Jence Incorporated Releases NineSYNC, a Server Level Database Synchronization Web Services Software

(PRWEB) February 3, 2005

NineSYNC is a database synchronization web services program. This database synchronization program allows heterogeneous databases to synchronize target database with source database. A comprehensive mapper allows the user to select the tables and datatypes of the source and map them to the target database.

NineSYNC Difference

NineSYNC differentiation is it is a web service. The advantage of web service is that it works over firewall using HTTP/HTTPS protocol. The program will reside on a server anywhere in the world and controlled by client programs. Another added advantage of using a web service is that the program is callable by any web services enabled application regardless of the language used to develop it. NineSYNC does not require that the source and target database exist on the server where NineSYNC is installed. The source and target databases are seen as IP addresses with a user name and password. The web service will remotely connect the two databases using those addresses.

Supported Databases

SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Postgresql, DB2.

Mapper Feature

The mapper interface may be able to map data types of source database to target database on a column by column basis. The only restriction is that the primary keys have to be identical.

Periodic Scheduling

NineSYNC may be set up for periodic synchronization daily, weekly or monthly.

Stop and Pause Mode

This allows you to pause database synchronization and then resume at your will. If the synchronization is paused, then when resumed, the web service continues from where it left off, if the source database has not changed.

Report Generation and Log Files

Log files are created for each synchronization. The log files are XML based and the web service client have the option to generate HTML report from the log file.

Client Graphical User Interface

The web service also comes with a client graphical user interface, which includes a mapper interface, user login, account creation screen, database synchronization scheduler. Future version will also have a file synchronization interface.

Operation

The web service called NineSYNC appears as a URL string. The client contacts the URL using this string and fetches the WSDL file, which describes how the web services need to be used. The client makes the calls described in the WSDL to communicate with the web service. Once connection is made, the client simply calls the routines synchronously to the web service. When the synchronization starts, the client may logout without terminating the synchronization operation. The client may later come login and check the status of the operation. Log files and mapper file may be printed or viewed on a web browser.

Server Requirements

1. Apache Tomcat v5.5, Sun Appserver 8, IBM Websphere, or other compatible Java App Servers compatible with servlet 2.3 specification.

2. Minimum 1 GB RAM. Ram requirements may increase for larger databases. One million row synchronization requires at least 1 GB.

3. Java Virtual Machine 1.4.1 required.

4. At least one of the following databases required for user management: MySql, Oracle, SqlServer, Postgress, DB2. Sybase, Informix and Derby will be supported soon.

5. High speed internet connection is needed.

6. Valid IP address need for source and target databases.

Clent Requirements

1. Java Virtual Machine 1.4 or above required.

2. No minimum memory requirements, but at least 64 MB RAM recommended.

3. High speed internet connection is not required, but recommended.

Sales and Support

Jence Incorporated will provide six month free support. Support contract are available on an annual basis. Please contact sales@jence.com or call 781-962-1462 for more sales and support information.

HENNINGER MEDIA SERVICES Celebrates 30 Years by Designing Its Facility of the Future


Arlington, VA (PRWEB) October 10, 2013

On the heels of celebrating its 30th anniversary as a leader in technology, innovation and creativity for the video production/post-production industry, Henninger Media Services ("HMS") solidified its commitment to the D.C. media market by signing a long-term lease for a brand new space at 1320 North Courthouse Road in Arlington, VA. The new ground-floor location will feature a customized build-out of over 20,000 square feet, with room to expand and ample parking. Construction will commence later this year, with a targeted move-in date of Spring 2014. HMS will design its facility of the future with an eye toward capitalizing on the rapid technological advancements in the media industry, applying green design and construction principles, and taking full advantage of its 25-foot ceilings. What will not change with this move is the HMS culture—a fun, collaborative environment among its staff and clients. "We owe the success of our first 30 years in business to the thousands of amazing people who have passed through our doors, and we look forward to continuing these relationships through a new doorway for years to come," says Rob Henninger, the company’s Founder and CEO.

The new location is within blocks of HMS’ current facility—the unassuming building at 2601 Wilson Boulevard—that has been home to the media company for the last 25 years. That space, which is actually five smaller buildings knit together, has seen constant adaptation, change and remodeling as Henninger has led the way through every major industry advance. "We’ve reached a point where the old infrastructure and installs get in the way of the new workflows and technology," says Sam Crawford, HMS’ Vice President of Technology. "Starting with a clean slate is an exciting opportunity. We will not only create an ultramodern facility, incorporating the years of experience and knowledge that has gotten us to this point, but we will also build in the flexibility needed to easily adopt future technologies."

The 30-year legacy of HMS would not be unfolding today without the acumen and fortitude of one person, Rob Henninger. However, if you had asked Rob about his life’s ambitions and goals in high school or college, starting a media company would not have been among them. At the time, the visionary behind HMS aspired to be an actor and playwright. After graduating from the College of William and Mary with a degree in theatre and speech, he joined the Washington Theatre Club, only to soon find himself transitioning into the role of film gaffer, soundman, and ultimately editor. Then, in 1983, Henninger realized he was on the ground floor of a rapidly-changing video industry and saw an opportunity: "I found a Sony Beta I editing system that I could use to edit video offline using the techniques and style that I used to edit film. It worked pretty well, but back then the bigger challenge was the costs incurred at the online facilities. I started thinking of ways to improve quality and efficiency while reducing costs, and I realized that the best way to implement those ideas was to start my own place." Thus, in a small sublet space in Rosslyn, VA, Rob launched Henninger Video. Rather than writing plays and acting, Henninger was soon busy helping filmmakers bring their scripts to life on the screen.

