NZCS is proud to bring you the next of the National ICT Series, this month
focusing on mapping ICT to the "real world" through business process
modelling and BPMN 2.0.
Mapping ICT to the "Real World" with Process Modelling
One of the major strengths of ICT is improving the efficiency and
profitability of business, however to be successful it's essential that ICT
accurately maps to the way organisations do business.
In that context, processes are at the heart of everything we do. No matter
what it is. And in all facets of an organisation, some process is always
being followed even if that process only exists in the heads of a few key
Business Process Mapping is all about capturing and documenting these
processes in a standard manner all stakeholders understand. The correct
documentation and execution of these processes is a key factor in building
agile organisations and plays a primary role in enabling businesses large
This presentation will look at how to document your existing processes in a
standards compliant manner that will enable both Business and IT to finally
talk the same language while providing key artefacts for process
re-engineering projects and allowing for the possible direct execution of
those processes in a BPMS.
This subject and presentation is essential for ICT professionals and
Business Analysts alike who are serious about providing the maximum return
to their organisations or clients for their ICT investment.
Special thanks to Integration Works Ltd for sponsoring this presentation.

Is there a tool in ubuntu that a user can start that reports the real world ip
address and configures a home router to open a port to allow remote
I have a friend or two for whom it would nice to get them to start a program,
report to me the details via MSN or Skype or telephone etc and allow me to
log in and fix or make a configuration change to their machine. I know how
to set things up using ssh etc but that relies on some initial configuration
at the their end. KDE has a nice VNC invite function but it won't do the
router config part.
It appears the likes of KTorrent and Azuereus have the ability to do some to
the router via UPnP to open ports up on the router dynamically so I am
guessing all this is possible.
A reminder, the WLUG Fixit Meeting is today.

We'll have the usual tables, power, various ISO's, Internet, coffee and light lunch, etc.
If there's something you specifically want to work on please mention it on the mailing list in advance so we can study up beforehand or bring any necessary equipment.
Also we're paying a little extra for hall and internet now, so a gold coin donation to help cover these costs would be greatly appreciated.
