The General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") specifies the number of conditions under which an organization that processes personal data is required to erase it. However, the GDPR does not define the term "erasure," and it is not immediately obvious what an organization must do in order to comply with the GDPR's erasure requirements. Organizations that process personal data through the use of flash memory storage devices, such as solid state drives, face a special challenge in light of the difficulty of achieving secure erasure from those media. This white paper provides several suggestions about how to comply with a GDPR data erasure obligation.
Software development is an ever changing industry. Tools, frameworks and even standards used in a project one year can be outdated the next year. The new and fancy project becomes a legacy system in no-time. It’s often too expensive to rebuild such a system with state of the art tools, especially large ones. The ability to integrate and communicate with these systems is strongly dependent on the APIs they provide, possibly forcing old technologies to be used even in new projects – and this is a problem.
To increase the chances of succeeding with your business model you need to consider what problem your customer really needs help with. One way for this is to study barriers leading to the need of assistance from you. In this white paper we use a model based upon the customer’s lack of accessibility, skill, time, or monetary funds.
Almost every Swede has the possibility to connect to the Internet, often from a wide array of devices. But some people have difficulties to access the web due to disabilities. Disabilities that can present themselves in a variety of ways and can arise due to different causes, such as results of accidents, birth defects or fallout due to aging. There are two ways to handle this, to have good web accessibility and with aiding technology for people with needs, though some of these aids need the websites to be developed in a certain and accessible way to work properly. The challenge thereby is to find out how companies, both developers and clients, can create as well as gain value by working with web accessibility, as well as to find what these values can be. The conducted study has lead to results showing that web accessibility can be value creating for businesses as well as for the users. Among the benefits are financial gains, lowered needs for customer support, reduced risk of legal actions, gains of good will and public relations, and the possibility of more potential customers.
The use of agile methods is becoming widespread in the system development industry. Organization’s varying needs and environments results in context specific adjustments of agile methods. Still, the evaluation of agile work is often based on how well the organization complies with a commercial method. However, in this study, compliance of practices to strategic priorities is considered. The aim has been to identify how gaps between practice and priority can be measured. A case study has been conducted to measure the perceptual performance of five Scrum practices with consideration to the prioritization of seven agile aspects. The results show that the studied agile aspects are considered essential in the organization and that practices in some cases underperform or overperform. The study is a first attempt to consider strategic consensus in agile system development, and the measurement can be used to indicate an organizations strategic direction and identify practices that are not performing in alignment with strategic priorities.
