MPCB Portal Developed by Web Werks received a Civil Service Award

one month ago

Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) has initiated several reforms to ease the process of consent approvals for industries in Maharashtra. Recently, MPCB received a Civil Service award for initiating best practices under 'Ease of Doing Business' Project, which is the launch of its new web portal developed to streamline the process of consent application for commencing industries in Maharashtra. The web portal is designed and developed by Web Werks India Pvt. Ltd. The initiation of the web portal also marks a contribution to the 'Make in India' initiative.

 

In order to establish a new industry in Maharashtra, it requires certain important permissions from MPCB to start the operations. If any business is releasing intoxicants in land, water or air, in any form, it needs to get the consent from MPCB.

 

The prime aim of the web portal is to speed up the process of industrialization in Maharashtra by providing the online application for consent approvals, thus simplifying the procedures and cutting down time consumption. It is also developed to ensure that industries stay compliant with the environmental protocols set by the Government in order to reduce pollution. Industries can apply for consent and applications like E-waste, plastic, hazardous waste, biomedical or statutory reports online. The new process will minimize human interface and speed up the process of delivering certificates to industries. The foremost advantage of MPCB web portal is the reduction in processing time, and the disposal period of consent is reduced to 60 days from 120 days. The shortened time limit will encourage more industries to set-up their business in Maharashtra, which will help the state to improve its economic background.

 

To ensure the industries have maintained its pollution under control, MPCB has introduced the web-based 'Randomized Risk Based Inspection and Sampling', which is part of the web portal.

Pros of Software as a Service (SaaS)

3 days ago

Software as a Service (SaaS) is considered as the most thriving branch on the IT market. Analysts from Forrester Research estimated the average market value growth at 56.2% annually and forecast that it will continue to burgeon by 2020 at a speed of 18.9% per year. It does not shock anyone that the SaaS is growing quickly. This type of business model has plenty of advantages that attract new entrepreneurs to follow the very software distribution model. Then again, organizations are all the more eager to pick SaaS over on-premises applications, as it is more gainful and secure arrangement.

What is SaaS?

Software as a service (SaaS) is a software distribution model in which a third-party provider hosts applications and makes them available to customers over the Internet. SaaS is one of three fundamental classes of distributed computing, close by infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS).

 

It eliminates the need for an organization to install and run applications on their devices. This reduces the expense of hardware purchasing, installing and maintenance; as well as software licensing, installation and support.

Benefits of SaaS

  1. Pay Per Use: With Saas, you pay for what you need, without worrying to purchase hardware to host your new applications. Instead of arranging internal resources to install the software, the vendor provides APIs and performs much of the work to get their software working for you. The time to a working solution can drop from months in the traditional model to weeks, days or hours with the SaaS model. In some businesses, IT wants nothing to do with installing and running a sales app. In the case of funding software and its implementation, this can be a make-or-break issue for the sales and marketing budget, so the lower cost really makes the difference.
  2. Automatic updates: Rather than purchasing new programming, clients can depend on a SaaS supplier to consequently perform updates and fix administration.
  3. Eliminates waste of time: Entirely customizable and configurable, SaaS will deliver exactly what your business requires. This eliminates excessive software and disarray as well as streamlines your workforce by saving time.
  4. Scalability: Additional storage or services can be accessed on demand without needing to install new hardware and software.
  5. Work from anywhere: Since the software is hosted on the cloud servers and accessible over the internet, users can access it via mobile devices where they are connected. This includes checking customer order histories prior to a sales call as well as having access to the real time data and real time order while talking to the customers.

SaaS can optimize and enhance your small business is just one step towards your financial freedom and your success both present and future. For more information about the same call us on +91 8828335555 or e-mail us at sales@webwerks.in

Is Cloud the new home for Cyber Criminals How to be Safe

11 days ago

The constant rise in cyber-crime speaks volumes about how they are no less frightful than physical crime. Cyber crimes are growing on a global scale with the treats scenario becoming more sophisticated and complex. In the coming year, programmers will dispatch progressively modern assaults on everything from basic foundation to medicinal gadgets, said Fortinet worldwide security strategist Derek Manky. "We are facing an arms race in terms of security," said Manky. Fortinet provides network security software and services, and its customers include carriers, data centers, enterprises, distributed offices and managed security service providers.

