1  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / University incubated start-ups dazzle big name corporates in new event on: May 21, 2015, 07:40:17 AM
London, 21st May 2015 – A group of universities has launched a brand-new event that aims to get university spin-outs and technology start-ups into some of the world’s biggest corporates.

SETsquared, a partnership of the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey, says that the UK economy could be boosted by large corporates adopting technologies from agile start-ups to boost their productivity, sales and innovation.

Today it held its first ever ‘Open Innovation’ event, which brought 20 of its most cutting-edge technology start-ups face to face with corporates including Barclays, Unilever and Intel. It is the first time such a large-scale event, with start-ups pitching to more than 50 corporates, has taken place. The start-ups, working across a range of sectors including healthcare, mobile technology and environment, had the opportunity to pitch the corporates on how their technologies and products could be adopted by the businesses to the advantage of both sides.

Among the technologies showcased were:
• A software platform that analyses location data by time, not distance. The technology, from iGeolise, is already being used by the likes of Zoopla and Countrywide.
• A social network based on physical interactions that uses wearable technology.
• A measurement system which checks the quality of radiation treatment.

A number of strong leads were made at the event and over the coming months some of the start-ups could enter negotiations with the corporates to sell their technologies.

Already SETsquared’s Open Innovation programme, funded by the IPO, has seen success. Ripjar, part of SETsquared’s incubation programme, has had its advanced social media analysis software used by a large banking corporate as a direct result of the programme.

Tom Griffin, CEO of Ripjar, said: “The Open Innovation Programme enabled Ripjar to form a close relationship with a global institution, which would otherwise have not been possible. We have now developed a collaborative partnership and have adapted our solution and business to meets their requirements.”

Simon Bond, Innovation Director at SETsquared, said: “The Open Innovation Showcase provides a vital link for many start-ups, as talking to companies at an early stage means the products can be refined for use and the wider market. It’s exactly what the UK economy needs, as it helps big businesses streamline and innovate by working with universities, SMEs and start-ups.”

Corporate quote
Six of the start-ups at the showcase came from the ICURe programme, which is funded by SETsquared in partnership with the Higher Education Funding Council for England and Innovate UK. ICURe is a multi-million pound pilot programme giving early career researchers at the five SETsquared universities access to up to £50,000 each to explore the market potential of their ideas, technologies and products.

2  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Miura Systems Grabs Number 3 Spot in SME Export Track 100 on: May 18, 2015, 07:43:14 AM
Stokenchurch, UK, 18th May 2015 – Miura Systems is delighted to announce that it has been ranked number 3 in the inaugural Sunday Times BT Business SME Export Track 100, as a firm with one of the fastest growing overseas sales of any small or medium sized business in the country.

Published this weekend, the league table charts, for the first time, those privately-held SMEs that have generated the most revenue from international customers over the past two years.

High Wycombe-based Miura Systems launched its first product just four years ago with a staff of less than ten people.
Since then, the firm has rapidly accelerated to become a leading provider of innovative and highly secure electronic payment devices with a focus on mobile point-of-sale (mPOS).

It now sells into around 30 international markets across five continents, and counts major payment industry players such as PayPal and Swedish mobile payment firm iZettle as customers.

Miura’s annual international sales over the past two years have grown over 250% to top £14 million, and it is rapidly approaching yet another landmark: one million units sold.

“I am delighted that Miura Systems has been placed in the top 3 of the inaugural Sunday Times BT Business SME Export Track 100. The result reflects how the imagination and innovation of the founders has not only helped define the shape of the nascent mobile point of sale device market but also captured the imagination of payment service providers across the world,” said Ian Rutland, CEO of Miura Systems.

“It is wonderful to reflect that a UK technology company is taking on and beating the major global players in markets as far afield as Japan, Australia, the US and Asia. I would like to thank our customers and staff for helping to make this happen and we look forward to building on this success in the coming years.”

Miura Systems’ success comes from its vision in anticipating the huge impact smartphones and tablets would have on the payments industry. The first users of its technology were the previously underserved businesses such as plumbers, decorators and yoga teachers, who could quickly accept card payments in a cost effective, secure and easy manner by simply pairing Miura payment devices to their smartphones. As mobile payment devices grew in popularity, international expansion and partnerships with new mPOS service providers soon followed.

Partners have been attracted not only by the sleek, consumer oriented design of the products but also the combination of unique software and hardware features that significantly reduces the total cost of ownership of Miura solutions compared to more traditional payment device providers.

The firm’s latest device, the M10, combines mobile, counter-top and contactless payment capabilities to give clients unparalleled flexibility to serve their customers wherever they are and however they want to pay.

Miura’s largest market is Europe, where the volume of chip and PIN transactions is high. But with new clients signed up in the US and Japan, future growth will certainly expand to other regions as the contactless payments revolution continues to spread.

