Growing Emphasis on the Importance of Due Diligence Reporting Drives the Market for Virtual Data Rooms, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – Virtual data rooms (VDR) as a new generation of online document storage and filing system is witnessing strong interest and adoption among enterprises. Defined as a virtual form of the traditional physical data rooms that serve as repositories of important and confidential company related data, VDRs replicate the same function over the Internet using computers. The tough and challenging economic climate which continues to remain the new normal in developed countries and the ensuing pressure on corporate bottom lines is driving significant interest in cost effective IT technologies and solutions. Cloud computing and cloud based technologies, over the last decade, have emerged to revolutionize the very structure of IT departments worldwide. A disruptive force in the making, virtual data room services represent the most efficient model of delivering file storage resources to companies. With almost all industries worldwide now being dependent on compute resources, virtual data rooms, which represent a cloud based resource, is forecast to witness strong growth. Adoption of VDRs will continue to benefit from the maturing cloud concept and the resulting increase in interoperability, data portability, and lower costs.

Disadvantages associated with traditional information storage and management strategies include risk of data loss and misplacement, high upfront capital costs in case of physical data rooms, time consuming filing process, lack of security, and limited efficiency benefits. All of these drawbacks are helping drive the migration to VDRs. Key benefits of VDR driving its adoption include automatic creation of backup of all uploaded files/data, superior security controls, efficient support for multiple users, easy and hassle free retrieval and viewing of files, cost effective storage of regulated information, compliance with regulatory norms, rapid anytime access to files, flexible pay per use billing, elasticity and ability to scale up datacenter resources as per requirement, among others. VDRs in addition also offer a superior alternate solution to generic file sharing (GFS) programs like Dropbox, and Google Drive, which although effective for consumer personal use, are often ill-suited for enterprise applications. Security glitches such as, violation of privacy norms like unauthorized sale or sharing of information with third parties, infrastructure limitations, limited reporting features, inability to track & trace user statistics and lack of strong backup options for files stored, remain key concerns with the use of GFS programs. Virtual data rooms in this regard offer a robust and secure platform for sensitive data storage and sharing.

Typically, use of VDR is dominated by corporate functions such as mergers & acquisitions (M&A), divestitures, liquidation, IPOs and bankruptcies. Future growth, however, will be led by increased adoption of VDR in facilitating newer corporate functions such as investor communications, fundraising, research & development, asset purchases, loan syndication, and supply chain secure document sharing, among others. While investment banks, manufacturing companies, and law firms represent dominant users of VDR, healthcare and pharmaceutical companies are emerging as a lucrative customer cluster, driven by increased drug development and licensing collaborations, patent filing activity and the growing need to protect IP property.

As stated by the new market research report on Virtual Data Rooms, the United States represents the largest regional market followed by Europe. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 20.7% over the analysis period.

Major players in the market include Ansarada pty Limited, AppFolio, Inc., Brainloop, EthosData, Firmex Inc., Global KAP Pty Ltd., iDeals™ Solutions Group S.A., Intralinks Holdings Inc., Merrill Data Site, RR Donnelley & Sons Company, ShareVault, TransPerfect Deal Interactive, and V-Rooms™ among others.

The research report titled “Virtual Data Rooms: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic industry activities. The report provides market estimates and projections in US dollars for all major geographic markets including the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Rest of World.

Study: Chronic Shingles Pain Can Hurt Sex Life; polyDNA Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR, the Only Natural Antiviral Tested according to FDA Guidelines


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) December 29, 2013

Shingles (herpes zoster) is a condition caused by the Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV), which can interfere with an individual’s ability to have and enjoy sex.

A study published in June 2013 in the journal Collegium Antropologicum found that the number one complaint of patients suffering from Shingles is lingering pain. After the initial symptoms (such as a rash of painful, fluid filled blisters) go away, many patients complain of lingering pain that lasts for years (1). This pain is called post-herpetic neuralgia. Any constant pain experienced by an individual can interfere with intimacy. Thus, a herpes zoster outbreak may cause post herpetic neuralgia (chronic pain), which may lead to sexual problems.

