leave a comment »

PARIS, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ —

10th Maghreb, Mediterranean, MidEast Upstream Conference highlights new developments

With the potential to satisfy all of Europe’s gas-LNG needs, with much unexplored terrain and new oil-gas finds the Maghreb, Mediterranean & MidEast region remains a target zone for future opportunity and will continue to shape the dynamics of the global upstream industry. All new discoveries, production developments, gas-LNG finds, state oil/gas policies and investment opportunities that allow the game to grow, will be highlighted at the 10th Maghreb, Mediterranean, MidEast Upstream Conference 2013 in Paris.

The international senior-level conference will be hosted by Global Pacific & Partners on June 4th and 5th at the L’Hotel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France. Before this meeting brings together 150 senior level key government, national oil company and corporates as well as industry players to focus on all new developments, Global Pacific & Partners chairman and CEO Dr Duncan Clarke provides an in-depth examination of the upstream oil and gas-LNG strategies in exploration and development across North Africa and the Greater Middle East, and the strategies of corporate, governments and national oil companies as well as new players during his 10th Maghreb-MidEast Strategy Briefing, prior to the conference, on June 3rd.

During the conference 27 keynote speakers from giant oil states, super majors to private vehicles and local companies will provide inside in new exploration and development opportunities, government upstream policies, new venture potential, new acreage, projects and markets in over 20 countries, from Iran to Cyprus, from Mauritania to Morocco, from Italy to Croatia.

“The Maghreb/MidEast has strong state oil players with dominant positions in many countries, yet opportunities have expanded in deals, bid rounds and acreage opened in frontier zones and new basins,” Duncan Clarke says. “Competition in the Middle East and North Africa remains fierce, despite risks, while crude prices and the global economic crisis has forced readjustments and changes in regimes. Yet energy investment interest remains strong, and the large firms – from super-independents to super-majors and national oil companies from overseas – have added to in-place portfolio in both the wider Middle East and in North African oil/gas and LNG ventures.”

Frost & Sullivan: Hosted and cloud-based UC poised to become the pillars of growth in the overall Australian UC services market

leave a comment »

~ Channel partners face a major transformation in adapting to a cloud-based service delivery model

SYDNEY, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Frost & Sullivan’s new research, Australian Unified Communications (UC) Services Market 2013, which includes hosted and cloud-based UC and managed services for UC, reports that the UC services market in Australia is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.9% from 2012 to 2019. Going forward, the following factors will drive the growth in the overall UC services market in Australia:

  • Demand for managed services for UC
  • Demand for hosted voice and contact centre solutions
  • Uptake from SMB segment
  • Uptake from Government and Banking & Finance      sectors

Audrey William, Head of Research, Australia and New Zealand, ICT Frost & Sullivan says, “On-premise deployment remains the predominant model for UC deployment in Australia, with the cloud-based alternative still at an early stage of growth. This is expected to change in favour of the cloud-based model in the future, albeit at a gradual rate. Many organisations also remain concerned about the reliability and security aspects of hosted and cloud-based solutions. Although such factors are expected to limit adoption of cloud-based solutions in the short term, the lack of flexibility and scalability of an on-premise model will cause organisations to consider alternatives. While the hosted and cloud-based UC market in Australia is at an early stage of growth, the segment is poised for strong growth over the next five to seven years.”

Managed services has emerged as an attractive model for handing over the complex service and maintenance overheads while holding full control over the actual hardware and applications. Demand for managed services is particularly strong for videoconferencing endpoints, where a third party provides a range of services including maintenance, support, troubleshooting and scheduling. “As the uptake of videoconferencing endpoints continues to grow, there will be a corresponding demand for video related services.Managed services accounted for about 35% of overall UC services revenues in 2012 and is expected to experience strong growth as organisations prefer to use managed services for their audio and collaboration infrastructure,” she states.

