New York, New York – The ability to conduct superior long-range strike operations has long given the US an important military advantage. But the DoD’s long-range strike “family of systems” (land-based bombers, carrier-based strike aircraft, cruise missiles and supporting airborne EA platforms) is in critical need of an upgrade, amidst fears that the US is currently at risk of losing its ability to effectively penetrate anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) battle networks.

In his January 2011 speech on the defense budget Secretary Gates stated “It is important that we begin this project now to ensure that a new bomber can be ready before the current again fleet goes out of service. The follow on bomber represents a key component of a joint portfolio of conventional deep strike capabilities – an area that should be a high priority for future defense investment given the anti-access challenges our military faces”

In response to the demand for greater detail on these new requirements and future programs IDGA is running Long-Range Strike Summit to discuss strategic capabilities and the need for an updated family of systems. Most importantly this event will focus on the joint service strategy that is critical to meeting the overarching objective of global access.

One of the featured speakers at the Long-Range Strike Summit is The Honorable Dr. Donald Cook, Deputy Administrator for Defense Programs, National Nuclear Security Administration, speaking of the Science and technology advancements for improved maintenance of nuclear munitions and rapid response capabilities for the DoD including:

Maintaining and enhancing the safety, security and reliability of the US nuclear weapons stockpile
Current efforts to revitalize the entire nuclear weapons complex to be smaller, safer, more secure and more efficient.

The summit also offers a Pre Summit Focus day that will present cutting edge propulsion technology to improve the range and effectiveness of long-range strike and supporting ISR capabilities.

IDGA’s Long-Range Summit takes place in Washington, DC from September 12-14, 2011. For more information or to register please visit www.longrangestrike.com

Post Cloud Computing Summit 2011

Friday, June 24th, 2011

It’s bright and sunny in the cloud front”. Lux Rao, National Manager –Cloud Consulting Services, HP, quipped, starting the proceedings of 2nd Annual Cloud Computing Summit with a bang, bringing out the beautiful oxymoron which describes the present state of the cloud. While Cloud Computing has gone far beyond being a fad, the picture is still cloudy if we bring in the challenges involved in implementation. Lux pointed out that while what of cloud computing has been settled, the question of when and how still remains.

Narsipur Amarnath, Senior Architect, Yahoo addressed the first morning session on how Cloud Computing can be used to address Internet scale computing needs. He pointed at the inevitable fixed budget trade-off essential in balancing Agility and Stability. With more than 38,000 servers and 170 peta bytes of storage, he walked the audience through Yahoo’s Cloud Architecture with Hadoop Clusters. Internet Scale encompassed handling asymptotic behavior for corner cases & boundary conditions to cope with the increasing complexity of the systems.

Social Enterprise


The energy levels surged as Steve McWhirter, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Sales, Asia Pacific, Salesforce took over the podium in front of a visibly excited audience to deliver his keynote on “Cloud 2- The Next Generation of Cloud Computing”. Steve pointed out how cloud computing represented the natural progression from Mainframe to Client-server. He pointed out its cost advantages, as companies are able to reduce their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by 54%. He also highlighted the impending shift from Waterfall to Agile development.

In a social enterprise, you can become a friend of documents”, Steve teased amusingly, showcasing the amazing possibilities that emerge from harnessing social technologies within enterprises. He also brought to light Cloud’s greener side as it is 95 % more energy efficient than on-premise systems. “We are entering the Post-PC apps era”, Steve declared, with the growth of next generation devices. He pointed out to a Salesforce study titled, Post PC revolutions – Is India Inc ready? which stated that India would have 205 million mobile workers by 2015.

