La Suite Digital para Medios de INRIX proporciona a los periodistas  un conjunto de herramientas  fáciles de usar, así como contenidos que van más allá de la típica información sobre el tráfico, con el objetivo de ayudar a los conductores a evitar retrasos frustrantes gracias a una información única sobre las condiciones del tráfico en todas las carreteras principales  y calles locales, incluyendo los puntos de mayor tráfico en tiempo real, así como los previstos a lo largo del día y los tiempos de trayecto en rutas clave.

"Esto supone un nuevo mercado para la información del tráfico", comenta Nick Simmons, vicepresidente y director general de medios de INRIX. "Por primera vez, los medios locales tienen acceso a servicios operativos y profesionales que ofrecen información e inventarios de gran valor con tan solo unos clicks."

La Suite Digital para Medios de INRIX consiste en aplicaciones de radio y TV  que ofrecen a los periodistas herramientas sólidas y fáciles de usar (simplemente hay que "arrastrar y soltar") para crear informes de tráfico y editarlos. Gracias a la reducción del tiempo de recogida de la información sobre el tráfico, en solo unos minutos se pueden emitir noticias con información actualizada. A través de interfaces de usuario intuitivas basadas en la web, las aplicaciones de TV y radio de INRIX eliminan el tiempo que los periodistas pasan navegando por multitud de páginas web ofreciéndoles una visión global de las condiciones de tráfico para sus emisiones que incluyen velocidades del tráfico y tiempos de desplazamiento, mapas detallados del tráfico en tiempo real, alertas de retrasos causados por accidentes y otros incidentes, así como testimonios  de testigos presenciales en Twitter y Facebook.  A diferencia de los sistemas de tráfico existentes que exigen a las cadenas comprar un hardware caro y extremadamente difícilmente escalables, INRIX TV e INRIX Radio se pueden activar de forma inmediata y  ser escaladas para conectarlas con otros dispositivos, instalaciones de producción o áreas de cobertura deseadas.

Los beneficios específicos de las aplicaciones INRIX Radio e INRIX TV incluyen:

  • INRIX Radio: Diseñada de forma exclusiva para la industria radiofónica, INRIX Radio es una plataforma basada en software como servicio (SaaS) que integra de forma inteligente tanto las incidencias del tráfico como los datos de las causas, permitiendo la producción de noticias de tráfico personalizadas para cadenas de radio. Una vez que una cadena tiene una licencia de INRIX Radio activada, cualquier empleado de la radio con un navegador web puede usar la herramienta para crear informes de tráfico en tiempo real. La herramienta de generación de script  intuitiva de la aplicación ofrece la capacidad de ver el tráfico en tres paneles en directo en una sola pantalla,  ver actualizaciones de incidentes en tiempo real y filtrar dichas incidentes en función de las preferencias. Este enfoque dinámico, combinado con la interfaz de "arrastrar y soltar" permite reordenar y ajustar fácilmente  la información, según se necesite, hasta la emisión. INRIX Radio está disponible de forma inmediata en Norteamérica y Europa.  Las radios pueden activar una prueba gratuita de 30 días en www.INRIX.com/RadioTrial.
  • INRIX TV: La única aplicación de información del tráfico diseñada exclusivamente para informativos de televisión, INRIX TV es una herramienta de recogida y realización de informes que conecta con cualquier sistema de emisión para crear informes sobre el tráfico, visualmente muy atractivos y precisos.  Tanto si se informa desde el estudio, como desde el lugar de un incidente relevante, INRIX TV ofrece a los periodistas información inmediata no sólo de lo que los conductores pueden encontrar o esperar en sus desplazamientos cotidianos, sino del impacto en el tráfico de una gran tormenta, un accidente o un evento deportivo. La aplicación hace que ofrecer la información de tráfico del día sea tan sencillo como crear una película iMovie. Una vez que los periodistas han diseñado una plantilla de informe dentro de INRIX TV, el contenido se rellena automáticamente, permitiendo crear los informes en unos pocos minutos. La aplicación incluye funciones de salida directa a mesas de mezclas, así como componentes sociales que ayudan a integrar los testimonios de testigos presenciales vía social media directamente en las emisiones. Disponible de forma inicial en EEUU, Reino Unido y Canadá, INRIX TV estará disponible para descargar en la Apple App Store a Abril.

Una sola fuente para la mejor  información del tráfico disponible

Las aplicaciones de la Suite Digital para Medios de INRIX se nutren del contenido de información de tráfico procedente de la Plataforma INRIX Traffic Intelligence, un  análisis único en tiempo real de cientos de fuentes que van desde los sensores de carreteras del gobierno, informes oficiales de accidentes e incidentes, hasta la velocidad en tiempo real del tráfico recogida gracias a una comunidad de aproximadamente 100 millones de conductores. INRIX ofrece a los periodistas una cobertura en profundidad de las condiciones de tráfico que comprende autopistas, vías urbanas y otras carreteras locales muy transitadas. El análisis de los factores que tienen un mayor impacto en el tráfico, tales como las condiciones de circulación actuales, día de la semana, estación del año, vacaciones, condiciones meteorológicas actuales y previstas, accidentes y/u obras ayudan a los medios a ofrecer a su audiencia una información orientada al ahorro de tiempo en la que pueden confiar a diario.

INRIX presentará su Suite Digital para medios en Le Radio en Paris, Radio Days Europe en Berlin y NAB 2013 en Las Vegas. Para obtener más información, visite www.inrix.com/media.

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.
