  • Publication number: 20190075140
    Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating shared access-right evaluation using linked communication channels are provided. A first communication can be received over a first communication link from a first user device, and a second communication can be received over a second communication link from a second user device. The first and second communications can include requests for the assignment of access rights. Map data can be generated and transmitted to each of the first and second user devices. Each user device can display a visual representation of access-right data. Further, a communication session can be facilitated between the first user device and the second user device. The communication session can be presented on the visual representation for each user device so that the first user and the second user can collaboratively evaluate access rights.

  • Publication number: 20190073458
    Abstract: A system and method for scheduling tasks associated with controlling access to databases. The system and method relate to scheduling tasks for data requesting systems that satisfy particular conditions. For example, data requesting systems that satisfy the conditions may have associated tasks stored in a queue during a first processing phase. Data requesting systems that do not satisfy the conditions may have associated tasks inhibited from being stored in the queue during the first processing phase, but these tasks may be stored in the queue during a later second processing phase. Tasks stored in the queue during the first processing phase may be processed before tasks stored in the queue during the second processing phase. For example, the tasks may correspond to accessing a database for querying data representing access rights to a resource.
