Fusionex Honored as One of the Top Most Promising Big Data Providers in 2015

leave a comment »

LONDON/PRNewswire/ — California-based CIO Review has, in its Big Data Special publication, featured Fusionex International plc (Fusionex), a software vendor at the forefront of tackling Big Data challenges, as one of the Most Promising Big Data Solution Providers in the World for 2015.

The Intelligent Data Management Platform offered by London Stock Exchange listed Fusionex International plc, and how well it has helped clients around the world, has further cemented the software company’s stature within the international IT sphere, resulting in its being featured by the CIO Review.

CIO Review is a technology magazine which explores revolutionary solutions that power forward-thinking businesses. CIO Review notes the uphill task of analyzing data and converting it into useful information. The prominent tech magazine recognized how critical it is for Chief Information Officers (CIOs) to select the best vendors that are at the forefront of tackling Big Data issues.

After the initial teething period of appreciating the value of Big Data and being convinced to take advantage of it, companies the world over are now struggling to utilize Big Data Analytics to make effective and lasting improvements to their work processes in order to derive tangible value that can propel their businesses to greater heights.

Fusionex’s user friendly solution, Fusionex Insights (GIANT), was identified because of its ability to offer businesses the opportunity to visualize and understand their data better in a user-friendly, humanized manner. Providing a streamlined approach to processing data, GIANT uses a “plug-and-play” method linking multiple data sources without requiring additional software.

With its ability to consolidate myriads of data, Fusionex GIANT crunches the numbers and provides its business users the results of variables such as the identifying of customer purchasing trends, avoidable costs due to wastage, and understanding how location and seasonal factors affect one’s business.

To help CIO Review achieve their objective of identifying high-performing Big Data solution providers, a panel of notable chief executive officers (CEOs), CIOs and analysts were identified to facilitate in this exercise alongside the CIO Review editorial board.

The CIO Review features companies and how their products work in the real world, so that its readers can gain an extensive understanding on the relevant solutions and how they stack up against the competition.

Low productivity and ineffective processes can lead to an escalation in costs while the slow generation of reports can result in missed business opportunities. This is problematic especially in today’s fast-moving world of ubiquitous internet connections.

All these are looking to be a thing of the past as Fusionex GIANT offers the most comprehensive Business Intelligence and Big Data Analytics product in the market. With a simple-to-use drag-and-drop feature, people of all skill levels are able to use GIANT to analyse their data.

The ability for ordinary business users to access such a quantity of information in such a user-friendly package cannot be understated.

Per the CIO Review, “It has become critical for the CIOs to choose proper technology and select best vendors that are at the forefront of effectively tackling the impediments across the Big Data realm. …We believe this information will help you while you make Big Data strategies for your organization.”

MIMOS launches made-in-Malaysia PMSM Motion Controller IC Solution

leave a comment »

-A fully hardware-Implemented Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM) Motion Controller Integrated Circuit Solution
-Energy efficient controller for use in hybrid cars, air-conditioners, automatic gates, elevator, conveyor belts, washing machines, printers, and more
-Ease of product system development
-Fast to market
-Facilitate better cost structure

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia /PRNewswire/ — Malaysia’s national research and development agency in information and communications technology, MIMOS, together with two local collaborators, My Technology and Emerald Systems, has revealed a new integrated circuit (IC) solution that can efficiently control and manage the performance of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM).

Edward V. Bautista, Jr., Senior Staff Engineer (MIMOS) showcasing the GMC, to Datuk Panglima Madius Tangau, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation. Looking on is Dato' Sri Mustapa Mohamed The Minister of International Trade and Industry (on the right).

The MCGP021 or Green Motion Controller (GMC) would potentially replace existing controllers for PMSM motor. This product would significantly reduce the time taken to market for existing PMSM motor solution designers.

“With firmware and assembly code requirement removed from the process, motor solutions designers will have more time to focus on other aspects of the system while gaining better cost structure,” MIMOS R&D Director for Nano and Semiconductor Technology, Mohd Shahiman Sulaiman said.

“The solution can be used in hybrid cars, air conditioners, automatic gates, washing machines, printers, conveyor belts, lifts and escalators.

“The PMSM motor has a huge market potential.  With PMSM motor being used in a large number of consumer appliances, economic opportunity for GMC is tremendous,” he added.

Mohd Shahiman said local and International distributors for this product have been identified.

Technical Notes

While traditional solutions for controlling Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM) motor use software written for a microcontroller or microprocessor, MIMOS’ MCGP02I motion controller solution uses a new design approach in which complex mathematical calculations required for Field Oriented Control (FOC) of PMSM motors are directly implemented using specialised logic gates into an integrated circuit (IC).

A PMSM is a rotating electric machine which uses permanent magnets in its rotor whereby an alternating current flow in its stator windings would generate a rotating magnetic field to cause the rotor to rotate.  PMSM motors can be found in consumer appliances such as air-conditioners, washing machines, printers and commercial products such as lifts, elevators and conveyor belts.

The FOC method is the most efficient control method to squeeze maximum performance out of the PMSM motor. This method produces reduced torque ripple resulting in smoother motor performance and quieter operation. There is also no need to write firmware to implement the complex FOC algorithm, thus total development cost of the system is greatly reduced.  The programmability of all control parameters enables maximum flexibility and quick design of control systems.

The MCGP02I comes in a 40-pin small footprint QFN package with an integrated on-chip oscillator, ADCs, voltage references and regulator. With the MCGP02I, the complete control system can be constructed with minimal number of components and occupies a small PCB area. The MCGP02I is compact, economical and can be implemented without the need for complicated firmware or assembly code.

This solution is expected to increase the application of PMSM motor development, especially for Small and Medium Enterprises. With PMSM motors being used in a variety of applications, business opportunities for this solution are tremendous.

MIMOS is Malaysia’s Premier Applied Research and Development Centre in Information and Communications Technology, Industrial Electronics Technology and Nano-Semiconductor Technology. As a strategic agency under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), MIMOS contributes to raising Malaysia’scompetitiveness by pioneering market creation for Malaysian technopreneurs through patentable technology platforms, products and solutions.
