Keysight Technologies, Inc. has announced the electronic measurement business of Agilent Technologies has begun operating under the Keysight name. It will remain a wholly owned subsidiary of Agilent Technologies until early November when the separation is expected to be completed and Keysight begins trading on the NYSE under the symbol KEYS.
Keysight is a market leader holding the number one position in its industry segments of communications; aerospace and defense; and industrial, computers, and semiconductors. Keysight’s separation from Agilent was announced in September 2013.
“As we launch our new company, we are mindful of our rich heritage as part of Agilent and prior to that, Hewlett-Packard,” said Ron Nersesian, Keysight president and CEO. “We are also mindful of our responsibility and commitment to our stakeholders including customers, our shareholders and our employees. We look forward to the many opportunities ahead that will allow us to focus solely on electronic measurement and showcase the leading-edge technologies that our customers have come to expect.”
Weaved and SafeLogic Announce Partnership to Provide Military Grade Security to the IoE Device Market
Weaved and SafeLogic join forces to provide ultimate security to the Weaved device network service offering.
Weaved, a pioneer in Internet-of-Everything (IoE) web-based connectivity services, has announced their partnership with SafeLogic, the new industry leader in validated cryptography, to extend their lead as the industry’s most secure platform for IoE(Internet of Everything) devices.
The growing popularity of IoE devices has brought along with it the unavoidable risk of malicious activity by hackers, the loss of sensitive data, or even violations of users’ privacy. The commercial success of the connected home concept is dependent on building ever-increasing confidence by consumers in the safe operation of their connected devices. For example, using a credit card to make purchases over the Internet was once considered risky but is now accepted as commonplace. Similarly, Weaved and SafeLogic believe that the adoption of IoE devices will continue to accelerate if users share the same level of confidence. SafeLogic cryptographic engines have been deployed by many of the most trusted names in the IT industry, making them an ideal technology partner to provide enhanced security services to the Weaved platform.
As Ryo Koyama, CEO of Weaved, explained, “The need for integrated and robust security can’t be overstated in the growing market for IoE devices. At Weaved, we are experts in providing the software and services necessary to securely connect devices across the Internet. We are delighted to work with SafeLogic as our partner to extend the security measures of our platform and ensure every device using the Weaved backend services can benefit from the industry’s highest standards for data integrity, data at rest encryption, and secure communications to a trusted implementation.”
Ray Potter, CEO of SafeLogic, agreed, “Every legacy connected device is potentially vulnerable, and the public is starting to recognize that. Weaved has thought through the problems of device security and their embedded and network services already provide the best in class architecture approach. By leveraging SafeLogic’s validated cryptographic solutions, Weaved has taken yet another major step towards a secure and reliable network. We are very proud to partner with them to provide the highest level of cryptographic solutions, for the most demanding users.”
According to a new market research report, “Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Market by Applications (Process Industries – Chemicals, F&B, Oil & Gas, Pulp & Paper, Lifesciences Power, Water & Wastewater Management Discrete Industries – Automotive, Medical Devices, Aerospace & Defense, FMCG) and Geography (Americas, EMEA, & APAC) – Forecast & Analysis to 2014 – 2020” published by MarketsandMarkets, the total market for the global Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) Market will be worth $12.66 Billion by 2020 at an estimated CAGR of 11.02%.
The involvement of information technology in manufacturing process has increased over the last few years. Information technology is used to improve the overall result. MES has helped many industries to improve their process which leads to a sustainable improvement.
MES has changed the manual operations into paperless operations for faster data transfer and better decision making. Connected network of various MES systems is the biggest feature of the MES. This has helped senior managers to take decisions based on the real time data from across the borders.
The Manufacturing Execution System Market was estimated to be $6.76 Billion in 2014 and will be worth $12.66 Billion by 2020 at an estimated CAGR of 11.02%.
Discrete and process industries are the two major categories of manufacturing that MES serves. MES has been used in process industries for a long time; however, discrete industries are very large in nature and have the potential to grow for MES to be implemented. Automobile, healthcare, aerospace and defense, and FMCG are the major ones among discrete industry.
North America and Europe account for similar market share in the global Manufacturing Execution System Market. Since the APAC region is becoming the manufacturing hub for most industries, this region possesses great potential for the MES market and all major players are focusing on APAC.
