Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur will be part of an iconic, mixed use complex. The hotel, occupying floors 17 through 39 of the property, will feature 412 guest rooms, including 42 suites and will offer over 33,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a 228-seat cafe, a 298-seat specialty restaurant with multiple cuisines, a 74-seat Sky Lobby Lounge, a 102-seat poolside restaurant and bar, a spa with 11 treatment rooms, and a swimming pool.

There are currently 51 Hyatt-branded hotels in Asia Pacific and Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur will join the two existing Hyatt-branded hotels in Malaysia: Hyatt Regency Kinabalu and Hyatt Regency Kuantan Resort. There are 16 other Grand Hyatt hotels in the region’s key gateway cities and destination resorts, including Bali, Bangkok, Beijing, Jakarta, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo.

Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur will be located in the Golden Triangle area of Kuala Lumpur, in a prime location on Jalan Pinang road close to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (“KLCC”) and the iconic Petronas Towers.

Kuala Lumpur is an internationally recognized tourist and business destination. With a metropolitan population of approximately 7.2 million, it is the largest city in Malaysia and a key leisure location. Many of Malaysia’s major commercial banks and financial institutions are headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, as are many Malaysian companies, making it an international gateway city.

“In 2010, Malaysia attracted over 24.5 million tourists 每 rivaling that of countries such as Mexico, Germany and Turkey,” said Willi Martin, area vice president, Southeast Asia, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. “We see Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur as a remarkable opportunity to expand the presence of the Hyatt brand into a principal city in the rapidly emerging Southeast Asia market.”

New Hotel ICON Celebrates Hong Kong’s Creative Excellence

Iconic Hotel Stands for Design and Service Excellence for an Experience Unlike Any Other

HONG KONG, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Hotel ICON, an upscale Hong Kong hotel in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui East, announced its soft opening. Offering exceptional Asian hospitality, Hotel ICON represents the combined efforts of Hong Kong’s most creative talents.

(Photo: http://www.prnasia.com/sa/2011/06/14/20110614880917.html )

With 262 guest rooms ranging in size from 36 to 80m2, Hotel ICON will rank among Hong Kong’s most symbolic landmarks. Standing as a stylish testament to Hong Kong’s creative energy and vibrant arts scene, Hotel ICON showcases work from the city’s celebrated designers and visionaries.

Rocco Yim of the Hong Kong-based Rocco Design Architects Ltd oversaw the hotel’s architectural design. William Lim, Managing Director of Hong Kong’s CL3 Architects, designed the contemporary interiors, including the guestrooms, the Silverbox ballroom and the lobby’s grand sweeping staircase.

Fusing innovative design and classic style, Lim’s goal was to create spaces of ultimate comfort. “Comfort is always my priority when designing guestrooms,” explains Mr. Lim. “We wanted to create a sense of richness and elegance, then let the spectacular views complete the story.”

Fashion doyenne Vivienne Tam also contributed to the project. A graduate of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Tam designed ICON’s exclusive VT Suite, which reflects the artist’s signature look of unforced elegance and chic simplicity.

Hotel ICON’s commitment to local creativity and innovation extends to the staff uniforms. Award-winning Hong Kong designer Barney Cheng fashioned the stylishly clean-cut outfits.

Tommy Li, one of Hong Kong’s most prominent graphic designers, created Hotel ICON’s eye-catching logo. Fluid and evolving, the logo signifies the hotel’s central location as well as its outreach and commitment to the community.

The confluence of art and design is also evident in the artwork. Renowned Hong Kong designer Freeman Lau curated the hotel’s eclectic collection. Hotel ICON currently houses works of art by some of Asia’s best talents, including Cheung Yee, Kan Tai-Keung, Nancy Chu Woo, Hung Keung, Pauline Lam, William Furniss, John Fung, Chow Chun Fai, Tsang Chui Mei and Terence Lee.

“I wanted to give a comprehensive picture of the creative industry here in Hong Kong,” says Mr. Lau. “The aim is to show a diverse group of art works so that guests can get a taste of the different elements in the creative sector.”

As well as highlighting Hong Kong’s most in-demand artists, Hotel ICON also features the iconic work of international designers, including Conran & Partners and Patrick Blanc.

Conran & Partners designed Hotel ICON’s restaurants, including ‘Above & Beyond’, the sleek-and-chic private members’ facility on Level 28, and The Market, an open-plan restaurant offering a tempting selection of pan-Asian and Western favourites.

French botanist and artist Patrick Blanc created and installed the lavish 18-meter vertical garden in the Hotel ICON lobby. Measuring 230m2, the verdant garden wall is the largest of its kind in Asia.

Exceptional Eateries

Hotel ICON houses three restaurants: Above & Beyond Chineserestaurant, The Market and GREEN. Located on the top floor of the hotel and featuring panoramic views of Victoria Harbour, Above & Beyond provides gourmet lovers with traditional dim sum and the best of seasonal Cantonese cuisine.

Designed by Conran & Partners, Above & Beyond evokes the mood of a private club. Hand-picked books and eclectic Asian artifacts line the library shelves, creating an intimate, relaxed space while the spectacular floor-to-ceiling views add to the allure. Three ultra-stylish private dining rooms, one with a functioning kitchen, are also available for guests to invite a private chef to serve customised meals.

The Market on the second floor adds extra spice with a dash of variety. Inspired by the Hong Kong’s iconic wet-markets, The Market offers a wide range of top-quality Asian and international delicacies. A foodie haven, the market-style eatery features open kitchens and a buzzy, vibrant atmosphere. The restaurant accommodates up to 160 diners and includes an open-air garden terrace for those who prefer al fresco dining.

