Tim Davie BBC Worldwide is due to launch a malesk

first_imgTim DavieBBC Worldwide is due to launch a male-skewing factual entertainment network called BBC Brit, completing its line-up of three new international channel brands.Speaking at a Broadcast Press Guild lunch in London, BBC Worldwide CEO Tim Davie confirmed the plans, with the channel due to go live during the coming 2014/15 financial year.BBC Brit will launch along with BBC Earth, which already exists as a branded programming block, and new drama network BBC First – both of which were named as new genre brands for BBC Worldwide’s portfolio of channels and services in October last year.All three are slated to roll out on a market-by-market basis. BBC First will debut in Australia on the Foxtel platform in August, though launch dates and territories for BBC Earth and BBC Brit are yet to be announced.Discussing the new BBC Brit channel, Davie said that it will primarily be offered as a pay channel, but said “we wouldn’t rule out being free-to-air in certain markets, depending on the ad market.”In terms of content, BBC Brit is likely to air programmes such as auto show Top Gear, as well as factual-entertainment history programming and quiz formats, though Davie said this could vary by market. The channel will air older shows, as well as new commissions, he said.Asked whether the new line-up of BBC Brit, BBC Earth and BBC First would result in BBC Worldwide closing some existing BBC-branded international channels, Davie said: “Where we’ve got successful, profitable businesses, we’ll leave them, but actually in a lot of cases we’ll transition.“I think there’s other markets – across Asia, central Europe, [and] a lot of places –where you’ve got in some cases a quite small BBC imprint. There [it] would be more effective to transition out and get to brands that I think have got increased horsepower.”More broadly, Davie said “it’s fair to say that our channels business is under-exploited.” He claimed that focusing on consumer brands and moving BBC Worldwide from a “B2B company to a B2C company in channels” would help transform the business.Giving an update on the progress of BBC Worldwide’s existing strategy – which also includes content investment and a focus on digital innovation – Davie said Worldwide is on track to meet its target of around £200 million (€243 million) investment in  premium content in the next financial year.On the digital side, he said that BBC Earth, as well as becoming a linear channel brand, would also launch as a new section on both the BBC.co.uk website and the international BBC.com.BBC Worldwide will also become the commercial operator of the planned BBC Store, on behalf of the BBC, if the Trust approves the pay-to-download digital content scheme, said Davie.last_img read more

Google is due to roll out its fibre broadband init

first_imgGoogle is due to roll out its fibre broadband initiative in San Antonio, Texas – it’s largest Google Fiber city to date.Announcing the move, Google said it will soon enter the design phase of building out the fibre network in the city, which it claims has 1.4 million residents and “one of the biggest and fastest growing cities in the country.”“We’ll work closely with city leaders over the next several months to plan the layout of over 4,000 miles of fibre-optic cables—enough to stretch to Canada and back—across the metro area. This is no small task, and it will take some time, but we can’t wait to get started,” said Mark Strama, head of Google Fiber, Texas.Google first started experimenting with Gigabit-speed broadband almost five years ago and now offers internet and fibre-powered TV services in Kansas City, Austin and Provo.Earlier this year, Salt Lake City joined Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville and Raleigh-Durham as metro areas that are also currently in the design phase for Google Fibre rollouts.Google was previously exploring whether to launch in San Antonio, Phoenix, Portland, and San Jose.last_img read more

first_imgOutSystems has embarked on a new initiative to bring artificial intelligence and machine learning to software development. The company announced Project Turing, an initiative designed to explore how AI and ML can transform software development in the next decade.Project Turing is named after the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, Alan Turing. The center was launched on the anniversary of the first detailed design of a stored-program computer proposal by Turing.“Our bold vision for Project Turing fits perfectly with the principal ideas we had when we started OutSystems 17 years ago – reduce the complexity of developing and changing enterprise software. It’s in our DNA,” said Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO. “This initiative fits perfectly with the first principle ideas we had when we started OutSystems: to reduce the cost, time and complexity of developing and changing enterprise software.”The center will focus on three main projects: 1. New AI assistants to accelerate application development. 2. Develop AI-based analyzers to decrease application maintenance costs. 3. Develop AI-based systems that will automatically generate new feature recommendations for new applications. “With AI, we see the potential to transform the entire software lifecycle where AI assistants help with everything from modeling new applications with the right architecture and user experiences to analyzing the business value and impact for the organization,” said Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO.According to the company, low-code development is intended to make software development easier. The main goal of the company is to reduce the complexity of developing and changing enterprise software. With Project Turing, the company believes AI assistants will  be crucial to low-code development.“With AI, we see the potential to transform the entire software development lifecycle,” said Rosado. “We envision a low-code development world where AI assistants help with everything from modeling new applications with the right architecture and user experiences to analyzing the business value and impact for the organization.”In addition, the company plans to commit 20 percent of its R&D resources to the initiative and partner with industry experts, technology leaders and universities to drive original research.

