Reinforcing OSS Governance with Build Automation

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Wed, 11/12/2014 - 17:30

To fully deliver on the promise of open source software (OSS), companies need to automate the management of open source from the point it enters the organization, throughout the development process, and across the supply chain. Without this level of logistical control over enterprise OSS usage, organizations face licensing, operational, and security risks.

While they navigate the complexities of OSS compliance, organizations are also trying to streamline the build process by deploying build automation and continuous integration solutions. Integrating OSS governance into build automation significantly improves business agility and development efficiencies.   

Join Michael Wasiak, ____ and Bill Weinberg, Director of Open Source Strategy at Black Duck, for a discussion on how integrating governance and build automation empowers software development organizations to:

  • Standardize use of selected open source components and versions by cross-checking build manifests against approved OSS component catalogs
  • Enable support of chosen OSS and coordinate OSS selection with integration and build
  • Increase re-use of software by highlighting pre-approved components

Xerox Talks Best Practices for Open Source Governance

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Thu, 11/06/2014 - 20:00

Xerox pioneered digital imaging, the graphical user interface, and the Ethernet, among other technological innovations. Today, the company is finding new ways to innovate using open source software (OSS). OSS has become nearly ubiquitous in the corporate enterprise, with developers turning to it to reduce costs, enhance flexibility, and reduce time to market. But as organizations increase their use of open source, they need better solutions to the logistical challenges that accompany its use.  
Join Robert Levine, Licensing Executive for Xerox, and Black Duck as they discuss open source best practices, common challenges, and emerging trends. You’ll learn about tools for managing open source, and hear the answers to commonly asked questions including:

  • Why should a company want to be compliant when it comes to OSS usage, and what are the impacts of non-compliance?
  • When should companies start thinking about OSS compliance?
  • What steps are needed to build a successful OSS compliance program?
  • Who should be involved in building an OSS policy?

Oracle Expands Data Integration Portfolio with Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12cNew product helps customers with big data governance needsREDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – October 20, 2014News Summary

In today’s data-driven business landscape, organizations need to easily and cost-effectively manage an exponentially increasing amount of information being created both inside and outside the company. Governing and managing this vast influx of data is important to ensure it is securely stored and accessible both in the cloud and on premises. The new Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c, part of the Oracle Data Integration portfolio, helps customers meet these challenges and leverage their data to improve IT productivity and performance, lower costs, and deliver tangible business results.

Data governance, stewardship, and standardization. Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c fosters stewardship collaboration through feedback and comment review boards, multimedia attachments, annotations, and tagging. The solution also offers semantic lineage via a business glossary. Big data transparency.

Furthermore, we’re enabling them to leverage their data, along with the latest technologies such as cloud, big data, and business analytics, to reduce risks and produce real business results.” “A comprehensive enterprise data management strategy is paramount to an organization’s ability to use its data to drive actionable results, whether that means improving operational efficiency, reducing costs, or improving governance,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president, application development and deployment at IDC. “With Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c, Oracle becomes one of the few enterprise vendors that takes seriously the central role of metadata in managing systems.” Supporting Resources Oracle Data Integration Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management 12c Data Sheet Oracle Fusion Middleware Oracle Big Data Register for the Oracle Big Data Governance Webcast Connect with Oracle Data Integration via Blog, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedInAbout Oracle

Securitas Direct Will Be Able to Manage up to 100 Million Verisure Alarm Signals Per Day with Oracle Internet of Things Solution

Oracle Database News - Thu, 10/16/2014 - 13:00
Securitas Direct Will Be Able to Manage up to 100 Million Verisure Alarm Signals Per Day with Oracle Internet of Things SolutionOracle technology helps Securitas Direct improve service quality and diversify offerings by increasing speed and capacity at its processing center
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – October 16, 2014Summary

Securitas Direct, a leading supplier of safety and security solutions in Spain, Europe, and Latin America, has chosen Oracle hardware and software as the backbone for its main connections and processing signals center. With the Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) solution, Securitas Direct will be able to strengthen the quality of service, speed time to market for new products and services, and deliver an improved experience for its business and residential customers. The Oracle solution will allow Securitas Direct to manage as many as 100 million signals per day from different security devices. With Oracle, Securitas Direct migrated its legacy system to a scalable, integrated platform that can handle massive amounts of device data transforming it to immediate business value while providing centralized monitoring services from a hub in Spain to countries including Brazil, Chile, France, Italy, Peru, and Portugal.

New Facts Continuing its commitment to deliver the most innovative solutions for alarms and intelligent applications, Securitas Direct introduced the Verisure system, which enables customers to monitor security remotely via mobile applications. In order to develop the Verisure system and support future products and services related to the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart-home systems, Securitas Direct needed an integrated monitoring platform that could manage an increasing amount of data and communications originating from installed security equipment devices. With Oracle’s technology, the system can handle an exponential increase in recurrent communications between the alarm devices and the central monitoring hub. Using Oracle technology and services, Securitas Direct can scale to manage as many as 100 million signals per day from different security devices. With this next-generation platform, corporate centers from seven countries can obtain service through the systems that support the Central Monitoring Station. The new solution currently processes more than 2 million device alarm signals per day. By implementing the Oracle solutions, Securitas Direct has been able to reduce system latency of the alarm signal to response timeto mere seconds, while also improving the efficiency of the signals management system. Oracle’s technology will support Securitas Direct’s future business growth. Additionally, it will also help strengthen the quality of service for Securitas Direct’s home and business clients. Technical Description of the Oracle Solution Securitas Direct uses a wide range of Oracle technology, including Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle’s Sun x86 systems, and Oracle VM running on Oracle Linux. Specifically, the technology includes Oracle Database; Oracle SOA Suite; Oracle Event Processing; Oracle WebLogic Server 12c; Oracle Coherence 12c; Oracle JRockit Real Time; Java Platform, Enterprise Edition; Oracle VM for x86; and Oracle Linux. Using Oracle Fusion Middleware—Oracle Event Processing, Oracle Business Activity Monitoring, and Oracle Coherence—the company has been able to shorten the time to market for applications and services. For example, by analyzing the events that occur at home, such as movement detection and power failure, Securitas Direct has been able to speed response times to customer demands for new security features. With the implementation, the company also has improved the response time when an alert is received. Additionally, the solution has facilitated the launch of new products related to the Internet of Things and improved time to market for products and services in the new countries where the company operates. Securitas Direct replaced the previous solution with Oracle technology in two phases. First, the middleware base was created, and then the services were migrated one by one from the legacy system to the new platform without any interruption in service. With Oracle SOA Suite, Securitas Direct has been able to improve the customer experience for the services already provided to homeowners and businesses by making it possible for them to configure security remotely through mobile applications. Securitas Direct received the 2014 Oracle Excellence Award for Oracle Fusion Middleware Innovation: Service-Oriented-Architecture at Oracle OpenWorld 2014. Supporting Quote “Oracle solutions have helped us deliver on our commitment to providing the highest quality of service, ensuring the best experience for our customers, both homes and businesses, and getting into new areas with a time to market three times faster than before,” said David Martínez Álvarez, M2M platform manager, Securitas Direct España.Supporting Resources About Securitas Direct Join the Oracle SOA Suite communities on Facebook and Twitter Learn more about Oracle IoT solutions and follow us on TwitterAbout Oracle
