The unfinished books of Sir Terry Pratchett have been destroyed by a steamroller, following the late fantasy novelist’s wishes.

Terry Pratchett docudrama reveals moment author realised he was 'dead'
Read more
Pratchett’s hard drive was crushed by a vintage John Fowler & Co steamroller named Lord Jericho at the Great Dorset Steam Fair, ahead of the opening of a new exhibition about the author’s life and work.

Pratchett, famous for his colourful and satirical Discworld series, died in March 2015 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

After his death, fellow fantasy author Neil Gaiman, Pratchett’s close friend and collaborator , told the Times that Pratchett had wanted “whatever he was working on at the time of his death to be taken out along with his computers, to be put in the middle of a road and for a steamroller to steamroll over them all”.

The news reports that hate groups are growing in size as well as voice is confounding in many ways and deeply disturbing.
First, what does it mean in a person’s life that they get out of bed every morning thinking first and most passionately about the people or groups that bring hate to the mind and heart? Guided by the core of hate, the day passes with anger, hostility and aggression underlying all activities. I know that for some the hate comes from a real or presumed situation. Jobs and economic stability are, and have been for decades, at the core of some of the hatred. It has always been presumed that immigrants willing to work for low wages have taken jobs away from the working class already residing in the United States. So those who are unemployed blame the immigrant or the stranger or the one who is willing to work for low wages. The facts of the situation and the path forward elude the one who is hating because it is always easier to blame others for our problems.

Second, what does it mean in a person’s life that they blame other individuals or groups for their problems? The working world is changing at a pace so rapid it is hard for anyone to keep up. Factories have moved out of the country but those remaining are no longer hiring at the rate or the salary base of even 20 years ago. Robotics and 21st century technology have taken as many unskilled or basic skilled jobs as moving offshore. Statistics are hard to find but it is clear that the factories remaining in the United States do not need the workforce numbers they did even 20 years ago. Blaming other workers for the problem of unemployment might feel good for a while but it is not only wrong but unproductive. A person who wants a good future needs to find ways to become employable — more education or training being the best route to employability. The workforce required by our businesses needs to be skilled, be it mechanical, computer hardware or software, or something else. An example of this problem is the coal mining industry. Coal mining as a profession is finished, much like blacksmithing it is a relic of a bygone era. Coal miners are the current workforce in need of new opportunities. There are so many possibilities for these hard workers but the current government cannot get out of its own way to support new work.

Third, in the 1970’s Alvin Toffler wrote a book called “Future Shock.” He defined this as a condition found in both individuals and entire societies suffering “too much change in too short a time.” Toffler and others posited that in the near future workers would no longer be employed by the same company or even in the same profession for the entirety of their working lives. The estimate was every five years for changing jobs and often careers. Flexibility is the key personally and multi-skilled the key professionally.

Selon la Banque Mondiale, 6 milliards de téléphones portables seraient en circulation. Cela représente 75% de la population terrestre. Des chiffres en constante augmentation qui devraient rapidement atteindre le ratio d’un téléphone portable par être humain.Le succès des téléphones portables et autres smartphones n’est pas prêt de s’arrêter. A en croire la Banque Mondiale, 75% des êtres humains auraient désormais un téléphone portable, et les chiffres continueraient d’augmenter.“Dans le monde, le nombre d’abonnements à la téléphonie mobile – sur forfait ou prépayés – est passé de moins de 1 milliard en 2000 à plus de 6 milliards aujourd’hui, dont près de 5 milliards dans les pays en développement” explique la Banque Mondiale. D’après elle, le ratio d’un téléphone portable par terrien devrait très vite être dépassé.

“La téléphonie mobile offre de formidables opportunités en fournissant un accès basique aux informations en matière de santé, en permettant de régler en espèces, en favorisant la création d’emplois et en stimulant la participation des citoyens au processus démocratique.” Pour toutes ces raisons, les téléphones portables et en particulier les smartphones sont devenus très populaires dans les pays du tiers monde. Que ce soit dans les pays d’Afrique du Nord durant le printemps arabe, en Chine durant les Jeux Olympiques ou dans les pays d’Asie du Sud Est durant les inondations, les smartphones ont beaucoup servi, que ce soit pour capturer des photos, des vidéos ou partager des statuts qui ont parfois permis l’acheminement des secours. Pour beaucoup, les téléphones portables sont devenus des biens de première nécessité.

