Coca-Cola European Partners Signs a Multiyear Agreement with IBM to Accelerate its Strategic Transformation Journey with Hybrid Cloud

LONDON, Aug. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP), the world’s largest Coca-Cola bottler based on revenue, has signed a multiyear agreement with IBM (NYSE: IBM) to accelerate its transformation to an open hybrid cloud environment using Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The move is designed to reduce its operational expenses, increase IT resiliency and leverage analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in its daily operations to bring enhanced business insights and deliver greater service to its millions of customers.

A key priority for CCEP is to streamline its existing IT infrastructure to create a platform for standardised business processes, data and technology. This will create a springboard from which to leverage data analytics, IoT and AI technologies to provide new insights across its operations to help drive further efficiencies.

As part of the agreement, IBM Services, with its deep industry expertise, will help CCEP transform to a IBM hybrid cloud environment managed by IBM, including the use of IBM public cloud, and several large SAP workloads. IBM will also provide CCEP with a consolidated view and single point of control over its entire IT infrastructure.

Peter Brickley, Chief Information Officer of Coca-Cola European Partners, said: “Our successful collaboration with IBM over the last few years has given us the confidence to take the next step in our strategic cloud-first digital transformation. The selection of IBM’s hybrid cloud architecture with Red Hat OpenShift gives us the flexibility to optimize across different public cloud platforms according to our future needs.”

“As businesses shift to cloud, we understand that each industry and client has unique business needs in their cloud adoption journey. IBM is excited to take Coca-Cola European Partners on this next chapter of their cloud journey delivering on an industry-specific solution as they migrate mission critical workloads to the cloud,” said Howard Boville, SVP IBM Cloud. “By selecting IBM for its hybrid cloud environment with decades of industry expertise and experience, CCEP is embarking on a journey towards an open and secure cloud architecture driving greater digital advancement.”

IBM will help CCEP modernize its IT environment by using Red Hat Enterprise Linux to provide an open standard, cost-effective platform. A cornerstone of this transition will be Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s most comprehensive Kubernetes platform, which will allow CCEP to build mission-critical applications once and run them on IBM public cloud . IBM’s Multicloud Management capability will be used to allow the legacy systems, private and public clouds, to be integrated and managed from a single dashboard.

IBM and CCEP began their journey to the Cloud in 2018, when IBM successfully moved one third of CCEP’s enterprise workloads from a dedicated US data centre to the IBM Cloud in Europe.

Since 2017, the University of Kentucky has used Education Cloud to connect all of its departments on a single platform to deliver connected experiences and real-time communications to students, parents, alumni, faculty, and staff. With Education Cloud, the University of Kentucky was able to quickly pivot to address the emerging pandemic, beginning with a university-wide wellness outreach campaign in March when it contacted all 30,000 students via phone to check in on their mental health and wellness, and share additional resources.

Also in March, the University of Kentucky began to assess how it could safely and effectively bring its community back to campus this coming fall semester. It quickly assembled a cross-departmental team comprising 500 faculty, staff, and students who worked extensively over three months to create a comprehensive return-to-campus framework, outlined in its Playbook for Reinvented Operations. To execute this strategy and manage its return to campus, the university will implement solutions that will enable it to:

  • Conduct daily wellness assessments and symptom checks of its entire student body, faculty, and staff who plan to be on campus this fall
  • Manage, triage, and track initial testing and contact tracing operations
  • View data and insights from its community in the Command Center to assess campus readiness and rapidly respond to changing conditions
  • Implement a faster and more accurate emergency response with manual contract tracing
  • Listen to and generate feedback from its community of 50,000 parents, students, alumni, faculty, and staff through surveys, and share real-time information through personalized communications at scale

Comments on the News
“Our investment in Salesforce’s solutions is more than a crisis response—it’s an investment to come out on the other side of the pandemic stronger and show our community how deeply we care about them,” said University of Kentucky President Dr. Eli Capilouto. “We are using Salesforce’s solutions as a springboard for a healthier community, supporting student mental health and well-being, and preparing our university to handle any number of future scenarios.”

“Reopening will be a different journey for every higher education institution across the U.S.,” said Rob Acker, CEO of “Having a comprehensive framework and agile infrastructure in place are critical to not only returning to campus safely, but to retaining student community culture. We look forward to our continued collaboration with the University of Kentucky to reimagine and deliver the future campus experience with Salesforce’s technology.”

