  • 2.) I feel that AR will both make day-to-day life easier and make life more problematic. I feel that AR will not be anywhere near as accurate as it will need to be to be relied on by its users and that it will cause more issues than it is actually worth. I feel that if implemented properly and if programmed properly, AR could in fact change the…[Read more]

  • Do you think big data is being used to it’s fullest potential in the sports world?
    -I feel that big data is not being utilized to its fullest potential within the sports world. I believe that we have only “scratched the surface” in data usage when its comes to sports. Although I do not have ways in which we can better use the data, I feel that t…[Read more]

  • A new type of hacking is beginning to show its head in one market that may not be expected; automobiles. Hackers are beginning to engineer methods in which to manipulate automobiles in multiple ways. Some of […]

    • Yes I feel as it is being taken into consideration, but i do not believe that it is being taken seriously. Can you imagine the potential outcomes of someone hacking into your car while it is driving? The results could be fatal. It is a new technology, so these things are going to happen in the early stages. I hope that security for these cars are high once more begin to hit the market. This does not make me think about the brand of the next car that I will purchase. I enjoy driving and have no interest in a self driving car, especially with the security risks.

    • I don’t feel as though it is being considered seriously because the technology is still in its infancy and is not as pervasive. Currently TESLA is the only car manufacturer that has autonomous vehicles on the road, and it has strict no liability clauses in its contracts. As part of IoT, autonomous cars are susceptible to cyber security threats. More so than data privacy with smart/self-driving cars, I believe the security threat of a hacker gaining control of driving capabilities is a bigger physical threat. This threat does not make me think about which brand/model/year of automobile to get because the option to have a car drive itself, is exactly that, an option. Drivers can choose to drive themselves. That said, car manufacturers like Tesla send out automatic software updates, and this is something that is of particular concern if compromised.

    • I feel that hacking is being considered now by car manufacturers now that they have seen what hackers have been able to do. Especially since it’s been leaked that the government had a back-door to do these things for awhile now. It’s a big problem for them, because it’s not about someone’s personal information data (although we connect our phones to our cars and hackers can probably use the car as a middle-man, it’s not the biggest issue right now.) It’s about someone’s life, hackers could cut the power to your car on the highway and bam, no power steering, no electronic brakes, etc.
      No it doesn’t think about my next car purchase as I don’t plan on buying a new car anytime soon. I’ll stick with the 90’s and early 00’s.

    • I find this topic very interesting and we also did our last case study on a similar topic, so I have done a little bit of research into this. At the moment, I think that hacking is definitely being taken into consideration when creating smart cars. But I also believe that there is a lot more that needs to be learned and applied when it comes to the security of these cars. For example, autonomous vehicles are a new technology that is still being researched and developed. I think that although the technology is there, the security aspect is not perfect.
      I don’t think that this really has an impact on my next car buying decision.

  • Cloudbleed is one of the newest reasons to be cautious of cloud services and their security. Google’s Project Zero member Tavis Ormandy, found this security flaw and coined the name “Cloudbleed” after the 2014 […]

    • After heartbleed I changed my passwords for sites that were listed as affected by heartbleed. As for cloudbleed, I’ll keep an on it and see if anything important I use pops up and change my password. So, it doesn’t really make me think twice because most of these sites are useful or needed in some way. I don’t think about a companies IT infrastructure when I determine if I’m going to use their site, but I often think about it for fun when a website does something interesting, like when Cloudflare started becoming more popular I wondered how it worked.
      I think it should make other companies think about their cloud security, really every company should be thinking about it. In four years we’ve had heartbleed and cloudbleed, so there’s bound to be another big breach in the next 4/5 years. They need to get ahead of it.

    • After reading this article, most defiantly i will be evaluating with which businesses i’ll be using and how secure they might say they intend to be. I don’t necessarily research what the business IT infrastructure before doing business with them because that’s out of my control. As long as all the features are aligned with my needs, i should believe the company will be good enough. After this incident, companies should defiantly reconsider all the different companies cloud services are safe enough for them to do business with so that this will not reoccur.

    • 1. I want to say yes, but honestly it doesn’t for me. An example not mentioned is do you feel less secure purchasing from a retailer that still has you swipe your card as opposed to having chip reading technology.
      2. I feel companies will want to gain extra comfort and assurance, but I still feel companies will utilize cloud technology as its the most efficient solution for the future.

  • For question two I believe that since Snapchat so large, it would be in their best interest to look into having its own infrastructure. With that being said, that completely depends on how big of an IT group they have and if they have the personnel (or capital) to afford owning their own infrastructure.

  • For Kevin’s first question, I would say that due to constantly agreeing to terms and conditions of software, applications, and more, this data feels like it is no longer even our property to use. I feel that if you accept that nothing is private and anything can be publicized, then it is much easier to store these pieces of data with these cloud…[Read more]

  • On January 26th, 2009, Pfizer, a multi-billion dollar company agreed to buy out Wyeth for $68 billion. Pfizer, a company known for its large dividends, upset investors by slashing their dividends 16 cents per […]

    • While Pfizer’s strict IT governance and reporting structure could have a positive influence on Wyeth’s global IT architecture initiative, I can’t see Wyeth’s progress being scrapped. Wyeth was able to establish a sense of unity among its decentralized subsidiaries, so enforcing a new initiative could have negative implications with these relationships. I believe now more than ever, there be a growing level of importance for centralization between Pfizer, Wyeth and all subsidiaries. This growing level of importance will certainly be in Wyeth’s best interest for reaching its global market.

  • To answer Kevin’s first question, I do think companies will be interested in hybrid ERP systems but not too many may make the switch anytime soon. Most larger companies seem to be stagnant and have a hard time being agile and adapting to modern issues and implementing modern technology. I feel that most established companies have too much legacy…[Read more]

    Steve Jobs’s presentation is very fundamental and hits the key points in which we have learned in Business Communications. He keeps his slides interesting and very basic, making sure to further explain the slide without putting all the information in which he is trying to convey on the slide. He also makes sure to open and recap different…[Read more]

    We met with the BAs for one last time and they are nearly done. As for us, we have finished all paperwork and are ready for the final turn in. I will attend the BAs presentation on Thursday as neither Tom nor Leor are able to make it. I am very proud of them as they have worked extremely hard on the project and their prototype looks very professional.

    This week we continued to review our documentation and speak with the BAs about their prototypes. This week was fairly light as we were preoccupied on the test Thursday. This upcoming week we will begin to push for further prototyping along with more documentation as we have our documentation reviewed by Prof. Messina.
