New research reveals massive increase in open source component use

Fulton, MD, 11-Jul-2016 — /EPR SOFTWARE NEWS/ — Sonatype, the leader in software supply chain automation, today announced the release of its second annual State of the Software Supply Chain report. Based on the analysis of 31 billion download requests of open source software components from the Central Repository, which is managed by Sonatype, the report provides insight into the software supply chain practices from 3,000 development organizations and also includes software component analysis of 25,000 applications.

Key findings from the report include:

  • Supply and demand have never been greater
  • The number of open source component download requests increased dramatically to 31 billion in 2015 from 17 billion in 2014, an 82 percent increase year-over-year.
  • 10,000 new component versions are introduced daily across development ecosystems.
  • Component sourcing practices are inefficient and software vulnerabilities are pervasive
  • Enterprises download more than 229,000 components annually, but, on average only 5,000 component downloads are unique.
  • Open source components vary widely in terms of quality and 6.1 percent of downloads (1-in-16 components) include a known security defect.
  • Organizations struggle with vulnerable parts
  • Data from 25,000 applications demonstrates that 6.8 percent of components in use had at least one known security defect, revealing that downloads of poor quality components are making their way into production.
  • Parts age and grow stale quickly.  Older components (age 2+ years) used in applications are disproportionately less healthy and are three times more likely to contain vulnerabilities.

Industry is taking action
Top performing enterprises, federal regulators and industry associations have embraced the principles of software supply chain automation to improve the safety, quality and security of software.

Intranet Software Connects Employees to Management with Social Networking

Intranet Connections offers company managers a way to connect and share with employees as part of the latest release of their Social Intranet Software. The new Social Employee Directory introduces Message Walls designed to foster engagement, collaboration and the process of people helping people.

“Our goal with the new Social Directory is to impact how employees connect and learn from each other on the intranet, and how social tools like the message walls can help bridge the gap between management and employees,” says Carolyn Douglas, CEO of Intranet Connections. “We brought in common social tools that employees may have had exposure to outside of work, like the wall on Facebook, and the concept of personalization through widgets similar to iGoogle, providing employees an instant commonality and comfort level in using these tools to help them in the workplace.”

Employee message walls are at the heart of the new social directory, allowing employees to tap the collective intelligence of the organization and promote the concept of people helping people. Managers and executives can use the wall to impart the corporate vision, support the culture, and receive feedback in a very easy to use and collaborative environment.

Intranet Connections also uses the wall to promote and elevate intranet content. Every page on the intranet has a “Share Content” feature that will share news, videos, documents, calendar events, forms, training, photo albums and new job opportunities through employee walls.

Other enhancements include the ability to group employees by projects, abilities, skills, or interests through tagging. Employees can personalize with a private workspace in their social profile, creating widgets that will aggregate information from the site and external resources. Subscriptions, site and email alerts, bookmarks, online chat and status updates are all combined to create a powerful Social Employee Directory.

“The heart of your intranet is the people who make up a company,” says Carolyn Douglas, “and while our intranet software still caters to business tools, we wanted the people-centric power of social capabilities and felt the Employee Directory was the vehicle for that connection to take place.”

Business tools merge with social networking in this new release for Intranet Connections, available for evaluation and tours through the Intranet Connections web site at www.intranetconnections.com.

About Intranet Connections
Intranet Connections is out-of-the-box Social Intranet Software where people and business tools merge to get work done. More than 1600 organizations worldwide have chosen Intranet Connections as their social intranet solution.

Hovitaga Announces Its Report Generator To Accelerate SAP® Reporting And Cut IT Costs

Hovitaga offers a software add-on for SAP® systems that effectively reduces IT costs of SAP® customers. The product boosts developer productivity by automatizing repetitive tasks that otherwise would take much more time. Standard SAP® reports can be generated with a few clicks, without writing a single line of code.

“This solution gratifies real developer needs” said Ferenc Éles, SAP® developer and consultant working at Dunaferr, a major SAP® customer in Hungary. “The quality of this product is as high as the quality of standard SAP® tools” he continued after a free trial of the software.

