Project Ara Developers Conference 2015 in Singapore
Project Ara is the codename for an initiative by Google that aims to develop an open hardware[citation needed] platform for creating highly modular smartphones. The platform will include a structural frame (endoskeleton that holds smartphone modules of the owner's choice, such as a display, camera or an extra battery. It would allow users to swap out malfunctioning modules or upgrade individual modules as innovations emerge, providing longer lifetime cycles for the handset, and potentially reducing electronic waste.[4][5] A market pilot for Project Ara is scheduled for late 2015 with a target bill of materials cost of $50 for a basic grey phone.[6][7] The project was originally headed by the Advanced Technologies and Projects team within Motorola Mobility while it was a subsidiary of Google. Although Google had sold Motorola to Lenovo, it is retaining the project team who will work under the direction of the Android division.[8]

Transforming Singapore into a Smart Nation in Singapore
“We will make full use of new technologies to develop sustainable and innovative solutions that improve our lives. We will make Singapore a Smart Nation: enabling safer, cleaner and greener urban living, more transport options, better care for the elderly at home; more responsive public services and more opportunities for citizen engagement.” as communicated by President Tony Tan during a recent Presidents parliamentary address in May.

So what does this mean and how is Singapore going to achieve this?

Singapore is at the leading edge of urban planning and government agencies are looking at the use of technological and governance models to show that with the right focus and resources, cities can become ‘smart’ and more sustainable. Government agencies in Singapore confront a growing and highly diverse range of challenges and urban issues driven by traffic safety, infrastructure security, cross-border migration, cyber criminality and possible terrorism risks. To combat this, agencies are looking to a holistic approach to monitor and preempt or respond to incidents more effectively and efficiently throughout the city.

By attending this event you will hear about what other cities and nations around the world are doing to make their cities smart, how technologies have been implemented, the real benefits these technologies have provided and what technology solutions are available to improve public services for citizens and businesses.

What will be presented at this event:
- International trends in the creation of smart cities and how technology is preparing the next generation
- How technology is being implemented to stimulate innovation that drives positive economic and social transformation
- Case Studies – How HP is building Smart Cities

Security Exchange 2014 in Indonesia
It’s a puzzle that seems unsolvable: CIOs, IT Security Managers and Administrators find it tough to manage threats to their IT infrastructure and corporate networks that continually increase in complexity and scope.

The threat landscape reveals the many pieces of this puzzle.

The growing adoption of Cloud services has increased the threat of attacks on critical cloud infrastructure. Attacks are getting more sophisticated: Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) techniques are being adapted for malware distribution while DDOS (Distributed denial of service) attacks will get even craftier — and cybercrime such as massive data theft becomes the new norm.

End users at all levels continue to be the weakest link in the security perimeter, with social engineering attacks and insider threats a major concern. Mobile security in the age of BYOD is quickly becoming a major issue, while personal data and privacy laws have increased the compliance complexities for companies.

At the same time, you have to secure your IT infrastructure while grappling with virtualization to increase the efficiency of your consolidated computing resources and managing your enterprise storage deftly to address business needs.

The puzzle is challenging and perplexing. Let the experts at Security Exchange 2014 give you the tools to crack the puzzle. They will share the latest insights, intelligence and strategies to combat the latest threats, and tips to enhance your network performance and optimize your storage infrastructure. You will learn from the best in the field and discover the best-of-breed IT solutions and know-how.

The Summit Wisdom Mission
In January of 2014 Doug Farndale and I, Scott Drummonds started discussing our experience working for big information technology companies in Asia.  Doug had worked for Cisco for 17 years and I worked for EMC for four and for VMware for four years before that.  As others in our position will attest, every employee of of a big American IT company in Asia has a sales responsibility.  And with that responsibility comes the need to frequently attend conferences.  Doug and my conversation turned to these shows and their incredible potential we felt remain undeveloped.
IT events provided information to attendees as radio and newspapers to: they broadcast.  A small number of industry experts take the stage and share their experiences.  The vast majority of those speakers work for vendors and are necessarily telling a story that encourages the audience to buy their products.  But on the whole there is very little interaction with the audience.  Audience members hear the presenters, say 'hi' to some friends, and then leave.  They are unable to extract value from their fellow attendees.  And they have little ability to guide the organizers and sponsors to make the next event more useful.
Doug and I knew we could improve the value of these events.  In today's connected world, where we share our interests and skills on professional networking sites like LinkedIn, and everyone carries a smartphone, we know we can better connect and inform IT professionals.  From this idea Summit Wisdom was born.
In the coming months and years we plan to improve the experience of attending IT events.  In short, this is our mission:
  • Make it easier for IT professionals to find relevant and effective events.
  • Simplify participation at trade shows with mobile application scheduling assistance.
  • Improve the peer-to-peer networking at conferences.  The smartest technologists in a given domain are standing right next to you!  We want to help broker an introduction so you can learn facts from customers, not just vendors.
  • Remember attendees' interests, participation, and connections to better suggest activities at other events.
As Doug and I continue to build Summit Wisdom we expect our product and mission to evolve to suit the needs of our users.  We are building this platform to help problems we saw in our careers.  And we know we will build a better solution as we consider the problems that everyone else in attendance experiences.  So, please consider our virtual door always open.  We want to hear from you.

