Microsoft has decided to take its popular .NET framework cross-platform to Linux and the Macintosh, and to expand on its moves to open-source the .NET technology.

Microsoft announced these and other moves with its core Visual Studio toolset. It also introduced new capabilities for Visual Studio Online, Windows Azure and more at the Microsoft Connect event in New York City on Nov. 12. In addition to taking .NET cross-platform and open-sourcing the technology, Microsoft is providing a new free version of Visual Studio.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, home of the U.S. Weather Service, was recently breached by hackers. The breach has now been contained.

NOAA spokesperson Scott Smullen stated that, in recent weeks, four NOAA Websites were compromised by an Internet-sourced attack. The NOAA statement did not specify who might be behind the attack. A Washington Post report pointed fingers at hackers from China.

Apple is developing a full-time sales effort to boost sales of its computer hardware and services to enterprise business users as the company pushes to expand its reach in wider markets. The expansion into deeper business-computing sales comes on the heels of other recent business-related moves by Apple, including the partnership deal announced in July between Apple and IBM that matches up Apple's devices with IBM's global sales and support services.

SAP is rolling out a set of applications designed to enable businesses to take advantage of the massive amounts of data being collected by sensors and a variety of devices connected to the Internet of things. The new IoT applications—which focus on maintenance, logistics and manufacturing—will be available in a software-as-a-service environment that will run on SAP's HANA Cloud platform.

These new apps cover an expanded number of data sources—including a broad array of sensors and wearable devices—and can help bring analytic and application processing capabilities out to many of the devices themselves, according to David Parker, SAP's global vice president for big data and IoT.
