Takeaways from @Dell financial call today... Dell is taking share across the board...will do $90-$92B in revenue this fy. Setting up for tough compare for next year. Dell citing favorable spending environment, assumptions are 2X GDP for IT spend...
Dell citing attractiveness of 1-stop shopping (end-to-end - edge->core->cloud) I surmise their cloud is VMware with AWS...Since EMC transaction, Dell is posturing as a much more strategic supplier than either Dell or EMC was as an independent company.
new sales comp plans implemented by Dell - @JClarkeatDell fingerprints seen on the enterprise storage biz which he took over about 1 yr ago. Storage was sucking wind post EMC transaction & is now gaining share. I think IDC numbers coming out soon showing Dell EMC gains
UCC had opportunity to comment on the #Data.Protection & Privacy Bill. The enactment of this law is long overdue. A comprehensive law on the collection & processing personal information gives effect to the right to Privacy envisaged under Article 27(2) of the Constitution
UCC welcome the protections offered by the Bill in terms of export of data, breach notification requirements, data subjects access rights, automated decision making, compensation and the right to be forgotten and provision for financial and penal sanctions for breach of the law.
Distinction between Data collectors & data controllers.
The Bill should however clarify & distinguish Data Collectors, from Data Processors & Data Controllers. Clause 2 is inconsistent with international good practice which provides for two broad categories of Data Controllers
This thread explores #consumerprotection aspects in the new broadcasting licensing regime. When in full force it will have hallmarks of what is happening else where in the region. Currently, all broadcasting are in advanced stages of signing agreements
There are three fundamental reasons why we regulate: 1. For effective and robust competition (avoid market failure) 2. Protect #consumers (ensure #consumer interests are protected) 3. Ensure widespread access to networks and services (preventing anti-competitive practices
#Consumerprotection in the new PUBLIC SERVICE PROVIDER LICENCE has a pricing condition requiring the Licensee (broadcaster) to within fourteen (14) days after signing the Licence Agreement, to provide @UCC_Official with a copy of its charges for all licensed services.
Our questions to Justice Srikrishna on the concerns and criticisms since Friday evening on #DataProtection here. Of course, there will be more but this covers what has been discussed so far. Thread 👇
1. You mentioned the premise of the report is to unlock the data economy while keeping data of citizens secure and protected. Basically ensure public good plus protect informational privacy. Was this balance all the more needed for a developing economy like India?
2. While you have defined consent, consent is only one of the grounds for processing of personal data. There is provision that allows processing for reasonable purposes,especially allowing the state to process data. Does this give the govt overarching power?
"The Bill broadly does a good job in moving the debate forward on issues of data protection and privacy," writes @VrindaBhandari, "however, the Bill, fails to deal with the issue of surveillance." thequint.com/voices/opinion…
When it comes to #DataProtection ..
Indians must ask for all the rights mentioned in #GDPR from Article 12 to Article 22 ..
If govt don't want to give apply Article 23 .. I won't even press for it ..
Stop writing sham of laws Mr. @rsprasad ..
India demands Real GDPR
#GDPR Article 15 has "Right of access by the data subject" (Screenshot 1)
In Prasad babu's #Dataprotection it become "Right to Reconfirmation and Access"
Huge and Vast differences ..Means, It has no rights at all for the Indians
#GDPR Article 16 Gives CLEAR & UNAMBIGUOUS "Right to rectification"
Prasad Babu's #DataProtection Section 25 becomes "Right to correction etc"
A Wholesome Cocktail of Ambiguous Processes and obfuscations so User may have to wait "from Weeks to Forever" to rectify
Reading the #dataprotection bill from the following point of view
How can the state violate our privacy? Let me count the ways 1. Processing of personal data in the interests of security of the state
(Our current surveillance laws would keep the stasi perfectly happy)
2. For the 'prevention' of offences and contraventions of law.

We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
At the outset of the #Brexit process, most people assumed that a deal on #police and #judicial co-operation was easier to get than one on #trade. Time has shown this is not the case. Ongoing co-op on #JHA is one of the few items yet to be agreed on #withdrawal deal. Why?
Well, because the #EU and #UK's opening positions in the #negotiation are incompatible: Britain wants a #bespoke agreement with the EU, a la #Schengen, but is not willing to accept #ECJ or #EUCharter. EU wants to replicate existing models. What to do?

1. Scope —the law should apply to protect the personal data of all people in India, foreign entities conducting business in India + those outside India processing personal data from india. 2/n
2. Protect all personally identifiable data—do away with the distinction b/w “sensitive personal data” and “personal data”. Protect all personally identifiable data.This means the law will not apply to de-identified data; incentivising de-identification (as techniques evolve) 3/n
