JFrog's Artifactory is an advanced repository manager that helps development teams gain significant efficiencies in both the build process and in acquiring reliable open source components. The Black Duck Suite automates open source approvals, governance and compliance across the development lifecycle.

The integration between the two products offers developers an automated, non-invasive approach to the open source component approvals process, in addition to proactively monitoring for security vulnerabilities that may be associated with specific binary components. License, security vulnerability and approval status, amongst other data, is pulled from the Black Duck Knowledgebase and delivered through Artifactory Pro, helping developers make the best component choice during the open source selection process. The broader integrated solution supports all programming languages, provides governance for both open source and 3rd-party source and binaries, and scales beyond language-specific repository management approaches to meet the needs of global, distributed enterprises.

"Our solutions were designed from the start to support all languages, binaries and source code," said Tim Yeaton, President, Black Duck. "By partnering with JFrog and integrating JFrog Artifactory with the Black Duck Suite, we provide a complete open source management solution that covers OSS components and artifacts of all languages and sizes, from snippets to binaries. No other solution offers comparable scalability, simplicity of use and comprehensive code governance. Customers can have confidence that only approved components are being used, meeting the needs of today's global, distributed enterprises."

"JFrog's suite of services provides developers with a user experience second to none, and this partnership only enhances that. An Artifactory developer-centered partnership empowered by the Black Duck KnowledgeBase is a knockout combo," said Shlomi Ben Haim, JFrog CEO. "Developers now receive 3rd party license, scanning and security vulnerability information through Artifactory during build time. This solution can be hosted locally and turns the development, release and Continuous-Integration flows into a much more efficient process. Developers can finally get managers off their backs and nothing makes us more excited! We look forward to continued collaboration with Black Duck, and will keep enriching our users with more features that promote their efficiency seamlessly."     

According to Gartner Research Vice President Mark Driver, "As the use of open source binaries continues to accelerate within the enterprise, repository management solutions are becoming a core element in the devops infrastructure helping with standardization, efficiency and reliability. Integrating open source governance within this important entry point for open source components provides visibility and helps manage risk, including both IP and potential security vulnerabilities."

JFrog is the first and only vendor that provides OSS, commercial and cloud-based repository management with dedicated integration with the world's leading build tools and continuous integration servers. With more than one million users worldwide, Artifactory reached 15,000+ installed servers in 2012 and over 10,000 downloads per month. Customers include Netflix, Twitter, Oracle, EMC, Apple, LinkedIn and many more.

Developers at more than 1,000 enterprises worldwide use Black Duck to increase innovation by using approved, secure and supported open source components at scale. The Black Duck Suite provides a comprehensive, automated approach to governance and compliance that spans the software development lifecycle and scales to support thousands of developers across widely distributed teams. The Suite automates key processes including code acquisition, approval, scanning, cataloging, validation and monitoring.

The integrated solution will be available later this month in upcoming releases of both Artifactory and the Black Duck Suite.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
