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.

World Trade Center in Atlanta First to Stream Global Education in 50+ Languages Simultaneously Using Speech Translation Software by Translate Your World


(PRWEB) December 10, 2013

The World Trade Center in Atlanta streamed an unprecedented course on entrepreneurship that was delivered online in over 50 languages simultaneously using a software called Translate Your World. Tears streamed down the faces of professors and students in Haiti, because, for the first time, they understood the lectures. Rave "thank you" web chats poured in from Africa, Europe, and Asia, thanking the dynamic teachers from School For Startups for offering their course in dozens of languages. This World Trade Center Atlanta event was the first time in history that education streamed across the Internet in over 50 languages at the same time.

Today’s increased bandwidth combined with the latest speech translation technologies crush the language barrier and open education to a prospective 4 billion people who own a computer, irrespective of where they are located or what language they speak. The new cross-language speech translation software by Translate Your World translates what people say in real-time for a global audience as subtitles or as synthesized computer voice like Apple’s Siri for any conferencing software (e.g. WebEx, Skype, Blackboard) and for all devices. The low bandwidth required for speech translation made it possible for the World Trade Center in Atlanta to stream to regions heretofore unreachable.

As institutions race to prepare their classrooms for global Internet broadcast, spoken language has been the insurmountable barrier. Understanding the spoken word affects not only class lecturers, but also educational recruiters and marketers. New speech translation software does for spoken voices what "Google Translate" does for text; they translate what people say in a way that the listener understands. For education, this means translating a teacher’s lectures from the podium into another language; giving recruiters new cross-language software to speak with prospective students; and offering avenues for promotional presentations in other languages.

Importantly, voice translation technologies reduce the cost of class translation by up to 95%, and quickly morph a classroom from local to global in a matter of days. Traditional lecture translation can easily cost $ 20,000 per 10-week course per language, and take months to prepare. Today’s voice translation products translate the professor’s voice directly as the professor speaks in real-time, then provide online interfaces for follow-up translation improvement, reducing the cost to $ 1,000 per 10-week course per language.

Companies in this arena:

Speech translation:

Several speech translation solutions for cross-language speaking were introduced in 2013 by Translate Your World. The solutions unite strong and tested software by Microsoft, Dragon, Google, and others into cross-language applications for educational and business use. The software makes real-time "live" voice translation, presentations, and cross-language conversations both feasible and inexpensive. Options include subtitles and computerized voice, plus capability to save in a database with an interface to improve and combine with video.

Classrooms on mobile:

Institutions also find the need to move their classrooms to mobile devices. Particularly for students abroad, mobile and tablet may be the only reliable Internet access available. IntelaText displays voice translation as real-time subtitles on mobile, and also provides mobile applications for teachers to converse with students and parents across language barriers.

Mobile tutoring:

Mobile Tutor is a cross-language talking and texting application that provides personal support for student-teacher-tutor relationships throughout the educational cycle. Each participant speaks or texts in their preferred language, translated for the recipient.

International recruiting:

For recruiting technologies, Streaming Translation uses voice translation software to offer online presentations across languages, webinar subtitles, and speech translation for Skype, WebEx, and similar.

The World Trade Center in Atlanta was the first organization in history to offer a college level course in 50 languages at the same time using speech translation software. Hopefully the first of many, because now all of the major speech technologies have reached a level of development that enable them to be used together in harmony for worldwide education at dramatically lower cost.

Global Solid State Transformer Market – Smart Industry Size, Market Share, Smart Trends, Analysis, and Forecast, 2012 – 2018


Albany, New York (PRWEB) September 22, 2013

The solid state transformer (SST) market is in its nascent stage but is expected to grow exponentially due to its numerous advantages. An SST consists of semi-conductor based components and diodes which are capable of handling high power and fast switching of current. The SSTs have in-built hardware which allows them to communicate with the operator and consumer. The reduced size provides for higher efficiency along with better automation and control.

The SST market is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 81% from 2012 to 2018. The solid state transformer market can be classified based on the product type, components, application and geography. Based on the product type, the transformer market is widely classified into conventional transformer market and the solid state transformer market. The SST market is further classified based on the various products included in the market such as converters, switches, high frequency transformers, and many others.

Browse Report With Request TOC: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/solid-State-transformer.html.

SSTs are segregated based on applications into traction locomotives, power (distribution) grid, electrical vehicle charging station and others. Geographically, the SST market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World.

This market is expected to see a very high growth rate which can be attributed to the advantage SSTs have over conventional transformers. An SST is very compact, and the size to weight ratio compared to a conventional transformer is 1:100, which facilitates operations at a high frequency with higher efficiency. It is highly flexible and causes fewer power losses while increasing or decreasing the current. This saves power losses which is a major requirement for grids. This feature has been a key driving force for the SST market.

The only restraints for the SST market are its high cost and the lack of a testing facility for the prototypes. Electrical components cannot be used without being tested and currently there are not enough testing facilities.

SSTs have found their applications in a large number of devices. These devices provide for the growth of the market. Increased power transmission and distribution due to the infrastructural growth in many countries, coupled with the dwindling quantity of power generation warrants a transformer that can work under high load and minimize power losses.

