I often receive questions that start with “I’ve got a great mobile application and I am going to add the ability to make payments. But I am a bit worried because of the PCI PA-DSS standard.”
The situation is so typical that I’ve finally decided to write an article dedicated to PCI PA-DSS and what to do about it.
To start with, let`s refresh our knowledge about the PCI PA-DSS standard and maybe even learn something new.
As you remember, the PCI PA-DSS standard is mostly known for enhancing the security of payment applications. Overall, every application that works within the PCI DSS-compliance infrastructure should be PCI PA-DSS compliant.
Let`s drill down into the requirements.
We are glad to announce that wot.io & DataArt will be showcasing IoT wireless sensor integration and real-time event processing during NYC IoT Fair @ Google HQ, December 8 from 6pm to 8pm. We’ll be happy to show how wireless Sensor Tags can be easily integrated with wot.io data services using the DeviceHive platform. Play with TI SensorTag, send some tweets, and see some graphs! Come visit us at our demo display!
See you at the IoT Fair!
The DataArt IoT / M2M practice is happy to finally present the new release version of the open source IoT / M2M communication platform DeviceHive 1.3.0. The framework was developed to allow users to concentrate more power in innovation & focus on how the machines & gadgets will communicate, instead of the type of data they transmit and what the overall end-user experience could be. This fall the new big things with extended security support and scalability are coming.
DataArt’s Healthcare Practice invites you to meet with us at mHealth Summit in Washington, DC December 8-10 – the perfect place to explore the limits of mobile and non-mobile health innovations.
At our exhibition booth #819, DataArt will showcase its mobile expertise and ability to connect smart devices, provide food for thought and share industry insights.
Join us at mHealth Summit and check out what new is coming in mobile healthcare.
Where does software go?
While fixing bugs and adding new features to get a program ready for release, we don’t usually think about where it all goes. For us, software is just a patient on the desktop who needs to be dissected, completed, changed, cured and got working.
At the moment everyone is discussing the Apple Watch and new iPhones. But I would like to talk about the new Google design guidelines for Android – Google Material Design. I must admit that I’m a big fan of Apple even though I have only been using their devices since 2008. In comparison I started using Gmail in 2005! So I try to follow the news from Google and their innovations in UI and design. But they weren’t so exciting up until the most recent Google I/O.
Insurance claims processing is an essential component of revenue cycle management that has the power to improve practice’s collections. In reality, however, healthcare providers and insurance companies keep running into a wall of miscommunication. Why does it happen? The answer is in the article “Pitfalls for Insurance Claims Processing” by Egor Kobelev.
Responding to a request from a potential customer, DataArt’s R&D department created a prototype application for object recognition and tracking within a video.
The customer’s idea for the product was that an object, selected manually in a video for the first time, is then tracked automatically throughout the footage, with the object coordinates retrieved and stored as the video progresses.
Getting an invitation from AT&T to join the Hackathon as API sponsor was both luck and a good chance to present DeviceHive an IoT community. We spent several days polishing up our Github docs and shipping our educational platforms to Vegas, and these exciting 24 hours of the hackathon were absolutely worth it! Recently hackathons started to change from pure software/API to Hardware and IoT, and AT&T’s is not an exception. Our team decided to show our newly made hardware educational platforms with Arduino YUN we’d wrote about this summer, and to provide DeviceHive tools to Hackathon participants so they stay productive, and shift their focus to innovative solutions rather than spending time on plumbing.
With a start of 48 teams, 16 were admitted to the Final, and two finalists were using DeviceHive for their projects:
- Home security: suspicious activity monitoring around the house based on MAC addresses of un-assiciated wifi devices. If the pattern sets of an alert, it will be dispatched to the cloud using DeviceHive.
- Connected car: connected child safety solution.
It was an unforgettable experience! Amazing opportunity to stand behind the developers’ back and watch them use DeviceHive code and hardware platform. Some pictures from the Hackathon (of tonnes we’d made)
