Hong Kong – 5 March 2018 – To foster the development of innovation and technology (I&T), it was mentioned in “The 2018-19 Budget” that the government would set aside HK$50 billion for supporting I&T development, and would earmark HK$500 million under the I&T fund to implement the Technology Talent Scheme, showing the great importance attached to I&T development and cultivation of innovative talents. JOS, which is a systems integrator, solutions provider and technology consultancy company, organised the 3rd JOS Innovation Awards, aiming to nurturing talents for the innovation industry and equipping tertiary students the essential skills needed in the industry. The final competition and awards presentation was held on 3rd March 2018, selecting the well-deserved awardees. The Finger Exercise Device for Early Stage of Osteoarthritis Patients designed by students of Hong Kong Polytechnic University crowned the champion.

JOS has organised various activities throughout the awards, providing professional advices from industry by organising the first-ever Marketho[1], workshops and providing tutorials, thus contributing to nurturing the talented persons for the innovation industry. The theme of the competition is “Happy Ageing – Innovation Healthcare Solution”. Focusing on these two areas, “Ageing population” and “healthcare”, student contestants utilised the use of “Internet of Things”, “Mobile Operation” and “Internet Solution” to develop an innovation technology, which could help taking care of the elderly and thus enhancing their quality of life.

After rounds of battles, nine out of forty-eight finalist teams from different tertiary institutions were shortlisted to enter the final competition. The works of the final teams were able to meet the practical needs of the elderly and their products were marketable. They presented their solutions in front of judges and the live audience at the final. Some of the teams brought along their prototypes or smart devices, such as “Sleeping Monitor” for demonstration on the spot.

As one of the judges of the Awards, Mr. Eric OR, Managing Director of JOS Hong Kong & Macau, commented that JOS welcomes the strategic boost from the HKSAR government which focuses on developing 4 of its areas of strength. “With the Awards, JOS aims to inspire, nurture and recognise students for their smart ideas and innovative thinking. Since 2015, the JOS Innovation Awards have inspired over 500 tertiary education students to put their innovative ideas into practice and solve real-world problems, to making our world a more efficient and better place to live.”, said Mr. OR.

“Through the competition, students generated a strong interest in innovation technology. They had a chance to observe the performances of other teams, and this provided them with a valuable learning experience. The organisational and articulation skills of competing teams were above par. Their excellent creativity and enthusiasm in innovation technology exemplified the endless research and development potential of Hong Kong new generation.” said Ms. Jenny PONG, judge of the Awards and Group Director of Human Resources of the JTH Group.

After an intense competition, the winning trophy was given to CHEUNG Ching Yee, CHAN Hiu Lam, FONG Tsz Ching and LIM JooMi from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Their winning project was “Finger Exercise Device for Early Stage of Osteoarthritis Patients”. The winning team was given a cash prize of HK$30,000, and was offered an internship by JOS and a visit to Singapore. The first runner-up was given to LEUNG Ka Ming, Jeremy, HO Yik Chung, Grayson, LEE Wing Yu, Michelle, NG Chak Lam, Rica and TSE Ho Yin, Thomas from University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and City University of Hong Kong and their winning project was “Algotritionist”.

The second runner-up was given to LAU Hoi Sing, FAN Po Chuen, CHAN Hoi Yat and TSANG Long Fung from Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education – Sha Tin, and their winning project was “Sleeping Monitor”.

The champion team “Finger Exercise Device for Early Stage of Osteoarthritis Patients” commented they were very honoured to have joined JOS Innovation Awards, and been recognised by the judges. “During the competition, we have improved our products and understood more about the needs of the elderly. We hope we can contribute to the society, and help the development of Hong Kong’s medical technology. ”

Many contestants expressed that JOS had provided them with an important platform to practice their concepts. They thanked the experts for providing them with comments and ideas, which enabled them to comprehend the needs of the elderly and the present situation in the consumer market. They looked forward to further improving their products, and to launching their products to the market for the benefits of the people in need.

“The Most Popular Innovation Award” was newly created this year and was voted by the audience. The winner of this Award was “Super Senior”. The Award encouraged young people to devote themselves to innovation technology; to provide them with practical learning; to develop their career and to give them opportunities to chase after their dreams.

[1] Similar to the concept of “Hackathon”, the innovative term “Markethon” is a combination of the two words “Marketing” and “Marathon”. Each competing team must, during an hour of Peer Presentation & Challenge, arrange to have half of their team members to be questioned by another team, and to send the rest of the team members to challenge members of another team with questions. During the process, JOS’ sales and marketing experts will also participate. The aim of the “Markethon” is to inspire students’ innovative ideas and problem-solving capabilities through challenging one another intensively within a short period of time.

