So where is RFID on the business drawing boards? We examine the outlook of RFID trackers as well as strategic goals of one Cambridge, MA-based company behind a red-hot RFID reader with Linux.

From document management to mobile Linux  View Printable Version 
Monday, January 03 2005 @ 09:42 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceFrom Open:

How many of you remember the term "Document Management?" This was an app well-publicized in the 1990s, described as helping government and businesses manage their files and forms through the complete content life-cycle. With advances and more options in generating content, that life-cycle has become more sophisticated, and more challenging to track and manage.

Enter Enterprise Content Management, an outgrowth of document management. This week, we talk to John Mancini, the president of AIIM, who explains why ECM has confounded many a CEO, but why that situation is changing.

Fault Tolerant Linux  View Printable Version 
Saturday, December 18 2004 @ 03:34 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceFrom Open:

We're at that point of the year when technology managers for e-retailers obsess over how to make sure their servers stay up and running for holiday sales. Many sites use clusters to provide high availability, but some analysts maintain that clusters have less availability than non-clustered systems. What's the alternative?

Double the normal parts and add specialized software and hardware to make a fault-tolerant system that is totally transparent to end users and IT alike. NEC is celebrating more than obsessing, over its new NEC FT server running hardened Linux. This week, we talk to an NEC spokesman about NEC's latest FT Linux-based server. He tells us what obsessively hard work went into making it a solution aimed at the heart of retail, manufacturing, and any other industry dependent on mission-critical business.

Niku Corporation needs no introduction to CIOs like Rick Berk of Brown Brothers Harriman. That firm has been using Niku's Workbench for project scheduling and management for years. So when Niku turned Workbench into an open source project, Berk was delighted. IT management would be all the more under control at BBH. To learn what he means and what Niku means by converting a commercial product to open source at a time when MS Project is a $700 million cash cow, click on this week's look at Open Workbench.

Firewalls made easy  View Printable Version

Open SourceFrom Open:

One topic that everyone might wish were old news is pollution on the Internet. Everyone's gone hacking, phishing, and spamming, and the poor IT manager faces tough decisions. Balancing security concerns with users' demands to communicate hassle-free is not a very delicate balance. We are especially gratified to offer this week's report, which provides real answers for every IT manager security-plagued.

That answer is in a low-cost Linux firewall that targets SMB sites stranded because of little in-house expertise andOn a less troubled note, an IT manager this week reports on how very happy he was to discover a desktop Linux distribution that provides ease, comfort, and enough money left over to buy some decent guides on firewalls. Read his story on BizDesktop 4.0 from ELX, an India-based company on the move.

Last issue, we relayed all the good reasons to celebrate SLES 9 and the Linux kernel; however, there is another open source operating system that must not be ignored: FreeBSD. This issue, we report on a new book about FreeBSD where its authors peel away at the proverbial onion to get at FreeBSD's design and implementation.

Keeping the Open-Source Spirit Alive in a Commercial World  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 10 2004 @ 12:20 AM CST

Open SourceFrom CIO Today:

In theory, the open-source concept is simple, elegant, almost utopian: thousands of developers contributing their skills to continually improve and refine a piece of software for the common good.

Yet, in recently months, the Open Source Development Lab (ODSL), a nonprofit consortium that oversees Linux development, has imposed new policies that -- at first glance, anyway -- seem at odds with the very notion of "open."

Apple: Open-source pedigree will protect Tiger  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 03 2004 @ 12:51 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceFrom News.com:

Apple Computer is banking on the open-source heritage of its operating system to spare Tiger, the fifth version of the software, from the security woes that have dogged Microsoft.

The operating system update is due to debut in the first half of 2005, and Apple executives reckon the open-source nature of the product means it's inherently more secure than certain proprietary offerings. The OS, which was first launched in March 2001, is is based on the Unix platform.

Bertrand Serlet, senior vice president of software at Apple, said Wednesday that having a greater number of people keeping an eye on source code leads to better software security.

"A lot of security problems derive from the core," he said. With open-source code, "thousands of people look at the critical portions of source code and...check those portions are right. It's a major advantage to have open-source code."
