KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Blancco, the global leader in data erasure and computer reuse solutions, is helping more organizations than ever avoid costly penalties from data leaks. Using reporting solutions available with Blancco products, organizations automatically receive tamper-proof evidence for auditors that data has been removed from each IT asset.

“Blancco’s digitally signed erasure reports provide critical details as to when, how and by whom the erasure was done, as well as the asset serial number and hardware condition,” said Vaisanen.  “With third-party approved erasure processes and detailed reporting, Blancco’s certified data erasure products ensure both regulatory compliance and peace of mind for organizations throughout the public and private sectors.”

Frost & Sullivan on In-Car Infotainment: Are US and European Customers ready to Embrace Telematics and HMI Features?

leave a comment »

— A live one hour teleconference on connected car systems market will identify whether car buyers are willing to invest in a new quality of in-car entertainment

LONDON, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Smart phones and devices have been omnipresent for half a decade now. As a logical consequence, the car manufacturing industry caught up by allocating a smart device-friendly in-car environment. Even though OEM infotainment systems have evolved in terms of technology and features, customer choices still point towards rather simple smart phone-focussed solutions.

Frost & Sullivan interviewed 1,600 customers in the United States and 2,800 customers across Europe, including the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, and Russia, on their interests and willingness to pay for in-car infotainment, telematics and HMI features. One of the main objectives of the study was to understand the importance of these features from a vehicle purchase perspective, as well as the current availability and usage levels of different features. The results will be presented during an online teleconference on July 9, 2014, at 4:00pm BST / 5:00pm CET / 11:00am EDT / 10:00am CDT.

“The connected car market is evolving at a pace much higher than the traditional automotive industry,” states Frost & Sullivan research manager Chandrasekar. “Consumers sadly are not in the centre of this evolution. Over 34 percent of said interviewees were interested in steering wheel controls as an input HMI feature, which marks the highest figure in the survey. The second most appealing feature was wireless charging at 27 percent. Interestingly, over 15 percent of embedded navigation owners in the United States surveyed in the research reported they prefer using smart phone apps for navigation largely because they find the content trustworthy and the app easy to use”.

The key objectives of this research were not only to understand the importance of infotainment and telematics features in the overall decision of purchasing a vehicle but also to grasp patterns and trends in regards to the adoption and use of various infotainment and telematics, navigation, and safety features by international consumers. Also, identifying the profiles and segments of those drivers who have a similar disposition towards the adoption of vehicle technologies, navigation, and infotainment features, marked an objective of this study.

Says Chandrasekar: “All of the aforementioned figures and results are alarming indicators that the automotive community is doing a pretty bad job of educating consumers about the latest and greatest in technology innovations”.

The briefing will be critical for those who want to understand the various different meta levels involved in this matter: Customer awareness, satisfaction levels, willingness to pay and most importantly the amount of budget consumers allocate towards the aforementioned innovative features when considering the purchase of a new car. Also, the study contains crucial information as to the packaging and marketing strategies of infotainment and telematics features.

The event will be also of value to various teams at vehicle manufacturers ranging from product planning to product marketing, as well as Tier 1 companies, and companies involved in specific technology areas such as smart phone application developers.

If you would like to participate in this complimentary web conference, please email Julian Borchert, Corporate Communications at Julian.Borchert@frost.com, with your full contact details. Upon receipt of the above information, a registration link will be e-mailed to you. You may also register to receive a recorded version of the briefing at anytime by submitting the aforementioned contact details.

BIEL/BIENNE, Switzerland /PRNewswire/ —

The Evolution of an Icon

EBEL is proud to introduce the new Wave – a collection of modern timepieces that retain the legendary DNA of the iconic wave bracelet, while reenergizing its dynamic design elements to create a more contemporary look and feel. The new Wave is an evolutionary reinterpretation of EBEL’s Sport Classic watch collection which launched in 1977 and was one of the most widely recognized design statements throughout the watch industry. With its perfectly integrated case and bracelet and distinctive wave-shaped links, the iconic EBEL Sport Classic radiated a sense of movement and incredibly supple feel – these design elements immediately became an EBEL brand signature.

“When EBEL first launched the Sport Classic in the 70’s, it took the daring step of introducing a design unlike any other on the market,” said Mary Leach, Chief Marketing Officer, Movado Group, Inc. “While several of its innovative features seemed too avant-garde, this collection had a revolutionary effect on the watchmaking world and is still a brand icon today.

-Academy to provide comprehensive training to oil and gas organisations across the Asia-Pacific region to achieve high productivity

SINGAPOREJuly 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Petrofac Training Services, part of Petrofac, the international service provider to the oil and gas industry, and ESI International, the world’s leading project management training company, today announced a collaboration to establish the Petrofac Project Management Academy (PPMA), which aims to provide high quality training with a project management focus to help achieve high productivity and skill enhancement to oil and gas organisations across the Asia-Pacific region.

The convergence of these factors has created an increased demand for specialised training to increase productivity and efficiency, and reduce cost in project planning and delivery.”

Raed S. Haddad, Managing Director for Asia Pacific, ESI International, said:  “Against a testing industry backdrop where highly-skilled people are much sought-after, we are delighted to partner with such an industry leader as Petrofac to create an enhanced learning platform created especially for those in the oil and gas and petrochemical sectors. Petrofac Project Management Academy will fill an existing void in the industry by providing comprehensive training to related organisations across the region which will positively impact productivity, efficiency and cost.”

The Petrofac Project Management Academy (PPMA) will provide comprehensive training solutions for the industry workforce with courses covering Project Management, Business Analysis, Business Skills and Contract Management.