Global and China Memory Industry Report, 2013

London (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

Global and China Memory Industry Report, 2013 consists of the following contents:

Brief introduction to global semiconductor industry

Market analysis of DRAM and NAND

Major memory vendors

Major memory packaging and test vendors

No digital electronics can do without memory. Memory can be basically classified into RAM and FLASH. The former is Processor Unit, offering Cache and falling into Commodity DRAM, Mobile DRAM and Embedded RAM.

FLASH consists of NOR and NAND, used for storage of Data or Code. Presently, NOR is mostly applied to Embedded field, and seldom used independently.

Memory industry is highly concentrated. In NAND field, five vendors dominate the whole global market. From perspective of sales by brand, in 2013Q1, SAMSUNG occupied 37.1% market share, Toshiba 28.9%, Micron 13.7%, SK Hynix 12.7% and Intel 8.6%. Seen from revenue by company, in 2012, global NAND vendors achieved revenue of USD28,995 million, of which, SAMSUNG held 36.8%, Toshiba and Sandisk (joint venture in NAND field) 35.0% and Micron (IMTF) 17.8%.

Mobile DRAM mainly includes LPDDR2 and LPDDR3. In terms of sales by brand, in 2013Q1, top three companies were SAMSUNG, Elpida (Micron) and SK Hynix, respectively accounting for 55.8%, 18.5% and 21.7% of the market size, totally 96%.

When it comes to Commodity DRAM, top four players together shared 91% of the market.

Since memory industry entered the stable phase in 2012, market competition has been eased considerably. Yet technical barriers and capital requirement have significantly risen. So there is no possibility of new player’s appearing. Investment in capacity expansion has been reduced to a large extent. Balance of supply and demand is achieved and there even occurs short supply during peak season. Profit of memory companies embarks on a steep rising trend. Memory industry will get rid of the stage of fierce competition and consistent deficit, and usher in a new period for rich and stable profit.

2Gb DDR3 DRAM was priced only USD0.83 in Dec. 2012, but USD1.5 at the end of Apr. 2013, a jump of 80%. The price reached even up to USD1.96 in May, but dropped slightly in July, the slack season, yet still remained around USD1.8. 2Gb DDR3 DRAM is primarily used for PC. In 2013Q1, global PC demand fell by 14%, and PC DRAM output was down 25%. Monthly PC DRAM Wafer Capacity got just 270,000. That is to say, although PC DRAM price got increased, output didn’t stop declining.

The short supply of PC DRAM was led by two reasons.

First, the jump in smart phone and tablet PC shipment caused the sharp increase of demand for Mobile DRAM. To deal with that, a large amount of capacity, previously targeting at PC DRAM, was shifted to Mobile DRAM, especially that of SAMSUNG. It would take at least half a year for producers to shift capacity back if they want to. But obviously they don’t, for the prospect of Mobile DRAM is widely regarded much brighter than that of PC DRAM.

In addition, second-tier Taiwan-based vendors have dropped out of DRAM field because of years of loss. For instance, Powerchip Technology even sold the plant. Companies are so pessimistic about PC DRAM that even through the profit would double, there won’t be many vendors switch to it. Mobile DRAM is extremely tempting, the prospect is highly rated and the present profit is generous as well.

In 2014, in the wake of upgrading of the processor, memory system of smart phones and tablet PCs will be further upgraded. By then, 2Gb LPDDR3 will be mainstream product. Bedsides, in addition to smart phones and tablet PCs, Ultrabook also will be the huge market of Mobile DRAM. For example, the latest Macbook Air of Apple has already abandoned traditional PC DRAM, and turn to lower-power-consumption Mobile DRAM.

As for NAND, since hit bottom in the middle of 2012, the price has started rebounding, yet at rate of only 40-50%, far slower than DRAM. Market driving force of NAND cover smart phones, tablet PCs, Ultrabooks and SSDs. But smart phone has lost its strong growth impetus, with growth rate getting lower and lower. The same is true for tablet PCs. Because of high price, Ultrabook also progresses slowly. Despite that SSD is developing vigorously, it is not strong enough to shore up the entire NAND market. NAND began dropping in price after May.

In memory module field, Kingston assumes the top role, exerting much pressure on its opponents. In the short supply period, without die, small plants won’t be able to operate. As a result, independent memory module plants become increasingly few. The largest Chinese player Ramaxel is an affiliated company of Lenovo; Crucial was acquired by Micron lately, so did Smart Modular Storage and PQI, taken over by Sandisk and Foxlink, respectively. For memory module vendors, the key assets are retail outlets. But e-commerce is emerging, traditional retail outlets cost too much in operation, which generates big pressure on memory plants, and put them to be confronted with two choices, namely, transforming to electronics distribution or turning to DRAM Die plants.

In regard to packaging and test, SAMSUNG and SK Hynix do it mostly by themselves, and outsource a small part to STS and HANA, while Japanese and American companies outsource the majority of the work. Taiwan-based PTI, the top memory packaging and test provider, and Walton Advanced Engineering serve as the OEM of Elpida’s Mobile DRAM and standard model DRAM production lines. Elpida conducts the advanced packaging, like Multi Chip Package (MCP) and Package on Package (PoP), in Japan by itself.

With regard to back-end packaging and test of Micron, there is huge difference between it and that of PTI. And its DRAM products are mainly packaged in ChipMOS, and tested in its Xi’an Testing Plant in Chinese Mainland. Packaging and test of NAND Flash is conducted by ChipMOS, iNETest and PTI.

Large NAND Flash vendor Toshiba has its memory products packaging and test done by PTI and Amkor.
