Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 14 ottobre 2018

EV Safe Charge™, a leading provider of EV charging solutions, is thrilled to announce that it has been named to the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School first annual Most Fundable Companies List. EV Safe Charge competed against more than 2500 other early-stage U.S. companies to win the recognition as one of the most fundable companies for private industry investors. As a winner, EV Safe Charge will be profiled on Entrepreneur.com and featured in the November print issue of the magazine. “We are honored that the judges recognized us as a promising, fast-growing company with big ambitions in a hypergrowth industry segment,” said EV Safe Charge Founder and CEO Caradoc Ehrenhalt. “Attracting continued investor interest is a key priority of our team and this prestigious exposure from a leading business school is further validation of our exciting potential. We are grateful for the award and congratulate each of the winners.” The Most Fundable Companies initiative involved a multi-phase assessment that evaluated financial projections, market opportunity, differentiation of offering and the strength of the management team, all of which were used to produce a fundability score. The top 15 companies were selected in partnership with The Venture Alliance based on their readiness for private investment. Honorees on the inaugural list are located across the country and come from a variety of industries. “EV Safe Charge is transforming the charging solutions market with innovative approaches and white-glove service,” continued Ehrenhalt. “With the need for 40 million charging stations around the globe by 20301, our business model aims to capitalize on this staggering growth opportunity in a highly fragmented market,” he concluded.

Sindaco Riace. Ciriani (FdI): conferma immigrazione è grande business

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 2 ottobre 2018

“Un fatto molto grave, le accuse sono pesanti. Ovviamente vale anche per il sindaco di Riace la presunzione di innocenza, ma al di là dell’episodio questo conferma quello che Fratelli d’Italia sostiene da molto tempo, e cioè che l’immigrazione era ed è un grande business. Coloro che hanno predicato le porte aperte, l’accoglienza, in realtà spesso lo facevano perchè coltivavano un business alle spalle di questi disperati”. A dirlo il presidente dei senatori di Fratelli d’Italia, Luca Ciriani, nel corso della trasmissione Skytg24. “Per anni Fratelli d’Italia e Giorgia Meloni hanno chiesto, invano, che le cooperative o le organizzazioni senza scopo di lucro, almeno apparente, che gestiscono questi centri di ospitalità per i migranti fossero costrette a rendicontare euro per euro rispetto all’accoglienza stessa. Questo non è mai avvenuto, consentendo che ci fosse un regime troppo nebuloso che permettesse di fare affari attorno ai 35 euro al giorno che le operative ricevono in cambio di ospitalità” conclude il presidente dei senatori di FdI.

