GALA 2010 Focuses on the Future of Global Content Delivery

10 - 12 May conference brings translation and localisation leaders, researchers and buyers together

Seattle, Washington, USA (5 March 2010) - GALA 2010, the Globalization and Localization Association's second Language of Business conference, will bring developers of content together with translation and localisation sellers to discuss and debate the future of global content delivery.

Presenters at GALA 2010: The language of business. The business of language." (10 - 12 May 2010 at the Intercontinental Praha in Prague) includes localisation and translation buyers from such leaders as Hewlett Packard and VMware, researchers from Forrester Research and Common Sense Advisory, and a number of leaders from language service and technology providers. The program for the conference is available at the GALA 2010 website.

Early registration discounts for GALA 2010 are available through 12 March.

The GALA 2010 theme, The Global Community: Capturing Customers Worldwide, reflects the work shared by GALA members and their customers in communicating global content locally. In addition to the program of speakers, the conference will include ever-popular speed networking with translation buyers and sellers.

"In developing the programme for GALA 2010, we searched for lively presenters with deep knowledge in their areas of expertise who could interact directly with our attendees," said Kim Harris, a GALA board member and chair of the programming committee. "Strong presenters with provocative topics, coupled with GALA's very popular speed networking sessions, all in a beautiful setting that encourages collaboration—that is what GALA's conferences are all about."

Feedback from GALA's initial Language of Business conference in 2009 was overwhelmingly positive. Xavier Marchand, a director of production at one of our member companies, commented that, "I had more existing clients and more contacts at GALA 2009 than at any of the shows I have been to before."

Silvia Avary-Silveiro of VeriSign remarked, "The 2009 GALA conference in Cancun was the best conference I went to last year. It was three days of sharing ideas and work experience with bright people in the localization industry and excellent presentations. All that and the added bonus of being in a wonderful location!" GALA 2010 will continue to push the envelope and introduce some new networking concepts.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
