Graphics and Analysis : Make winning strategy in sports using technology

We know that we can not predict result of any match or individual performance specially in international events like Olympics. However knowing your rival can make you assure that you can give tough competition to the contestant. Yes, i am talking about use of technology in sports, but this is not about hawk-eye technology or 3-D action replay.

Sportsperson works hard on ground, using different training methods. Now most of the players using optimal training methods using technologies. When a players make strategies to win in, while considering weather, crowd and other performers history.As we know now a days IT plays vital role in every field and of course it will play more beneficial role in sport sector  Now a days they can watch high definition videos of their competitors and predict upcoming level of fight. This is helping players and standards of performance is going higher. Here is the card : can be learn about habits of your opponents, his strong hands or weakness, does these things can make a difference. If we go into deeper side of insight we can collect fitness data, information associated with players nutrition. This can increase accuracy rather than manual analysis practices by coaches or player himself.

With the help of highly compiled and accurate graphics and data a player can work towards specific areas, for example Micheal Philips has taken a treatment( i come to know through newspapers) specifically to loose some muscles by which he can swim easily. A bowler or discuss throw athlete can analyse actual trajectory angle which can enhance performance.

Lets talk about sports statics, as we are talking about analysis. The traditional sports statics includes date of encounter, players name their role and match result. However, this should also include some more information's like direction of wind. Pitch condition, weather report, players medical report and every point (for example goal in football) should be examine and categories technically. Really results can be amazing. The level of game and competition will go higher, the games will become tougher. Initial benefit can be taken by teams who will adopt the technology as soon as possible. I hope India will be the first.

The largest number of delegates ever from India, performance in London Olympics(6 medals) and position of India in international sports brining hope of something exciting in 2016 Olympics, one of the biggest sporting events.

Olympic games in India were not a catchy event due to drought of medals, number of participants were low, sponsors were not interested and media coverage was also not appropriate.  A big gap of 16 years from 1980 to 1996 results loss of interest in these games. Yes, Leander Paes is the person who won Bronze in 1996 and become flag barrier of enthusiasm for big event in India.  From there India is regularly bringing medals with increasing ranking among other countries.

We all Indians want more number of medals, however the participating in game is greater then win. Increasing number of participants showing reform in sports and sports becoming an career option for youth.

World Environment Day : Zero Tolerance for Illegal Wildlife Trade

When Prime Minister of India Mr Narendra Modi was taking with me on "Mann ki baat", he mentioned about 5th June: the world environment day. The theme for 2016 is "Fight against the Illegal Trade in Wildlife" kept by United Nations.The illegal wildlife trade is one of the biggest threats  and Wildlife crime is increasing just like drug trafficking, human smuggling and money laundering.Number of endangered species is decreasing day by day. It is become favourite business of organised criminal groups. Black market got better option to earn money easily due to insufficient vigilance, laws related to wildlife crimes,Corruption, toothless laws and weak judicial systems. This is not directly related to wildlife crimes, it can be extended to exploitation of natural resources without any control. These type of activities somehow affects wildlife. As per worldwildlife fund says 2,500 elephants was seized in the 13 largest seizures of illegal ivory in 2011. Poaching threatens the last of our wild tigers that number around 3,890.

Question arises, how illegal trade take birth. Answer is from legal reasons. legally using timber for furniture or building materials, trade of exotic flowers, plants or pets, ‘wild’ ingredients sourced for medicines and cosmetics are legal and clothes, shoes or bags made from, for example, reptile skins are legal as well as famous. Sometimes people take these this as status symbol. Demand of these items are very high which leads to illegal activities. Rhino horn, elephant ivory, reptiles skim and tiger products continue to command high prices among consumers.

 This is coincidence or not, I don't know. But in same year Ramgopal Verma is bringing movie Veerappan. Veerappan was a dacoit and involved in illegal wildlife trading.He  became challenge for government system. when veerappan killed, organised crime in india moved towards this business. some news came across us like Seizure on 1st Feb. 2005, by Delhi Police - Raid on the basement of a warehouse in Patel Nagar. The haul consisted of:
39 leopard skins (including one snow leopard), 2 tiger skins, 42 otter skins, 3kg of tiger claws,14 tiger canines, 10 tiger jaw bones, About 135 kg of porcupine quills, 60 kg of tiger and leopard paws, 20 small pieces of bone that appear to be tiger and leopard 'floating' clavicle bones. and Blackbuck poaching case of Salmaan Khan.

There are lots of news to share regarding these types of crime, the need of the hour is to realize and make tuff laws. Make awareness to the local people, because they are the persons who can help government to stop these activities, non other military can do that.

Business transformation to achieve better outcome.

What does business transformation means? 
In general words, organisational change in business environment can be termed as business transformation, that can help to grow it with current or upcoming challenges and triggers outcome to new level.

Why we need Business transformation? 
Business is highly dependent on some specific drivers like technology and energy costs, trends and the challenges of regulatory compliance and many more. These drivers are dynamic in nature, due to which business strategies can never be static and should be changed accordingly. Organisations should be flexible for such type of situations with correct strategic vision.

What is correct approach for transformation? 
Approach for transformation includes mergers and acquisitions, business process outsourcing, and the introduction of shared service centres, enterprise software, and initiatives motivated by sustainability requirements.
Transformation depends on many factors like organisational structure, core product or services, culture, values, standards and technical feasibility. Believing IT can be an effective driver of business transformation, turn IT architecture into business strategy. We can not say this is total re-engineering of business. This is a gradual innovation to align with customers. Transformation can be end-to-end but it should be more specific for each and every phase.

How transformation helps organisation outcome? 
This is not a hard and fast rule that business transformation management yields better success rate, however it always helps for business optimization that leads to operating model refinement. This work as refreshment for board, stalk-holders and staff. This also helps to sustain current success rate, outcome, sharpen its focus, meet service level agreements (SLAs) and business objectives.

New Event Management Company in Pune

I am back after long time for you guys. This time again with an informative post. I am staying in Pune these days as working in Infosys Pune. I found this city very interesting in terms of behaviour of local persons as well as development in comparison to other cities. Pune is very beautiful and best place to live in India.

Growth of any city brings two major challenges among us:
1. Time saving
2. Money saving

When we talk about enjoyment with family mostly during family events, these factors become more crucial. I come to know with this situation when my friend was celebrating first birthday of his daughter. He was worried about that event, because he was busy in arranging all things when his guest was in the party. He missed enjoyment because he was not able to give time and spent more money because all thing was arranged in hurry, without considering price of things.

 There are so many event management companies in Pune, but not reachable to all, not have reliability as they should have. So, I decided to provide a best blend of traditional and new generation management services to middle level society as well as high level society.

Swamini Events is a world class event management company having number of hands to handle your event in better way which will help you to enjoy your moments which you do not want to miss. I will bring each event here on my blog that we will take care, our success stories and seek your suggestions to bring smiles on the face of Pune.

Make in India and IT industry : software products, services and future of india

We know sea contains tremendous opportunities and resources, just like sea, we can determine possibilities in software industries. Emerging verticals (retail, healthcare, utilities) and increasing dependency on information technology are producing threshold. IT sector is majorly driven by products and services where services cover major share like data processing, consultancy services, software supply services, business and management consultancy services, market research services, technical testing and analysis services. This industry can transform any countries economy and can generate millions of employment.

With emergence of software industry India got special recognition in the world. The Indian manufacturing sector has the highest IT spending followed by automotive, chemicals and consumer products industries. The IT-BPM sector constitutes 8.1% of the country’s GDP. 60% of firms use India for testing services, IT-BPM revenues are expected to reach USD 118 Billion in 2014. The IT industry has more than 15,000 firms delivering 3.1 Million jobs; of which 1000+ are large firms.

According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report In terms of software revenue among emerging markets China topped the list with $2,738 million, India was ranked 5th among the emerging markets in 2011. The Indian IT industry has been primarily identified with software services but lacking in product market, According to the industry body NASSCOM, the revenue from the software product segment currently stands at $2.2 billion out of $100 billon. According to one estimate, Apple earns $368 out of every $560 iPhone. In contrast, Foxcon's margin on every iPhone that it manufactures for Apple is less than $15. IT products market is dominated by global players like Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, IBM etc. Now they are also moving towards providing services, which is quit alarming.

SMAC (social, mobility, analytics, cloud) market will become next trajectory for any industry player in upcoming decade. India need to retain success in this sector as it evolved on global level and can get higher position due to large pool of skilled engineers and growing companies. Traditional business strongholds will make way for new geographies, there would be new customers and more and more of SMEs will go for IT application and services.
“We have companies that have shown they have what it takes to be global leaders – InMobi challenges Google in mobile advertising, and Fusion Charts is a preferred source for visualization tools.” Professor Rishikesha T. Krishnan

India need such type of companies in India because with the increase in number of user of software product, new technologies like cloud computing there will be new challenges and changing business needs. Indian government make in India Campaign can provide software industry a right direction, which will also focus on product with services.

The Government of India is actively providing fiscal incentives and liberalizing norms for FDI and raising capital abroad. There are also other initiatives by government that inspires Indian companies for product startups like Indian Software Product Industry Round Table (ispirt). National Policy on Information Technology 2012 aims to increase revenues of IT and BPM industry to USD 300 Billion by 2020 and expand exports to USD 200 Billion by 2020.

There are more possibility to explore in software industry, it’s time to take lions step towards make in India to made in India journey.
