Windows CE to stay here ? A ‘Real-time’ analysis.

Windows CE to stay here ? A ‘Real-time’ analysis.

After the advent of windows on ARM/Windows Phone 8, there is always a concern among the windows CE community on the future of Windows CE. When compared to windows on ARM/windows phone 8 there are many reasons to believe that windows CE is here to stay, in this blog I compare one of the interrupt handling features – priority inheritance mechanism, of Windows CE that determines its real-time capability. How predictable and reliable a system is, on reacting to an interrupt, defines its real-time effectiveness. When a common resource is shared among 3 tasks using Mutex there is a possibility of a situation where the high priority task had to wait for the lower priority task to release the shared resource. In this case the high priority  task remains blocked, causing a priority inversion situation where high priority task is indirectly pre-empted by a low priority task, effectively “inverting” the relative priorities of the two tasks, meaning the high-priority task has to wait for the completion of the lower...

Enterprise Business and Enterprise Mobility – New wine in new bottle.

Enterprise Business and Enterprise Mobility – New wine in new bottle.

The past weeks, I mulled over the oft debated topic of Technology and Business drivers from an Enterprise Mobility context. It is becoming clear that Technology drivers can help position mobility technology offerings as entry criteria in to an Enterprise – However, in-order to sustain growth, it is the business drivers that have historically ruled the roost. The gap that needs to be bridged effectively is the relevance of Technology in context of a Business – and that arguably mandates some degree of the business domain knowledge. I see no difference in the case of Enterprise Mobility offerings. Many enterprises are signing up new vendors – even start-ups – but for a reason; which is, to experiment these new mobility offerings, generate proof points, and establish some first-hand experience in mobility case studies. The tough question that begs an answer is, “whether these new vendors who got into the Enterprise accounts will stay and grow, or will get displaced by larger players who will throw scale, play catch-up on...

Enterprise Mobility – The promised land…Part 2

Enterprise Mobility – The promised land…Part 2

Just like the explorers out on sea in search of new land, betting a business on a new trend in technology is nothing short of being intrepid. Patience, fortitude, courage and belief… Constantly looking at the compass and course correcting may be the order of the day. For Sasken, having started out early in this field gives the benefit to look back when most others are only looking forward – Let me explain. Assuming that past is a good indication of the future when it comes to business – Enterprise Mobility in Sasken has built a useful rear view mirror and now looking forward out through the windshield takes on a whole new meaning. Almost like primary research, our investment has yielded hard insights about Enterprise behavior, buying patterns, their fears and their caution when it comes to bringing in new technology trends in their main stream. Fundamentally, their is one *big* question out there in the Enterprises, and there isn’t a clear answer just yet – Everyone accepts...
