"We are thrilled that thirteen of Acer's products have been endowed with such a prestigious honor, and equally excited that so many of our product categories are represented among the winners," said Tiffany Huang, President of Corporate Marketing, Business Planning, and Operations at Acer. "Not only are we motivated by our mission to make technology accessible to as many people as possible, but also to provide exceptional experiences via user-centric designs and functionalities on all classes of devices."

Acer's Red Dot Design Award 2018 winners are as follows:

Predator Triton 700 Gaming Notebook

The iF Design Award 2018-winning notebook's svelte 18.9 mm (0.74 inch) thin, 2.45 kg (5.4 pound) aluminum chassis houses a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display and best-in-class computing technologies for just the right balance of size and performance without sacrificing thermals, features or rigidity. Its understated black chassis features a minimalist design, with straight contours and angular front corners.

Predator Galea 500 Gaming Headset

The Predator Galea 500 gaming headset puts gamers right inside the game, giving them the ability to hear and not just see the exact location of elements within the game. It achieves this with Acer's TrueHarmony™ 3D Soundscape technology, and recreates the acoustic space based on the orientation of the player's head, convincing the brain that sound is coming from a fixed direction.

Acer Swift 5 Notebook

The Swift 5 is designed for users who want superb portability, solid performance, and a touch of style. The elegant chassis weighs just 970 g making it ideal for people always on the go. A sophisticated selection of materials include ultra-light magnesium-lithium alloys for the top and bottom covers, and magnesium-aluminum alloys for extra sturdiness on the palm rest area.

Acer Spin 5 Convertible Notebook

The Acer Spin 5 features a major breakthrough in design, namely its speakers. In the past, speakers found on convertible notebooks were easily obstructed while in certain usage modes. Acer overcame this with a practical design that ensures the speakers are never obstructed in any of the device's four modes to ensure uncompromised audio.

Acer Swift 7 Notebook

At just 8.98 mm thin the Acer Swift 7 is the world's thinnest laptop. The premium aluminum unibody is pleasing to the eye and gentle to touch, perfect for modern professionals seeking a sophisticated looking device. It has built-in, blazing-fast 4G LTE connectivity which keeps users productive and always-connected, especially useful for professionals who wish to eliminate tedious wireless connection problems on the road so they can stay focused on the task at hand.

Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Notebook

Built for the casual gamer, the Acer Nitro 5 features a striking design that lets them stand out from the crowd. It sports a mysterious black carbon fiber laser-engraved pattern combined with a menacing red hinge that evokes the spirit of gaming, while also offering outstanding rigidity.

Acer Chromebox CXI3

With solid performance powered by up to 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, the Acer Chromebox CXI3 is a great choice for desktop scenarios in computer labs and libraries. The Acer Chromebox CXI3 features a compact design that fits neatly into all sorts of environments, and can be placed freestanding with the included stand, or secured to the back of the monitor with an optional VESA mounting kit.

Acer Chromebook Tab 10

Designed for education, the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 will be used in K-12 classrooms to expand and enhance student learning by bringing the speed, simplicity and security of Chrome OS into the tablet form factor. It will support augmented reality in the future to allow students to experience new ways of learning with Expeditions AR. Expeditions AR is Google's augmented reality technology that maps the classroom and places 3D objects in it for students to study, making subjects such as biology, geography and astronomy easier to comprehend.

Acer Veriton N Series Desktop

The newest generation of Acer Veriton N modular desktops feature a space-saving, customizable mini PC designed that allows the addition of 1 liter module add-ons for M.2 SSDs, ODDs, HDDs, I/O ports, card readers and graphic cards for easy tool-less expansion and upgradability.

Acer Nitro RG0 Series Gaming Monitor

The Acer RG0 series gaming monitor is small in form, but big on gaming. The Full HD monitor features an incredibly slim 7 mm profile and is designed to enhance the gaming experience with a ZeroFrame design that maximizes its viewable screen area, Radeon Freesync™ technology, vivid IPS panel and 1 ms MPRT.

Acer Nitro VG0 Series Gaming Monitor

The Acer VG0 series gaming monitor is an entry gaming monitor that offers a true-to-life color experience. It is able to do this with Radeon FreeSync™ and IPS technologies, while its ZeroFrame design further enhances the gaming experience by maximizing the viewable screen area. The display sits atop of a sharply-cut three-pronged stand that exudes gaming.

Acer VL7860 Projector

The Acer VL7860 projector raises the bar for home cinema entertainment with laser image quality. It is equipped with an innovative laser diode that provides 3,000 lumens brightness and 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution with 8.3-megapixel on-screen display. The VL7860 features a compact design that allows it be easily set up in a wide range of environments.

Acer C200 Projector

The C200 LED projector features an amazingly compact (110 x 120 x 30 mm) and lightweight (350 g) form factor that makes it ideal for use outdoors, such as during camping or a day at the beach. With its built-in battery, the C200 can go just about anywhere. The C200 is also a handy tool for work on the go, especially when an impromptu presentation is required.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
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.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