 

Cyber criminals looking to steal data, infect business with malware or simply shut services down are preparing for a new challenge within the cloud. In fact, they are sitting up and planning to attack unsuspecting businesses and their consumers.

 

According to research from a security firm, nearly 80% of large enterprises say that they have been hit by application attacks against their cloud-based systems. This new data suggested the problem has increased 45% since last year. The growth of attacks in the cloud doesn't mean that organizations that use on-premises software deployments are any safer; cyber criminals are still hitting in the traditional environment. But as Cloud web hosting becomes more popular among enterprises, cyber criminals are aiming at the cloud with higher frequency.

 

We cannot ignore the benefits a firm or an individual gets shifting to cloud computing such as saving time, money and resources in comparison to traditional computing. Notwithstanding, with the prospering measure of advantages in cloud computing, comes a few basic issues that have been seen as downsides to this rising innovation and developing prominence of virtualization among organizations could lead them to be the following conceivable focus of cyber criminals.

 

On the very pinnacle of worries with cloud computing has dependably been the issue of information protection and security. At the point when a customer chooses to utilize the utilization of cloud computing, the information is no more with the customer only. The merchant, or the specialist co-op, stores the client's information all alone virtualized server and in that capacity, sellers increase full access to the data accessible, classified or not. Further, the servers are moved outside the customary security edge making it simple for the scope of digital hoodlums. This is a developing concern especially when cloud computing stores delicate information about clients.

 

Likewise, Cloud computing is regularly alluded to as virtual, dynamic and borderless. These components of the cloud assemble another layer of a hazard on the instability over where touchy information dwells. The hazard incorporates the wide conveyance of data crosswise over various locales, each having distinctive lawful systems in regards to information security and protection. This makes it significantly more hard to oversee and manage the data.

 

Following are few cyber crimes every business is subject to and few ideas to prevent them.

Malware entering through the Internet:

Malware from the Internet is acquired either by downloading free projects (which entrepreneurs frequently utilize) or by perusing the Web with a defenseless PC. If you think your PC isn't defenseless? Then, think again! If you have ever declined to refresh Java for any timeframe, your PC was most likely defenseless against cyber attack.

 

Once malware downloads onto the PC from one of these two sources, your PC may now be controlled by a billion-dollar wrongdoing industry. These wrongdoing associations pitch access to your PC, information procured from it (charge cards, passwords, SS numbers, email addresses, restrictive organization data, addresses, financial balance data, access to your ledger, and so on.) and they can even secure your PC to deliver it. They can do this by scrambling the information or limiting access and expecting you to pay many dollars with a MoneyPak card.

 

Malware Via Email:

This is acquired by a fantastically business-like phishing attack. Cyber criminals acquire email records and send messages that seem, by all accounts, to be from legitimate domains and from legitimate organizations. Why is this type of attack so effective? If you get an email from FedEx with the details such as your tracking information or shipped package, you would anticipate that it will originate from something@fedex.com.

 

The fake messages really originated from the fedex.com space, or so it shows up. Cyber criminals really parody the email to demonstrate the legitimate domain. The email is composed in such a manner containing your package details that you will surely open the email and follow the link to claim or track your package. This link contains malware which may then taint your machine, and it can wind up plainly misused much like malware from the Internet. Remember this kind of messages are not only from FedEx; they will ordinarily show up from very much regarded organizations like UPS and even the Better Business Bureau.

 

Social Engineering:

This is also referred to as old style! Here an entrepreneur will get an email who claims to be from Microsoft. In the email, they put up some tale talking about the entrepreneur's PC being traded off and that it should be settled. The person (Cyberhiker) will guide the entrepreneur to take actions on their PC to amend the issues. This usually ends with a window/tab getting your card credentials and access to your PC.

 

The frauds spoke above, usually result in the financial loss; which leads to a loss in business for a long term. Now, the question comes how to prevent your business/organization from this?

 

Back-Up - Guarantee backups are consistently paid for, that they are performing without coming up short, and that they are put away offsite or in the cloud.

