Tags:#enterprise#Real-Time Web#Trends Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Microblogging represents the first wave in the enterprise. Now the questions is what represents the second wave and how adoption will occur.The issue of the second wave came back up again and again in “Applying The Real-Time Web in the Enterprise,” at the ReadWrite Real-Time Web Summit today.But though the first wave has had its impact, the group has questions about how quick the adoption has been.Those that are adopting social technologies often already use tools like Twitter. For the uninitiated, the technology is a bit mystifying and since it is optional, the adoption is not as great as it could be. The answer is not to clone Twitter but to find the application that really works for the enterprise user. The gap goes beyond microblogging and into the general realm of social technologies. For instance, mashups arose as an example. A woman in human resources may not have any interest in creating a mashup. Her views may change if i is not presented as a mashup and if she is assisted by a business analyst or IT worker who is familiar with the technology.It’s the people with the expertise who have in some ways always been using real-time technologies. IRC channels, for instance, were originally used by IT to keep updated about projects. It’s a tool similar to instant messaging and activity streams of the real-time web, But it had pretty much been inaccessible to most business users. A new generation of user interfaces are changing this dynamic. Tools that had been inaccessible are now fashioned in a manner that users understand. People use the social web. They get the notion of the status update. The enterprise applications that have adopted this style are the technologies that get better use.Machine-to-machine technologies that integrate the social web may help close the gap. These are tools that people are required to use for projects. By adding a “people” element, social applications may have more use for the business person.Still, the real-time web can not be viewed only in terms of the office person working on their desktop.Such a large percentage of the workforce are out in the field. Their use of mobile devices for establishing geo-presence is an area that should further develop, especially with the continued adoption of smart phones.

CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Wednesday asked the government how the Vijay Dashmi speech of RSS leader Mohan Bhagwat was broadcast live last year while Prasar Bharati asked Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar to “reshape” his Independence Day speech on Tuesday. “The Vijay Dashmi speech of RSS sarsanghchalak is shown live on DD. On that there is no objection. He is a non-elected person, who is not answerable to the people, but that speech is telecast,” Mr. Yechury pointed out, alleging that the government wants people to see “only one point of view.” “I don’t think even during the Emergency any elected chief minister was not allowed to speak during Independence Day or Republic Day,” Mr. Yechury added. He called for all non-BJP states to come together to fight this trend. “This is a precursor to an authoritarian onslaught. If other non-BJP states do not join to resist this attack then centre state relationship as enshrined in our constitution is under threat our federalism is in danger.” AIR and DD headquarters in Delhi maintained a studied silence leaving the Doordarshan Kendra, Agartala, to defend itself. The Agartala unit issued a statement “vehemently refuting” CPI (M)’s allegations. “On August 15, 2017, Doordarshan gave wide coverage to the Chief Minister’s Independence Day programme and telecast a report running to 29 minutes and 45 seconds. Out of which the Hon’ble Chief Minister’s speech coverage was for 12 minutes.” read more