Telcos hovering around the Cloud


This was followed by a panel discussion on Driving telcos in the cloud-space, moderated by Sridhar T Pai, CEO, Tonse Telecom. Sethu Madhavan Srinivasan, Director Marketing and Strategy, Huawei Telecommuncation addressed the need to bridge the Web 2.0 world with the Telecom world, who are no longer satisfied with the traditional plumbing role, through a social Community Map layer. With live examples, he talked about Huawei’s Single Cloud, which unifies the Service Cloud with the Enterprise Cloud. He used the metaphor of a digital shopping mall to explain the nature of Single Cloud. He pointed out that the transformation of IP based networks to Cloud remained one of the big challenges. Lux Rao corroborated the evolution of telecom, which once used to run last mile operations, has shifted towards distribution of IT services. He advised the telcos to invest ahead of the curve.

The journey to the cloud has to be a holistic journey involving the transformation of the organization”, Lux Rao shared from his personal experience over the challenges involved in adopting the Cloud. The discussion veered towards the standardization, which went together with openness, as the panelists enthused about DMTF and SNIA’s cloud efforts. The panelists voiced their support towards an Open Cloud Architecture based on X86 hardware. To an audience comment about the organic evolution of technology, the panelists opined that the regulatory environment also played a major role in deciding the course of evolution.

ERP on Cloud


Shyaam Sunder, Chief Knowledge Officer, Ramco Systems addressed the drivers behind the shift to the cloud. In response to the debate on standardization, he averred that markets often do not wait for standards in perfecting the solutions offered. He recollected the pioneering efforts of IONA towards standardization of the erstwhile CORBA architecture. He highlighted the transition from time dependency to time sensitivity, approaching towards Time Criticality. He showcased Ramco’s gateway products such as Zero Touch and Switch-on Analytics which enable enterprises to take baby steps towards the cloud world. He contrasted the ERPimplementation of the yesteryears with the Cloud, where firms, which previously had to implement ERP first in order to install Analytics, now could switch on Analytics as they proceeded with the implementation.

While integration is implemented today through EDI and Web-services, Cloud ERP integration would be WSO2 compliant in the future. He averred that Cloud would be able to bring down the implementation time. He corroborated the benefits of multi-tenancy, through standardization and economics of scale, which has been the fundamental compulsion for an organization to move over to the Cloud. Every time the finance minister announces the budget change, the change can be modeled into the application through one central activity for the benefit of the subscribers. Every firm has a distinctive approach to the Cloud. Private Cloud would be preferred when business model is unique and does not lend itself to easy productization with standard ERP delivery. Business data is not contained in the metadata of the application and products that are available. Vendor is unable to provide resources time-critically. Financial impact of time criticality is cost-structure elasticity, being able to pull and push the components into it.

He also introduced Community Cloud, where any group of people can be grouped into a Community Cloud. It is presently used in the Aviation industry to subscribe to the industry specific templates through the Cloud. He advised the need to take baby steps as and when one is comfortable so that one becomes proficient with using Cloud based solution, either through a general ledger or inventory of purchase applications and then move bigger. One doesn’t have to take the great leap like Lord Hanuman did when he saw the sun up there and thought it to be a big orange.

To an audience question about metadata conceptualization challenge in Cloud, he pointed out such a challenge exists as there is ambiguity about developing use-cases. The four modes of intermediation-disintermediation, new intermediation and re-intermediation and intermediation constantly evolve as an account of new technology development shifting technologies of today to oblivion. As long as this happens, metadata conceptualization would remain a challenge. It is impossible to completely simulate every use-case that is going to happen in the next ten years. If one could do that, quarter and quarter predictability of profits should also be possible. Businesses cannot be run like a metronome. The principal dependency is the ability to articulate the metadata, which is application independent.

Ashish Varlekar, Head of Microsoft Practice & Alliance Manager, L&T Infotech walked the audience through a case study which involved a succes sful implementation of a performance management system built over Azure platform. He highlighted the Load Balancing features of PaaS and L&T’s Silver Line application to control and manage PaaS Apps.

Subu Iyer, Section Manager, IPG R&D Hub, HP presented his session on the future of printing in cloud. By 2012, Internet will be the biggest driver of pages, with 35 % of the pages being printed from the Web. He talked at length about Web connected printers which possessed email addresses for printing, and Driverless printers which can print documents anywhere, anytime.

