View CAD Drawings on iPhone Through Microsoft Seadragon Deep Zoom Technology From Informative Graphics

Technology Enables Viewing of Large CAD Files as Deep Zoom Images Via Customized Microsoft Silverlight, Seadragon AJAX and the Seadragon iPhone App

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/17/10 -- Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in viewing, collaboration and redaction technology, announced today that its Net-It Enterprise 7.0 automated document publishing platform will convert oversized CAD drawings -- including AutoCAD®, MicroStation, and SolidWorks formats -- images and office documents to Microsoft Deep Zoom images. Created by Microsoft Labs, Deep Zoom is revolutionary technology that enables high resolution viewing of images as a collection. The images can be accessed through Silverlight, Seadragon AJAX and the Seadragon iPhone App.

Architects, contractors, facilities management professionals and attorneys specializing in these practice areas will benefit from the new portability and instant accessibility of drawings and project files afforded by this technology. With Net-It Enterprise, new drawings or documents are automatically detected, processed and added to RSS-ready Deep Zoom collections, ensuring project collections are always current. Contractors, sub-contractors, inspectors and other authorized personnel can call up the latest drawings on their desktops, iPhones or other mobile devices from online project RSS feeds, right from the job site, while at a meeting or anywhere else.

Net-It Enterprise and Deep Zoom is the first technology combination that truly makes even the largest CAD drawings from a variety of CAD systems electronically accessible in the field without carrying rolls of blueprints everywhere. Because Net-It delivers such high resolution, users can zoom in to the smallest detail with excellent fidelity.

"Net-It's ability to publish CAD drawings, images and documents to Microsoft Deep Zoom offers professionals in construction-related firms immediate access to the drawings and documents they need with great resolution, even on an iPhone," said Gary Heath, President and CEO of IGC. "In fact, with the great interaction that smartphone touch screens offer, it is remarkably easy to navigate huge drawings quickly."

The Microsoft Seadragon iPhone App is free and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store. Net-It Enterprise is scalable server software that can process many different types of file formats and create PDF, secure CSF, TIFF, DWF, JPG/PNG thumbnails and now Deep Zoom output. In addition, Net-It Enterprise can burn-in annotations, stamps and watermarks and it can be integrated to any collaboration portal or data management solution.

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it’s essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs.
To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that: Supports self-service, "public cloud" experience for your developers that's consistent across any infrastructure. Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.
