Skogsbruket är en grundpelare såväl i svensk ekonomi som i omställningen till en koldioxidneutral framtid. Allt mer av skogsbrukets infoflöde, från skog till industri, blir digitalt tillgänglig. Det ger nya möjligheter för virkesmätningen som traditionellt sett varit en strikt avgränsad verksamhet. I presentationen beskrivs hur rikstäckande data, via AI-funktioner, används för att effektivisera mätningen och öppna nya möjligheter för värdeoptimerande styrning av virkesflödet.

Tanja Keisu, Peter Lenaers

Does the well-known company name of Anticimex make your thoughts wander away to territories such as AI and digital transformation? Well, if not, then it may be time for you to challenge your old perceptions. Come and learn from Anticimex’s and Avanade’s joint presentation at the Microsoft TechDays 2019!

The world is changing and so is Anticimex. Coming from traditional pest control, Anticimex is rapidly transforming into a digital mindset based on accessible data.

Our presentation demonstrates how the latest technology from Microsoft, in combination with the extensive experience and knowledge within Anticimex, together with the capabilities of internationally recognized IT consultant Avanade, makes it happen.

Combining the Anticimex bug recognition with real time data from your house, historical data from inspection protocols and external data from sources like weather forecasts, results in a platform for making fact-driven decisions that keeps problems, and sometimes even disaster away.

Vad finns det för typ av DNA-tester? Hur kommer de påverka oss som individer, organisationer och, inte minst, sjukvården? Vilka framtids-scenarion ser vi?

Per Söderström

Hur kan vi skydda våra identiteter samt åtkomst till våra organisationsresurser? Förändringen av kontrollperimeter har traditionellt sätt förflyttats från att vara fysisk till att man byggt nätverkskontroller efter att vi kopplat upp våra datorer på nätverk. I en värld där komplexiteten för identitetsreleterade attacker ökar konstant är det viktigt att som organisation anamma en modern IAM-strategi med identiteten som det primärt kontrollplan. 

Denna korta session kommer att beröra hur man som organisation kan modernisera sin IAM-strategi och skydda sig mot identitetsreleterade attacker genom villkorsbaserad åtkomst och intelligent riskdetektering.

Gender equality is a topic widely discussed in the IT world. This is mainly due to the significant lack of women in the branch. Although this is a very important issue to discussing about, it is also as important to mention diversity in those discussions. Diversity encompasses many dimensions and gender equality is only one part of it. In order to achieve a diverse branch, it is not only more women that we need, but rather a diverse group of women. The reason why diversity is especially important in IT is because this is where the future is built. A future where everyone is included. Therefore, it makes sense for diverse people to contribute to their future. I strongly believe that IT is something for everyone because it is not a “know it all” field anymore but rather with the fast growth of technologies, it has become a “learn it all” field. I myself found it very difficult when I first started studying programming at my university. I had to put double amount of hours that my friends were putting and at the end I passed my courses. I am no different than an average girl and as cliché as it sounds, if I can do it, anyone else can.