 

Always Opt for paid and recognized AntiVirus – Always opt for paid and well recognized Anti virus. Don't go for free or trial versions. They are not safe for your business. Remember not all free things are good.

 

Pay for both Email and Spam Protection – Everyone will agree that having your own domain will make your business look more professional unlike free emails and spam filters. By opting for a paid email and spam filters you are protecting your business more because the spam filtration works better!

 

Stay Updated – One of the notifications in our PC we always ignore is the 'Update'. Please pay attention to this notification. Always keep your system and software updated, else holes can be seen in the security.

 

Reject Unexpected Call or Mails – When we don't answer unknown calls or messages on our phone then why we don't implement this policy on our emails. Never ever entertain those emails who ask for your personal information. This is 99.9% a spam because neither your bank nor any person related to your business will ever ask you such details.

 

Always trust professionals when such issues are generated – Never try to resolve these issues by yourself. Like when you are not well you trust the doctor, similarly, when your system is being attacked by outsider you have to trust 'professional'. Here the IT companies will provide you with the best solutions.

 

With every technology, there will be pros as well as cons. No matter which hosting you opt for there is always a little chance of scams and risks. The above pointers will surely help you to keep your business safe and secure at the same time allowing your business run effectively.

Abolish the Risk of Moving to Cloud!

Cloud computing – broadly recognized by investigators and organizations as a noteworthy constraint in fundamentally modifying the whole IT scene, from how server companies are worked, to how programming is deployed, to how upgrades are handled, and much more.

 

If your company is planning to convert to the cloud but then you are worried about the investments you have made in past for an IT infrastructure, this article will help you in cutting the risk while moving to the cloud. It will help in taking decisions about whether it makes sense to run those systems or workloads in the cloud or on your own data center.

 

While shifting to the cloud, please do remember, you don't have to transfer all your data at a single time. It is not at all a compulsion!

2. Flexibility – If today you are transferring half of your data on the cloud, but tomorrow you decide to fully convert, then you can easily scale up to meet your companies requirement. Similarly, you can scale down if your requirements come down.

 

3. Cost Saving – Since there is flexibility option available you save money. Because to scale up, you don't have to plug-in extra hardware and in a case of scaling down obviously, you save!

 

4. Speed – The more we enter the digital world, the more we realize that speed is critical for decision making, whether positive or negative. Everything in cloud computing is associated and permits quick cooperation, changes are connected in the meantime sent and better utilization of time is likewise felt.

Data Integration Is Different In Clouds

26 days ago

While the interest in cloud computing is at a high level, the use of cloud brings up some fundamental questions, such as how we're going to drive data integration between the on-premise systems and the emerging use of the cloud.

 

Factually, data integration is considered a step after the migration process. Companies migrating to cloud thinks that once the data is uploaded on the remote cloud platforms, then only there's a desire to share or synchronous data among them. As a result to this, the solutions are quick tactical which has no long term value. This solution can be replaced at some point in future.

 

Data integration is a very important part when you are re-hosting some of your data on a remote cloud service. When data across the many functions of a business are integrated together and made accessible, decision makers from the C-level down to the managers at each level are better informed, and thus are able to make better decisions moving forward. In other words, data becomes a strategic asset, and can be leveraged to produce real-time business intelligence!

 

The traditional approaches of data integration don't fit the need of cloud computing. That's because of the use of hybrid cloud i.e; a mix of public as well as private clouds. Here you need a lightweight solution which can handle more types of data. Even, data integration engine should neither be placed in enterprise datacenter nor on the cloud. Data integration in the cloud requires a different kind of security and governance services. Also, you need to encrypt pretty much everything moving to and from systems to clouds. These are just few reason why traditional data integration is different from data integration in clouds.

David Linthicum says that one should approach data integration with cloud computing in one of the two ways:

First, with the understanding that integration is systemic to the solution; thus, you need to design integration into the architecture. This is the optimal approach, but one that enterprises often don't employ due budget and resource limitations (and I've heard many other excuses as well).

 

Second, with the ability to design and create a data integration solution that is retrofitted into the cloud computing solution. This isn't optimal, but it's how many approach integration. It's just a matter of understanding the source and target data and how to deal with semantic mediation, connections and the right integration technology to make this happen.

