Press Release: The Boston Consulting Group Is Named to Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies List for the Eleventh Time

BOSTON, Sept. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Working Mother magazine has named The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) one of its “100 Best Companies” for U.S. working mothers for the eleventh time. The 2017 list, published in the current issue, highlights BCG’s progressive inclusion programs, paid family leave policies, and flexible work options.  

Working Mother also praised BCG for conducting its own research into topics of diversity and inclusion and engaging senior women. “As part of its work conducting research into women’s issues, this management-consulting firm recently explored the need for businesses to foster inclusion, engage senior women, and offer paid family leave,” the magazine notes. “What it found prompted internal changes, motivating leaders to appoint a director of diversity recruiting, educate managers about unconscious bias, launch mentoring for women partners, and increase paid maternity leave to 16 weeks.”

“Female consultants (no doubt pleased by the changes) have doubled their presence here since 2011,” the magazine added. “The firm pays them well and allows them to adopt flexible career paths, work part-time, and take eight-week leaves of absence.”

The firm’s Apprenticeship in Action (AiA) program was also highlighted by the magazine: “AiA has helped more than 1,000 employees pinpoint more-authentic approaches to leadership, which has prompted a shift in how they view those they work with and manage. This creates a more supportive environment for women, who have increased their numbers in the consulting ranks by 80% over the past five years and now make up 25% of all U.S. leaders.”

As part of the coverage, Working Mother also showcases Elfrun von Koeller, a New York-based partner, as a Working Mother of the Year. Elfrun has served as a valuable role model, balancing outstanding client service in the consumer sector with her focus on mentoring team members, while raising two young daughters in a dual-career household. She also led BCG’...

Press Release: Runtime Provides Commercial Support for Bluetooth Mesh; Demonstrates Estimote Mirror at Bluetooth Asia

Bluetooth Asia, Shenzen, China , Sept. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Runtime, an IoT platform and open source solution provider, today announced commercial support for Bluetooth Mesh, increasing connectivity choices for global consumers and industrial IoT deployments. Bluetooth Mesh networking, adopted in July 2017 by the Bluetooth SIG, is an extension to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) that allows for multi-hop communications over Bluetooth. Runtime’s commercial offering for Bluetooth Mesh includes support for the recently released Apache Mynewt 1.2, an open source operating system for constrained, microcontroller devices.

In contrast with point-to-point networks, mesh networks extend the diameter of a network, increasing coverage, adding resiliency, and lowering deployment costs. In conjunction with new Bluetooth 5 functionality such as higher data rates and extended range, Bluetooth mesh networking extends addressable use cases and markets from “consumer” to “commercial and industrial.” The increased adoption of open source code bases such as the NimBLE stack in Apache Mynewt increases the likelihood of interoperability across implementations.

“Until Bluetooth 5 and Mesh, most BLE applications were short-range and consumer-oriented, centered on connectivity to mobile phones,” said James Pace, Runtime CEO and cofounder. “With new functionality and new use cases, Bluetooth is poised to address an estimated 48 billion devices1. Open source and the decreased cost of connectivity chips will play a key role in this exponential growth.”

For more information, please download Runtime’s white paper, “The Benefits of Open Source Bluetooth Stacks,” published in English and

Press Release: Bell Integrator Automates Unistream Business Application Testing

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bell Integrator, a global consulting and technology services company, helps Unistream, an international money transfer company, to automate business application testing process. This project became an important milestone in accelerating global time to market for Unistream’s products and services.  

Considering the development of the industry and the quickly changing competitive environment, Unistream is improving its primary banking and payment systems. In order to quickly and properly launch products and services on the market, Unistream uses DevOps technology for its testing and operation cycles. The growing number of products in development and being introduced has created a need to speed up the testing process, which is one of the most important parts of taking a business idea from concept to implementation.  

This process used to be extremely labor- and time-consuming. Unistream chose Bell Integrator to solve this problem.

“We are happy to be participating in this project because we have extensive experience optimizing processes improving our customers' time to market while introducing new features, products or services for financial institutions. We are happy with the results thus far. I believe the application of our streamlined processes with the right mix of technology enables our customer to scale and introduce new services at the right speed and the right time,” said Aleksei Ananiev, Bell Integrator’s Business Development Director.

In the past few months, Bell Integrator has streamlined the manual testing process and has accelerated the transformation towards complete automation. As a result, time spent preparing and releasing new versions of Unistream’s software suite has already been reduced to one fourth of the original time. Thanks to innovative techniques and technologies, automated methods and eliminating the human factor, we have managed to significantly increase the quality of their software.

“As part of this project, we are finishing up another stage of improving Unistream Bank’s infrastructure.  In accordance with the DevOps methodology adopted by the bank, we continue to steadily improve the performance and quality indicators of the software and hardware suite, as well as significantly increase accessibility and IT system fail-safety indicators.
