Develop and Deploy APIs Faster with New SwaggerHub Integration to Apigee

SmartBear Introduces New Integration for Development Teams to Quickly and Easily Deploy their API Definitions to Apigee’s Edge API Management Platform Directly from SwaggerHub

SOMERVILLE, Mass. – July 27, 2017 – SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for teams, announced a new integration between SwaggerHub, the integrated API design and documentation platform built for teams, and Apigee. This new integration enables teams to quickly and easily deploy and sync their API definitions with Apigee’s Edge API management platform directly from SwaggerHub.

Organizations across all industries and geographies are increasingly leveraging APIs, be it for accelerating software delivery times with internal APIs or driving strategic initiatives and revenues with public APIs. For an organization’s API programs to be successful, apart from great design and documentation, there’s also an important need for effectively managing the API’s consumption. To allow users to seamlessly go from design and documentation, to deployment and management, SmartBear’s SwaggerHub has developed the integration with Apigee Edge.

“SwaggerHub is recognized as the leader in collaborative API design and documentation for organizations to quickly deliver quality APIs,” said Ole Lensmar, CTO at SmartBear Software and Chairman of the Open API Initiative. “Using the latest SwaggerHub integration with Apigee Edge, customers can easily deploy their API definition as a proxy to Apigee’s powerful API management platform directly from SwaggerHub, allowing them to seamlessly go from design and documentation, to deployment and management.”

SwaggerHub is the integrated API design and documentation platform for OpenAPI (Swagger) based APIs. SwaggerHub allows development teams to drive consistency and discipline across the entire API development workflow. The platform is developed and maintained by the same team behind the popular open source Swagger tools.

Apigee, owned by Google, has become one of the leading providers of API management solutions in the technology landscape, allowing organizations to manage complexity and risk in the multi- and hybrid cloud world across the API lifecycle. Apigee enables over 300 customers and partners to strengthen their API security and expand its reach to the right audience. Apigee Edge is a platform specifically aimed at developing and managing APIs as proxies with value added features like security, analytics, quotas and more.

TCS New York City Marathon App Wins Gold at Best in Biz Awards 2017 International

TCS Recognized in the App of the Year Category

NEW YORK | MUMBAI, July 27, 2017: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has been named a Gold winner in the ‘App of the Year Category’ in the Best in Biz Awards 2017 International, the only independent global business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications from around the world.

Almost 300 public and private companies, hailing from all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries, competed in Best in Biz Awards’ fifth annual International program. TCS won for its new and innovative marathon app features, including live, on-map tracking of up to 20 runners in real-time, an interactive map to guide users through the TCS New York City Marathon Health and Wellness Expo, ‘connected’ maps of the race course and subway, a vibration alert when tracked runners crossed the finish line, and more.

As a result of its features that bolstered the spectator and runner experiences, the app was ranked as the top free sports app and featured as a best new app in the Apple App Store on Race Day. It was also downloaded more than 317,000 times, which is the most ever for the TCS NYC Marathon or any other global marathon.

“With 2+ million on-site spectators lining the TCS New York City Marathon course and 51,000+ runners, the mobile app’s new enhanced tracking capabilities have enabled friends and families to see on a map the exact whereabouts of their runner(s), knowing exactly where and when to cheer and offer encouragement,” said Surya Kant, President, North America, UK and Europe, TCS. “We are excited that the race app continues to break new ground in terms of downloads and engagement from users around the world. Recognition from Best in Biz International is a testament to our promise of making the TCS New York City Marathon the most technically advanced race in the world.”

In addition to being the title sponsor of the TCS New York City Marathon, TCS is the first-ever premier partner of New York Road Runners (NYRR), applying its technical excellence and resources to the organization’s prominent five-borough races throughout the year, and acting as the principal supporter of all youth and community initiatives.

“It is always an honor and a pleasure to be asked to judge one of the categories in Best in Biz Awards International,” said Didi Cardoso, editor-in-chief, Gamers Intuition. “In my fourth year participating as a judge, this was the most challenging decision yet. All the nominees for Executive of the Year had equally impressive and innovative ideas, and they certainly didn’t make my task any easier.”

Winners in the fifth annual program were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of judges hailing from a wide spectrum of top-tier publications and media outlets and from 15 countries and all continents. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panels. Each year, only editors, writers and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards can best leverage the expertise, experience and objectivity of its influential judges to determine award winners.

New web interface for IBM i performance management solution makes it easier to keep a continuous eye on performance

SUPERMON® for iSeries provides an at-a-glance view of IBM i system health for remote and mobile users

PETERBOROUGH, NH – July 27, 2017 – The new web interface for SUPERMON for iSeries, the IBM i performance management solution from SoftLanding® Systems, a division of UNICOM® Global, provides an easy, convenient way for companies to keep a watchful eye over the performance of their entire network of IBM i systems.

The SUPERMON for iSeries web interface displays real-time metrics for multiple IBM i systems in an interactive performance dashboard, as Jim Fisher, SoftLanding Operations Manager, explains:

“The new web front end gives technicians an easy way to stay in touch with how the system is performing when they are working remotely, or are on the move. No matter where they are, users can view charts and graphs of performance right across the network and be alerted to potential problems before they escalate.

“This high-level graphical view is also ideal for companies who rely on non-IBM i technicians to monitor overall system health. Performance status is displayed using green, amber and red colors, so it’s easy to see if all is well or if there’s an issue that needs handing over to IBM i specialists for further investigation.”

