WBM Technologies Announces the Acquisition of Ricoh Canada Operations in Manitoba

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 luglio 2019

WBM Technologies Inc. and Ricoh Canada Inc. today announced a strategic acquisition that will see WBM take over the Manitoba operations of Ricoh Canada, including the legacy operations of Ikon Canada (previously acquired by Ricoh as part of a global takeover in 2008). The move is effective immediately.
As part of the acquisition, all Manitoba customers will be transitioned and all provincial staff of Ricoh Canada will become a part of the WBM Technologies team, as WBM continues to build one of Canada’s largest and fastest growing Managed Technology Solution Providers (now ranked at #31 on the MSPMentor 501 list of the top managed IT solution providers worldwide).The move is impactful for both the province and the City of Winnipeg as WBM, with its roots in the prairies and a focus on Western Canada, arrives having become one of the fastest growing employers in the technology sector, first reaching a total staff of 100 people in 2011, and now having grown to 314 people as of today’s move.The announcement follows WBM’s recent launch of their newest Infrastructure Operations Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan – a state-of-the-art facility featuring the use of data and predictive analytics in the monitoring and management of transforming digital technology systems, including print, across North America.
The move means that Ricoh customers can continue to expect the same people, technologies, and expert support teams they have worked so closely with for decades, but also the additional capabilities of WBM and the added accountability, investment, and agility of a local partnership. At the same time, enterprises seeking a comprehensive print solution now have access to one of the leading independent managed print providers in North America (WBM is currently ranked among North America’s Top 100 Managed Print Technology Providers by US-based industry group, BEI ProsElite).This is not the first time that WBM and Ricoh have come together to create a broadened local solution provider in Western Canada, as WBM previously acquired the Saskatchewan operations of Ricoh Canada through an acquisition in 2012.

China’s bold ambitions to lead in digital technologies – a challenge for Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 13 aprile 2019

Berlin. China’s efforts at home and abroad to become a global leader in digital technologies is a challenge for Europe. The ambitions of telecommunications giant Huawei to participate in building European 5G networks are just one example of many, say MERICS researchers Kristin Shi-Kupfer and Mareike Ohlberg, authors of a new MERICS study, “China’s digital rise. Challenges for Europe.” Shi-Kupfer, who heads the MERICS research area on politics, society, and media, and research associate Ohlberg show that China’s digital ambitions are state-driven. They examine the close connection within the IT sector between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the state, and private companies and show that China’s digital rise is not only spurred by economic interests but also by political goals to become a leading superpower in research and technology.
Civil-military integration in particular has been on the national agenda of state and party leader Xi Jinping since 2014. For example, China wants to take the lead in dual-use technologies and quantum cryptography, advance its cyber-warfare capabilities, and use Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a weapon. According to the MERICS study, China also wants to use its capabilities domestically to implement its vision of cyber domination and social control. This includes the Social Credit System, which the leadership wants to roll out nationwide in the coming years. For China, digitization is a means to achieve several goals at once: creating new engines of growth, achieving technological independence, social control, and international leadership in digital technologies.
China has invested disproportionately in technological innovation in recent years. For quantum cryptography research alone, China has provided at least an estimated USD 50 billion of funding, that’s ten times as much as the United States has made available. In AI, China filed around 30,000 patents last year, two and a half times more than the US. All these efforts are beginning to pay off: The People’s Republic is already considered the leading digital marketplace and home to a third of all startups with a market evaluation above USD one billion. Soon, the country could become the world leader in digital key technologies. At the same time, Beijing is changing the global technology landscape by pushing blockchain, the Internet of Things and 5G standards and by filling key positions in relevant international institutionHowever, China’s digitization strategy also faces setbacks: Risks to innovation are the increased control of the CCP over private companies and the inefficient allocation of capital. For the foreseeable future, China will remain dependent on foreign core technologies. Western industrialized countries are increasingly concerned about potential security risks, criticizing the lack of data protection and the lack of ethical standards in China. A push back against China’s digitization and technology may only just have begun, say Shi-Kupfer and Ohlberg. But how should Europe deal with these challenges? What consequences does China’s digital progress have for European politics, the economy and security? Shi-Kupfer and Ohlberg say that China could become a serious threat if the country continues its path of seeking technological autonomy, rather than reciprocity and cooperation. The risks for Europe are compounded by the fact that the EU has no coordinated ecosystem for digital innovation and does not speak with one voice on China. If Europe does not catch up on key digital technologies, it risks losing out, or worse getting crushed between China and the US, warn Ohlberg and Shi-Kupfer. European member states would therefore have to make the strengthening of the European digital market a priority, expand cybersecurity cooperation with allied third countries and make data protection and ethical standards prerequisites for cooperation with China.

