Mobile Security and Functionality

I met with IBM this morning and we ended up discussing their role in the CAPWIN project.  The CAPWIN environment and goals align closely with what we are trying to build in Utah.  IBM is working closely with eTeam to integrate enterprise document management and searching capabilities with incident management in a way that can be delivered securely to the wireless / mobile environment.

Later, we had a presentation from Ecutel which provides mobile VPN security.  Looks like a good product.  We'll meet with some other vendors later and then develop an RFP to move forward.

XML Registry

Windley's commentary on DLA's XML registry gets at one of the components that I want to include on xml.utah.gov.  I have reserved the URL and just need to find time to get it down.

As far as PDFs, I've known for quite a while that they could be much more than a static document that you print, fill out and mail in - they've had digital signature and other capabilities for some time (seldom used), but adding XML into the mix is interesting.  I'll have to check that out.

Siebel Help Desk

Siebel's Office Space at Jordan CommonsWe met with Mark Sunday, CIO of Siebel, on Wednesday and had a follow up meeting with Siebel yesterday to discuss our implementation of Siebel help desk.  There have been some problems with the project and we either need to get it turned around and done right or move on.  For some reason, some of the agents that provided input into the project did not want to implement the online service request functionality.  To me, that was completely unacceptable and removes a lot of the value that could be gained.

Siebel has moved the headquarters of its IT operations to Sandy and has expressed a strong commitment to the project's success.  We will be working over the next few days to clarify the vision and requirements.

Like most IT companies, Siebel's stock has taken a tremendous hit over the past year from a high of over $35 per share down to $9.43 currently.  It bottomed out at about $5 and is on its way back up.  Siebel is #19 on Fortune's list of the top 100 fastest growing companies.  It also ranks as #5 on the list of most admired companies in the Computer Software industry.
