French-Thai Cyber Forum

Viparda Sombatwachara - 16-mars-2016 10:40:52

On the 1 st of April 2016, Business France and the French Embassy to Thailand will organize a special business forum dedicated to cyber-security. The morning session will be dedicated to conferences delivered by both Thai and French experts while the afternoon session will consist in workshops and B2B meetings between Thai and French potential business partners. Our Trade Commission recently received significant marks of interest regarding the Thai cyber market and has already started to mobilize major French players from the cyber ecosystem (experts, clusters, companies and officials) to bring them to Bangkok on the 1 st of April. Thailand is a promising cyber market currently facing severe threats (political hacking, financial cyber-criminality, etc.). We believe French firms offer powerful and trustworthy solutions that could efficiently support the development of Thailand’s cyber-security capacities as well as e-business infrastructures.

French-based company UNOWHY has launched the English version of QOOQ, the first tablet computer that is made for the kitchen. The tablet is preloaded with 1,000 international multimedia recipes, ingredient fact sheets and useful meal-planning tools to help gastronomy lovers in the kitchen. “We saw an opportunity to merge technology and content to create a richer and more tactile form of recipe preparation. The QOOQ tablet offers users interaction with top chefs and allows them to learn every nuance of their favourite dish, helping them improve their own talents, making life simpler in the kitchen”, explains Jean-Yves Hepp, inventor of QOOQ, President and Founder of UNOWHY.  By combining interactive technology with exclusive culinary content, QOOQ, the first touchscreen tablet to be made for the kitchen, has now been launched in English by French-based company UNOWHY. The tablet, which serves as a cookery coach, enables users at any level to learn directly from some of Europe’s leading chefs including Michelin-starred chef Emmanuel Renaut of Le Flocon de Sel restaurant in Megève (south-eastern of France). Each QOOQ comes preloaded with 1,000 international recipes that can be accessed by cuisine type, difficulty level, preparation time and ingredients, helping to customise the cooking experience to suit the chef and his or her kitchen. At the touch of a button, users are also able to purchase additional recipes, which are available individually or in themed packs and are focused on such topics as a destination, an ingredient or a specific chef. There is a catalogue of over 4,000 exclusive multimedia recipes made for QOOQ by more than 100 chefs. QOOQ presents the recipes in a step-by-step interactive guide to create a variety of dishes through real-time high definition video, photos and text. The chefs explain in detail every step in the recipe preparation, guiding users through the preparation, from choosing ingredients to the inal presentation.     Video speed is controlled by the user, and videos can be paused while the user accesses separate tutorials that explain specific culinary techniques. There is also behind-the-scene footage of the chefs’ restaurants, as well as hundreds of ingredient fact sheets that detail how individual products should be chosen, kept and cooked. For the health-conscious, recipe pages detail the calories contained in a dish and the Meal Planner function allows users to monitor and vary their diets. “No matter the dietary requirements or preferences, restrictions or time constraints,   QOOQ is the multimedia culinary coach that can guide anyone, regardless of previous cooking experience”, says Jean-Yves Hepp. Users are able to build a culinary profile which contains a variety of information, such as allergy details. Based on the culinary profile, the QOOQ tablet suggests recipes to suit individual tastes and needs.

