New AJAX-Based Showcase Website of Maporama Launched

Geocentric Services Company Launches Web 2.0 Version of its Cartographic Services Website

Maporama International has announced the release of its new maps and itineraries website www.maporama.com and its entrance in the Web 2.0 era. The website has been totally redesigned, on the ergonomic level as well as on the technical side. The new interface, based on AJAX technology, brings to the web users new enriched functionalities, dynamic contents and a more rapid information display.

The new website interface presents an optimized ergonomics and a lot of new innovative services, relying on AJAX technology. In opposition to traditional web applications, often slow in terms of loading time, the new www.maporama.com applications manage data and requests in asynchronous mode, in background, to accelerate the display of the web pages and information.

The homepage is customizable thanks to a system of modules and options that allow to define a personal interface (choice of the map styles within 31 styles, of the display size of the map, itineraries parameters, functional modules display).

The map module offers a new user-experience, richer and more interactive: zoom-in and zoom-out function by selecting a rectangle with the mouse, drag &drop function to navigate on the map.

The itineraries module has been enriched with an interactive roadbook (choice of the displayed information like step-by-step maneuver instructions, intersections maps) and additional contents such as speed cameras. Users customize also the print layout of their itinerary depending on their final need (pedestrian itinerary, by car or motorcycle).

The website offers very innovative functionalities in BETA version. It is the first website to provide an itinerary calculation under the real-time traffic information constraint and real-time driving indications. Moreover www.maporama.com includes a cartographic view service to display in one click the road traffic situation on street level maps. These services are currently available for the Paris, France region.

A world premiere service: directions.mp3 (itinerary exports on MP3 players) Directions.mp3 transforms any MP3 player, MP3 mobile phone or iPod in a real road companion: in one single click on www.maporama.com, the user exports from his PC

The website offers also the possibility to create maps and itineraries collections in the area "My Maporama", to enrich the users' online social network. The web users create and store their maps in their personal "My Maporama", and share them with their community by email, in a simple click.

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.
Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.
Data center, on-premise, public-cloud, private-cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud, IoT, AI, edge, SaaS, PaaS... it's an availability, security, performance and integration nightmare even for the best of the best IT experts. Organizations realize the tremendous benefits of everything the digital transformation has to offer. Cloud adoption rates are increasing significantly, and IT budgets are morphing to follow suit. But distributing applications and infrastructure around increases risk, introduces complexity and challenges availability at every turn. To embrace DX and to come out on top, there are four underlying principles that should guide you. Understanding these four essentials along with their relevance and impact will elevate you to DX Hero status now. Jonathan will provide a high-level overview of these principles and how some of his organization's clients have embraced them w...
The level of trust we have with individuals, businesses, and technology affects our lives daily. This is important to remember when discussing new technologies. For example, our level of trust is a critical factor when evaluating a new technology as a potential solution for providing business value. Given the importance of trust, imagine one's reaction upon hearing that blockchain is a "trustless trust" system. On the surface, that does sound like an oxymoron. This paper discusses how "trustless trust" applies to blockchain. It will discuss the various consensus algorithms used to provide that trust, including the benefits and challenges of each. Key use case patterns will be provided as examples and what the impact of the tradeoffs between consensus algorithms.
Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. PJ Hough, Citrix Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, discusses improving personal productivity with an evolved approach supporting modern workstyles and simplifying IT complexities to deliver the right experience to the right user at the right time, on any device.
