How are you, Ilon Musk? 14% of Russians sympathize with Tesla


Superjob found out which of the foreign businessmen like Russians. The open poll was attended by 1000 representatives of economically active population from all districts of the country.

Ilon Musk wins the hearts of Russians – 14% of respondents favor CEO Tesla and SpaceX. US President Donald Trump and Microsoft Bill Co-Founder got 6% of the vote
Gates. Steve Jobs is sympathetic to 5% of Russians. 2% of respondents admire the description of the automotive industry – Henry Ford. 1% of Russians sympathize with Virgin Group founder Richard
Branson, investment banker Warren Buffett, Facebook social network founder Mark Zuckerberg, entrepreneur and writer Robert Kyosaki, the first dollar billionaire John Rockefeller and Jack
Founder of Alibaba Group.

In the seven years since the conduct of a similar study, Russians’ sympathy for Ilon Mask has increased many times: from 1% in 2013 to 14% today. There was also some interest in Donald
Trump: 4 and 6% respectively. Russians were less likely to sympathize with Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Richard Branson. They left Barack Obama and George Soros (not mentioned by any respondent).
Beginner of the 2020 rating – Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma.

By the way, Russia’s top-ranked favorite could increase his $ 2.3 billion worth of assets in an hour by raising Tesla’s market capitalization. The value of the stock increased in New York
the stock exchange rose 2.49% to the level of $ 80.99, followed by another 12% to reach $ 649. As a result, Ilona’s state is estimated at $ 36 billion.

Print securely and in full control with Kyocera Net Manager

Print securely and in full control with Kyocera Net Manager


Maxim Belous

No matter how organized business is, it has never been profitable, but nowadays, lack of care in business is tantamount to virtually complete commercial failure. Competitors in any field
enough of them, and many of them do not mind living on other people’s trade secrets. Customers are free to choose from dozens, even hundreds, of similar offers online. In such a situation it is simple
do not do without reliable protection of your data and profound optimization of non-core costs.

The most logical first step on this path is the reorganization of office printing, which many businessmen, unfortunately, do not even think about. But keep away from the humble eyes
Confidential information, as well as material savings, is today quite realistic with minimal financial, time and labor costs – by increasing efficiency
printing and document management. Kyocera’s Kyocera Net Manager (KNM) software is ready to help.

Being a comprehensive integrated platform for optimizing control over printing costs and ensuring enterprise information security, this software acts as a
an intermediate node between digital document creation and storage devices, on the one hand, and printing, scanning, and copying hardware, on the other. The result is sent to
print jobs from any PC, smartphone, or other device connected to the LAN, are pre-processed according to predefined policies, and then
redirect to the optimal printer for this task.

The stage of automatic pre-processing provides, first and foremost, a dramatic increase in information security during the office workflow. With built-in function
Print & Follow documents are in the queue and are waiting for the moment when the employee authorized to get them will personally approach the specified printer or MFI to confirm their readiness
get a printout for him. Thus, virtually eliminating the entry of important papers (preconditions for a contract not yet concluded, for example) is not in the wrong hands, but
hence further leakage of confidential data to competitors.

In addition, clearly tying each page to a clearly defined employee’s account fine-tunes the staff, reducing the organization’s non-core costs
without any additional effort on the part of its management. Nobody dares to use the printed resource in an improper way in the conditions of complete deanonymization of the printing tasks. Moreover,
most often, business owners are truly amazed at the cost reduction after KNM implementation – in the absence of specialized controls it is extremely difficult to evaluate the entire scope
misuse of printing technique by unscrupulous employees.

img

And the fact is that, compared to the turnover of even a small company, a separate cartridge, not to mention a stack of paper, is not prohibitively expensive. Regular replenishment of consumables
materials are perceived by all departments – from the central office accounting department to the last remote branch – as an inevitability. No one particularly monitors the cost of printing,
and it is extremely difficult technically in the absence of special software. As a result, printers and MFPs are operated under heavy load and, unfortunately, are far from always targeted
way.

KNM completely eliminates this problem by automatically monitoring the operation of printing devices and controlling the costs involved. Each job is sent to the printer
recorded in the statistics log on the server. KNM allows you to assign differentiated print policies to any employee and business unit: maximum permissible
the quality of the print, the permission / prohibition of color printing, the limit on the number of pages for a certain period, etc. And in parallel, such a problem as “junk” printing is eliminated. every task
is displayed on the paper only after the mentioned authorization of the employee ready to receive it directly on the printer or MFP: is there still no one more “forgets” ceased to be suddenly necessary
paper in the output trays. Any unused print jobs that are stored in KNM are automatically deleted after some time.