Nuovi modelli di business per “decarbonizzare” la produzione energetica

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 26 settembre 2018

Gli investimenti necessari per la transizione energetica verso modelli più sostenibili dovranno necessariamente aumentare del 30% entro il 2050: dagli attuali 93 trilioni di dollari, già pianificati, si dovrà arrivare a 120 trilioni di dollari. Questi temi saranno al centro delle discussioni che si svolgeranno a Milano durante la World Energy Week dall’8 all’11 ottobre, un evento internazionale organizzato dal Consiglio Mondiale dell’Energia (World Energy Council) che riunirà i leader globali del settore con l’obiettivo di rendere l’industria energetica più sostenibile ed inclusiva. Da oggi al 2050, l’economia mondiale dovrà impegnare in media ogni anno circa il 2% del suo PIL in soluzioni innovative per la decarbonizzazione come fonti rinnovabili, efficienza energetica o ancora nuove tecnologie abilitanti.“Considerata la portata globale della sfida energetica – afferma Marco Margheri, presidente del World Energy Council Italia – risulta sempre più cruciale un dialogo di ampio respiro tra tutti gli stakeholders del settore. In questo spirito, la World Energy Week 2018 rappresenta una piattaforma unica di dialogo internazionale multienergy riunendo più di 400 delegati provenienti da oltre 90 Paesi. Per ampliare questo confronto, saranno presenti le organizzazioni partner della World Energy Week: l’Osservatorio Mediterraneo dell’Energia, il GO-15 (network mondiale dei gestori di rete elettrica), l’Unione per il Mediterraneo e l’Istituto per gli Studi di Politiche Internazionali (ISPI) con Towards MED dialogues. Siamo orgogliosi che l’Italia e Milano siano stati scelti come sede per questa piattaforma di dialogo. Sarà l’occasione per valorizzare la prospettiva e le eccellenze del sistema energetico italiano facendo leva sulla sostenibilità, l’innovazione tecnologica nonché l’interconnessione dei sistemi energetici europei e mediterranei”.Dei 120 trilioni di dollari da investire stimati da IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency), 18 trilioni saranno necessari per migliorare le reti elettriche e la flessibilità dei sistemi energetici. Secondo gli accordi del COP21 di Parigi (2015) per limitare l’aumento della temperatura media globale di 2 gradi centigradi e tornare ai livelli preindustriali, il fabbisogno energetico globale dovrà essere coperto al 60% da fonti rinnovabili e gli investimenti addizionali annui richiesti rispetto a quanto già programmato dovranno ammontare a 1,7 trilioni di dollari al 2050. La quota totale delle energie rinnovabili dovrà aumentare dal 15% dell’offerta totale di energia del 2015 fino anche ai due terzi della produzione totale entro il 2050.Gli incontri della World Energy Week organizzati a Milano tra l’8 e l’11 ottobre permetteranno di riflettere sui temi di maggiore attualità per il settore tra i quali l’integrazione e la resilienza delle infrastrutture energetiche, l’innovazione digitale, la mobilità sostenibile, i meccanismi di finanziamento e i modelli di business innovativi per la transizione energetica. Sono tre gli appuntamenti di grande rilievo: l’Energy Transition Summit (ETS) previsto il 10 ottobre, l’Italian Energy Day (IED) e il World Energy Leaders’ Summit (WELS) programmati in parallelo l’11 ottobre. Per quest’ultimo, un incontro di alto livello strettamente riservato ai ministri, presidenti, amministratori delegati e rappresentanti ministeriali e delle organizzazioni internazionali, sono già confermate una ventina di delegazioni ministeriali provenienti dall’area Euro-mediterranea, dal Medio Oriente e dall’Africa.

The “The Business Use of AI” training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 20 settembre 2018

Your competitors are using AI to analyze sales, what do you do? Organizations today are very enamored with artificial intelligence capabilities to find hidden patterns and tease out issues in data and text. Each organization is trying to find an advantage over its competitors. This explosion of interest in AI poses a challenge to managers for effectively make sense of and use AI effectively.The most nimble and adaptable companies and executives will thrive. Organizations that can rapidly sense and respond to opportunities will seize the advantage in the AI-enabled landscape (Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew Mcafee, HBR).Understanding, organizing, integrating and delivering AI is a key issue today. Businesses must be clear about the use and value of AI to avoid chasing an unachievable and expensive dream.AI carries with it many implications. Jobs change dramatically, current skills become obsolete and displaced, there may exist resistance to change and unrealistic fear of robots taking over as well as other aspects of automation. This was true when automation hit the factory floor in the 1960s and 1970s. Union issues may pale by comparison with a white-collar response. Today pictures of auto assembly and other manufacturing plants show few workers. What detail work remains is slowly but surely giving way to automation.However, the positive side promises better-paying work, newer and more interesting tasks and less physically demanding and boring operations. Managers and professionals should prepare for the coming changes. What happens when AI becomes part of the work process? What can we expect from AI capabilities today? What may happen in the future? Answers to these and other questions are part of the value of this course.

NRI Starts to Develop Robotics Business in Australia, First in the Field of Distance Education

