  • Patent number: 10713664
    Abstract: Automated evaluation and reporting of microservice regulatory compliance during development and operation are provided. The method includes parsing, by a natural language parser, the set of regulations for which microservice compliance is to be evaluated, and generating an ontology including attributes, rules and policies obtained from parsing the set of regulations. A rules engine is created according to the ontology. The rules engine includes compliance rules, and an application program interface (API) that allows responses to compliance queries derived from one or more of the compliance rules. The rules engine receives responses to the compliance queries, with the microservice being instrumented with a message queue invocation as one or more annotations to facilitate processing the compliance queries. The rules engine generates a regulation-compliance report for the microservice based on the received responses to the compliance queries.

  • Patent number: 10560743
    Abstract: In order to maximize the availability of a television receiver/decoder housing, the invention enables the download of updates while said housing is being used. In order to do so, when the housing detects that an update is available, the housing allocates itself a portion of the acquisition resources of the update in order to store this update in a housing storage memory. Once the download is complete, the user can either activate the update or carry on using a former version of the housing application, the user thus being able to select a microcode version which is activated by default on switching on the receiver/decoder housing.

  • Patent number: 9733921
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for managing the deployment of extensions to the functionality of a multi-tenant data processing platform. A computing system, such as a multi-tenant distributed computing platform, may have multiple business related applications installed on the platform that are used by one or more users/tenants to perform business related functions. Developers may create and implement “extensions” to such applications, and make those extensions available to tenants/users of the platform. Such extensions may provide an enhancement to the underlying application, such as by introducing new or improved functionality, a new or improved user interface, new or improved reporting capabilities, etc.

  • Patent number: 9706035
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are provided that facilitate providing one or more profiles to an application executing on a device. The application can request one or more profiles, which can relate to an application type. The application type can be specified in the profile request, determined based on a profile indicated in the profile request, etc. Where the application type corresponds to an operator-specific application type, one or more operator identifiers in the profile request can be verified with one or more other operator identifiers in an identity module of the device. Where the operator identifiers match, the requested profile can be provided to the application. Where the operator identifiers do not match, an invalid profile, error code, etc. can be provided to the application. In this regard, operators can control utilization of specific profiles that can be defined by the operator.