Lorsque le temps est venu de faire son choix parmi des dizaines de smartphones différents, il peut être fort difficile de trouver celui qui vous ira comme un gant. Le plus souvent, le public se base sur la réputation des constructeurs, sur les conseils du vendeur, voire sur les tendances dans son cercle d’amis. Pour vous aider à faire votre choix de manière un peu plus délicate, nous vous avons concocté un petit dossier… Les smartphones sont de plus en plus nombreux, variés et proposent des fonctionnalités multiples.Pour beaucoup, c’est l’étape la plus importante. La Belgique ne proposant pas d’offres d’abonnement permettant d’acquérir le dernier iPhone à 1€ ou le Galaxy S3 à 1 cent, il faut impérativement limiter son budget. Les adolescents optent généralement pour des smartphones entrée de gamme (entre 85 et 150€), tandis que les jeunes travailleurs ont un budget beaucoup plus large (250 à 500€), les mordus de technologie peuvent dépenser des fortunes et les adultes qui ne s’intéressent que très peu aux smartphones prennent généralement le modèle le moins cher – se traduisant en paroles par le traditionnel “du moment que ça téléphone et permet d’envoyer des SMS…”

De notre point de vue, il vaut mieux étendre son budget, pour éviter de rechanger de téléphone 6 mois plus tard, sous prétexte qu’on en a déjà fait le tour ou qu’il ne nous convenait pas tout à fait. Élargir ses horizons est toujours une bonne chose, même si au final, on retourne à quelque chose de plus traditionnel…L’utilisateur lambda aura sans doute tendance à opter pour un smartphone entrée de gamme, avec des appareils qu’on trouve facilement à partir de 60€ et qui proposent déjà toutes les fonctionnalités de base qu’on est en droit d’attendre de la part d’un téléphone portable : emails, Facebook, téléphoner, envoi de SMS, jeux, 2G, appareil photo, Wifi et parfois même GPS. Plus les prix grimpent, les plus options fournies avec le smartphone sont modernes, avec l’ajout par exemple de la 3G, d’Office, d’un GPS intégré, d’un écran ultra-résistant, etc. etc.

De quel type de smartphone avez-vous besoin? Si vous n’envoyez que des SMS et vous connectez à Facebook deux fois par jour, un appareil à 65€ peut amplement suffire. En revanche, si vous êtes un mordu de photographie et voulez un appareil qui tienne la comparaison avec un compact, pour pouvoir capturer le moment présent et le partager sur les réseaux sociaux instantanément, alors il vous faudra un appareil nettement plus performant… Chaque smartphone ou presque a des atouts exclusifs qui le rendent plus intéressant qu’un autre en fonction de vos besoins.De notre point de vue, il peut être intéressant de dresser une liste des fonctionnalités que vous aimeriez retrouver dans votre future acquisition, voire de vous poser quelques questions:Pas de secret, il vous faut un appareil 3G ou 4G. Dans ce cas de figure, il y a moyen de trouver des appareils à partir de 150€, mais pour profiter pleinement des formules data, avec téléchargement d’apps, jeux, GPS, etc., mieux vaut investir pour un appareil milieu de gamme (250€).De plus en plus d’appareils proposent une armature renforcée, notamment pour les sportifs. On en trouve facilement à 250€, et ils sont parfois équipés d’écrans ultra-résistants. Pour 85€, vous aurez généralement un smartphone assez résistant niveau coque mais disposant d’un écran qui se griffe beaucoup plus facilement.

Le processeur a ici toute son importance. Un appareil de type Asha vous permettra tout à fait de jouer, mais pas aux dernières révolutions techniques. Mieux vaut donc opter dans ce cas de figure pour un iPhone, un Android milieu de gamme ou un Windows Phone, bien que le catalogue de jeux de ce dernier soit encore limité.De plus en plus de constructeurs proposent des appareils waterproof. Et si l’appareil que vous convoitez tant n’est pas disponible dans ce modèle, sachez qu’il existe des solutions pour étanchéifier votre smartphone. Cela ne signifie pas pour autant que vous pourrez plonger à -50 mètres avec lui durant des heures, mais cela sera suffisant en cas d’accident ou de chute dans l’eau.De plus en plus d’appareils proposent des écrans de plus grande taille. Vous pouvez le demander à ceux qui en possèdent un : difficile de revenir à un plus petit modèle une fois qu’on est passé au XXL. Les smartphones à écran large demeurent cependant généralement plus chers que la moyenne.Lorsque vous essayez les différents modèles, comparez-les toujours aux photos prises avec un iphone 4S. Si les photos sont de moins bonne qualité, elles feront sans doute pâle figure sur les réseaux sociaux d’ici un an. Une bonne optique coûte cependant assez cher puisqu’il faut débourser au minimum 300€ pour des photos de bonne qualité sur smartphone.

