Another mission for them in Taiwan is nother mission for them in Taiwan is continuing to ink agreements and partnerships. A partnership for digital labeling applications in production and manufacturing is also on the table this year.

For ITZone LLC Chairman Battulga.N
from Mongolia, the trip to COMPUTEX was part of a search for reliable hardware, industry updates and partners in IoT, which he believes will be an ongoing trend over the next five years for system integration companies. More importantly, ITZone is also looking for affordable, reliable hardware suppliers for their newly developed product, the Mogul BOX, a private cloud solution targeting SMEs. “We have developed the software, but we’d like to integrate hardware to provide to our customers” to provide a complete package, he said.

from Uzbekistan was looking for digital display screens to broadcast ads in taxis, as his company runs MyTaxi, one of the biggest operators back home. As a leading GPS navigation provider, it usually does business with Chinese tablets for GPS navigation and sets up taxi-hailing kiosks at hotels and restaurants, among other places, he said.

Speaking of his COMPUTEX experience, Paiziev said he was impressed to find facial recognition systems that could be implemented in businesses to identify employees when they clock in — a faster approach than fingerprint scans and one he believes could be a good fit for his many clients.

IQ Solutions CEO Daniyar Omurzakov

For IQ Solutions CEO Daniyar Omurzakov from Kazakhstan, smart technology that can be integrated with public infrastructure — smart cities, specifically — was the main thing he wanted to take back to his home country. Omurzakov said he had talked to a company doing smart lighting and found its approach appealing. “Before I thought smart lighting could (simply offer) efficient energy usage, but that company told me that they’ve installed sensors that also allow them to monitor traffic and roads and do security surveillance.”
