Canam Software Labs - Controlling
XML and JSON Messages with Thunder
uses a model-driven approach for generating COBOL, C and Java
code for parsing and creating XML and JSON messages.
In addition to ease of use and high performance,
another key advantage of Thunder is that it enables developers
to control how messages are processed. Repeating
structures can be configured, optional nodes can be suppressed
and content can be formatted. To see how Thunder enables
developers to control the processing of XML and JSON messages

XYPRO - The 100 | Our Employees are as
Important as our Customers
The 100 | Our Employees are as
Important as our Customers
When reflecting on XYPRO’s longevity and success (we recently
welcomed our 100th employee and have celebrated many years of
consistent gains), we often assess whether we’re continuing to
do the things that got us here, even as we grow. Why do our
customers continue to buy from us? What differentiates us from
our competition? Do we have our finger on the pulse of the
industry? Are we innovating? Maybe they like our sales team, or
our professional services rep that helped them with the
installation. Maybe they had an excellent experience with our
customer support team. Maybe it’s some or all of these things.
At XYPRO, we cultivate relationships with our clients for years.
Even decades. In addition to investing in our software,
they’re also investing in us. People buy from people and we
like being the ones you want to work with. The same is true
for the people that work here.
What does it take to become a company that workers want to be
part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good
perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of
humor, and leadership that makes the two work together.
We recognize that a willingness to try new things in both
technology and mindful corporate culture engages employees and
attracts the type of open minded, hard-working, forward thinking
employees we want on our team. XYPRO endeavors to let our core values guide
our decisions and help motivate. Many XYPRO programs are
specifically put in place to achieve an environment in which the
customer experience is paramount, employees feel valued and want
to stay and contribute their best, long term.
XYPRO is one of the honorees of Inc.
Magazine’s Best Places to Work 2017.
As part of a prominent inc.comfeature,
the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive
measurement of private American companies who have created
exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee
engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of
applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies and
we were one of those companies!
At XYPRO, we’re not here to mark the time between 8 and 5. Our
customers deserve our best effort, as coworkers we deserve each
other’s best efforts and in a company of our size, everyone
plays a part in the success. XYPRO Leadership is responsible
for the example we set and the appreciation we show our team &
our customers. We take that responsibility seriously. It’s
always about more than just business.
Going beyond the sale
It is often said “people do business with people the like” but
more importantly, people do business with people they trust.
“Like” is a byproduct of that trust.
At XYPRO we understand that what we do today, matters today. It
also matters tomorrow, next month, next year and even next
decade. Like our customers, XYPRO is in business for the long
haul and in a niche, global market with incremental, yet
consistent growth, our honesty, integrity, and trust are just as
important to our customers as are quality, innovation and our
best of breed products and services.
Whenever a decision is made to purchase a XYPRO product or
service, whether for the first time or for the 21st time, the
people our customers are most directly engaged with are our
Sales Team. For this reason we strive to make sure our sales
team are the right fit for the role and don’t just produce the
Our sales team is made up of sales professionals with extensive
backgrounds in enterprise level sales and service, NonStop
security fundamentals and an underlying compassion for the needs
of our customers. “Sales” and “professionalism” aren’t always
combined in the same sentence or in context with each other, but
the XYPRO sales team is different.
Our sales and sales-support team is spread across the globe;
USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, Germany, Mexico, the UK and
Argentina. They are as close to you, our customers, as they can
be and are driven to serve.
It takes a unique individual to be a XYPRO salesperson. You will
most often see our sales team at your place of work, in your
home city or at a trade event in another city. There can be a
sense of glamour associated with the life of a travelling
salesperson and to some level, that may be true yet the reality
is that your place of work, your home city or the city you are
in for a trade event is rarely, if ever, their place of work or
their home city, and they do this day in and day out. They
understand this is their profession and like all other
professions, they have a purpose and are needed. They too
understand that they are an integral part to XYPRO’s success and
that the corporate culture that XYPRO has fostered over the last
35 years is also the culture they enjoy and are part of,
regardless of where they are in the world. Our primary
intention is to serve our customers in the best way possible and
in doing so, that culture also serves to create one of the best
working environments anyone could hope for.
Innovating for the future
“The only thing constant is change”
The allure of innovation is what drives a lot of people.
Everyone wants to be part of the next big thing.
However, change for the sake of change doesn’t always equal
progress. Innovation in most cases is a diminutive experience
requiring multiple iterations and a lot of time and patience to
execute an idea to move it forward, but there is no room for
complacency. To be successful, one must find the balance
between innovating and delivering genuine value to the customer.
This is ultimately what technology companies are after.
At XYPRO, we are not afraid of change. Leveraging the technology
we have built over the last three decades has allowed us to
identify new opportunities to innovate while staying true to our
roots. We felt the NonStop should benefit from the modern
technology available to other platforms. This strategy has
allowed our customers to take advantage of the existing XYGATE
product suite as well as benefit from the exciting new
technologies we are investing in: Security Intelligence,
machine learning, blockchain, modernization and much more.
One of our largest projects to date is XYGATE SecurityOne (XS1),
which is a security analytics solution. Data is what drives
everything; from business decisions to where to eat lunch.
Security is no different. We realized that the existing XYGATE
product suite supplies a gold mine of security data that can be
used for contemporary purposes. With XS1, we took a
nontraditional approach toward development and it has paid off.
Embracing Agile Development methodologies allowed our teams to
quickly and continuously deliver deployable product. Combine
that with a web enablement framework, modern programming
languages and some of the newest technology available and we’re
cooking with gas! Innovating in this manner also allowed us to
attract top tier talent to work on XS1 ensuring high caliber
execution. As part of the process, we brought in seasoned User
Experience Developers, Machine Learning Scientists and other
senior development resources. This all culminated into the most
modern and easy to use security solution for the HPE NonStop
Our product development and innovation efforts don’t stop there.
We unflinchingly look forward to identify where our research and
development investments should be made to best serve our
customers. This commitment has led us to new areas that will
provide even greater value and security to NonStop customers and
integrating the NonStop with the rest of the enterprise.
Inspiring the next generation of NonStop users
In the continuing effort to keep the HPE NonStop server modern
and “young”, XYPRO has a proven effective internship program
where students from local universities get to participate and
grow their skills in different areas of a software development
company. Being an intern at XYPRO means participating in real
projects, building sophisticated security solutions for mission
critical operations and solving real problems for real
customers. The year-round internship program hosts between 10
and 15 interns at any given point in time.
Some of our 2017 Interns
XYPRO 2017 Spring Graduates
Through this ongoing internal education and mentorship program
as well as external education opportunities, our young engineers
learn the principles of information security, the NonStop server
and how it fits into today’s global economy.
XYPRO’s talent recruitment program means some interns stay on
with us as part-time or full-time employees and genuinely
contribute with new ideas and modern approaches to research
projects, modernization of legacy technology and expansion of
our current suite of security solutions. Since the establishment
of the internship program in 2011, XYPRO has converted over a
dozen interns to employees in the areas of IT, systems
administration, customer support, software development, QA,
Business Analysis, and Project Management.
Those that end up moving on to other ventures, do so with our
best wishes, an understanding of information security, NonStop
concepts and principles and a genuine appreciation for the
unique capabilities of the platform. https://www.xypro.com/xypro-technology/time-xypro-got-today/
In this issue of the Connection Magazine highlighting “The Best
of NonStop”, we’re proud to discuss our clients and our team
members. When one describes their ideal professional situation,
it is a privilege to work for and with those we can honestly say
are simply the best.
There are some really exciting times up ahead – so stay tuned!