The Afternoon session began with a panel discussion on Evaluating key emerging markets for improved strategy, moderated by Mani Doraisamy, Co-Founder & CTO, Orange Scape. Jyotish Kumar Ghosh, Sr. VP & Head IT Services, Sify presented an interesting case study on the deployment of cloud at Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority. Mandar Naik, Director, Platform Strategy, Microsoft talked about cloud’s eventual development defined in terms of one- size-fits-all approach. Mani Doraisamy brilliantly brought the necessary business shift, which is all inclusive, to bring Cloud Computing to the fore with an analogy recollecting Steve Jobs famous words, “We have to let go of this notion that for Apple to live, Microsoft has to die”.

Sudhakar S Marthi, Vice President Sales & Marketing – APAC, Zoho Corporation presented his session on “Cloud Computing for SMEs”. With 14% of SMBs already on cloud and another 10% expected by 2012, cloud is becoming more of a reality for SMBs. He also highlighted few interesting features in ZOHO where mail threads are converted to forum threads and wiki articles.

Pavan Yara, Consultant, Eucalyptus Systems talked about the unique features of Eucalyptus systems and its hypervisor Independence. The ensuing Panel discussion on Infrastructure, Deployment, Integration & Security Strategies focused on the unique challenges in deploying the cloud. Integration has to be upfront activity rather than an afterthought after installation. Mathan Kasilingam, Regional Manager, Systems Engineering, Symantec highlighted the initiatives taken at his firm to provide confidence about the security to the clients. The panelists agreed on the need for federated clouds to talk to each other.

In response to an audience question on security strategies in VoIP space, Bikram Barman, Senior Engineering Manager at RSA, Security Division, EMC talked of possibilities of extending private cloud to a public cloud in a secure way. Girish Dave, Head of Core Network Solutions presented interesting case studies in Cloud deployment, ranging from Pudong’s Health Cloud to China Mobile. He stated that deploying cloud required higher operational skill sets. He also highlighted at the different standards existing at telcos at UNI and subscriber levels. The final panel discussion on Sharing resources in the cloud value chain brought the legal perspective in the purview of the Cloud. Anu Vaidyanathan, CEO, PatNMarks urged the audience to look at Intellectual Property as a defense card rather than an offense card. She highlighted various examples where big companies have used patents as weapons against the competitors. Mani Doraisamy concluded the session eloquently showcasing the innovator’s dilemma in offering services that have never been offered and the incredible opportunity that lies in providing these services.

Innovation Driven and Development with Transformation-New Era for Pharmaceutical Industry

buy cheap generic viagra onlineaccutane from canada

Shanghai, China, 22 June 2011-The pharma’s industry resilience has always been based on innovation–in science and in business modes. The convergence of new trends such as health care reform and the adoption of health information technology promises to change the very business that drug companies are in, from selling drugs to delivering outcomes.

A recent IMS Health Report pegged the pharmaceutical’s market annual growth rate at 27% from 2006-2009 and projected that China will surpass France and Germany to become the third-largest drug market in the world by 2011 (behind only the US and Japan).

Beyond the market opportunity, China remains a highly attractive outsourcing destination in terms of cost efficiency and, increasingly, patient availability for clinical trials, expertise and infrastructure.

The InnoPharma China Congress 2011 organized by JFPS Group will gather more than 200 InnoPharma leaders and pioneers to bring the latest trends in the industry and will serve as a grand platform for face-to-face communication in tackling the drug discovery, clinical and regulatory issues in the industry.

The congress will be held on the 22nd until the 23rd of September, 2011 in Shanghai with plenary meetings and track sessions which include New Drug Research & Development, Preclinical & Clinical Development and Novel Therapeutics.

