BANGKOK, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This year INTERMACH, ASEAN's Leading Industrial Machinery and Subcontracting Exhibition, will mark more than 30 years helping build successful business for the Thai and ASEAN manufacturing industry. The 2014 event will be one of the largest and most comprehensive industrial machinery and equipment displays in the region, featuring top global companies from over 40 countries.
INTERMACH is the first international industrial machinery exhibition of the year and coincides perfectly with the industry buying cycle. This enables exhibitors to deliver machinery to clients before the end of the business year, boosting their production efficiency.
Mr. Sanchai Noombunnam, Group Director, UBM Asia (Thailand) the show organizer, said, "The ASEAN Economic Community will help expand and connect businesses with greater efficiency. The cost of doing business in Thailand has risen considerably, with higher production costs coming from upstream production. As a result, products must provide better value, especially items that require precision, accuracy and quality. Thailand needs to manufacture products of greater complexity which are higher priced. Mass production will relocate to other ASEAN countries and items can then be imported back to Thailand for assembly.
"Currently, an emerging industry is the automotive area, but within a few years, there will be more changes, principally involving medical devices and aerospace parts. Production facilities are now being developed in Singapore, Japan, the USA and Europe to address this. Companies are already expanding their production to include subcontracting aerospace & medical advice equipment. These business opportunities will require new machinery and technology that provides customized automation using flexible modular techniques and integrated software. This technology will give entrepreneurs a competitive edge, helping reduce costs and increasing efficiency which will further advance ASEAN as a major manufacturing hub. INTERMACH will have much of this equipment on display at the 2014 show and it's an event you just can't afford to miss," the director added.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