As the business grew and moved to successively larger spaces, finally moving into their current space in 1988, HMS’ influence on the industry steadily grew as well. HMS was among the first companies to embrace digital video, non-linear editing, digital audio, and many more technologies that have since become commonplace in today’s media landscape.

Since its inception as Henninger Video, the media services company has always deemed providing exceptional client service, both creatively and personally, as the company’s highest priority. "I feel there is an inherent dignity that grows out of good service," says Henninger. "It’s an art in itself and reflects our fundamental commitment to our clients’ success." While technology continues to change, it is the human element that is the heart and soul of the company. Eric Hansen, HMS’ Chief Operating Officer, identifies with the family-like culture at the company. "I have always been in awe of the talent and expertise that roam the halls of HMS," shares Hansen. "It’s not just about a group of individuals having 10, 20, 30 years of experience in the media industry. For most people who work here—staff and clients alike—it’s about having 10, 20, 30 years of experience with each other. This level of camaraderie, collaboration, and loyalty is a rare thing these days."

As the company moves into its fourth decade, Rob Henninger looks forward optimistically. "As one of the foundational pillars of HMS—‘Best in Innovation’—we will continue to embrace emerging technologies," Henninger shares. "We strongly believe that being at the forefront of change allows us to offer the most comprehensive services to our team and clients; creating the best environment for creativity and success." Most recently, HMS announced its capability to master projects in 4K Ultra HD. With the expansion of technology comes the attraction of new clients. "As we've implemented new strategies, we have been able to draw the attention of media companies outside of the D.C. Market," states Hansen. "We've developed strong relationships with clients in New York and Florida over the past couple years, with high-profile projects ranging from sports programming to reality series and documentaries."

In addition to celebrating a landmark anniversary and building a sleek new facility, HMS has other reasons to celebrate. Earlier this year, long-time HMS client Fine Films won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short Subject with "Inocente," which was post produced at the HMS facility. A number of other client films are doing well on the festival circuit, thanks in part to HMS’ quality work. The company is also rapidly growing its business through collaborative "four wall" partnerships with independent producers, production companies, as well as some networks—its current facility of more than 35 post-production suites has been operating at near or full capacity, and the company looks forward to building on this new concept in their new facility. With a growing and diverse roster of clients and projects, Henninger Media Services is building for the future, writing its own script for many more years in D.C.’s media industry.

Power Generation Equipment Upgrades by Turbine Technology Services Contribute to Improved Performance


Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

Turbine Technology Services Corporation (TTS), a full-service gas turbine engineering services firm based in Orlando, Florida is playing a critical role in the upgrade of power generation equipment worldwide by modernizing control systems’ hardware and software to improve the operational performance of gas turbines.

It has been almost 30 years since microprocessor-based control systems were introduced in the power generation industry and—as is typical with electronics—the time to effective obsolescence of these systems has been relatively short. Advances in reliability, capability, flexibility and in the ease of use have been significant over this period.

Case in point, much of the turbine control system HMI and operator interface equipment that was installed in the 90’s and early 2000’s have become obsolete by current industry standards, prompting gas turbine operators to seek upgrade/migration advice from trusted global power engineering providers such as TTS.

In response to these industry challenges, TTS now offers GE gas turbine operators complete HMI upgrade solutions to bring these operator interface systems up to current standards.

The TTS solution is based on Industrial Turbine Service’s Turbine Monitoring System (TMOS) software, an established industry product which has been successfully applied around the world in the replacement of the original GE (I) and (HMI) product line.

These HMI upgrades from TTS provide an improved graphical interface that retains the features of the original operator interface product while adding powerful new capabilities and features including improved unit data acquisition, storage and analysis. These upgrades also provide innovative solutions to the system architecture and communication limitations imposed by the original systems.

“Aging, obsolete equipment increases the risk of failure, potentially leaving turbine operators unable to run or monitor their units,” said Pat Begley, VP of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Asia at TTS. “HMI upgrades are a very cost effective solution for this particular problem.”

Over the years, TTS has performed numerous HMI upgrades for power generation customers, giving the company a unique insight and experience to address the needs of the industry—from system design and network architecture to hardware installation.

HMI upgrades from TTS are featured in September’s edition of Power Magazine and can be downloaded following this link: http://www.powermag.com/considerations-when-upgrading-gas-turbine-hmis/.

Fortier Insurance Services Now Has a Business Owners Policy at an Affordable Price

Phelan, CA (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

One of the most important decisions as a business owner should be to purchase a Business Owner’s Policy. A business owner needs to realize that things don’t always go according to plan. Having a Business Owner’s Policy protects the salon owner from unforeseen circumstances. It not only protects the business’s assets, but also the clients.

