Atos moves Edith Cowan University to the Cloud and takes operational responsiveness, engagement and cost efficiency to new heights

SINGAPORE, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Atos, an international leader in Digital Services, was appointed by Edith Cowan University to migrate the University’s entire central IT infrastructure to the cloud and transform it into a more agile, scalable and on-demand infrastructure.

In addition, Atos will ensure new levels of operational flexibility, transparency and cost efficiency that will allow Edith Cowan University to optimise their resources. 

“The advancements in technology and our students’ expectations for a modern, fast and high-performance IT infrastructure to enable their consumption of knowledge are the critical reasons for this shift, in addition to the rising cost of maintaining and upgrading an on-premise data centre,” said Professor Omari, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Edith Cowan University. He added, “While we reviewed the changing landscape of our organization against future expansionary plans, the need for an advanced IT infrastructure and data centre, moving to the cloud became inevitable and we found Atos with its international coverage and expertise to be the right fit.”

“This landmark partnership with Edith Cowan University will not only help to entrench Atos’ position in the Australian market as the go-to provider of cloud and IT services, but also affirms our commitment to Australia,” said Herbie Leung, CEO of Atos in Asia Pacific. “Like businesses globally, universities are also under tremendous pressure to reduce cost, enhance processes and improve services. Atos is well positioned to play a vital role in supporting organizations in Australia to achieve their greatest potential for service, operations and cost savings with our global insights and relevant skills”.

BTCGaw is now buying Bitcoins with 11% more than Blockchain official rate

MILFORD, Delaware, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — BTCGaw INC. (http://www.btcgaw.com) has announced yesterday its latest offer for Bitcoin sellers: a conversion rate with an 11% increase compared to Blockchain’s official rate. The company conducts its marketing campaign with a lot of confidence that their deal for Bitcoin trade is the best on the market at the moment.

The Delaware-based company was founded in July 2014 by former banking professional Tony Gaw, who has seen the business opportunity in the emerging markets of cryptocurrency in general and Bitcoin in particular. The investment he has made so far in Bitcoin exceeds USD 1.6 Mil.

The company’s strategy is pooling large amounts of Bitcoin, while putting together an online exchange office focused on corporate business. BTCGaw has closed two deals already becoming the exclusive exchange house for two large online vendors who will start accepting Bitcoin payments in the near future and another deal still under negotiation for signing with a major online Casino, which has also opened his policy for Bitcoin acceptance.

The uncertainty revolving around the cryptocurrency environment, together with the volatility of the digital currencies have not discouraged the young entrepreneur who put his money, time and financial know-how into developing a business which is viewed as adventurous at most by many of the traditional investors.

“It will eventually go mainstream within the financial system and we’re not very far from that point, it’s only a matter of few years,” declared Gaw. While dealing with uncertainty risk at the core of its business, Gaw has approached it as opportunity risk and built a strategy and a team of professionals around his idea of the business of the future.

In this pursuit BTCGaw has put an highly competitive offer on the table of Bitcoin sellers, who want to benefit from the company’s latest offer and who are willing to sell their Bitcoin for what the company claims to be “the best deal available on the market.”

All the details related to the company’s offer and other information, together with the contact details of the Sales Team are available on their website: http://www.btcgaw.com

SAN FRANCISCO, BERLIN and BEIJING, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — glispa, a high performance digital marketing pioneer, announces the fourth generation of their Quality Optimization Engine (QOE). QOE is a business intelligence tool that delivers mobile advertisers quality traffic and turns big data into valuable, actionable metrics.

To learn more or to get started working with glispa, visit: http://www.glispa.com/solutions.html?

Mobile advertisers today are left to sift through too much incomplete data, resulting in time lost on ineffective ad placements and low returns on high costs. glispa’s QOE identifies a number of real-time quality triggers that advertisers can leverage to optimize and streamline campaigns quickly. It also allows real-time insight into glispa-generated users, which can be proactively monitored to see how users are engaging (e.g. how deep they may be going into the application) and monetizing.

QOE’s reporting function removes the guesswork and streamlines these crucial insights, giving brands the tools to fully track and monitor every aspect of their campaigns and showing key performance indicators (KPIs), while ensuring confidence and control. It measures performance by days, times and ad placements so that glispa’s dedicated optimization team can make proactive, real-time adjustments for maximum value on the advertising spend.

“We can actually guarantee quality traffic and more engaged end users for our global advertising clients,” said Gary Lin, CEO at glispa. “gumi Inc. and OLX are excellent examples of how we use business intelligence to deliver actionable learning to our advertisers through proactive data analysis and real-time optimization. The Quality Optimization Engine is our behind-the-scenes technology that is a major ingredient in our secret sauce.”

