CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014 Uphold Industry Relevance with New ‘NXT' Elements

SINGAPORE, 13 November 2013 - CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014 is back for another year on 17- 20 June 2014 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, with the spotlight cast on the latest innovative technologies through the entire communications ecosystem. As Asia's largest ICT industry event, CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014 together will feature new elements with three refreshed thematic clusters 'NXT': NXT Connected Services, NXT Cities and NXT Enterprises.

This comes at a time when consumers and businesses in the region are actively exploring innovations in connectivity and mobility, as well as evolving technologies as demand in Big Data, business analytics, cloud and enterprise technology booms.

"Changes in the technological landscape are moving rapidly, with businesses and users demanding greater access, better connectivity and more mobility. NXT @CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT, highlights the innovations and technologies that will enable them to do just that. These will truly reflect the evolving nature of the industry and the trends, opportunities and challenges that are driving the industry forward," says Mr. Victor Wong, Project Director of Communications Events from show organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services.

Drawing on cutting edge technologies that connect people and businesses
With the proliferation of connected devices, NXT Connected Services will demonstrate the enormous potential for the connected life ecosystem as it gathers together the latest cutting-edge technologies in the industry. This cluster will explore how service providers, vendors and manufacturers can provide a personalised connected user experience, through technologies such as Over-the-Top (OTT), Content Delivery Network (CDN), Content Security Management, FTTx and multi-screen. With over one billion Internet users and an annual household Internet penetration growth rate of 15 percent between 2009- 2013[1], Asia has a tremendous market for CDN, OTT and content providers. Appear TV, Conax, EXSET, FaceMe, Geniatech, KAONMEDIA, Leyard Opto-electronic, Tata Communications, Verimatrix and Viaccess-Orca are some enterprises who have confirmed their participation in this space.

NXT Cities will focus on technologies that connect cities together at different touch points. With the emergence of mega-regions and increasing urbanisation rates throughout Asia, connecting cities presents the opportunity to mobilise people, goods and services. NXT Cities will bring together companies that are active in sensor networks and sensing technology, mobility, cloud services, M2M, security, ID recognition technology and more. Here visitors will witness how these driving technologies fit into education, healthcare, utilities, banking and other sectors.

NXT Enterprises will spotlight on services that are designed to improve business operations, including business analytics and cloud services. Enterprise mobility, enterprise social networking tools, communication and collaboration, Apps and many more technologies will be showcased in this zone. NXT Enterprises will enable industry professionals to gain knowledge on how to enhance the performance of businesses whilst profiting on their own potential.

Mr. Morten Solbakken, CEO from Conax, a global provider of content security solutions, says, "It's remarkable how greater connectivity has enabled consumers to have a personalised connected experience anywhere they want, whenever they want with the ability to access content through multiple screens. Innovative technologies that facilitate and enhance the security and smoothness in which content is accessed will further elevate the consumer experience and are fundamental to the successful delivery of high quality digital content."

KAONMEDIA, which is also participating at CommunicAsia, is a technology leader of set-top boxes and residential gateways in the Pay-TV industry. Mr. Tae-Bong Choi, Executive VP of KAONMEDIA comments, "Technology is moving the convergence between the broadcasting and communications industries forward rapidly. It is opening up endless possibilities to enable connectivity between devices in many sectors, from satellite to cable to IPTV. These technological advances will, in turn, bring about greater connectivity with communities around the world."

Gathering the best at Asia's largest industry events
With over 51,000 trade attendees from 100 different countries/regions in 2013, CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT together are clearly recognised as the most important business technology event of the year. This edition saw key industry professionals from Air France, Barclays, Bharti Airtel, Bhutan Telecom, China Telecom, Far EasTone, FPT Telecom, Korea National Police Agency, Parkway Group Healthcare, PTT Exploration & Production, Saudi Telecom Company, TOT Public Company, True Corporation, U Mobile and more.

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
