DROPBOX, TEMPAT PENYIMPANAN FILE ONLINE TERBAIK

Anda sudah menggunakan Dropbox? Kalau sudah, berarti pilihan anda sudah sangat tepat. Jika belum, maka Dropbox adalah pilihan terbaik untuk anda.
Apa itu Dropbox?
Dropbox adalah tempat penyimpanan file online. Saat ini, dengan tingkat mobilitas tinggi dan kebutuhan akan akses internet terus meningkat, sehingga akses-akses penyimpanan file online menjadi pilihan utama dikarenakan lebih fleksibel.
Kelebihan Tempat Penyimpanan File Online dari Offline (Falsh Disk/Memori Card)
  1. Dapat diakses dimana saja, selagi terkoneksi dengan internat
  2. Bebas dari virus yang dapat menjangkiti dan merusak file
  3. Tidak ada alasan lupa. Apalagi jika sedang melakukan presentase. Silahkan langsung akses file anda di Dropbox.
  4. Tersedia secara gratis. Untuk Dropbox tersedia 2 GB, dan dapat ditingkatkan menjadi 18 GB gratis jika anda menuruti langkah-langkah yang dianjurkan oleh Dropbox. 18 GB sangat besar bukan? Dibandingkan dengan harga Flash Disk atau Memory card.
Mengapa Pilih Dropbox?
Dari pengalaman saya, saya sudah menggunakan tempat penyimpanan file online bahkan menjadi member Pro (premium/berbayar) seperti Tusfiles, Google Drive. Tempat penyimpanan file tersebut saya tinggalkan karena banyaknya kekurangan.
Saya lebih memilih Dropbox dari tempat penyimpanan file online lainnya dikarenakan:
  • Dropbox lebih fleksibel. Dapat diinstal aplikasinya di Komputer PC maupun Komputer Tablet ataupun HP. Dan dapat dikerjakan secara offline.
  • File-file terjaga keamanannya. File yang sudah terhapus, masih bisa di recall kembali dalam waktu 30 hari. Tidak ada jangka waktu penyimpanan file, bahkan bisa selamanya. Dibandingkan dengan tempat penyimpanan file online lainnya, file akan hilang dalam waktu 30 hari, jika file tersebut tidak ada yang mendownload.
  • Tampilannya menarik dan sangat mudah digunakan. Fitur-fitur yang ada di Dropbox sangat sederhana tetapi lengkap.
  • Tempat penyimpanan filenya Gratis 2 GB dan dapat di upgrade secara gratis hingga 18 GB dengan mengikuti langkah-langkah yang diberikan Dropbox.
  • Tidak ada Iklan. Ini yang membuat saya jatuh cinta dengan Dropbox. Dibandingkan dengan tempat penyimpanan file online lainnya, yang dipenuhi iklan, bahkan orang yang akan mendownload file, yang keluar hanyalah iklan, bahkan terkadang mengandung virus/malware. Iklan tidak akan anda temui di Dropbox.
  • Sangat cocok bagi pekerjaan professional, Mahasiswa, Dosen, maupun untuk file sharing.
  • File-file dapat di share/dibagi dengan orang lain dengan jangka waktu tertentu dengan menggunakan password.
Demikianlah sedikit ulasan, mengapa saya menggunakan Dropbox, sebagai tempat penyimpanan file online saya, walaupun masih banyak kelebihan lainnya.

IMPROVEMENT OF MANGOSTEEN FARMING AND POSTHARVEST HANDLING STRATEGIES BASED ON GLOBAL GAP STANDARD AT KIARA PEDES, PURWAKARTA DISTRICT

ABSTRACT: The  objectives  of  this  research  were  (1)  to  determine  the  value  chain  of  mangosteen  at  Kiara  Pedes  Sub district,  Purwakarta  District,  (2)  to  identify  the  gap  between  actual  condition  at  Kiara  Pedes  and  Global GAP standard, (3) to  identify internal and external factors that can affect the implementation strategy of Global GAP standards, and (4) to develop alternative strategies that can be applied to improve the system of mangosteen cultivation and post harvest handling based on Global GAP standards. The analytical tools being used in this study were value chain analysis, gap analysis, internal and external factor evaluation (IFE, EFE,  IE  matrix),  SWOT  analysis,  and  quantitative  strategic  planning  matrix  (QSPM).  Identified  primary actors  in  mangosteen  value  chain  were  farmers,  middlemen,  suppliers,  exporters,  and  local  and  overseas retailers. Based on IE Matrix and SWOT analysis, the strategies to implement Global GAP standards were (a) to increase mangosteen productivity and improve its quality by using developed cultivation and postharvest technology, (b) to increase productivity, and improve quality and  transportation network in accordance with Global GAP standard, (c) to improve clean water and post-harvest infrastructure through cooperation with exporters and financial institutions, and (d) to improve warehouse and supporting facilities such as packaging and  sanitation  according  to  the  Global  GAP  standard  for  minimizing  the  environmental  constraints.  The most priority strategies from the QSPM analysis were improving clean water and post-harvest infrastructure through cooperation with exporters and financial institutions, followed by using the developed cultivation and postharvest technology to increase mangosteen productivity and improve its quality.

