1  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / New deal for Publishing Technology in Beijing on: August 27, 2014, 06:34:04 AM
Beijing, China, 27th August 2014 – One of China’s most prestigious trade and academic publishers, Zhonghua Book Company, has today announced that it will partner with Publishing Technology China to build a new pub2web powered website.

As part of a government-backed project, the deal will see the creation of a new digital publishing platform and management system, designed to accommodate Zhonghua Book Company’s complete collection of ancient Chinese works, dating back to the publisher’s inception in 1912.

The globally accessible site will be heavily customised in order to carry vertically displayed ancient Chinese text, traditionally viewed as a significant challenge in the digital world, and it will contain supplementary notes and information provided by subject-matter experts to accompany the published works.

With its three thousand year heritage specialising in the humanities sector and the publication of ancient Chinese texts, Zhonghua Book Company becomes the latest high profile name in the Chinese publishing industry to implement Publishing Technology’s global content solutions, as the company expands its presence in the Chinese market.

Jun Xu, President of Zhonghua Book Company said, “This collection will provide our readers with a multi-dimensional knowledge system of ancient Chinese texts, academic works and knowledge references. The new site will present this collection of works, now enhanced with additional knowledge from traditional Chinese culture, in one place, and each text will be closely connected with others within the site, revolutionising the way these texts have previously been presented. This new resource will become an invaluable asset for academic and professional readers and is a significant step toward driving forward our digital publishing goals and changing the way we publish our works in the future.”

Publishing Technology CEO, Michael Cairns, stated: “It is a privilege and honour to be signing this agreement with Zhonghua Book Company at the Beijing International Book Fair, one that marks a significant milestone in our rapidly expanding operations in China. Over the past two years we have successfully implemented advance and pub2web platforms for major Chinese publishers, witnessed a huge rise in the popularity of our CNP eReading platform and grown the Chinese side of our business substantially – we now have 60 members of staff based at our offices in Beijing, compared to just a handful three years ago. We’ve always said that, with the right offering, China is an exciting market to be a part of and this contract is further proof that validates this statement.”

Michael Cairns and Jun Xu will participate in a special signing ceremony at the Beijing International Book Fair on 27 August 2014. The Publishing Technology CEO also gave a speech at the Beijing International Book Fair Forum on 26 August 2014 at 2.30pm.

2  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / High Growth to ‘Hyper Growth' for BriefYourMarket.com on: August 26, 2014, 07:30:38 AM
Derby, UK, 26th August 2014 – The multi-channel marketing business, which specialises in intelligent, preference based newsletters and emails, outgrew its previous offices late last year, moving into new premises on the same site as it sought to accommodate its expanding workforce.

20 employees have been taken on in the last quarter, taking the total to 52, with a further 6 positions currently in recruitment and 6 more filled positions awaiting starting with the company. More are being sought all the time as the firm keeps up with demand from customers, and it is this relentless growth which has led to it being recognised as a “Hyper Growth” company.

High growth is usually defined as a 20 per cent rise in turnover or headcount for three consecutive years – “Hyper Growth” businesses are GrowthAccelerator clients that have achieved this level of growth in just one year.

Rick Palmer, director and co-founder at BriefYourMarket.com says:

“Everyone in the team is very excited to have been identified as one of these high performing, Hyper Growth companies. We are all committed to maintaining this growth which is planned and strategic and we are not resting on our laurels.

“As such, we are delighted to be working with GrowthAccelerator who are helping us to manage our rapid growth. We have ambitious plans to grow further and will be making announcements in the coming weeks regarding key facets of that growth strategy. Right now, we are on the lookout for anyone who thinks they have the talent and ambition to join our team and help us to go onto to new levels of success.”

Capitalising on the recovering economy, Hyper Growth businesses have blazed a trail of exceptional growth over the past year.

GrowthAccelerator identified just 34 Hyper Growth businesses from a representative sample of 500 of its clients, BriefYourMarket.com being one of them. Together these businesses generated £41.9 million in GVA and created 571 jobs. Growth Observatory, the research arm of GrowthAccelerator, undertook in-depth research among 25 of these companies – including psychological profiling of their leaders – to unlock the secret formula for their rapid ascent.