Salesforce and CVS Health Combine COVID-19 Return to Work and Campus Solutions to Help Customers Responsibly Reopen

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, today announced a strategic relationship with CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) that will allow customers to use each company’s COVID-19 return to work and campus solutions together, as they transition employees and students back to worksite and campus locations. The offering will enable customers to use Salesforce workplace management capabilities, including wellness monitoring and manual contact tracing solutions, informed by CVS Health’s Return Ready, a flexible COVID-19 testing solution, to support comprehensive reopening strategies for customers and their stakeholders.

Both companies launched separate solutions to help organizations strengthen their response to COVID-19. Salesforce created, a suite of applications and advisory resources, to help businesses reopen their workplaces while prioritizing the health of their stakeholders. CVS Health launched Return Ready, providing organizations with the flexibility of choosing from multiple COVID-19 testing options—from testing with licensed professionals onsite at the workplace to testing at one of the more than 1,800 CVS Pharmacy COVID-19 drive-thru testing locations.

“While COVID-19 testing is an important tool to responsibly reopen worksite and campus locations, a comprehensive strategy requires wellness monitoring and contact tracing to help prevent an onsite outbreak and spread of the virus,” said Troyen Brennan, M.D., M.P.H., Chief Medical Officer of CVS Health. “While there are a lot of COVID-19 tools hitting the market, the capabilities use the latest science and technology, and we believe together, with our Return Ready testing solution and clinical protocols, we can help our customers activate a comprehensive plan to return and maintain critical populations onsite.”

Complementary Services Enable Integrated Process
Salesforce and CVS Health are providing complementary return to work and campus solutions through a data and workflow model that can be integrated in one centralized place when enabled by customers using the Workplace Command Center. Customers that adopt the solutions provided by both companies:

  • Wellness Monitoring: Salesforce’s survey tool helps organizations monitor and assess their personnel’s health and wellness. When personnel are identified as eligible for testing, they will receive an email with additional information about how and where to complete testing.
  • COVID-19 Testing: CVS Health’s testing solution, guided by clinical consultation, allows organizations to develop a customized testing strategy by letting those organizations choose who, how and where to test individuals returning to worksite and campus locations; and integrates online test scheduling and testing results notification capabilities for enhanced user experience.
  • Reporting: COVID-19 test results that are sponsored by an organization will be shared with that organization by CVS Health, with authorization from the patient or patient’s representative, and with alerts for positive results and state and federal reporting of test results as required. Organizations can then view data securely in Salesforce to manage risk and assess an organization’s current reopening status in three key areas: personnel, spaces and policies.
  • Contact Tracing: When individuals have a positive test result, Salesforce’s manual contact tracing solution can facilitate notifications to those who may have been exposed and identify possible points of transmission, such as colleagues the individual may have come into contact with. Those exposed are notified and receive an email with additional information about how and where to complete testing, either onsite or at a CVS Pharmacy drive-thru testing location based on the organization’s own testing strategy.
  • Shift Management: Built directly into, organizations can monitor facility preparedness and manage shift schedules to determine how to safely adjust or resume business operations. Organizations can better balance workplace coverage and employee availability while creating new capacity models designed to help enable a safe return to work by adjusting office density.

“Testing and manual contact tracing are key factors for organizations to reopen their shared locations and other shared spaces safely,” said Dr. Ashwini Zenooz, Chief Medical Officer at Salesforce. “Together, Salesforce and CVS Health are able to help organizations access solutions and services to help decrease the risks that individuals face as they transition back to their worksite and campus locations.”

Hoth Therapeutics Licenses Intellectual Property to Develop Real-time, Breath-Based COVID-19 Mobile Testing Device

NEW YORK, Aug. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOTH), a biopharmaceutical company, today announced licensing the intellectual property rights relating to the development of a medical device that has the potential to allow public health professionals to immediately diagnose COVID-19 infection via breath sample and track through a mobile device from the George Washington University (‘GW’).

Dr. Mona E. Zaghloul, a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at GW School of Engineering and Applied Science, and her former doctoral student Yangyang Zhao, developed the design of the device, based on prior work of other former students, in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology to detect and distinguish different species of gas. The device is based on nanotechnology Nanoholes using Plasmonics principles. The surface of the device is covered in a thin sheet of gold that can bind with other molecules, like those of a gas. Once the binding occurs, the wavelength of light bouncing off the surface changes, creating a different color of light. Different gases would cause different shifts in light. The results can be available quickly, and artificial intelligence programs can then classify the molecules that are bound to the surface of the device. The results, including the different classes of the molecules, can then be sent to the cloud by a mobile device, allowing the ability to track the data. 