 Battery for Asus A32-N62 Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Because the keyboard is weighted (the battery takes care of that), it shifts the centre of gravity back, so the hallmark "woah it's going to tip backwards" that characterises all prior Surfaces doesn't apply here.That said, I suspect that the Surface ("the clipboard" in Microsoft's language) will stay docked in the keyboard almost all of the time – coming out only for movies and TV. Or in my case, for the kids to demand Fresh Paint. (Note: if you think I'm opinionated wait 'til you hear my kids' views on the design changes to Fresh Paint between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. You'll really get an earful.)The keyboard itself is absolutely stellar for typing. The keys have a deep and firm travel, and bounce right back at you, a little like the famously clacky IBM Model M keyboards used to do. But quieter, obviously – it doesn't sound like a hundred rat traps going off at once. The Surface Book's keyboard has a key for the Context menu and weirdly, an Alt Graph (Alt Gr) key, a throwback to pre-GUI IBM PCs.The keyboard houses its own Mini Display port, an SD card slot, and two USB 3.0 ports. The keyboard is where you charge this critter, although both keyboard and "clipboard" have their own batteries. More of that in a moment.Like the display it hosts, the keyboard is made of a magnesium alloy that feels slightly other worldly. It's like a metal, but is too light to be a metal (it really is a metal, though). My only grumbles with it are that there's no island for a set of Home/End/PgUp/PgDn keys. Microsoft reserves the two brightness keys for dimming the backlit keyboard – you have to use Fn + Delete and Fn + Backspace to control the screen brightness.

As with Google and Nexus, Microsoft gets to control the entire experience – no OEM crapware. Except you do get Flipboard and Candy Crush Soda Saga, and possibly some other stuff you didn't want. Who has the power? Microsoft tells me that the Surface Book should last for 12 hours. And here it gets complicated, because it's very hard to tell. Officially, the Surface Book discharges the capacity of the base-keyboard part first, then only when the base is low, taps into the display battery's power reservoir. Charging, it's the other way around, mostly: it charges the display part first and the base a little bit too. The reality is that based on the instrumentation, it's hard to tell. The Surface Book takes its time giving you a report on how much time you've got left.One factor is that when clipped together, the Nvidia card is in use, which saps more power. Much more so, obviously, if you're gaming. I found the power reporting let things down generally. Not only is it reluctant to give you an estimate, but the estimates vary wildly.

The second screenshot is taken a few minutes after the first, with no change in workload or screen brightness.Surface wouldn't be Surface without a few glitches. The first time I used the Eject button, it released the Display portion with a satisfying click. (Which is actually an audio file). And it worked the second time. But it hasn't worked once since. Infuriatingly, Surface Book wouldn't tell you what was causing it to maintain its Rottweiler grip on the display, the red LED merely indicating that you shouldn't. You can do a Vulcan nerve pinch to reset everything but it requires a reboot.Here's another, something the latest version of Photoshop caught. The Nvidia card actually has 1GB of RAM, but Photoshop is confused. Performance was excellent – which is to say, smooth sailing until stalled by Windows 10's randomness. Pages load incredibly fast but it just isn't as smooth as native code should be, with inexplicable, second-long freezes. (Sometimes several seconds.)This is the top-of-the-range model, but newer Intel chips are now available because it's taken so long for a UK Surface Book to... uh, Surface.

I liked my time with the Surface Book, and grew to like it more as I got used to the heft and quirks. But with top performance and outstanding features in convertibles half the price, you really are paying a premium for Surface exclusivity that might make Apple blush.An attendee at the KubeCon Kubernetes conference in London has exposed a serious lack of network security in the hotel where he was staying.Matthew Garrett, a security researcher for CoreOS and a board member of the Free Software Foundation, was in his hotel when he noticed the establishment had replaced the light switches with little Android pads to control lighting and other room functions.Being of a technical mien, he borrowed a couple of USB Ethernet adapters and set up a transparent bridge between the tablet and the wall so that his laptop could analyse the traffic between the two.Using popular protocol analyzer Wireshark he discovered that the tablet was running the Modbus control protocols, which don't use authentication controls, and after finding the IP address the tablet was using, Garrett was able to control his room's controls.

