Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 settembre 2019

Connamara Systems, a leading provider of exchange matching engine technology, today announced that it has been retained by MaterialsXchange, a startup aiming to create a digital marketplace for raw materials industries.The first commodities MaterialsXchange will address are dimensional lumber and wood products and this exchange is expected to go live in Q4 of 2019. This market is currently highly fragmented, requiring a complex, cumbersome, and entirely manual process between a buyer and seller to complete transactions, making it ripe for digital disruption. MaterialsXchange will bring the ease of an ecommerce solution combined with the sophistication of the modern capital markets to this industry by utilizing Connamara’s Exchange Platform 3 (EP3) technology, a highly customizable exchange platform product.
Launched by Connamara in March 2019, EP3 offers best-in-class speed and reliability to meet the needs of the most demanding of marketplaces, on-the-fly scaling to address rapid growth in order flow, and self-healing capabilities in order to automatically rebalance order flow in the event of a matching engine failure. EP3 provides enhanced performance, price transparency, and improved liquidity for small-to-midsize exchanges across a wide range of asset classes, both regulated and non-regulated, and is deployable in a private, public, or hybrid-cloud approach.

Half a Million Electric Vehicles Expected to be Sold Globally in 2015

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 febbraio 2015

londonLONDON Tuesday, 17th February, 2015 at 03:00 pm GMT Online, with Complimentary Registration. What is the potential of fuel cell vehicles? What is the expected gasoline and diesel engine mix for 2015? How will the electric vehicles (EVs) market perform in 2015? Frost & Sullivan’s analyst briefing will try to answer all these questions. According to recent analysis, over 480,000 EVs are expected be sold globally in 2015 with Europe and China projected as growth markets to watch out this year. Furthermore, the total EVs are likely to reach 10 million units by 2020 globally. With the automotive industry exploring magnetless traction motor solutions, potential of AC induction motors will be explored. The Asian automakers are taking the fuel cell market to the next level by introducing competitive models which not only compete with electric vehicles but also with conventional vehicles. Emission regulations especially in Europe and North America have made vehicle manufacturers produce fuel efficient and low emission cars. The fuel economy pursuit will bank unprecedentedly on efforts in advanced gasoline engine technologies and power train light weighting, with the application of composite materials on a strength-on-demand approach. “Vehicle manufacturers are not just under pressure to adopt green cars, but also need to find the right powertrain technology mix to bring down the fleet emission average,” says Frost & Sullivan Programme Manager, Anjan Hemanth Kumar. “Passenger car industry is pursuing advanced engine technologies such as downsizing, boosting, cylinder deactivation, advanced injection technologies and exhaust after treatment technologies. It is hard to find the right combination. On the other hand, electrification is a major trend witnessed globally from micro hybrids to battery and fuel cell vehicles.”

We, established corporates, partners of the Startup Europe Partnership and European Digital Forum, publicly reaffirm the need of a vibrant startup scene for Europe to thrive

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 24 novembre 2014

european-unionThe very nature of startups makes them appropriate vehicles for testing and commercialising new technologies, products, services, and business models for the benefit of consumers. Startups are not marginal players in the modern economy. Young firms (five years old or less) accounted for only about 20% of non-financial business sector employment over the past decade, but generated nearly half of all new jobs, according to the OECD. According to SEP Monitor and the Scale-Up Report on UK Economic Growth, a growing number of them are turning into Scaleups, i.e companies able to produce revenue, employment and innovation at a scale.
Therefore, if we take action now to focus on startups and scaleups, we will secure significant growth in jobs, taxes, wealth and the competitive advantage of Europe for generations to come. Why Startups are important to Corporates and viceversa: In an increasingly complex business context, the rules for new value creation have changed. In the New Economy, no organization is an island and the value comes from the network. Value creation will increasingly depend on networks and ecosystems and less on closed systems. The way innovation is done in large companies is changing: it’s become more “open,” and more based on a broader, collaborative “ecosystem.” “Open Innovation”, “co-creation” and “collaboration” have become much more than buzzwords. The best way to embrace this new context is by setting up the bridges to work with startups and paving the way for innovation ecosystems to emerge and develop, so startups are able to scale-up and accelerate the reach to market on our and other agents contribution to this vision. We recognise the importance of startups and local ecosystems as a key engine to grow grass root innovation and job creation.
We emphasise the need of public entities and corporates for the development of local ecosystems, scaleups and startups able to grow and deliver products and services at a global scale.
We recognise the need to play an active role to support the scale-up of the best European startups with the ultimate goal of creating a new generation of large corporates able to become worldwide leaders and innovators.
We recognise our essential role for the support of a dynamic scale-up ecosystem, through a more active role in mentoring, opening our procurement channels and/or evaluating acquisition/acqui-hires as a way to maintain an edge in innovation.
We recognise the importance of sharing best practices among us, with the goal of accelerating the learning curve of intra-preneurship culture within the corporation.
We recognise the need to innovate by adopting open and lean approaches and the opportunity to learn from each other with startups. We recognise that our R&D and innovation efforts need to be coordinated with the innovation potential coming from startup companies.
We recognise the role of European Commission to drive a joint effort through the Startup Europe initiatives such as Startup Europe Partnership and European Digital Forum.
We recognise the need for the European Union to elevate entrepreneurship and investment at the centre of its policies, actions and strategies.

Engine Downsizing Poised for Increased Penetration across Gasoline Engines, Finds Frost & Sullivan

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 Maggio 2012

London Engine downsizing, which has been a major trend in European diesel engines over the past decade, is poised to have a major impact on gasoline engines, which will witness the trend that diesel engines did in terms of engine downsizing and turbocharging 10 years ago. This trend will also have a positive impact on the demand for technologies supporting downsizing such as turbochargers and variable valvetrain.New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, 2011 Original Equipment Manufacturers Strategies for Passenger Vehicle Engine Downsizing in Western Europe, finds that suppliers with complete powertrain development and benchmarking capabilities will gain significance.
The number of cylinders in gasoline engines is likely to decrease only for engines below 1.2 litres. About 35-38 per cent of gasoline engines are likely to be turbocharged by 2018. This high level of turbocharging by European OEMs is likely to help in the market growth of boosting technologies. Legal regulations and end-consumer environmental awareness will motivate the sales of vehicles with small engines. For example, the car scrappage schemes in 2009 reduced the average displacement of engines in Western Europe. Such initiatives will help boost engine downsizing. The addition of supporting technologies such as turbochargers and variable valvetrain technologies are expected to drive costs and this is likely to impact take-up rates in cost-sensitive segments. Downsizing engines results in lower torque output from the engine and, hence, lower transient response. Variable geometry turbocharging (VGT) is a good solution for better torque output, however, introducing VGT at a low cost for gasoline engines will be a challenge. OEMs are likely to experience higher sales of low CO2 emitting vehicles and thus pass on the tax benefits to the end-consumer. This offers excellent scope for selling low emission models such as Ford Focus, Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Golf and Opel/Vauxhall Corsa.
