“Siamo estremamente lieti della nomina del Signor Geust a direttore generale. Egli possiede una conoscenza approfondita della società e delle attività aziendali. A seguito della ristrutturazione del resto dell'équipe dirigenziale, il signor Geust potrà contribuire a condurre l'azienda in modo tale da consentirle di implementare il suo piano strategico sprigionando l'enorme potenziale di questa società”, ha dichiarato Timo Tirkkonen, presidente del Consiglio di amministrazione di Rightware. “Desideriamo inoltre ringraziare Tero Sarkkinen per gli anni di servizio che ha prestato quale direttore generale, dalla fondazione sino ad ora, negli anni in cui la società si è affermata e ha consolidato la reputazione dei propri prodotti nel mercato e si è espansa estendendo la propria presenza a tre continenti. Siamo certi che continuerà ad apportare un contributo prezioso alla società nel suo nuovo ruolo.”

Il signor Geust è stato membro del consiglio di amministrazione di Rightware e lavora presso la società dal 2010. Inoltre, il signor Geust ha rivestito la carica di direttore generale di Havainne Oy. Prima di allora, il signor Geust ha lavorato 15 anni per conto di Nokia, dove ha ricoperto diverse cariche tra cui, per ultima, quella di vicepresidente della divisione di Nokia Smartphone N-Series. Il signor Geust, il quale lavorerà dalla sede generale della società in Finlandia, si occuperà dell'espansione delle operazioni aziendali e delle attività di progettazione.

“Quale uno dei fondatori di Rightware, è stato per me un onore poter condurre la società durante i suoi primi anni di attività perché si affermasse quale una delle società più prestigiose del settore in cui operiamo. Dopo aver sviluppato le operazioni della società in Finlandia e in Cina, la mia prossima missione consiste nel fare altrettanto negli Stati Uniti. Nel frattempo, le nostre attività sono cresciute in misura tale da rendere necessaria l'aggiunta di altro personale esecutivo senior in Finlandia. Mi sono adoperato per più di un anno perché Jonas entrasse a far parte del team e sono convinto che egli sarà in grado di promuovere l'ulteriore crescita della società” ha affermato Tero Sarkkinen, fondatore di Rightware. “L'esperienza di Jonas in ambito operativo, le sue doti di leadership e le sue competenze relativamente al lancio di nuove tecnologie su mercati in tutto il mondo lo rendono la persona più adatta a gestire le strategie di crescita accelerate di Rightware per il futuro.”

Si tratta della prima di una serie di avvicendamenti di personale ai vertici della società e di iniziative di ristrutturazione intesi a rafforzare la società consolidandone ulteriormente la posizione a garanzia del successo a lungo termine. Rightware ha inoltre annunciato che:

  • Jussi Tammi è stato nominato vicepresidente della divisione Finanze. Prima di entrare a far parte di Rightware, Tammi deteneva la carica di amministratore finanziario presso EmblaCom in Finlandia.
  • Jari Selin è entrato a far parte della società con la qualifica di direttore della divisione Sviluppo di prodotti Kanzi. Prima di essere assunto da Rightware, Selin ha lavorato come responsabile senior della divisione Progettazione per conto di Nokia. Egli sovrintenderà a tutte le attività di ricerca e sviluppo per Kanzi.

“Detti cambiamenti hanno dato vita, ad oggi, a un gruppo eccezionale di leader esperti con un ricco bagaglio di talenti e competenze e un'ottima reputazione quanto a conseguimento di risultati e raggiungimento di obiettivi” ha dichiarato Timo Tirkkonen, presidente del consiglio di amministrazione.

Rightware ha sviluppato al momento la seconda generazione della sua premiata piattaforma per lo sviluppo di interfacce utente Kanzi. Kanzi ha svolto un ruolo chiave nel rivoluzionare i sistemi di infotainment di bordo nel settore automobilistico con design che hanno riscosso ampio successo per Audi e altre importanti case automobilistiche e fornitori di primo livello, nonché per diversi produttori di smartphone e tablet. La società intende espandersi in maniera aggressiva in mercati nuovi ed emergenti, compresi i settori dell'intrattenimento, dei tablet mobili, delle TV intelligenti e altri segmenti verticali del settore dei dispositivi incorporati.

Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 16th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York June 9-11 will find fresh new content in a new track called PaaS | Containers & Microservices Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We heard for many years how developing nations would be able to develop mobile-phone networks quickly, perhaps even leapfrog developed nations, because their lack of traditional, wired networks would not inhibit them from deploying the new technology. Now there is talk of history repeating itself with the Industrial Internet--a key aspect of the emerging Internet of Things. For example, Guo Ping, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Chinese electronics giant Huawei, said in a recent report from the World Economic Forum, "The Industrial Internet will afford emerging markets a unique opportunity ...
