Municipalities take advantage of SMS to help people

16 Feb 2018

The humble SMS is a widely used tool and as such it is no miracle that municipalities use it widely as well. With high delivery, open rates and the majority of SMS opened within the first 3 minutes, there are few other means of communication that can reach people as fast and as reliably. Not to mention that the SMS works with any device, so recipients don’t have to have an internet-connected smartphone.

Central log management and why it really matters

06 Feb 2018

It’s a well-known fact that without logging we don’t really understand if our systems are functioning properly. Or worse, if something goes wrong, it’s next-to-impossible to understand why.  

However, today’s software architecture is more modularized as opposed to a more monolithic approach employed in the past. Individual applications are now often isolated into application containers (e.g. LXC, Docker) to decouple complex systems into more easily manageable chunks which can be easily deployed, replicated, secured and provisioned.