The new web interface tracks a range of important metrics related to CPU, disk and memory usage and efficiency, as well as transaction response times and batch throughput. Alerts are displayed when important thresholds are close to being breached and users can personalize their own sessions, for example by choosing to view data as charts, bars or ‘traffic lights’, or by embellishing charts with additional information.

The development follows UNICOM Global’s announcement of its new Universal Gateway (UniGW®) management dashboard in May and is further evidence of the company’s commitment to making performance information more meaningful and accessible, according to Russ Guzzo, UNICOM’s VP of Sales:

“It’s important to put performance data into a business context and provide the right level of information for the right users, so they can make informed decisions. Our dashboard approach cuts out complexity and reduces the need for specialist knowledge while still allowing expert users to go deep into the detail when they need to.”

The web interface is available to all SUPERMON for iSeries customers with a current license.

SUPERMON for iSeries provides real-time performance monitoring and control of IBM i servers from a central point of control. The software enables performance issues to be pinpointed before they become critical; resources to be utilized more effectively; and costly capacity upgrades to be deferred for longer.

SoftLanding’s IBM i products and solutions are commercially available through UNICOM Global’s UNICOM Systems and Macro 4 divisions. For additional product information please visit the SoftLanding website.

SmartBear Opens New APAC Headquarters in Melbourne, Australia

Continued Global Expansion Driven by Demand for SmartBear’s Industry Leading Software Quality Tools

SOMERVILLE, Mass. and MELBOURNE, Australia – July 24, 2017 – SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for teams, today announced at the Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit the opening of its Asia-Pacific region (APAC) Headquarters in Melbourne, Australia. The company is experiencing tremendous international growth fueled by the demand for SmartBear’s industry leading software quality tools.

Improving software quality under tight product release schedules and decreasing budgets is a worldwide imperative that all software development organizations face, while expectations of application performance and reliability have only increased year over year. With more than 37 percent of the world’s software developers located outside North America and Europe, SmartBear has seen demand for its products beyond more traditional IT markets.

To support this demand, SmartBear is establishing its APAC Headquarters in Melbourne, Australia to offer training, sales and support to regional customers, partners and the greater tech community across local time zones. SmartBear joins other major tech companies that have chosen Melbourne for APAC offices for the region’s significant customer base, a growing talent pool as well as Melbourne’s vibrancy and culture.

The establishment of an APAC headquarters follows dramatic expansion of SmartBear’s EMEA Headquarters in Galway, Ireland earlier this year.

“Growing internationally is a large aspect of the continued growth of SmartBear, and we’re thrilled to announce the opening of our APAC Headquarters in Melbourne,” said Darin Welfare, Vice President of International, SmartBear Software. “Melbourne’s unique location and a diverse, active tech community make it an ideal location to accelerate our APAC operations.”

“The Victorian Government is excited to welcome SmartBear Software as they join Melbourne’s vibrant tech ecosystem,” said Philip Dalidakis, Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade. “SmartBear joins the growing list of significant tech players who are setting up headquarters in Melbourne, attracted by our skilled and innovative workforce and our reputation as the world’s most liveable city.”

SmartBear currently has offices across five countries and reaches customers in over 190 countries. Further expansion is planned into the APAC region with a presence in India later this year.

New SQL Monitor release extends insights into VMware performance

Cambridge UK, Tuesday 25 July – To improve the experience of running SQL Server inside virtual machines, Redgate Software has added support for VMware to version 7.1 of its popular SQL Server monitoring tool, SQL Monitor. Users can now quickly – and easily – identify if performance concerns are being caused by an issue within SQL Server or VMware.

While monitoring the performance of SQL Server can be achieved using custom scripts, the growing complexity of SQL Server estates is increasing the requirement for tools like SQL Monitor. As well as reducing daily checks from hours to minutes, with a web-based overview that updates every 15 seconds, it addresses the changing nature of the way SQL Server is being used.

The need for the VMware feature, for example, has emerged as the practice of using virtual machines grows. Once a risk-prone exercise, the advantages it offers, such as more effective load distribution, flexible provisioning, and the availability of additional tiers of redundancy, has made it commonplace.

But while the VMware platform offers benefits for SQL Server users, it also presents challenges. With other virtual machines running on the same host, each SQL Server instance now contends for the CPU, memory, network and physical I/O subsystem.

The result? Performance issues can be caused by problems with VMware rather than SQL Server, and tracking down those issues adds to the burden of administering a SQL Server estate, particularly if there are multiple instances.

The new version of SQL Monitor automatically detects any SQL Server instances running on virtual machines and presents VMware- related performance data in the Server Overview page.

“Behind the scenes, we’ve spent a lot of time developing really valuable VMware metrics,” says Mark Champion, Redgate Product Marketing Manager. “But the real key to their usability is how users access the information. Rather than having to hunt for them, the overview is presented through a constantly updated graphical interface. It’s immediately apparent whether a problem is down to SQL Server or VMware, and the problem can be investigated further through an analysis page.”

The metrics for monitoring VMware include times when the CPU of a virtual machine is under-provisioned, where VMware is trying to reclaim memory, or when the physical host is under load. When issues like this arise, users can see in seconds the real cause of a drop in performance and, importantly, know what they need to do to resolve it.

The development team at Redgate is now working on other features that have been requested by users like the ability to configure and filter alerts so that, over time, SQL Monitor can be trained to know which alerts are the most important to individual users.
