The distributor MCA Technology is the first to market Giesecke+Devrient’s authentication and access control offer in France. He is not only responsible for recruiting but also for certifying a network of local dealers on behalf of the German supplier.

Created almost two and a half years ago, the added value division of the wholesaler MCA Technology offers, in particular, a catalog in cybersecurity which is still limited but which is regularly expanding. It recently concluded a distribution agreement with Giesecke+Devrient (G+D) to market authentication and access control products under the StarSign brand of this German supplier on the French market. This encryption-based offer consists of USB Tokens (PKI), small boxes with an integrated fingerprint reader (FIDO), bracelets (PKI and FIDO) or even cards (PKI and FIDO). All these products can work with various authentication servers on the market, including the one developed by G+D, which MCA Technology will also offer.

A pool of 700 resellers to draw from

The agreement signed between the supplier and the distributor is more than a simple listing. Exclusive wholesaler of the brand in France, on the basis of a non-formal agreement, MCA Technology is in fact in charge of building up its network of local resellers but also of certifying it at the commercial level. With this in mind, he will work on the base of 700 resellers that his value-added division serves every year. Opportunities have already been identified among MCA customers , says Philippe Ortodoro, G+D’s commercial director for France and Spain. In addition, MCA Technology has trained its existing sales team and will have its pre-sales resources certified on G+D offerings.

Sign up with a big name in antivirus

Until now, the offer of the German supplier had no equivalent in the catalog of MCA Technology. Before joining this new partner, the added value division of the wholesaler already marketed solutions from Zyxel, Nakivo, ESET, and the French company SYLink. One of the objectives it is now pursuing is to conclude a distribution agreement with one of the big names in antivirus on the world market. Specialized sales people should also join its teams in the near future to support its development.

François-Xavier Leduc said following the January 2021 fundraiser:

“You have to go quickly to take a place, especially in the United States.”

Become the leading training data platform for AI solutions in the USA

The year 2021 was for Kili Technology a springboard for the international market. Its ambition is now to establish itself in the American market, where competition is the most important. For this, she announces the opening of its office in New York and the recruitment of Pike Reynolds, as vice-president sales North America to drive the commercial development of the company on the American market.

An experienced executive committee with strong international dominance

In January 2021, the Kili Technology team had 15 employees. The 2 fundraisers made it possible to increase this number to 50 currently and thus to consolidate the technological efficiency of the training data management platform, to refine the product offer in the face of market expectations and to accelerate the business development.

Nicolas graduated from Centrale-Supélec and holds an MBA from INSEAD.

Antoine de la Rivière accompanies Kili as head of sales. A graduate of HEC Montreal and Sciences Po Paris, Antoine first worked as a strategy consultant at Roland Berger. He then specialized in digital businesses, working at DoubleClick, Google’s digital marketing platform, and Facebook as Measurement lead and Global Client lead.

François Xavier Leduc is pleased:

A giant rocket, made of metal, reminiscent of Tintin’s universe, is placed at the entrance. Next to her has parked a real Formula 1 in the well-matched color.

Welcome to Canéjan, near Bordeaux, on the A63 motorway, in the very Californian extension of the head office of the Girondin group, an IT service provider.

?I was inspired by what I have seen for 10 years in Silicone Valley.

From the candidates’ point of view, all digital service companies (DSEs) are more or less alike. And recruiters in this very tense sector have all the trouble in the world to make their difference heard.

OCTO Technology, which expects 140 recruitments in 2018, knows a lot about this. In accordance with its baseline ? « There is a better way » -, this consulting firm in new technologies with some 400 employees (which fell into the fold of Accenture last year) has therefore recently questioned its practice of job interviews.

« Some candidates prefer to stay in their comfort zone with a classic interview, others want to challenge themselves and have fun. Whatever formula is chosen, none is discriminating. A last-minute turnaround is not blocking either, since it can just as easily lead to a full interview. »

Discussion support

« The drawing that the candidate must then present to us is only a discussion support, she continues. But that’s another way of presenting yourself, which requires you to be synthetic. In the same spirit, the cards allow the person we receive to formalize what is important to them, therefore to identify their motivation levers.. »

Once this step is completed, the process continues in the classic way: a peer interview for the validation of business skills, then a last with the manager responsible for assessing the potential ofintegration in L’team.

OCTO Technology uses drawing method for a year and claims to have positive feedback from candidates, who ” often take pictures of their achievement “. They also appreciate having a choice.

Géraldine Carbonne does not rule out the possibility of bias, but no more than in any interview with recruitment classic: “ It is a role play: the candidates are driven by a social desirability and this is quite normal. The important thing is that we are aware of our own biases, to be as objective as possible.. »

The company has also set up a training program the conduct of interviews intended for all employees, who will, moreover, soon be introduced to the diversity. The consulting company does not intend to stop there. Six months after setting up workshops for design thinking with employees on the candidate’s ideal path, the HR team, which has around ten members, is now working on HR innovation workshops to rethink all of the processes.

