  • Publication number: 20190251070
    Abstract: An analysis support system stores one or more templates each prepared according to an analysis purpose. Each of the one or more templates is correlated with: one or more data item names related to at least one of the one or more analysis target systems; and a log level that allows output of data of each of the one or more data item names. The analysis support system receives the selection of a template among one or more templates. The analysis support system uses data of a data item name as analysis data, the data being data of one or more data item names correlated with the selected template, the data item name corresponding to a log level equal to or lower than an allowable log level among pieces of data of the analysis target system correlated with the selected template.

  • Patent number: 9851867
    Abstract: A portable electronic device capable of more easily selecting a desired text input application, a method of controlling the same, and a program are provided. In a state in which characters or an image is displayed on a display of a portable telephone, an instruction is given such that either the image or at least one of the characters (for example, the characters “a”, “i”, “u”, and “e” on a region) is selected and then the character or the image is moved to an end region (for example, the right side of an end region). Consequently, the portable telephone starts a text input application storing the character associated with the end region (for example, a notepad application) and the selected character or image is input.

  • Patent number: 9024900
    Abstract: Provided are an electronic device wherein an application can be started up easily using text and so forth displayed in a display unit, and a method of controlling same. A start-up unit uses inputted text to start up an application which executes various functions. If text being displayed on the display unit has been selected as a result of a detection unit detecting that contact has been made to a region in which any of the text characters of the same text is displayed, an application control unit causes the display unit to display an application start-up display to which an application is associated.
