A software audit can be either an internal process, executed by an in-house team or consultants, or it can be done externally, by the vendor. If done internally, the results are used by the organization to check what software is installed across the network, how the software is being used and how this usage compares with the entitlements owned by the organization. If you haven’t already been audited—get ready; it’s not a case of if, but when.
Databases are the primary target of cyber criminals and disgruntled insiders. Traditional perimeter, network security, and built-in database security measures, offer limited protection when it comes to securing the organization’s most sensitive data.

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies.
Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology.
But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business.
A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.

Graph databases are changing how we use data. But first, an example – you're (probably) a human working on a project and looking at graph databases as a potential solution. While we're a company that has a graph database that hopefully solves your problem. Now we could store that data in a boring relational database, but how do we do more than that? For instance, using that data, when combined with other data points, to find other people like you and recommend our solution to them? This is where a graph can come in handy.
The friendly graph data model makes it easy to use patterns of relationships within large data sets. By leveraging those relationships we can analyze, or create better real-time experiences. Why Graph explores why this graph database 'thing' is really a thing, how they compare to other database systems, and the use cases they best support.

Shell Lubricants technical experts suggested that the company implement a field trial to compare the fuel economy benefits of Shell Rimula R4 L 15W-40 to Shell Rimula R5 LE 10W-30. Six Volvo trucks running more or less the same duties were selected for the trial, which took place over a period of six months. Three trucks started with Shell Rimula R4 L 15W-40, the other three with Shell Rimula R5 LE 10W-30. After 3 months, this was switched to prevent any possible truck-specific deficiencies. Throughout the trial, fuel consumption was closely monitored by Volvo Fleet management on-board computers.