GREEN, situated on the lobby level, provides guests with a neighbourhood cafe by day and tapas bar by night. GREEN is the perfect venue to casually meet, unwind or simply enjoy great comfort food in an elegant setting.

Uncompromising Levels of Comfort

Offering the ultimate in comfort, Hotel ICON guestrooms comprise seductive extras, Vogue-worthy interiors and thoughtful surprises. Standard features include a complimentary mini-bar, iPhone/iPod docking station, complimentary wired and Wi-Fi internet connections and an ultra-slim 40″ Ultra High Definition LED TV.

Hotel ICON’s Angsana Spa is a tranquil oasis devoted to indulgence and pampering. Within this private retreat, professional therapists from the world-famous Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts

offer a range of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments.

Located on Level 9, the harbor-facing outdoor swimming pool, gym and fitness centre allow guests to exercise while enjoying the spectacular view of the city.

Hotel ICON’s grand Silverbox ballroom is the ideal venue for a celebration or theatre-style conference. With a maximum capacity of 480 persons, the main hall can be divided into smaller spaces for more intimate gatherings or private corporate events.

“Hotel ICON is the first of its kind in Asia,” said Richard Hatter, General Manager of Hotel ICON. “We are proud of the hotel and its link to local culture, which can be seen through various features of the hotel. Our aim is to further develop excellence in the hospitality industry and to celebrate local and international cuisine and creative design.”

PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Thomson Reuters, the authority on research analytics and evidence-based decision support for more than half a century, today announced the release of Institutional Profiles™, a dynamic web-based resource that provides a comprehensive view of nearly 500 of the world’s leading academic research institutions.

Through rigorous collection, vetting, aggregation, and normalization of critical indicators such as faculty size, number of students, academic reputation, funding, and publication and citation data, Institutional Profilespresents a detailed portrait of each institution’s activity. These indicators enable administrators and policy makers to reliably measure their institution’s performance and, for the first time, make international comparisons against peers in an individual subject area or across multiple disciplines.

Institutional Profiles supports institutions in meaningful evidence-based decision making,” said Jonathan Adams, director of research evaluation at Thomson Reuters. “The tool presents a 360-degree view of where each institution stands and facilitates point-by-point comparison with similar organizations around the world, helping those in charge evaluate outcomes and expedite strategic decisions.”

Backed by meaningful, comparative analysis from Thomson Reuters, Institutional Profiles uses information collected from institutions and researchers in 47 countries to provide an insider’s view into the abilities and expertise of each institution.  Administrators can make connections between different data points, such as research investment versus academic output, to identify areas of success or those in need of improvement.

Key features of Institutional Profiles include:

  • Research Footprint™, a visualization tool that facilitates instant comparisons of performance across a wide array of indicators and subjects;
  • The ability to create customized Peer Groups for continuous comparative tracking;
  • Visualization tools, including scatter plots and trend graphs, for easy reporting

Institutional Profiles creates a unique opportunity for administrators to generate customized data measurements and comparisons based on their needs,” said Keith MacGregor, executive vice president at Thomson Reuters. “All of the data aggregated in this tool has been evaluated and normalized by Thomson Reuters experts, empowering leaders to make strategic decisions with confidence.”

Splunk Breakthrough Recognized with Grant of U.S. Patent for Organizing and Understanding Massive Machine Data

Machine Data Is the Most Challenging, Complex and Fastest Growing Area of Big Data

SAN FRANCISCO, June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Splunk( http://www.splunk.com ), a leading provider of Operational Intelligence software, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company a new patent for organizing and understanding machine data through use of a “machine data web.” A Splunk-created machine data web can be searched, browsed, navigated, analyzed and visualized enabling IT professionals and businesses to solve a wide range of mission-critical problems, all without the inherent limitations of traditional approaches.

“Eight years ago, we began thinking about the challenges that result from information systems generating vast amounts and disparate types of machine data across physical and virtual environments both within data centers and in the cloud,” said Erik Swan, co-founder and CTO, Splunk. “This information is extremely valuable to IT and business users. However, there was no unified way to organize and extract actionable insights from the massive machine data generated across diverse sources such as web servers, application servers, databases, and networks. That is what we set out to create with Splunk.”

Splunk’s Machine Data Web patent includes turning machine data into a machine data web. A machine data web is created by organizing machine data into events representing discrete activities, and dynamically linking events together representing larger, more complex activities. Much like the World Wide Web is a hyperlinked information space of documents and web sites, a machine data web is an interconnected information space of information system events and activities. The machine data web can be searched, browsed and navigated, and analyzed as a proxy for the information-processing environment itself. Splunk’s technology has been granted U.S. Patent No. 7,937,344.

The volume and business-critical nature of machine data has exploded with the growth of mobile devices, location based data, the web, online commerce, social media, IP-connected devices and sensors, RFID, and other sources that extend far beyond traditional IT systems. “The volume and speed with which machine data is generated make it difficult to collect and organize for analysis often requiring sophisticated parallel processing frameworks,” said David Menninger, VP & Research Director, Ventana Research. “Splunk has been tackling this problem with a unique solution that is generating a significant amount of commercial success.”

“Our CIO is driving a real-time dashboarding initiative across the organization,” said Noah Gift, Associate Director AT&T Interactive. “Splunk’s ability to ingest and correlate large amounts of machine data generated by our infrastructure and rapidly build dashboards gives us the real-time insights we need to deliver early on our CIO’s decree.”

Over 2,600 customers in 78 countries use Splunk to make their machine data accessible, useful and valuable to IT and throughout their organizations. Unlike other approaches to big data, Splunk uniquely offers a free version that users can download and start seeing results in minutes or hours, rather than months. Additionally, the free version enables users to scale their usage of Splunk as their needs expand. To download Splunk for free visit: http://www.splunk.com/download .
