The Windows Vista release is the longest development cycle in Microsofts history. With this release come many changes to the Graphical User Interface (GUI) including the new graphics subsystem Aero ""Glass"", a new security model using User Account Controls (UAC), changes to the Windows Firewall and additional Internet protection around phishing and malicious attacks. This white paper from Pervasive focuses on the various challenges these new implementations may pose when adopting Windows Vista. The key change in Windows Vista is the UAC requirement.
This paper published by Pervasive describes the purpose of this paper is to provide software developers and ISVs information that will assist in the process of selecting a database for packaged application customers in the small to midsized business market. Because of the lack of IT resources, databases for SMB customers must be extremely reliable and require little or no maintenance.
This paper discusses about Technical Paper: .NET Data Providers for Pervasive.SQL. The Pervasive PSQL data provider is an ADO.NET managed data provider, built with 100% managed code. The data provider is a native wire protocol provider, which means that the data provider will not have to call out to unmanaged code - code outside of the .NET Framework - in the form of a database client. The .NET platform promises to simplify the process of web enabling applications and creates a new paradigm for Windows-based developers by allowing them to leverage additional key technologies.
Outsourced service providers succeed by effectively handling a large number of customer data feeds. Companies that can quickly and efficiently master a large number of customer data feeds will be able to take on more customers, resulting in opportunities to grow revenue more rapidly. Major concerns that must be addressed in building, maintaining, and leveraging customer data feeds revolve around data demands, mapping needs, communication protocols, and reformatting for business partners. This paper discusses these concerns and provides insight into developing effective solutions for outsourced service providers, including companies engaged in business data management and processing, billing services, etc.
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) offers a fresh approach - a more adaptive architecture for business integration that provides more flexible technologies such as Web Services, Asynchronous Messaging, Business Process Management (BPM), and the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). However, most SOA implementations today require unwieldy and management-intensive custom code - developed, in particular, to solve the ?Last mile? integration problem. The addition of rapid and reusable Integration Processes can address this problem by establishing an adaptive integration layer between the high-level business process and the IT infrastructure.
