Qatar Science & Technology Park Awards Young 'Techpreneurs' at Finale of the Arab Innovation Academy


DOHA, Qatar, January 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Talented young minds introduce innovative solutions to global problems   

The second edition of the Arab Innovation Academy (AIA), a collaboration between Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP) - part of Qatar Foundation Research, Development and Innovation (QF RDI) - and the European Innovation Academy (EIA), concluded with a grand pitching and graduation ceremony at QSTP on Tuesday, January 15.

AIA is the first and largest entrepreneurship program in the region, aimed at equipping entrepreneurs in Qatar, the MENA region, and the global community with the skillset to build their start-up in just 10 days. The accelerated mode of experiential learning introduced participants to cutting-edge methods and tools in entrepreneurship, from team formation and idea creation to pitching to venture capitalists and angel investors. During the competition, participants developed and launched new tech ventures in a real marketplace, with genuine customer feedback.

The program, which began on January 2, brought together world-renowned technology collaborators; more than 160 participants selected from a pool of over 900 applicants; 25 speakers; and 37 mentors and investors, representing 30 different nationalities. The second edition of AIA also witnessed even greater participation in the program from Arab women.

Commenting on the success of the event, Yosouf Abdulrahman Saleh, Executive Director, QSTP, said: "I'm very proud of what we've achieved in the second edition of AIA, with the majority of the teams completing their projects throughout their journey with us.

"Arab Innovation Academy is one of QSTP's flagship initiatives, by which we follow through on our commitment to support tech-based entrepreneurship ventures in Qatar - through incubation, funding, training, mentorship, and connections to regional and global tech innovation ecosystems. We believe that this program contributes enormously to expanding the economic diversity of Qatar, and in developing its human capital.

"We look forward to educating the public and raising further awareness about the substantial benefits of the AIA program, while encouraging greater participation from the youth of Qatar and the region in our third edition of AIA next year.

Alar Kolk, President, EIA, said: "All of us at the Arab Innovation Academy are proud to have run the second edition of the program, in cooperation with QSTP and Qatar Foundation. This year, we have welcomed a record number of participants from all corners of the MENA region. 

"Here, students develop the skills and confidence needed to develop start-ups from scratch, and learn to create unique value in the world of entrepreneurship and innovation.  

"This unique, world-changing program is only possible through the vision and leadership of Qatar Foundation and QSTP. Our collaboration promises to empower young people to further the development of essential skills needed to transform the long-term prospects of the region."

The start-up ideas produced by the participating teams addressed many global problems - from retaining children's interest in reading and re-utilizing industrial wastes, to simplifying the search for blood donors - and spanned several industries, including health, education, construction, real estate, and tourism.

Two days before the graduation ceremony, the techpreneurs presented their start-up ideas to other participants, mentors, and visitors in a public Startup Expo, answering questions about their products, services, and business concepts. The expo served as a dry run for the teams ahead of the final grand pitching day, where the top 10 teams presented their start-up ideas to investors, received valuable input from the attendees, and were directed toward areas where their business concepts should be further developed.

AIA 2019 first place winner was team 'Salamat-e', who developed a mobile app that serves as a 'health passport'. The app is connected to GPS, and contains information about epidemic diseases in the region of a particular travel destination, as well as prevention methods and necessary vaccinations. The team is composed of Bashar Shawar from Palestine Polytechnic University; Chaimae El Mahdaoui from Mohammed VI University of Health Sciences, Morocco; Polina Ladchenko from Higher School of Economics, Russia; Tareq Osman Babiker from Al Neelain University, Sudan; and Yafa Abd AlRahim from Birzeit University, Palestine.

The second place award went to team 'Fly Stories', who created a platform that provides children with an interactive reading experience, and authors with an outlet to publish their stories. Members of the team include Aboubakr Aqle, Ghadeer Abuoda, and Omer Abad from Hamad Bin Khalifa University, a member of Qatar Foundation, Qatar; Jalila Rashid Al Sharqi from Sultan Qaboos University, Oman; and Tasneem Ismail from Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, Qatar.

Teams 'EyeTalk' and 'WheelsOnClick' tied in third place. 'EyeTalk' presented a concept of a software-hardware system that can help people with disabilities communicate using just their eyes, by blinking. Team members include Abdelkader Keddar and Samia Cherifi from the University of Abou Bakr Belkaïd, Algeria; Abdullah Abdulwakil and Doğukan Aksu from Istanbul University, Turkey; and Shaikha Alsubaey from Qatar University, Qatar.

