Always more services for BMWs

BMW has announced the addition of a set of new services based on its improved operating system, OS version 7. The manufacturer intends to take advantage of the same subscription models as those already enjoyed by content providers, among others.

If the manufacturer has not yet delivered more concrete details on how the subscriptions will work, it is already understood that the purchases will be made via the BMW ConnectedDrive store. The objective? Treat yourself to welcome recurring income during this difficult period.

More cybersecurity tools for less efficiency

Businesses are slowly improving their response to cybersecurity incidents, but at the same time, they continue to invest in too many tools that can actually reduce the effectiveness of information system security.

IBM has just released the results of a global survey of more than 3,400 IT and IT security professionals worldwide. The study suggests that while investment and planning are increasing, efficiency is not yet there. In question ? The complexity caused by the fragmentation of tools.

53 million tonnes of electronic waste

The amount of electronic waste reached the record high of 53.6 million tonnes worldwide in 2019, an increase of 9.2 million tonnes in five years. On average, an individual disposes of 7.3 kg of electronic waste.

Asia is the continent that generates the most waste, followed by America and Europe, Africa and Oceania closing the ranking. But in relative value, compared to the number of inhabitants, it is Europe and Oceania which prove to be the most polluting, followed closely by America.

The key figure: 9 consequences of the failure of a digital transformation project

According to a survey of different leaders, the failure of a digital transformation project generally creates a fear of failure for future similar projects. Even more alarming, the second most likely impact is the “complete shutdown of the service”.

The 9 likely consequences following the failure of a digital transformation project are therefore:

  • fear of failure;
  • the closure of the department;
  • layoffs and resignations;
  • a breach of customer data;
  • loss of customers;
  • loss of market share;
  • financial losses;
  • bad strategic choices;
  • a lack of time.

Practical: Android launches its own AirDrop

Long overdue, the Android competitor beta version of Apple's AirDrop feature, which enables wireless file sharing and sharing between multiple devices, has just been released by Google.

For the moment, this Android service, called "Nearby Share", is being tested, limited to users registered in the Play Services beta program. It will work using bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections, like AirDrop, but the files will be received through the relevant applications.
