The first Oracle Cloud Application that will be offered to Fujitsu customers under the joint offering is Oracle HCM Cloud. As part of the agreement, Fujitsu will implement Oracle HCM Cloud to gain unprecedented insight into its workforce throughout the company’s worldwide network of offices.

“We at Fujitsu support the digital transformation of our customers, and aim to contribute to optimized customer systems and business growth with the roll out of our Digital Business Platform MetaArc,” said Shingo Kagawa, SEVP, Head of Digital Services Business & CTO, Fujitsu Limited. “In particular, we offer the core cloud service on MetaArc, K5, which addresses systems of engagement (SoE)(*1) and systems of record (SoR)(*2). Oracle is a leader in Japan’s database market segment and possesses strong capabilities in the SoR domain. Now, as we look to strengthen MetaArc and K5, taking part in this strategic alliance with Oracle will work to meet the cloud needs of our customers.”

“In order to realize the full business potential of cloud computing, organizations need secure, reliable and high-performing cloud solutions,” said Edward Screven, Chief Corporate Architect, Oracle. “For over three decades, Oracle and Fujitsu have worked together using our combined R&D, product depth and global reach to create innovative solutions enabling customers to scale their organizations and achieve a competitive advantage. Oracle’s new strategic alliance with Fujitsu will allow companies in Japan to take advantage of an integrated cloud offering to support their transition to the cloud.”

This initiative will differentiate us from other cloud providers by emphasizing real enterprise cloud solutions, while offering Japanese companies access to best of breed technology in the new Cloud era.”

The combination of these innovative solutions including Oracle Database Cloud Service, Oracle HCM Cloud, and K5, will enable Fujitsu and Oracle to deliver mission critical systems over a cloud environment within Fujitsu’s datacenters while maintaining the high levels of performance and reliability that had previously been achieved in on-premise environments. Furthermore, with the Oracle Cloud provided from Fujitsu’s state-of-the-art datacenters, which boast a high level of capabilities in Japan, customers using K5 or Fujitsu’s hosting services will have access to use invaluable cloud services.

Binary Tree Announces SMART Directory Sync 5.0

leave a comment »

-Lets users in different Exchange organizations access a global address list and free/busy calendar information while maintaining cross-forest delegation access

KENDALL PARK, N. J. /PRNewswire/ — Binary Tree today announced version 5.0 of SMART Directory Sync. This product is a powerful, scalable and cost-effective way for enterprises to integrate multiple instances of Active Directory (AD) or to synchronize AD with a Domino Directory. Version 5.0 is available immediately.

New in Version 5.0
Users in different Active Directory or Exchange organizations can now:

  • Create contacts that fully support cross-forest delegation
  • Convert contacts to mail-enabled users in an Active Directory environment
  • Automatically map all in-use attributes between source and target forests
  • Configure redundant instances of SMART Directory Sync 5.0
  • Migrate Organizational Unit (OU) permissions between source and target environments
  • Create and update groups that contain members that have already been synchronized to a target Active Directory forest automatically

“If your tools aren’t working well together, it’s harder for your people to work well together,” says Gary Steere, Microsoft Office Servers and Services MVP, Certified Master, and Director of Product Strategy at Binary Tree. “With version 5.0, we’ve made it even easier for organizations to come together and collaborate. From day one, your users can find each other, schedule meetings and share mailboxes. These small wins can help eliminate the frustration and time wasting that often comes with these types of integrations.”

About SMART Directory Sync
Binary Tree’s SMART Directory Sync helps organizations synchronize multiple instances of AD or synchronize AD with a Domino Directory. The tool first makes both directories aware of each other, then synchronizes all mail-enabled objects – users, contacts, distribution lists, shared mailboxes, passwords and more. As a best-in-class product with an intuitive UI, the tool is flexible enough to cover virtually every directory synchronization scenario in large, complex environments.

Neos Inc. and Lockheed Martin to Develop ‘New Generation’ Sensor – Huge Advance in Ability to Find Oil, Gas & Minerals from the Air

leave a comment »

-Neos Inc. will develop a new generation gravity gradiometry sensor which will be 20 times more powerful than current technology to find oil, gas and minerals beneath the earth’s surface.

SAN FRANCISCO /PRNewswire/ — Neos and Lockheed Martin are building a unique sensor, which is so advanced it could find a 10-meter tall hill buried one kilometre below the earth’s surface. Put another way, the technology could find an armoured truck full of gold 20 meters below the earth, purely by sensing the effect the bullion imparts on the local gravity field.

The new technology, called Full Tensor Gradiometry (FTG) Plus, has 20 times the sensitivity and 10 times greater bandwidth than current gravity gradiometers.

“FTG Plus transforms what we can do and what we can see from the air,” said Chairman of Neos Inc. Jonathan Faiman, “Remote sensing is going to dominate the exploration market and with this sensor Neos will have the most advanced in the world. It will enable us to image resources cleaner, quicker and at a lower cost to our customers.”

Lockheed Martin is building the prototype specifically to detect natural resources from aircraft owned and operated by Neos.

Neos acquired the FTG Plus program as part of its acquisition of assets from CGG SA announced April 29, 2016.