People concerned about reducing the chances of sex problems due to shingles need to understand the relationship between the two phases of the VZV, latent and active. For an easy to understand, in-depth explanation of this relationship, please visit: http://www.cbcd.net/What-is-a-cure.php

To summarize this page, when the immune system attempts to clear the active virus, the virus fights back by reactivating more latent viruses. The reactivation of these latent viruses prolongs the time it takes the symptoms to disappear. Therefore, any treatment that targets either the latent or active virus can help reduce symptoms.

“There are enough reasons for sexual problems without adding Shingles to the list. We therefore recommend Gene-Eden-VIR, the only natural antiviral product that was tested according to FDA guidelines for safety and efficacy.” - Mike Evans, polyDNA

In a post marketing clinical study published on August 12, 2013 in the peer reviewed medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs, researchers showed that Gene-Eden-VIR is safe and effective (2). Additionally, up to 70% of those studied reported a decrease in viral symptoms, and users experienced an increase in overall health (2).

Each ingredient of Gene-Eden-VIR was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals around the world to identify the safest, most effective natural ingredients that target the latent form of herpes zoster.

90% of Americans Reserve a Better Bottle of Wine to Celebrate According to [yellow tail] Reserve

White Plains, NY (PRWEB) April 15, 2010

Most adult Americans (90%) upgrade their wine selection when a premium moment calls, according to a new survey conducted by [yellow tail] Reserve. On the shelves this spring with new packaging, [yellow tail] Reserve, the premium offering from [yellow tail] wine, was created for consumers to take it up a notch and enjoy life's little special occasions.

What is the right occasion to trade-up for a better bottle? A date night at home with that special someone, a toast to TGIF, dinner with the in-laws, or an intimate gathering of close friends.

The survey also identified specific moments when a better bottle is uncorked. Three-quarters of Americans (74%) reserve a better bottle of wine for having friends over for dinner, while six-in-ten (59%) purchase a more premium wine to show gratitude, and half (50%) stow away special wine for a vacation.

"Many wine drinkers have chosen [yellow tail] wines for everyday occasions, but [yellow tail] Reserve gives them an option for when a special moment calls," said Francois Magnant, Senior Brand Manager for [yellow tail] Reserve at W.J. Deutsch. "These survey results show consumers upgrade their wine when the occasion warrants and a premium offering like [yellow tail] Reserve fits the bill."

When the time comes to purchase a better bottle of wine to celebrate, Americans don't break the bank, according the [yellow tail] Reserve survey. Price is the overwhelming factor in choosing a wine, with 47 percent citing it first, while cuisine (36%) and recommendations (30%), were second and third in the decision making process. Nearly half (43%) of wine drinkers will most often pay between $ 10.00 and $ 15.00 for a bottle of wine to celebrate a special occasion at home. Only 14% of Americans spend $ 20.00 or more for a better bottle. [yellow tail] Reserve's suggested retail price is $ 11.99.

"For price and quality, [yellow tail] Reserve offers wine drinkers a perfect accompaniment to enjoy a nice night at home or a special gathering," said Magnant. "The grapes in [yellow tail] Reserve originate from Australia's finest wine growing regions, offering a complex and expressive flavor that allows consumers to truly taste the difference."

Since its launch in 2003, [yellow tail] Reserve has garnered high levels of praise for its superior wine quality including, including a number of 'Best Value' nods from Wine Spectator* and 'Best Buy' credits from Wine Enthusiast**.

Total Blindness Turns into Stroke of Good Luck for Randyce Wechter, according to the “No Limits” Mentoring Mission.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

Randyce Wechter, the latest nominee of the No Limits Mentoring Mission Award a charitable outreach program dedicated to helping disabled people to achieve their career goals embodies the true spirit of somebody who has steadfastly refused to give up.

After being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at eight years old, her mother died suddenly. She found herself learning to walk again at LaRabida Childrens Hospital, without a mom and having to wear a cumbersome brace. To make matters worse, Randyce was warned by doctors that she could no longer play like a normal kid. Of course, she had other ideas.

So my father moved me down to Florida from Chicago to live with relatives, because of the warmer weather," she said. "He set up pool time at a local Miami Beach hotel because we were told that swimming would be instrumental in getting stronger and active again." The regimen worked. In fact, she ultimately became a standout student athlete in a number of high school sports, including volleyball, a sport she competed in at the prestigious Maccabiah Games in Israel.

