Microsoft's Commerce Server 2007 nears completion

Microsoft has released a near-final version of its software for building e-commerce sites and renamed the product Commerce Server 2007, from Commerce Server 2006.

In a blog posting on the Microsoft Developer Network recently, Microsoft developer Ryan Donovan emphasized that the name change does not mean the software will be late. A focus of the upgrade is making it easier for customers to link their e-commerce sites with back-end applications from SAP and Oracle. This is achieved using BizTalk Server and its various adapters for linking to third-party applications.

Another selling point is an out-of-the-box starter site, which will include catalog browsing, shopping cart, profile management and other predesigned capabilities for setting up an online store. It will be available as a Web download when Commerce Server 2007 is released to manufacturing, which is scheduled for June.

Other new features include support for the service-oriented architecture development model and integration with Microsoft's ASP.Net 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. The upgrade also will add better reporting capabilities and new tools for managing orders and customers and support server clustering.

Messaging security appliance maker IronPort (http://www.ironport.com/) earlier this month announced an upgrade to its outbound e-mail filters that help companies stay compliant with regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.

Available free to customers of the company's e-mail security appliances, the IronPort Compliance Filters include a preset collection of policies that can be deployed to help protect organizations from unauthorized dissemination of information over e-mail, officials say. The filters use a multicategory pattern-matching algorithm to find sensitive information in outbound e-mails and act on them accordingly.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
