ASG Software Solutions Launches Mobius Luminist for iPad Access to Corporate Content

In response to increasing mobile workforce trends, ASG Software
Solutions today announced the availabilty of ASG-Mobius Luminist,
allowing users to easily access corporate content stored in an
ASG-ViewDirect® repository directly from an Apple iPad®. Not only does
the intuitive app increase mobile workforce productivity by allowing
anytime, anywhere access to information, but it also improves security
and cost savings by ensuring content access through existing, approved
Suite brings together all of an organization’s content, regardless
of type, platform or environment, to provide a unified view of corporate
information. Now, with ASG-Mobius Luminist, that unified information is
accessible via an easy-to-use app, improving remote or in-the-field
worker efficiency while removing information bottlenecks from having to
go through the home office to get access to critical content. With
native iPad monitoring features and available applications,
organizations can also ensure the security and regulatory compliance of
sensitive information by removing the Luminist app or wiping the device
in the event it is lost or stolen.
“Information security is a concern for IT decision makers amid the
growing mobile workforce trend,” said Erin McCart, director, solutions
and product marketing, ASG Software Solutions. “Moreover, business
managers are looking to make their mobile workflows more productive.
ASG-ViewDirect is widely deployed across multiple industries, including
7 out of the top 10 commercial U.S. banks, as listed by Fortune 500,
many of which store, on average, more than a terabyte of information.
The Luminist iPad app gives such customers direct access to that
critical information, whenever and wherever they need it, without
sacrificing information security.
“This is one of the reasons we focused on making the Luminist app
extremely easy to use; because, as long as Luminist remains simple and
intuitive, employees will be less likely to circumvent approved
corporate policies, IT procedures and systems to access content via less
secure means – like storing information on their personal devices or in
a consumer cloud environment, which puts the company at risk of
violating compliance policies.”
With the ASG-Mobius Luminist iPad app, users can browse through folders
to find the documents, reports and files they need, or use the search
feature to locate content that meets specific criteria or key words.
Users can also save searches, folders and documents as “favorites” for
quick access to high priority items. For example, sales teams can now
have fingertip access to the latest reports, inventory counts, product
descriptions and customer orders for faster customer inquiry response
times and improved sales. Or, to simplify logistics, the Luminist app
makes it easy to view up-to-date bills of lading, packing lists,
manifests or other documents required for managing inbound and outbound
“With the mobile workforce predicted to reach 1.3
billion people by 2015, and with 58
percent of mobile tablet users preferring iPads, companies need to
support this trend with a secure, yet easy way to access corporate
information,” said Dietmar Wendt, executive vice president of global
sales and marketing, ASG Software Solutions. “ASG-Mobius Luminist for
the Apple iPad is an easy-to-adopt, easy-to-learn, efficient, secure and
cost-effective way to make information in ASG-ViewDirect available
wherever and whenever employees are working. It lets companies control
the use and location of sensitive information while also complying with
corporate compliance regulations.”

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.
