Enterprise content integration

Enterprise content integration is a marketing buzzword for middleware software technology used within large organizations, that connects together various types of computer systems that manage documents and digital content. ECI systems work in tandem with other technologies such as enterprise content management, document management and records management, it takes a decentralized approach. ECI implementations exist on a tier above the organization’s existing software and provide wide-ranging search and access functions. ECI systems, in particular, Unified Information Access systems in general, attempt to address the growing trend of the recognition that so-called “unstructured content,” such as a series of documents, can be important and can contribute to business development, their other important function lies in their ability to increase the efficiency which with organizations can retrieve data by providing a single channel to access a wide variety of storage locations. Enterprise content integration aims to answer a number of needs in today's organizations: Migrating content from one system to another Synchronizing part or all the content between two or more content repositories Searching for documents across all content repositories Offering a single point of access to all documents and content of the organization Publishing or pushing this content to other systems ECI functions through the use of a metadata catalog that contains records regarding data throughout the enterprise in order to enable users to seek, browse and retrieve the necessary information.

ECI metadata catalogs are able to collect data from a wide array of sources, including digital asset management systems and web servers, individual users’ PCs. Vendors sometimes refer to this sort of decentralized content management as a virtual repository or a virtual file system. In addition to gathering data for the metadata catalog, some ECI systems are able to connect to the resources offered by a computer system directly through an interface such as an API; these types of connections are referred to as adapters, connectors, or content bridges by ECI vendors. ECI systems can offer automated aggregation and distribution of indexed content through administrator-configurable channels, which allows flexible reporting and powerful analytic capabilities across a wide array of data sources. ECI administrators can design the system by specifying rules for the way indexed content should be packaged as well as how and to whom the content should be delivered. To accomplish these goals, some ECI systems are able to integrate with other computer systems such as publishing systems and format converters through web service interfaces.

A number of vendors have provided ECI solutions through the history of the technology. One of the first was Context Media. Venetica Corporation, founded in 1993 pioneered ECI solutions with its flagship VeniceBridge product. Venetica was acquired in 2004 by IBM and its ECI technology is now sold as IBM Content Integrator, which provides out-of-the-box connectors for the industry's most popular content management systems, as well as several features for federation and developer services. Agari Mediaware was another company among those in the first wave of ECI solution providers. However, the company filed for bankruptcy in July 2003; this was due to the poor market reception of the product. Other vendors of ECI systems include Day Software, EntropySoft, SeeUnity, all of which offer a variety of connectors to various content management systems. A number of search-based applications vendors sell ECI systems, such as Aspire, CloudView, Lookeen Server, Documentum

Additional grades were added in years, until 1990 when the first eighth grade class graduated. At one time in the 1950s, student transfers from St. Andrew's to the public schools of the Amarillo Independent School District were restricted due to a school district regulation against accepting private school transfer credits for students, taught by a first-grade teacher over 65 years old.

By the 1980s the school purchased additional property for a new facility to accommodate its growing enrollment. A new main building was completed in 1985, including classrooms, a library, a gymnasium, a computer lab, a cafeteria, other special purpose rooms. A second new building, named the Margaret Teel Building, opened in 1999. An expansion completed in January 2008 added more classrooms, an assembly hall, a new library dedicated to the middle school grades, a commons area, areas for visual arts and music. Ron Ferguson became the headmaster in August 2004 replacing Scott Kimball. By the time students graduate from the 8th Grade they have accumulated at least five high school credits. Students at St. Andrews do not take the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, required by all public schools in Texas but they do take the Stanford Achievement Test and the Otis-Lennon Test. In October 2010, the National Junior Honor Society inducted 18 seventh-grade and eighth-grade students into the society.

To be induced the students must have maintained a 95 average in all subjects and have demonstrated leadership, character and service. St. Andrew’s is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools and the National Association of Episcopal Schools. St. Andrew's is accredited by the Southwest Association of Episcopal Schools, an organization approved by Texas Private School Accreditation Commission, recognized by the Texas Commissioner of Education; the National Middle School Science Bowl is a middle school academic competition held in the United States.

St. Andrew's has won regional competitions to advance to the national science bowl in 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, has placed well for several years in the national competitions.

In 2005, a St. Andrews team placed second overall in the national competition. St. Andrew's interscholastic teams compete against other junior-high-age teams in the High Plains Christian Athletic Association in football, basketball and track; the school terminated the employment of its athletic director, who served as volleyball coach, in December 2010 after allegations of improper behavior, but expected to continue its sports program without interruption.

1958 Asian Games medal table

The 1958 Asian Games known as the Third Asian Games, was a multi-sport event held in Tokyo, from 24 May to 1 June 1958. A record total of 1,820 athletes representing 20 Asian National Olympic Committees participated in 13 sports divided into 97 events; the tradition of the torch relay was introduced for the first time in the Asian Games, the Games cauldron was ignited by the first Japanese Olympic gold medallist and the first Asian Olympic champion in an individual event, Mikio Oda. Athletes from 16 nations earned medals at the Games, athletes from 11 of these nations won at least one gold medal. Indian national record holder in 200– and 400 metres, Milkha Singh, won gold medals in both the events and set a new Asian Games record in 400 metres. 1956 Melbourne Olympics silver medallist in 400– and 1500 metres freestyle events, Tsuyoshi Yamanaka, won gold medals in these two events. The Japanese 4×100 metres medley relay team of Keiji Hase, Masaru Furukawa, Manabu Koga and Takashi Ishimoto won the gold medal with a time of 4:17.2 and broke the world record.

A total of 350 medals were awarded. Only the Republic of China managed to improve its position in the medal table compared to the 1954 Asian Games; the host nation, topped the medal table for the third consecutive time in the history of the Games, having collected 60% of the total gold medals. Competitors from the host of the 1954 Games, the Philippines, won 48 medals and helped their nation to be seated at the second place on overall medal tally. South Korean athletes improved their total medal count by eight from 1954, earning third spot on the table; the ranking in this table is consistent with International Olympic Committee convention in its published medal tables. By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals; the number of silver medals is taken into consideration next, followed by the number of bronze medals. If nations are still tied, equal ranking is given; the total number of bronze medals is greater than the total number of gold or silver medals because two bronze medals were awarded per event in three sports: boxing, table tennis and tennis.
