  • Patent number: 9507642
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments relate to systems and methods for method and systems for sub-allocating computational resources. A first computing device receives information associated with a first set of computational resources from a cloud infrastructure. The first set of computational resources has been allocated to the first computing device by the cloud infrastructure. A first set of parameters associated with a workflow received by the first computing device is determined. The first set of parameters is indicative of a need of the first set of computational resources by the first computing device. One or more computational resources from the first set of computational resources are sub-allocated based on the determined first set of parameters.

  • Patent number: 8427680
    Abstract: A user of a computerized device creates an item capable of being printed and stores the item within storage of the computerized device. An instruction to perform delayed printing of the item is received from a user of a computerized device when the user is outside a predetermined physical range of at least one printing device. The computerized device detects when the computerized device is within the predetermined physical range of the printing device and, when this occurs, the computerized device provides the user a printing option to print the item on the printing device. If the user selects the printing option, the methods herein forward the item to a conversion device. The conversion device makes the item print ready so that the item can be printed using the printing device. The methods herein then cause the item to be forwarded from the conversion device to the printing device and printed on the printing device.

  • Patent number: 8411304
    Abstract: A method and system for enabling automatic service sharing and custom user interface features in a fleet of multi-function devices. EIP (Extensible Interface Platform) services can be registered via a peer-to-peer discovery subsystem associated with a multi-function device grid infrastructure. EIP service registration information can be submitted and stored in the grid infrastructure. The multi-function devices can be equipped with an enterprise EIP client, which can query the discovery subsystem and apply a corporate policy. The discovery subsystem detects the optimal instance of the service based on loading and availability factors and then returns a reference with respect to the services that allows access to enhanced services. Such an approach enables a fleet of multi-function devices to dynamically discover EIP services and auto populate service options to provide increased capability, reduced complexity, and improved speed.

  • Patent number: 8344892
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein are directed to personalizing event participation of a visitor at an event. Embodiments include communication nodes that form defined wireless areas. A first one of the communication nodes determines when the visitor enters a first defined wireless area in response to detecting an identifier associated with the personal portable wireless device associated with the visitor, records user activities of the visitor within the first one of defined wireless areas, and determines an interest of the visitor in response to the user activities in the first defined wireless area, where the interest is used to customize the event for the visitor.

  • Patent number: 8194275
    Abstract: A class of add-on system components providing functionality of devices, management of self-help, customization and enhancement of services for devices, and remote monitoring at significantly reduced cost. It reduces the cost of UI and greatly enhances ease-of-use by realizing that the networked system can be headless and use a browser-based UI for its platform. It embeds a Device Model Agent (DMA) and connects to the Device-Centric Services platform to offer services. Additionally, it offers customized diagnostic access for customer representatives to enable self-help service actions to be performed, unifies and manages multiple access needs to several disparate data access mechanisms, and uses largely COTS PC hardware rather than customized PWBs.

  • Patent number: 7734749
    Abstract: The Device Model Agent (DMA), the device side technology module in Device Centric Services (DCS) system, is the main focus of this invention. DMA is a thin, efficient applications/services execution environment. DMA provides an embedded services platform for enabling system management applications and services. This allows a flexible, extensible, dynamic services management module allowing networked services to be designed, added, and managed within the system without modifications to devices, DCS system, or DMA itself. While this invention specifically describes the integration of benefits from DMA into document system devices, the concepts are equally applicable in other domains. The DMA runtime environment is a thin software interface layer that resides on a document system device between the Java runtime environment and embedded web server.

  • Publication number: 20040125403
    Abstract: A distributed system allows marking devices and the like to subscribe to and run device-centric services. A device model agent allows the devices to interact with service hosts of service providers to automate supplies maintenance, user help, and services subscription and deployment. The device model agent can be embedded in the devices, can be deployed in an add-on component connected to the device, or can be run by a separate machine as a proxy. The device model agent provides a run time environment for services available to the device, but with a common interface and a common structure so that services can be written once and run in the device model agent in virtually any deployment.

  • Patent number: 6665085
    Abstract: A system for conveying diagnostic data from a machine, such as a digital copier or printer, to a remote specialist allows simultaneous transfer of diagnostic data and live voice data through the same communication channel. A distinct sequence of steps between the computer in the machine and the specialist's computer minimizes the chance of time-wasting errors in establishing communication.
