RM Studio 5.0 Mustang Available Now
Today RM Studio team has released the newest version of our efficient and effective risk management software, v5.0 Mustang. Yes, we chose the name because of the obvious connection to the popular muscle car brand, but also because the name is synonymous with words like fast, powerful, and respected. After all Ford did celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mustang last year, which represents a long standing respect and customer loyalty for a single brand. In today's fast-paced evolving world, brand loyalty is often hard to gain and even harder to maintain over long periods of time.

Opportunities to promote employment in Europe
The annual European Business Summit was held in Brussels last week. There, the main leaders of the economy and the European Union, gathered to discuss the future. The subject of the meeting this time was to find ways to strengthen the European economy and create economic growth by exploring the many opportunities that are available. Svana Helen Björnsdóttir, chairman of the Federation of Icelandic industries, was involved in discussions regarding intellectual property with Philippe Lambrecht, CEO of SA in Belgium, Alexander von Gabain, president of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology and Margot Fröhlinger, Director of the European Patent Organization.
Svana talked about the importance of patents and said that the total number of patents was one type of measure of the performance achieved by innovation. She noted that many claim that software patents should not be justified even though it is important for the software industry, as well as other industries, to safeguard investments in innovation. She also said that a strong software industry and information technology was required in order to advance and explore new opportunities in the European economy. “We all agree on creating new jobs and infuse new life into the economy where growth is too small. We need to act quickly, create new solutions and opportunities for young people as well as to ensure good working conditions for companies and provide them with predictability in the work environment.”
Svana said that information technology is changing very rapidly, but research and development would be the foundation for the success of companies within this industry.
“In order for European nations to take advantage of the opportunities and benefits that information technology can bring us, we must ensure that robust software industry can grow and thrive in Europe,” said Svana and stressed the necessity that innovation would be increased in information secvurity. Among those who took part in the European Business Summit were Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, and Herman Van Rompuy President of the European Council.
The European Business Summit was held for the eleventh time in Brussel and was attended by about two thousand managers. Organizers of the summit were as before the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium in Belgium and BUSINESSEUROPE.
