Microsoft and NEC Expand Strategic Partnership to Boost Business Resiliency and Growth

Published

on

TOKYO, Jul 13, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – Microsoft Corp. (Microsoft) and NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) on Tuesday announced an expansion of their decades-long collaboration. Through a new multi-year strategic partnership, the companies will leverage Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, NEC’s network and IT expertise, including 5G technologies, and each other’s AI and IoT solutions to help enterprise customers and the public sector across multiple markets and industries further accelerate their cloud adoption and digital transformation initiatives.

The partnership will see NEC adopt Microsoft Azure as its preferred cloud platform to deliver enhanced capabilities to drive sustained digitalization, help customers transform their business models, and build Digital Workplaces for the post-pandemic “new normal.”

To accelerate NEC’s Digital Workplace innovation and workforce transformation, the companies will work together to migrate NEC’s on-premises IT environment to Azure and deploy Azure Virtual Desktop and other Azure services among the NEC Group’s 110,000 employees worldwide. This modernization builds on NEC’s existing Microsoft 365 platform and will enable a highly sustainable environment that is more secure and robust, accelerating cloud migration for NEC and its customers throughout the commercial and public sector in Japan and around the world.

The companies will work together to help improve digital services for public sector and enterprise customers through workplace and workforce transformation. Greater speed and lower-latency data connections will provide high-performance network experiences to create more efficient workplaces and empower employees to realize more personalized work styles for public sector as well as private sector customers.

Leveraging the assets of both companies, including Microsoft’s Intelligent Edge solutions and NEC’s private 5G networking technologies, the companies will work together to help customers across industries transform. In retail, for example, the two companies will work together to analyze customer transaction data in real time using AI to better understand buying patterns, improve operational efficiency and identify new market opportunities.

The combination of Azure and both companies’ AI and IoT technologies and expertise will enhance NEC’s customer experience through advanced solutions and enable more secure maintenance and operation of stores. In addition, NEC and Microsoft plan to explore network innovation initiatives built on Microsoft Azure for enterprise domains and specific industries.

Through the partnership, the companies will work together to double the number of digital-focused engineers within the NEC Group who are specialized in Microsoft technologies. This investment in technical capabilities and the expertise of NEC’s employees will help ensure customers’ digital transformation success, benefiting the market and society.

“As we’ve seen over the past year, digital adoption curves are accelerating across every industry and business function,” said Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO, Microsoft. “Our strategic partnership with NEC brings together the power of Azure and Microsoft 365 with NEC’s services and infrastructure expertise to help public and private sector customers build resilience and transform during this era of rapid change.”

“NEC is pleased to enter into this strategic collaboration with Microsoft Corp.,” said Takayuki Morita, president and CEO of NEC Corporation. “With Microsoft’s trusted cloud and services, the experience that NEC has cultivated in its own systems, and both companies’ AI and IoT technologies, we will enable companies globally to use digital services that are safer and more secure than ever before as they progress with digital initiatives.”

“The need for sustainable transformation to ensure business resiliency and growth has never been more important in the world and especially Japan,” said Hitoshi Yoshida, president & CEO, Microsoft Japan. “Our partnership will help accelerate the industry’s cloud-based digital transformation and utilization of data migration and help Japan’s continued success globally, leading to greater economic and societal prosperity.”

This announcement is based on a history of strong collaboration between Microsoft and NEC spanning more than 40 years.

Solar Retailers: Stop Searching For Solar Marketing Ideas. Your Passage To Growth Has Finally Arrived.

Published

on

Wednesday, July 28, 2021 – PV Passage is here with the goal to disrupt the solar industry. They are paving the way for smaller suppliers to compete against large-scale, corporate retailers.

Built from a team of industry professionals, each member has over 14 years of experience in the solar market. Lived experience from the days of pre-$8000 government rebates through turbulent markets and an ever-evolving industry to successfully support retailers in becoming long-term resilient players.

Acting as a guide, PV Passage’s purpose is to support the smaller suppliers in each step of the process. From lead generation to supply management to sales training, PV Passage is here to even the playing field, giving David the slingshot he needs to take on Goliath.

With a formula of proven solar marketing ideas, reliable and consistent supply, in-depth sales training, and a deep understanding of the industry, the team at PV Passage has got all you need to grow your striving business to reach its full potential

It’s no secret that the more prominent international suppliers dominate the industry. These companies have a stronghold in the supply chain. With no exclusivity offered, retailers are competing against each other for small profit margins. For the smaller of these retailers, it can be simply too hard to compete – until now.

