Mark Starcher, president of Scanmark LTD, is teaching a series of classes on secure web development for the University of Maryland University System. The online classes, which begin in June, will focus on secure code development and testing for web applications.
The use of ‘air fiber’ (high-speed directed wifi) has allowed West Liberty University to upgrade and expand internet connectivity on its Main and Highlands campuses. The air fiber system uses high gain antennas in lieu of copper or fiber connections and ties into the existing Open Mesh network currently being used.
Scanmark is currently working with two government client to provide Mesh network wifi access to learning facilities and government offices where traditional wired internet access is restricted. The goal is to extend or throw current bandwidth already being used by an entity to areas that would benefit from wifi access. Among other services, Scanmark is currently exploring the use of OpenMesh appliances.
Scanmark LTD is working with West Liberty University to move public facing applications to cloud-based platforms. The University has successfully migrated its Learning Management System to the cloud and is examining other functions that may lend themselves to a multi-tenancy environment.
Scanmark LTD is currently working with the West Virginia Supreme Court in organizing and indexing a large collection of circuit court-related material for use in the recently announced West Virginia eFiling program — a pilot program under which attorneys will be able to file legal actions electronically. The pilot, scheduled to last through 2015, will provide end users electronic access to court-related documents.
The West Virginia Municipal Bond commission has retained Scanmark LTD to advise and consult on the installation of new bond tracking management software. The software, to be installed over the next three months, replaces a main frame application that has been used by the Commission since the early 1980s.
The West Virginia State Bar is using a new membership management program developed by Scanmark LTD based upon the CiviCRM framework. The application, which was developed over the past year, went live in June and provides payment and membership updating services.
Scanmark announces TaxDay, a Flipboard publication that provides access to tax-related materials in a magazine format. The service includes access to Court and IRS documents and also provides a convenient way to review tax-related stories in other publications. For further information, navigate your mobile device (IPhone, IPad or Android-based) to Flipboard.com and search for “TaxDay”.
Scanmark LTD was invited to the az16 conference “Software Eats DC” held on May 9. The conference features start up ventures that provide a variety of services ranging from cybersecurity/malware detection to cloud computing, big data solutions and mobile access to information.
Mark Starcher will be making two presentations at the annual Media Art and Digital Festival on April 19. Starcher will review the use of cloud computing resources in digital media creation and examine the growing use of ‘underground tv’ applications and their use.