Do remember that without data integration, cloud-based systems won't provide the value you are looking for! Surely, it won't be cost effective at all.

Hybrid Cloud is the future of cloud hosting

one month ago

Cloud computing has evolved excessively in recent years, but the hybrid cloud is making buzz now. So, can we say that hybrid cloud is the future of cloud hosting?

With time Companies are realizing that they need many different types of Cloud Computing Services in order to meet a variety of customer needs. Hybrid is a solution to these needs. Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing which make use of on-premises, private cloud and outside, public cloud administrations with coordination between the two stages. By allowing workloads to move between private and public clouds as computing needs and costs change, hybrid cloud gives businesses greater flexibility and more data deployment options.

The creating significance of hybrid cloud environment is transforming the whole computing industry and in addition, the way organizations can help innovation in finding. Finance and speed are two factors that are driving this market change.

The two primary models of the cloud are private and public. Numerous associations will utilize a blend of private computing assets (data centers and private clouds)and public services – this is the hybrid cloud condition.

Public Cloud:

A public cloud is a model in which a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over an Internet. Public cloud services can be free or offered on a pay-per-usage model.

Following are few pros of public cloud services:

>> Simple and economical set-up because hardware, applications, and bandwidth costs are covered by the provider.

>> Scalability to meet requirements.

>> No wastage of resources since you are paying for what you use.

Few examples of public cloud are Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), IBM's Blue Cloud, Sun Cloud, Google AppEngine and Windows Azure Services Platform.

Private Cloud:

As the name suggest, private cloud has a very dedicated and closed environment. The private cloud model provide an association more control and protection. Private cloud services are best for the businesses with dynamic or unpredictable computing needs.

Following are few pros of private cloud services:

>> High security and privacy is maintained.

>> Provides you with more control as it is only accessible by a single organization. So, as per the need organization can tailor their solutions.

Hybrid Cloud:

Hybrid is the blend of both, public and private clouds. The objective is to collaborate administrations and information from an assortment of cloud models to make a brought together, robotized, and all around oversaw processing condition. In hybrid cloud services, sensitive and critical data is secured in public cloud. Whereas less sensitive information is put away in public cloud platform.

Forecast about Hybrid Cloud:

The hybrid cloud market is gauged to grow from USD 33.28 Billion in 2016 to USD 91.74 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 22.5% amid the forecast period. 2015 has been considered as the base year for performing market estimation, and forecasting. The developing necessity for associations for light-footed, adaptable, and savvy cloud computing arrangements has expanded the interest for hybrid cloud solutions and services. Along with this, the rising need of standards for interoperability between cloud services and existing systems, increasing demand to avoid vendor lock-in, and increasing digital services and their applications have contributed essentially towards the development of the hybrid cloud market.

Nowadays, organizations are experiencing a significant need for the adoption of hybrid cloud solutions to keep themselves updated with the technological advancements in the cloud market. The Hybrid cloud market is portioned on the premise of districts into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. The market has also been segmented on the basis of verticals into Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI), consumer goods and retail, education, government and public sector, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing, media and entertainment, telecommunication and ITES, and others.

Reasons for choosing Hybrid Cloud:

By choosing hybrid cloud hosting one can get the best of both worlds. Following are few benefits:

>> Hybrid provides cost benefits. Hybrid cloud allows you to more closely match your cost pattern to your revenue/demand pattern, and in the process, move your business from a capital-intensive cost model to an Opex-based model. For instance, if an organization that completely rely on a private cloud after a while feels like to upgrade its infrastructure, the cost will be expensive. Henceforth by dividing the company's data on both the clouds will result in cost efficiency.

Improves security! Businesses can place their secure customer data on the private cloud and combine the high performance and scalability of the cloud to allow them to conduct business and transact payments online all within one seamless, agile and secure environment.

Conclusion:

The future of hybrid cloud depends on two factors:

1) How well the public sector will grow in future! By this I mean, in future if advance features get added to the public cloud making it better in terms of privacy and rate is still low then people will obviously opt for public cloud.

