Sony Pictures Entertainment cyberhack was the last 2014 addition to this list.

- Retiring Applications in the Factory of the Future
November 29, 2013
Application sprawl has become a common problem among businesses for a variety of reasons. The explosion of data, for example, has not only contributed to large volumes of stored information, but it has created increasingly data-intensive applications. In addition, there are a number of business reasons that make tracking how much software an organization has and how many resources it uses a challenging process. In the case of a merger, for example, one organization’s applications are often managed as the primary software while another organization’s programs are kept in a nonproduction environment for reporting purposes. While this kind of management addresses compliance concerns, it can also create inefficiencies in infrastructure management.

July 09, 2013
Developers have many factors to consider when building an application programming interface. Best practices usually dictate an emphasis on simplicity, but actually designing an API that is simple and still comprehensive enough to connect essential software components is a complex task. Another issue is that what would be accessible to one user might not be as simple to another. Zuora, an Estuate partner, recently addressed this issue with the release of a new set of REST APIs to supplement its existing SOAP APIs.

By Roger Nessier, VP, Client Management, Estuate, Inc. - January 14, 2013
