Chennai April 26 HCL has launched `self-healing computers’, laptops that can recover all data in less than a minute — a big help if the laptop crashes due to a virus.

Through the `Embedded Continuity and Control (EC2) technology, HCL’s laptops are `self-healing computers’ that are able to recover all data in less than a minute, said Mr George Paul, Executive Vice-President, HCL Infosystems.

The EC2 technology was designed to minimise the system downtime by protecting the system from unwanted and unpredictable changes of the system configurations, operating system, software setting, parameters settings, caused by viruses, user’s errors, system crashes.

The technology was not an alternative to any other security measures such as antivirus, firewall, software update patches and data back up, he said.

A laptop with EC2 technology automatically stores data in a back-up space in the machine and updates a complete range of its own working state at regular intervals. There will be a complete record of all data, including software and user data, residing inside the computer at any given point of time.

For instance, in case of a system crash, malfunction or accidental loss of data, a user can reload the previously recorded image and have the computer working exactly like it was when the image was recorded. HCL now has its `Non-stop series of Leaptops’ starting at Rs 27,990.

India’s “breadbasket” aims to be new IT hotspot

<%image(20070505-chd.jpg|450|267|)%>

CHANDIGARH, India – Fed up with traffic snarls and scarred roads, a software engineer in India’s flagship IT hub of Bangalore took to the streets in protest last year — doodling on his laptop while trotting along on a bullock-cart.

While Bangalore continues to host the bulk of India’s IT business and is home to more than 1,500 top firms, poor roads and traffic woes are now pushing IT firms to look beyond Bangalore — to newer cities like Chandigarh, hundreds of miles north.

Chandigarh is joint capital of the Punjab and Haryana states — better known as India’s “breadbaskets”. The city is now taking tentative steps to become a new corporate destination.

“The IT industry is excited about Chandigarh’s potential as an emerging IT destination,” said Kiran Karnik, president of the National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM), India’s top trade body for the IT industry. “Already, many IT companies have begun operations there or have plans of doing so, making it one of the new ‘hot spots’ for the IT industry,” he told Reuters by email.

Infosys, India’s second-largest software company, was among the first to move here and began full operations from its complex spread over 30 acres in the Rajiv Gandhi Chandigarh Technology Park (RGCTP).

The office currently employs about 1,500 people and plans for more than 5,000 staff to work in the glass-walled building.

At least 13 other companies operate from the 123 acres of the park, including Wipro Ltd., Bharti Airtel, Tech Mahindra, and eSys.

“When fully functional in the next few years, the park is expected to have 25,000 IT professionals,” said Chandigarh’s IT director Manjit Brar. “It will be the IT hub of north India.”

Current investment in the park, located on the outskirts of the city, is 7 billion rupees ($165 million) and in two years it is expected to touch 30 billion rupees ($711 million), Brar said.

THE BANGALORE WAY?

The city hopes to benefit from a booming market that India dominates.
ndia’s software sector expects exports to rise 33 percent to $31.3 billion in the fiscal year which ended on March 31, according to NASSCOM. In comparison, the Philippines earned $3.6 billion from outsourcing revenues in 2006.

Over 2001/06, India’s share in global sourcing is estimated to have grown to 65 percent for IT services and 45 percent for back-office services like call centres.

While there is excitement about Chandigarh emerging as the new IT stop, there is concern it could go the Bangalore way if it is unable to sustain rapid growth which IT brings to a region.

“There is no doubt that a lot of people are trying hard to sell Chandigarh as the next Silicon Valley in India,” said Simran Aujla, an IT professional.

“But I am not too sure if a city planned for 500,000 people will be able to sustain the rapid growth. Unless infrastructure keeps pace with growth, Chandigarh may become another Bangalore.”

To begin with Chandigarh is a federally-administered territory with restricted geographical boundaries.

Millions of square feet of office space outside city limits are required for it to be a full-fledged IT destination — something dependent on permission from the federal government.

But despite obstacles, many lives have already been changed.

Before the IT park, local graduates had few options to get well-paid jobs near home. They would either go to IT centres like Gurgaon and Greater Noida on the outskirts of New Delhi, or travel hundreds of miles down south to Bangalore.

“I was very tense in my college days because being the only daughter, I knew my parents would never let me go to Bangalore,” said Amrita Singh, who works for a multinational company.

“I was afraid my degree in engineering would just go waste but today I have no dearth of job offers with so many big IT firms flocking to Chandigarh,” she added.

