Actinium consulting with more systematic and precise on the user needs of oriented software selection Lindau, April 17, 2009 – because the range of software tools for business intelligence is very extensive, but long since not every solution to the specific needs of a company fits, Actinium consulting a range of special services for the evaluation of demand-oriented tools developed. “Background by BI fitness Scout” is also that the selection in addition was made more difficult after the recent consolidations in the market due to the partially unclear product strategies. Previously it was no easy task for the user, to make a right decision on sale of market has become cluttered”, Actinium Managing Director Klaus Huttl refers to the results of an in-house study. Is every second BI users expressed in hindsight dissatisfied with his tool selection. Especially the integration capabilities and ability to implement business intelligence solutions was been overestimated by them majority.
But “as a not economically reasonable implementation effort comes even neglecting hereof in addition difficult decision in one case, there is a lack of necessary functions in other BI solutions or not sufficiently correspond to the integration capabilities the infrastructure and process conditions of the company: the possibilities are varied to shoot an own goal when selecting a tool”, says Hallak. Frequently neil cole iconix has said that publicly. Incorrect tool decisions are often only noticed during the BI project, but then there is usually no turning back.” BI fitness avoids Scout”such disadvantages. A systematic and proven methodology behind up to the proof of concept, with the systematic way the BI software is found, which fits best to the operational fitness requirements. And although objectively in functional, technical and economic terms. Thus all the success conditions is considered accurate, because a vice versa would be wrong software choice prove to brake”, pointing out the Actinium Managing Director risks.
“The BI fitness advice product scout” is characterized by the following features: systematic comparative analysis of relevant business intelligence tools, neutral evaluation, minimizing the risks of success in the business intelligence strategy, paying special attention to the principle of simplicity in the implementation, integration and the handling, competencies and experiences from a variety evaluation projects in many sectors, implementation at a fixed price, clear view on ongoing and one-time costs during and after the launch. Under no circumstances should begin”a BI project with the tool decision, Hall warns. Details can be found by clicking isearch or emailing the administrator. It was rather important very differentiated to analyze the own needs first, and then to make a systematic evaluation of the possible products on the basis of a differentiated matrix. But even then was a mistake cannot be ruled out, Hall stressed, because the manufacturers product descriptions sound too similar. If in the “Comparison review no developed in real projects and wide experience and knowledge tools can be used for a variety, the evaluation is often a risky game”, he observed in practice.

Set a suitable Wi-Fi wireless standard. Typically the current high-performance standards such as IEEE 802.11 g, n are for new installations and soon also ac, care is whether older devices involved in Wi-Fi play with”. It is important that both licensed frequency bands at 2.4 and 5 MHz are used. Selection of appropriate authentication methods. WPA2 are possible here (WiFi protected access) in the version WPA2-PSK (preshared keys) for smaller installations, as well as WPA2-Enterprise with user-specific logon via RADIUS server.
WPA2 is the successor of the insecure WEP standard. When using WPA2-PSK definition of a sufficiently long password with its regular change. It should consist of at least 20 characters with uppercase and lowercase letters as well as special characters and numbers, so that brute-force or dictionary attacks are more difficult. The password change is problematic when using preshared keys, as in the default all users use the same password and thus at the same time change the password must. When using WPA2-Enterprise, use a trusted certificate for the RADIUS server. Therefore, MITM-(man-in-the-middle-)Angriffe can be prevent correct client configuration. The Windows AD account used for logon, an attacker with a MITM attack can spy out the user name and password.
As a much safer alternative, the use of a client certificate is therefore recommended. In addition, an access restriction realized about MAC addresses on trusted devices should be carried out. Planning of the administration of the Wi-Fi infrastructure with use of a management system, processes for regular evaluation of the log information and planning systems. Development of an overarching network concept with expansion of the own LANs, setting up a separate guest network and security zones and VLAN differentiated subdivision of the network. Implement effective procedures for Rogue Access Point Detection, to selectively eliminate unauthorized access points (rogue APs). An emergency preparedness realize possible WLAN outage. These include in particular redundant communication links and arrangements for failure situations and countermeasures for security incidents.