'WheelsOnClick' created a platform that connects owners of underutilized cars with people in need of cars for a short period. The platform follows the popular Airbnb concept, which users can use to look for, or list cars, for rent. Members of the team include Abhimanyu Saini from Indian Institute of Science, India; Fathalrhman Adam from Al Neelain University, Sudan; Garima Natani from Indian Institute of Technology, India; Omaiyma Hilal Alkathiri from Ibri College of Technology, Oman; and Wisal Ahmed Khatir Bakhat from Alzaiem Alazhari University, Sudan.

Speaking about her AIA experience, winning team member Mahdaoui said: "This opportunity is a life-changing experience for us. It was amazing to meet mentors and people who will support and work with us.

"Even if we just met each other, our harmony was amazing, and I think it's what helped us win first place. We are now a team of entrepreneurs who will work on one project, develop, grow it, and make an impact in our respective countries."

One of the investors, Sander van der Blonk, Venture Partner at Heywood & Sons, commented: "I have great respect for the people who came here as individuals and, after two weeks, came out as members of a team, and have thought through some very interesting and difficult issues, developing solutions and cultivating the beginnings of a start-up. I think the presentations that they gave were fascinating and, if this is what these teams are capable of, then this region has seen nothing yet. There's much more to expect for the future."

Mentors also expressed gratitude for the opportunity to participate in AIA. Ali Al Sahli, a Senior Assistant Engineer involved in software development at Qatar Petroleum, said: "I enjoyed interacting with the participants, from different backgrounds and with different ideologies. The chance to help them improve and seeing their progress were very rewarding."

Display Driver Market Worth $9.1 Billion by 2023 - Exclusive Report by MarketsandMarkets™


CHICAGO, January 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

According to the new market research report on "Display Driver Market by Driver Type (DDIC, TDDI), Package Type (COF, COG), Device (Smartphone, Television, Automotive, Smart Wearables, HMD, Monitor), Display Technology (LCD, OLED), Display Size, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023", published by MarketsandMarkets™, the Display Driver Market is estimated to grow from USD 7.1 billion in 2018 to USD 9.1 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.1% between 2018 and 2023. Increasing demand for OLED and flexible displays and highly priced and advanced display drivers contribute significantly to the growth of the display driver market. Growth in the use of 4K and 8K televisions and availability of UHD content and evolving role of DDICs in individual components and single integration chips also drive the growth of the market for display driver I! Cs.

LCD displays to account for major share in display driver market during forecast period 

LCD displays are likely to hold a major share in the display driver market during the forecast period. Construction of Gen 6 and above facilities by Chinese players, with government support in terms of finance and land offerings, can have significant impact on the global display panel market. China is emerging as a leading country in terms of LCD display production due to the closure of several LCD manufacturing facilities by Samsung and LG Display in the last 3 years. This will increase the production of LCD displays and subsequently increase the demand for LCD-based display drivers for a majority of the devices. However, with high competition in the market and disruption in supply-demand ratio, the market for LCD displays is expected to saturate 2020 onward.

Display driver market for smart wearables to witness highest growth during forecast period 

The display driver market for wearables devices (smartwatches and AR/VR HMDs) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023. Wearables have emerged as a new driving segment in the global display panel market and are used in applications such as consumer, infotainment, military, fitness and gaming, industrial, lifestyle, and healthcare. Demand for smart wearables, especially AR/VR HMDs, is expected to increase rapidly during the forecast period and subsequently boost the display driver market.

South Korea to hold largest size of display driver market during forecast period 

South Korea is expected to account for the highest market share of the display driver market during the forecast period. South Korea accounts for more than 95% of total OLED display panel production owing to which demand for a majority of OLED-based display drivers is emerging from South Korea. With huge investments from Samsung and LG Display in OLED technology and their production expansion, South Korea is expected to dominate the market, in terms of size, during the forecast period. South Korea, however, is expected to witness declined share in the LCD segment during the forecast period, mainly due to the growing demand from China. South Korean players, Samsung and LG Display, closed various LCD panel manufacturing facilities and invested in OLED technology expansion, which ! resulted in the decreased share of South Korea in LCD production.

Key players in the display driver market are Samsung Electronics (South Korea), Novatek Microelectronics (Taiwan), Synaptics (US), Himax Technologies (Taiwan), Silicon Works (South Korea), Sitronix Technology (Taiwan), Raydium Semiconductor (Taiwan), Magnachip Semiconductor (Luxembourg & South Korea), FocalTech (Taiwan), MediaTek (Taiwan), and ROHM Semiconductor (Japan).

Promotur Turismo de Canarias Spearhead an Initiative to Abolish Blue Monday and Combat Fake News


LAS PALMAS, Gran Canaria, January 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

The initiative #stopbluemonday proposes having the third Monday in January become True Monday, the International Day against fake news 

For years, as part of their effort to promote happiness, the Canary Islands have been fighting against Blue Monday, a piece of popular fake news. This is a clear example of fake news in this era that affects the mood of many people around the world every year.

