-Reducing IT costs for Microsoft® Windows® Application Delivery on both physical devices and VDI
-Self-service app store-like catalog streamlines application delivery to end users

IRVINE, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Numecent®, a cloud software and services company providing application delivery solutions and platforms, today announced that its Cloudpaging technology has been further expanded with a product focused on enterprise organizations. Cloudpaging for Enterprise gives IT organizations a turn-key self-service app store-like catalog for delivering applications to end users, while saving significant time and reducing costs that would otherwise be spent on manual deployment of applications.

Even with legacy application virtualization technologies, organizations spend a significant amount of time manually deploying software that is incompatible with such products. Cloudpaging for Enterprise supports 99.9% of applications, the highest success rate of any application delivery technology. With Cloudpaging for Enterprise, the costs normally associated with onboarding new users, deploying new applications, delivering application updates and other add, move, or change events can be greatly reduced. Technologies like virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) address delivering a corporate desktop image but don’t provide a single delivery method for applications to users on both VDI and users on physical devices.

“Helping enterprise customers extract IT cost savings while streamlining how applications are delivered is a key benefit to deploying Cloudpaging for Enterprise,” said Tom Lagatta, President and CEO of Numecent. “Our enterprise offering augments whitelabeling of Cloudpaging to ISV’s and Cloud Service Providers and ensures end customers can deploy across Physical, VDI and BYOD users today.”

Numecent will be working with distribution partners globally to provide availability of Cloudpaging for Enterprise to system integrators (SI’s), value added resellers (VAR’s), and managed service providers. Focused verticals for Cloudpaging for Enterprise include Engineering, Banking and Finance, Healthcare, and Higher Education.

Numecent’s Cloudpaging technology delivers millions of application sessions annually and has delivered more than 10,000 Cloudified applications, including CAD,CAM, PLM, DCC and specialized applications, to many enterprises around the world, bringing savings to IT departments while simplifying on-boarding for new end users and reducing the IT impact for delivering new applications and updates.

Linde facilitates photovoltaic cell capacity expansion in South East Asia

leave a comment »

-Linde has proven expertise in materials sourcing, logistics and permitting
-Linde is the strategic gases and chemical partner for South East Asian photovoltaic cell manufacturers

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Major photovoltaic (PV) cell manufacturers in South East Asia are expanding capacity and are partnering with technology company The Linde Group to quickly establish the reliable, high-quality supply chain they need as they extend material supply lines beyond their home countries. A case in point: Linde has been awarded multiple wins of gas and chemical supply for a number of world leading PV cell manufacturers’ first plants in South East Asia. Linde not only provides materials, but also regional expertise in the form of engineering solutions and permitting guidance to deliver high-value advantages to customers in this competitive space.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130530/NY23246LOGO-b

Consolidation has quickly turned to expansion in the PV industry, and cell manufacturers are taking advantage of growth markets, local incentives and favorable trade terms by adding capacity in Thailand, Malaysia, India and other regional locations. In addition to building greenfield factories, manufacturers are faced with creating international material supply chains, navigating permitting and licensing in a new country, and building gas and chemical distribution systems, all of which are core competencies of Linde.

Linde offers a complete portfolio of gas and chemical products required for photovoltaic processes. Bulk gases used in the manufacture of PV cells are nitrogen (N2), hydrogen (H2), oxygen (O2), argon (Ar), and in some cases, helium (He). Specialty gases used in PV manufacture are silane (SiH4), ammonia (NH3), nitrous oxide (N2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), hydrogen fluoride (HF), phosphine (PH3) and diborane (B2H6). Operating with its subsidiary Asia Union Electronic Chemical Corporation (AUECC), which has manufacturing sites in mainland Chinaand Taiwan, Linde also provides a full range of wet chemicals, including high-purity aqueous acids, bases and etchants.

Andreas Weisheit, Head of Linde Electronics explains “Linde is the leading gas and chemical provider in the South East Asia region, with a long history in each of the individual countries in which we operate. Project windows are very short and customers need a materials supplier who can successfully execute sourcing, logistics and engineering solutions on aggressive timelines. Being close to our customers with the right resources means that Linde already has a multi-functional team in place on day one, and can help them ramp production as quickly as possible. Because of all we have to offer, we have become partners with PV manufacturers who have an immediate need for a well-functioning, reliable supply chain.”

