Changing the World

Red Herring 100 ASIA 2007では刺激的且つ、非常に中身の濃い3日間を過ごしました。

アジア各国の起業家と親交を深めることもできましたし、2007年度世界長者番付9位、東アジア一の富豪 李嘉誠(Li Ka-shing)の息子で香港最大の通信会社PCCW(パシフィック・センチュリー・サイバー・ワークス)を率いる李沢楷(Richard Li)、SybaseのJohn Chen他、世界中から参加している豪華スピーカー陣から示唆に富む話を聞くことができました。

テクノロジー世界の最先端をいく人たちが集結してのパネルディスカッションも非常に勉強になりました。
そして、MLOSも少なからずMOという会社をカンファレンスを通して参加者の方々にアピールしてきたつもりです。

カンファレンスの模様を写真でお届けします。

India and China are important markets, but when it comes to investing, they’re last year’s news. Where are smart investors going to find new deals and valuations that are more realistic? Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia are just a few of the promising areas that adventurous VCs (and entrepreneurs) are seeking out. This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities of startups in less familiar places.

The persistent stereotype about Asia is that companies imitate rather than innovate. While Japan did much to dispel this inaccurate label in the last decade, the perception has returned with outsourcing and the new wave of Internet sites in Asia that often seem to be imitations of those in the West. This panel will address the issue of innovation vs. imitation by focusing on areas where real creativity and smart engineering are making a difference in Asia.

While China still waits for a government decision on third generation mobile technologies and India is still introducing mobile to many remote areas, promising advanced technologies have been deployed in other parts of Asia. Mobile operators in Japan, Korea and Hong Kong have introduced exciting new technologies that enable new forms of transactions, video streaming, and live TV. What are the lessons for the rest of Asia from the successes and failures in counties with more advanced mobile technologies?

Alex Hung, Managing Director, Crossover International

Every 20 years or so, the IT industry undergoes a fundamental shift. From mainframes to minicomputers to PCs, each trend has left losers behind and created new winners. The latest trend is clear: mobile devices and web-based applications. What are the implications for countries who have built prosperity on low-cost manufacturing and generic software development? Can a China or India make a leap to a higher place on the food chain? Who will benefit and who will suffer?

16:00 – 16:15 Coffee and Networking Break

Asia has always followed its own path in regard to communications. Some countries like Korea and Japan have wide use of broadband; others like India and China are still rolling out Internet access to remote areas.In many parts of Asia, the first access to the Internet has come via the mobile phone. Now come a wave of new media: IPTV, online games and advertising to complicate the equation. This panel looks at new media developments in Asia and how they may affect the old media players and those who are just a step ahead.

Red Herring 100 Alumni Reunion
Kok Fung Lai, Chief Executive Officer, BuzzCity
Anuradha Acharya, Chief Software Architect & CEO, Ocimum Biosolutions
Jason Chiu, Chief Executive Officer, Cherrypicks
Ian Chin, President & COO, Wealink.com

What happens to a company after it makes the Red Herring 100 list? At this panel, some past winners will share their experience on the impact of the award, how they coped with heightened public scrutiny, and the paths they have taken since they were recognized with the Red Herring 100 award.

Software as a Service: The Asian Perspective
(M) Scott Martin, Journalist, Red Herring
Dennis Rose, Vice President, Citrix Systems
Robert Lee, President & CEO, Achievo
Russ Mann, Chief Executive Officer, SEMDirector
Lui Sim Hua, VP of Asia Pacific & Middle East, Aspect Software
James Gagnard, President & CEO, SmartSignal
Doug Farber, Vice President of Operations Asia Pacific, Salesforce.com

The emergence of software as a service is transforming the information industry as new players (Salesforce.com, Google) emerge and the incumbents (Microsoft, Symantec) scramble to adjust to the new paradigm. But Saas has additional implications in Asia beyond being a delivery mechanism. Many companies that once shunned the Asian market out of concern about piracy see delivery of services over the Web as a safe way to get their products to customers in a vast new market. At the same time, Asian companies that once worried about distribution costs now have potential access to millions of new customers. Who will benefit -- and who will be challenged-- in Asia from this fundamental shift in the delivery of information and services.

We see Web 3.0 as the personal Web; sites, applications, widgets, and personalization that make each user’s experience his or her own.
