PARIS, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its 25th anniversary celebrations, MIPIM 2014 will take a look at the next 25 years of the international real estate sector.
Drawing on data and presentations from partners that include the Harvard Business School, the OECD and the European Commission, MIPIM will examine the changing face of international property.
According to the 'Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2014' report by the Urban Land Institute, "The real estate recovery will gain momentum in 2014. This should be good news to an industry that has experienced a recovery of fundamentals that has been much slower than it is used to after a recession."
"The real estate market is adapting to meet the challenges of new economic, demographic and regulatory changes. MIPIM can contribute a forward-looking vision of the sector by drawing on the expertise of partners and influential political and economic personalities in our conference programme and by revealing the very latest developments that are shaping the market," commented MIPIM Director Filippo Rean.
The future of real estate is closely linked to the ups and downs of the economy, changes in financial structures, and also in investor profiles. This is why the MIPIM conference programme will be largely focused on the topic of investment. Among its highlights, the investment company Amundi and Allianz will, for the first time, organise seminars on new trends in real estate investing. Entitled "Strategic and tactical real estate investment: Rethinking asset allocation for long-term investors," the Amundi session will be held on Wednesday, 12 March. For the third consecutive year, the Re-Invest summit will bring together pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and insurance companies to discuss "Global real estate: optimising portfolios by geography, sector and strategy."
Considered one of the major challenges of the 21st century, urban development will also take centre stage. On Wednesday 12 March, during a Master Mind presentation dedicated to the European market, Gerard Mestrallet, CEO of GDF Suez, and Sir Michael Bear, former Mayor of the City of London and Chairman of the Regeneration Investment Organisation, will discuss the opportunities and challenges facing European cities. In the afternoon, a series of conferences will provide an overview of cities and tomorrow's urban infrastructure. Topics on the agenda include city centre residential real estate in which there is renewed interest from professionals, as confirmed by the 5th report on European residential real estate by the German consultancy Patrizia Immobilien. According to the report, published last October, €12.9 billion was invested in this market during the first half of 2013, up 34% over 2012. And the 6th Mayor's Think Tank will bring together mayors and representatives from international cities to discuss the theme of "Autonomous cities: the quest for new resources, from utopia to reality."
Another growing segment - industrial and logistics real estate - is playing an increasingly important role due to the development of e-commerce. MIPIM is devoting three mornings to illustrate this trend. And for the first time, there will be a seminar on medical real estate (clinics and nursing homes). Longer lifetimes and lifestyle changes caused by rapid urbanisation in emerging countries are making the health sector a growing economic driver that is impacting all real estate players.
The current economic recovery naturally varies from one country to another. The MIPIM conference programme will provide an overview of promising markets for the years ahead. One of these is the United Kingdom, which will be covered in a series of special sessions. According to a study from FTI Consulting, 72% of investors and tenants anticipate growing interest in the UK market over the next two years. Russia will also take centre stage with Sergey Kuznetsov, Chief Architect of Moscow, Committee for Architecture and Urban Development of Moscow, presenting the ambitious Greater Moscow project at a special conference.
Other key territories to be showcased throughout MIPIM's extensive conference programme will be Brazil, Turkey, the United States, China and Japan.

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...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

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.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.
