Monday, April 7th, 6pm

In  the  presence  of  the  jury 

Shay Alkalay (Raw Edges), Giulio Cappellini (art director of Cappellini), Giorgio Galli (design director of Timex Group), Sofia Lagerkvist (Front), Jay Osgerby (Barber & Osgerby).

Shortlisted  candidates

A leading, international design industry jury has selected 10 candidates from a long list of 40 to compete for the world's newest design prize, the BE OPEN Young Talent Award.  Since the essence of this project is to promote and integrate young designers into the working world, the jury is comprised of industry professionals who can support the winners in their career development.

The Award is part of BE OPEN's Inside the Academy strand, their innovative approach to supporting creative education from study through to professional practice. The award is an annual grant of €24,000 to support one designer a year's day-to-day living expenses, helping them develop their work at this critical early stage in their career.

Described as an 'incubator for young talent', seeking out designers who have only recently completed their studies and are making their first steps in a design career, the award will allow the winner to continue to work at their own pace, experiment with both practical and conceptual projects and discuss their ideas for production with key contacts supplied by the BE OPEN community, including manufacturers, laboratories, industry professionals, experts and mentors.

The focus for this year's award is industrial design, with its remit to improve on functionality and form.  Three winners will be selected: the main award recipient, the Yelena Baturina prizewinner - a candidate chosen from the shortlist by BE OPEN's founder - and the Web Choice, for which the public can vote online until 17 May 2014 at https://www.facebook.com/beopenawards. A series of exclusive prizewinner trophies, designed on the theme of the egg, to symbolise emerging talent about to hatch, are being created by three of the jury members.  Barber & Osgerby's design for the main award is an egg-shaped bronze shaft; all-women practice Front's design for the Yelena Baturina award is a dinosaur egg; and Raw Edges' design for the Web Choice award is a wooden egg in an ironic trophy style eggcup.

Work by the shortlisted designers, as well as biographical footage, will be revealed through an ingenious installation of around one hundred birdcages, in different shapes and sizes, some old, some new, suspended in the cloister of Università degli Studi di Milano.  Half of them will contain screens showcasing the designers and their work.  The birdcage format is being used to highlight the contrast between the freedom of creativity and the limitations of the real world.  Here the doors to the cages will be left open to show that BE OPEN's Young Talent Award helps unleash creativity, removing some of the constraints of day-to-day living for promising, young designers.

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...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
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.
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise. In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Part...
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
FinTechs use the cloud to operate at the speed and scale of digital financial activity, but are often hindered by the complexity of managing security and compliance in the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Sesh Murthy, co-founder and CTO of Cloud Raxak, showed how proactive and automated cloud security enables FinTechs to leverage the cloud to achieve their business goals. Through business-driven cloud security, FinTechs can speed time-to-market, diminish risk and costs, maintain continu...
CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...
