SAN FRANCISCO, PARIS and SAN DIEGO, February 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Technicolor becomes Premier-level Alliance member, will contribute Qeo and work with AllJoyn creator Qualcomm and other members to create IoE interoperability

The AllSeen Alliance, the broadest cross-industry consortium to date to advance adoption and innovation in the "Internet of Everything" (IoE) in homes and industry, today announces that Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH), a worldwide technology leader in the media and entertainment sector, is joining the organization as a Premier member and will contribute Qeo technology to the Alliance.

The AllSeen Alliance, formed in December 2013, expands upon the "Internet of Things" (IoT) to include more functionality and interactions across various brands and sectors, such as the connected home, healthcare, education, automotive and enterprise. The members of the AllSeen Alliance contribute software and engineering resources as part of their collaboration that builds on the open source AllJoyn software and services framework, originally developed by Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. The addition of Qeo further strengthens the Alliance's ability to expand the ecosystem of companies working on IoE.

Technicolor has developed Qeo to be a simple, secure and future proof communication framework that enables a simple and user-friendly "Connected Life" experience, enabling consumers to enjoy the full potential of their devices and services.

Today, Technicolor brings Qeo to the AllSeen Alliance to augment its capabilities by enabling a more data-centric publish/subscribe set of application programming interfaces (API). By combining Qeo's APIs and secure architecture with AllJoyn's software and services framework for discovery, connectivity and interoperable services, developers and device makers will have even more options and even greater flexibility in how they implement a fully distributed Internet of Everything.

"The AllSeen Alliance is excited to have Technicolor join as a premier member," said Liat Ben-Zur, AllSeen Alliance Board Chairman. "The combination of Qeo and AllJoyn fits the Alliance's mandate perfectly as we expand the breadth of interaction models for developers."

"Having originally developed AllJoyn, Qualcomm warmly welcomes the opportunity to have its capabilities further augmented by the addition of Qeo. We believe the entire industry will have an even stronger incentive to align around a single standard," said Rob Chandhok, President of Qualcomm Connected Experiences.

"As with AllJoyn, the mission of Qeo is to solve the issues created by heterogeneous and closed ecosystems that fragment the user experience. The combined benefits of the AllJoyn and Qeo frameworks provide more robust tools to cover all IoT use cases in a standardized manner. We are truly excited to be part of a group of innovators that are coming together for the benefit of the consumer," said Michel Rahier, President of Technicolor's Connected Home division.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.