MaharshiTwitterSuperstar Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi has made decent collection at the worldwide box office in the second week, taking its 15-day gross total closer to Rs 200 crore mark in the global market.Maharshi clashed with the new release ABCD – American Born Confused Desi, which snatched some screens from it in its second week. The Mahesh Babu starrer witnessed huge drop on its second Friday, but it showed some improvements in its collection over the weekend following the negative word of mouth for the new movie. It made better collection than the Allu Sirish starrer.The Vamshi Paidipally-directed film showed drop again on its second Monday, but managed to remain strong on the following weekdays. Maharshi is estimated to have collected approximately Rs 31.67 crore gross at the worldwide box office in its second week and its 15-day total business has reached Rs 182.12 crore gross.Maharshi needs to rake in around Rs 18 crore to surpass Rs 200 crore gross mark in the global market and it will be the second film of Mahesh Babu to achieve this feat. But the movie is clashing with two other new releases like Sita and Evadu Takkuva Kadu from May 24. It should be seen whether the film will surpass the mark or not in its third week.Dil Raju, Potluri V Prasad and Ashwini Dutt have reportedly invested Rs 100 crore on its production and promotion. Maharshi fetched them around Rs 100 crore from the sale of its theatrical rights, while its satellite, music and digital rights got them Rs 50 crore. The movie made a decent table profits for them before its release.Maharshi is estimated to have earned Rs 98.04 crore for its global distributors in two weeks. The movie has recovered 100 percent of the investments and good profit shares to its distributors in some areas. However, it is yet to return the investments to the distributors in a few regions. It is expected to fetch it in the coming days. read more
People walk on a crosswalkReutersEven though IT job prospects may be a tad bleak in India right now, Indian IT companies are taking on board quite a few employees in the US. Indian firms are said to have created over 113,000 jobs in the US and also invested $18 billion in the country.The details appeared in the Confederation of Indian Industry’s report “Indian Roots, American Soil,” which also said that these jobs were created by about 100 Indian firms in mainland US and Puerto Rico. These 100 firms totally employ 113,423 people across 50 states of the US, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, the report said, according to the Press Trust of India.Meanwhile, in the US, the top five states in which these firms generate employment are:New Jersey — 8,572 jobsTexas — 7,271 jobsCalifornia — 6,749 jobsNew York — 5,135 jobsGeorgia — 4,554 jobsSpeaking about these figures, Indian Ambassador to the US Navtej Sarna said that Indian firms play an important part in the US’ economy and make valuable contributions to it. “The presence and reach of Indian companies continue to grow each year as they invest billions of dollars and create jobs across the United States,” he added.Meanwhile, CII director general Chandrajit Banerjee also explained how these numbers prove that India and the US work closely in terms of business and help each other’s economy.After CII released the report, Congressman Pete Sessions said that India and the US’ relations have continued to grow under President Donald Trump’s administration and that the nation hopes to see better ties in the future. “I am glad to see, as CII’s event today proves, bonds between our nations both commercial and strategic – continue to grow stronger,” Sessions said.Two of the Indian firms that have made quite a mark in the US are the Tata Group and Infosys. The Bengaluru-based IT giant had, in May, said that Infosys intended to hire 10,000 employees in the US and also set up four technology hubs in the country.”Infosys is committed to hiring 10,000 American technology workers over the next two years to help invent and deliver the digital futures for our clients in the United States,” then CEO Vishal Sikka had said in a statement. Employees of Infosys Technologies Limited walk in the campus of the company’s headquarters in Bangalore on April 13, 2017. Indian software giant Infosys has pledged to return USD2 billion to shareholders this year as it reported subdued growth in profits for the fourth quarter.MANJUNATH KIRAN/AFP/Getty ImagesHowever, with Sikka’s exit as the CEO and MD, questions have been raised on whether Infosys would go ahead with the US plans. The former CEO is known to have worked closely with the firm’s clients in the US and also had a team of high-level executives in the country, mostly based in California.Analysts believe that the impact may not be that huge, but the process is likely to see a slowdown. “Local hiring in the US is inevitable. It is not something Infosys is doing differently; all other IT forms are doing it. Sikka accelerated the process. But the process may get delayed,” Pareekh Jain, IT analyst, HfS Research India told Business Standard.The Bangalore-based firm had also announced in July that it would open a new technology and innovation hub in North Carolina and hire 2,000 employees at the facility by the year 2021. The North Carolina hub will be the second one of the four hubs, the first being Indiana. read more

Historically Black colleges and universities have served African-American communities for 150-plus years, but they are frequently underrepresented, according to filmmaker Stanley Nelson. Furthermore, he said, many stories are left untold in mainstream media. Nelson is attempting to change that condition with a new film, Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities.The film was shown Dec. 1 at Morgan State University inside the School of Global Journalism and Communication. In 2015, Nelson debuted the film The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution at Morgan. His newest film chronicles the long, complex history of HBCUs and their impact on post-Civil War years and the days of the Civil Rights Movement. The director is touring HBCUs around the country as part of a multiplatform project called “HBCU Rising.” The goal is to drive dialogue inspired by the film among a variety of audiences.Nelson told Dallasweekly.com that the tour is necessary because many people may not be aware of the vital histories of their institutions.“Many students and even alumni are not aware of the deep history of how and why HBCUs were created and the foundation for success they provided for African-Americans,” he said.On Nov. 27, Morgan State staged its Founders Day on the sesquicentennial date that the former training school for pastors was established. Five former slaves, said President David Wilson, in 1864 planted the seeds for the future Carnegie-level urban public research university he now leads. Morgan is distinguished among HBCUs – and many predominantly White campuses – for producing record numbers of Fulbright Scholars – 205 since 1952. Furthermore, 11 representatives from Nigerian universities attended the milestone event to deliver proclamations of congratulations and to sign memorandums of understanding in order to create exchange programs. Morgan is also renowned for its engineering school, NFL stars and media workers that include New York Times sports columnist Bill Rhoden and April Ryan, White House correspondent with American Urban Radio Networks and CNN contributor.Nelson has been on tour since Nov. 14 and has visited Dillard University in Louisiana and Clark- Atlanta University. Future stops include North Carolina Central University, Howard University and South Carolina State University, one of the institutions featured in the film because of the Orangeburg Massacre of 1968, a civil rights protest that resulted in the deaths of three people and the wounding of 27 others.“Eight years in the making of writing the proposal and gathering grants, we are telling a story that has never been told; 200 years of history in 85 minutes,” Stacey L. Holman, one of the film’s producers, told a Florida A&M University audience Nov. 2. “It was a very daunting task, but no one else was going to tell it. You never hear about the entire experience of black colleges.” Said Nelson, “We appreciate the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s support and the partnership on the ground with local public television and radio stations to make this tour possible.”Tell Them We Are Rising will air worldwide Feb. 19, 2018 on PBS.The writer is a student in the Morgan State University School of Global Journalism and Communication. read more
