PARIS, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MIPIM today announces the 28 finalists for the 2014 MIPIM Awards, selected by a jury of international real estate professionals.
This year's MIPIM Awards include two new categories "Best Urban Regeneration Project" and "Best Innovative Green Building."
"Environmental, social and demographic issues are shaping the future of real estate buildings and are spurring the industry to build a city model that is more sustainable. The launch of these two new MIPIM Awards categories acknowledges the know-how and the expertise of those who are successfully meeting the challenges of this new development," explains Filippo Rean, MIPIM Director.
Commenting on the global trends in this year's MIPIM Awards, President of the Jury, Michael Strong, Executive Chairman EMEA, CBRE, noted: "We had a tremendous response to the competition again in 2014, with a truly diverse range of projects to judge. It's interesting that many more submissions are for residential development or mixed-use including residential. It is clear that there is much more creativity around the design and expansion of residential living in city centres."
MIPIM Awards winners will be chosen in Cannes by a combination of the MIPIM delegates and the international jury, each group representing 50% of the final vote.
For the 3rd year in a row, the Special Peoples' Prize rewards the development that wins the most votes online before MIPIM opens. The public can vote for this category as of 3 February on the MIPIM site and on the official event Facebook page.
The Jury will also pay tribute to a project from each 2014 Country of Honour: Brazil, Russia and Turkey.

The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...

As enterprises look to take advantage of the cloud, they need to understand the importance of safeguarding their confidential and sensitive data in cloud environments. Enterprises must protect their data from (i) system administrators who don't need to see the data in the clear and (ii) adversaries who become system administrators from stolen credentials. In short, enterprises must take control of their data: The best way to do this is by using advanced encryption, centralized key management and...
