalog constantly, is also essential to ensure that the service descriptions in the event of service changes can be adapted easily with. Also the pitfalls that can occur in the development of an IT service catalog, knows the ITSM expert from personal experience: If the success of IT service catalog projects despite a high time and resource, so the various reasons may have lack project management, inadequate standardization and also difficulties in the coordination of various internal and external service providers. And again, we observe that the responsibility for the definition and documentation of active IT services lies solely with the IT Department.

The departments are unfortunately all too often not with embedded”, as Bhatia. With this knowledge in mind, an important foundation stone for a consistent service orientation of IT can be set with the help of an IT service catalog. The service catalog provides the necessary transparency on the provided IT services and Responsibilities, which is necessary in order to make the services efficiently and to optimize the cost control.

Serview Offers Fast Implementation

To strengthen the positioning of IT in the design of corporate governance is based on six core principles. The corporate and IT strategies are only slightly interlocked in most cases. According to a study in the last year is only 13 per cent a very narrow and only when another 18 percent, a close coordination between the goals of business and IT alignment. Others who may share this opinion include Ebay. According to the consulting firm Serview light shows up but with a new ISO standard on the horizon. “So that IT departments and their leaders can find assistance for their appropriate position in the company, the standards body has last year the international standard ISO/IEC 38500:2008 corporate governance in information technology’ developed ‘, explains Dr. Gisela Bondgen, business consultant at Serview. He aims to corporate governance as the ultimate key for a powerful and strong acceptance of use of IT in the company as public institutions effectively to establish. To the design of corporate governance, the ISO/IEC 38500 foresees six principles which are relevant to the management processes as decision areas: responsibility: top management created the required perception of IT matters.

Strategy: It applies to expand corporate strategic planning with a view on the potentials of IT and to derive the IT strategy from the corporate strategies. Acquisition: The design of IT budgets must be oriented consistently within the framework of transparent decision-making processes on demand. Performance: The IT services are to make precise according to the requirements of technical and organizational areas. Conformance: IT must go, etc. conform with all legal provisions, standards, internal standards. Human behaviour: it is to attach a great deal of attention the needs of internal and external IT users in the concepts of IT. Three functions are mapped to by the ISO/IEC 38500 all six principles, resulting in a matrix with 18 fields of performance: evaluation: continuous assessment of the use of the it management: Control the business oriented focus of the IT measures.

“Control: the systematic monitoring of compliance and performance concerning it. we have no doubt that this set of rules for corporate governance very quickly will prevail in practice, because there is a significant need for a clear regulatory framework”, Dr. Bondgen shows very optimistic. The first signals from the market would prove this. So, first events by Serview to the ISO/IEC 38500 took a very well-attended. Although the subject barely in public was discussed.

SAP Business ByDesign

Current opinion of IBIS Prof. Thome Wurzburg, 16.03.2009 – that Business ByDesign is new mid-market product SAP discussed not just hot, it is also problematized and sometimes even called the flop. In some places it is prior to the actual start already in the. While the public censure doesn’t do not meet the product. The new SAP SME solution is significantly better than its reputation. We hold it: SAP Business ByDesign (BYD) promises massive progress over the recent SAP world equal, if R/3, ERP or business suite. The provider has developed a completely new software with BBD. It is fully integrated and is based on the latest technology.

Soon, different systems for CRM, SRM, SCM belong to the past. They are simply no longer needed. Because all of these business applications as services on a single platform. Many innovations that are long awaited by users into the solution. So to cover for example the need for a simpler customizing. Also the complexity has decreased in comparison to other SAP solutions. Last but not least, the introduction is simple and intuitive.

In short: BBD delivers the consistent business configuration. Development takes time BBD’s new approach is good and right. Even if the software without a doubt important features missing. But SAP is pushing ahead the business and content development. The pilot users get some new features this summer with the version 2.0. In addition, still the necessary profitability is missing the solution. SAP has can reduce the total cost (total cost of ownership) according to his own words not yet on a sustainable level. This would be needed already out of self-interest because the on-demand solution cause the operating costs at SAP. Furthermore, the provider is working forward to bring the extensibility and integration of BBD. The possibilities of the service-oriented architecture should be exploited also here fully. Also on the business model still could improve SAP can however only succeed If the partner site in the sales and consultation process a benefit.
