Industrial Supply Company, the largest privately held supply and tool distributor in the Intermountain West, has received ISO AS9120 certification, a prestigious quality management systems standard applicable to organizations that resell, distribute, and warehouse aerospace components. The standard was developed to address matters such as chain of custody, traceability, and availability of records. AS9120 is based on the general manufacturing standard ISO 9001, but is much more stringent and has almost 100 additional requirements specific to aerospace distributors, focusing on areas that affect product safety and reliability. The benefits of a distributor aligning with this standard are substantial. Streamlined documentation, improved audit and surveillance efficiency, and enhanced supplier performance are just a few of the advantages of being AS9120 certified.

Genymobile, the leader in Android virtualization solutions for the Enterprise, today announced the recent appointment of Benoit Bergeret, effective December 21, 2016, as Chief Executive Officer. A veteran of the mobile industry, Bergeret brings extensive experience in developing and growing mobile software and technology businesses globally, operating from Europe then Silicon Valley, where he has been residing since 2006. “I am thrilled at the opportunity to lead the Genymobile team through a new phase of growth and expansion, fueled by the outstanding technologies the team has dreamt and developed”, Bergeret said. “Our Android cloud virtualization products are opening up extraordinary new opportunities for mobile-first enterprises and mobile app vendors. Genymotion is now impacting not only their bottom line with the efficiency gains it brings to the app delivery process, but also their top line, as it enables new revenue streams.” The company is also announcing the immediate availability of Genymotion On Demand, a full Android operating environment running on instances on Amazon Web Services and billed per hour. With Genymotion On Demand, enterprises can develop new solutions on top of Android in the cloud, or extend their own solutions into the cloud, while only paying for actual usage. Genymotion on Demand has been developed with enterprise use cases in mind. Our team was able to shrink the cloud platform to fit a full Android environment in each virtual device; they have implemented a full, unrestricted user/physical interaction stack; all Android API interaction widgets; and have included full, high-speed custom 3D rendering stack in a web browser window, which can auto-adapt to the performance of the underlying AWS instance. “We have brought to AWS the same robust technology that made Genymotion so popular. With Genymotion, we have met the needs of over 5 million Android developers, and counting” said Arnaud Dupuis, co-founder and CTO. “We are now meeting the needs of the thousands of corporations who have made mobile apps the backbone of their future business, but who are slowed down by sub-optimal development, testing, integration, support and collaboration technologies.” With Genymotion On Demand, enterprises can manage virtual Android devices just like any other operating environment in a cloud setting. Any Android app can be launched from a web browser, only paying for actual usage, without long term contractual commitments. Apps can be launched in a web page, such as in an ad banner, or in “kiosk” mode. Android virtual devices can be cloned, scaled and automated. Apps can connect to Android virtual devices on AWS via ADB activated through specific settings by issuing ADB calls locally, and seeing those executed on virtual devices that are on AWS. Based on market feedback gathered from the recent early roll-out of Genymotion On Demand, we expect enterprises to primarily use it for: BYOD / Virtual Mobile Infrastructure (VMI) With Genymotion On Demand, only one app ‘master’ is used across all devices (Apple iOS included), and resides in the cloud, not on the devices themselves. Benefits include better security (no data is stored on the phone), streamlined mobile app management, lower support costs, completeness of deployment, no more difficult upgrade campaigns. Help desk / mobile app customer support Customer service representatives who support mobile app users can now just pop a virtual Android device into their web browser that precisely matches the phone type the caller is using, thus reducing support call duration, increasing quality of the interaction, and avoiding the costs of having to stock up with physical devices. Apps benchmarking / stress testing In order to prevent damaging load-induced mobile app crashes, enterprises use Genymotion On Demand to generate a massive number of users concurrently active on the mobile app by spinning a large number of virtual devices in the cloud, and measure the system’s response to this load. All virtual devices are shut down after the test is performed. Mobile Application Security Testing Companies deploying mobile applications are facing increasingly sophisticated threats that require complex testing. Using Genymobile On Demand, they can make sure their apps and data security is complete, efficient, well implemented, and relevant to the current threat levels, without having to test on physical devices, thus saving testing cost and time and accelerating apps deployment. Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) Genymotion On Demand can be used by enterprises implementing mobile threat defense strategies to defend mobile applications from advanced threats. Using only virtual devices and scripts simulating user activity, Genymobile On Demand simplifies the setup and operation of mobile threat defense systems by removing the need to use physical devices and actual users. Applications Performance Monitoring Businesses that want to reduce the opportunity cost of losing unsatisfied users due to poor performance of their mobile applications when services are altered by bugs or lack of performance. To detect and/or prevent this, Genymotion On Demand enables end-to-end testing strategies by making it easy to use mobile apps in multiple concurrent scenarios to test back-end applications and services. Online advertising of mobile apps Using on-demand Android virtual devices, mobile apps can be served and used inside displayed ads for on-the-spot testing, without APK download or install, thus increasing conversion rate. Ad campaigns A/B testing - competitive analysis To assess the effectiveness of a mobile ad campaign vs. a competing campaign towards different target groups of users or potential customers, agencies can simulate on the virtual device the app user journey and collect data about displayed ads, for various cohorts of users with predefined behaviors and usage profiles. Genymotion On demand is offered in three versions: Genymotion On demand usage is priced per hour. Although we make recommendations for certain AWS instance types for each version, the choice of the AWS instance to run the Genymotion On Demand virtual device on is left to the user.

