News

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., January 10, 2005 – Funambol, the mobile open
source software company, today announced that CA, one of the world's
largest information technology (IT) management software companies,
has licensed Funambol’s mobile application server for use in its
products targeted at managing smartphone devices in the enterprise.

At its recent CA World user conference, CA previewed new management
technologies under development that address the management of
smartphones. “Enterprise IT organizations know they have to do a
better job of managing and securing the smartphones they’re using to
maximize the productivity of their mobile workforces,” said Marc
Camm, vice president of smartphone solutions at CA. “By utilizing
Funambol’s standards-based mobile application server, CA will enable
customers to manage and secure their smartphones in a common manner
with their other enterprise assets – thereby simplifying operations
and ensuring consistent implementation of management across the
enterprise.”

Mobile email continues to gain momentum in the enterprise, driving
increased use of sophisticated and diverse mobile handsets. The
multitude of mobile device types has made device management a serious
issue in business networks. Systems managers need to be able to
remotely monitor, configure and manage mobile handsets and are
leveraging new standards from the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) to
accomplish these critical functions. Funambol’s mobile open source
application server is the standard implementation of the OMA Device
Management standard (popularly known as SyncML) that supports a
compatible, ubiquitous environment for management of mobile phones
irrespective of handset vendor.

“The diversity of mobile handsets has increased the complexity of
managing fleets of devices among networks,” said Fabrizio Capobianco,
CEO of Funambol. “Funambol’s mobile open source software eases device
management by allowing customers such as CA to provide a central,
standardized and compatible environment for the devices and networks
they support.”

96Boards SBC showcases Mediatek’s deca-core Helio X20

MediaTek launched the fastest open-spec SBC to date with a 96Boards development board that runs Android on its deca-core Cortex-A53 and -A72 Helio X20 SoC. The “Helio X20 Development Board” is MediaTek’s first 96Boards form-factor single-board computer, and the most powerful open-spec hacker SBC to date. Although we’ve seen some fast 64-bit SoCs among 96Boards SBCs, such as the HiKey, based on an octa-core, Cortex-A53 HiSilicon Kirin 6220, the Helio X20 Development Board offers an even more powerful Helio X20 system-on-chip processor.

Leftovers: OSS and Sharing

  • New projects, security, and more OpenStack news
  • LibreOffice 5.1.4 Released with Over 130 Fixes
    The first release candidate represented 123 fixes. Some include a fix for a crash in Impress when setting a background image. This occurred with several popular formats in Windows and Linux. Caolán McNamara submitted the patches to fix this in the 5.1 and 5.2 branches. David Tardon fixed a bug where certain presentations hung Impress for extended periods to indefinitely by checking for preconditions earlier. Laurent Balland-Poirier submitted the patches to fix a user-defined cell misinterpretation when using semicolon inside quotes.
  • Open source. Open science. Open Ocean. Oceanography for Everyone and the OpenCTD
    Nearly four years ago, Kersey Sturdivant and I launched a bold, ambitious, and, frankly, naive crowdfunding initiative to build the first low-cost, open-source CTD, a core scientific instrument that measures salinity, temperature, and depth in a water column. It was a dream born from the frustration of declining science funding, the expense of scientific equipment, and the promise of the Maker movement. After thousands of hours spent learning the skills necessary to build these devices, hundreds of conversations with experts, collaborators, and potential users around the world, dozens of iterations (some transformed into full prototypes, others that exist solely as software), and one research cruise on Lake Superior to test the housing and depth and temperature probes, the OpenCTD has arrived.
