In one of my previous blog articles I promised to give you a closer look at the Dispatcher Discovery process. It took me a while but now I will fulfill that promise. Together with my colleague Bas van Goor I created an overview of the discovery process and in this article I will walk you through it.

Why do we actually need a discovery process? The RES Automation Manager Agent doesn’t communicate directly with the database. It does so by means of one or more Dispatchers and for an uninterrupted communication process it needs to have a list of functional and reachable Dispatchers in its memory.

I am frequently asked to demonstrate a variety of different scenarios when I am out talking to customers. There is a limit to what I can do with one laptop, so I created a way to toggle between different environments quickly and easily. This means I can demonstrate Workspace Manager to its full potential without ... READ MORE>>

In our second IT Insight of the year, we focus on how to introduce context-aware computing into your IT environment. Today, it’s fairly common for people to work from different locations, as well as multiple platforms, all in the same work day. This is why context-aware computing is increasingly important. Wherever they are, users need access to their settings, applications and data, but IT still needs to control how and in what situations they should be able to access it. Creating a context-aware environment allows IT to control what content their users have access to, and when and where they have access to it. Essentially, it allows IT to set the parameters that dynamically create a workspace that is unique ... READ MORE>>
