NGC Software Earns Top 10 Rankings in Retail Industry's Most Influential Guide to Software Vendors

MIAMI --(Business Wire)--

NGC Software® today announced that it earned three top 10 rankings in the 2012 RIS News Software LeaderBoard, widely regarded as the retail industry's most prestigious guide to the top retail technology software companies.

Now in its 12th year, the RIS News Software LeaderBoard is produced by the industry's #1 retail technology publication. Based entirely on retailer evaluations, the LeaderBoard ranks technology vendors based on customer satisfaction across a wide range of criteria. The LeaderBoard is a widely quoted, eagerly anticipated annual report that many in the industry have called the Oscars of retail technology. It serves as a guide to help retailers find the vendors and solutions they need with an unmatched level of clarity.

For this year's LeaderBoard, retailers evaluated 100 software vendors in 50 different technology categories. NGC was one of only two PLM/Supply Chain Management providers named to the 2012 RIS News Software LeaderBoard, with top-10 finishes in three categories:

  • Targeted Solution Vendor Leaders
  • Criteria Leaders in ROI
  • Vendor Leaders in Customer Satisfaction

"The Software LeaderBoard represents the 'best of the best' in retail technology software vendors, and NGC Software joins an elite group by being named to the 2012 RIS LeaderBoard," said Joe Skorupa, group editor-in-chief, RIS News. "Return on Investment and Customer Satisfaction are critical measures of a software vendor's performance, and retailers have named NGC as one of the very best in these categories. NGC has distinguished itself not only among PLM and Suppy Chain Management providers but across the full breadth of retail technology solution providers as well."

"NGC is honored to be named to the 2012 RIS LeaderBoard, and we appreciate this validation from our retail customers," said Mark Burstein, president of sales, marketing and R&D for NGC Software. "PLM and SCM are critical technologies for helping retailers shorten lead times and improve profitability, and NGC is proud to work with many of the very best retailers in the industry."

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
