1  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Across Systems GmbH Launches New Website on: Today at 04:47:41 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 30th July 2014. – Shortly after the release of the latest version of the Across Language Server, Across Systems GmbH publishes a fully revised website. Like the translation management system, the revised website also reflects the software manufacturer's user-oriented strategy. The clear, modern design and fully revised content structure are to facilitate the navigation and retrieval of information.

"When creating the concept for the new Across website, our main objective was to present all information related to Across – from the description of all product components and services to the support – in a well-structured, comprehensible manner. The new structure and the modern design will help our existing and prospective customers to quickly find what they are looking for", says Tanja Wendling, Head of Marketing and Lead Management at Across. "We are very proud of the result of the design and implementation phase, which took several months, as the new, easy-to-use website underlines the service orientation of Across. Of course we are also looking forward to the feedback of our users."

Following the relaunch of the main website www.across.net, the website www.my-across.net for translators will also be revised. This is also associated with an optimization of the translator search, which is temporarily available on www.my-across.net only.

2  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / SETsquared companies wow Barclays on: July 22, 2014, 07:04:31 AM
Southampton, UK, 22nd July 2014 - Innovative start-ups from the SETsquared partnership had a unique opportunity to pitch their technologies to one of the world’s leading banking institutions, Barclays, this month (July).

Six companies from across SETsquared's incubator programme were selected to showcase their innovative business propositions to a large group of senior business and technology directors at Barclays’ global headquarters at Canary Wharf in London

The opportunity is part of SETsquared’s Open Innovation programme, which aims to help corporate organisations access new technologies, solutions and innovations by brokering relationships with SETsquared’s start-up companies, researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs.

It is a mutually beneficial partnership, with the corporates finding new technologies and products and the start-ups getting the chance to pitch to business giants they’d never usually be able to access.

SETsquared and Barclays worked closely together to identify Barclays’ interests. The joint team then identified and selected a wide range of innovative companies across the SETsquared incubator programme that appealed to the bank. Through a series of rigorous reviews and presentations six candidates companies were selected to present at a prestigious event at Canary Wharf.


The event was a huge success with each company stimulating significant interest and opening the doors to further discussion about their products and services. Each company has received feedback from a 35 strong panel of representatives from Barclays, including Corporate Banking, Digital and Mobile services, Wealth Management and group technology.

Simon Bond, Innovation Director at SETsquared, said: “In the past there have been barriers to this kind of collaborative innovation, both on the side of the corporate and the start-up.

“Previously there hasn’t been a platform for corporates to go to where they can find enough solid, relevant start-ups in one place. It made for a laborious and risky process, with no guarantee of finding the right technologies at the end. Similarly, start-ups find it almost impossible to engage with the right people in major corporate organisations. Our Open Innovation programme, which was launched with support from the Intellectual Property Office, is now able to address this.”

“We have been really impressed with the commitment Barclays has made at the most senior levels to reaching out to our innovators and start ups. This is an example of how the right corporate values can be key to exploiting the benefits of UK innovation for the whole of the British economy.”

Adrian Cottington, Director in Global Technology and Infrastructure Services at Barclays agrees: “The Open Innovation programme, with SETsquared acting as the intermediary, has given us the opportunity to access to a pool of cherry-picked talent, all in one place. We’ve been very impressed with the quality of technology companies that SETsquared have presented to us and are looking forward to talking further with the companies.”

9  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / PoINT Storage Manager Version 5.0 now available on: July 08, 2014, 04:55:48 AM
Siegen, Germany, 8th July 2014 – PoINT Software & Systems GmbH has released version 5.0 of PoINT Storage Manager. This new release includes various novelties by which companies can face the challenges of data growth, administration of inactive data and long-term storage efficiently. From now on also authorized users are able to archive data independently. Furthermore PoINT Software & Systems had extended the list of supported storage systems considerably. Version 5.0 supports now also the operating system Windows Server 2012 R2 and contains an optimized integration of Blu-ray Disc libraries by PoINT Jukebox Manager.

