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.”

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
