Mistry is Tata Power chairman, TCS dy chief [Financial Express (India)]

(Financial Express (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Ratan Tata on Thursday stepped down as chairman of Tata Power after 14 years, handing over reins to Tata Sons chairman-designate Cyrus Mistry. With this, Tata Power became the first company in the $100 billion salt-to-software group to appoint Mistry chairman.

On the same day, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) appointed Mistry as its deputy chairman with immediate effect and chairman-designate. He will take over as chairman on Tata's retirement in December. Mistry has been director of TCS, India's largest IT services exporter and part of the Tata Group. On Wednesday, he took over as deputy chairman of Tata Motors. He is also a director at other group companies like Tata Industries, Tata Steel, Tata Power and Tata Teleservices.

Mistry joined the board of Tata Power last December. He has previously served on the board of Tata Power for 10 years. A director of Tata Sons since 2006, he was appointed deputy chairman of Tata Sons in November 2011.

Mistry was appointed deputy chairman for Tata Motors on Wednesday and is set to head the automaker when Tata retires.

The Tata Group, steeped in India's industrial history and one of the most recognisable brands in the country, was founded by Ratan Tata's great-grandfather Jamshedji Tata.

Mistry, the son of Irish-Parsi construction tycoon Pallonji Mistry, is set to be the sixth chairman of the group and the second not named Tata after Sir Nowroji Saklatvala.

While Mistry may not have the Tata name, the family has many links with the group.

His sister, Aloo, is married to Noel Tata, half-brother of Ratan Tata. The Pallonji family has held a stake in Tata Sons since the 1930s when Mistry's grandfather invested in the company.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
