Carl Lukach, Chief Financial Officer at Univar, was the first issuer client to use the new Issuer View mobile application as part its $770MM IPO last year.  Issuer View was provided by Deutsche Bank, an Ipreo Equity Bookbuild customer.  “We worked so hard on our IPO roadshow, and Issuer View made a direct visible connection between our one-on-one meetings and the order book,” said Lukach.

Highlights of the Issuer View mobile app include:

  • Updated design for truly mobile look and feel and functionality
  • Real-time view of roadshow schedule and deal progress via detailed order book

The Issuer View mobile application is the newest module in Ipreo’s Equity Capital Markets platform.  The release of the new Issuer View mobile app is just one indication of the significant expansion that Ipreo’s Equity Capital Markets business has seen over the past year. Currently 83.5% of equity new issuance (including IPOs, follow-ons and convertible bonds) in the U.S. is run over Ipreo’s systems, with strong momentum in Europe and Asia as well. The most recent addition to Ipreo’s client roster is Goldman Sachs who recently signed an agreement with Ipreo to implement its equity bookbuild software globally.  Goldman expects to roll it out in 2017.

“We continue to invest heavily in our new-issuance systems to ensure we not only keep up with the increasing scale and complexity of deals but also bring innovative enhancements to market that facilitate our clients’ workflow and communications,” said Bill Sherman, EVP and Managing Director of the Global Markets Group at Ipreo. “The growth we’re seeing in both the number of clients and the volume of issuance on our systems is a clear indication of our momentum.”

ABI Research Predicts Autonomous Parking Technology Revenues to Grow by 29.5% CAGR within Next Decade

leave a comment »

LONDON /PRNewswire/ — ABI Research, the leader in transformative technology innovation market intelligence, forecasts shipments of new cars featuring autonomous parking technologies to grow at 35% CAGR between 2016 and 2026 and for revenues to likewise show growth at 29.5% CAGR.

Phases of Autonomous Parking; Source: ABI Research

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20151014/276887LOGO

ABI Research identifies three phases of autonomous parking, with each successive stage set to gradually displace the former and all three coexisting to some degree over the next decade. Ultimately, technology will reach a point in which the car parks itself entirely, with no driver assistance or presence within the car required. In Phase 1, the car will provide steering assistance with the driver still inside the vehicle and in control. Phase 2 shows autonomous parking with the driver outside the vehicle but still in control, and Phase 3 introduces autonomous valet parking in which the driver leaves the vehicle at the entrance of a car park. The car then parks itself and waits for the driver to summon it when it’s time to leave.

“Passive assistance from ultrasonic sensors and exterior cameras are becoming standard features in most new car models in developed regions,” says James Hodgson, Research Analyst at ABI Research. “As more manufacturers turn toward more autonomous parking solutions, OEMs continue to heavily push for consumer education on the systems’ safety benefits and added convenience, to convince them of the value of the concept.”

The American Automobile Association (AAA) recently published survey results that suggest that 80% of American drivers believe their own parking abilities to be adequate. Only 25% of respondents would trust a self-parking system to replace them in the parking maneuver.

“The market could see a spike in consumer adoption of autonomous parking technology if drivers are drawn by correlated lower insurance costs,” continues Hodgson. “Given the empirical evidence demonstrating the superiority of autonomous parking, cars fitted with such technologies may yield lower insurance premiums, as the market experienced with other ADASs, such as autonomous emergency braking.”

Phase 2 technologies are evident in the January 2016 launch of the Tesla OTA Summon auto park feature, as well as BMW’s recent launch of Remote Control Parking on flagship 7 Series in certain regions. While current Phase 2 technologies are limited in ability, as current car systems can only move the car forward and backward at a distance of a few meters and cannot turn the car, it is an important step forward in that it successfully parks the car with the driver removed.

