Usage of technology and improved mobility helps e-commerce grow The increasing use of digital technologies in buying and selling merchandise for convenience and mobility pushed e-commerce in India to an inflexion point in 2016. The rapid growth of smartphones and internet connectivity across the country, especially in tier-II and III cities, has given greater access to virtual shopping and e-tailing for the tech-savvy generation and millennials. Even as e-tail behemoths Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon vied for a greater pie of the growing e-commerce market, enterprises and businesses in diverse sectors have joined the bandwagon to hard-sell their products by leveraging digital technology. “E-commerce in India is at an inflexion point, thanks to robust growth in consumer demand. Mobile penetration and increasing use of smartphones have led to the emergence of m-commerce, which accounted for about 40 percent of the sector’s sales this year,” Tata CLiQ Chief Executive Officer Ashutosh Pandey told IANS.
Federal IT Investment Plans United States government agencies will continue to invest hefty sums in cloud computing technology over the next five years. After that period, spending on cloud is likely to moderate, but the amount of investing will remain at impressive levels. Cloud computing is far from mature within the federal government, but it has reached a point at which it is a mainstream component of government IT resources -- a development recently recognized in several forums. "Policy imperatives from the White House, legislative pressure from Congress, and mounting needs for innovation, agility and cost reduction have motivated agencies to expand their use of cloud solutions," said Alex Rossino, senior principal analyst at Deltek, in a federal information technology update last month. There has been significant progress in federal cloud adoption, noted immixGroup, at its Government IT Sales Summit last month.

Best small ecommarce business resolutions in new years The beginning of the new year is a great time for the owners of small ecommerce businesses to take stock and note all they have accomplished the past 12 months.

While most (if not all) proprietors of ecommerce businesses probably have “make more money” and/or “grow the business” on their to-do lists, we wanted to get more specific. Here are their top five digital resolutions.

Vodafone bets on enterprise business to drive growth Vodafone is in talks with a state election commission to provide customised communication services, including a monitoring system that would allow the election commissioner to see as many as 22,000 polling booths at one shot, as India’s second largest telco bets on its enterprise business to drive growth. The talks with the election commission include a mechanism to facilitate payments to all volunteers directly via Vodafone’s mobile wallet, Nick Gliddon, director for business services at Vodafone India, said without naming the state. Vodafone is looking to beef up its enterprise services at a time when its retail mobile business is under intense competitive pressure after the entry of Reliance Jio Infocomm. Vodafone, which worked with the election commission during recent polls in certain places, is also tying up with microfinance firms and startups. Vodafone Business Services contributed 16.4% of Vodafone India revenues in the first half of the current fiscal year.