“The advances we will make here are extraordinary. One of the reasons is that in the past we and competitors have used military hardware, modified for geophysical survey purposes,” said Gregory Paleolog, FTG Plus program lead for Neos, “FTG Plus is the first time Lockheed Martin has specifically built a sensor for our precise use and needs. That is a fundamental change; it is an entirely new design for us and we have exclusive rights to use it.”

Neos has exclusive use of the technology for applications related to oil, gas and mining and will use FTG Plus in its fleet — either Twin-Engined Basler BT-67s, single turbine engine Cessna C-208B Caravan aircraft or Reims-Cessna F406 twin turbine airplanes. The sensors can also be used in helicopters.

The technology has the potential to change the way governments, energy ministries and exploration teams find valuable resources, and ultimately lead to faster, more informed decisions about where to explore, lease and drill.

“At a time when so much marine seismic equipment is being cold-stacked, we will be able to use non-seismic technology with a new sensor 20 times better than anything we have ever seen before,” Paleolog said. “This means we will find more resources, quicker and with more accuracy than ever before. It will be transformative.”


  1. CGG and Neos: On April 29, 2016, Neos announced an agreement with CGG SA to acquire its Multi-Physics business group, its General Geophysics Italy group and its data libraries for an undisclosed sum. The FTG Plus programme was acquired as part of the transaction as were a fleet of aircraft used in non-seismic work including those that will fly the FTG sensor.
  2. Greg Paleolog and the FTG team are based in Toronto, Canada and in Melbourne and Perth, Australia, and the flights made with existing and future sensors are made all over the world. Media access to flights is available: Please approach David Yelland at KTP: or +44-207-652-4348.
  3. Neos helps governments, energy ministries and exploration teams in the natural resources industries make faster, more informed decisions about where to explore, lease and drill. In partnership with its clients, Neos acquires and simultaneously interprets multiple geological, seismic, non-seismic and geochemical datasets to identify valuable resources in the subsurface, including hydrocarbons, minerals and groundwater.
  4. Jonathan Faiman invested in Neos in May 2015 and became Chairman with overall control of the company. Before becoming Chairman at Neos, Jonathan co-founded Ocado PLC, a U.K. business started in 2000. Investors in Neos include Jonathan, Goldman Sachs, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Passport Capital.

    For more information, visit

    Jonathan Faiman and Greg Paleolog are contactable via David Yelland at KTP or Neos’ Communications Team (Courtney Ford: Office +1-925-738-2168, ) Or at Lockheed Martin contact Jim Archibald, Gravity Systems Business Manager, +1-716-298-6952.

  5. FTG stands for Full Tensor Gradiometry. FTG, like many sensors used in non-seismic work was originally used for military purposes.
  6. Neos is primarily a non-seismic company but it does also have a seismic processing group. The major difference between the two is that seismic work, the mainstay of the oil and gas industry for many years, often involves the use of ships using older technology to detect resources. Non-seismic work, which can be over land or see, uses advanced technology to map what is under the earth.
  7. It is then Neos’ digital teams which add the company’s competitive advantage in the market by analysing the data in order to produce maps showing where resources are. Neos has a world leading record in doing this.
  8. However, the combination of the new Lockheed Martin sensors and advances in the analysis will produce maps which surpass any currently available.

Renault-Nissan Alliance Delivers Annual Synergy Target One Full Year Ahead of Schedule

leave a comment »

PARIS and YOKOHAMA, Japan /PRNewswire/ —

  • Renault and Nissan generated €4.3 billion in synergies in 2015, one year earlier than anticipated
  • Purchasing, Engineering and Manufacturing were the top contributors to synergies
  • Common Module Family and cross-production continue to reduce costs, while the development of technologies including autonomous drive and vehicle connectivity is expected to generate major savings moving forward
  • Thanks to the convergence, the Alliance expects to generate at least €5.5 billion in synergies in 2018

Renault-Nissan Alliance generated €4.3 billion in synergies in 2015, one year ahead of schedule and an increase of 13 percent from 2014. Purchasing, engineering and manufacturing were the main contributors.

(Logo: )

Renault and Nissan generate “synergies” by working together to reduce costs, avoid spending and increase revenue. Only new synergies – not cumulative – are taken into account each year. Synergies help Renault and Nissan meet their financial goals and deliver higher-value vehicles to customers.

Renault and Nissan, which together sell one in 10 cars globally, converged four key functions in 2014: Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering & Supply Chain Management, Purchasing and Human Resources. While Renault and Nissan remain separate companies, each function is led by a common Alliance Executive Vice President.

Convergence in four of our key business functions has resulted in creating value by reducing costs, avoiding expenses and increasing revenues. Thanks to the convergence, the Alliance expects to generate at least €5.5 billion in synergies in 2018, said Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance.

Common Module Family

Common Module Family (CMF) is the Alliance’s unique system of modular vehicle architecture and an increasing source of synergies.

The Alliance is already reaping the benefits from CMF, reflected in the launch by Nissan of the Rogue in North America, the award winning Qashqai in Europe and the X-Trail in Japan and China. Renault also successfully launched the new Espace, the Kadjar, the new Megane and Talisman, all based on CFM-C/D.

In 2015, Renault began selling the Kwid in India, followed by the launch of the Redi-Go by Datsun in mid-2016. Both are built in the Alliance’s plant in Chennai, India, on the CMF-A architecture, which covers the smallest and most affordable category of cars.
