BCM Business continuity management BCM

Business continuity management (BCM) has become a hot topic in recent years and more significantly, in recent months (September 11, foot and mouth and flooding). However, BCM is not just about recovery from a disaster such one caused by fire or flood or the failure of IT systems. It can also be about the collapse of a key supplier or customer, about fraud, unethical operations and about reputation management. Recent surveys have shown that most companies still do not have business continuity plans and of those that have plans, many have never been tested or exercised. As a result, corporate governance, regulatory, insurance, audit and general business requirements are now emphasising the importance of robust risk management and BCM practices in every organisation. Today, it is vital that board members and senior executives understand the nature and scope of BCM. They need to be in a position to evaluate and enhance the status of the activity within their organizations. This briefing examines the nature of BCM and looks at its relationship with other activities such as risk management, insurance and the emergency services.

Abuse How to Win Every Argument: The Use and Abuse of Logic

How to Win Every Argument: The Use and Abuse of Logic.

In this witty and infectious book Madsen Pirie provides a complete guide to using - and indeed abusing - logic in order to win arguments. He identifies with devastating examples all the most common fallacies popularly used in argument. We all like to think of ourselves as clear-headed and logical - but all readers will find in this book fallacies of which they themselves are guilty.

The author shows you how to simultaneously strengthen your own thinking and identify the weaknesses in other people arguments. And, more mischievously, Pirie also shows how to be deliberately illogical - and get away with it. This book will make you maddeningly smart: your family, friends and opponents will all wish that you had never read it.

Publisher's warning: In the wrong hands this book is dangerous. We recommend that you arm yourself with it whilst keeping out of the hands of others. Only buy this book as a gift if you are sure that you can trust the recipient.

Microsoft Office 2010 Available For Private Clouds

Microsoft will let its business customers run Office Web off their own, internal servers.

Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) plans to give its corporate customers the option of hosting the company's new Web-based Office 2010 offering on their own servers in order to give them more control of the product.
"All Office volume licensing customers will have the right to Web apps to run themselves on-premises," said Chris Capossela, senior VP for Microsoft's Business unit, in an interview. "This is a really big distinction between Microsoft and our competition," said Capossela, in a reference to rival Google.

Google (NSDQ: GOOG)'s cloud-based Google Apps, which includes Office-style word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation tools, must be tapped from Google's own servers—a situation that makes some IT managers uneasy due to concerns about privacy and security.
"We really believe that for many customers they want the choice of being able to control things themselves," said Capossela. Microsoft will also give its corporate customers the option to access Office Web, as Microsoft is calling the Internet-based version of Office 2010, externally if they lack the infrastructure to run it in internally.

Access to Office Web, which includes versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote optimized for the cloud, is available to Microsoft's subscription customers at no additional charge to the client version. Consumers will be able to access Office Web entirely for free through Microsoft's Windows Live portal.

Office Web will be part of the Office 2010 general release, which is slated for the first half of next year.

Among the enhancements over previous editions are beefed up video and image processing tools that let users edit photos and videos from within their Office documents. New collaboration capabilities allow multiple users to access and edit a single document over the Web.

Microsoft on Monday released a technical preview of the product to selected developers. It plans to introduce a beta version later this year.
