How Would Our Ministries, Agencies Fare in a Software Audit?

first_imgIf someone was to ask how much the Government of Liberia (GoL) or Liberian businesses spend on proprietary and commercial software, I am not sure you would get a straight answer. This is just my opinion, of course. But, if a software audit was done today at our ministries, state-owned enterprises (SOEs), businesses, and other organizations, how would they fare? In today’s article, I briefly discuss software audit and its impact on our society.Before I proceed, let clarify the misunderstanding that a few IT professionals have about a software audit. Software audit is different from Information Technology (IT) audit. A software audit or software licensing audit, on which this article focuses, is a regular investigation of the software installed on all computers in an organization to ensure that it is authorized or licensed. The process minimizes the risk of prosecution for software theft, as well as the risk of malware through uncontrolled software copying. In addition, a software audit ensures that the right technical support is available to all users.On the other hand, an Information Technology Audit or IT Audit is an examination of the checks and balances, or controls, within an information technology (IT) group. In this process, evidence of an organization’s information systems, practices, and operations are collected and evaluated.  The evidence culled from this evaluation is used to determine whether the organization’s information system is safeguarding the information assets, maintaining data integrity, and operating effectively and efficiently to achieve the organization’s business goals or objectives. As I said earlier, the focus of this article is on software audit and this is what I discuss in following paragraphs.Many of the IT professionals I know in Liberia (some of them working at government establishments), carry a software wallet or portable storage device that stores costly proprietary software on them. I often wonder how they manage to obtain their repository of software knowing that the cost of commercial software is extremely prohibitive. For example, the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system is about $200 USD or more per copy. This amount is more than what some IT professionals make monthly in Liberia. So, it doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that software piracy is ubiquitous in Liberia, and the entire continent of Africa. In fact, report on global software piracy by the International Data Corporation (IDC) found that 80% of all software sold in Africa is pirated. This level of piracy, according to the IDC’s report, causes Africa’s economy to suffer to the tune of over USD$1 billion.Software piracy is mostly found among consumers and small businesses, and the increasing availability of unlicensed software at online peer-to-peer file-sharing sites. For every legal copy of software that comes out more than one copy of it is made and distributed illegally, and Liberia is not alien to this phenomenon. Honestly, I don’t think a lot of folks in Liberia bother to think of the ethical or economic consequences of pirating software; just as folks don’t give thought do music or movie piracy.Companies like Microsoft, Oracle, Adobe, IBM, and other large software publishers often perform an audit of their customers. And when organizations are found to be in violation of licensing agreements, significant fines are placed on them. Despite this, no software publisher has successfully found a 100% secure method to control pirated software. Illegal software is freely available and readily accessible in many forms: on CDs, both home-recorded and mass-produced, and across the Internet. But does this mean that our government entities should have illegal software installed on their computers?For many businesses and organizations in Liberia, the term software auditing is foreign. And even if there is a remote thought of software audit, it is without a doubt given the lowest priority. Obviously, there are many reasons for this: very little interest in ICT and the lack of funding to purchase legitimate software. But the most vivid reason for this is the proverbial and ubiquitous problem that haunts us in Liberia; the lack of knowledge of software auditing and piracy, as well as their impact on organizations.Software audits provide several benefits for an organization, especially the Government of Liberia. It can be an effective and efficient way to improve software distribution, and help avoid copyright infringement prosecution by software companies like Microsoft. This is something I wish policy makers would take seriously. In fact, the Business Software Alliance (BSA), which is the leading advocate for the global software industry before governments and in the international marketplace, lists five key elements that it believes governments must implement in order to reduce piracy in their respective countries. Perhaps our policymakers can begin by taking a look at those five elements.Now, let’s get back to my original question: Do we know how much the Government of Liberia (GoL) spends on proprietary software? I would assume that it does spend a lot of money on proprietary software. And these software are greatly under-utilized, partly because of the lack of skills or proper training, and often because they were deployed without due diligence or research. Now, do you understand why I have always advocated the development and use of Open source software in Liberia? Such an initiative could allow software to be produced locally thereby empowering Liberians through entrepreneurship, and reducing the risks that software piracy brings.  If we invest the same amount spent purchasing proprietary software on Open Source Software development in Liberia, we may just be able to stimulate economic activity via a software ecosystem and reduce, if not eliminate, the amount spent on proprietary software. I reckon we might need to provide strong quantitative data to help us make a strong economic argument to our policymakers, for why we should adopt open source software. To make this argument, you need to collect data on the number of licenses that are purchased by the government, businesses, etc. The question is, where do you find the data?Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