Another important aspect of the organization of office printing and workflow in general is often completely neglected by management: the low efficiency of handling incoming papers. on a routine
Operations such as scanning documents, manually indexing and markup, detecting frequent errors during text recognition are very time consuming. Now, thanks to KNM, it works
to effectively automate these processes and to achieve not only fast and accurate digitization of papers, but also to route the digitally translated documents on pre-specified routes, without
human involvement by forming operational and long-term thematic archives with the ability to search effectively for metadata.

img

Despite the breadth of the KNM’s functional palette, it does not require specially trained staff for its initial setup and regular operation. Administrators and ordinary users of the system
have a well-structured, intuitive interface that provides deep personalization to simplify and accelerate the most commonly performed
printer or MFP tasks. Yes, the integrated authentication tool gives employees access to perform certain tasks by entering a PIN, name / password, or application
VD-cards, if the unit is equipped with the appropriate module. Two-step authentication is also possible – for example, by combining a VD card and a PIN code, which significantly reduces
the likelihood of unauthorized access to print jobs, copying and scanning.

If the MFP is often used to digitize documents with the digital mail being forwarded to a designated folder, fax machine, or e-mail address, to an external
cloud repository or corporate document management system, optimizing these tasks will help the scanner to a function where the function is meant in advance
the destination specified. After that, digital copy delivery (including metadata) will be digitally pressed, which will greatly speed up routine inbound processing
documentation.

A dedicated application for mobile document management is KYOCERA Mobile, which supports both cellphone and tablet printing and later scanning
digital copy to mobile device. Mobile printing, like any other within the KNM controlled office infrastructure, is fully reflected in a sophisticated reporting system.
It keeps detailed statistics of all printed, scanned and copied documents, keeps a record of printing costs with layout for each user separately and in queues, or
projects.

The ability to roam tasks using KNM will be required by large organizations that have large offices and / or have a well-developed affiliate structure. This allows you to choose automatically
closest to the user and best suited to the tasks created by the printer or MFP. Employees, who often need to scan documents, will come to the rescue
separately licensed KNM capability as an intelligent workflow: managing scanning with subsequent text recognition and subsequent automatic sending of digitized
documents to a predefined location (file server folder, cloud storage, mailing address, etc.) according to current metadata.

Another feature of KNM, essential for customers with a developed branch structure, is local print buffering. It allows you to do without print servers in each of the branches by using
only KNM offline login for user authentication and task management. The ability to synchronize users provides support for various authentication methods, including
integration with Azure Active Directory.

If the enterprise LAN needs unloading, KNM provides client spooling – a noticeable reduction in network traffic by spooling up the task on the client PC and releasing it to
any printer. At the same time, users have the ability to print jobs using the functions of offline login, local spooling and KNM Port Monitor
even in the absence of communication with the server, which significantly increases the print resiliency.

System administrators, IB staff, or managers have the ability to archive all printed, copied, and scanned documents using the task archiving feature.
However, for the sake of security, reporting details (job titles, user ID) can only contain the number of prints per department or cost center, providing
thus, anonymity and privacy of tasks.

Before submitting a task to KNM, the user must undergo an authentication procedure that allows them to confidently distinguish even employees working on the same computer. There will be no task
Sent if the selected user’s print limit is exhausted – in which case the user will receive a notification of the current print policies through integration with the KX driver. Unified
Kyocera interface provides KNM integration with other Kyocera software as well as third-party software. Users can view previews of digital imaging tasks in
print queues and individual confirmation of each job, as well as offline login – the printer will cache users’ credentials for seven days,
allows them to copy and print even if the connection to the server is unavailable.

In general, KNM web-based printers provide customers with a particularly convenient way of managing the digitization and output of documents at each level, thereby reducing costs
operation of printing technique and increasing the level of information security. All of this is available virtually out of the box – right after installing the latest Kyocera printing equipment.

In other words, optimization of non-core business expenses should not be delayed, but it just makes sense to start with the office printing infrastructure – for which KNM provides the widest range
opportunities.