The growing market for cloud computing in France

Ratchaneekorn Mekchai - 10-févr.-2012 12:51:10

31 January 2012 – The boom in data transmission and storage capacity has given rise to cloud computing, where calculations and data are scattered in a universe that is no longer directly accessible to customers, who instead buy processing activities in the same way that one might buy electricity. Three levels of offerings are available: Externally hosted IT infrastructure (IaaS = Infrastructure as a Service); Ready-to-use environments (PaaS = Platform as a Service); and Standardized shared applications sold as services (SaaS = Software as a Service). Revenue from the global market for cloud computing services totaled US$68.3 billion in 2010, while in Europe, the cloud computing market surged 20% and may account for almost 15% of the European software and services market by 2015. The French market was worth €1.85 billion in 2010, of which €672 million were generated by SMEs, and continues to grow strongly. It is set to exceed €2 billion in 2011 and may account for more than 6% of the French software and services market by 2012 (estimate by Nexima).   Alongside international operators such as Microsoft, Google, HP, AT&T and IBM, France is home to numerous companies, including ATOS, Cap Gemini, Steria, Orange and SFR. ATOS has recently established Yunano , a joint venture with Chinese company Ufida, to market cloud-based management software and associated services. French software publisher Systancia , with bases in the Alsace and Ile-de-France regions, is a market leader in Europe for application/workstation user environment virtualization.   France provides new entrants with a growth-friendly environment. French legislation affords a high level of protection for data and data processing; in particular, regulations governing encryption (Act 2004-575 of June 21, 2004 and Decree 2007-663 of May 2, 2007) cover concerns relating to the sensitivity of data entrusted to cloud computing centers. New entrants include US company Joyent , established in Ile-de-France (Paris region) in 2010, which provides IaaS to LinkedIn, Disney, CNN, Facebook, Yahoo and vente-privee.com, and open-source PaaS to publishers, hosting companies and specialist computer services companies such as Dell and First Service. This pioneering cloud computing start-up is now competing with cloud-based offerings from companies such as Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azur. In 2010, Dell entered into an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) agreement with Joyent to use its “smart technologies” to offer “turnkey” clouds hosted on its servers.   France has eight innovation clusters involved in cloud computing: Cap Digital and System@tic (Ile-de-France), Elopsys (Limousin), Images et réseaux (Brittany/Pays de la Loire), Imaginove and Minalogic (Rhône-Alpes), Secure Communication Solutions (Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur) and the e-secure transaction cluster TES (Basse-Normandie).   In 2011, the French Government issued an initial call for projects dedicated to cloud computing R&D as part of its “National Investment Program” . Five projects will receive state aid (€19 million): a software engineering platform ( CloudForce project , Orange Labs), an application porting scheme ( CloudPort project , Prologue, an SME), a high-performance software infrastructure ( Magellan project , Bull), a community cloud ( Nu@age project , Non Stop Systems, an SME), and a higher education establishment cloud ( UnivCloud project , INEO). The French Federation of Software Publishers ( Association Française des Editeurs de Logiciels – AFDEL) has set up a website ( www.investirdanslenumerique.fr ) to simply the procedure for project owners when submitting project for “National Investment Program” funding.   According to David Appia, Chairman & CEO of the Invest in France Agency,   “France is a growth market for high-tech and innovative companies, particularly in the cloud computing sector, where the leading players are already here doing business. The French government’s “National Investment Program” is providing a boost to a dynamic network of partnerships created by France’s innovation clusters through its funding offers for projects involving IT system designers, telecoms operators, software publishers, technology integrators, research laboratories and innovative SMEs.”   The Invest in France Agency (IFA) is the national agency responsible for promoting and facilitating international investment in France. It also coordinates initiatives to promote France’s economic attractiveness. The IFA network operates worldwide. In France, the IFA works in partnership with regional development agencies to offer international investors outstanding business opportunities and customized services.

