ROME, ITALY--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2012) - NCR Innovation Forum - INETCO Systems Ltd., a leading provider of business transaction management (BTM) solutions, today announced that INETCO Insight will be offered as an alternative to the existing transaction aggregator and categorizer within the NCR (NYSE:NCR) APTRA Vision and Gasper Vantage products. Product completion is scheduled for late fall 2012.
INETCO Insight will capture the transactional information required by APTRA Vision and Gasper Vantage without the use of ATM- or host- based agents, extra traffic load or code changes. By adopting a network-based approach to collecting transaction intelligence, NCR makes it easier and more cost effective for banking, retail and payment processing customers to deploy a combined, "one-stop" monitoring solution that covers ATM device performance and business transaction management. This end-to-end solution can be running within ATM or any other self-service network environments in a matter of hours, greatly reducing the time to value.
"The INETCO Insight end-to-end transaction monitoring capabilities, coupled with NCR's APTRA Vision or Gasper Vantage products, represents an integrated solution that is far superior to any other self-service network management offering on the market today," says Michael O'Laughlin, senior vice president, NCR Financial Services. "NCR is pleased to provide our customers a holistic, easy-to-scale solution to managing their expanding multi-channel transaction environments in a timely, cost-effective manner."
"Our ability to offer transaction-level monitoring with zero overhead removes a major deployment hurdle that has traditionally restricted companies from accessing the transaction data they need to truly understand service delivery," says Bijan Sanii, President and CEO of INETCO. "A combined solution offering of APTRA Vision and INETCO Insight will help NCR customers increase service availability, enhance the consumer experience and improve the performance of their self-service networks."
INETCO Insight captures and decodes individual transactions in real time and when fed into Gasper Vantage or APTRA Vision, increases the granularity of statistical reporting data.
In addition, INETCO Insight acquires and displays the transaction response times for each customer facing device, network, transaction switch, third party service, EFT or authorization bank connection that makes up each individual transaction path. NCR customers have the ability to track, in real-time, every consumer interaction taking place. They can receive instant notification when transactions slow down, time out or fail, and can quickly isolate third party response issues, communications failures, underperforming components or infrastructure bottlenecks - on average 65% faster.
INETCO® Systems Limited provides transaction-based application performance monitoring and business transaction management solutions to ATM and IT operations teams that are looking for a faster, non-invasive way to identify application and infrastructure bottlenecks and ensure optimal service and business process delivery within their production environments. INETCO's solutions are currently deployed in over 50 different countries. Happy INETCO Insight® partners and customers include a variety of global companies spanning the banking, ATM, retail, healthcare, travel, telecommunications and payment processing markets. http://www.inetco.com

