  • Patent number: 10650011
    Abstract: A method includes logically organizing, by an object hierarchy processor, data objects in a first hierarchy. A portion of the data objects in the first hierarchy logically includes groupings of other data objects. The object hierarchy processor physically organizes the data objects across two or more types of memory in a second hierarchy. Another portion of the data objects in the second hierarchy physically includes groupings of other data objects. Groupings of the data objects in the second hierarchy are dynamically moved across the two or more types of memory. Levels of access of the data objects are tracked using a data structure that maps groupings of the data objects in the first hierarchy onto metadata information including combined access frequencies of the data objects, and current number of accessors to the data objects, in each grouping of the data objects.

  • Patent number: 10623528
    Abstract: A method for increasing a speed of access to resources in an enterprise system. A gateway receives a request from the client to find a resource executed by a computer within the enterprise system. The gateway determines whether the client is authorized to find the resource. Responsive to authorization, the gateway instructs the proxy server to access an application programming interface (API) that controls communication between the resource and the proxy server, and instructs the API to query the resource to determine whether code used by the client to work with the resource should be transmitted to the client. The code is transmitted to the proxy server and from the proxy server to the gateway and from the gateway to the client via the network, wherein the speed of access to the resource is increased by avoiding communication with other resources in the enterprise system.

  • Patent number: 10514824
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein that are capable of providing a pivot-based tile gallery with an adapted tile (e.g., in an application, such as a web application in a browser). A pivot is code that enables selection of a subset of tiles from multiple subsets of tiles. A pivot element is an interface element that represents a pivot. For instance, selection of the subset of tiles via the pivot may cause a user interface (UI) representation of the tile gallery to include UI representations of the tiles in the selected subset (e.g., and not UI representations of the tiles that are not included in the selected subset). An adapted tile is a tile that includes a wrapper and a second tile. The wrapper wraps the second tile. For instance, the wrapper may enable the adapted tile to use the second tile to implement functionality of an aspect of a resource.

  • Patent number: 10496452
    Abstract: Subject matter involves using natural language to Web application program interfaces (API), which map natural language commands into API calls, or API commands. This mapping enables an average user with little or no programming expertise to access Web services that use API calls using natural language. An API schema is accessed and using a specialized grammar, with the help of application programmers, canonical commands associated with the API calls are generated. A hierarchical probabilistic distribution may be applied to a semantic mesh associated with the canonical commands to identify elements of the commands that require labeling. The identified elements may be sent to annotators, for labeling with NL phrases. Labeled elements may be applied to the semantic mesh and probabilities, or weights updated. Labeled elements may be mapped to the canonical commands with machine learning to generate a natural language to API interface. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10496434
    Abstract: Techniques for processing large data sets in parallel in a cloud-networked environment. The cloud-networked environment includes a plurality of remote systems and a cloud-based management system. The cloud-based management system can receive a large set of events from the respective remote systems, place the events, in the order they are received, in a task queue of an elastic scalable thread pool including a plurality of processing threads, process the respective events in the queue asynchronously and in parallel by the plurality of processing threads to produce a plurality of transaction outcomes, respectively, and generate a stream of the transaction outcomes in the same serial order as the events corresponding to the respective outcomes were received. By generating an ordered serial stream of transaction outcomes that corresponds to the respective events placed in the task queue, an analysis of conditions underlying the respective events can be performed more efficiently and accurately.

    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software disclosed herein relate to a common gateway platform system. In an implementation, program instructions direct a computing system to execute a common gateway platform environment comprising an adapter comprising an adapter name identification, a broker connected to the adapter, and an application connected to the adapter. The application also generates an action configured according to a common gateway platform protocol, transmit the action to the broker, and receive a reaction from the broker. The broker is configured to identify the adapter based on the adapter identifier and transmit the action to the adapter. The broker also receives the reaction from the adapter and transmit the reaction to the application. The adapter is configured to acquire the data from the industrial automation environment based on an adapter instruction in the action, generate the reaction comprising the acquired data, and transmit the reaction to the broker.

  • Patent number: 10455264
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to bulk data extraction systems. In some embodiments, a streaming server system may receive a first request, from a data storage system, that is sent prior to initiation of a bulk data extraction for a first group of users. In response to the first request, the streaming server system may receive, from the data storage system, a first notification message that includes a particular event identifier for a most recent data event generated at the data storage system. The streaming server system may receive, from the data storage system, those messages associated with the bulk data extraction for the first group. Subsequent to completion of the bulk data extraction, the streaming server system may send, to the data storage system, a request to subscribe to notification messages for data events associated with the first group.

  • Patent number: 10452409
    Abstract: In one approach, a native call is performed using an adapter generator to produce an adapter for converting memory structures between a first memory representation adhering to a first application binary interface (ABI) and a second memory representation adhering to a second memory representation adhering to a second ABI. In some cases, the adapter produced by the adapter generator is stored in an adapter cache and indexed by the shape of the call for later reuse should the same native call be made again in the future. The adapter produced by the adapter generator uses a set of intermediate instructions which can be either compiled by a Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler or interpreted by an interpreter to produce executable instructions for converting between the first ABI and the second ABI.