How big data helps telecom companies

How big data helps telecom companies


Ilya Semenov

Big Data is changing virtually every area of ​​our lives, and business first. But for some reason, not all companies, even large ones, have switched to using this technology.

As you know, Big Data allows you to analyze the behavior of shoppers or Internet users by tracking which sites they visit, where they are, and where they regularly visit, at which
hours and to whom they call, what programs they download and how they use them, etc.

Big Data and telecom operators

One of the biggest owners of big data in Russia is the telecom operators, through whose billing systems daily flow streams of information about many thousands of subscribers. As a result, they are
really know almost everything about us, down to passport data and phone models. And all this information can be monetized. As soon as the business understands this, Big Data is turning from a trend into a must
have, under which the whole structure of telecommunication operators begins to be rebuilt.

Using Big Data, Operators Increase Revenue: Flexibility of Offers and Context Retains Customers and Attracts New, and Big Data Analytics Enables Product Managers
it is directed to act in accordance with the product development strategy.

But to offer something, we need services that will provide the client with content, and the operator with data on which to analyze and generate new content. The more data, the more
the better you can build a portrait or customer avatar, the better you can analyze. The portrait of the client must be constantly enriched, as many data quickly become out of date on the axis of time.

img

The world around is changing fast, and the model of work of companies should change thereafter. The modern subscriber is the consumer of many services, and the monomodels of work with the user are a thing of the past.
Providing only communication services is not enough – the world is becoming an ecosystem. A true customer-oriented operator, provides converged services, organizes its own
marketplace, interoperability interaction with external services and operators, and its data is syntactically and semantically homogeneous, which gives a marked field for learning models of algorithms
intellectual analysis. Customer-centricity is perceived by the individual: if previously relevant offers were targeted at Group customer segments, now –
to a specific customer. The interoperability of the interaction of services with each other leads to the fact that in a heterogeneous network of heterogeneous services, information becomes equally interpreted and
semantically consistent. Recommendation systems are starting to work more accurately, personalized, using predictive models.

Keeping up-to-date customers requires new technologies, new interfaces, new communications and new content. Subscribers can no longer offer static content – they need it
adjust. This leads to the transformation of the industry. Ecosystems entails the development of various services that are related to communication services. Not only operators, but also,
for example, financial and IT businesses, creating cross-ecosystem competition. New technologies, such as IoT, will help to associate additional activities with the client.
This is a new data source that will enhance the quality of the virtual client model in the carrier’s systems. The client’s transparency will increase, which will allow him to work with him more personalized.

img

Now, carriers collect large amounts of data per subscriber – as structured (actions, events, completed forms, transactions, transactions, purchases, favorite restaurants, websites visited and
etc.) and unstructured (e.g., voice traffic). Any client events are recorded with respect to the time axis.

What Big Data Solve?

Of particular value are the specialized applications in which the data is marked. Their analysis becomes simpler and more accurate. Those operators whose ecosystems have financial and medical services,
you can say they know everything. Any human activity on the Web is a source of new information that participates in forecasting its needs at some point in time. Accumulated data and
environmental data contribute to the development of algorithms for quality content generation. For example, customer geolocation surrounding external geolocation services (such as movie theaters,
restaurants and stores), customer-driven applications on a smartphone, visited resources, spending time in relevant resources and services, the content of those resources are all data sources,
enter the decision support system.

So, the British company JJ Food Service, which supplies food to restaurants and cafes, fills its customers’ shopping carts online based on their shopping history and recommendations,
this takes into account the recipes of establishments, similar orders from other users, etc. About 80% of these goods are actually left in the shopping cart and paid for.

Large retailers, such as Target, identify customers by bank card, name, or email, track their shopping histories, preferences, and activity in
social networks and make appropriate proposals.

img

Big Data is the key to an operator’s future success. Whoever learns to analyze them well will be the winner. Data analysis enables you to make the right decisions. One of the main goals
operators – retaining loyal customers and increasing profitability from one subscriber. We need to work on this. There are great examples of profitable businesses on the market that have focused on big ones
data: for example, Netflix earns up to 75% on purchases of goods offered by the recommendation system, which is based on both collaborative filtering algorithms and
personalized. Amazon is working in the same direction, increasing the profitability of its business.

Regardless of the methods used to handle big data, most tasks are a simple one: identify patterns of subscribers / users and provide appropriate
product or service on time. The operator knows his subscriber better, it is easier for the operator to build a strategy of its development, to estimate potential demand. Big data analytics helps you take it
optimal management decisions and reduce errors.