LONDON, October 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Employers need to fill job vacancies within 67 working days (14 working weeks) before tech professionals assume it's a job no one wants, according to research carried out by Randstad Technologies, the IT and technology recruiter.
Randstad asked 2,001 members of the public, "How many working days does a vacancy for a permanent job have to be open before it starts to look like a bad job that no one wants?"
The UK's working population said they thought a post has to be vacant 74 days before it looks like a bad job that no one wants, 1 working week more than tech professionals.
In a similar survey, Randstad found that, on average, professionals in tech or IT jobs feel they currently have to perform the job of 1.5 people meaning they are covering 50% more work than one person should be; the equivalent of fitting an additional two and a half days worth of work into the ordinary working week.
Mike Beresford, managing director of Randstad Technologies, said, "Tech professionals are far more concerned about the length of time a vacancy's been advertised than the rest of the UK's workforce. They work in a fast paced world which rapidly evolves every day. A stagnant recruitment process signals alarm bells.Recruiting for a techpost is like trying to sell your house. Leave it on the market too longand, for whatever reason,peoplestart to think there is something wrong with it.That leads to fewer applicationsand increased pressures on the rest of the staff left trying to cover the empty position. We know tech professionalsalready feel they are performing the job of one and a half people. If they're cramming an extra two and a half days worth of work into a working week, they are going to find it extremely difficult to cover for vacant job posts, too."
IDEAL PERMANENT RECRUITMENT PROCESS OVER 50% FASTER THAN VACANCY SHELF LIFE
As part of the research, recruitment consultants working at Randstad Technologies were asked what the ideal length of time was to fill a vacancy, balancing the need to secure the best candidate for the job and the need for organisations to fill a skills gap. The poll found that given those criteria Randstad's consultants thought 29 days (just under 6 working weeks) was the ideal.
Mike Beresford said, "While IT and Tech workers won't start judging a job negatively until the vacancy has been on the market for 67 days, the ideal recruitment window is actually under half this time. A positive and efficient interview experience creates a fantastic first impression and is the first step in winning the battle for premium talent signing on your dotted line. It may seem obvious but having a clear plan before embarking on any recruitment activity is vital. The availability of all the stakeholders required to interview candidates, run assessments and finally authorise the hire is the most common cause for delay so something as simple as a co-ordinated diary management approach can make a huge difference."
Notes to editors
The Randstad group is one of the leading recruitment & HR services providers in the world with a top five position in the UK and a top three position in fifteen countries including the US, France and Germany.
In the UK, Randstad's business lines serve the public and private sectors across Accounting and Financial services; Business Support; Construction, Property and Engineering; Education; Health and Social Care; Interim Management and Search; Human Resources; IT; Legal; Retail; Sales, Marketing and Creative; Student and Worker Support and In-House and Managed Services.
At the end of 2011, Randstad had 1,930 corporate employees in the UK, working in 255 locations. UK revenue in 2011 was €789 million. Randstad was founded in 1960 and is headquartered in Diemen, the Netherlands. Randstad Holding nv is listed on the NYSE Euronext Amsterdam. For more information see http://www.randstad.co.uk and http://www.randstad.com.
The results of this research were gained from data from 2,001 people surveyed by Canadean between 23rd and 30th July 2012 (Including 113 from the Technologies Market sector) and a survey on ideal time to hire of 35 Randstad Technologies consultants conducted on Weds 19th September.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BorgWarner (NYSE: BWA) will expand its variable cam timing (VCT) technology with a new family of cam phasers for I4 engines. The modular design supports a variety of cam phasing technologies, including cam torque actuated (CTA) and torsional assist (TA) phasers with optional mid position lock technology. Each phaser also features an integrated center bolt and spool valve for smaller package size and easier installation. The technology is planned to launch with a major global automaker on diesel and gasoline applications in 2015. Both will be supported by production at a new facility in Eastern Europe. The new facility complements a number of existing global facilities producing VCT technology and strengthens BorgWarner's ability to support global customers with local production.
"I4 engines have captured about 75 percent of the global engine market and are forecast to power over 17 million additional vehicles in the next seven years. Our new cam phasing technology is engineered to offer automakers customized, fast-to-market VCT solutions to support increasing demand for efficient, downsized engines," said Joe Fadool, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Morse TEC. "BorgWarner's modular cam phaser technology gives automakers more flexibility in choosing the configuration that best meets their performance parameters with the added benefits of a compact package and simplified installation."
BorgWarner's new family of cam phasers showcases its broad expertise in VCT technology. Using the existing torsional energy in the valve train, CTA phasers actuate more quickly, use less engine oil and operate under a wider range of engine speeds and temperatures than conventional VCT systems. TA phasers, which use torsional energy and standard engine oil pressure to actuate the phaser, offer a wide range of authority, achieving 70 degrees of crank rotation or more. BorgWarner phasers can actuate rapidly, resulting in improved low-end engine performance in downsized, direct-injected boosted engines.
For added calibration opportunities, BorgWarner's patented mid position lock technology allows an increased range of camshaft positioning with a default stop at an intermediate position within the expanded range of travel. The built-in failsafe ensures the phaser returns to the middle position for reliable engine starts in nearly any potential operating condition. All phasers also feature an integrated center bolt and spool valve, resulting in a compact design that has fewer parts and is easy to install.
Auburn Hills, Michigan-based BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE: BWA) is a technology leader in highly engineered components and systems for powertrain applications worldwide. Operating manufacturing and technical facilities in 59 locations in 19 countries, the company develops products to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and enhance performance. Customers include VW/Audi, Ford, Toyota, Renault/Nissan, General Motors, Hyundai/Kia, Daimler, Chrysler, Fiat, BMW, Honda, John Deere, PSA, and MAN. For more information, please visit borgwarner.com.
BorgWarner's new family of cam phasers for I4 engines offer automakers flexible, fast-to-market VCT solutions to support increasing demand for efficient, downsized engines.

COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite a strong performance with younger voters in the 2008 presidential campaign, a new poll shows President Barack Obama failed to connect with this critical demographic during last night's televised presidential debate.
A national poll conducted by Surveys on the Go® shows that nearly 60 percent of 18- to 34-year-old voters who watched last night's debate between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney believe that Romney came out on top. Just 41 percent believed President Obama "won." The poll, fielded on Oct. 4, was conducted via the Surveys on the Go smartphone survey application and includes a sample of 1,515 likely voters.
"The poll shows that President Obama's performance last night fell flat with younger voters, a group he needs to hold in order to win re-election," said Chris St. Hilaire, founder and CEO of Surveys on the Go®. "At the same time, Governor Romney delivered a strong performance in the eyes of younger voters, who have been disproportionately affected by the country's stalled economy."
In an open-ended question survey respondents described the president's performance as "disinterested" and "unprepared." A number of respondents also either perceived Governor Romney as "rude to the moderator" or as "sharp" and "confident."
A number of voters recalled Governor Romney's "attack on Big Bird," in reference to the governor's discussion of cutting PBS funding.
On the lighter side, seven percent of participants said they played a drinking game while watching. Among the most popular "take a drink" triggers were "Obamacare," "47 percent," "Let me be clear" (Obama), "middle class," "millionaires and billionaires," "small business" and when the candidates interrupted each other or the moderator.
The poll was fielded by Surveys on the Go®, an online data collection firm that utilizes traditional online survey technology as well as smartphone application technology to survey voters in the modern environment. www.Surveysonthego.net

