Press Conference Held in Beijing to Announce Inaugural China (Shanghai) International Technology Fair

SHANGHAI, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On December 6, the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the State Intellectual Property Office of the People's Republic of China and Shanghai's municipal government jointly held a press conference in Beijing announcing the first China (Shanghai) International Technology Fair (CSITF). This inaugural event, which is scheduled to be held in Shanghai between May 8 and 11, 2013, will have as a theme "driving development through innovation, protecting intellectual property and boosting technology trade". CSITF is designed to be a national platform to showcase and exchange international technologies, promote and put into use world standard high-tech applications, help companies and organizations gain international technological support and transform technological innovation into practical and usable results.

The inaugural CSITF will be devoted to three areas: exhibition, forums and transaction services. The exhibition portion of the event will focus on six major technology areas: intelligent manufacturing, next-generation information technology, biotechnology, new energy, new materials as well as energy saving and environment protection, collectively showcasing the best of China's homegrown along with foreign advanced application technologies, as well as high-tech products and applications in the form of end products, models, images and pictures. The scheduled forums will include the opening ceremony, the summit forum, themed professional forums and several transaction service forums, as well as a series of policy promotion conferences, innovation demonstration conferences and project matching sessions. The transaction service part of the event - a highlight of CSITF - brings together the most talented professionals from the leading professional institutions throughout the entire technology transaction ecosystem worldwide under one roof to provide technology consulting on evaluation, transferring and licensing, intellectual property, investment and financing as well as investment promotion services.

Zhou Liujun, director of Department of Trade in Services and Commercial Services of China's Ministry of Commerce, said that CSITF is of great significance in boosting the development of technology trade, in implementing an innovation-driven development strategy nationwide and in speeding up the development of an innovation-driven economy. The fair is also one of the important steps in boosting the development of technology trade. "We aim to encourage and to guide domestic and foreign companies in discussing and negotiating autonomously and equally based on their own supply and demand via the platform and in helping companies avoid and reduce trade risks via economy and trade platforms, and by doing do, provide a benefit to these companies."

Zhou added that China has been running a technology trade deficit for many years. "China's manufacturing and service companies and organizations continue to find it necessary to learn advanced technologies from their foreign peers when setting up and managing their manufacturing facilities as well as during their transition and upgrade processes and the Chinese government also encourages them to do so as a way to improve their competence. As a result, the demand for technology imports is strong in China. The strong demand is testament to the rosy prospects for the development of technology trade in the country."

Zhang Xinsheng, deputy director of the Shanghai Commerce Commission, said that CSITF is committed to innovation in terms of position, goals, products on display, form, service target and performance assessment. CSITF plans to take the lead in hosting both physical and virtual fairs, with the aim of holding physical fairs annually and virtual fairs daily, and in establishing a technology driven service industry chain for technology trade, that is truly trade-centric in relation to trade, finance, human resources as well as consulting and legal services. In addition, CSITF will explore new modes for intellectual property protection (IPP) as it pertains to technology trade in a move to improve China's image for IPP and boost technology trade and legal protection.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In his session at Cloud Expo, Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, provideed economic scenarios that describe how the rapid adoption of software-defined everything including cloud services, SDDC and open networking will change GDP, industry growth, productivity and jobs.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
