HAPPY ENDING – Happy ending is integral part of Indian philosophy.

Finally CBI court has given judgement on criminal culpability in 2G case. As expected no one was found guilty and all accused acquitted from all charges. The CBI court took seven years to arrive at this decision. This decision has strengthened peoples believe that our judicial system, investigating agencies and government in power do not have enough will power and teeth to solve corruption cases. It has really shattered India. Irony is that this verdict has come after supreme court has found allocation of 2G spectrum arbitrary and had cancelled all 122 allocations. I am really happy that re-auction of spectrum has fetched more than 1.70 lakh crores therefore all monetary losses have been recovered back.
Let us talk a bit more about corruption.  The corruption has been the key issue during last 30 years or so and people have voted to root out corrupt governments and install a new government. First and foremost major corruption issue was Bofors deal and congress government was dislodged …

Politics of Love and Anger

Politics is ever changing and new thoughts, issues, slogans and narrative are coined regularly. The latest narrative being coined by Rahul ji is about politics of love and anger.
“We shall defeat Modiji’s politics of anger by love”.
First of all, let us understand politics of “anger” and what is the origin. India got independent on 1947 and since then India has been growing with its own pace. There has been all around development but pace of development has been very slow. As a result of this even today 30% people live below poverty line and 80% of the total wealth lies with 10% of population. Forget about education, health, shelter etc India could not even provide toilet to all its countrymen in last 70 years. This is the achievement of last 70 years. Should we get angry at this pace of development? Why India could not increase the speed of development? Probably India believed in politics of “love”. Everyone was dealt with love. No one had any accountability. Everyone was free to tak…

Impact of new Economic Initiatives on Human Development Index

I believe that no rules or laws are good enough to trigger the behavioral changes. Behavioral changes in Indian society of 120 crore people is the most difficult task for any government. The present government tried to influence the behaviour by implementing Clean India mission but still a long way to go. 

Though most of economic initiatives of Indian government were aimed at arresting circulation of black money and improve tax collection but its side effects are much more encouraging. Oppositions parties are shouting on top of their voice to raise concerns about state of economy but are unable to visualize the real changes on the ground.

I can visualize effects of new economic initiatives on the spending behavior of common Indian citizen. All sections of society are impacted my some or other economic policies. The economic policy can be designed for any purpose but results in curbing circulation of black money and when ever circulation of black money is curbed, it will be felt by in…

How to keep your skills relevant in IT industry

I am really shocked to see a news about suicide by IT professional as he was worried about job security. This is really very bad but the discussion does not stop here. There may be many reasons behind such a grave step and I am not going to discuss them. However, one of the reason could be not able to visualize any future with existing skill set and I would like to discuss about it. IT industry is changing very fast and so is the need to keep the skills relevant with the changing environment and technology. Now the question is what should be done by an IT professional to remain relevant. First and foremost is to develop reading habit. One must be aware of the changing needs of the society and how technology is going to support the changing behavioral pattern of the society at large. The best way to achieve this objective is to subscribe to various newsletters, blogs, industry publications etc. In India government is one of the biggest spender in India and every techie must know what …

SAP has moved beyond ERP

Majority of people who are aware of SAP think that SAP is just an ERP solution, but it is not true. Over the period of last few years SAP is transformed itself. SAP is now providing Cloud Computing and Digital Solutions. Presently more than 50% of comes from non-ERP.
HANA (High performance analytic appliance) was launched by SAP sometime in 2010 and it has been a very successful tool so far. The biggest benefit of this tool is realised by senior management as the provides real time business information which is essential for prompt decision. As we all know that SAP is a costly solution due to very high licencing fees. The cloud version of HANA has resolved this issue as well by offering "Pay per Use" options.
Besides this SAP has also acquired many cloud-centric solutions like Hybris, SuccessFactors, Ariba, Concur and Fieldglass. You will be surprised to know that presently  SAP has more than 200 million users on the cloud.
The core ERP solution is now called S/4HANA. This solu…

Politics of Populism Decoded

India has never witnessed any populist movement since independence. The JP movement in 1977 was closest to populism but it was primarily anti-establishment rather than populist. For the first time since independence we are experiencing populist movement. Many has already described this as anarchy and at the same time some are very optimistic. I think this must be analysed and debated as it touches our daily lives.

Emergence of AAP is truly populist movement, a similar version of this which has been experienced by many countries. Populist movement need not to be tilted towards either left or right. History has examples of fascist like Mussolini and revolutionary like Che Guevara. Both represented two extremes. These leaders were very successful in influencing people against ‘System’ and “Elite” to create a place for themselves. They inspired the young generation and convinced them to become activist to garnered political support. The key characteristics of populist leader is that he i…