Growth and innovation in the French smart card and identification industry

Ratchaneekorn Mekchai - 10-févr.-2012 12:26:15

  Contactless identification and transaction technologies (NFC, for “Near Field Communication”) have experienced rapid development in a global market that enjoyed accelerated growth in 2010 which has continued into 2011. According to Eurosmart, global use of “smart secure devices” in 2011 amounted to almost 6.1 million units (contactless smart cards), used in telecommunications (microprocessor cards – 4.6 million), financial and payment services (one million) and passports, identity and healthcare cards (e-government and e-healthcare – 0.22 million), with the remainder split between a variety of applications, notably in transport (tickets, tolls, etc.) and pay TV.   French companies with recognized expertise in the sector include Inside Contactless in Aix‑en‑Provence (Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur region), a member of the TES (Secure Electronic Transactions) innovation cluster in Caen (Basse-Normandie region), which has acquired ATMEL’s SMS (Secure Microcontroller Solutions) division; Gemalto in Sophia Antipolis (Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur) ; and TAZ-TAG in Rennes (Brittany), which has entered into a partnership agreement with Toronto-based Canadian company Quand Medical , which specializes in medical information.   Foreign investors have been quick to seize opportunities in the French market, making use where possible of tax incentives supporting research and development (e.g. France’s research tax credit). For example, Japanese company SATO provides RFID solutions from its Lille site (Nord-Pas de Calais); U.S. coding and identification company Markem-Imaje has established a site in Bourg-lès-Valence, close to the SCS (Secure Communication Solutions) innovation cluster at Valbonne-Sophia Antipolis (Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur); German company Deister Electronics is a leading player in RFID solutions in the Île-de-France (Paris) region; while Maroc Traitement de Transactions (M2T) has also established an Île-de-France site, aided by the IFA and the Paris Region Economic Development Agency. Innovation clusters Novalog in St-Étienne-du-Rouvray (Haute-Normandie) and Systematic Paris Region, which both specialize in traceability, are home to many foreign companies.   The “ 2011 Cards and Identification ” show, due to be held in Paris from November 15-17, 2011, will focus on the contactless card and payment industry, the “object internet” and M2M, as well as the development of identification technologies. In this latter field, Bluelinea is preparing for the 2011 launch of an electronic bracelet to monitor Alzheimer’s patients in their homes. More generally, the ability to monitor any item, cargo, vehicle, animal or person requiring special surveillance will call for detection infrastructure to be installed at mandatory transit points. Furthermore, ethical considerations arising from monitoring and identifying people and goods will need to be considered. Other applications could quickly become widespread: till procedures (bar code scanners), toll points (RFID scanners) and ticketing (for metro systems, shows and performances, vehicle parking and day-to-day transactions).   In October 2011, the NFC Forum , a consortium of manufacturers responsible for defining NFC standards, updated the so-called SNEP (Simple NDEF Exchange Protocol) specifications for peer-to-peer sharing. This protocol enables two NFC-equipped phones to exchange data simply by touching the handsets together. This function can be put to a wide variety of uses: exchanging business cards, gathering special offers for use at a later time, contacting and following other people on social networks, and exchanging small amounts of money or travel tickets.   In May 2011, the French government issued a €20 million call for projects (“Rolling out NFC contactless mobile services”). Funding will be awarded to 20 to 30 contactless mobile telephony projects to be rolled out in several major French cities offering information and payment transactions.   The Invest in France Agency (IFA) is the national agency responsible for promoting and facilitating international investment in France. It also coordinates initiatives to promote France’s economic attractiveness. The IFA network operates worldwide. In France, the IFA works in partnership with regional development agencies to offer international investors outstanding business opportunities and customized services.

How smart and contactless technologies are changing everyone’s lives

Ratchaneekorn Mekchai - 25-févr.-2011 12:07:23

Hong Kong, 16 February 2011. Imagine a world where there are no fake goods, no one needs to carry a wallet or where cars make meals. In just afew years, smart and contactless technologies such as NFC, RFID and the ‘Internet of Things’ could make this possible.    Wallets may become a thing of the past. According to a recent (February) report sponsored by Mastercard, mobile and contactless payments will experience immense global market growth over the next five years, reaching US$680 billion and US$320 billion, respectively.In Beijing,China Unicom launched its SIMpass in January, giving the public contactless mobile payment on thousands of buses, taxis and in businesses, including the car parks, supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacies, cinemas, public telephones. SIMpass has more than two million users in more than 20 cities and provinces of China, including Beijing, Hunan and Jiangsu. In the future, fake goods may become obsolete. All products including pharmaceuticals could be tagged with RFID (radio frequency identity) chips to prevent fakes. For example garment manufacturers such as Gerry Weber already implant chips into their care labels to stop copying. In just a few years, these RFID chips will be so small that they may be used to tag all manner of products to prove authenticity.    Machines will talk to each other to make peoples’ lives easier. When people arrive home by car, the car could potentially switch on the air conditioning unit, the air conditioner could switch on the TV and microwave and so on. According to Analysys Mason, the consumer ‘Internet of Things’ will grow to almost 16 billion connectable devices worldwide by 2020. Innovations such as these and many more will be showcased and discussed at CARTES in Asia exhibition and conference on 29 – 31 March 2011 at AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong. Over 170 exhibitors and more than 4,000 trade visitors are expected.   On Tuesday 29 March, 2011, the first day of CARTES in Asia, The Asian Sesames Awards will announce the most innovative smart technology application in Asia Pacific. Jury members include Frank Xu, chairman of the Smart Card Forum of China and Greg Pote, chairman of the Asia Pacific Smart Card Association. Last year’s winning product was Watchdata’s DBS Live Fresh 3-in-1 credit card that combined banking, transport and retail payments on a single chip dual interface smart card and used in Singapore.    Professionals from the fields of banking, security, IT, electronics, retail, telecoms, logistics and government who are responsible for innovation cannot afford to miss this trade show and conference.  Sources: BBC News, NFC News, Analysys Mason These topics will be covered in the following conferences: Mobile payments & financial services ( Wednesday 30 March – 10am-12.30pm)   Asian consumers as the largest mobile users are increasingly using their mobiles to pay.
