1  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Android users can create Hidden Spaces on: March 02, 2015, 04:45:27 AM
Barcelona, 2nd March 2015 –  Graphite Software, the company behind Secure Spaces for Android, has today announced version 3.0, providing users to store private apps, messages and accounts with the new Hidden Space feature. In addition, Secure Spaces 3.0 adds support for Android Lollipop, a range of integration options and many other important enhancements.

Not all information is meant to be shared or made public. The Hidden Space provides a secret, secure “device within a device” for the most important apps and data. A Hidden Space is for the device owner’s eyes only, and will only become visible when accessed from a special app in the Owner Space. API support enables developers to create their own access method, such as using gestures or integration with the launcher. Every Secure Spaces device includes the Hidden Space, whether used or not.

“The Hidden Space usage remains undetectable to anyone else using, or with access to, the device,” said Alec Main, CEO of Graphite Software. “Many countries allow warrantless search of smartphones and tablets, so people need strong encryption technology to protect their privacy.”

Secure Spaces 3.0 also delivers support for Android 5.0 and takes advantage of many of the new operating system enhancements. Secure Spaces 3.0 enables multiple integration options, including a “lite” integration version of Secure Spaces that provides many of the same Space management features while accelerating time to market.

Alec continues: “This update follows the launch of our Secure Spaces Cloud Management Service, providing users of Secure Spaces with even more options to enhance their mobile user experience with opt-in services from a variety of sources and to benefit from multiple separate spaces.”

Graphite Software's Secure Spaces for Android gives users choice in their mobile experience. Users can use any app and service they want without having to lose control of their personal information. For more information on Graphite Software, please visit http://www.graphitesoftware.com.

About Graphite Software’s Secure Spaces:
Secure Spaces for Android gives users choice of their mobile experience, enabling customization and new apps without losing control of their personal information. Supporting both user-defined and downloadable "Spaces" the potential use cases are limited only by the imagination of the device owner or a curator in the cloud.

2  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Across Systems Publishes White Paper on the Principle of Translation Management on: February 26, 2015, 05:49:59 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 26th February 2015 – Computer-aided translations with the help of translation memory technology deliver numerous advantages. Nevertheless, many enterprises have not yet or only partially come in touch with such systems. For this reason, they are often still unaware of the functions and actual savings potential. In a white paper, Across Systems, manufacturer of the Across Language Server, explains the basic modes of operation and central modules of translation management systems (TMS).

To begin with, the white paper shows the difference between machine translation and translation with the help of a TMS, as the two systems are often confused. For a machine translation system to work, it must first be filled with data for predefined language pairs. Subsequently, the actual translation takes place automatically, i.e. without any human interaction. The result can be post-edited by a reviewer or translator. However, the changes are not entered in the system directly, but are only entered after some time, if at all. By contrast, a translation system with translation memory technology can be used immediately for any language combination and supports human translators in their work. The data repository grows with every translation that is prepared with the help of the system. Accordingly, the learning effect of the system takes place at the same time as the translation. In the ideal case, the translator thus benefits from a previous translation right away when he starts with the next sentence.

Moreover, the white paper explains the typical components and functions of common translation management systems, such as the translation memory, the terminology database, project management, and quality assurance modules as well as their interaction in the overall translation process.

The white paper of Across Systems is designed to provide enterprises that have just started to examine the subject of computer-aided translation with easy-to-understand basic information. Anyone interested can download it free of charge from the software manufacturer's website.

3  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / AsiaInfo gives operators the key to seamless CRM on: February 26, 2015, 04:40:13 AM
Beijing and London, 26th February 2015 – AsiaInfo, China’s largest telecoms software and services company, today announced a revolutionary upgrade to its award-winning Veris™ BSS product suite which can help transform and streamline customer services and support for Communication Service Providers (CSPs).