2) Costing of private cloud. If due to the competition the prices of private cloud falls down then chances are high that private will be the first preference of organizations.

Technology is unpredictable! You can predict the future. But right now hybrid is surely a smart solution.

Few benefits of Edge computing.

one month ago

The next big wave in the server innovation is changing computing and its not just about moving to cloud. It is beyond that! But this shift is happening fast because of the cloud computing. This change is happening at the edge of the network and not the core of the data center; a shift that’s evident from the way we are interacting with and controlling devices, to how we’re taking advantage of the cloud, mobility, social networking and big data.

 

In order to stay competitive and to meet the growing demand of response services, IT sectors are leveraging edge computing. You must be wondering what that? In edge computing, sensors, controllers, and other connected devices collect and analyze IoT data themselves, or transmit it to a nearby computing device, such as a server or laptop, for analysis. When this data processing and analysis occurs at the edge of a network, as opposed to a data center or cloud, the data can be immediately analyzed—and put into action.

 

Edge server infrastructures are quite different from data centers and cloud servers infrastructures . In the data center, the typical server lifecycle is five to six years and in the cloud, it’s two to three years at most due to cloud operators making frequent refreshes to keep up with the latest technologies and keep their support costs down. But at the edge, server lifecycles may be from seven to ten years. Systems that need to be on the field that long needs to be designed and serviced differently. For example, system manufacturers need to plan ahead to ensure that spare parts are available for the expected life of edge servers.

 

Edge computing works at the individual device, fleet, or plant level. Following are few benefits of edge computing:

 

  • Real-time or near real-time data analysis: as the data is analyzed at the local device level, not in a distant data center or cloud;
  • Lower operating costs: due to the smaller operational and data management expenses of local devices vs. clouds and data centers;
  • Reduced network traffic: because less data is transmitted from local devices via a network to a data center or cloud, thereby reducing network traffic bottlenecks;
  • Improved application performance: as apps that don’t tolerate latency can achieve lower latency levels on the edge, as opposed to a faraway cloud or data center.

 

Businesses are opting for Edge

The transformation to edge computing is taking place because of following factors: the growth of IoT, the pace of technology-empowered business, and evolving user expectations.

 

Today every company needs easy and fast access to their data to be successful. For instance, a medical store needs to know, which all medicines are in stock, which are getting expired soon, and which needs to be purchased more. This scenario requires speed and scale to support latency-sensitive, machine-to-machine data.

 

When it comes to customers, expectations are always high and brands must be prepared to deliver them. Edge computing allows businesses with a geographically dispersed customer base to deliver the exceptional availability consumers demand, while also enabling data to be shared across the globe instantly. It also enables businesses with remote or branch offices to replicate cloud services locally, improving performance and productivity.

 

Future of Edge

BI Intelligence report states that the manufacturing, utility, energy, and transportation industries are expected to adopt edge computing first, followed by smart cities, agriculture, healthcare and retail.

 

If you think that cloud computing will get close soon due to an edge. Then that's not the case. Cloud computing and edge computing provide significant, yet different, benefits, and smart IT strategists will be sure take full advantage of both.

Understand what will be the future trends in Hybrid Cloud

one month ago

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today many organizations are exploring the cloud to store and manage their data. With wide range options available – private, public and hybrid – Choosing an apt model of cloud computing are challenging. Where public cloud has the advantage of scale and flexibility, the private cloud offers better control and security. With pros and cons that fall somewhere in between the private and public Cloud is a hybrid cloud. Hybrid is the way ahead to maximize the cloud benefit.

 

In order to understand what will be the future trends in hybrid clouding, Forrester Consulting conducted a survey worldwide and compile a report. The research integrates insights from director-level and above IT decision-makers. Although most of the results were expected, a couple of surprises stood out.

 

Benefits of converting to hybrid clouds: In the survey, Forrester found that 38% of 1,000-plus North American and European enterprise infrastructure technology decision-makers said that they are building private clouds, with 32% procuring public cloud services and the remainder planning to implement some form of cloud technology in the next 12 months. 59% of respondent said that they were adopting a hybrid cloud model. They stated three main benefits of hybrid cloud:

1) improved data management,

2) better IT infrastructure management and flexibility,

3) Finest security and compliance.

