Are There Problems with Ethical Consistencies in Enterprises

In large companies, there will always be the questions that we ask ourselves. Should we do this? When this question is posed normally there are work schedules that are in progress that get surpassed. The question is asked by the team but because there isn’t any oversight while the issue is being dealt with something that we thought would help the situation later ethically hurt the entire organization. This is why there are the ethical workshops that pull intellectual creators into them. This is with a hope to cause and give pause to those of that create mediums to aid in the digestion of data. Non-Technical documentation would aid in an oversite committee to understand where there could have been a gap in understanding. We as the creators just want to resolve the problem that we are presented with. Where we need the help is making sure that we document our findings well enough that we could better construct a fix that would fit the regulatory compliances. ethics_image

Sure they could it in my current company it is happening as I am typing this response to this discussion question. Some things fall between the cracks but with a committee in place and the proper documentation created it gives a sense of a pause for us. At least we get to take a second look at what is needed to resolve the anomaly with the executive team so that they know it is on the radar. In a large enterprise, they had better have some ethics training available. An organization is only as strong as its weakest individual, group, training course, etc… We as people are flawed and sometimes ruthless. It is up to the company to ensure that everyone that is employed by them that they have the ethics rules and complacency in place so that they at least know where the organization stands when it comes to how they operate and what is expected by each employee. The employee themselves have to want to do the right things for themselves and the company for ethical reasoning to be favored and handled correctly. Large enterprises can’t afford to leave risks and gaps of this nature left open. It would certainly end them.

Is the Technology World Currently Flat?

Privacy Experts Reveal How to Opt out of Global Surveillance with VPN

With the networking and computer world being flat as told by the book “The World is Flat” written by Thomas Friedman in 2006. What I glimpsed in the passages of the book and the articles that I researched was that once the broadband Internet boom happened it placed the entire world on the same footings almost. Earlier there were companies that allowed everyday users access to the internet. After broadband hit, there were no more AOL’s, AT&T’s, etc… These were the company’s that gave us as the user the ability to connect to the Internet through them. We were a part of their Intranet in a sense, we had a front seat to all of their NEWS and articles that came out almost instantly. For any other sites all we had to do was just bring up that company’s main page and BLAM you were in.

Now the companies we previously used to connect to the Internet have to protect themselves with firewall’s, and sophisticated routers, switches that pull double duty in routing network traffic. With all of this new protection and security, there is now a new technology that has cause for more security and that is the Big Data initiatives that are coming up on the horizons. To protect these new ventures companies are spending mountains of money on Big Data and Business Intelligence Analytics. Noticing that the landscape is evening the enterprises are resetting everything again to secure themselves and their resources. The difference between now and then is that there are more individuals with talents that can help smaller entities carve out their own piece of the Big Data world.

AI and Machine Learning are also new pieces on the landscape that have all the players scrambling to gain some footing. There aren’t many players available to enterprises or small companies. So the individuals that are learning these new technologies are making themselves valuable which in turn tries to keep the world flat in a sense.
