'Re-examination of jobs must in knowledge era'
COIMBATORE: Re-examination of jobs, managers and work processes is a must in knowledge era, Vice-Chancellor, Anna University, Coimbatore, K. Karunakaran, said here on Thursday.
Speaking at the 'First International Conference on Intelligent Information Systems and Management', organised at RVS Group of Engineering and Management Institutions, he said, "the reassessment is necessary because knowledge will form the foundation of successful enterprises in future."
"Knowledge built on intelligent information will allow organisations to be more flexible and better able to adapt to the continuously changing and often complex environment."
This was because intelligent systems helped identify relevant causes of problems, evaluated the benefit of proposed solutions and documented them even where they involved vagueness and uncertainty.
"Intelligent systems focus on how to achieve desired result rather than simply providing data or reports that are required," he said.
Intelligent information systems, when built, should provide support to decision makers with an emphasis on semi-structured and unstructured decisions. It should support managers at all levels and provide integration between levels.
Intelligence would have to be added to the available data to adequately support complex decisions that required interpretation and evaluation to potential consequences and outcomes.
And finally, a friendlier computer interface, including visualisation and multimedia support, would be needed to be incorporated.
M. Durai Singh, Country Business Manager, HP India Sales Private Limited, Bangalore, spoke on the company's green computing initiative and also on how technology got transferred to students. K. Senthil Ganesh, Managing Trustee, RVS Educational Trust, presided over the function.
V. Gunaraj, Principal, Welcomed the gathering. K.V. Kupusamy, Chairman, was present on the occasion.

NEW DELHI: State Bank of India on Wednesday announced that it had plans to raise Rs.20,000 crore through a rights issue along with another Rs.200 crore from bonds this fiscal to fund business growth.

LIC to act as registrar for UID project
MUMBAI: Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) on Wednesday signed a memorandum of understanding with the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to act as a registrar for the delivery of the unique 12-digit identity numbers to customers, making it the first institution other than State governments to sign up with UIDAI.
UIDAI has envisioned the UID as a number that will make it possible for Indian residents to easily establish their identity to facilitate their interaction with various public and private agencies across the country. It is to be based on demographic and biometric data, that is, photograph, fingerprints (all ten fingers) and iris scan of an individual and hence prevents duplication. The UID number has been branded 'Aadhaar' (foundation).
Addressing the media here, LIC Chairman T. S. Vijayan said, "LIC will be able to uniquely identify its customers thereby enhancing its efficiency in service delivery and achieving a high level of effectiveness in various operations. We know how to contact people and that is our strength. With over 14 lakh agents last year, we covered over six crore lives selling 3.88 crore new policies.''
UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani said, "when conceptualising UID, we took a few decisions very early on, one of which was to provide a number and not a card to all Indian residents. The big challenge is to ensure no duplication and so we will use biometrics. We also needed to have the concept of 'online authentication' where an individual comes to a service point and his identity can be verified in seconds. The only equipment required is a mobile phone with a fingerprint reader. We decided to have multiple registrars to give as many UIDs as soon as possible and LIC is appropriate as the first registrar. We are also talking to organisations like the Reserve Bank of India, the Indian Banks' Association (IBA) and the Ministry of Finance.''
He added that the two main matrices of success were the speed of getting more people to have UID numbers and the speed of having them being able to derive value from it. "Inclusion is also most important because there are a few 100 million Indians with no IDs and ID has effectively become a divide between 'haves and have-nots''. The UID project is a platform to bridge that gap.''
According to UIDAI Director General and Mission Director R. S. Sharma, the roll out of the UID numbers is on schedule and would be between August 2010 and February 2011. "We are in the process of setting up back-end business continuity centres in Bangalore and New Delhi. The software is being delivered on time and there is a whole list of empanelled agencies to choose from for data collection.''
Mr. Sharma also clarified that the UID was "as of now only for resident Indians and non-resident Indians and other categories are not covered although the government may decide at a later date to do so.''