     (Logo: )

This year, the Islands will go one step further to quash Blue Monday once and for all by turning it into True Monday. They will work in the coming months to turn it into the International Day Against Fake News, a day to combat the fake news that sow tension and discord.

The website describes this commitment through a manifesto and includes tips for identifying fake news, measures for promoting happiness and a quiz, so users can check their knowledge.

Goodbye Blue Monday, hello True Monday 

In 2005, Professor Cliff Arnall, from Cardiff University (United Kingdom), declared that the third Monday in January was the year's saddest day. This initiative was part of an advertising campaign for a travel agency.

The Canary Islands managed to get Professor Arnall himself to publicly disavow his Blue Monday creation and join the #StopBlueMonday movement. "It's time to finally stop letting made-up comments, news or formulas manipulate our feelings and for everyone to start improving the climate," said the professor.

In short, the goal of the initiative is to remove the day devoted to sadness from the calendar and, in its place, raise society's awareness of the fight against the type of fake news that created it.

On Monday the 21st, True Monday, the #TrueMonday campaign will be launched internationally on social media to advertise this new initiative.

These bags are not always designed expressly as a diaper bag, as any well-pocketed bag sized in between a child\'s school backpack and adult pro-camping backpack can be used for the purpose. Some are now being made with rigid handles and wheels so that someone can cart one around, allowing that person to hold the baby more firmly, complete more tasks (like opening a door, paying a cashier, or using a phone), and reduce lower back pain. My Child magazine suggests a brightly colored diaper bag is harder to lose and can help combat the \"baby blues\".

Diaper bags are generally small enough to fit on or under a stroller or buggy. There have been fashion trends against large bags, as mothers learn to reduce the number of necessities carried.

PRN: 100 Joker Staxx Makes Its Debut at Playson Sites According to Tunf Fri, 18 Jan 2019 09:43:01 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

100 Joker Staxx Makes Its Debut at Playson Sites According to Tunf


LIMASSOL, Cyprus, January 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Playson is renowned for its ample array of jester-themed slots. With more games starring harlequins and clowns, jacks and jokers than any other provider, these titles are immensely popular with Playson fans. The casino software developer has now added another new game to their arsenal, as 100 Joker Staxx appears at casinos offering their games this week.

There are similarities between this new release and 40 Joker Staxx, which, by and large, features the same gameplay albeit with fewer paylines. Fans of that game will no doubt be delighted to learn that they can play with 100 paylines in this release, with stacked icons galore and most importantly, cheap stakes are available.

Cheap Stakes and Decent Wins

Playson have made 100 Joker Staxx: 100 Lines inexpensive to play. With 100 paylines present on the reels, there are ample chances to bag wins, all for the low cost of 20p per spin. Larger stakes can be wagered, too, with maximum bets capped at £100 a spin. The newly launched casino game offers up a wealth of fruit symbols upon its reels, and these are capable of delivering wins which can rise as high as 5x the total amount wagered. Landing wins with the iconic bells and bars symbols or red and golden sevens can see wins worth up to 12.5x a stake paid out.

Standard Fare for Any Fruit Machine

Although there aren't any special bonuses in 100 Joker Staxx: 100 Lines, there are special symbols which can help players land comfortable and considerable wins. Wild symbols can substitute for all other standard paying symbols in the slot. They take on the form of a jester's hat and can pay out prizes worth up to 50x a bet. Scattered star icons will count and pay out prizes wherever they land on the reels. They are responsible for the non-progressive jackpot cash prize, as well as other top prizes. Landing 5 anywhere on the screen will see a jackpot worth 200x a stake paid out.

The Newest Game in Playson's Arsenal

100 Joker Staxx is not the first game from this provider to feature a jester, and it won't be the last. Alongside this top release are other Fruits & Jokers, Joker Expand, and Joker Staxx games, each with a varying number of paylines, special features, wagers and prizes. Those titles, as well as this new slot game, should now be available to play at all popular Playson casinos.

PRN: ISG Index™: EMEA Sourcing Market Grows 9 Percent in 2018 as Firms Embrace Digital Transformation Fri, 18 Jan 2019 06:50:15 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

ISG Index™: EMEA Sourcing Market Grows 9 Percent in 2018 as Firms Embrace Digital Transformation


Full-year as-a-service contracting rises 48 percent to reach €4.9 billion

Traditional sourcing ACV down 6 percent in 2018 as political and economic uncertainty hits European businesses

UK traditional sourcing falls 27 percent in 2018 on Brexit uncertainty

LONDON, Jan. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The sourcing market in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) grew in the final quarter of 2018 despite unsettling macro-economic and political events across the region, according to the findings of the latest state-of-the-industry report from Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

The EMEA ISG Index™, which measures commercial outsourcing contracts with annual contract value (ACV) of €4 million or more, shows the EMEA market posted combined fourth-quarter ACV of €3.0 billion, an increase of 5 percent from the prior year.

