  • Patent number: 10649766
    Abstract: A non-stop multi-host transaction processing environment may be created by receiving incoming user calls to components through a vestibule bank, and by utilizing an installation manager during the replacement of software. The installation manager may be used in connection with a vestibule bank to handle user calls during the installation of a replacement software component such that user calls for a component can be processed while that component is being replaced, without an error being passed back to the end user. During the replacement of a software component, user calls from the old component may be drained and diverted to a replacement component. User calls received during the installation may be queued and then routed to the replacement component once the component has been replaced.

  • Patent number: 10638298
    Abstract: Methods and systems for determining public events are described. Data is received from a plurality of heterogeneous data feeds each having a native format. Event data objects are generated based on the received data, the event data objects each including at least a human readable message, an event time, and an event location. The human readable message of each of the event data objects is parsed into keywords, and the event data objects are grouped into one or more public events based on the keywords, time, location, and a sentiment based on the keywords.

  • Patent number: 10510081
    Abstract: The present invention provides apparatuses and methods for analyzing patterns and generating rules related to actions taken in auditing cargo air waybills. Various embodiments of the invention may receive one or more user actions applied to an air waybill and analyze the user's actions to determine if a pattern of behavior is consistent in the user's actions. When one or more patterns are determined, one or more rules may be generated based on the patterns and the actions. If a generated rule is approved by a user, the generated rule may be applied to any future air waybill sent to an accounting system for auditing. The integration of pattern analysis and rule generation may ease some or all of the burden of manually auditing thousands of air waybills daily and reduce the temporal costs of internal audit staff and the financial costs of employing an outside company to audit cargo air waybills.
