Preferred Platform for Product Launches and Showcases
The CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014 media briefing kicked off with Sennheiser Electronic Asia and Panasonic Toughbook giving live demonstrations of their game-changing products that will serve as key enablers for businesses in an increasingly mobile world.
Sennheiser Asia joins CommunicAsia2014 as an exhibitor for the first time this year, with the introduction of their new line of solutions for the Audio for Business segment. Some of these systems include the Team Connect, an all-in-one audio solution for meeting rooms, incorporating the rising trend of "Bring Your Own Device" with excellent audio intelligibility, into the boardrooms and business meeting spaces.
"The rationale for our inaugural participation at CommunicAsia2014 this year was clear: This is one of the best platforms we can identify in the region that attracts the target audience we want to reach out to. We believe that our presence in this exhibition will grow our business opportunities in the Enterprise industry, particularly in the Audio for Business segment. We are looking forward to a successful show this year," said Mr. Ng Chee Soon, President and Managing Director of Sennheiser Asia.
Panasonic Toughbook gave an exclusive preview and demonstration of the Panasonic TOUGHPAD UT-MB5, the world's first 4K 20" tablet. The tablet operates on Windows 8.1 and will be soft launched for the first time in Asia at CommunicAsia2014.
"CommunicAsia2014 is the obvious choice of a launch platform in Asia for our latest TOUGHPAD. Over the past two years that we have been participating, this excellent platform allows us to meet and network with many customers and partners from across the region," says Mr. Jun Matsuo, Director of Panasonic Systems Communication Asia Pacific. "We are excited and look forward to showcasing our latest range of products at the show."
Joining Sennheiser Electronic Asia and Panasonic Toughbook at CommunicAsia2014 to showcase major technology breakthroughs and launch their latest innovations in mobility and connectivity include:
-- BioSenze Life Science / Shopster: To be launched for the first time worldwide, BioSenze's self-administered diagnostic kits provide accurate readings for common health tests utilising the patient's blood, urine or saliva samples. These metered readings are transmitted to cloud servers via the patient's smartphone and the patient's health dashboard is reflected in the mobile application that is available on multiple platforms. This reduces the cost and time required for conducting these diagnostic tests and at the same time, improves the efficiency in doctor-patient consultation
-- Huawei: The Huawei Ascend P7 Android smartphone will be launched, for the first time in Asia, at CommunicAsia2014. The smartphone, a combination of technology, design and performance, features an 8 MP camera and is set to open doors to a more connected world

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