Business decision makers often want to see ad-hoc reports on their business data. Mostly these requirements are fulfilled by the IT department by creating new reports. This takes hours or days, depending on complexity. Hovitaga Report Generator can reduce this to minutes, by generating the whole report source code based on an SQL query. Several hundred lines of program code can be generated, that otherwise the developers would have to manually program. The report is part of the standard SAP software development life-cycle, is fully compliant with the SAP developer guidelines and can be easily enhanced.

Frankfurt Partners Publish its Newest SaaS Valuation and Metric Research Report

Business Consulting firm Frankfurt Partners (www.frankfurtpartners.com) released the third edition of its biannual Software as a Service (SaaS) Valuation and Metric Report. SaaS remains a relatively new business model but it has a great potential for growth. As of 2010, it is estimated to have reached less than 20% of its potential market.

The largest proportion of SaaS customers so far are SMEs and medium-sized companies with relatively little break-through into the enterprise market. However, the level of adoption by enterprises is starting to increase rabidly. By the end of 2010, 80% of U.S. organizations will use at least one SaaS-delivered application for business use.

“The M&A Activities have picked up in the last 12 month as a array of companies are seeking to capitalize on the rising demand for SaaS solutions and trying to position themselves as a strategic player in the SaaS market”, says Rene Meister. “Given the attractive characteristics of SaaS companies from a financial perspective (i.e. strong growth, revenue visibility), it is not surprising that M&A activity for SaaS vendors has been strong.”

This report includes extensive benchmarking data about the SaaS Market. It is an invaluable resource for metrics and benchmarks for running a business based on the SaaS business model.

Reports key findings:
•Although many more companies are entering the SaaS market, most of these are providing SaaS as an extension to their existing product line.
•With a total asset value of $2,460 million stated in its end 2009 balance sheet, Salesforce is more than three times the size of its nearest rival.
•SaaS providers require around 50-70% more capital than traditional software companies before they achieve a positive cash flow.
•Pure play SaaS providers are the most valuable out of 23 categories of software companies.
•Mergers and acquisition valuations have generally fallen from an average of 6.2 times revenue in 2007 to 5.3 times in 2010. Overall Deal sizes have been fallen too.
•Successful pure play SaaS providers such as Netsuite and Salesforce.com are valued much higher then companies that still have traditional business models.

Intranet Connections Software Brings Simplicity to Intranet Administration

Intranet Connections has released the newest version of its intranet 2.0 CMS platform with the aims of reducing administration overhead for intranet managers and simplifying the design of site navigation. Intranet Connections version 10.5 targets small to medium size businesses wishing to have SharePoint-like functionality, but without the price tag or management overhead.

Carolyn Douglas, CEO of Intranet Connections, “Our focus is on ease-of-use and providing SMB’s with an out-of-the-box intranet that they can implement themselves. Version 10.5 provides intranet administrators with a simple solution that is easy to install, implement and manage on an ongoing basis, without the need for custom development.”

A key enhancement in the new release is the addition of a revised menu builder that features a drag and drop interface to manage site navigation. The redesigned interface allows administrators to add a horizontal menu to their site, create drop down menus, add menu headers and relocate menu items from the left main to the site header directly through the site interface. The new menu builder provides more flexibility to intranet managers wishing to customize their information architecture in a simple manner.

This latest release also builds on the popular tagging feature with the addition of a new content tag management interface. The robust tag administration area simplifies routine tag management tasks such as creating tag groups, moving tags between groups and finding tags with dynamically filtered search results. Admins can pre-populate and organize commonly used tags so that end users can easily tag and find relevant content.

Also included among the other features of v10.5 are an upgrade of the HTML editor to improve accuracy when composing complex document layouts or pasting from Word, an extranet friendly security model to simplify user-rights administration on intranet/extranet implementations and a new Multiple File Upload tool for improved ease-of-use, stability and performance.

BC Place Facilitates Internal Communication with Intranet Connections During Post-Olympic Construction

Intranet Connections (www.intranetconnections.com) is pleased to announce the intranet launch for BC Place, the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. BC Place launched their Intranet Connections Intranet 2.0 CMS Software in July with goals of improving corporate communication, increasing employee involvement, and enhancing information sharing within the organization.

