Cost will vary across individual Zipbike programs based on input from each university. In general, though, Zipcar says the cost to riders will be in line with most other bike-share programs, which include a small membership fee, with a set amount of free time per ride followed by a flat hourly rate. The announcement comes as Zipcar is experimenting with new price options, offering pay-per-mile plans in some US cities rather than the per-hour system the company is known for. … [Read more...] about Zipcar is launching bike-share programs on 15 college campuses

It said that while there have been improvements in the last few years in telecommunications access in many parts of remote Australia, through the introduction of the NBN Sky Muster satellite, the Mobile Blackspots Program, and state and local programs such as the Community Phones Program, these projects only go partway to delivering digital inclusion. … [Read more...] about iNTTN democratising access to telecommunications across Australia
SOA isn't a new concept -- in fact, sister site TechRepublic has been writing about it since at least 2003, and the definition given back then still applies 17 years later: "In an SOA, the architect attempts to encapsulate the delivery of a specific set of tasks within a single entity that accepts a service request and returns the results of the work performed on its behalf or errors resulting from a failed attempt. The combination of these services, along with guidance on how they can be combined to complete an application, makes up an SOA." … [Read more...] about SOA versus microservices: How are they different?

If you consider the implication of this, what technical folks call an 'abstraction layer', the power of microservices quickly becomes apparent. If the providers of this microservice completely change the hardware, programming language, or physical location of their data center, the user of that service is completely unaffected as long as it continues to return the expected results in the same format. For an internal software application, you no longer have to worry about the painstaking and expensive work of rewriting interfaces and complex connections between systems if they are delivered by microservices. If you have a set of standardized order management microservices, it doesn't matter if your order management infrastructure is on a mainframe running a COBOL application on Monday and a modern ERP system on Tuesday: the microservice should still deliver the same results, and that change will be seamless to any other application that uses that service. … [Read more...] about Microservices 101: A guide to microservice architecture
