Inside the CERT Oracle Secure Coding Standard for Java

In this session, the authors of The CERT Oracle Secure Coding Standard for Java describe how this standard can be used to secure your Java projects.
Dean Lackey's insight:

I know @dlitchfield has been outspoken on Oracle's coding practices, and how Microsoft and others have adopted a more stringent development practice. Hopefully some of these practices will catch on for more than just Java and Oracle will bolster their coding practices across the board including their flagship Database platform.

Technology As If People Mattered via @dylanr @oreilly

From the 2015 Velocity Conference in New York: Technology only matters insofar as it helps people to be more effective.

As technologists, we seem to be focusing so much on the power of the technology and the abilities that these tools have imparted on us, that we seem to have forgotten why we’re here.
- Listening and valuing non-technical people – swinging the pendulum back
- Why it’s your job as a technologist to learn the business and the problems
- Why your technical solutions should start with existing business processes
- Appropriate technology – the power of simple tools and simple technology to solve problems simply
- Evolutionary technology – how and why to build levels of complexity, and why and when to evolve to the next level of complexity

We have so much power to change the world for the better, but we cannot do it with tech alone. Let’s focus on building technical solutions born of balanced context.

Amazing 10 min video (7min at 1.5x!), should be required listen to all IT and technology folks I work it - and repeated monthly so we don't forget.


In a nutshell it presents the argument that you should always use as little technology to solve a problem, even if the technology is sub-optimal. Listen, and I hope you'll agree.


WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

With 2-speed IT, the need for business agility often comes from getting just the right technology to do their job. IT often wants to put in the best technology possible.

The truth about social media marketing for lead generation

The truth about social media marketing for lead generation | Oracle | Scoop.it

Lead generation might be a top goal for B2B marketers in 2015, but social media isn’t where they’re expecting to bring in qualified prospects, according to a new BrightTalk report.

 

In fact, social media and print advertising ranked the lowest on a list of 15 different lead generation tactics. A full 30 percent said these are ineffective lead gen tools and just 12 percent said they’re highly successful. On the contrary, email marketing was cited as the top tool, with 55 respondents saying it’s effective.

 

In an era when 7 out of 10 people utilize social media (and the average social media user is active 2 hours and 25 minutes daily), this is unsettling data. Marketers who consider social media ineffective for lead gen need to reconsider their current strategies and revamp what they’re doing to both promote the brand and nurture people to take the next step to learn more....

Matt Lambert's curator insight, August 14, 2015 5:03 AM

The data is interesting, but "B2B" doesn't make much sense as a single entity from a lead generation point of view. Depending on whether the products and services are horizontal or vertical markets, direct or channel, the strategies and tools are different.

 

Which audience are we talking about, the ones that find you, or the one's you go out and find. They have completely different characteristics.

 

The figures above are presumably averages of the two approaches.

 

Then, both Social and Email marketing can be lead gen tools, but more often used for nurturing, a second stage process.


So, average of different strategies, and an average of different stages.

 

Is it not like saying "the players in my football team averaged 4 goals each last season". This wouldn't tell us what our striker is worth would it?

Adele Taylor's curator insight, August 16, 2015 5:39 PM

So is social media marketing the way of the future?  Interesting read...

Thorsten Strauss's curator insight, September 24, 2015 7:43 AM

insight: b2b marketing , lead generation, social media still ranking not on top. Or are the  effects just indirect? That is the key question.