No matter where in Australia you are located, PV Passage has proven solutions. From solar in Tasmania to Townsville to Byron Bay and beyond, a tailored solution to suit your business’s goals is waiting for you.

With vast experience navigating a competitive and cut-throat industry, the PV Passage team has identified the gaps that restrain quality operators from expanding beyond their limits. Knowing your product and delivering a flawless service is not always enough. Raising your profile to a necessary point of scale takes time and knowledge. This is where the challenges arise. This is where PV Passage fills the gap for small but ambitious solar providers.

The only solar distributor in Australia to offer real-world competitive advantages for the growing solar retailer. Advantages such as product exclusivity, geo exclusivity, tailored sales training, and a reliable supply chain. Retailers have the chance to skip the competition and focus on what they’re good at: providing a high-quality service.

PV Passage is looking for candidates that best match their growth model, and partnerships are limited, so enquire now if your business is ready to take passage.

DigiMax Expands Global Marketing into Asia with Signing of Collaboration Deal in Hong Kong

Published

on

TORONTO, ON, July 28, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – DigiMax Global Inc. (the “Company” or “DigiMax”) (CSE:DIGI)(OTC:DBKSF), a company that provides artificial intelligence (“AI”) and cryptocurrency technology solutions, is pleased to announce that it has signed its first collaboration agreement to expand CryptoHawk services into Hong Kong and surrounding areas.

CryptoHawk is an Artificial Intelligence driven, price-trend prediction tool that can be profitably used by any investor interested in trading Bitcoin or Ethereum. The tool is different as it uses AI and machine learning to capture profit from the volatility of crypto currencies, rather than incur the risk of buy-and-hold investments. As previously announced by the Company, in its first full month of operation in June 2021, CryptoHawk signals achieved a 1-month, long-short return on BTC of more than 25% compared to a buy-and-hold return for the same period of a loss of 10%. In both up and down markets, CryptoHawk has the potential to deliver subscribers much higher returns when trading.

DigiMax is collaborating with Mr. Tony Tong in Hong Kong and other Asian regions where he has substantial influence. Mr. Tong is Co-Chairman & Co-Founder of Hong Kong Blockchain Association HKBA.hk.org, Council Member of International Digital Asset Exchange Association IDAXA.org , and President of GlobalSTOx.io & APX.HK. After graduating in engineering at the University of Minnesota and spending 15 years in the United States in several leading high-tech companies, Mr. Tong returned to Hong Kong where he has held many high-profile roles a few of which include:

– Co-Founder of Pacific Financial Services and Super Angels Ventures.
– Frequent speaker and bilingual moderator for leading fintech, blockchain, investment banking events, including Blockchain Economic Forum Singapore, Global Gaming Expo G2EAsia, Goldman Sachs, UBS, CLSA , Morgan Stanley Asia Investment Summit, Bank of America Merrill Lynch China Investment Summit.

The collaboration agreement between DigiMax and Mr. Tong will include the issuance of 200,000 common shares of DigiMax and an award of additional shares as he assists DigiMax in successfully completing partnering deals with exchanges or directly increasing the number of CryptoHawk subscribers in Asia.

“We have known DigiMax and its founders since 2017 and we are impressed that they have withstood the test of time in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world,” said Tony Tong. “The CryptoHawk offering is already proving itself as an excellent tool for crypto traders to use to increase their returns and we look forward to working together to develop more markets in Asia with them.”

“We are excited to be able to join forces with Tony Tong who we respect as a prominent leader in the crypto industry in Asia,” said DigiMax CEO, Chris Carl. “Tony has been a leader and an innovator in every facet of the blockchain and crypto currency space and we are certain that CryptoHawk can deliver a whole new level of value and power to anyone interested in trading or owning crypto currencies in their portfolio.”

KIROBO Update

Kirobo, a blockchain technology company into which DigiMax has made a strategic investment (see May 3, 2021 Press Release), yesterday announced it has launched its ‘P2P Swap Button’, a decentralized tool allowing cryptocurrency users to execute token swaps without having to use an exchange or custodial third party.

By taking the swap off-exchange, the tool allows users to decide their own prices for their tokens and transact directly with peers. As a result, slippage is avoided completely.

Asaf Naim, co-founder and CEO of Kirobo, said: “Until now, it wasn’t possible to execute a swap without losing money, because exchange algorithms adjust token prices according to the amounts put up for sale. We’re allowing people to trade without an exchange and to set their own prices, with complete security, for the first time ever.”

Kirobo’s safe transfer platform secures transactions with an authentication key, the component parts of which are divided between the first party, the smart contract, and the Kirobo server. There’s no single point of failure, and Kirobo does not hold users’ funds at any point.