Inclusion in the Sunday Times BT Business SME Export Track 100 recognises achievements to date and the business has the perfect platform for even stronger growth over the next two years and beyond.

Miura Systems is particularly excited about the growth potential of mPOS in developing markets where there is no legacy, fixed payments infrastructure.

About Miura Systems: (www.Miurasystems.com)
Miura Systems are the global leading provider of innovative secure electronic payment hardware to the mPOS solution marketplace. Miura partners with Independent Software Vendors and Systems Integrators to deliver platforms, expertise and services to enable retailers and acquirers to provide rich and flexible payment solutions for retail, hospitality, financial and transportation markets globally.

Additionally, four guest speakers contributed to the conference program with their presentations. For example, the new machine translation interface between the Across Language Server and Lucy Software as well as the optimized interface to the Plunet business and translation management system were presented. Biraj Rath of Braahmam Net Solutions talked about the challenges and opportunities of the Indian translation market; Marek Gawrysiak of TextPartner sp.j, reported on how the organization Translators without Borders uses language to save lives.

5  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / TechComm of Adobe, FCT and Across Celebrates Successful Premiere on: May 06, 2015, 06:41:01 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 6th May 2015 – Adobe, FCT, and Across are looking back on the first successful TechComm. The companies had extended the invitation for this expert forum on the eve of the tekom spring conference on April 22, 2015 in Darmstadt, Germany. In view of the positive response of the approximately 50 participants, most of whom were technical writers, similar events are being planned in other cities.

A central statement that was highlighted throughout the event was that apart from PDF documents, it will henceforth be necessary to provide or enable access to situation-specific information on diverse media, PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

Within the scope of an application report, Mathias Tancredi, Head of Technical Writing/Documentation at Herrenknecht AG, a globally leading manufacturer of tunnel building machines, explained how his company creates complex documentation with structured Adobe FrameMaker, the editorial system TIM from Fischer Computertechnik FCT AG, and the translation management system Across Language Server. "Mr. Tancredi's presentation impressively demonstrated how important it is to plan documentation and translation processes with farsightedness. If the upstream and downstream processes and systems are integrated from the outset, process steps can be automated in a meaningful way via interfaces, and savings potential can be exploited even more effectively", says Christian Weih, Chief Sales Officer, Across Systems GmbH.

After the application-oriented presentation, the participants were given opportunity to discuss various subjects in nine special expert forums. The main focus was on today's requirements, such as the growing demands on timeliness, quality, online availability, and the dynamic provision of information on mobile devices. The spectrum ranged from the question how documentation can be made "global ready" to how information can be distributed via a modern content delivery portal to the automation of translation processes.

UK, 15th April 2015 – SETsquared has shown its support to start-ups and innovation businesses in Europe at an event held at the United Nations in Geneva yesterday (Tuesday 14 April) by offering a free place to one of the region’s leading start-ups on its acclaimed Entrepreneurship Training programme.

Simon Bond, Innovation Director at SETsquared, the university business incubator, which is ranked best in Europe and number two in the world, joined the jury panel at UNECE’s (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) first event for start-ups at Geneva’s Palais des Nations.

The event aimed to showcase how innovative entrepreneurial talent can contribute to address today’s social and environmental challenges, through new ground-breaking ideas that can become successful and sustainable businesses.

Following a call for ideas launched by UNECE, six finalists from Spain, Israel, Italy, Armenia and Moldova attended the event to pitch in front of a jury comprised of industry experts and hear from the panellists.

One of the leading finalists from the day has been offered a free place to come to the UK and take part in SETsquared’s acclaimed Entrepreneurship Training Programme. The winning start-up, AEInnova, a spin-out from Spain’s Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, has a compelling microelectronics solution for energy harvesting that turns industrial waste heat into electric power.

Simon Bond said: “It’s been an absolute honour to represent SETsquared at the UNECE and to be able to offer a place on our Entrepreneurship Training Programme. SETsquared is proud to support start-ups throughout Europe as well as those rooted in the UK, and the standard I’ve seen at UNECE’s event has been fantastic.

“The programme could be a springboard for AEInnova to realise the potential of its technology and raise the investment that will turn its plan into a substantial business. Furthermore, its energy harvesting solution requires sophisticated wireless electronics and advanced next generation mobile communication such as 5G, which SETsquared’s network is well-placed to assist with.

“But this is only the start, as we look forward to working with the UN this coming year to help support more European technology start-ups going forward.”

Places are available on SETsquared’s Entrepreneurship Training Programme. Visit http://www.setsquared.co.uk/start-support/entrepreneurship-training-programme for more information.