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 3 giugno 2018

Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI), a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, and a parent company of ASG Group Limited (Perth, Australia), today announced that NRI started to implement a trial project for developing robotics business in the field of distance education with Charters Towers School of Distance Education in Queensland, Australia.Queensland government delivers distance education services through seven state schools of distance education which were established to provide a schooling service for geographically isolated and other home based students with limited educational choices.
Additionally, schools of distance education provide services to enhance learning opportunities by offering a wider range of subject choices for mainstream school students (for example, due to limited number of Japanese language teachers, schools of distance education can also provide Japanese language classes for schools in such major towns as Brisbane) and providing a service for by choice home based learners and students in a range of alternative education centres.
In Australia, it is estimated that about from twenty thousand to twenty five thousand students use distance education services, and Charters Towers School of Distance Education is providing services for two thousand and two hundred students.
At present, distance education services provide PCs and tablets displaying texts, pictures and generating voice with headsets. It is hard for teachers to see students’ conditions, level of understanding and environment for study, and it is too hard for the students to talk and play with other students.NRI will introduce a communication system with movable face-to-face communication robots which provide the teacher and the student with free angle views of the other and move. In other words, the robots are able to create a virtual classroom combining schools in remote areas and major towns, and also provide opportunities to go to their classrooms virtually for geographically isolated and/or physically handicapped students.
The new system makes it easy to provide classes for group, enabling teachers to keep tabs on student’s concentration and level of understanding from their expressions and behaviors, eventually improves the quality of education.
Students can naturally have irreplaceable and precious experiences in their childhood like making friends, chitchatting on the latest fashion and so forth in break time between classes.
To sum up, our system will bring various communication opportunities in group life.NRI started the trial project in June, 2018, and plans to complete it in August, 2018, aiming to go live with the service in early 2019, as well as to take the future possibility of application to the field of healthcare and agriculture into consideration.

One Day HIPAA and the Business Associate Seminar

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 maggio 2018

Savannah, United States – June 5th, 2018 This one-day seminar will be addressing how a Business Associate needs to comply with HIPAA and when it applies.The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is myth and what is reality with this law, as there is so much misleading information regarding the do’s and don’ts with HIPAA. I want to add clarity for Business Associates, and also help businesses comply. Not only is this necessary due to the requirements of HIPAA but also to satisfy many customers who require much more these days than just signing a Business Associate Agreement.Times have changed, and unfortunately, many businesses are losing clients or are unable to get new clients due to problems with their compliance program or lack of a compliance program. I will explain real life scenarios as well as best practices and excellent resources you can use to get your house in order before it’s too late.It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2018.I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of working as an outsourced compliance auditor and expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and will thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information and how this ALSO applies to Business Associates.
More importantly, I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights and HIPAA auditors.In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued as well as being audited (these two items tend to go hand in hand)

I nuovi modelli di business e le tecnologie emergenti fanno crescere il mercato FinTech europeo

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 19 maggio 2018

La ricerca di Frost & Sullivan intitolata European FinTech Market Outlook, 2018 delinea i trend per il 2017 e 2018 nel settore Fintech europeo che è in rapida evoluzione. La crescita può essere attribuita a un ecosistema costituito da start-up innovative e tradizionali, istituzioni finanziarie favorevoli alla digitalizzazione, investitori che identificano le opportunità di crescita e regolatori proattivi. L’integrazione di tecnologie emergenti, come Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), big data, analytics e Internet of Things (IoT), consente alle aziende di soddisfare le richieste dei consumatori digitali, tra cui la facilità di utilizzo, l’accesso in mobilità e la personalizzazione. L’integrazione verticale dei servizi finanziari è soggetta a rigide misure di regolamentazione e di conformità; i partecipanti al mercato sono infatti particolarmente attenti alla sicurezza e alla riservatezza dei dati e si avvalgono anche di queste tecnologie avanzate per aumentare i livelli di sicurezza. Lo studio di Frost & Sullivan analizza i trend tecnologi in Europa e il loro impatto sull’industria. Esamina inoltre i trend nei segmenti BankTech, InsurTech, RegTech, PayTech e WealthTech e prevede opportunità di crescita in ciascuno di essi.”Per il futuro possiamo prevedere che le aziende FinTech si concentreranno sempre più e parteciperanno alla ricerca e alla dimostrazione “proof of concept” in tecnologie come blockchain e quantum computing” afferma Deepali Sathe, Senior Industry Analyst, ICT, Frost & Sullivan. “Nel frattempo, gli sviluppi nell’ambito di piattaforme AI e ML creeranno nuove allettanti opportunità.”L’afflusso di start-up e soluzioni innovative trasforma la catena del valore in segmenti come PayTech e InsurTech, i tradizionali partecipanti al mercato riconoscono quindi la necessità di essere agili. Le frequenti modifiche e aggiornamenti delle norme e dei requisiti di conformità, nonché gli eventi come Brexit, evidenziano il bisogno di flessibilità.Poiché nel 2018 le aziende faticano a rispettare le scadenze e a soddisfare i requisiti del regolamento generale sulla protezione dei dati (GDPR) e della direttiva sui servizi di pagamento rivista (PSD2), aumenta la domanda di RegTech, per il quale è prevista una crescita di oltre 500 milioni di dollari nel 2018.”I nuovi modelli di business e la crescita di soluzioni incentrate sul cliente creeranno opportunità per offrire nuovi servizi o X-as-a-Service (XaaS)” osserva Sathe. “Questi modelli automatizzano i processi e si integrano nell’infrastruttura IT esistente per promuovere la crescita globale. Inoltre, molti segmenti di mercato che sono scarsamente o per niente serviti, come le piccole e medie imprese (PMI), gli espatriati e le persone con pochi antecedenti in materia di prestiti, hanno iniziato ad offrire ulteriori opportunità di business.”Le aziende stanno esaminando sempre più le opzioni a disposizione per la realizzazione di partnership e investimenti strategici al fine di garantire un time-to-market più veloce per soddisfare le richieste dei consumatori che desiderano un accesso 24 ore al giorno, 7 giorni su 7 e permettere un approccio omnicale. Le API e l’economia condivisa avranno un impatto in tutto il settore, in quanto il nuovo ecosistema incoraggia un approccio collaborativo.European Fintech Market Outlook, 2018 fa parte del programma globale ICT Growth Partnership Service di Frost & Sullivan.

