Microsoft, Nokia reunite after failed $ 7 billion smartphone deal

 Cache   

San Francisco: After a failed $7 billion acquisition of Nokia's smartphone business five years back, Microsoft has announced a strategic collaboration with the Finnish company to accelerate transformation and innovation across industries with Cloud, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT).

The new partnership brings together Microsoft cloud solutions and Nokia's expertise in mission-critical networking, to help enterprises and communications service providers (CSPs) transform their businesses.

"Bringing together Microsoft's expertise in intelligent cloud solutions and Nokia's strength in building business and mission-critical networks will unlock new connectivity and automation scenarios," Jason Zander, executive vice president, Microsoft Azure, said in a statement on Tuesday.

BT is the first global communications service provider to offer its enterprise customers a managed service that integrates Microsoft Azure cloud and Nokia SD-WAN solutions.

"Together, we will accelerate the digital transformation journey towards Industry 4.0, driving economic growth and productivity for both enterprises and service providers," said Kathrin Buvac, President of Nokia Enterprise and Chief Strategy Officer.

The Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (Nokia DAC) 5G-ready industrial-grade private wireless broadband solution with on-premise Azure elements will enable a wide variety of secure industrial automation solutions.

"For example, connected smart tools and machines on manufacturing floors that enable increased productivity, flexibility and safety for workers, or autonomous vehicles and robots in industrial environments that improve automation, efficiency and overall safety," said Microsoft.

Enterprises will be able to use Azure IoT Central and partner solutions for faster and easier enablement and implementation of their IoT applications together with Nokia's IoT connectivity solutions.

In 2014, Microsoft acquired Nokia's smartphone business. The company later quit the smartphone business, laying off thousands of employees.

In 2016, Microsoft sold the Nokia smartphone business for $350 million to HMD Global which now sells Nokia-branded phones.

Doja Cat's Music Video Beauty Looks Are Totally Extra - and We Love It

 Cache   

When you watch Doja Cat's music videos, one thing is clear: she doesn't care if her over-the-top beauty looks make you have a cow - mostly because she'll just dress like one. The singer and rapper's videos are a treasure trove of adventurous, colorful beauty moments that are almost as much fun as her lyrics.

Her best music video looks include mint-colored curls, bedazzled eye makeup, and neon orange nail polish, giving the viewer an overload of beauty inspiration. While they might seem cartoonish, hopefully they'll convince you to finally try out that bright lipstick that's been hiding at the back of your drawer.

Check out her very best music video beauty looks ahead.

Comment on What’s Behind the Fed’s Bailout of the Repo Market? by Glenn Hautly

 Cache   
All The current “bail out” of the “ENTERPRISES” (GSE, MBS and F&F) is costing taxpayers billions of dollars per day. Quote: 9/30/2019: FEDERAL HOUSING FINANCE AGENCY, director “The Enterprises are leveraged nearly 1,000-to-one, ensuring they would fail during an economic downturn – exposing taxpayers once again”. In response to this issue President Trump stated: “Fannie & Freddie should not be the responsibility of the Treasury Department”. Trump will be forced to end the bail-out and “sell” F&F to private financial institutions. Private institutions will not be making or buying long term mortgages given current economic realities: FALL This a repetition of 1933; (see page 3). The current economic slowdown and capital markets crisis is the “handwriting on the wall”. “Thursday (October 24, 2019), the Federal Reserve announced that they will nearly double the repo liquidity (Quantitative Easing; printing money) to $120 billion daily.” (This amounts to $2.4 trillion per month); from: https://seekingalpha.com/article/4299413-feds-not-qe-playing?ifp=0

Looking to Its Future, Wyoming Is Optimizing Legacy Systems

 Cache   

The Revenue Information System (RIS) in Wyoming is an important one, containing as it does data related to drivers' licenses, vehicle registrations, voter registrations and state service applications. 

This is valuable information related to citizens, and so it makes RIS an important system for the state. RIS also operates on COBOL. COBOL is a green-screen operating system, and when Googled, it returns this as the top question, “Does anyone still use COBOL?” It is, simply put, a programming language that these days is widely found at use in legacy systems, legacy systems like RIS.

Replacing or modernizing legacy systems like RIS is a recurring challenge for state government, especially as original designers and long-time users of the systems retire. New hires are no longer trained to use systems like COBOL, and so situations develop in which few people within agencies have extensive knowledge of the systems’ complexities. 

Wyoming CIO Gordon Knopp is well aware of this, and he said in a recent conversation with Government Technology that a replacement for RIS is overdue, a replacement that can communicate more effectively with other modern applications being used by the state. 

“People know that they type in these three pieces of data and out comes something else, but they don’t really know the programming behind it that makes that happen,” Knopp told Government Technology. “It’s a system that was built by a very talented group of people over time and then as we’ve lost those people we’ve not been able to backfill, for whatever the reason might be, and we’re now in sort of a pinch as this system is on deprecated equipment.”

Outright replacing RIS is not an option, at least not yet, given that the state Legislature hasn’t approved funding for a new or updated version. So, as is the case in many states, Wyoming must work within its means to do what it can. 

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), which is the agency responsible for the operating system, has been working with the Department of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) to evaluate the state’s dependency on legacy systems, as well as to deploy temporary fixes and avenues to replace the RIS. WYDOT and ETS began a joint review of legacy systems after the agencies presented RIS replacement options to the Joint Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Interim Committee in May.

WYDOT Support Services Administrator Taylor Rossetti said at the presentation that evidence at the time strongly supported a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution, which would cost about $68 million to install and train staff over 10 years.

“From my standpoint, I don’t know that we’re trying to necessarily limit that discussion at this point in time,” Rossetti said. “What I think we’re looking at is what’s going on with vehicle registration, drivers' licenses and other overall licensing systems in other states to try to figure out what it is we are or aren’t doing in Wyoming that maybe we could.”