At 21, Randyce married and went on to attend DePaul University. After a successful career in retail management, she settled into her passion: the theater. She eventually became a Unit Production Manager for a leading women's documentary film company. She had planned to continue in the same field when the couple moved to California, but fate intervened with the sunshine of her life a new baby boy named Matthew.

She relished being a stay-at-home mom, calling those years the best of her life. She also became actively involved in philanthropic work, helping organize multiple fundraisers for the schools her son attended.

By the time Matthew was in seventh grade, she decided it was time to go back to work. My husband, Michael, noticed that a local Palm Springs bakery was up for sale. It sounded like a lot of fun, even though Id never baked a thing in my life. Actually, my husband was the cook in the family, she laughs. Luckily, I felt I had enough organizational expertise and support from my family to make this unlikely venture a success.

Under her enthusiastic leadership and marketing skills, the business flourished. My husband, though very busy running his own computer business, helped out in any way that he could and so did my son. It was a blast! You can imagine how popular my son was with a parent known as PS Cookie Mama.

At 45, just as life couldnt get much better, something unimaginable occurred. I started losing my vision. I was diagnosed with overlapping autoimmune disease, which is a fancy way of saying they didnt know what was causing my optic nerve to begin dying in one eye.

Her son, a high school senior at the time, took over the day-to-day operations of the bakery as Randyce sought multiple medical opinions. He did a great job keeping the business going, but as my sight continued to deteriorate over the months ahead, it was obvious I would have to sell my business. It was a difficult decision after pouring so much work and love into my four bakeries, but since I was selling them to a former employee, who I also mentored in the business, it was an easier transition for me.

The family relocated to Laguna Niguel in Orange County, California, so she could receive regular chemotherapy treatments over a grueling four-year stretch at UCI Medical Center, in a desperate effort to stave off any other serious illnesses. Unfortunately, I lost my vision completely over a couple of months and the treatments continued in hopes of keeping the diseases from spreading to other vital organs.

About the same time, Randyce started writing a book called Blind Spot, which chronicled her life and journey into blindness, hundreds of doctors appointments, countless chemo treatments, wonderful doctors and the amazing support she received from her family. I was going to the Braille Institute and trying to do my best to adjust to life as a sightless person , but it was very difficult to grasp that this was really happening to me....I felt I had too much left to do and I wanted to survive the treatments. I felt like I would somehow see again.

The following is a passage from her unfinished book where she wishfully, almost prophetically, discusses her desires and hopes to one day see again.

I want to see it all again

I want to see smiles and milk mustaches

I want to see my sons blue eyes

I want to see my husbands long beautiful eyelashes and his one cute dimple.

I want to see the smile on my doctors face when I tell him I can see again.

And only because they all never gave up hope Ill never give up.

I will see it all again Randy

In 2004, Randyce suffered another physical setback in the form of a small stroke. As it turned out, it may have been a stroke of good fortune. To this day, doctors dont know how or why it happened, but after receiving a myriad of medications in conjunction with her stroke recovery, her vision miraculously began coming back in one eye about two months later.

It was like a dream, only real! she remembers. One day I woke up and saw through the glass doors I saw the dew on the grass I started seeing things I hadnt seen in five years, including my husband and son.

While she embraced her newfound vision, she never lost sight of the many friends and tremendous support she had received from the blind community. In fact it wasnt long before she and her husband of 38 years formed a company called AdaptiveVoice that develops, markets and trains people on groundbreaking computer adaptive programs for both the visually impaired and people with other disabilities.

The idea for AdaptiveVoice was born , a true labor of love, when my husband started writing and developed software programs for me while I was blind, so I could use the computer to stay connected and I loved it. Friends would drop by and see me (or hear me) using my computer and say, I want a copy, too. These dear friends would become our beta testers, and with their invaluable feedback, we started the company with (four applications. Today, we offer a suite of 19 applications for everything from web browsing, emails, document scanning, speech recognition you name it.

Randyce says the goal of AdaptiveVoice is to allow people with all types of disabilities to enjoy the same functionality from their computers as anybody else. We have fully downloadable programs called CDesk applications for people with computers, and we also offer complete software/hardware packages and the training to go with it. There are also wonderful online tutorials on our website.

