EquityStory AG Expands to Asia by Opening an Office in Hong Kong

EQS Asia Limited Is Fully Operative as of February 1, 2013

HONG KONG and MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/17/13 -- EquityStory AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) has laid the foundation for a future presence in Asia by establishing EQS Asia Limited as the newest member of the global brand EQS Group. The Hong Kong-based, 100% affiliate has already begun operational activities. With this latest development, the EQS Group continues its international expansion and has established a presence outside of Europe.

Achim Weick, CEO, states: "We have been preparing our Asian market entry for over nine months. I am pleased that we met our internal deadline and already have a fully operative office before the 2013 reporting season. The dynamic development of the Asian economy with its many IPOs will give us more growth potential in the coming next years."

The Hong Kong Stock Exchange's 50-100 annual IPOs and EQS Group's new geographic proximity to mainland China (as well as the nearby Asian-Pacific markets Singapore, Taiwan and others) promise great potential for the EQS Group. In order to comply with international requirements, Asian companies are expanding their investor relations activities. EQS Group's online communications services conveniently meet such requirements, thereby enabling Asian customers to interact with global and domestic investors with the same standards as today's major global companies. EQS Group's international experience and track record, its seal as approved Regulatory Information Service from international stock exchanges and its local presence in Hong Kong are vital factors in its delivering best-practice communication solutions to customers throughout Asia.

Marcus Sultzer has been appointed Managing Director of EQS Asia Limited, having expanded EQS Group's business in Russia and CIS the last four years. Marcus Sultzer: "I look forward to this new opportunity. My experience growing the business in Russia, combined with our new local team in Hong Kong, will offer cutting-edge tools to help to our Asian customers communicate with the financial community in the most effective way."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
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.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed.

In his session at @ThingsExpo...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
