The occasion was opened by H.E. Mr. Antony Phillipson, British High Commissioner to Singapore. Attendees travelled from countries as far away as the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and India.
Oncam Grandeye’s innovative and patented 360-degree technology was warmly received; guests immediately grasped the benefits that the pioneering technology would bring to their companies.
Total Situational Awareness was the news focus, with a live demonstration that powerfully illustrated how 360-degree surveillance could provide companies in Singapore and the region with an efficient and scalable solution to immediately enhance the safety and security of their businesses—be they concerned with critical infrastructure, retail, banking, transport or any number of other sectors.
“There is no better country to launch our new technology,” said David Hudson MBE, regional president of Oncam Grandeye. “We have invested heavily by opening a new office in Singapore and we will be hiring local tech experts and partnering with Singaporean firms.”
“I congratulate Oncam on opening its Singapore office, which will also serve as its headquarters in Asia-Pacific,” said H.E. Mr. Antony Phillipson, British High Commissioner to Singapore. “The private security industry in the U.K. makes a vital contribution to keeping us safe and secure each and every day. From electronic security technologies such as CCTV and intruder alarms, through to physical security measures and security guarding, our daily lives are now entwined with security measures in many forms. U.K. security expertise has been developed over many years in a number of areas, including counter-terrorism, security guarding and CCTV. The successful delivery of the 2012 London Games and 2014 Glasgow Games are testament to the U.K.’s expertise in safety and security. We are fully committed to supporting the U.K. security industry’s expansion into export markets such as Singapore and the wider region, and are delighted that Oncam has chosen to establish themselves here. I wish the company well in the exciting time they have ahead of them."
Attendees concurred: “I established my company in 1986 and we only represent the highest quality products,” said Dr Il. Sanny Suharli, Group Chairman of Professtama Development Group, a group of companies that concentrates on safety and the security industry. “I have never seen such amazing technology and I will be pleased to take this exciting innovation to Indonesia.”
The event had the support of the UK Trade and Investment office in Singapore.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

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. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
