Hong Kong designs and brand collections exclusively featured
Hong Kong, July 21, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) opened its third Design Gallery shop in Hong Kong today, in the creative industries landmark PMQ in Central. HKTDC Executive Director Fred Lam, Hong Kong Design Centre Board of Directors Chairman Victor Lo, Miss Hong Kong 2013 Grace Chan and a number of Hong Kong designers and brand representatives officiated at the opening ceremony.
HKTDC Design Gallery specifically promotes products created and designed in Hong Kong. The wide variety of products in store also highlights the extraordinary creativity of Hong Kong designers in areas ranging from accessories, watches and household decorations to premium goods and stationery.
The new Design Gallery shop currently showcases some 1,500 products from nearly 80 Hong Kong designers and brands. The area is divided into three themes: Designer Delight, featuring gifts and premiums, houseware, stationery and toys; Accessory Access highlighting handbags and accessories; and Treasure Trove, spotlighting watches and jewellery.
At the opening ceremony, Mr. Lam said, "PMQ is a new landmark for design and creativity. Since its opening, it has turned into a magnet for up-and-coming design talents in the city. PMQ's mission of serving as a start-up platform for designers and a nurturing ground for innovative entrepreneurs dovetails perfectly with Design Gallery's commitment in promoting Hong Kong original designs and brands. It is great that Design Gallery can set up shop in PMQ, so that both can contribute together in supporting Hong Kong's creative industry."
Mr. Lam also pointed out that, in addition to the three physical Design Gallery shops in Hong Kong, the HKTDC has been working towards expanding its sales network, bringing Hong Kong branded products to new points of sale that promise heavy customer traffic and more diversified customer sources. These include Ocean Park, the WWF Visitor Centre and K11 Design Store. The HKTDC is also developing Design Gallery's network in the Chinese mainland. So far, almost 20 points of sale have been successfully set up in cities such as Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Qingdao and Wuhan. Also, through Yahoo's Outlet, Asia Miles' gift redemption programme and mainland online platforms such as "Tmall" and "JD Mall", the HKTDC is introducing Hong Kong designs to more customers.
The three Design Gallery theme units in PMQ occupy a total area of about 1,200 sq ft. The designer has adopted a clean and bright design throughout, to link up the three units. Different colour themes also give each unit a unique ethos and provide customers with a cosy and relaxed shopping experience.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

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.

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 ...

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.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
