  • Patent number: 10503821
    Abstract: A workflow assistant can provide for improved memory aids and workflow management. The workflow assistant can retrieve context information from a base application to facilitate the creation of memory aids and workflow management items. Textual analysis can be applied to user input to determine data elements, data objects, assistant items, and collections that may be relevant to a memory or workflow aid. The workflow assistant can suggest actions for a user to take, such as based on text analysis of user input or the contents of a collection. Technical features such as a context analyzer that retrieves information from the base application for access by the workflow assistant can make the workflow assistant more dynamic and reduce the user interaction needed to create or modify a memory or workflow aid.

  • Patent number: 10157068
    Abstract: A system for development, deliver, deployment and operation of an application includes at least one memory including instructions on a computing device and at least one processor on the computing device. The processor is operably coupled to the at least one memory and is arranged and configured to execute the instructions that, when executed, cause the processor to implement an application within a platform associated with a namespace for the platform, where the platform is one platform of a plurality of platforms. The processor implements a descriptor having an identifier that uniquely associates the descriptor with the application, where the descriptor comprises a single file that is platform independent and that includes a plurality of namespaces and application-specific attributes for each of the namespaces to enable the application to operate on multiple different platforms using the same descriptor.

  • Patent number: 10095733
    Abstract: A database processing system can support applications of an online transaction processing (OLTP) archetype and of an online analytical processing (OLAP) archetype. Hybrid archetypes can also be supported to implement hybrid scenarios. Requests for services are routed to an appropriate engine for fulfillment. User interface assets can be served by a shared infrastructure. Seamless navigation from one archetype to another can be supported in an insight-to-action scenario.

  • Patent number: 10091282
    Abstract: The disclosure generally describes computer-implemented methods, computer program products, and systems for providing metadata-driven dynamic load balancing in multi-tenant systems. A computer-implemented method includes: identifying a request related to a model-based application executing in a multi-tenant system associated with a plurality of application servers and identifying at least one object in the model-based application associated with the request. At least one application server is identified as associated with a locally-cached version of a runtime version of the identified object, and a determination of a particular one of the identified application servers to send the identified request for processing is based on a combination of the availability of a locally-cached version of the runtime version at the particular application server and the server's processing load. The request is then sent to the determined application server for processing.

  • Patent number: 10055113
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems, products, and methods for modifying elements within a user interface (UI). One method includes operations for identifying an instance of a UI text element for modification within a UI associated with a software application, wherein the UI is displayed to at least one user; retrieving a set of metadata associated with the identified instance of the UI text element, where each instance of the UI text element is associated with the retrieved set of metadata; receiving at least one modification to the retrieved set of metadata associated with the identified instance of the UI text element; and persisting the modified set of metadata associated with the UI text element.

  • Patent number: 10055269
    Abstract: Various embodiments of systems and methods to display an additional message information relevant to a product are described herein. Initially a determination is made whether error message, corresponding to a data processing error related to a product, has a corresponding additional message information related to the product. Next, based on the determined additional message information, an additional message information property of the error message is updated to indicate that the error message has the corresponding additional information. Next, based on the updated additional message information property, the additional message information is converted to obtain a converted additional message information in a markup language. Finally the converted additional message information is forwarded to a user interface, where it is displayed.

  • Patent number: 9749453
    Abstract: Relaxation of mobile device features restrictions leveraging embedded auditing systems is presented. One or more managed applications are designated on the mobile device via a software plug-in to an application management adapter running on the mobile device, each of the one or more managed applications being associated with at least one mobile device feature that generates data related to a local environment of the mobile device. A front-end auditing component captures the data generated by the at least one mobile device feature, which transmits the data to a backend auditing component. The backend auditing component logs the data, and a notification of an event associated with the data is generated for one or more designated recipients.

  • Patent number: 9697104
    Abstract: A unique identifier is provided for a transaction. The unique identifier provided by a passport library. Corresponding trace and log data is assigned to the unique identifier of the transaction. A UI trace file is generated, the UI trace file comprising the unique identifier and UI trace and log data comprised in the assigned trace and log data. The UI trace file is replicated in a centralized system database and the UI trace file is parsed to extract the unique identifier and the UI trace and log data. Detailed trace and log data is dynamically collected from systems connected to the centralized system based on the unique identifier of the transaction. Detailed trace and log data and the UI trace and log data is aggregated in an end-to-end analysis tool.
