China Dominates the 2014 QS University Rankings: BRICS

leave a comment »

LONDON, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ —

Published today at #QSWUR

QS University Rankings: BRICS, which compares the Top 200 institutions in Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, identifies China as the most likely of the BRICS nations to achieve its goal of developing world-class universities.

Logo –

Ben Sowter, QS head of research says: “The term BRICS has become shorthand for the idea that the world’s economic future is not in the hands of traditional players such as the US, Europe and Japan.  To compete with the existing developed world, these fast growing economies need world-class university systems.”

China claims six of the top 10 places, ahead of Brazil (2), Russia (1) and South Africa (1).  Russia with 53 institutions in the top 200 is second only to China (71). Yet only seven Russian institutions make the top 50, fewer China (21), Brazil (10), and India (9).

India is the only nation without a university in the top 10, though five IIT make the top 20.


Top 10











































(c) []

“The development of Chinese higher education over the past 20 years has been nothing short of extraordinary,” adds Sowter. “Universities such as Tsinghua and Peking have now established themselves among the world’s major producers of scientific research.”

China has increased its research and development funding by an average of 18% per year since 2008. Its ‘C9 League’ institutions have been earmarked as challengers to the US ‘Ivy League’, and six of them make the top 10 in today’s ranking.

Ms Irani, India’s new minister for universities, has set a target of raising spending on education to 6% of GDP from less than 4% currently. She expects universities to improve and to align their courses closely with the jobs market.

Russia has announced plans to achieve five universities in the global top 100 by 2020, while India has ambitions to establish 14 world-class universities under the government’s “brain gain” policy.

“At a time when government spending is stalling in much of the West, the BRICS nations have set their sights on developing world-class universities sooner rather than later,” Sowter states.

Frost & Sullivan: Australian data centre services revenues to exceed $1.7 billion by 2020

leave a comment »

~Cloud computing will be a major contributor to growth


SYDNEY, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The Australian data centre services market recorded revenues of $698 million in 2013; a growth of 17.2 percent over 2012. Revenue from co-location services increased by almost 17 percent during 2013 and accounted for about 69 percent of total market revenue. Managed hosting services revenue grew by 18 percent.

Photo –

Frost & Sullivan’s Australian Data Centre Services Market 2014 report cites that there was just over 230,000 square metres of outsourced data centre space in Australia at the end of 2013, an increase of 16 percent from that available at the end of 2012. However, it is estimated that Australia still accounts for less than one percent of total global data centre space. “Given that Australian organisations prefer “on-shore” data centre services, there is certainly significant growth potential in the Australian data centre market,” said Phil Harpur, Senior Research Manager, Australia & New Zealand ICT Practice.

To some extent Australia’s data centre outsourcing levels are catching up with developed markets such as the USA, which has over 40 times the amount of outsourced data centre space currently available in Australia. Harpur added, “A growing proportion of Australian companies are outsourcing their data centre requirements, so both co-location and managed hosting services are expected to grow strongly over the next few years.” Australia’s data centre services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.9 percent from 2013 to 2020 to reach $1,737 million by 2020.

Frost & Sullivan’s latest survey of IT decision makers in Australia revealed that over three-quarters of organisations that utilise a data centre are using an outsourced provider to some extent – 51 percent use an outsourced provider, 24 percent an in-house facility and 25 percent use a combination of both.

Organisations outsource data centre hosting for a number of reasons, mainly because they believe that an outsourced facility has better security features, as well as hosting not being their core competency, superior disaster recovery, better availability and lower operating costs from outsourcing. The most significant challenge faced by Australian organisations running their own data centres are the lack of IT manpower or lack of skills or resources internally.

“Factors compelling demand for data centre services include increased adoption of high-bandwidth consumer applications such as social media and high definition video, greater consumption of cloud-based solutions, the increasing number of cloud service providers and the complexity in managing IT environments and end-points which is a barrier to organisations operating in-house (captive) data centres,” says Harpur.

Strong local demand for data centres has attracted investments from both local and global service providers, with significant new builds over the past few years in Australia. This additional capacity has pressured prices downward, further stimulating take-up of outsourced services.

Harpur elaborates, “This is particularly so for wholesale and co-location services, and is predominantly impacting the Sydney market, where there is a higher proportion of wholesale customers. However, over the next six to 12 months, there will be a slowdown in the addition of data centre capacity, and occupancy rates are likely to increase.”

Data centre services revenue growth will be strong over the next three to five years. Customers typically begin with co-location services, and then slowly migrate to managed hosting. The addition of capacity will be strong in 2014 and 2015. The total amount of outsourced data centre space available may approach 500,000 square metres by 2020.

Older data centres with legacy IT architecture and low power densities will struggle to remain competitive, and will need to refit their older facilities to meet current and future customer requirements. Smaller data centres will continue to consolidate, while larger, more efficient data centres will be built.

A growing trend is for telcos and managed IT service providers to acquire data centre space in carrier neutral providers to supplement their existing data centres. The main carrier neutral data centre service providers, especially NextDC, Global Switch, Equinix and Digital Reality, will be key drivers of growth.

All major carrier neutral providers have established a strong presence across Australia by acquiring prime real-estate in and around CBD areas. Large, multinational cloud providers are typically able to negotiate lower pricing leasing deals than smaller providers. However, carrier neutral providers can generally offset lower prices by attracting a significant number of additional smaller customers who will sign up for smaller but higher margin deals for rack space.