Less polluting racing cars

Julien Beltoise, son of former Formula 1 champion Jean-Pierre Beltoise, is convinced that motorsport at the highest level has reached a turning point, and must be a stakeholder in the energy transition by fully playing the card of electric motorization. “It’s more than a bet, it’s the meaning of the story” explains Julien Beltoise, recalling that today we are in a race against time to reduce CO2 emissions.“The battery-powered electric vehicle is the most concrete solution in the short and medium term” he said, before adding “There is no question, on the circuits, of putting on blinders and continuing to spend more than a kilo of CO2 per kilometer traveled”.

The Beltoise will have flexible autonomy

The Beltoise BT01 was created with the partnership of Spark Racing Technology, a company specializing in the development and engineering of high performance electric vehicles. The vehicle weighs 1,200 kilos for a power of nearly 400 horsepower. Its autonomy is flexible, the prototype can carry out tests and races lasting 25 minutes and be used for driving courses and other event activities on the circuit, with a total autonomy of more than three hours during the day.

New global survey from Rackspace Technology, in association with Google Cloud, highlights rapid pace of cloud adoption: more than half of companies surveyed have 100% of their infrastructure in the cloud

Rackspace Technology, a leading provider of end-to-end multi-cloud technology solutions, announced the results of a new global survey, conducted in association with Google Cloud, among more than 1,400 IT managers, Future of Compute, which highlights the increasingly rapid pace of cloud adoption.

According to the survey, the question is no longer whether companies should migrate to the cloud, but how they can leverage the cloud to innovate, be efficient and grow.

Over half (51%) of all companies responding to the survey said 100% of their applicable infrastructure now resides in the cloud, while 49% said they plan to transfer more. much of their workloads in the cloud. In addition, more than two-thirds of respondents’ IT workloads are now supported by public cloud, colocation, and managed hosting services. At the same time, the distribution of IT infrastructure has reached a balance, and executives expect it to hold steady over the next three to five years.

Highlighting the increasingly central role that technology plays in transforming operations, more than a third (35%) of respondents say IT leaders play a key role in driving the business forward, while silos between functional areas continue to dissolve.

Driven in large part by the power of the cloud, today’s technology landscape is changing at a breakneck pace, as IT permeates all areas of the organization.“, a dclar Jeff DeVerter, Chief Technology Evangelist chez Rackspace Technology. “In this environment, IT leaders have the power to help businesses and organizations look beyond the tip of their nose to solve their short and long term business challenges and provide them with critical guidance in areas of business growth. business, safety, efficiency and customer experience.”

Rapid Cloud Growth, Increased Use of Containerized Applications

The cloud market grew 23% to $ 323.3 billion last year, according to Gartner, which projects a future growth rate of 18% per year. As a result, most respondents say they are already enjoying the benefits of a public cloud (63%) and / or a private cloud (66%). Additionally, public cloud investments represent up to 40% of most IT budgets, with private clouds accounting for 30%.

Containerized applications also continue to gain in popularity, as companies move away from on-premises data centers. The most common tactic among companies (85%) that use the public cloud is still “lifting and shifting” using cloud-based VMs (virtual machines), but 84% of respondents say they invest in the public cloud with containers. 62% of respondents say their use of containerized apps will increase over the next two years.

Future directions of the cloud

The cloud revolution has brought about an influx of advances in the world of computing; however, the last decade of flooding is settling into a flatter pool of opportunity. Over the next 12 months, respondents expect their infrastructure spending to include on-premises data centers (55%), managed hosting (52%), public cloud (51%), and colocation (34 %). However, 60% of those surveyed also said they plan to not own a data center in the next five years.

Data security (53%), confidentiality (47%) and control (41%) naturally remain the top concerns for IT managers, especially for public cloud use cases. While these concerns pose valid barriers to more businesses reaping the full benefits of the cloud, the reality is that a disgraceful multicloud infrastructure is the norm. Businesses that focus their resources on solving data security and privacy issues while innovating with the cloud can hope to gain a significant competitive advantage.

What is the vision of virtualization, containers and serverless?

34% of IT managers are using serverless models, and 56% indicated that while they don’t yet, they plan to do so in the future. Among those who currently use serverless, the majority do so for virtual assistants and chatbots (52%), IoT applications (45%), and website and API autoscaling (44%).

56% of respondents indicated that while they may not run on serverless models yet, they plan to do so in the future. Only 10% of respondents said they did not intend to adopt serverless within their company.

