Patent
Business of Software | Date: 2012-07-17

A system for determining a location for a mobile communication device includes a plurality of taps, a multiplexer, and a link aggregator. Each tap includes a pair of connectors that couple to a communication link of a radio access network inline and pass between them a signal received over the communication link. Each tap also includes a multiplexer connector that couples to a multiplexer and a cable connecting the multiplexer connector to the inline connectors. The tap replicates signals passing between the inline connectors and propagates the replicated signals to the multiplexer connector. The multiplexer receives, from each tap, signals replicated by that tap, extracts location data from the received signals, and transmits the location data to a link aggregator. The link aggregator receives the location data from the multiplexer and determines a location for one of the mobile devices based on the received location data.

Worldwide enterprise IT spending is projected to total $2.7trillion in 2012 (Gartner) & by 2020 it is estimated that the ICT industry will reach $5trillion (IDC 2012). Organisations are taking more services from the cloud & IT is considered a primary driver of business growth. The move towards the cloud will make it easier for users to get the applications they need, however this will lead to the provisioning of applications that are not utilized as intended, which will in turn lead to unnecessary compliance issues, hardware & software fees & reduced accountability. In today’s economic climate there is more pressure than ever to reduce IT budgets whilst maintaining/increasing services. Software costs make up a large proportion of IT budgets, however mkt research indicates that up to 75% of all software & services deployed by organisations are either not used or used sporadically & that less than 8% of companies are managing their software usage & tying into licences thus paying for what they actually use. The Business Software Centre Ltd (TBSC) seeks to develop an advanced usage tracking system ‘Rentsoft Meter’ to address this business opportunity. Rentsoft Meter will enable an organisation to collect info about what software is used, when & for how long. The system will aggregate info from many different sources & systems & create reports which show what is being used & not used & the costs of this. It will calculate potential cost savings for reducing wasted costs of software & running costs from non or low usage, & conduct analysis & prioritise cost saving opportunities. Once the user has this info they can choose to close down some items or re-negotiate supply contracts, saving money & streamlining processes. Rentsoft Meter will be targeted at medium-large orgs (public & private) where management of IT budgets are complex & the potential savings from using this system are considerable. Market entry is expected circa 3 months after project end.

The Business Software Centre Ltd (TBSC) works with public and private sector clients to assess and improve their software licensing efficiency. TBSC technology (Rentsoft Meter) gathers software usage information and sends this through to a cloud based application which analyses usage and compares this to their licensing costs and numbers of licenses purchased. Like all cloud based technologies, Rentsoft Meter can be open to security breaches if communications are intercepted. TBSC intends to conduct a security review to assess and improve the following: • Support for proxy servers • Encryption and identity standards used in Rentsoft Meter • Cloud firewall standards • Protection for interception of communication • Creation of a DMZ • Review policies and proceedures • Hosting standards • Risk assessment • Security alerts • Anti-virus standards • Security audit log

I first met Derek Sivers (who most people know best as the founder of CD Baby) at the Business of Software conference, but I’d heard about him long before that. In a world full of entrepreneurs who have done any number of incredible things, Derek has two accomplishments to his credit that are remarkable: He created a successful business, from scratch – then gave the business away to charity when he was done. Derek recently spoke at the Business of Software conference.  If you’ve got the time, you should go watch his presentation.  It’s inspiring. Even if you don’t, you definitely should pick up his book. Derek is the author of the simple, highly readable “Anything You Want”. It’s short, to the point and inspiring. Also, the book is published through “The Domino Project” by Seth Godin. Here are some of the most stirring ideas from that book to get you motivated: 1. Business is not about money. It’s about making dreams come true for others and for yourself. 2. When you make a company, you make a utopia. It’s where you design your perfect world. 3. Success comes from persistently improving and inventing, not from persistently promoting what’s not working. 4. A quick glance and common sense should tell you if the numbers will work. The rest are details. 5. “Revolution” is a term that people use only when you’re successful. Before that, you’re just a quirky person who does things differently. 6. When you’re on to something great, it won’t feel like revolution. It’ll feel like uncommon sense. 7. If you’re not saying “HELL YEAH!” about something, say “no”. 9. After we grew to 50 employees, people started pitching me on how I needed an official employee review plan, sensitivity training, Terms and Conditions postings, and all this corporate crap. I got such joy out saying no to all of it. 10. In a perfect world, would your website be covered with advertising? 11. Resist the urge to punish everyone for one person’s mistake. 12. If you find even the smallest way to make people smile, they’ll remember you more for that smile than for all your other fancy business-model stuff. 13. Don’t try to impress an invisible jury of MBA professors. It’s OK to be casual. 14. No matter what business you’re in, it’s good to prepare for what would happen if business doubled. 15. In the end, it’s about what you want to be, not what you want to have. 16. When you sign up for a marathon, you don’t want a taxi to take you to the finish line. 17. There’s a big difference between being self-employed and being a business owner. 18. Never forget that you can make your role anything you want it to be. 19. Anything you hate to do, someone else loves it. Find that person and let them do it. 20. Why he gave his company away to charity: I get the pride of knowing I did something irreversibly smart before I could change my mind. Most of all, I get the constant, priceless reminder that I have enough. 21. Whatever you make, it’s your creation, so make it your personal dream come true. So, what do you think? Are you working towards being happy?  What’s your favorite idea from the list?  Let us know in the comments below.
