Uno de los puntos estrella de la nueva reforma de la administración publica es el desarrollo de la administración electronica. Hasta aqui todo muy bien pero habrá que ver quien será el responsable de su implantación. ¿Será PWC y iecisa?
PWC, esa consultora conocida por ser de las top 4 y una consultora implicada en varios escandalos empresariales (quien se olvida de enron etc.), uno de los ultimos es el caso de la implantación de SAP en naciones unidas (el proyecto umoja) donde hay fuertes rumores de como PWC consiguió hace años la adjudicación de parte del proyecto… pues lo mismo pasa con la futura administración electronica en España,

PWC lleva años intentando meterse en ese area y varias personas dudan de la falta de neutralidad y de la posición que tiene PWC en el sector publico al llevar las cuentas de muchas autonomias y organismos publicos por lo que algunos dudan si no tendra información privilegiada…iecisa por sus relaciones tiene tambien fuerte probabilidad de ser una de las futuras ganadoras de la implantación de la admin electronica…

Por cierto, el gobierno deberia decir quien esta por detras del aesoramiento a la nueva reforma de las administraciones y si PWC no ha sido uno de los asesores, yo diria que si…el discurso suena mucho a PWC…

a esperar y a ver…

ultimamente algunas empresas están creando plataformas sociales, como por ejemplo en la industria farmaceutica donde se empieza a usar social media pero hay que tener cuidado pues algunos ejemplos como pharma talents creada inicialmente por el CEO de Roche.

Pero hay que tener cuidado con lo que hacen con tus datos estas redes sociales y cual es su objetivo real pues por ejemplo pharmatalents no tiene publicado su politica de privacidad en la pagina y nadie te indica que hace esta red con tus datos, con tu comportamiento en la red social etc.
Los usuarios deben siempre verificar que politica de privacidad tienen las redes sociales pues de contrario podran tener sorpresas muy grandes! y las empresas que crean estas redes debería comportarse de forma mas transparente, yo incluso tengo dudas si la LOPD no les obliga a publicar y tener de forma visible su politica de privacidad pues en el caso de pharmatalents al menos de forma visible no esta…. http://www.pharmatalents.es/index.php

The horse meat scandal in Europe is showing there is a large-scale fraud and the need to develop traceability rules processed food. But it is not enough just to implement traceability technologies. They are only as accurate as the information put into the system.

These kind of attitudes and behaviours from the food industry are the ones that really show that companies really understand and implement corporate social responsibility (CSR): “CSR policy functions as a built-in, self-regulating mechanism whereby a business monitors and ensures its active compliance within the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and international norms. CSR is a process with the aim to embrace responsibility for the company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere who may also be considered as stakeholders.” (source Wikipedia)

Cuando Oracle anunció que compraba Java, mucho se discutió de las razones de esta compra, ahora ya lo sabemos: para mostrar las vulnerabilidades de Oracle, principalmente a nivel de seguridad.
Los problemas de seguridad de Java lo que están creando es una impresión de que la seguridad de Oracle, antes su bastión parece que no es tal y que por más que Oracle haga parches y mejorías, cada nueva actualización es peor que la anterior.
Oracle tiene un problema gordo con Java pues además de estar dañando su reputación y imagen, aparentemente parece ser que la solución pasa por hacer una enorme inversión en las mejorías de java para solucionar sus problemas, la cuestión es saber en que beneficiará a Oracle y a sus inversores y clientes…

ERP training best practices

Written on January 26, 2013 by José Esteves in Executive Master en Sistemas de Información

Based on a survey to more than 150 users we’ve identified the eRP training best practices that shall be managed in any ERP project.

Our Latest research shows that ERP training best practices can be categorized in six dimensions: managerial training practices, training methods, training planning, training alignment, training technology, and trainers. Also it’s important to understand the view of the different ERP stakeholders because they have different interests related to the training process.

Furthermore, training practices don’t depend of the type of ERP system, but they depend on the company’s size and location. Also it’s important to focus on informal training.

