According to a report released by the Linux Foundation today, Intel tops the list of companies contributing to the Linux Kernel from Sept 2013 through Jan 2015. Of the 239 companies that made submissions to the open source project, Intel made 10.5% of the total contributions. Additionally, Intel has been the most active in introducing new developers to the project. Linux powers 98% of the world’s super computers, most of the servers powering the Internet, the majority of financial trades worldwide and tens of millions of Android mobile phones and consumer devices. The Linux Kernel is the foundation for software running on Linux systems and Intel’s contributions are part of the work done by the Intel Open Source Technology Center in the Software and Services Group.

Intel IT has published its annual performance report in the Intel IT Business Review, which spotlights Intel IT’s progress in driving improved productivity, efficiency, time to market and profitability. Notably, the report explains how in 2014 Intel used business intelligence and analytic tools to increase revenue by $350 million. A sales and marketing analytics engine delivered roughly 75 million in new revenue, while a pilot to reduce product test time netted more than 13 million. The biggest boost, over $250 million, came from integrating multiple data sources into a decision support system to maximize revenue by optimizing supply and demand. “What it really comes down to for any company is framing that business problem so that you answer the right questions and then marry previously unused or new data to solve that problem,” commented Intel CIO Kim Stevenson in a related podcast.

In honor of the one year anniversary of the Administration's Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (CSF), both NIST and the White House will be hosting events at Stanford University where Intel has been invited to speak. On February 13, Renee James, president of Intel, will participate in the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection panel led by Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker.

This Valentine's Day, give a gift that will endure – an Intel-powered tablet. Prices start at $99 for these devices that offer amazing graphics, ultra-fast web browsing and the best new apps. Check out www.intel.com to learn more.

 

Intel publishes the first use case of the Administration's Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (CSF) by releasing the "Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) in Action: An Intel Use Case," a white paper that documents our findings. You can read about it here. Now that we have tested the framework ourselves, we can say that it provides clear and demonstrable benefits and extends our cybersecurity conversation to our senior executives – even in such a diversified organization as Intel. Given that the CSF focuses on risk management rather than compliance, we believe it has the potential to help transform cybersecurity on a global scale and accelerate cybersecurity across the compute continuum.

The Intel-powered Jolla tablet, the world’s first crowdsourced tablet project, will be available for a new phase of crowdsourcing for consumers to contribute. This new phase will help lower the cost of the tablets and help introduce more options to the Jolla tablet series. For example, the 64GB option will be introduced in addition to the 32GB that was launched in the first phase. The tablet reached its first phase of crowdsourcing goal within two hours when it was announced last November. In fact, it raised over US$1.8 million, five times of its original target, in the first 21 days. The Jolla tablet is based on the Intel® Atom™ processor 3700 Series, runs on the company’s independent operating system Sailfish OS, and provides a smooth multitasking experience with Android application compatibility. The Jolla Tablet is available starting at US$219, and it is expected to ship in second quarter of 2015.

Responding to the needs of a more mobile and distributed workforce, the 14 nm 5th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, featuring Intel® Pro Wireless Display and Intel® Wireless Docking technologies, along with security capabilities, will allow small, medium and large companies to enable a better way to work by encouraging more creativity and collaboration among workers, improving employee and organizational productivity in a secure way.