Why Tendtoo?
Since January when Doug and Scott first started discussing Tendtoo, we are constantly challenged on our value proposition.  We spend enough time challenging and defending our idea that we believe in our product.  Indeed, when we worked for large IT companies we would have loved this service.  Yet often, before we can explain our plans, it is common to hear marketing professionals tell us one of two things:
  1. Everything we are trying to do has already been done and is of no use.
  2. Enterprise marketing already has robust systems and there is no room for improvement.

Why Big Data Doesn't Work in Hong Kong
With the rapid transformation of data technology, we currently stand at a historical turning point. Although the term “big data” has become the subject of heated discussion, rarely does anyone mention the abilities that this great revolution necessitates. Countless businesses and individuals regard data with equal parts trepidation and awe: “What does big data have to do with me?” The future is the era of big data; in the future, competition will be synonymous to data competition. It is high time that we forget the fanciful speculations and hype, and let big data truly “live” for once – not just as something “seen” but as something “utilized.” The data no longer serves simply as the basis for arithmetical calculations, but also possesses the potential to predict and create new opportunities.

Mr. Herbert Chia, Alibaba's Head of Intelligence, completed the TIEMBA (Tsinghua - INSEAD Executive MBA) programme in 2010. As Herbert puts it, the programme was an awakening "that gave him the energy and the power to do something else". In this presentation, Mr. Herbert Chia reviews the heat on Big Data and develops the discussion on how to turn it into something “utilized”. A brief introduction of Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA Program will also be presented after the lecture.

Keynote 7: Malware - Days Of Our Future Past in Hong Kong
Modern malware is multi-faceted, yet security systems traditionally only aim to solve part of the puzzle. The battle against malware is lost even before it began simply because there is no silver bullet to security. You probably have heard of the threat landscape and it is a not a matter of "if" but "when" malware will occur in an organization. A more intelligent question to ask would be "How would you do things differently when you knew you were compromised"? Most anti malware solutions are reactive by nature and oftentimes, they are losing grounds in their remediation. So come and join us to learn how we can redeem back time and grounds in the fight against malware.

Keynote 3: Building A Path To The Cloud in Hong Kong
The cloud has changed the way business is done across every industry. By changing IT into a service that can be delivered anywhere at any time, it's helping companies adapt more quickly and flexibly to changing business dynamics and allowing them to seize new revenue opportunities.

As organizations build clouds, they need to make sure they're getting the right functional benefits-such as agility, faster resource provisioning, and automated orchestration of their IT systems, applications and services. To get that right, they need to think hard about the needs of their clients (both internal or external), maintaining and protecting investments, and the economic benefits they expect to derive from moving to the cloud. At the same time, they need to evaluate the myriad of different technologies and architectures that can be used to build the cloud.

This session covers the steps an organization has to take in following a path toward the Cloud and how some applying sine basic principles can make the journey easier.

Keynote 2: Transforming Big Data Into Competitive Advantage in Hong Kong
Big Data and Analytics have become top agenda items for many executives, but with the opportunity to unlock the value of Big Data to accelerate innovation, drive optimization, and improve compliance comes the need to demonstrate value, navigate expanding technology alternatives, re-create business processes, and ensure the availability of appropriately skilled staff. The intelligent economy produces a constant stream of data that is being monitored and analyzed. Social interactions, mobile and wearable devices, facilities, equipment, sensors, and physical infrastructure as well as a full range of transaction processing across all industries all contribute to the flow. The ability to manage and analyze Big Data and derive value from these activities will increasingly define an organization's ability to transform, compete or service its constituents.

Organizations today are generating data at an ever-increasing velocity but how they can leverage this Big Data? How organizations tapped into their massive machine generated data to deliver unprecedented insights across key IT and business areas - from monitoring, to capacity planning, security and analysis.

The impact on those organizations that have managed to embrace these new technologies has been positive and significant; from far greater ability to respond to the needs of the business whilst also keeping costs down, being more effective in resource utilization and garnering stronger business support for new ideas and initiatives. Correct application of the Third Platform technologies will help CIO's and IT management regain the strategic advantage both within and for their organizations, but with so much legacy infrastructure, where does the roadmap begin?