Big Data Tasks:

  • Customer segmentation by behavioral characteristics (descriptive analytics).

  • Development and launch of new products / services.

  • Formation of predicative proposals.

  • Product / service life cycle forecasting.

  • Speeding up customer service and deciding whether to provide / deny service.

  • Reduced support costs.

Big Data telecoms are used to evaluate the existing subscriber pool and to predict their behavior to adequately expand the list of services. Now subscribers are increasingly calling,
send SMS and use the Internet more. This allows Big Data telecom operators to analyze their customers’ preferences and then offer them
personalized sets, such as downloadable content. Another thing is, not everyone likes that his traffic is being analyzed by anyone, not even a human, but a robot. But this issue is already being addressed in
each country in its own way.

The future behind Big Data

Many telecom operators are already learning to work with big data and offer solutions based on it. But all the fun is ahead. Big Data and machine learning can be used to build intellectual ones
services of analysis of voice data, video stream. By understanding the meaning of language content, you can build online customer interaction. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed
neural network models that have learned to recognize human health by biomarkers in his voice. Video content analysis can be used to classify emotions with application
Deep Learning technologies. The combination of both technologies – audiovisual content recognition – will improve the accuracy and naturalness of communication with the client.

img

The IT market is already offering systems for data analysis and decision making, and we anticipate a technological leap in consumers of these decisions in the coming years. Obviously, the future of the operator
is built on Big Data and AI technologies, including:

  • decision support systems (DSS);

  • predictive analytics and data mining systems;

  • natural language processing systems;

  • systems of language technologies;

  • computer vision systems;

  • process control systems, etc. technology.

Thus, it is safe to say that operators will transform, diversify, develop their services and infrastructure, train their data analysis systems to
fight for the customer and keep him in his ecosystem.

Anna Savelyeva

Russia’s Astra Linux and Mobile Inform Group (MIG) have launched a secure MIG T10 tablet focused on electricity, mining, manufacturing, construction and
transport. The novelty is the older MIG T8 and, according to the manufacturers, is able to withstand 100-degree temperature fluctuations.

The Russian tablet works on Astra Linux Eagle, Astra Linux Smolensk or Windows 10 Pro. Inside the protected domestic solutions not Elbrus or Baikal, which have already been optimized
Astra Linux, and a quad-core Intel Celeron N3450 up to 2.5 GHz. It also houses a 11500 mAh lithium-polymer battery. Can he work 14 hours in the cold at -20
degrees, and 4-5 hours at -30 degrees – a controversial issue, but the manufacturer is confident in this, as well as the fact that the novelty will withstand the fall of 1.2 meters on the concrete floor. But the device accurately supports
Hot swap batteries.

Since this is an industrial device, it must be protected. Digging noted the “special architecture” of the tablet, which should save it from vibrations, shocks and falls. And support
Astra Linux, among other things, makes it safe in the eyes of the FSTEC GIS, the Defense Ministry and the FSB of Russia. Optionally, you can insert a fingerprint scanner to check information, check
identity and biometric data collection right outside.

Potentially, the manufacturer wants to release about 18,000 devices and, in the name of import substitution, identify them to government customers, in anticipation of high demand. It is worth this “unique product” 105 118
rubles. You can also buy on AliExpress, there is a painfully familiar and very similar tablet offered for 45,000
rubles.

In 2020, Apple plans to sell a two billion iPhone

In 2020, Apple plans to sell a two billion iPhone


Nikolay Blinkov

Despite the stagnation of the smartphone market, Apple looks forward to a quick turnaround and a transition to growth in the coming year.

For a long time, Apple did not disclose accurate statistics on the number of devices sold separately, but published data on all devices at the same time, rarely focusing on
the type of operating system installed on the device. But it is no secret that the company generates the main revenue from sales of iOS devices – primarily because of their mass. Among iOS devices
(In 2019, iPadOS has been singled out), virtually all devices sold in 2020 will fall on the iPhone – the share of the 7th-generation iPod Touch is extremely small and does not exceed a few
percent.

IPhone sales over the past few years have been slowly declining in artificial terms, but revenue from their sales has been increasing. This trend remains unchanged for practically several quarters in a row.
Apple’s estimated revenue is $ 275 billion this year, a record high. Apple is highly inspired by smartphone release rates, but notes revenue growth from both
accessories, home appliances, wearable accessories (primarily the Apple Watch). This growth also continues to show positive dynamics.