This rise was bolstered by a 44 percent year-on-year increase in as-a-service ACV, to €1.3 billion, as strong demand for digital transformation remained an enterprise imperative. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) in EMEA both performed strongly, posting ACV of €960 million and €331 million, respectively. Traditional sourcing, meanwhile, contracted by 12 percent year-on-year to €1.7 billion.

For the full year, EMEA reached €12.9 billion in ACV, up 9 percent against 2017. Traditional sourcing ACV of €8 billion was down 6 percent year-on-year, but as-a-service grew 48 percent to reach €4.9 billion. The rise in as-a-service sourcing â€�“ which now accounts for 38 percent of total ACV for EMEA â€�“ continued to be driven by demand for SaaS and IaaS, both of which increased by more than 40 percent in 2018.

Steve Hall, partner and president of ISG, said: "Despite ongoing political and economic uncertainty in Europe and resulting business caution, companies are making significant investment in digital technologies to improve their ability to compete and to engage with their customers. This is a clear testament that the tailwinds of digital transformation are stronger than the headwinds of political and economic issues."

Globally, fourth-quarter ACV for the combined global market grew 18 percent, to €9.8 billion. As-a-service ACV pushed to new highs in the fourth quarter, up 43 percent year-on-year, while traditional sourcing inched up 2 percent.

Market Insights (Full Year)

Declines in the UK, DACH and France pulled down the traditional sourcing market in 2018.

Full-year ACV in the UK fell by 27 percent, to €2.5 billion, despite a 5 percent increase in the number of contracts. The traditional sourcing market in the UK has slumped since the Brexit vote in June 2016. Prior to the vote, the UK averaged three €800-million quarters for traditional sourcing per year. Since the vote, only one quarter â€�“ the first quarter of 2017, which included the signing of some exceptionally large mega-deals â€�“ reached that mark.

Traditional sourcing ACV in DACH was down 4 percent in 2018, with a 19 percent drop in contract signings. The economy in DACH slowed in 2018 and fears of a recession have slowed decision-making. The UK Government defeat over the Brexit vote presents a further substantial economic risk to Germany, as well as the UK.

While UK and DACH companies are exercising caution in traditional sourcing decisions, both are increasing their investments in new technologies and as-a-service contracting to improve efficiency and meet consumer demand for new services and channels.

The results of unsettling economic and political factors also are evident in France, where traditional sourcing ACV edged down 3 percent, to €640 million, despite a steeper drop of 13 percent in contract volume. French consumers have turned to online shopping in recent weeks as the Gilet Jaune demonstrations spread, benefiting Amazon and other online retailers and potentially affecting the Retail sector in 2019.     

In the Nordics, traditional sourcing was up 20 percent, to €1.1 billion, with the number of contracts growing by 14 percent. The smaller EMEA markets also showed strength with gains in Southern Europe, Africa/Middle East and Russia/Eastern Europe.

Sector Breakdown (Full Year)

The impact of as-a-service contracting was apparent, with all sectors demonstrating strong year-on-year growth. Only Financial Services, Retail, Manufacturing and the Healthcare & Pharma sectors posted gains in traditional sourcing.

Retail saw the highest combined growth of any sector in EMEA in 2018, with ACV rising 71 percent for the year. Bucking the trend seen elsewhere, traditional sourcing powered this growth, increasing 125 percent.

In all other sectors, as-a-service growth outstripped that of traditional sourcing. Manufacturing, for instance, saw its combined ACV rise 27 percent on the strength of as-a-service growth of 45 percent, while Financial Services saw combined ACV increase 17 percent, with as-a-service surging 53 percent. Traditional sourcing in each sector was up 18 and 9 percent, respectively.

Elsewhere, the Business Services sector saw its combined ACV grow by 30 percent, driven by strong growth in as-a-service.


"Even though the macro environment is more volatile now than a year ago, demand for sourcing remains strong," Hall said. "We believe the industry will see an accelerating growth trend in 2019, driven by a growing appetite for digital transformation, even in the face of unforeseen macro-economic challenges."

PRN: Where to Go in 2019? Why, Miami of Course! Fri, 18 Jan 2019 05:50:14 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Where to Go in 2019? Why, Miami of Course!


MIAMI BEACH, Florida, Jan. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to American cities, Miami is that multi-cultural place where no trip here is ever the same. It's one of the few places where a beach vacation includes trips to world-class museums, art districts, shops, restaurants, and recreational activities. 2019 is the year of Miami, the year to discover what's new - and what's old - in the Magic City, and Catalina Hotel invites you to do so.