經過一輪挑選和訓練,在總決賽上,九隊來自不同大專院校的決賽隊伍,從四十八隊入圍參賽者中脫穎而出,晉身總決賽。決賽隊伍的作品有效地切合長者的實際需要,及極具市場性。他們向評判和現場觀眾講解其方案,部分隊伍帶來自己研發的智能裝置或產品原型,例如睡眠監查器等作現場演示。

作為評審之一的JOS香港及澳門區董事總經理柯志成先生表示,JOS歡迎港府大力推動創科發展,並聚焦具有優勢的四大範疇。他指,「是次的比賽能有效地啟發、培養及表揚學生的出色意念,自2015年起首辦JOS Innovation Awards,我們已啟發了超過500個大專學生實踐創新意念,以協助解決社會實際面對的問題,一起締造更美好及更有效率的世界。」

物聯網助零售業建優勢

香港零售業正面對旅客人數下降的挑戰,加上人民幣貶值令港元強勢等因素,減低中國內地旅客的消費意欲,而在網上購物大行其道的環境下,進一步為傳統零售業的前景帶來巨大挑戰,預計實體零售商將於2017年集中以物聯網(IoT)建立優勢,應對市場變化。

物聯網技術其實早已應用於零售管理,例如部分商場設置了信標和零售感測器,藉此追蹤人流路線和訪客流量,以便設計出最佳的商場佈局,並盡量增加租金收益。此外,零售商也可透過物聯網技術,向特選顧客發送尊有的優惠券或限時優惠,藉此提升傳統實體零售店的價值,提高顧客的忠誠度。

隨著零售商應用物聯網的層面日漸擴大,消費者自然會關注相關公司究竟會如何存取他們的個人資料及確保資料安全。鑒於一直有不少有關物聯網設備安全漏洞的事故出現,精明的零售商必須及早為物聯網服務及流程做好安全保護措施,以保護所得資料。因物聯網等新資訊科技所產生的風險日新月異,儘管企業意識到潛在的有關網絡安全漏洞會對其商業運作及財政帶來極大的危機,但是所擁有的資源往往有限。當中,更只有少部份企業能夠為突如其來的惡意攻擊預先作好部署。根據領先訊息技術研究和諮詢公司高德納於2016年發表的十大網絡安全預測,到2020年,企業所經歷黑客成功攻擊的原因其中三分之一是由於其淺薄的IT資源未能充份保障企業。為了防範網絡安全事故於未然,企業實在有需要考慮將網絡安全管理工作外判予值得信任的供應商負責,及早制定一系列網絡安全措施,以至採用網絡保險解決方案,預防網絡威脅。

區塊鏈促進金融服務創新

踏入2017年,區塊鏈(Blockchain)預計將會成為炙手可熱的金融科技,較應用同類型技術的比特幣開展更廣闊的金融領域,推動業界帶來更多創新服務。

區塊鏈是一項嶄新並簡單的技術,用之追蹤貨幣的流向、驗證交易和驗證金融資產的所有權。區塊鏈本身是一種分散式的資料庫,由交易信息塊結合而成,而每一個區塊都載有詳細的交易信息,並形成塊鏈,成為區塊鏈數據庫的一部分。區塊鏈不但運作快速和高效,還備有安全設計。即使有黑客入侵,亦只會影響其中一塊,並不會破壞塊鏈。在新的一年,金融服務企業家應該仔細研究可以在區塊鏈上運作之服務,於市場推出創新的金融服務。

為推動本港金融科技發展,香港金融管理局於去年9月推出「金融科技監管沙盒」措施,為企業提供一個具有彈性監管的試驗環境,務求為香港金融業改革者帶來新機遇,以研發及推出嶄新金融科技服務。全球不同的商業重鎮均於市場將自己定位為金融科技領域先鋒而渴望分一杯羹。,因此2017年將會是香港在金融科技確立領導地位的重要一年。

結合擴增實境(AR)技術改革維修業

去年,應用結合擴增實境(AR) 技術的手機遊戲Pokémon GO於全球大受歡迎。隨著AR技術廣獲消費者採納,相信於2017年,相關技術亦逐步應用於工作層面。AR技術可以讓用家獲取顯示在實境的虛擬化資訊,潛力龐大,特別是在應用於維修及工程操作等行業。舉例來說,汽車維修人員可運用免提AR影像重疊技術,即時找出汽車的潛在問題,繼而進行適當維修。

除此之外,縱使顧客缺乏相關工程或行業知識,仍可以透過VR技術,了解產品的規格及機件問題。對客戶而言,可以加強他們對工業過程的控制和增加其透明度。對企業而言,運用AR技術能夠為客戶提供如此高透明度服務,則可加強客戶對品牌的信任和忠誠度。

各行各業要緊貼市場趨勢,善用新科技為其中關鍵,相信可為業務找到新的發展契機,並為市場帶來創新的產品及服務,於新一年踏上更光明大道。

JOS and JLT join forces to offer world-class cyber insurance solutions in Asia

First-of-its-kind partnership between a technology solutions provider and a top insurance broker to help customers tackle mounting threats to enterprise security

Malaysia – 7 December, 2016 – JOS, one of Asia’s leading providers of IT services and solutions, is partnering with Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT), leading suppliers of insurance, reinsurance and employee benefits-related advice, brokerage and associated services, to launch an innovative suite of cyber insurance and consultancy services as part of JOS’s comprehensive cyber security solutions.