To safely, store, handle, connect and distribute the gases and chemicals used in PV manufacture, detailed design considerations, which include local and global standards, and legal legislation, which is different in each particular country, must be taken into account. Linde experience with local permitting and licensing has benefitted customers needing to minimize their project timelines. Design codes, safety quantities, safety distances, package sizing, material handling techniques and emergency response accessibility are all considered when designing facilities and associated equipment in gas and chemical, source to point-of-use supply schemes.

Linde has the expertise to fully design greenfield gas and chemical facilities, including BSGS (bulk specialty gas systems), abatement and distribution piping networks, chemical CDM (chemical distribution modules) and specialized co-axial distribution piping. The Linde Engineering services division is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, supports Linde locally and globally and is currently active in executing multiple projects throughout the region. Linde can offer all molecules, full turnkey installation and all associated equipment and a complete point-of-use guarantee for all gases and chemicals used in the PV process.

About The Linde Group

In the 2015 financial year, The Linde Group generated revenue of USD 19.7 bn (EUR 17.944 bn) , making it one of the leading gases and engineering companies in the world, with approximately 65,000 employees working in more than 100 countries worldwide. The strategy of The Linde Group is geared towards long-term profitable growth and focuses on the expansion of its international business with forward-looking products and services. Linde acts responsibly towards its shareholders, business partners, employees, society and the environment in every one of its business areas, regions and locations across the globe.

ABI Research Expects Cloud Computing and Big Data to Drive Global Threat and Vulnerability Management Market to $8.6 Billion by 2020

leave a comment »

LONDON /PRNewswire/ — ABI Research, the leader in transformative technology innovation market intelligence, expects cloud computing and big data to drive the global threat and Vulnerability Management (VM) market to increase from its current standing at $5.8 billion in revenue in 2015 to $8.6 billion by 2020. Nefarious security attacks are driving market growth and subsequently increasing the number of VM solutions available to protect people and organizations. As vulnerability assessment (VA) is a key component of a VM program, ABI Research calculates total revenues generated by the VA market to reach $1.4 billion by the end of 2016 and grow to$2.1 billion by 2020.

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

“There is increasing market demand for vulnerability management solutions, like the IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform, Barracuda Vulnerability Manager, AlienVault Unified Security Management solution, and Rapid7 Nexpose 6.0,” says Monolina Sen, Senior Analyst at ABI Research. “The ideal VM solution is one that integrates well with third-party technologies and includes capabilities for asset management, configuration management, patch management, VA, remediation, reporting, and monitoring.”

Yet, as evident from the plethora of security incidents and privacy regulations present in the industry, there is a need to design, develop, and deploy more secure software with capabilities that go beyond the scope of traditional VM solutions. Companies working to fill this void include Cigital, IBM, Prevoty, and Veracode, among others. ABI Research calculates the overall software security testing market to grow to $6.9 billion by 2020.

“Currently most enterprises lack the proper skillset, management funding, or support to build comprehensive, targeted threat and vulnerability management solutions,” concludes Sen. “Incorporating Agile methodologies into software development process can have a big impact on the overall success of an organization’s software security program, as well as the interim usefulness of development and investment.”

These findings are part of ABI Research’s Cybersecurity Technologies Service (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/service/cybersecurity-technologies/), which includes research reports, market data, insights, and competitive assessments.

Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Vomaris with 2016 New Product Innovation Award

leave a comment »

-Electroceutical Wound Healing with Advanced Microcurrent Technology™ seen as Major Advancement in Wound Care, Providing Non-pharmacologic Solution to Antimicrobial Efficacy

TEMPE, Arizona /PRNewswire/ — Vomaris Innovations, Inc., a company specializing in electroceutical solutions for the wound care market and beyond, announced today that the company’s Advanced Microcurrent Technology™ (AMT) platform has earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2016 Best Practices Award for New Product Innovation for pioneering a battery-in-a-bandage technology that utilizes electrical energy for wound healing.

For the New Product Innovation Award, Frost & Sullivan analysts followed a 10-step process to research, identify and recognize best practices.