"Then I noticed something. My room number is 714. The IP address I was communicating with was They wouldn't, would they? I mean yes obviously they would," he wrote in a blog post."It's basically as bad as it could be – once I'd figured out the gateway, I could access the control systems on every floor and query other rooms to figure out whether the lights were on or not, which strongly implies that I could control them as well."It might seem that this isn't too serious. Jokers could wake people up by turning their lights on and off in the middle of the night perhaps, but a thief could also get an idea of whether a room was occupied by checking the status of its room controls.This isn't the first time something like this has come up. In a 2014 presentation at Black Hat, researcher Jesus Molina, a former chair of the Trusted Computing Group, found he could do the same thing to all the rooms in the St Regis hotel in the Chinese city of Shenzhen.In both cases, neither researcher tried to get into other systems on the hotel network, such as billing or reservations, but given the lamentable state of the control system it's not outside the realm of possibility that some serious damage could be done.

Hotel hacking is something that's coming under increasing scrutiny by researchers and some hotel groups. Back in 2012, another Black Hat presentation showed how easy it was to reprogram electronic door keys in hotels. One hotelier then sued the manufacturer of the keys, claiming his guests had been robbed using the technique. In this article I'm going to talk about the second most important aspect of being an IT manager or engineer. “The second?” I hear you cry. Yes, the second, because the most important aspect is terribly dull and doesn't take 800 words to describe: safety. (And if you think I'm mad, ask yourself whether you'd break down the door of your secure data store to rescue the guy inside in the event of a fire).The second most important aspect, then, is security. And that statement will annoy the hell out of business people (IT systems' purpose is to help them make money), system engineers (their purpose is to keep systems running and reliable), users (they need to be able to do their jobs efficiently and accurately and expect the systems to help them do that), customers (they want the online store to be snappy and deliver their order the same day where possible), … well, pretty much anyone.As we all know, IT is one of those areas that only really gets noticed for its negative aspects. The beancounters see it as a cost centre and want to know why we can't get another year's use from the printers (hey, if they've coped for seven years surely another one won't make a difference).

The users only call IT when they can't get in, even if it's their own dumb fault for forgetting their mother's birthday and locking themselves out after three incorrect password attempts (then, given the chance, blaming IT when their mother didn't get a card).The thing is, though, the same applies to security. And I'm not just talking about IT security – I mean security and corporate governance in general. And as with IT, the tangible benefit of security is generally pretty negligible … so let's look at some examples of how the downsides of security can completely nobble the best efforts of even the most efficient, effective parts of your company and your systems.Politeness is your enemy. There's only one sin greater than swiping yourself into the building with your electronic pass and then holding the door open for a colleague, and that's doing the same but holding the door open for a stranger. I saw someone do that when I worked in the defence industry and the stranger was a security auditor, and it wasn't pretty. Even if you've known your colleague for years, how do you know he or she wasn't fired an hour ago? Helpfulness is also your enemy. How many times has your Service Desk reset someone's password when the latter has phoned in to say they're locked out?

And how many times have the Service Desk guys thought to themselves: “I wonder if that really was John Smith”? The good guys suffer for the bad guys. If you have a staffer under investigation for misusing IT equipment and they end up using someone else's login to carry out their sins (and the audit trail is full of the innocent party's login ID), you can't discipline the bad guy without also disciplining the “innocent” party for disclosing their credentials. Sales people are cowboys. Okay, that's probably an unfair generalisation … most sales people are cowboys. It doesn't matter if you bend the rules a little bit when (say) you borrow a colleague's password when you can't get in on the remote access service to download and print the contract you're trying to get signed. That's fine on the surface as it gets the job done, but these days it's highly likely that the customer who's watching you do it is thinking: “Hey, when they filled in that due diligence questionnaire, they said they didn't cut corners like this ...” Does it affect users? Yes, if you fire them for gross misconduct if they illicitly send confidential information to a third party. But it certainly affects them if there's a big breach of security on the website, the press finds out, the share price hits the floor and an asset-stripper picks up the remains in a fire-sale and points 90 per cent of the staff to the dole queue. And customers? Well, ask companies like TalkTalk what happens to the customer base and the bottom line when you have a nice, juicy security breach or two (and if you're not able to ask them, check out The Reg's story about it). Security, then, has to be an absolutely core consideration for your organisation. After all, it's even worse than IT. At least with IT you get the occasional nice comment from a user when you give them a cool new laptop or you announce that the standard corporate mobile device for next year is the next-edition iPhone. The same can't be said of security: I can't recall any of my users ever saying: “Yay, what a neat RSA token!” or “Hey, I just thought of a fab password with at least one upper case character and some funky punctuation!”