When Is Vista not Vista When Its Mojave

first_img 2019 Entrepreneur 360 List When Is Vista not Vista? When It’s Mojave! 6 min read Apply Now » Add to Queue Brought to you by PCWorld Technology August 5, 2008center_img –shares Steve Bass The Microsofties are appealing to you to try Windows Vista. You’ll really, really like it, they insist. They’ve gone out of their way to prove to you that it’s a swell operating system, too, by creating a series of see-we-told-you-so videos.Microsoft’s ExperimentThe crew from Redmond dressed Windows Vista up in a flashy new box, called it Mojave, the next Microsoft OS, and foisted it upon–no, sorry, make that “introduced it to”–volunteers.Before the volunteers were shown Mojave, they were asked about Vista. Some said that they hated Vista, even though they’d never tried it. After seeing and playing with some of Vista, oops, Mojave’s features, most of the volunteers were impressed, with many of them oooh-ing and aaaah-ing.When the secret was revealed, most of the volunteers couldn’t wait to get their hands on a copy. One volunteer was nonplussed to hear that Mojave was actually Vista and asked, “Why is it faster?” In the experiment they used an HP Pavilion DV 2000 with 2GB of RAM–and I’m curious if that contributed to Vista’s great performance.If I had my way, I’d have Microsoft do another video, handing volunteers a copy of Mojave and asking them to install it on their existing PC or notebook. I wonder if their reactions would be quite so enthusiastic. BTW, here are Microsoft’s results.Vista ResourcesI still haven’t switched to Vista. I know I’ll do it eventually, but for the moment, my system’s running just fine. Nonetheless, I want you to know about a few Vista resources, just in case you’re using it–or, like me, thinking about the future.Answers to Vista Users’ Nagging Questions20 Vista Downloads to Tweak & Improve Your SystemWindows Vista: 15 Reasons to SwitchFarewell Vista, Hello XPWhat Does It Take to Get a PC With XP?Some of you may need the extra help that only a hefty resource book can provide. The book I recommend is Windows Vista Inside Out, Deluxe Edition (Microsoft Press; ISBN-10: 0735625247) by Ed Bott, Carl Siechert, and Craig Stinson. For under $40, you’ll get every Vista question answered and learn things about the OS that may improve your experience. It’s available on Amazon.com.Quick aside: Microsoft has confirmed it’s abandoning Windows. They won’t say when, but they have talked about what it’s going to look like. Read “Microsoft Prepares for End of Windows With Midori” and tell me if it makes sense to you.Fix Outlook’s Messy E-Mail QuotesOkay, enough about Vista. Now let’s pick on Outlook. Did you ever notice how well Outlook can mess up e-mail quotes? You know, the way it causes line breaks to make your e-mail look like hell?For the cost of a download you can make your Outlook e-mails look sharp and, more important, easy to read. The trick is Outlook-QuoteFix, a free add-in that takes out the tedium of fixing Outlook’s quoting style.Outlook-QuoteFix works perfectly in XP and with Outlook 98 through 2003; there’s a macro that makes it compatible with Outlook 2007. BTW, there’s also a version for Outlook Express.Easy Way to Reset Your Windows PasswordDo you ever forget your login password? Probably not, because it’s 1234. (LOL–just kidding. I know you use strong passwords.) Nearly two years ago, I told you how to find your passwords (go to “Find Old E-Mail Messages Quickly” and scroll to the “I forgot the password…” hassle). Unfortunately, that fix would have cost you $70, just enough to fill up your car’s gas tank.I have terrific news: PC Login Now gives you a fairly straightforward way to reset the Windows Administrator or user password in Windows Server 2008, 2003, Vista, and XP. Once you download the free ISO file, you burn it onto a CD and boot from it.

