Singapore, Nov 21, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - With the largest annual migration of humans still fresh in the minds of marketers, "Mobility" is a topic that is both timely and profound. Social Mobility has created new markets and mindsets. And with 30% of the world's mobile users living in China and a regional mobile ad market outpacing the world, 2013 will be the year when brands understand the promise of Media Mobility.
The Festival of Media Asia has announced its return to Singapore in March 2013. The inaugural Festival of Media Asia in 2011 was a huge success, bringing together 600 attendees from 23 different countries across Asia and the globe.
The 2013 event will bring together a host of new features for attendees to enjoy including a stronger awards programme, the launch of the global Media Accelerator Programme (M.A.P.) alongside an outstanding line-up of speakers from local markets within Asia. It will run from 3-5 March 2013, at the new W Hotel in Sentosa Cove, Singapore.
"The first Festival of Media Asia was a resounding success, so much so that we have worked really hard to make this second one even more relevant to brands and media outlets in Asia. The theme will address concerns of Asian companies looking at making their mark on the world, as well as being relevant to international companies exploring the potential of markets in Asia," said Charlie Crowe, Founder of the Festival and CEO of C Squared.
The Festival of Media Asia takes place one month after Chinese New Year, the world's largest annual human migration event, placing the issue of mobility fresh in the minds of the region. The rising middle class is already highlighting issues around social mobility and publishers are facing the challenges of content mobility every day when examining the most effective ways to distribute content across multiple platforms.
For that reason, Mobility will be the theme of the Festival of Media Asia. Social mobility has created new markets and mindsets and with 30% of the world's mobile users living in China and a regional mobile ad market outpacing the world, 2013 will be the year when brands understand the promise of Media Mobility in Asia.
Conference topics will reflect the theme, including conversations about brand mobility, business mobility, content mobility and cultural mobility. The conference programme will feature the most powerful media executives, brands, broadcasters, publishers and technologists from across Asia.
Jury Chair for Festival of Media Asia
The Festival of Media Asia also brings with it the Festival of Media Asia Awards, celebrating the best in media thinking and communications across the Asia Pacific region. Last year's inaugural Festival of Media Asia Awards saw over 400 entries, across 16 countries with more than 200 brands represented.
The deadline for Festival of Media Asia Award entries is 30 November 2012. Details of the full list of award categories and any additional information can be found at the website: http://www.festivalofmedia.com/asia/.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