In terms of applications, voice-based solutions and conferencing solutions together accounted for the majority of UC services revenues in 2012. For hosted conferencing solutions (audio, video and web), Australia remains one of the largest markets within APAC, with hosted audio conferencing generating majority of the revenues.

The cloud-based UC model represents a major shift for UC channel partners who were previously focused on professional services and support services. Cloud-based UC is demanding a new way of delivering services to the customer, making the channel partner the main point of service delivery. Many channel partners are realigning their strategies to be in a position to capitalise on future customer demands. Channels that have a significant dependence on traditional hardware and on-premise UC solutions risk becoming irrelevant as demand for cloud-based UC gathers momentum.

Anand Balasubramanian, Industry Analyst, Australia & New Zealand ICT Practice, explains  Channel partners and service providers are beginning to strengthen their local data centre capabilities. Over the next few years a number of vendors and service providers are expected to build or acquire data centre capabilities. Such capabilities will also serve as a competitive barrier for global service providers and telcos looking to enter the Australian market without a local data centre capability. Telstra, NEC, Optus-Alphawest and Dimension Data are the major channel partners in the UC services market in Australia, and hold majority market share. Other specialised players such as Electroboard, Amcom and Broadreach are also strengthening their portfolio through a combination of hosted and managed UC solutions.

Given their market reach and breadth of solutions, Cisco and Microsoft have established themselves as the main vendors in the hosted and cloud-based UC market and have significantly distanced themselves from the competition. Channel partners will look to align themselves closely with Cisco and Microsoft to capitalise on the market opportunity. In addition, vendors such as Google will also be well-positioned to increase their footprint in the cloud-based UC market, and will emerge as major competitors to Cisco and Microsoft.

Over the few years, another key factor that will serve as an enabler for growth in the UC services market will be mobility. The widespread use of consumer devices such as smart phones and tablets has driven trends such as Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) in the enterprise segment. Organisations are also realising the benefits of using smart devices to enhance collaboration and communication among employees. The increasing advances in the capabilities of smart devices are also making them well suited to extend the reach of UC solutions within an enterprise.

As the market for cloud-based UC matures, a number of new vendors will enter the market as organisations seek the flexibility and the “any device” accessibility advantages of cloud-based solutions.

Frost & Sullivan Australian UC Services Market 2013, includes survey results and statistics of210 IT decision makers Frost & Sullivan interviewed in Australia to understand market behaviour and views towards Unified Communications overall and hosted and cloud-based UC. Respondents were senior management level executives, IT managers and IT decision makers with control of or insight into their technology budget and strategy of their organisations.

Frost & Sullivan: Government Initiatives Drive Use of Electronic Medical and Health Records in Asia-Pacific

leave a comment »

– Regulations and incentives for healthcare providers to go paper-less fuel adoption

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health record (EHR) systems are becoming increasingly popular in Asia-Pacific as the region’s healthcare industry moves towards digitization. Governments, non-profit entities and the private sector are aggressively investing in EMR and EHR projects at both regional and local levels to achieve seamless information exchange that will contribute towards cost savings as well as improvements in clinical outcomes.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.connectedhealth.frost.com), EMR and EHR Market in APAC, finds that the market earned revenues worth US$1.2 billion in 2012 and estimates this to reach US$2.20 billion in 2018.

EMR and EHR systems reduce the costs of storing, transmitting and managing volumes of medical and health data, decrease users’ burden of multiple tests and procedures, improve healthcare delivery, and reduce medical errors. Healthcare providers’ recognition of these benefits accelerates the adoption of EMR and EHR solutions.

“Government initiatives to establish standards, regulations and infrastructure further encourage healthcare providers to adopt EMR and EHR technology,” saidFrost & Sullivan Healthcare Research Analyst Natasha Gulati. “Medical professionals hope to improve operational efficiency; medical resource utilization; patient data access in rural areas and aged care programs through EMR systems.”

