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.

SportsMark selects WinMagic Encryption technology to protect critical data at London 2012 Olympic Games

WinMagic Inc., the global innovator in disk encryption, today announced SportsMark has chosen WinMagic’s SecureDoc data security and encryption software to protect sensitive corporate hospitality program data for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Of the many events SportsMark will be involved in this year, including Super Bowl, The Masters, and the America’s Cup World Series, the London 2012 Olympic Games will be a pinnacle event. SportsMark has been preparing for this momentous event for over four years, working side by side with its clients to create unparalleled guest experiences and optimize their brand building and sales objectives. SportsMark’s clients will host more than 45,000 guests throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games, working with a staff of over 1,000 and managing tens of thousands of Olympic event tickets on behalf of their 15 clients.

“We’ve been working with SportsMark for quite some time and we’re very pleased that they selected SecureDoc as their data encryption solution to protect the personal information of all the guests they’ll be hosting during the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said Mark Hickman, worldwide vice-president of sales at WinMagic Inc. “As an existing customer, SportsMark recognized the ease of use and flexibility of SecureDoc and we were more than happy to help ensure this continued for a project of this importance and profile.”

SportsMark’s information services team determined that they required a rapid OS and encryption deployment ready for a highly mobile and diverse workforce to securing log in onto any of their laptops at any of the locations.

“WinMagic SecureDoc was clearly the answer to our requirements,” said Scott Shuemake, systems engineer at SportsMark. “We needed an encryption solution that we could quickly and easily implement, manage centrally and provide all temporary staff with access to all the devices, so we had the flexibility to move staff around the hospitality venues across London, sometimes at short notice.”

SportsMark Group has contracted 1000 temporary hospitality event staff to work for the duration of Olympic and Paralympic Games in more than 15 pop-up offices around central London. These staff will be supplied with rented laptops that require the hard drive to be fully encrypted.

The technical solution consisted of 300 temporary licenses of WinMagic SecureDoc and SecureDoc Enterprise Server to install the SecureDoc packages and provide recovery. SportsMark also utilized WinMagic consultancy services to ensure the smoothest and quickest deployment in the fastest possible timeframe. At the end of the project, SportsMark will take advantage of SecureDoc’s Crypto erase feature to decommission the devices used for the event.

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.

According to the Overview of PCI Requirements, “PCI security standards are technical and operational requirements set by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to protect cardholder data.” It goes on to say, “The standards apply to all organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data—with the guidance for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions.”

Sisense’s Prism Is Designed To Democratize Business Intelligence And Bring It To The Individual Analyst Or Small And Mid-Sized Business

SiSense, a company that provides ad-hoc business intelligence software to individual analysts and small and mid-sized businesses, today announced general availability and pricing of its Prism software. SiSense democratizes business intelligence by letting users access raw business data just by clicking “connect”. Its desktop-based product allows any user to unleash the power of business intelligence, regardless of technical knowledge. SiSense’s Prism has strong analytics, reporting and graphing capabilities and is the only business intelligence software which doesn’t require IT support to work. No scripting or programming is involved.

“Our goal is to help individual analysts as well as small and mid sized businesses do a better job without taxing their resources”, said Eldad Farkash, the company’s Co-founder and CEO “All of today’s business intelligence tools require that data be moved and manipulated. This problem applies equally when people send each other excel sheets and when power users query an OLAP. SiSense eliminates the tremendous behind-the-scenes IT work that is necessary to make business intelligence work. We give our users the ability to work on their own desktop and access the raw data by themselves. Our in-memory technology serves the raw data in a manner that makes sense to users”.

Key Facts about Prism 1.0

Directly connects to MS SQL Server, My SQL, MS Access, Excel, csv files, Oracle, Google Spreadsheets and Amazon S3 logs Supports sharing and distribution in workgroups, allows real time and offline analysis Powerful analytics with an intuitive user interface Pay-as-you-go licensing model allows for flexible payment plans and no financial commitment. This is especially important in today’s financial environment and cost cutting requirements.

“There are two pieces to the business intelligence puzzle”, said Elad Israeli, the Company’s Co-founder and CTO, “connecting to a data source and expressing queries to analyze the data. While we support the intuitive expression of queries, creating reports, widgets and graphs, the key to democratizing BI is the connection to the data source, making raw data accessible and meaningful to users. Only when a user can click “connect”, access the data source with no intermediaries and immediately begin exploring it with our OLAP on the fly, then Business Intelligence becomes pervasive. We are proud to have accomplished this.”

Pricing

Pricing begins at $ 50 per month for a workgroup (and $10-20 a month for additional users). Free and personal versions (at $ 100/year) are offered as well. A trial version can be downloaded at https://www.sisense.com/register.aspx.

Loyal User Base

Since the product’s beta launch in March, the company has amassed 2,700 users, from companies on the Fortune 500 to small corporations, business intelligence analysts and consultants.

“I love SiSense. I use it to create professional dashboards for executive use. They are easy to create and yet provide in-depth detail”, said Shams Jiwani of Piedmont Healthcare.

“At Samsung Telecommunications Americas, we use Sisense to graphically display business performance metrics and present the results to our senior management, using color codes. Basically, we use SiSense as a dashboard that makes it easy to understand when performance is changing without having to go through endless numbers”, saidRichard Schrader of Samsung Telecommunications Americas.

“At Wix.com our challenge was analyzing user behavior. Our product is very complex and offers multiple user interactions and we needed a way to give management and analysts a way to data mine without asking the research and development department to create reports. SiSense’s Prism has been doing exactly this for us. It is very powerful, but has a simple User Interface that makes it as easy to use as Excel”, said Avishai Abrahami of wix.com

FactorySQL 3.0 and FactoryPMI 2.0, paving the way for a redundant web based SCADA system

Inductive Automation announces the release of industrial data bridge server FactorySQL Version 3.0 and web-launched SCADA server FactoryPMI Version 2.0. These releases include clustering and redundancy, features that virtually eliminate SCADA system downtime, while enabling cost-effective scale-out. Rounding out this release are an easy new charting component in FactoryPMI, and a new Block Data group type in FactorySQL.

FactoryPMI Version 2.0 and FactorySQL Version 3.0 are available immediately and are completely backwards compatible. Downloads can be found at http://www.inductiveautomation.com/downloads. Existing users can upgrade for free until July 1st.

Clustering and Redundancy
With the new clustering feature of FactoryPMI Version 2.0, system downtime can be reduced to a minimum. A multi-node server cluster is immune to single points of failure. In addition, client load is automatically spread out over the entire cluster for cost-effective scale-out, eliminating the waste of a hot-standby model. Best of all, configuring a cluster only requires a cluster name and optional password.

FactorySQL Version 3.0 features redundancy for mission critical applications. Redundant FactorySQL servers mean you never lose control of your system and ensure gapless historical data.

New Chart Component
With FactoryPMI Version 2.0, great charting gets even better. SCADA system designers can now create professional, interactive charts in no more than a few minutes. Historical or real-time, and easily printed or exported to Microsoft Excel, these charts are an invaluable tool for both the plant floor personnel and the executive management team.

Block Data Group
FactorySQL Version 3.0 features a new group type, the Block Data group. This new group type is designed to address a wide array of situations in FactorySQL that were previously difficult to configure. Block data groups allow the user to drag and drop OPC tags into columns, instead of rows, enabling quick and painless mirroring of OPC data in the database. Like standard groups, block data groups support full bi-directional communication, dynamic data addressing and triggering, opening up a large world of possible uses.
