Several sources reported this week that Microsoft is working on a browser-based edition of its cloud gaming service Project xCloud. Business Insider reported that Xbox chief Phil Spencer told Microsoft employees at a meeting Wednesday that the company will pursue a “direct browser-based solution” for bringing the Xbox Game Pass to Apple’s family of devices.

If this were to work similarly to features on other services such as Google Stadia, it would allow Game Pass subscribers to connect to xCloud’s servers on an Apple device via its web browser, rather than launching any kind of discreet individual app. It would work identically to how one logs into any other streaming service, such as Netflix or Hulu, in a browser window.

EU research project on cyber security

By iwano@_84

The EU research project VALU3S aims to reduce the development effort of automated systems with regard to security, cyber-security and privacy requirements. To this end, 41 partners from 10 countries are working together. Over the next three years, LieberLieber Software will mainly contribute its industrial experience and knowledge of modelling and cyber-security to the project.

Vienna – As in the IT sector as a whole, the effort required to develop security and data protection concepts for automated systems is growing considerably. The VALU3S project focuses on the acceleration of verification and validation (V&V) throughout the development cycle. Verification is the testing of a component with regard to its compliance with the required characteristics. The validation carried out in the next step examines whether the defined usage objectives are actually met in a practical experiment. For this purpose, 13 use cases have been defined in the project, which will be carried

Senators reject controversial medical gadgets project

By iwano@_84

Senators have rejected the damming report on medical kits project and pushed for radical amendments to name, shame and force to step aside state officers who bungled the programme.

Some 27 lawmakers voted against the report that was filed by ad hoc committee after investigating the medical equipment programme for a year.

Only two senators voted for the report.

While terming the report generic and a letter of lamentations, the lawmakers want specific officers indicted and companies adversely mentioned in the report barred from doing business in Kenya.

“This report looks like a letter of lamentation because the way recommendations have been done is based on observing issues. It is like shooting the blanks,” Nandi senator Samson Cherargei said.

Charargei cited the General Electric East Africa, which was awarded a Sh28 billion contract, whose directors failed to appear before the committee, but was not indicted in the report.

“This was

Beleaguered unemployment compensation computer modernization project likely to be delayed once again

By iwano@_84

Pennsylvania’s effort to modernize its unemployment compensation benefits system continues to be a fiasco with the latest obstacle being related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A new computer-based benefits delivery system intended to be more user friendly that would replace a nearly half-century-old mainframe computer system was expected to be ready to go live on Oct. 5.

That date is now up in air.

Members of House Labor & Industry Committee met on Thursday with officials from the state Department of Labor & Industry as well as members of a legislative-appointed advisory committee established to monitor the project to get an update on the project’s status.

Advisory committee members Geoff Moomaw and Julia Simon-Mishel both said they foresee trouble ahead if the department were to make the switch to the new system next month and recommended against that. Throughout the discussion, it was made clear that labor & industry staff has

CMM and Project Tracking and Oversight

By iwano@_84

The goal of the Software Project Tracking and Oversight Key Process Area (KPA) is to provide sufficient insight into project performance so that the project manager can detect variances between performance and the plan and take preventive or corrective action. This KPA influences all PMBOK knowledge areas and is most closely associated with the Monitoring and Controlling group of processes. As with the other KPAs Software Project Tracking and Oversight is organized into goals, commitments, abilities, activities, measurements, and verifications.


The goals of this KPA relate to and support project oversight and corrective actions. The goals are that results are tracked against project plans, that corrective actions are taken when there is a variance between planned results and actual results, and that corrective actions that change the project plan are agreed to by the affected groups. The abilities and activities all support the achievement of these goals.
