合和、JOS及Microsoft香港引領先進科技減輕香港空氣污染問題

亞洲首座「城市樹木」採用物聯網收集重要環境數據作研究

香港 — 2016年7月8日 — 合和物業代理有限公司、JOS及Microsoft香港於香港灣仔合和中心外設置亞洲首座「城市樹木」(CityTree) 。透過此次合作,各公司充分展示智能和可持續發展的城市方案。該已獲專利的高科技綠化裝置藉著減少路邊污染及提高大眾的環保意識,為香港社區帶來裨益。

亞洲首座「城市樹木」是合和、JOS、研發該智能空氣淨化裝置及參加了2015年之Infiniti Accelerator (英菲尼迪創業加速項目)的德國企業Green City Solutions,以及Microsoft香港的合作成果,JOS負責該項目的組裝及技術整合,採用了Microsoft Azure IoT套件支援「城市樹木」的運作。

高三米的「城市樹木」是亞洲首個糅合物聯網和生物科技的空氣淨化裝置,採用了特別的苔蘚和維管植物,可吸收及過濾微細灰塵、氮氧化物(NOx)及其他空氣污染物,從而減輕四周的空氣污染問題。

JOS集團董事總經理麥郎特先生讚揚此項開創先河的裝置和合作關係,並道:「我們很高興能與合和、英菲尼迪及Microsoft攜手引入由Green City Solutions研發的香港首座『城市樹木』。這個高科技裝置體現合和的環保願景及Microsoft物聯網技術的力量。JOS很榮幸能將尖端的技術帶到亞洲,惠澤社群,且一直致力協助不同機構建立物聯網技術的清晰發展計劃,並通過善用物聯網技術受益。『城市樹木』便是物聯網助創新科技改善都市環境的優秀案例。」

室外空氣污染每年導致330萬人早逝1,而世界衛生組織估計至2050年,此數字將升至660萬人2。儘管空氣污染問題日益嚴重3,物聯網為科學家和社會領袖提供全新途徑以了解空氣污染源頭、擴散模式,以及如何能夠減低空氣污染對人體健康造成的影響。JOS一直是深受亞洲商業機構和政府機構信賴的合作夥伴,公司不斷增強對物聯網的投資及相關技術實力,並與Green City Solutions等創新企業建立夥伴關係,展示不同機構可透過互相連接的感應器發掘資訊,讓大眾和城市受惠。

合和資產管理有限公司董事梁庇世先生補充:「我們很榮幸於合和中心引入亞洲首座『城市樹木』。環境保護和綠色思維應成為推動科技、建築、工程,以至視覺藝術等不同生活領域發展的力量。『城市樹木』充分體現這類計劃如何為大眾、城市和環境帶來裨益。作為一個負責任的企業,合和相信可持續發展的重要性。我們在發展項目中使用環保設計,在物業中加入環保建築特色,鼓勵環保辦公室文化及物業管理。透過『城市樹木』和JOS於物聯網專長的協助,我們可望進一步改善灣仔的環境,提高香港都市的生活質素。」

Green City Solutions聯合創辦人兼行政總裁 Dénes Honus 說:「我們很感謝合和的全力支持,並很高興能成為JOS的夥伴,引入香港首座『城市樹木』。憑藉JOS的物聯網技術實力,『城市樹木』運作只需極少保養,讓我們可以持續收集空氣污染的重要數據並研究有效的解決策略。我們參加英菲尼迪創業加速項目後,英菲尼迪和合和便引入亞洲首個智能植物過濾裝置。這些計劃引領本公司到另一層次,而與JOS緊密合作讓我們在亞洲市場更為人熟悉。」