Real estate agents, too, are excited at rising property prices.

“The IT park has pushed up real estate prices like never before,” said Amarjit Singh. “A small piece of land quoted for around 2.5 million rupees ($59,270) a few years ago is today unavailable for 10 million Indian rupees ($237,100).”

Broadband to go free in 2 yrs

Broadband to go free in 2 yrs

NEW DELHI: The government proposes to offer all citizens of India free, high-speed broadband connectivity by 2009, through the state-owned telecom service providers BSNL and MTNL. While consumers would cheer, the move holds the potential to kill the telecom business as we know it.

You have heard of free municipal broadband — many cities in the US have drenched themselves in wireless broadband connectivity which is freely accessible to residents. The idea is to boost economic activity in general. The government of India plans to achieve free broadband connectivity at a speed of 2 MB per second across the country, with a similar goal. Senior government officials expect to be able to achieve this goal spending only a portion of the corpus of the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF).

All telecom operators contribute 5% of their revenues every year to USOF. It is estimated that the unutilised sum from the USOF has touched Rs 9,194.12 crore by March, 2007-end.

The current technological trend is for voice calls also to shift to the internet, using voice over internet protocol (VOIP). The quality of VOIP calls, patchy to start off with, has been improving steadily over the years and by 2009, is likely to be as good as current analogue calls that establish a circuit between the calling and called parties. When that happens, revenue streams from calls would dry up and telecom companies would need to develop value-added applications to make money from the connectivity they provide for free or virtually free.

The department of telecom (DoT) will be taking a series of steps to make its plans for free broadband a reality. These include, using the USOF to set an extensive optic cable network across the country, opening up the long-distance sectors to further competition, allowing free and fair access to cable landing stations, permitting the resale of bandwidth, setting up web hosting facilities within the country and asking all internet service providers to connect to the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI).

With international bandwidth rates in India being between two-to-five times higher than the global standards, the DoT will also go all out to break the monopoly of existing national and international distance players in a bid to induce cut throat competition in this sector. “India has only a handful of NLD/ILD operators while small countries such as Singapore and Taiwan have over 30 and 60 long distance operators respectively.

With limited players, they control the bandwidth gateways and form a cartel and this ensures that tariffs remain high. The entry of new players such as AT&T, British Telecom amongst others has started creating an impact,” the government source added.

Importantly, the ground work for this project is already being laid. This comes as telecom regulator Trai had recently proposed that access to submarine cables be made cost-based and independent companies be given free and fair access to cable landing stations. (Cable landing stations connect submarine telecom cables with data and voice networks in the country.) Additionally, Trai had also recommended that bandwidth resale be permitted in India. Industry analysts estimate that these two steps by Trai alone will lead to a 30% reduction in bandwidth costs, when implemented.

In a related move, the DoT will also issue norms which mandate Indian companies, including state-owned BSNL and MTNL to begin large scale web hosting services. “This is because, most of the internet traffic generated in India is currently routed out of the country and re-routed back, resulting in the increased use of international bandwidth,” the government source said.

Additionally, the plan also includes asking all internet service providers to connect their networks to NIXI. This will also ensure that internet traffic, originating and destined for India, is routed within India resulting in optimum domestic bandwidth utilisation. Currently, the very purpose of establishment of NIXI has not been served as only 27 ISPs out of 135 operational ISPs have joined it, the source explained.

First Virtual IT Store of North India to be launched on 19th January 2007

First Virtual IT Store of North India to be launched on 19th January 2007

Chandigarh, 12th January, 2007
Leading laptops and mobile computing solutions provider of the region, Fastrack Computing, in association with S J Edutech P Limited is launching a complete IT solutions e-commerce enabled portal on Friday, 19th of January 2007 in Chandigarh.

The web-portal, at www.fastrackcomputing.com will be a fully featured online virtual store for all kinds of IT products with specific focus on mobile computing products. To launch-off, a complete range of laptops, notebooks, tablets PCs, PDAs and desktops are will be available on the virtual mart. A separated virtual store for upgradation possibilities, laptop hardware, accessories and peripherals is also being setup within the portal. Fastrack Computing are the direct country partners for world’s top laptop brands – Fujitsu, Toshiba, HP, Acer, Compaq and HCL and others.