A large majority (75%) of respondents who use serverless believe they are taking full advantage of the benefits of serverless computing models. For those who do not intend to use serverless models, many say it is because they are happy with their existing infrastructure (52%), but a significant part is held back by the lack of internal skills. needed to implement serverless with confidence (42%). As with any emerging technology, many IT managers are also reluctant to switch to serverless due to security concerns (38%) and a lack of buy-in from their management teams (34%).

Civilian applications developed in the 1990s, at the same time as the first professional experiences of Philippe Mondon, who recently graduated from an MBA and specialized in semiconductors. Technical Sales Engineer at Kontron Elektronic before moving to Toshiba semiconductor then to EM Microelectronics Marin, a subsidiary of the Swatch Group, he left the world of multinationals in 2001 for an SME, DPSA, of which he became Deputy Managing Director. Enough to nourish sufficient experience to start on your own.

This article is part of the section Stories of companies and entrepreneurs, written – in complete independence – thanks to the support of the CCI of Val-de-Marne. See all the articles published in this section.

«I have always wanted to create my own business to have the opportunity to develop my strategy, motivate Philippe Mondon. From the creation of AXEM Technology, I had clients and I was able to end the first year of operation with a turnover of almost one million euros. It is a microcosm where one is quickly spotted by the various actors and called upon when one gives satisfaction.»

In the early 2000s, the potential of RFID technology was not fully exploited and the market suffered. It is only with the explosion of big data that manufacturers understand that we can make these little ones talk. «tags» and get valuable information from it. RFID is of particular interest to logistics professionals, who are keen on tools that allow them to identify products quickly and with the least possible effort in order to save money. The medical, marketing, aeronautical or energy sectors also use this technology, which makes it possible to ensure the traceability of items of varying sizes, regardless of the processes to which they are subjected (resistance to water, to high heat, cold, falls).

International development

In 2011, AXEM Technology, too cramped in its historic premises in Sucy-en-Brie, decided to move with its 5 employees to the business area of ??Créteil, Europarc. Four years later, the team has grown considerably and now has 13 employees to support the international development of the company which has notably landed a train ticket market for an entire region of Florida, in the United States. .

«Sometimes we tend to put up barriers, complexes. When our reseller in the United States contacted us to offer to work on this project, I wondered what we could bring them. Then, I understood that we were offering them a know-how and an expertise that they had not found anywhere else.», remembers the entrepreneur.

Winner of several distinctions from Cecap 94, the business club of Plaine Centrale, and member of the entrepreneurial network in Val-de-Marne, Philippe Mondon insists on the weight of the network, noting that it is these privileged contacts that have enabled him in particular get in touch with financial partners.

From design to production

With more than 25 million products sold worldwide to their 500 customers and a turnover of around 3 million euros, Philippe Mondon now wishes to integrate an RFID Fablab into its structure with the means of Industry 4.0. and design tailor-made products. ?At present, there is a certain logic that dictates that RFID identifiers are mainly manufactured in Asia. There is know-how there to build large volumes of similar items in series. On the other hand, it has become economically relevant for companies such as ours to ensure the production of high added value products ourselves. Thanks to our privileged contacts with the design offices, we became aware of our know-how and realized that with our own equipment, we could develop high-performance in-house products. Until now, we were doing our prototyping at third-party companies, but we are going to acquire a small unit of machines and tools to make plastronics, a new discipline combining plastics and electronics making it possible to put intelligence into plastic components. Ultimately, if the series that we produce with our mini-production unit convince customers, within five years we will build a larger unit in Val-de-Marne.», announces the president of AXEM Technology, who after moving to the first floor of his Europarc building, will expand to the ground floor to install the mini-production unit.

It is a microcosm where one is quickly spotted by the various actors and called upon when one gives satisfaction.»

In the early 2000s, the potential of RFID technology was not fully exploited and the market suffered. It is only with the explosion of big data that manufacturers understand that we can make these little ones talk. «tags» and get valuable information from it. RFID is of particular interest to logistics professionals, who are keen on tools that allow them to identify products quickly and with the least possible effort in order to save money. The medical, marketing, aeronautical or energy sectors also use this technology, which makes it possible to ensure the traceability of items of varying sizes, regardless of the processes to which they are subjected (resistance to water, to high heat, cold, falls).

International development

In 2011, AXEM Technology, too cramped in its historic premises in Sucy-en-Brie, decided to move with its 5 employees to the business area of ??Créteil, Europarc. Four years later, the team has grown considerably and now has 13 employees to support the international development of the company which has notably landed a train ticket market for an entire region of Florida, in the United States. .

«Sometimes we tend to put up barriers, complexes. When our reseller in the United States contacted us to offer to work on this project, I wondered what we could bring them. Then, I understood that we were offering them a know-how and an expertise that they had not found anywhere else.», remembers the entrepreneur.

