With three insightful conferences presented by industry heavy-weights, MTA HANOI will provide professionals from the local industry with a valuable opportunity to source for new technologies to improve their capabilities, gain new knowledge and expand their business networks all in one convenient location.

Mr. BT Tee, Deputy Chief Representative of organiser Singapore Exhibition Services' Representative Office says, "Over the years, MTA Hanoi has quickly established itself as the leading event for the manufacturing industry in Northern Vietnam. We recognise the bright potential the market in this region has to offer and have tailored the event to ensure it provides manufactures in the area with the best and most relevant new technologies that will help level-up capabilities and improve productivity."

Strong International Presence at MTA HANOI 2014

With Vietnam's manufacturing output rising at its fastest pace since April 2011, and the value of the industrial sector in Hanoi expected to rise by 8.1 - 8.9% from 2013, the region is viewed by many in the international machine tool trade as a hotbed for business opportunities.

TRUMPF, Prima Power, DMG Mori, Sodick, Mazak, Hexagon Metrology, NT Tools, Mitutoyo, Bystronic, Star Micronics, Seyi and YG-1 are just some of the international names that make up the more than 70% overseas exhibitor profile, bringing with them "new-in-Vietnam" technologies that will help boost output of the local industry.

Making up a large portion of the overseas exhibits are three international group pavilions from the Czech Republic, Singapore and Taiwan.

Commenting on Singapore Pavilion's participation at MTA HANOI 2014, Mr. Koh Seng Chee, Executive Director of the Singapore Precision Engineering and Tooling Association (SPETA) says, "Vietnam's attractiveness for foreign direct investments (FDI) in the manufacturing sector, and blooming local support industries is certainly a great market for Singapore companies as it presents healthy growth opportunities and good business prospects. As Northern Vietnam's leading manufacturing solutions trade event, MTA HANOI is an ideal platform for industry professionals to source for new equipment and to get acquainted with advancements in technology that will help them improve their capabilities."

Organised by the Precision Machinery Development Association of Taiwan, the Taiwan pavilion features 17 companies showcasing a series of CNC double column machining centers, drilling and tapping machines and video measuring machines amongst others. Mr. Carl C. C. Huang, Secretary General of the pavilion co-ordinator says, "Taiwan is the world's fourth largest machine tool exporter with about 75% of its machine tool production being exported.[1] Over a period of 10 years from 2002 to 2012, exports of Taiwan machine tools has risen by 150%[2]. Known for its high quality, low cost and fast delivery time, "made-in-Taiwan" machine tools are ideal for the still developing industries of Vietnam. Vietnam is therefore an important export market for Taiwan machine tool companies."

Featuring 15 companies, the Czech Republic pavilion is organised through the Export Promotion Program of the Czech Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Hanoi, the consulate of the Czech Republic in Vietnam and with the support and endorsement of Svaz Strojirenske Technologie (SST) the Association of Engineering Technology.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, wil...
