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.

As part of its commitment to operators in the Asia-Pacific region, the strategically located service centre forms the foundation for a full-service hub in the region that houses Bombardier's current Singapore Regional Support Office (RSO), and be closely networked with Bombardier's RSOs in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Sydney as well as its parts depots in Beijing, Toyko, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized 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...
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.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
