Robotic Process Automation Technology

In our highly competitive ever-connected era, organizations are looking to create the most efficient environments possible. In this momentum, Robotic Process Automation Technology brings up more flexibility. NRI’s Prime Settlement Service (PSS), Japan utility service for investment banks, will incorporate Robotic Process Automation (RPA)to automate manual processes for post-trade operations. One can learn that, Robotic Process Automation Technology (RPA) will be applied to the payment record processing phase of post-trade operations, where the input and reconciliation of data are typically still performed manually.

Increasing demand for streaming video technology by companies across all industries

Steadily and surely organizations ranging from individuals and small businesses, majors to major media corporations are adopting streaming video technology to improve communications with employees and customers.
They also use streaming video technology to unlock data and insights from video, get new value and more.IBM estimates cloud-based video will be a $105 billion market by 2019. IBM Cloud Video that integrates several technologies, aims to support the increasing demand for streaming video technology by companies across all industries.

Key smart city venture capital players

I have a pleasure to recall that, ABI Research finds that Urbantech, Civictech, and GovTech are quickly becoming established terms for designating the overall smart city ecosystem, technology, and investment environment. Key smart city venture capital players include Fontinalis Partners, General Catalyst Partners, Goldman Sachs, GovTech Fund, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Motorola Solutions Venture Capital, New York Angels, and Vista Equity Partners. The groups invest in technology vendors like law enforcement information management software vendor Mark43 and smart communication solutions provider Avaya. GovTech merger and acquisition activity is also ramping up, as evident through OpenGov’s acquisition of Open Data and Ontodia.

The twin challenges of funding and deploying smart city technologies

Steadily, one can observe that, local governments face the twin challenges of funding and deploying smart city technologies to guarantee the continuous provision of mobility, communication, energy, water, accommodation, healthcare, education, and security services while ensuring livable, affordable, and sustainable environments for citizens in the wake of fast global urbanization. New paradigms like citizen participation, data capitalization through mobile sensors in smartphones and vehicles for informational services, and acceptance of the overall sharing economy will allow governments to adopt smart city technologies at minimum costs. According to ABI Research, unlocking underutilized private resources through car sharing, micro-grid home energy networks, charging stations, private parking, and accommodation sharing will allow governments to meet surging demands for services in a cost-effective way while avoiding expensive physical infrastructure extension projects. Such smart fundin…

Rag-time Data Processing Frameworks

For those who are unfamiliar, Real-time analytics is the ability to perform analysis and produce insights over live data in near real-time.
Real-time Data Processing is on an exciting curve as the benefits of greater agility through real-time insights and decision making for businesses is becoming apparent. One can observe that, in response, a new breed of technologies and tools is becoming available that support real-time data processing in a fault tolerant, scalable and cost effective way which is helping to drive its adoption. There are three commonly used open source stream processing platforms namely Storm, Storm Trident and Spark Streaming on a continuous metrics computation task.

Critical Challenges to Threat Intelligent Sharing

Unfortunately, the security industry continues to face critical challenges in their efforts to share threat intelligence between entities, among vendor solutions, and even within vendor portfolios. For many analysts, addressing these challenges will determine the effectiveness of cybersecurity teams to automate detection and orchestrate responses, and ultimately tip the cybersecurity balance in favor of defenders. McAfee Labs Threats Report: April 2017 details the challenges facing threat intelligence sharing efforts, probes the architecture and inner workings of Mirai botnets, assesses reported attacks across industries, and reveals growth trends in malware, ransomware, mobile malware and other threats in Q4 2016.