JOS offers a range of cyber security technology and consulting services to ensure its customers stay one step ahead of cyber threats. JLT’s cyber insurance solutions help cover the insured party’s own costs and liabilities resulting from threats, damage or loss of information, as well as the use of systems or networks which are typically not protected under the majority of insurance on the market today.

The combination of JLT’s knowledge of cyber insurance and access to specialist markets with JOS’s suite of cyber security consultancy services is a unique partnership at the leading edge of the industry. This is the first time that a technology consultancy with the long heritage and far reach of JOS is working hand-in-hand with an insurance broker like JLT to offer comprehensive cyber insurance solutions to clients across Asia; via JLT’s hubs in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.

JOS Group Managing Director, Mark Lunt spoke of the significance of the partnership between JOS and JLT, saying: “We are proud to be at the helm of the next generation of cyber security solutions together with our partner JLT. Working together we are able to provide customers with the unique opportunity to access tailored cyber coverage from one of the world’s leading insurers. With technology underpinning the operations and performance of every international business, it is now more important than ever for market leaders such as JOS and JLT to form strategic partnerships that will enable customers to stay secure in the face of advanced and persistent cyber security risks.”

JOS Group Head of Cyber Security Services, Barnaby Grosvenor added: “Coupled with JLT’s industry leadership, JOS is well poised to help organisations assess, combat and manage a broad range of cyber risks. By capitalising on cutting-edge industry and proprietary tools, JOS is delivering integrated cyber security solutions for customers in Asia – from tailor-made assessments, to a menu of security essentials, to a comprehensive long-term suite of consultancy and services.”

JLT’s Managing Director, Financial Lines Group Asia, Ali Chaudhry went on to say: “At JLT, we have a strong focus on providing clients with specialty products. In the area of cyber security a deep understanding of product and exposure is key. New IT risks are developing rapidly for practically all of our clients, leading to the need for a proactive and innovative approach. In working together with JOS, we are excited to be able to offer our clients customised, end-to-end solutions that will help reduce and manage their cyber security costs and exposures. In parallel, we are also launching our Asian cyber risk analytics tool that will provide our clients with quantitative information on their risk profiles.”

Under the partnership, JOS becomes the flagship member of the JLT Cyber Consortium for Asia. JLT’s Cyber Consortium is a unique global community of leading companies and subject matter experts across the cyber ecosystem that continually collaborate on cyber risk best practices and thought leadership to support mutual clients around their strategic, operational, financial and human resource issues impacted by cyber risk.

JOS exchanges insights with the region’s top executives at industry’s foremost summit

Singapore – 3 October, 2016 – JOS, a Sliver Sponsor, demonstrated its thought leadership in the technology space by hosting a series of Enterprise Networking Table discussions at the Annual CIO Summit held on 29 September 2016 in Singapore. The industry’s foremost gathering of CIOs in Asia saw over 160 CIOs and senior IT executives from across different industries in Asia, offering industry practitioners an opportunity to keep abreast of the latest global trends, learn from the best practices and engage in discussions during dedicated networking sessions.

Technology heads across Asia had the opportunity to hear about the latest global trends, learn from ICT best practices and get involved in general discussions with counterparts and peers during the dedicated networking breaks. Spearheading a number of digital transformation projects for its enterprise clients in the region, JOS management team appreciated the chance to interact with the delegates, sharing thought-provoking and strategic insights on increasing revenue, improving productivity, enhancing customer experience and meeting compliances through digital transformation.

Mr. Freddy Lee, Managing Director of Southeast Asia, JOS hosted a series of Enterprise Networking Table (ENT) discussion, on the topic of Monetisation – New Revenue Stream. As a technology expert, Mr. Lee provided valuable insights on emerging technology trends, changing roles of CIOs as well as frameworks mapping strategic technology solutions to protect, increase and generate revenue for businesses. The sessions were well-received by the delegates who participated in many engaging and constructive conversations on the pressing challenges they face and possible ways of leveraging technologies to transform into growth opportunities.

On the key takeaways for the summit, Mr. Lee said, “It was a pleasure to meet with top IT executives from Asia’s leading companies. 85% of organisations have embarked on at least one digital transformation project, of which most are led by CIOs or CDOs. Many shared the need for existing IT departments and CIOs to now juggle functional, process enhancement and business growth priorities all at once. As I shared our experience working with customers on their digital journey, the message of taking practical steps, aligning stakeholder expectations, incorporating agility and building new KPIs resonated with all delegates I’ve met. We had good discussions sharing success stories, lessons learned and workable ideas for IT executives looking to create a path towards significantly growing value in their organisations.”

Lee continued, “While the topic of digital transformation is pervasive in organisations these days, it is as much about change management as it is a technology application project. Therefore, JOS believes in understanding each customer’s unique circumstances and challenges, both technologically and otherwise, in order to provide carefully tailor-made solutions to achieve their business goals together.”
