The internet is one of the fastest growing media in today’s India and the world, everyone knows. But even living in this digital age, many business owners are still close to this online world and do not want to believe that having a digital presence today, it is absolutely necessary.
Therefore, we have compiled some data on the current growth of the Internet in India, to help you convince that customer basis with more resistant to digital.
A survey showed how technology in India is becoming more democratic. The latest survey showed that Indians with low-income are also connected to the Internet and the number is growing at a rapid pace.
The number of Internet users in India is expected to triple by 2016.
The higher growth of internet access in the last six years, the Indians were above 50 years.
Today we have 160 million Indian browsing on computers and laptops using cloud computing solutions to store their important data.
And we cannot forget the phones, which are already part of the lives of nearly 70% of Indians, highlighting women who have surpassed men in the mobility.
Be on the computer, tablets, smartphones, internet cafes or even at community centers installed in low-income communities, the internet is there, and we can not escape it. And companies that are not inserted in the middle with a good online presence, surely you are losing market share.
We will now help that number grow?
The distinction between Virtualization and Cloud Computing is crucial and necessary for business. For many companies and professionals both are the same. Although Cloud computing uses virtualization, virtualization and cloud computing are not the same thing. They treat IT challenges in various sizes and operated at different scopes with different levels of impact on a business.
Some quick comparisons between virtualization and cloud computing solutions:
Virtualization is technical, Cloud Computing is business
Virtualization is for technical IT, Cloud Computing is for all
Virtualization is not governed, Cloud Computing is governed
Virtualization isolates computing resources, thus offering an opportunity to change and consolidate the isolated resources to better use and greater efficiency.
Cloud computing is the ability to make resources available on demand. Cloud computing is “service” and “service” is about the availability and responsiveness to market opportunities that are relevant.
Cloud Computing consists of the following:
Self-Service on Demand : If someone wants to access your cloud resources, they must be available, no matter what that means. The client company must be able to access (and change the access to) resources in the cloud without interacting with anyone.
Extensive Network Access : Above all, the most vital feature of cloud computing is the fact What is network based and accessible from anywhere, from any standardized platform (ie, desktop computers, mobile devices, etc..).
Public Cloud: Various customers may be using the same set of resources, at the same time.
Quick Elasticity : The purpose of sharing resources is to avoid the capital expenditure required for the creation of the network and computing infrastructure. The reason why these costs are so high is because companies must respond to peaks in demand for their services. By outsourcing to a cloud, the demand becomes “damped” by the size of the cloud provider and computing capability. The risk of failures and service interruptions is significantly reduced.
Service Measured : The cloud provider should essentially act as an electric utility, measuring the amount of service provided and reacting accordingly (both in terms of customer billing, and upgrading hardware and software, as appropriate).
With scenes of earthquakes, floods and tsunamis in different regions of the world, still fresh in our memory, companies are more aware than ever that are planning and doing preparation, especially with regard to critical business systems, such as contact centers, are fundamental.
Legislative initiatives, now require that companies analyze how they can support their contact center in a disaster situation. There are several factors that companies should consider when planning a full program of disaster recovery. We must consider all possibilities, but especially, to recognize that the term disaster encompasses a number of unpleasant situations and the contact center may face specific problems such as the building being damaged or downtime, power failure, equipment destroyed or disabled, network and data corrupted, lost or disabled, security systems affected, among others.
Disaster recovery can have different meanings for people, but regardless of whether the setting is focused on high availability, recovery, and system redundancy, it is important to be sensitive to the technology that the company has as to the processes around this technology. Before the organization can develop a disaster recovery plan efficiently, we need to answer questions about contact center technology, such as: The system is redundant for yourself? Does the inner workings have redundancy? You can run two systems, one primary and the other as backup in different locations? Each system can be configured to support all transactions if one of the systems fails? Is it possible to start the system remotely without manual intervention?
Preparation of People and Processes in the Disaster Recovery Plan
It is not enough to have backup technology. The company must also have procedures for each type of disaster in every possible location. For example, does the contact center employees know what to do if business continuity is interrupted? Do they know where to continue the work, or if they have access to hosted applications that allow them to remotely access contact center applications from damaged facilities? There will be agents in other geographic areas they can access the system and services of the affected areas? New applications are required for self-service to free agent capabilities to critical questions necessary? The solutions in the locality allow customer service uniformly, if agents have no familiarity to take positions, and the agents were informed about this possibility? Is there someone who takes responsibility for ensuring that the voice options self-service update automatically? CRM solutions premises will enable uniform access to customer information, and the agents were trained to use the applications?
