OMA to Deliver Pioneering Industry Concepts at Mobile World Congress 2014

OMA Demo Day Speaker Line-Up Announced With Keynote Presentations From Industry Leaders Addressing Open Specifications for Next Generation Mobile Services

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/06/14 -- Mobile vendors and operators will come together to present the latest developments in the mobile industry, through insightful presentations from industry leaders and exciting demonstrations, including a life size automotive console, multiple Android devices and the widely speculated Google Glass platform. All of this and more will be taking place at the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) demonstration day, held at the world's largest mobile industry event, the GSMA Mobile World Congress, on Wednesday February 26th, 2014.

Alongside presentations from OMA Board Chairman, Gary K. Jones and OMA Technical Plenary Chairman, Francesco Vadalà, keynote presentations will be taking place from ARM, Comverse, GS1, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Red Bend Software and Telecom Italia. Visitors will gain an exclusive preview into up and coming technologies across the entire wireless value chain, some of which are not yet commercially available.

"We are excited to once again return to Mobile World Congress and demonstrate how OMA Enablers are driving developments in the mobile industry and ultimately how this is enabling broader adoption and delivering open specifications for the Internet of Everything," said Seth Newberry, General Manager of the Open Mobile Alliance.

GS1 will be hosting their exciting Google Glass demo, which will show the power of barcodes on product packaging to receive nutritional information, recipes, coupons and the ability to share the information on social media websites. Cameron Green, B2C Director at GS1 will highlight how OMA standards are critical in enabling a vision of the connected consumer of the future whose shopping trip and product usage are augmented with trusted information and services.

"Consumers are increasingly using mobile devices to research and purchase products. GS1 and OMA standards will allow more consumers to access accurate and trusted product information to help them with their daily lives," said John Phillips, SVP Customer Supply Chain and Logistics at PepsiCo.

Roger Ordman, Director of Product Marketing for Red Bend Software, will present the challenges that the car manufacturers are encountering from the convergence of the mobile and automotive industries, specifically in managing the multitude of software elements in the car. Roger will show that using OMA Device Management (OMA-DM) and specifically the Software Component Management Object (SCOMO) Enabler will allow the complex automotive industry to manage these software elements throughout the lifecycle of the car.

M2M will be under discussion by Zach Shelby, Director of Technology for the ARM Internet of Things Business Unit. Zach was the founder of Sensinode, which was acquired by ARM in 2013 and has been an active participant in defining the OMA Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) Enabler and will give an insightful discussion into the world of M2M and the need for standardization to support the projected growth of this market.

Gil Kazes, Domain Expert - Digital & VAS Services from Comverse, will focus on interoperability among a wide variety of legacy systems, and the convergence of those systems with new IP based services and technologies. The discussion goes on to show the primary goal is to enhance user experience and the operator's ability to build comprehensive communications systems.

George Percivall, Chief Engineer of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), will discuss the latest developments in Location-based Services (LBS) in an exciting presentation. George will look at how OGC and other standards developing organisations are co-operatively developing specifications that raise overall industry capabilities across differing mobile networks, platforms, and devices.

Camillo Carlini, Wireless Devices Innovation Manager at Telecom Italia, along with Luigi Carabiniere, Executive Chairman at 0infinito, will be discussing 'Are Smartphones (still) a vertical industry? Or is Standardisation progressing?' as well as looking at new initiatives for Smartphone openness and developer engagement. Telecom Italia's demonstration will support this presentation and show an innovative Smartphone development device which aims at maximizing the user's Quality of Experience (QoE) and the exploitation of next generation Wireless Networks, through the new OMA framework Generic Open Terminal API.

This unique session can be seen on Wednesday February 26, 2014 in the Theatre District, Hall 8.0, Theatre D, from 15.00-19.00. To register to attend this event, please go to www.mobileworldcongress.com/open-mobile-alliance/.

With the arrival of the Big Data revolution, a data professional is expected to master a broad spectrum of complex domains including data processing, mathematics, programming languages, machine learning techniques, and business knowledge. While this mastery is undoubtedly important, this narrow focus on tool usage has divorced many from the imagination required to solve real-world problems. As the demand for analysis increases, the data science community must transform from tool experts to "data...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...
Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

As enterprises look to take advantage of the cloud, they need to understand the importance of safeguarding their confidential and sensitive data in cloud environments. Enterprises must protect their data from (i) system administrators who don't need to see the data in the clear and (ii) adversaries who become system administrators from stolen credentials. In short, enterprises must take control of their data: The best way to do this is by using advanced encryption, centralized key management and...

Cryptography has become one of the most underappreciated, misunderstood components of technology. It’s too easy for salespeople to dismiss concerns with three letters that nobody wants to question. ‘Yes, of course, we use AES.’ But what exactly are you trusting to be the ultimate guardian of your data? Let’s face it – you probably don’t know. An organic, grass-fed Kobe steak is a far cry from a Big Mac, but they’re both beef, right? Not exactly. Crypto is the same way. The US government require...