However, challenges around interoperability and the lack of technical skills among medical professionals hinder market development. Robust EMR or EHR equipment are expensive, curbing investments from APAC healthcare providers who are already reeling under the pressures of declining margins. Their inability to extend their operational budgets to include sophisticated solutions restricts revenue inflow.

Governments looking to fund the implementation of these solutions must balance their grants between new investments as well as maintenance and upgrades. In addition to funding, governments are collaborating with software and infrastructure companies to build EHR networks in public hospitals.

“Healthcare groups and solution vendors are investing in training programs to build a skilled medical workforce that can leverage sophisticated technologies,” noted Gulati. “Several universities have developed curricula on health IT management, health informatics and public health information management to facilitate superior healthcare delivery.”

Effective EMR and EHR can improve the quality of care, relieve margin pressures and drive revenue growth.

Electrical Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Poised for Rapid Expansion in Asia-Pacific, Finds Frost & Sullivan

leave a comment »

Ongoing research to develop low-cost and quick charging facilities offer huge market potential

KUALA   LUMPUR, Malaysia, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The increasing emphasis on reducing carbon dioxide emissions and ensuring that electrical vehicles (EVs) constitute 20 percent of the total vehicles on road by 2030 in several Asia-Pacific countries will lead to the expansion of the EV charging infrastructure market in the region. Tax exemptions and Government incentives on EVs and EV charging stations will further encourage the market’s rapid growth.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.energy.frost.com), Asia-Pacific Electrical Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Market, finds that the market’s installation base touched 45,486 units in 2012 and estimates this to reach 1,382,494 units by 2020. The research covers level 1, level 2, direct current (DC), and induction chargers.

“Subsidies, free parking facilities, and access to special lanes promote the sale of EVs, thereby requiring investments in enhancing EV charging infrastructure,” saidFrost & Sullivan Energy & Environmental Research Analyst Avanthika Satheesh.P. “The testing of EV chargers in smart grid pilot projects by Japan, South Korea and Singapore to allow off-peak, vehicle-to-home, and vehicle-to-grid charging will further boost market development.”

While the availability of devices with different charging times offers end users flexibility, the long charging periods of level 1 and level 2 chargers dissuade potential customers. The rapid DC charger takes the least time, but its hardware and installation costs are high. The huge distance between charging stations, especially in large countries like Australia, also pose a challenge for customers trying to locate a station before their vehicles run out of power.

To counter these concerns, Governments have invested in EV test-bed programs and battery swapping stations in Asia-Pacific. These stations are designed to replace a car’s battery with a fully charged one within the same time usually spent at a gas station. Australia has initiated level 2 and DC charging trial test beds to analyze the impact of different chargers on the power grid.

“Japan, South Korea and Taiwan are conducting research on faster charging systems at lower costs, and will commercialize the resultant products after 2015,” noted Satheesh. “Induction-based wireless chargers are also under testing, and wind energy-powered chargers will gain acceptance in Australia by 2020.”

Subscription-based services, which increase customer retention, cost recovery, and brand value, are likely to become popular in the region.

The 11th Eurasian Media Forum (EAMF) Will Open in the Kazakh Capital City of Astana on the 25th of April, 2013

leave a comment »

ASTANA, Kazakhstan, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ —

According to the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, “The Eurasian Media Forum over 10 years since its inception has grown into a unique dialogue platform of global level for an exchange of opinions on the most important issues of the present. On the forum fields leading experts from all across the world form a global intellectual response to modern challenges of the 21st century.”

http://www.multivu.com/mnr/58721-eurasian-media-forum-meet-in-kazakhstan

The Cyprus syndrome, withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan, information security, media trends of the 21stcentury and many other issues will top the agenda of the 2013 EAMF. The Speakers of the Media Forum will involve Deputy Prime Minister of Greece T. Pangalos, presidential candidate of the Islamic Republic of Iran H. Amirahmadi, General Secretary of Israeli Press Council A. Bachar, member of British Parliament G. Galloway, Minister-Political Affairs Advisor to Afghan President M. Maroufi and others.