With outright replacing RIS limited, the state got to work optimizing the system it had. First, they enlisted the help of Virginia-based Mathtech Inc. to evaluate the operating system by identifying redundancies and optimizing workflows. Second, WYDOT and ETS moved the RIS from state-owned hardware to a mainframe-as-a-service provided by IBM.

“Right now, what they’re doing is they are creating data maps, data process maps and workflow maps that are associated with the RIS,” Knopp said. “We need to understand all the ins and outs of how that system operates in order to figure out how to improve it or if we’re just going to flat out replace it. That’s what is in play right now.”

Knopp said Mathtech has allowed ETS staff to work alongside the vendor’s employees to document the intricacies of the RIS and to reduce the state’s dependency on contractors in the future. An improved understanding of the system will help his department provide better IT services and recommendations to other departments.

Knowledge gleaned from Mathtech, however, won’t cut Wyoming off entirely from vendor solutions, Knopp said. If his staff encounter a complex problem, then ETS would seek out the company for assistance.

“I think that’s a better use of the taxpayer dollar so that we don’t have to rely all the time on a third-party vendor, that we have some of that in-house expertise not just for any potential data upgrades, but just to make us a better service agency to those other agencies,” Knopp said. “It just makes good sense to do that. That’s something that I’m proud of that Mathtech is allowing us to sit shoulder to shoulder with them.”

Knopp said the decision to rid the state of failing hardware was underway when came onboard as the state’s CIO in March. He said Wyoming officials were faced with either a mainframe move or a significant investment in hardware, and that the IBM mainframe-as-a-service satisfies privacy and regulatory requirements while stabilizing the RIS. Mathtech will discern how much time the move will buy the state before modernization becomes an absolute necessity.

Troy Babbitt, an emergency communications program manager with WYDOT, said his department must ensure that a potential software update doesn’t jeopardize the legacy systems and the information contained therein.

“I don’t believe we’ve settled totally on a COTS solution, that’s obviously one of the solutions that’s out there,” Babbitt said. “I think at this point in time we’re taking into account all options and I think the goal is to gather all those requirements so that we get to a point where an RFP does come back to find out what does come back as one of the best solutions.”

Babbitt said Mathtech’s findings, which should be ready in about a year, will provide WYDOT leaders with more concrete evidence to present to the Legislature.

Ideally, Knopp would like to see a replacement to the RIS that is user friendly, provides online and mobile services, and increases staff productivity.

“So that the agencies who are trying to provide help can focus on human beings helping human beings instead of workflow processes that are antiquated and outdated,” Knopp said. “To me, that’s a long-range vision. I don’t want to say that this is the vision for the state of Wyoming because we don’t know what that costs. We have to be responsible for the state’s resources and come up with the best balance of giving resources and being responsible.”


          

State Contracts Mount for Aurigo’s Capital Project Software

 Cache   
road construction

With its population and federal deficit both steadily growing, the United States is lagging on infrastructure maintenance. In its most recent “report card” assessment in 2017, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave U.S. infrastructure an overall grade of D+. The assessment found that in order to improve this grade and maintain global competitiveness, Congress and the states would have to invest $206 billion a year more than they currently do, and failure to do so could cost the U.S. GDP up to $3.9 trillion by 2025.

One of the largest software providers for capital program management, Aurigo, based in Austin, Texas, has been working behind the scenes to help governments chip away at this problem by guiding them through major projects from planning to completion and maintenance, making them more viable and less risky. And it has a lot of practice.

Founded in 2003, Aurigo launched at a time when mobile technologies like personal digital assistants and palm devices were starting to allow for the digitization of paper inspections. The company has since transitioned through various mobile-first strategies to its current cloud SaaS model, expanding from a single on-premises product, for project inspections and management, to 17 offered subscriptions.

Talking to Government Technology last week, CEO Balaji Sreenivasan called Aurigo the “best-kept secret in capital program management software,” but the scale of its business tells a different story. The company has had a busy year, contracting with the city of Houston Public Works Department in October to manage $2.7 billion in planned capital projects in 2019. The company also picked up several contracts in recent months with state departments of transportation: Nevada in February, Iowa in April and Montana in May; along with local government contracts with San Bernardino County, Calif., in July and the city of Durham, N.C., in September.

“People wouldn’t use our software to build a mall or a store, but they would use our software to build an entire state highway network, or an airport, or urban infrastructure in cities or counties,” Sreenivasan said. “Anything that’s very, very large-dollar, capital-intensive assets that are publicly funded would be delivered using our software, and we manage the entire lifecycle of that.”

Sreenivasan said the company employs close to 360 people to serve about 160 agency customers, most of which are large state departments of transportation, cities, counties or water authorities. He said Aurigo’s software has been used to plan and deliver close to $300 billion worth of capital programs to date.

The sheer logistics and regulations involved with projects of that scale are key to the company’s value proposition. Sreenivasan pointed out that regulations for reporting how money is spent, and if projects meet certain standards with respect to civil rights and minorities, have gotten increasingly stringent in recent years. Handling this without software can be a “nightmare,” he said, and doing it wrong can cause massive delays.

Sreenivasan said the breadth of what their software does also distinguishes it from competitors. He likened project management tools from Smartsheet, Procore and Microsoft Project to “very intelligent spreadsheets,” for helping contractors of small orders to collaborate and manage their tasks. But he said they won’t help a government plan and fiscally constrain a five-year capital infrastructure budget and generate reports for the governor’s office, build forecasts of when entire capital programs will get delivered, handle project-level accounting, and track whether the funding meets civil rights goals.

This is usually not feasible, Aurigo said, because data sets across different phases of construction tend to live in different silos, from planning to design to project management and maintenance. But Aurigo’s platform puts them in one place.

