BreakAway, Ltd. and OSS.Net, Inc. Agree to Explore Real-World Decision Support Fed by Multi-Lingual Open Sources of Information

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert David Steele Vivas, CEO of OSS.Net, Inc., a Virginia C Corporation, announced today that he has invited BreakAway CEO Doug Whatley to speak and exhibit at IOP '06, the new conference focused on Information Operations (IO), Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), and Peacekeeping Intelligence (PKI), to take place 17-19 January 2006 in Tysons Corner, Virginia. CEO Whatley has accepted.

"A new marketplace is emerging," Steele suggests, "one that combines the old business intelligence marketplace that is at $25 billion a year, with the new IO and OSINT marketplace that is no less than $5 billion a year in the coming year just in the United States, and with the emerging 'reality games' marketplace that is not yet capitalized, but could easily double the value of open source information harvested in all languages all the time.

"We applaud the integration of IBM's DB2 OmniFind with Google Enterprise, and we look forward to the further integration of CISCO's Application Oriented Network, which will provide these globally-scalable systems with 'by name' security options as well as real-time content-based routing and instantly updatable global rule-making.

"It is on that industrial basis that we believe BreakAway, and its new game to teach non-violent resistance, 'A Force More Powerful,' represent the new craft of intelligence and decision-support. Fed by real-world information, often in real time, which has been harvested from all sources in all languages, it will be possible for citizens, organizations, agencies, and governments to 'game' alternative scenarios and returns on investment in both the near and long terms. This has implications for Strategic Communication & Public Diplomacy; Peacekeeping Intelligence & Information Peacekeeping; Early Warning & Stabilization-Reconstruction Operations; Homeland Defense & Emergency Responder Civil Support; and National Education & National Research.

"IOP '06 will bring together Congressman Rob Simmons (R-CT-02), Alvin & Heidi Toffler, and eighteen other international speakers, with 400-600 global military, law enforcement, business, and non-governmental specialists. Sixty exhibits are planned in all related information technology areas.

"Information Operations helps avoid conflict and create wealth that is stabilizing. It may well be the most important investment any Nation can make."

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers.

A service mesh like Istio addr...
