Dublin-based billing software firm Brite:Bill is to create 100 new jobs on foot of winning a major new contract in North America.

The company said it is looking to hire a mix of specialised talent across all areas of its business with an immediate requirement for software developers, system architects and project managers.

The new recruits will be hired over the next two years with half coming on board this year.

Some 75 will be based in its new Dublin headquarters with the remainder in its North American offices.

Founded in Dublin in 2010, Brite:Bill creates software for clients which allows them to provide customised billing, invoices and statements to customers.

Chief executive Alan Coleman said: “These are important new roles and the people who come on board in these jobs will be key in supporting our rapid growth and will help us build and scale the company”.

Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said: “At the heart of our jobs plan is developing a powerful engine of Irish enterprise, and Brite:Bill is a great example of the type of company we are trying to support through our growing programme of overseas activities.”


Harman Buys Car-Software Companies for $950 Million

January 23rd, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Harman International Industries Inc., one of the world’s biggest makers of in-car media systems, has agreed to buy two software companies for $950 million in cash and stock that will facilitate over-the-air computer updates in vehicles.

The Stamford, Conn.-based Harman will buy Mountain View’s Symphony Teleca, which provides integration services, for $780 million and Israel’s Red Bend Software, which specializes in software for connected devices, for $170 million.

Harman is known better for its audio systems Harman-Kardon and JBL, but after the purchase 75% of its products will be software systems.

Harman shares were off less than 1% in morning trading.

The purchase could be a key breakthrough in the automotive industry as companies seek to update outdated media systems, as well as faulty software controlling the engine, transmission and braking systems in vehicles through home-Wi-Fi transmitters. Tesla Motors Inc. already offers this ability in its Model S vehicles, and Ford Motor Co. has promised it in its forthcoming vehicles that have the Sync 3 system.

The Symphony Teleca systems also could be used to create a smartphone based system to update lower-cost vehicles—ones that don’t come with a built-in Wi-Fi transmitter.

“We all have one common problem,” said Harman Chief Executive Dinesh C. Paliwal. “Car makers say, ‘you guys give us tremendous onboard systems … but they all need firmware updates, software updates, application updates. Only smart devices have started to do it. Nobody has been able to do it in cars.”

Harman’s purchase is illustrative of a major shift in the auto industry’s supply base. Traditional parts suppliers are rushing to purchase companies or develop expertise in telecommunications, sensing and computing technology, where they can demand high margins for their products. Meanwhile, the big suppliers are looking to off-load commodity-driven, capital-intensive parts businesses. Big names like Johnson Controls Inc. and Visteon Corp. have been spinning off or selling divisions.

Of the $780 million for Teleca, $382 million will be paid in cash. For Red Bend, $71 million will be in cash and the rest in stock.

Symphony Teleca creates software services for mobile, while Red Bend manufactures software-management technology for connected devices and over-the-air software.

Mr. Paliwal said the acquisition will diversify Harman’s business, adding significant service business that will increase the company’s overall profit margins. In addition, the company will add software engineering talent, some of which will be repurposed to help write code for its automotive systems where there are dramatic shortages of talent.

Symphony Teleca has 8,000 employees, the bulk of which are software engineers, adding a massive resource to the company in an area of dire demand. Hundreds of open positions are unfilled in the U.S. and German for programmers for the company, Mr. Paliwal said.


Move Over, Siri! New Software Could Make Better Personal Assistants

January 23rd, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

You can already use your smartphone to locate the nearest Thai restaurant or find your way to the cheapest parking garage. But soon, you may be able to use your device to plan your entire day — from what bus you should catch in the morning to which restaurant you should swing by on your way to the airport.

A new software program that integrates with a phone’s voice recognition system (such as Apple’s computerized assistant, Siri) serves as both travel adviser and taskmaster. It can tell you what time the next bus will arrive, but it can also tell you to hustle if you’re running late or whether you have time to grab a cup of coffee on your way to the bus stop.

The program, which is being developed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), works by allowing users to specify their preferences — for example, by telling the software if they’re willing to forgo going out for breakfast in order to catch the right bus.

“The idea is that you really have a dialogue with this system. You say what your goals are, and then it says either ‘Yes, I can do it; here’s the plan,’ or, it says, ‘No, I can’t do it — here’s why I can’t, and here are some other options,’” said Brian Williams, a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at MIT and leader of the Model-based Embedded and Robotic Systems (MERS) group, which is developing the software.

The program, known as the Personal Transportation System, or PTS, was originally conceived as a joint project between the MERS group, the Center for the Study of Language and Information at Stanford University and aerospace giant Boeing, Williams told Live Science. Boeing tasked the researchers with creating an interactive system for a so-called Personal Air Vehicle — essentially, an autonomous flying taxi.

To create the PTS, Williams and his team, which included MIT graduate students Peng Yu and Cheng Fang, had to take both timing and safety into consideration.

“If you want a vehicle to fly for you, what does it need to be like? It needs to be safe, which means knowing how you can arrive at your destination on time and how you can arrive without flying into a weather system that might lead to a crash,” Williams said.