Having overcome the figure of $ 1 billion smartphone sold in 2016, the company expects to break the new line of $ 2 billion in 2020. However, experts expect this milestone is likely
was overcome in 2021.

The release of the iPhone 9, the successor to the iPhone SE, is expected in March 2020, which in turn was the successor to the unsupported but still very popular iPhone 5s smartphone. reach
this goal depends on the popularity of this model, as well as the popularity of new smartphones, released this fall. In the fall of 2020, a new flagship model iPhone will also be released in
selling. Apple hopes for 5G, a network that has only been launched in a few countries so far.

The iPhone 9, contrary to forecasts, is expected to be one of the cheapest new Apple devices – the base initial price of the device will be $ 475 (according to other forecasts – and at all $ 399). Contrary to the iPhone SE,
having a small screen (4 inches), the iPhone 9 will be sustained in two versions and more like the “inexpensive” iPhone 5C relative to the iPhone 5S as well as the iPhone 9 and iPhone 11 compare.
The press, which evaluated the new device, also described it as the younger iPhone X. The popularity of the new handset, despite the relative cheapness, is questionable – it will more than be a parody of
Android competitors and older iPhone models of different generations.

Rostelecom has invested in an investor

Rostelecom has invested in an investor


Andrey Markeyev

The company became a partner of the Internet Initiatives Development Fund (FRII) by entering into the authorized capital of its investment unit – FRII Invest LLC.

About three years ago, Rostelecom formed a business unit, the purpose of which was the development of new business areas and product segments. One of his activities is working with
internal and external innovation, including the acquisition of large enterprises, joint ventures and start-ups.

According to Alexander Aivazov, Vice President of Rostelecom Business Development, most of the latter came to the company from the FRII and FRIII Invest accelerators.

img


The FRID was created in 2013 by the Agency of Strategic Initiatives on behalf of Vladimir Putin. The Fund invests in technology companies, both in the early stages of their development and at
stages of growth, develops an accelerating program for entrepreneurs and corporations, participates in the development of methods of legal regulation of the venture industry.

FRII Invest invests in technology startups in the early stages of their development.

Over the past five years, the fund has invested 3.87 billion rubles. in more than 420 companies, of which 350 continue to do business to this day, and 50 of them are successfully developing not only in Russia but also in
border.

Among the largest investments of “FRII Invest” is the developer of voice technologies “STAFOROV” (the sum of investments – 217 million rubles), the Manufacturer of portable projectors Cinemood (210 million rubles), the Developer
IT and Financial Services for PimPay Online Stores (RUB 197 million), PlayKey Cloud Game Service (RUB 160 million), Promobot Business Robot Creator (RUB 150 million) And Developer
infrastructure solutions for the analysis of large data sets of UBIC Technologies (150 million rubles).

By 2018, the FRID was the most active player in the venture capital market – they had invested about 43% of all Russian IT deals. But since 2019, when the standard 5-year cycle ended,
investments were no longer being made, although the company had the opportunity and desire to continue working in this area.

Although Rostelecom has extensive expertise in various fields of innovation, technologies and business models are evolving so fast that sometimes even specialists
it is very difficult to understand which of these, today, are only bold ideas, tomorrow will start to conquer markets.

The desire to improve efficiency and find new business growth points have led Rostelecom to a strategic partnership with FRII.

The company’s investments in the authorized capital of “FRII Invest” amounted to 2 billion rubles. The first phase was completed in early 2020, when Rostelecom received 18.36% in FRII Invest. The second stage
started on January 20 and will end by the end of January. As a result, the share of Rostelecom in the capital of FRII Invest will grow to 31.03%.

To date, a special investment committee, consisting of 15 members, 14 of which were independent, has been involved in making investment decisions at the fund.

This practice will continue in the future, with the only difference being that now two representatives of Rostelecom will be part of the investment committee of FRII Invest.

Since the fund has established rules that have led to some of its effectiveness, in the future we do not plan to change either the investment focus or the system of investment decisions.

Director of FRII and FRII Invest Kirill Varlamov notes that the partnership with Rostelecom allows to restart the investment cycle, as it significantly increases the volume of the portfolio, which
provides funding for new Russian startup projects and co-financing existing ones.