Version 7 of Veris CRM, the latest release within AsiaInfo’s Veris product suite, is an enhanced Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool that will, for the first time, deliver a true ‘omni-channel’ architecture for telecoms, helping CSPs provide fully integrated seamless customer support across multiple channels and different enquiry points.

With Veris CRM, operators can now deliver consistent, accurate service to customers whether they enquire in-store, online, over the phone, via email, social media or an operator-branded self-help app. For the customer, Veris CRM enables true ‘omni-channel’ capability. The purchasing channels become transparent, so a transaction could begin online and be completed in-store as a continuous process.

Independent research, carried out by respected telecommunications industry specialists Northstream Consulting, has highlighted potential operating expenditure savings of between two and five percent annually for the mobile operator community from the adoption of this omni-channel approach.

Announcing the new integrated solution, Dr Andy Tiller, VP product marketing for AsiaInfo, said: “Business and personal consumers today interact with their service provider companies in many ways – phone calls and emails are being replaced by Twitter, Facebook, and self-care tools in operator apps. Too often though, these different channels for customer service are not joined up at all – the systems do not link a Twitter username to a customer name for example. As a result, one customer might have multiple, unconnected profiles on the system.

“The flexibility of the Veris suite enables operators to add new channels with the confidence that the existing customer data and business process logic will be seamlessly adopted.”

Veris CRM collates and integrates customer information to ensure that an up-to-date single consolidated view of the customer is always available to all channels. This means that a customer raising a query or placing an order online would also simply be able to visit an operator’s retail store to ask for an update or to change or collect their order, with all their details readily available through all access points.

“Veris CRM helps operators to make the connections and deliver proper, joined-up integrated customer service,” said Dr Tiller. “It allows an operator to build a single view of a customer, recognize their services and requirements, and to track customer interactions whenever, wherever and however they connect.”

6  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Nabto offers its “Internet of Things” Communication Platform on Cortus-based Sys on: February 25, 2015, 05:56:37 AM
Nürnberg, Germany, 25th February 2015 – Cortus, a technology leader in low-power, silicon-efficient, 32-bit processor IP, and Nabto, a Peer-to-Peer (p2p) software company, announce the availability of the uNabto communication platform on Cortus’ APS processor cores today. uNabto is a low-bandwidth Web server protocol that runs on any Cortus APS core and employs an innovative approach to bypassing firewalls and providing GUI-based Internet access to a wide range of embedded applications—using only 16 KB of Flash and less than 1 kB of RAM. uNabto running on Cortus APS cores with the Cortus Ethernet 10/100 MAC enables “Skype-like” connectivity from systems-on-chip (SoC) to browsers on mobile phones, PCs and to big data systems.

“Creating remote user access to the ‘Internet of Things’ has never been easier,” said Carsten Rhod Gregersen, CEO at Nabto. “By combining Cortus’ processor cores and Ethernet MAC with the uNabto Web server software, a simple, autonomous and highly scalable end-user experience is achieved. The Nabto platform enables the transmission and rendering of both local and remote data directly from a Cortus-based SoC to a browser on any PC or smart phone, speeding time-to-market without the complexity and cost of a high-end network solution.”

The resource-constrained nature of embedded devices was not designed for Web browsing. Using traditional Web technology, it is costly and difficult to reach an embedded SoC device located behind a firewall; not to mention serving and transmitting large graphics files while rendering HTML to a browser. Nabto enables lightweight remote access through its patent-pending fusion of HTTP and VoIP technologies. The end result is that the complexity of serving large-footprint data is moved from the SoC processor core to the remote user’s Nabto browser plug-in. This Cortus-based Nabto solution brings SoCs for “Internet of Things” one step closer, as the value gained from remote Web access now matches the cost to implement it.

“Developers of SoCs with embedded processors are looking for lightweight, silicon-efficient design solutions,” said Mr. Michael Chapman, CEO and President of Cortus, “Nabto’s lightweight p2p software with a small firmware footprint perfectly complements Cortus minimalist processor cores.” He adds, “Cortus APS cores, with low power and good code density are an excellent choice for SoCs requiring P2M or M2M connectivity with Nabto.”

