Actian Appoints New CMO and SVP of Business Development to Accelerate the Transformation of the Big Data Marketplace

Actian Corporation (Ingres) Press Releases - Thu, 10/24/2013 - 19:00

Ashish Gupta, Former Microsoft and Vidyo executive, is poised to redefine the data analytics marketplace by creating new opportunities not addressed by aging stack players

Redwood City, Calif. – October 24, 2013 — – Actian Corporation (“Actian”), a next-generation leader in big data analytics and cloud integration, has appointed Ashish Gupta as chief marketing officer and senior vice president of business development.

“We have very systematically evolved our business so that we have a very powerful engine for the market’s transition to the Age of Data,” said Steve Shine, chief executive officer of Actian Corporation. “Ashish Gupta brings the go-to-market experience to ensure that we build our base in big data analytics and cloud integration. More importantly, he has the strategic vision to work with the team to entirely redefine these markets as we leapfrog legacy stack players.”

Gupta brings a passion and track record for challenging established companies saddled with legacy approaches, often caught in the Innovator’s Dilemma, by exploiting disruptive technologies and creative marketing strategies to rapidly scale the new entrant’s business and open new markets not addressed by incumbents. He joins Actian from Vidyo, a video conferencing provider, where he served as chief marketing officer and senior vice president of corporate development. Under his leadership, Vidyo experienced significant growth, formed key strategic partnerships and built a leading brand in the industry – challenging the leaders of a 30-year-old industry. Prior to Vidyo, Gupta held various executive roles within the Microsoft Office Division where he led marketing, sales and business development teams for Microsoft’s Unified Communications Group, competing with established PBX vendors to create a leadership position for Microsoft Lync in the communications and collaboration market. Gupta has also served in executive roles at Alcatel/Genesys Telecommunications, Deloitte Consulting, Covad and Hewlett-Packard.

“Severe market disruption happens when innovative technologies materially shift an industry’s fulcrum to create new business approaches and markets,” said Gupta. “Actian’s portfolio has proven to be such a force in the industry by enabling next-generation analytical solutions and invisible integration for thousands of customers that use data to create sustainable competitive advantage. I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the company’s fast growth and market leadership.”

Telerik Releases Everlive, Backend Services for Rapid Cross-Platform and Mobile Application Development

Telerik Company News - Tue, 10/22/2013 - 15:38

Fully-integrated into Telerik’s Portfolio of Development Tools and Solutions, Telerik’s Everlive Offers Cloud-Based Backend Services to Telerik’s 1M+ Developer Community


Waltham, MA, October 22, 2013Telerik®, an end-to-end provider of application development tools and solutions for building and analyzing cross-platform and mobile applications, today announced the availability of Telerik Everlive™, its backend as a service (BaaS) offering. Everlive is available independently or as a compliment to Telerik’s core mobile application development tools – Icenium®, RadControls™ for Windows Phone®, RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and Kendo UI®, offering cloud-powered services to its 1M+ developer community, for the first time.

Everlive is a set of cloud-based services that enables developers to build and manage mobile apps in a significantly faster and more scalable way. Everlive can speed the software development process by providing developers with cloud-based services such as data storage, user management with social network integration, cloud-code execution, push notifications (the most popular feature, to date), email and SMS notifications, all consumable with SDKs for JavaScript, iOS, and Windows devices.

“In the world of mobile development, speed and time-to-market is of the utmost importance. Our business is based on helping developers speed the development process, while providing a professional look and feel to their applications,” said Todd Anglin, EVP of Cross-Platform Tools & Services, Telerik. “With Everlive, we’re going beyond frontend UI and taking our expertise in developer productivity to backend server code, freeing developers to focus on what they do best, creating the next great app with an excellent user experience. With Everlive, Telerik enables developers’ unparalleled productivity and efficiency for creating cross-platform and mobile applications at a very competitive price.”

Everlive backend services can be used as a standalone service or accessed via the direct integration enabled in other Telerik products including Icenium, RadControls for Windows Phone, RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and Kendo UI. The ability to access and utilize Everlive is also incorporated into Telerik’s CMS, SitefinityTM. These integrations make it even easier for developers to add backend services to both new and existing mobile and web projects, because it makes available new cloud-powered capabilities to Telerik’s industry-leading UI tools, something that was not available previously.

