Sembcorp Partners with EDB to Launch Industrial Living Laboratory in Singapore
Sep 28 15
Sembcorp Industries Ltd. has entered into a partnership with the Singapore Economic Development Board, or EDB, to launch industrial living laboratory in Singapore. As a living lab, Sembcorp will grant technology providers access and share insights into its proprietary wastewater treatment and waste-to-energy facilities on Jurong Island for late-stage test-bedding and co-innovation of water and environmental technologies. The Sembcorp Industrial Living Lab initiative is in line with the company's forward-looking approach in developing its competitive edge through technology and innovation, as well as Singapore's vision to be the leading demand driver of smart and sustainable urban solutions, which was identified as a key growth driver for the economy. The Sembcorp Industrial Living Lab initiative offers technology providers a rare opportunity to leverage best-in-class industrial wastewater treatment and waste-to-energy facilities to conduct applied R&D (R&D) in areas such as smart water systems and carbon capture. The initiative will also see Sembcorp and EDB jointly investing up to a total of SGD 8 million to support the commercialisation of R&D projects from the pilot-testing stage to market-ready levels. Under the partnership, proposals from technology providers will be jointly evaluated by Sembcorp and EDB for their scalability, technological merits and economic impact to Singapore. Sembcorp's researchers and engineers will then work with successful applicants to test bed their new technologies in actual industrial settings. If the technologies are proven successful, they have the potential to be deployed in Sembcorp's global operations. This gives smaller players that do not own any infrastructure the chance to scale up their technologies and develop a highly-prized track record.
IBM and the Singapore Economic Development Board Launch the IBM Smarter Commerce Centre of Competency
Sep 7 15
IBM and the Singapore Economic Development Board have jointly announced the establishment of the IBM Smarter Commerce Centre of Competency (SCCOC), which aims to develop new products and solutions for running online shopping and customer engagement sites. Specifically, the SCCOC hopes to enhance the four key competencies of smart commerce: Buying, selling, marketing and servicing clients - using commerce solutions that leverage the cloud, data analytics, social media outreach and security platforms. Examples include software tools that help to plan the customer journey, and analytics that help determine how to accelerate the buying process within the journey, or remove customer doubts from the making the final purchase. Together, IBM and EDB will team up with industry associations such as the Singapore infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF) and the Marketing Institute of Singapore (MIS) to reach out to marketing professionals on how they can leverage technology. It is also currently in talks with local telecommunications firm StarHub as well as banking group OCBC. By end 2017, the SCCOC will employ over 30 Research Scientists and Engineers to oversee the development of products and solutions. They will be involved in defining analytics guidelines and solutions, developing advanced algorithms, data mining for platforms, testing and evaluation of programmatic models, and deploying the plan models. The SCCOC is expected to be fully operational by the end of the year and will be based in the IBM Singapore Technology Park (ISTP) at Tampines. The ISTP also houses the IBM Client Centre and the manufacturing facility for IBM's System z mainframes and high-end POWER systems.