BLEND … AND SOLUTION … IS OMNIPAYMENTS!
the master of his very own blend. OmniPayments and its CEO, Yash
Kapadia, sponsored a popular
wine-making competition at the NonStop Technical Boot Camp, held
this year at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport from 12
November to 15 November. Conference attendees, now newly minted
wine aficionados, were grouped into teams and tasked with the
goal of creating the best blend by mixing a variety of red
wines. The winning blend, named after OmniPayments, was bottled
that same night; and attendees each were given a bottle plus an
OmniPayments wine sleeve for safe transport. As competition
sponsor and therefore honorary Chief Sommelier, Yash walked away
with a few extra bottles.
OmniPayments’ presence was apparent in other ways at Boot Camp.
In addition to being the exclusive sponsor of the Boot Camp’s
wine competition, we were a Diamond Sponsor and exhibitor; and
our staff, customer representatives, and HPE introduced
OmniPayments’ popular solutions via five well-attended sessions.
Among the five were three case studies from Banco Agrario de
Colombia; Banco de Crédito e
Inversiones (BCI), a leading bank in Chile; and CCA,
a prominent ACH (automated
clearing house) processor in Chile.
THE OMNIPAYMENTS STANDALONE SWITCH
The OmniPayments Financial
Transaction Switch is
deployed on NonStop for
the highest availability and offers all the requisite
functionality to manage credit/debit-card transactions. It
manages multiple devices, hosts application interfaces, and
interoperates with third-party products or other systems if
required. OmniPayments easily expands to provide additional
functionality when needed and supplies complete security
functions for every financial transaction handled, including
encryption-at-rest and encryption-in-flight. Our Switch supports
ATMs, POS systems, and both Web and mobile applications.
24x7, OmniPayments can be installed as a complete,
off-the-shelf solution or can be enhanced with
customer-requested modifications and features to improve
cost-effectiveness, efficiency, and risk mitigation. It will
survive any single fault, requires no downtime for upgrades or
maintenance, and supports a range of disaster-recovery
solutions. We also offer separately sold microservices that
connect seamlessly to your other systems and solutions.
OmniPayments’ open architecture
and modular design permits gradual implementation for smooth
migration from existing payments infrastructures. The
OmniPayments pricing model for its standalone system is based on
a one-time software license instead of on transaction volume.
Our customers experience tremendous cost savings.

