Esri President and Founder, Jack Dangermond, described the agreement as both a recognition of successful implementations and a shared belief that location intelligence in cloud infrastructure was pivotal to addressing customers’ needs and solving real-world problems – especially those that need scalable computing, storage, and networking capabilities.

“We’ve seen our users achieve amazing results already with Esri technology in Alibaba Cloud,” said Dangermond. “This has been possible as both organizations have engineered interoperable and compatible technology, based on industry standards. The agreement will now bring our engineers together to collaborate on shared initiatives that deliver the next wave of location intelligence innovation on the cloud.”

Esri’s sole authorized distributor in Mainland China, Esri China, has a proven track record in helping customers implement Esri technology on Alibaba Cloud. The Ningxia Land and Resources Bureau has built their own foundational geospatial data platform using Esri’s ArcGIS Enterprise technology on Alibaba Cloud. The customer has consolidated their electronic map data, imagery, survey, and 3-dimensional data into a “one stop” catalogue used by all functions and levels of the Ningxia Autonomous Region government.

Esri China’s President, Frances Ho, has witnessed the rapid migration of location intelligence capabilities to cloud infrastructure, and believes that this will continue. “Organizations are rapidly adopting geographic information systems (GIS) and combining it with the capabilities of cloud technology,” said Ho. “Our users already rely on ArcGIS Enterprise and Alibaba Cloud to do this reliably and efficiently, using world-class innovation from our GIS experts in China, the United States, and around the world.”

NEC Iris Recognition Technology Ranks First in NIST Accuracy Testing27.4.2018 05:00Tiedote

NEC Corporation (NEC) (TOKYO: 6701) today announced that its iris recognition technology achieved the highest matching accuracy evaluation in the recent Iris Exchange (IREX,*1) IX evaluations of automated iris recognition algorithms performed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Iris recognition technology is a biometrics identifier that uses patterns from the iris, the donut-like tissue that surrounds the pupil. In recent years, this technology has been adopted by systems that require large-scale matching, mainly for organizations and companies, since it is possible to quickly provide highly accurate authentication with devices that do not require physical contact. From the standpoint of privacy protection and security enhancement, government agencies in particular are in growing need of reliable personal authentication for purposes that include citizen ID, immigration control and criminal investigations. NEC received the top accuracy ranking in the IREX

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia26.4.2018 22:49Tiedote

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) today sent a new letter and a presentation to Telecom Italia (“TIM” or the “Company”) shareholders calling upon shareholders to uphold best practice governance principles at TIM’s upcoming shareholder meeting on May 4th. Inadequate governance and poor stewardship have imposed a heavy cost on TIM’s stakeholders for too long. Vivendi’s repeated missteps and self-serving behaviour have eroded the value of TIM’s shares and destroyed shareholder trust. The question being put to TIM shareholders on May 4th is: can you entrust your investment to Vivendi as long-term stewards of your capital and this company moving forward? Shareholders should take the opportunity to correct a governance structure rife with conflict and demand high quality and independent stewardship at the Board level. Shareholders have the opportunity to remove an otherwise permanent, persisting and pervasive impairment of value. This pivotal vote offers a textbook opportunity to put
