Bond would be up a creek without a gadget should his arch-rivals get their hands on Blancco Mobile Edition, an application designed to eliminate the risk of inadvertent data leaks by erasing retired smartphones that may contain sensitive business and/or personal information. Capable of erasing up to 150 such devices per day, Blancco Mobile Edition helps IT security managers set and enforce end-of-service policy related to smartphones, an area frequently overlooked as a source of data breach. The application was developed for erasure of smartphones running major platforms like Symbian, RIM for BlackBerry, and Microsoft; support for Android-based platforms is slated for late 2010.
The role of xTuple's new Drupal-based Web Portal is to extend the firm's open-source CRM, accounting and ERP applications to the Web. The xTuple Web Portal, which can be hosted on-premise or through an xTuple Partner, enables companies to improve customer service, establish an internal help desk, build deeper relationships with partners or suppliers and engage end users of the company's products. Once a conversation is initiated in the xTuple Web Portal, an incident is created automatically that users can categorize, prioritize and assign. In addition, users can create opportunities, to-do lists or even full projects from that initial incident. One can utilize all three xTuple editions on the Web Portal, namely the free xTuple PostBooks, xTuple Standard and xTuple Manufacturing.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
