Global and China Beer Industry Report, 2012-2014

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01081129/Global-and-China-Beer-Industry-Rep...

In recent years, the global beer production and sales have maintained continuous growth. Total production in 2011 reached 192.7 million kiloliters, a year-on-year rise of 3.82%; China, the United States, Brazil, Russia and Germany as the world's top five largest beer-producing countries together accounted for 54% of the global beer production. Following the acceleration of cross-border mergers and acquisitions in the beer industry (e.g. Anheuser-Busch InBev wholly owns China's Harbin Brewery; SABMiller holds a 49% stake in China Resources Snow Breweries; Carlsberg acquires a 29.71% stake in China's Chongqing Brewery, etc.), international beer companies have witnessed an increasing concentration ratio; currently, Anheuser-Busch InBev, SABMiller, Heineken and Carlsberg occupy a total of 46% market share.

As the world's largest beer producer and consumer, in 2011 China realized beer production and sales volume of 48.989 million kiloliters and 48.557 million kiloliters, respectively, of which, the former accounted for 25.42% worldwide. At present, China's beer market is mainly distributed in East, Central, South and Northeast regions, whose aggregate output held 76.5% of the national total in 2011.

In 2011, China Resources Enterprise, Limited (CRE), Tsingtao Brewery Co.,Ltd. and Yanjing Beer Group Corporation as the leading beer brewers in China accounted for a total of 48.1% market share nationwide; wherein, CRE ranked first in beer sales volume by reaching 10.235 million kiloliters.

In addition to actively intensifying brand propaganda, major Chinese beer brewers have also expanded capacity by way of new construction, mergers & acquisitions or construction expansion. Tsingtao Brewery, for instance, realized new capacity of 2.1 million kiloliters in 2011 by means of acquiring Hangzhou Xin'an River Brewery Co., Ltd. and Shaoguan Vigour Brewery Co., Ltd., expanding Suqian Brewery, etc.; in 2012, the new construction project of Guangdong Jieyang Brewery, expansion projects of Yangzhou Brewery and Weiwu Brewery were completed and put into production; moreover, Tsingtao Brewery's first overseas base "Tsingtao Brewery (Thailand) Co., Ltd." plans to be completed and put into operation at the end of 2013.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
