In June 2013 SoftElegance attended Gartner IT Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit
Gartner.com: “Gartner IT Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit 2013 will help I&O leaders apply authoritative thinking, leading-edge strategies and tactical best practices to their enterprise I&O planning and initiatives.”
We’re really glad and satisfied attending Gartner’s event. We heard a lot, new and proven concepts, future and predictions. One of the first keynotes was about what does the future hold for Infrastructure and Operations?
The main ideas are that it will be required to care about BYOD and mobile apps, that I&O will loose control over the architecture because of SaaS applications, that business unit managers will spend more on IT, more and more critical business applications will be sources via the cloud.
Best Practices to the Standard Object Modeling Language
Today we had the next internal discussion “UML distilled and software for visual modelling“. It starts from the seminar and very brief discussion of the Unified Modeling Language. Then we discussed who and how used UML in real production projects, discussed the best practices, and which diagrams should be really helpful.
Starts from Visual Studio 2010 integrated tools for visual modelling looks rather helpful, it also can be mapped to the source code, and vice versa to visual diagrams.
Also we found UML Distilled: A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language rather good handbook for UML.

Inventory Logistic Management Using GPS/Wireless System at APICS Chapter
SoftElegance has submitted the presentation “Inventory Logistic Management Using GPS/Wireless System” at Houston Chapter of Association for Operations Management. The October’s session of APICS started with SoftElegance’s USA presentation.
“Many companies use traditional process to track inventory and provide project status updates. Over the years those traditional methods have proven to be inefficient, costly, and time consuming for yard and shop employees. Without a reliable way to track how many moves are made around the yard in a given day, many organizations lose money because they cannot determinate the optimal number of employees and forklifts required for route optimization”, says official APICS Pressrelease.
Yesterday at SoftElegance we had internal discussion about upcoming Windows 8.
The first we’ve discussed in Metro style apps, what does it mean for developers. Than little bit about desktop, it’s UI and all legacy applications. Also it was discussed some new features like Hyper-V virtualization on ‘client’ version, support or ARM architecture. And for the end some feedbacks about BUILD conference.
Our main focus was on development part of Windows 8, or what Windows 8 will mean for developers.
Please find our SlideShare presentation about the keynote topics we’ve discussed. This is not full of information presentation, it’s just the main topics to discuss.
RussianNY is the leading Russian-American web-portal in New-York. It’s a hybrid of social and business network since 1998 with up to 90 000 registered users. The new testimonial has came to SoftElegance website from Mikhail Dudalenko, V.P., RussianNY.com:
“SoftElegance was brought to the project when it was about to fail. The team of talented developers made a quick turnaround. We were inspired by their efficient, professional manner. In six month we had stable version and six month later the system went live. By partnering with SoftElegance we were able to be on time and on budget.”
We are really proud to collaborate with the RussianNY.com project, to use the latest technologies such as .NET Framework 4.0, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Windows Server 2008, and some additional frameworks and technologies. We are looking forward to keep long-term partnership and to help RussianNY to be the leading ethnic web-portal in the U.S.