For facing the growth of unstructured data storage concepts are necessary to keep investments for storage extensions and for additional back-up licenses respectively capacities at a minimum. Normally up to 80% of data is unstructured, whereof nearly 70% do not need to be accessible directly. Inactive data stresses increasingly the primary storage capacity and the back-up of primary storage cannot be carried out without problems due to the huge data volumes.
A file-tiering- and archiving software is a solution for companies to purge inactive data from expensive primary storage to cost-efficient secondary storage for archival, but retain transparent data access. PoINT Storage Manager applies the file tiering approach consequently and thus creates more free capacity on the primary storage as well as savings in additional back-up costs.

PoINT Software & Systems GmbH has integrated additional functions addressing the main market requirements of the storage sector. The policy-based file archiving function had been extended by a user driven archiving functionality by which authorized users can purge and archive files independently. For this purpose PoINT Storage Manager 5.0 offers a web client which is available network-wide and can be used without a decided software installation.

Furthermore PoINT Software & Systems has extended the list of supported storage systems considerably. For the integration of object store systems, which are becoming more and more important in the market, now also connectors for Caringo CAStor and HDS HCP (Hitachi Content Platform) are available. Additionally Blu-ray Disc libraries can be integrated for long-term storage and archiving by the established PoINT Jukebox Manager resulting in an advanced functionality. Also the operating system Windows Server 2012 R2 is supported by the new version. For ensuring the server failover the Microsoft Cluster Manager is implied.

About PoINT:
PoINT Software & Systems GmbH is specialized in the development of software products and systems solutions for storage and management of data using all available mass storage technologies like hard disks, magnetic tapes and optical media. Close collaboration with leading hardware manufacturers enables an early support of innovative storage technologies.

10  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / PDF Days Europe 2014 – New user event shows real form on: July 04, 2014, 09:44:20 AM
Berlin, Cologne, Germany , 4th July 2014 – The PDF Association has successfully brought to life a new user-focused event in the form of the “PDF Days Europe 2014”. In mid-June, 160 participants came to Cologne to seize the opportunity to learn everything there is to know about the different PDF standards, their advantages and their uses. The first day focused on sharing knowledge, allowing visitors to assemble their own personal information package out of three parallel series of developer-neutral presentations. The second day, the “practical day”, was all about the practical and successful implementation of PDF projects using specific solutions. Participants especially praised the practically-minded selection of subjects, the structure of the conference with its three parallel series of presentations, and the many opportunities to speak to suppliers and other users. With this overwhelmingly positive feedback in mind, the PDF Association plans to continue the “PDF Days Europe” next year.

“The PDF Days Europe 2014 offered visitors the unique opportunity to learn everything they needed to know about the PDF standards and the latest news and developments in the world of PDF technology, and all in just two days”, explained Olaf Drümmer, chairman of the PDF Association board. “In particular, the practically-minded nature of the presentations on the second day, which was very strongly focused on projects and solutions, proved to offer significant added value to participants.”

To begin the conference, six proven experts had seven minutes each to introduce one PDF standard, providing a good overview of PDF/A, PDF/E, PDF/UA, PDF/VT, PDF/X and PDF itself.
On the first day of the event, presentations on the use of the PDF format on mobile devices were met with particularly significant interest. These included case studies for scanning with smartphones, clearing invoices, legally signing PDF documents and options for optimising PDF display on mobile devices.

Presentations on e-invoicing with the now officially approved ZUGFeRD data model were also very popular, as were those on the new technical guidelines for replacement scanning, TR-RESISCAN.

Contributing providers began the practical day: each had a closely-measured five minute slot to introduce their product or solution. This brief, fast-paced overview made it easier for participants to decide which questions or solutions they wished to focus on out of the available options. One key issue here was converting scanned and digital documents, and particularly emails, to PDF – and not just to PDF/A for long-term archiving. Both the introduction to and the workshop on universally-accessible PDFs in the form of PDF/UA were very popular with visitors. All in all, the many lively discussions in the presentations showed just how critical the issues presented were to participants.

Interested parties who missed the PDF Days Europe 2014 can view video recordings of the presentations at: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfGR40SWnakjyWjfnmFOz-nsmf3_ap_Ec.