La School of Management del Politecnico di Milano tra le migliori scuole di business del mondo

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 15 maggio 2018

Milano. L’offerta formativa della School of Management del Politecnico di Milano rivolta agli executive compare ormai stabilmente tra le migliori del mondo. Il ranking 2018 del Financial Times relativo all’Executive education, pubblicato oggi, vede infatti ancora una volta in classifica la SoM, che conferma la sua vocazione fortemente internazionale e innovativa. Sono due i ranking stilati dal prestigioso quotidiano inglese. Il primo riguarda i programmi ‘custom’, cioè l’offerta formativa tagliata ‘su misura’ sulle specifiche esigenze delle aziende clienti ed erogata a manager, quadri e impiegati ad alto potenziale delle imprese stesse: la School of Management del Politecnico di Milano vi compare per l’ottavo anno consecutivo, in una “rosa” di 90 Scuole in tutto il mondo. Il secondo invece è relativo ai programmi ‘open’, cioè quelli rivolti a manager e professionisti che scelgono autonomamente il proprio percorso formativo e di crescita, costruendolo in base all’offerta Management Academy di MIP. Entrata in classifica per la prima volta lo scorso anno, la SoM compare anche nel ranking 2018 tra le migliori del mondo, cioè 80 business school selezionate. Ogni anno il Financial Times redige questi ranking utilizzando numerosi parametri, molti dei quali basati sul giudizio stesso degli executive che hanno partecipato ai corsi, oltre che dei CEO e dei Direttori HR delle aziende che hanno fruito della formazione. La collaborazione con le imprese nella progettazione delle lezioni e la capacità di supportarle anche a conclusione del percorso formativo, la preparazione del corpo docente, l’aula e la faculty fortemente internazionali, la partnership con altre scuole di business di alto livello, i metodi di insegnamento innovativi, il ritorno economico in termini di avanzamento di carriera e livello di stipendio: questi alcune delle caratteristiche più apprezzate della School of Management, che le hanno permesso nuovamente di distinguersi. “La concretezza legata alla conoscenza anche delle procedure industriali, la stretta collaborazione con le imprese, l’attenzione ai temi dell’imprenditorialità sono alcuni degli aspetti che ci caratterizzano a livello internazionale e che ci hanno fatto guadagnare la stima e l’apprezzamento sia delle aziende che dei manager – dichiarano Andrea Sianesi, Dean di MIP Politecnico di Milano, e Alessandro Perego, Direttore del Dipartimento di Ingegneria Gestionale -. A questo crediamo si debba aggiungere la scelta, effettuata ormai alcuni anni fa, di permettere la fruizione dei corsi a distanza secondo il modello dello smart learning, così da consentire una migliore gestione del tempo, sentita da tutti come un problema cruciale”.“Essere in graduatoria anche con l’offerta ‘open’ dimostra inoltre come i nostri programmi Executive siano allineati alle aspettative del mercato, sempre alla ricerca di elementi formativi capaci di aprire la mente sulle nuove potenzialità date dall’evoluzione delle tecnologie e dei modelli di business. La nostra offerta ‘open’- concludono Sianesi e Perego – si concentra infatti sulla frontiera tecnologica e manageriale, arricchita di esperienza concreta e pratica”.