Ocean Drive is still an Art Deco landmark with its signature neon-lit streets, but Miami has expanded with celebrity chef-helmed restaurants, world-class museums, and family-friendly attractions that weren't there before. A walk on Lincoln Road is always nostalgic even if it features the ultra-modern 1111 Lincoln Road architectural marvel and all its fabulous tenants and restaurants.

With South Beach as a base, the exploration is endless. An easy ride over the causeway reveals the Miami of 2019, boasting an expansive skyline and a bustling downtown scene. Museum Park, in Downtown Miami, features a 30-acre public park and two major museums--the Perez Art Museum and the Frost Museum of Science, which finally put Miami on the museum map it was missing from for so many years.  

The heartbeat of the downtown area is the bustling Brickell City Centre featuring plenty of daytime and nighttime diversions. Nearby is Little Havana, where old is still old, albeit with a hipster accent thanks to some very hot spots including Ball & Chain, a live music landmark and throwback to old school Havana, and Los Altos, a hidden Little Havana lounge tucked upstairs from a Mexican restaurant favored by Mezcal fans and celebrities alike.

The recently re-designed Design District, where celebs shop for jewelry in Cartier while interior designers look at fabrics in nearby stores and studios for their clients' beach homes, used to be a ghost town at night. Not so much anymore. Nearby in world-renowned Wynwood are gritty warehouses and walls plastered with graffiti. It is possibly Miami's hippest neighborhood with bars, restaurants, shops and a scene straight out of SoHo, NYC circa 1980.

It's impossible to experience all of Miami 2019 or even remnants of Miami 1920 in one jaunt, especially if it includes lazy days on the beach, paddle boarding, beach yoga, stops in Miami Beach's own Wynwood, North Beach, or even Aventura, whose mall is the stuff of shopping legends. Consider a stay at one of Miami Beach's retro-fab hotels which masterfully mix modern with retro so one doesn't forget from where Miami and Miami Beach has come. While modernized to 2019 standards, hotels like the Waterside, the Catalina Hotel, Riviera South Beach, and Oceanside, welcome guests with the warmth of old school Miami an! d the sop histication of 2019 Miami and beyond. Sparkling pools, spacious suites, happening happy hours are among the highlights and comforts that will complement any Miami vacation. That's the magic of Miami no matter what year it may be.

Saxophonist wanted to help get birds breeding


WELLINGTON, New Zealand, Jan. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 2016, Meridian Energy have been the National Partner of the Department of Conservation's Kakapo Recovery Programme (KRP) in their efforts to revive this critically endangered native parrot, but what most people don't know is that there are only 147 left.

Saxophonist wanted to help get birds breeding. All applicants welcome.

As a 100% renewable energy generator, Meridian is incredibly focused on taking care of New Zealand's natural environment and the precious species that inhabit it, including supporting the recovery effort through science, technology and state-of-the-art Smart Eggs that help the incubation process.

Michael Healy, Meridian's Chief Marketing Officer, says, "The trouble is, these are only good once breeding kicks off. Meridian decided some creativity might be needed to give these treasured native parrots with troublesome breeding a helping hand. And by hand, we mean saxophone".

So, Meridian has put a call out to New Zealand to find a talented saxophonist to help save a species with what is widely recognised as the smoothest, most romantic instrument out there.

"We're aware the science behind saxophones and kakapo breeding is as yet untested. But with only 147 of these amazing birds left, at Meridian we'll try anything," says Healy.

The winning saxophonist, whether they're a gifted local or the legend Kenny G himself, will professionally record a song for the kakapo that will be available for download on the Meridian Energy website and handed over to the Kakapo Rangers.

"The response to the campaign to date has been great, and we've received some great entries from keen sax players all over the country. We're still hoping that to attract the main man himself, Kenny G, but we've also got some great local talent who can help these precious birds out."

"Most importantly though, we're really aiming to make sure everyone is aware of the fact there are so few of these birds left -- so it's a privilege to be helping raise more awareness of the plight of the kakapo", says Healy. 

About Meridian

As New Zealand's largest 100% renewable energy generator, and as a retailer, Meridian has always walked hand in hand with the environment.

Meridian is focused on sustainability, which is why the company has adopted the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Meridian is also listed as one of only three New Zealand companies on the Dow Jones Asia-Pacific Sustainability Index.

ABI Research's New Industrial Solution Guides Manufacturers Through Digital Transformation for Long-Term Profitability


18 Transformative Technologies Help Digitize Operations to Create Better Quality Products at Lower Costs

OYSTER BAY, New York, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Global competitive forces are putting pressure on manufacturers to digitize their operations to become more efficient and relevant in the next 10 to 15 years. To help companies through this digital transformation, ABI Research, a market-foresight advisory firm providing strategic guidance on the most compelling transformative technologies, announced today its Industrial Solution with the main goal of enabling manufacturers to become profitable by creating better quality products a! t lower c osts, resulting in better margins and better competitive positioning.  

