SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE -- (Marketwired) -- 02/11/14 -- Bombardier Aerospace held an inauguration event today, coinciding with the Singapore Airshow, to officially open its new full-scale, company-owned service centre located at Seletar Airport in Singapore. Bombardier welcomed Mr. S. Iswaran, Minister, Prime Minister's office and Second Minister for Home Affairs and for Trade and Industry and Ms. Heather Grant, Canadian High Commissioner to Singapore, as well as more than a hundred other distinguished guests including customers, government officials and members of the Aerospace community to its facility to celebrate this occasion.

The facility features 3,000 sq. meters (32,000 sq. feet) of hangar space, 3,500 sq. meters (38,000 sq. feet) of dedicated ramp, 3,500 sq. meters (38,000 sq. feet) of workshop, warehouse and office space. The service centre includes a staff of over 40 employees and is equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, as well as modifications, avionics installations and aircraft on ground (AOG) support for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft.

"Growing services and support in the Asia-Pacific region is a top priority for Bombardier," said Michel Ouellette, President, Customer Services & Specialized and Amphibious Aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace. "The addition of the Singapore service centre strengthens our expanding presence in the region and provides Bombardier business aircraft customers with high-quality maintenance support and access to the entire network closer to their base of operations."

"We are delighted that Bombardier Aerospace has chosen Singapore to establish its first company-owned and -operated service centre in Asia-Pacific," said Lim Kok Kiang, Assistant Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board. "Bombardier's presence reinforces Singapore's position as the leading aerospace hub in this region. We are firmly committed to the success of Singapore's Aerospace Industry, and will continue to enhance our business environment to ensure that Singapore remains the most compelling location for aerospace companies to build and manage their growing operations in this part of the world."

The new facility is the 10th wholly-owned Bombardier service centre to join the maintenance network, which includes its Amsterdam facility and eight other service centres in North America.

To date, the service centre has received certifications from Singapore, EASA, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Philippines, Malaysia, and is able to support Australian, Isle of Man and FAA registered Bombardier business aircraft models. Hong Kong, China, India and Canada approvals will be obtained during 2014. The facility has been successfully serving aircraft since the end of 2013 and has performed heavy maintenance tasks up to C-Checks on Global aircraft, as well as provided AOG support across the Asia-Pacific in countries such as Thailand, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.
