IPR Protection in a PES Engagement

For most technical organizations today, outsourcing software product engineering services (PES) to technology firms has increased for economic and strategic reasons. A myriad of challenges such as higher cost of acquisition, demand for diversified technology resources for a shorter period and dynamic delivery models at a fraction of margin has forced organizations to look for outsourcing software PES to other technology companies. This enables the organization to remain focused on its strategic business goals while benefitting from PES best practices and sustainable delivery models.

The advantage of outsourcing PES to a technology vendor is the access to skilled architects with knowledge of the latest operating environments, project managers with experience in operating in a global environment, and teams skilled in the latest software product engineering methodologies.

Introduction to VLSI

We no longer have huge computers made of vacuum tubes that take up an entire room, and have the ability to do about 360 multiplications of 10 digit numbers in a second. Modern day computers are smaller, faster, and cheaper and more power efficient. With laptops, tablets and smart phone flooding the markets, the progress every second is obvious. The new domain of computing was ushered in by multiple advancements in electronic miniaturization and the semiconductor transistor by Bardeen in 1947-48, and then the Bipolar Transistor by Shockley in 1949.

Since the invention of the first Integrated Circuit(IC) by Jack Kilby in 1958, our ability to pack more and more transistors onto a single chip has been very rapid. In the early 1960s, low density fabrication processes classified under Small Scale Integration (SSI) in which transistor count was limited to about 10.

Role of BI/Data Warehousing in the Organization

Most organizations, big or small, are faced with the challenge of accounting for and managing their data. The type of data includes financial data, personnel data, sales, business, accounting and endless data that is churned out on a daily basis. Organizations struggle with managing this data, understanding it and putting it to good use. Business Intelligence (BI) tools allow companies to deal with this enormous amount of information, and are widely being used to transform businesses and help companies gain the competitive advantage.

Having the right information, at the right time, and in the right format can be the difference between growing as a strategic and tactical company as opposed to a disconnected and stunted business.

Managing E-Waste – Green IT

Electronic (E-) waste is a rapidly growing environmental problem across the globe. In India, the e-waste management assumes greater significance not only due to the generation of our own waste but also dumping of E-waste, particularly computer waste, from developed countries. With high extensity of using computers and electronic equipments and people dumping old electronic goods for new ones, the amount of E-waste generated has been steadily increasing. At present, Bangalore alone generates about 8000 ton of computer waste annually, and in the absence of proper disposal, they find their way to scrap dealers. According to a new report from the United Nations, large amounts of e-waste would end up in developing countries by 2015. The report estimates a 500% growth over the next 10 years in computer waste in India alone. Now that is some frightening news.