ABI Research

"The industrial market can no longer scale manufacturing operations by simply adding more workforce, more shifts, expanding factory floors or dropping prices," said Stuart Carlaw, Chief Research Officer at ABI Research. "That's because of global competition, lack of energy, an insufficient labor pool, a convoluted supply chain and global sourcing environment, as well as high amounts of customization put pressure on tooling and reconfiguration. Furthermore, batch runs are getting smaller, thereby manufacturers are getting less lift out of every order."

ABI Research's Industrial Solution encompasses 18 modules that are composed of the most compelling transformative technologies that are interdependent yet not obvious. "When you look at digital transformation in the factory space, it's not just one technology operating in isolation�-it's one technology that builds upon another and another and another," said Carlaw. "ABI Research has found direct linkages between a number of different technologies. For instance, implementing a smart manufacturing platform to eliminate machine downtime, then adding a visualization and simulation package to optimize real-time processes and to bring more machines online by retooling them quickly."

All the modules will be released during the next 18 months beginning this month through June 2020. Each module will include four main research deliverables that are released methodically throughout a three-month period, providing quantitative and qualitative reports to give subscribers of this solution a clear step-by-step strategic direction:

  1. Research Analysis reports: Provide a thematic understanding of the market and a solid grounding within a specific technological development; available as Application Analysis and Technology Analysis reports.
  2. Market Data spreadsheets: Deep quantitative research focusing on what market sizes look like to provide leg! itimate s pin around perspectives and ammunition to make a meaningful difference to business models.
  3. Competitive Assessment reports: Rate individual manufacturers' performances against their competitors and help answer strategic partnership questions: Whom should a company partner with? Whom should a company be aware of? Whom should a company avoid?
  4. Total Lifetime Value Calculator spreadsheets: Allow companies to personalize their own perspectives and make business cases that are bounded in a project that is relevant to what they are specifically accomplishing.

"Total Lifetime Value Calculators give companies the tools to clearly understand how digital transformation initiatives can impact a business in a real-world setting," said C! arlaw. "T he TLVCs also provide valuable guidance on how different initiatives can fit together to provide long term uplift; it's not just about efficiency in the short term."

The 18 modules include:

  • 5G for Industrial Applications
  • Additive Manufacturing in Industrial Applications 
  • Artificial Intelligence in Industrial Applications
  • Augmented Reality in Industrial Applications
  • Autonomous Material Handling in Industrial Applications
  • Blockchain in Industrial Applications
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for Industrial Applications
  • Collaborative Robots in Industrial Applications
  • Data Management in Industrial Applications

  • LPWA in Industrial Applications
  • Machine Vision in Industrial Applications
  • Next Generation Metrology and Inspection in Industrial Applications
  • Next Generation Positioning & Location for Industrial Applications

PRN: Enterprise Holdings Announces Intent to Acquire Travel Technology Innovator Deem Thu, 17 Jan 2019 12:50:23 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Enterprise Holdings Announces Intent to Acquire Travel Technology Innovator Deem


ST. LOUIS, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise Holdings today announced its intent to acquire San Francisco-based Deem â€�“ an innovative managed-travel technology platform that includes Deem Work Fource and Deem Ground Work, a suite of online booking and travel technology products for business travelers, travel managers, travel-management companies and suppliers.

Enterprise Holdings Corporate Brands Logo.

More than 50,000 corporate customers and the world's largest travel-management companies already use Deem's travel and ground transportation software. Upon final acquisition, this transaction would provide Deem with an infusion of capital and resources to help further expand its product roadmap and increase the pace of product development and enhancements.

"Deem's combination of intellectual property and tech talent represents a significant opportunity for Enterprise Holdings to further enhance and expand our portfolio of services," said Greg Stubblefield, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for Enterprise Holdings, which owns the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands.

Travel & Ground Transportation Solutions

Enterprise Holdings, the world's largest car rental company, serves more than 95 percent of the worldwide car rental market and has been a minority investor in Deem since 2016.

Enterprise and Deem have been working together to bring travel and ground transportation solutions to customers. Since 2011, Deem has provided the technology behind Enterprise Holdings' EHIDirect travel booking platform for small and medium-sized corporations. Most recently, Enterprise and Deem partnered together to offer National Car and Driver in China through the National Car Rental brand.

Through Work Fource, Deem provides access to innovative travel technology that makes the corporate travel booking and travel experience more efficient for travelers, corporations and their travel agency partners. Additionally, Deem's Ground Work platform provides a suite of online tools for booking pre-reserved ground transport for corporations and travel management companies.