“We leveraged Everlive in conjunction with Icenium and the experience was seamless. We were able to develop and deliver our first app within two months. There was no worrying about backend infrastructure hardware cost and support. We stored our data in the cloud and it was readily available when we needed it,” said Blake Scarlavai, Creator of Hidden Cuisine™.

Other features available in Everlive include:

  • SDK availability for major development platforms – iOS®, Microsoft® .NET and JavaScript® (SDK for Android™ coming soon).
  • A user-friendly portal to manage the app backend and real-time usage reports – a single point where developers can dictate permissions, execute cloud code, pick social authentications, set up email and push notifications and more.

Everlive is available today both for developers looking for the perfect complement to Telerik’s portfolio of technologies and solutions, as well as for those seeking a standalone backend solution. For more details and pricing, please visit www.telerik.com/Everlive.

New Telerik DevTools Release Delivers Major Mobile, Cloud and Cross-Platform Enhancements for 1M+ Developer Community

Telerik Company News - Thu, 10/17/2013 - 14:53

Update Includes New Cross-Platform Integration, Cloud Data Storage and Management, Deep-Dive Analytics, and Visual Studio 2013 Support


WALTHAM, MA, October 17, 2013Telerik®, an end-to-end provider of application development tools and solutions for building and analyzing cross-platform and mobile applications, today announced the Q3 release of its leading .NET development tools suite. The new release delivers significant mobile, cloud and cross-platform enhancements, and analytics, to its 1M-strong developer community, serving more than 130,000 customers in 94 countries. This release provides a major competitive edge to developers who want to maximize the reach of their applications.

“This innovative DevTools® release sets a new standard for developers looking to deliver consistent, high-quality applications across platforms with ease,” said Chris Sells, Vice President, DevTools division, Telerik. “DevTools continues to provide the ultimate .NET development experience, but with this update, has extended far beyond, offering incredible flexibility in meeting the exacting needs of users that demand applications delivered according to their platform and mobile requirements.”

Analytics-based development
Historically, developers have been working with little-to-no feedback from the end-user on the ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’ of their applications. With the Q3 release, Telerik now offers integrated analytics in its WPF and Silverlight® controls leveraging the EQATEC Application Analytics™ platform. Developers can now refine their efforts by leveraging important data such as application interactions, crash reports and feature usage and can improve usability of their most important applications.

Cloud capabilities
As the cloud advances within the enterprise, it is imperative to leverage the technology not only within the IT infrastructure but also for development and personal data usage and storage. Being able to share application architectures between multiple clients is vital and Telerik understands this. That is why, with the Q3 release, the company’s Backend as a Service (BaaS) offering, Everlive™, is now integrated into its RadControls™ for Windows Phone®. Dubbed “Telerik Cloud Components™,” the tools available for Windows Phone support multiple scenarios such as user registration and login, picture upload, browsing, sharing and more, straight out-of-the-box.

In addition to the Q3 release offerings for Windows Phone, Telerik released the RadCloudUpload™ control, its first component to enable ASP.NET developers to upload files for use with Amazon S3™, Windows Azure™, or Everlive without writing a line of code.

Cross-platform enhancements
Today’s market is BYOD focused, making cross-platform development essential to any successful implementation. That is why Telerik has fully-integrated its award-winning hybrid mobile app development platform—Icenium—within the DevCraft™ Ultimate collection, with the Q3 release. This enables its core .NET developer community to create and deploy iOS® and Android™ mobile applications, within the IDE of their choosing; including Visual Studio® via the Icenium Visual Studio extension.

With the Q3 release, Telerik is also improving cross-platform needs for ASP.NET developers with the addition of Telerik’s component for Lightbox® for easy image and template displays, as well as Telerik’s component for MediaPlayer™, providing rich video and audio playback in HTML5 capable browsers. The RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX™ suite improves on its lightweight rendering that is ideal for mobile and cross platform applications that target HTML5-complaint browsers and devices.

