Gov’t plans software guideline to protect data

May 27th, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

China is mulling over a five-year software security guideline to safeguard the State secrets and data in key industries, a senior official from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said on Wednesday.

The government will focus on beefing up the safety of software in financial sector and applications used by government departments and State-owned enterprises this year, said Chen Wei, director of the software bureau at the ministry.

Chen did not disclose details of the proposed guideline.

Increasing the ability to keep key information safe is one of the most important tasks the ministry is working on.

The move may prove a new hurdle for overseas vendors as the government- backed projects tend to buy local software due to security concerns.

China is one of the largest software manufacturers in the world. Chen said the annual revenue for the industry is expected to exceed 10 trillion yuan ($1.61 trillion) by around 2021.

The total revenue of the country’s software industry hit 3.7 trillion yuan in last year, a 20 percent jump compared to 2013, data from the ministry showed.

Paragon Software Systems Announces Mobile Proof Of Delivery System

May 27th, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Paragon Software Systems, Inc.,a leader in vehicle routing and scheduling optimization solutions, introduces a mobile proof of delivery and fulfillment system. FleXipod provides real-time information on the status of deliveries, captures essential delivery recipient information including a signature for proof of delivery and provides user tracking via GPS, enhancing visibility of the delivery operation in real-time. The cloud-based solution improves customer service, speeds up invoicing, minimizes disputes, reduces paperwork and can be configured to force driver compliance to regulations and transportation plans.

“Home delivery services are a business that everyone seems to want in on, even though some data shows that it’s hard to be profitable because of failure to meet customer expectations. Failed deliveries and dissatisfied customers can add costs to a company’s already tight transportation budget,” said Wayne Holgate, Senior VP, Product at Paragon Software Systems. “With FleXipod, transport managers can respond in near real-time to any deviations and can act to rectify failed deliveries within minutes. In addition, consumers can be texted with details of the up to date expected delivery time.”

FleXipod is an electronic proof of delivery system that can be implemented using PDA, tablet, and smartphone devices. In addition to traditional electronic proof of delivery functionality, FleXipod enables users to create, manage, deploy and utilize fully configurable data capture forms allowing users to change the driver “workflow” to meet a variety of business requirements. As well as standard required actions following specific task outcomes – signature on screen following successful delivery, additional note capture regarding a damaged installation part, photograph of premises if end client not present and so on – the forms management module allows a further level of data to be captured with the specific details completely under user control.

Job lists are uploaded to a web based central management console, giving a real-time view of jobs and smooth integration with centralized transportation planning systems. Drivers receive up-to-the-minute information of jobs to perform, including amendments made while out on the road. Paperwork is eliminated as FleXipod captures standard proof of delivery data such as signatures and additional information via customizable forms that can be extracted for customer service updates or invoicing. Photographic evidence can be taken to aid customer service requests, such as failed deliveries or damaged products. The fully electronic capture and transfer of data drastically reduces the amount of paperwork and creates a more secure and efficient data management process.

FleXipod incorporates GPS tracking of each device’s exact location so transportation managers can check driver adherence to expected routes and timescales. Recipients can be alerted as to the expected time when a delivery will occur. By tracking and gaining instant updates on deliveries, it is possible to monitor driver performance and instantly respond to failed deliveries or delays, improving customer service and enhancing business processes. FleXipod integrates with invoicing systems to speed up invoicing capabilities and improve cash flow.

FleXipod also integrates with Paragon’s HDX, a home delivery management and route optimization solution that analyzes all the existing deliveries scheduled, resource availability and route planning parameters, then calculates the best delivery time to offer customers, within seconds. “By increasing first-time delivery success, maximizing drops per vehicle, reducing time spent on problem solving and putting the customer in control of their order, HDX can help companies improve service levels and reduce transportation costs,” adds William Salter, CEO and President, Paragon Software Systems. “With the addition of FleXipod, the HDX suite can include comprehensive proof of delivery and driver tracking to reduce paperwork, admin resource and improve customer services.”

Wikibon: Software redefines competition

May 27th, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Software is becoming the focus not just of IT but often of the business, as smartphones and the Web become increasingly central to customers’ lives and therefore an important conduit for providing products and services in multiple markets. New software technologies and methodologies can make business much more agile and better able to respond to market disruptions that are becoming increasingly common.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) shields developers from underlying hardware architecture, allowing them to focus completely on software and freeing companies from single vendor or service provider lock-in, Wikibon Analyst Stuart Miniman in his latest Wikibon Premium Alert. They support new software approaches such as micro-services that contribute to increased business agility.

Many of the early PaaS offerings, including Salesforce.com, Inc.’s Heroku, Windows Azure and the Google App Engine, are language-centric. Newer platform offerings, including Cloud Foundry, OpenShift, Docker and the even newer Unstructured PaaS systems, are multi-language and battling for developer mindshare.

Of these, Cloud Foundry is emerging as a leading open source platform and ecosystem for new cloud-native applications. Software built on it can run on any of the major infrastructure-as-a-Service platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, Google Compute Engine and IBM Softlayer. Originally an open-source project from VMware, Inc., Cloud Foundry was spun off to Pivotal Software, Inc. and now operates under the independent Cloud Foundry Foundation. This makes it fully open source, allowing multiple groups and vendors, including Pivotal, IBM, SAP SE, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard Co., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Intel, Canonical, Ltd., Cisco Systems, Inc. and VMware, to contribute. It also supports multiple development languages, which enables a broader range of applications to be developed. All of this greatly reduces single-vendor lock-in.

Adapting disruptive technology

Traditional enterprises need to pay attention to the new software-centric approach to business, Miniman says. Increasing numbers of vertical markets are being disrupted by startups like Uber, Inc., AirBnB, Inc., Square, Inc., Tesla Motors, Inc., Esurance Insurance Services, Inc. and Twitter, Inc., that use highly agile, software-based business models to compete with established players. Too many companies believe they can re-architect old applications. Instead, writes Miniman, they need to focus on smaller incremental approaches and new application development.

DevOps is the operating model of successful software-centric enterprises, and all companies need to learn how to work with open source, both as a licensing model and as part of developer communities. Miniman recommends that enterprises engage expertise from vendors in the cloud-native and PaaS communities to gain knowledge transfer and early wins.

Miniman’s full Alert, “Cloud Foundry Guides Enterprise IT Toward Cloud Native Applications” is available without charge on the new Wikibon Premium Web site.
