Functional Safety Forum 2015

Intland Blog - Tue, 07/07/2015 - 11:00
IEC 61508 is the mother of all standards for functional safety. Many standards including ISO 13849, ISO 26262 or IEC 61511 are derived from IEC 61508. These standards are relatively complex but they need to be used in practice, no matter how complex

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Tue, 05/19/2015 - 16:30
Webinar

Software suppliers and device manufacturer are coming under ever increasing pressure to create faster, more feature-rich and more secure products. To compete in today’s dynamic marketplace, technology suppliers today look to open source software (OSS).   But while key to rapid development and deployment, increasing use of open source brings its own set of technical and logistical challenges:

  • How can developers sift through the millions of available OSS components to find the right ones for their applications and devices?
  • What are the best practices for developers in integrating, deploying and maintaining open source alongside their own software and other third-party components?
  • How can development organizations protect themselves and their customers from security vulnerabilities that emerge on a regular basis in widely-deploy OSS components?

Mellanox Technologies: Driving Quality, Security and Compliance

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 14:30
Webinar

As open source software (OSS) continues to work its way rapidly through the IT world, organizations’ use of OSS has ongoing potential to introduce compliance challenges and security vulnerabilities into critical applications. Organizations integrating OSS look to many sources for code. Some sources of OSS are more reliable than others, and determining code origin can be difficult. As Gartner analyst Mark Driver notes, “IT organizations cannot ignore the influence and presence of OSS in their technology road maps (planned or unplanned). Those that do so place themselves at risk for technical and legal nightmare scenarios, and/or miss out on significant competitive benefits.”

Join Alon Hilu, IP Counsel for Mellanox Technologies and Bill Weinberg, Director of OSS Strategy at Black Duck as they discuss the Mellanox approach to Open Source Logistics

  • Best practices for selecting and ingesting OSS for integration into products and distribution to customers and partners
  • How to build a scalable OSS approval workflow system that streamlines and automates the selection and approval processes

VA Changes Rules for RFPs – What can you do about it?

VisibleThread - Wed, 04/15/2015 - 13:06

VA Changes Rules for RFP
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) released an RFP that has sent a shockwave through the proposal management community. The RFP is this: VA118-15-R0558 for information technology services.

In the RFP, the VA states,“ Notably, the RFP expressly prohibits offerors from using consultants to assist them in preparing their sample task responses. Id. at 119. In this regard, the RFP requires an offeror to certify, using a form provided with the RFP, that its sample task responses were prepared only by the offeror and its subcontractors, provided that any such subcontractor has entered into a contractor team arrangement (CTA) with the offeror and is identified in the offeror’s management proposal. Id. The RFP provides that the agency will not consider proposals which do not include the certification or which provide a falsified certification.”

In simple terms, this means that offerors for this RFP cannot use proposal consultants’ services. Not surprisingly the APMP (Association of Proposal Management Professionals) strongly disagrees with this. They plan to tackle the issue head on. Rick Harris, APMP Executive Director said:

“APMP plans to take this issue on aggressively. We are starting to schedule meetings with Congressional staff on the Hill. We are going to ask a lot of questions and specifically inquire how this decision could impact their future RFPs. We are going to let them know how much this hurts our members.”

There’s no doubt this is going to be an issue for contractors who avail of consultants. If this trend spreads, it could very seriously impact your Proposal Development process.

What can you do about it?
  • Define Your Proposal Process – Many companies become overly reliant on consultants. So the very act of documenting your process will mean you start to clearly spot areas where you will need to fill gaps previously played by the consultant. Just like any sales process, your team must clearly understand bid/no-bid discriminators, risk qualification criteria and other gated checks during your color team reviews.
  • Automate – If you currently rely heavily on support from consultants and are not using automated processes already, it’s time to start. Shredding your MS Word and PDF documents with a tool can save huge amounts of time. Integrate clarity/readability checks and win theme gated reviews with automation. Many consultants have a clear ‘compass’ for assessing risk in your proposal. So, take those risk checklists, and wire them into your proposal process. Identifying things like ‘liquidated damages’, CDRLs, acronyms are all ideally suited for automation. These time savers mean your team has more time and resources to focus on improving the proposal.
  • Stay Informed – No doubt we will begin to see a changing landscape. It’s important to stay abreast of the latest updates and changes in RFPs. Our own blog at VisibleThread, APMP Blog and the APMP Linkedin group are great places to stay informed.
  • Support APMP – If you want your voice to be heard, contact the APMP. Tell them your issues and have your voice heard.

Press Release IHI Streamlines Aircraft Engine Maintenance with Oracle Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul Solution Leading machinery manufacturer and maintenance service provider and TIS win the 2014 Travel and Transportation Industry Excellence Award for innovative MRO business transformation

Redwood Shores, Calif.——Apr 14, 2015

One of the world’s leading heavy-industry conglomerates, IHI Corporation, undertakes infrastructure projects around the globe leveraging cutting-edge technology. One of their primary enterprises is Aero-Engine and Space Operations which provides engine maintenance services for both defense and civil aircraft. The company is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and has revenues of US$12.67 billion (fiscal 2013).

To help streamline its planning and execution of maintenance processes, IHI has been working with Oracle and leading IT solutions provider and platinum level member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN), TIS, to implement the Oracle Complex Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul solution. IHI expects an improvement in its operations including a reduction in turnaround times for jet engine maintenance as well as improvements in its ability to meet growth targets for this line of business.