Microsoft香港有限公司總經理鄒作基先生表示:「Microsoft CityNext是我們的全球計劃,旨在提升城市的可持續性與經濟發展競爭力。Microsoft香港很榮幸能夠參與『城市樹木』項目並為香港市民帶來更清新及更綠化的環境。『城市樹木』是一個出色的計劃,它不但可協助淨化空氣,更是一個物聯網項目來收集重要的環境數據作減少污染研究之用。憑藉建基於靈活及可擴充的Microsoft Azure雲端平台服務的優勢,『城市樹木』展示了創新科技如何有效改善城市環境及為其市民帶來更安全及健康的生活。」

逾半個世紀以來,JOS在亞洲不斷轉變的科技領域中一直處於領先位置,擅於運用現今最佳科技直達問題核心並解決複雜問題。JOS提供來自市場頂尖供應商的一系列企業科技,再加上服務和技術諮詢支援,為每位客戶提供專屬設計的解決方案。雖然物聯網技術已經到位,但不少機構仍未開始發掘物聯網可帶來的競爭優勢。JOS能向機構展示如何就實際應用物聯網建立清晰目標,並從中獲益。

Hopewell, JOS and Microsoft Hong Kong lead technology’s charge in alleviating Hong Kong air pollution

Asia’s first CityTree makes use of IoT for environmental research

Hong Kong – 8 July, 2016 – Hopewell Real Estate Agency Limited, JOS and Microsoft Hong Kong have installed Asia’s first CityTree located outside Hopewell Centre in Wan Chai, Hong Kong. Working together, the companies are showing the way with smart and sustainable urban solutions. The patented high-tech green installation will benefit the Hong Kong community with reduced roadside pollution and heightened environmental awareness.

The debut of CityTree in Asia comes as a result of JOS’s partnership with Hopewell Real Estate Agency, Green City Solutions, the German-based company who created this smart air purifying solution and participated in the Infiniti Accelerator program in 2015, and Microsoft Hong Kong. JOS installed and integrated CityTree using Microsoft’s Azure Internet of Things (IoT) Suite.

Standing three metres high, the CityTree unit is a pioneering air-purification system combining Internet of Things and biotechnology first installed in Asia. The unit’s special moss culture and vascular plants absorb and filter fine dust, nitrogen oxides and other air pollutants to alleviate surrounding air pollution.

With the aim of helping Hong Kong alleviate air pollution, CityTree will capture environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity and particulate matter to keep the public informed of the latest pollution levels in the immediate surrounding area. Utilising Microsoft’s Azure Internet of Things (IoT) Suite, data collected by the sensors will be transmitted securely and telemetrically to the Azure IoT Hub. The data will then be recorded, processed and analysed by the Azure IoT Suite for air pollution reduction research purposes.

JOS deployed the total concept end to end – from managing the manufacturing, to internal construction design, structural safety designed by Jardine Engineering Corporation and software design and development – integrating various IoT modules and sensors which provide feedback to the moss.

The “German-design, made-in-Hong-Kong” CityTree was built with solar panels and digital systems that reduce the need for regular maintenance. Inside the unit are a number of sensors that enable CityTree to monitor the moisture levels of its purifying moss and report on air quality in real time. Similar units have already been installed in numerous European cities, including Paris, Berlin, Munich, Dresden and Oslo, and they have been positively received.

JOS Group Managing Director, Mr Mark Lunt praised the pioneering installation and partnership, saying: “We are excited to join forces with Hopewell, Infiniti and Microsoft to deploy Hong Kong’s first CityTree by Green City Solutions. This cutting-edge installation is a testament to Hopewell’s green vision and the power of IoT technology by Microsoft, and JOS is proud to be bringing emerging technology to benefit people across Asia. CityTree is an excellent example of how the Internet of Things is supporting creative innovation to improve our urban spaces. Our goal is to help organisations develop a clear vision for the practical use of, and the benefits to be gained from, the Internet of Things.”