A Business Owner’s Policy combines Property coverage and Liability coverage. Property coverage covers the building and the business’s personal property. If anything happens, the salon is quickly rebuilt or repaired. This could involve damage like a sewer and drain backup, broken windows, or computer breakdowns. Also included in a BOP is “Loss of Income.” If, for example, the damage to the building and/or the salon is so extensive that the salon is shut down, then not only will the business owner be compensated for lost income, but moving expenses as well.

General Liability coverage covers the business in the event of a lawsuit as a result of someone slipping and falling on the property, for example. It covers legal fees, court costs, and any judgments made against the business. Another important option is Professional Liability coverage. This insurance protects clients in case employees make a mistake and the client sues for damages. One scenario would be if an employee burns a client with hot wax, or a treatment is left on too long. Lawsuits can incur even if worker negligence wasn’t involved. If a client simply has an allergic reaction to a product, the business owner can still be held liable, and General Liability may not cover a particular claim. Product Liability insurance should be considered if there will be products for sale in the salon. It offers protection against any negative claims made by clients.

Worker’s Compensation insurance is purchased separately, and the penalties for not providing it to employees is quite severe. Employees are the business’s most important assets, so they should be protected against injuries on the job. Worker’s Compensation pays for an injured employee’s medical expenses, disability, and a portion of their earnings until they are able to return to work. It also prohibits them from suing the business.

Locality Expands Nationally to Deliver Comprehensive Local Services Information to Millions of Consumers in 10,000+ Cities

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2013

Locality (formerly Centzy), provider of the most useful, comprehensive search experience for local services, today announced its expansion into more than 10,000 U.S. cities. The company connects millions of consumers with the right local merchants for their needs. Whether it’s finding a stylist who can give great highlights before a big date or identifying the best spa nearby within a consumer’s budget, over 1.5 million people use Locality one or more times each month. Unlike other local search services that provide basic business listings and user reviews, Locality specializes in data that comes directly from merchants, such as their menu of services, pricing, and business hours, generating the most complete results available online covering 60 services in 15 categories.

As Locality continues to aggressively broaden its reach, the company announced that it has raised $ 4.3 million in Series A funding. Matrix Partners led the round and general partner Jared Fliesler has joined the company’s board of directors. Locality will use the funds to build out its platform in an ambitious effort to cover every service at every local business nationwide and develop new ways for consumers to easily connect to local merchants.

Locality's vision is to build the most comprehensive marketplace for consumers to find, compare, and select local services. With Locality, local merchants are "always open" to answer the most commonly asked questions about their businesses. Locality aims to help merchants extend their reach and build a larger audience of high-intention consumers. Over time, Locality will make it even easier to search and discover new products and services, connecting potential customers with merchants and closing the loop on their purchases.

No One Covers Local Like Locality

Locality takes a radically different approach to local search. It is the only platform to provide a deep and normalized look at entire service categories within a searchable metro. 90% of Locality’s pricing, available services, and hours data is not available anywhere else online. For example, in a recent random sampling of 700 nail salons across the nation, Locality provided operating hours data for twice the number of nail salons as Google.

Locality’s proprietary data collection system ensures that all merchants within a defined area are included in searches and that all listings remain current. The company provides actionable information to millions of potential customers with strong purchase intent -- people searching for specific services as part of their daily lives. For example, it’s 7pm and Bob is just finishing his workday. His regular cleaners closed at 5pm, but he really needs to find a next-day wash and fold. Bob can easily search on Locality for a quality, affordable dry cleaner nearby that offers this specific service and is still open. Locality gives consumers the best insight into all of their options.

“Locality does for local services what Kayak does for air travel. We show consumers every service that's available around them in a way that makes it easy to find the right one for them,” said Jay Shek, co-founder and CEO of Locality. “Whether it’s finding the best yoga class in a new city or searching for a spontaneous mani-pedi near the office, Locality connects consumers to services for everyday life, giving them the power to find services wherever they are, whenever they need information.”

Act Locally, Grow Organically

Locality’s user base is growing rapidly and organically as consumers discover its value. Since its public launch last year, Locality traffic has grown over 10x as consumers use it in big cities and small towns all over the U.S. In fact, 75% of Locality’s traffic comes from outside the nation’s top 10 cities.

“Locality changes expectations of what local search can provide,” said Mr. Fliesler, Matrix general partner and former Square, Google and Slide executive. “Despite the number of companies competing in the local market, no one can do what Locality does and offer consumers this level of detail in local search. The unique and extensible data collection system that the team built allows Locality to scale and enter new markets at an unprecedented rate, and I can't wait to help Jay and his team design incredible product offerings on that platform."

“We are fortunate to receive such strong support from Matrix as a firm and from Jared in particular. Jared has great insight into how to build and market successful products in the local space from his time at Square,” added Mr. Shek. “His outstanding, relevant experience makes him the perfect fit to help us turn Locality into the ultimate local marketplace for consumers and merchants.”

To help accelerate growth, Locality is moving its headquarters to San Francisco. The company will maintain a satellite office in New York.