12  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Internet can empower women and eradicate inequalities says Cherie Blair on: July 01, 2014, 10:12:15 AM
Cambridge, UK, 1st July 2014 –  “The internet and modern mobile technology enables us to address inequalities between men and women and to drive growth on a global scale as never before,” said Cherie Blair, addressing industry leaders at the Future of Wireless International Conference in Cambridge last night. Speaking as the founder of the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, which helps women build businesses in developing and emerging markets, Mrs Blair urged the audience to harness innovation and forge new collaborations to help eliminate poverty and empower women around the world.

“With limited broadband coverage, the mobile phone is already the primary way many Africans access the internet, with some 84 million internet-enabled mobile devices now in use,” said Cherie Blair. “But women in remote rural areas have even more disadvantage to overcome and without sustainable and scalable investment and intervention, they are in danger of falling still further behind those who do have access to the internet or mobile technology, which means disadvantage as well for their families, their communities and their countries. Making a real dent in this inequality will take cooperation across all sectors - public, private and non-profit.”

Cherie Blair was the guest speaker at the dinner for the Future of Wireless International Conference, organised by Cambridge Wireless (CW) – the leading not-for-profit global community for companies involved in the research, development and application of wireless and mobile technologies – in partnership with the Government’s UKTI (UK Trade & Investment) Department. The conference is focused on how wireless technologies can make a positive change to peoples’ lives and address societal and global challenges. Some 400 industry experts, academics and international development specialists are debating topics from supporting economic development and improving literacy and health, to ensuring public safety, improving the sustainability of the earth’s resources and cultivating entrepreneurship.

“The Cambridge Wireless conference provides a valuable forum for generating new ideas and sparking new collaborations for good purposes,” said Cherie Blair. “For many women, the internet is much more than a convenience; it is a crucial lifeline for them but it also gives all of us the ability, through mentoring, to provide life-changing support with just a few hours of our time. We can use it to reach out across the virtual world to help women to improve their lives and the lives of those around them. The rewards can be incalculable.”

In her address, Cherie Blair pointed to examples of how this wireless technology can work. The Cherie Blair Foundation’s Mentoring Programme has partnered with Qualcomm Wireless Reach™ to use 3G tablets so that business professionals around the world can become mentors to women entrepreneurs in Malaysia. This programme thus enhances women’s skills and knowledge in the areas of business and technology and helps them grow and maintain their own successful businesses.

Another example is the Foundation’s new Skilling for Change programme in partnership with Accenture and CARE International, which involves development of mobile technologies designed to provide easier access to mobile banking services for women entrepreneurs in Rwanda. Focused on business plan development, financial literacy and investor readiness, the programme also provides tailored skills training and online mentoring.

“We were delighted that Cherie Blair came to address our conference dinner and were privileged to hear about the valuable, life-changing work of the Cherie Blair Foundation,” said David Cleevely CBE, Chair of CW. “She has thrown down a challenge for the wireless industry to play its part in empowering and supporting women, their families and communities around the globe. Listening to other speakers during the day at the conference, I know there is a real enthusiasm and commitment to deliver.”

Other speakers at the CW conference include, Sally Uren, Chief Executive at Forum for the Future; Carolina Costa, Managing Director at Orange Innovation UK; Angela Baker, Senior Manager, Qualcomm Wireless Reach; Prof. Simon Saunders, Co-founder, Real Wireless; Steve Jones, Chair of Trustees at the Humanitarian Centre; Finbarr Moynihan, General Manager, Sales and Marketing at MediaTek; and Pete Hutton, EVP and President of Product Groups at ARM.

The 6th Annual CW Future of Wireless International Conference continues today at The Møller Centre and Churchill College in Cambridge, sponsored by: UKTI, The KTN, Accenture, MediaTek, Real Wireless, Qualcomm Wireless Reach, Intel, Aricent, Cushman & Wakefield, Rohde & Schwarz, TTP Group, Microlease/Agilent, Cambridge Consultants, S-Tech Insurance, IC Group, u-blox AG, InterDigital UK, Arkessa, Broadcom, Anite, Ranplan, Jaltek Group, Freescale, Microwave Marketing, Real VNC and Otaniemi.

The presentations and slideshow of event photos are available to view on the CW website. You can view these by clicking on the following link: http://www.cambridgewireless.co.uk/futureofwireless/Resources/
