George Moore, a US-based specialist in the field of data/precision analytics, has been announced as the technology Start-up Ambassador for the US, as part of its strategy to promote Ireland and to encourage overseas entrepreneurs to locate their start-up businesses in Ireland. This follows on from earlier appointments of Start-Up Ambassadors for key markets in the UK, China and Middle East, and for the life sciences sector in the US.
Mr Moore is a pioneer in the development of real time analytics and information technology for business applications, with many years experience in the region. He has particular expertise in the area of consumer scoring technologies for real time applications in the telecom, media, and retail industries. He will now bring this vast experience to working closely with Enterprise-Ireland to highlight Ireland and what it has to offer for technology start-ups.
This announcement marks the fifth international start-up ambassador appointed by Enterprise Ireland over the past year. It follows on the appointment of Dylan Collins for the UK market, Paul Kenny for the Middle East, Liam Casey for the Greater China Region, and Dr Art Rosenthal as Life Sciences Start-up Ambassador for the US.
The announcement follows on the launch late last year of a dedicated €10 million International Start-Up Fund to target investor ready overseas entrepreneurs to start their business inIreland. Administered by Enterprise Ireland, the fund is open to company promoters anywhere in the world, but is targeted particularly at the Irish Diaspora, international expatriates, the ‘New Diaspora’ (people from overseas who have previously worked or studied in Ireland), as well as serial and mobile entrepreneurs.
Lorcan O’Sullivan, Manager of Enterprise Ireland’s Overseas Entrepreneurship Department, said: ‘We are delighted to have a high profile figure such as George Moore as a US Ambassador for Enterprise Ireland’s international start-ups programme. George has not only experience of running large multinational operations, he has also extensive knowledge of start-ups as an investor. An increasing number of mobile international entrepreneurs are coming to Ireland as their location of choice to start a new business. The volume of enquiries is double that of last year and this is certainly encouraging for us. It is a tremendous boost to have a person of the calibre of George Moore, with his extensive experience and business networks and based locally in the US, who can support this programme and share his experience with other US entrepreneurs looking to start up in Ireland’.
George Moore added:
‘No one ever started a large company! All companies including such Fortune 500 companies as HP, Intel, Microsoft and Google were start-ups and all began as an idea with smart people, experienced advisors, luck, and access to capital. I look forward to working with Enterprise Ireland to drive entrepreneurial enterprises to Ireland’.

Headway Software Releases Structure101 & Restructure101 for Microsoft .NET Developers
The Structure101 product set used by thousands of Java and C/C++ developers to disentangle, define, and enforce their software architecture is now available for Microsoft Visual Studio developers.
Microsoft WPC, Los Angeles, CA, July 12, 2011
Headway Software today announced the General Availability release of the full family of Structure101 development tools for the Microsoft .NET platform. The tools that have been available to Java and C/C++ developers for over 4 years have been adapted by the company so that Visual Studio development teams can now also disentangle, define and enforce their software architecture.
Restructure101 for .NET is designed to allow software architects delve into structural problems and to explore solutions by directly manipulating a model of the codebase.
Structure101 for .NET supports the creation of a visual architecture specification that can be communicated to the team through a Visual Studio plug-in, which also raises an error when the developer makes a change to the code that violates the dependency rules.
Structure101 Build for .NET guarantees the integrity of the architecture at build time.
“This move is in response to requests from our existing customer base”, said Headways CEO Chris Chedgey, “the number and size of Microsoft .NET projects within ‘Java shops’ is increasing, and those teams are looking for the same architectural control enjoyed by their Java colleagues across the corridor”.
iQuate Announces iQSonar for Microsoft
Advanced technology to help Microsoft LARs leverage SAM incentive program
Microsoft World Partner Conference, Los Angeles, CA, July 11, 2011— Today, iQuate announced availability of iQSonar for Microsoft. iQSonar’s powerful discovery platform is focused on Data Center and Server technologies and is configured to give Microsoft customers and partners detailed and accurate information about their Microsoft products and the environment on which they are installed.
This information is critical to the management and control of Microsoft deployments by providing a verifiably accurate basis for effective Software Asset Management (SAM) programs.
“Microsoft has been promoting the benefits of effective Software Asset Management to its customers for several years” commented Pat Durkin, iQuate CEO. “Now with the imminent partner SAM Services incentive program aimed at Large Account Resellers (LARs), they are actively promoting the benefits of SAM to their most important resellers. The biggest risk to customers and most significant area of reward for partners is in the complex data center environment which accounts for approximately 80% of enterprise software budgets. Unfortunately, SAM programs have traditionally not extended successfully into this environment because of the underlying complexity and this has left customers exposed to risk, with vendors and their partners missing out on valuable revenue opportunities. Now iQSonar gives customers and partners the ability to deliver effective SAM across the data center.”