But security/governance is as bad as IT in general when things go wrong: to paraphrase Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: when they are bad, they are horrid. Users ought to upgrade following the discovery of a flaw in Samsung’s software update tool that opens the door to man-in-the-middle attacks.Security shortcomings in Samsung SW Update Tool, which analyses the system drivers of a computer, were discovered by Core Security. Following the discovery of this vulnerability, Core Security recommended Samsung encrypt and validate the information users download in updates.Version of the tool was vulnerable, said Joaquín Rodríguez Varela, a senior security researcher from Core Security CoreLabs Team, who discovered the vulnerability. Flaws in this version of the software meant both cleartext transmission of sensitive information and, worse yet, insufficient verification of data authenticity. The issue created the potential for hackers to impersonate Samsung before serving up dodgy software updates.Samsung has issued a patched version of the affected software.Rodríguez commented: These vulnerabilities in Samsung SW Update Tool could allow a malicious user to read and modify the requests made both by the user and by the Samsung servers and potentially allow such user to infect the victim with a malware or a remote access tool and gain control over its machine.

After our report, Samsung implemented a ciphered communication between the tool and its servers and also a verification mechanism of the downloaded drivers, he added.An advisory by Core Security explained the vulnerability in greater depth can be found here. El Reg invited Samsung’s PR representatives to comment on the discovery on Thursday but we’ve yet to hear back from the South Korean electronics giant.Core Security notified the electronics giant on 22 January. Samsung, after what would appear to be some foot-dragging, promised to release patches in early March. clearing the way for the researchers to go public with their findings. The Precision line of Dell’s one-time skunkworks Ubuntu developer PCs, Project Sputnik, has hit worldwide availability.Project mastermind Barton George, senior technologist at the office of Dell's CTO, announced availability of the Precision line of Ubuntu workstations with the US launch of the fifth generation of XPS 13 developer edition.The fifth-generation XPS 13 comes preloaded with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 6th Gen Intel Core processor and updated divers, tools and utilities.The XPS comes in three i7 configurations – 8GB, QH+T Intel 8260, and two i7 16GB configurations with 512GB and 1TB.

Their availability comes just ahead of Canonical's anticipated release of Ubuntu 16.04LTS release, due next month. Dell plans to support this latest Linux initially as an upgrade but there’s no date, yet, for support as a factory installation.The Precision family, meanwhile, consists of three workstations – the 5510, 3510 and 7510. This being Dell, you pick Ubuntu at the customize and buy stage of ordering via its website.Global availability comes four years after Dell began work on the Ubuntu machines under the Project Sputnik name, as a project exploring the ideal developer laptop.Work on Project Sputnik began in 2012 after it was pitched to a Dell internal innovation fund by George, who gained just $40,000 of funding. George has a background of engagement with open source communities and developers on behalf of big tech firms. The project went public in May 2012, with a public beta and first XPS being released in autumn that year. However, Lenovo posted the strongest shipment growth, up 8.2% from the fourth quarter in 2011, while HP was flat and Dell slid 21%.Across Europe, HP had a much stronger lead over Lenovo, with a 19% market share over its Chinese rival's 11%. However, HP's shipments were down 8.3%, and Lenovo was the only PC firm to post growth in Europe, with a whopping 29% leap.

The end of the year is a key sales period for PC makers, but the fourth quarter of 2012 saw overall shipments slide even further, down 4.6% globally and 9.6% in Europe.Shortly after the American College of Education (ACE) in Indiana fired IT administrator Triano Williams in April, 2016, it found that it no longer had any employees with admin access to the Google email service used by the school.In a lawsuit [PDF] filed against Williams in July, 2016, the school alleges that it asked Williams to return his work laptop, which was supposed to have the password saved. But when Williams did so in May that year, the complaint says, the computer was returned wiped, with a new operating system, and damaged to the point it could no longer be used.ACE claimed that its students could not access their Google-hosted ACE email accounts or their online coursework.The school appealed to Google, but Google at the time refused to help because the ACE administrator account had been linked to William's personal email address.

