Lotus Notes Infrastructure

Provides database usage and cost saves the current flood of information generated daily new data. The common data storage of current and old data makes it difficult to track and prevent efficient operation. To restore this overview has the company Pro – inform information systems GmbH in Frankfurt am main set itself the objective and developed the application “Database Usage”. By identifying and archiving inactive data bases in a Lotus Notes environment, database usage the tool of choice is when it comes to taking decisions – for example for new resources -. Pro – inform IT-Systeme GmbH was founded in 2000 and since then successfully managed companies of various industries and sizes in the Rhine-main area. Core topics of the IT service provider based in Frankfurt am Main are groupware (Lotus Notes and Microsoft SharePoint), hosting, software development and application maintenance.

Pro – inform is especially recommended for flexible, tailor-made and customised solutions. “Database usage originated from the need for one of our customers” Karl Wolny, reported Managing Director of Pro – inform IT-systems GmbH. “the problem of chaotic data bank structures was previously known to us, however, came the idea to develop a suitable software solution in-house, ultimately with this concrete demand.” By the application the overview can be recovered according to Pro – inform first what has a positive effect on the workload of administrators. The application is especially useful if E.g. Server their capacity limits launch and quick decisions for the extension of the hardware resources are needed. Database usage creates an optimal basis for decision-making by identifying and archiving inactive data bases. Capacities, which are occupied by orphaned data banks, be freed from the legacy, so that investment in new hardware are at best no longer necessary.

Mr Wolny emphasizes the ROI (“return on investment”) while by he shows, that the resulting cost savings, the cost for database usage in any case justify. Identified as more beneficiaries Mr Wolny plan accounts, migrating their data to another system, or the shift to a document management system (DMS): “If you move, you would sure not lump-sum take all.” Database usage creates overview and saves costs.

Workstation Client

(Leverkusen, 07.01.2008) The conditions in the management of the decentralized work systems according to the complexity of barometer of the consulting firm Centracon have increased further in the course of the year. Then a high complexity of client systems is almost two-thirds of the companies. Derived from the consulting practice Centracon has identified various symptoms, which the problematic relationships reveal: a high administration overhead by the wide range of basic and special applications on the Workstation systems continuously. Updates and migrations to the decentralized systems regularly cause bottlenecks at the RessourcenStationare and mobile workers can not flexible enough with the required applications are supplied. Reorganizations cause very extensive, time-consuming and costly projects. Technically heterogeneous landscaped sites increase the requirements for the distributed access.

There are limitations on the flexible scaling of local resources. The lack of efficient central control international locations. The growing security and business continuity requirements are not sufficiently taken into account in terms of infrastructure. The integration of suppliers, customers and other external partners is technically inadequate. A standardization and flexibility comport is difficult with the existing infrastructure concepts. Smart client architecture create an optimal alternative here, because they replace the previously rigid, location-based models with flexible conditions with low infrastructure dependency. Such concepts IT jobs tailored to provided quasi users as a service from the socket, on demand is available at any internal and external sites”, explains Centracon CEO of Robert Gallant. This is not possible with the traditional infrastructure concepts.

The essential feature of the smart client architecture belongs to, that by central or virtual workstations and applications providing a modular standardization encryptor. On this basis, you can break up in classical architecture concepts very inflexible mapping applications and IT jobs. In addition to the significant gain in flexibility and mobility client architectures bring about a permanent reduction of the resource needs in the workplace management smart, because they create a much higher degree of automation”, describes the decisive effect Galstyan. Also the way could be there without large investments perform, because the company could relying on existing techniques and skills. Although the idea of smart a forward-looking infrastructure creates client architecture which, whose development this requires no high investments”, says Gallant. Rather, the heart of is the overarching concept for the innovative orientation of the infrastructure.

Urban Infrastructure

Important to stand out that in this period of 10 years the city hall already spent R$11,3 Billions, that is, it had surpassed in R$ 100 million the initial debt. This escape of resources brought disastrous consequncias for the municipal administration therefore the other governmental areas removed precious resources of all as: Public health, Education, Transports, Urban Infrastructure, Habitation, etc. All these areas present serious deficiencies in the attendance the population and unhappyly they had had of being neglected by the payment of the public debt with its high interests. Studies of the Secretariat of Finances of the city of So Paulo disclose that only with the change in the financing conditions, as the use of other indices of monetary update as the IPCA (Index of Prices to the Ample Consumer) or of course raised tax SELIC, they would reduce the sum of the debt in some billions of Reals. In the case of the IPCA, kept the same tax of interests of 9% to the year, would have reduction of R$ 19 Billion. Already for tax SELIC, the economy it would arrive the R$ 12 Billion.