After the 2010 Winter Games, BC Place was scheduled major construction to revitalize and modernize the facilities, including the largest retractable roof of its kind in the world. When the Administration team at BC Place learned that half of all full-time staff would be moving to temporary offices at the Vancouver Convention Centre and the other half would remain at BC Place, they immediately became aware that a corporate communication tool was needed to unify the two locations. The IT team spearheaded the project, identifying an intranet site as the best means to facilitate internal communication and provide a central repository for staff information.

In evaluating intranet solutions, BC Place knew they wanted to find a turnkey product that did not require any programming or custom development in order to get their site up and running.

“We ultimately selected Intranet Connections as an intranet solution because it was out-of the box and it required minimal administration overhead. Intranet Connections also came highly recommended, was proven in the market place and was developed by a Canadian company. We really liked the fact that Intranet Connections was a local organization.” says Winnie Mok, Information Services Manager at BC Place.

Brother Canada Engaging Employees with Intranet Connections Social CMS Intranet

Intranet Connections (www.intranetconnections.com) provider of the popular intranet 2.0 CMS software announces its flagship intranet software has been chosen by Brother Canada to help the company streamline business processes, increase employee productivity and enhance engagement and collaboration. Brother Canada will launch their new intranet with employees across the country this month.

Brother Canada, a branch of the 5 billion dollar company Brother Industries, Ltd offers a wide range of business machines and home appliances known for their affordability, reliability, ease of use, and versatility. These qualities are the cornerstones of Brother Canada’s success and the company felt that their intranet solution should embody these characteristics. Brother also wanted to find an intranet 2.0 communication platform that would allow them to establish a dialogue and encourage employees to participate within the organization. They did not want an intranet that would simply remain an archive of data and be driven from the top-down.

In searching for a new intranet solution, Brother Canada looked at a custom-built solution, open source software and Intranet Connections Intranet 2.0 Software. They focused on Intranet Connections after ruling out a custom solution as too expensive and time-intensive to set up.

“Intranet Connections suited us perfectly. It was an affordable and turnkey intranet solution that allowed us to be up and running with an intranet in a short amount of time. Value for the money combined with out-of-the-box collaborative tools contributed to our purchase decision.” says Vital Adam, Brother Canada’s Public Relations Officer.

Intranet Connections Software Drives the Intranet Forward with Collaborative Tools

Intranet Connections has announced the latest release of their intranet 2.0 CMS platform. Intranet Connections version 10 drives the concepts of a collaborative intranet forward by combining the core tools that streamlines business processes with the social collaborative features that encourage employees to connect through the intranet.

Intranet Connections Software Drives the Intranet Forward with Collaborative Tools

Carolyn Douglas, CEO of Intranet Connections, “Our focus is to bring a turnkey intranet to SME’s who do not have the resources to manage and build an intranet with a CMS like SharePoint. We provide a user experience that makes it easy from installation to implementation to on-going maintenance. Version 10 is all about showing how simple it can be for an administrator to manage the software, and for the end-users to interact and engage with their intranet.”

A key collaboration tool is the addition of an intranet chat client. As simple to use as Facebook chat, employees can tap the knowledge of anyone on the intranet. Chat widgets can be created for the intranet home page or department hubs to focus chat opportunities with company support techs, for example, or department reps. The new Employee Hub allows users to centralize and personalize their intranet experience and to interact and connect with the intranet. The hub provides an easy tool for employees to create a widget dashboard that pulls key information relating to their tasks and content throughout the site.

This latest release touches on automated processes that simplify the submission process of online forms within their popular e-Form Builder tool. E-Form Builder allows users to create electronic forms with a point and click interface and offers a robust search and reporting utility on form responses. A highly interactive multi-stage approval workflow process provides depth in functionality but keeps the user experience simple and intuitive on the front end.

Other v10 features include HTML web docs, community sites for departments and project teams, a new Site Designer role, and the ability to generate RSS feeds to consume intranet content through various channels, such as presenting Job Postings from the intranet to your public web site through an RSS feed.