“The whole world is driving toward an integrated data (delivery) model, where data can flow seamlessly from one phase to the other. What we have done at Aurigo is to try and address that for almost all of the phases,” he said. “For phases that we don’t, we have (integration) hooks ... into ESRI systems, ERP systems, et cetera, so the goal is to have all of your construction data from planning through inspection in one single spot, or an integrated platform.”

This ability to interface with other systems has helped make Aurigo’s software an integral part of infrastructure planning by the city of Lincoln, Neb. But it took time to get there.

Tim Pratt, IT manager for Lincoln Transportation and Utilities, said the city had been using SiteManager, a product of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, when it made the switch to Masterworks, Aurigo's flagship product, in 2006. The city was in the middle of its biggest public works project ever, the Antelope Valley project, and Pratt said the conversion required considerable work from Aurigo, but the result has been fruitful. More recently, he said Masterworks has been able to integrate with other software his department uses such as Accela’s permitting program, an asset management program, and OnBase, an enterprise content management system by Hyland Software.

“We use that software (Masterworks) basically to manage our construction contracts … When we go to pay on these contracts, the pay estimates are generated out of Masterworks. Simply put, let’s say it’s a paving project, and you find out you need to put a water main in. It’s not going to let you pay for it, because it’s not in the project, until you do a change order,” he said. “Masterworks gives us great control on spending. Our construction observers and project managers get frustrated from time to time, but we make sure they don’t overpay.”

Pratt estimated the city spends between $120 million and $200 million a year on projects, and they track all of it through Masterworks. He said the process is a far cry from what he saw in the department in 1999, when everything was done on spreadsheets, under a dozen project managers who all had their own way of doing things.

“It’s kind of the core of what we do,” he said.

For some government customers, the catch is that Masterworks can cost as much as millions of dollars per year in software subscription fees. Aurigo aimed to address this earlier this year with a new SaaS, Essentials, that pares Masterworks down to fundamental construction management tools and a subscription price starting at $15,000. Sreenivasan doesn’t anticipate business declining any time soon.

“Infrastructure is one of the biggest growth areas in this country at this stage, regardless of what the federal government does with it,” he said. “We’re going to be building America for a while. Using technology and the latest cloud software is imperative for this country to get built the right way.”

Editor's note: A quote from Sreenivasan regarding integrations has been trimmed to correct technical language.

HK an attractive fintech base

 Cache   

Hong Kong can help you find your fintech future because we are building that future right now.

 

The present, as you know, is in considerable flux here. But we are working to heal our community divide, communicating to find a way forward, to return harmony to Hong Kong. It is a work in progress but, in good time, we will get there.

 

In the meantime, the faltering global economy and Hong Kong's continuing community dissension have brought us a heavy hit. They have dealt a blow to our economic growth and to a great many businesses across sectors.

 

Despite today's very real business challenges, I am here to tell you that Hong Kong remains one of the world's most competitive economies. Last month, the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report ranked Hong Kong third - up from seventh last year. And in terms of digital competitiveness, the Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development ranked Hong Kong eighth, up from 11th last year, with a big leap forward in the factor "Future readiness". And earlier this year, the same institute also placed Hong Kong second in the World Competitiveness Yearbook.

 

Indeed, our banks and financial markets continue to operate smoothly.

 

And we remain strongly committed to the Linked Exchange Rate System, which has served Hong Kong well for 36 years, through countless economic and financial cycles.

 

Hong Kong's foreign exchange reserves stand at US$430 billion, more than two times of our monetary base.

 

No less important, the free flow of capital, in and out of Hong Kong, is guaranteed under the Basic Law. It is also driven by Hong Kong's status as one of the world's leading financial centres - and China's international financial capital.

 

It is not surprising that Hong Kong's fintech sector is fast emerging as a regional hub.

 

World-renowned innovation laboratories and accelerator programmes, such as Accenture Fintech Innovation Lab and Deloitte Asia Pacific Blockchain Lab, have established their presence here.

 

According to Accenture, Hong Kong fintech companies have raised US$1.1 billion over the past five years.

 

The number of fintech companies based here now exceeds 600. About 40% of them were started overseas, choosing turning to Hong Kong as their base in the Asian region.

 

Many of them see Hong Kong as their business bridge to the region and, in particular, to the Mainland. Indeed, more than 50% of our fintech companies either operated in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area or plan to expand their business into the region.

 

More than a gateway to the region, Hong Kong is at the heart of fintech innovation in Asia.

 

Earlier this year, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) awarded licences to our first eight virtual banks. We hope to see the launch of some of them by the end of the year. And you will hear more about our virtual banks in various sessions today and tomorrow.

 

Earlier this year, the HKMA also launched phase one of the Open Application Programming Interface (API) framework, allowing technology companies to create fintech-enabled solutions for the banking industry.

 

Today, more than 500 open APIs have been launched by some 20 retail banks. Phase two, which began last month, focuses on customer acquisition. The two phases, covering account information and transactions, are now being developed by the HKMA in close collaboration with the industry.

 

These new initiatives are game changers for the banking sector and Hong Kong's financial services sector as a whole.

 

In September last year, we launched the Faster Payment System, which connects banks and stored-value facilities, or e-wallets, enabling instant fund transfer - seven days a week, 24 hours a day - in both Hong Kong dollar and renminbi.

 

As of September, the Faster Payment System had recorded about 3.5 million registrations. In the month of September alone, the system processed about four million transactions involving $58 billion and RMB1 billion.

 

At the same time, we introduced the common QR code standard for retail payments. It helps merchants, especially small and medium enterprises, use a single QR code to accept payments by various schemes.

 

Last year, our Insurance Authority began its Fast Track scheme, which expedites applications to engage in the insurance business, in or from Hong Kong, solely using digital distribution channels.

