The Case for Version Control in Enterprise Resilience Software

Posted by The Brain on Jan 9, 2018 6:46:49 AM

Somewhere between “Draft 2” and “Draft 73,” it can be easy to lose control over your all-important report. It can happen as a result of having many hands in the cookie jar: multiple edits, deletions, insertions or course-corrections.

Without a proper version control system in place, and the right tools to help you keep track of changes to a document, you’ll get lost in the Bermuda Triangle of document management, potentially spending more time trying to tell the documents apart than was spent to create the original in the first place.

Emergency Alerts Trend : Push vs Pull

Posted by The Brain on Aug 2, 2014 10:11:00 AM

Many people suffer from information overload, whether it be too many emails, calls, texts or social media messages. But in an emergency situation, too many alerts can have dire consequences.

There has been widespread adoption of notification systems for emergency notifications at a raft of different levels of government globally. There are sometimes agreed structures in place for who notifies which geographic region – based on incident, first responder status and so on. However, there is a growing sentiment that there are too many alerts, and  the combination of alerts which can occur when a major incident happens are causing people to turn off their messaging altogether.