“With glispa, we’ve quickly seen delivery of quality players on Brave Frontier to enable gumi Inc. quicker access to difficult markets, like the U.S. and Canada, because of how they support gumi Inc. with proactive optimizations and strong client service support,” said Masaru “Nogi” Ohnogi, SVP of gumi Inc., and Head of San Francisco Office, gumi America, Inc.

“With the Optimization Engine, we’ve been able to acquire new, quality users and really maximize our mobile advertising spend,” said Federico Vazquez, Mobile Marketing Director at OLX. “Through glispa’s Quality Optimization Engine, we are able to see in real-time the actions that quality users take. And not only are we spared from drowning in useless data, but we can also modify campaigns immediately to drive high-quality traffic.”

Advertisers need a way to ensure that everyone is working toward the same KPIs, with the same data. glispa’s QOE ensures that client KPIs and benchmarks for campaigns are all aligned, creating a more streamlined process.

glispa is able to assure quality traffic through proprietary technology that scans every incoming data point to detect indicators of suspicious activity and noncompliance in order to prequalify all traffic sources and placements. This ensures that clients only spend advertising budgets on desired clicks and leads and improves overall ad spend efficiency.

Grow Your Small Business with Offline Marketing Techniques

NEW YORK, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Even while living in a digital age, small business marketers understand that traditional marketing strategies are unique and have distinct value with helping to grow their small business. While it’s important not to discount the power of online marketing, many proven offline methods are simply forgotten when marketing campaigns are planned.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110831/NY59180LOGO

In her debut article for PR Newswire’s Small Business PR Toolkit, Claire Prendergast, Senior Strategic Communications Manager at agencyEA, explores different types of traditional offline marketing techniques that can benefit your business.

  • Guerilla marketing. Thinking outside of the box may lead to unconventional techniques that often translate into “unforgettable.”  Posting sticky notes at popular locations such as drive-thrus may be one guerilla marketing tactic that leaves a lasting impression.
  • Give stuff away. Including small branded items with each customer order is an excellent way to incentivize your customer-base. That extra thoughtful step may be just what is needed to get them coming back for more.
  • Public speaking. While this tactic may not be for everyone, it’s often a very useful way to bring new customers to your business and help grow your brand. Find a local event that is related to your industry, come up with an educational topic you can speak on, and volunteer your time. Attending events can be just as beneficial as speaking at them.

Viettel Strengthens Global Portfolio with Acquisition of Beeline Cambodia as Part of Its Global Expansion Plans

First Vietnamese company to acquire an active telecom operator overseas, part of Viettel’s global expansion strategy.

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia, April 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Viettel (Cambodia) Pte. Ltd. (Metfone) announced that it has reached an agreement for the purchase of Sotelco Ltd. (Beeline Cambodia) assets and telecom licenses including but not limited to its 2G, 3G and 4G frequency licenses. This milestone deal, the first time a Vietnamese company has acquired an active telecom operator overseas, is part of the global expansion strategy that the company is embarking on.

“Our investment in Beeline Cambodia perfectly aligns with our global vision and growth plan, which is to become a leading telecom company by 2020. We are constantly looking for further investment opportunities with telecom operators in any part of the world and we’ve set ourselves a target of investing in 20 countries by 2020,” said Mr. Tao Duc Thang, General Director of Viettel Global.

With the purchase of Beeline’s assets and telecom licenses, the deal solidifies Viettel as the leading mobile operator in Cambodia, accounting for 50% market share and the biggest Internet service provider covering 96% nationwide including the nation’s remote and isolated areas. New and existing consumers will also stand to benefit from Metfone’s leading network reach and capabilities.

As part of its business strategy for Cambodia, Viettel will look at enhancing and developing the country’s telecommunications infrastructure with the addition of 4G and 5G services in the future.

“Today’s announcement is an important milestone for us, as we build on enhancing our network availability and quality, and extending our range of products and services in Cambodia. Customers can look forward to enjoying even better quality and coverage, higher speeds, value-added services, and access to 4G services in the near future. We will continue to develop the infrastructure and our capabilities in Cambodia to provide users with technologically advanced, affordable and reliable solutions,” said Mr. Thang.

Viettel has invested in 10 markets over the last 10 years with almost US$10 billion revenue in 2014 and today connects over 260 million people in South America, Africa and Asia, including Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Timor-Leste, Haiti, Mozambique, Peru and Cameroon.