12  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / PDF Days Europe 2015 – Information and inspiration for users on: April 09, 2015, 06:12:52 AM
Cologne, Germany, 9th April 2015 – Following a successful premiere in 2014, the second edition of PDF Days Europe is about to start. On the 8th and 9th of June 2015, participants will get to know a range of solutions and technologies related to PDF, the stable global standard that has become an indispensable part of the business world. The Maternushaus in Cologne will offer information and inspiration for IT managers, decision-makers, ECM strategists, developers and PDF experts looking to use PDF optimally. The inaugural PDF/A User Award also underscores just how user-focused this event intends to be. It will be awarded for the first time this year to mark the tenth anniversary of the PDF/A standard.

The PDF Days will begin with the Educational Day on June 8th, starting at 10am, which will allow participants to assemble their own personalized information package. It all starts with a look back on the last ten years of PDF/A, during which Olaf Drümmer, chairman of the PDF Association, and Thomas Zellmann, director of the PDF Association, will present the PDF/A User Award. This will recognize the best application on show during the PDF Days. The “7 Minutes” session will then present a series of rapid-fire real-world PDF applications focusing on problems, solutions and benefits.

There will then be three different programs to choose from. The first track will focus on users presenting their own knowledge and experiences; Alte Leipziger Versicherung, for example, will report on its own experiences converting PDFs. The second track is focused on the mobile world, including document capture and processing, as well as displaying PDFs on smartphones. There will also be a discussion on whether PDF is always the best format for small mobile devices, or if alternative methods of presentation such as HTML5 can be preferable. A timely series of discussions, now that mobile devices are everywhere – including, increasingly, in business applications and processes. The third track will be in English and will go in-depth on specific subjects. The day will be rounded off with a summary from each of the individual groups, followed by an evening event.

Solution Day on June 9th will concentrate on the practical implementation of PDF solutions. Starting at 9am, it will include reports from customer projects, best practices for users and developers, advice on protecting documents against unauthorized use and presentations on archiving and accessibility. The developers axaio, callas, levigo, LuraTech and WebSupergoo will present a range of PDF products and solutions, after which the program will again split into three tracks.

The first track, “PDF in Practice”, will consider forms and comments, as well as signing, printing and scanning PDFs. The “Output and ZUGFeRD” track will include print and publishing standards, as well as e-invoicing using the ZUGFeRD data model. ZUGFeRD enables automatic invoice processing using machine-readable data. SAP Services employees will clearly demonstrate how SAP users can implement ZUGFeRD for incoming and outgoing invoices to benefit from this data model. The third track will consist of English-language presentations, such as a critical evaluation of the bring-your-own-device culture in businesses and a roundtable discussion on “PDF in Business”. The conference will end with the ceremony for the PDF/A User Award.

13  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Print still king for so-called digital natives on: March 27, 2015, 06:47:09 AM
New York, 27th March 2015 - Millennials are far more likely to read printed books than ebooks, according to new research by Publishing Technology.

The survey, which polled 2,000 consumers across the U.S. and U.K., aged between 18 and 34, found that in the last year, nearly twice as many respondents had read a print book (71 per cent), than an ebook on any device – the closest being a tablet (37 per cent). Showing no strong allegiance, young consumers also reported reading ebooks on dedicated ereaders (29 per cent), mobile phones (27 per cent) and personal computers (25 per cent).

The personal touch is still of vital importance for millennials who would rather acquire printed books from chain book shops (47 per cent) as opposed to online retailers (39 per cent). When purchasing ebooks, 51 per cent of millennials would favour an ereading app with 40 per cent acquiring ebooks directly from their ereading devices and 19 per cent using subscription services.

When it comes to discovering and sharing books, although online communities and social media play an important role in millennials’ lives, the research shows how essential offline communication is for this young demographic. Millennials mostly discover print and ebooks by word of mouth referrals (36 per cent), online browsing (26 per cent), and social media (24 per cent), while 23 per cent of those polled reported finding books browsing in brick-and-mortar book shops.

Millennial readers are not a generation of sharers. But they do recommend books and share opinions with their peers via word of mouth (40 per cent), social media (26 per cent), and online communities (16 per cent). This group could be persuaded to read more on electronic devices by price promotions (45 per cent), more ebook/print book bundling (26 per cent) and shorter content forms (10 per cent) or pay-per-chapter ebooks (9 per cent).

Michael Cairns, Publishing Technology CEO, said: “We undertook this research to better understand the reading habits and test our assumptions about a generation of young people born and raised in the digital era. We were quite surprised to discover that 18-34 year-olds are not as ‘online-only’ as we, in the publishing industry, often assume.”

He continued: “This rising cohort of book-buyers relies on peers for suggestions of what to read, often prefers cheaper, smaller bites that can be shared freely, and revels in the luxury of being able to read whenever and wherever it likes - regardless of format or platform. To engage with these readers now and cultivate them for tomorrow, publishers need to target multiple channels for their content and integrate with this generation’s social lives, both on and offline. And the physical book world and print-based publishing still plays a very active role in this.”

The survey How Millennials Consume Content was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Publishing Technology. The full results can be accessed at www.publishingtechnology.com/research
