Team Novo Nordisk er et globalt sportsteam med flere end 100 cykelryttere, triatleter og løbere, som alle har diabetes, hvor det professionelle cykelhold er flagskibet. Formålet med Team Novo Nordisk er at udbrede kendskabet til diabetes og give diabetikere ny viden og inspiration i deres dagligdag.

Trofeo Laigueglia er blandt de indledende løb i den Internationale Cykelunions (UCI) Europe Tour 2013-kalender. Løbet er Team Novo Nordisks første mulighed for at udfordre den nye trup, der består af 17 professionelle ryttere med diabetes fra 10 forskellige lande.

"Team Novo Nordisk er en del af vores mangeårige Changing Diabetes® program, der har til formål at skabe opmærksomhed om og bremse den globale diabetesepidemi, som påvirker 371 millioner mennesker i hele verden og deres familier," siger Jakob Riis, koncerndirektør i Novo Nordisk.

Trofeo Laigueglia er et årligt tilbagevendende endagsløb på 196,5 km, som i 2013 kan fejre sit 50-års jubilæum. Tider, resultater og anden information om løbet vil blive oplyst på http://www.teamnovonordisk.com, og interesserede kan ligeledes følge holdet på http://www.facebook.com/TeamNovoNordisk og http://www.twitter.com/TeamNovoNordisk.

"Vi glæder os til vores første cykelløb som et 100% diabeteshold," siger Phil Southerland, medstifter og CEO for Team Novo Nordisk. "Når man bliver diagnosticeret med diabetes, tror mange mennesker, at de ikke længere er i stand til at leve et normalt liv og realisere deres drømme, men Team Novo Nordisk viser, at med god diabetesregulering er alting muligt."

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