 

The first virtual insurer under Fast Track was granted last December. A second authorisation was approved just last month, creating more customer-centric services and products.

 

Ultimately, of course, fintech rises on the human talent behind the technology.

 

It is one of the reasons why the HKMA established the Academy of Finance in June. The academy serves as a centre of excellence in the development of tomorrow's financial leaders.

 

And starting early next year, our Cyberport will launch a fintech training programme for in-service financial professionals, helping professionals from our traditional financial sector embrace the promise of fintech.

 

There is lots more in the fintech pipeline, but allow me, for just a moment, to touch on Shenzhen.

 

Hong Kong and Shenzhen are two of the 11 cities in the Greater Bay Area. Together, we will help drive innovation and technology for this fast-emerging cluster city development of 71 million consumers.

 

The Greater Bay Area is an enormous market, an outsized opportunity for fintech and investment in fintech.

 

Financial Secretary Paul Chan gave these remarks at the opening of Hong Kong Fintech Week 2019 on November 6.

Dubai - United Arab Emirates, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- The 4th edition of The Global Franchise Market – TGFM concluded today on a high-note attracting more than 1600 investors and franchisees coming from different parts of the world while also featuring the participation of 80 leading brands, representing a variety of business industries and sectors. The event succeeded in showcasing new franchise concepts and emerging key trends that are rapidly transforming the franchise landscape across many fields and sectors.

Throughout the 2 days, the exhibition floor witnessed a number of successful meetings and lucrative business partnerships and agreements. Golden Fork Seafood Restaurants, a 33-year old Dubai based seafood restaurants chain, signed a master franchise agreement with Uganda based Rawda Holdings Limited. The agreement was signed in the presence of Mohammed Shanavas, Managing Director, Golden Fork Seafood Restaurants LLC and Tarig Mohamed, Chairman of Rawda Holding Ltd, Uganda. Through this agreement, Golden Fork Seafood Restaurants will develop 25 outlets across 5 countries in Central Africa, where the first fine dining outlet is expected to open at Kampala city in Uganda by January, 2020. Golden Fork currently has 20 operating outlets and plans to expand to 20 countries by 2022 targeting 100 outlets.

Besides that, Ruky perfumes, the Dubai based perfume brand, signed a regional franchise development agreement, which involves a 30-outlet expansion across Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait. The agreement was signed in the presence of Dr. Shanith Mangalat, MD, Ruky Perfumes LLC and Mohammed Salem of Al Salem Group, Al Ain. Ruky Perfumes currently has 20 operating outlets and it aims to expand to 300 outlets across Arab Gulf region by 2025.

On another note, Rolf G. Kirst, Board Member, Franchise Pool International, commented on their participation saying, “On behalf of Franchise Pool International, it gives me great pleasure to attend TGFM, which has truly evolved into a major franchise event in the region. TGFM is a unique platform to meet with the ever-growing list of potential investors and leading franchise brands from the UAE, Middle East and the globe who prefer face-to-face interactions. Over the years, Dubai has grown immensely to become a lucrative competitive market in the franchise landscape and it retained its status as the top destination for franchising in the region. Moreover, Dubai is the best location for us franchise exhibitors, as it is home to those visitors who have the capital to start a real business and the imagination to succeed and expand their business.”

On her part, Romany Ward, Marketing Executive, Coffee Planet, Dubai said, “With a strong and established trading base across our foodservice, retail and C-store platforms in Dubai, it is indeed a great opportunity for us to be a part of a regionally focused franchise event such as TGFM here in Dubai, the homeland of our business and roastery. At TGFM, we met many serious F&B investors looking to partner with us, and we hope to continue growing the success story of our brand in the UAE and wider GCC countries.”

She added, “Dubai is the place where franchisors can make their dreams come alive and it offers both an inspirational and aspirational place to set up a shop. In today’s franchise market, only the very best operational brands setting up the highest retailing standards can survive the demands of the knowledgeable and culturally diverse breadth of customers in this region. We are constantly increasing our efforts to succeed and continue to drive more to share our coffee experience and expertise.”

Commenting on their participation, Umair Tariq, CFO, Kido Schools, said, “This is the first time we participate in TGFM, and it was indeed a great opportunity for us to meet and connect with many potential partners and investors who could help us in expanding the Kido Brand to the lucrative markets in the UAE and other parts of the GCC region. Since its inception in 2014, with its first school in Hong Kong, Kido School has today opened more than 24 schools spanning many cities such as Dubai, London and 4 cities in India. By 2020, we plan to open our first branch in Houston, Texas and another 10 schools across many countries worldwide.”

He added, “The UAE has historically led the wave of growth in the region’s education sector and still represents an attractive market opportunity. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are among the largest and the most popular markets for educational investors. While the franchise industry is rapidly evolving in many countries of the GCC and MENA regions, the UAE remains a preferred destination for franchisors and franchisees, given its easy accessibility, stability of its legal and regulatory systems and its openness to foreign investment.”

The Global Franchise Market (TGFM) is held under the patronage of Dubai Economy and is organized annually by INDEX Conferences and Exhibitions – a member of INDEX Holding.

Minister Josephine Teo announces F&B Tech Reboot Challenge

November 6, 2019 Singapore --( ASIA TODAY )-- The RAS Epicurean Star Award celebrates the milestone achievements of both individuals and establishments in Singapore’s F&B industry, recognising visionaries who have introduced innovative ideas and concepts through the years and to distinguish talented chefs, restauranteurs and service staff who have inspired others towards achieving excellence.

The 24th edition of the award held at Raffles City Convention Centre this evening, was graced by Guest of Honour, Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Home Affairs and attended by more than 1,000 guests.