SundaySky surveyed customers of more than 60 household names to gauge customer satisfaction with brand efforts in both personalization and video spaces, scoring the leaders of retail, travel, healthcare, telecommunications, insurance and financial services in the new Personalization x Video Index.“Consumers have access to unprecedented amounts of information and options, and as new entrants compete for their attention, brands need to compete on a dimension of customer experience where each experience is personal, valuable and emotionally engaging to each person”Separately, video and personalization are proven strategies for providing value to customers and improving customer satisfaction, and the convergence of these two approaches lifts consumers’ satisfaction with brand efforts. Consumers universally rated brands’ personalization efforts higher than they rated their video efforts. Bank of America achieved top rating for personalization in SundaySky’s Personalization x Video Index due to positive customer experience across advertising and owned media channels. In the financial industry, the brand beat out American Express in both personalization and video ratings. Overall, brands in the financial services industry have the highest personalization scores compared to other industries, likely due to high competition for seamless brand experiences and personalization for customers to bank anytime across multiple channels. The travel industry rated the highest in video, which can be attributed to the plethora of footage that brands leverage from destinations, activities, properties and other visual content.Marketing Technology News: PROS Launches Sales Agreement Management to Streamline Selling in Digital Era“Online video can serve digital business strategy professionals by increasing brand awareness, educating customers about products and services, and helping with lead generation, cross-selling, and upselling,” writes Nick Barber, Forrester analyst, in his April 2019 report Financial Services Firms Should Weave Online Video Into Every Customer Journey. “Specifically, video can… encourage customers to buy, … increase [their] satisfaction, [and] connect with [them] on an emotional level.”The Personalization x Video Index highlights leaderboards in several industries. Sephora leads Amazon for the top retail ratings in both personalization and video. Walmart earned 12th place ranking in both personalization and video, while Target is listed among the top five retailers. Verizon and AT&T led T-Mobile and Sprint on both personalization and video, with Verizon taking top marks against all telecommunications brands measured.Marketing Technology News: Vidyard Expands Offering to Bring Personalized Video App to Any Sales Professional, No Matter How They Work“Consumers have access to unprecedented amounts of information and options, and as new entrants compete for their attention, brands need to compete on a dimension of customer experience where each experience is personal, valuable and emotionally engaging to each person,” said Jim Dicso, CEO of SundaySky. “For the world’s biggest brands to attract, retain and ensure happy customers, SundaySky provides the platform and expertise they need for personalized, emotionally rich video that also scales across their millions of customers.”SundaySky’s research also revealed that only 29 percent of consumers reported the efforts to use their data for personalized experiences in consistent and seamless ways were satisfactory. SundaySky researchers advise brands need to incorporate personalization in video marketing strategies to keep up with demand, and there’s room for personalization improvement to ensure great consumer experiences. This advice comes from another recent study done by SundaySky on how personalized video can boost customer experience Net Promoter Scores. The study showed that the use of personalized video as a customer experience strategy correlates with up to a 48-point increase in NPS.Marketing Technology News: Agency Veteran Joao Machado Joins as Sabio’s SVP of Product Marketinglast_img read more

