“SG Corp’s Novel Online B2B Distribution Model To Set A New Trend”

“SG Corporate Mobility India Pvt Ltd is one of the largest distributors of tablets, mobile phones, accessories, peripherals and monitors, among other things. Established in 2009, SG Corp has its Head Office in Karnal and Corporate Office in Gurgaon (Haryana), and 12 branch offices across India.  With more than 100 employees, SG Corp has business associations with most of the big Mobile and Tablet brands. SG Corp, which has been engaged in traditional channel business, now plans to launch unique B2B online-channel business model.”
Shankar Sharma, Group CEO, SG Corporate, clarifies, “B2B online model is at a nascent stage at present in India, whereas B2C has already evolved a lot relatively and is going towards an impending consolidation of sorts. Due to various factors and challenges inherent in the traditional distribution channel and the comparative ease offered by the online channel, retailers today want to try online dealings and this trend is going to increase in the coming years and online is set to emerge as an essential B2B medium, parallel to the traditional channel. Another huge benefit of Online distribution is that it brings complete transparency on pricing and schemes which is a challenge in the traditional channel. Online distribution, once it becomes a regular thing, will help the retailers save a lot of time and stress. We are expecting that the urban retailers will find it convenient first and then the retailers in the smaller towns will follow suite.”o far online business transactions have been limited to B2C where companies & sellers launch or post their products on the online sites and the customers purchase them through credit cards, debit cards, etc but the role of online at present is extremely limited when it comes to distribution & logistics. Now, SG Corp is working on the novel concept of using online medium for distribution purposes. Shankar Sharma, CEO, SG Corp, in an interaction with NCN magazine shares his company’s policy, plans and mission regarding their new Online B2B Distribution model.
In developed markets like USA and Western Europe, the online B2B models have already taken off but in India, where people do not readily trust and accept online deals, the online B2B channel is still at the infant stage and is expected to take some time before it matures into a mainstream channel.
Shankar Sharma explains, “in this model, B2BAdda will be the e-distributor of the products and will service the orders from retailers and direct customers as received on the portal. We will appoint field force to recruit the retailers and customers as buyers on the portal. The field force will initially hand-hold the customers to register them and bring them to comfort on how to order and manage the process. The brands will be allowed to manage their pricing and schemes through a Brand Panel which will show up on the portal, so all the customers have complete transparency on the effective pricing. The Brands on the other hand will also be able to see the status of their product sales.”
He continues, “B2BAdda will service the orders directly and manage the logistics and collections. The main advantages of this Online Model will be flexibility of time for the customer, visibility & availability. The customer can order goods on the website and price hygiene is maintained as it is mentioned on the site for all.”
The market for mobile gadgets and accessories is very dynamic and getting increasingly competitive. Since the B2B online model is a new innovation, selection of products and brands will be an important determinant in its success. Also good credit policy to the local distributors plays its positive role. In this regard, Shankar Sharma clarifies, “We will try to engage customers who are net savvy. In any case, our field force in the areas of operations will hand-hold the customers to help them get used to this new way of ordering.  It is also important that the customers have good credentials and bank records. We are in touch with certain institutions for credit support, but it takes some time before we come up with our final program.”
Regarding future plans and expectations, Shankar Sharma concludes, “It is too soon to talk about expectations as we are still in the development stage of this B2B model; we will take the plan forward in steps, improving the model based on experience and continuous feedback. Going by the trend, we are sure that this concept will work. .”

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Uncovers Inner Workings Of The Cybercriminal Economy

HPHewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) published “The Business of Hacking,” an extensive report assessing the underlying economy driving cybercrime. The research delivers an in-depth analysis of the motivations behind the attacks adversaries choose to pursue, and the ‘value chain’ illegal organizations have established to expand their reach and maximize profits. Based on this insight, the report also provides actionable recommendations for enterprises to mitigate risk through disruption of these adversary groups.
The profile of typical cyber attackers—and the interconnected nature of their underground economy—have evolved dramatically in the last several years. Adversaries are increasingly leveraging sophisticated management principles in the creation and expansion of their operations to ultimately increase their impact and financial profits, which are both core motivations for nearly all attack groups today. Enterprises can use this inside knowledge against the attackers to disrupt the organizational structure and mitigate their risks.
“Organizations that think of cybersecurity as purely another checkbox to mark, often do not leverage the value in high fidelity cybersecurity intelligence,”said Jyoti Prakash, Country Director, India and SAARC countries, Enterprise Security Products, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “This report gives us a unique perspective on how our adversaries operate and how we can disrupt them at each step of their criminal value chain.”
Today’s adversaries often create a formalized operating model and ‘value chain’ that is very similar to legitimate businesses in structure, and delivers greater ROI for the cybercriminal organization throughout the attack lifecycle. If enterprise-level security leaders, regulators and law enforcement are to disrupt the attackers’ organization, they must first understand every step in the value chain of this underground economy.

