  • Patent number: 10289387
    Abstract: A method and system defines a mechanism to architect and define extensible methods and processes to build hybrid solutions. Solution templates provide a mechanism to architect and define the software development method in an extensible way and it enables the method architecture to be flexible to assemble method content and process elements only for those solution types that are necessary for a given solution. Solution templates keep the common base method lightweight and reusable and control the proliferation of software development processes necessary to build hybrid solutions by defining the solution templates for each of the solution types as pluggable extensions or add-ons to the base method that can be assembled on demand based on project needs.

  • Patent number: 10152692
    Abstract: Methods and systems for governing service identification in an SOA governance model according to embodiments of the present invention are provided. Embodiments include receiving a set of input parameters for identifying candidate services for the SOA; determining whether the set of input parameters comply with a predetermined input parameter validation policy. If the set of input parameters comply with a predetermined input parameter validation policy, governing service identification includes identifying in dependence upon the set of input parameters one or more candidate services available for the SOA in existing SOA business applications and determining whether each candidate services available in existing SOA business applications comply with a predetermined service selection policy.

  • Patent number: 10108333
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for inferring insights from enhanced user input. A computerized messaging system identifies a user operating a mobile, location-enabled, “scribble” device and associates the user or the device with a domain of interest or with other metadata that characterizes the user. When the user enters an ad hoc “scribble” input via the device, the system automatically tags the input with the user's location, with sensory data received from one or more sensor devices, and with ancillary data received from extrinsic data repositories. The system may then consider this ancillary and sensory data in order to identify or infer rules or insights associated with the user and the scribble. These rules may then be used to identify targeted, user-specific steps to perform in response to receiving the scribble, where these user-specific steps accommodate a user preference without exposing confidential user information to a public data repository.

  • Publication number: 20180268014
    Abstract: A method for capturing evolving data, comprising observing a data graph, identifying a first entity within the graph, defining a first property of the first entity, and identifying a first data value corresponding to the property and the entity. The method further comprises associating a second entity with the first entity at first data value, and forming a dimension of the first entity with associations to other entities within the graph for different data values of the first property. Identifying the first entity comprises identifying a property of the first entity representing a dimension but the property does not relate to other entities through the dimension. Defining the first property comprises identifying an attribute of the first entity that will not change; establishing the attribute as the first property.