Also, if the company is outsourcing any part of contact center initiatives, one should make sure that the vendor has their own recovery plans in place.
Finally, the best disaster recovery plan is useless if it is not updated continuously and if not regularly tested. Often, the call centers invest much time, money and other resources for the development of a plan, but make the mistake of ignoring the maintenance required to keep the plan work effectively and efficiently. The financial impact of relying on an untested or outdated plan can be devastating.
The natural and technological disasters can be disastrous for business too, but not necessarily. Companies that proactively select and implement appropriate technologies and disaster recovery processes can minimize interruptions in customer service and keep receipts arising despite unexpected events.
First thing you should know before you continue reading; there’s no such Rocket science or some Theorem or Algebraic Formula to become an Entrepreneur. Each and every Entrepreneur we know is different from the other. There are similarities between Entrepreneurs and we will walk through those in continuation with this article. Before we discuss about those similarities, please take a pause for few seconds and list out your favorite top 10 Entrepreneurs…..
Most of us look at Steve Jobs(Apple), Bill Gates(Microsoft), Mark Zuckerberg(Facebook), Larry Page and Sergey Brin(Google), Jeff Bezos(Amazon), Narayan Murthy(Infosys), Azim Premji(Wipro), Lakshmi Niwas Mittal ( Arcelor Mittal Steel) & Dhirubhai Ambani ( Reliance ).
Now if you try to compare qualities of Mark Zuckerberg and Dhirubhai Ambani, it would be extremely difficult to identify similarities between both. Every Entrepreneur evolves with his own Success model and continues to purify his thought process with experience. Mark’s employees treat him like a friend, while Dhirubhai’s employees treated him like an old-timer Boss. A New Generation Entrepreneur has to play a friendly role with his young team, while an old timer had his own harsh ways of getting things done. Steve Jobs played a role of a Mentor for his Team and motivated them all the time to do something innovative, while Larry and Sergey themselves did all the innovative coding and research in the initial few years. Every Entrepreneur has his own success formula, but few things are common amongst all, which we will review in the other half of this write-up.
When I started my Business, I had no clue of what I would be after 3 – 5 years. Dreams were always there at the back of my mind, but the Road was never visible in the beginning. The raw material I had with me to become an Entrepreneur was my Engineering Degree and the knowledge I got from Engineering, positive thinking and motivation that I accumulated by reading good books like “You can Win” or “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective people” and Rock Solid support that came from my Father and Mother to do something different from the rest. I had this belief from my college days that I was a good leader and I could lead people in the right direction. Leadership was my passion right from the school days, but I never wanted to become a Politician nor did I want people to vote for me and make me an Elected Leader. Things are extremely difficult in the initial days of your Entrepreneurship, as you are not aware of what all is there within you and what is your core expertise.
Every new customer I got for my “Outsourced Hosting Support” Business, gave me enough boost to work hard for 18 hours a day. I always kept doors of my brain open to grab any new opportunity that came towards me. Most of the startups fail because they don’t create or accept opportunities which come towards them.
Few principles which I followed right from the beginning have helped me to come so far:-
To be a New Generation Entrepreneur, you will need to study success of all types of Entrepreneurs and adapt some of their skills. Following one single Entrepreneur completely can never make you successful. You have to come up with your own Success Formula to become an Entrepreneur.
You want to make a website ?
Here you can learn everything you need to create your website.
No need to buy books or manuals. All the steps that you’ll need to understand are explained here.
What You Need To Start Making Website
There are two basic steps to make a website:
1) Register a domain name (for the address, eg. website.com or website.co.in , etc..).
2) Hosting Service (a server where you will put the pages of your site).
But before we start creating a website, you must define the type of website you want and choose the best domain hosting service for your needs.
Want to make a Website or want to make a Blog?
