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.

Today Celerant Technology marks its 10th year in business as a leader in the retail software industry. Since October 13, 1999, Celerant has developed advanced software for retailers from a variety of locales and vertical markets.

“To celebrate ten years in business is an important milestone for our company and we are very proud to have reached this pinnacle” stated Celerant Technology President and CEO, Ian Goldman. “We are thankful to have employed such a talented and hard working staff of individuals over the years, to develop and maintain every facet of our software, and provide the outstanding customer service we have become known for. Since starting out as a small retail software provider in Staten Island, NY, we have come a long way, with now 5 satellite offices and 450 clients in various retail markets.”

The Celerant product, Command Retail, manages all areas of a multichannel retail business, from the point of sale on the front end, to inventory management, warehouse, distribution, allocation and advanced reporting on the back end, to seamlessly integrated E-Commerce and mail order/catalog. Celerant Technology has been recognized by several trade publications and continuously receives top scores in industry rankings.

“Ten years ago today when Ian and I established Celerant Technology, there wasn’t software like ours on the market,” stated Celerant Technology’s CFO. “We knew that the idea behind the Celerant system would serve as an excellent solution for retailers, but, like any new business, it was difficult to say if our company would be a success. Now, we can say that because we’ve worked hard over the past decade to produce a high quality product, we’ve been able to make a highly recognized name for ourselves in the retail software industry. As for the future, I believe that Celerant has the potential for continued growth and I look forward to an even greater level of success in the years to come.”

OpenCRM UK – Hosted Alternative for Salesforce.com, ACT!, Sage CRM, GoldMine

CRM Software crafters Software Add-ons based in rural North Yorkshire, UK, are delighted with the response to their recession busting marketing campaign for OpenCRM.

The company’s strong mission statement, ‘to bring corporate software technology within the reach of small to medium businesses’ seems to be the key to their success.

Marketing manager Helen Burton revealed ‘we knew we had a strong message, offering license free software, but our campaign has had the phones ringing off the hook!’.

Consumer expectation is driving the mid market business need to get online , OpenCRM’s free license solutions needed to be internet based with portal capability so customers can place and track orders, see cases and issues, download documents & information – Anytime, Anywhere access is a major boost for the previously disconnected workforce.

John Mabley of ITS describes his software as the glue between the systems – ‘I employ home teleworkers and need them to be connected to the office – OpenCRM integrated my telephony system, website and SageLine 50 accounts so that I can get a complete picture of my business day-to-day no matter where I am’.

Managing Director Graham Anderson speaking for the company said ‘all businesses whether corporate or mid market have similar core business processes, Sales & Marketing – Sales Order Processing – Invoicing – Document & Project Management,’ he added that ‘too many software implementations fail because too much money goes into the purchase and licensing of software, by supplying license free on demand software we remove this cost and our clients can put their investment where it should be: requirement analysis ; staff training; and systems integration’.

OpenCRM’s advice, based on years’ of experience, is very clear: Choose a technically sound solution with an open structure (non proprietary database & interface) that will scale and integrate; encourage user uptake – keep IT simple, go for evolution rather than revolution, invest in your people and spend on training; Get rid of as much of the IT headache as you can by having your software systems hosted, managed, updated, secured and backed-up by the professionals.

The 2009 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding; making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.

Optimalon Software Has Released Version 3.0 Of Its Linear Programming Solver Giplas32

Optimalon Software released a new version 3.0 of Gipals32. This version provides even more power then ever before by supporting the capacities of modern high performance processors (CPUs).

More and more companies try to reduce costs and optimize their operations in the current economic times. The most popular mathematical method to reduce operational cost with limited resources is the linear programming (LP). It has been heavily used in such areas as company management, logistic, planning and production. It doesn’t matter how big or small a company is, if it needs to optimize any part of its business the linear programming can help, but there is a catch. LP cannot be used directly; it usually works as a part of the company’s systems, such as logistic, scheduling or planning applications. There are thousands of custom-built software systems that use LP as the optimization engine.

The developers of these systems only convert the particular custom problem into general LP form and call the LP solver. After the LP problem is solved the system gets back the results and transform them into custom solution. Such architecture allows using the same LP optimization engine for different custom-built systems and therefore the developers can focus on the business logic, without getting involved into the complicated LP implementation.

Optimalon Software (http://www.optimalon.com) provides the linear programming optimization engine Gipals32.dll. It’s powerful, yet affordable solution for many software companies and individual developers. Gipals32 can easily find a solution or state a solution doesn’t exist for any kind of linear programs with an unlimited number of variables and constraints.

Marketing director Denis Smirnov:
“Implementation the support of SSE2 and multi-core CPUs has improved Gipals32’s performance dramatically. In some cases we got the calculation speed increased by 5 (five) times. The numeric stability of the calculation has been improved for the new version as well. Gipals32 can now solve poorly defined LP problems that didn’t yield any solutions before.”

More information about the Gipals32, its features and performance can be found at http://www.optimalon.com/product_gipals32.htm

Gravity is a technology which allows developers to create platform-native applications – for Mac, Windows and iPhone – all without programming! Cloud developers use Aurora to specify the application elements – menus, windows, content display areas, etc. – and Gravity connects to the cloud to load, assemble and launch the live cloud application as a native platform application. This gives users more choices for cloud computing and even has the potential to make AJAX/web technologies irrelevant.

AJAX/web-based cloud applications IDEs and clients
Advanced AJAX/web programming tools and libraries, web browser-based cloud applications can take advantage of the innovative features that the ObjectsOnClouds Platform has to offer.
