The Evolution of Business Software: Focus on the Consumer

September 2nd, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

In the past decade, business software usage has evolved in a number of ways to meet the changing needs of organizations in the digital age.

From how software is delivered to how it is installed and used, the concept of business software is being transformed by a number of cultural and technological developments that are ultimately leading to a shift in mindset: Instead of building software for management usage, it is increasingly being built with a primary focus on the end user.

In this slideshow, Marko Kovac, CEO and founder of Repsly, a B2B SaaS field-activity management company, will highlight the top trends and cultural shifts that stand out as being the driving force behind this change, including software delivery, the mobile boom, social media and Big Data, all of which have ultimately created a consumerization of business software.

Ericsson’s new network software update to pave the road for LTE-U deployments

September 2nd, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is unveiling a new network software update for carriers that will pave the way toward the deployment of LTE-Unlicensed (LTE-U) technology and improve indoor coverage. Ericsson also expects a separate software update will improve deep indoor and rural coverage of Internet of Things devices.

The benefit of the software updates, which Ericsson periodically releases, is they let carriers add enhancements to their networks without having to deploy new hardware, noted Steve Shevell, head of product marketing for Ericsson’s radio business unit.

Shevell said that Ericsson’s Consumer Labs surveys show that only three in 10 consumers find that their voice coverage indoors is sufficient, and that they expect carriers to improve their experience. That will only become more challenging as more data traffic moves indoors as well and as more buildings are constructed from energy-efficient materials that make it more difficult for wireless signals to penetrate.

Some of the key enhancements of Ericsson’s “Networks Software 16A” update, which is designed to improve LTE network performance, include two uplink enhancements that will enable mobile operators to utilize 64 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) on uplink to provide a 50 percent improvement in peak uplink speeds of 75 Mbps. Additionally, it enables uplink carrier aggregation, which can double uplink data speeds. Combined, these improvements provide peak uplink data rates up to 150 Mbps, which is a 200 percent improvement, Ericsson said.

The software update also includes support for LTE-U, which uses LTE on unlicensed spectrum. Along with Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) and T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS) have been among the most vocal proponents of LTE-U. Wi-Fi advocates fear it will interfere and degrade Wi-Fi in unlicensed spectrum, but the LTE-U camp says the concerns are overblown and that LTE-U backers have taken steps to ensure Wi-Fi is not harmed.

Verizon and T-Mobile have both said they intend to launch commercial LTE services into unlicensed spectrum starting next year. The carriers hope to offer customers faster and more reliable data connections by expanding communications from their own licensed spectrum and into unlicensed spectrum.

Shevell said that the 16A software release is expected to be released to carriers in the first few months of 2016 through the company’s software model that offers carriers continual software updates. He said the software will pave the way toward LTE-U deployments. “We’re seeing demand from our customer base for LTE-U,” he said, adding: “The way to deploy it is now clear.”

Ericsson says there are more than 230 million cellular machine-to-machine subscriptions for IoT devices today and the company expects there to be 26 billion connected devices in 2020. However, Shevell noted that there are lot of “roadblocks” to getting there, including cost of devices, limited battery life and weak reception in rural areas and within buildings.

Ericsson’s other release, dubbed “IoT Networks Software 16B,” is designed to reduce IoT device costs through the support of LTE Category 0, which effectively limits functionality and capability to those specifically required for IoT applications, such as large-scale sensor and smart meter deployments. Ericsson claims the reduced complexity cuts device cost by 60 percent compared to LTE Category 4. The vendor also said that the new software will improve IoT device battery life through a power-saving capability that introduces a deep sleep state, while Extended Discontinuous Reception (DRX) for GSM extends the sleep cycles in inactive mode. Further, Ericsson said the software will enhance indoor coverage for GSM solutions to enable the usage of IoT applications in remote locations and deep within buildings underground.

Shevell said those improvements are “relevant to all sorts of IoT use cases,” including transportation, logistics, fleet tracking, smart meters and smart agriculture. “We feel like we can start knocking those roadblocks and laying the foundation for operators to build IoT businesses,” he said. Ericsson said the new IoT software will be available to carriers in mid-2016.

Verona health care software company’s annual gathering is epic

September 2nd, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

The scale of Epic Systems Corp.’s annual gathering of customers — like the perpetual construction at its headquarters here — has become a tangible symbol of one of the state’s most stunning success stories.

The event drew almost 9,000 people this year, and the company’s 11,400-seat auditorium was full on Tuesday morning for an overview on the company’s software for electronic health records and what’s ahead.

The event, which requires busing in people from hotels as far away as Wisconsin Dells, began when Epic was a much smaller company. It’s designed to let customers share ideas on how to make the best use of the company’s software.

Epic scheduled 700 sessions for this year’s event, and nine out of 10 of those sessions will be presented by customers.

“While you are here, learn a lot, have fun, make a plan and, when you go home, take action,” said Judy Faulkner, Epic’s founder and chief executive officer.

Epic, which had $1.8 billion in revenue last year, is one of the two dominant companies selling software for electronic health records. Its customers include most of the country’s prestigious medical centers.

The scale and sophistication of Epic’s software has increased almost exponentially as the company continues to add new features.

Those features can range from modules for behavioral health or long-term care, tools to engage patients and predictive analytics.

The annual event, known as the “user group meeting,” isn’t all work.

Each year’s gather has a theme, and this year’s was a tribute to classic television shows, from “I Love Lucy” to “Cheers.” And the dinner on Tuesday evening, partly held in a massive tent, was to include such activities as Retro Makeovers, Mary Tyler Moore Hat Toss and Lassie Petting Post.

During the day, Epic employees were riding “icicle tricycles” — custom-made freezers attached to bicycles — offering Drumsticks and other ice cream treats to attendees.

Attendance this year was down slightly. But last spring, Epic held its first “expert group meeting” for analysts and system experts, an event that drew 7,500.

Both are too big for a 6,400-seat auditorium that was supplemented several years ago by the larger hall, dubbed the Epicenter.

The auditoriums were built for monthly employee meetings, which were once held in a Madison movie theater. (Employees are still given popcorn and soda for the meetings.)

That was back when Epic had a few hundred employees. It now has about 9,000, and that is up from 6,500 at the end of 2013.

The company has begun work on two more clusters of buildings — its fourth and fifth — at its headquarters set amid rolling farmland south of Madison.

All are connected by underground tunnels.

The scale is impressive — and useful for events that entail feeding 9,000 people.

But it has at least one downside.

“I know people who have been here a month who say they can’t find anything,” one employee said.