Ministry of Health Brazil Deploys Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index to Improve Health Data Interoperability

Oracle Database News - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 13:00
Ministry of Health Brazil Deploys Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index to Improve Health Data InteroperabilityOracle solution running on Oracle engineered systems helps to improve quality care for more than 200 million residents in Brazil

REDWOOD SHORES, CA—April 14, 2015—The Ministry of Health Brazil deployed Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index running on Oracle engineered systems to advance nationwide e-health initiatives designed to improve care quality while reducing costs. This is the largest enterprise master person index (EMPI) implementation in the world, covering Brazil’s entire population of more than 200 million.

In order to create a national electronic health record system and health information exchanges that serve every resident, the Ministry of Health Brazil must first ensure health data interoperability. As a foundation, it has created a highly scalable, reliable, and standards-based EMPI using Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.

Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index enables the Ministry of Health to accurately and rapidly match, deduplicate, link, and search personal records to support accurate decision-making at the point of care. Brazilian names present significant challenges when managing this process as they often comprise more than three components and there isn’t a uniform method for using a last name. To streamline this effort, the Ministry of Health’s EMPI relies on Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index to provide sophisticated filtering and matching functionality and the ability to interoperate using industry standards.

The standards-based Oracle solution also helps reduce the cost of ownership and speeds time to value by supporting Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) profiles and accommodating disparate IT systems within and outside of the Ministry of Health’s data infrastructure—without complicated and costly custom integrations.

“Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index has enabled us to create the robust and scalable foundation needed to gather accurate data and effectively deduplicate national healthcare card numbers,” said Moacyr Esteves Perche, director of DataSUS, Ministry of Health Brazil. “The solution is especially well suited to our massive scale and unique and complex master person index requirements. Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index has shown tangible results by identifying existing records and preventing issuance of more than half a million duplicate Cartão Nacional de Saúde healthcare cards in the first month of operation.”

Oracle Engineered Systems deliver the performance and scalability required to support Brazil’s nationwide EMPI. The persistence layer in Oracle Exadata Database Machine enables extensive performance benefits to effectively support a high volume of data and transactions, including data from 3.7 billion ambulatory procedures and 11 million medical admissions annually. Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud delivers strength and responsiveness in real-time processing and enables the environment to scale to support millions of patients and new features and functionality as e-health initiatives advance.

“Oracle is pleased to help the Ministry of Health Brazil advance its mission to provide quality and cost-effective universal healthcare to the entire population by achieving standards-based health data interoperability,” said Steve Rosenberg, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Health Sciences. “Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index is an essential building block for building Brazil’s national electronic health record system that will help improve care quality and health outcomes, as well as reduce operational costs.”

For this implementation, Oracle joined forces with CDS (CDS/NTC), a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), with knowledge of Oracle Healthcare Master Person Index, Oracle engineered systems, and other Oracle solutions. CDS conducted an initial bulk match-and-load process at the start of the implementation, deduplicating more than 320 million records and demonstrating the solution’s power and scalability.

Lids Sports Group Opens up Inventory across Channels with Oracle Retail Solutions

Oracle Database News - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 13:00
Press Release Lids Sports Group Opens up Inventory across Channels with Oracle Retail Solutions Specialty retailer uses Oracle to help increase available inventory while helping customers and associates easily find items online and at over 1,300 locations nationwide

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Apr 14, 2015

With more than 1,300 North American stores and a thriving e-commerce business, specialty retailer Lids Sports Group has a growing customer base that values both its in-store and online shopping experience. With the help of Oracle solutions, Lids expects to boost sales and increase consumer loyalty by making its entire inventory of team-specific sports apparel and memorabilia available in-store, online, or via a mobile device.     As part of a technology upgrade that includes a migration to Oracle’s MICROS Xstore (now Oracle Retail Xstore), Lids rolled out Oracle’s MICROS Retail Locate (now Oracle Retail Order Broker Cloud Service), enabling the retailer to nearly double the number of product SKUs available for sale online by exposing inventory in all Lids stores as well as throughout its supply chain.   The deployment provides associates and customers with real-time, chainwide inventory information whether products are sitting in a warehouse, an e-commerce distribution center, or on a store shelf hundreds of miles away. Employees can easily find available items and then ship them to customers’ homes or businesses, or to any store in the chain.   In addition to dramatically expanding available SKUs, the new solution replaces end-of-day inventory tracking with real-time insight Now, whether a customer buys an item in the store or online, the solution updates Lids’ store, e-commerce, ERP, and warehouse management systems, so that inventory levels are never in doubt.   Lids executives expect that this greater inventory availability and insight will increase sales and improve both sell-through and margins. The retailer projects that its new “endless aisle” functionality will also boost its liquidation metrics by showcasing discontinued or hard-to-find items that have been shipped to stores but not yet sold.   “Oracle Retail solutions have made a dramatic difference in how we do business, both with regard to our internal systems and in relating to customers,” said Larry Havlik, vice president, IT and Systems, Lids Sports Group. “This is a significant step toward driving growth, by expanding the items we offer and giving customers the full benefit of our locations, in-store service, and e-commerce site.”   In addition, the upgrade to the new point-of-service (POS) solution will simplify administration and the user experience for the more than 50 different POS screen and receipt configurations for Lids Sports Group’s partner brands. These include major college and pro teams as well as the nearly 200 Locker Room-branded stores in Macy’s locations.   “Lids is vastly expanding what it offers shoppers while also ensuring ease of access and better sell-through,” said Jill Puleri, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail. “By using Oracle Retail solutions, Lids is taking advantage of integrated channel and inventory management systems, backed by our ongoing investment in product development and world-class support.”   Contact Info Greg Lunsford