Do not know the difference between the two? Cannot decide which one to choose, or if you need both? Consider:
The Free Blog may have the advantage of being easier and faster to get to work. Just go to blogspot.com or wordpress.com, register, choose a template, launch the text, a photo / image, and you’re done! The blog is done in seconds! You do not need to know any programming or HTML.
But you cannot put the website online quickly. You have to get a domain, hosting and a good program for creating sites (tool that can be provided by the dedicated hosting service, or we can buy the software – as is the case for example of Dreamweaver ).
A Blog is better if you have a topic about which you will talk often. When people like the blog, subscribe to it. People subscribe to a blog by subscribing your feed, which means that they are waiting for the blog update and the blog should be updated quite regularly. The latest content is placed at the top of the page indicating the date it was published. If the blog is not updated as frequently, you start losing readers.
With sites there is a pressure of having them constantly updated. We make websites with themes and content that does not easily become outdated, and remain useful for long time.
But attention both Blogs and Sites require work, especially if you want to achieve traffic levels that lets you earn money online.
At an early stage, especially for those who are just beginning to learn how to make a website, it is advisable to start with a website and a blog simultaneously. It is best to choose which one to do. The Site, or a Blog.
It is essential to take time to plan your site before you start your actual construction. This aspect of planning is especially important if you intend to make money with your website.
Opt for a free service?
The one who does not want to take the matter very seriously can choose to create a free website.
I did it once but I’ll never repeat that mistake again.
What I did was installed some free sites on a server that allowed me to use ASP files. Had given me some work to program, but were finally working. Everything went well with the sites that came up to get a considerable amount of visits, each. A few months later advertisements and banners began appearing on all my pages. I decided to get them out of my sites. But I lost the access to panel file management of sites. I complained but never received an answer.
The problem is that, when we choose a free service we’re actually limiting the potential of the site and even jeopardize our future. Unfortunately what happened to me is not uncommon. The site occasionally went down and was mostly unavailable on these free servers. Service simply ends without any intimation or warning, eventually lose all the time and work you committed to that site.
Can Internet do something for you?
Can… Yes but How?
With some dedication if you follow the tips, you will find a lot of solutions.
Make Money with Affiliate Programs
This is a way to make money on that when recommending products on your site from other sites, you shall then receive a commission.
There are platforms on which you can subscribe, which will have access to various affiliate programs that will allow you to earn money.
The modern world is changing very fast. Economic control centers are shifting from West to East, from North to South. Economic liberalization is a key driver of this process. The speed with which the smooth movement of capital, the general demographic trends resettlement of people from an isolated rural areas to large cities, has a more rapid pace of life – all these engines also serves liberalization. However, the most important factor in view of the process – this technology.
Industry and IT-technologies are developing faster than ever. The small production, and the ability to adapt quickly to put into operation new technologies quickly, bypass the large-scale “dinosaurs” of the industry, who are committed to long-term investment.
Capital can hardly differ uniform distribution. A recent long-term forecast of HSBC demonstrates that in 2050 the richest countries in terms of GDP will be China, the U.S. and India (in that order). But the richest countries in terms of per capita income (ie, in terms of the wealth of citizens) are Japan, the U.S. and Germany (in that order). Consequently, the rich will remain rich and the poor stay poor, as always happens in our world. Natural resources, particularly water, will cause various conflicts caused by the growth of economic activity.
All of these significant social changes will lead to the emergence of a new middle class, richer than before. The forecast also says that in 2050 the middle class will identify themselves 1-1.5 billion people. These people will be of high purchasing power. They will need access to a variety of public sector services such as education and health care. The above economic activity will require a greater number of communications and IT-services that affect the growth capacity of data processing centers (DPC).
For the first time in human history, geography is not a deterrent. Every person on the planet can communicate with anyone without any restrictions. This has led to the emergence of new applications for communications, such as Facebook and Twitter. It also leads to new and unexpected behaviors of the crowd. The scope and size of social media will continue to grow, and with it the need to grow and the possibility of data centers.
The world continues to move toward the expansion of knowledge, which increases the intensity and speed of information dissemination. It is projected that between 2013 and 2025, the number of students around the world will be doubled, with half of the increase will come from China and India. Mobility of students and increase the popularity of online learning as a way of thinking is changing and getting information, people are more satisfied with the existing networks of global communication.