The acquisition is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019 after satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Deem will continue to operate autonomously from its Silicon Valley headquarters and offer its suite of business travel technology including air and hotel as well as ground transportation options across major rental car, black car, ride-hailing and rail service providers. John F. Rizzo will remain in his role as Chief Executive Officer, as will the rest of the Deem executive team.

"We know the industry wants travel management solutions that transform the traveler experience, while lowering corporations' costs," said Rizzo. "We will continue that mission to provide travelers with a streamlined platform that predicts what they want and need, and that works tirelessly for them in the background."

Krish Panu, Chairman of Deem and Managing Partner of Deem investor, PointGuard Ventures, added, "It has been a privilege to have co-invested with Enterprise Holdings in Deem. With Enterprise's capital and scale, Deem can expand its team and resources to drive its pace of innovation at a much faster rate."

Acquisition & Corporate Venture-Capital Strategy

Enterprise Holdings is owned by the Taylor family of St. Louis and, as a privately held business, will not disclose financial terms of the Deem acquisition. However, Enterprise Holdings' acquisition and corporate venture-capital strategy continues to focus on technologies and business models that not only can accelerate industry-leading transportation solutions, but also customer satisfaction in a rapidly changing marketplace. 

In 2007, Enterprise purchased the National and Alamo brands, its largest acquisition to date. Since 2008, Enterprise has spent almost $2.4 billion making acquisitions and corporate-venture capital investments or commitments in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, Ireland, Spain, Brazil and China. Acquisitions include car rental companies, carshare operations, technology platforms and franchises.

Today, Enterprise Holdings â€�“ based on revenue â€�“ ranks near the top of the global travel industry, ahead of many airlines and most cruise lines, hotels, tour operators and online travel agencies. "We have long admired Deem's commitment to creating innovative, customer-focused solutions, while also building a great team and culture," Stubblefield noted. "We believe this long-term investment will continue to pay dividends worldwide for many years to come."

About Enterprise Holdings
Enterprise Holdings â€�“ through its integrated global network of independent regional subsidiaries and franchises â€�“ operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands at more than 10,000 fully staffed neighborhood and airport locations. Combined, Enterprise Holdings and its affiliate Enterprise Fleet Management accounted for $24.1 billion in revenue and owned 2 million vehicles throughout the world in fiscal year 2018. Enterprise Holdings' regional subsidiaries and Enterprise Fleet Management currently employ 100,000 worldwide. Enterprise Holdings currently is ranked as one of America's Largest Private Companies. Furthermore, if it were publicly traded, Enterprise Holdings would rank on Fortune's list of the 500 largest American public companies.

About Deem
Deem is designed for the entire business travel ecosystem using machine learning, AI and predictive analytics. Deem's suite of tools range from a dynamic traveler booking platform, travel manager cost controls, travel agency service technology, and supplier revenue opportunities, including the world's largest car service affiliate network and operator solutions.

PRN: Food for Thought? The Average Brit Spends £700 on Eating Out Per Year - Here's How to Do It for Less With Budget Meal Ideas in 2019 Thu, 17 Jan 2019 11:52:03 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Food for Thought? The Average Brit Spends £700 on Eating Out Per Year - Here's How to Do It for Less With Budget Meal Ideas in 2019


LONDON, January 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

  • New research has found that Brits dine out at their favourite restaurants at least three times a month, each spending on average £695.76 per year, which equates to 3% of the average take home salary[1]
  • 6% of Brits spend as much as £1,200 per person each year on eating at restaurants
  • While 65% of people put a budget in place for a money-friendly meal, 90% of people struggle to 'always stick to their budget'
  • Sunny has partnered with food influencer, Lindsay's Feast, to create a range of delicious, healthy and budget-friendly recipes to help you recreate your favourite restaurant meals at home this January

As Brits everywhere pledge to make 2019 the year that we're healthier, happier and thriftier, new research uncovers our culinary quirks when it comes to dining out and reveals how to get a head start on your foodie resolutions.

Sunny's research shows that the average Brit dines out three times a month, spending on average £695.76 per person each year. And while most of us go out with a budget in mind, the majority of us find that our eyes are often bigger than our budgets - with 90% saying they spend more than they had planned. The research also found that 43% of Brits eat out the most as a couple, meaning the average couple spends £1,391.52 per year on dining out.

As the average person spends about £22 a head on a meal out, by swapping one night out for one night in per month, Brits could save more than £250 per person - or £500 per couple - each year. Sunny is challenging the nation to #DIYDineOut this January, enlisting the help of Lindsay's Feast to create some jaw-droppingly delicious, quick and easy meals to feed four on a £10 budget so that anyone - even if you're not Mary Berry - can recreate exciting meals out, at home for family and friends.