A key highlight of the gala dinner was the announcement of the winners of the RAS Epicurean Star Award. This year more than 100 F&B establishments were nominated across 20 categories. The annual awards recognise the best fine-dining, casual and chain Western, Asian, Chinese and Japanese restaurants, best café, best gastro-pub, best new F&B establishment, best seafood, Mediterranean restaurants, best buffet, best buffet caterer and new category – Best Steak Restaurant.

This esteemed award is professionally evaluated and seeks to recognise the F&B establishments with cutting-edge concept, demonstrated continual excellence covering all essential areas and role models inspiring the industry to greater heights.

The highlights of the event this year included the announcement of the results of the 5S Excellence Award, the Star Chef Competition 2019, special recognition for EXSA 2019.

The F&B industry players at the award ceremony this year also witnessed the announcement of the launch of the ‘F&B Tech Reboot’ challenge supported by Enterprise Singapore and the Restaurant Association of Singapore. This initiative calls for tech solutions using open software to create connections and integrations across different softwares. While more companies are digitalising their processes, interoperability across different digital solutions remains a major challenge for the F&B industry. Four F&B companies will step forward to take this challenge. While having adopted different F&B concepts with varying levels of digitalisation, they all share a common challenge where interoperability lags across digital solutions. This initiative will help to point food companies in the right direction on their digital journey and lower the barriers of technology adoption.

Singapore, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- The organisers of ELDEX Asia announced Ms Cheng Li Hui, Member of Parliament, Tampines GRC and North East Adviser to and member of the PAP Seniors Group, will be its guest of honour opening the event on 8 November (Friday) at 0900 hrs. Other officiating guests include Dr Kanwaljit Soin (Founding President of the Women’s Initiative for Ageing Successfully (WINGS) and former Nominated Member of Parliament), Dr Michael Fung (Deputy Chief Executive (Industry); Chief Human Resource Officer; Chief Data Officer, SkillsFuture Singapore) and Ms Bernice Tay (Director, Food Manufacturing, Enterprise Singapore). Following the opening ceremony, the guests will tour the exhibition, where there are over 100 exhibiting companies from 10 economies.[1] These include pavilions from Japan, Singapore and Taiwan, where the former is the country of honour. Majority of exhibitors come from the lifestyle and wellness; healthcare and rehabilitation; finance, insurance and other services; and technology, digital and IT segments. Where the exhibition segment is applicable, the Best In Class award winner, along with the commendation award, and the ELDEX Pride,[2] will be revealed during the show on 8 November. The event takes place from 8 – 10 November at Suntec Singapore.

The ELDEX Asia Medical Conference on 8 Nov will commence from 0930 hrs with a keynote address by Associate Professor Wee Shiou Liang. The morning session will feature three other speakers discussing various aspects of the importance of exercise for seniors from pre-frail to increasingly frail stages before coming together to have a panel discussion. The afternoon session opens at 1400 hrs with a keynote address by Associate Professor Huang Dejian about the science behind food and how nutrition could be a form of medicine. After four other presentation about nutrition for seniors, there will be a panel discussion. The Medical Conference will conclude with a keynote by Professor Tai E-Shyong on new efforts by leveraging technology to enable the population to make healthier choices. The Singapore Medical Council, Singapore Nurses Board and Singapore Nutrition and Dietetics Association have recognised the strong scientific content by offering their attending members the following continuing education points:

• Singapore Medical Council – 4 points
• Singapore Nurses Board – 4 points
• Singapore Nutrition and Dietetics Association – 3 points

The over-subscribed conference will have over 350 delegates of which over 80% are doctors and nurses, while the rest are from the allied health community including therapists, dietitians and pharmacists. A number of the registered doctor delegates are from Australia, India and the US.

“We are absolutely delighted with the encouraging response of registrants for this first-time event. A quick glean of the data indicate that we have representatives from almost all of the local hospitals, including community ones, caregiving centres and homes attending the conference. Instead of capping the number of delegates to what we had originally planned, we have instead expanded the conference room by over 30% to accommodate more from the medical and allied health fraternities to come together to learn and network. We hope to accommodate as many interested delegates as possible,” said Mr Joseph Yeo, Event Director.

Trade professionals can expect to see exciting innovative products that are new to the market. There will also be products, solutions and technology to help them do more with less, especially with the currently labour-tight market in the eldercare space. The Food For Elders pavilion, led by Enterprise Singapore, will feature food products by Singapore companies that cater to the special needs of the silver demographic. Trade visitors can rely on recommended trails, available in the show directory, for the various exhibition segments to help them find the companies providing the types of products and services that they may be seeking.

A full day of B2B workshops have been lined up for trade visitors on 8 Nov, starting with a two-hour ELDEX Asia Jobs and Skills Panel, led by ELDEX Asia’s Skills Partner, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG). Together with their training partners, HMI Institute of Health Sciences, Singapore Institute of Technology’s Lean Transformation Innovation Centre, and Tsao Foundation, SSG will kick start the session by sharing about the changing jobs and skills landscape, different skills development models, and Singapore’s tripartite partnership models to build an enabling skills ecosystem for the Eldercare sector[3]. The panel will be followed by Japan Hour (where three of the exhibiting Japanese companies: gSports, Morinaga and Assist Motion, will talk about their new products). In the afternoon, there will be workshops by Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC) and Institute of Geriatrics and Active Ageing (IGA), with respect to their various programmes and initiatives in providing care for the elderly. There will be press conferences by Spire Research and Consulting on the market opportunities in the silver industry, and SGAssist, who will be launching their new App. There will also be an MOU signing among ELDEX Asia’s strategic partner, Brands For Good, and CEO Asia and ASEAN Corporate Social Responsibility Network to launch their tripartite partnership to launch ARIBA (ASEAN Responsible and Inclusive Business Alliance) that will be managed by CEO Asia.