Captain Morgan behind Englands World Cup renaissance

first_img {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – England’s run to their first World Cup final in 27 years owes much to the leadership of Eoin Morgan, the quietly-spoken Irishman who could achieve on Sunday what no England skipper has ever managed.England completed a stunning victory over Australia on Thursday to set up a decider against 2015 runners-up New Zealand at Lord’s. A first World Cup triumph for England, just four years after one of their worst displays in the competition, would be one of the most remarkable turnarounds in English sport.Former England captain Michael Vaughan has no doubt about Morgan’s role in transforming the team from a laughing stock into one that could deliver such a complete performance in the eight-wicket thrashing of Australia. AdChoices广告”The reason why England’s one-day cricket has been revolutionised is down to Morgan,” the Yorkshireman said.Chris Woakes, whose fine spell of three wickets for 20 runs, helped bowl out Australia for 223, agrees that the 32-year-old’s leadership has been central to the way England have coped with the pressure and expectation of being a host nation.”Eoin is cool as ice with everything he does,” Woakes said.”He is great to have as a captain — he just keeps everything simple and doesn’t change his emotions too much, which in the heat of the battle, (helps) to keep your mind clear,” he added.”He has led from the front in terms of the way the batsmen have played. They take the attack to the bowlers, they never sit off. He has decided that was the way this team should play. Everyone speaks about Morgs in the same fashion. He is a great bloke off the field and the same on it.”In the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, England did not reach the knockouts, winning only two of their six group games and losing to Bangladesh.Morgan consulted with leadership experts at the beginning of the four-year cycle, including England’s own team psychologist David Young. Along with the England management he took a year to gather ideas and concentrate his thoughts into a plan for the team, with clear demands for the players and an approach to the game based on attacking cricket.Then England team director Andrew Strauss backed Morgan and his plan and could not hide his delight as he watched the win over Australia.”I’ve found myself getting quite emotional watching it because all we wanted four years ago was for England to go out and play in a different style, a different brand of cricket,” he told Sky Sports.”We didn’t know where it was going to lead us but we thought it was England’s best chance of winning a World Cup and they’ve proved us right so far.”It was noticeable that in the immediate aftermath of the win over Australia at Edgbaston, Morgan, who had struck the winning runs and ended unbeaten on 45, was quick to acknowledge the role that his backroom staff had played.”Yes, it’s been a process for the last four years. In 2015 we were way off the mark, we struggled against the top teams, and the teams that sat below that, so there was quite a drastic change in the way we played and the way we looked at playing our 50-over cricket. “That has worked out extremely well for us and given the support that we’ve had throughout, the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board), the backroom staff, as players we have taken that as far as we can so far.”Now comes the biggest test, against a New Zealand team that were so impressive in their semi-final win over India.The key to victory, says Morgan, is for England to maintain the same positive approach and not let the occasion at Lord’s impact on their decision-making.”Sunday is not a day to shy away from, it’s a day to look forward to, much like today,” he said. “It will be a matter of the same again trying to produce everything that we can performance-wise but — enjoy the day.” (Reporting by Simon Evans; Editing by Toby Davis) Cricket 10 Jul 2019 Morgan’s England ‘a different animal’, says Plunkett Related News Cricket 08 Jul 2019 New Zealand can beat India with an explosive start, says Vettori Related News Cricket 10 Jul 2019 England wait on pitch before naming bowling attacklast_img read more

Supreme Court orders commencement of work for Phase 4 of Delhi Metro

(File Photo)The Supreme Court Friday ordered implementation of the 103.94 km, Phase 4 of the Delhi metro and directed the authorities concerned to commence construction work on the project.A bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta was told by the counsel appearing for the Delhi government that they have agreed to give a go ahead to the Phase 4 of the Delhi metro.The apex court was hearing a matter in which the Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) had recently filed a report stating that the approval for the project was held up since 2014.The EPCA report said that there was a “stalemate” in discussions between the central government and Delhi government on certain financial aspects of the project.”There is a stalemate in the discussions between the Union Government and the Delhi government on different financial aspects of the project. The Delhi government has on April 10, 2019 communicated its direction that DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) would not start work of Delhi Metro phase-IV till these issues are resolved,” it said.The stalemate came under the apex court’s scanner which said it would pass order in the matter as the “project cannot wait”.The court was also told by the apex court that the project was “critical” and the pending issue should be resolved soon.The Centre had told the court that project financing has been done in consonance with the Metro Rail Policy of August 2017 and metro projects of other cities like Bhopal, Indore, Kanpur, Patna and Agra have been sanctioned on the same financial pattern as of Delhi metro phase-IV.The EPCA report had said that the project is “critical as it will add another 104 km to the network” and “it is designed to join the current network and will densify it and make the system more viable and attractive to commuters”.ALSO READ | Delhi Metro snag: Thousands stranded, traffic chokes Delhi-Gurgaon highway as Yellow Line collapsesALSO WATCH | Arvind Kejriwal announces free travel for women in Delhi Metro, busesFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