“The web-portal’s payment system has been developed using 128-bit SSL encryption, which is so-far the highest secure encryption standard available. While most payment gateways run on 16 or 32-bit encryption, the proposed system will allow users to confidently order products online. Payments for purchases can also be made through Paypal, Credit Card or Cash on Delivery,” informed Er. Akhil Verma, CEO of S J Edutech P Limited. “This would be a very different kind of virtual store and first of its kind in India. Though there are many sites in developed nations which are providing similar services, actual grass-root level e-commerce is yet to catch up in India. We will be using our own developed technology index – called ‘SPAC Index’ (Satisfaction in Process Adherence for the Customer) in which 7 different parameters for customer-requirements have been taken into account. Currently, the lack of confidence while making purchases through credit card, etc. is a major reason behind the failure of e-commerce in India. We have seen e-commerce companies like come with a bang and fade out in the recent past, and the reason was lack of proper customer handling and vanishing customer confidence. In our system, we are offering state-of-the-art standardized sealed products from world leaders like Toshiba to our customers which would be backed by a very solid online and offline support system, which is already being implemented. Fastrack Computing has already appointed a dedicated engineers’ team trained by Fujitsu, Japan and Toshiba, Japan for implementing the technical support system. A special first of its kind ticket based system, in which the average response time has been guaranteed as just 100 minutes, has been setup. The system automatically notifies the customer through e-mail as well as SMS about the status of his support-ticket,” Verma added.

Another unique section is the ‘Practical Laptop Chooser’ section of the web-portal where customers are guided through by the system to choose the best laptop suiting their requirements and pockets. Separate individuals have separate requirements and as such different categories based on laptop use have been created – like a graphics and multimedia designer, a student or research scholar, a corporate professional, a business traveler, a gamer and someone looking for a budget laptop, etc. Based on these requirements, the system also suggests the various models available in the market which match one’s requirements. The customer can thus choose the laptop from the virtual store and make a wise purchase right-away at the lowest rates possible.

The virtual store consists of product portfolios of all major laptop brands where customers can see detailed specifications, company information, MRP / Offer Prices and can even zoom-in to see the product slideshow online. Separate sections for careers and jobs, events and news and a dedicated laptop upgradation center are being setup virtually.

According to Mr. Iqbal Singh, MD, the virtual stores would be providing laptops at lowest-most possible bulk-purchase rates since the process would eliminate middle-men and the entire benefit will be passed-on to the customers. “We shall be offering laptops at unbelievable prices with many top-brand models even in the sub – Rs. 30,000/- category. The prices of these models like Toshiba Satellite L30 have been slashed by more than Rs. 10,000/- and an online purchases will also entitle a Free Printer to the customers. Customer is the king in this competitive era. As for us, selling products using this concept eliminates the bulk of our showroom, warehousing, display, electricity, staff and other costs; in addition, we have tie-ups with direct international manufacturers; so we will be able to provide the products at such low rates,” he laments.

“Ultimately the future for all of us is online; especially in IT related products and services. Those who do not shift over to this system will be automatically eliminated by the wise, aware and demanding customer of today,” said Verma.

To make e-commerce actually embed into our system, it has to be gelled with the mindset of us Indians. We have a habit of seeing and touching the things before we actually buy them, all this can change if we standardize the products and offer them as per very well-defined specifications and standards, especially in case of IT products. Additionally, proper customer handling procedures and standards have to be implemented. Feedback, pre-sales and after-sales follow-ups, extended warranties, on-site support, relations-ship management, etc are just a few steps which can make major changes in the mindset of online purchasers. In our online system, we have taken care of these very basic aspects to enthuse confidence in our customers,” he added.

“A dedicated ‘SPAC Support Index’ system which lays out very comprehensive parameters to ensure Satisfaction in Process Adherence for the Customer using seven indices of Pasci (pre and after sales customer interaction index), Corscac (co-ordination scales for customer), iCDi (institutional / corporate customer development), SEA (stepped empowerment at our organizational level), FECO-FECO (feedback system), ICR (individual customer relations) and PAI for process adherence.

Under our GBRI (Guaranteed Best Rates in India) initiative, we are offering heavy discounts and offering all our products at the best prices in India which even beat bulk-purchasers,” said Mr. Iqbal Singh, MD of Fastrack Computing. “We are able to give this pricing Selling through this channel eliminates the bulk of our show-room, ware-housing, display, electricity, staff and other overhead costs, and we pass-on all this benefit to the customer. Due to higher numbers, a further special-discount is offered on some specific models which are our very popular models. As a special inaugural offer, color printers are being offered with most of our laptops,” he added.