According to Randyce, CDesk is an easy-to-use, high-contrast, large-print and fully speech-enabled desktop solution that puts the computer back at your fingertips. The company has partnered with The Chicago Lighthouse over the past two years, and is also closely associated with the Braille Institute, the Low Vision Council (SCCO) the Dayle McIntosh Center, the Center for the Partially Sighted (CPS) and veterans groups. CDesk is now in 26 states and over 100 low vision, blind and disabilities resource centers nationwide.

Despite the devastating impact of becoming totally blind and the grueling treatments that would follow, The experience opened my eyes and my heart to the challenges facing people with low vision and blindness and motivated me to forge a new career path of helping others find freedom through being able to use a computer to its fullest.

Randyce says that while going blind and suffering a stroke were major blows, shes grateful they have pointed her on a career path she never could have imagined in the bakery business. I couldnt have done any of this without my husband and son, who were like

Australian Motorcycle Fatalities Drop 10%, According to Report


Australia (PRWEB) November 08, 2012

Recently, the Bureau for Infrastructure, Transport, and Regional Economics (BITRE) released the results of its study on Australian road fatalities. The report was released on the first anniversary of the UNs Decade of Action for Road Safety. There are two sets of numbers pertaining to motorcycles, and they are very encouraging for motorcycle riders. The study gave raw data concerning fatalities, and also computed the number of deaths for each 10,000 motorcycles registered in Australia.

The raw numbers show that deaths declined 10% in 2011, and the 201 total number of deaths was the lowest in 7 years. In the twelve months from May 2011-April 2012, motorcycle deaths decreased by 10.4% from the previous twelve months 198 deaths were recorded.

When the numbers are computed per 10,000 registrations, the outlook is even better. In 2011, the rate was slightly under 2%, which was a decrease of 12.7% from the previous year. For comparison, motorcycle deaths averaged 5% of each 10,000 registrations from the years 2002-2006. The average decrease over the last ten years has been 6.7% per year.

According to Shaun Lennard, Chairman of the Australian Motorcycle Council, This number is still way too high. Every single road death represents a tragic set of circumstancesits a good sign to see the motorcycle toll- now below 200. Below 100 would be far betterRiding a motorcycle or scooter in Australia has never been safer.

Ben Crombie, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Revolution Bike Finance, takes a similar, slightly more aggressive stance than Lennard, but is happy to hear that motorcycle deaths continue to decline: This study is great news, but there is plenty of room for it to be even better. We have been on the record numerous times calling for riders to be more careful. We fully believe that these numbers can drop even more sharply in the coming years.

Crombie continued, The numbers dont lie; motorcycle fatalities could be reduced greatly if riders obeyed the speed limit, didnt combine riding with excessive alcohol or drugs, and always remembered to wear a helmet. The Queensland study a couple of years ago has a wealth of information on the subject."

The study to which Crombie referred, conducted by the Centre for Accident Research & Road Safety-Queensland (CARRS-Q), compiled information from all motorcycle crashes in the state from 2006-2010. In 7% of motorcycle fatalities, the rider wasnt wearing a helmet. In 39%, the rider was speeding. In 30%, the rider had consumed excess drugs, alcohol, or both.

Other causes cited by the study include lack of protective equipment, inability to see a motorcycle as well as a larger vehicle, inexperienced riders, instability of two wheels compared to four, braking difficulties, road surface, and risk-taking.

According to Crombie, most of these causal factors can be controlled by motorcycle riders: If riders would just remember to wear a helmet, obey the speed limit, and keep the alcohol consumption at an acceptable level, a lot less people would die on the roads. When you add in factors such as risk-taking, it becomes clear that most road deaths could be avoided by simply following the fundamentals of motorcycle safety.

Crombie concluded, We want to see everyone make it back alive every time, with no exceptions. This means knowing what risks are acceptable and what risks are unacceptable. We think as many as 90% of motorcycle fatalities could be prevented by riding safely.

Benefits of Easy Upgradeability of Telecom Base Station Technology Drives the Software Defined Radio Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) August 24, 2012

Follow us on LinkedIn Software Defined Radio (SDR) refers to a technology that is making significant waves in telecommunications and related industries. The technology is witnessing a rapid growth, as software-led radio communication systems are fast replacing the hardwired communication systems. The shift is being witnessed in several industries, with military, commercial and civilian industries at the forefront of this change. The basis for such a shift is fostered by the capabilities of the technology to render multi tasking through a radio system based on open-architecture software. This minimizes the use of multiple systems that was hitherto the case with existing technology, as SDR technology extends the systems utility to a broad array of applications employing diverse link-layer techniques and protocols.