In the future, we should expect a variety of unexpected effects of a changed way of thinking and take action. The scientific work – a clear confirmation, usually by publication of a scientific edition takes two years, during which a range of treatments, expert evaluation, etc. happens. Why in the world where everyone is waiting for the immediate release of information, there must be a threshold in two years? Does anyone agree to wait for such a long time?
As a rule, the more successful people or companies that have outdated ideas, the more difficult for them will be to produce something new. West and North have always been the leading players in the field of innovation and the capital increase, which began with the industrial revolution in the eighteenth century. In part, this dominance survived to this day. These countries could easily control the flow of ideas and information, which allowed to innovate faster than competitors do.
However, this approach is no longer possible in a world where we are willing to share knowledge with each other. All public data immediately moves from West to East and from North to South. In 2011, the first time in a long history of nearly half of the world’s patents were issued to Chinese applicants. China is an ancient civilization, whose history and thought existed long before most Western civilizations. The Chinese way of thinking is no better and no worse than Western way of thinking, it just has its differences, and as a result of which there are innovations, unexpected for the residents of the West.
The main task for the next thirty or forty years is to quickly grasp all the changes and continuously adapt to new and evolving circumstances. People and companies are able to filter out and use the latest information to prosper, while unable to keep up with the time that will simply drown in information that flows. The core of this process will always be the transmission and processing of data so that the data center in the future has is rosy light.
Unlike desktops, tower servers traditionally use 1U, 2U, 3U, 4U, 5U, 6U or 7U cabinets which are installed on the racks. The numbers give the names of the offices formats that indicate precisely the number of stalls they occupy in the racks. The offices occupy a single 1U bay, the two occupy 2U and 4U occupy four, with one rack holds up to 42 standard size bays:
The servers in 1U format are preferred by dedicated servers hosting service providers, rack space providers and data centers to use because they are very compact (only 4.4 cm), which allows you to install a large number of servers per rack. The main limitations of the format are the limitations with respect to ventilation (due to the small internal space), which complicates the use of processors with high power consumption and the need to use special fonts and coolers, inflating the cost of the projects. In addition to the basic components, usually spare space to install two or four HDDs 3.5″ (according to the arrangement of other components) and a single expansion board installed horizontally with the help of a riser.
Then we have the 2U chassis. They use “normal” fountains and coolers and therefore end up being a little cheaper. The inner space becomes larger and more suitable for 2U servers with two or more processors, or processors that use high consumption. The height is not sufficient to install expansion cards vertically, as in desktop computers, but it is possible to use a riser (like in the case of 1U) using plates or half-height (lower plates, which have half the height of the normal plates).
Finally, we have the larger servers, using 3U or 4U chassis. There are 6U servers, but they are rare: This format is typically used for disk arrays and enclosures for blade servers. Use of a 3U cabinet or greater completely eliminates the problems with space, allowing you to use expansion cards vertically and a large number of installed hard drives in removable bays, but causes the server to occupy more space in the rack, which increases the costs to host it in a data center, where you pay an extra fee per pen used.
Another format that is becoming increasingly popular is the blade servers (blade comes from the word “blade” indicating the restricted format), an ingenious idea to further increase the density of servers and allow sharing of components in common, such as power supplies and optical discs.
The idea is that, instead of having 10 1U servers, with 10 sources (or 20, if redundant sources were used), 20 network cables (each server typically uses two cables, one for the network and one for management or redundancy) plus power cords, cables used by KVM and so on, you can use a single cabinet, with an equivalent number of blade servers.
Each blade is a server complete with processor, memory, disks and network card. Due to the small size, blade servers typically use low power processors and 2.5″ hard drives. Earlier, it was common to use processors from Transmeta and VIA, but they ended up being almost completely replaced by Core 2 Duo processors and updated Xeon versions (in case of Intel) or Athlon X2, Opteron or Phenom (in the case of the AMD), which is much faster, but still relatively inexpensive. The case of hard disks, the disks of 2.5″ are preferred by offering lower access times (although lost with respect to transfer rate), and the power consumption and small dimensions.
Servers in cabinets also exist and account for nearly one quarter of the servers sold, not counting the mounted servers, which use components and enclosures desktop PCs. Besides being the most common in local networks and companies with fewer servers, where the issue of space is not a problem, they are also becoming common in many data centers, breaking the tradition of some racks.
Although occupying a little more space than a 2U enclosure, the towers offer the advantage of the fact that they are cheaper, which in many cases offset the greater use of space. Here we have photos of one of the sections of a data center where towers are used:
Increasingly, the sites are modernizing and trying to keep up on top in search results. However, you need to invest in technology to achieve better positioning. Due to the considerable increase of material available on the web, it is essential to determine its existence so as to remain competitive. A site that is ranking in the search will surely be benefited.
As a definition, we have:
Also known as Robot, Bot or Spider. These are programs used by search engines to explore the Internet and automatically download web content available on web sites. They capture the text of the pages and the links found, and thus enable search engine users to find new pages. Methodically, it exposes content and deems irrelevant content in the source code of sites, and stores the rest in the database. It is a software developed to perform a scan on the internet in a systematic manner through information perceived as relevant to their function. One of the bases of the Search Engines, they are responsible for the indexing of websites and storing them in the database of search engines.
The process that executes a web crawler is called Web crawling or spidering. Many sites, in particular search engines, use crawlers to maintain an updated database. Web crawlers are mainly used to create a copy of all the visited pages for post-processing by a search engine that will index the downloaded pages to provide faster searches. Crawlers can also be used for automated maintenance tasks on a website, such as checking links or validating HTML code. The crawlers can also be used to obtain specific types of information from Web pages, such as mining addresses emails (most commonly for spam).
The search engine crawlers generally seek information about permissions on the content. There are two ways to block a decent crawler from indexing a particular page (and the links contained therein). The first, and most common, is through the robots.txt file. The other way is through the meta robots tag with value “noindex” or “nofollow”, used to not to index (the page itself) and not below (the links in the page), respectively. There is also a third possibility, much less exploited, which is using the rel = “nofollow” for links, indicating that the link in particular should not be followed.
The Robots Perform In Three Basic Actions:
As we can see, behind any search performed on the internet, there are a number of mechanisms that work together to provide a satisfactory result to the user. The process seems somewhat complex, however, nothing noticeable to us mere information seekers.
Too often, my friends ask me if it is possible to use Calendar application on the cloud with the same performance that we get on local computers. My answer is yes, but they are always having more questions.
Based on this premise, I decided to put this article and enjoy some advantages of using a program based on Cloud Services, to give a more comprehensive view for those who still fear to position their commitments in this virtual environment.
Although we find many products in this platform, I will rely only on Google Calendar, which is a set of application programs and the Google Apps that seamlessly integrates with the other members of this family.
Google Calendar is a tool for anyone who needs to manage their time and / or company.
With it, you can use your Personal Organizer and also create Special Schedules: Schedules Projects / Shows / shares / etc. So you better organize your events / commitments and does not pollute your Personal Organizer.
Integration with Gmail
Can integrate your Address Book with Gmail, or from a message you can create an event right into your agenda to be out of it. Using Send Invitation, you can edit an appointment and invite attendees viewing the schedule availability of each without leaving Gmail.
We can schedule appointments with two different time zones, so if you want to know if you can schedule a virtual meeting with a client in another country, just add the name of the city / country to see if the time is during working hours or late / too early or until dawn.
An interesting detail is that, recently Google Calendar is integrated with Hangouts, so you have a video conferencing tool with the ability to speak to voice / video chat with up to 15 Users (Business version) 10 users (Free version).
You can make appointments with email alerts, POP-UP and SMS. With SMS you receive messages on your Mobile / Smartphone informing the proximity of the event (You set the time for these alerts).
Possibility of marking events recursive (With repeat daily, weekly, monthly, or whenever required).
Using interesting calendars like English, Jewish, German, etc.., Time, temperature, moon phases, etc..
Schedules Equipment and Resources
Agendas for features such as rooms, auditoriums and other important equipment for your events. You can register them and when someone in your company try to mark an event on the same day and place, the first to make use of this feature prevents marking the second event.
Integration with Google Maps / Google Street View
When the event takes place at an address outside the company, guests can view the location on Google Maps directly (appears below the address the site / link MAPS clicking it has access to the map). In addition to this, we can also use within the Google Maps Street View and so view the 3D images of the site, this is important for those who want to know the place before you get there.
