Confirmation de l'inauguration de TV Connect 2013 par Electronic Arts

Richard Hilleman, responsable de la création chez Electronic Arts, studio de jeux vidéos de premier plan, prononcera le discours d'inauguration du TV Connect de cette année (anciennement baptisé Forum mondial IP&TV). M. Hilleman donnera le coup d'envoi de cette conférence-exposition de trois jours, qui se tient pour la neuvième année consécutive, et qui s'intéressera particulièrement à l'évolution des jeux vidéo en ligne dans le contexte de la convergence de l'écosystème du divertissement connecté.

M. Hilleman, champion du jeu vidéo, développe des produits pour Electronic Arts et promeut la marque EA Sports depuis plus de 20 ans. En étroite collaboration avec des concepteurs de jeux vidéo, il a lancé la production de jeux largement plébiscités, notamment Madden Football, décrit comme le jeu le mieux vendu de l'histoire des jeux en Amérique du Nord.

L'accent mis par TV Connect sur les jeux vidéo se traduit par l'intervention spéciale de M. Hilleman, qui dirigera l'attention sur l'importance du rôle des jeux dans l'évolution de la télévision connectée. M. Hilleman organisera également une table ronde qui explorera le rôle clé des nouveaux acteurs dans la motivation de l'expérience utilisateur. D'autres dirigeants du secteur y participeront, notamment Pascal De Mul, responsable mondial des partenariats chez Spotify et Jeff G Weber, président du contenu et des ventes publicitaires chez AT&T.

Interrogé sur le rôle des jeux vidéos au sein de l'écosystème en évolution du divertissement connecté, M. Hilleman a déclaré : « La télévision connectée dispose de plusieurs défenseurs motivés par des objectifs différents. Aux États-Unis et en Europe, elle tente de se faire une place sur un écran déjà chargé de contenus divers, notamment la console de jeux. Dans ce cas, le marché de la télévision connectée devra trouver une niche, ou délocaliser une activité existante. Dans certains autres territoires, il existe davantage d'espace libre disponible pour la télévision connectée. Elle peut y trouver sa place et définir sa propre proposition de valeur.

« Ce secteur est en mouvement permanent avec l'ajout de nouvelles techniques de jeux et de processus créatifs innovants. La courbe d'apprentissage sera rude pour tout le monde », a conclu M. Hilleman.

Cette année, TV Connect présente Gaming Connect, une session gratuite qui se tiendra le premier jour dans le cadre du Connected Innovation Theatre, et qui rappelle le thème de la manifestation. Les visiteurs y découvriront les possibilités offertes par le divertissement concurrentiel aux prestataires de service, aux opérateurs, aux fournisseurs de contenu, aux développeurs de jeux vidéos, aux réseaux de médias sociaux et aux éditeurs. Les fournisseurs sont également attendus : ils profiteront des dernières nouveautés en matière d'espace de diffusion, d'innovation sur le nuage et de réseaux de jeux vidéos, et verront comment ces innovations peuvent améliorer l'expérience de jeu en temps réel dans un monde aux multiples plateformes.

Certains partenaires du secteur des jeux vidéos ont déjà fait part de leur soutien à cette manifestation, notamment TIGA, l'Association internationale des développeurs de jeux vidéos (International Game Developers Association - IGDA), Develop Magazine, Pocket Gamer et Branded Entertainment. Kate Edwards, directeur exécutif de l'IGDA, souligne l'importance de cet événement : « Les jeux vidéos se diffusent de plus en plus largement à travers les populations, les lieux géographiques et les plateformes. L'IGDA est donc ravie de s'associer au Gaming Connect à l'occasion du TV Connect. Il s'agit d'une chance sans pareil pour élargir l'horizon de notre association vers de nouveaux membres et pour renforcer nos relations au-delà de la communauté du développement des jeux vidéos strictement dite. »

La manifestation aura lieu à l'Olympia Exhibition Centre de Londres du 19 au 21 mars 2013.

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...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