Cortus licenses a range of low power, silicon efficient, 32-bit processor cores supporting a range computational performance and supporting different system complexity. The cores start from entry-level 32-bit cores suitable for upgrading 8-bit cores to cores supporting caches, co-processors and symmetric multiprocessing systems. They share the simple vectored interrupt structure, which ensures rapid, real time interrupt response, with low software overhead.

All APS processor cores interface to Cortus’ peripherals including Ethernet 10/100 MAC, USB 2.0 Device and USB 2.0 OTG via the efficient APS bus. The Ethernet MAC allows the chosen physical interface to be connected using either the Medium Independent Interface (MII) or Reduced Medium Independent Interface (RMII). Flexible memory interfaces with two independent DMA channels enable system design to ensure low CPU overhead reception and transmission without any danger of frames being lost. Address filtering enables a single interface to respond to multiple MAC addresses.

About Nabto:
Nabto (http://nabto.com) was founded in 2007 in Aarhus, Denmark by Carsten Rhod Gregersen, who saw an opportunity to connect all digital devices on the Internet in a new and simple way. He implemented this vision, and led Nabto to win the Scandinavian Industry Expo’s Invention Contest 2009 while ranking second out of 700 innovative companies in the IBM SmartCamp competition 2010.

11  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Study highlights potential $4.6 billion saving for mobile operators on: February 19, 2015, 05:33:17 AM
Cambridge, UK, 19th February 2015 - Research into future customer relationship management (CRM) trends has highlighted a potential saving of up to $4.6 billion to Western European mobile operators if streamlined ‘omni-channel’ CRM systems are implemented.

Omni-channel means delivering a consistent, accurate service to customers whether they enquire in-store, online, over the phone, via email, social media or through an operator-branded self-help app. The purchasing channels become transparent, so for example a transaction could begin online and be completed in-store as part of a continuous process.

The research, conducted by Northstream and commissioned by AsiaInfo, looked to quantify the benefits and challenges of an omni-channel approach targeted at giving operators a single customer view (SCV) across all channels and internal functions.

The research found significant OPEX savings in customer service by avoiding duplication of work as well as the simplification of renewals and new customer acquisitions. Further savings were found to result from greater efficiency in marketing, sales and IT operations.

The detailed report has a particular focus on the impact of social media, recognizing its widespread use by both businesses and consumers as a simple means of interaction. The study found, however, that social media is often inefficient for customer care functions because the high volume of queries generated are typically being handled manually and not being automatically fulfilled and integrated into customer profiles.. The result is that operators do not maximize the potential benefits of social media engagement. Omni-channel CRM is able to rectify this inefficiency and provide increased value to both consumers and operators.

Northstream’s research approach involved a series of case studies and expert interviews covering the telecom industry, as well as the retail and finance industries. The most common identified challenge is in how to implement the transformation. This was a particular issue for those businesses with disparate systems, derived over the years from mergers and acquisitions, or those with critical legacy systems, products and services that have been patched and protected rather than renewed and replaced.

The interviewed operators recognize that the current multi-channel approach to CRM is not only incomplete but contributes to a deteriorating customer experience. As the customer moves across the channels, the dialogue with the operator or service provider is too often discontinued.

“Ironically, we found that knowledge about customers at the service provider end is becoming more and more incomplete as the different channels are not sharing their respective customer data. For instance, a customer’s online/self-service transactions or dialogue with a call center are often not visible to staff at the stores. One of the key benefits of multi-channels to service providers should be improved customer understanding and information, delivering an improved personalized experience,” said Northstream’s CEO, Bengt Nordström.

“The operators we interviewed all admitted that to improve customer satisfaction they need to improve seamless customer experience across all channels.”