The findings are interpreted by a panel of leading business growth experts from across industry and academia in a report, The Hyper Growth Insights Study.

Stephen Peacock, Director of Operations at GrowthAccelerator commented:

“This study seeks to shed light on the attitude and approach of a select group of leaders from exceptionally high performing businesses. By looking at the nature, characteristics and approach of the leaders behind these businesses, we believe this report makes a valuable contribution to the high growth debate, raising implications for policy and action to stimulate and support future business growth.”

3  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / XXth FIT World Congress: Across in Dialog with Translators on: August 22, 2014, 05:16:22 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 22nd August 2014 – From August 4 to 6, 2014, translators, interpreters, and terminologists from more than 70 countries came together for the world congress of the International Federation of Translators (FIT) in Berlin, Germany. Under the motto, "Man vs. Machine", the opportunities and risks of machine translation (MT) and computer-aided translation (CAT) were discussed in numerous lectures and workshops. Across Systems, manufacturer of a leading translation management system, had its own booth at the accompanying trade exhibition and participated in the lecture program.

"The FIT World Congress, which is held every three years, provides us with an ideal setting for enhancing our understanding of the requirements of the translators for a computer-aided translation system. This is a unique opportunity for personal dialog with translators from the world over", says Tanja Wendling, Head of Marketing and Lead Management at Across Systems. At the congress, 1,600 attendees were able to engage in professional exchange with colleagues and tool providers. There was also plenty of time for networking, e.g. at the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the translators' federation. "After three days of exciting conversations and lectures, we had a lot to take along – what's going on in the industry, what do translators expect from a CAT tool, and where is the machine translation trend headed? Whatever the answers to these questions may be, the conference has clearly shown that although machines will change the practical work of the translator in the long run, they should be viewed as a support option, not as a threat."

The next FIT World Congress will be organized by the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators in 2017 and will be held in Brisbane, Australia.

5  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition: facing data growth effectively on: August 19, 2014, 06:18:08 AM
Siegen, Germany, 19th August 2014 –  The Archive Edition of PoINT Storage Manager is available from now on. By this new and easy to use edition primary storage can be employed more efficiently by archiving inactive data to secondary storage systems. Thus the higher archiving requirements are fulfilled and at the same time high investment costs can be avoided. By supporting versatile storage technologies the software manufacturer, PoINT Software & Systems GmbH, ensures the independence from specific hardware manufacturers. In addition consistent usage of standards provides an investment protection.

The extreme growth of unstructured data leads to an increasing challenge for companies. Due to economical or corresponding technical reasons this cannot be solved by only extending primary storage systems. As an alternative companies are able to archive inactive data (so called cold data) and data to be archived to secondary storage systems especially designed for long-term archival by implementing PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition. The archiving process can be automated on basis of pre-defined policies or manually by a protected web client.

PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition offers three archiving methods: Copy Mode, Data Mover Mode and HSM Mode to archive files transparently to secondary storage. Access to archived files is possible at any time through standard operating system primitives.

Depending on different requirements multiple storage technologies, like hard disk, tape and optical, can be applied to use their particular strength optimally. There is no need for additional software as the PoINT Storage Manager - Archive Edition supports these storage technologies natively.

Furthermore by the Archive Edition of PoINT Storage Manager files can be replicated in an automated manner to storage systems of the same or a different storage technology.

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 optical, hard disk, tape, cloud and object store. Close collaboration with leading hardware manufacturers enables an early support of innovative storage technologies. Besides these complete solutions PoINT also offers its know-how as Toolkits, which can be easily integrated in other applications by a programming interface. Furthermore PoINT projects entire storage solutions and provides consultancy with its long-term and versatile experience.