Additional enhancements include:
• A radial menu for Windows 8 HTML and XAML
• A scheduler for Windows 8 HTML
• A Pinterest-like RadDataBoundListBox™ and RadCloudCalendar™ for Windows Phone
• RadSpreadsheet™ control for WPF and Silverlight® as well as an Office 2013 theme
• Enhanced JustCode™ Test Runner, JustTrace™ line-level profiling, Leak analysis in JustTrace and instrumentation of DLL- import methods in JustMock™
• Support for Visual Studio 2013

The Q3 update is currently available. For details, please go to http://www.telerik.com/developer-productivity-tools/whats-new.aspx. The company will also host Webinar Week starting on October 28 where attendees will have the opportunity to view the tools first hand. To register, please go to http://www.telerik.com/support/webinars.aspx.

Telerik Sitefinity Makes Dynamic Content Delivery Effortless for its More than 70,000 Users

Telerik Company News - Wed, 10/16/2013 - 15:05

Inline Editing, Google Analytics and an Administration Dashboard Enhance Usability for Business Users to Deliver Compelling Online Experiences and Grow Their Business


WALTHAM, MA - October 16, 2013Telerik® today announced several new usability benefits to enhance efficiency for digital marketers and business users of Sitefinity™, the company’s leading Content Management System (CMS) solution. Serving more than 70,000 users that account for millions of website interactions daily, the need for authoring and editing content in context of the front-end presentation is a requirement, especially amongst the Fortune 500®. That is why the Sitefinity CMS now comes equipped with inline editing, an HTML5-based module for implementing Google Analytics™ web analytics service and a dynamic administration dashboard.

The Sitefinity CMS has always focused on user-centered, task-driven, minimalistic design that enables business users to execute quickly and independently. With the latest release, it now comes equipped with:

  • Inline Editing: A user-friendly method to make updates within the context of the site. The Sitefinity CMS has introduced a browser-based HTML5 environment for creating and updating content. Content authors can edit title fields and body fields in a true WYSIWYG format; change headers, sub-heads, and body content; and replace images in context of the webpage. The full details mode allows users to edit all the pieces of a content node such as keyword tags, image alt tags, URL, and publication date.
  • HTML5-Based Module for Google Analytics: The latest release of the Sitefinity CMS marks the upgrade of Telerik’s Module for Google Analytics web analytics service to HTML5. Based on this rich, standards-based environment, users can take advantage of Google Analytics web analytics service integrated tightly to the Sitefinity CMS backend. While editing webpages, content authors can leverage analytic reports including daily visits, visit duration, and unique visitors – while making adjustments to the webpage, on the fly, for improved search engine results.
  • Dynamic Administration Dashboard: The Sitefinity CMS now comes equipped with a dynamic Administration Dashboard that gives business users visibility into areas such as website interactions, pending tasks and recent content added. Integrated with Google Analytics, it lets users set personalized displays to any metrics such as daily visits, visit duration, bounce rate, or traffic sources or set the dashboard to display content items last edited as well as type and status.

“The ability to execute is becoming a bigger and bigger differentiator for the success of online marketing teams. Making digital marketers more effective by authoring content in context of the presentation was the main driver behind the revolutionary inline content authoring experience we’re delivering with this release,” said Martin Kirov, Executive Vice President, Telerik’s Sitefinity division. “Content is still in the center of the online customer experience and enriching it with context, coupled with amazing authoring experience will enable our customers to deliver compelling online experiences and grow their business.”

Klocwork Insight™Helps Automotive Industry Secure Their Code

Klocwork Newsfeed - Wed, 10/16/2013 - 13:53

Desktop deployment becoming proven choice of automotive industry software developers

BURLINGTON, MA – Oct. 16, 2013 – Klocwork® Inc., a global leader in software development tools for creating secure code, today announced that it continues to grow the list of worldwide automotive suppliers and manufacturers who are deploying its InsightTM source code analysis toolset to ensure the security and reliability of complex new automotive electronic systems.

According to a recent report by Ward Automotive, there are over 1 Billion vehicles in operation worldwide, and it is forecasted that by 2035 that number will exceed 1.7B. Many vehicles now have more than 100 Million lines of software code in their on board systems, and as the sophistication of those systems continues to grow, the complexity and amount of code will only grow as well. The explosion of consumer electronics use in society has sensitized customers to the threat of viruses, identify theft and other cyber crimes, and many fear their automobile is the next target for malicious attack.

