It has just been presented the annual report on the development of the information society 2010 eEspana, created by the Orange Foundation. As meaningful data, the report shows that the Spanish Internet users are big users of social networks. In particular, Spain is situated above the European average in this aspect, mainly with Internet users under the age of 40, still Facebook and Tuentu which agutinan the greatest number of users. According to data from the report, Tuenti users, more young people make more frequent than the Facebook use. In the section on peer to peer, which are used to share information between two or more users on the network, the report indicates that since these networks have fostered the exchange of subject to copyright files many criticisms have originated.
Data concerning this topic have SCADA of another study on the same matter prepared by the consulting firm NPD Group. In regional terms, Madrid is the best region on the so-called index convergence of the information society (ICSI), ahead of Catalonia, Aragon and Asturias. The crisis has re-opened the distances between less developed regions and the leader, the report says. Recent convergence posts are occupied by the Canary Islands, Extremadura, Castillas – La Mancha and Murcia. You can download the full report by clicking here. Should also be noted, that the majority of Spanish users are daily connect to Peer to Peer networks. Being a 36% statistic every day, 32 percent on weekends, 22% occasionally and 10% at specific times.
It is usually assumed that each user corporate network spends at least 80 working hours per year (10 working days, 2 weeks) on the self-study and on maintenance of the computer. But practice shows that this figure can easily increase a half to two times. Calculation of "indirect" costs of maintaining it infrastructure – a rather complicated thing. In order to take part tco methodology to take into account all of the above items, it is necessary to conduct a comprehensive audit of the enterprise information system. What should I look for in the first place? To audit the it infrastructure (detailed analysis) identifying with the bottlenecks (lack of reliability, availability or poor performance of certain components of the system, lack of backup, antivirus protection, corporate security systems information, etc.) Analyze all failures and delays that have occurred in the network for the selected period, focusing their attention to both the causes that led to the shutdown, and on actions to eliminate it. If the shutdown was planned (Routine maintenance, upgrade, etc.) – should determine whether the data reported in the pre-agreed plan, whether completed on time. If your organization has a centralized computer support services (Help Desk, or Service Desk) – to analyze the speed of the application for maintenance work and to find out the reasons for the delay in their execution. Generally speaking, the central office computer support should operate in international standards (ITIL and / or CobIT). Proper organization of such a service – key to high performance.