East Bank pedestrian overpasses to open next year

first_imgWhile construction of overpasses along the East Bank Demerara Highway is expected to be completed by year end, those facilities have not been opened because the elevators are now being manufactured.The pedestrian overpass at Providence, East Bank DemeraraCoordinator of the Work Services Group (WSG), Geoffrey Vaughn, explained that the elevators will be installed and be operational by March of 2018, to cater for the pedestrians using that highway.Addressing a media conference on Thursday, the WSG coordinator said, “The contractors are presently wrapping up the project in terms of the overpass itself. The only thing left to do is install the elevators.”Some pedestrians have been seen utilising the overpass, especially at Peter’s Hall, EBD, and Vaughn has said a decision would have to be made as to whether to officially open them.“We would have to have that discussion with the ministers, to see whether they would want us to go ahead and have it opened, or we wait. Because it is a disadvantage to those unable to use the stairways,” he told reporters.In October, Project Manager (ag), Donor Programmes (Ministry of Public Infrastructure), Mark Greene, had said that works were moving apace and are on schedule for the November deadline.Greene explained that works completed thus far include provision of all bonds, insurances, guarantees, mobilisation, permanent relocation of utilities, and site clearance.Foundation works, including piling, pile caps, concrete slabs, fabrication and erection of superstructure, stairways and landings (ongoing), and a revetment at Diamond and installation of main overpass structure are complete, along with a canopy at the Providence site.Earlier in the year, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, had announced that a US$364,000 contract was awarded for the pedestrian overpass at Diamond, and a US$1 million contract for those at Houston, Peter’s Hall and Eccles.The construction of the overpasses at Houston, Eccles and Peter’s Hall were awarded to B&J Civil Works, while those at Providence and Diamond were awarded to S. Jagmohan Hardware.When completed, the pedestrian overpasses would not only eliminate congestion on the EBD road, which is among the busiest in the country, but would also keep pedestrians safe from fatal accidents.last_img read more

Parks and recreation panel resumes in Pico Rivera

He will have 30 days or two City Council meetings to present someone to the council for approval. The commission will replace the Arts and Culture Committee, which will disband, and will include projects for seniors and sporting leagues as well as arts-related activities. Some members of the committee will continue their involvement by working on the commission. Mayor Ron Beilke said he appointed former committee member Lorraine DeLaO to the commission because of her experience with arts and culture. DeLaO, 61, works for county Department of Psychiatry and said she found a deeper appreciation of the arts through her work on the committee. “I think learning about the sports and bringing in the arts and the music, it’s going to go well,” DeLaO said. Councilman Bob Archuleta chose Vicky Galarza for the commission. A longtime member of the Montebello Police Department, Galarza has been active in volunteering through Boy Scouts. “When I interviewed her, she impressed me with her knowledge of security, her knowledge of the kids and her knowledge with seniors,” Archuleta. Councilwoman Gracie Gallegos-Smith appointed Gil Guerena, 61, former president of the Pico Boys baseball league, in the hopes that he will help level the playing field for youths in the city, literally. “We need to leverage all of the leagues and make sure they all have appropriate space,” Gallegos-Smith said. Guerena said he has coached baseball and football through the Pico Boys and Pico Dons. Peter Ramirez, appointed by David Armenta, also has history with Pico Dons football, as a coach and helper for 30 years. Ramirez, 59, is a retiree from a career building cars for General Motors. Ramirez, who lives across the street from Rivera Park and has coached baseball there for 30 years, said he hopes to help with his intimate knowledge of the parks in the city. “Whatever I can do to help the park get better, I’ll do my best,” Ramirez said. “I’ll tell them what I think they need because I walk the park every day.” The new commissioners said that while they are political appointees, they expect to work together without difficulty. “I think this commission has got to be focused and have some kind of unification,” DeLaO said. “We’re all leaders in the community with different focuses, but now we’re going to have to come together as one.” airan.scruby@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Cheney blasts senators for Iraq war ‘revisionism’

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – Vice President Dick Cheney stepped up the White House attacks on critics of the Iraq war Monday, declaring that senators who say Americans were sent into battle based on a lie are engaging in “revisionism of the most corrupt and shameless variety.” In remarks delivered at the American Enterprise Institute, Cheney briefly said he considered debate over the war healthy, and he echoed President George W. Bush’s recent praise of Rep. John P. Murtha, the Pennsylvania Democrat who has called for an early withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, as “a good man, a Marine, a patriot.” But the vice president quickly made clear that after a week of criticism of Bush on Capitol Hill, the White House would not relent in its campaign against critics of the war and of the faulty intelligence that led up to it. Cheney decided last week, as the war debate was intensifying, to make his speech for maximum impact on an otherwise quiet Monday, the first day that Congress was out of town on recess and while Bush was traveling back to Washington from a trip to Asia. “The flaws in the intelligence are plain enough in hindsight, but any suggestion that prewar information was distorted, hyped or fabricated by the leader of the nation is utterly false,” Cheney said. “Sen. John McCain put it best: ‘It is a lie to say that the president lied to the American people.”‘ AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Cheney was referring to the Arizona Republican and former North Vietnamese prisoner of war. McCain has had an off-again, on-again relationship with the White House, but has supported the war and called for additional troops in Iraq. The vice president made clear that he was distinguishing between his personal regard for Murtha, a Vietnam veteran, and what he considered the consequences of Murtha’s proposed policies. Cheney said an early withdrawal from Iraq would be a “terrible blow” to the security of the United States, and painted a bleak picture of terrorists’ ambitions in Iraq. “The terrorists believe that by controlling an entire country,” he said, “they will be able to target and overthrow other governments in the region, and to establish a radical Islamic empire that encompasses a region from Spain, across North Africa, through the Middle East and South Asia, all the way to Indonesia. They have made clear, as well, their ultimate ambitions: to arm themselves with weapons of mass destruction, to destroy Israel, to intimidate all Western countries and to cause mass death in the United States.” Democrats immediately denounced Cheney’s remarks, issuing a point-by-point rebuttal to the major points in his speech. “The vice president and this administration have a credibility problem,” Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, said in a statement. “Rather than giving our troops a plan to move forward in Iraq and changing their failed course, they continue to ignore the facts and lash out at those who raise legitimate questions about how the administration misused intelligence in its rush to war.” last_img read more
