Computer Manufacturers Shifting Their Focus to Start-Ups


Sun Microsystems and Gateway have announced initiatives designed to make their products and services more appealing to start-up companies, especially those where cash may be a little tight.

By providing turnkey solutions, Sun's iForce should help them extend their leadership in Web infrastructure. Start-ups who build their infrastructure around Sun/Solaris architecture are less likely to switch brands. (There's only one Sun, there are plenty of Intel-architecture brands.) Because of the competition present in the Read More

Legacy Single Sign-On: Novell, Evidian, IBM, PassGo, or Computer Associates?


As the complexity of enterprise systems increases, users are often forced to remember more and more passwords. As the demand on users increases, many users choose to write down their passwords, and by doing so, jeopardize security.

As the demand on users increases, many users choose to write down their passwords, and by doing so, jeopardize security. Even if the users never do anything to compromise the organization's security, they are more likely to forget passwords when multiple passwords are required. The resulting constant password resets can amount to an Read More

Gaining Competitive Advantage through Global Product Development


Product development is a mission-critical process. And it can also be very expensive. But thanks to modern computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, many manufacturing companies now have the tools that allow better alignment of cost and value-add. This is what’s referred to as “global product development.” Learn more.

Consequently, many of the offshore IT services companies jumped into this adjacent business opportunity, while a new class of pure play business process outsourcing (BPO) firms was created as well. All of which brings us to today's opportunity in Product Development: Global Product Development. The Basics of Global Product Development Read More

Program Testing Methodology Part One: Preparing for Testing


Program testing and debugging is one of the most critical aspects of implementing a computer system. Without programs which properly work, the system will never process information and produce the output for which it was designed. Testing procedures should be established and testing roles should be demarcated between the programmer and the analyst. Once this is done, test data that can test the limits of the program should then be created.

computer hardware  be tested on the computer using test data. To properly test the program there must be good test data available. In all applications, the programmer should use data to test the program which has been designed specifically to test the routines within the program. Test data should be designed to test main routines first. When it is found that the main routines produce the desired output, additional test data should be created that tests all other routines. This data should contain both valid and invalid Read More

Another Type Of Virus Hits The World (And Gets Microsoft No Less)


A number of anti-virus vendors, including Trend Micro and Computer Associates, have warned of a virus with a new approach. It is known variously as QAZ.TROJAN or QAZ.WORM, and was officially renamed to W32.HLLW.Qaz.A in September. The virus enters via unprotected shared drives and usually replaces the Notepad.Exe application, although there have been occasions where Notepad was not the victim. The virus then provides a backdoor to outside intruders, giving them in effect remote control over the computer that has been infected. This analysis contains some suggestions to protect your machines.

The Advantages of Using Hardware-based TCP Fan-out for High-Performance Messaging


Multicast-based messaging systems are limited in use to point applications under very controlled conditions due to their tight coupling to the Layer 2 network, lack of management and control, and lack of robustness. This white paper explores the key disadvantages of multicast, and explains the benefits of a hardware-based solution with embedded support for point-to-point ‘unicast’ distribution and message routing.
