  • Publication number: 20170364573
    Abstract: An intelligent conflict detection system. The system provides semantic expression of edits and history-aware conflict detection in a large-scale service allowing multiple users to simultaneously work with the same document, which may result in conflicting edits. When submitted, changes to a version of a document are compared to all versions of the document created since the document was sourced. Edits to documents are expressed as intents describing the changes in terms of an action and object of that action based on a characteristic of the data being edited. Comparing the intent of current edits against the historical intent of the edits made in prior versions originating from the same source document allows the system to intelligently assess whether the edits are in conflict. History-aware semantic analysis results in users being prompted less frequently to resolve conflicts, which improves the user experience.

  • Publication number: 20170247213
    Abstract: Provided is a container for transporting a consumable such as a medium on which an image is to be printed. The container includes a support surface and a reading component coupled to the support surface to read a computer-readable code accompanying the consumable. A relay interface is operatively connected to the reading component to receive a signal indicative of the computer-readable code read by the reading component, and communicate with a compatible reader provided to the receiving apparatus to convey information about the computer-readable code read by the reading component to the receiving apparatus. The relay interface can be coupled to the tray at a location remotely located from the reading component and having an orientation that is different from an orientation of the reading component.

  • Publication number: 20170142094
    Abstract: Single sign-on identity management between local and cloud-based systems is provided. A remote or cloud-based authentication endpoint is registered as a local device, service or resource in a user's local directory services system. A local device and associated user requesting access to cloud-based resources will then see the authentication endpoint as an internal (inside the enterprise) server and may supply an authentication ticket which includes on-premises log-in or sign-on identity for the user. The remote or cloud-based authentication endpoint may then validate the authentication ticket, and the user may then access devices, applications and services operated in association with the remote or cloud-based authentication endpoint without a second or separate log-in or sign-on and without use of additional authentication equipment at the user's enterprise network.

  • Patent number: 9542115
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing resources in a storage system are provided. The methods include tracking performance of a plurality of resources used for reading and writing information at storage devices in a networked storage system, each resource represented by a logical object in a hierarchical structure and performance data associated with each logical object is maintained by a processor executing a management application out of a memory device; identifying a root object associated with a resource having a performance issue as indicated by a threshold violation for the resource; selecting a related object associated with a resource similar to the resource of the root object by the management application for comparing performance data of the root object with the related object; and using the comparison to verify that the root object is a root cause of the performance issue.

  • Patent number: 9513763
    Abstract: User interfaces associated with software applications or computer devices may be automatically laid out or configured based on attributes of a user, or operational characteristics or environmental conditions of the software applications or the computer devices. Where information or data regarding a user, a software application or a computer device is determined from any source (e.g., a sensor), such information or data may be compared to information or data associated with other users, software applications or computer devices, and a user interface may be presented on a computer display in a layout or configuration preferred by the other users. The layout or configuration may be identified by determining any number of covariances or correlations between such information and data and any layouts or configurations, or actions taken to establish such layouts or configurations by the other users.