This series of Pan-Asian seminars will provide end users with key insights into how the leading organizations globally are leveraging new infrastructural technologies for competitive advantage, and present the IDC vision of what the future of the datacenter will look like by embracing concepts such as hybrid cloud, software defined enterprises, agile and efficient facility management and business KPI-driven IT departments.

This conference will promise to leave attendees with an unbiased view of how different organizations can move forward to ensure future strong survival in this highly competitive business environment of today.

CIO Leaders Summit Australia in Australia
Despite global economic uncertainty, IT spends in Australia remain steady and modest rises are in store for 2014. In contrast, Innovation and leadership quality remain the prime obstacles for Australian Businesses and IT Leaders. After the peak of this economic uncertainty ‘crisis mode’ has gradually begun to decline and new trends and rules have begun to emerge. Globalisation, industrialisation and consumerisation, in addition to the forces of social networking, mobility and cloud continue to transform ‘life as we know it’. Businesses and IT decision makers are thus faced with the urgent reality of realigning their organisations with changing customer paradigms; should they wish to endure this new age.

As a result, the role of the CIO is now far removed from the traditional view point of simply attending to technical matters. Instead the CIO is seen attending to business issues and sharing the roles and responsibilities of their counterparts. It has been said that now is the time for CIO’s to take the lead. As more companies come to rely on technology in order to build customer loyalty and to achieve business goals the CIO is placed in the frontline as we enter this digital business future.

This brings us to the 2014 CIO Leaders Summit Australia. The Summit is invitation only and intended for Australia’s senior IT leaders to gather for a strategic one day event in order to exchange knowledge and interact as one over a range of important issues facing the industry. The one-to-one meetings with leading supplier companies will also provide a wealth of knowledge and offer opportunities for all attending delegates, while the informal networking sessions promise to create a unique interactive forum.

Our advisory council and organising committee are made up of some of the country’s most respected IT leaders who have created the most relevant and topical agenda for our attending audience. They have invited leading experts to provide sessions on site, allowing all attendees the opportunity to be informed by front-line executives that compress years of meaningful experience into a systematic, well-organised learning program.

Within the luxurious settings of the InterContinental Hotel Sydney this networking and lead generation event presents a unique opportunity to develop meaningful and valuable business relations.

Why Tendtoo?
Since January when Doug and Scott first started discussing Tendtoo, we are constantly challenged on our value proposition.  We spend enough time challenging and defending our idea that we believe in our product.  Indeed, when we worked for large IT companies we would have loved this service.  Yet often, before we can explain our plans, it is common to hear marketing professionals tell us one of two things:
  1. Everything we are trying to do has already been done and is of no use.
  2. Enterprise marketing already has robust systems and there is no room for improvement.

The Summit Wisdom Mission
In January of 2014 Doug Farndale and I, Scott Drummonds started discussing our experience working for big information technology companies in Asia.  Doug had worked for Cisco for 17 years and I worked for EMC for four and for VMware for four years before that.  As others in our position will attest, every employee of of a big American IT company in Asia has a sales responsibility.  And with that responsibility comes the need to frequently attend conferences.  Doug and my conversation turned to these shows and their incredible potential we felt remain undeveloped.
IT events provided information to attendees as radio and newspapers to: they broadcast.  A small number of industry experts take the stage and share their experiences.  The vast majority of those speakers work for vendors and are necessarily telling a story that encourages the audience to buy their products.  But on the whole there is very little interaction with the audience.  Audience members hear the presenters, say 'hi' to some friends, and then leave.  They are unable to extract value from their fellow attendees.  And they have little ability to guide the organizers and sponsors to make the next event more useful.
Doug and I knew we could improve the value of these events.  In today's connected world, where we share our interests and skills on professional networking sites like LinkedIn, and everyone carries a smartphone, we know we can better connect and inform IT professionals.  From this idea Summit Wisdom was born.
In the coming months and years we plan to improve the experience of attending IT events.  In short, this is our mission:
  • Make it easier for IT professionals to find relevant and effective events.
  • Simplify participation at trade shows with mobile application scheduling assistance.
  • Improve the peer-to-peer networking at conferences.  The smartest technologists in a given domain are standing right next to you!  We want to help broker an introduction so you can learn facts from customers, not just vendors.
  • Remember attendees' interests, participation, and connections to better suggest activities at other events.
As Doug and I continue to build Summit Wisdom we expect our product and mission to evolve to suit the needs of our users.  We are building this platform to help problems we saw in our careers.  And we know we will build a better solution as we consider the problems that everyone else in attendance experiences.  So, please consider our virtual door always open.  We want to hear from you.
