Espial Will Also Demonstrate Innovative RDK Client and IP Back-Office Solutions
OTTAWA, Dec. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Espial, a leader in on-demand TV software and solutions, today announced that it will be exhibiting and presenting at the 2012 RDK Developers Community Conference to be held Dec. 11-12 at the Marriott Marquis hotel in New York. During the event, hosted by Comcast and Time Warner Cable, Espial president and CEO Jaison Dolvane will participate in a panel discussion titled "RDK Development: Application Framework," on Dec. 11 at 2:15 p.m. Additionally, Espial will demonstrate innovative Reference Design Kit (RDK) client and IP back-office solutions.
MSOs are actively evaluating RDK solutions as part of their strategy to provide leading-edge HTML5 user experiences. By standardizing set-top box (STB) and gateway software components, RDK allows content developers, OEM manufacturers, and cable operators to leverage the benefits of a standardized STB software stack. The key promise is to accelerate the deployment of next-generation STBs and gateways with a fully powered HTML5 browser. The RDK Developers Community Conference is set to drive the adoption of RDK by providing a forum for professional training and networking opportunities for cable operators and development partners such as Espial.
"As a strong supporter of open technology and Web standards, Espial believes RDK is an essential ingredient for MSOs to deliver next-generation user experiences to consumers," said Dolvane. "Cable operators will also benefit from dramatic reductions in time and expense required to quickly deploy advanced STBs in their networks, while simultaneously driving their own user experience roadmap and development cycle. Our demonstrations at the 2012 RDK Developers Community Conference will enable cable operators to witness the power of RDK in delivering a richer television experience that includes advanced user interfaces and social media integration, all driven by an IP service delivery platform."
As part of a panel discussion that includes executives from a variety of RDK partners, Dolvane will discuss a detailed framework for successfully delivering cutting-edge video user experiences on next-generation STBs and multiscreen devices harnessing the power of HTML5 and IP. The discussion will be moderated by Leslie Ellis, technology analyst for Multichannel News magazine. At the technology showcase, Espial will demonstrate a compelling RDK-based user experience including an interactive program guide, integrated social media, and cross-device use cases on multiscreen platforms.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