The military was the first industry to have adopted SDR technology worldwide, where it is aimed at minimizing the number of radios used by combat forces to just one system, upholding the overall functionality. Today, SDR represents an advanced technology in military applications; consequently inciting militaries worldwide to adopt this technology. The US military became the first to adopt this technology and is increasingly being adopted by other militaries worldwide. Consequently, the potential of SDR technology in the military application market is expected to rapidly increase in the foreseeable future. Also, SDR is gaining importance in commercial markets. The communications sector is the epicenter of most activity related to SDR technology adoption. Increasingly cellular operators are realizing the importance of SDR technology in their operations and the potential this technology holds in transforming the functionality of existing infrastructure, all through the power of software. Consequently, demand for systems of the cutting edge technology is expected to rise remarkably during the following years. Future market growth hinges upon several factors including relative ease infused in components for engendering ease in retrofitting and adaptation of products in congruence to constantly developing air interface standards; improvements with respect to cost of developing products; time to market; and prospects in improving OEM margins.

A major factor driving the demand for SDR is the need for such an enabling technology that allows intercommunication between departments through radio. The need was particularly highlighted in the US in the aftermath of 9/11, when fire and police department personnel identified the need for the ability to communicate with each other, a facility not feasible for the radios in operation then. However, technology upgrade ensued and the problem was eliminated. Even before the 9/11 incident, the military identified such a problem with their legacy radio systems carried by various branches of armed services. The identification of the problem led to the use of Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS), which played a critical role in development of SDR, and in creation of SCA (Software Communication Architecture) Operating Environment standard. The latest zest in the area of SDR is emerging from the commercial market side, where wireless communications providers are showing significant interest as the technology allows remote base station and handset software upgrading as well as reconfiguration with new patches and features. In addition, the technology allows interoperability between various networks.

The present days changing economic and technological environment offers tremendous challenges to operators of communications. The SDR technology offers substantial flexibility as well as upgradeability to users by allowing simultaneous use of multiple standards through a single hardware device. Through the use of software RAN, the SDR technology helps operators to simultaneously support several standards on one hardware platform. This becomes particularly useful for operators with evolving industry landscape where the need for generating new revenue streams and holding on to a higher customer base becomes critical despite declining average revenues per user (ARPU). Software RAN enables upgradeability to next generations through mere software downloads, eliminating the need for equipment hardware, thereby addressing the major concern faced by most cellular service providers in the present context. For years, shared infrastructure has been offering benefits such as cost reduction; however, it has been fraught with certain issues that have reduced its appeal including dearth of independent upgrades, lack of competitive differentiation and requirement of cooperative management. Some or all of these issues are efficiently addressed by a virtualized base station through its virtualization technology, where a single hardware platform supports several independent base-station applications.

Cost remains a major concern for cellular operators, as these costs continue to remain higher than what many operators intend to infuse in base stations. The prohibitively higher costs of implementation make it particularly unsuitable for telecom companies, given the lack of cost-effective RF processing. RF equipment, particularly power amplifiers, is yet to reach the stage of commercialization, although base-band processing capabilities have significantly advanced. The higher costs act as a major hurdle for operators that are yet to formulate a LTE strategy and indecisive of the spectrum to be run on the LTE. Traditionally, hardware upgrades represented the most sought after option for operators intending to install new systems. This was achieved by depending upon a single vendor who took care of the entire hardware installation functions, although the mobile operators undertook the job of service and maintenance functions. However, this set up does not function well in case of SDR technology, as the entire reconfiguration is carried out by the vendor. Instead, the operator would be compelled to host a dedicated software engineer team for maintaining the SDR base stations.

As stated by the new market research report on Software Defined Radio, the US represents the largest regional market for the SDR technology worldwide. The radio communications space in the country is witnessing a substantial growth in research and development, given the drive of the defense establishments to address the need of its personnel with respect to next generation tactical radios. The defense sector is expected to witness a massive shift away from legacy hardware into SDR and cognitive radio (CR), enabled by the deployment of OTA (over-the-air)-system supporting radio systems, fuelling further growth in the market. The European market for SDR is also expected to growth at a substantial rate of 17.4% through the analysis period 2010-2018.