CINCINNATI, Feb. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) – a trade association for the retail industry to promote and protect the interests of its members – recently held its annual Supply Chain Conference in Orlando, FL, Datalliance reports. The three-day conference featured speakers from some of the largest retail brands like Abercrombie and Fitch, Neiman Marcus, Walmart, REI, Finish Line, and Home Depot. However, the company that drove much of the conversation did not even attend the show. Amazon’s influence on the retail industry was repeatedly mentioned in keynote addresses, breakout sessions and talk among attendees. Retailers understand that efforts to cut costs and shorten delivery times are changing how retailers view their replenishment strategies. Free shipping for an item used to mean waiting a week for your package. Now, there is pressure in the industry from online retailers, like Amazon, offering free same-day deliveries in limited areas. Retailers are working hard to keep up by focusing on omni-channel replenishment to keep products on the shelf and available online. Greg Sandfort, CEO of Tractor Supply Company, delivered RILA’s Supply Chain opening keynote. In his address, Sandfort discussed the importance in creating a supply chain that was responsive and reliable, “If I can’t get the product to the customer at any time and any place – I’ve failed.” As it has become apparent that the digital world can bring profits; budgets and stock allotments that were once marked for retail initiatives are being rethought. These changes are also guiding service providers like Datalliance, a leading vendor managed inventory and collaborative replenishment software company. “Forward-thinking manufacturing brands realize they need to adjust,” said Tom Hoar, Director of Sales for Datalliance. “We have meetings with global companies that want to know if our vendor managed inventory software can help get their products to retail shelves and manage their inventory for e-commerce. The answer is an absolute yes and that is very appealing to manufacturers as they want to increase revenue and in-stock percentages with their long-standing retail partners, but also meet the needs of digital storefronts.” About Datalliance Datalliance is the world’s largest provider of technology and services to support collaborative replenishment programs such as Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and related approaches. Delivered as a cloud-based platform and backed by extensive customer care, Datalliance makes it easy for trading partners to establish inventory management relationships that increase sales and profits by fully aligning business objectives, increasing on-shelf availability, optimizing turns, and reducing supply chain costs. Datalliance manages billions of dollars in orders, millions of SKUs, and tens of thousands of locations worldwide for leading companies in consumer and industrial markets.

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Hypori, a leader in secure mobility, announced it has obtained the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 1 certification for cryptographic modules from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), making it the first virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) provider to receive the difficult certification for a virtual mobile device. The certification approves Hypori’s virtual mobile device as a method for federal civilian agencies, intelligence communities and military branches to secure data and applications that would otherwise be vulnerable when stored on a physical mobile device. The Hypori virtual device’s FIPS 140-2 certification is the latest in a long line of certifications and validations from federal standards bodies, regulatory agencies and research partners. It follows a Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) and inclusion of the Hypori client on the National Security Agency (NSA) Commercial Solutions for Classified Program Components List. Furthermore, Hypori is the only VMI vendor to meet requirements for the NSA Mobile Access Capabilities Package. Hypori was also granted a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate in 2016 that has since brought new features into production. This most recent FIPS certification for the virtual device complements the same level of certification for the Hypori client and a FIPS 140-2 compliant mode for the Hypori server, during which the server only uses FIPS 140-2 cryptography. “The needs and requirements specific to federal agencies are complex but also paramount to national security and keeping our government operating efficiently,” said Bill Moore, director for public sector at Hypori. “We’ve been particularly homed in on ensuring that every facet of the Hypori platform, from end to end, meets those requirements, making us the only legitimately certified option for government agencies of every type and tier.” Government agency leadership, CIOs and IT organizations are increasingly understanding the benefits behind virtualizing mobile devices to run applications and process data in remote data centers or the secure cloud. Hypori’s virtual device is being used in federal government use cases ranging from defense agencies that rely on situational awareness, secure communications and mission-critical applications, all the way to first responders that need to use mobile devices while responding to emergencies but cannot risk storing any sensitive apps or data on a physical mobile device. At Hypori, we are passionate about mobility. We believe that secure mobility does not have to come at the expense of end user privacy or usability. Founded in 2011, we have built a user-centric solution to address mobility and compliance requirements, especially for regulated industries including healthcare, financial services, public sector and payments. Hypori's virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) platform provides the rich mobile experience users expect while keeping all enterprise data and applications completely off the user’s device.
