Shaping the Next Wave of Innovation

LG raised the bar in smartphone design with the LG G Flex, the world's first curved, flexible smartphone*. The following awards were bestowed upon LG for this type of innovation, demonstrating its cutting-edge capabilities in design and engineering.

The Global Mobile Award, sponsored by the GSMA Award Committee represented by mobile specialists and analysts, named LG Electronics the Most Innovative Device Manufacturer of the Year at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014. LG showcased eight smartphone models, including LG G Pro 2, LG G Flex, LG G2 mini, LG F Series and LG L Series III under the theme, Knock and Discover Tomorrow.

LG found itself in the international spotlight again at the 2014 iF Design Awards, which recognize and increase public awareness about influential product designs, with 26 products earning honors, including the LG G Flex which was selected as the 2014 iF Gold Award winner. The LG G Flex, along with the LG G2, was commended by iF judges for implementing a new approach to smartphone design for the unique Rear Key feature that houses the volume and power controls in one convenient spot on the back of the device – the most natural and instinctual resting place for one's index finger during voice calls.

With more than 4,800 entries this year, the internationally respected Red Dot Awards are one of the most respected in the design awards industry. The LG G Flex was recognized with the coveted Red Dot "Best of the Best" award, while the LG G2 and LG G Pad 8.3 also received 2014 Red Dot recognitions.

Lastly, at this year's International CES, the LG G2 smartphone earned the CES 2014 Innovation Award distinction in the highly competitive wireless handset category.

"LG G Flex's curved and ergonomic design reinforces LG as a forward-thinker in today's consumer-driven industry," said Chulbae Lee, vice president and head of Mobile Communications Design Lab, LG Mobile Communications Company. "We're honored to receive this type of prestigious endorsement from globally recognized organizations that validate LG's designs as truly breakthrough and indicative of a sign of more envelope-pushing innovation to come."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