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK), Micron (Nasdaq: MU), Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), Anadigics (Nasdaq: ANAD), and TriQuint Semiconductor (Nasdaq: TQNT).
Editor Paul McWilliams' recent reports cover the following topics and more:
-- SanDisk: In July, when SanDisk was trading at $36.48, McWilliams told investors that SanDisk was deeply undervalued. With shares now 23% higher, does McWilliams expect further gains for SanDisk investors? Could SanDisk shares move above $50 in the near term? What two near-term catalysts could strongly benefit SanDisk in the next few months?
-- Micron: In April, McWilliams warned that if we saw the correction he forecasted a week earlier, the price of Micron could dip into the $5s, which would create a buying opportunity. The correction arrived as predicted, and Micron closed trading on June 4th at $5.39. Following this, in July, McWilliams advised investors to sell at $6.38 for a quick 22% return. With Micron now trading below $6 again, is it time for investors to consider the stock for another profitable trade?
-- Alcatel-Lucent: With Alcatel-Lucent trading near penny stock levels, does McWilliams expect a turnaround to come into play this year and next? Have the odds of success improved for Alcatel-Lucent?
-- Anadigics: What factors have led to underperformance at Anadigics? What hurdles does the company need to clear to initiate a turnaround? Does Anadigics have the balance sheet strength to fund its recovery?
-- TriQuint: Why have TriQuint shares fallen even after it was confirmed that TriQuint parts are used in Apple's new iPhone? Has the weakness in the share price created a buying opportunity for investors?

So far, the roadmap Editor Paul McWilliams laid out for 2012 has been extremely accurate. In March, just two days before the market peaked and began its over two-month slide, he warned Next Inning readers that stock prices were peaking and a correction was headed our way. Following this, once the markets bottomed, he predicted we would see prices rally through the Q2 earnings season. As it turned out, this was one of the strongest rallies the market has seen in a very long time.
However, following the close on September 14, 2012, McWilliams published his most recent Strategy Review and, in that, predicted again that the markets were due for another drop ahead of the November election. This time he nailed the year-to-date high to the day. If you are a tech investor, you'll want to be sure to read what McWilliams predicts will happen next.
McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned a reputation for his skill in communicating complex technology trends to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.
McWilliams' highly acclaimed State of Tech Report, a comprehensive guide for the Q3 2012 earnings season has just been published. This report covers 72 leading and emerging tech companies that are expected to generate nearly one trillion dollars in sales next year from twelve sectors ranging from materials and wafer fabrication to finished goods.

The release of the new apps will incorporate all of the major functions of TagLikeMe's social search and share online capabilities in a sleek, new, compact and highly efficient social mobile interface with the potential to reach an enormous audience across all of the major platforms including iOS, Android, and Windows 8 systems.
Richard Elliot-Square, President of TagLikeMe Corp. states, "Our release of apps for the entire slate of mobile platforms in Q4 is a major step towards putting TagLikeMe on every device and in the hands of virtually anyone who wants to search and share with a social interest. According to current market data, there are over 1.6 billion mobile users who are accessing information at an incredible rate. We want to engage that audience and rapidly become the most useful and used app across all platforms."
The importance of the new mobile apps cannot be understated. The iPhone has now sold over 210 million units since the original iPhone launched in 2007, as well as 25 million iPads in just 14 months. Additionally, Android devices have taken over a large share of the market with over 300 million Android devices now in use throughout the world, as well as 12 million tablets, giving it a top spot on tablet devices as well.
Planned introductions for the TagLikeMe mobile apps include major enhancements that are most useful for TagLikeMe.com users.

Microsoft announced the introduction of its new Surface Tablet mobile computing device in April 2012. The company expects to release the units to the public in tandem with the introduction of Windows 8 scheduled for October 26, 2012. According to Microsoft, the Surface Tablet will operate on the new Windows 8 operating system.
Google's Android platform is designed primarily for smartphones and tablets, however the open and customizable nature of the operating system allows it to be used on other electronics, including laptops and netbooks, smartbooks, ebook readers, and smart TVs (Google TV). It is considered the fastest growing mobile platform in the world used by more than 300 million devices.
TagLikeMe Corp. expects to roll-out individual versions of TagLikeMe for mobile platforms over the next 90 days, kicking off with the first introduction on the Apple's iOS platform followed by the Google Android and Windows 8 after its introduction.