WORLD ENERGY COUNCIL AND SANEA TO PARTNER WITH AFRICA ENERGY INDABA 2012

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

The Annual Africa Energy Indaba Conference & Exhibition is delighted to announce that the World Energy Council (WEC) and the South African National Energy Association (SANEA) have adopted the event as their Africa Regional event.  This will result in the Africa Energy Indaba becoming the foremost forum and premier energy event on the African continent.

“The professional leadership provided by these two key organisations ensures that Africa Energy Indaba receives attention at the highest level both locally and internationally,” says organiser and MD, Liz Hart. “This is critical to ensure that the resolutions proceeding from the conference have a real impact on shaping energy policy, creating business opportunities and informing the debate around Africa’s energy future.”

The World Energy Council (WEC) is the foremost multi-energy organisation in the world, with a global network in more than 90 countries and over 3 000 member organisations including governments, industry and expert institutions, aimed at promoting the sustainable supply and use of energy for the benefit of all.

SANEA, the South African member committee of the WEC, represents a hub for the exchange of energy related information aimed at stimulating original thought and catalysing the transformation of the energy sector and, while rooted in sub-Saharan Africa, is well respected across the entire African continent.

“Africa Energy Indaba 2012 will once again incorporate the conference and exhibition, as well as the WEC African Regional Forum. As in previous years, the conference programme features a line-up of top local and international experts and speakers – including a keynote address by the Secretary-General of WEC – while the exhibition is expected to double in size after a triumphant showcase at this year’s event.”

The quality of presentations and calibre of speakers owes much to SANEA, as chair of the programme steering committee, in identifying relevant topics and the involvement of WEC in engaging expert speakers who represent the world’s foremost influencers in energy,” says Hart. “This ensures that the conference delivers great value for the delegates and enhances the networking opportunities presented by our business matchmaking programme.”

Africa holds significant energy resources and potentially has a high level of energy self-sufficiency for the region as a whole. However, these resources are not well developed to meet the growing needs of the continent,” says Dr Latsoucabé Fall, WEC regional manager for Africa.

Dr Fall adds that Africa Energy Indaba presents a unique opportunity to discuss how Africa’s energy challenges can best be met and to come up with viable solutions for policy-makers and decision-makers in government and industry to accelerate the realisation of a secure energy future for the continent.

SANEA chair, Brian Statham, says, “Africa Energy Indaba is an important event on the regional calendar and we are delighted to be involved, in line with our mandate to strengthen regional insight as part of WEC’s global insight processes.”

Demonstrating Drug Value Through Late-Phase Data Generation

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

buy cheap deltasone

Conference Dates: 13-14th September, 2011

Venue: Washington DC, USA

Phase IV clinical trials and observational studies are two of the fastest growing areas of drug development. Such post-marketing studies are becoming increasingly important as regulatory agencies demand more long-term data, which proves efficacy, safety and quality. Furthermore, a key driver for these types of studies are the demands of health technology assessors and payers and their need for evidence-based economic data, again over the long-term.

As phase IV and observational studies tend to be more commercial in nature, successfully planning and implementing them can be a major challenge, especially in terms of motivating investigators and recruiting patients who may already have access to the latest medications. Observational data whilst demonstrating actual patient and prescriber behavior also presents the additional challenge of the issue of bias and regulatory acceptance.

This event will provide the latest and most value-adding, real-life experiences in post-marketing studies, their benefits and challenges. It will be an ideal opportunity for benchmarking and networking with the experts and will bring the post-marketing community together to discuss solutions to the challenges in this vital area of research.

Why Attend?

  • Gain access to the latest methodologies and real-life case studies in the field.
  • Learn how to balance the complex requirements of key stakeholders: Marketing, clinical, regulatory, safety, KOLs and investigators.
  • Understand more about comparative studies and their value for drug evaluation.
  • Understand how late-phase studies are utilized to support corporate goals.
  • Get updated with the latest regulatory / ethical priorities and initiatives.
  • Benchmark best-practices in phase 4 protocol design and trial implementation.
  • Discover which types of technologies are most effective in real-life.
  • Find out how real-life data is being utilized to demonstrate product value.
