VMware Aligns Business Mobility Offerings in India to US$2.3B Market Opportunity by 2017

Posted by News Room On Thursday, August 27, 2015 0 comments
VMware, Inc. reiterated its strategy to help customers in India realise the benefits of Business Mobility and transform their business processes. The company’s strategy aims to free businesses from more than a decade of client-server focused IT – which enabled mobile access to a limited number of productivity applications – and now deliver a more user- and application-centric experience.
The total addressable enterprise mobility solutions industry in Asia Pacific, which includes applications, devices, security, middleware, and professional services, is expected to grow from US$22B in 2015 to US$26.7B by 2017. The market in India is also slated to grow from US$1.7B in 2015 to US$2.3B in 2017 over the same period[1].
“With Indian organisations paying close attention to the future of business processes in the mobile-cloud era, we believe that India is on the cusp of the next major technology wave in Asia Pacific,” said Sanjay Deshmukh, general manager, Business Mobility, VMware APJ. “With a new generation of smartphone-powered workers who have easier access to end-user devices and network connectivity, businesses here are prioritising and reorienting themselves around mobile innovation, apps and services.”
“The Asia Pacific market for mobility is in very early stages, with 80 percent of organisations ill-equipped to harness 3rd platform technologies, including Mobility, Cloud, Social and Big Data Analytics, to compete in the market,” said Charles Reed Anderson, Head of Mobility and IoT, IDC Asia Pacific. “We see the next 18 months as a critical period for companies to accelerate efforts and investment in the enterprise mobility space. Companies are currently placing too much emphasis on devices and BYOD. Our recommendation is that businesses increase their investments in security, middleware and infrastructure, to enable better competitive innovation.”
VMware offers a unified hybrid cloud platform that creates business innovation, new business models and delivers new applications instantly and securely to internal and external customers on any device.
“Today, we believe that VMware is the clear leader in business mobility, with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that will enable organisations to adopt true business process transformation, satisfy their employees’ business needs and drive business agility,” Deshmukh added.

Cooler Master launches MasterCase

Posted by News Room On 0 comments
Cooler Master is excited to announce the launch of the MasterCase, the world’s first mid-sized modular tower with exterior expandability. The MasterCase heralds a new family of cases that offer unparalleled control over form and function. It draws inspiration from the MasterConcept, a revolutionary concept case developed at Cooler Master Headquarters in Taipei.
“The MasterConcept represents a vision that every person’s PC case should be unique, and is a first step in a fundamental reimagining of our relationship with our fans and supporters,” said PS Tang, Vice President, Cooler Master. “Inspired by the MasterConcept’s revolutionary approach to interior and exterior modularity, the MasterCase represents the crest of this new wave of case technology.”
The MasterConcept and MasterCase break new ground in the way PCs are designed, made, bought and used. Fundamental to this reimagining is FreeForm. Cooler Master wants users to have absolute control over how their case looks and functions. So FreeForm provides options to adjust the case exterior via the replacement of panels and doors, while also offering unparalleled flexibility for a mid-sized case in terms of interior layout.
Computex 2015 will see Cooler Master debut the MasterCase 5, a 460mm-tall modular tower that comes in three distinct iterations: MasterCase 5, MasterCase Pro 5 and MasterCase Maker 5.“The maker spirit is that curiosity to know how and why things work, and the satisfaction that stems from taking ownership of something you make,” said Roger Lin, Cooler Master’s Chief Executive Officer. “People want unique products to express themselves, that’s human nature.”
As part of a drive to capture the maker spirit earlier this year, Cooler Master invited a team of renowned PC industry veterans, including Richard Surroz from the US, Peter Brands and Richard Kier of the Netherlands, Mathieu Heredia of France, and Ronnie Hara of Brazil (by way of Japan), to Taipei for a week-long workshop on the future of case technology.

Lenovo and YUWA partner together to bring cool-tech to rural community

Posted by News Room On Friday, August 14, 2015 0 comments
Lenovo launched the ‘Pitch to Her’ campaign in association with YUWA, on the eve of India’s 69th Independence Day. YUWA is a social development platform for girls based in Jharkhand that imparts training in football, provides free education and creates awareness about social evils like child marriage and domestic violence.  As part of this initiative, Lenovo is calling the brightest minds in India to hack real world issues with technology and propose interesting ideas of change.  Last year, Lenovo cheered for YUWA and brought their story to millions of Indians as the YUWA girls they took on the world’s best in the USA Cup – one of the most reputed international football tournaments for young girls in the world.
The website www.pitchtoher.com will give people across India an opportunity to field innovative and technology ideas to YUWA to improve lives of rural girls and the community in Hutup village, Jharkhand. What’s special is that the entries will be judged by an effervescent bunch of YUWA girls and winners will get an internship funded by Lenovo at YUWA to make these ideas come alive in the real world. Through ‘Pitch to her’, team YUWA is looking to unleash simple, practical yet quirky solutions that can involve anything from art to music to product design or even utility apps that can be implemented within just 4 to 6 weeks. The volunteers can pitch their ideas by registering on the microsite, http://www.pitchtoher.com/pitch-now. Selected people will then be invited to visit Hutup for a sponsored internship with Lenovo YUWA along with a certification.
“This is a great opportunity for people to unleash their creativity and present out-of-the-box ideas that will get them to both, experience a slice of life with the YUWA team at Hutup and be a part of driving change in one of the most disadvantaged parts of the country.  People know the YUWA girls for football, but off the field they’re every bit as impressive.  They’re changing their own lives and the lives of girls in their communities.  We’re thrilled to partner with Lenovo to empower girls to connect them to a wider community, to have some fun and to invite you to join us! Society teaches girls to fit in. YUWA coaches girls to stand out.  Join us by pitching your ideas today,” said,  Franz Gastler, Executive Director and Co-Founder of YUWA.
Speaking about this association, Bhaskar Choudhuri, Director, Marketing, Lenovo India said, “We are proud of our association with the YUWA girls. Despite hailing from a small town like Hutup in Jharkhand, they have the required firepower and understand that technology gives them the required platform to achieve their dreams. The primary objective of ‘Pitch to Her’ is to engage young individuals towards empowering the YUWA girls and in a way create an unforgettable, fun experience for these volunteers. ”
The high intensity pitching process kicks off on Independence Day, with a tournament that will be filmed by the YUWA girls using aerial cameras attached to balloons. To make the pitch more powerful and understand the daily challenges faced by the girls, volunteers can interact with the girls via Skype or Google Hangout before making the final submission. Post the submission, the best ideas will be chosen based on practicality and creativity. These ideas will then be implemented over few weeks (need exact time line) by YUWA, the volunteers and the girls themselves. The volunteers get to experience the social structure these girls live in and tackle and thus get sensitized to the world of these simple but strong rural girls of Jharkhand. They will go back with a certification, but more importantly with a sense of accomplishment of being able to make a small but distinct impact to the lives of the YUWA girls.