Outdoor air pollution contributes to 3.3 million premature deaths every year1, and the World Health Organisation estimates that figure could reach 6.6 million by 20502. Although air pollution is getting worse3, the Internet of Things is opening up new opportunities for scientists and city leaders to understand where air pollution comes from, how it disperses and how to reduce its adverse impact on human health. JOS, a trusted partner to Asia’s businesses and governments, has strengthened its IoT investments and capabilities – embarking on new partnerships with innovators like Green City Solutions in order to show organisations how to uncover intelligence through connected sensors, to the benefit of people and cities.

Director of Hopewell Asset Management Limited, Mr Bruce Leung added: “We are proud to introduce Asia’s very first CityTree at Hopewell Centre in Hong Kong. Environmental protection and green thinking should drive every part of life – from technology, to architecture, to engineering, to visual arts. CityTree perfectly embodies this sort of harmonious project that’s good for people, cities and the environment. As a committed corporate citizen, Hopewell believes in sustainable development. We apply eco-friendly design in our developments, incorporate green building features into our properties, and encourage green office practices and property management. With CityTree and the IoT expertise of JOS, we look forward to further enhancing the environment of Wan Chai and driving a better quality of life for urban communities in Hong Kong.”

Green City Solutions’ co-founder and CEO Mr Dénes Honus said: “Thanks for the full support of Hopewell and we are delighted to partner with JOS on the first CityTree in Hong Kong. With JOS’s IoT capabilities, CityTree can do its job with very little maintenance and we can continue to collect essential data on air pollution and develop effective strategies to fight it. The launch of Asia’s first smart plant filter for Infiniti and Hopewell Centre follows our participation in the Infiniti Accelerator. These projects have taken our company to the next level, and working with JOS has enabled us to gain more exposure to the Asian market.”

General Manager of Microsoft Hong Kong, Mr Horace Chow said: “Microsoft CityNext is our global initiative that empowers cities to be more sustainable and economically competitive. Microsoft Hong Kong is proud to be part of the CityTree project that aims to provide the people of Hong Kong with a cleaner and greener environment. CityTree is a remarkable project. It not only cleans the air around us, but it is also an IoT (Internet of Things) project to collect important environmental data for analytics and pollution reduction research purposes. By taking advantage of our cloud-based services built on the flexible and scalable Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform, CityTree demonstrates how innovative technology can improve our urban environment and help citizens lead safer and healthier lives.”

With more than half a century at the forefront of Asia’s dynamic technology sector, JOS is well-versed in using the best available technology to get to the heart of a challenge and solve complex problems. JOS offers a broad selection of enterprise technology from market-leading vendors, underpinned by service and consultancy, to deliver a tailored solution to every customer. Although the technology behind the Internet of Things is now in place, many organisations have yet to take their first steps in uncovering how IoT can deliver competitive advantage. JOS can show an organisation how to develop a clear vision for the practical use of the Internet of Things and what benefits can be gained.

Hong Kong – 23 March, 2016 — JOS, one of Asia’s leading systems integrators, solutions providers and technology consultancies, demonstrates its enhanced capabilities as a key player in big data and enterprise solutions, rolling out its partnership with Tableau, a global leader in rapid-fire business analytics software, to customers across the region. Through this partnership, JOS is leveraging innovative, emerging technology to offer tailor-made solutions that tap into the huge potential of big data in Asia.

In 2011, McKinsey[1]predicted big data would boost productivity by making information far more transparent and usable, potentially saving governments billions of dollars and significantly improving business margins – so long as the right talent, technology and workflow structures were put in place. Today, Asia Pacific economies are smarter, better connected and more innovative than ever, with organisations seeking to evolve their technology infrastructure and unlock the potential of big data. To become a trusted partner for the region’s businesses and governments, JOS has strengthened its big data capabilities with the appointment of industry renowned experts, investments in new solutions and cutting edge technology partners, such as market leader Tableau, to bring customers complete end-to-end solutions that deliver tangible business results.