Reflections on the
2017 NonStop Technical Bootcamp
By Glenn Garrahan, Director HPE Business,
Bootcamp in the books……..
Along with many
other HPE NonStop partners, Tributary Systems attended what
proved to be a very successful event, this year at the new San
Francisco Airport Hyatt Regency venue.
First and foremost,
we here at Tributary Systems would like to thank all the folks
who work so hard year after year to put on this symposium; it’s
certainly worth the effort. We’re pleased over the continued
amount of interest in the industry for NonStop, the increased
customer presence this year was obvious, this is of the utmost
importance to the continuation of the NonStop platform.
The backing of the
greater HPE for NonStop was clear, we’re very encouraged by the
additional investment in new versions of the L-Series servers,
most especially the Virtual/Converged (and I’ll call it)
appliance. The future looks outstanding…………and Tributary
Systems, plus other HPE NonStop Partners, customers, and HPE
Team Members, will be back in Burlingame next November!
Data Protection for HPE NonStop
At the Tributary System’s
presentation on Day 2, CEO Shawn Sabanayagam posed an
interesting question to those gathered:
Is there any NonStop
customer who would not appreciate saving 40% or more in data
backup and archive costs while simultaneously increasing data
security, availability and backup/restore performance?
The short answer was “Of
Shawn then continued by
detailing Tributary’s new, low cost, highly secure and highly
scalable data backup, archival, and DR solution for NonStop.
Using IBM’s Cloud Object Storage with Erasure Coding and
Tributary Systems’ proven Storage Director, this innovation
simplifies backup operations while reducing storage and archival

Please click the
following link to complete a quick survey of 17 questions, this

Portsmouth Graduates and
Tandemworld appreciate your assistance.
Question #1: There are 39
Question #1: There are 39 Time Zones. How
Many Can a Single NonStop System Support?
Answer: All of Them with TANDsoft’s OPTA2000!
Question #2: How Many Times Must the System Clock be Changed?
Answer: Never with TANDsoft’s OPTA2000!
You read it correctly. Currently, there exist 39 time zones (not
24) in the world. With TANDsoft’s OPTA2000™, a single HPE
NonStop server can host thousands of applications on all of
those time zones, with each application having its own virtual
system clock. As more NonStop customers consolidate their
physical data centers into the smaller footprint of the powerful
NonStop X, OPTA2000 grows increasingly valuable by allowing
applications to operate in local dates and times, independent of
the current physical locations or time zones of their respective
data centers. There is no need to ever change the server’s
One System Clock. Multiple Current Times. Multiple Time Zones.
Here is one example. A global manufacturer uses OPTA2000 to
consolidate all of its disaster-recovery systems into one
U.S.-based data center. The manufacturer’s backup systems are
flexible and can be assigned dynamically to take over the
processing of one or more failed systems anywhere in the world.
By using time-zone simulation, the backup of a failed
application can be given an operating environment that has the
same time zone as the failed application. In this way, only a
few backup systems are needed to protect many systems deployed
TANDsoft’s OPTA2000 is a virtual clock- and time zone simulator
that allows existing backup, test, development, and production
systems to support worldwide consolidated applications. It is
user-friendly, easily installed, cost-effective, and requires no
application modifications. OPTA2000 provides date & time and
time-zone simulation for all HPE NonStop Guardian and OSS
applications and data bases, with no code changes. Date & time
simulation allows organizations to "time travel" their
applications in the future or past to test all date & time
sensitive logic, eliminating the need to manually change the
system clock. Time-zone simulation allows applications to
operate in any virtual time zone on a single NonStop server.
OPTA2000 is the only NonStop solution available for such
time-critical simulation. It is one of TANDsoft most popular
products and represents TANDsoft’s expertise in interception
● Date and time testing with future time, past time and frozen
● Time test critical applications - Pensions, Leap Year, Billing
Cycles, Policies, Daylight Saving, Future Dates, End of
● Time-sensitive applications operate with virtual time zones in
consolidated data center
● Applications sitting on a server in one time zone can
accurately timestamp local transactions generated outside that
● Applications run in “user” time, not “system” time, without
interrupting normal system operation
● No need to ever change the system clock. Multiple virtual
system clocks on a single NonStop server
● All Nonstop Guardian and OSS programs, programming languages
and data bases (Enscribe, SQL/MP, SQL/MX) are supported
● Accommodates Daylight Saving Time (DST) transition tables
● Requires no application source-code modifications, of
particular importance when the source code is unavailable.
● Supports in-house, HPE, and major third-party solutions, even
those where source code is unavailable
● Available for NonStop X and all other NonStop servers.
In addition to OPTA2000, TANDsoft solutions include FileSync for
automatic file synchronization, replication, and data
deduplication; Sensitive Data Intercept (SDI) for protecting and
masking sensitive data-at-rest in Enscribe, SQL/MP, and SQL/MX
databases; the OPTA suite of interception and trace utilities
(OPTA-Trace Online Process Tracer and Analyzer, Recycle Bin, Low
Pin Optimizer, and EMS Alerts Online Startup and Termination
Capture Utility); Stack Monitor, which alerts developers to the
impending threat of a stack overflow; Command Stream Replicator,
which logs and automatically replicates TMF-audited/unaudited
FUP, SQL/MP and SQL/MX DDL structure and other environment
changes to target systems; AutoLib, which automatically loads a
user library or a DLL for executing processes; the
Enscribe-2-SQL and TMF-Audit Toolkits and the Enscribe-2-SQL
Data Replicator, all of which offer flexible, affordable
alternatives to more expensive conversion products or manual
conversion techniques; and E2S-Lite, which permits efficient,
low-cost Enscribe modifications without the need to change a
program’s source code.
TANDsoft exhibited in the Partner Pavilion at November’s NonStop
Technical Boot Camp. Our breakout session, “Identify and Protect
Your Sensitive Data with Seamless Interception,” is now
available for review at http://bit.ly/2Af9Bur. TANDsoft’s
Sensitive Data Intercept™ seamlessly intercepts HPE NonStop
database access calls, then works with HPE and third-party
security products to protect sensitive data-at-rest by
encrypting/decrypting data written to and from disk. Purchase
SDI directly from TANDsoft for your masking, auditing, or
logging needs. SDI masks sensitive data from unauthorized
parties, audits who or what is accessing sensitive data, and
logs the dates and times of access. Supports Enscribe, SQL/MP,
and SQL/MX. No program changes are required.
Source code unavailable? It’s not required either.

