ood summary article here on credentials configuration for Windows PowerShell’s Azure environment. (Azure Dev newbies should be acquainted with this stuff.)
You can use Windows PowerShell to perform a variety of tasks in Azure, either interactively at a command prompt or automatically through scripts. Azure PowerShell is a module that provides cmdlets …
roperty Management Application(currently code-named Project “ARTeRMis”) moved a step closer to delivery of a much larger property management tool based on Microsoft SharePoint today with publication of one of the trial components: “Edgewater“. This component is simply an amalgamation of a number of different elements native to SharePoint, but hosted in the Office 365 environment and is setup to product test the suitability of them for inclusion in the TRM (Tenant Relationship Manager) application delivery going forward.
Artermis will ultimately be heavily dependent on Office 365, SharePoint and ASP.NET MVC when it ships; currently forecast for initial delivery sometime in 2017.
fter 3+ years hosted at Weebly.com, it was time to finally take The AppRefactory Inc. company website into a modern hosting environment with features and integration potential that would allow us to demonstrate, albeit in brief, what ASP.NET MVC could offer. Dynamic product listings with breadcrumb sub-navigation, upload sections for partner contracts and résumés; and database-driven contact forms that make it easier than ever (and convenient) to stay in touch are all just the beginning. In the days ahead we still expect to add:
- Links to customer features site (requiring login) via Office365, Visual Studio (online ed.) and SharePoint,
- Highlights and links to ongoing software development currently being undertaken by the company,
- Book time online with a consultant to review your software service needs or setup an in-depth remote service session online through HackHands.com,
- Subscription for partner companies and contacts looking for email updates consultant availability and/or major site & service offering revisions, and
- Links to WindowsStore.com and related sites for specific product integrations (Windows desktop, server and phone all to be included).
So stay tuned! There’s much more yet to come….and you won’t want to miss any of it.

ue to certain issues with the “free” WordPress/IIS host I’d previously been using on and off for the past couple of years, I’ve ended my experimental hosting experience and returned here after all. A couple of minor articles were deleted — but nothing too critical.
So I’ll resume in the weeks ahead posting here on articles of interest mostly to me, but perhaps to some of you out there as well. 😉 Hope the summer is going well for all!
ery candid exchange between two enterprise-tech pundits on the current state of affairs in the cloud space. Can the cloud save you money? As is so often the case, success is typically found in the execution as much as being duly responsive to customers. Commentators from Ericsson and Apcera offer perspectives on their own experience which might well be mirrored elsewhere…
The definitions of cloud computing have shifted a lot in the past several years, but a few things never change. Whether it’s located in an Amazon data center or a company’s own, whether it’s virtual servers or an entire platform for deploying applications, the cloud is supposed to serve many users, it’s supposed to improve flexibility and it’s supposed to save money. It all sounds great, but these guiding lights don’t always jibe with existing attitudes toward security and compliances and the systems put in place to enforce them.
On this week’s Structure Show podcast, we interviewed Derek Collision (above, left) — founder of a company called Apcera that’s all about making it easy to enforce policies while gaining the benefits of cloud computing — and Jason Hoffman (above, right) — the head of cloud computing at Ericsson (and former founder and CTO of Joyent), which just invested millions of…

he AppRefactory Inc. launches its first service offering today with the debut of a partnership with Google Inc. through Google Helpouts.

…and much, much more!
Google Helpouts also offers payment features that allows either the business or individual user to use services on a demand basis easily. And with this launch, the service is being offered, for a limited time, with a free support instance — giving potential customers an opportunity to “try-and-buy” for a fixed 20-minute session, without charges or fees applied. (See Google Helpouts terms & conditions for more info.)
ebsites don’t ordinarily get version numbers; but in the case of The AppRefactory Inc. website, there may well be an exception. Although the website was technically delivered on August 21st, some last minute technical details (including a DNS issue that needed resolving) delayed the declaration of “mission accomplished” until today. However, we can now safely state — and unequivocally — The AppRefactory Inc. website has been officially launched.
Thunderous applause, please!
Just to quote the official announcement:
The AppRefactory Inc. has launched its website, bringing with it information about a number of its service offerings and other basic information about the company. In addition to acting as a tool for making the general public aware about its services, the weeks and months ahead also promise the excitement of new title product launches plus its integration into other projects (already being developed) as a platform for a host of Internet-based services growing an ever-larger, steady stream of new users of every type.
Please review the content and watch for what’s coming soon or learn more about what we offer today. And check back soon – because even more is on the way!
Next, my attention turns to uploaded the final release of AR CamFeeder which has been sitting on the backburner for the past few weeks while I got distracted by another project. But it won’t be long before I’ll follow-up about that and the next project behind that – already all queued up. Like the announcement says: stay tuned!
