L’essentiel est sans cesse menacé par l’insignifiant.…

You either get bitter or you get better.…

@jfdeclercq_biz: April 09, 2018 at 01:08PM

Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.…

Don’t raise your voice: improve your argument.…

Direction is much more important than speed. Many are going nowhere fast.

From January 1st 2017 until Sept 15th 2017, I worked as “IT Demand Excellence Manager” at PVGroup.

I managed a team of about 5 Enterprise IT architects and 5 Domain Experts (Non-Life, Life, Claims, Employee Benefits and Front).

This was a very good team to aim at the description of the complete Enterprise Architecture : from Business Processes to Technical Infrastructure.

Together we developed an interesting “Enterprise Architecture” process with several activities:

  • Intake
  • Production
  • Review
  • Validation
  • Harvesting

This was the ITDEME  (IT Demand Excellence) process.

In addition we were busy with building some new digital foundations : ESB, ECM, IAM……

Pourquoi est-ce que la décision de Trump de se retirer de l’accord sur le climat nous énerve ? Car nous savons que quelquepart Trump méprise deux principes que nous savons devoir respecter : la respect de la nature et d’eviter la pollution. En brisant l’accord il ne respecte pas la promesse faite par son prédécesseur. Ansi il ne respecte pas ses engagements.

Un principe de succès important dans la vie est de ne pas agir uniquement pour soi même mais d’agir aussi – et peut-être surtout – pour les autres. 

En regardant le sport à la télé ce dimanche je me pose alors la question : pour qui roulent les formule 1 ? Pour qui roule Philippe Gilbert ? Pour qui jouent Ronaldo et Messi ?

Dans un premier temps on pourrait penser qu’ils le font uniquement pour eux et pour l’argent.  Mais cet argent leur parvient car nous acceptons de le leur donner. En réalité ces sportifs travaillent pour nous: les passionnés de sport.…

Nous étions poussières et nous redeviendrons poussière. Tout ce que nous sommes vient de la terre. Tout ce qui constitue notre corps est fait d?atomes que nous et nos ancêtres avons avalé un jour. Tout ce que nous sommes vient de la terre directement ou indirectement. De ce que nous avons ingéré, une partie reste en nous, l?autre partie retourne directement à la terre. Nous allons à la toilette, nous perdons des cheveux, nous coupons nos ongles, la poussière de notre peau se répand dans notre maison.

Et voilà que les atomes que nous avons arrachés à la terre sous forme d?eau, de blé ou de salade se mettent en mouvement : nous marchons, nous courrons, nous prenons l?avion, nous allons en voyage. Puis nous mourrons et nous rendons à la terre tout ce que nous lui avions emprunté.

Selon Einstein, masse et énergie sont équivalents. Ainsi sommes-nous, êtres vivants, des vagues d?énergie qui se déplacent à la surface telles d?éphémères vagues sur la mer. Des vagues de 2m de haut qui parfois montent plus haut comme des gouttes d?eau qui jaillissent ou qui se déplacent dans des canalisations. Même si, en hauteur ou dans nos chaussures, nous sommes pendant un temps déconnecté de notre terre, nous y reviendrons toujours tôt ou tard.

I just wanted to draw your attention to a SCRUM/KANBAN/XP acronym : INVEST.

INVEST represents the the characteristics of a good quality Product Backlog Item (PBI) :

  • Independent
  • Negotiable
  • Valuable
  • Estimatable
  • Small
  • Testable

See INVEST on Wikipedia

Sounds a bit like a SMART objective…

Here is an interesting thought of a colleague yesterday (Thomas Vermassen – Lead Architect ORES) on documenting IT systems:

You have basically two strategies for keeping your Enterprise Architecture knowledge under control.

The first one is to capitalize on people. If your organization is stable enough you can assign clear responsibilities and you should be able to find the right information by finding the right person.

The second one is to capitalize on documentation. Through deliverables you make sure everything is described as it should be. This is most suitable if you have a high collaborators turnover like when you work with a lot of sub-contractors.

The ideal world is probably to have both.

I’m a deliverable minded person and I so I tend to prefer the second one. I value information sharing as it often avoids job protection and silo thinking. The notion of deliverable is also linked to another value that I like : personal contribution.

Also when the architecture is complex I don’t see how you can just book a meeting with someone in oder for him to explain you the 100 business processes in scope. That must be why clever people write books……

(Peut-être avez-vous déja rencontré cette attitude)

Un mec en basquettes monte dans une formule 1. En jeans et sans casque.

Il monte dans la formule 1, démarre le moteur, essaye de rouler et cale.

Il sort de la voiture et dit :

“C’est de la merde cette voiture. Elle fait du bruit et elle roule pas”.

@jfdeclercq_biz: April 30, 2016 at 01:05PM

In 2010 I left IBM and I started as a freelancer.

I needed a new computer.

A friend of mine had a MacBook Pro. He has always been an excellent ITer so I decided to follow his advise and give Mac a try. I bought a MacBook Pro. The best one. The most expensive one.

Was it a better experience than Windows ? Not really. My Mac’s performance decreased with time just like it would with a windows PC.

I even had regression: very annoying crashes due to the GPU switches. I has to install freeware (GfxCardStatus – https://gfx.io/) to be able to use my mac.

When the MacBook pro disk gets full the performance gets really very bad making the computer unusable.

At the store they told me the only solution was to format and re-install… Last week I decided to re-install the OS from the original CD. I really hesitated to try Ubuntu on MacBook Pro. Before I upgraded to “El Captain” I checked if my GPU problem was still there and in fact it had disappeared ! I could connect to an external display which was impossible since years… So I decided to report to Apple.

Here is what I sent to Apple as a comment to the crash report:

GPU switch crashes my Macbook Pro 2010.  For example when connecting to external monitor.

This week I reinstalled with the original CD OSX 10.6.3 and I could extend my desktop to a second screen. After OSX updates it?s now crashing again.

I conclude that it?s a software problem and that Apple OSX suffers from regression for managing the GPU.

I?m obliged to play with GfxCardStatus to maintain my mac up and running in a decent way.

Many software that are initially designed on windows don’t work well or just don’t work on Mac : MS Office, Sparx EA, MAMP, Java, Flash…

So finally :

  • The overall MacBook experience is not better
  • I have much more freedom and choice on Android and Windows
  • You have less viruses on Mac Vs Windows but  can install Ubuntu or boot Linux on any PC.
  • Apple is 50% more expensive

In 2010 I had also bought an iPad 1. The hardware is still ok but it has also become unusable : impossible to update most of the apps.

Bye bye Apple.…