Over the weekend on 9 and 10 November, ELDEX Asia will be open to the public. Besides becoming more aware of the different types of products available to help with ageing better particularly at the product demonstrations by exhibiting companies, there is a rich collection of workshops covering a broad range of topics including dementia, using technology to monitor diabetes, preparing for life’s eventuality, suitable exercises for active agers, support for caregivers, among many others. The full schedule of workshops may be found here. For the first 500 registered consumers that turn up each day, they can receive a goody bag valued at over S$50 comprising items including rice sponsored by Foodness Asia, pain relief gel, and vouchers from select exhibitors. There will be activities for the public where when they complete designated trails within the exhibition halls, they can stand to win different items.

“We have invested in ensuring that all attendees can visit the exhibition and the workshops for free, as long as they pre-register. We have worked in creating fun elements at the show where there are prizes to be won, including Samsung tablets with two years’ newspaper subscription to Berita Harian and Lianhe Zaobao, a two nights’ stay at the fairly recently opened Capital Kempinski, among others. We have carefully curated a collection of workshops that span a wide spectrum of interest areas that the public will find appealing and pique their curiosity. The reason why we have done so is because we want to inform and educate the public the importance of preparing for living longer lives in a better way. This social cause is particularly important to us as we all have family members that are ageing. The knowledge we gain through the workshops can help them to age better and retard frailty through active ageing,” concluded Mr Yeo.

• Partnering local tech start-up, Neeuro, the researchers are rolling out a pilot home-based intervention programme for children with ADHD undergoing treatment at IMH. The take-home kit comprises a wireless headband and a Samsung tablet with the pre-loaded game.
• Extensive clinical testing through a large-scale randomised clinical trial of the game-based brain-training programme found improvements in the attention span of children with ADHD.

Singapore, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- A first-of-its-kind personalised, interactive brain-training game will soon be helping children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) improve their attention span. The unique selling point of this technology is that children with ADHD can participate in this programme from home. A pilot run for the home-based programme will be launched for 20 children, aged 6-12 years, who are currently receiving treatment for ADHD at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH).

The game, called CogoLand1, was developed through a decade’s worth of extensive research, utilising Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology that incorporates machine-learning algorithms to personalise attention training, with the hope of complementing mainstay ADHD treatment. The use of CogoLand to complement ADHD treatment is the result of a collaboration between IMH, Duke-NUS Medical School and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R). Neeuro Pte Ltd, a local tech startup and spinoff from A*STAR, is the current sole licensee of the technology.

This non-invasive ADHD intervention programme was the subject of a large scale randomised clinical trial funded by the National Medical Research Council, involving 172 children with ADHD in Singapore.2 Associate Professor Lee Tih Shih, from Duke-NUS’ Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders programme and Principal Investigator of the large scale clinical trial, commented: “Our patented, personalised intervention using advanced BCI technology has shown very promising and robust results, and we hope it can benefit many children with ADHD in the future.”

Furthermore, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) scans of a subset of the children, led by Associate Professor Juan Helen Zhou, also from Duke-NUS, showed positive post-training effects observed in brain areas associated with attention and task-orientation.3 The patented technology was summarised by Professor Guan Cuntai, technical lead of the system and scientific advisor to Neeuro: “Our technology can accurately quantify a person’s attention level in real-time using a machine learning algorithm and, from there, develop a unique patented personalised training programme using a feed-forward concept for cognitive training. Further improvements have been made in recent iterations by capitalising on the latest deep learning approaches with our large dataset.” Professor Guan was also the Principal Scientist who led the BCI research when he was part of A*STAR’s I2R.

Dr Lim Choon Guan, Deputy Chief of the Department of Developmental Psychiatry at IMH said: “While medication and behavioural therapy are effective in treating symptoms of ADHD in children, some parents are also keen to explore other approaches that can help their children to improve their concentration. After a decade of collaborative work, our team is very excited to pilot this home-based brain-training game which parents can use to help their children regulate themselves.” The home-based programme will see the 20 children each receive a take-home kit that includes Neeuro’s brainwave-reading SenzeBand and a Samsung tablet with the preloaded CogoLand game, which they will use following a prescribed regimen for the duration of the programme. This approach is intended to be a complement and/or supplement to conventional ADHD treatment.

According to Dr. Alvin Chan, CEO and Co-Founder of Neeuro, “At Neeuro, our aim is to utilise technology to enable positive change in the neurological agility and fitness of our users. We are privileged to be working with institutions such as IMH, Duke-NUS and A*STAR, in conjunction with our hardware partner Samsung, to explore the use of cutting-edge technology in order to achieve this aim. It is our hope that this trial paves the way to enable the progressive development of new complementary options that will bring about positive outcomes for the millions of children afflicted with ADHD globally, especially those in Singapore.”

Mr Philip Lim, CEO of A*STAR’s innovation and enterprise office A*ccelerate, said: “It is always fulfilling when homegrown technologies are translated into meaningful outcomes. We are proud to be a part of Neeuro’s journey, and A*STAR will continue supporting entrepreneurial companies like them to grow and innovate.”

When Should You Replace Your Free SIEM Tools?

 Cache   
Undefined

Free Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions have significant benefits, providing visibility into security environments and enabling proactive vulnerability management for many small and mid-sized organizations. However, these tools often come with limitations that will lead security teams to consider commercial options. How do you know when it’s time to upgrade?

When your organization expands 

Growth is one of the first indicators that you need to migrate to a commercial SIEM tool. Freeware may have limited functionality that worked when you were first starting up, but you may find the benefits offered in an enterprise version are better suited for your organization as it grows. Alternately, freeware may offer full functionality for a limited number of assets. As an organization grows, the number of devices and applications naturally increases. Since a SIEM is strongest when it’s centralizing everything in the environment, outgrowing the freeware is a good indicator that you’re ready for the full commercial version.

