Mastering Opportunities and Risks in IT Projects

tredition


Management Systems are required for a wide variety of purposes. This includes the management of a company as well as the control of an IT project or the adherence to a quality, environmental or information security standard. They show objectives and provide to the management proven methods for achieving them, as well as the associated control and monitoring mechanisms.

This book describes how the generally necessary core process of risk management works within such a management system. The main feature of the model is the cyclical repetition of the identification and evaluation of opportunities and risks, resulting in the taking of all necessary control measures, in particular the application of appropriate options for risk treatment. Another feature is its continuous improvement. The book deals with the economics of risk management and provides suggestions for optimization using proven IT methods such as standardization and automation.

A Melody Called Peace

tredition


We have experienced such enormous developments in different fields of science and technology, sending Space Shuttles to outer space and discovering the microscopic germs hidden in the textures of the elements; A Melody Called Peace is here to make such progresses in the very core of our hearts and to remind us once more that literature and art can bridge the souls of strangers and bless them with the sweet taste of peace and love.

This book is the result of a massive international collaboration between poets, authors and artists from different parts of the world who answered the invitation call of the messengers of peace and civilization, we, the authors and participants, believe that peace is the result of the reconciliation of the opposites and poetry - in its simple but rich form - and has the ability to convey the genuine and common concerns of all humankind living in different parts of the world while they hold different beliefs.

A Melody Called Peace, like a big and glamorous lantern, shines the light once more on the shadows which have tarnished the beloved peace; the melody of dozens of poets and authors will fondle the hearts of the residents of the world, reminding them of this famous phrase: Nil Desperandum!

And finally, Gloria in altissimis Deo et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis!

Born on the 28th of January, 1996, in a family that loves art, literature and history. Ellias soon found his taste in literature and especially poetry. He wrote his first limerick when he was 12 years old.

Later on, when he was 14, books like “the peace book“ by Todd Parr, “let there be peace on earth: and let it begin with me“ by Jill Jackson and Sy Miller, and “What does peace feel like?“ by Vladimir Radunsky helped him to get familiar with the essence of peace. Reading poems by Calude Mckay, Wendell Berry and Robert Frost at that age inspired him to start writing poems in a more serious way. Sonnets of Shakespeare were also good sources of inspiration for him. So when he was 16, Ellias wrote a book called “International Poems Collection”. The book got the first provincial place in the most famous competition of inventions in Iran, “Kharazmi”, and the fifth place in the country competition, yet to be the only project of its kind. This book received confirmations from the University of Isfahan and now is being preserved in the ministry of science and research and technology.

The next year, Ellias with the cooperation of two hardworking and creative friends (Hosein Heidari and Hooman Danesh), wrote another poetry book called „A Path to Salvation“. This book also won Kharazmi awards. His Excellency, Dr. Zarif, wrote a thanks letter for Ellias for the book since it includes some nice and extraordinary elements of literature, humanity, peace and international relations.

In 2015, he was the only Asian representative in the second anniversary of Mandela, in Johannesburg, and it was after this event that he published the book “Peace Poems” which was confirmed by the archive center of the aforementioned institute. Before his trip, during a personal meeting with the South Africa minister of art and culture, his projects were praised and he was given the Robben Island Treasure-icon in advance. Returned to Iran, he was invited to give a lecture on the Mandela and their project in the United Nation, Iranian Branch in Tehran with the presence of the Iranian minister of art and culture and other officials.

Later on, he and Paul Amrod collaborated on the longest modern epic in the history of English literature called „Adventures of two captains, volume one”. The book has been published by the most credible publishing house in Iran named Janagl Javidan. They are currently working on the second volume and even write an opera based on the series.