When it comes to other good intentions, the research shows that more than one in five (23%) Brits pledge to eat more healthily and 21% want to save more money in the New Year, however, more often than not those resolutions are broken. Within the first month, one quarter (25%) break their healthy eating promise and 18% don't save money as planned.

Pasta la vista, baby! 

Italian came top as the UK's favourite cuisine when eating out (22%), particularly among 18-34 year olds (28%) and Londoners (30%). Its popularity also seems to make it the cuisine we're prepared to spend the most on: 21% say they usually spend more than £50 a head - almost £30 more than the average spend and a potential £100+ bill for a couple each time they eat out.

Liverpudlians, however, prefer Chinese (26%), while Brummies opt for the Indian cuisine of the Balti Triangle (22%) and Mancunians look towards the Curry Mile (19%), Bristolians can't make up their minds and are spoilt for choice between Indian, Chinese and Thai (14% each).

       Region                 Favourite cuisine     Birmingham             Indian (22%), Italian (16%), Chinese (15%)     Bristol                Thai, Chinese, Indian (joint 14%)     Cardiff                Italian (25%), Chinese (16%), Italian (15%)     Edinburgh              Indian (22%), Italian (21%), Chinese (16%)     Glasgow                Italian (34%), Chinese (23%), Indian (9%)     Leeds                  Italian (21%), Indian and Chinese (14%)     Liverpool              Chinese (26%), Italian and Indian (13%)     London                 Italian (30%), Indian (17%), Chinese (13%)     Manchester             Chinese (19%), Italian (17%), Indian (15%)                                         Newcastle              Indian (22%), Chinese and Italian (19%)  

Lindsay Radcliffe, food blogger of Lindsay's Feast, said:  

"We live in a foodie culture and while eating out can be fun, exceeding your budget can quickly bite into your savings. With the right know-how, opting to dine in can be one of the easiest ways to save money and start the New Year right.

"Menu planning is a simple yet effective way to ensure you're getting the most out of your food shop. It goes without saying that preparing meals in advance and batch-cooking means you are less likely to rush out at the last-minute and splurge at a restaurant.

"With 43% of Brits dining out the most as a couple and spending about £1,400 per year on meals out, cooking at home is a great way to catch up with your partner, without the hefty bill. I've whipped up five delicious, nutritious and wallet-friendly recipes that you can recreate in your kitchen to wow your friends and family. My recipes demonstrate that it's still possible to eat well and if you dine in just one more night each month, you could save £250 per person a year."

Scott Greever, Managing Director of Sunny, says:    

"Our research reveals that Brits spend almost £700 per person a year on eating out - that's 3% of an average take home salary[1] spent dining out at restaurants. Furthermore, 65% of people plan a budget but 90% of people struggle to keep to it. 43% of Brits eat out as a couple and so spend about £1,400 per year, the same price as a luxury holiday! That's why we've teamed up with Lindsay to show you how dining in just one extra night a month could save each couple £500 per year with fun and cheap meal ideas to get your creative cooking juices flowing.

"We want people to start the New Year as they mean to go on, whether that's trying to eat more healthily or saving that extra bit of money."

PUMA and Maybelline New York Up the Makeup Game with Limited Edition Athleisure-Inspired Collection


NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Global sport brand PUMA and Maybelline New York, the No. 1 international makeup brand, collaborated to launch their first-ever PUMA x Maybelline special-edition collection which fuses beauty, fashion and sport into one high-performance makeup collection. 

PUMA x Maybelline's makeup collaboration was designed with the always-on, do-it-all lifestyle of Generation Z and millennials top of mind. Tapping into the athleisure obsession, Maybelline teamed up with PUMA â€�“ a leader in women's sportswear â€�“ to create the ultimate high performance, street style-inspired makeup collection. "Our young consumer today prioritizes an active lifestyle whether it be career, fitness or personally. She's always on the go, never settles and needs high performance products that keep up with her grind," said Trisha Ayyagari, Deputy General Manager of Maybelline New York. "The PUMA x Maybelline Collection was created to do just that."

Developed with the latest in long-wear technology, the PUMA x Maybelline 12-piece collection features a smudge-proof mascara for all-day fierce lashes, a metallic highlighter for an eye-catching chrome effect and fan-favorite Super Stay Matte Ink long-wear lip color in new limited-edition shades. In addition, Maybelline introduces two new duo sticks to their offerings - a new long-wear matte and metallic eye stick for versatile day to night looks as well as a waterproof color and gloss face stick for a dewy flushed look. The products' multi-use formats come in sleek, on-the-go packaging and make it easy to achieve a complete makeup look or a quick post-workout touch up.
