As noted in the certification report for this product, Solarsoft iVP demonstrates a high level of Read More

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Two: RFID Compliance


Provia's approach to radio frequency identification (RFID) compliance was to offer a bolt-on or drop-in product that works in conjunction with a company's existing logistics transactional software solution and process flows. This should put the suppliers back into control of prioritizing their IT projects because they could supposedly thereby be fairly easily and quickly made compliant with Wal-Mart or the DoD requirements for RFID. The next step for them would then be to look at how they can reap the benefits of RFID internally within their own operations.

RFID Workbench: Understanding the Basics


Radio frequency identification (RFID) helps actualize the perfect integration of logistical and commercial chains and its use is rising in the US and Europe among large companies; government departments; and industries. Setting up RFID requires a validation test on a defined perimeter that involves the processes that have the most direct impact on your activity to see how RFID will affect your environment.

The same process is now ongoing with RFID, in areas where bar codes reach their limitations. The limitations of bar codes are well known: Around 10% reading error Linear reading (one code follows another), therefore slower than a broadcast reading The reading often requires human intervention (moving and orienting the object for scanning etc.). The need for the Read More

No Back Doors. No Open Windows.


To boot or pre-boot, that is the question. There’s no doubt that operating systems (OSs) are complicated given the sheer amount of code that must be flawlessly interfaced and the potential vulnerabilities that can ensue. While full disk encryption (FDE) is one step closer to a more secure OS, encryption without strong authentication isn’t enough. For security-conscious users, pre-boot authentication is the only way to go.

Domain-specific Modeling with MetaEdit+: 10 Times Faster than UML


Bridging the gap between an application’s problem domain and its code can be difficult, even for the best software engineers. Bridging these two diverse worlds—each with its own language—requires a finished application that creates an intersection between the two. By building a domain-specific modeling (DSM) language and generator using MetaEdit+, engineers close the gap and pave the way to better productivity.

Sizing Applications for 2D Barcode Symbols


When it comes to two-dimensional (2D) symbologies, less is more. While 2D bar code symbols may be less costly to print, they are considerably more expensive to read, because of the complexity of developing decode algorithms. However, with the integration of public domain 2D symbologies into a range of application standards, solutions employing these codes are beginning to reach their full potential.