By setting up the administrator account under a non-ACE work email address, Mr Williams violated ACE's standard protocol with respect to administrator accounts, the school's complaint states. ACE was unaware that Mr Williams' administrator account was not linked to his work address until after his employment ended.According to the school's court filing, Williams, through his attorney, said he would help the school reinstate its Google administrator account, provided the school paid $200,000 to settle his dispute over the termination of his employment.That amount is less than half the estimated $500,000 in harm the school says it has suffered due to its inability to access its Google account, according to a letter from William's attorney in Illinois, Calvita J Frederick.Frederick's letter claims that another employee set up the Google account and made Williams an administrator, but not the controlling administrator. It says the school locked itself out of the admin account through too many failed password attempts.Williams, in a counter-suit [PDF] filed last month, claims his termination followed from a pattern of unlawful discrimination by the school in the wake of a change in management.In a phone interview with The Register, Frederick said she filed a federal lawsuit in Illinois against the school, which has yet to respond. We would hope that the [school's] action in Indianapolis would be viewed as retaliation, which we believe it was, and that judgement would be vacated and we would prevail in the discrimination claim.

Pointing to the complaint she filed with the court in Illinois, Frederick said Williams wrote a letter [PDF] to a supervisor complaining about the poor race relations at the school and, as a result of that letter, he was told he had to relocate to Indianapolis. That's how the whole thing started, she said. His working remotely has always been a condition of his employment.The school, she said, knew he could not do that because of parental obligations requiring him to remain in Illinois.Frederick said the school has been subject to several discrimination claims over the past two years. It's a sad situation, she said.The complaint filed by Williams alleges he, as an African American, was paid less than workers of other racial or ethnic backgrounds.Rather than support Williams in his position of IT Systems Administrator, Defendants intentionally discriminated against Williams by refusing to allow Williams to participate in work-related training; paying Williams less than his co-workers, subjecting Williams to unwarranted scrutiny, refusing to promote Williams to management – all the while requiring him to perform the job of manager – holding secret meetings so as to hide the promotion of others from Williams, making it uncomfortable, humiliating and almost impossible for Williams to do the job he was assigned to do, Williams' complaint says.

It further alleges that Williams' objections to unfair treatment brought retaliation, like the requirement that he track all his duties and time in 15 minute increments, something only one other employee, another African American, was required to do.Williams, according to court documents, resides in Illinois due to a joint parenting agreement and had for years been allowed to work remotely under his contract with ACE. The school's actions against him, his complaint suggests, are retaliatory.In September, the Marion County Superior Court judge hearing the school's case in Indiana issued a default judgement of almost $250,000 after Williams did not appear in court, according to the Indianapolis Star.Frederick said she could not immediately confirm the details of the judgement in Indiana. ACE's attorneys were not immediately available to address the issue.Williams' complaint claims he cannot afford to represent himself in Indiana and has been unable to obtain legal representation there.In an emailed statement, Melissa Markovsky, senior director of communications and marketing for ACE, said the school has a policy of not commenting on pending legal issues.

As this case is moving through the court system, we are not able to discuss the lawsuit at this time, she said. What we can affirm is that we have taken steps to ensure that our information technology policies are more effectively implemented moving forward in order to mitigate a future circumstance similar to this incident.Belgian data governance business Collibra has today announced the closure of its Series C round, almost tripling its venture capital funding.Collibra was founded in 2008, but as a European company did not follow the typical Valley model of growth and was, according to CEO and co-founder Felix Van de Maele, already cash-flow positive/profitable before its Series B funding round led by Index Ventures.Van de Maele told The Register that, at the time of its Series B, the company jumped at the opportunity to go into growth mode. Van de Maele added that the business didn't expect to raise [this Series C round], but got a lot of inbound interest from investors and decided to pursue the opportunity to build a category defining company.Leading the unexpected $50m round of funding — which has taken total venture investment in the company to over $75m — was the exclusive billionaires' investment advisory group, Iconiq Capital, which Collibra has provided with a board seat to be occupied by general partner Matt Jacobson.

Iconiq Capital, which counts Mark Zuckerberg, Lakshmi Mittal and Jack Dorsey among its muchos-moneyed members, describes itself as a global multi-family office and merchant bank for a group of influential families.Also joining the board, as an observer, is general partner at Battery, Dharmesh Thakker. Battery had participated in the round alongside return backers Dawn Capital, Index Ventures and Newion Investments.Van de Maele told The Register that Collibra would be spending the $50m accelerating the business's investment in growth, which he added has seen it grow from about 70 to 200 people in the last year and triple its revenue in the same time to between 10 and 100 million.Collibra is seeing a lot of use-cases for data governance, according to Van de Maele, across a lot of verticals and not just its bread-and-butter territory of compliance within the financial industries.Growth will remain on the cards for now, the CEO said, stating that while there was a plan to profitability based on this round, there always is.So that's what we're executing against, he continued, and while there may be more funding rounds in the future, there's no plans for such rounds at the moment.