 

Due to the complexity involved in deploying the hybrid cloud, this result may be surprising. Although deployment is a difficult process, end the result makes it worth. Companies experienced that by compling private and public cloud with their traditional infrastructure, they are getting the best and most cost effective solutions.

 

Type of cloud model depends on the type of workloads: We often wonder which cloud model will be perfect for what kind of workload. Forrester found the expected result for this. Mobile apps and Internet of Things were deployed in public clouds, whereas contact centers and web business applicants were deployed in private cloud. And sensitive, mission critical applications are still deployed on premises.

 

Hybrid cloud has lots of moving parts: According to the survey conducted it shows that the complexity of a multiple cloud environment is the only colossal challenge faced by companies. Approximately 70% of the companies said that security and management complexity were challenging.

 

The seamless transformation between clouds should be provided: No company wants to move their workloads at once. Instead, they want to constantly shuffle between cloud platforms. The report concluded that the most valuable migration capabilities included being able to migrate the workloads based on their best-fit and dynamic relocation of workloads based on excess capacity.

 

Need for valuable features like consistency and integration, costing is not a factor: According to the survey, while searching for cloud vendors and platforms, companies are not sticking to the cost factor. This may come as surprise to few people because while shifting to the cloud, low cost is the stated as the reason. However, according to the survey, the cost is just one factor among many while deciding where to place their workloads. Companies also look for management and security tools (that work across private, public and traditional IT environment), integration with existing IT management tools and cost management capabilities.

 

Consulting a third party is top priority: Along with using software and platforms from third parties, many companies are working with third-party vendors for implementation, on going management/support, strategy and planning.

 

When it comes to cloud computing, requirements differs. That's why many companies are migrating to the hybrid cloud. Increased flexibility and speed, combined with decreased cost are key benefits of migrating to the hybrid cloud. So, if your organization is planning to shift their applications to the hybrid cloud, Web Werks provides a wide range of solutions. The aim is to provide the best hybrid solution for our client.

Data Gravity in the Cloud Industry

2 months ago

Data gravity is a term coined by Dave McCrory stating that data keeps accumulating (building mass) and with that increases the probabilities of additional services and applications being attracted to this data. This is similar to the Law of Gravity. The term was coined to describe the concept that as the mass of data increases, the amount, and speed of services and applications increases as well.

 

As everything get more close to the mass, they move toward the mass at faster velocity and this can be known as the 'pull' of the data. This is one of the reasons for the increase in cloud migration.

 

Data gravity has resulted in increased IT infrastructure scale, which is an added advantage for cloud service providers. Cloud has become the ultimate solution for data migration. Moreover, no other technology can be delivered as cloud and that's what has paved way for cloud. Even businesses have started to gain momentum with cloud-based services. The application developers have shown interest in hosting their application at places where there is already data deluge as this enables them to access a pool of already existing data, which cuts down the need to transit from one environment to another.

 

According to a study, cloud market giants will play a big role in providing cloud services to users, globally. There will be some localized players that will cater to a more localized demand but the big market players will be the one to dominate and occupy most of the industry.

 

Business Association

 

While the data in the cloud environment continues to increase, migrating to the cloud without considering the length and strength of next application might cause issues in the future. It's always recommended to take in account long-term effects of your user base's growth along with the amount of resources the application will demand. In addition there are some crucial considerations that can't be overlooked such as the effect data gravity will have on other applications; issues that will come up if the data cannot be migrated, and so on. Exploring different essential areas can help avoid problems later.

 

Besides this, you need to understand that size of the organization has nothing to do with the size of the outcome. What is more important is choosing the right vendor for your needs. If the base is designed appropriately it can help in achieving timely and compatible business intelligence. It provides the flexibility to shift and administer data so that it can use the information rightly.

 

As businesses grow it produces a large amount of documents that cannot be moved into the dark data. But services from a vendor blends in storage, recover, security, etc, into a single, unified platform that is an best solution for successful businesses. The ultimate aim here is company value and for that it requires careful planning that develops the essential phase by taking into account data gravity in every aspect while designing the business roadmap.