Boot Camp Blog
It was great to see
everyone at the NonStop Technical Boot Camp. Another great
turnout. We were very pleased to be able to meet with
several TANGO and LitePOS clients. One of the clients
explained how delighted they were not only with our TANGO
solution but the HPE NonStop that they are running it on. They
were new to NonStop hardware but are now completely convinced
that the reliability, stability and availability of the NonStop
is worth every penny.
Another one of our
clients at Boot Camp shared with us that they’ve been
benchmarking TPS rates and TANGO has tested out with TPS rates
that are triple what they expect to see in the future. He
commented that there is no further need for them to invest in
benchmark testing as the results clearly show the scalability of
TANGO for all their future growth.
Lusis would like to
thank everyone who stopped by the booth to meet with us, get
their passports stamped and schedule webinars. We look
forward to following up with everyone next week and beyond.
We have much to share with everyone
in the near future about a new Lusis AI business unit, our
support to clients for ISO 20022, API friendly microservices for
banks and much more.

in the news …
DataExpress representative, Susie Raye, reported; “I always go
to events like TBC with an open mind, ready for anything and
yes, it seemed to be larger than last year with a lot more
sessions – 92 of them so I was told.” Perhaps even more
important for DataExpress having products for both NonStop and
Open Platforms, said Raye, “While this was a Nonstop event, many
sessions were focused on where Nonstop fits into the new
ecosystem – Nonstop is just another piece of an interconnected
network. In other words, with as much focus as HPE is giving to
hybrid IT, it’s good to see just how well NonStop is playing in
this environment right now!”
When it came to
digging deep into NonStop, which after all is why this event is
called a Boot Camp and has so much focus on education, there
were numerous sessions surrounding security and automation …
“Security updates are always big, from new ciphers and new ANSI
standards to the need for tokenization of data,” added Raye,
“and for DataExpress it continues to be all about securely
managing the transfer of files.”
As in the past many
of the sessions focused on the OSS personality with a lot of
emphasis being placed on NonStop SQL/MX … On the other hand, at
this year’s TBC, and definitely catering to those attendees that
still depend on the Guardian personality along with Enscribe
file management, there was more attention given to them than
anyone can recall in past TBCs. “There was a lot more talk about
leveraging your Guardian functions, Pathway servers and using
new tools,” said Raye.
To read more of
what we observed at this year’s NonStop Technical Boot Camp,
just follow this link to our latest post,
NonStop Technical Boot Camp –
looking back at what impressed DataExpress!
If you have visited our NEWS BLOG pages on the DataExpress
website, you are aware of our new sales partnership with
comForte and even with the newness of the relationship, it was
good to interact with the folks who are at the customer and
prospect interface level.
