Insurers Can Increase Revenue Opportunities, Reduce Costs, and Improve Customer Service with New Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud Service

Oracle Database News - Mon, 09/29/2014 - 12:01
Insurers Can Increase Revenue Opportunities, Reduce Costs, and Improve Customer Service with New Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud Service Oracle extends the industry’s broadest and most advanced portfolio of cloud offerings with new cloud service for the insurance industrySIBOS, BOSTON, MASS. and ORACLE OPENWORLD – SAN FRANCISCO – September 29, 2014News Summary

Today’s insurance marketplace is evolving rapidly, with new reforms in healthcare, more-complex distribution channels, and group product bundling creating a challenging landscape for insurers with legacy systems that struggle to support accurate consolidated billing and revenue management. Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud Service offers the simplicity and scalability of the cloud, while delivering important insurance-specific features such as improved transaction feed management, enhanced individual and aggregated stop loss calculations, and on-demand billing that make it easier for insurers to bill more efficiently and flexibly to meet customer needs.

News Facts Oracle today introduced Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud Service, combining the power of Oracle’s modern, rules-based system for billing, payment and collections management with the simplicity, elasticity and security of the Oracle Cloud. Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud enables insurers to improve operational efficiency through seamless and secure application access and stay ahead of the competition with new enhancements including: Improved transaction feed management: The new solution increases performance by evaluating claim transactions as they come in, fully calculating the fees or discounts daily rather than waiting for the weekly bill cycle. Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud also improves user productivity by enabling price definition at the group and subgroup levels. Enhanced individual and aggregate stop loss calculations: To support major health plans, the Oracle solution enables insurers to load claims from the plan’s own customers or from a third-party carrier, where they can be aggregated toward specific stop loss (SSL) or aggregate stop loss (ASL) calculations. On-demand billing: New cloud service capabilities enable users to create ad hoc invoices for a policy, making it possible for users to control which charges link to the resulting bill. Supporting Quote “Payers today are facing unprecedented change in their business driven by healthcare reform, the need for consumer-centricity, nontraditional products and market competition,” said Sonny Singh, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Financial Services. “Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud helps insurers and payers rapidly deliver new business practices and products with minimal disruption to existing systems and offers comprehensive pricing, billing, payment reconciliation and collections capabilities on Oracle’s secure public cloud infrastructure.” Supporting Resources Oracle Insurance Oracle Insurance Revenue Management and Billing Cloud Follow Oracle Insurance on Twitter Join the Oracle Insurance Community on Facebook Oracle Insurance on LinkedIn Subscribe to the Oracle Insurance YouTube channel

Legal Seminar - Practical Legal Guidance for Crafting Open Source Policies

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Fri, 09/26/2014 - 20:56

MCLE Certified Event

Tightening budgets and competitive pressures have many IT organizations turning to open source software (OSS) to increase agility and accelerate innovation.  However, a recent Gartner report states that 50% of companies will face challenges due to a lack of OSS policy and management.

While OSS provides many competitive advantages, most IT organizations are yet to uncover its full potential. Many have no strategy for optimizing development with OSS and often ignore or are unaware of the technical, business and legal challenges of multi-source development, resulting in subpar processes and performance. Companies are similarly unaware that OSS is being used within their business environment and that in many cases, OSS is already contained within their own proprietary code – the legal and business implications of which can have dramatic and unintended results to a business if not correctly managed.  

During the last year, several software companies have sued over OSS licenses seeking both damages and injunctive relief. In the past, disputes were generally handled within the community and the remedy sought was compliance with the license terms.  These developments suggest that lack of compliance may have additional risks.

Black Duck and DLA Piper, invite you to attend one of our legal seminars where we will cover:

  • The latest OSS trends
  • Overviews of some of the most popular OSS licenses (including the GPL)
  • Some common case studies for OSS management
  • The impact of OSS during mergers & acquisitions and other transactions
  • Some recent litigation involving OSS

Shellshock

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Fri, 09/26/2014 - 16:46
*/

Shellshock Tips and Resources

Concerns are rising about the recently-discovered Shellshock vulnerability, a flaw in the Bash software component, which is an integral part of Linux, Unix, and Apple’s Mac operating system. Shellshock could potentially affect hundreds of millions of computers, servers, and devices.

While Heartbleed allowed anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of OpenSSL, attackers are now using Shellshock to gain direct access to systems. Since so many web sites run the Apache server, which employs the Bash component, the threat is particularly serious and widespread.  

How Black Duck Can Help

In server and desktop software, Black Duck’s scanning capabilities can inform system administrators and integrators about the presence of affected versions of the Bash shell. Black Duck can also work with organizations to help them determine whether vulnerable versions of Bash persist in their manifests, build trees, and catalogs. 

Black Duck's enterprise-wide open source management solutions provide the visibility and control you need to keep your software secure.

IDENTIFY

Quickly identify which components have vulnerabilities and where they are in use.

REMEDIATE

Easily assess determined vulnerabilities and make necessary updates.

SECURE

Proactively monitor your codebase, receiving automatic alerts for potential security exposures.

 

When critical vulnerabilities like Shellshock and Heartbleed are identified, Black Duck customers can quickly assess their software and, when necessary, easily update it everywhere the vulnerability is found – a tremendous competitive advantage. 

WhitepapersWhat Security Professionals Need to Know About Open Source Vulnerabilities

Download Whitepaper

We can help organizations:

  • Discover and track what specific open source components are in use within their applications
  • Identify security vulnerabilities reported against specific open source components
  • Assess which specific applications use components with known vulnerabilities

Customers of Black Duck also benefit from our continuous monitoring of the National Vulnerability Database. As soon as vulnerabilities are identified, customers automatically receive alerts pointing to problem components in their codebase.

We understand that if you can't identify what open source is in use within your applications, you won't know if and when you are vulnerable. The ability to quickly and easily identify where you are using an affected component is essential to your capacity to remediate and mitigate the vulnerability.

What To Do Next

Security researchers recommend that system administrators should run patches immediately. It’s particularly important to check frequently for updates, since the patches issued immediately after the bug was discovered later proved to be inadequate.  Updated patches for the Shellshock flaw in the Unix Bash shell are now available from Red Hat, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Debian. The Department of Homeland Security’s United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) has updated its recommendations on remediation, as has the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s National Vulnerability Database.

You may be thinking, geez NCover, you sure write a lot about code coverage. Guilty. Yes we do. We love it. We are happy to assist the .NET development community in building better applications and quality code. Since we are always talking about it, we get asked a lot of questions about it.

why_code_coverage_blogOne of the most frequent is why do I need code coverage in my development process?

Code coverage is part of the code quality umbrella. Code quality is one of the most important concerns of any software development organization. You want to be able to see if you have a predictable code base and also make changes without upsetting the apple cart. Higher quality code should result in happier clients and customers.

There are certain groups that find it more engrained in their method. For example, code coverage is most valuable as a feedback mechanism for test-driven or agile development methodologies. Both of these methods rely on a developmental feedback loop that promotes the addition of features while maintaining a predictable quality level. Rapid development and technical prowess will only yield breakthrough results if customers can rely on the quality of your product.

Covering your code also reduces the costs of debugging deployed code. Once code has shipped, fixing a bug’s cost increases, on average,  by 1,000%. While cost savings may not be on every developer’s mind, it is an important factor to be able to continue building quality code and keeping customers happy and coming back.

Do you have additional questions about integrating code coverage into your development process? Set up a time to chat with one of our team to help see if it is a fit for you.

Building Scalable OSS Workflow Approvals with FINRA

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Thu, 09/25/2014 - 16:30
Webinar

Open source software (OSS) helps development organizations work faster and more securely while reducing costs. Knowing what code is used and approved for use and reuse lets developers write the most innovative, secure code while avoiding potential legal, operational, and security risks.

FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, developed its own OSS approval workflow process to manage the development of hundreds of internal applications. As OSS use continued to grow, the workflow process itself and the lack of intelligent code cataloging became a hindrance to developers. Join this webinar with Kostas Gaitanos, Senior Director at FINRA, and Black Duck Software, who will discuss:

  • The challenges and benefits of achieving OSS compliance
  • How to build a scalable OSS approval workflow
  • Manual vs. automated approval processes
  • Creating and maintaining a code catalog – how to inventory your code
