Raytheon setzt sich für stärkere Zusammenarbeit zwischen transatlantischen Industrien ein

- Internationaler CEO richet sich an die Münchner Sicherkeitskonferenz

MÜNCHEN, 1. Februar 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In seiner Präsentation auf der 50. Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz forderte der CEO von Raytheon International Inc., John D. Harris II, heute die Teilnehmer der Konferenz auf, neue Möglichkeiten für eine stärkere Zusammenarbeit zwischen transatlantischen Industrien anzustreben. Dabei sagte er: „Wir müssen Initiativen für eine größere Kosteneffizienz verfolgen, um unsere Verteidiungskapazitäten zu erhalten und zu verbessern."

Harris machte seine Ausführungen während einer Podiumsdiskussion zur Zukunft der europäischen Verteidigungspolitik, an der auch der derzeitige und ehemalige europäische Verteidigungsminister und der CEO der Airbus Group teilnahmen. Er erklärte weiter: „Die Aussicht auf einen offeneren, wettbewerbsfähigeren Markt auf der Grundlage eines Freihandelsabkommens zwischen den USA und der EU stellt keine Bedrohung, sondern neue Chancen für europäische und nordamerikanische Firmen in der Verteidigungsbranche dar. Gemeinsam können wir neue Maßstäbe setzen und die Zusammenarbeit in der Sicherheits- und Verteidigungspolitik global fördern."

Raytheon beschäftigt über 3000 Personen und hat 500 Lieferanten in ganz Europa. Die Beteiligungen und Partnerschaften des Unternehmens in Großbritannien, Deutschland, Spanien und Frankreich setzen allesamt auf vor Ort entwickelte Technologien und Fachwissen, um innovative Lösungen zu entwickeln, die in die EU, die USA und die ganze Welt exportiert werden.

Die Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz vereint 80 Delegationen aus Europa und dem Rest der Welt, darunter hochrangige Politiker, Kabinettsbeamte und Leiter internationaler Organisationen.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