When you're ready for support  

While free SIEM tools have their benefits, they usually offer only documentation for support. It may take a bit longer to get up to speed, but once you've gotten comfortable with the SIEM solution, this will typically not be a problem. But any more complex questions or issues will go unanswered or take much longer to solve without the assistance of support personnel who are skilled specialists on the product. Good support resources provide stability, vital expertise, and peace of mind that can be as valuable as the product itself.

Open source tools may not even have official support people or documentation, so support options have to be found elsewhere—through forums or from other open source users. Additionally, while open source SIEM solutions allow you to develop them further, customizing a SIEM tool so extensively is quite the undertaking. If you have someone maintaining and continuing to develop custom coding, this is a large investment in terms of time and skills, so open source can’t really be considered free.

Finding the right commercial SIEM software

If your organization is facing any of these issues, it might be time to migrate to a paid SIEM solution. Commercial tools can easily scale, streamline troubleshooting, and get the support you need when you need it. 

A majority of SIEM tools are intended for huge organizations, with many more features than a small to mid-sized organization wants, and a price point that is far out of range. Thankfully, there are mid-range SIEM solutions that are intuitive to use and provide better value than some of the heavy-weight options—while still providing all the critical functionality you need as a growing business.

When you're looking for a tool, make sure you find one that offers: 

  • Real-time monitoring: The sooner you can see a threat, the sooner you can eliminate it. Real time monitoring allows you to investigate and begin remediation quickly.  
  • Tailored prioritization and escalation: Threat prioritization saves security teams from having to sort out critical threats from the mundane. The ability to fine tune what constitutes a real threat for each asset creates an even more effective filter.
  • The ability to monitor every type of device: For maximum effectiveness, your SIEM should be able to easily monitor any type of data, be it a standard operating system like Windows or a customized feed like a legacy application or homegrown database.
  • Data normalization: With so many types of applications and devices whose data is streamed through a SIEM, the language and formatting of the log information can vary broadly. Normalizing this data it into a common format and giving it meaning streamlines the process considerably.
  • Integrations: Every organization requires multiple security solutions, so the ability to integrate data from other enterprise applications, like antivirus software, saves time and provides a holistic picture of your environment.
  • Long term event storage: Compliance and analysis may require long term storage of data. An effective SIEM allows you to specify exactly what types of data you want to store, excluding data that you know is harmless.
  • Reporting capabilities: Logging all event and incident response activity not only provides valuable performance data, it also proves adherence to multiple industry standards and regulations to inquiring auditors.

 

In addition to finding the right features and doing a SIEM pricing comparison, other factors should be taken into account, like licensing models or deployment methods. It’s helpful to develop a requirements checklist to evaluate the various offerings on the market and how they line up with what you need. The right SIEM solution will centralize your security, and as your organization continues to grow, this will provide stability for your security team, keeping your infrastructure safe through every transition.

Patent Infringements - Global Overview

A Guide to Patent Infringement: A Global Perspective

Ideas and innovation are the cornerstones of any successful corporation. Given that modernisation and globalisation has had a significant impact on corporations, it is only fair that the ideas defining these businesses are given protection from being misused, manipulated or stolen. Stolen ideas is a modern-day problem playing on capitalism by generating revenue to the 'thief'. With the view of preventing this, ideas and innovations are being granted patents now.

A patent, in simpler terms, is a right granted to an inventor over his invention by a sovereign authority providing the inventor with exclusive rights over the ownership of the process, design or invention. A patent granted to the investor is for a set period in return for disclosure of the invention. Infringing such a right gives the inventor a right to claim for remedies against the infringer. The claim includes and is not limited to injunctions, damages, account of profits, declarations and so much more depending on the jurisdiction of the disputed invention.

Infringement of patents reign in all industries, from Apple making a claim against Samsung over an infringing patent on their smartphones and tablets to the 'Da Vin Ci Code' book to movie rights disputed.  This article aims to give a global perspective on patent infringement by analysing the different rules and regulations governing these jurisdictions and the various remedies available, respectively.

United Kingdom (UK)

Governing Law and Overview

Patent infringement is a statutory tort as per the common law. In the United Kingdom, there exist well-structured legislations to govern patent rights and infringement. The Patent Act 1977 (as amended) (PA 1977) sets out the various rights and remedies governing patents in the UK. The later legislation Patent Rules passed in 2007 deals with the procedure involved in filing a patent with the UK Patent Office (known as the Intellectual Property Office), filing a patent infringement lawsuit, challenging the validity of the patent, opposing the grant of a patent and other related matters. There are Civil Procedure Rules governing patent rights in the UK as well however these CPR apply exclusively to England and Wales and not to Scotland and Northern Ireland as they have their own rules and regulations in the local courts.

Overview

As with all jurisdictions, in the UK a patent is perceived to be infringed when the invention is put to use by someone who is not authorised. Section 60 of Patent Act 1977 states that a person/entity is said to have infringed a patent only if the patent is granted and in force.

Additionally, the person/entity in question should have done any of the following without the consent of the proprietor to have infringed a patent in the UK:

  • If the invention is a product: the person/entity disposes of, offers to dispose of, uses or imports the original product
  • If the invention is a process: the person/entity uses or offers the process of creation in the UK in addition to the point mentioned above

To understand how to apply for a patent in the UK, firstly, it is essential to note that patent right is a negative right granted to the applicant, which prohibits an action relating to his invention. However, for this act, there would be no infringement if the patent is used for non-commercial, research, anti-terrorism, experimental medicines and related purposes. The reason for this was explained in the case of Corvalve Inc v Edwards Lifesciences AG [2009] EWHC 6 (Pat) where the courts held that experiments with the patent are allowed to encourage scientific research while still protecting the legitimate interest of the patentee. However, there is some debate over this subject as experimentation often leads to commercial gain (case of Monsanto v Stauffer [1985] RPC 515.)

