La vision des Emirats arabes unis pour 2020

DUBAI, UAE, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Métropole multiculturelle composée de plus de 200 nationalités, Dubaï et les E.A.U. font preuve d'une longue tradition d'accueil. De ce fait, il est tout à fait naturel que les E.A.U. se portent candidat à l'organisation de l'Exposition Universelle. Les millions d'habitants et les personnes qui visitent l'émirat chaque année ont pleinement conscience que l'innovation et l'interconnectivité avec le monde font partie intégrante de l'identité de cette ville.

Le thème de la candidature de Dubaï, « Connecter les esprits, Construire le futur », s'appuie sur trois sous-thèmes qui représentent les facteurs clés du développement global : Durabilité (des ressources durables en énergie et en eau), Mobilité (des systèmes logistiques et de transport intelligents) et Opportunités (de nouveaux axes de développement économique). Si la candidature des E.A.U. est retenue pour l'organisation de l'Exposition Universelle de 2020, ce sont 25 millions de visiteurs qui sont attendus sur le site choisi pour l'Exposition, le Centre d'affaires de Jebel Ali, pour une période de six mois.

Les Emirats arabes unis seraient le premier pays dans la zone Moyen-Orient, Afrique du Nord, Asie du Sud-Est à organiser l'Exposition Universelle. L'événement représenterait un nouvel épisode marquant de l'histoire des Expositions Universelles, qui a commencé en 1851 à Hyde Park à Londres, et qui a depuis régulièrement réuni des millions de personnes à travers le monde. Si la candidature de Dubaï est sélectionnée, 70% des visiteurs viendraient de l'étranger, une première dans l'histoire des Expositions Universelles.

L'Exposition Universelle de 2020 coïncidera également avec le Jubilée d'Or des E.A.U. Depuis sa création il y a 41 ans, le pays a su s'imposer comme étant un des leaders des économies émergentes de la région. D'ici 2020, les E.A.U. auront renforcé encore davantage leur position de centre majeur de commerce et de tourisme, reliant l'Est à l'Ouest et le Sud au Nord. Le tiers de la population mondiale vit dans un rayon de 4 heures de vol de Dubaï. Par conséquent, l'opportunité de découvrir les dernières innovations technologiques, architecturales et culturelles sera d'autant plus intéressante pour un public international.

Dubaï, E.A.U., est en lice avec quatre autres villes candidates à l'organisation de l'Exposition Universelle de 2020 : Ayutthaya (Thaïlande), Ekaterinbourg (Russie), Izmir (Turquie) et Sao Paulo (Brésil). La ville gagnante sera annoncée en novembre 2013 à l'issue d'un vote effectué par les 161 pays membres du Bureau International des Expositions - l'organisme international chargé de superviser les candidatures, la sélection et l'organisation des Expositions Universelles.

Nombre d'inventions majeures comme le téléphone ou la machine à écrire, ont été présentées au public pour la première fois lors de précédentes Expositions Universelles. Imaginez ce qui pourrait émerger à Dubaï en 2020…

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment.

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
