SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Foresite Software Systems Inc. is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a complimentary webinar, the latest in a series of educational seminars for the manufacturing industry. As of December 2012, the EU REACH regulation SVHC list was expanded to 138 substances that must now be declared to upstream customers and regulators, and the new substance and labeling requirements under the REACH regulation's substance and mixture provisions have now taken effect. These regulatory disclosure obligations will send ripple effects through industry, which will increase with the approach of the June 1, 2013, registration deadline for pre-registered substances being imported into the EU.
In an effort to continue to support industry in managing the ever expanding requirements of environmental regulation, the Foresite webinar will discuss the emerging REACH requirements and the best practices for managing the associated obligations including:
- An outline and recap of the new obligations under the REACH and CLP regulatory framework.
- A discussion and briefing concerning the pending impacts REACH will impose on industry in 2013.
- A briefing concerning how to coordinate building an inventory of full material declarations that can satisfy the disclosure requirements of the REACH regulation.
- A demonstration of what a functional system of record should look like and how it should be used for compliance purposes.
The webinar will be presented by Travis Miller, Vice President of Regulatory Services and Graham Margetson, President of Sales and Marketing for Foresite Compliance. Travis and Graham are recognized experts in environmental regulatory compliance business processes, and have advised many of the largest blue chip companies on how to develop sound, defensible regulatory compliance processes. Those interested in registering for the free Webinar may do so by visiting www.foresitecloud.com and clicking on the Webinar Tab.
Lance Allison, CEO of Foresite, stated "As this deadline approaches, the ability for manufacturers, distributors and retailers to identify, maintain and disclose the exact substance concentration within product and to maintain clear audit trails featuring source collateral documentation will be critical for compliance. Correspondingly, as the regulation matures, the resulting enforcement measures for non-compliance are anticipated to escalate."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

The IT industry is undergoing a significant evolution to keep up with cloud application demand. We see this happening as a mindset shift, from traditional IT teams to more well-rounded, cloud-focused job roles. The IT industry has become so cloud-minded that Gartner predicts that by 2020, this cloud shift will impact more than $1 trillion of global IT spending. This shift, however, has left some IT professionals feeling a little anxious about what lies ahead. The good news is that cloud computin...

To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facing...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

The rise of containers and microservices has skyrocketed the rate at which new applications are moved into production environments today. While developers have been deploying containers to speed up the development processes for some time, there still remain challenges with running microservices efficiently. Most existing IT monitoring tools don’t actually maintain visibility into the containers that make up microservices. As those container applications move into production, some IT operations t...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

Thanks to Docker and the DevOps revolution, microservices have emerged as the new way to build and deploy applications — and there are plenty of great reasons to embrace the microservices trend. If you are going to adopt microservices, you also have to understand that microservice architectures have many moving parts. When it comes to incident management, this presents an important difference between microservices and monolithic architectures. More moving parts mean more complexity to monitor an...

Microservices (μServices) are a fascinating evolution of the Distributed Object Computing (DOC) paradigm. Initial design of DOC attempted to solve the problem of simplifying developing complex distributed applications by applying object-oriented design principles to disparate components operating across networked infrastructure. In this model, DOC “hid” the complexity of making this work from the developer regardless of the deployment architecture through the use of complex frameworks, such as C...
