Company: International Spectrum
Nathan Rector, President of International Spectrum, has been in the
MultiValue marketplace as a consultant, author, and presenter since
1992. As a consultant, Nathan specialized in integrating MultiValue
applications with other devices and non-MultiValue data, structures,
and applications into existing MultiValue databases. During that
time, Nathan worked with PDA, Mobile Device, Handheld scanners, POS,
and other manufacturing and distribution interfaces.
In 2006, Nathan purchased International Spectrum Magazine and
Conference and has been working with the MultiValue Community to
expand its reach into current technologies and markets. During this
time he has been providing mentorship training to people converting
Console Applications (Green Screen/Text Driven) to GUI (Graphical User
Interfaces), Mobile, and Web. He has also been working with new
developers to the MultiValue Marketplace to train them in how
MultiValue works and acts, as well as how it differs from the
traditional Relational Database Model (SQL).
Let's say you are a rock star or a professional athlete. You have talent.
More than that, you are a master of your craft. Performing — onstage or on
the playing field — is the practical demonstration of what you can do.
Despite the hours you spend playing in public, you are still required to
practice, practice, practice in private.
Many technological advancements have created new ways of doing business.
Some are obvious, like the impact of the spreadsheet or the word processor.
With Augmented Reality (AR), the business case is less clear. This article
will talk about how Augmented Reality will be used in business and some of
what sort of software changes you can expect.
The MD5 message-digest algorithm is a widely used cryptographic hash
function producing a 128-bit (16-byte) hash value, typically expressed in
text format as a 32-digit hexadecimal number. MD5 has been utilized in a
wide variety of cryptographic applications and is also commonly used to
verify data integrity.
Changes are a-coming, if you have not already seen them. Because businesses
are increasing IT spending for automation projects your work load and
requirements are increasing.
A Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) is an identifier standard used in
many non-MultiValue databases and software to generate a Unique Id outside
of using incremental numbers. A UUID is simply a 128-bit unique value that
can be expressed as either a larger number, or a string.
This is part 4 in a series on exploring what it takes to build a
Line-Of-Business application from scratch using the tools and features found
in modern software technologies. In this article we explore identity
management. What does it take to provide provide security, access
management, and business discipline to the users of your software? Read Part

It is the time of year that I start planning for the next Spectrum
conference. If you haven't yet seen the ad for the 2017 Spectrum, it will be
May 1st-4th at The Wigwam in Litchfield Park, (Phoenix), Arizona. This is
the same venue as the 2016 conference.
What is the Most Valuable Asset in your company?
Key Management The key to keys is the key to success. Creating record keys
on-the-fly is common in software development, but a little planning can go a
long way. This is part three of our article series exploring what it takes
to build a Line-Of-Business application from scratch, using the tools and
features found in modern software technologies.
In cryptography, SHA-1 (Secure Hash Algorithm 1) is a cryptographic hash
function designed by the United States National Security Agency and is a
U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard published by the United
State NIST. SHA1 is used in many places to generate a unique Hash value
representing a string or file. It is widely used in place of MD4 and MD5
a more secure hash value. While not as secure as SHA256, it is still used
many places for data integrity, version control, and other features that
need an unique one-way signatures.