Dr Andy Tiller, vice president of product marketing at AsiaInfo, said: “The research highlights that as business models have moved from single to multi-channel customer interactions, a lot of complexity and manual processes have been added. Omni-channel is the answer to reduce that complexity and provide a streamlined process to deliver better CRM and significant savings to the business. However, this can only be fully achieved through a fundamental IT transformation to next generation CRM architectures that deliver the necessary flexibility.”

12  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Micrium and Cortus Announce new uC/OS-III Port to Cortus 32-bit Processor Cores on: February 17, 2015, 04:34:13 AM
Weston, Florida, 17th February 2015 – Micrium and Cortus today announced that Micrium's uC/OS-III has been ported to Cortus' 32-bit processor cores based on the company's v1 instruction set (APS1, APS3R, APS5 & FPS6) and v2 instruction set (APS23 & APS25). Both companies' products have strong track records in the growing safety-critical and Internet of Things (IoT) markets. The new port will facilitate development of systems-on-chip with embedded processing.

"There is a clear trend toward increased use of real-time operating systems across a variety of markets," said Jean Labrosse, president and CEO of Micrium. "Cortus' 32-bit cores are ideally suited for use in both safety-critical and IoT applications, as are our embedded RTOSes, making this a highly complementary offering.

13  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Technology report confirms strength of start-ups in UK regions on: February 13, 2015, 04:55:09 AM
Bristol, UK, 13th February 2015 – SETsquared, Europe’s leading university business incubator, has welcomed new research showing the strength of the UK’s digital economy outside London.

The new ‘Tech Nation’ report by Tech City shows that the UK’s digital ecosystem is thriving and what’s more, it’s breaking away from its ‘London-centric’ mindset with 74 per cent of digital companies now based outside the capital.

SETsquared, a partnership of the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey, is cited in the report as one of the organisations helping to support a ‘hotbed for future technologies’.

Nick Sturge, director at SETsquared’s centre in Bristol, says the report highlights a growing trend for digital and technological innovation in regions outside the capital.

“What’s interesting about the report is that it has identified that regional clusters vary greatly in expertise and that a focus on certain capabilities by local education institutions has led to sector specialisms in certain clusters,” he says.

“This is something we have seen first-hand at our five sites across the South. Take for example Bristol and Bath, where we have high volumes of silicon, embedded, enterprise and mobile software development, data management and analytics and EdTech entrepreneurs.

"Meanwhile in Southampton, with its university excelling in health and engineering research, we have seen a trend of specialism in health technology and renewable energy. Similarly Surrey, with its university investing heavily in its 5G centre, we have an explosion of mobile technology and the Exeter centre's proximity to the MET Office means a higher proportion of climate change technologies.”

According to the report, 79 per cent of respondents Bristol & Bath say they have a network of entrepreneurs with whom they can share experience and ideas. Nick says this highlights the importance of partnerships such as SETsquared, which give digital and technology start-ups access to a huge pool of like-minded people and seasoned mentors.

He says: “The beauty of SETsquared is that it stretches across the whole of the South so entrepreneurs in Exeter, for example, can connect with peers in Surrey. This ‘wide net’ network is so important because, as the report states, each cluster has its own specialism and speaking to entrepreneurs with other specialisms can really benefit a business and help them identify new markets.”

Bristol and Bath, where SETsquared has two centres, are listed in the report as two of the areas with the highest levels of digital employment in the UK. There 61,653 are employed in the sector, coming second only to inner London where 251,590 are employed.

Nick says: “Companies based at our centres in Bristol and Bath and indeed our alumni companies there are seeing huge growth so these figures reflect what we’re seeing on the ground. The latest Bristol SETsquared member to graduate to alumni membership, after raising $12m, is planning to double its headcount as soon as it can.

SETsquared is a community supporter of TechNation and works closely with TechCity to share its 12 years of expertise in growing high tech start-ups. Since its inception SETsquared has supported over 1000 start-ups and helped them to raise over £1bn in investment. By 2025 SETsquared companies are expected to have added over £11bn to the UK GVA.
