Wednesday, February 8, 2012 Are You Ready (For the Social Business Revolution?)


While social media has become the buzz term of the year, it makes sense that no enterprise can succeed socially unless it becomes a social business internally. A survey conducted by IBM last year found that, indeed, most companies were failing in their social media strategies. But as Gartner analysts have pointed out: "By 2014, refusing to communicate with customers via social channels will be as harmful as ignoring emails or phone calls is today..." (For the full social business story, click here.)

THE 2004 EVENT HELD IN BANGALORE SUGGESTED THAT THE HOST CITY WAS THE FOURTH BEST INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY HUB IN THE WORLD, REPORTED CHILLI BREEZE. "So much has changed in one year that some people are calling Bangalore # 2 after Silicon Valley," Chilli Breeze concluded. Another stat, this time from "Bangalore is India's fifth - largest and fastest - growing city. Until its high-tech boom began in the late 1980s, it was known as the Garden City, with greenery flourishing in its pleasant, temperate climate."

Indians are flocking from all over the country -- and beyond -- to seek work in Bangalore. According to Little India: "Manjunath P. Bijjahalli, president of the Returned Non Resident Indians Association (RNRI) in Bangalore estimates that between 20,000 to 25,000 NRIs have returned to Bangalore in the past three years. He projects the national RNRI population at 70,000.

"'Most NRIs have come to Bangalore as it is the center of IT related work,' Bijjahalli says. Estimates are that between a quarter to a third of professionally active Returned NRIs, have settled in Bangalore. Chennai, Hyderabad and New Delhi, especially the surrounding areas of Noida and Gurgaon, are also popular among returned NRIs..."

As well as Indians, foreigners are also attracted by the bright lights and growth potential of Bangalore. If you are looking for Russian women on the subcontinent, this is a good place to find them.

Indian Space Research Organisation:
Amongst other things Bangalore is the centre for Indian space. As in the exploration of space... Outer Space. The Times Online from the UK reported recently: "Dreams of establishing a manned Moon base could become reality within two decades after India's first lunar mission found evidence of large quantities of water on its surface.
"Data from Chandrayaan-1 also suggests that water is still being formed on the Moon. Scientists said the breakthrough -- to be announced by Nasa at a press conference today -- would change the face of lunar exploration.
"The discovery is a significant boost for India in its space race against China. Dr Mylswamy Annadurai, the mission's project director at the Indian Space Research Organisation in Bangalore, said: "It's very satisfying..."
"The Deep Space Network (DSN) of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) at Byalalu, about 40 km from this tech hub, will take charge of the spacecraft and become a ehotlinef between its payloads and space scientists over the next two years.
"'The ground facilities of the Chandrayaan mission comprising the spacecraft control centre (SSC) at Istrac, DSN and space science data centre (ISSDC) at Byalalu will be the channel of communication, monitoring the spacecraft's health, including its orbit and altitude and conduct its payload operations,' Istrac director S.K. Shivakumar told IANS.
"These three ground facilities will also process the wealth of data from the mission for integrated circuit engineering, integrated circuit manufacturing, hardware engineering, software engineering, hardware manufacturing, facilities and site services, Information Technology (IT), Finance, sales and marketing, ebusiness, supply network, materials, legal, human resources, research and development (r&d) and quality and reliability."

p, an IT professional, who presented a petition to the Indian High Commission on behalf of all those detained after being released on Sunday night.

Indian Institute of Science (IISc)
at some 164 Indians had been picked up during a raid on one building adding they were released following the intervention of the Indian High Commission and proof that they had valid visas.

"Some showed they were working for companies registered in Malaysia's Multi-media Super Corridor, the Information Technology project zone running from Kuala Lumpur to the new development of Cyberjaya, some 45 minutes' drive away, he said.

"'This has been a black day for all of us,' Indian High Commissioner Veena Sikri said addressing the detainees after their release.

""We have taken the matter to the highest authority, and we will get to the bottom of the issue.'

"Police initially denied Indian officials access to the detained Indian nationals, but later relented.

"Several Indians taken into custody showed PTI their passports, pointing out that their visas had been scratched.

"A Malaysian immigration official, who verified the defaced visas, said the individuals and their employers would have to apply to his department for a fresh visa.

"The detainees recounted how police burst into their homes and herded them to a nearby police station, from where some were taken to jail.

"'We were handcuffed and made to kneel or sit in the police station car park, some of us were slapped and kicked,' said Nagaraju Cheekoti, an IT professional working for WWI Malaysia.

"Some said they were ordered to do sit-ups, while others said they were stripped to their underwear, slapped and kicked inside the station. Police confiscated their cell phones and refused them access to telephones.

"Police officials at the Brickfields station refused to speak to PTI.

"'We don't want to stay in this country if we are treated like this. We have come here at the invitation of Malaysian companies,' said one of the detainees to a chorus of approval from other detainees. 'We don't feel safe,' he said..."

"These ethnic divisions corresponded closely to occupational specialisation. For example the South Indian Tamils were predominantly labourers, the majority being employed on rubber estates, though a significant minority worked in Government public works departments. The Telegus were also mainly labourers on the estates, whilst the Malayalee community was divided into those who occupied relatively more skilled labouring positions on the estates and those who were white collar workers or professionals. The North Indians, with the exception of the Sikhs, were mainly merchants and businessmen. For example, the Gujeratis and Sindhis owned some of the most important textile firms in Malaya and Singapore. The Sikhs were either in the police or employed as watchmen.

"There were, in addition, three further ethnic and religious groups whose political and economic importance in Malaya far exceeded their numerical strength. Two were important business communities the Chettiars, a money lending caste from Madras, and the South Indian Muslims (Moplahs and Marakkayars) who were mainly wholesalers. The third group were the Ceylonese Tamils who were employed principally in the lower levels of the Civil Service and in the professions.

"The close correspondence between the ethnic and occupational divisions of the Indian community was inevitably reflected in the community's geographical distribution in Malaya. The South Indian Tamils were concentrated mainly in Perak, Selangor, and Negri Sembilan, on the rubber estates and railways, though a significant proportion found employment on the docks in Penang and Singapore The Telegus were mainly on the rubber estates of Lower Perak and parts of Selangor, while the Malayalees were located predominantly in Lower Perak, Kuala Lumpur, parts of Negri Sembilan, and Johore Bahru. The business communities, the Gujeratis, Sindhis, Chettiars, and South Indian Muslims, were concentrated in the urban areas, principally Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Ipoh, and Singapore. The Ceylon Tamils were also mainly an urban community, though some were found in rural areas working as subordinate staff on the estates...."

The Tamil Nation goes on to record: "Despite the fact that the Indians constitute about 8% of the country's population of 22 million they own less than 2% of its national wealth. According to The Economist (22nd Feb 2003), they make up 14% of its juvenile delinquents, 20% of its wife and child beaters and 41% of its beggars. They make up less than 5% of the successful university applicants. The story of the Indians has been a case of progressive deterioration from the time Malaysia became independent in 1957..."
