Microsoft is rolling out new cloud technologies for wrangling, protecting and analyzing large amounts of corporate data, escalating its competition with Google, Snowflake and Amazon in the $25 billion global market for data analytics and business intelligence.

Microsoft said its previously announced Azure Synapse Analytics technology is now generally available, with capabilities including data warehousing, artificial intelligence, security and compliance. The company also announced a preview of a new product, Azure Purview, which automatically discovers data across cloud platforms, on-premises servers and online applications.

Speaking via video at a virtual event, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella made an apparent appeal to Amazon’s competitors, without mentioning the company by name. Nadella said it’s important to be able to trust not just a vendor’s technology capabilities and but also its “business model alignment” with its customers.

Control Engineering | Secure-by-design industrial products are increasingly important

 

Learning Objectives

  • Design cybersecurity into automation and systems, including Industrial Internet of Things upgrades. 
  • Consider cybersecurity as a catalyst for system modernization and use of cybersecurity standards. 
  • Drive cybersecurity into the industrial control system procurement process. 

Those in the industrial and critical infrastructure sectors increasingly seek products and solutions that are inherently cybersecure. In many cases, cybersecurity provides the catalyst for control system modernization projects. This is especially true in cases where users discover they can no longer support an installed base that requires an increasing amount of time and resources to make it cyber-secure.

Much of the cybersecurity focus for industry and infrastructure to date has focused on providing layers of cybersecurity on top of existing infrastructure, rather than procuring products and applications that provide a level of inherent cybersecurity. Inherent cybersecurity is often achieved through some combination of product design features and a secure development lifecycle

The digital revolution has changed how products are designed.

Today digital data from a 3D model, produced predominantly using a CAD system, is exported to CAM software, which is used to convert that model into a file format that can be sent to a fabrication tool that will then produce a physical replica of that digital model. Fabrication tools are computer-controlled manufacturing processes and are either additive or subtractive. The additive process is 3D printing, which builds a product up by adding material layer-by-layer, whereas the subtractive process, which includes CNC machining and laser cutting, removes material from a solid block or sheet to create a product. 

This workflow of turning digital data into physical objects is referred to as digital modelling

OSOM to offer ‘premium products’ focused on privacy from late 2021

  • Former Essential employees have founded a new startup.
  • OSOM is focused on giving users more control over their personal data.
  • The first software and hardware products are expected in late 2021.

After Essential officially shut down earlier this year, the company’s former employees have founded a new startup focused on privacy. Out of Sight, Out of Mind – or OSOM – wants to give users control over their personal data. The news first broke in September, with founder Jason Keats announcing the venture. Now, we have a better idea of what the company might offer its users.

Speaking to CNET, Keats didn’t explicitly call OSOM a smartphone maker. While the company now employs nine people, eight of which previously hail from Essential, OSOM isn’t planning to follow in the old company’s footsteps.

“Essential had 80% of a great idea,” Keats says. “But we needed to come up with what