Procedure

Section 1 of PA 1977 states that for a patent to be valid and granted it needs to be new, should involve an inventive step, should be capable of industrial application and is not excluded from being protected as a patent. Once the validity of the patent is granted and is deemed valid, opposing parties can apply directly to the courts to revoke the patent or declare infringement of the patent, regardless of whether the inventor of the patent or the owner is threatened with litigation.

A patent awarded to the United Kingdom is through either the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) or the European Patent Office (EPO). Additionally, the possibility of joining either process under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) can be made through a foreign request. When issued, a patent provides an exclusive and absolute right to exploit what is protected by the patent and can provide coverage for 20 years as long as it is renewed (and the applicable fee paid) every year from the fourth anniversary of the filing date. A term of protection can be expanded by applying for a Supplementary Protection Certificate (SPC).

Infringement in the UK

It is an infringement to sell a patented process for use in the United Kingdom if the person making the offer understands, or it is apparent to a reasonable person, that using the method without the permission of the proprietor would be an infringement of the patent. Furthermore, Section 60(2) Patent Act 1977 also allows the patent proprietor to prevent an unauthorized person from supplying or offering to in the United Kingdom means relating to an essential element of the invention when they know, or a reasonable person would have known, that the element was suitable for and intended to be used in order to put the invention into effect in the United Kingdom. This is referred to as contributory infringement.

Section 60(3) Patents Act 1977 exempts commercial staple products from this provision: -a patent proprietor can not prohibit someone from selling standard commercial objects merely because they could be used to assemble an infringing device, or even if the manufacturer knows that they are intended for that reason. For instance, according to the precedent in Menashe Business Mercantile Ltd v William Hill Organisation Ltd [2002], computer software is a patented entity although the manual to use it would not be.

The nature of the various infringing acts in themselves is rarely ambiguous. Nonetheless, one issue that arises is whether fixing a copyrighted item can be infringed as a "making" operation. The response depends on the extent of the repair. Several factors such as the possible lifetime of different components, have to be considered. As per Schutz (UK) Ltd v Werit UK Ltd [2013], if the worn or damaged product continues to embody the entire claimed invention, excluding the component requiring replacement or repair, then it is likely that repair by replacing that component does not "make" the patented product.

Another question arises when the product supplied is a package of parts that helps the user to assemble the component. Since the consumer has protection under Section 60(5)(a) Patents Act (discussed below), it can be argued that the selling of the package does not result in an infringing act of "making''. A similar argument occurs when the package is manufactured for sale so that there is no violation outside the jurisdiction. Nevertheless, these claims were not checked in case law. In any event, a supplier of such a kit might also be liable for contributory infringement. It is also essential to distinguish between direct and indirect patent infringement.

Court Proceedings

It is mainly in London that court proceedings involving UK and EP (UK) patents take place. They are heard either before the Patents Court (a High Court division) or before the Patents County Court, depending on the value and complexity of the case-more complicated cases or cases where the value of the case is more than £ 500,000 are heard before the Patents Court. The judges make their judgments; no jury exists. The procedure at the Patents Court is thorough and generally involves:

  • discovery of documents;
  • experiments (when necessary);
  • written facts and expert evidence (experts are appointed by a party, not appointed by a court); and
  • witness cross-examination at trial.

In the United Kingdom, copyright disputes and patent validity issues were resolved in one court.  In comparison, in Germany, the two issues are addressed in separate trials (so-called 'bifurcation'). The Patents County Court provides a cheaper alternative to the Patents Court procedure. The level of complicated research information presented and the volume of cross-examination will be reviewed in the Patents County Court, providing small and medium-sized businesses and private individuals with a more open and generally cheaper process. If any party to a case at the Patents County Court thinks that the Patents Court is more suitable, a transfer request may be made.

Damages

In claims that proceed in the Enterprise Court of Intellectual Property, the court will make a summary assessment of the party's costs in favour of which any cost order is made. The extensive assessment is not valid. The court will not require a party to pay total costs in excess of:

  • £ 50,000 on the final determination of a negligence claim; and
  • £ 25,000 on a claim for damages or benefit account.

The maximum amount of scale costs imposed by the court is as specified for each point of the case.

Remedies

Remedies for the patent proprietor, in either case, include a temporary or permanent order, products being shipped or destroyed, damages being paid, or an account of the infringer's earnings, or legal costs being incurred. UK patent judges ' decisions are also taken into account and often carry persuasive weight in circumstances where the same patent is litigated in other European countries

European Union

Concerning the EU, Section 60 of the PA 1977  of the infringing acts stems from the Community Patent Convention (Articles 25 and 26), revised and replaced by the Community Patent Agreement (89/695/EEC) (OJ 1989 L 401/1) (CPC). Similar provisions are introduced by other European countries. Section 60 was framed in compliance with Section 130(7) of the PA 1977 to have the same consequences in the United Kingdom as almost as possible as the relevant provisions of the CPC. Section 130(7) stems from the Community Patent Joint Declaration Agreement (OJ 1989 L 401/57) which is further implemented by the EEC member states.

In Bristol Myers Squibb v Baker Norton Pharmaceuticals [ 1999 ] RPC 253, Jacob J held that since there was no distinction between Articles 25 and 26 of the CPC and the relevant provisions of section 60, it was easier to work based on the direct effect of the CPC provisions. Nevertheless, as section 60 has tended to focus mainly on that provision, this report is equally based on that provision as it represents the law in the UK and UK case law. Nonetheless, when interpreting the provision, the UK courts often turn to national European (mainly German) case law.