6  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Further Development of Across: Technology Round Table with Translators on: August 13, 2014, 05:11:41 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 13th August 2014 – Based on the technical improvements of the current version 6 of its translation management system, Across Systems GmbH plans to focus on the translation environment in the development of the successor version. To accommodate the requirements and experiences of users even more effectively, a technology round table will be held for the first time on August 27, 2014, allowing experienced translators to discuss possible and necessary further developments with the Across team.

The workshop will concentrate particularly on the optimization of the Across Personal Edition, the Across edition that is especially designed for translators. The most important agenda items will be determined directly by the participating translators. "The objective of the technology round table is to gain an even better understanding of the needs of our users through direct dialog and to find concrete solution approaches for the further development of the Personal Edition", explains Stefan Kreckwitz, Chief Technology Officer at Across Systems. "With our corporate and LSP advisory board, we are already engaged in ongoing dialog with Across users. In the future, we plan to intensify our collaboration with translators with respect to the product development. Depending on the outcome of the first round table, this form of exchange could even develop into a regular event. Of course, this will not result in any change to our product strategy for the time being: The Across Personal Edition will remain free of charge for freelancers and students."

Further information on the Across Personal Edition is available at www.my-across.net.

8  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.”

He continued: “In addition to helping us evolve as a publisher, become more flexible with our content and offer a range of new services to our customers, the new platform will also be user-centric and will transform discoverability of our content online.”

10  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / IMAGIS chooses Cortus APS1 Processor for Touchscreen Solutions on: July 22, 2014, 04:54:52 AM
Montpellier, France and Suwon-City, Korea, 22nd July 2014. – Cortus, a technology leader in low power, silicon efficient, 32-bit processor IP, and IMAGIS, a specialised touch and haptic solution product provider, announce that they are working together to offer touchscreen designs based on Cortus’ APS1 processor core.

Cortus S.A.S. licenses a range of low power 32-bit processor cores for intelligent connected devices. The cores provide licensees with a scalable choice in embedded computational performance and silicon area to meet a wide variety of application needs.

“The Cortus APS1 is very competitive in performance and power consumption” says Jinkug Lee, Chief Technology Officer of IMAGIS, “In addition, the core is cost effective because of its small size.” He adds, “We have been pleased to work locally with the support of the Cortus Korea office”.

“We are convinced that APS1 is ideal for many touchscreen controller applications”, says Michael Chapman, CEO and President of Cortus, “We have therefore been very pleased that IMAGIS has selected Cortus’ APS1”.

The Cortus family of APS processors starts with the world’s smallest 32-bit core, the APS1, and goes up to the floating point FPS6.

11  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Across LSP Day with Participants from 16 Countries on: July 15, 2014, 05:08:18 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 15th July 2014 – On June 24, Across Systems GmbH held its yearly LSP Day. More than 80 participants from 16 countries attended the first international Across user conference for translation companies. At the conference, specialized lectures mainly conveyed practical knowledge in connection with the use of the translation management system. A special highlight was the presentation of Across Language Server version 6 with its new functions and extensions.

To give international language service providers the opportunity to participate in the conference, this year's lectures were all held in English. After a keynote speech by Gabriele Vollmar, Chairwoman of the German Society for Knowledge Management (GfWM), the new features of the recently released Across version 6 were presented. With its fundamental changes in terms of functionality, performance optimization, and redesign, v6 is an important milestone for Across. The product presentation was followed by further lectures on topics such as the process assistance provided by Across, support as the basis for a good partnership, and a discussion on quality management in the translation process. Alexandros Zekakis of nlg GmbH delivered an interesting case report entitled "From Single Cell to Ecosystem: The Evolution of Across at nlg".

The audience greatly appreciated the colorful program and the opportunity to meet members of the Across team and other participants. "The first international Across LSP conference was a very interesting and productive event I would strongly suggest to anyone interested in learning more about Across. The number of participants, representing 16 different countries allowed also for successful networking, discussions, and knowledge transfer. Across representatives came well prepared with LSP-oriented topics, ranging from technical information and new feature presentations up to consulting. Overall a well-organized event, which we will definitely attend again in the future", says Alexandros Zekakis, Director, Production & Strategic Solutions at nlg GmbH.