Delegates from more than 40 countries, including the most prominent representatives of international media domain, took part in EAMF 2013. Meetings of journalists from various corners of the world spanning Iran and the United Kingdom, Palestine and Russia are held at EAMF in an open and friendly manner. Delegates from over 50 countries have already registered to participate in this year’s Forum.

– We are confident that the new milestone of Eurasian Media Forum, as in previous years, will be abundant in bright colours of lively discussions and constructive debates, – the organisers of the Media Forum believe. As is well-known, the core challenge facing us all today lies precisely in the domain of ideological foundation of modern society and world order. The crisis served to lay bare problems which had been chosen to be ignored amid ever expanding consumption. However, the concept of value of justice and morality cannot be any longer perceived as secondary to the importance of economic growth. Thus the talk of price and meaning of economic well-being amounts not so much to a discourse about current affairs, as to the future of our children, our countries and nations. The Eurasian Media Forum serves as an efficient platform for such a discussion. Surely, the agenda of the forthcoming Forum won’t be able to touch on all the problems of modern world; however, the uppermost trends of the forum’s agenda have been captured fairly accurately. The most important thing is that the Eurasian Media Forum, as in previous years, initiates a fair and open discussion which might, perhaps, continue at other levels.

We would like to bring to you attention the fact that three days have left before the closure of registration of EAMF participants.

Registration for the 11st Eurasian Media Forum, agenda and more detailed information can be found on the websitehttp://www.eamedia.org.

INTERMACH Thailand Paves Way for Machinery and Automotive Industry Growth

ASEAN’s Leading Industrial Machinery & Subcontracting Exhibition Prepares Southeast Asia for 2015 AEC with Advanced Technology, Products, and Global Business Opportunities

BANGKOK, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — INTERMACH, ASEAN’s leading industrial machinery and subcontracting exhibition will host its largest and most business-enticing event to date for Southeast Asia. Now in its 30th year, INTERMACH 2013 reaches a record of 1,200+ participating manufacturers and distributors of industrial machinery from across 35 countries to showcase over 4,000 products and technologies — several of which making their Southeast Asian debut. Co-located with Sheet Metal Asia — the region’s largest showcase of sheet metal fabrication machinery, and SUBCON Thailand — the largest subcontracting exhibition in Southeast Asia, INTERMACH 2013 takes place on May 16-19, at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand.

As the world anticipates the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) by 2015 — a plan to create a unified market place for ASEAN countries with free flow of goods, services, investment, capital and skilled labor — two industries and their stakeholders in particular anxiously await the opening doors of larger opportunity: the machinery and automotive industries. Implementation of the AEC is likely to create more balanced competition in the automotive industry by allowing smaller players, Japan’s Suzuki, Mitsubishi and Isuzu for example, to expand their presence and challenge larger incumbents with the favorable manufacturing and subcontracting opportunities through ASEAN. Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia for example are the current leading players in Southeast Asia’s automotive market who help to produce 89% of the passenger car market and stand to further benefit with foreign car principals expanding operations within the regions.

Several foreign automotive supply and component companies are already pre-planning for the future by debuting their products and services at ASEAN’s leading and first in the year business machinery and subcontracting event — INTERMACH Thailand. German based Bosch Rexroth, one of the world’s leading specialists in the field of drive and control technologies, has plans to showcase their latest Drive and Control Technology at INTERMACH 2013 including Mechatronic Motion models, Energy Saving Drive & Control Solutions, and State of the Art Welding Technology and Tightening Technology used in modern car manufacturing plants.

