Melbourne-based business software specialist EBS (Evolution Business Systems) this month celebrated 15 years in business after posting a record year during 2015-16.
EBS is a Microsoft Gold ERP Partner specialising in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and other Enterprise Resource Planning solutions that can be tailored to the needs of small to medium sized businesses. The privately-owned company has a particular strength in the not-for-profit sector.
EBS founder and managing director Paul Woods said the company’s success was due to its ability to help customers navigate the rapidly evolving technology industry. “It’s been a tumultuous period to run a business,” he said.
Community concern is mounting about plans to store high level radioactive waste above ground for years before building a proposed nuclear waste dump, warns Conservation SA CEO Craig Wilkins.
“From our public consultation, most people think this proposed dump is an 'out of sight, out of mind' idea, where we bury the waste deep in the outback and that’s it,” he said. “The reality is very different.
“The Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission was very candid: The project only stacks up financially if we import and stockpile 50,000 tonnes of nuclear waste above ground for as long as 17 years before we can deposit it in an underground disposal site. Indeed, that ‘interim’ surface site will store tens of thousands of tonnes above ground for the next 100 years.
“So, we acquire the risk and responsibility for this nuclear waste before we know if we can actually build and operate the ultimate repository – let alone obtain community consent for it.
It’s time to rethink security warns David McNeely, a senior executive at Centrify orporation, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats, who is in Australia this week.
Mr McNeely, Centrify’s Vice President of Product Strategy, who today speaks at a Gartner risk management summit in Sydney, said businesses increasingly recognised that “passwords are broken and users have too much access and privilege”. “Staying with the status quo is not viable because password-based security solutions are not protecting us,” he said.
“Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report found that 63 per cent of confirmed data breaches involve weak, default or stolen passwords. Centrify research has found that 52 per cent of employees sometimes share their access credentials with contractors and vendors.
“For organisations to reduce the risks created by hybrid IT infrastructures, they need to move from a position of having too many passwords and too much privilege for users to a situation where all privileged access is logged and monitored as a standard procedure.
Two revolutionary electric motorbikes undertaking an 80-day around-the-world odyssey are equipped with world-leading vehicle communication technology from Australian company Cohda Wireless.
On Sunday, August 14, STORM Eindhoven, a team of 23 students from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, set off with these electric motorbikes on a round-the-world journey.
Aiming to cover 26,000 kilometres in 80 days, the student-built motorbikes contain Cohda MK5 On-Board Units which enable V2X (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure) communications. As well as monitoring motorbike performance during the journey, Cohda plans to demonstrate how V2X systems can improve vehicle safety and traffic efficiency in cities with V2X infrastructure installed.
British brand Jaguar Land Rover has used Cohda Wireless connected vehicle systems in a pioneering research project to enable future autonomous cars to drive over any surface or terrain.
Jaguar Land Rover’s multi-million pound Autonomous all-terrain driving research project envisages a self-driving car that can navigate both on-road and off-road as well as in difficult weather conditions.
The project has used Cohda Wireless MK5 On-Board Units and software stacks and applications to deploy its V2X (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure) systems.
In a world-first off-road demonstration, Jaguar Land Rover connected two Range Rover Sports together using Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) technology from Cohda Wireless to create an Off-Road Connected Convoy. The company has published this video at https://youtu.be/gfbHjf2qeJE to show these off-road connected convoy research vehicles communicating with each other using Cohda MK5 units.