Combined with its demonstrated efficacy against a broad-spectrum of microbes including drug-resistant1 and biofilm-forming pathogens2 and its ability to enhance cellular migration3, AMT creates an optimal environment for wound healing.  This positions Vomaris strongly to lead in the $3+ billion Advanced Wound Care Market.

“Vomaris has been committed to meeting the evolving challenges in today’s wound care market, including multi-drug resistance and surgical site infections. We are proud to deliver a scientifically and clinically validated, non-pharmacologic solution to reduce risk of infection while promoting wound healing,” commented Michael Nagel, President and CEO of Vomaris Innovations, Inc. “Recognition by Frost & Sullivan for our advances in electroceutical solutions affirms our efforts.”

“By mimicking the body’s physiological electrical signal generated during wound healing that directs cell migration and re-epithelialization, Vomaris electroceutical wound dressings provide an innovative healing solution, said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Debarati Sengupta. “Interestingly, no bacteria are known to be resistant to electricity, indicating that Advanced Microcurrent Technology™ as an innovative solution is here to stay.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the potential it offers customers for increased ROI, which, in turn, improves customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

Athlete Known as “Olympic Picasso” Launches Effort to Grow Olympian/Artist Group

leave a comment »

-Elite group of athlete/artists aims to double its members

FORT MYERS, Fla. /PRNewswire/ — Art of the Olympians Organization (AOTO), an international-based group of elite Olympic athletes-turned-artists, has launched a global membership initiative to double its roster in the next six months. The renowned nonprofit group hopes to grow worldwide to expand its global citizenry programs through Olympian and Paralympian athletics, arts and culture teachings.

“It’s a very ambitious goal,” says AOTO Executive Director Roald Bradstock, an Olympic javelin thrower and artist who recently was interviewed on CNN about his career and his goals for the organization. “Our target is to at least double our current roster of Olympian and Paralympian artists. It took several years to bring together 29 Olympians. We want to get our roster to as close to 60 Olympians if we can. We believe we can reach this goal by getting the word out globally through the traditional media and social media channels.”

Bradstock, a two time British Olympian and former world record holder turned painter is known as “The Olympic Picasso.” This past fall, he was appointed by parent organization, the Al Oerter Foundation (AOF), to lead AOTO’s expansion effort.

AOTO was founded in 2006 by Oerter, four-time consecutive Olympic discus champion. The group started with 14 Olympic athletes from seven different countries with 19 Olympic medals among them. Aside from their athletic prowess, they are also champions of the visual arts, excelling in a wide range of mediums including clay, acrylics, oils, watercolors, fabrics and paper. Since he’s taken the reins, Bradstock hopes to broaden the organization beyond the visual arts to include Olympians and Paralympians who are accomplished musicians, singers, dancers, actors, poets, authors and much more.

“Our goal is to promote the ideals of work ethic and mind, body and spirit through the arts,” Bradstock said. “Art is more than creating a painting and hanging it on a wall. It’s a way of thinking and living. It’s about connecting, communicating and a way to express who we are. I need everyone out there to help me find these Olympian and Paralympian artists. Call me, text me, send me an email or send a smoke signal to get in touch. We want to create a movement here, and the only way to do that is to get more people involved.”

AOTO has moved away from its original Fort Myers museum and gallery office setting and now features itself and its programs via a virtual and mobile platform. Over the past 10 years, AOTO has had exhibitions at the United Nations and at three Olympic Games: the 2008 Beijing games, the 2010 Vancouver games and the 2012 London games. They’ve also had their artwork shown for a month on the giant screen in Times Square. The group was also the subject of an award-winning documentary, hosted by 1968 Olympic Figure Skating ChampionPeggy Fleming, who is also one of AOTO’s artists.

Olympians and Paralympians interested in joining AOTO’s world-wide program efforts are asked to contact the organization via email at info@artoftheolympians.org  or contact them at (+1) 770-882-7799 (EST/U.S.A.)

About Art of The Olympians (AOTO): Art of The Olympians Organization’s programs and platform promote the Olympic ideals and unite the Olympic and Paralympic movement through inclusive educational, cultural and collaborative programs, exhibitions and projects. AOTO is a program run by the Al Oerter Foundation (AOF).