“As the market moves toward the new future of driverless vehicles, parking will remain an important function, but the evolution could bring about big change,” concludes Hodgson. “Car parks will theoretically not need to be close to the driver’s final destination once cars can park themselves without driver observation or control. This could signify larger social advantages for crowded areas, as inner cities may soon be able to reclaim parking spaces for other purposes. At the same time, the need for parking spaces may ultimately disappear altogether as shared driverless vehicles drop off and pick up customers in a near continuous way.”

These findings are part of ABI Research’s Automotive Safety and Autonomous Driving Service (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/service/safety-and-security-telematics/), which includes research reports, market data, insights, and competitive assessments.

Strategy Analytics: Global Business Smartphone Sales Will Grow to 606 Million in 2020

leave a comment »

-Corporate Liable Device Growth Will Outpace Personal Liable Device Growth Worldwide as Many Companies Continue to Struggle with Developing Comprehensive BYOD Policies and Strategies

BOSTON /PRNewswire/ — According to the Strategy Analytics Mobile Workforce Strategies (MWS) latest report, “Global Business Smartphone Shipment Forecast Q4 2015,” the global Business Smartphone sales will grow from 392 million units in 2015 to 606 million in 2020. Corporate liable device growth will outpace personal liable device growth worldwide of the next five years at 9.2% CAGR, as many companies continue to struggle with developing comprehensive BYOD policies and strategies, offsetting the trends in BYOD over the last several years.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130207/NE56457LOGO-b

“However, BYOD volume will continue to account for the majority of the global business smartphone devices into the future, although corporate liable volume will grow over the next couple of years at nearly a double digit growth rate. China and the United States will be the largest business smartphone country markets in 2016, accounting for half (50%) of worldwide business smartphone sales,” said Gina Luk, Senior Analyst of Mobile Workforce Strategies and author of the report.

“By 2020, nearly half of the smartphone’s sold annually in North America will be personally owned and used for business purposes at some level. Asia Pacific’s BYOD sales will be over a quarter of its total annual volume, but will be nearly three times the unit volume in North America. Cost savings and allowing users their own device choice are the top reasons employees are allowed to purchase and use their own mobile devices according to Strategy Analytics’ most recent enterprise survey,” added Andrew Brown, Executive Director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics.

Binary Tree Announces SMART Directory Sync 4.5

leave a comment »

-New version features improved performance with support for multi-threading

KENDALL PARK, N.J. /PRNewswire/ — Binary Tree, the SMART Migration Company, today announced version 4.5 of SMART Directory Sync. This product is a powerful, scalable and cost-effective way for enterprises to establish and maintain integration between multiple Active Directory environments. It’s the product of choice to synchronize multiple instances of Active Directory or to synchronize Active Directory with a Domino Directory.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160104/318869LOGO

Benefits of Version 4.5

  • Provides true multi-threaded support
  • Provides lightning-fast results by searching for matching criteria in a single LDAP query
  • Syncs user and group objects in parallel
  • Improves performance by searching for group members in SQL before Active Directory
  • Supports Microsoft SQL 2014

About SMART Directory Sync

SMART Directory Sync helps organizations synchronize multiple instances of Active Directory or synchronize Active Directory with a Domino Directory. To start, the tool makes both directories aware of each other. It then synchronizes all mail-enabled objects— users, contacts, distribution lists, shared mailboxes, passwords and much more. This best-in-class product is flexible enough to cover virtually every directory synchronization scenario in large, complex environments.

Gary Steere, Microsoft Office Servers and Services MVP, Certified Master, and Director of Product Strategy at Binary Tree, states, “In addition to supporting Active Directory migrations and Exchange migrations, there are a couple of other use cases for SMART Directory Sync. For example, you can use it to make substantial changes in a staging Active Directory area without affecting production. Or you can use it to provide a unified, synchronized global address book of users who work in different public sectors or government agencies but who need to communicate as a unified entity.”

Unlike other available products, SMART Directory Sync 4.5 is highly functional, flexible, and maintains a track record of scaling to meet the largest directories in the world while producing unparalleled performance, with an easy-to-use user interface that suits a variety of organizational uses.