‘Assemble In India’ Is Not ‘Make In India’ — Broadband India Forum

BroadBandIndiaForumIn its recent Notification (No 31/2016-Customs) dated 5 May 2016, the Government of India decided to roll back import duties levied on components of mobile phones in the Union Budget 2016. The notification brought down the duty on chargers, batteries and headsets from 29% to 12.5% (at par with that of imported handsets) and lowered the duty on populated PCBs (printed circuit boards) to 0% from 2% (instead of raising it to 12.5%). Broadband India Forum (BIF) – a dedicated Forum with representation from Telecom Service Providers, Technology Providers, R&D and Chip Design Companies, System Integrator, Project Management, Service & Solution Provide, MSO and DTH, Satellite & VSAT Service Providers – in their appeal to the Ministry of Communication and IT, has requested immediate withdrawal of the Import Duty rollback on populated PCBs and phone accessories in the interest of Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Design in India’, as these equipments provide maximum opportunity for design and R&D.
 In its note to DEITY, DIPP and DOT, BIF has submitted that lowering of duty on populated PCBs will be a big dampener for PM Modi’s vision of ‘Design in India’, as PCB provides the most opportunity for design and R&D. The note highlighted that no entity will design and invest in R&D in India if the PCB continues to be imported from China at 0% (zero) duty in fully-manufactured form. Though the increase in duty on imported handsets by 12.5% has increased manufacturing intensity of mobile phones in India from 5 million/year to 100 million/year, the local value addition is hardly 1 to 2%. Therefore, increasing duty on populated PCBs is the next logical step.
 TV Ramachandran, President – Broadband India Forum remarked, “While the industry was hoping the Government moved ahead with its 2015 initiative, this recent  announcement has pushed the country back to the days of phone assembly, instead of progressing to a phased-manufacturing regime. This notification goes against the letter and spirit of the stated intent of the Government, which is to gradually reduce the electronic imports and achieve ‘Net Zero Imports’ by 2020 under ‘Make in India’, as part of the Digital India action plan. Therefore, we request the Government to withdraw this notification immediately.”

The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionizes design, prototyping and manufacturing, and for the first time, delivers superior quality physical parts up to 10 times faster and at half the cost of current 3D print systems. By printing functional parts at the individual voxel level (a voxel is the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel in traditional printing), HP offers customers an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customization.
 “Our 3D printing platform is unique in its ability to address over 340 millionvoxels per second, versus one point at a time, giving our prototyping and manufacturing partners radically faster build speeds, functional parts and breakthrough economics,” said Stephen Nigro, President of HP’s 3D printing business. “The new HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution delivers a combination of speed, quality, and cost never seen in the industry.  Businesses and manufacturers can completely rethink how they design and deliver solutions to their customers.”
 The new HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution leverages HP’s decades of research and expertise in precision mechanics, microfluidics and materials sciences. But no one company, not even one with HP’s unparalleled expertise, scale or assets, can transform the global manufacturing industry alone.HP is proud to have the input and support of leading manufacturers, co-development partners and strategic partners, including Nike, BMW,Autodesk, Jabil, Johnson & Johnson, Materialise, Proto Labs, Shapeways and Siemens
 “BMW is a pioneer and early adopter of innovative technologies in the field of additive manufacturing, especially for prototyping in concept cars and series-like approval builds. For our future roadmap toward serial part production and personal customization, we see major potential in our partnership with HP to investigate this new kind of 3D printing technology at an early stage,” said Jens Ertel, Head of BMW Group Additive Manufacturing Center.

The 6ft cable allows you to easily connect to your Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod to charge the battery or sync with your media library. Normal charge cables limit your phone’s charging capacity due to its short cord length, but PNY’s 6ft cable prevents this problem by allowing you to reach your wall charger or the USB port located on the front/back of most computers. No more tangles or messy cables thanks to its flexible cord and ultra-light weight size. The 6ft lightning charge cable works with iPhones, iPads and iPods.

All the above listed products can be purchased in selected PNY stores across the world. For further information, visit the official PNY website for product details and prices.
