Internet Security Threat Report 2014

It's not only Microsoft products that take three versions to get any momentum going, it seems. Now that CORBA has notched up its own version 3, all of a sudden the sounds of cash registers ringing up sales are being heard. The latest wheeze is The ORB Agency, a new subsidiary of APPS Ltd which specialises in resources (by being a job agency and providing contract staff) for Oracle applications. After a couple of years trading, the firm is turning over some £6 million. It has now decided to apply the same model to the object management market. Neale Provan, managing director based in Isleworth, told The Register that he expects the contract business to predominate over the recruitment side. PeerLogic, who acquired ICL's DAIS Orb when ICL jumped into bed with Microsoft last year, is supporting the Agency. ®
