Let us work together to build the South Africa that Madiba dreamed about and worked for.”‘You made us who we are today’The Presidency shared the following selection of messages from the condolence books:“Our father may be gone but the ‘Madiba magic’ still lives on in our hearts.” (Mavis Sebothoma, Gauteng province)“A true leader who fought for liberty. The nation will forever love and cherish you.” (Sne, KwaZulu-Natal)“To our beloved Father of the Nation you made us for who we are today. You made us proud and taught us to stand for ourselves.

Enterprise Content Management (ECM): AIIM sees Major Disruption as Businesses Move Content to the Cloud

Enterprise Content Management (ECM): AIIM sees Major Disruption as Businesses Move Content to the Cloud

first_imgA recent report by AIIM finds the state of the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) industry under disruption and the technology will be dramatically different in a “post-ECM” era by 2020.  Much of the report focuses on the general move of enterprise content from on-premise systems to the cloud.Some of the findings of the report include:22 percent of businesses are using the cloud to manage content25 percent use a hybrid combination of cloud and on-premise tools to manage content80 percent of businesses say that they have no problem storing non-sensitive content in the cloud36 percent of businesses say that the cloud is safe enough to store sensitive dataThe report also found that organizations continue to use a variety of disparate systems when managing content.  More than half of organizations say that they’re using three or more ECM/DM/RM systems and nearly a quarter have five or more such systems.Another interesting finding is that 85 percent of organizations said that mobile document creation, workflow and edit features are all capabilities that would be useful, less than a quarter of organizations have implemented such capability.AIIM president John Mancini, said that “there is no doubt that organisations still require their content to be managed properly, but the term ‘ECM’ is past its prime as a description of the revolution that is being driven by mobile, analytics, cloud and collaborative technologies.  Organizations are desperate for best practices to deal with the technology disruption that is occurring… All of this data points to an industry in transition. There are still many organizations that can benefit from more traditional ECM solutions that automate document-intensive processes. But there is also an explosion of content outside the realm of these kinds of structured processes, along with a revolution occurring in how, where, and when knowledge workers do their jobs. Even among the current users of ECM technologies, 52% believe that within five years, ECM systems will be an undifferentiated part of the IT infrastructure.”last_img read more

You are approaching Turkish airspace. Change your heading south immediately. Most of the audio is garbled and barely comprehensible but the tone of the voice gets more agitated as the warnings appear to go unnoticed.

Russia said yesterday it will deploy long-range air defense missiles to its base in Syria and destroy any target that may threaten its warplanes.One of the Russian pilots was killed by militants in Syria after ejecting from the plane, while his crewmate was rescued by Syrian army commandos.A Russian marine was also killed by the militants during the rescue mission.Speaking in televised comments from the Russian base in Syria, the surviving navigator of the downed plane, Capt Konstantin Murakhtin, maintained the plane did not enter the Turkish airspace “even for a single second.”last_img read more

Crystal 0280 released with improved language ranges library lookup and more

Crystal 0280 released with improved language ranges library lookup and more

first_imgYesterday, the team at Crystal released Crystal 0.28.0, a new version of the general-purpose, object-oriented programming language. This release comes with improvements to language, library, networking and much more. What’s new in Crystal 0.28.0 Enums Enums are declared with one line per each member. In the previous versions, users could use spaces or commas, but in this version, users have to use a semicolon. The formatter will now migrate commas to a semicolon. Improved ranges Sometimes users don’t know where to start or finish, from this release users can now understand it better with the help of ranges as they have been categorized as begin-less and end-less ranges. Library lookup The team at Crystal has worked towards simplifying how some libraries and static libraries are looked up and therefore can be overridden in case it is needed. In this release, an env var CRYSTAL_LIBRARY_PATH is used in the process of determining the location of libraries to link to. Numbers now in human readable format In this release, numbers can now be printed in a human-readable form with the help of Number#humanize, Int#humanize_bytes and Number#format. Networking The team has improved HTTP and URI and have made it easy for users to migrate to the new setup. Issues in the URI implementation have been fixed. Collections The team has dropped Iterator#rewind. Users can implement #cycle by storing elements in an array. Bug fixes The issues in the compiler have now been fixed and even the errors in some code constructs have been handled. Issues related to method lookup have been fixed. Type inference has been improved. The team has worked on the error messages, they have been improved. To know more about this news, check out Crystal’s post.
