Nexthink Recognized as a Computerworld Honors Laureate
IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program today announces Nexthink as a 2013 Laureate. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change. Other laureates are companies like Cisco, HP, Microsoft, IBM or SAP.
“Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and society functions. For the past 25 years the Computerworld Honors Program has had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements,” said John Amato, vice president & publisher, Computerworld. “Computerworld is honored to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of the 2013 class of Laureates and to share their work. These projects demonstrate how IT can advance organizations’ ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper.”
“Nexthink is proud to be recognized by Computerworld and to be counted among this year’s Honors Laureates,” said Pedro Bados, CEO at Nexthink. “It’s rewarding that our customers such as the Paris Fire Brigade (BSPP) are using IT to benefit society and change the world for the better.”
“Our job is very demanding and the BSPP is constantly solicited for interventions (more than 1,400 per day on average). We serve the general public and must respond to emergencies in a timely manner. IT problems or failures could have serious consequences on the civilian population. Nexthink allows us to be proactive and prevent the spread of incidents while substantially improving the resolution time of the latter,” said Captain Claude Pilatre, Manager Systems and Networks within the STI, BSPP.

Swiss start-up turns to the Nasdaq
Last year Auris Medical raised more than CHF47 million in venture capital for further growth. This was the largest round of financing in Switzerland in 2013. The company has two drugs in development: an injection for tinnitus and a drug for hearing loss in the inner ear. The tinnitus medication has already started the third and most expensive stage of development, the phase III trial. The Basel company, which has its headquarters in Zug, intends to raise the necessary capital on the Nasdaq: the IPO should bring Auris a total of $95 million in new money.
