Secure Messaging: How Safe Are Your Business Secrets?
Companies have come to rely on e-mail as an everyday communication tool, but too many leave their business secrets vulnerable to prying eyes and the whims of disgruntled employees. While there's no guarantee that the use of encryption and authentication will completely safeguard a business' e-mail system, secure messaging systems, server and groupware packages offer some protection. Bruno compares and contrasts the options available. [more]

Using Collaboration to Advance High Technology Initiatives

What would happen if a dozen independent, successful, competing corporations aligned themselves to leverage the strengths of each in order to enhance and strengthen each individual corporation? What would happen if they organized teams of experts from each of their corporations to address common concerns, build on areas of expertise, and identify short and long term goals for enhancing the ability of the individual corporations to better serve their primary customer base? Doubtless such pre-competitive cooperation would result in advances for each entity, as the group built upon the strengths and successes of the individuals.

SFA Systems: Managing the Behavior and Cultural Changes

Companies have continued to miss the mark in their quest for successful sales force automation (SFA) implementations. Industry statistics put successful SFA implementations at less than 30 percent. The reason: companies and system integrators overlook the most critical success factor -- the user.

Four Steps to More Effective Network Services

As the 20th century ends, most organizations find themselves involved, one way or another, in upgrading or extensively revising their computer networks. Chances are, this trend will continue for at least the first decade of the coming century. This will be a time of tremendous opportunity for creating networked applications that can save or make organizations millions of dollars. It will also be a time of turmoil, in which firms can easily mismanage their networks and waste much more of their network budgets than they could have expected.

Dynamically Reconfigurable Servers

With the advent of the Web, it is more important than ever to have systems that run continuously. It is always business hours somewhere in the world; there is no good time to bring down servers for maintenance. Over the life of the server, it may be necessary to import new data and code. ... It is relatively easy to implement servers that can import new modules and data at run time. This dynamically reconfigurable server is implemented in Python, a portable, interpreted, extensible object-oriented programming language.

Beware of the Slashdot Effect

The Slashdot Effect. It's not a new disaster film, although for some system administrators it is causing a few sleepless nights. And if your Web server just keeled over, or you cannot work out why your site recorded more traffic in an hour than it usually does in a year, chances are you have already experienced it.

Stacking the Deck For E-Commerce

Don't get me wrong, although I am getting relatively addicted to shopping online, that doesn't mean I want my neighborhood turned into a graveyard of boarded-up stores. That's the risk we take if we let the Internet honchos with self-serving agendas set the tone for e-commerce in this country.

Larry Wall: Divine Invention

Larry Wall, a linguist and self-effacing polymath, is the creator of the popular and ubiquitous Perl programming language. (Perl stands for "Practical Extraction and Report Language" or, if Wall is in the mood, "Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister.") Created over ten years ago with contributions and critiques of volunteer hackers, Perl is widely considered the "duct-tape" that holds the Internet together.

The Rules of Typography: Part VIII
Increase line spacing to improve readability in body text: Line spacing, also called "leading" because printers used to insert thin strips of lead between lines of type to add space, is very important not only for readability but also for appearance.

Privacy - The Internet and Beyond

Citizens of the Internet in the United States and Canada are growing impatient with the lack of secure environments. Surveys show that, in the U.S. in particular, users want government intervention to ensure security and confidentiality on the Net. In Canada, the frustration is being assuaged as the federal government has brought in Bill C-54, which will enact a set of rules for the protection of personal information in the private sector, as well as facilitate the legal environment for the use of digital signatures. The importance of the privacy aspects of this bill is it extends these rights not just to cyberspace but to all records, no matter their form.

Private Solutions for Public Commerce

Transacting business over the Internet is barely under way in state and local government, but already a number of private-sector services are cropping up that offer "end-to-end" solutions. Most of these privatization efforts have been concentrated in the business-to-business field of electronic commerce.

* IVB: The Internet Valley Benchmark (IVB) compares a company's zone of Web influence to that of its peers and across industries through the use of a standard value. The set level for the IVB is the current zone of Web influence for Internet Valley. Why Internet Valley Benchmark ?

Internet Valley was founded and coined the term Web Influence in 1995.
IV became the first company to provide the online community with full-scale Web Influence related services.
In May 1996, Internet Valley published the first Web Influence list, rating the Top 100 Online Computer Magazines. Since that time, Internet Valley has continued to develop the hyperlink mechanics-based methods and technology to monitor and evaluate the current level of Web Influence. The basic subjects of this research have been the fastest growing sectors of iBusiness. All this time, Internet Valley has provided to the leading members of the Internet community reliable data, trends and statistics.

Leading members of the IT community voiced their opinions regarding Internet Valley's 3-year effort to research Web Influence trends:
    - Matthew Rothenberg, director of online content at MacWeek.Com, joint venture of ZDNet and IDG, "We are thrilled by the results of the study..." January 5, 1999
    - IBM e-commerce director Scott Gannon: "I think your research is really proven right on.  I think you're focused on the right thing..." January 28, 1999
