On the launch of MailScan's latest version, Mr. Govind RammurthyMD & CEO at eScan stated, "It is very important for all the corporate and enterprises to secure their mail servers. Email communications which most of the time carry confidential information have to be seen that they securely reach their destinations and at the same time the mails that are entering the organization also have to be checked against viruses, spam, etc. to secure the network. MailScan 6.9 does that and more at the mails server gateway."

Tabhane breaks his own national mark to win State championship gold


         Stops the clock at 25.62 sec to win Rink 3 (300m) race


Virar: Thane’s Nikhilesh Tabhane continued to prove that he is miles ahead of competition when he broke his own national record in Rink 3 time trial (300m) in Inline Category to clinch the gold medal in the Maharashtra State Roller Skating Championship at the Ameya Classic Club over the weekend.

The 22-year-old, who has been adopted by the Ameya Classic Club for further training, broke his own previous record by 00.20 sec to stop the close at 25.62 sec. Tabhane’s domination was so complete that the second best skater in this category – Vikram Ingle of Pune -- finished in 26.28 sec.
Having won three gold medals in the just concluded Thane District championship, Tabhane was confident of a strong showing on his home turf but surprised even himself with the timing. “I was confident of winning the gold. But I wasn’t at my 100 per cent as I am looking to peak at the senior nationals in December at this same venue. But I got a very good start and just kept on going,” he said after the race.
“My preparations for the nationals are going very well and I hope that I can break the 25.50 barrier next month,” Tabhane added.
Tournament organiser and director of Ameya Classic Club Grishma Patil was happy that the world class facility was providing talented athletes like Tabhane an opportunity to improve themselves. “We saw Nikhilesh performing at the senior nationals last year and felt that this boy could bring glory to India if he receives proper training and support. We therefore decided to sponsor him completely and shifted him to Virar as there is no better skating rink in India,” she said.

Computing Systems Research Roadmap for Joint Research Cooperation between India and Europe Announced

The EU-India consortium led project "EUINCOOP" announces the successful completion of the 'Computing Systems' research roadmap process. The project aimed at  identifying key topics for EU-India cooperation in Computing Systems and proposes a joint funding mechanism.
 
In Sept 2011, EUINCOOP, an initiative funded by the European Commission under Framework Programme 7 (FP7) and executed by a  consortium of research institutes and technology consultant organizations, to stimulate and initiate research cooperation between India and Europe, was assumed with an objective to identify common research challenges through a 'consensus building model'.
 
Led by the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH), a leading centre for research and development in Greece with many years of participation in EU-funded research, the EU-INCOOP consortium includes: European partners - The Open Group, a worldwide industry organization which has more than 300 members representing all the largest system and software vendors and KYOS, a Swiss consultancy specializing in advanced computing and networking technologies; and from India, ITSMA, an IT Association for SMEs; the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), the premier R&D organization of the Indian Department of Electronics and Information Technology and a leading centre for supercomputing in India; and the Indian Institute of Science, one of India's top institutes for technology research and higher education with more than two thousand active researchers and a 100 years of research experience.
 
Through a series of structured workshops and interactive sessions between the best in class academia, industry and research institutes of Europe and India during the past 23 months, communication was established between leading researchers from both the regions. Thanks to the extensive sessions deliberated by the experts from the field the project is successful in framing a research roadmap identifying the key topics of research that could be jointly explored by both the regions to address the societal needs and applications on the terms of mutual benefit.  The participating experts included highly experienced and visionary academicians and industry heads from HiPEAC (Europe), TU Dortmund-Germany, IISc - Bangalore, Intel and  CDAC to name a few.
 
Software for big data, software for emerging platforms and green computing are the major areas that have been identified as the key topics for cooperation. With India leading the software scenario and Europe leading the research scenario in energy efficient parallel processors, multi core, and many core heterogeneous computing, experts opined that it would be perfect blend of topics that can complement the strengths of both the regions and would add value to the expertise of each region. The experts from India and Europe also commonly agreed that the future of next generation computing systems depended on a balanced approach towards hardware and software partition to develop energy efficient, faster processor speeds and scalable computing systems.
 
The project has disseminated its objectives in focussed conferences, workshops and seminars such as the HiPC- Bangalore, HiPEAC Europe, and ICT2013 Vilnius. The project intends to echo the excerpts of the research roadmap to the Indian funding agency, the department of Electronics and Information Technology (DIETY) and propose a joint funding mechanism with Europe as a culmination to the project.

Foxconn Utilizes More Factories for the Content Provider, LeTV to Produce LCD TV

 
Foxconn, world's leading manufacturer of computer components and systems, has recently started using its plants to produce LCD TVs for China-based content provider LeTV and with the addition; the LCD TVs' shipment waiting period has been reduced from three weeks to only one week.
 
By adding Foxconn's Yantai plants, the LCD TVs' shipment time to consumers in Northern China is expected to be shortened.
 
In addition to Yantai, Foxconn is also using its plants in Shenzhen and Hengyang, China to produce LCD TVs for LeTV, allowing shorter shipment times to Southern and Western China. Foxconn cooperated with LeTV in May 2013, supplying large-size LCD TVs for the China content provider's own-brand LCD TV business. China-based vendor Xiaomi has also recently released an own-brand LCD TV, trying to take some demand away from LeTV.

Foxconn to Provide Services to Help Apple Directly Ship Products in China


Foxconn, world's leading manufacturer of computer components and systems, is expected to provide services in the future to help Apple sell products in China and will ship Apple products directly from its plants to the domestic market.
 
Foxconn and Apple also have reached an agreement with China's customs authorities and already started directly shipping a small amount of products to the China market in September 2013. Since China has already become a major market for the IT industry, Apple has been aggressively trying to expand its presence in the country. But Apple needs support, and it is expected to rely on Foxconn to help it provide logistic and after-sale maintenance services in China.
 
The direct shipments will reduce import taxes, and may reduce the prices for Apple products in China. In addition to China, Foxconn has also been trying to copy such a direct shipment business model to other countries such as Indonesia and Brazil.

Foxconn was established in 1974 and has grown to become the largest ODM in the world with nearly 1,000,000 employees and revenues in excess of USD 100 billion.