Winner of several distinctions from Cecap 94, the business club of Plaine Centrale, and member of the entrepreneurial network in Val-de-Marne, Philippe Mondon insists on the weight of the network, noting that it is these privileged contacts that have enabled him in particular get in touch with financial partners.

From design to production

With more than 25 million products sold worldwide to their 500 customers and a turnover of around 3 million euros, Philippe Mondon now wishes to integrate an RFID Fablab into its structure with the means of Industry 4.0. and design tailor-made products. ?At present, there is a certain logic that dictates that RFID identifiers are mainly manufactured in Asia. There is know-how there to build large volumes of similar items in series. On the other hand, it has become economically relevant for companies such as ours to ensure the production of high added value products ourselves. Thanks to our privileged contacts with the design offices, we became aware of our know-how and realized that with our own equipment, we could develop high-performance in-house products. Until now, we were doing our prototyping at third-party companies, but we are going to acquire a small unit of machines and tools to make plastronics, a new discipline combining plastics and electronics making it possible to put intelligence into plastic components. Ultimately, if the series that we produce with our mini-production unit convince customers, within five years we will build a larger unit in Val-de-Marne.», announces the president of AXEM Technology, who after moving to the first floor of his Europarc building, will expand to the ground floor to install the mini-production unit.

The Australian company Conflux Technology specializes in the production of 3D printed heat exchangers for the aerospace, automotive and defense sectors. It recently signed a partnership with the Italian manufacturer Dallara, which develops racing cars for Formula 3. Using metal additive manufacturing technology, and more particularly EOS powder bed fusion solutions, and its expertise in CAD design , Conflux Technology teams are able to imagine more efficient exchangers while reducing costs.

Heat exchangers are devices that transfer thermal energy from one fluid to another, all without mixing. They have separate networks to circulate the fluids in question at different temperatures. A wall divides these networks and it is the temperature difference between the fluids that allows this heat exchange. They are therefore essential devices in sectors such as the automobile and which require a certain resistance to heat. By relying on additive manufacturing to produce them, some companies can imagine more complex shapes while optimizing the quantity of materials used and therefore the overall cost.

Conflux Technology very quickly addressed the motorsport sector and developed expertise in metal additive manufacturing for heat exchangers. The company imagines tailor-made devices from the design phase to post-processing, taking into account the requirements of each manufacturer. Recently, it announced a new collaboration with Italian Dallara to manufacture metal heat exchangers for its racing cars. The main challenge was the size of these interchanges.

Michael Fuller, CEO and Founder of Conflux Technology, explains: ?Conflux heat exchangers derive their performance from very complex geometries which use the freedoms inherent in additive manufacturing. Dallara gave us an initial challenge: to produce small heat exchangers that meet strict targets in terms of performance, quality and cost. To achieve this, our engineers work alongside staff at Dallara with the ultimate goal of improving the fundamental efficiency of the automotive and motorsport industry..?

At the start of this project, Conflux Technology carried out several CAD and CFD simulations in order to obtain a very detailed overview of the performance characteristics of the exchanger. Several iterations were then carried out to validate the geometry, iterations tested to study the characteristics of the part such as surface roughness. The company divides this process into 4 key stages: design, simulation, analysis and rehearsal. A priori winning combination for Conflux Technology which could well move towards the mass production of 3D printed heat exchangers! You can find the official press release HERE.

Juniper Networks announced the acquisition of 128 Technology for $ 450 million, which will allow it to have more artificial intelligence-based features in its network product portfolio. The company specified that the purchase of the company 128 Technology would be made in cash and in repurchase of shares.

Juniper is strengthening its expertise and portfolio in AI through this acquisition, and this is not a first. In 2019, Juniper bought Mist Systems for $ 405 million. Since purchasing Mist, Juniper has also added AI networking tools to its portfolio.

The sale of 128 Technology is expected to close in Juniper’s fiscal fourth quarter. 128 Technology will be integrated into Juniper’s AI Driven Enterprise business unit. 128 Technology is 120 employees, more than 300 customers and approximately $ 120 million in annual revenues.

Optimizing the network using artificial intelligence

According to Juniper, the plan is to combine 128 Technology’s Session intelligent network with its portfolio of campus and branch products and its Mist AI platform. The two companies will aim to use AI to optimize the network and user experiences for voice, 5G and collaboration.

128 Technology’s technology platform bases networking decisions on real-time user sessions and business policies rather than static systems. Juniper will also integrate 128 Technology into its WAN Assurance software and plans to offer AIOps, anomaly detection, security and automated networks.

Last July, Juniper also announced improvements to its Juke multicloud container platform. As a reminder, Juniper acquired the multicloud container platform with the purchase of HTBASE at the end of 2019.

A strategic investment for the company, which claims that Juke’s multicloud storage capabilities complement the network orchestration and compute capabilities of its Contrail multicloud product.
