Best Practices Award goes to...

Alcatel-Lucent for Customer Value Leadership , Visual Collaboration Award presented by Frost & Sullivan (Europe) Alcatel-Lucent has been selected for the Frost & Sullivan 2013 European Customer Value Leadership award for Visual Collaboration. The award recognizes leadership in extending visual collaboration to the SMB market and equipping large enterprises with more affordable solutions designed to maximize the value added to the customer. The Customer Value Leadership Award distinguishes a vendor in a fiercely competitive space. Frost & Sullivan studied Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s complete Visual Communications portfolio and identified the following key success factors:

  • Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch provides flexibility at an affordable cost: The software-based multi-device, multimedia, multiparty OpenTouch enables simple and affordable productivity via video communications that is as easy as a phone call. This is critical for in-office and remote workers where mobility ranks among the most important features.
  • Best-of-breed endpoints: Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch allows for a seamless transition from phone or instant messaging conversations to a full video conference, avoiding any interruptions. OpenTouch delivers video at the desktop through software clients on PC, video enabled desktop smartphones (OmniTouch 8082 My IC Phone) and interoperability with the LifeSize portfolio. What’s more, the visual conversation is available “live” on any device but can also be replayed and displayed on digital signage equipment for further collaboration.
  • OpenTouch Video Store: OpenTouch Video Store allows customers to drive business and productivity for their company through the securing and sharing of multimedia content.
  • Extends productivity gains through partnerships: Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has built strategic partnerships to enrich their cost-effective and innovative visual collaboration solutions with an extended ecosystem offering solutions such as interactive white boards and digital signage.
  • Frost & Sullivan will recognize companies, strategies, processes, and executives that have achieved world-class performance within their industries at the Excellence in Best Practices Awards.

    “Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s Visual Collaboration Suite has been developed with the central objective of maximizing customer value. It lowers the barriers of adoption for customers that have previously found the cost of systems prohibitively expensive, and provides practical solutions to overcome some of the most important challenges in the visual collaboration market.” – Frost & Sullivan, 2013 -

    Kaspersky Internet Security on top in ‘Real-World’ Protection test

    Kaspersky Lab’s flagship security solution for home users, Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, was recognized as the best of the products compared in the Whole Product Dynamic “Real-World” Protection Test conducted by AV-Comparatives, an independent research lab, from August to November 2013. The lab’s experts analyzed how effectively popular security products protect against real-world threats faced by home users.

    The testing procedure allowed security solutions to use any techniques to prevent the test computer’s infection with malware – from blocking malicious links clicked by the user to detecting and removing malware already present on the device. However, security solutions had to operate with minimal input from PC users. This is because users are sometimes not sure what to do with suspicious programs detected by security solutions and might make poor decisions.

    AV-Comparatives experts tested a total of 22 security solutions from different vendors. Each product was subjected to 1,821 test cases. Kaspersky Internet Security successfully blocked 1,820 threats, demonstrating 99.9% effectiveness over the four-month testing series – the best result among all products tested. The Kaspersky Lab product prevented the systems from being infected in all cases, only prompting the user to make a decision in one instance.

    Several hundred legitimate sites and apps were also used during testing to check whether the products generated false positives. If the security solutions blocked one of these sites or files from opening, they received a penalty. Kaspersky Internet Security was one of just five products that did not generate a single false positive.

    The outstanding results produced by Kaspersky Internet Security earned the product an Advanced+ rating from AV-Comparatives.

    “For ordinary users it’s not that important at exactly which stage a security solution manages to block malware – the main thing is that it prevents their computers from being infected. Because the testing by AV-Comparatives assesses a product’s combined capabilities, the results present home users with a much more practical evaluation than other tests that only assess individual security components,” commented Oleg Ishanov, Director Anti-Malware Research, Kaspersky Lab.

    Testing was carried out on a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 with all the updates that were available as of August 2013. The latest versions of popular applications such as Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Apple QuickTime, Mozilla Firefox, and Oracle Java were also installed on the test computers.

    Testing was conducted by AV-Comparatives in conjunction with specialists from the University of Innsbruck. More information about the Whole Product Dynamic “Real-World” Protection Test is available on the test lab’s site.


    Micros selected as the most complete hotel software

    Market Research - AHGZ has singled out the nine best hospitality industry suppliers for 2013. For the first time, there are certificates for the winners in the individual categories.

    The best hospitality industry suppliers for 2013 were selected by the hospitality industry customers and also AHGZ readers. “Allgemeine Hotel und Gastronomie Zeitung” (the newspaper General Hotel and Gastronomy) awarded its best brand certificates for the third time. In 2013, the focus was on: Bread and bakery items, convenience, ice cream, hotel bath/WC, hotel software, coffee, coffee machines, dish washing equipment and tea.

    The market research company Business Target Group (BTG), commissioned by AHGZ, surveyed people in the gastronomy and hotel business on the services of the suppliers in these nine industries. Here it was a question of the categories quality, product performance, image and service performance. Winners were selected in the individual categories for the first time.

    Micros is the overall winner for hotel software. The AHGZ study was carried out on a random sample. In the period from May to August 2013, the market researchers of BTG surveyed at least 400 representatives from the gastronomy and/or hotel industries depending on the product group. Computer-supported phone interviews were conducted with the users or people familiar with the respective products and suppliers. They were exclusively owners, managers or head buyers.