The main problem happened of this situation is that it does not have any type of quarrel gone deep on a subject that intervenes directly with the capacity of expenses of the city hall of the city of So Paulo. Per next the 20 years, about 13% to the net revenue the budget the city it will be destined to the payment of this debt and it does not have perceivable movements of the classroom politics to search a solution for this gigantic economic impediment that also affects the majority of the Brazilian cities. As all the problems of economic order that had always affected our country, the joined solution always was to transfer to the future the necessary resolutions for today. With the beginning of a new government always the possibility of quarrel of the complicated subjects resurges more as this of the debt of the cities with the federal government. However, as it can still more reduce already the engaged budget of the Union, it has of if waiting to see if really we will have serious debates and that they bring benefits for the wronged greaters with this situation: The population of the city of So Paulo and for extension, for sharing of the same problems, all the Brazilian population.

Possibilities of investment many offer up the liquid investors. Shares, funds, certificates, and fixed-income exposure provide sufficient scope for action for each claim. At this point, the more conservative asset classes should be illuminated even closer. The focus is aimed quite particularly to one in the hustle and bustle of the sales efforts of German banks almost into oblivion troubled investment opportunity: the classic deposit. Fixed-term deposit is made simple by design. A contract is concluded with the Bank. The investor waives the availability of its deposits for a certain period of time, which can stretch up to several years for over a month.

That credit institution receives the opportunity to work with the money and paid for this benefit with a higher interest rate. How high the yield is actually depends on various factors. A certain differences exist between different providers, on the other hand depends on the interest rate with the duration of the term of the Off contract. The longer the investor is willing to leave his money in the hands of the Bank, the higher the interest rate will be, at least up to a certain limit. With an investment term of more than two to three years the interest rates offered by the Bank be less usually something as an investment term of up to two years. This is due to the changes in the money market, the amount of interest incurred for a bank when she takes on loans in the money market, even so. Since it is no longer possible with an investment horizon of more than two years for the Bank sufficiently to be able to assess the development of the key interest rates, she can offer their investors even a lower interest rate.

In the current market situation can be expected with an investment horizon of twelve months on average about 4 to 4.5 percent. This is an attractive yield for conservative investors who shy away from risk of in capital markets and fluctuations in the value associated. It must bear in mind, that the investment in fixed-term deposits any knowledge nor the ongoing Monitoring of the market requires. Rather, the investor can calculate daily with the repayment of deposits and interest. A short simple search on the Internet on websites with a range identifies the currently cheapest provider. The opening of a deposit account is associated typically with little bureaucracy. Generally it doesn’t matter at which Bank the investment is made. However, the House should be member of a beyond the statutory minimum deposit guarantee fund, so that the investors in the event of a bank failure must not fear for its deposits.

Fixedterm Deposits

Deposit is very well suited as long-term plant when day money there are currently the weekly changes in interest rates, which always discourage this form of investment of the interest rates. Beginning of 2009 gave banks for overnight interest rates above 4% p.a. and today the best interest rates are 3% p.a.. Who long-term and with a high rate of return would like to invest his money, which should be to look for the deposits of the Festgeldes. This, the investor can determine the runtime itself. The interest also binds to at run time. The longer the money at a bank is created, all the more higher interest rates fall out. Thus, the Citibank at a term of 72 months E.g. currently offers an interest rate of 3.15% p.a.. Find more deals for a Festgeldanlage consumers among 1822 direct with an interest rate of 2.60% p.a. for a term of 60 months. Rather shorter plants offering fixed-term deposits of Mercedes-Benz Bank with an interest rate of 2.00% suitable for p.a. with a contract duration of 12 months. Investors with shorter maturities should remain on the Tagesgeld fall back. Fixed-term deposits worth after about 12 months term. Minimum deposits there are an average of 2,500 euros, a shorter term would be not worthwhile.

So far helped here often only the chemical mace or the high pressure cleaner. But is that really every year on the new? A novel coating from the laboratories of the nanotechnologist promises long-lasting protection against Moss, algae and green lining. The new panacea is called TitanShield and is simply sprayed on the surface after cleaning. The effect of the completely invisible coating is based on the principle of photo-catalysis. In conjunction with light is the coating able to decompose all organic substances, so that Moose and green coverings have no chance. But also normal soiling”can not settle. They are decomposed by the coating and easily washed off by the rain. The coating is just as well can be used on natural stone or clinker on plaster facades.

But also smooth and polished surfaces can be TitanShield coat. Often also the antibacterial effect of the coating is needed here apart from self cleaning. A TitanShield coating is stable for 10 to 15 years, while the effectiveness is not consumed, as photocatalysis is stimulated by the light again. See for further information on product and operation.
