Altre importanti novità e nuove funzioni per i'm Droid 2 saranno presentate al Mobile World Congress di Barcellona a cui l'azienda parteciperà dal 25 al 28 febbraio 2013. "Evolution takes its byte!".

Questo nuovo sistema operativo presenta delle rivoluzioni come: Smart tethering che minimizza i consumi della batteria, i'm Cloud, i'music che consente l'ascolto di milioni di canzoni on-demand, i'mages la rivoluzionaria applicazione che permette allo smartphone di diventare "l'occhio" di i'm Watch, trasformandolo in una fotocamera;  i'market centinaia di app pronte per essere scaricate ed installate per tempo libero, giochi, ufficio, utilità, musica, e molto altro qui nel comunicato stampa.

I lettori, in occasione di questo grande lancio, possono usufruire di un promocode di 50 € da usare nello store online http://www.imsmart.com (promocode IMWATCH2013 valido fino al 20 gennaio 2013)

Altra grande novità è i'm Here. Manuel Zanella, già inventore di i'm Watch e Massimiliano Bertolini, socio e sales director, che sono stati al CES insieme ad Ennio Doris, partner finanziario del progetto i'm Watch, vogliono essere fautori di una nuova "filosofia" che porti nella vita di tutti i giorni il concetto dello Smart Living, ovvero una serie di moderne tecnologie e devices che possano portare ad un miglioramento della gestione della propria quotidianità. Per questo, in occasione del CES e insieme a tutte queste novità, i'm presenterà in anteprima mondiale i'm Here, il più piccolo, bello e sofisticato tracker GPS che si preannuncia essere una grande innovazione perché "Smart Living" vuol dire anche "Safe Living". i'm Here è il primo geolocalizzatore che segnala la propria posizione e quella di altre persone e ha al suo interno una SIM card, realizzata grazie ad una joint venture con un'altra società del gruppo, Zeromobile. i'm Here è un tracker GPS da indossare in grado di identificare la propria posizione geografica quella di altre persone e soprattutto in caso di pericolo permette di inviare, premendo solamente un tasto, una chiamata SOS. Avere il proprio tracking geografico o quello di una persona cara è l'ideale in diverse situazioni di rischio che possono accadere nella vita di tutti i giorni: per le mamme terrorizzate di perdere i propri figli al mare, al centro commerciale o in montagna durante un'escursione; per le persone che fanno sport estremi come l'alpinismo o il paracadutismo; per i malati affetti da patologie che provocano disfunzioni sensoriali come la perdita dell'orientamento e della cognizione dello spazio in cui si trovano. E così basterà connettersi e in poco tempo si traccerà il punto esatto di dove si trova la persona che stiamo cercando. In caso di pericolo per noi stessi un semplice tasto farà inviare una chiamata SOS a qualcuno da noi preselezionato. Anche il design è innovativo, questo nuovo dispositivo ha tutte le carte in regola per diventare un nuovo e comodissimo accessorio fashion: oltre ad essere incredibilmente piccolo e portatile, i'm Here è anche indossabile. Si può mettere al polso grazie al suo cinturino o agganciarlo alla giacca, tenerlo nello zaino o nella borsa e portarlo comodamente sempre con sé. Per i bimbi saranno disponibili dei modelli ergonomici dai colori divertentissimi pensati proprio per loro.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