Embedded Systems Designers Gain Low-cost Prototyping Platform from New Raspberry Pi Compute Module Development Kit, Now Available for pre-order from RS Components

leave a comment »

Raspberry Pi Compute Module and the Raspberry Compute Module IO Development Board bundle provides users with a more flexible form factor for professional embedded applications

SINGAPORE, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has announced availability of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, the latest product to emerge from the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s development team. The Compute Module can initially be pre-ordered from RS as part of a development kit, bundled together with the Compute Board Module IO Development Board, which brings out all of the IO connectivity to form a prototyping platform for electronics design engineers.

Developed specifically for engineers in the professional market to create their own embedded system, theRaspberry Pi Compute Module fits into a standard DDR2 SODIMM socket and provides the same basic features of a standard Raspberry Pi, including a Broadcom BCM2835 processor and 512 Mbyte of RAM. It replaces the SD card with an onboard 4 Gbyte eMMC Flash device, and integrates everything on to a compact 67.6 x 30 mm board.

The Compute Module IO Development Board is a simple, open-source development board that the Compute Module plugs into and enables the designer to program the module’s Flash memory and easily access the processor interfaces via pin headers and flexi connectors, similar to the standard Raspberry Pi. It provides the necessary HDMI socket and USB connectors to create an entire system that can boot the user’s operating system and allow engineers to start designing with the Compute Module.

Eben Upton of the Raspberry Pi Foundation said, “The idea for the Compute Module came about from our observations of how a substantial number of industrial and commercial equipment designers were incorporating a Raspberry Pi into their end system. We wanted to find a solution that would provide them with all the computing resources of the Raspberry Pi in a compact format but leave the IO to the end system manufacturer.”

“Raspberry Pi is showing that it is going beyond its original concept as an educational programming tool to provide embedded engineers with a fast, affordable way to develop their embedded system” said Glenn Jarrett, Global Head of Product Marketing at RS Components. “We envisage that developers will accelerate the development process by tapping into the resources of the wide Raspberry Pi community that has grown up over the past few years.”

The Raspberry Pi Compute Module will be available as a standalone unit from autumn 2014.

The Raspberry Pi Compute Module Development Kit, incorporating the Compute Module and the Compute Module IO Development Board, is available for pre-order from RS globally priced at $229.

Frost & Sullivan: Heightened End-user Awareness Signals Growth in North American Generator Set Market

leave a comment »

— Growth in demand for both gas and diesel generator sets likely due to supportive regulations and infrastructure projects

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Severe and unpredictable power outages, increased power demand, and unreliable grid infrastructure in North America are prompting the need for generator sets in the region. The market received a boost from increased awareness among end users on the features and benefits of backup power systems as well as the best-suited generator sets for personal use.

Logo –

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the North American Generator Set Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $3.58 billion in 2013 and estimates this will reach $4.96 billion by 2018.

For complimentary access to more information to this research, please visit:

“With the active involvement of the Environmental Protection Agency in enforcing regulations in North America, the demand for natural gas generator sets expects to increase consistently in the region,” said Frost & Sullivan Energy & Environment Research Manager Lucrecia Gomez. “The adoption of diesel generator sets is also likely to rise owing to the continuous investments in infrastructure-related projects.”

However, due to high initial installation cost, many industrial and residential end users are reluctant to purchase generator sets. This is slowing market development as well as several housing projects. Market participants can attempt to overcome this by making the most of the growing need for backup power in commercial buildings.

The intense competition from cogeneration and renewable power generation technologies is yet another hurdle to market expansion, but participants can circumvent it by improving their value proposition and offering complete power generation solutions rather than individual products.

“Market participants are revamping their product lines and choosing strategic distribution channels to increase affordability,” noted Gomez.  “Sales support and a strong brand image will compliment these efforts and strengthen their presence in the North American generator set market.”

Lenovo’s Coming Disruption in Smartphones Highlighted in New Strategy Analytics Research

leave a comment »

– Lenovo Not Poised To Disrupt Smartphones? Think Again!

BOSTON, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Strategy Analytics’ latest research on Lenovo’s pending acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google says the merger could have a significant disruptive impact on the mobile market.  Using a proprietary methodology to measure disruption developed by the firm’s Strategic Competitor Intelligence (SCI) program, the disruptive measure earned a score of 87 in one key category, indicating a level of potential disruption categorized in the “Hurricane” range, a classification reserved for events that present a serious potential disruptive impact to the market.  SCI’s methodology measures disruption on six dimensions, including User Proposition, Business Model, Geography, Technology, Partners, and Finance, and scores them on three dimensions including hardware, software, and ecosystem.

Richard Guppy, SCI Executive Director, noted:  “Lenovo might be seen as just another smartphone vendor among many operating mainly or totally in the Chinese market – but it grew from a similar position in PCs, using IBM’s ‘Think’ brand to help take the world number one PC position recently.  I believe Lenovo is using that know-how to try a similar move in smartphones, with a potentially huge impact on market share and margins at a time when most vendors are already struggling for margin.”

Barry Gilbert, Vice President, said: “Lenovo is good at making smart acquisitions and at effectively integrating them – just consider IBM PCs and NEC’s PC business in Japan – and so it stands every chance of unlocking its growth potential in smartphones using the formidable assets of Motorola Mobility.”

The Disruptive Alert argues that there are different phases in consumer electronics markets, and the current phase of the Android market is perfect for Lenovo to make its late, accelerated entry, leveraging the Motorola acquisition.

Strategic Competitor Intelligence addresses the strategic positioning, goals, performance and SWOT of multiple key players in the Mobile ICT sector.