VALUE CHAIN ANALYSIS OF BROILER TO INCREASE COMPETITIVENESS (CASE STUDY AT PT. CHAROEN POKPHAND INDONESIA, TBK)

ABSTRACT: The  objectives  of  this  research  are  to  (1)  map  the  value  chain  in  broiler  at  PT.  Charoen  Pokphand Indonesia, Tbk (CPI); (2) analyze the value chain governance in broiler at CPI; (3) analyze the margin of marketing at broiler industry both on farm or off farm; (3) analyze the gap between the expectation and  the  performance  of  consumers  (farmers)  upon  using  products  of  CPI  and  (4)  recognize  factors influencing competitiveness in broiler industry; and (5) to formulate strategy for value chain upgrading at  CPI    in  order  to  increase  competitiveness  of  broiler.  As  revealed  by  the  value  chain  analysis,  the role of CPI in this value chain is highly significant. All poultry inputs (DOC, feed, veterinary medicine, and poultry equipments) are supplied by CPI. As for downstream sector, CPI processes broiler into its derivatives. The type of value chain governance between feed supplier, DOC, and veterinary medicine, poultry equipment, and poultry derivates belongs to market value chain. Whereas the type of value chain governance between carcass supplier and restaurant belongs to captive value chain. Based on the margin of marketing analysis, the party that gains the lowest margin is farmer and the party that receives the highest margin is the processor. In gap analysis, the lowest attribute of competitiveness is the feed spending and the highest attribute is the spending on veterinary medicine for two months. Factors that influence the competitiveness in poultry industry are condition, demand, industry competition, main industries and supporting industries, and government’s role.

ANALYSIS ON INDONESIAN SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL (ISPO): A QUALITATIVE ASSESSMENT ON THE SUCCESS FACTORS FOR ISPO

ABSTRACT: ISPO (Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil) serves as the baseline of sustainability standards for palm oil industry  and  is  expected  to  improve  the  competitive  advantage  of  Indonesian  palm  oil  industry.  ISPO was  introduced  by  the  government  in  March  2011  and  currently  most  of  plantations  are  in  process  of applying ISPO. The objective of this research is to analyze success factors affecting implementation of ISPO. Using qualitative method of in-depth interview on 20 selected experts representing actors mapped in the value chain of palm oil industry. The results depicted that; very little companies apply sustainable principles hence ISPO is needed for industrial standards, success factors affecting ISPO implementation, and necessary conditions for ISPO implementation. SWOT technique resulting 8 recommended strategies to be applied for ISPO implementation. Acknowledging ISPO applies to upstream industry (plantations and  mills)  only,  managerial  implication  for  this  research  is  the  need  to  develop  of  a  grand  master plan  for  Indonesian  palm  oil  Industry  by  developing  integrated  policies  complementing  ISPO  aiming for sustainability, growing and developing downstream industry to add value to CPO product, and for upstream industry to be developed by farmers and cooperatives while big investors to develop mills and downstream industry.

SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS COMPETITIVENESS: TRANSLATING CONCEPT INTO PRACTICE

ABSTRACT: Globalization  has  proven  to  spur  economic  growth  for  many  countries  in  the  world.  It has, however, also negative impacts in terms of widening income gap, environmental degradation etc.  such  that  many  are  worried  that  the  growth  will  not  be  sustainable.  Triple  bottom  line was introduced to make the economic growth and company competitiveness more sustainable. Although  to  define  the  concept  is  easy,  to  make  it  implemented,  especially  by  developing countries, is another matter. Education and research track by universities is suggested to be one best way to accelerate the implementation of the concept. A case of Graduate Program of Management and Business (MB-IPB) is used to illustrate the attempt.