With components coming from varied suppliers to provide the latest in navigation, infotainment, and communications features, along with advanced fuel management, braking and drive train technologies, security is increasingly paramount. Manufacturers and suppliers are now demanding software development tools that enable them to find and fix security vulnerabilities and code defects in the most automated and efficient way possible, and to ensure they remain compliant with the most current industry standards in the process. Being front page news about the latest automotive software security breach can be catastrophic to their brand and their bottom line.

Klocwork Insight continues to be the tool of choice for these developers. It provides them with advanced code analysis, including deep data flow and structural analysis, right at their desktop as they write their code. Insight supports MISRA C and C++ coding standards and has received both ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certifications. Leveraging these capabilities, Insight empowers developers themselves to find and fix any security vulnerabilities, code defects or compliance violations prior to code check-in, creating unmatched development efficiency and reducing project time and costs dramatically.

“Application security requirements in the automotive world will soon rival those in Military/Aerospace and other similar industries. As the number of automated vehicles on the roads increases, the potential for widespread havoc that can be created by agents that want to do evil will increase. More intelligent vehicles means more software in those vehicles. The number of suppliers to the auto manufacturers will continue to grow as the demand for more consumer convenience grows. A perfect security storm is developing and it needs to be addressed urgently. Klocwork continues to lead the way in providing customers with the software tools and the standards support they need to produce these compelling new applications with the confidence that they are protected and dependable,” said Gwyn Fisher, Klocwork Chief Technology Officer.

Actian Integrates ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform to Speed Time to Analytic Value

Actian Corporation (Ingres) Press Releases - Fri, 10/11/2013 - 21:14

Platform combines ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform’s high-performance analytical capabilities with Hadoop’s data management capabilities to democratize big data analytics

Redwood City, Calif. – October 11, 2013 Actian Corporation (“Actian”), a next-generation leader in big data analytics, announced the release of new ParAccel Dataflow Operators that integrate the recently announced ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform, further unifying its technology offerings. This new innovation ties together the data management capabilities of Hadoop with the high-performance analytic processing of the ParAccel Big Data Analytic Platform, enabling organizations to achieve better price performance and quicker time to analytic value.

The ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform provides a single, visual interface to load, prepare, enrich and analyze data natively on various Apache Hadoop distributions. Users can now process data directly on Hadoop and move the data to the ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform’s high-performance analytics engine without any MapReduce or SQL programming, rapidly increasing the rate at which business value is derived from the analytics process. Business users and analysts alike can leverage the extreme performance of the ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform for their predictive analytics initiatives.

“In the Age of Data, organizations need next-generation technologies that rapidly turn big-data investments into value-creation engines. To achieve this, different data platforms must work together to meet the mixed workload demands that result from the convergence of emerging data and new analytics,” said Steve Shine, chief executive officer of Actian Corporation. “Actian has quickly integrated its leading-edge technology assets to create a cooperative analytic processing environment that accelerates the speed at which data flows from data management to high-value analytics.”

The ParAccel Dataflow Operators enable data to persist within Actian’s massively parallel analytic processing engine or the single-node version used for accelerated business intelligence or analytic applications. When used in conjunction with Hadoop’s superior data management capabilities, the platform gives business users the ability to conduct analytics leveraging best-of-breed point applications for enterprise-class deployments.

“Platforms that allow workloads to gravitate to the engine best-suited to handle specific kinds of processing will consistently lower the cost of computing,” said Shawn Rogers, vice president of Enterprise Management Associates. “Hadoop is optimal for preparing and enriching data, as well as search and discovery analytics. Analytic platforms are best-suited for running high-performance, lower latency analytics at any scale. Actian’s next-generation, shared processing approach is consistent with the way companies should architect systems to leverage both technologies.”

This technology integration comes only months removed from Actian’s announcement of leveraging recently acquired companies ParAccel, Pervasive Software and Versant Corporation to deliver the ParAccel Big Data Analytics and Actian DataCloud Platforms. “You are seeing the new Actian in action,” said Shine. “We are a big data innovator with the agility of a small Silicon Valley startup and the strength and staying power of a global stalwart.”
