Tata Technologies eMO EV Design Chief to Moderate Global Micro-Cars Interior Panel at Wards Auto Interiors Conference

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) May 17, 2012

Tata Technologies, a leading global provider of engineering services and product development IT, announced that Peter Davis, Chief Designer Vehicle Design will moderate a panel discussion titled Global Micro-Cars Interiors at the 2012 Wards Auto Interiors Conference on May 17, in Dearborn, Mich. Davis is the Chief Designer on the Tata Technologies electric MObility (eMO) engineering study EV, which made its world debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, and which was again on display at the SAE 2012 World Congress in Detroit last month.

Davis panel will take a detailed look at the challenges and possibilities of the micro-cars that are changing the world. Small is in, according to global automotive design trends; and panelists will share the latest ideas on where interior development is heading in these crucial vehicles. Davis will bring his personal insights from the eMO EV study to the discussion.

Designing micro-car interiors is a creative challenge, and demands a holistic from the interior-out mind-set, especially in North America, Davis says. What you dont do, is simply shrink a big car down. You have to preserve the interior space and find clever ways of making it even larger and easier to use. You need to push the green house architecture, and minimize the interior furniture, like we did on the eMO EV study.

We met that challenge, preserving a comfortable package for four adults, yet reducing the exterior size to a minimum. A high seating position, great visibility, a sensation of generous space, and easy ingress and egress were integrated into the vehicle architecture. Todays customers are used to great materials and finishes, and will expect richer interiors in these micro-cars. Micro doesnt mean cheap anymore, he added.

Panelists scheduled to participate on the Global Micro-Cars Interiors panel include Jay Hutchins, Director of Marketing and Product Planning Faurecia Interior Systems; Katherine Sirvio, Senior Design Manager Global Chevrolet Color and Trim, Chevy Spark; and Tim Yerdon, Global Director Innovation and Design Visteon.

The Wards Auto Interiors Conference is an annual gathering of leaders in the automotive industry, focusing upon automotive interiors engineering and design. The conference includes the Wards 10 Best Interiors awards; and scholarship awards to students from Detroits College for Creative Studies. Throughout the day, panel sessions will be presented providing the latest from industry experts on topics including environmentally friendly materials, connectivity, consumer needs, auto interiors and safety.

As a ground-up EV study, eMO also incorporates design advantages over an internal combustion engine vehicle like smoother aerodynamic surfaces and shorter overhangs. eMO benefits from a low carbon footprint and a recyclability strategy. The eMO business case sets the MSRP at the disruptive price point of $ 20,000, before federal tax incentives or rebates. To learn more about eMO and Tata Technologies visit

Cutting-Edge NoSQL for the London Olympics Presented by John ODonovan at the NoSQL Now! Conference & Expo

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012

DATAVERSITY today announced that John ODonovan, Director, Technical Architecture and Development at the UKs Press Association (a leading content and media services provider) and one of the worlds foremost media technology designers, will give a keynote presentation to this years NoSQL Now! Conference & Expo at the San Jose Convention Center August 21 23.

On August 23rd from 9:10 9:45 AM, ODonovan will discuss the advanced methods used to build the next generation of content delivery platforms for the London Olympics. During his session ODonovan will share on how his team did – just weeks after the Olympic experience – using a combination of NoSQL technologies including graph databases, XML, RDF and linked data, to deliver new media capabilities on the world’s biggest stage.

ODonovan was formerly the Chief Technical Architect of BBC News and Sport delivering the acclaimed BBC World Cup website in 2010 which pioneered approaches to NoSQL technology including utilizing semantic and linked data, but the architectural approach has been taken much further into the core of the business by the Press Association, especially for key elements of the Olympics this year and many of their other services. PA is the appointed Host National News Agency for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

PAs coverage of the Olympics will be global and pervasive as it provides content and drives real-time data services for many clients and global brands including MSN, Sky TV, ESPN, Bing, LOCOG, NRK Norway, The Daily Mail, The Times, The Telegraph, British Telecom and many others

For many, we are the Olympics – the text, pictures, video and data we publish will be a window onto the Games. This is not just about driving a single service, this is about driving flexible and relevant services for many clients across all types of digital, broadcast and print media. said ODonovan.

We are delivering a global service of complex products to over 40 territories in 23 different languages, all working together in real-time – and the technologies deployed make it easier for us to receive and create the content, manage it, distribute it and customize it. We can also perform more advanced services to analyze and organize content and deliver a highly individualized consumer experience he added.

Preparing ourselves for the scale and real-time needs of the Olympics is an unprecedented technical undertaking said ODonovan, but we have faith in these technologies because relational technologies struggle to get us where we need to be, so we have blended a variety of NoSQL products to get the scale, performance and customized experience we needed to deliver.

NoSQL technologies are being used effectively to deliver large-scale solutions in a wide variety of applications. During the NoSQL Now! Conference attendees will learn from real-world examples and case studies from industry leaders in e-commerce, education, broadcast media, search, advertising, gaming, healthcare and online services. ODonovans keynote is a prime example of the innovative NoSQL technologies being used for the Olympics as well as in companies who have found NoSQL in enterprise business solutions.

NoSQL Now! will include the following case studies of NoSQL databases in the Enterprise space:

MoreVisibilitys EVP Danielle Leitch a Featured Speaker at the 2012 Annual Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition

Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) July 06, 2012

MoreVisibility, a six-time Inc. 500/5000 recipient and one of the worlds most experienced search engine marketing and optimization (SEM/SEO) agencies, reaffirmed its priority to educate businesses on the importance of SEO when Danielle Leitch, More Visibilitys EVP, spoke at the 2012 Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition in Chicago.

During the conference, Leitch spoke about SEO best practices in an interactive session focused on live website critiques. She reviewed websites volunteered for critique by conference attendees. During each review, Leitch offered constructive criticism and shared some SEO best practices also known as white hat practices and illustrated how companies can implement best practices while keeping an eye on usability.

But creating a website thats optimized for both search engines and users continues to be a big challenge for e-retailers.

Striking a balance between SEO and usability is so important, Leitch explains. Many businesses struggle with ensuring their sites are SEO optimized and user friendly its a problem we work with clients on all the time.

Leitch wasnt surprised to find that a variety of sites both large retail sites and small mom-and-pop sites had the same problems. Common errors included a lack of content, duplicate content, improper keyword targeting, technical and architectural issues, and overall site usability challenges.

No matter who you are, or what you sell, she says, the basics of SEO are always the same.

And in an ever-changing landscape, theyre more important than ever.

Because of seismic changes in the nature of search most notably Google’s Penguin update its more important than ever that marketers understand and implement white hat practices. This is why were so committed to making ourselves available to the online community and have been for many years.

Because, Leitch says, If you understand and implement best practices, these types of changes wont impact you.