New technologies in the ocean energy sector

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 20 novembre 2018

In Europe a large variety of concepts have been developed for ocean energy conversion, with more than 200 different devices proposed. In Europe a large variety of concepts have been developed for ocean energy conversion, with more than 200 different devices proposed.
While the ocean energy sector is still at an early stage of development, a new report analyses ten future emerging technologies to generate energy from the ocean tides and waves.An integrated systems approach is necessary for their successful commercialisation.It still takes a level of almost science fiction fantasy to imagine that we can use the oceans’ permanent movement to power our cities and houses.Yet, such ideas are on designer desks, going through demonstrations of viability, towards possible commercial success.
Moving to economically viable ocean energy technologies is a huge step towards decarbonisation and the growth of the blue economy in many coastal areas.With only 17 MW compared to 15.8 GW of offshore wind of operating capacity installed in European waters, mostly as demonstration or first-of-a-kind precommercial projects, every technological solution proposed to bridge the gap between R&D stage and the commercialisation of ocean energy devices can be seen for the time being as a future emerging technology.As part of the European Commission’s internal Low Carbon Energy Observatory (LCEO) project, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) is developing an inventory of Future Emerging Technologies relevant to energy supply.30 experts in the ocean energy analysed the needs for the sector, and the type of innovations to bridge the gap with the market.The new report, Future emerging technologies for the ocean energy sector: innovation and game-changers offers policy makers and all other ocean energy stakeholders an array of innovations that can bring ocean energy to the market, but it still needs further R&D, supported by private, national or European funding, and that would help maintain European leadership in this emerging sector.The experts describe state of advancement of each of the technology family, advantages, technological limitations, as well as their technology readiness level.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 21 aprile 2018

(HyperloopTT | annuncia l’arrivo del primo set di strutture del treno supersonico (una capsula a lievitazione magnetica dentro una struttura a bassa pressione), che viaggia alla velocità del suono, all’interno del centro di ricerca e sviluppo a Tolosa, Francia.
Con un diametro interno di 4 metri, il primo sistema di HyperloopTT in Europa e nel mondo è stato progettato sia per le capsule passeggeri che per i container merci e prevede un percorso di 320 metri, operativo da quest’anno. Inoltre nel 2019 sarà completato un secondo sistema di 1 km, costruito su piloni a un’altezza di 5,8 metri.Entrambi i primi due sistemi francesi saranno utilizzati da HyperloopTT e dalle aziende partner. La capsula passeggeri, che sta per essere ultimata a Carbures in Spagna, sarà consegnata al dipartimento di R&S di HyperloopTT a Tolosa questa Estate per l’assemblaggio e l’integrazione.
Fondata nel 2013, HyperloopTT ha un team di oltre 800 ingegneri, creativi ed esperti di tecnologia – di cui circa 30 italiani – e 40 partner aziendali e universitari in tutto il mondo. HyperloopTT, con sede a Los Angeles, ha uffici ad Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bratislava, Tolosa, Contagem (Brasile) e Barcellona. HyperloopTT ha firmato accordi negli Stati Uniti (primo collegamento interstatale del treno Hyperloop negli USA), in Slovacchia, ad Abu Dhabi, nella Repubblica Ceca, in Francia, India, Indonesia, Brasile e Corea.Bibop Gresta, co-fondatore e presidente di HyperloopTT e anche uno dei fondatori di Digital Magics, dichiara: “Costruire a grandezza naturale significa impegnarsi per l’innovazione a lungo termine. Siamo stati i pionieri della tecnologia e abbiamo dimostrato che è un progetto estremamente affidabile, che è stato assicurato dalla più grande compagnia di assicurazioni al mondo, Munich RE. Abbiamo stretto accordi in 9 Paesi, in cui stiamo lavorando su fattibilità e regolamenti. Oltre al dipartimento di Tolosa, abbiamo anche un centro di ricerca per il trasporto merci in Brasile. Hyperloop non è più futuro, ma è diventato oggi industria reale”.
Dirk Ahlborn, co-fondatore e CEO di HyperloopTT, ha dichiarato: “Cinque anni fa abbiamo deciso di risolvere i problemi più urgenti dei mezzi di trasporto: efficienza, comfort e velocità. Oggi facciamo un importante passo in avanti per iniziare a raggiungere questo obiettivo. Hyperloop è molto più di un treno supersonico; la vera opportunità è creare un sistema efficiente e sicuro con un’esperienza passeggeri senza precedenti”.
Il progetto Hyperloop è una capsula che si libra sospesa, all’interno di una struttura a bassa pressione. Così come per un aereo in alta quota, la capsula incontra meno resistenza. L’aria rimanente di fronte alla capsula viene convogliata verso la parte posteriore della struttura utilizzando un compressore, che consente di raggiungere velocità incredibili fino ad arrivare a oltre 1.200 km/h e con pochissimo consumo di energia elettrica.Il sistema è stato progettato con i massimi standard di sostenibilità, in modo da avere un minimo impatto al suolo. L’intero sistema dei tubi è infatti costruito su piloni, in modo da ridurre i costi di acquisizione dei terreni e garantire l’isolamento da condizioni climatiche e ambientali. La progettazione dei piloni è tale da rendere la struttura a prova di terremoto, nonché autosufficiente in termini energetici. Grazie ai pannelli solari posti lungo tutta la parte superiore delle strutture e grazie a un sofisticato sistema di recupero energetico, Hyperloop è in grado di produrre più elettricità di quanta ne consumi.
