  • Patent number: 10621842
    Abstract: Approaches for generating an alert in an absence of a radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag in proximity to a mobile device are provided herein. RFID tags are detected in proximity to the first mobile device, which has a RFID receiver. The alert is generated in response to alert conditions, including a determination that a RFID tag identifier stored in a first profile list is not among detected RFID tags and that an RFID tag stored in the first profile list is not in proximity to a second device. The alert is transmitted to the second mobile device, wherein the alert adds, responsive to the stored RFID tag not being among the detected RFID tags at the first device, the stored RFID tag to a second profile list associated with the second mobile device for storing RFID tag identifiers, wherein the second profile list is separate from the first profile list.

  • Patent number: 10580274
    Abstract: A method for generating an alert on a mobile device in an absence of a radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag in proximity to the mobile device is provided herein. The method comprises defining an event. A profile list for storing RFID tag identifiers is related to the event. The method also comprises sharing the event data together with the profile list using a social media network, storing all received RFID tag identifiers at a time within the duration of the event after an event start time in the profile list if the profile list was empty before the event start time, and generating the alert under alert conditions. The alert conditions comprise a determination that the profile list was not empty before the event start time, and that one RFID tag identifier stored in the profile list is not among the received RFID tag identifiers during the event duration after the event time.

  • Publication number: 20200057670
    Abstract: Embodiments include systems, methods, and computer program products to perform an operation for managing different virtual machine images as a single virtual machine image. The operation generally includes generating a representation of a virtual machine (VM) image, and generating a first VM instance from the VM image. The representation of the VM image includes a set of artifacts associated with the VM image. The operation also includes receiving an indication of an available software update. Upon determining that the software update is applicable to the representation of the VM image, the operation further includes applying the software update to the first VM instance image.

  • Publication number: 20200057621
    Abstract: A method for creating a software image of a software application. During an installation of the software application on a computing machine, one or more changes of the computing machine occurring during the installation of the software application are detected. The one or more changes include one or more artifacts being added to the computing machine and one or more updates being applied to the computing machine. The software image is created by copying the one or more artifacts from the computing machine to a virtual disk and by adding activation procedures and activation information obtained from the activation procedures to the virtual disk. The activation procedures and activation information were determined according to the updates. The activation procedures are configured to apply the updates when running the activation procedures according to the activation information.

  • Publication number: 20190294448
    Abstract: A technique for generating a customized program logic for booting a target system includes determining the hardware devices operatively connected with the target system. A list of identifiers of the determined hardware devices is sent to a server system. The server system selects from a set of drivers for each of the device identifiers in the list at least one driver operable to control the identified device to generate a sub-set of said set of drivers. The server system retrieves a core program logic being free of any drivers of the target system and sends the core program logic and the driver sub-set to the target system. The target system creates the customized program logic using the combination of the core program logic and the driver sub-set.
