What does 2020 hold in store?

2019 was a year of rapid innovation – and disruption – for both the IT industry and the broader business community.

With the widespread adoption of hybrid multicloud as the de-facto architecture for enterprise customers, organisations everywhere are under tremendous pressure to modernise their infrastructure and deliver tangible business value around data-intensive applications and workloads.

The LG CordZeroThinQ A9 Stick Vacuum offers vacuuming and mopping from a single stick-type device, while the new CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop combines LG’s robotics and appliance knowhow in a compact package.

“With more consumers today opting for hard floors, it was apparent that vacuums alone wouldn’t satisfy everyone. By leveraging our technological expertise and in-depth understanding of consumers’ needs, we developed CordZero ThinQ products to handle the most challenging cleaning jobs,” said Dan Song, president of the LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.

LG’s proprietary Power Drive MopTM technology drives both the CordZeroThinQ A9 and CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop.

An automatic water supply system enables the two rapidly rotating mop pads to have just the right amount of water to clean without leaving a puddle behind.

To accommodate different types of flooring and cleaning power, users can choose to increase, decrease or completely shut off the flow of water.