London drops out of top ten most expensive business travel locations in the world

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 21 aprile 2018

Geneva is once again the most expensive location in Europe for business travellers according to research by global mobility experts, ECA International (ECA). On average, the total cost of a standard business trip to Geneva is GBP 554 a day, compared to GBP 448 in London.“Swiss cities once again dominate the most expensive places for business trips in Europe, with five different locations in the top ten,” said Simon Franklin, Daily Rates Manager at ECA International. “Switzerland has always been an expensive nation for business travel, and this year is no different as the Swiss franc has performed very strongly.”
Updated annually, ECA’s Daily Rates report reviews the average costs for hotel accommodation – which makes up the bulk of any daily allowance – as well as meals, drinks, laundry, taxi transport and daily essentials. This information is used by companies to determine daily expense allowances for staff undertaking international business travel.
London meanwhile has seen a drop in the rankings, as have all the UK locations included in the list. The UK capital has dropped out of the top ten most expensive locations in the world for business travel, overtaken by Monaco, Basel and Paris this year. London is now also in sixth place in Europe, down from third the year before.
New York is the only location in the world more expensive for business travel than Geneva. A business trip to New York costs GBP 611 a day on average.Franklin said: “The high demand for hotels in New York is reflected in the premium rate that rooms are currently charged at; averaging GBP 392 per night at a 4 hotel. The high cost of hotels and transport, as well as mandatory 15-20% tipping policies during meals out, contribute to the US city being the most expensive in the world for business travel.”
The price of hotels in London and Paris is much higher than anywhere in Europe, with the exception of some Swiss locations. A room in London costs on average GBP 334 per night in a 4* hotel, making it the 11th most expensive in the world, while Paris costs GBP 364, making it the 5th most expensive in the world.

The Business Beyond Borders

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 9 aprile 2018

During the International Air and Space Fair, in Santiago, Chile (3rd – 7th April), the first BBB event in South America focused on small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and clusters in the aerospace, defence and security sectors. Over the course of FIDAE, BBB facilitated over 350 matchmaking meetings booked between more than 250 companies representing 37 countries.
As highlighted by the Head of the EU Delegation to the Republic of Chile, Ambassador Stella Zervoudaki, it also marked the first time that “the EU has a united B2B meeting space [at FIDAE], proving the importance the EU gives to the aerospace industry”. The EU Ambassador has also met with the Chilean Undersecretary of Telecommunications, Pamela Gidi, at the BBB stand in the EU Pavilion. BBB is a European Commission-funded initiative which helps EU businesses to expand regionally and globally. By facilitating a series of Business-to-Business (B2B), Cluster-to-Cluster (C2C), and Business-to-Cluster (B2C) matchmaking events at the top international trade fairs around the world, the aim of the initiative is for new international business partnerships to be formed and deals to be brokered. Besides the BBB one-to-one matchmaking sessions at the trade fair’s European Pavilion, SMEs and clusters also had the opportunity to participate in technical sessions and workshops on EU space programmes; research and innovation international cooperation; IP protection; business and technology transfer in South America. Other BBB-supported activities included informal networking sessions co-organised by the SME Instrument’s Oversea Trade Fairs Programme, and the BBB Social Media Competition, which sought to help participating companies increase their visibility online.
Davide Venturelli of Archon Techonologies, Italy said the BBB matchmaking sessions provided added-value for his company at FIDAE: “We see potential partnership opportunities with other companies, typically medium-sized ones, which regard Archon as an opportunity to differentiate and expand their position; and for us, it’s an opportunity to solidify our presence in Chile and Latin America, which starts to be significant. SMEs seeking to grow should definitely try the BBB matchmaking sessions.” The next two BBB matchmaking events will take place on 15th-17th May at CeBIT Australia, and on 26th-29th June at AMB Iran; and will be aimed at companies operating in the business technology and metal-cutting technology industries, respectively.