Dr. Jeanne A. Jordan, PhD, a professor in Epidemiology at the GW Milken Institute School of Public Health, was instrumental in recognizing the potential diagnostic capabilities of the technology. As the COVID-19 pandemic spread, she suggested alterations to the device.  The researchers believe that the modified apparatus, which is as small as a strand of hair, can be coated with a solution designed to bind specifically to the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.  This design would allow the virus to bind to the surface, thereby allowing for the detection of an optical change that could immediately be sensed by phone cameras when an infected person’s specimen is applied.

The research by Dr. Zaghloul and Dr. Jordan was funded by a COVID-19 Technology Maturation Grant from GW’s Technology Commercialization Office to accelerate the development of this medical device. The device would allow communities to build trackable real-time databases of infection. People can upload information directly to the cloud.

“These are devices that a public health professional could go out with into the field to administer point-of-care testing, either at a walk-up center or directly in the community,” Dr. Jordan said. “They’re extremely rapid—the turnaround time to having test results is within minutes, and you do the testing right there instead of having to send your sample to a large commercial laboratory with a massive backlog. That would allow these professionals to say immediately if someone needs to be quarantined, and to get the names of their contacts so they can start contact tracing.”

Mr. Robb Knie, Chief Executive Officer of Hoth, stated, “The immediate diagnosis and ongoing tracking of COVID-19 is a critical initiative towards mitigating the ongoing spread of COVID-19.  This device which is under development would allow users to conduct widespread testing and provide instantaneous results through the administration of a breath sample and tracking through a mobile device. Securing the rights to this paradigm shifting technology in the fight against the global COVID-19 pandemic is a significant opportunity for Hoth and its shareholders.  We look forward to working with the team at GW to accelerate the development of this breakthrough technology.”

About Hoth Therapeutics, Inc.
Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing new generation therapies for dermatological disorders. Hoth’s pipeline has the potential to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from indications including atopic dermatitis, chronic wounds, psoriasis, asthma and acne.

New Leading Edge Security Software Stops Cybercriminals

SINGAPORE, Aug. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Solus Connect and One-Tech have announced the launch of advanced security technologies that eliminate payment vulnerabilities and combat online fraud.

Solus Connect, a leading solutions provider of composite user authentication solutions, deliver high-level security software that eliminates the need for dongles, passwords, PINS and security tokens. Their advanced cybersecurity technology enables bespoke payment transaction and fraud specialist, One-Tech, to offer breakthrough services that provides a progressive solution to vulnerable banking and payment-related activities in the digital landscape.

Consumer behaviour around online banking and digital payments has undergone an unprecedented shift. In turn, material changes have been introduced to improve functional operations and reduce the risk of fraud and other cybercrimes. What’s more, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically accelerated the adoption of digital-based services and the wider acceptance of contactless service channels.

The partnership with Solus Connect and One-Tech provides solutions that significantly strengthens online security across multiple industries. Solus Connect’s enhanced adaptive risk platform offers a versatile suite of multi-factor authentication capability options and seamlessly integrates artificial intelligence (AI), unobtrusive biometric solutions and behavioral tools.

Speaking about the new partnership, Alan Kwan, CEO of One-Tech, explained that the opportunities extend beyond Asia Pacific as North and Central America are rapidly adopting contactless methods of value exchange. The platform is also multi-industrial as KYC (know your customer) is essential for access into secure facilities such as buildings and is essential when establishing provenance (especially in high value transactions requiring authenticity). The Solus and One Tech alliance allows us to license the agnostic platform to sectors including but not limited to banking, high-risk industries, pharmaceutical, antiquities and building/hotel management.

Matthew Ainscow, CEO of Solus Connect, commented: “Cashless payment options, whether retail, corporate or enterprise, will by and large continue to proliferate on the momentum of speed, simplicity, security and assurance. Traditional mediums to guard against credential theft and fraud loss do not stand up to today’s threat complexities and sophistication. The partnership with One-Tech will bring about an innovative bleeding edge and holistic industry approach to secured transactions in the payments theatre across the regions.”

Solus Connect and One-Tech will be announcing more developments over the coming months. To find out more about the company’s multi-factor authentication solutions, visit:
