ZSL supports Patent Reform Act of 2009


Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Patrick Leahy, calls for Patent Reform

At an executive business meeting, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy made an opening statement encouraging progress on patent reform and urging support for the Patent Reform Act of 2009.

“The hearing last week demonstrated there is wide consensus among participants in the patent system, academics, and Senators on this Committee that Patent Reform is necessary,” Leahy stated. “It should also be apparent, at least in my view, that the time for posturing has ended, and the time for reaching agreement has arrived.”

He further stated, “I hope that the time has come for Congress to act.”

The Patent Reform Act of 2009 was scheduled to be considered by the Judiciary Committee this week, but has been delayed for one week in agreement with the Committee’s rules. Markup and debate will take place on Thursday, March 26.

IT automation: the way ahead


India, February 02nd, 2009 - IT automation helps reduce costs and raise efficiency levels. It is a matter of educating business users and decision-makers about the benefits of doing so.

Automating IT is likely to give a fillip to Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) efforts. This helps speed-up and simplifies identification and resolution of SOA problems, automates SOA management, and promotes management throughout the SOA development lifecycle. Automation and SOA are two technologies that help IT to deliver services to a business faster. Moreover, automation also helps to bring in compliance, which is also an important challenge that CXOs are focusing on.

Shiv Kumar, Executive Vice President–Technology Strategy and Innovation, Zylog Systems, pointed out, "In recent years, enterprises have increasingly shown interest in adopting the SOA approach for their enterprise architecture, by integrating disparate systems and structuring their applications as assemblies of smaller modules or services to maximize automation. The reusability of the existing IT assets and responding faster to the business requirements drive SOA initiatives in coming years among the small to mid-sized enterprises." Read More

Web 2.0 is pushing up Storage Demands



Why is storage important to Web 2.0 companies?

Web 2.0 platform has typically been viewed as a venue for users developing wikis and social networking sites with the data stored in the cloud. Yet, the bottom line remains: Web 2.0 based solutions enable users to get extensive functionality from any browser. Web 2.0 companies treat their users as co-developers of the business content which demands massive storage due to the nature of the data. The users of Web 2.0 platforms expect the information availability 24 x 7.

How will Web 2.0 companies leverage it?

More enterprise applications will reap the benefits of Web 2.0 and Rich Internet Applications(RIAs) to drive the innovation and collaboration internally and externally. So the User generated content and the unstructured data (files) are growing much faster than structured data (databases), and capacity-optimized storage for files is growing much faster than traditional filer-based storage.

Top 10 enterprise technologies for 2009


CHENNAI, INDIA: Shiv Kumar, Executive Vice President, Business Development, Zylog Systems Ltd, presents his perspective of the top 10 enterprise technologies for 2009.

The following is a sneak peek into the technologies that have been shaped by the demands of continuous changes in 2008. As the new technologies emerge, adapt, and evolve, each technology will impact the community and other emerging technologies. As a result, many new opportunities will be unleashed by the creative combination and collaboration of technology solutions.

The companies and clients that will benefit the more are those organizations that partner with solution providers that can leverage many or all of these technologies effectively and efficiently. With a harsh economic climate, companies need to invest in technologies that have rapid tangible returns, flexibility to adapt to the changing demands, and the ability to integrate with other emerging technologies.

Know your technologies and stay ahead of the curve in 2009!

Green IT

Green information technology (Green IT) is one of the fastest-growing initiatives in the industry. Green IT is rapidly moving from marketing and PR hype to reality in 2009 as manufacturers design, produce and distribute energy-efficient technology products. Green IT initiatives initially received recognition for the good intentions to reduce power consumption as an environmentally friendly initiative.

However, as many businesses struggled with economic challenges in 2008, the substantial reduction of power consumption was measured in reduced expense as a direct result of lower energy costs. Once the value of Green IT was measured in both bottom line savings as well as environmentally conscious contributions, businesses began to demand investments that will deliver sustained incremental savings.

Green It is not just an earth friendly solution, but it is also a competitive technology for profitable business. Reduce costs are earned costs. Green IT enables the CIO to provide measured cost savings contributions to the company bottom line.


Recycle Accelerator

In keeping with the theme of earth friendly IT solutions, there has been a continuously growing awareness of the necessity for self-governance and producer responsibility when it comes to recycling excess and obsolete electronic and technology devices. The refurbishment and reuse of used computer equipment has enabled some global regions to enter the technology age at a rapid pace, acquiring the retired assets from other regions. This has created new problems for individuals and organizations as it pertains to protecting the private information stored on their drives.

Some products are the byproduct of tough love, unable to be salvaged or restored by refurbishing. These products may be recycled for materials. The materials may be used in future production. The goal of the last decade has been to minimize the amount of retired technology assets that end up in a landfill, mountain of trash, or a Sixty Minutes episode.

While the focus has been on proper handling, refurbishing, and resale of technology products, there is a significant shift of awareness that has taken place in 2008. Technology is now being developed and deployed to empower the very recyclers and recycling process that is intended to mitigate the trashing of technology products and encourage responsible actions.

Technology is being used to connect the constituents in the process, improve routing, and automate many of the manual processes for greater profit. The result is less hazardous waste, developing new business opportunities, and new revenue streams for the participants. Recycling initiatives offer ways to manage e-waste effectively; recycling solutions for obsolete mobile and wireless handhelds, personal computing devices, monitors, printers and ink cartridges.


Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is simply a buzzword used to repackage grid computing and utility computing, both of which have existed for decades. It is a style of computing in which massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided as a service, using Internet technologies to support multiple external customers. Cloud computing offerings are often described in terms such as "on-demand services", "Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS)", and "Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)".

Cloud computing is often used to sort through enormous amounts of data. In fact, Google has an initial edge in cloud computing precisely because of a need to produce instant, accurate results for millions of incoming search inquiries every day, parsing through the terabytes of Internet data cached on its servers. Microsoft Azure and Amazon's EC2 are the leading Clouds to be watched in 2009.


Next-Gen Virtualization (NGV)

Virtualization technology received tremendous recognition and increasing adoption as a result of various economic benefits. Benefits include the need for fewer physical systems, lower energy costs, and less overhead management.

As businesses saw the first generation virtualization technologies value in 2008, the next generation of virtualization products and tools will enable businesses to realize the benefits of systems self-healing, self-managing, enterprise cloud computing, where applications are automatically guaranteed the right quality of service at the lowest operating cost by harnessing internal and external computing capacity.


Enterprise Web 2.0

Enterprise Web 2.0 describes the introduction and implementation of Web 2.0 technologies within the enterprise, including Rich Internet Applications (RIAs), Social Computing, Mash-ups, Software as a Service (SaaS), and using the web as a general platform.


Communications 2.0

Communication 2.0 is all about convergence of various communication and collaboration tools and platforms such as VoIP, VoWi-Fi, Wi-MAX, Web and Video Conferencing, Enterprise Social Computing, Presence, and IM Management. Communication 2.0 delivers cost effective internal communication and enables businesses to connect communities that encompass employees, customers, partners and others "outside the firewall". This empowers users to tap into both internal and external knowledge, and use that knowledge to accelerate innovation.

The technology will mature in 2009, forcing companies to look at all their collaboration points in a strategic way and tie them to business goals and processes. This new approach will transform them from toys to tools and will establish their place and value in the new order.


Storage

As the digitization of data continues to increase, the need for storage, de-duplication technologies have a primary role in helping enterprises manage the rampant growth of storage through the virtual infrastructure growth to meet the compliance and regulatory situations. We can expect products with the integration of Fibre Channel and Ethernet. Web 2.0 and Social networking will be the significant drivers of data storage and content security.


Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) promises to deliver exceptional flexibility and cost savings to IT by defining a methodology for the use and re-use of IT functions and business processes. Services are software components, constructed so that they can be easily linked with other software components at the enterprise level. The idea behind these services is to express the technology in dissected format that business people can understand rather than as an arcane application such as ERP or CRM.

SOA is focused on bridging the gap between business processes and IT through well defined, business-aligned services, developed along the established design principles, frameworks, patterns & methods. However, SOA is still at the early or pilot stage in several organizations, and businesses are still in the process of learning how to implement it so that it fulfills its potential for accomplishing desired business goals in the coming years.


Business Process Management (BPM)

The accelerated Legacy Modernization and IT infrastructure optimization processes will drive the BPM adoption faster in 2009. Businesses are looking for ways to improve the work and data flow so manpower resources can perform better, faster, and with less cost than the competition. Improved performance powers competitive differentiation. Business processes and rules management systems are designed to separate process and rules logically so they can be managed independently with agility.


Location Based Computing

The latest mobile and wireless handheld devices are powered with Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Location based applications can drastically improve the customer experience. GPS data availability will drive the creation and adoption of 'Location-Aware' business applications and enterprise mash-ups in 2009. Leaders in hardware include the iPhone, Blackberry, or Google Android, all with the ability to share location information and retrieve location specific data about local services, other people, events, sales, gas prices, and anything else that adds a new dimension to mobile applications and revenue growth opportunities.


Information Security

Web 2.0 technologies adoption by business paved new ways for the cyber criminals to attack the business network and applications in 2008. The exploitation of vulnerabilities in the database, poorly secured web apps, widgets and gadgets will be much greater in the foreseeable future. The use of sophisticated Trojan, keylogger, and rootkit crimeware that targets financial institutions and consumers will require better Information Security policies and products that can be constantly updated to keep pace with emerging threats. Information security concerns include identity theft, wiping data from retired hard drives, data access, and the risks of many networks.

Technology experts realize the constant challenges to keep pace with evolving technology and growing demands. Keeping track of the hottest technologies that can change your business, boost your bottom line, and simultaneously improve performance is essential to continuous success.

Keep this for convenient reference and a constant reminder of technologies to watch in 2009!

Right Partners, Right Results


An Exclusive Interview with Shiv Kumar, EVP of ZSL Inc., featured in CRN Magazine.

Edison, NJ, 24th July, 2008 - Global IT services firm ZSL Inc. (2007 CRN Fast Growth No. 45), provides onshore, offshore and near-shore technology solutions and services to enterprises and technology companies worldwide. Based in Edison, N.J., ZSL works with some of the world's leading innovative ISVs and software-enabled businesses, ranging from start-ups to established industry leaders.

CRN caught up with EVP Shiv Kumar—last seen accepting ZSL's Top Technology Practices Award for Excellence In Virtualization at the 2008 VARBusiness 500 Awards—to talk about the company's unique, collaborative style and its commitment to innovation.

CRN: ZSL functions in a very collaborative manner.

SHIV KUMAR: Yes. From 2003 onward we've worked on Get IT Together, primarily with [other] VARs and ISVs in the North American and European market. Our formula is to collaborate with the right partner and work with them to bring products and services to market. We've looked at solution providers that went out from the dot-com bust and that had expertise we could tap. Those who were smart and understood they couldn't offer complete solutions, we determined we could collaborate with them. We looked at application developers, for example, and asked ourselves, "What could we do with that?" At the time, there were similar economic challenges to today. We extended more into Europe in 2004. We are using such a collaborative approach today. One-third of our revenue is generated through collaboration.

CRN: So you can focus on what you do best, and your partner can tackle other aspects of a project where it has expertise.

KUMAR: We can focus then on our core competency, which is technology—mobile, IT optimization, integration, wireless issues, among others. Among our partners, they have expertise in manufacturing and retail segments, and they needed technical expertise. We kept the engagement open to the VAR partner, and we work closely with IBM (NYSE:IBM), Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT), but we offer vendor neutrality to our partner. That allows us to grow cost-effectively.

We look at technologies such as WiMax or RFID, and see how those technologies can help in solving business problems out there. We also help our partners or end users to show proof of concept.

CRN: Sounds like you try to foster innovation.

KUMAR: Through our R&D labs, which we call our IDEA lab—Innovative Development of Enterprise Applications—we bring business solutions to using various technology, such as wireless, unified communications, etc. We have different competencies inside the lab, each focusing on different technology.

Recently, we were developing an enterprise 2.0 computing framework for a midsize to large enterprise. During a discussion, senior management made it clear to [first], make it support business growth and [second], show innovation. Every business is looking at bringing out new products and reaching new markets and how to use innovative technology to grow [business]. The IDEA concept helps align those innovative technologies with business gain. IDEA develops prototypes and proofs of concept. It also helps partners to demonstrate the value of their claims.

CRN: What are you hearing about green initiatives?

KUMAR: We did engage our partners to develop a solution for a consumer electronic product in an effort to determine how it could be recycled more effectively.

We are hearing more about "green" in the last few months. But there's not a big push from CIOs at this point. They are talking about consolidation, which can relate to a "green initiative." They need to see how it could make business sense. It's a good opportunity going forward to push other features, like telecommuting and unified communications.

ZSL to launch e-waste management software


New Delhi, India, July 7, 2008 - IT solutions provider ZSL Inc will launch a new software to manage electronic waste in the next three-four months.

ZSL’s Vice-president (Business Development) John Mehrmann said the software is primarily aimed at creating a database of products to be recycled and information on partners involved in the process.

The Chennai-based company expects to launch the software, 'Recycle Accelerator', in the country during October-November.

The new product would help in connecting all the partners, including manufacturers, recyclers, collectors and buyers of the materials for reuse, he added.

The company has already spent about one million dollars for development of Recycle Accelerator and would be investing another one million dollars.

Recycle Accelerator would enable manufacturers, recyclers, collectors and buyers to share information and strengthen communication on tracking, among others.

Further, ZSL would be partnering with makers of electronic products and other service providers to create a network of stakeholders involved in the process of recycling e-waste, and are already in talks with some of them.

ZSL’s Senior Vice-president (Enterprise solutions) Ananth Chaganty said, "Most of the big makers have shown interest in partnering with us. However, they themselves will announce the partnership soon." He, however, did not divulge the name of the companies ZSL is in talks with.

Pointing out that there is not enough awareness about the hazards of e-waste in the country, John Mehrmann said unlike America, India does not have stringent laws to address the issue.

"India is a big luxury dumping ground. People are not aware of the hazards these electronic waste can cause."

The aim is to create awareness and also help them in earning money from proper management of e-waste, he added.

ZSL is also holding discussions with trade associations and the Central government on ways to enhance awareness levels about the benefits of e-waste management.

ZSL software solution to track, recycle e-waste


Helps recyclers connect with manufacturers


John Mehrmann


Chennai, India, July 4, 2008 -Chennai-based ZSL Inc has developed a software solution for tracking and (hence) recycling, e-waste.

To develop the product, ZSL spent a million dollars (Rs 4 crore) and roped in a ‘reverse logistics’ expert, Mr John Mehrmann, who had over two decades of experience working for Toshiba.

To begin with the ‘Recycle Accelerator’ is designed for recyclers to connect (with manufacturers), track, and manage the business. The product supports inventory management by model/serial units, parts, and material weight. E-waste collection agents are working on paper forms, spreadsheets or with no documentation at all. At the first point of product, part and material collection is gathered, and this is a critical first point of data collection.

Initially, when an electronic product is ready for trash, the information is provided by customers to collecting agents for pick up, and later sent for recycling.

Manufacturers are responsible for managing effective recycling programmes, but lack reporting by product, since most incoming goods are only tracked by weight. Manufacturers have not yet created systems to authorise and regulate collectors and recyclers, Mr Mehrmann told Business Line.


Future versions

The future versions of Recycle Accelerator will enable call centres to refer consumers to a collaborative network of collectors and recyclers. Manufacturers will be able to track products received and the effectiveness of recycling. Government agencies will have the ability to audit compliance, track performance, and identify abuse or precious metal theft, he said.


Urgent control

“Recycle Accelerator is a response to the urgent need for e-waste tracking and controls in the US,” says Mr Sudarshan Venkatraman, Chairman and CEO, ZSL.

E-waste collectors, recyclers, manufacturers, government, and consumers are struggling to keep pace with growing awareness and evolving regulations pertaining to e-waste. Most of the US states are formulating stringent laws to control the growing e-waste problem.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, in 2005 discarded electronics totalled about 2 million tonnes. It is estimated that 15-20 per cent of this was recycled. Since electronic equipment contains toxic chemicals, this can pose health and environmental risks, particularly in landfills where toxins may leak into the soil and ground water.


Access to excess

At present, there is software offered by various companies that caters only to the needs of a particular community — say, for an e-waste collection agent. However, ZSL’s solution caters to the entire supply chain and can also be customised for entrepreneurs who want to establish a small business as a collector. It can also be used by individuals who want to participate in the part-time activity of collection for profit or to save the environmental, Mr Mehrmann said.

There is a growing demand for access to raw materials that can be used to produce “the next generation of consumer electronics”. ZSL has created a bridge for material buyers to ‘access the excess’, he said. “Consumers will replace equipment more often in the future, leading to greater e-waste.”

ZSL’s solution covers the entire constituents of the US consumer electronics industry by connecting reverse logistics players, authorised service providers, call centres, parts distributors, manufacturers, government agencies, registration and third party administrators, said Mr Mehrmann.