Similarly, the predicted appeal of high-quality and lower manufacturing costs within ASEAN vis-a-vis the AEC 2015 has attracted the attention of the international machinery community to participate and contribute to providing higher standards of manufacturing tools and equipment for Southeast Asia as a means to both enhance technology for ASEAN manufacturers as well as new business for themselves. Japan based Okuma TECHNO, a leading industrial machinery-manufacturing conglomerate, plans to debut their Vertical Machining Center featuring the premium model of their MB-Series and their MC Master Controller — a training simulator controller — at INTERMACH.

“We are developing and strengthening customer trust and confidence by attending INTERMACH as an exhibitor,” said Mr. Yamasaki, Managing Director of Okuma Techno (Thailand). “INTERMACH is a mega technology and machinery event, which fortunately coincides with most companies’ procurement and purchasing needs — at the start of the business buying cycle. Last year we attended INTERMACH 2012, and met up with many Japanese investors. In fact, we were able to close significant deals with new clients at the show. That is why we decided to come again in 2013.”

Manufacturers, industrialists and professionals interested in learning more about the upcoming machinery and subcontracting opportunities leading up to the AEC 2015 are encouraged to attend INTERMACH 2013. Visitors will gain in-depth understanding of market conditions and opportunities as well as product applications through INTERAMCH’s series of onsite business and product seminars, new product demonstrations, and a host of networking and business-matching events. Online pre-registration is open from now until May 10, 2013.

Cardiovascular Summit TCTAP 2013 Symposium to Feature OrbusNeich’s COMBO Dual Therapy Stent (TM)

leave a comment »

HONG KONG, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — OrbusNeich today announced that it will host a symposium featuring the COMBO Dual Therapy Stent at the Cardiovascular Summit TCTAP 2013 in Seoul, South Korea. The symposium, entitled “A New Dimension to Stent Therapy” will take place at 12:45 p.m. KST on Thursday, April 25, in the Coronary Arena, Level 1. The event will be chaired by Dr. Seung-Jung Park, of Asan Medical Center, Seoul, South Korea, and Dr. Mitchell Krucoff, of Duke University Medical Center, Durham, N.C.

Agenda

Opening address – Dr. Seung-Jung Park
Evaluating COMBO’s Healing Profile — The EGO COMBO Serial OCT Study — Prof. Stephen W.L. Lee, Queen Mary Hospital, University of Hong Kong
Q&A – Dr. Seung-Jung Park
Dual Therapy Stent — Is There a Need? — Dr. Tiong Kiam Ong, Sarawak General Hospital, Malaysia
Dual Therapy Stent — Addressing the Unmet Needs of Balancing Bleeding & Ischemic Events — The Clinical View — Dr. Mitchell Krucoff
Q&A and Closing Remarks — Dr. Mitchell Krucoff
“We continue to see robust results for the COMBO Dual Therapy Stent showing that it achieves both durable (24 months) neointimal suppression in addition to excellent healing at early months,” said Prof. Lee.

Dr. Park added, “Because the COMBO Stent limits neointimal proliferation while accelerating the healing process, it may provide interventional cardiologists with a safe and effective treatment option that will ultimately reduce our dependence on long-term dual antiplatelet therapy.”

About the COMBO Dual Therapy Stent

The COMBO Dual Therapy Stent is the first dual therapy stent to both accelerate endothelial coverage and control neo-intimal proliferation through the combination of the proven pro-healing technology with an abluminal sirolimus drug elution delivered from a biodegradable polymer that achieves full and complete dissipation by 90 days.

OrbusNeich’s patented endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) capture technology promotes the accelerated natural healing of the vessel wall after the implantation of blood-contact devices such as stents. The technology consists of an antibody surface coating that captures EPCs circulating in the blood to the device to form an endothelial layer that provides protection against thrombosis and modulates restenosis.

About OrbusNeich

OrbusNeich is a global company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets innovative medical devices for the treatment of vascular diseases. Current products are the world’s first pro-healing stent, the Genous Stent, as well as other stents and balloons marketed under the names of Azule™, R stent, Scoreflex™, Sapphire™, Sapphire II and Sapphire NC.
