In this post I posed the question ‘Who is Processing Your Data’ highlighting some potential GDPR issues with normal website hosting services versus the I-ntarsia managed platform. It was in response to an email from a company marketing manager who’s MD asked who was doing a plethora of data processing tasks. Worrying stuff. Late last night we received notification from the Drupal folks that a moderately critical security release was being made available late on Wednesday 1st August (a fant ...Continue Reading

I am often asked to supply information to support the choice of Drupal for a project. This document from Sucuri is something I think will be useful in doing just that. It is an analysis of security issues with real installations of the top CMS platforms. Drupal is by far the best performer in the top 4 systems, 52 times less likely to be hacked than Wordpress . However, the report concludes that this is not a direct reflection on the core software (although that is a significant factor) ...Continue Reading

I-Next has been run on a ‘work anywhere’ ethos for almost 10 years now. We have all of our systems in the cloud and have had teams working ,very successfully, around the globe for all of that time. One of our primary tools for cooperative working has been our secure, internal, instant messaging system which we use constantly throughout the working day. The only drawback to this system has been that it is only for our internal staff. We have looked for ‘sensible’ customer and public facing system ...Continue Reading

For many years I have used an analogy to explain to project stakeholders how they should look at resourcing their digital projects and how a service platform like I-ntarsia fits in. I have finally got around to writing an overview on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/resourcing-digital-project-team-launch-orbit-model-john-hannawin/ I hope you find that useful.  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/resourcing-digital-project-team-launch-orbit-model-john-hannawin/ ...Continue Reading

The announcement that Microsoft is acquiring GitHub for $7.5Bn has prompted a flurry of questions about the future from customers who know that the I-ntarsia MDSP has a git based service integrated. I thought I’d post some clarification for all concerned. What is git? It is important to be clear on the differences between terms that get bandied about in these circumstances. Git is a version control system for tracking changes to computer files and coordinating those between m ...Continue Reading

For some time now, I have used the simple diagram on this page to illustrate what the I-ntarsia Managed Digital Service Platform is in comparison with other services. During the recent scramble for GDPR compliance it was amusing to receive a scan of that diagram attached to an enquiry from a marketing manager. The gist of the enquiry was: “The MD passed me copy of a diagram from your website that she’d written some notes on. I asked our digital agency and the answers they gave me ...Continue Reading

Introducing I-ntarsia Directions ================================ This is the first, introductory, posting to the newly formed I-ntarsia Directions announcement service. It's no secret that this service has been created out of the need for GDPR compliance. To make my life easier I decided to amalgamate our previous, unstructured and varied mailing lists into one, consent driven, announcement service for customers partners and anyone else who's interested in what we are doing. I'm very gratefu ...Continue Reading