At a joint technology showcase – #Big Data Rocks Hong Kong – held today, JOS and Tableau demonstrated how easy-to-use, rapid-fire visual analytics can benefit decision-makers in businesses and governments locally. Using Hong Kong housing market and consumer index data, the demonstration showcased the speed and ease with which Tableau’s approach to visual analytics delivers crucial insights quickly, enabling business leaders to make better informed, evidence-based decisions.

As partners, JOS and Tableau leverage one another’s strengths to the benefit of customers in Asia. JOS is a leading provider of integrated IT solutions with more than 60 years’ service excellence and success in Asia, while Tableau is entering its fourth year as a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader, recognised for its versatility, diverse range of data source connectivity, customer enablement, interactive visualisation and exploration capabilities. With this combined excellence, JOS’s customers can not only access best in class analytics software but also a holistic, easy-to-use business intelligence solution.

JOS Group Managing Director Mark Lunt praised the joint capabilities of Tableau and JOS, saying: “JOS’s partnership with Tableau reinforces our pledge to bring emerging technology to customers and our vision to be the most trusted partner to businesses and governments across Asia. Building on Tableau’s position as global leader in data analytics, JOS is taking a strong role in delivering innovative big data solutions across sectors. The growing use of data to generate value by Asian companies implies a huge potential demand for better data analytics tools and solutions to create greater value from big data. As we continue to deepen our partnership with Tableau, we look forward to further exploring the implications of big data in the Asian market.”

Tableau Asia Pacific Senior Vice President JY Pook, said: “Tableau is on a mission to help more people see and understand their data. We found that businesses which encouraged employees to use data at work outperformed their peers by a performance level of two-to-one. And nowhere else do we see this need for innovation and productivity more clearly than in highly competitive markets like Hong Kong. Through our partnership with JOS, we will reach, engage and empower even more enterprises to fully realise the tremendous business value from their data.”

With more than half a century at the forefront of Asia’s dynamic technology sector, JOS offers a broad selection of enterprise technology from market-leading vendors, underpinned by service and consultancy, to deliver a tailored solution to every customer. Tableau’s visual analytics applications are integral to JOS’s big data solution portfolio, which includes large-scale data storage and processing on the Hadoop platform, API set-up for access to data outside the organisation, ETL to extract, transform and store data, and algorithm development for predictive analytics.

Smart city (transportation and utilities – water, gas, electricity) – enhance the safety and experience of transport passengers or better manage the use of resources

Smart retail – improve customer experience or staff productivity

Construction technology – keep construction workers safer or help them work more efficiently

Ms. Jenny Pong, Group Director for Human Resources at JOS’s Group function, JTH Group, said: “As part of JOS’s talent acquisition strategy, the Innovative IT Project Awards attests that there is no shortage of young talent in Hong Kong. Technology can be a powerful, positive force in business and wider society. For Hong Kong to retain its competitive edge, it’s vital that we are able to equip our young people with the skills and experience required to reinforce Hong Kong’s position as the technology hub for Asia. That experience should also include a practical understanding of how technology can tackle genuine business problems. We believe that JOS’s Innovative IT Project Awards have helped inspire students in IT innovations and realisation. Following our inaugural success in Hong Kong, the awards programme will also be rolled out to other Asia regions where JOS operates.”

JOS推出一系列移动信息化解决方案 迎合中国 “互联网+” 发展新趋势

移动信息化建设是企业提升竞争力的关键

2015年9月15日,北京——今日,亚洲地区主要的系统集成商、解决方案提供商和信息技术专家JOS(怡和科技)宣布推出一系列移动信息化解决方案以协助中国企业提升市场竞争力。JOS的移动信息化解决方案包括:移动信息化咨询、移动信息化应用、企业移动管理和基础设施服务等,是JOS致力于为亚太地区的企业提供最领先技术的最好体现。该解决方案将移动设备和其他智能设备无缝整合到企业的信息技术系统,确保了信息及时安全的传递,优化了决策流程并大幅提升了企业的运营效率。