“Oud Oil” by Asia Plantation Capital Star of the 2014 World Perfumery Congress

leave a comment »

SINGAPOREJune 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — At one of the largest and most important events in the perfume industry – the World Perfumery Congress – a biannual event held this year in Deauville, France, the team from Asia Plantation Capital Distilleries and their fragrance partner Fragrance Du Bois stood out.

It was the mysterious and rare, pure Oud oil, produced on sustainable plantations owned and managed by Asia Plantation Capital, that put a spotlight on the brand. Oud oil has a near mythical status in the world of haute perfumery and fast-growing demand from the cosmetics industries.

“The latest production of Oud oils by Asia Plantation Capital Distilleries has been honed and refined over years of research and development to provide the fragrance industry with a natural sustainable Oud oil of a consistent quality and standard,” says veteran perfume industry expert Simon French. “Reaction from international perfumers at the show has been incredible. It’s clear the company’s new oil production techniques are paying off and producing an oil with a less animalic note and softer tones, which makes it much better to work with for perfumers and is also longer lasting.”

Visitors to the company’s stand included leading companies in the fragrance industry and perfumers, as well as the biggest companies in the Oud market from the Middle East, rating the company’s oils of a much higher quality than what they have been offered in the market.

Also showcased were exquisite perfumes created by Fragrance Du Bois and its team of international perfumers where all perfumes were formulated using the 100% guaranteed pure oil to help showcase its diversity to other perfumers and fragrance houses. One of Du Bois’ finest fragrance, Sahraa Oud, created by one of Du Bois’perfumers, Francois Merle-Baudoin, was shortlisted in the top 10 fragrances by an independent perfume house at The Art and Olfaction Awards in Los Angeles recently.

This significant difference with the pure, natural Oud oil produced by Asia Plantation Capital is a result of working with the leading academics in the industry and industrial production line experts to develop the detailed “soil to oil program” which is at the core Asia Plantation Capital’s sustainable agarwood plantations. Every stage of the process from initial plantation stock and land selection, to the inoculation techniques and end processing systems have been subjected to rigorous scientific analyses and review by the SKP team.

This product offers sustainable credentials and Asia Plantation Capital supplies all its Oud oil under its own trademarked brand “OuDubois,” simply translated as Oud of wood; this brand is now the company’s seal of authenticity. Each 1kg bottle is sealed at the source, and the age and planting date of the trees planted and when it is harvested is recorded, guaranteeing traceability on demand. Presently for every tree harvested, Asia Plantation Capital is currently planting at least 20 new trees as part of their sustainable agarwood plantation model to ensure the continuation of future sustainable supply. Additionally each oil comes with CITES certification guaranteeing the sustainability of the oil produced and ensuring it is legal, as well as IFRA certification by leading perfume and cosmetics company ABP Australia and independent University MSDS Analysis report.

Company spokesperson Mohammed Jaan said, “At the end of the show, the Asia Plantation Capital Distilleries team received over 140 serious trade buying enquiries from around the world, and with confirmed orders for the companies, next 12 months production already in place. Getting your hands on any of this incredible oil is the only thing not guaranteed by us!”

CNNIC and IP Mirror Launches Chinese versions of “.COM” and “.NET”

leave a comment »

-New top-level domains to distinguish companies with Chinese Internet-users.

BEIJINGJuly 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) prepares to launch “.Gongsi” (“.COM” in Chinese) and “.Wangluo” (“.NET” in Chinese), new Chinese-language top-level domains with IP Mirror. As Chinese equivalents of “.COM” and “.NET”, businesses interested in China will find them valuable. Before the domains are open for public registration, trademark holders are encouraged to register during the Sunrise or Pioneer Periods to ensure protection for their trademark rights.

Gongsi” and “Wangluo” are Chinese phonetic spellings to mean “Company” and “Network”. Refer to the image for the actual Chinese characters of these domains.

“Gongsi” and “Wangluo” are Chinese phonetic spellings to mean “Company” and “Network”. Refer to the image for the actual Chinese characters of these domains

As China has the largest Internet user community, Chinese top-level domains are believed to embody increasing market value. Having a domain name consisting of “.Gongsi” or “.Wangluo” makes businesses more credible and accessible in the Chinese market. Sohu, a premier Chinese web portal has fully utilized “.Gongsi” and “.Wangluo” as part of its 2014 World Cup marketing initiative. Mr. Zhang Chao Yang, Sohu’s CEO explains: “Unlike previous ones, this World Cup belongs to mobile devices and video-sharing websites.” Sohu’s Chinese-domain websites — “Sohu Shijiebei.Wangluo” (http://xn--rhqt05c8kc46p54c.xn--io0a7i) (“Sohu World Cup”) and “Baxi Shijiebei.Wangluo” (http://xn--rhqr00bc8gunoxzx.xn--io0a7i) (“Brazil World Cup”), have enabled Chinese Internet-users to quickly locate Sohu’s World Cup coverage on the go; they make a unique statement about the company itself and its willingness to connect with its customers. A domain name with “.Gongsi” or “.Wangluo” gives anyone interested in the Chinese market a competitive edge.

To protect the rights of trademark holders, early registration periods of “.Gongsi“, “.Wangluo” are divided into three consecutive stages. During the Sunrise Period (starting July 1, 2014), registration is only open to Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) registrants. In the subsequent Pioneer Period (from July 31, 2014), non-TMCH trademark holders registered at governmental agencies are eligible. These first-come-first-served priority registrations aid trademark owners in brand protection. In the following Landrush Period (from August 21, 2014), customers are encouraged to bid for their preferred domain names should they be contested.