Compatibility with marking events in MS-Outlook
The Google Calendar is compatible with Outlook Calendar. If a user who has MS-Outlook, mark an event on his calendar and invite you to have Google Calendar, the appointment will appear smoothly on Google Calendar. The converse is true with appointments in Google Calendar with guest users who have MS-Outlook.
Search The Best Time
Opportunity to seek the best time, or rather, a time where all guests can attend an event. In short, you do not need to open the agenda of each guest to set a date / time where everyone can participate, Google Calendar does this for you if you wish.
You can supercharge Google Calendar with LABS (Experimental features), which can be optionally installed by your users and allow new features in Calendar. There are Labs that display the next meeting, Local Time, Annual Planning, Go to a specific date, etc.. If you like any of these things, just keep it installed if it is not enough to remove it, nothing is imposed within the Google environment.
So far we have talked about cloud computing from a business standpoint, but the fact is that, by its rapid adoption and the types of services we consume, the cloud is also present in our daily lives.
Many technological advances reach the homes after their development in the business world since the initial investment in new technology is high. The personal computer is a good example: It began to be seen in homes after years of exclusivity in business. However, the cloud computing solutions model is being taken quickly by the general public as it does not offer an economic barrier to enter and its benefits are obvious:
Easy to access and share data centrally between different people and devices (office computer and at home, smartphone, tablet).
Increased reliability and ease of maintenance of information: No longer rely on a physical medium that we maintain and we do regular backups (we all do that, don’t you?). If the disc on my PC corrupts or if I lose my iPhone, I keep my contacts, photos and important documents in the cloud for better safety.
Access to media (music, videos, etc.) without physically having them either on CD or USB.
Accessing applications without requiring the installation of software on your machine. This not only reduces spending on software but also the hardware requirements to run the applications, since this is running on the server and we see the result. (Media as a Service?).
Avoid Constant Update: No need to constantly install new versions of the programs we use and update our computer or game console to enjoy. The service provider takes care of this while we agree with customers “light” (eg, a browser).
Obviously, the particular use conditions are not the same as a business. Although a company has a motivation and economic power, their risk, possible changes to its business model and regulatory standards in data protection slow down cloud adoption globally. The road to enterprise adoption, nevertheless, you can start with some small steps to minimize risks and costs and serve to strengthen the transition to more ambitious goals. But we’ll talk about this in another post.
Returning to the home, we can classify the services offered by the different cloud types. Some of them are shared with the corporate level while others are private.
Data storage: In the same way that a company uses an infrastructure service (Infrastructure as a Service), the home user also has the same options, which usually offer a free option that can be improved further to premium versions. Some examples of these services: Dropbox, Google Docs, iCloud, eNlight, etc. These systems have the support of developers who integrate their applications with these storage systems. For more advanced users, it is possible to prepare your own private cloud infrastructure with the installation of a hard disk connected to the network (hdd network). This can be interesting if you need to store and share large amounts of information and do not want to pay for premium accounts.
Applications: For years, we enjoyed what is known as Software as a Service without knowing what it was. Applications that formerly residing on our PC and now we access from our browser. Examples are numerous: Google Docs, Picasa, Maps, etc.
Playing Media: Following applying fever “suffix” as a service to almost everything, we will use the term “Media as a Service” that provides media playback on the cloud. This service, unlike previous ones, is almost exclusively for the home user (obviously exclude companies whose business model is based on the distribution or exploitation of resources). We want to enjoy music or videos and do not need to have them in a physical format. This service is revolutionizing the business of producing labels and at the same time allow the diffusion of new independent values. Examples known to all: last.fm, YouTube, Metacafe, etc..
Games: Online games are with us for a while, and web pages or similar flash games, enjoy games that allow increasingly powerful with the installation of a plugin in the browser. Something more interesting in the Cloud Gaming has just landed in India. There are companies that allow you to run the game on the server while the user views the image streaming and lets you play generation game through the browser.
Socialization: We could not miss the social networks in this review (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google Plus and etc.). Our photos, thoughts, contacts and hobbies are stored on remote servers and manage applications through the browser. Probably many people no longer consider doing the same from their computer. The risk of losing everything or not enjoy the updated version of the application would weigh much.
After this brief review we can ensure that we have a part of our lives in the cloud more than we thought… What do you think?
