HealthCare OpenData shows cost of pregnancy at men aged 76 are the highest in the Dutch city of Lelystad
Fri, Nov 14th 2014 5:17a   Wouter Aukema
A Dutch organisation by the name Vektis recently published an open-data file showing the costs that healthcare insurers have paid in 2012. With this data set, Vektis aims to help stake holders gain a better understanding with the ultimate goal to improve quality and cost of #healthcare. Dutch RTL Nieuws analysed the raw data and published several articles about this (link, in dutch) and aired it on their prime time TV news last night. So did I, but from a different angle: Vektis raw data reveals [read] Keywords: archive

Clarification for Information Leakage: A trusted US business partner of mine asked me for assistance. He needed help in identifying the source of a potential information leak for one of his customers. As everyone knows, the behaviour of regular business users is rather predictable. This predictability can be visualised and wrapped in a bubble allowing for granular and non-granular analysis. With the image below, I created a non-granular view where each bubble represents a user's normal inter [read] Keywords: collaboration domino ibm database leak

Did you know how many people forget the number combination of their luggage locks? Imagine the trouble, if you just arrived in your hotel after a long flight. In this short instruction video I posted a while back on youtube, I show how to open a Tumi TSA approved lock if you've forgotten the number combination.

Amazing experience working with IBM China

I have very good memories from working with people in the AsiaPac region, both as a guest speaker at it-security (BlackHat) conferences in Hong Kong and in performing some forensics work for the Internal Security Department in Singapore. This week I had my first experience in working together with team members from IBM in China. In one word: amazing!

Notes client startup time = super fast

The startup time of my Lotus Notes client on a Mac so fast, that I cannot believe end users are complaining. Watch the clip I created on my Mac: My setup: Notes 8.5 client on a Macbook Pro 17", connecting over a Ziggo cable network connection to the IBM Lotus Domino server at my office. My mailfile is BIG, > 10GB. Doing analysis at so many large customers worldwide, I sometimes hear (mostly IT people saying) that end users complain about the start of a Notes 8 client.

On Monday, I had an insurance expert from Crawford visiting my office to inspect some water damage. As soon as the man heard about our core business, he showed a big smile on his face and proudly showed me how at Crawford all their business is done in Lotus Notes & Domino. Asking him what he thinks about the platform, Mr. Koiter replied: "by far the best application I've ever worked with, wouldn't want anything else".

Yesterday, Ed Brill and I contributed to episode 162 of the famous Taking Notes Podcast by Bruce Elgort and Julian Robichaux.

In het RTL Journaal van half acht gisteravond, viel mij op hoezeer de D'66 posters op de achtergrond in beeld kwamen, tijdens interviews met niet D'66 politici. En dit was niet de eerste keer, vorige week gebeurde precies hetzelfde. Met de verkiezingen in aantocht, deed me dit denken aan een vorm van passieve reclame...

Having performed hundreds of DNA engagements at primarily large customers in the world, our DNA data warehouse allows us to harvest factual knowledge regarding deployment and utilization trends inside IBM Lotus Notes & Domino environments. Once the research question properly translates into an SQL select statement, we need to apply that statement across all the customer schemas from where we wish to harvest the data. However, each DNA engagement is unique and tailored to the specific custom [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes apple blogger sql

Network Sizing: Assumptions or Well Informed Decisions?
Mon, Apr 23rd 2012 8:00a   Wouter Aukema
In an earlier post, I mentioned I would do some more work on the Exchange Client Bandwidth Calculator from Microsoft. I will try and explain why I strongly disagree with these kinds of tools. Each Domino server logs the activity performed by end users. For each user session, an entry is written in the log that records start and stop time (and duration) of the session along with the network bytes sent and received by the client from the server. There's more data logged, but this is not relevant [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes blogger exchange exchange microsoft network office server

Beware to have both an HDMI and optical audio cable available. Currently, I have about 12,500 pics to view. In several folders.