Apple for fast fashion

Written on January 16, 2013 by José Esteves in Executive Master en Sistemas de Información

Los ultimos rumores del CES sobre la empresa de la manzana es que planea lanzar una nueva version de sus tabletas para marzo, actualizar la pantalla del mini con retina y crear una nueva version del ipad. Todo esto viene despues de las recientes caidas en bolsa de Apple en bolsa por los resultados de la venta del iphone5, que aunque apple seguramente va a tener uns resultados espectaculares, estos no contentan a los mercados. Y ese es otro probelma de Apple, en los ultimos años Apple ha empezado a jugar a los mercados y a la bolsa, y aqui estos son crueles con estimativas y resultados a corto plazo. Apple siempre se ha categorizado pro ser una empresa que tenia una cultura muy propria alejandose de estar continuamente lanzando productos, preferiendo apostar por solo lanzar productos con actualizaciones que poartasen valro significativo a sus clientes, pero en los ultimos años Apple parece casi querer imitar el modelo fast fashion de Zara (una nueva coleccion cada dos semanas) para agradar a los mercados y a los inversores avidos de numeros y resultados

Journal of Knowledge Management, January 2013

Abstract:

Purpose – Analyze the underlying characteristics that enable the acquisition and appropriation of external knowledge, paying special attention to the relationship between external and internal networks to support this process.

Design/methodology/approach – We have followed a case study methodology, using not only semi-structured interviews but also secondary data to triangulate the obtained information. For the interviews, we have considered not only employees in different strategic positions, from middle management to top management, but also participants in the main supplier to obtain a holistic perspective of the knowledge acquisition and appropriation in the innovation process.

Findings – For the improvements of the process of knowledge acquisition and appropriation, organizations should configure internal and external networks to support this process reorganizing their classical structures. Moreover, this process is enhanced by the support of top managers and innovation champions, which act as sponsors and facilitators of the project respectively, to ensure that the whole process runs smoothly. At the end, to deal with new kinds of projects that are completely different to previous ones, it is recommended to be open to new ways of organizing and structuring participants; hence, coordination and socialization mechanisms are important to reach not only potential absorptive capacity (associated with knowledge acquisition) but also realized absorptive capacity (associated with knowledge exploitation). This situation is even more relevant in Web 2.0 environments, where each participant has autonomy to participate actively, be just a passive participant, or ceases to belong the community.

Practical implications – Our findings could be useful to identify the determinants of knowledge acquisition and appropriation because they could guide organizations in the development of external and internal networks to support this process, which would be used to promote innovation within the organization; and with this identification, organizations could take actions based on their organizational requirements and goals. It is important to note that organizational boundaries are shifting from being closed to be permeable, enabling a better interaction with key partners and facilitating the knowledge exchange. However, this situation offers new challenges for organizations that want to be leaders in the near future because traditional organizations should shift their old paradigms, having an organizational culture more aligned with Web 2.0 philosophy (e.g., collaboration and sharing), which is the paradigm of the new digital economy.

Originality/value – This study is a step forward to understand the relationship between external and internal networks that act as enablers of knowledge acquisition and appropriation. We extend the knowledge-based view applying it in a Web 2.0 context, highlighting coordination and socialization mechanisms as critical success factors to integrate internal and external knowledge. Finally, the inclusion of interviews of employees from the main supplier of BBVA in these kinds of projects allows us to have a holistic perspective of the process of knowledge acquisition and appropriation.

There are millions of websites and each one with a different style,

But, it seems that we can classify them using one of the Victorian era brides rules of “Something old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue”, or even a more simple version:

Something New, Something Fresh or Something Vintage.

Many companies need desperately to invest in their websites identity and digital personality. In most of them, the web style doesn’t represent the organization pillars, mission or core values at all. Companies, universities and business schools that say that one of their pillars is innovation, and then you go to their websites and you think you’ve entered in the tunnel of time and you went to the 90s Web era!

Website innovative? YES on the 90s, nowadays at most , we can say they are absolutely “VINTAGE”, stylish.

I would say that most of the companies website style represents the marketing company style…

There are in the market excellent web designers, web professionals and companies need to invest more on them and in good consulting agencies to develop their websites….
